Dropped by here to see if there was anything new. I've read through the entire thread two or three times so far. I realize that there must have been an intention to play games in this setting using Triumph & Tragedy, because of the location of this thread. But I'm wondering, Hammers, whether or not you've considered using Pulp Alley? Those rules seem perfect for a series of small scenarios set in your Arumbaya world.

Ah, yes, well...

This project did not start as a wish to create a secondary world, I had a very specific idea on how to run naval rules using T&T (because I very much like those rules) for the figure combat resolution. This thread would probably be at how just as well in some other board but I sneakily placed it here to get some free advice from the Driscoles and Westfalia Chris. :)


The whole project ran aground, so to speak, because of elephantiasis. Sure, most of the miniatures are painted (probably more than I need), the boats are launched but the gaming matt is immense and quite difficult to find anywhere to test play and even store. There is a lot of terrain needed, a lot of it is prepped and hogging more shelf space in the garage than what my wife is happy with.

Still, it has been a labor of love and I still nurture a hope I will get back to Arumbaya one day. As you can see I still add an odd adventurer or animal to the collection as I find and paint something I think belongs to it.

As for Pulp Alley, sure, for what I've seen they could work for some minor a action in the Paquadorian jungle, but, again, the whole raison d'etre for this project is to see some piratey river boat action along the Arumbaya.

This is an amazing thread! So much to inspire my own project, thanks for sharing your work... I am glad this resurfaced. I hope you get your Piratey River Adventure (TM) some time soon.

Only about 4 months to go before the 10th anniversary of the start of this thread!

Wow, that is high praise, and as most such not true. But thank you!

I agree. I followed this avidly while it was under construction and while not having those same modelling skills or indeed a game to use the constructs in, I was very tempted to build it. o_o

Do it! But buy a hangar to house it in first.  ;)

Re: Chicken Race on the Arumbaya, Resplendent Quetzal

The Arumbayan Resplendent Quetzal, pharomachrus mocinno arumbayensis, perched atop a mayan stone head, triggering huge interest among both ornithologists and archeologists in the expedition.


I found this piece in the Frostgrave catalog and felt I just had to add it to the CRotA project at some point.

Nice! I was just looking at that very piece on the North Star site today. I thought 'that's very nice, pity I have no use for it.'

Good to see that you have found something to do with it. You've done a smashing job there.

And a fascinating duckie it is too. :)
Duckie ; synonymous to all birds.
