When we play the actual RPG, there is obviously the issue of how to RP around school when your character is supposedly in the middle of a match. Since I don't want people to feel limited to discussing strategy in the locker room, you will also be able to post in the normal location threads, RPing as if the match hasn't started yet. The match chronologically occurs in the RP boards on the day the match actually ends. If you have comments or suggestions, let me know!

Rules will be updated late tonight so make sure to check back later. 1st Period actions will be due Thursday night at 11:00 PM CT. Declare your position and skills in the Character Setup thread in the Game 2 board. Captains should send me their team names.

Rule changes are up! New rules for the Beater and Seeker are marked in red.
After testing the game today at home I think Keepers' rules are okay for now. Game 1 was rough for the Keepers because of the improbably high Chase rolls. We'll continue to test this way and see if it feels better after a few tries. As a tip to the Keepers, pay attention to what goals players tend to shoot at and strategically which goals you think they should go for. I just lost a game to Andrew because I didn't pay attention that he never shot on the 20 pt hoop and I kept guarding it.

Cornucopia rules have been updated! After some more playtesting and taking your feedback into consideration I think this rule set is much clearer and simpler. The major change is that there is no longer a "victory point" aspect of the game. The goal is simply to not die and have the most health at the end.

I'm going to have the first copy of Cornucopia sent off to be printed tomorrow. Please read through the revised rules and let me know if anything else needs to be clarified. These rules are for you, so if you don't understand something let's get it clarified now and not after it's printed!
Walltur: Mmk, I can see that now

Vester Lombard: Beating a seeker in the 4th is pretty huge. Each IP is essentially erasing the effect of one of their successful searches.
Mar 17, 2016 16:28:34 GMT
Quinn Starling: Yeah, I would have hit Ginger more if I thought she'd rest up or if you'd heal her. But I figured that you guys would maybe leave her at 2 since that was her max, especially since we decided to stay inujurred, too Lol
Mar 17, 2016 16:36:34 GMT
Quinn Starling: We planned back between periods 2-3 to consider staying injured if we got to -3 again, to waste any coming beatings. If you aim for low DCs, have enough skill to make up for the IP, AND get lucky, it's sometimes worth it to keep the damage & keep rolling
Mar 17, 2016 17:34:53 GMT
Vester Lombard: I think in the 2nd period you definitely have to rest. 3rd period, maybe, pending your team strategy. 4th period, probably not.

Sprye Tatel: In the interest of not adding a new post each day to the Space Debate threads, would we be interested in sharing ideas via Google Docs? tinyurl.com/zlk8sb3

Quinn Starling: I'm in favor of death penalty for illegal pretty floral bonnets. I think that needs to be an argument that happens Lol
Mar 21, 2016 13:54:41 GMT
Walltur: Pro, but under the argument that all viewers of the bonnet be executed, rather than the wearer. Deadly illegal bonnets
Mar 22, 2016 4:16:02 GMT
Quinn Starling: Depends on how pretty. We'd need a numerical rating scale, to start. Any bonnet rated 6 or over (by 2/3 vote of galactic council) is determined "pretty" and a single flower may be defined as "floral." Any fixture worn upon the head may serve as "bonnet."
Mar 22, 2016 15:54:13 GMT
Quinn Starling: (that's on a scale of 1-10) And I'd be against death penalty for illegal ones (unregistered, obtained illegally, etc.) Jail sentencing and community work are appropriate, but not death penalty. Too extreme.
Mar 22, 2016 15:56:18 GMT
Vester Lombard: While I am against the death penalty for pretty floral bonnets, I do think that all people who have encountered the bonnet should have their brains slightly melted. I think this would both save lives and prevent any risk of spreading that fashion
Mar 22, 2016 16:25:34 GMT
Sprye Tatel: Again with the slightly-melting brains proposal? Seems very convenient for the Muppet-race; who can re-grow/stuff brain cells! Whose pocket are you in? Who is pulling your strings!?
Mar 22, 2016 17:16:41 GMT
Sprye Tatel: I say that the punishment should fit the crime: The penalty for Pretty Floral Bonnet's (PFB's) should be death by PFB!
Mar 22, 2016 17:19:46 GMT
Quinn Starling: I have found my people. This is where I belong <3
Mar 22, 2016 23:08:03 GMT
Walltur: Any games coming down the pipe? Online practice game of Cornucopia?
Apr 6, 2016 15:19:22 GMT
Vester Lombard: If you guys want we could try doing some online Galactic Debate. It would lose a bit of the spontaneous improv element when played on the forum, but maybe it could at least help figure out which cards are fun or boring.

Quinn Starling: We could schedule a "live" session and either skype or have the speaker type up their response within a certain time frame. So, speaker says they're free at 9pm. At 8:55 they're given their topic, then they have from 9:00-9:05 to type up their platform...?
