    BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE [WW] GAME

    GAME BEGINS HERE

    Human

    Baltar – Each night he must ask if a particular player is Six (more below). If he finds Six then he will defect to the Cylon side and be able to PM with Six only for the remainder of the game as long as Six is still alive. Baltar CANNOT PM the other Cylons. If the 2 Specialists die and Baltar is still on the good side he will take over the identification of Cylons.* Baltar is similar to the Goth.

    *There will be one night of no autopsies between the Specialists' death and Baltar taking over.

    Athena (good Cylon) – Each night she can scan players to find Cylons.* This is the Seer of the game. If Athena is lynched the autopsy will show Cylon.

    *Baltar is human even if he has defected but she will sense that he is helping the Cylons.

    Helo - He has a one time ability to kill during the day. If he kills Cylon #12 with his special one shot kill, Cylon #12 does not have time to detonate and take out a human. In other words, Helo has the Hunter Insta-Kill ability in the game.

    Apollo – He can ask the role of a dead player each night.* He is the Undertaker of the game.

    * He will be told the role of a Human player, and whether the lynched Cylon is Athena, but he won't be told of the (bad) Cylon's role.

    Starbuck – She can protect one person per night. She is the Hunter of the game. If she protects a bad Cylon (not Athena) she will die, and this will override any kill order by the Cylons for the night.* She can protect the same player more than once but NOT on consecutive nights. She may choose to protect herself or no one.

    * If Baltar defects to the Cylon side, protecting him will do no harm since he is still a Human.

    2 Specialists - As long as one is alive you will be able to tell whether a player was Cylon or Human when lynched or killed by Helo. If all the specialists are killed and Baltar is dead or joined the Cylons then you will be lynching blind. The specialists may PM each other at any time, similar to the Neighborhood Watch.

    5 Citizens – No powers other than voting.

    Cylon

    Six – Each night she must ask if a particular player is Baltar. On the first night she will get 2 attempts. If she finds Baltar then Baltar defects to the Cylon side and they are able to PM each other only for the remainder of the game as long as they live. Six is similar to the Vampire.

    Brother Cavil – He can ask the role of a dead human each night (same powers as Apollo).

    Cylon #12 – The Cylons do not know #12 is a Cylon. #12 knows the other Cylons, however. If lynched #12 detonates and take out anyone of his/her choosing. If the other Cylons attack #12 at night, they will be informed that they found Cylon #12 and will be able to PM with #12 for the remainder of the game.*

    * If Six and Cavil were killed before finding Cylon #12 then Cylon #12 takes over the role of nightly killings. If Baltar has switched sides and is still alive #12 still gets to choose the nightly victim. Baltar only takes over if he is the only one remaining.

    Private Messaging

    - Six and Cavil can PM each other at all times.

    - Cylon #12 may start PMing all other Cylons (except Athena of course) when and only when the Cylons make contact by attempting to kill #12.

    - Baltar and Six may PM each other only when one of them makes contact.

    - Baltar may NOT PM the other Cylons (other than Six) even after making contact.

    - 2 Specialists may PM each other at any time.

    - Everyone: no PMs allowed (other than the relationships listed above) except to the GG.

    Miscellaneous

    Each night the specials will submit their requests even if they choose to do nothing it must be submitted, except for the Cylons who MUST kill each night.

    Possible Outcome of Events
    - Lynching: Player was Human or Cylon (Athena will be found to be a Cylon).
    - Athena scan: Player is Human or Cylon. (Baltar is human even if he has defected but she will sense that he is helping the Cylons)
    - Apollo scan: Player is role x.
    - Six/Baltar scan: Player is or is not Six/Baltar
    - Cavil scan: Player is role x.

    - Starbuck protects a Cylon (except Baltar and Athena): Starbuck dies. Cylon killing is overrode (only one death that night).
    - Starbuck protects a Human (or Athena) and Cylons attempt to kill said Human: No deaths that night.
    - Cylons attempt to kill Cylon #12. #12, Six and Cavil are told what happened and no deaths that night.
    - Six or Baltar find each other. Killing still occurs. It will be publicly announced during the next day by the GG that the Humans have a traitor among them.

    Order of events:
    1. Starbuck protects
    2. Apollo, Athena and Cavil scan.
    3. Cylons kill
    4. Six scans for Baltar
    5. Baltar scans for Six

    Answers to all scans will be given immediately before the next day starts.

    Lynching votes: Time-limited at the gamemaster's discretion.

    Please bold your votes AND withdrawals.

    No post-editing permitted during the game.*

    *Exception: if you are maintaining a vote count, your post MAY be edited.

    Victory

    Humans win by killing all the Cylons (except Athena) and Baltar (if he has defected).

    Cylons win by killing all Humans (including Athena and Baltar if he hasn't defected).

    Would be nice if we could begin on Monday.

    But in reality, we begin when we get 15 players.

    I'd like to participate but with a small caveat; at present, I'm not even in Europe at the moment, but am based in central Asia, hence time zones may present something of a challenge.

    I'll give it a try but I will be thinking of the original Galactica series when I play.

    So I'll take it Sythas is Baltar! Pretty sure about that now, Athena probably to scan Sythas this night?!




    Edit: Sorry, I'll take that back!!

    *Baltar is human even if he has defected but she will sense that he is helping the Cylons.

    Sorry for being a 100% noob when it comes to Battlestar Galactica (whatever era), but is he a she or is she a he?

    Just saying for anyone who may be hesitant to join due to not knowing anything about the series: the rules above are it -- that's all you need to know to play. There's absolutely no need to know anything about the show itself. Hell, when I said the game is loosely based on the show, I meant loosely. :D

    Any way we could scale it back a little so we can play with 10? 15 is a high number to get with this game. Just wondering impatiently.

    Not a much we can do with 10 players.

    But we can put this game on hold and do a regular ol' WW game in the hopes of generating interest?

    *bump* let's try this again...

    15 players needed. I reset the sign-ups, so if you've already signed up above, please sign up again.

    I hope we can get this game going!
