Hey folks-

On the heels of Maggie's successful Fractured Time sealed event for Peldor Joi, I have the itch for more 2E sealed. And I deeply miss the excitement of getting my latest set of draft packs from Daniel in the middle of the night (which, of course, necessitates me getting up and doing my own drafting at 3 a.m. :wink: .)

Would anyone care to join me in another ID Draft throw down? Who would be interested in a gig starting in, say, 2 weeks? Nothing high-level or super official, just a friendly local draft event online. Anyone? Anyone? :shifty:

Assuming Steve is in (currently not pre-reg'd) we have enough for sanctioning so I will get going on pack generation once we nail down HQ's. What does everyone want to try this time around? My preference is for 2-range HQ's so we are not all fighting over personnel that report to the 1-range HQ(s) but other than that do not have any strong feelings one way or another. I love the mix and match vibe of ID Draft. :cheersL:

I've had Romulans the last 2 drafts, so anything else is good for me!

NOT Romulans is a valid vote. :wink:

I am thinking we do something weird vs. a standard set. Something like Bajoran, Dominion, Maquis, and TNG. Or DS9-E, Cardassian, Ferengi, and Klingon. I dunno what I / we will ultimately settle on, but let's try to go for some unusual HQ combos (perhaps taking inspiration from the Uneasy Alliance achievements?)

I'm up for anything. I like the idea of going for the Strange Bedfellows achievements, since those would be doable in draft (need each HQ and 7 of each HQ's personnel). How about [Dom] [DS9-E] [Kli] [Maq] ? Selfishly, those are the HQs I don't have Strange Bedfellows achievements for, that also don't include a 1-span HQ.

Note: both the ES9 and Earth icons appear as the Earth icon, so I am voting ES9 here.

I am cool with these. Any objections?

For reference, the combos Mags alludes to are a pairing of Maq & Dom or ES9 & Kling. Or, you could be like me and go totally nuts and go Maq & Kling or some other strange pairing. :shifty:

You just gotta remember the draw deck minimum is 35 cards. I happened to do ES9 / Kling a few ID Draft's ago and didn't get the achievement cuz my deck was just 30 cards. :x

EDIT: I should also add that if we draw 6 players, we can do two separate pods. Sticking with the theme, a second pod could have Bajoran, Romulan, Cardassian and someone else so you could earn either a Strange Bedfellows or Uneasy Alliance achievement if you paired Baj with either of those factions.

Yeah that's a fair point. IIRC you need 20+ dilemmas as well, and I don't know what the likelihood of that is, especially with dilemmas being high draft pick card types.

But the bigger factor that'll likely keep me out of this one is I'm currently playing in the 1e Star Wars tournament and I've already committed to playing in Maggie's SSTTR release event next month.

However I have no immediate plans after that, so if there's another one of these down the line I may be game... :cheersL:

I don't have this in the system yet, and given how...um...fractious things have been with the participants in the unrated event this month, I'm uncertain that I want to run an online 1E event at this time.

So sign up for the IDIC Draft. I'm down for something more mellow.

Ok, I was planning on doing a SSTTR release event while the achievement was still active. If you don't want to run one, I'm happy to run it myself.

Let me know which way you want to go with it so I know whether or not I need to put the event in the system.

Thanks! :cheersL:

Seeing no objections, Pod A for this ID Draft will have the following HQ's: [Dom] [DS9-E] [Kli] & [Maq]. I will likely get a head start on the mission packs and will once again have The Asian Sensation randomly assign the packs to our participants. I am assuming we will have 4 players, but more are always welcome. :cheersL:
