Base Set and Pegasus Expansion
After forty years passing without a single word from the Cylons, they returned, and all but eradicated the human race. In this time of strife, they must put aside the petty differences that once separated them and focus on one thing — survival.

Humanity's only hope of a future is to find a new home; a place called Earth. The Cylons, however, are in constant and tireless pursuit. They now look, breathe and bleed exactly like humans. Cylons have infiltrated the Fleet, destroyed resources, and threaten to finish the extermination they have begun. The humans have no choice but to run, plagued by the paranoia of an indistinguishable enemy.

Are you a Cylon who will help to erase any memory of the human race? Or will your resilience and determination to survive prove to the Cylons that humanity is worth saving?

In the basic version of the game, players take the roles of prominent figures in the remainder of humanity working toward the goal of reaching Kobol, the first step on the long road toward the legendary planet Earth. However, hidden among their ranks are Cylon infiltrators, who seek to end humanity for once and for all. The Pegasus expansion adds a new scenario following the second leg of humanity’s journey, to the settlement of New Caprica and the subsequent escape after the Cylons discover and occupy the planet. Pegasus joins the fleet to provide support and additional options, and the new role of Cylon Leader is introduced, whose goals may differ from their fellow Cylons. The following rules apply all new situations and rules introduced in the Pegasus Expansion. For rules that apply solely to the base set, look to one of the older games.

Notes and Guidelines for this play-by-post game:
Secrecy is an important part of this game! As such, the following rules must be followed at all times:
  • You may not tell other players the exact value/type of cards that are in your hand, that you plan to put into a Skill Check, or what you had put into a Skill Check after it is resolved. You may still use vague terms to describe the cards you hold/play: “this should help a lot” or “this should help a little” are reasonable; “this should help a medium amount” can be said for multiple cards.
  • If an ability or action allows you to look at the top card of any deck, you are not allowed to tell the other players what that card is or any specific information about it.
  • All communication between players must be made through this thread. No private conversations allowed!
  • All players, whether Human or Cylon, must adhere to these rules; Revealed Cylons may not show their hands to other players or reveal their Super Crisis card until they play it.

All actions should be reported in the thread in bold cyan for them to be recognized. Movement, skill card use, ability use, discards, etc. all apply. On skill checks, the rules state that submissions to the check are made beginning with the player after the active player then continuing in turn order, ending with the active player. However, you can make a submission out of order if you know what you wish to play. It is recommended that you discuss with your fellow players if you are uncertain how much you should contribute. Final submission numbers will be given by the GM at the time of resolution.

There are a number of Skill Cards that can be played under certain conditions. Please refer to the Skill Cards section for the effects of each card. For the purposes of keeping things moving at a good pace, I recommend sending me a PM with guidelines or instructions in advance detailing the circumstances in which you want to use them.

Skill Cards that come before events:
Before die rolls: Strategic Planning
Before skill checks: Investigative Committee, Support the People, At Any Cost, Guts and Initiative, Scientific Research, Jury Rigged
Before combat: Run Interference

Skill Cards that come after events:
After die rolls: Calculations
After skill checks: Declare Emergency
After combat rolls/results: Major Victory, Evasive Maneuvers
After a discard: Sabotage

The Board
game-setup.jpg
Above, the main game board at the beginning of the game, before characters are placed. The fleet has four resources that will deplete over the course of the game: Fuel (starts at 8), Food (starts at 8), Morale (starts at 10), and Population (starts at 12). One Basestar and three Raiders are deployed at the fore of Galactica, two civilian ships at the aft, and one Viper in each of the port-bow and port-quarter areas.
pegasus-board.jpg
Battlestar Pegasus is located on a board separate from Galactica. Pegasus is not located in any specific space and does not have its own space areas. There are four locations on Pegasus that provide new options to the human fleet. Whenever Galactica would be damaged, the current player may choose to damage a location on Pegasus instead. However, there are only four damage tokens in the Pegasus stack, and so if all locations are damaged, Pegasus is destroyed. All players on Pegasus at such a time are moved to Galactica’s Sickbay, and no more use of Pegasus may be made for the remainder of the game.
caprica-board.jpg
New Caprica also has a completely new board used at the end of the eponymous game scenario. This board will only come into play once New Caprica is reached. Details regarding New Caprica are located in the dedicated segment near the end of these rules.

