Okay, boys and girls!


Let's get this party started! I'll be your host for this cruise.

Not going to bother posting rules! If you don't know how this works by now, there's not much hope for you.

But we will have a poll about options:

Poll
1. Game:
Base
Pegasus
Exodus
2. Destination
Kobol
New Caprica
Ionian Nebula
3. Exodus options (if applicable)
Cylon Fleet Board
Personal Goals
Final Five cards
4. House rule? No new Loyalty cards after distance...
7
8
Tough luck
      6 answers
Poll created by David Goldfarb


And we will randomize player order:

Gerry
Nate
Alain
Kendall
Greg

(Oh, and Kendall, you needn't worry in the least that how I treat you this game will be influenced by how you treat me and Alain over in Mountains of Madness. The very thought of holding that over your head had not occurred to me. You can feel completely and totally secure.)

We'll now take a break until everyone's voted in the poll; once we know what characters are available, Gerry can choose one. Feel free to send in CO's, if you like.

Thank you, and enjoy!

Well, I'm glad you took that weight off my mind. I always need the reassurance on that front.

Note to Gerry when he gets up and sees this: looks like all existing characters will be in play.

Oh yeah: and everyone, when you choose a character, please specify your starting draw. (If you really want to wait and see what character everyone takes, before you do, then you can.)

Helo Or he would be known in any Gilbert & Sullivan version of this party: He-ro (oh god, I'm flashing on cross dressing bajorans now!)

Make it Helo, just Helo. No cards, just a handful of counter-rad meds.

Gotta Run (it's in the damn contract!)

Well if we're going with a running motif, I'll have to go with Cally "Action" Henderson



Edit: And I will take 1 Politics, 1 Leadership, and 1 Engineering.

Okay, everybody: we now have a geeklist over here -- NCC-1701 Q "The Continuum"

Loyalty cards and initial draw have gone out to all players except Helo. We have both Final Five and Personal Goals this game.

Oh yeah! I forgot to give everyone their trauma. Look for it in your mailbox soonish.

Our initial three allies are: Ellen Tigh, in the Admiral's Quarters; Kat, in the Hangar Deck; and Crashdown, in the Armory.

Here's the board right at the very start of the game:


Apollo, I'm assuming that you want to start in sector 5. If you'd rather be in sector 6, let me know ASAP.

Sector 5 is fine. Sorry about that.

Okay, while Helo is running desperately for his life on Caprica
the fleet is having to deal with Widespread Starvation. Madame President, you face the first decision of your career.

Hottie is right! But how is it that you're " in the house?" when I see you right here?
Are you flying Raptors back & forth? If so, can you give me a ride?

Um. well yeah, okay, yes you've been giving me rides. And great ones they are, too!

But I mean a ride in space!

What?

Well of course "there too", but I really meant "a ride back to the Galactica".


===============================================================

Sheesh: the "or" is kinda like an automatic Zarek, pop for food swap!
Maybe we should take it, just because it uses an unavailable OPG?

I choose to split the loss. -1 food, -1 pop.

Don't really want to lose two food on the very first turn.

Some of the fleet's hoarded food is dispensed, but that doesn't stop some people from just dying of starvation.

Meanwhile the Raiders in sector 1 move to sector 2. But at least the jump prep advances.

Geeklist updated here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/99445/item/1973350#ite...

Here's the board image:

Cally gets her normal draw of 1 Politics, 1 Leadership, 1 Tactics, and 2 Engineering. Cally, please post a move and action when you're ready.

Oh frak, Kat's coming my way. I don't have her new supply in yet, and she looks like she's about to freak the frak out. I better get out of here...and arm myself.

I'll let the pilots encounter Kat, since I can't really benefit from her benevolence.

Move: Armory
Encounter: Crashdown
Action: 1-Launch Scout on Crisis Deck

Pass on interrupts

Crashdown is all smiles. "Hey there, Cally! I've just been out scouting, and listen to what I found..."



Top destination sent. Cally, please post top or bottom.

Racetrack is with him. "You can stay here and chat if you want, Crashdown, but I gotta get to the CIC to report."

Margaret "Racetrack" Edmondson is now in Weapons Control. Cally, how is she feeling?

Meanwhile, a token for the scouting.

Cally grabs Crashdown's scouting reports out of his hands. "What the frak is this, Crashdown? We can frakkin well do a better job of scouting than this" Cally throws the report to the ground, pulls out her new blaster, and blasts a few holes in the report. "Try again, but don't scout someplace dumb this time."

Throw it to the ground (bottom)

Trauma sent!

Let's scout then: 1d8 = (8) = 8

Success.

Crashdown gathers up some of the report pages. "Here's some stuff you missed, Cally. See if you want to blast that too."
