So, tempting as it was to call the game "Sadness of the Moon" or something like that, I wiki'd Tears of the Sun for ideas. Turns out that one of the actors that was cast in it died, and so this game is named for the unfortunate Kevin Smith's last movie.

We're supposed to have...

schmloof
MachV
markino
oriecat
Eunomiac
Valen200

Rules here, with D'Anna changed as per Eunomiac's suggestion. Make sure you tip Mark's post in 45a if you'd like to join the betting.

This game will use F5, but no PGs.

This is the Billy we are using:

(Political Leader)
3 Politics
2 Leadership
Setup: Press Room

Quote:
Efficient Presidential Aide: Movement: Look at the top two cards of the Quorum deck. Add one of them to the Quorum hand and put the other card on the bottom of the Quorum deck. Then, if you are not the President, draw a skill card of your choice.
Disastrous Intervention: Once per game, if another character would be sent to "Sickbay", you may discard down to 3 skill cards and send yourself to "Sickbay" to execute that character instead.
No Combat Experience: Subtract 1 from all your die rolls made as a direct result of activating a location.

schmloof 1d1000 = (397) = 397
MachV 1d1000 = (801) = 801
markino 1d1000 = (492) = 492
oriecat 1d1000 = (59) = 59
Eunomiac 1d1000 = (908) = 908
Valen200 1d1000 = (443) = 443

Character selection is open. If you want to run with five politicians, it's your funeral.

d10-1 Eunomiac
d10-2 MachV
d10-3 markino
d10-4 Valen200
d10-5 schmloof

Abbreviated version of my opening post... we're all vets here, so skimming most of it.

Standard Things to remember/know:

d10-1Follow PBF conventions. Bold your actions! I will not process anything until bolded. Use italics for in-character talk, and use images for flavor and fun. Find lots of them here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/item/1834905#item1834905. Use the image banners so we know who you are. If you're on a mobile device and don't want to look up your bannerID, please put your character name at the top of your post.

d10-2This game will use Complex Destiny (I don't remember if that's in Mark's post, silly me) Nope.

d10-3Subscribe to the thread!

d10-4I'm trying something a bit unconventional (thanks to Vollick1979 on the Variant boards for this). Public COs will be accepted - this includes "TANK" COs in the token - however, it will be possible to override your public CO with a private one GMed to me. For example, you can bold a helpful action to perform if XO'd, but GM me "Airlock Roslin and then shoot Adama in the face with my reveal", which is what you will actually do. I feel this will both help game speed and effectively simulate face-to-face play, where you can verbally commit to doing something and then do something completely opposite.

d10-5I like to make my board images after the current player has received their cards, so everyone knows how many cards are out there. So if you have a variable draw, please send in your COs for those as soon as you can.

d10-6I will assume that each player has the following standing COs. Send me a GM when you'd like to act otherwise.

* Pass on declare emergency
* Pass on strategic planning for shots against raiders, scouts if there's more than one raptor remaining and shots by cylon ships
* Pass on calculations
* Pass on all character abilities
* Pass on evasive maneuvers for unmanned vipers that aren't protecting a civilian ship
* Pass on sabotage
* If everybody else has responded to an interrupt and you haven't, and you don't have the cards in question, I will pretend you sent me a pass CO. This will not divulge hand information since I will also pass those who sent me a pass CO at the same time.
* If there are multiple conflicting CO interrupts, and the players have not worked out whose to play, I will play the lowest-valued interrupt. If it's still tied, I will play the interrupt for the player whose turn is coming up sooner.

d10-7Respect 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

d10-8Don't quote anything from more than two pages back in the thread. Say what you think happened in your own words.

I am a HuMod (  Battlestar Galactica - Not a Cylon ) and make mistakes or miss things, so please tell me if you think anything is wrong! It probably is.

No Complex Destiny, and yes, to Kobol. Open selection is fine.

Why not? The spreadsheet even has a specific note: "Treacherous Destiny: If combined with Complex Destiny, it will instead be rebuilt when it reaches either 5 or 6 cards."

I'm using both in mine I suppose I'll be the guinea pig (which don't taste that good, FYI.)

It's called cuy, and they leave the head on so you know you're not eating a rat.

I like underused pilots. I'm going to go with Anders. Starting draw will be CO-ed shortly.

Edit: I also would like a chance to see scanned in action, since mark couldn't do it during our last VASSAL game...

Time to do my best to break my own character... now someone be Admiral so I can be Razor twice as much!

Also, just confirming that FFs are in but PGs are not? Because that's totally the way to go. Especially with D'Anna.

It probably won't affect me since Anders is so far down that I don't expect to be CAG, but... where do the new characters slot in on the succession list?

What's this, the moderator spreadsheet is broken?

Send it over, I'll take a look at it. I'm a whiz with computers. Really.

You can trust me.

Something I forgot: the Human Fleet location now reads:
Choose two: and the rest of it is unchanged. This only affects the Cylon Leader, who can now decide to draw two cards or scout before infiltrating Galactica.
