Players should grab a copy of the Print n Play and read through it, if they haven't already. We'll use that as our reference.

Note that there's been a small number of rules changes. These are listed below:

Rules changes

You can only play Runes in Action phase. Not in Power / Council phase anymore. Except at the end of the game, for VPs only. At this time, Runes sans VPs count for 1/2 VP each.

You halve and round down up your power for Great Compromise.

Darkness

Castle of Lead give you 1 Rune during power phase if it is in play. It still gives you 1 Rune when placed as well. Castle of Lead cost 3 instead of 4.

Black market doesn't require to read the Rune out loud to every player.

-Great decrees now only cost 1 power, but can't be used on the first turn.
-You get 2 runes when the Sun God exit Hell. Whoever gave permission still get 1 rune.
-Solar Energy give 3 power and no runes.
-Noblesse Oblige only give 1 rune in addition to 1 VP.

Storm
-Inferority Complex let you trade 2 VP for 4 Power in the power phase.
-Whirlwind add a single battle dice whenever you use it.
-Weather control now count itself as part of the power gained.


Etiquette

The game is supposed to be fun, so not too many rules...

When posting your move, please BOLD your Empire name at the top, and BOLD your actual move.

Including how much power you spent, how much power you have left, and who is to take the next move helps a lot.

If you want to include "flavour text", please do so in ITALICS.

Discussion with other players should be in normal text. All discussion to be "above the table" - talk about it on this thread, not privately by geekmail, email, or whatever. Having said that, making and breaking alliances is a big part of this game, so have at it!

Generally, it is easiest to refer to other players by their Empire name. So, Sky, Storm, etc.

An example move might look something like:

Quote:

STORM

Warriors of the Storm Tribe, it is time to rise and protect our Holy Places! Our Enemies press close on all sides! Death and Glory Awaits!

Spend 1 power. Place a Barbarian next to the Shrine on Kylerela.

5 power left.

Sky - I can't let you out of Hell this round, but I'll definitely do so early next turn, if you point one of those lovely Great Decrees my way...

Chaos next.


Dice Rolls

Please use the "Roll" button (above the text box) to add dice rolls as needed. For Battle Dice, the formula Xcustomw{3: miss; 2: Rout; 1: KILL} should work for you. Replace the X with the number of dice to roll.

Interrupts

There are a number of ways to play "out of turn", either through Runes or special abilities. Try to play these interrupts as promptly as you can, and be patient with others who go "oh, after XXX's last move, I want to..."

We'll roll back moves only if absolutely necessary.

Map Updates and Runes

I'll handle map updates, and I'll send details of a webpage to allow you to draw Runes.

Play Order

Seating order is:

Sky > Darkness > Chaos > Storm

Sky as first player chooses whether play goes to left or right.

Any questions, please let me know.

Uz would like nothing more than to see your shining arse to exit my precious Hell, but I'm still not sure if Uz should be the one to help you. Uz will think about it. Uz will eat something while thinking.

Uz could think about the fact that the Great Decrees can be gifted multiple times - basically each round. Maybe that could help persuade Uz.

Question: the travel arrows, do they work for movement only, or do they count for Shanasse, too?

I'd think they are only for movement. That would be thematic, too. Also, the rules say:

Quote:
Many coastal land areas show arrows leading from them across the seas to other areas. These are used in conjunction with movement.

No, they only count for movement. Shanasse, Leap, and similar gifts don't get to use them.

Cheers,
Graham

The problem is getting my Champion out of Hell after he gives Yelm permission. I'll do it if you give me both Great Decrees, Power now and Rune after you exit, and take Call to Justice for one of your gifts and then use it get the Champion out of Hell. Deal?

Edit: even better, Use Call to Justice to get the Champion into Hell, too.

But no foot rub? Are you sure you don't want a foot rub in addition to all that? Uz would ask for a foot rub.

And if you need help with returning your Champion from Hell, Uz is more than happy to return him to your pool and only in a slightly digested state.
