Week One--The City of Thieves

Warbands
Andrew--Cathayan looking Reiklanders
Bob--Tomb Guardians (Khemri website)
Chad--Possessed
Chris--Witch Hunters
Jim L--Undead
Jim S--Guhtani (Relics of the Crusades)

Witch Hunters (from Araby)


Down on the Docks: Smugglers


Undead approach the docks...


The Possessed attacks the Witch Hunters.


A fight on the docks.


Over the course of the evening we fought maybe six battles. Two Down at the Docks (both won by Chris). The Witch Hunters discover Drenok Johansen crucified outside the city. He is rescued by the Witch Hunters and promises to reward them with service.
One The Heist... Jim L loses a vampire to Al Bobo of the Ghutani. The Undead disband.
Two The Yeggmen. Both lost by Cathayans, once as the attacker and once as defender. Undead won one. The Undead buy a cheap Arabian Steed,which promptly collapses and dies... Ghutani won the other. Al Bobo becomes a hero.
One Last Orders. Tomb Guardians versus Possessed... Possessed win.

With just the right amount of flavorful and playable scenery your group pulled off what looks like a very fun evening, with the possible exception for Jim L. Six games in one evening is impressive considering one solo game takes me about the same amount of time, being the tortoise in the race and all. Keep having fun guys, and maybe gang up on Chris when you get the chance before the crucified guy gives them “The Favor” which in my limited experience usually results in miracles.

Thanks gentlemen.  Mr L's game nights sound worse than they are, though they sound like teeth being pulled...

Miracles have already occurred.
-The Captain shot four smugglers out of action with 2 shots  Suspect
--The cargo captured by Witch Hunters included THREE elven cloaks  Suspect  Suspect

Week 2--The Pressganging Continues

Warbands
Andrew--Cathayan looking Reiklanders
Bob--Tomb Guardians (Khemri website)
Chad--Possessed
Chris--Witch Hunters
Jim L--Undead
Jim S--Guhtani (Relics of the Crusades)
Kevin--Marienburgers

But first more images of last weeks' games:

The Undead defend against larcenous Cathayans


A ghoul takes the Cathayan Captain out of action.


Week Two games
Pressgang!
An angry drunk takes a ghoul and a dreg down.  He gets the last ghoul before being overwhelmed by the Possessed.


The mean Possessed eliminates the necromancer


A drunk is pressed!


Dreg Manfred tries to pressgang a drunk by himself.


Dreg Manfred fails!


At the end of the game Dreg Manfred died of his wounds.  Killed by a drunk!  In desperation the necromancer uses the Paw to re-animate the dead vampire from game one.  Something was wrong with the invocation though, as a minor Djinn possessed the body of the vampire instead...

The Undead captured the most drunks, but fled with numerous heroes dead or wounded.
____________________________________________________________________________________
Last Orders
A battle of teetotalers

Hordes of Witch Hunters occupy the attic of the Blow Hole.  Only Mir Sher and a lowly penitent of the One (Ghutani flagellant) stand in their way.  Drenok Johansen begins his service to the Witch Hunters by attacking Mir Sher.


On the second level the Ghutani swamp the outnumbered Witch Hunters


Mir Sher survives against the odds!

More to come...

Another Pressgang
The Undead race with the Witch Hunters for drunken victims

Undead inside a building...


Witch Hunters gone native


Confrontation


Stretch the ghoul is down!


The Undead mob Drenok Johansen and some friends (who might be flagellants).


The friends don't last.


Only Drenok...


Drenok finally fell before LOTS of attacks. Not sure who won this blood bath although Chris seemed unconcerned about casualties...
____________________________________________________________________________________
Rock the Boat
A dockside Defend the Find

The Ghutani run into the Possessed.
A brethren snipes. Too well.


The Ghutani march to war.


The Ghutani lost both of their original flagellants. The Possessed foolishly thought that the Ghutani would fight on after Al Bobo was stunned and left the 'find' to reinforce their killers. Ah well.
____________________________________________________________________________________
Another Down on the Docks
The Merianburgers hold off the Tomb Guardians and Cathayans for a bit anyway...
Its been a dry year...or seas of sand...


Marienburgers seek out their attackers. This doesn't go well.


