[BSG: Exodus] - Game 6 - Game Over

Base Set, Pegasus Expansion, Exodus 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 Exodus expansion adds three modules to the game, including the Cylon Fleet board and CAG title, new Loyalty Cards in The Final Five and Personal Goals, and the Ionian Nebula goal, which introduces more effects through Trauma tokens that affect both the players as well as new NPCs among the fleet. The following rules apply to the new situations and rules introduced in the Pegasus and Exodus Expansions. For rules that apply solely to the base set, look to one of the older games.

    Pegasus and Exodus Expansion OP by MrBlarney, original Base Set OP taken from Akinos/Darian.


    This will be a set of 2 5-player games using all Pegasus and Exodus components. I will be starting one game now and one game later, after the first has had a chance to get going. Game types will be either New Caprica or Ionian Nebula, as chosen by the players. I will be picking 10 players at random and splitting them based on game type preference. This game will include 5 players who chose the same game type, and the next will include the other 5 and use the majority-preferred game type. (This makes sense in my head, at least.)

    Signups are open until 6:00 PM Friday (CDT). Please choose a game type when signing up. This will not count against you if you choose the Unfavorite, you'll just end up in the other type of game.

    Sure. You could check out some of the other games as well - they're in the PbP index.

    Reading the rules is a good idea, but it's also helpful to read through one of the already-completed Exodus games, to get a feel for the PbP format.

    !Sign up! Ionian Nebula, please.

    I followed the previous PbPs as they were played - it was like having a favourite TV show to come home to every day - but I'm a new player, hope that's cool.

    Sign Up for the Ionian Nebula preferably.

    Well, maybe that extra time wasn't needed after all.

    Signups are closed!

    The random number generator has chosen the players. The overwhelming popularity of the Ionian Nebula has chosen the game type, which will be... *drumroll* Ionian Nebula.

    The players for the next game:
    Spoiler:

    The players for this game are:

    iamtheaznman - President Tory Foster
    antherem - Admiral Karl "Helo" Agathon
    XiV - Cally Tyrol
    El Skid - CAG Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
    Rius - Felix Gaeta

    Please begin choosing your characters, starting draws and locations as appropriate. A Cylon Leader may be chosen but is not required - if one is picked they'll get a Hostile Agenda and remove one You Are a Cylon card from the Loyalty deck. You may post a list of choices if your turn isn't up yet. Good luck all!

    I've never been a huge fan of pilots, but I'll give Starbuck a try.

    Start with 1x Leadership, 2x Tactics.

    El Skid, before I choose a character; if you'd rather be Dee or the Chief, then I'd be happy to play a Pilot.

  • RiusRius Registered User regular
    edited May 2011
    Once El Skid posts again, if he's switching to a Support character, I'll pick Kat, drawing Tac/Pil/Pil.

    If he chooses to keep his Starbuck choice, then I'll play as Felix, drawing Pol/Lead/Tac.

    Edit: Also, please don't change your mind and pick a Cylon Leader. It'd be nice to finally have a game without one =)

    Cally was already taken as a support person, so no, it's okay. I'll try out the whole CAG thing (pending other peoples' decisions) and see how I like it.

    Also, while I'm at it- does Starbuck really get the option of (when CAG) using the CAG action twice to activate 2 raiders and get 2 actions when piloting a viper? That seems...sweet.

    You can have multiple Support characters, though, even before the Big Three have been chosen at least once each. Just thought I'd ask =) Felix will be at least as fun to play as Kat.

    About Starbuck... you're talking about if you're in space already, right?
    Action: Once per turn, if you are piloting a viper, you may activate 1 unmanned viper and then take another action.

    Even though Starbuck gets two actions, you can only use that particular CAG action once per turn.
