Ha I’ve finally got my third scenario out. Like before I will reference my custom made teams (this one featuring Empire and my first group The Hunted) but then put in the rules for using official units. Note this scenario has an new equipment card, but again I also included options to use offical cards instead. Oh and like always I hope to get some feedback as to what I might be missing or doing wrong or actual playtest. Title:
Dark HeritagePlot:Celeste’s only clue to her father’s whereabouts is her famous auntie’s home, but her dim memories of it couldn’t prepare her for ruins that lay in its place. Celeste can only hope their newly met companions will stand by them. And unseen by all Saimain watches intensely as she can only hope they survive the dark secrets that lay await…
Duncan Reid spies the ruins from the crest of a hill. Checking the notes he confirms the location of the late master puppet maker Phillipa Lemarchand workshop. After tethering the horses Caska looks out too as even she has heard of Phillipa and her marionettes so finely crafted that they seem to come to alive in the hands of expert, much too alive according to some...Forces:The Hunted
forces may include other wanderers in their force up to a total of level 250.The Hand of the Empress
forces may also include Empire units with one slot for a neutral wanderer units in their forces up to a total of level 250.Battle Field:
48" X 48" or 48” X 36”
Set up the ruin workshop/mansion in the center of the map as shown. Place 7 markers in the ruins as shown; these markers can be chest, crates, barrels or some other enclosed item.
Up to 4 more pieces of abrupt terrain may be placed on the map, two by each player.
All terrain pieces must be at least 6" from any part of the ruin workshop.Deployment:
Players may start from either corner no more then 4” from the corner. Advance Deployment & Infiltration may be used but can’t used to place markers any closer to the mansion then 8”.Special Rules:
To search the ruins a unit must be touching a marker and perform a Seek check. A unit may not make a Seek check at a marker if its is in hand to hand combat. Even if the unit has a special ability to automatically succeed in a Seek check roll the following table.Search Ruins
10 find 10 lvls
9 find 7 lvls
8 find 5 lvls
7-4 find 3 lvls
3 unit gains lvl 2 Seal Effect 17
2 unit gains lvl 3 Paralyzed Effect 18
1 unit dies & is removed from the game Effect 19
Once you gained 20 or more levels your next successful search of 8 or better will reveal Jiří. One of your units not in melee combat must to trade in 20 lvls (gained from your whole party) and retire any advantage card the unit has on them to equip Jiří on the unit.Duration:
Until victory.Victory Conditions:
Carry Jiří off the road closest to your deployment corner.Alternate Setup:
Replace The Hunted
with any other team and follow the same build rules.
Replace the The Hand of the Empress
with any other pure Organization (Church, Empire, Samael, Azur Alliance, Wissenchaft, Black Sun, Tol Rauko, or a strict Wanderer force) with the same build rules except use wanderers if the organization doesn't have enough released characters.
Replace Jiří with Supernatural Weapon and Supernatural Shield and consider one item for equipping units.
Note there is a reason why your not spending any actions to make the free attack when you have Jiří (which by the way is the name of a famous Czech puptieer). Still its rather expensive little toy, but if you have your enemy on the ropes then this could easily be the knockout blow. Anyhoo the art work is an interesting little piece I found Dying Hopes Last Wishes by Iribel
Also please take a look at The Hunted
as both Celeste Noble, Mihael, and their team card have some major changes. This is to hopefully better reflect my better understanding of the game and make the team more playable. Thought I should add a link to The Hand of the Empress
, its the third post down. Too bad these boards don't allow you to separate to a single post.
Thanks and if anyone has any questions, comments, or suggestions feel free to ask.
PS again I took some of my anime/scifi/horror fanboy fantasies and twisted them into this Scenario. Lets just say names and ideas are more then just made up.
