DOCUMENTATION

RULE BOOK
FAQ

PLEASE READ THESE PBF RULES

1. Please do not edit your turn posts. Simply create another post. Non-turn posts may be freely edited.

2. Please bold all turn orders and be as descriptive as possible for those who may want to take their turns before I update the game status.

3. As a courtesy to each other and to keep the game moving, a player's expected to submit his/her turn within 24 to 48 hours after his/her turn comes up.

4. UPDATED! At the start of a round, the player with the First Player Marker goes first. Play then proceeds clockwise around the board. Players must take their turn in turn order (duh, right?), but a player's free to take his/her turn prior to me updating the game status, assuming he/she is able to follow accurately turns that were posted after the latest game status update.

5. NEW! When it's not his/her turn, a player is free to GM me conditional orders that I will execute, if able, when it's his/her turn. Otherwise, the player will need to post his/her turn to the thread when able.

6. A player's turn is considered over and can not be revised when any of the following occur:

a.) the player states so in his turn post (remember, no editing)
b.) the game status is updated
c.) information previously unknown to all/some players has been revealed to all/some players since the current player submitted his/her turn
d.) the next player in turn order submits his turn post

In the case of a conflict, post time stamps will be used to determine which occurred first.

"IT'S A WIZARD, NOT A PURPLE CUBE!"

It helps the atmosphere of the game to stay in character, so to speak. Examples:

A Silverstar agent visits the Blackstaff Tower and recruits a Wizard! (Awesome!)

...as opposed to...

I place an agent on Blackstaff Tower and add a purple cube to my tavern. (Booooooring!)

I send 2 Fighters and 1 Cleric, along with a purse of 4 gold, to Bribe the Dragon! (Awesome!)

...as opposed to...

I return 2 orange cubes, 1 white cube, and 4 gold to the supply to complete the Bribe the Dragon quest. (snore)

So, if you're feeling up to it and want to contribute to the atmosphere of the game, please don't refer to the adventurers as colored cubes. Be creative and earn thumbsup from fellow players and those following the game!

Also, use non-bold for table talk.

REWARDS

Winner: seat in next game
2nd Place: 2 tickets or 1 less than the member(s) with the greatest number of tickets, whichever is greater
3rd Place: 1 ticket or 2 less than the member(s) with the greatest number of tickets, whichever is greater

Whoops! I forgot to give players their starting gold. Game status above has been updated so the factions aren't broke! Thanks to Alex for bringing this to my attention.

I've since sent the invite to the correct address.

Knowing this...

Do you still want to take an action at Aurora's Realms Shop? Please confirm or post a new action! (Chris)

There are rumors of shadowy characters lurking in the newly built section of town called "The Skulkway." Investigate those rumors, and see if you can't convince a few of the more reputable ones there to join us.

The Knights of the Shield send their first agent to the newly minted Skulkway and collect the goodies.

[Since my move is not impacted by what Chris picks as his Building Owner reward, I hope its okay that...]

The City Guard posts a recruiting notice at the Field of Triumph and successfully recruits two fighers into its ranks.

I will hold off until the blueprints of the new building are made available for examination in the Builders Hall.

Cheers, sir!

There are powerful energies swirling through Waterdeep. Head to the Harbor to investigate; should we determine the cause, it will be most advantageous to us down the road.

The Knights of the Shield send their second agent to Waterdeep Harbor and play Arcane Mishap, drawing 4 Intrigue cards.

While on patrol near the Cliffwatch Inn, one of the City Guard is stopped by a cleric, who slips him two gold pieces and insists that the City Guard investigate, and hopefully seal, the Gate to Cyric's Realm.

The City Guard makes a mental note to report back to his superiors after grabbing a drink or two at the in.

*** EDIT ****

That City Guardsman had too much to drink and imagined the whole thing. Instead, another member of the City Guard goes to the Harbor and Bribes Agent Jade at the Cliffwatch Inn, paying two gold pieces to the bank, but grabbing a lead on the Gate to Cyric's Realm and pocketing an intrigue card for good measure.

[Did I get the edit in under the wire?]

Upset with not being Silver, nor Stars, the Silverstars take control of the city at Castle Waterdeep, taking initiative and a bit of intrigue.

Agent Malachite,

I have been hearing distressing rumours that Agent Jade may be compromised by the City Watch. See if these rumours are true. If they are, Agent Jade will need to make things right.

Agent Malachite ventures forth to the Cliffwatch Inn. Agent Jade confesses that there was indeed a bribe attempt, she hands over 2 gold, and the two agents begin to plot how to Thin the City Watch.
