NEW GAME STARTING STELLAR SOAP OPERA

Post by Everpksed » January 2nd, 2018, 5:07 pm

Well, I said I was going to wait until the middle of January to start GM'ing a new game. Relatives are all on their way home, it is brutally cold outside and I am ready to begin.

This game is going to be a 6P game with a larger galaxy(4 ring) We can have a Symmetrical galaxy where the HS are in the third ring, or we can have Asymmetrical where players can place their own HS. We will vote on this. We will be using variants from base set and both expansions(SE and SOT) so please have all sets if you intend to play. The Following will be the Strategy Cards used:

Leadership
Diplomacy II
Assembly II (from SOT w/variant explained below)
Production
Trade II or III(based on vote for Mercenaries)
Warfare II
Technology II
Bureaucracy

The options that are definitely included are the following:

Core Set
Leaders

Shattered Empire
Race Specific Technologies(both SE and SOT)
Shock Troops
Wormhole Nexus
Facilities
Custodians of Mecatol Rex

Shards of the Throne
Preliminary Objectives
Flagships
Mechanized Units(RAW or house ruled to be voted on)
Political Intrigue

The following will be options to be voted on:

Long War(14VP or 13VP with the use of Bureaucracy)
Distant Suns(Territorial if voted yes)
Artifacts
Space Mines
Final Frontier
Mercenaries

Now, Mayo438 has expressed that he would like to play, so I will include him here. Lacey has also expressed a possible interest, so I will PM her. I will then go off of the waiting list. First 4 people to accept will reserve themselves a chair at the table. I will send out 25 invites at a time. You will have 48hrs to respond before the next set goes out.

The political variant is that everybody will receive 2PCTG to begin the game instead of 2PC's. One PC will be drawn and placed on the table at the game's start. When Assembly is activated, 2 more PC's will be drawn so there is a total of 3PC's. The holder of the Assembly SC will choose a Speaker and also choose another player(his/herself if desired) to pick a PC to play. The player who chooses the PC will also choose one of the 2 remaining PC's to hold over until the next round and choose 1 to discard. In this way there will always be 1PC visible and 3 to choose from at the Assembly.

The first set of invites:

Euronymous 109

Elzo, I will add you to playing if I do not get 6 with the first set of invites. You would be in the second wave, so you will be in if we get to the second wave.

I was thinking that everybody would send me their top 3 and I would eliminate any repeats.
