Re: The New York City Gang Of Four

Well met!

The idea for this scenario stemmed from the center-modified Swamp Thing I built for Islandscape XIII, and the tournament's Cluster Draft format. I hope I will be forgiven for what I am doing to Browncoat's creation . . .




Teams of intrepid explorers
clash over treasure in


The Swamp Outpost


The Map. Swamp Thing, mutilated to create a Fort in the center. There are 4 Treasure Glyphs within the Fort.


[Took a few minutes to throw together a sample Map. Any similarity to Swamp Thing is purely coincidental.]












[Note: No flyers except Othkurik and Racheim. No shooters except the flyers, Elaria the Pale, and Shiori.]



The Explorers. 4 Players, 2 Teams. The Teams snake draft 6 Clusters from the [tentative] Clusters set out below, and then each Team assigns 3 Clusters to each of its Players.

100 Varkaanan Quickblades
100 Wyvern
200, 5 spaces

100 Kozuke Samurai
100 Ogre Pulverizer
200, 4 spaces

110 Tetraites
90 Chen Tang
200, 2 spaces

110 Uzog
90 Feral Troll
200, 3 spaces

120 Mogrimm
80 Prince al'Kahora
200, 2 spaces

120 Kaemon
80 Kumiko
200, 2 spaces


130 Locksley
70 Arthur of Sherwood
200, 3 spaces

130 Kozil
70 Martial La Hire
200, 2 spaces

140 Othkurik
60 Yi Feng
200, 3 spaces

140 Racheim
60 Shiori
200, 3 spaces

140 Frost Giant of Mohr
60 Elaria the Pale
200, 2 spaces

140 Werewolf Lord
60 Darrak Ambershard
200, 3 spaces

Victory Conditions. The Team with the most figures left on the Map at the end of 10 Rounds wins.

Treasure Glyphs. Treasure Glyphs are Brandar's Chests (trapped normally). Each carried Treasure Glyph counts as a figure left on the Map for the purpose of satisfying the Victory Conditions.

Re: The New York City Gang Of Four

This is quite elaborate. Are you planning to offer it to us in the future? I(K. will be away traveling for quite some time now). It seems like you've supersized the recent Islandscape we just attended.

(See that Event thread for pod drafting, and a related thread on it for discussion of same).

Not so elaborate, except that the Clusters are pre-made. As for supersizing the recent Islandscape we just attended . . .

"The idea for this scenario stemmed from the center-modified Swamp Thing I built for Islandscape XIII, and the tournament's Cluster Draft format."

I don't know what you're talking about.


P.S.: Quite pleased with how the Clusters turned out, thematically and practically.

Re: The New York City Gang Of Four

K.,

I'm just saying you did a lot of work to prepare a multiplayer draft scenario. Nice going!

But we'll have to wait months for you to get it to the table here, since you'll be away. I'll look forward to it.

  • Brooch of Shielding (Disengage): This figure is never attacked when leaving an engagement. (Wave 12)
  • Giant Hunter Stone (+1 VS large or huge): This figure rolls an additional die when attacking or defending against large or huge figures. (Wave 13)
  • Heroic Rune (Attack +1): This figure adds 1 additional attack die when making a normal attack. (BftU)
  • Talisman of Defense (Defense +1): This figure adds 1 additional defense die when defending. (BftU)
Each carried Treasure Glyph counts as a figure left on the Map for the purpose of satisfying the Victory Conditions.

Re: The New York City Gang Of Four



Well met!

Major revisions. Revised the Clusters earlier to include Locksley, who, along with Arthur of Sherwood and Darrak Ambershard, will have the opportunity to exercise his Treasure Glyph-related Special Powers on Dignan's Relic, which already had 4 Treasure Glyphs (albeit Brandar's Chests, which I replaced with the Treasure Glyphs listed), replacing the abomination which was the previous map.

The earlier drafts of the Clusters had almost no ranged characters, and the draft was pretty straightforward. This version has Racheim, two Masters of the Hunt, the aforementioned Locksley, Kaemon Awa, Elaria the Pale, and Shiori, which, along with the new Map (including the useable Treasure Glyphs), and a few other figure changes, making the drafting process (and the resulting play) much more challenging IMHO.

P.S.: Could use a better title . . .

Re: The New York City Gang Of Four

We've changed to playing Star Trek Ascendancy on Saturday. The Vulcan and Andorian expansions were recently announced but not until October. Bummer, but at least they've stated a date publically, after a long, long wait for them.

Re: The New York City Gang Of Four

September has now proved impossible to schedule, but we're looking forward to K.'s new scenario in October.

Well met!

Major revisions to scenario Relics of Power (see blog post of same name). We have room, assuming all members of the Gang are available, for two additional Players.
