This is the 146th Play-By-Forum Battlestar Galactica game. It will follow the format established by ColtsFan76. It is a 5-player, European timezone, Pegasus Game. Goal is Kobol, and Cylon Leaders are not welcome.

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

The players are:
Asahi
Hertzog
DTHz
krisztinka
Squee


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):

1) SUBSCRIBE TO THIS THREAD. And please, login at least once a day, preferably more.

2) All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

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 146" and your character name.

4) To speed up the game, please use Conditional Orders (i.e., geekmail me what you will do if certain circumstances arise). CO's are particularly useful for interrupts, such as Evasive Maneuvers. I will not wait for rare occurrences (e.g., a player using a Strategic Planning on a basestar attack or a viper attacking a raider, or a player using his OPG) unless I have received a CO to that end, or if I feel that discussions in the thread warrant it.

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 in geekmail.
Please do not post any spoilers for the television series in the thread.

6) There is no need to change your avatar to match your character. However, I would like you to 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 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.

My thanks to DaveD, of whom I copied about half the text of this post. And for being my first BSG PBF mod. Also, my thanks to Orphius, whose spreadsheets I am using to mod this game.

Re: BSG 146 - Combat Alfalfa

The name of this game is still up in the air. I couldn't think of anything suitable, so "Combat Alfalfa" is a placeholder.

As for those that accept my invitation, please answer the following questions:
- Do you prefer to travel to Kobol or New Caprica?
- Do you prefer a game with or without Cylon Leader?
- Do you have a good suggestion for the game's name?

Re: BSG 146 - Combat Alfalfa
Nugget reporting for duty, sir!

If we're playing just 5 players, I prefer standard 2 Cylons / 3 Humans. But if someone REALLY wants to play a Cylon Leader, I'm fine with that.

I'd prefer Kobol.

EDIT: FYI, as this is not using the Cylon Fleet option, I will probably not play a pilot.

EDIT2: Game name... how about "BSG 146 - This Time Its Personnel"?

Re: BSG 146 - Combat Alfalfa
You mean "personal" or is that a play on words? I don't understand completely...

Two out of two for Kobol, two out of two for no Cylon Leader. One more and it is settled.

Re: BSG 146 - Combat Alfalfa
No, it's a play on words

Substituting Personnel (as in the military persons of the Galactica) for Personal. Thought it was fitting for BSG where its all about the people... just an idea!

OK, so we go to Kobol and we won't take a Cylon Leader with us.

Re: BSG 146 - Combat Alfalfa

Hertzog accepted as well. So we are just one player short of a full crew.

Re: BSG 146 - The Beagle

I changed the name of the game from "Combat Alfalfa" to "The Beagle".

EDIT: I changed it again. Who knows a better one?

Citron accepted a position in BSG 145, where he was alternate. So he's out.

Is that a hobby of you?

It's usually not a big problem to find a military or chemical interpretation of a number, but I was hoping for something with a bit more spark.

I have randomized player order, and we ended up with the following sequence:

Squee
Hertzog
Asahi
DTHz
krisztinka

Time to pick your characters! Once you have selected whom to play, I will address you by your character name.

Squee, you are up first. You can select any of the characters from the base game or Pegasus, except for Cylon Leaders.

Welcome, mrs. Tigh.

DTHz, your turn. You can pick any character that has not been picked yet, and that isn't a Cylon Leader.

Apologies for the delay (iPhone and this forum don't really get on) so had to wait to come online.

If Aashi has no objection, I will choose Gaius Baltar.

iPhone works, but it is rather slow. However, I will sometimes use it for updates.

Anyway,


has joined the crew and will be President.

krisztinka left a CO that she will play


That completes the crew. Helo will be admiral.

I will send out loyalties soon, and then I need everybody's opening hand (except Helo's, because he gets a full hand).