General Game Flow and Victory Conditions
There are two different scenarios that may be played: the original scenario following humanity’s journey to the planet of Kobol, and the expansion scenario following the fleet to New Caprica and the escape from the planet that followed.
  • Human Victory: Kobol scenario: Reach Kobol by making one final jump after accumulating a Destination Score of 8 or more (Every time you jump you will earn a Destination Card with a score between 1 and 3), OR New Caprica scenario: Jump the fleet to New Caprica by accumulating a Destination Score of 7 or more, then subsequently jump the fleet away from New Caprica while maintaining at least one of each resource (Fuel, Food, Morale, Population). (See dedicated rules section for the New Caprica phase of the game.)
  • Cylon Victory: End humanity. This is done by destroying Galactica (damage six locations), dropping one of the fleet's resource stats to 0, or getting a Centurion Boarding Party far enough into Galactica's innards.
  • Cylon Leader/Sympathetic Cylon Victory: Fulfill the conditions stated on their hidden Agenda Card – these include allowing either the cylons or the humans to win the game alongside other requirements.

At the start of the game, each player (with the exception of Cylon Leaders) is given one Loyalty Card (Exception: Gaius Baltar, who receives two) that indicates whether or not a player starts out as a Human or a Cylon player. Players take turns in sequence, encountering crises and jumping the fleet towards the destination of Kobol or New Caprica. When a distance of 4 or greater has been reached, the Sleeper Agent Phase activates: each player, including Revealed Cylons, is dealt one more Loyalty Card (Exception: Sharon Valerii, who receives two) that may change that player's alignment. The total number of Cylons present in the game is fixed and dependent on the number of players in the game.

Instead of a loyalty card, Cylon Leaders start the game with an Agenda card that provides a special win condition. While the Cylon Leader may win with either the humans or the Cylons depending on the drawn Agenda, each Agenda requires an extra condition to be satisfied in order for the Cylon Leader to declare victory. In a 4- or 6-player game, the Cylon Leader draws an Agenda from the Sympathetic Agenda deck, which is more likely, but not necessarily, to be favorable to the humans. In a 5- or 7-player game, the Cylon Leader draws from the Hostile Agenda deck, which is more likely to be unfavorable to the humans.

Sympathetic Cylon Leader Agendas (4- and 6-player games)
  • Convert the Infidels - The humans have won AND All resources are at 3 or lower.
  • Guide Them to Destiny - The humans have won AND Population and morale values are within 2 of each other.
  • Join the Colonials - The humans have won AND you are Infiltrating and not in the “Brig” or “Detention”.
  • Prove their Worth - The humans have won AND at least 5 Raptors/Vipers are damaged or destroyed.
  • Illusion of Hope – The Cylons have won AND 6 or more units of distance have been travelled.
  • Salvage their Equipment – The Cylons have won AND 2 or fewer Galactica locations are damaged.

Hostile Cylon Leader Agendas (5- and 7-player games)
  • Genocide – The Cylons have won AND Both food and population are at 2 or less.
  • Reduce Them to Ruins – The Cylons have won AND 4 or more Galactica and/or Pegasus locations are damaged and Morale is at 3 or lower.
  • Show Their True Nature – The Cylons have won AND Either you are in the “Brig” or “Detention”, or you have been executed at least once.
  • Siege Warfare – The Cylons have won AND Every resource is at half or lower (in the red).
  • Grant Mercy – The humans have won AND Population, morale, or food is 2 or lower.
  • Mutual Annihilation – The humans have won AND You have played a Super Crisis Card.

A Sympathetic Cylon may be introduced to the game at the Sleeper Phase in 4- and 6-player games that do not have a Cylon Leader. Sympathetic Cylons draw an Agenda from the Sympathetic Agenda deck, changing their win condition from the normal Human or Cylon condition to that on their drawn card.

Character Selection
Each player chooses a character in turn order. Selection of Political Leaders, Military Leaders, and Pilots is restricted if there are more of the other types of characters, Support characters may be chosen at any time, and at most one Cylon Leader character may be selected.

The first player draws their full Skill Card Draw to start the first turn, while all other players draw three cards from their normal Skill Card Draw to start the game. Cylon Leaders draw only two cards to start, the size of their normal draw.