The Mummies take forever to walk down to the docks.


The Marienburgers fled first. Then the Tomb Guardians failed a rout test just before they could charge for the first time...

The Cathayans gain much cargo (since the other warbands got none!)

Once again great pics and captions, I like the random happenings of the watch, but I have to say i’m a fan of the giant crab. How did it come into being, and furthermore, what about a hint to its stats? In other words I love the fluff, now I’m interested in the crunch. The pincer could/should have it’s own backstory.

The Crab is an Itsy Bitsy Spider type encounter from the Sartosa setting.  His stats come from the old General's compendium I think.

I don't have them with me. I think his stats flip S and T versus the Spider from the Random Happenings. His claw attacks give +1 to injury roll.

Protect the Prince
The foreign devils attempt to sneak a Prince through the Merchant's Quarter.

The Marienburgers hide behind buildings.


The Ghutani rush into the buildings to avoid the heavy crowds (and a Tilean Marksman).


The Marienburgers flee, leaving their Prince to the Ghutani's mercy. Some bad things happen to Marienburger heroes. Deep Wounds and such.
____________________________________________________________________________________
Another Down on the Docks
The Harbor Watch foil the Undead plans again. Marienburgers watch.


The Undead sulk about.


The watch arrive in their launch. Smugglers and Undead are caught red handed.


The battle for the ship




Undead start taking cargo


The Undead fail a rout test before they can drag all the cargo away. A ghoul dies.

Still more adventures to come...

Thanks Al.

A Skirmish in the Thieves Quarter
The Ghutani versus the Possessed

A cute little monkey is chopped to pieces by cruel cultists. It stole a sword from the mutant...


The Ghutani try to fort up, but the Possessed are too fast.


The second wave of mutants, Possessed and dark souls crash into the wall of Al Bobo.


The Possessed are going to rout. Al Bobo survives.


Chad's new Possessed was cut down by Al Bobo and killed by the Holy Man (need to name him). A great victory for the Faithful.
____________________________________________________________________________________
Last Orders in the Merchants' Quarter
The Cathayans and Witch Hunters clash in the Blow Hole

The Witch Hunters are out numbered in the attic




And outnumbered on the main floor...eventually




A big brawl on the second level






A victorious Witch Hunter clears the main room.


The Witch Hunters somehow win. Perhaps because the warbands were taking rout tests (which I am not sure is necessary in the scenario). Either way the Cathayans still had 9 standing to 4 or so Witch Hunters. No one is reported killed.

The Witch Hunters find a Hochland Long Rifle with their Lamp of the Djinn.

The next battles will take place in the Great Desert on the way to the Oasis of One Thousand and One Camels...

Week 4--The Oasis of a Thousand and One Camels

The first stage of the journey to Khemri was undertaken three weeks ago.  My computer problems have conspired with overtime to make little time for keeping the campaign diary.  Many images exist of desperate battles though...

Warbands
Andrew--Cathayan looking Reiklanders
Bob--Tomb Guardians (original version)
Chad--Possessed
Chris--Witch Hunters
Jim L--Undead
Jim S--Guhtani (Relics of the Crusades)
Kevin--Marienburgers

Capture the Oasis
The Witch Hunters versus the Guardians



The Undead will capture the oasis.  No caravans will trade with them though.
The Witch Hunters somehow win back to Al-Haikk.

The Signpost
Ghutani thwarted by Cathayans






Cathayans have the signpost.




A pivotal skirmish on the flank.  The Rider is gone, but his comrades attack the Faithful.


Despite the defeat of the Rider, the Ghutani flee from the counterattack.  Al Bobo II is killed.

The Caravan
Marienburgers versus the Undead

The ambush




The Undead spring their ambush from behind the only timber frame building in the Great Arabyan Desert.




Lenny the Lazar returns!


The Undead defeat the caravan guards.
____________________________________________________________________________________
Al Bobo was killed fighting the Cathayans in a caravan ambush.  (Five of the attackers were OoA including three heroes, but only Al Bobo fell on the side of the Faithful...)  The Faithful made much gold from the victory, but were sad nonetheless.  His successor Al Bobo II was killed in the next fight (a defeat).

