This is the 153th Play-By-Forum Battlestar Galactica game. It will follow the format established by ColtsFan76. It is a 6-player, European timezone, Base Game.

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

The players are:
oliverst
Mr T 1977
Timmytoby
Emmowbee
krisztinka
Brichs


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 153" 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. I will not ask for Strategic Plannings on scouting rolls as long as there are still at least two raptors available. Note that I prefer not to get "public CO's" until all Cylons are known.

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.

My previous moderated games are:
BSG 101 - Mockingbird
BSG 123 - Blue Dragon
BSG 146 - Wake Up and Smell the Tylium

The name of this game is derived from 15 March, "The Ides of March," on which Julius Caesar experienced the betrayal of his closest and most trusted confidants. I hope that that is an omen for this game!

Mr T 1977 has also responded positively!

The crew is complete unless we are willing to take a sixth player on board. Any opinions on that? Personally I like the 5-player game the best, but maybe you feel differently.

I don't have a strong preference either way. Whatever works for the majority will be fine for me.

Above you see my moderator banner, which I created for my first modding outing ("Room 101"). I will use it to head most of my posts.

We start by rolling for player order, highest roll gets to select first, etc.

oliverst 1d100 = (12) = 12
Mr T 1977 1d100 = (83) = 83
Emmowbee 1d100 = (15) = 15
Timmytoby 1d100 = (80) = 80
krisztinka 1d100 = (95) = 95

Hi, this is Maik.

I'd prefer a 6-player Sympathizer version as it is rarely played and has a certain point of tension. If not Sympathizer, better 5 than 6, I feel.

Thank you for the invite. Nice to see Oliver again as well.

Kind regards to everyone.

Mr T 1977
Timmytoby

krisztinka, who will you be?

EDIT: Brichs agreed to be sixth player, so I added him to the end.

I like 5 player games, but I also know it sucks to be the first below the line. I will not object if you think we should include one more player.

Well, one of the two reserves indicated that he wanted a Non-Sympathizer game, so I guess he is out anyway. I personally think 5-player is best, but, as Maik said, the Sympathizer mechanism has an interesting side too, and it is not played much anymore. So I am good with both options.

We'll pick the characters and then start the game. By that time we should have decided if a sixth player joins.

You can give CO's for your character selection if you want. But it is already late, so I estimate that character selection will mainly be done tomorrow.

Some familiar faces in this game.
Nice to see you again Krisztina and Maik, and of course it is nice to play one more game with Pieter as moderator.
Pieter, in your first game I was third player, in your second game I was fourth player and now I am fifth player.
Your spreadsheet hates me or what?

This time it was the geekroll system, Oliver. But yeah, I first let the spreadsheet roll by accident, and you ended up last there too...

Brichs notified me that he was interested in joining as sixth player, and since I got no objections to that (and actually one of you preferring a 6-player game), he is in. And now the game is really filled up.

Oh dear, Apollo and Helo next to each other... I always get those two dudes mixed up...

Anyway, Emmowbee, you can pick any of the remaining characters.