Human (and Unrevealed Cylon) Game Turn
  1. Receive Skills Step: The current player draws the number and types of Skill Cards listed on his character sheet.
  2. Movement Step: The current player may move to a different location. If he moves to a different ship (between Galactica, Colonial One, and Pegasus, or from a Viper to any of these ships), he must discard one Skill Card from his hand. Alternatively, the player may use a non-Treachery Skill Card with a Movement Ability.
  3. Action Step: The current player chooses one action to perform. Options include the actions listed on his location, character sheet, and non-Treachery Skill Cards. If piloting in a Viper, you may activate it as an action. Unrevealed Cylons may also reveal a Cylon Loyalty Card in this step.
  4. Crisis Step: The top card of the Crisis deck is drawn and then resolved.
  5. Activate Cylon Ships Step: If any are in play, Cylon ships are activated according to the Crisis Card drawn.
  6. Prepare for Jump Step: If the Crisis Card has the "prepare for jump" icon on it, the fleet token advances one space on the Jump Preparation track. If the token reaches the end of this track, then the fleet jumps automatically.

Revealing as a Cylon
Cylon players may reveal a Loyalty Card indicating their alignment as an action. The following steps are followed after a reveal:
  1. Resolve Loyalty Card Action: If the player is not in the Brig, then the effect on their Loyalty Card takes effect.
  2. Discard: The player's hand is discarded down to 3 Skill Cards.
  3. Lose Titles: If the player was Admiral or President, the title is passed to the human player that is highest in the line of succession.
  4. Receive Super Crisis: The player receives one random Super Crisis card from the ten available.
  5. Hand Off Excess Loyalty Cards: If Galactica has traveled 6 distance or less, all unrevealed Loyalty Cards are passed on to a single human player of the revealing player’s choice.
  6. Join Cylons: The player moves to the Resurrection Ship and their turn ends.

Revealed Cylon Game Turn
Revealed Cylons ignore all abilities and effects that were part of their original character. Cylon players may also choose to ignore effects on Crisis Cards that might affect them unless the Crisis Card specifically targets a Cylon player.
  1. Draw Skills Step: The current player may draw any two Skill Cards of different types.
  2. Movement Step: The current player may move to any of the Cylon Locations or use a Movement ability on an applicable Treachery card.
  3. Action Step: The current player activates his current location and performs the listed action or uses an Action ability on an applicable Treachery Skill Card.
  4. Prepare for Jump Step: In the base game, the Activate Cylon Ships Step and Prepare for Jump Step are always skipped on Cylon players’ turns. With the expansion, the Prepare for Jump Step is not ignored when Crisis cards are played from the Caprica location. The Activate Cylon Ships step continues to be skipped.

Cylon Leader and Sympathetic Cylon Game Turn
Cylon Leaders start out the game in the Cylon locations and are normally treated as Cylon players, but can use the Human Fleet location to move to a Galactica location and infiltrate, acting as a human player in most respects while among the human players. While infiltrating, the Cylon Leader may return to the "Resurrection Ship" location and stop infiltration as an action, discarding down to three skill cards if they performed the action in the "Brig" or "Detention Center". Whether infiltrating or not, Cylon Leaders will be able to use the special abilities listed on their character sheets as well as suffering from the listed disadvantage.

When not infiltrating, Cylon Leaders are considered to be Cylon players and follow the Revealed Cylon Game Turn steps, with the exception that on the Draw Skills Step, the Cylon Leader must take cards from the distribution listed on their character sheet. When infiltrating, Cylon Leaders are considered to be human players and follow the Human Game Turn steps, with the exception that on the Draw Skills Step, the Cylon Leader may draw an extra card from any of the types they normally draw from, in addition to their regular skill card draw. In addition, a Cylon Leader can never be made President or Admiral, and can play up to two skill cards per Skill Check as long as they are not in the "Brig".

Sympathetic Cylons operate almost exactly like a regular Cylon, but may use the Human Fleet location to infiltrate like if they were a Cylon Leader. When not infiltrating, a Sympathetic Cylon draws any two Skill Cards of different types (like a normally revealed Cylon). When infiltrating, a Sympathetic Cylon draws any three Skill Cards of different types. Whether infiltrating or not, Sympathetic Cylons cannot use any character abilities, like regular Cylons.

It should be noted that the Cylon Leader does not start with a Super Crisis, and the Sympathetic Cylon does not obtain a Super Crisis when revealed. The only way for either to obtain one is via the Resurrection Ship Action.

Admiral / President
At the start of the game, the Admiral and President roles are given to the players who are highest in the appropriate lines of succession. Players with these roles have extra powers and responsibilities throughout the game. These roles may pass from player to player depending on actions taken.