Lenny the Lazar II was killed by Marienburgers.  The Undead were victorious, but naturally saddened by the death of Lenny.

The saga will continue... We are up to week seven or eight now.

The length of time your group has been playing tells me how much fun they must be having. I enjoy following their exploits. I especially like the detailed scenery on the indoor battles and the fact that your group never seems to run out of scenery pieces.

Week Five--Rock da Kasbah
We return to Al Haikk.

Warbands
Andrew--Cathayan looking Reiklanders
Bob--Tomb Guardians (original version)
Chad--Possessed
Chris--Witch Hunters
Jim L--Undead
Jim S--Guhtani (Relics of the Crusades)
Kevin--Marienburgers

Undead and Possessed in the Thieves Quarter

Its been awhile since these games happened, so time has swallowed the details.  Enjoy the pics.


Vampires surround the surviving Possessed.






Lenny the Lazar confronts three cultists.


Lenny the Lazar fights a cultist.

The Possessed suffered from convincing the Undead to fight on. The Possessed go from having broken the Undead for only two casualties of their own to fleeing with three or four heroes out of action the next chance they get. A Brethren is reported killed.

None of the undead stay dead.

Last Orders in the Merchant's Quarter
The Witch Hunters, Marienburgers and Ghutani break up a bar...


Al Bobo holds the stair.  Al Bobo III had a great fight, he eliminated all of his opponents over the night.


The Witch Hunters hire an ogre...


There are only three Marienburgers on the main floor.


The Marienburgers fled first.  A Youngblood died.

The Ghutani got punished by lucky Witch Hunters, they gave up shortly after the Mary Anns.  A veteran Flagellant died from a fall.

The Witch Hunters had three or four heroes out of action in addition to most of their henchmen, but they hung on.  No one is reported killed although a hero rolls a Deep Wound for his 'best injury'.

A Port
The Possessed won a Fancy Meetin' YOU 'ere! in the Thieves Quarter.  The game didn't last long as the Witch Hunter's didn't fancy their chances, so just photos of the table after...






The Witch Hunters may have lost one of their sacrificial henchmen, still they get rich and hire lots of hired swords, including the aforementioned ogre...

Thanks Al.

Week Six--The Ruins of Bel Alaid

Warbands
Andrew--Cathayan looking Reiklanders
Chad--Possessed
Chris--Witch Hunters
Jim L--Undead
Jim S--Guhtani (Relics of the Crusades)
Kevin--Marienburgers

A Treasure Hunt
The Cathayans, Undead and Ghutani search for treasure in the ruins...

The Undead see a treasure before them (someone likes to use treasure chests for the equivalent of wyrdstone, which causes the inevitable confusion when the treasure IS a treasure chest, but oh well what ya gonna do?)


The Cathayans approach from the south.


The Ghutani have the north.


Ghutani hug the ruins.


The Cathayans trade arrows with a Tilean working for Undead... (do not try this at home...)


The battle of the sphinx...


The Tilean and his ghoul friend.


The Undead and Cathayans beat each other bloody. It is possible a zombie died. A Cathayan Youngblood died.

The Ghutani gathered treasure and threatened the undead and cathayans, who ran away.

Defend the Find
The Tomb Guardians defy the Mary Anns





An ogre...


Its possible the Mary Anns won. Its also possible they lost. Life is full of possibilities.

A Skirmish at the Oasis of 1001 Camels turns into an Elephant Hunt
The Witch Hunters and Possessed again...

A rogue bull attacks the Possessed...


The Witch Hunters hold the heights




Witch Hunters approach under cover of raging elephant.


The Possessed wailed and cried when the elephant charged them, then they slaughtered it. Five Witch Hunters went out of action as well. Not sure who won though...

Another Skrimish
The Undead and Cathayans again...






Lenny the Lazar...


The Undead fled with many out of action. The Rider was out of action on the Cathayan side.
The illegal Tilean is replaced with a nomad scout...

Another Skirmish
Mary Anns versus Ghutani. The Ghutani get shot.


Al Bobo III is killed as well as one of his flagellant comrades. The Mary Anns win.
____________________________________________________________________________________
I'm catching up, finally. The next reports will be of the secrets of the Ruins as well.
