I'm still riding the high from the Kickstarter campaign, so I thought I'd send a call out to see if anyone else might be interested in another PBF game. I can mod or play, although I'm not very HTML savvy so the modding would be pretty basic. I live near Chicago and would do most of the posting in the evening. Any takers?

Re: Wanna fight?
Yeah, I want too. I'm so stoked about this system! I can make moves whenenver in general. I'm home during the day. Which characters are you thinking of? I don't have a preference thought I haven't played them all (the ones from War).

Re: Wanna fight?
We can use any of the characters from WoI or the demo set of DoI, although the original characters will only have one finisher to choose from. Now all we need is a third to either mod or play. I'd like to play with the revised burst if that cool. I've been using it pretty much since it was revealed.

Re: Wanna fight?
Agreed playing with the revised Burst. I've been using the revised one too.

Re: Wanna fight?
I'm happy to mod, if you're okay with me (a) being a first-time mod, and (b) being in the middle of playing a PBF game of Devastation. (I'm in the Eastern US time zone and generally check BGG several times per day.)

Re: Wanna fight?
Okay, it's Vanaah (sputang) vs. Rukyuk (Bolga).

PM me your starting discards, please. I don't believe either character has any other pre-duel choices to make, correct?

Also, since this just caused a mixup on my other PBF game: "Discard 1" are the cards you won't get back for two beats. "Discard 2" is the pair you'll have available after one beat.

Bolga asked if we were using the special actions. I'd been assuming yes! Any objection?

I was also assuming we'd use the formal ante rules (active player from the previous beat has to decide about ante first). But given the matchup, that could lead to a lot of extraneous back-and-forth. Bolga, are you okay with always sending your ante with your attack pair, and you can change your mind about it if Vanaah ever antes Divine Rush without waiting to see what you do?

THE BATTLE BEGINS...

Vanaah vs. Rukyuk! Now, we're all heroes here, so I want a nice clean fight. Shake hands and come out swinging and/or firing!

OVOOORO

Vanaah:
Discard 1: Paladin Dash
Discard 2: Reaping Grasp

Rukyuk:

Coin flip for who antes first in beat 1 -- "1" means Vanaah, "2" means Rukyuk: 1d2 = (1) = 1

PM me your first attack pairs (and ante choice, if applicable).

You've both sent me moves. Vanaah went first for ante and anted the Divine Rush token. Bolga, does that change the ante choice you sent me?

[Glorious: Advanced 1 space. Drive: Advanced 2 spaces. Attack misses at range 2.]

[Attack hit for 2 damage! Grasp: Moved Vanaah one space back. Point Blank: Pushed Vanaah 2 spaces.]

OVOOOOR

REACTIVE PLAYER (Vanaah)

Not easily deterred, Vanaah continues to rush in. Her massive scythe almost gives her the reach to strike back... but not quite.

Thank you Herp derp for the the GG offer.

I'm going to push Vanaah 1 space with Grasp and 2 spaces with Point Blank. Vanaah thus ends back to her starting spot, at range 5 from me. Kabang!!

Yes it is. It doesn't say "up to 1 space".

Oh, nice use of Dash. You can close the distance and end up inside his minimum range.

Updated. A few more movement choices to make, but no damage this round (unless I'm missing something very clever).