Admiral Abilities
When the fleet jumps, you draw 2 Destination Cards and choose 1 to resolve.

You control the nuke tokens. (There are 2 nuke tokens available at the start of the game.) You also give the order to jump from New Caprica when Galactica returns.

Action: Launch 1 nuke at a Basestar (the nuke is removed from the game).

Nukes damage a Basestar twice on a roll of 1-2, automatically destroy a Basestar on a roll of 3-6, and automatically destroy a Basestar and 3 Raiders in the same area on a roll of 7-8.

Action: If Galactica is in orbit around New Caprica, jump the fleet. All human characters left on New Caprica are executed. All civilian ships left on New Caprica are destroyed.

Admiral Succession
  1. Helena Cain
  2. William Adama
  3. Saul Tigh
  4. Helo Agathon
  5. Lee "Apollo" Adama
  6. Anastasia "Dee" Dualla
  7. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
  8. Louanne "Kat" Katraine
  9. Sharon "Boomer" Valerii
  10. Galen Tyrol
  11. Tom Zarek
  12. Ellen Tigh
  13. Gaius Baltar
  14. Laura Roslin

The title of Admiral is lost if the holder is sent to the Brig, and is given to the human player highest in succession that is not in the Brig. If all human players are in the Brig, then the title goes to the player highest in the normal succession.
President Abilities
At the start of the game, draw 1 Quorum Card. You control the hand of Quorum Cards.

Action: Draw a Quorum Card into your hand.

The maximum size of the Quorum Card hand is 10; if at the end of any turn there are more than 10 cards in the Quorum Card hand, the President must discard down to 10 cards. Quorum cards can be played as an action and specialize in increasing resources and dealing with unrevealed Cylons. When you play a Quorum Card while on a New Caprica location, roll a die. If 3 or less, you are sent to "Detention".

President Succession
  1. Laura Roslin
  2. Gaius Baltar
  3. Tom Zarek
  4. Ellen Tigh
  5. Lee "Apollo" Adama
  6. William Adama
  7. Karl "Helo" Agathon
  8. Galen Tyrol
  9. Helena Cain
  10. Anastasia "Dee" Dualla
  11. Sharon "Boomer" Valerii
  12. Saul Tigh
  13. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
  14. Louanne "Kat" Katraine

Note that if the President is in the "Brig," he keeps the President title and all associated abilities.

  • Resurrection Ship - You draw only 1 Skill Card during your Receive Skill Cards step. You may not move to this location with your normal movement. Action: Draw a Super Crisis Card.

Executions
When a character is executed, all Skill Cards and Quorum Cards played on the character are discarded. If the player has a "You Are a Cylon" card, he reveals one and follows the procedures for Revealing as a Cylon above, skipping the Resolve Loyalty Card Action and Receive Super Crisis steps, becoming a Revealed Cylon. If the player is a Cylon Leader, he simply moves to the Resurrection Ship without revealing his Agenda.

If the player has no "You Are a Cylon" cards, he reveals all Loyalty Cards as a human character. Morale is reduced by 1 and the player’s character is removed from the game. If Sharon "Boomer" Valerii is executed before the sleeper phase, her player receives a new Loyalty card. The player may then choose any unselected character outside of the Cylon Leader category. If the player has not yet used a character’s once per game ability thus far, his new character’s once per game ability is available; otherwise it cannot be used. If the player does not have any characters to choose from, then the humans lose the game. If the Admiral or the President is executed, the title passes to the character highest in the line of succession after the new character is chosen.

A number of exceptions to the character procedure may apply. If Karl "Helo" Agathon is selected, his "Stranded" disadvantage applies for the player’s next turn. If Lee "Apollo" Adama is selected, he starts in the "Hangar Deck" location if no vipers are available for launch. If Sharon "Boomer" Valerii is selected before the Sleeper Phase, add one "You Are Not a Cylon" card to the Loyalty deck; if selected after the Sleeper Phase, she starts in the Brig. If Gaius Baltar is selected before the Sleeper Phase, add one "You are Not a Cylon" card to the Loyalty deck and immediately deal a Loyalty card to his player; if selected after the Sleeper Phase, his one-time "Cylon Detector" ability is unavailable, even if his player has not yet used a one-time ability.

Skill Checks
Most Crisis Cards and some Locations resolve with a Skill Check. Skill Checks are a major avenue of subterfuge for Cylon players.

