I have checked a few PBFs and decided to give myself a try as moderator while I am waiting my turn as player.

As the rules are stolen, better say borrowed, from the user that took them from the user... I shall take the rules from the moderator of the last game

, so, thanks to him and all the mods before him.

This is going to be a 6-player game without Ravens. Reason is simple - nobody can forbid sending e-mails or GM between players, but reading diplomacy messages is FUN.

There will be no Tides of Battle cards. The Houses will be assigned randomly unless somebody has preferences and everybody agree on that.


GUIDELINES

I. The Basics
1. Normal text for discussions.
2. Politics and Roleplaying are highly encouraged. ITALICIZE all of them.
3. Bold for in-game moves and actions.
4. If possible, don't edit game related stuff (actions, politics), but if you must, highlight that you edited that particular text by leaving the old text striked through. This is to clear up confusion. Someone may read your original post only once, then when you change it, he may not notice what's wrong later.
5. To make things easier, we will address each other by our House names. You may address me as moderator or just as mod.
6. All players will use banners when posting. Place them at the beginning of every post. To make them appear, type in [imageid=XXXXXXXmedium] where XXXXXXX are the following numbers:

--- 1152906 - Stark

--- 1152903 - Greyjoy

--- 1152904 - Lannister

--- 1152902 - Baratheon

--- 1152907 - Tyrell

--- 1152905 - Martell


And i will use this banner for moderatorial text:


For this banners we should give credits for

who also deserved our thanks. I plan to use standard (non-political) map simply because I checked it and it is quite easy to edit. You can see both maps in the thread Updated PBF map (GIMP) for AGoT 2nd edition.
3. Tides of Battle will not be used.
4. Ravens to other players (PMs) are not forbidden, but diplomacy is appreciated in this thread. Lying is allowed so lie as much as you want! Be creative!
5. Westeros Cards and Wildings Cards will be rolled right here.
6. Houses for the players also will be rolled. But you can exchange your House with another player if both of you are agree.
7. References:
2nd Edition Rulebook (PDF)
Official FAQ
Official Responses from FFG

III. How We Play
1. Let us all work together and make this game move at a fast pace. Please, check in at least once a day. I'll try to be a good example for you and update our map daily.
2. If you can post in time, you should notify us here or geekmail me.
3. Geekmail me your orders, bids, and house cards. All Geekmails should have a subject as prescribed below. Also, be sure to send an order to ALL your territories WITH units. Don't forget to put a * next to your star orders.
--- Orders:
------ AGoT PBF #58 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - Orders
--- Bid:
------ AGoT PBF #58 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [IT/F/KC/W] Bid: [Bid Amount]
--- House Card:
------ AGoT PBF #58 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - [Card Name]
--- Examples:
------ AGoT PBF #58 - Round 1 - Stark - Orders
------ AGoT PBF #58 - Round 2 - Stark - IT Bid: 5
------ AGoT PBF #58 - Round 2 - Stark - Roose Bolton
4. After sending me your orders/bid via geekmail, go to the thread and post that you have done so. This will do a lot to help the game keep moving along.
5. During Combat Phase, we will use the following steps:
--- a. The attacker calculates and posts both his and the defender's combat strength. This includes BOTH their initial strength (combat strength of participating units), order modifier (+2, +1, +0, or -1), and initial support.
--- b. Both attacker and defender then asks for support from other houses. Those who wish to support any side should declare it by posting a message in the thread. If support has been declared, the supporter recomputes and posts both parties' modified combat strength.
--- c. The attacker Geekmails me his chosen house card and informs everyone by posting that he has already sent his house card to the mod.
--- d. The defender Geekmails me his chosen house card AND posts it in the thread.
--- e. The attacker reveals his house card by posting it in the thread.
--- f. The attacker or defender may now decide if he will use his Valyrian Steel Blade token.
--- g. Anyone may now recompute and post the final combat strength of both parties. Combat resolution follows.
--- Notes:
------ Steps (b & f) are optional and may be skipped.
------ In the interest of speeding things up, the attacker may skip Step b and proceed with Step c. In this case, support from other houses can still be declared as long as the defender has not yet geekmailed me his house card (Step d). All support declared after step d will no longer count.
------ In Step g, anyone may resolve the combat without waiting for the mod.
------ Calculation example for copy and paste, modify it according to the current battle:

