This is the 346th Play-By-Forum Battlestar Galactica game. It will follow the format established by ColtsFan76. It is a 5-player game to Kobol and will use the Base Game and Exodus Expansion, specifically the Cylon Fleet and Conflicted Loyalties. Not included are components from the Pegasus Expansion and the Ionian Nebula option.

This game is by invite only. The waiting list is being maintained at the BSG PBF Wiki.

Players:

d10-1 awp832 as

d10-2 ssin as

d10-3 bearking as

d10-4 Andrehvg as

d10-5 manutd03 as


The rules of the game are pretty much as in all the other threads. If this is your first BSG PBF game, please read through at least one of the previous games to get a feeling for how it is done.

Some particular notes for those taking part (you can find more notes and tips on nbergom's geeklist Tips and Tricks of BSG PBF):

Rules

d10-1 In order to participate, you must own a copy of game.

d10-2 You are expected to subscribe to this thread and check it at least twice daily.

I would very much like for this to be a fast-paced game, so please be aware that after 12 hours I will start sending out reminders.
Should you be away for an extended time due to RL let us know in advance.

d10-3 Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread. Please start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 336" and your character name.

d10-4 Please, make clear in each post who your character is by posting a banner at the top of your post. Great banners created by DukeOfEarl are available here (use the "medium" option to display them). If you find using a banner is too much of a hassle (or you are on your phone), at least list your character name (preferably in bold) at the top of your post.
For flavor, a useful selection of character pictures is hosted on this geeklist by GerryRailBaron, though by all means provide your own if you wish. Easy, quick links to the items on Gerry's geeklist are provided here.

d10-5 Please use the following posting conventions:
- Normal text for discussions.
- Italics for flavor texts.
- Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread or I receive them by geekmail.

d10-6 Please follow the 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

Conditional Orders

Please use COs extensively. They should all be sent by Geekmail and be clearly marked with "CO".
Please refrain from posting public COs.
I will assume the following COs are in place from the beginning. Should you wish to cancel them please let me know.

Pass on all interrupts I don't have in my hand.
Pass on Declare Emergency
Pass on Strategic Planning
* on Launch Scout unless there is only one raptor remaining.
* on attacks by vipers or attacks by cylon ships.
Pass on Evasive Maneuvers unless it is the last ship protecting a civilian or a manned Viper.

Generally speaking I assume you will pass on everything that has not been clarified in a CO unless someone specifically asks me to wait in the thread.

Characters with special interrupts (like Starbuck) should use extensive CO's.

Generally feel free to send me the most convoluted and complicated COs you can imagine, as long as it keeps the game moving

Alrighty, I'm in. I may have to review those Conflicted Loyalties rules, though.

YES! Oh, I've been waiting for another invite to come my way. I'd love to play.

Count me in!

Edit: And it's a perfect sync with my expansion/game options preferences. It's my lucky day today!

We should be complete shortly, so I went ahead and randomized the turn order:

d10-1 awp832
d10-2 ssin
d10-3 bearking
d10-4
d10-5 manutd03

awp832 may choose his character first

(Please remember: Base Game and Exodus only)

I pick Sharon Valerii.

She's one of my favorite characters from the show, I wanted to play a pilot, and she's got a rockin' skill set (...what did you think I was going to say?).

ssin, I would appreciate it if you did not pick Roslin. Ultimately your choice obviously, but I've had it happen a lot where the next person after Sharon picks Roslin, and it's sorta annoying for Sharon's special ability.

As far as picking the rest of the team goes: I find 2 pilots to be absolutely necessary, especially when I'll be briefly out of the action at 4 distance. Choose wisely!

I'm still inviting more people in regular intervals. Sadly I haven't heard back from the last two.

Going to send bearking a reminder

I tend to agree that you need two pilots with the Cylon Fleet board. And since I've never played as Anders, here we go!



Alrighty, I'm ready to go. Well, give me 5 minutes....


I'll draw a green, purple, and red.

Also, President Tory and Admiral Gaeta? What a long, strange trip this is about to be.

Great, so I'm in charge of all the fixing team for you guys. Just great. I never really asked for this, you know? Where's Chief? Ugh.
My blood's boiling and I have a gun and Boomer's a bitch - guess where this is going??




Oh, sweet pre-cylon-nukes days...

I'll draw 1 Politics, 1 Leadership, 1 Tactics.

Boomer, Tori, Gaeta, Cally, Anders.
This definitely is a weird (and mostly unimportant) crew

Move: Discard 0 Trust Instincts to move to Press Room
Action: Draw 2 Politics


We need all the skill cards we can get right now and I have sort of a weak hand. I know you probably all want me out there cylon fighting, but if XO'd I can gather some more cards and/or give away my title if need be. It also might be worth it to move the civilians to sector 5 at some point with comms for easier evac. In the long run, I think this move will be strong, and I don't mind losing a 0 card.

After my crisis step I'll be using Recon to look at the top crisis card.
