Welcome to my Play By Forum campaign!

First of all, many thanks to Pasi for all his work concerning PBF of Imperial Assault.

House Rules
● For mission results, I will only tell what mission rewards were earned, not any optional ones that were not accomplished.
● Limit of Agenda Cards in play (imperial hand and play area, not including agenda side missions): 4. If over the limit, agenda cards must be discarded until at the limit.
● During the Rebel upgrade stage draw half of the appropriate item deck (rounded down) instead of 6 cards.
● When drawing a side mission, players may select the type of mission: Hero (red), Allies (green), Generic (grey). Then I will draw a random card of that type in the current deck.
● About fixing mistakes:
- Rolling a wrong die: If it's a valid action to do, roll the correct die to replace an incorrect one.
- Only consider last dice of each color in a roll if you rolled too many dice.
- If it's an invalid action, the action is void and null. Rewind and perform a valid action.
● If a player leaves the game, the corresponding character looses all learnt ability and the replacing player may spend again the xp.

Hello!

Thank you to Franck for putting this game together. I’ve played many times face to face but this is my first PBF game. So hopefully I don’t make too many mistakes first time around. Once everybody joins we can discuss campaign and heroes.

Hello everyone.

Thanks for the invite. I look forward to another fun pbf campaign. Campaign selection doesn’t matter much to me and I will just roll a random choice if I need to break a tie.

For character I am leaning toward Ko-Tun but it will depend on campaign and other character selections.

Hi!

I’ve played many times face to face but this is also my first PBF game. I would love to learn it.

I vote for HotE.

Character preference:

1. Loku
2. Vinto
3. Jarrod
4. Davith

One of those guys would be great but i am flexible.

Hi guys, thanks for the quick answer. One more player, and we will be ready to start.

You can freely select your characters, but I will warn you if I consider your character as a "weak one" (Saska and Biv essentially).

For new PBF players, please use your smartphone (ofc if you have one) to check in the game often. If you cannot log in for a while (holidays for instance) it's ok, but please warn us.
You are free to discuss any point, but please, use banners to officialize your activations. Use the banner each time if your activation is on multiple answers, or edit your first answer if you prefer (for instance after seeing rolls).

Has CePeU already voted? If so it looks like we are doing HotE.

For characters I’m thinking Drokkatta, Ko-Tun, or Shyla.

Hello all,

thanks for the invite I am eager to play

I allready played Descent 1 by forum. I will need a bit of time and maybe a helpfull hand in getting used to post and play IA by forum (set up of Vasall, how to post correctly and stuff like that) but I think I will get the hang on quickly.

I am on european time and will be able to log in and check in the morning and post moves more towards evening although deviations might happen. Maybe I will get a chance to check during lunch by cell phone.

We started the face to face core campaign and we are maybe half the way finished - and we are loosing terribly as heroes (Fenn, Mak, Diala and Verena - I play Diala) ...

Still the rules are much more streamlined than in Descent and the mostly missing interrupts should make IA by forum really fun to play.

As for selection I do not mind a second core but I am also open for all other choices as they are new to me anyway.

As for heroes I do not mind to play Diala again to try another approach than currently but again I am open to every choice as any hero will be a new experience. I do not mind to play any role (runner, support or brawler) but I probably prefer the more direct approach so the brawler/sniper, runner and support order would be my preferred choice I think.

I would therefore suggest we build around Ian and Erik's preferences and choose 2 additional heroes to fill in the missing blanks/roles.

I hope I covered the most important parts (I am off to checking Ko-tun and the other proposed heroes

I have played in FtF Jabba and HotE in the past year with a friend of mine. There were only the two of us, one playing 4 rebels and one playing the emperor. In both cases, the rebels have lost (though we have switched sides).

In my experience, HotE is a bit harder for rebels, as it is a shorter campaign with few credit rewards. Getting rid of all starting weapons will be difficult, and getting a good T3 weapon will be hard as well.

Well, at least be warned. However, PBF is a different story from FtF play so we'll see! Many rebel groups are doing well in the bgg PBF.

@CePeU, you don't really have to worry about the Vassal Module, as I will post pictures of the game (generally after every empire activation). In the first post, you will find useful links for rules and PBF rolls. I will also maintain many usefull stuff related to the game progression.

Diala is a great hero, that can be played as a support or as a damage dealer. You can also take this opportunity to discover another hero, as many of them are really great!

Heroes with Xp stuff (Drokkata or Davith -- or Biv) should be of great help

I think Murne is a good choice if we don't have much credits since no weapon necessarily required, although works best with a unique ally and a ranged dmg person for Waylay.

1) Jarrod (ranged or melee weapon)
2) Murne
3) Ko-Tun (ranged and also looking good)

Drokkata/Diala/X?

Drokkata seems to have good health and is also able to gain a good Weapon for XP + leaves no one behind for moves, he also would complement the skills in strength

Diala good combo with Ko-Tun and could also dispense focus die?

Any other hero ideas?

Diala is a great support. If we go drokkatta and Jarrod, we will have ranged AOE and good single target melee damage. Certain melee weapons with cleave will give us even more multi target damage. I think we need one more primary shooter and a support.

I’ll be offline for a couple days on a surprise trip. I should be back in time to start the first mission.
