Ken Con 3.0

This year at Kencon I've decided to run a draft format. The way it works is each player will roll for a random 600 point pod and keep that pod for the whole tournament. Each game the players will pool their 600 point pods into one 1200 point pod. The players will then draft a 400 point army in a 1-2-2-2-2.... order. There will be a mix of newer players and veteran players alike. There was some debate on whether to roll a new 600 point pod every round, similar to what happened at Kencon 2.0 but the thought was that the longer a player plays with his specific 600 point pod, the more comfortable they will become with at least half of the pod in each game.

Anyway, what I would like feedback on from you guys is on the 600 point pods themselves. Below are the 12 pods I'm anticipating using. I tried to make synergy fairly obvious in each pod (as well as counters), and offer some differing branching options in each pod as well. I also wanted there to be some synergies between other pods as well. Please take a look and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

(P.S. Do note the Wyvern and Chainfighters synergy with Arkmer and the Nakitas)

Re: Ken Con 3.0

Looks like fun. Nice list of figures. I like the idea in general to level the playing field for variety of skill players.

Really the only thing I don't like is the un-mind-linked elf wizards in that pod. Arkmer is fine, but the others are kind of trap picks without Ulginesh. You can replace with Sonlen Syvarris or even Morsbane, who can be a fun counter draft piece.

Re: Ken Con 3.0

When are you running KenCon?

What GenCon taught me was to assume only one skull on three dice!

Re: Ken Con 3.0

Vegie, that is a good point. I do think Jdawn could still be worth it, even if you only grab 2 other wizards. Chardris I could see getting rid of.

Re: Ken Con 3.0

One small army change, I did take out Chardris for Brandis Skyhunter.
I assigned and let all the players know their draft pools last week so that they have 2 weeks to flesh out their strategies, etc.

I'm interested to see if everything flows as well as I think it will. I'm also interested to see how well the more rookie players do. I'm hoping the 2 weeks notice for their pools will help speed up the drafting process. The players also have knowledge of all the pools so they could theoretically look up everything and even know all synergies and cross counters between pools etc ahead of time, but I think that's a bit ambitious.

After thinking too hard about everything, I think I should have dropped the wyrmlings in the 2 armies or added more in the others. Overall I think that's the only thing I would have changed as of right now. I'll let you know my thoughts after the event to see if I'd make more changes.
