Cavil is about to strike back, with all his might and fury.



This will be a Brutality game, 6p, Pegasus + Exodus, journey to Kobol with Final 5, CL and modified personal goals.

Characters:
- Daybreak characters are allowed (using only the character that don't rely on some unknown daybreak specific mechanic.
- I won't allow the new Brutality characters and brutality cavil has been tweaked as well.

Changes:

1) Cavil:
- The drawback of the brutality version of Cavil has been altered to:
"When a player reveals a "You are a Cylon" Loyalty Card, you must discard a number of Skill Cards that are equal or more in cumulative strength to match the strength of the cards discarded by the player who revealed the loyalty card."

Yeah, long text but you get the picture. Instead of losing his whole hand, he still has the chance to keep some of it. If he doesnt have enough card strength, he'll just discard his whole hand (including 0 card strength cards).

This tweak is meant to compensate for the weaker OPG he has gotten in Brutality, but still having one of the most harsh drawbacks of all characters in the game. Sad part is that he could lose his whole hand twice during a game.

2) Altered personal goals

The personal goal cards have been changed so that it encourages an unrevealed cylon player to also try to complete the text on a personal goal card. If a cylon player holding a PG card would reveal, he has to immediately reveal the PG card and then the humans gain the resource listed on the card. On an execution, the card is revealed, but its discarded without effect, this counts for both humans and cylons.
Holding on to a PG until the end of the game as a cylon will increase the resource type listed on the card.

There will be a seperate deck of cards, all the PGs cards are in the game and blank cards are added to the deck using a 50/50 ratio. Then at the start of the game, people will draw 1 card from that deck. This is completely seperate from the normal loyalty card mechanism. Under no circumstances can a personal goal be revealed (such as using Baltar's cylon detector, its a seperate card type now). The 6 distance loyalty draw part of the text is also ignored. CLs don't draw a PG card.

So its possible that a cylon player starts out with a personal goal card now and the knife cuts both ways when it comes to not fulfilling the goals.

Thats it !

You may still propose tweaks to existing characters (brutality characters + new Daybreak), or use the vanilla version of the characters.

I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this thread. You must not have much faith in the poor v76 humans. D':

That game is about to end either way. Either humans or cylons will win.

And it takes a few days to get players and things set up, so yeah, preparation for the new when you're on the downslope.

I'd be happy to join! Two things, however:

1. I'm in three games already (although they are all going to end pretty soon – especially one of them cool).
2. I have some trips scheduled for the summer (most notably, July 8-15 and 18-23). I'll be checking the Internet about once a day during these trips.

If these two points don't collide with anything, then I'm game. But if they do (especially if there is a new player waiting for their chance to play), I'll have no vengeance; I swear I'll forget this.

I was going to ask to join because v69 and v74b are at most a round from the end and of course v76 is probably ending today but now we're slowly turning this into a reunion and I don't wanna do that if Grid doesn't want to D:

All this has happened before!

I'll move the edit from the first post to this one so that Gridash can see it.

If a Cylon player never reveals (either as an Action or because of an execution), his/her Personal Goal still triggers at the end of the game, increasing the given resource by 1, right?

I usually like the spreadsheet to be at least a little mean

I should have known v76 would be evil. First of all there was the name, and then it was also similar to v67: the second most evil game I've ever played. Sorry mindy, you've been out-eviled.

It's ok. I've still got an evil reputation from V25 (ask Vorpalgens!), so I can live with that.
