Pyrates of the Karribean--To be a Pyrate King

"It is, it is a glorious thing To be a Pirate King."
-Gilbert, Sir W(illiam) S(chwenck)


We are back in the Karribean with a small selection of players:

Chris--Sartosan Pyrates (Black Mab's Crew)
Jim L--Sartosan Pyrates (The Baywatch Gang)
Jim S--Estalian Corsairs (de Hombres Rojas)

As often happens, even though we roll for random scenarios, two players rolled the same scenario (and we were already set up so we only played:

The Governor's Daughter
(a Pyratical variation of The Lost Princ[ess])

The Governor's daughter in this version was a sweet innocent girl avidly awaiting rescue:


The battlefield: the canals of old Torktuga. De Hombres Rojas at the top. Baywatch Gang bottom. Black Mab's Crew are off right somewhere.


Gunner Harvey about to be taken down by Captain de Guzman (with Al Bobo's approval, top left of screen). Other pyrates get their just deserts...


It rained which dampened the enthusiasm of all pyrates with black powder weapons. In addition, the Voodoo Queen, Mama Regina, appeared in spirit form and spooked several henchmen. Gunner Enrico of the Hombres Rojas fled the field in terror, his weapon unfired...

The Baywatch Gang grabbed the girl and ran, but failed a rout test before they could escape. Black Mab wins.

The ransom is 13 gold, heavy armor and a helmet. Mab gains more gold selling captured crew...

De Hombres Rojas
The Moor was captured by Black Mab and sold into slavery.
Al Bobo was robbed.
The crew found a Dropped Satchel with 1gc in it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Governor's Daughter, Take 2
(a Pyratical variation of The Lost Princ[ess])

For this take we finally rolled a feisty daughter... We have been playing this scenario since 2009, really!
The Baywatch approach from the east...


De Hombres Rojas are robbed by a Halfling Thief. Captain de Guzman shoots the little git. (Thus stampeding the [invisible] crowd...)


Mab's crew is trampled by the frightened crowd


So are most of the Baywatch.


However, the Baywatch are favored by the daughter's whimsical movement (again).


Once again the Baywatch and de Hombres clashed. Once again both routed and the Crew win...

Jim L. wrote:
The Bay Watch Gang

Capt. Hassleman found a Treasure Map
Cat-o-nine tails and a sword were stolen from Al Bobo. pirat
Cabin Boy Little Billie got stabbed by the mean daughter. He receives an Old Battle Wound in his 2nd game
Crewman Flynn became a Ladís Got Talent hero
Gunner Harvey was captured by the Crew. We lost his blunderbuss and sword.
Crewman Bratz died.
And a Exploration found Swabbie ran away when we routed

Iíve decided to try to buy Toughened Leathers for everyone that I can afford

And that 2nd Governorís daughter was a mean brat!

De Hombres Rojas
Hadj was captured by The Crew and sold into slavery.
Jaun the cabin boy received a Smashed Leg. He is now known as Jaun One-peg...
Princess Alma (cabin girl) fully recovered. (No relation to the Governor).

We hope for more players next week...

Oooh, I look forward to following this one! Good looking warbands, very impressive scenery... I suspect this might turn a bit epic as well.

& am I mistaken, or did that Governor's Daughter used to sulk at Bretonnian jousting competitions?

Thank you for the kind comments.

@Rhydderch--I think she is a frenzied mob model. She features in a couple of award winning dioramas if I recall correctly.

Ah, so she is, which means I'm thinking of some other model at Bretonnian jousts, going even further back...

Pyrates of the Karribean: Saturdayheim & Week Two

We were joined by Jake L (no relation to Jim L) after Thanksgiving. An anonymous pirate warband that looked a lot like de Hombres faced them in two games last Saturday...

All battles have taken place in the Pyrate Port of Torktuga as the pyrates are loathe to try guns of the Port Sigmar Shore Patrol (and can roll higher than the dwarfs at least when choosing location).

Last Orders
The eight dwarfs faced ten pyrates in the Old Tower Tavern. Most of the action took place on the third floor. One pyrate tried to smuggle a knife into the bar, but was caught and ejected. Without weapons the S2 pyrates had little success wounding T4 dwarfs, even if there were more pyrates... So as soon as four pyrates had fallen, the pyrates fled the bar. No one died, but the pesky engineer gained enough experience to become a Trickshooter. No dwarfs went out of action...

Fancy Meetin' You 'ere!
An inebriated variation of Chance Encounter

Drunken pyrates blunder into drunken dwarfs with crossbows in Torktuga's streets. Kabala the Colossus (a pyrate mate) is killed by the Trickshooter. The pyrates' black powder weapons are ineffective and they flee again. No dwarf goes out of action. No dwarf is promoted either. The Pyrates of Saturdayheim gain a hero for their struggles.

Down on the Docks
The Bay Watch meet Dwarfs

The battlefield a few turns on. Despite having a 36" range with crossbows the dwarfs elect to close to 24" range before attacking the smugglers or the Watch.


The speedy pyrates close on the smugglers.


