Welcome to the Battlestar 106: Destiny. I’m Matt, and I’ll be your host for the festivities. This will either be a base game with 5 players or with 6 players following the official No Sympathizer variant found at http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/Battlestar_Gal.... Because we’re not limited with actual loyalty cards, Boomer may be selected as a character.

This will be my first second game as a moderator but I am required by PBF tradition to give thanks to Coltsfan76 who brought BSG to PBF. There are also a lot of others who deserve a lot of credit. I’ll mention Orphius who put together some wonderful automated GIMP and Open Office files which I’ll be using for our game. I would also like to thank DarrinWilliams, as he was the moderator in my first two PBF games and he did a tremendous job. If you’re new to BSG PBF, Nathan has created a nice Geeklist to get you acclimated to the process. It's definitely worth a read or re-read.

Specific Rules for Battlestar 106: Destiny

Please read through the following rules and make sure you agree to them before signing on to play.

1. The destiny deck will initially be comprised of 3 skill cards of each type. Additionally, once the destiny deck is reduced to 5 cards, 2 skill cards of each type will be added to the destiny deck and it will be reshuffled.

2. This will be a gambling game. An ante of 2 is required to participate in this game. You can tip the 2 to this post. The anted will be split evenly by the members of the victorious team.

3. The Quorum hand limit of 10 cards will be in place for this game.

4. Although it isn’t necessary to change your avatar to your character, please use a banner or a picture for your posts, both pictures and banners can be found here Battlestar Galactica - Online BGG Game - Photo Gallery / Avatars

5. I try to keep the pace of the game quick so bookmark this thread and check in often, at least twice a day. Slow games become boring games and if it’s boring for you, imagine what it must be like for the moderator.

6. Orders should be bold. I’ll execute them as soon as I see them. Also if it seems your post was meant to be in bold I will consider it a “de facto” bolded post and treat it as such.

7. Skill Checks: Please observe strict turn order for skill checks. If you send me a Conditional Order (CO), I will play it at the appropriate time. Turn order is not important for interrupts.

8. Strongly consider the use of time saving CO’s, especially for die rolls. Generally speaking I won’t pause for the playing a Strategic Planning for Scouting missions.

9. I like to think of myself as a reasonable fellow and as such I know that everyone has busy lives outside of the Battlestar Galactica PBF. If you’re going to be away for a weekend or unavailable for a while let me know.

Re: BSG - 106 Destiny
There have been a few people who have declined an invitation due to a lack of geekgold. So if you're on the PBF waiting list and willing to play please geekmail me and I'll put you on as an alternate.

Just a word to prospective players, don't let Danath be the Admiral or President, he's a bit of a bossy betty if you know what I mean.

Well, hell, let's get the whole crew back together! I volunteer as an alternate. I am, however, way down on the waiting list so I'm more than happy to let others go first.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Celiborn and Danath were humans in BSG 94 and they were a model of efficiency which led to an easy human victory, and 3 apiece.

Re: BSG - 106 Destiny / Jump the Queue
It's been 24 hours so I'm going to move on. I'm willing to do either a 6 player official no-sympathizer or a 5 player game (can you tell I don't like the sympathizer rule).

vote for either 5 or 6 no sympathizer wrote:

Brother Narsis -
Danath -
Fizzmore -
Celiborn -
Flamethrower49 -


If we vote for 6 player we'll find another.

Re: BSG - 106 Destiny / Jump the Queue
Hello everyone! This is my first PBF game, but I've followed a few of them, so I've got an idea of what to do. Don't worry about my avatar, he's just my butler.

I'd prefer 5 player, but wouldn't strongly object to 6.

Brother Narsis -
Danath -
Fizzmore - 5 player
Celiborn -
Flamethrower49 -

Re: BSG - 106 Destiny / Jump the Queue
Sweet business! Paul, your avatar is going to cause horrible confusion and suspicion. I am ok with either 5 or 6 players. My last PBF game (with Matt and Danath) was a 6-player NS game, and that worked out pretty well -- for the humans, at least.

Can I see my loyalty card first? If I'm a cylon I want a 6 game!

j/k

I like the idea of 5, that gives me more turns.

Re: BSG - 106 Destiny / Jump the Queue
We're playing a 5 player game,

Here is the turn order, randomly determined by the RAND() function in Open Office Spreadsheet:

Celiborn
Flamethrower49
Fizzmore
Brother Narsis
Danath

I know the rules say you draw your initial hand after you see your loyalty cards and if it matters to you, of course you can wait, if it doesn't you can post them when you select your character.

Celiborn, you may select any character.

Re: BSG - 106 Destiny / Jump the Queue
I was strongly considering being Adama and trying out the admiralty. But I do love myself some quorum cards -- they beat two nukes any day. A hot (if imaginary) cylon girlfriend is also a plus. So I choose Gaius Baltar.

I don't draw an initial hand, correct?

Picking 5 is better than picking 4 (sorry Jeff), if anyone picks Chief you have 6 chars to choose from and if none pick Chief you have 5 to choose from.

Yes but we will already have 1 pilot and I'm not sure if I would want to pick another pilot at that point. Being last I don't want to pick Helo so if we have two Political leaders chances are I will be Saul or William.

If we have two Military Leaders then do I pick Zarek or Roslin?

Choices, Choices...
