I enjoyed the write up, thatís a very cool idea for a campaign and it comes through in the narrative.

Iím curious about the multi-based figs - do you adjust the rules at all vs using single-based?

Iím looking forward to the next installment!

Thanks.
Simple, quick fix. Not necessarily official. I multi-based weak swarm types. They outnumber single models and have two wounds.

Thank you. I aim to please.

Just so ya know, the players aren't constrained to these initial Fantasy trope characters. Seeing as the Legion is fragmented and scattered along the west bank of the river, they're allowed to create new characters/select a new hero miniature, if they want anytime in the next two sessions. After that, it's 'til death do us part.'

Taking another cue from Band of Blades - to add breadth to the campaign, each player has been assigned to represent one facet of the Legion's command and logistics: Spymaster (recon/intel), LoreMaster (morale and medicine), Quartermaster (materials, forage, fodder), Marshal (troops, recruits) 

Each will lobby for a particular type of mission in the hope of increasing their supply/store. But the Legion can't begin to make their way East to a safe haven until all four values are above 50%.

Cinder King Part 2: The Rochant Monastery

The battle is over. The war has just begun.

Karlsburg is still burning. The Cinder Kingís army is just across the river, massing under the pall of corpse-stench and black smoke. Only the Tigeriaís waters separate you and the remnants of the Empireís forces from total defeat. Our heroes move out, hoping to find desperately needed supplies at the ruins of an ancient monastery.

Turns out, the ruins are not deserted as was initially reported.

This week's game session was cut short.

Apparently some young skulls full of mush were tearing around a nearby town shooting out car windows with BB guns and they shot the windows out of Other Pat's car while his wife and newborn daughter were inside the house. Classy.

Rumor has it they did their 'drive by' on a local supermarket too. Here's hoping they were caught on camera.

good grief ...  :(

anyhow - great looking skirmish board and write-ups.
just the sort of thing I was hoping to get going with ASoBaH myself - maybe some day.

Who knew that was all it would take to stop the Cinder King?



But seriously... morons.   >:(

Thank you. Yes, we were short a couple players who had to work, and then when Other Pat got the news, we called time out. 

I'll recreate the first half of the game and take pictures this weekend. With any luck, we'll finish up this Tuesday night.
