BSG 595: Byzantine Corruption

Welcome to Battlestar Galactica Play-by-Forum Game 595: Byzantine Corruption!

Kudos and thanks go to ColtsFan76 who got the ball rolling for all of us not too long ago. Thanks also to all the other contributors and players who have developed the support files, images, wikis, and conventions that have made these games the success that they are.

This will be a Base+Pegasus+Daybreak game to Earth with 6 players.

We'll follow the previously established posting conventions as outlined in Nathan's Tips and Tricks for BSG PBF. Specifically, please note:

* Everyone needs to have a copy of the game and the expansions.

* All communication should either be public in the thread or via geekmail to the moderator (i.e. me)

* Use normal text for discussions, etc.

* Use Italics for flavor text/fluff. I like flavor and role-play, so I encourage players to use this liberally.

* Use Bold for an in-game action. I won't process any actions unless bolded in the thread.

* What's bolded is done. Once something is bolded, I will treat it as final. Please don't edit bolded text except to fix typoes.

* Identify the character you're playing as, preferably with a character banner or image. Images for identifying your character can be found at GerryRailBaron's Photo Gallery.

Remember: Bolded decisions are final. Please don't edit them.

If you're unsure about your action, or have a question about possible interactions, don't bold the decision until you've certain. I'm happy to answer queries about rule interactions and so forth.

Posts in an interrupt token will be treated as bolded.

House rules:

I'd like to keep house rules to a minimum, but if there are any particular modifications everyone feels are essential (Pegasus Style ICs), I'm prefectly happy to use them.

Operating assumptions:

Launch Scout: I won't post an interrupt token if this card is played unless humanity is down to their last Raptor. If you want to play a Strategic Planning card on scouting attempts, send in a CO.

OPGs: I generally won't pause for OPG abilities, especially before we reach the sleeper phase, so be sure to send in a CO if you're thinking of using yours. This especially impacts Boomer and Starbuck's OPG. This can be as simple as saying "please pause the game whenever a crisis is revealed for me to consider using my OPG."

Pilots: I prefer not to pause the game when Cylon ships attack, so send me a CO if you have any Evasive Maneuver cards you wish to play. The CO can be as simple as "please pause the game if a viper is hit so I can consider the situation". I also won't pause for Strategic Planning when you attack raiders. Again, send me a CO if you want to use one.

Other combat: I will ask for interrupts when you attack heavies, centurions, basestars or use nukes. Sending in COs will still be useful, though.

Calculations: To avoid revealing information about people's hands, I won't pause for Calculations unless it comes up in discussion beforehand. If you think you might want to play the card (FTL roll, nuke, etc), please send a CO.

Hidden Cylons: As noted above, I won't pause the game when Cylon ships attack, so send me a CO if you want to do some shenanigans with the die roll (e.g., play Strategic Planning when the Basestar fires on Galactica).

COs: As you can see, I'm a big fan of Conditional Orders. COs are good. COs help keep the game moving along. Send in those COs.

No public COs Secrecy is a big part of the game, so I won't entertain any declared actions taken out of turn (i.e., a public CO). Send in a confidential CO if you've already decided on your course of action.
I will make an exception for the TANK option during the interrupt stage of a skill check, which will mean "Pass on playing cards into the check if no-one before me plays any cards."

Checking in: I like to run a quick game. Really, really quick. Please be sure you can check in at least once a day, but preferably multiple times a day. Please inform us if you'll be out of touch for more than 24 hours.

Thanks to TerminusEst, from who I borrowed the opening text.

Radtrooper - d1000 = (234) = 234
Daimbert - d1000 = (83) = 83
smaug007 - d1000 = (859) = 859
brunoreturns - d1000 = (857) = 857
IriDiuM84 - d1000 = (34) = 34
bobc358 - d1000 = (856) = 856

I've added the turn order to the opening post

smaug007, you are up to select our character

Available characters

Military Leaders:
Helena Cain, William Adama, Saul Tigh, Karl “Helo” Agathon (Base game vesion), Louis Hoshi, Tom Zarek (Daybreak version)

Political Leaders:
Laura Roslin, Gaius Baltar (Base game version), Lee Adama (Daybreak version), Tom Zarek (Base game version), Romo Lampkin, Ellen Tigh

Pilots
Lee “Apollo” Adama (Base game version), Kara “Starbuck” Thrace, Louanne “Kat” Katraine, Karl “Helo” Agathon (Daybreak version), Sharon “Boomer” Valerii, Brendan “Hot Dog” Costanza

Support
Anastasia “Dee” Dualla, “Chief” Galen Tyrol, Sherman “Doc” Cottle, Gaius Baltar (Daybreak version)

Cylon Leaders
Aaron Doral, "Caprica" Six, Cavil, D'Anna Biers, Leoben Conoy, Sharon "Athena" Agathon, Simon O'Neill


Since this is a Daybreak game, if no-one selects a Cylon leader, we will use the Mutineer.

Wow, using D1000s and still 3 ppl were within 3 of each other.

If say go ahead and pick a CL if you want to, I'm certainly not going to be able to take one sitting here in last laugh

I don't really care, so if you want to take a CL, feel free, and if you don't, someone else probably will or we'll go with Mutineer.

I am considering it. It has been a while since I played one. Chances are that if you don't pick one, someone else will.

I've never played one online before, so if I have a shot i'll take it, but I won't at all begrudge you for taking one... to the high rollers go the spoils!

Since no one has come straight out and distinctly asked me not to pick one because they desperately/really wanted to play one (sorry if I misunderstood/misinterpreted you both, brunoreturns and bobc358), and since I've actually never played one before, I'll give Simon O'Neill a go.

By CO, brunoreturns chooses Louis Hoshi

bobc358, you're up to select from the Political Leader, Pilot or Support options.

Ok, taking a look at what we're lacking, its probably Politics and Engineering. If Lee is drawing mostly Leadership looking for XOs, we actually have no source of Politics at all. That, and discounting Simon, we only have Hoshi for Engineering.

I think there's only one man who can solve this draw issue...



But which version to go....? Let's let the geekroller decide

1custom2{Political Baltar;Cultar;} -> ( Political Baltar) -> ( Political Baltar)

Political Baltar it is. I'll take 2 Politics, 1 Leadership for start draw please.
