This is the 241st Play-By-Forum Battlestar Galactica game. It will follow the format established by ColtsFan76. It is a 5-player base game only game.

This is my first time modding, as such please keep an eye out for mistakes and note that the first few updates may take longer than usual.

Players

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

The crew consists of:
Valen200 - Invite Accepted
golden_guy_1999 ParadigmShift - Invite Accepted
esus07 Titaniumator - Invite Accepted
jaynova - Invite Accepted
JackBurden - Invite Accepted

Alternates:
If invited players do not respond in a reasonably time (at least 48 hours will be given), alternates can take their place. The current Alternates are:
ParadigmShift (Moved to main crew)
Titaniumator (Moved to main crew)
nuke737


Playing notes


The regulations 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.

2) Please, login at least once a day, preferably more. Note that I have a 24-hour rule in place: when it is your turn to act, I expect you to respond within 24 hours; if not, then I am going to take measures, which may lead to seeking a replacement if your absence was unannounced. If you are going to be offline for longer stretches of time (and that is totally acceptable), please tell us in the thread (or me by geekmail), and we can pause the game if necessary.

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

4) 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 241" and your character name.

5) 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. I will not ask for Strategic Plannings on scouting rolls as long as there are still at least two raptors available. Note that I prefer not to get "public CO's" until all Cylons are known.

6) 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 by geekmail.

7) Please, 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 (preferably in bold) at the top of your post.

8) 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. Easy, quick links to the items on Gerry's geeklist are provided by selwyth in this thread.

9) Please do not post any (big) spoilers for the television series in the thread.

In an attempt to speed up the game, here is the initial player order and the character selection order:

1 golden_guy_1999 ParadigmShift
2 esus07 Titaniumator
3 jaynova
4 Valen200
5 JackBurden

As such, golden_guy_1999 ParadigmShift can choose a character. Once chosen, esus07 can choose according to the rules and so on.

As often as not, I tend to suspect people of being cylons due to play style differences. So, I'm going to outright admit that I have a tendency to latch on to quixotic and/or machiavellian schemes. This has nothing to do with what side I am on.

I also get overly wrapped up in meta logic.

oh, and never let me roll.

When players other than ParadigmShift choose their character, please also say the 3 cards you wish to draw at the start of the game. ParadigmShift will draw 5 cards at the start of turn.

esus07 Titaniumator can choose any character that is not a military leader.

esus07 has not been online for months so I've decided to invite Titaniumator to take the place. Since it hasn't been 48 hours yet esus07 can still have the place if esus07 shows up by 7pm BGG time.

I've also added another alternate, nuke737 in case Titaniumator declines or doesn't show up.

Isn't Baltar's draw 2 Politics, 1 Leadership, 1 Engineering? If so, this isn't valid.

Do you wish to start in space sector 5 (nearer the rear of Galactica and the civilian ships) or sector 6 (nearer the front of Galactica and the cylon ships)?
