There's no sun in the shadow of the Wizard.
-Stargazer, by Rainbow

Welcome back!  Prepare for a brand new campaign!  The sequel to the insanity that was Serene Annihilation.

History has been changed - Magnus the Pious, defeated in THE GREAT REBELLION!  The world is at odds with itself and a new nightmare stirs in the forests surrounding a once-great city.  The Wizard emerges, enslaving those he can - exterminating the rest.  He seeks to build and impossible tower to ascend to the stars from whence he came.

No one can escape him.  Reaching the sea is impossible whilst the Wizard's arcane science confounds the Starlight Forest into a labyrinth of dark trees and darker nightmares.

All images presented without further comment.

PostSubject: Loamhedge Renegades   Sat 1 Apr 2017 - 14:05

Rules and pictures are up for the first warband: The Loamhedge Renegades.  A strange variety of beastman indeed...

With the coming of the Wizard, the occupants of Loamhedge Abbey split into two factions.  One continued their worship of the Sky-Father, whilst the other turned to the Old Gods: the Wolf, the Crow, the Serpent and the Hyena.  The faction following the Old Gods lost and were excommunicated.  They wander the Starlight Forest as renegades - hatred fierce for both their old fellows and The Wizard.

More rules and background and pictures HERE.

Haha, yeah. This campaign, whilst still dark, is more whimsical than the last. Think Over the Garden Wall or Nightmare Before Christmas.

This particular warband was made for a friend who is a huge fan of Redwall.

As a whimsical sort myself, it does look interesting. Who makes the Mice Folk?  What a Face

PostSubject: Viridian Corsairs   Tue 25 Apr 2017 - 21:57

Second Warband, pictures and rules now available HERE! The Viridian Corsairs are a group of aelfs who have turned away from their peaceful, woodland ways and embraced their darker desires - reaving, blood sacrifice, even cannibalism. They have a black hatred for the Wizard for precipitating their fall from grace. They are one of the few warbands who openly turn the strange devices of the Wizard against him.

Nothing says Sweet Elven Maiden like a flame thrower. The white is a nice change from G.W's normal shades. GREAT WORK! thumbsup

The Flamethrower made me think "wait a minute, this is not a regular MH campaign...". So I actually visited your blog and browsed through the rules you came up with. You are using the AoS rules, so I guess they work out nice for you? Since you do use those, how do you treat advancements of heroes and henchmen? Didn't find anything about that on your blog, though maybe I just overlooked. Anyways, a handful of interesting ideas for campaign-management you have there.

Very true... There is more to come which will further make this campaign... unusual. I hope everyone will indulge me, as this one will deviate quite a bit from Mordheim. But, that's been what I've been doing so far anyway haha.

To answer your question, I am using AoS rules with the campaign rules HERE (which I think you read).

My gaming group is short on the attention span and record keeping. For a lot of people, detail and record keeping is the most exciting part of Mordheim. But for us, I think it began to get in the way (ie. remembering skills, EXP points, injuries etc. etc. etc.). It got overwhelming. I wanted more action, less admin - in other words, the difference between Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 (if that helps).

So, after each battle the players gain Supplies and (possibly) Secrets. Secrets are resources just like anything else; they are an abstraction and do not represent actual "secrets." Once a player gains enough Secrets, he can opt to roll a D6 after the battle and add his Secret total. If it equals or beats 10, that player gains a Presence point which he can give to any warband member (the player then also loses D3 Secrets).

Presence points work like combined might/fate points from the Lord of the Rings game. A model can expend them during the battle to either modify a die roll by +1 (might) or to avoid a wound on a D6 roll of 4+ (fate). Gaining Presence points is the only way models can "level" up. It might not seem terribly detailed, but it actually works very well. Having 3-4 Presence points makes a model significantly more powerful. And this method removes the need to track EXP or profile changes - making record keeping a breeze.

Thanks for your detailed reply. The LINK doesn't work (for me) but I think the campaign rules is what I've read. I don't know about LotR might/fate points but the way I understand it, the Presence points "refill" after every game? It still sounds a bit like record keeping but maybe it is all very easy compared to MH and I'm just used to that.
