In a possessed warband, the leader has died. With only having two possessed heroes as candidates for leader, are they able to be the leader?

Can a new Magister be bought?

Options/House Rules?

Sorry, no new Magister. The next highest Hero's LD becomes the Leader and gains the ability to get a spell on the next advancement.

Yeah, my son and I just played our first game in well over a year. Pit Fighters versus Possessed. Neither one of us wanted to voluntary rout, so we went the distance. In the end, it was two Possessed and a Beastman versus a single Pit Fighter Henchman. Then he rolled the dice and failed the Leadership test and routed. The end results:

Pit Fighters:
Dwarf Troll Slayer - DEAD
Pursuer Henchman - DEAD
Pit King - Sold to Pits (BLASPHEMY) - and lucky first round hits went to the opponent with third attack hitting in first round for Crit, and Pit King finding himself waking up on side of road, naked, but HARDENED. Never had a chance to strike in the Pit Fight...
Pursuer - +1 INITIATIVE

Possessed:
Magister - DEAD
Darksoul 1 - DEAD
Darksoul 2 - DEAD
Possessed 1 - Became the new leader, learned a new spell already with his kills in the battle... SCARY!!!
Possessed 2 - +1 STRENGTH

What I see is that you have two monstrous beast alive while he have his leader (unequipped) and a henchmen with a bad upgrade.

If I was him I would retire and build a new warband....

For you, I'm not sure. You do lose much but those possessed gonna rocks soon...

A possessed cannot have academic skills.

So he may have some spells, but no Hunch, no Sorcery, no arcane lore etc.
You have to decide, if you want more spells or skills like Resilent or Mighty Blow or Step Aside etc..

I think a possessed which can cast is not much more dangerous than a Possessed warband with a caster with academic skills.

If you are playing in Mordheim proper then once you get a few rabbit's feet and some Tarot cards you will be able to get the alchemist's notebook. That will allow the Possessed to use Academic skills.

You need more heroes and with the magister dead you need to wait for 2 LGT or you have to win. I think mostly your Possessed will be near maximum experience until he get the Alchemists notebook.

So pesimistic! He will not get max level xp - he will be dead *way* before then :p.

Seriously though, I think you are forgetting that the notebook is only five 2s, not six. That means you need a minimum of 4 heroes and a win. A couple of rabbit's feet for some rerolls and a few tarot cards and you are sorted.

Obviously you wouldn't waste rerolls going for it if you roll lots of high numbers, but 3 or less is Tarotable to the required 2 so you are in a win/win situation. If you roll high you are going to get lots of treasure. If you roll low then you have a good chance of Taroting the result to something tasty like the Alchemst Notebook.

e.g. say you roll 62534 and have 3 rerolls and 3 Tarot cards online. You would start by rerolling the 4 and if you got 1, 2, or 3 then you would start going for the book and if you got 4, 5, or 6 then reroll for more loot.
