Battlestar NCC 1701 - L.

Flavor text shamelessly stolen from Anna.
The crew from NC-1701 have yet again drifted apart. Buoyed by a timely excape to Kobol, they now try to do a two-fer. Question is - which team will be doubly successful...?
So far, the Cylons are 7-5. Let's see if the humans can even the score.

The standard:
This is a BGG Play by Forum Battlestar Galactica game, using the Pegasus and Exodus expansions and starring 5 players, heading straight for Kobol. The Cylon Fleet will follow closely behind, jumping in whenever possible, but the Ionean Nebula will probably be avoided. Final five / Personal Goals yet to be determined.

It will follow the format established by Our Overlord of Kobol, Brian (ColtsFan76).

Geeklist for this game: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L.

The fine print:
Post typography
* Normal text for dicussions, etc
* Italics for flavour text/fluff - love reading it, not good at doing it myself though.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread.

Images
Avatars change, images don't. Images can be found here.

Players
This game is by invite only - there is a rather long waiting list being maintained here - http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/BSG_PBF

- Rules & Regs for the PBF games apply.
- To make things easier on myself, I will refer to all players by your character name and noun.
- For gamespeed, CO’s are a great way to keep things moving along.
- I will not wait for you to use your OncePerGame unless you say so, and if you’re going to interrupt in favor of the Cylons then please leave a CO beforehand, since I’m not going to check specifically for this every time there’s an attack.
- Interrupts are messier in Pegasus. If more than one of any type is posted, current player decides which one(s) to use. (For instance 2 ICs, or 2 different Reckless options). Better to discuss beforehand what you would like to play.


Players in order:

1. Anna (annab)
2. Billy (billytea)
3. Chris (ckdckd)
4. Gerry (GerryRailBaron)
5. Nate (WallyNate)

We need to decide what options we're using. Here's a poll, modeled on the one Anna did:
Poll: Things to include
1. Game:
Base
Pegasus
Exodus
2. Destination:
Kobol
New Caprica
Ionian Nebula
3. Exodus options (if applicable)
Cylon Fleet Board
Final Five
Personal Goals
4. Houst rule? No new Loyalty cards after distance...
7
8
Tough Luck

Testing...
Is this thing on? Oh.


Hello everybody, welcome to this exciting voyage that we will undertake together. I will do my best to report what we are up to, but for now I am waiting to see who will be occupying the room next door.

What? Yes, I know there is an odd rumour that it might be me, but that is a little premature, don't you think? Of course I would do my very best, should I be placed in a position of trust such as that (and my best is very good, let me assure you), but we still have not seen the final passenger list. Early days and all that.



Tory, signing on.

Re: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L
Okay...so, it seems we are unanimous in wanting both Pegasus and Exodus. A plurality want Kobol (therefore we will not use Allies or Trauma). We will be using the Cylon Fleet Board, and all of Conflicted Loyalties. We seem to have a tie on the house rule question; whoever voted for 8, please change your vote to decide between "7" and "Tough luck".

Re: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L
A note. I love the allies thing, and we've voted it out for BSG 203 but BSG 202 has voted it in 4:1. If I can get the "1 against" to switch places with me, would that be okay with everyone else?

I'll put up some flavour (and choice of starting cards) later, but to keep things moving, my morbid curiosity has got the better of me. I choose Callandra "Guns don't kill people, I do" Henderson.

As I understand it, the one person who voted against in 202 is happy where he is, so I'll happily stay here without allies. No problemo.

Allies that only he can see, perhaps? Unfortunately, Baltar won't be an option for him

Not necessarily, he's 4th in the pecking order right? Unless someone picks a support character or cylon Leader he can go for a politician. Did not see Cally get picked. Put a banner there Spaceman!!!

Re: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L
Okay, the vote's been shifted: no new Loyalty cards after execution if distance is 7 or greater.

Gerry, you're up; choose a Pilot or Support character (or Cylon Leader, although my experience with them is that they're not terrific with 5). Cally and Gaeta, CO's for initial draw would be helpful.

ETA: WallyNate, character selection CO's would be helpful from you as well. If Gerry takes a Pilot you may take any unchosen character (though as before I would suggest not a Leader).

Chuckling: yeah, that could work....



They didn't seem that happy about me being your ally last time brother. Besides, didn't somebody already choose you?

Re: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L


Looks like we'll need a real pilot to lead the air wing.

I choose Kat

Draw 1 tactics, 1 leadership, 1 piloting


Breaker, breaker, bellyacher. KAG reporting in to dust some toasters. Let's ship the silver and polish the birds!

Re: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L
This seems to be a very Exodus-heavy crew.

I have initial draw from Gaeta; I need it from Anders (eta: and Cally).

Re: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L

Oh, wow! Look at this ship, isn't it huge? I'm so excited, I've never been on such a long voyage before! Oh, Tory! Yoohoo, over here! Are you coming too? That's great, I was so worried I wouldn't know anyone. Hugs!

This is so cool. They've asked me to help out fixing vipers and other things. I really want to be a dental technician, but not till I've travelled a bit, you know? You have great teeth, by the way. That's why I signed up, so I could save some money for uni and see some places while I'm at it. Wasn't that a good idea? I heard the academy I'd applied to got bombed or something, so I guess I'll have to choose a new school now. I hope this will help, I think it shows I'm a well-rounded person, don't you think it shows I'm a well-rounded person?

You know, Tory, a hug is like a strangle you haven't finished yet.

It was great catching up, Tory. I'm sure we'll see lots of each other. My friends always said that, you just never know when you'll turn around and find me standing there, right behind you! ...I didn't like it when they said that. I asked them to stop, but they wouldn't. I bet they've stopped know, right?

Ok, I'm off to explore! I wonder if this ship has a spa! I bet Pegasus has a spa. maybe I can get a transfer. See you later, Tory! I'm sure we're going to be besties!


I would like to draw 1 Politics, 1 Leadership and 1 Engineering, ta ever so.

Re: BSG 203: NCC-1701-L

I now have draw from Anders: same as Kat, one of each possible color. And Gaeta draws 1 Politics, 1 Leadership, and 1 Tactics. Initial draws and Loyalty cards have all gone out.

There's a Geeklist linked in the top post now; you can also find a link at the PBF Wiki page.

Here's the board image at start. (As always, I encourage anyone to point out mistakes!)



Tory gets her normal draw: 3 Politics, 1 Leadership, 1 Tactics. By CO she moves to the President's Office and activates it.
