SAGA Age of Magic - Battle Report
« on: September 21, 2020, 09:41:52 AM »
After getting my new little room and table set up I played a game of solo SAGA AoM. This time I opted for High Elves using the Great Kingdoms battleboard and The Undead lead by The Necromancer. Once again it was a great game and I'm really impressed by the way Age of Magic lends itself to a very narrative game. The gme turned out a bit different to what I expected but it worked out well.

Please have a read on my blog at: http://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2020/09/the-necromancer-comes-forth.html







Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.

A great looking battle, I especially like those undead cavalry with the red tunics!

Nice report, great looking table and minis!

Can you talk a bit about your process for playing solo games? I keep mucking about with the idea, but I'm never quite able to pick a system. You say Saga lends a bit of a narrative aspect to the game - is that due to the unpredictable nature of the Saga dice + abilities?

Thank you. They are from FireForge.

Thanks. My process is that I just play the game. I try to play each side to their best capacity depending on the situation. I do this for various games. Some games work for solo play and some games don't. I don't have any preference for which side will win. All the figures are my own and I want to see all of them win.

As far as "narrative" goes, I start playing the game and I take photo's. I start to think what I'll write to go with the photo and the situation. Sometimes unexpected things happen and I weave that into the narrative (like the elf queen casting a powerful spell in the above game). Also, if the good guys win I'll do the write up as a great victory over evil and if the bad guys win I'll do the write up as a grim tragedy. How the game payed out and the photo's I take will tell the story.
