This is the 154th Play-By-Forum Battlestar Galactica game. It will follow the format established by ColtsFan76. It is a 5-player, Exodus Game including Conflicted Loyalties and the Cylon Fleet.

This game is by invite only. The waiting list is being maintained at the BSG PBF Wiki.

Player order:

d10-1 StatSig - Samuel T. Anders
d10-2 neochivlary - Callandra "Cally" Tyrol
d10-3 Tegarend - Tom Zarek
d10-4 I Eat Tables - Felix Gaeta
d10-5 Toofy - Lee "Apollo" Adama

The rules of the game are pretty much as in all the other threads. If this is your first BSG PBF game, please read through at least one of the previous games to get a feeling for how it is done.

Some particular notes for those taking part (you can find more notes and tips on nbergom's geeklist Tips and Tricks of BSG PBF):

1) SUBSCRIBE TO THIS THREAD. And please, login at least once a day, preferably more.

2) All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

3) Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread. Please start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 154" and your character name.

4) To speed up the game, please use Conditional Orders (i.e., geekmail me what you will do if certain circumstances arise). CO's are particularly useful for interrupts, such as Evasive Maneuvers. I will not wait for rare occurrences (e.g., a player using a Strategic Planning on a basestar attack or a viper attacking a raider, or a player using his OPG) unless I have received a CO to that end, or if I feel that discussions in the thread warrant it.

5) Please use the following posting conventions:
* Normal text for discussions.
* Italics for flavor texts.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread or I receive them in geekmail.
Please do not post any spoilers for the television series in the thread.

6) There is no need to change your avatar to match your character. However, I would like you to make clear in each post who your character is by posting a banner at the top of your post. Great banners created by DukeOfEarl are available here (use the "medium" option to display them). If you find using a banner is too much of a hassle (or you are on your phone), at least list your character name in bold at the top of your post.

For flavor, a useful selection of character pictures is hosted on this geeklist by GerryRailBaron, though by all means provide your own if you wish.

My thanks to DaveD and Flyboy Connor, of whom I copied most of the text of this post.

Confirming that I'm in for this game. This will be my first PBF here but I've played PBF games online elsewhere.

In like Flynn. Am I reading correctly that this will be base+Exodus, so no Pegasus? Haven't tried that combination yet, we'll see how it works!

I'm never late for a game. Especially not one with such high stakes.

Never played Anders yet, so let's give him a shot. I'll be useless for a round, but oh well.

I just wanted to go to dental school...

Figured I'd give Cally a try: I've only played her once F2F.

Pleas don't kill me. I've heard she's not the most popular character on the board. blush

I think she's a blast to play. Even with her OPG aside (which is a joy to hold over people's heads when bantering), Cally's every-turn ability is really useful. I think my biggest qualm is simply that, in person, it's hard to remember her disadvantage. But I think she's by far my favorite support character to have in the game.

I'll take Gaeta.

(I can't see the Banner for him in the links section... am I being stupid or are all Exodus characters missing?)

Edit: Found them.

With the Cylon Fleet Board in play and no Pegasus firepower, it might be good to have a second Pilot on board.

Can I just double check: We're using base game ICs, right?

Also would you like COs in for card draws?

Unless you prefer the updated skill cards from Pegasus: Yes currently the ICs from the Base Game are shuffled in.

COs for Draws would be great!

I'm fine with base game ICs since we're not using Peg.

My CO for my draw should be simple. whistle

So, let's discuss my first turn while we wait for the final character draw. While I'd like to go protect the Civvies, I feel like I'd be a sitting duck without any Evasive Maneuvers or Max Firepowers in my hand. I think it'd probably be more prudent for me to at least go to the Research Labs and grab a Tactics. I can be XO'd into a Viper when the Raiders get closer to the Civvies. Thoughts?

I can understand that you want a card, but one card or 0 cards is not an extreme difference - whereas a shot from Weapons Control could at least hurt the basestar or kill a Raider. With Cylon Fleet around, we want to kill these Raiders. Good initial action + good location for XOs, as far as I can see. Alternate would be Command (if we don't get a Cain or Tigh as fifth player). Both IMO better than 1 tactics card.

D'oh, I totally forgot Weapons Control. You're right, that's a better choice. I think I'll target the Basestar, though, to see if we can nullify its launching or weapons systems. We've got time on the Raiders. (Too bad we're not using the Ionian Nebula, then I might be able to hit the basestar AND hit the Raiders. XD )
