Welcome to BSG 272 - Taking a Break From All Your Worries


Pull up a stool, crack open a bottle of your favourite beverage, and join us for a 6-player Pegasus and Exodus game travelling to the Ionian Nebula. We'll be using all Exodus components. Cylon Leaders will be available; if no one chooses one we'll pick a Sympathizer variant by player vote.

This game wouldn't be possible without the efforts of several members of the community, most notably Orphius, who built the modding tools I'll be using, and of course ColtsFan76, who started this whole crazy PBF phenomenon here on BGG in the first place.


General Rules about this PBF
d10-1 Please begin each post with a banner or image of your character. This makes it easier for me, your fellow players, and anyone else who may want to follow this game to figure out who is saying what. Character images are located here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/678577/map-to-gerrys-bsg...

d10-2 Public COs are not permitted.
Please do not post any actions out of turn. If you wish to speed up the game, you can always send me a CO by geekmail.

d10-3 Do not quote or link to other posts that happened more than a page ago, but use your own words to describe what you think happened. In fact, don't even look at posts more than one page back - try to limit any card-counting you might do to your own memory.

d10-4 Role-playing, including funny or thematic posts and pictures, is encouraged and awesome. Just remember to use italics when speaking in-character.

d10-5 Please try to check in at least once per day, preferably more. Allowance will be given for weekends, but failing to check in daily really slows down the game for everyone. If you know you will be gone, please inform the group so we don’t have to worry that you’ve disappeared.


The fine print. Read if this is your first BSG PBF game. Skim if it isn’t.
Post typography
* Normal text for discussions, etc
* Italics for flavour text/fluff - love reading it, keeps the game fun and interesting.
* 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. Please use an image or banner for all of your posts (especially in-character).

- Rules & Regulations for the PBF games apply.
- To make things easier on myself, I will refer to all players by your character name.
- For game speed, 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.

Thanks, Ripshawd, I stole most of this from you...


Going to the Waitlist now...

I'm in if needed.


edit: I just thought I'd add that I'd be open to playing a Cylon Leader if no one else wants to, depending on the no-CL alternatives. It's been a loooong time since I've played a normal Cylon Leader.

Cool theme! So you'll use the alternate rule that every third Crisis is Joe's Bar?

I have invited a few more alternates. If I don't hear from geddoe or Schwade by tomorrow morning (Eastern time zone) we'll start going further down the list.

In any case, it looks like Adria is in for sure, and likely eipiplus.

You guys can start discussing character choices... if you want you can also send me a CO for that, or post a public CO to the thread. This is the only time public COs will be allowed!

Never mind! Looks like we have our 6. Since Schwade already has 2 stars, I'm going to just go ahead and move on.

Welcome, everyone. Here is our player order: (high rolls first)

Sonataluna 1d100 = (99) = 99
geddoe 1d100 = (92) = 92
eipiplus 1d100 = (45) = 45
Mr T 1977 1d100 = (32) = 32
Adria 1d100 = (24) = 24
coriolis 1d100 = (2) = 2

Does anyone really want to play a Cylon Leader?

What are the no-CL options - just the official Symp vs No Symp variant?

And by the way, I don't plan on using any character variants unless you guys really really want to.

I've only played one once in a face-to-face game going to Kobol. I found it hard to influence the outcome so that I could fulfill my agenda, but I wouldn't mind trying again if no one picks one.

Otherwise, a pilot would probably be my first choice, followed by a political leader.

Hi Geddoe,

nice to see you again. Guess we already had some 1 or 2 games together.

Yes, indeed, I would. I played one in the last (Six) and people would have nearly killed me I felt as I managed to bluff a lot about my agenda. Some got little angry. But it is true, I'd rather prefer to play a real character, too. Thus, it will strongly depend about the possible characters I could choose on position 4.

I would not like the No Symp variant, if it stays with no CL, I prefer classical Sypathizer.

I would be happy to leave a Cylon Leader for someone else then.

I'd prefer to play a non-CL character, but I also prefer CL over the other 6-player options so I'd play a CL if no one else wanted to.

Huh, so much choice, that's truely a bother now...

But I fear, I will take my first choice always, because I feel I want to roleplay a bit and there is just one character for that.



Don't worry people of the fleet, the Doctor is on board .... what's that? The Doctor might be copyrighted? You got to be kidding...

Well people of the fleet A doctor is on board, and I promise you, I alone will find a way to Kobol ... what's that again? We ARE already out of Kobol? Why does noone TELL me anything...

Well, whereever we go, I will help you go there...



You mean, WE will help you go there, right Gaius?

Oh great, that already... I am back in my laboraty if someone needs something.

You do remember, I am just in your head, you can't flee from me Gaius



I will play Gaius Baltar

Hi Geddoe.

I also remember a base game in which you played Apollo, it was the first I modded, I believe. Anyway, nice to have you back on board.

And to Adria. Let's see my choices. Can't guarantee a CL.

No worries. coriolis is also interested in a CL so we'll see what's left when it gets to my turn. One of us can take a CL if you don't.



Are we using Cain as-is? No ensuring her Blind Jump is actually blind?
