It has been quite while since I posted here, but yesterday I purchased Sellswords and Spellslingers from Ganesha Games.



I have already constructed my first party, and expect to have my first solo run of the rules within the next week (I just need to find the minis I had in mind when putting the characters together).
Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!

Found them!



Block-painted many years ago with enamels, they need an overhaul, but I am going to start playing ASAP, anyway!

Printed the various cards for S&S today - unfortunately, I did not have enough laminating pouches for all of the pages, so another delay (I had most of the afternoon/evening to myself, so I had hoped to get more done).

Cards finally done. I have set my hopes high for a game somewhen soon after this weekend.

Got gaming stuff from the garage attic into the living room; expecting to play a scenario tomorrow (if all goes to plan)!

I just got my copy a couple of days ago. Looking forward to read your play through.

My wife had a change of plans in mind for me - I shall have to pick up my daughter before noon (15 km south of here) to drive her to the prosthetist (20 km north of here) to try out some gizmo to stabilize her knee, until it can be surgically mended, and then to the physio-therapist (8 km north of here) for rehab training of her other knee, that had surgery about 5 months ago - so I don't think the game will happen tomorrow, after all (but Wednesday should be a new possibility). Until this evening, my understanding was that she would pick up Anna, but, well...

Real life problems are a b**ch at the moment.

So, finally got a game played today - am off work due to some respiratory infection (off to have my lungs x-rayed tomorrow).

I am writing a very meticulous AAR to help me memorizing the mechanics, so only Turn 1 has been covered, yet, but I should be able to get a bit more done tomorrow (lots of pics to edit, though).

The AAR is posted on my blog, but here is a couple of pics:

I like the AAR, you have done a great job showing how the game works with the added pictures of the dice and cards.  I will look forward to the other reports. 
You are right in thinking a rogue character is rather limited. I am trying to work out a way of having characters being able to sneak undetected and ambush the enemy.  At the moment the game is really focused on killing masses of monsters.

As my youngest daughter (Lea, just turned 12) seems interested in playiing some SS&SS with me, I have set about creating a party for her.



I expect that we shall flesh out the profiles somewhen this weekend - more about that at a later time!

Thank you!

Maybe invent a 'Sneak' trait based on Stealth (you cannot have Sneak without Stealth), the higher level, the closer a Monster needs to come to spot the character. And then an 'Ambush' trait, based on Sneak, the higher the level, the more you reduce a monsters DL when charging from hidden.

Argonor, that is exactly what I have been trying.  It is how it all works in the context of the cards/enemy activations.  I will PM you with my thoughts so far.  There are quite a lot of changes to fit a Silmarillion feel.

As you may have guessed from some of the minis used in the scenario, I am a huge fan of Tolkien's works, and also pretty content with (most of) the aesthetics of the Jackson interpretations, so anything conjuring up a Middle-Earth vibe in my games is very welcome. I shall have a look at your thoughts during this weekend!

So, in between fits of coughing, going to the hospital in Svendborg to have an x-ray, and cleaning/assembling a few minis, I also managed to edit more photos from yesterday's game.

This evening, I wrote up Turn 2 of the AAR, and the full turn can be found on the blog, but here is a couple of pics:





I hope to be able to write the next part tomorrow, but as it is Friday, and Friday evening is Family Time, often in front of the telly with some snacks and a movie, or some lame entertainment like X-Factor (which is, the Powers be praised, finished for this time), I may find it difficult to find the time.

Apologies for my bad manners earlier.  I flicked off the reply quickly before work and ignored your comment about poor health.
I hope you are starting to feel better and the X ray is all OK. 
It's great that you are gaming with your daughter.  I have been unable to interest any of my family in gaming - they might have been put off by me starting with Napoleonics.
