    Oh, I'm also (most likely) going to remove the treachery from destiny, because I'm cool like that.

  • blahmcblahblahmcblah I never drink... wine. Registered User regular
    Er, well, some of the treachery.

    Turn 27: Helena Cain (Professor Phobos)

    Sherman "Doc" Cottle (Cutfang) - Use general ability, targeting Helena Cain (Professor Phobos). Cutfang draws 2 Leadership cards then passes two skill cards from his hand to Professor Phobos.
    Romo Lampkin (blahmcblah) - Activate Quorum Chamber, drawing one card from the Quorum deck then playing Consult the Oracle from the hand. blahmcblah looks at the bottom of the Destination deck then discards Treachery 3 - A Better Machine and Treachery 3 - A Better Machine from the Destiny deck before it is reshuffled.
    Gaius Baltar, Daybreak ver. (Phyphor) - (Current Step)
    Louanne "Kat" Katraine (Grunt's Ghosts) -
    Lee Adama, Daybreak ver. (Tenek) -

    Doc Cottle communicates with Admiral Cain to figure out how Demetrius can support the rest of the fleet. Romo Lampkin meets with a priest for a blessing in hopes for smoother travels.

    Meh, our plans don't rely on any checks. Though having treachery constantly get dealt in would have been hilarious

    Add raiders to starboard quarter, then mess with jump prep

    Turn 27: Helena Cain (Professor Phobos)

    Gaius Baltar, Daybreak ver. (Phyphor) - Phyphor activates Basestar Bridge, first adding three Raiders to the Starboard-Quarter (1 o'clock) area of the Cylon Fleet Board, then manipulating Jump Preparation / Pursuit Track. Pursuit Track advances to Level 5 - The cylon fleet jumps in.
    Louanne "Kat" Katraine (Grunt's Ghosts) - (Current Step)
    Lee Adama, Daybreak ver. (Tenek) -

    Gaius Baltar jumps the rest of the Cylon Fleet before the humans have finished their preparations - the fleet now lies under siege from all directions.

    Call it GG, Phyphor and I have the cards to go either way.

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    Cain, which of the civvies you looked at should we prioritize for escorts?

  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    They were both, uh, equally worth protecting, but not perhaps the most worth protecting out of the total set of civilian ships. In my group we refer to the 0 Pop ships as the "Douchebag Ships", and I can safely say these ships were not full of douchebags.

    I kinda feel like a dumbass now. Kaneski just did such a good job of being helpful I kinda forgot he was a toaster :(

    I uh... feel that's skirting the secrecy rules quite a lot. "Not 0" is not the same as "Yep, they need protecting"...

    It's like what happens every now and again: "1 card high" "how high? like low-high or high-high?".

    Let's take a poll: Kat Secret Cylon or D'Anna trying to pin blame?

    I agree. Sorry. (That I abused the secrecy rules now that I think about it)

    Since XO has already been played, and you're both in the brig and cain is the cag, I don't think you actually can escort any of the 6 in danger before they get destroyed

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    Eh. Crisis cards can't all have Activate Raiders...

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Is it the most common though!

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    Incidentally @Grunt's Ghosts, now would be a great time for you to pull out Combat Veteran. Just saying.

  • blahmcblahblahmcblah I never drink... wine. Registered User regular
    Or another Unorthodox Plan to activate Command.

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    Yes, either of those would be very nice. Just be very careful about your actions if you do have one.

    Tactics 1 - Launch Scout

    Geth roll 1d8

    1d8 2 [1d8=2]

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Geth says nope!

    @Tenek

  • Grunt's GhostsGrunt's Ghosts Registered User regular
    I can't do nothing from the brig. I need my ship!

  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    I wouldn't have trusted your pick anyway.

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    Play Piloting 4 - Combat Veteran. Activate one of the vipers at 5:00 and escort I, move to 3:00 and escort A.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Stupid new cards

  • CutfangCutfang Registered User regular
    Awesome new cards.

    Turn 27: Helena Cain (Professor Phobos)

    Louanne "Kat" Katraine (Grunt's Ghosts) - Play Tactics 1 - Launch Scout, but the roll fails. A Raptor is destroyed.
    Lee Adama, Daybreak ver. (Tenek) - Play Piloting 4 - Combat Veteran, activating an unmanned viper in Port-Quarter (5 o'clock). With three activations, Tenek escorts civilian ship I, moves to Aft (3 o'clock), and escorts civilian ship A.

    Though some of the fleet's best pilots remain in the brig, the remainder of the fleet does their best to respond to threats. A hangar accident takes out one of the few remaining Raptors, but Vipers move into position to engage with Cylon Raiders. Through the fleet, the Cylons have begun to act, and aboard one civilian ship, people are falling ill for no apparent reason...

    Yay raiders! Boo jump prep. Yay pop and morale loss! Boo lea/tac

  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    This is unexpected. SoE is over, but both pilots still brigged.

    Lets see... phobos can probably throw his stack in to force this through. Hostile destiny though and its their highest resources. Sadly, I don't expect them to throw cards away... Anyway.

    1 card

    If there are interrupts, I may need to rethink.

  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    Honestly?

    We're gonna need my cards. If only for a hail mary shot at passing Kaneski's crisis if it's a skill-based one. It sucks, but I don't see any way I can contribute enough to guarantee success that doesn't gimp future skill checks.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Aren't all the SC cards skill checks?

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    Some are choices.

  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    I haven't seen them all. Maybe.

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    If you want cards, then we need to pass the check.

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    I can assure you that it is totally worth it, and not just for the resources.

    Huh, you're right. There's one each of pres/adm/cag chooses

    2 engineering for whatever he needs to sacrifice to pass? I'll take it!

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    2?

  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    Can I get a hand update, then? I'm drunk enough this afternoon I don't want to make a mistake.

  • CutfangCutfang Registered User regular
    Pass

    Sigh. Well, getting to 16 or so should be enough to counter cylons + destiny. Any takers? Seriously, it'll be worth it.
