BSG: Pegasus - Game 26 - Game Over

Well, I think it's 26 anyways.
bsg-bg-logo.png
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.

    This will be a 7-player Pegasus/New Caprica game. As a small thank-you to the hosts who came before, one slot will be reserved for someone who has previously hosted a game. Please indicate when !Signing up if you qualify just to make it easier to pick out. The remaining six players will be chosen randomly when signups are closed.


    Signups are closed!



    Additional, forgotten note: "Shuffle the deck" effects from things will be mitigated as appropriate to avoid screwing up scouted crises and such. Thirty-Three will be shuffled into the top 5 crises. The forced Scar crisis from the Mining Asteroid destination will not shuffle the deck. I think these are the only two - any other similar effects will be changed as appropriate.

    Original OP taken from Akinos/Darian, modified by MrBlarney, including Pegasus Expansion rules and stolen by Osvik, and myself in turn.

    I still look foward as a human to frak some toasters (or if I turn out to be cylon - to toast some frakking humans).

    Thus, !Sign Up

    Upon this, one has to remark that men ought either to be well treated or crushed, because they can avenge themselves of lighter injuries, of more serious ones they cannot.

    It would be awesome to start a game from the beginning. Normally, I'm always the reserve player.

    When the worst thing about 33 is that it messes up all your scouting, it seems rather wrong somehow...

    Well, this is a bit different. We have exactly enough people signed up for two of these games. I think running two at once might be a little much, so either during this game, or after it finishes, I will attempt to start a second game with everyone who signed up but didn't get in for this one.

    Players, in turn order:

    Void Slayer - President Laura Roslin
    Nicolo M - Admiral William Adama
    Dracil - Sharon "Boomer" Valerii
    Osvik - Cavil
    The Law - Tom Zarek
    GoodOmens - Galen Tyrol
    Capfalcon - Karl "Helo" Agathon


    Please post your character choices, starting draws and locations as applicable. One player must choose a Cylon Leader, otherwise normal character selection rules apply.

    While we're waiting to get started, I wanted to throw out a house rule idea I had. In most of my games, Morale has been a significant problem. The fleet seems to lose it quickly, and I've seen loss by Morale in about a third of the games I've played.

    So, here's my idea: if a Cylon is executed, the fleet gains 1 Morale. Simple, thematic, and it makes execution a more interesting option (and less of a weapon for the Cylons themselves).

    I'm not necessarily proposing it for this game (although if people like it, we can give it a shot).

    Also, I will be away from Wednesday to Friday (Sep. 1-3). I'll be back Friday evening.

    Everyone who isn't first needs to pick 3 cards from their normal draw to start with. (2 for the Cylon Leader).

    Draws, Loyalty cards, Agenda, and Quorum card sent out. Game on!

    Turn Progress:
    1. Receive Skills - 3 Pol, 2 Ldr
    2. Movement Step - Stay in President's Office
    3. Action Step - Play 1 Politics - Consolidate Power to draw 2 Tactics
    4. Crisis Step - Loss of a Friend
    5. Activate Cylon Ships Step - (activate heavy raiders)
    6. Prepare for Jump Step - (jump prep)

    After finding out that the government of the Twelve Colonies has been annihilated, Laura Roslin finds herself President. The people are nervous, and will be watching for strong - or weak - leadership. How will you begin your term?

    It definitely gives the "You are a sympathizer" card a whole new meaning...

    Fail -1 morale and the current player discards 2 Skill Cards.
    (activate heavy raiders)
    (jump prep)[/QUOTE]

    Seems like the best choice, I can contribute a large amount if we want to try and pass this.
