Fly me away on the wings of an angel.


(thread re-made because it was in the wrong forum. Sorry for the spam folks)

Who wants a throne made of ugly swords anyway?



Opening recruitment for a new pbf of Game of Thrones, as we did a few times before. Expect me to screw up combat calculations a few times, and forget to remove orders from the map, but I'm told people had fun.

This time around we will be using the Dance with Dragons expansion. It comes with a crazy start situation:

and even crazier House Cards. Because of the advanced start, the game also only lasts a maximum of six turns.

Check out the first thread for my rather poor summary of the rules, if you think you might find it useful. Quick links:
Rulebook
Comprehensive summary and reference
FAQ
List of Wildling cards
Contents of Westeros decks

Opening recruitment for now, it will last at least two days, possibly a few more, depending on how much interest there is. This game cannot work with less than 6 players. Pththya-lyi is guaranteed a slot, as reigning champion, and people who weren't in the last game will be given priority.

The Hall of Champions:
Mikey Purp of House Tyrell - thread
GutterOwl of House Greyjoy - thread
Pththya-lyi of House Stark - thread

Never done this Dance of Dragons version before, but I'll try my hand at driving an ancient noble lineage to complete ruin over the course of six turns.

Hey friends, I'm afraid it's looking like this game won't happen for now. I've posted enough in the thread and Discord that I don't want to harass people with more advertising. I will of course keep the thread open, and if we do get a 6th player then we're off to the races, but if it doesn't work out I'll make sure to keep all of you in mind and message you in a month or two when I try again.

The game may begin!

KhediveRex, from your phrasing I'm assuming you haven't actually played this before. I made an attempt to summarize the rules somewhere on the first page of the first thread, though in hindsight I don't consider that I've done a particularly good job. There is also a fairly good, albeit not complete, tutorial video here. I think my recommendation would be watch that video to get a grasp of mechanics, then glance through either my summary or the rulebook to try to fill gaps. You are of course free to also ask me any questions via Discord.

Speaking of, by the grace of the mods, we have again been granted a separate channel on the Discord. For the new people, here's an invite if you need it https://discord.gg/DWnexP3 ; I'm sure we'll be conducting deep diplomatic conversations in the channel we've been given. Discord is also what you will need to send me your orders and House card decisions.

House assignments:

The General - Stark (actually Bolton in this version... expect me to screw this up a lot )
nimby - Baratheon
ETB - Greyjoy
Pththya-lyi - Martell
Acceptableloss - Lannister
KhediveRex - Tyrell

Turn 1 may begin!




Note: Be mindful of the two unique garrisons: Baratheon has a strength 4 garrison at Storm's End, and Tyrell strength 3 at Oldtown.
Also be mindful that we only play 6 turns, not the normal 10.
Everyone has 5 PTs to start with, as per the normal game.

One important note. I will change my ways slightly and suggest that you point out if you want to leave a power token behind to establish control. If you say nothing, I assume you are leaving one behind, but you should probably say it just to be sure. Tyrell is actually not leaving a PT this time (confirmed via PM).

Strength 9 vs. 6
Tyrell plays:
[2] Ser Jon Fossoway: 1 Sword
Baratheon plays:
[4] Stannis Baratheon: If you are not being supported in this combat, remove all Support orders (including your own) adjacent to the embattled area, cancelling any supporting strength they may have been providing.
Final strength 5 vs. 10. Baratheon victory. The Tyrell units retreat and are routed.
