BSG 440 – Arrest any suspicious person

Welcome to the 440th Play-by-forum Battlestar Galactica game titled Arrest any suspicious person

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

This will be a five player base game to Kobol. No expansions will be used.

Thanks to ColtsFan76 who kicked things off way-back-when and to those who have created and maintain the tools I will be using to mod this game. Special thanks to my previous moderators who with their skill have encouraged me to try.

Rules

d10-1 In order to participate, you must own a copy of game. This is a requirement by FFG.

d10-2 Use normal text for any discussions. Please Bold any moves, actions, and decisions you are going to take. I will process nothing unless it is bolded. Use Italics for in-character/flavor talk. In-character talk is heavily encouraged and makes the game much more entertaining.

d10-3 Private communication will be done via geekmail between me and other individuals. All other communication should be public in the thread. There should be no private messaging between players. If you have a question, go ahead and send me a geekmail. Messages to me should have a subject line of BSG 440 (Character Name).

d10-4 As this is a PBF, all information is recorded. In the spirit of the game, I will request that no one look back more than one player turn if you need to refresh your memory. Please do not copy and paste skill check results.

d10-5 Use the banners for your character when posting. Banners and any images you wish to use are located here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/item/1834905#item1834905. Many thanks to Gerryrailbaron.

d10-6 Please subscribe to this thread, and try to check in at least once a day. The subscribe button is located near the top of the page. If you are going to be absent for an extended period, please post in the thread or let me know so I can react accordingly.

d10-7 The use of conditional orders (CO) is heavily encouraged as it speeds the game up. If you wish to send me a CO, please start your subject line with BSG 440 (Character Name). Public CO's are not allowed. In addition, I will assume the following standing CO's from all players at the beginning of the game:

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.

You have a right to change any of these CO's if you wish, but you'll need to let me know via geekmail.

d10-8 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/colors you played into a skill check
* Volunteering the contents of your hand if it's not directly relevant to the current discussion

That all being said, I am still human and will make mistakes and this will be my first Moderator game. Please be forgiving, as I will try to correct them as soon as I see them. Don’t hesitate to ask me if you have any question and please tell me if you notice any error.

I am going to roll for character selection order and so you can start choosing or at least start thinking about it.
So it will be:

CptnFalafel 1d100 = (55) = 55
Bexarath 1d100 = (8) = 8
Tuathail 1d100 = (72) = 72
TheNameWasTaken 1d100 = (75) = 75
Player 51d100 = (25) = 25

TheNameWasTaken
Tuathail
CptnFalafel
gaylord500
Bexarath


You can send me a CO for your character selection, CO for the game and your starting 3 cards draw (except TheNameWasTaken) if you want.

Since order probably won't matter, 2 blue, 1 green for the Chief?

Cards sent.

Just a few things to remember:
A) please use bold for your actions, until something is bolded isn't done

B) remember to move first then act; otherwise you will lose your move; I suggest you to use the formula
Move: ---
Action: ---
even if you are not moving, so it won't forget

C) please use the colors of the cards when you post or geekmail me, it makes it easier for everybody the formula to change color is:
[color=name of the color]text[/color]

Turn 1.1 - President Baltar

Mr. President draws 2 Politics 1 Leadership and 1 Engeniering

Caprica and the other eleven colonies have been surprised attacked by Cylon ships from beyond known space. The remnants of humanity are but what could fit in a dozen ships and the last military vessel, Galactica. What is worse, is that the machines can now take on the appearance of humans. Gathering what supplies they have, this ragtag fleet will try to make it to the mythical planet of Kobol, with hopes that it will point the direction towards earth. Settling in for what would be a long trip, most of the command crew were surprised when Lt. Gaeta shouted -



"Dradis Contact! Multiple signals; none broadcasting colonial FOF frequencies! I think the Cylons found us!"



Please post your move and action when ready.

What are peoples thoughts on this?
Given Baltar's drawback, I don't think there's any point in going for the partial pass, we should either aim for the pass or tank it. I can help a bit if we want to try passing it.

I wonder what Zarek has to say about this. They're his people, aren't they?

I am doubtful about passing this one.

*On the phone* "Yes, it's going as planned. With any luck our 'dear' President will have to give up his throne. The prisoners? Collateral damage. Regrettable, but necessary."

My contribution to this check, even with my whole hand, would be fairly low. We'd need to basically empty our resources to guarantee a pass on this without an IC, and I don't really see it as worth it. If nothing else, we can at least mitigate the risk of a cylon president somewhat.

I vote TANK.