A Skill Check will involve two to four types of Skill Cards, and a number. A Skill Check always includes 2 cards from the Destiny Deck (see below), and then each player may add as many cards as they like in turn (Exception: Players in Brig and Revealed Cylons may only contribute one card to each check; Cylon Leaders may play up to two cards per check if they are infiltrating). All skill cards are submitted without revealing their values, including cards that come from the Destiny Deck. Only after all players have made a submission are cards revealed, without noting which card came from which player. PM the host the specific cards you wish to contribute after declaring the amount of cards in the game thread.

After the skill cards are revealed, you ADD all of the numbers from the correctly colored Skill Cards, and then SUBTRACT all of the numbers from the non-matching Skill Cards. If you meet or beat the Skill Check number, the check is a pass. This usually does nothing but avoid negative results, but can sometimes yield positive results. Some Skill Checks have a number value that allows for a partial pass; in these cases the negative results are lessened to some extent.

The Destiny Deck is composed of two cards from each of the six Skill Card types. Two are drawn in each Skill Check, and the deck is only replenished when it is exhausted (after six Skill Checks).

Before cards are played in a Skill Check, certain cards may be played to increase the chances of a successful pass. There are a number of these cards that are labeled as Reckless Skill Cards, introduced in the Pegasus Expansion. At most one Reckless Skill Card can be played in a single Skill Check - if multiple people wish to play such a card, the current player can choose who plays their card.

While Reckless abilities may make it easier to pass a skill check, it also puts the check at risk of Reckless Skill Check abilities found on certain Treachery cards. These cards contain events that activate if found in the cards submitted to a Reckless Skill Check. If multiple cards with the same name are present, only one copy of the card is followed.

    Skill Cards
    Each player's hand is comprised of Skill Cards drawn from six different types: Politics, Leadership, Tactics, Piloting, Engineering, and Treachery. There are 26 cards of each type, with Skill Check values from 1 to 5, except for Treachery, which ranges from 1 to 3. These cards may also be used outside of Skill Checks, as a regular Action, in lieu of a Movement, or in reaction to specific circumstances. Human players may not use the special text abilities on Treachery cards, while Cylon players can use the special text abilities on only Treachery cards and no others. Cylon Leaders and Sympathetic Cylons can use different cards depending on if they are Infiltrating or not. I encourage you to PM me with circumstances in which you will automatically use your cards, so as to help keep the game moving as quickly as possible. If more than one character would be using the same card at the same time, only the next in action order will make the play. See the Notes and Guidelines sections for some rules on cards of this type.

    Players have a maximum hand limit of 10 Skill Cards (Exception: Galen Tyrol, whose hand limit is 8). If they exceed this limit at the end of any player's turn, they must discard down to this amount. Players may still exceed this amount during any player's turn, including the start of their own turn after drawing Skill Cards.

    Activating Cylon Ships
    Cylon ships are usually activated based on icons found on Crisis Cards. Cylon players may also activate Cylon ships by using the Cylon Fleet location action on their turns. There are four different types of activations:

    Activate Raiders - Each raider on the board takes one action with the following priority:
    1. Attack a Viper - Attack a viper in the same space area; unmanned Vipers are attacked before player-piloted Vipers.
    2. Destroy Civilian Ship - The current player chooses a civilian ship in the Raider’s space area. The ship is destroyed and the listed resources lost.
    3. Move – The Raider moves toward the nearest space area containing a civilian ship, moving clockwise if there are two space areas equidistant from the Raider’s current location.
    4. Attack Galactica - If none of the above actions have been taken, the Raider will remain in its current area and attack Galactica.
    If there are no Raiders on the board to activate, then each Basestar on the board will launch two Raiders. If there are multiple space areas containing Raiders, then the current player may choose the order in which they activate; all raiders in a space area are activated before moving to the next.

    Launch Raiders - Each Basestar in play launches three raiders. If there are not enough raiders, the current player may choose which raiders are launched.

    Activate Heavy Raiders and Centurions - Each Heavy Raider on the board moves toward the closest Viper launch area, or if in a launch area, deposits a Centurion on the first space of the Boarding Party track. If there are no Heavy Raiders on the board, each Basestar in play launches one Heavy Raider. Each Centurion also advances one space on the Boarding Party track; if any has advanced to the end (a total of four activations), then the Cylons win. Centurions activate with Heavy Raiders with the Cylon Fleet location action.

