Welcome to the 189th(or so) BSG PBF on BGG, Constantine.

Constantine always follows Diocletian. That's just the way the world works.

This is a reunion game from the Emperor Series. I'd like to play with Base, Pegasus, and Ionian Nebula. (No NC, No CFB)

Previous games are here
BSG 98 - Trajanus - Part One of the Emperor Series.
BSG 109 - Augustus - Part Two of the Emperor Series
BSG 121 - Hadrianus - Part Three of the Emperor Series
BSG 144 - Antoninus
BSG 162 - Vespasian - The Musical
BSG 176 - Diocletian

Here are the participants:

Player order above is freshly randomized. You may choose a CL. If nobody picks a CL, we'll use the No Symp Varian.

If anyone chooses Cain, I will randomly assign them either Tigh or Adama. (so don't choose Cain.)

You may now choose characters and request any changes to the game options if you're interested.

Nathan, it looks like you're up.

(I'm looking into the 18 card Destiny deck. I may or may not implement it. I'm also thinking of only updating the cards in hand, not the destiny or deck totals on the board.)

Great! Looking forward to it! I'll postpone thinking about my character until I have seen some of the other picks. Maybe I should go pilot this time (though definitely not Anders or Helo this late in turn order).

EDIT: I actually was also thinking about picking a Cylon Leader, but I will not do that this late in turn order. That would just suck.

Frankly, Darrin, I never counted on you having those correct anyway.

That's part of the reason I don't want to do it.

No, it looks like he just recycled the formatting from 144 Antoninus and didn't remove the character headers.

Indeed. I'm a sloppy Cut and Paster. I'll change the banners eventually.

Wooo, new game!

No updates on card piles is fine by me, as is the Cain ban, Are any/all Conflicted Loyalties in the game?

I think we'll go with standard loyalties unless someone has an objection.

So, let's see here. I've been:

Tigh (Military)
Boomer (Pilot)
"Big Guns" Ellen (Political)
"Blown to Crap" Tory (Political) & Roslin (Political)
"Executed Again . . . Naturally" Adama (Military) & Dee (Support)
Zarek (Political)

Methinks it's time I gave Support a try. (Dee doesn't count)

Dee's boring, I still think Cally's too overpowered, so I choose Chief.

C'mon, CFB, I wanna get some of those viper Mark VIIIs out there.

Well if he really doesn't want to be a Pilot I don't mind if we break the character selection rules a little so long as someone else picks at least one pilot afterwards. He could be another support character though.

Then Cally can always shoot the President to come back as a military leader when we have no politicians either

Would be funny if the politician and military leader became Cylons, so it was just 2 cylons, 1 CL and 3 support!

Lol, always a pilot but never the CAG, it seems.

Pieter, did you want to be a pilot?

Having a second support character seems a touch unnecessary, but I can take one I guess if you really wanted to get in a viper. Otherwise, I will probably take Starbuck.

At the moment I do have a preference though it is not a Pilot.

Hay gurl hayyyyy.

Look what I found! It's one of my old portfolio pictures from when I was on Caprica's Next Top Model. Crazy, right? Now I have to sit in these stuffy vipers and shoot at things all day.

I mean, it's kind of the same thing, right?

In both modeling and in piloting, you want to get the perfect shot!


I will choose Kara "Starbuck" Thrace.

I will take a Piloting, a Tactics, and an Engineering.


No need to force Pieter to take a Pilot, I guess, so I might as well continue with my "try all the pilots" tack.

Oops! Sorry, Han, for some reason I thought Pieter was next to choose, that was why I asked him about being a pilot. >.<

Also, are we using the Final Five at all, or are we just eliminating Conflicted Loyalties entirely?

And are we going to use the Random Damage variant that we used last time?

I would like to see FF, it adds some nice deniability and doesn't really complicate things, but I think the idea was not to use any of it from what was said.
