A lot of people want to play as Dracula - I have the following policy on that: Regardless of player order, the first dibs to choose Dracula will go to people who have never played him in a PBF before. After that, I'll let those people pick him who have already had 4 games as hunters since they last were Dracula. I'll randomize the selection order once we have 5 confirmations.

Dracula Preference

Contrary to previous PBFs, player selection for characters will not be entirely random. I will give first preference to Dracula to any previous player who has played and won as Dracula. If there are multiple such players I will randomize between them. It is a King-of-the-Hill style approach that many games are played with in person, or:

To be the fiend, you have to beat the fiend.


Just a note that these are complete contradictions Interesting KOTH rule, although you may want to amend it to "won his last game as Dracula" so that once someone's defeated they're no longer getting automatic Dracula. As-is it's kind of a Dracula-for-life once you get to be him once.

Count me in.

Although I'm not sure I want to be Dracula as I haven't actually played him since, OMG, #8 or 8 months ago!! I think I'd have to play ftf at least once before I jump into this shark pool.

Oh, and a warm welcome to the Mod pool.

I'm pretty tied up in Galactica PBFs right now, so I have to pass.

Good Luck and have fun, though!

Okay. I will wait on the two original invites to respond until tomorrow morning, If I hear nothing or a declined response, both alternates are in.

In any event we have to possible Draculas.

previously rolled 1d1000 = (166) = 166 (Roll for Eruntalon)
previously rolled 1d1000 = (713) = 713 (Roll for dave65)

edit: Dave, you have first choice of Dracula. Should you pass Eruntalon will have the opportunity. Should he pass I will then randomly roll for players who have not played Dracula at all before.



Ok, I will take the bait. devil

Madness! Maybe I will make by ftf group play this weekend!

I played Mina in the last PBF, so the Professor it is this time.

Regarding the other hunters placement, the proposals so far leaves VH or Mina to cover East Europe, which may be bad news if a minion is encountered early. The East is traditionally Lord Godalming's playground. If everyone else is cool with the hunter placement, though, then I would suggest VH covers the East and Mina the UK. Thoughts?

Goldaming should really start in EE, to take full advantage of his 2 dices against agents. Furthermore, he should start in small city, like Sofia.

I'd sugest Mina in UK and VH in Grenada, or some other small spanish city.

Mina reporting for duty!

I agree with Godalming in EE, I could cover UK, should I start in Edinburgh just to make sure? Work my way towards Southern Ports from there.

One can check UK fully in 3 moves (start)Swansea-> Liverpool-> Manchester-> London, if no Feed/DC. Additionaly - only big cities on the way. I strongly advise this, starting in Swansea ; )

Excerpt from the journal of Prof. Abraham Van Helsing, M.D

The cycle of life and death has proceeded without interruption for millenia. Winter follows summer. Summer follows winter. The flora bloom and wither. The fauna breed and die. For the individual, death is the omega of the cycle and all mankind must acknowledge the finality of this in the end. However, ten years ago an encounter with Count Dracula proved the cycle may be broken and thus our understanding of the laws of nature is flawed. Given the evidence of our own eyes, we were foolish to believe that we had ended his inhuman presence in the shadows of the night and he has, in fact, returned. The signs cannot be ignored and I must cut short my anthropological studies of the Andalusian people and contact my agents in the East and my friends in London. This time we must be certain to restore the balance of nature; to complete the broken cycle of life and death.


Van Helsing will start in Granada.

My general advice is

Goldaming - EE, standard.
I may move towards Italy, if Mina skips England (London -> English CHannel) and moves through Le Havre to North Europe and Van Helsing checks Nantes/ C-F/ Geneva and so on, after, perhaps, little trip around Spain.

I also suspect we won't draw events on first turn, right?

Anyone with some other plan?

Sounds spot on to me. Let's make it sweat before it pours blood out its pores!

Unless any Hunter proposes another plan, Doctor Moves to Munich and draws an item.

Moving to Liverpool, drawing an item please.

The journey has begun, and it is a bleak one. My heart yearns for Jonathan, but I know I must delay my travel to the Continent to make sure our beloved ones are save. The fine gentlemen that assist me in this endeavour are relying on me, so I must not disappoint them, for they are Jonathan's friends. Disappointing Jonathan's friends is the same as disappointing Jonathan himself. Oh my dear Jonathan, be strong, now more than ever! I will not rest until I find you.

Didn't we agree on skiping England? And - why only one item, you may draw two.
