    I apologize, guys. I think my school's systems got hit with the thing that went around April Fool's Day, and for some reason I couldn't maintain a connection to the network, and so had no real way to update this.

    Working on it right now.

    Laura Roslin has been placed in the Brig. What is your second action, President Billy?

    I will play Quorum - Inspirational Speech. For karma related dice rolling purposes and because the game has been on hold for several days I will actually make said speech:

    Men and women of the fleet, this is your president.

    Much has happened since the public was informed of the new cylon threat. We have seen our former Admiral and President confirmed as cylons and arrested as traitors to humanity. These two arrests represent half of the known cylon models. Our investigation into the cylon threat is progressing and rest assured this government will not rest until we have uncovered the true identities of the remaining saboteurs. They, much like these two, will cause you no direct harm.

    As many of you are aware, we have also faced crises on other fronts. Our institutions of research have come under attack and have successfully been defended. Our movements have been tracked and we have escaped. Time and time again we have eluded our pursuers. Their technology outstrips ours but they can not hope to match our resolve. While we have gone hungry we have not lost heart. Our will remains intact and unmatched by those who would do us harm.

    Yet despite our greatest of intentions we have not always emerged from these trials unscathed. We have lost our friends and family to unimaginable tragedies and some of our best and brightest have not returned from their missions. While we must never forget those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this fleet, we must move forward. We must not become consumed by a desire for revenge and we must not allow our decisions to become clouded by a blind drive for vengeance. Instead let us be motivated by our belief and trust in each other. To those who lack such hope, may you turn towards those we rescued from Caprica. They held out against all odds. They never lost hope. They never stopped to consider the possibility of defeat at the hands of the cylons.

    And neither will we.

    So say we all!


    Inspirational Speech -- Action: Roll a die. If 6 or higher, gain 1 morale and remove this card from the game. Otherwise, no effect and discard this card.

    I know our morale is fine, so I don't necessarily expect a SP here since we burnt a lot of tactics cards on that brig check, but you'll all have to trust that this was the best action available to me. Infer what you will about the strength and current usefulness of rest of the Quorum Hand and my remaining card.

    Can I get a hand update? Because I'll be damned if I didn't go clearing my inbox willy-nilly the other day, and have no idea what I have to work with now.

    Glad to see you are back though.

    Almost. Suffice it to say, both technology and people suck. :-P Once again, I apologize for the delays, and hope to quash them from here on.

    Mr. President's speech is met with silence from the fleet. And not the good kind of silence, either. Pundits remark on the remarkable amount of time the President spent rehashing the terrible tragedies in the fleet's past, and his slurred, seemingly drunken delivery. A spike in suicides is observed, but it is not statistically significant and therefore cannot be conclusively linked to the President's speech.

    Meanwhile, Admiral Tigh has been busy coming up with a plan to build a brewery ship.

    It couldn't hurt just to make sure you think you're contributing what Galdalf thinks you're contributing. I know from GMing games that mistakes can happen on both ends.

    Gandalf double-checked with me.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I had the correct card in mind though, it will, as previously mentioned, only help a little.

    And with that, folks, I'm regrettably going to have to temporarily suspend this game. There have obviously been delays, and I had hoped that those would go away, but it seems that life and people are persistent in their awfulness. I'm looking for a new place to live right now, and trying to catch up simultaneously on a bunch of work that has piled up due to the same reasons I'm having to move.

    I should know something more definite in a few days, but it's looking like I'll have to put this on hold until the summer. I'll keep the spreadsheet intact, if everyone is open to the idea of coming back to this at some point. Sorry about this.
