This will be a 7 person Scepter of Kyros. 7 heroes to fill 8 towns with giants. There will be some peculiar house rules, please review (below) before signing up.

No experience with Kyros is necessary, but some experience with RB PBF is recommended.

Post to this thread (and subscribe) if you want to join!

2. Areinu
3. Marlowespade
4. MikeS8i2
5. Montag451
6. GilgaTex
7. !!!Lorien4!!!

Game starts: When we have exactly 7 players, however long that takes.
Players: 7.
Pace: Normal. At least one turn per day, more is better. Post to this thread if you'll be unavailable for longer than a day.
Market Decks: Base + all small box expansions. If you draw a banner, discard and draw another item.
Player Decks/Draw: All. Draw 3 and choose one. If you hate them, discard those and draw 2; you must choose from those 2. Trenloe and Hugo are banned; draw a replacement.
Challenge variants: Scepter of Kyros
House Rules: Standard, plus:
- no Hugo and Trenloe, draw replacement
- no banners, draw replacement
- as this is a 7 player game, first 2 level ups on 2 exp pts; 3 exp pts after that.
- when attempting to liberate a town, 2 "bonus" market cards will be drawn. The bonus cards will be treated as regular market cards for the purposes of the fight and reward, but bonus cards (except one that the hero chooses as reward) are discarded at the end of the fight.
- any global that would destroy a town is ignored except for the refresh.
- Charmer Flute - takes 2 fatigue to activate (lasts 1 round).
- Ghost Armor - takes 2 fatigue to activate round 1, +3 fatigue for round 2, +4 fatigue for round 3, etc.
rounds/stamina to spend would be:
1/2
2/5
3/9
4/14
- Vestments of Kellos - you borrow the ally WITH any wounds and fatigue at the time of borrowing, and return WITH the same wounds and fatigue.
Who's the Giant?
- if you are the person to the left, and you want to play the giant, post in this thread before the player to your right's turn (and make yourself available as best you can for when the time comes).
- otherwise, if you are trying to liberate a town, post to this thread, and the first person responding in the game thread automatically plays the giant.

Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.

I'd like to give it a try.
Never got around to playing this one so it'll be all new to me.

We don't have to climb any bean stalks right?

Sure, I'm game. Wasn't a big fan of the end game for PBF, but maybe it won't be so bad. Of course, now the rest of the game will be bad because there's 7 of us laugh

It will be exactly as bad as you remember it, but I greatly enjoyed the ending. Though except for that well, ahem...blush

just want to make sure i got this right: I can use his ability once in every phase, so 3 times per round?

are there any non-disposable shields less than 4? blade and buckler is about all I think of.

Yes you can use it 3 times per round, if you have enough fat to burn.

There might be something else, but I don't remember now.

I checked my card, there's mirror shield from zanaga, 1g, cancels up to 2 wounds, but only in magic.

And there are 2 leather armors, 3g each, cancel up to 1 wound.

There are some weapons for ~3g I think, as well as some artifacts that act like weapons that you'll be able to use without penalty.

Just noticed, I am last again. And this time in a 7-player game yuk

you filled sign-up slot 7, but then when the game starts, the turn order is randomized, and you are 6. At this point, all you care about is that you are #6 in the game.

House rule it? There are plenty of greens near other towns that it really shouldn't matter, unless you pick a weird one like Frostgate, but for others like Areinu who pretty much always goes for yellow first turn it'd be fine anyway. I never liked needing to start in the same town every game either.

Yeah I house ruled chosen-start-place in the 9 player game and it turned out pretty well.

It's one of the house rules I use, and then to balance out the markets, I use the 2 blind draws for each market. Then every town has something, but no one knows what until they take a market step in that town. Keeps balance and adds some exploration.

But maybe just the normal market setup +1 in Tamalir might work as well.