    Activate Cylon Basestars - Each Basestar in play attacks Galactica.

    Combat Table
    • Unit Attacked: Die Roll = Result

    • Raider: 3-8 = Destroyed
    • Heavy Raider: 7-8 = Destroyed
    • Centurion: 7-8 = Destroyed
    • Basestar attacked by Viper: 8 = Damaged
    • Basestar attacked by Galactica: 5-8 = Damaged
    • Basestar attacked by Nuke: 1-2 = Damaged Twice; 3-6 = Destroyed; 7-8 = Destroyed and destroy 3 Raiders in the same area

    • Viper: 5-7 = Damaged; 8 = Destroyed; If a piloted viper is damaged or destroyed, move the pilot to Sickbay.
    • Civilian Ship: Automatically Destroyed (no die roll)
    • Galactica attacked by Raider: 8 = Damaged
    • Galactica attacked by Basestar: 4-8 = Damaged

    Jumping
    jump-track.png
    The ultimate objective in the base set scenario for the humans is to jump the fleet enough distance to make it to Kobol. In the expansion scenario, the first major objective is to jump the fleet to New Caprica. The game starts with the Jump Prep marker on Start. Each Crisis Card drawn has a chance to advance the Jump Prep marker. When the Jump Prep marker reaches the -3 or -1 spots, any character can use the FTL Control location to initiate a jump, but will risk losing 3 or 1 population (on a roll of 6 or less). If the Jump Prep marker advances to the Auto Jump spot, the fleet automatically jumps with no risk of population loss.

    Jumping clears the board of all ships. All Vipers, unmanned or piloted, return to the reserves. Any characters piloting Vipers are moved to the Hangar Deck. While jumping does clear the board of all Cylon ships, any Centurions in a Boarding Party remain on Galactica. After the jump, the Admiral draws 2 cards from the Destination Deck and chooses one, jumping the fleet a certain distance and initiating a special effect, and the Jump Prep marker returns to its starting position.

    New Caprica
    The New Caprica phase of the expansion scenario changes the dynamic greatly, introducing a number of new rules and modifying some standard rules. At a Distance Score of 7 or more, the main Galactica and Pegasus boards are frozen and all players are moved to New Caprica with human players (and infiltrating Cylon Leaders) starting in the "Resistance HQ" location and Cylon players starting in the "Occupation Authority" location. The humans must work to prepare the civilian ships for evacuation while waiting for Galactica’s return; after Galactica arrives, the humans must successfully evacuate as many players and ships as possible to escape New Caprica with at least one of each resource. If the Cylons can reduce any resource to zero, then they will be victorious instead.

    The New Caprica phase uses a new deck of Crisis Cards that implement a couple of extra rules. Abilities that target the normal Crisis Card Deck also apply to the New Caprica Crisis Cards.

    New Caprica Phase I: Before Galactica Arrives
    In the first phase of New Caprica, players may only move among the New Caprica locations, and the Galactica and Pegasus boards are inaccessible. During this phase, any events that would affect the Galactica or Pegasus boards are ignored, such as movement or placement of ships and centurions, or repairs or damage to Galactica and Pegasus locations. Raptors may still be risked as normal. Civilian Ships may be moved from Locked to Prepared with the Shipyard location. They may not be evacuated until Galactica returns.

    The Activate Cylon Ships Step of players’ turns is ignored except for the new icon "Activate Occupation Forces" which may appear next to the normal Activate Cylon Ships command on New Caprica Crisis Cards. Occupation Forces start from the Occupation Authority location and move along a track to the Breeder’s Canyon and Shipyard locations. The "Activate Occupation Forces" icon in the Activate Cylon Ships step moves each Occupation Force one step along the track. If an Occupation Force moves from the Shipyard, the Locked Civilian Ship at the top of the stack is destroyed and the Occupation Force returned to the reserves. If there are no Locked Civilian Ships, then the top Prepared Civilian Ship is destroyed instead; if both stacks are empty, then no Civilian Ships are destroyed. If there are no Occupation Forces on the board when "Activate Occupation Forces" occurs, then one is placed on Occupation Authority.

    Jump Preparation is treated as in the normal game as Galactica prepares to return to New Caprica. When the Auto Jump step of the Jump Track is reached, Galactica arrives and Phase II starts.

