Lampkin: Lee said you once gave him something before a mission, a lighter.

Adama: Belonged to my father. Foolish to think a hunk of metal could keep him safe.

Lampkin: And yet that's what we do isn't it. Hang onto hope in every hopelessly irrational way that we can...



Welcome to BSG PBF 295 A Disease of Hoping. It will be a 5-player Base game newbie cruise.

This was made possible by ColtsFan76 and he has my undying thanks for that. I will also be using the Open Office spreadsheet and GIMP files from Orphius and JasperHawk. I think they are amazing.

For info on PBF see - Tips and Tricks for BSG PBF

Standard Things to remember/know:

d10-1All players must have their own copies of the game (this is an FFG requirement).

d10-2Follow PBF conventions. Bold your actions! I will not process anything until bolded. Use italics for in-character talk, and use images for flavor and fun. Find lots of them here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/item/1834905#item1834905. Use the image banners so we know who you are. If you're on a mobile device and don't want to look up your bannerID, please put your character name at the top of your post.

d10-3Don't communicate with other players outside the thread. Any private communication should be between me and particular players. If you have a question that you don’t want to ask publically, ask me, that's what I'm here for!

d10-4Subscribe to the thread! And if you don't visit often, turn on the option to forward your GeekMail to your email. I expect that you will act within 24 hours of being prompted.

d10-5Use Conditional Orders (COs) and the game will run nice and smooth. The game is much more enjoyable when it’s moving along and not getting stalled for days.

d10-6I like to make my board images after the current player has received their cards, so everyone knows how many cards are out there. So if you have a variable draw, please send in your COs for those as soon as you can.

d10-7I will assume that each player has the following standing COs. Send me a GM when you'd like to act otherwise.

* Pass on declare emergency
* Pass on strategic planning for shots against raiders, scouts if there's more than one raptor remaining and shots by cylon ships
* Pass on all character abilities
* Pass on evasive maneuvers for unmanned vipers that aren't protecting a civilian ship
* If everybody else has responded to an interrupt and you haven't, and you don't have the cards in question, I will pretend you sent me a pass CO. This will not divulge hand information since I will also pass those who sent me a pass CO at the same time.
* If there are multiple conflicting CO interrupts, and the players have not worked out whose to play, I will play the lowest-valued interrupt. If it's still tied, I will play the interrupt for the player whose turn is coming up sooner.

d10-8Respect secrecy rules. Some often overlooked secrecy violations include:

* Saying "medium" if you've played one card
* Talking about scouted cards (top or buried) beyond "good" or "bad"
* Identifying which cards/colours you played into a skillcheck
* Volunteering the contents of your hand if it's not directly relevant to the current discussion

I am a HuMod (  Battlestar Galactica - Not a Cylon ) and make mistakes or miss things, so please tell me if you think anything is wrong! It probably is.

Are we going to pick characters in a random order?

I don't quite understand this secrecy rule "Volunteering the contents of your hand if it's not directly relevant to the current discussion"

Welcome Scott! You'll be in, if we don't hear from brynnfr on time.

Once we have the final crew, then I will roll for everyone and get the player order.

That secrecy rule is related to this secrecy section from the official FAQ:
Quote:
Skill Card Abilities
If a player is hoping that another player has a specific Skill
Card ability, he may ask other players.

For example, if a player is thinking of using the “FTL Control”
location during his Action step, he may ask if any players have
a “Strategic Planning” Skill Card.

Players may admit to having a requested card, but are not
required to.

This information should not be abused (for example, a player
should not just list off all card abilities in his hand).


So if someone asks if you have a card, you can reply to that, but you can't just go around saying what cards you have. Does that make sense?

It does make sense for that example. And you are of course allowed to lie.