[Attacker]
Initial Strength = 3 (1 KN, 1 FM)
Order = -1
Support = 0
Card = Send to mod
Total = 2++

[Defender]
Initial Strength = 1 (1 FM)
Order = +1
Support = 1 (1 SH)
Card = ??
Total = 3++

6. Feel free to take your next action if you feel it won't affect what's currently going on. Alternatively, you can send me the action via Geekmail and I'll process it at the appropriate time. Conditional orders are very much welcome.
7. On changing your mind, I will accept updates/changes to orders/battles until I have an order from each person. If the last person I was waiting for already submitted their order, then no orders can be changed.
8. We will use the official 2nd edition rulebook for all rules. If a question is not answered in the rulebook, we will use Official Responses from FFG. If that still doesn't answer the question, I will make the call.
9. If you see something wrong--either that I did incorrectly or another player--let us know right away! I will do my best to correct any mistakes as fairly as possible.
10. If I make any mistakes, feel free to point them out ASAP. All mistakes I might do are made without intentions to support any of players.

IV. Who Are Playing
1. Invited (I shall mark who accepted, refused or ignored the invitation):
---1. Norrab - first moderator, who isn't playing a game - confirmed

2. Alternates:

So, the players are:
1. Norrab
2. badoomboom
3. StannisTheMannis
4. Vitezslav
5. MonkeyKnifeFight
6. GallantSnow

I shall try to keep the pace, so if you know that you are not able to check the forum, be so kind and let us all know in advance.

I guess this is all about formalities...

As this is the first game for all the players (including myself as mod) I assume that you do not have any preferences regarding houses. If you have, post the message to this thread and if everybody agree, you will play the house of your preference.

I shall wait until tomorrow (Jan. 29) noon, when the houses will be chosen randomly.

Maester zovlah,

Thank you very much for setting this game up and volunteering to Moderate. Really appreciate it. I am modding my first game (#57) and enjoying it so far. The hardest part has been not making any comments that might sway someones opinion.

I will take a random house. I approve any and all requests for houses from the other lords.

Thanks for encouraging words, I shall do my best to make this game interesting and, more important, funny. If I feel tempted to discuss moves and strategies, I shall do it via GM.

Anyway, thanks for the advice. :o))

I shell not address you as 'My lords' yet, because you still have no lands. :o)

To recap: Vitezslav asked for the house Greyjoy
Norrab - ok
GallantSnow - ok
StannisTheMannis - ok
badoomboom - ok
MonkeyKnifeFight - ok

I hope that two the last players will not object. So, tomorrow noon you will become lords and we can start the game officialy.Everybody agrees on the house Greyjoy.

Till then - sharp you swords, pray your Gods, kiss your wifes goodbye...

Honor can not feed empty belies, can it, my lord Greyjoy?

You can take your banner, and fight bravely.

Shagwell the Fool just returned from the Citadel. A few people went missing, students, one maester and one archmaester. But still, he has nice chain around his neck - so, he must be trusted. He brought the message that said - noble houses had new lords. And we must trust sweet Shagwell. The time is really strange. The winter is really upon us.


Norrab 1custom5{"Stark";" Lannister";"Baratheon";"Tyrell";" Martell"} -> ( Stark) -> Stark

badoomboom 1custom4{" Lannister";"Baratheon";"Tyrell";" Martell"} -> ( Lannister) -> Lannister

StannisTheMannis 1custom3{"Baratheon";"Tyrell";" Martell"} -> ( Baratheon) -> Baratheon

GallantSnow 1custom2{"Tyrell";"Martell"} -> ( Tyrell) -> Tyrell

Dear Lords of the Westeros,

take your banners and release your ravens with orders.

Start your diplomacy, strategies, cheating, backstabbing...

Have in mind:
GM me with subject: AGoT PBF #59 - Round [Round #] - [House Name] - Orders
Inform the rest with the post in this thread.