    New Caprica Phase II: After Galactica’s Arrival
    caprica-setup.jpg
    When Galactica returns to orbit, one Basestar and four Raiders are deployed to each starboard area and two Vipers deployed to each port area around Galactica. The Activate Cylon Ships step is no longer ignored; "Activate Occupation Forces" continues to be in effect. Humans are now allowed to move between New Caprica, Galactica, and Pegasus for a cost of one skill card; no movement to Colonial One may be performed. Cylons may now move between the Cylon Locations and New Caprica for a cost of one Skill Card.

    Jump Preparation icons are now ignored during the "Prepare for Jump" step, but a new icon now applies. When an "Evacuation Icon" is flipped, the top ship in the Prepared Civilian Ships stack is evacuated to one of the two port space areas on the Galactica board. If there are no Prepared Civilian Ships, the icon has no effect. Civilian Ships may also now be evacuated from the Shipyard location and placed in one of the port space areas.

    As an action, the Admiral may order the fleet to jump away from New Caprica. All humans remaining on New Caprica are executed and any civilian ships remaining are destroyed. Resource losses from these events are incurred and victory is calculated.

    Locations and General Actions
    • Medical Center - You may only draw 1 Skill Card during your Receive Skill Cards step. You may not move to this location with your normal movement.
    • Detention - You may not move or add more than 2 cards to Skill checks. You may not move to this location with your normal movement. Action: Pass this Skill check to move to any location. [Skill 9, Politics, Tactics]
    • Resistance HQ - Human Action: Choose a character on New Caprica (human or Cylon), then pass this Skill check to execute him. [Skill 7, Leadership, Tactics, Treachery]
    • Occupation Authority - Human Action: If you are the President, you may draw 1 Quorum Card. Then, you may play 1 Quorum Card. Cylon Action: Activate 1 Occupation Force and then place 1 Occupation Force on this location.
    • Breeder’s Canyon - Human Action: Reduce the highest resource by 1 to advance the fleet marker 1 space up the Jump track. Cylon Action: Draw and resolve the top card of the Crisis Deck. Skip the Activate Cylon Ships and Prepare for Jump Steps of this turn.
    • Shipyard - Human Action: Prepare or evacuate 1 Civilian Ship. If you evacuate a civilian ship, you may then move to any Galactica location. Cylon Action: Look at the top ship of the Locked Civilian Ship stack, and place it on the top or bottom of the stack.

    • General Human Action: Attack Occupation Forces - Roll a die. If 5 or higher, destroy an occupation force on your location. You may discard a "Maximum Firepower" Skill Card to reroll an "Attack Occupation Force" die roll.
    • General Cylon Action: Detain a Human - If you are in a location containing a human character and an occupation force, roll a die. On 1-3, move the human to "Detention"; on 4-7, move the human to the "Medical Center"; on 8 or higher, nothing happens.

    There are a number of special rules that apply to the Medical Center and Detention locations:
    • Any effect that would send a player on a New Caprica location to "Sickbay" sends them to the "Medical Center" instead.
    • Any effects on players on New Caprica that would place them in the "Brig" send them to "Detention" instead. Character abilities that apply to the "Brig" apply to "Detention" while that character is on New Caprica. Quorum Cards that refer to the "Brig" apply to "Detention" while the President is on New Caprica. Reveal actions made in "Detention" are not resolved, similar to if a reveal is made in the "Brig".
    • If the Admiral is sent to "Detention", he does not lose his title.
    • Until Galactica returns to orbit, new human players resulting from executions start out at the "Resistance HQ" instead of their normal start locations.
    • Until Galactica returns to orbit, Cylon players that would normally move to the "Resurrection Ship" move to the "Medical Center" instead. Cylon players cannot be sent to "Detention".

    Turn 01: Helena Cain | Crisis: Keep Tabs on Visitor | Cain orders a strike on the Basestar from the Pegasus CIC, destroying the enemy ship. A report of a suspicious person within the fleet is written off as mere paranoia; fortunately, nothing negative comes of it.
    Turn 02: Cavil | Crisis: Cylon Tracking Device | Cavil decides to visit the human fleet, bringing along with him a present. The tracking device hidden in the fleet brings in a new Basestar to their location.
    Turn 03: Tom Zarek | Crisis: Prison Labor | Zarek gives Cain control of the situation again, and the opposing Basestar is damaged again, but so is Pegasus. A labor dispute between the fleet and the prison population is successfully defused.

