Ok guys!

Hope you're still with us. First of all, thanks for joining

I'm quite sure this will be great fun. Now for some basic rules:

- We are playing advanced rules, this means that negotiations are free and the loot will be divided according to deals discussed among players.

- Players may lie about information they have (e.g. promise more VP's than actually available)

- Players may lie about there intentions of using items

- Remember! The first player to place all his thiefs will receive 1 VP and the 2nd to place all his thiefs will be starting player of raid-phase

- Remember! If after a raid phase, there are still thiefs remaining in the hideouts, the one player who has the most thiefs in any of the red hideouts, receives and additional thief as bonus!

- In order to speed up game play a bit we can also agree to the following, in case one of you buys an item and receives the "Botengewand" (the card which allows you to change direction of the coach), that player may Geekmail me in advance as soon as he knows when he wants to play that card, in this case, should the player not be around I can simply proceed game play properly.

Now! How will we manage negotiations? Since this is PBF, negotiations may feel much less intuitive than when playing around the table. I thought of the following solution:

- If the active player wants to offer a deal, no problem there, he just needs to post something like "I need 3 more thiefs to join me in hideout Y1, who ever joins will get 3 gold and 2 VPs", to this, all other players may respond with "accept" or "pass" (there is no particular order necessary, players post as soon as they may, regardless of the playing order), if one player accepts, the deal is held consumed only after all other players posted "pass", this gives any other player the chance to respond with something like "I'm interested and accept only 2 gold instead of 3 to join my 3 thiefs to your cause". Active player decides and players need to pass again. As soon as all players passed, deal is concluded and I post the necessary updates.

- If the active player isn't interested in proposing any deals, he may simply post "place 2 thiefs in hideout L2" all other players post "pass" or propose a deal to active player and we proceed as above.



Here is the map just as reference so you know the order of hideouts, the letter refers to the city and the number refers to the order of hideouts in direction CITY > CROSSROAD:


-------------------------------York
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|-----(Y1)
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
_________(D2)____(D4/Y3) (Y2/L3)___________(L1)___

Derby----------------------------------------------------Lincoln

___(D1)__________(D3/N3) (N4/L4)___(L2)___________
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|-----(N2)
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
-----------------------------(N1)---|
------------------------------|------|

-----------------------------Nottingham

-D3/N3
-N4/L4
-L3/Y2
-Y3/D4
-N1
-N2
-D1
-D2
-Y1
-L1
-L2

Here I will keep track of who has placed thiefs and where


- open card (instead of open card I'll write the name of the card + stats)
- card 1
- card 2
- card 3
- card 4
- card 5

Here I will keep track of who peeked at which card
- Side note to card peeking: in the game you have only two cubes, but you are still allowed to peek at more cards than just two, but only the ones with your cubes where the ones you could check again, the other ones you'd simply had to remember. In this case I think it makes sense to ignore the limit of the cubes since I'm mailing you the info, this means you can read that whenever you like, I still am going to keep track of who's seen which card.

Please suggest any modification to these guidelines or any addition you think may help.

And that's it for now! Please sign up, choose colour and I'll set up the game so we can start!

Cheers,
Pedro.

Brilliant! We can finally start everyone!

So here is the set up as follows:

Map overview:

-------------------------------York
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|-----(Y1)
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
_________(D2)____(D4/Y3) (Y2/L3)___________(L1)___

Derby----------------------------------------------------Lincoln

___(D1)__________(D3/N3) (N4/L4)___(L2)___________
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|-----(N2)
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
------------------------------|------|
-----------------------------(N1)---|
------------------------------|------|

-----------------------------Nottingham


Hideouts:

-D3/N3:
-N4/L4:
-L3/Y2:
-Y3/D4:
-N1:
-N2:
-D1:
-D2:
-Y1:
-L1:
-L2:


Other places:

-Church (1VP/Gold):
-Inn (look at travel cards):
-Merchant (1 item for 1 gold): 1
-Market (recruit 1 thief for 2 gold):


Travel Cards:

- Mann in Not (N>D): Str:4/VPs:2/recruit 1 thief
- card 2
- card 3
- card 4
- card 5 1
- card 6

Order of play (I kept the order according to sign ups in this thread, only starting player was selected randomly):

- Magritte
- LuisDantas
- VALIS13
- Marshduck
- Pizza the Hutt

All players have:

- Thiefs: 4
- Gold: 2
- Items: 0
- VPs: 0

Few rules recaps as reminders:

- You can hold a max. of 3 items.
- you can only use 1 item per thief in any hideout.
- First player to use up his thiefs gets 1 VP.
- Second player to use up his thiefs is starting player during raid round.
- if you have more than 5 Gold at round end, your first action in the next round is the church action (no player may have more than 5 Gold at round start).
- We play 3 rounds with travel cards A + 3 with travel cards B.
- The starting player during planning phase will be the player who starts with less Gold (except if it is the same player as previous round, no player may be start player twice in a row), if there is a draw among 2 or more players, the one closest to the previous starting player gets to start this round.
- Negotiations are public, always! Post your negotiations on this thread please!
- I'll update everything as often as I can (tomorrow [wednesday] I'll have a bit of a busy day, so it might take a bit).

I think that's about it!


Magritte you may start whenever you like!

Let there be lies and stabbings from behind!

GeekMail has been send to Magritte.

I just remembered, I think it would be quite useful if after every action each player could add the following information to his post:

I now have:

Thiefs: 3
Gold: 1
Items: 1
VPs: 0

So I just did it for Magritte this is good for players to keep track of their own and other player's resources during the round.

Hey guys!

I just GMed Alan about his turn. Sometimes we have personal stuff popping up out of nowhere disabling us to check these kind of things, so let's hope everything's ok. For now I came up with another solution. We could simply change player order with no player being really hurt by this:

- Magritte
- LuisDantas
- VALIS13
- Marshduck
- Pizza the Hutt

would change to:

- Magritte
- LuisDantas
- Marshduck
- Pizza the Hutt
- VALIS13

If you all agree I'd say Marshduck could make his move, and let's hope until his turn, Alan shows up again. So...

Marshduck, if you will?
