NorCal ADAT (All Dungeon All the Time) Tourney: APRIL 14

Folks, our next Bay Area / Northern California tournament is ON!

Saturday, April 14th. At Ronin Games, in Castro Valley.
Start at 11am.


THEME
Theme will be ADAT: All Dungeon, All the Time.

I.e., we'll be playing on a bunch of dungeon maps I like, including the three winning maps from The 1x BftU Challenge, which was created with this tourney in mind. Other maps will include a single expansion (TJ, VW, TT, RttFF, or FotA).

So the common denominator is the BftU set. Dungeon and Shadow, baby, Dungeon and Shadow.

Who knows. Maybe the Drow and Mika will finally feature in a winning tourney army.

MAPS
If you can help out and provide one of these, please holler. They're all small and easy.

The glyph pool (for maps which don't specify particular glyphs) will be: Wannok, Valda, Dagmar, Kelda, and Lodin. If a map you're providing features random gylphs, please bring those five as the pool.
Spoiler Alert!


PROHIBITED UNITS
Four units are utterly banned: no Raelins (both versions), no Rats (Deathreavers), and no Zelrig. Mainly because we'll be playing on tight, compressed maps. But I hate Raelin and Rats anyway. Heck, I'd prohibit them even without the map excuse.

Also, no Marvel or C3G. All SoV and C3V units released before March 9, however, are fine, even encouraged. (That includes Tyrian, the Zombie Hulk, and the Zettian Infantry among the SoV; and all the C3V units of Wave 14.)


ARMY SIZE
720 points
standard 24-hex starting zones

With huge armies on tight, compressed maps, and no Raelin, Rats, or Zelrig, this should be pretty interesting.
Remember though folks: Huge figures do not get the Shadow defensive bonus. Large ones do, but not Huge ones. Plan accordingly.

Join the competitive 720-point army discussion.


FORMAT
Five rounds, Swiss-style tournament. Winner to be decided by win/loss record, with ties broken first by SoS (strength of schedule), followed by points killed.


PRIZE
Prize will be NIB Shades & Orcs. Currently goes for about $60 - $65 on eBay, so hopefully will prove a good lure. Includes the Shades of Bleakewoode (a fun but not very competitive unit). But more notably, also includes the Heavy Gruts, one of the best melee squads out there. (And unlike many common squads, they're worth owning/fielding even if you only have one of them, since they fit seamlessly into a Blade Grut army.)


BRING
Bring the standard stuff: Order Markers, Wound Markers, and Dice. Plus a pen/pencil. And, of course, your 720-point army.
Also, since there is no registration fee for this tourney, bring that saved money and spend it on stuff/food/drink at Ronin Games. It's nice of them to host us, and it takes a lot of money to keep a game store running. So help make sure they're still open when our next tourney comes around.

Re: NORCAL / BAY AREA tourney in April: what date?

Saturday. Nothing more specific than that yet.

TL;DR: I put a lot of thought into my posts. Please read them before responding, even if they seem long. I try to make my posts useful and worth the time.

Re: NORCAL / BAY AREA tourney in April: what date?

Are you still planning Legacy, or is straight Dungeon the new theme?

I'm 100% flexible regarding the date.

I love Legacy. But also am committed to straight Dungeon, thanks to the 1x BftU Challenge. And think combining them would be too much. So.... no Legacy, all Dungeon!

Bring out your Drow, your Othkurik, your Mika Connour. And see how they fare against more standard fare. (heh heh)

Are all the maps going to be 1xBftU or are 2x or 3x OK?

Any Saturday or Sunday is OK by me, BTW.

Not sure yet, Ziggy. I can see several options:

(1) Every map is a simple 1x BftU. (would be very unified set of maps, tight, fast-playing)

(2) Every map uses only BftU, no expansions; but some might use 2 sets instead of being limited to only 1 set. (i.e., 2x BftU) (would allow some larger maps while still featuring nothing but terrain in the dungeon set)

(3) Every map uses 1x BftU and not more than 1; but some might use a single expansion as well. (e.g., 1x BftU and 1x VW/TT/TJ/RttFF/FotA) (would allow slightly larger maps and more variety)


The problem witih #2 and #3 is finding appropriate maps. We have LOTS of great options for #1, thanks to The 1x BftU Challenge contest. But maps using a single dungeon set and a single expansion seem really rare. I've created Ice Thistle and Shangri-La along those lines, but don't know of others....

Re: NORCAL / BAY AREA tourney in April: what date?

And a follow up to Z's question-will there be expansions used in some of the maps, or will all maps be made out of only Dungeon sets?

Edit: 'd. I guess I'll go look around and see what's available for each option. I know GameBear's Coastal Caverns fits #3. Not sure about the rest.

Thanks Killo. You da man.

Adore GameBear. That said.... Coastal Caverns is asymmetrical, isn't it?

Re: NORCAL / BAY AREA tourney in April: what date?

1x BftU
Spoiler Alert!

2x BftU (5 so far)
Spoiler Alert!

1x BftU + 1x expansion (9 so far)
Spoiler Alert!



Sooo, except for option #1 there's not a whole lot floating around. If it's opened up to include 2x Bftu + 1x expansion then we'll have a whole lot more to choose from.

Re: NORCAL / BAY AREA tourney in April: what date?

Something that I realized will be a limiting factor in map selection is the number of BftU's we'll have available. I have two.