But a crossbow bolt startles the invisible crowd, who trample the T3 pyrates.


Someone planted all these palms in the middle of the street.


Dwarfs take cover.


The first pyrate aboard meets a sorry end.


Then the gunner who was covering the alley gets impatient and tries to climb down into the street... Out of action on a climb fail...


Then the pyrates grab a crate and start to carry it away.


Lads Got Talent Flynn gets knocked into the water.


Mrs. Wolfgang (a pyrate mate) clears the decks of smugglers by herself. (4 smugglers OoA!)








A Thunderer intercepts the larcenous (but inept) pyrates by running through the unguarded alley. The Dwarfs want ALL the treasure. (They don't get it. One dwarf is put out of action!)





Event!--A hidden assassin attacks the Trickshooter (The assassin rolls 3 ones to wound...)


The Bay Watch flee with 2 heroes and 3 henchmen out of action. They capture one cargo crate which turns out to have 2 gc worth of food AND a hidden dose of Crimson Shade. Somehow the pyrates manage to capture one of Mrs Wolfgang's victims. He is pressganged.

Jim L wrote:
Mrs. Wolfgang was outstanding tonight.

Cabin Boy Shark Bait, got an Old Battle Wound

Cabin Boy Little Billie, got Old Battle Wound. At 4 exp. he has +1Ld and +1I. so I fired him.

L.G.T. Flynn, must miss the next game.

Hired another Gunner but could not find a blunderbuss.

Gave Mrs. Wolfgang the smuggler's light armor (gave the sword & pistol to Flynn)

Bay Watch Gang now has 11 members and 118 warband rating.

The Smugglers fight to the last man. For all their shooting, the dwarfs eventually are forced to board the ship and kill the Smuggler Captain to win.

The Dwarfs gain 6 cargo crates from the ship and others in exploration. They confiscate (steal) mainly food, booze and clothing. A Thunderer becomes the fifth hero. None die.

More adventure to come...

Thanks Al.

Rock the Boat
A nautically themed Defend the Find

Des Hombres Rojas had 10 warriors, Mab's Crew had 12. So des Hombres occupied the Find, an improbably placed ship...


Mab's Crew


Confrontation (there is an invisible crowd of pirates, merchants and stevedores thronging the docks, oblivious to the impending conflict...)




Suddenly the event Siren's Song called half of des Hombres away from the ship... Gunner Rafeal charged the Crew and upset the crowd. The Crew on the docks were trampled. One of unfortunate Crew fell into the depths where a saltwater crocodile did the rest...




The crowd toss des Hombres' handgunner in as well (but no crocodile appeared...)


Not many Hombres left...


Even though Mab and one of her mates were called by the Sirens (and a couple of crew fell to des Hombres or crocodiles) the Crew still out numbered the surviving Hombres who stayed with the ship. The Crew wins. Mab and her first or second mate fully recover. Princess Almah must miss a game with a leg injury...

No one dies (a shock considering how many warriors were out of action this week). Mab finds unguarded gunpowder while des Hombres claim a crate of pocket pistols off the docks. Des Hombres gain LOTS of gold for once.

There's a real anarchic element to your games/campaigns, you know that? Siren songs & pirate-gobbling crocodiles & all. It makes even the simplest seeming of battle reports into something ever surprising & very fun to read!

Pyrates of the Karibbean--Pressgang!

This week Chris was out of town. So Jake's dwarfs beat up on the two Jims in the scenario Pressgang.

There were around 9 drunks who had been drinking inside the local United Pyrate Parcel Service warehouse...

The dwarfs left wing. I think that fella fell down in the dark...


The Bay Watch right is right around the corner.


The Engineer trips before he can accost the nearest drunk.


Mrs Wolfgang claims the first drunk. She also triggers the panicked invisible crowd.


Who trample the Bay Watch Right


And Left


The Battle of the Dogs is fought by Des Hombres.
The Dogs arrive just as the crowd tramples 7 Hombres...














Meanwhile the Watch struggle with the next drunk...


The Captain of the Watch intervenes (while his crew are being whittled down by dwarfs...)


The Lads got Talent Dwarf pays for impetuosity




Revenge!




The Bay Watch flee with the Captain and two other heroes out of action (along with 3 crew).

Des Hombres keep buildings between them an the dwarf crossbows...




But the dwarfs advance






Brawl!






Not a good turn for Des Hombres


Flee!

Dwarfs win.

The Bay Watch Gang captured like one drunk... Anne Bonny suffers a Chest Wound, but no one dies. The Watch had three heroes standing when they ran, but complain of horrible exploration anyway (because, like, they made the most money, but fail to find that blunderbuss again).

Des Hombres captured two drunks and killed one angry drunk and 4 dogs... No Hombres died. But only one hero was still standing when it was time to run.

The White Dwarfs roll poorly but gain 50 gold from a lucky exploration find in addition to the 35gc they gain normally (I think they didn't roll enough dice or something). They captured 2 drunks and killed one as well. The lone hero to fall is Hardened.

The Vertically Challenged Ones are really splendid miniatures; it is a shame they will probably never see any paint other than white.
