First game in a 16th century (Sengoku period) campaign
« on: October 31, 2016, 08:00:12 PM »
Last Saturday we played the first game of a 16th century Japanese campaign at the "24 heures du jeu" games festival (in Theix-Noyalo, near Vannes, Brittany). Ruleset was an adaptation of Argad (which is a mix of miniature skirmish game and role-playing game).





More pictures here (text in French):

There were 4 players (there will be more taking part in the campaign) and the game organizer had imagined a very detailed background for each player's family... In this first game the players began to get involved in the historical and cultural context (which most of them, including myself, didn't know much)...

I couldn't even watch all that happened elsewhere as I was too busy preventing two or three attempts of assassination against the young heir of my family in the inn where we had halted on our way to an important diplomatic meeting. It seems that at the same moment, the local lord was receiving two foreign barbarians inside the walls of his garden, and they brought him secret and very noisy weapons... All players had different things to do and we still don't understand what everyone did (the AAR is not complete because many things must remain secret for future games)...

Looks like the start of a fun series of games.

Had a quick look at the blog lots of interesting stuff, sorry my French is not good enough to follow it and Google does not translate wargames information very well.

Keep us posted how this progresses

Looks rather like showing a punch-up on a football field in 1944 and calling it a D-Day campaign.
The laws of probability do not apply to my dice in wargames or to my finesses in bridge.

And off-table diplomacy between games, which has already begun. :)

 ::) Ye-es I understand what you mean.

It was the first game of a "campaign" in RPG terms, whatever the size of the battlefields : "In role-playing games, a campaign is a continuing storyline or set of adventures, typically involving the same characters." (Wikipedia)

No it doesn't.  It looks great and to nit pick on a limited understanding of the meaning of a single word is really uncalled for.

It looks like an insulting degradation of a period of intense military activity to a chop-suey action picture, and when I need a lesson in philology or etiquette, I shan't come to a hobby nerd blog and ask a troll to provide it.

Thanks for sharing your project. :)
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Excellent buildings you have there, and this looks like the start of a fun game.  Feuding samurai is a great premise for some jolly good action.  Please keep us informed of how things pan out.   :)