    Turn 06: Anastasia "Dee" Dualla | Crisis: Food Hoarding in the Fleet | Dee works the fleet communications to move civilian ships out of harms' way. Fears of food and water shortages results in hoarding within the fleet; the situation does not resolve as planned, resulting in the loss of morale and life.

    Turn 16: Cavil | Crisis: The Black Market | Cavil continues to quietly work aboard Galactica, and an underground organization runs rampant through the fleet. The fleet jumps to an icy moon to resupply, and sleeper agents begin to awaken...

    Turn 17: Tom Zarek | Crisis: Review Galactica's Log | Zarek plans for future problems in the fleet, and Admiral Cain is caught up in investigations into the battlestars' logs.
    Turn 18: Louanne "Kat" Katraine | Kat moves to a secluded part of Galactica and sets off a massive explosion that damages Galactica's port-side.

    Turn 29: Helena Cain | Cain continues to direct the Raiders' attacks and cuts through the last of the human defenses.
    Turn 30: Cavil | Cavil takes advantage of the situation to aggressively rush Centurion boarding parties into Galactica.
    Turn 31: Tom Zarek (Arivia) | Crisis: Rescue Caprica Survivors | Zarek and Baltar prepare to defend Galactica from the invading Centurions and supplies are spent to support and reassure the fleet.
    Turn 32: Louanne "Kat" Katraine | Kat begins to press the Centurion boarders toward the interior parts of Galactica.
    Turn 33: Gaius Baltar | Crisis: Unidentified Ship | The damaged access to the armory is finally repaired. DRADIS suffers a temporary glitch that causes a civilian ship to appear as an unknown, but the problem is fixed quickly before anything worse occurs.
    Turn 34: Anastasia "Dee" Dualla | Crisis: Elections Loom | Apollo is released from Sickbay in time to help Galactica's defense, while rumors of an upcoming election are quickly squashed.
    Turn 35: Lee "Apollo" Adama | Crisis: Witch Hunt | The continuing attacks on the advancing Centurions are unsuccessful as the Cylon boarding parties begin to break through the last of the human defenses.
    Turn 36: Helena Cain | Cain leads the final charge into Galactica, securing it for the Cylon forces.

    Cylon Victory has been achieved on Turn 36 via Centurion Boarding Party!

    Cylon Leader Victory with the Show Their True Nature agenda!

    • Previous BSG:BG PbP Hosts (Weight +5)
    • Previous BSG:BG PbP players (Weight +3)

    Well if hosting IRC games counts, then I'm also in the +5. I also bought your copy of BSG for you, and drove you to pick up Pegasus. So there.

    That's like +infinity.

    You know, I just realized that my selection method doesn't make a whole lot of sense. *shrug* It is what it is, and sometimes things in life are just random and arbitrary. Whatever. The dice will fall how they will, and there will be plenty of opportunities for others to get their game on.

    Sign-ups end in a bit over 12 hours. Get in while you can.

    I want to play in this but I have a feeling that a) I should probably play vanilla first and b) there's likely a handful of spoilers for the rest of season 2. But but executing people as Caiiiiiiin...

    Really the only questionable bit is the "Played a game before" bit and even that makes some sense, it's just not a good thing if that becomes habitual. The scenario where you can't take part unless you've already taken part previously is the whole Catch-22 thing and prone to cliquish drama.

    most GMs save spots for newbies though.

    IMO it makes sense to want experienced players for a larger/cylon-leader-having game

    You should be okay with most spoilers since they will likely just be a name of a crisis and then an effect. Then later on when you watch the show you may kind of get whats happening before it actually happens, except for a few outright spoilers...

    That said the vast majority of games give new players a higher chance of getting in, which is awesome if you're new, but sucks for the majority of the players.

    I'm going to restate that my objection is that if it became habitual. It certainly isn't at the moment.

    Edit: And objection is even too strong a word. Blarney was saying it made no sense where I intended to respond that it only has potential negative effects. Even then, two of the three I agree with completely.

    Yeah, it was a point I was mulling over for a while. On one hand, it's nice to get new people into the game, give them a chance to play a PbP. On the other hand, this is an expansion game and I would prefer more veteran players to make the game run more smoothly. (Though I do admit this tends not to be much of a problem after a couple time around the table.) So I'm favoring the latter hand, though in a bit of an extreme fashion and phrased in a slightly unfriendly way. As the game gets more exposure and practice, I can see slots being allotted in a more fair, even fashion for all, but for an early game, I kind of want to favor those who have been around longer.
