Can we assimilate pie? It would make being a drone so much more comfortable...

From the Rules tab:

All teams have to be named exactly after this scheme:
[Division or league] Invasion Cube [serial number]

Examples:
Ranked Invasion Cube 003
Blackbox Invasion Cube 016
League Invasion Cube 001
O[L]C Invasion Cube 007

For the serial number, simply enter 001, 002 etc. until you have found the next number that is available. Note: If you're unsure about the team name, contact Rabe. Incorrectly named teams won't be accepted into the group!

Your starting roster must include:
12 Marauders
5 Re-Rolls
1 Apothecary
0 Fan Factor

Cheerleaders and Assistant Coaches may never be hired.
Renegades and Big Guys can only be acquired through assimilation (see below).

Players are simply named "[player number] of [intended maximum team size]", for example "Three of Sixteen" (if you want to have the option of a full roster) or "Eight of Thirteen" (if you're sure you'll never go beyond 13 players).

As for choosing skills:

If a player improves, his development is determined by the roll and the lists:

On a normal roll, he/she has to learn the first skill from the top of the list that is available to him/her.

On a double, he/she has to learn the first skill from the top of the list that is available to him/her on doubles only. If no such skill is available, the roll is treated like a normal roll.

The skills Leader and Pro can never be learned.
The skills Disturbing Presence, Thick Skull, Foul Appearance and Stand Firm represent typical Borg characteristics and are therefor on the list right from the start.

All stat upgrades have to be taken, unless a player cannot improve that stat anymore or it has lost value due to injury. In that case, 5+5 and 6+6 are treated as doubles, 4+6 and 5+6 are treated as normals. +AV will be taken over +MA (speed is not really a Borg thing). If AV has been taken twice or the AV value has been reduced due to injury though, +MA has to be taken (unless it already has been taken twice or reduced due to injury).

But remind how skills are learnt?
Opponent has to be killed or just permed? And choose one of the skills for the list?

For the collective to learn, the opponent has to be killed.
Players learn skills in a specific order from the collective depending on which skills are most prevalent in the corpses collected by the collective.

You pick whichever skill is highest on the list that your player doesn't have yet. In other words, just go from the top then work down until you hit a skill your player doesn't have!

And make sure to inform the group when you kill a player so their skills can be added to the list totals and the list can be refreshed.

Secret Invasion Cube 001 reporting fruitful encounter with sub-species known as Tilean. Encounter was not only a decisive victory but the cube was able to harvest two subjects ideal for assimilation. The second subject possessed a skill heretofore unassimilated known as Kick. The ability has been added to the hive mind data base.

Information on the assimilated subjects found below.

Scouring the system for resources, SL Cube 001 dispatched a reconnaissance team to an isolated and apparently uninhabitable planet. The drones were attacked by a previously unencountered foe. The offensive was repelled and the drones were victorious.

Unfortunately, they were unable to assimilate any specimens for study. While scanners had shown a lifeless planet these creatures acted autonomously. It must be considered life but not as we know it. Translated ancient writings refer to them as Dust Goblins.

Full report being dispatched to hive mind.

SL Cube 001 reporting an encounter with an as of yet unreported confederation self-titled as Numas. The encounter resulted in victory at the cost to two drones. Drones have been replaced with others from the depository.

Crew was able to return with the corpses of two enemy crew members. These crew are incompatible for assimilation however the skill Thick Skull was reinforced in the hive mind as was the skill block.

Full report on the encounter is found here. Note that the larger creature was killed by a spectator with a rock and thus not eligible for assimilation.

Secret Invasion Cube 001 continues exploration of unknown sector and encounters a species prime for immediate assimilation. The encounter was a success as a drone was recovered which will immediately be put to use.

The recovered material was of an expendable crew member who was caught alone. Despite 8 fouls, and one third more blocks than the opposition, said crew member was the only one available for assimilation.

Subject assimilated can be found here.

Welcome Java. Blackbox Cube 015 has been activated as part of the fleet.

Happy hunting and may your assimilations be many.

Your drones are likely to be Block/Thick Skull/Frenzy/ Guard for a while. It takes a bit to get used to the play style.

Medbay resources deemed mission critical and left on standby at time of medfailure.
Eleven of Sixteen acquired Block capability.
Encounter evaluated as overall failure.

Enquiry: how does the Cube replace Three of Sixteen once enough resources have been gathered?

Enquiry: how does the Cube acquire a unit more suitable to handle the oval artifacts?
