Welcome to Al-Haikk, the City of Thieves

This past Thursday marked the beginning of our newest campaign.

Chris S--The Possessed
Jim L--Turjuk Nomads (RotC)
Jim S--Arabyan Nomads (Khemri website)

It looks like three is going to be our number of players, except when one of us is off on vacation or such.  This is both kinda sad (I have all these 2 player scenarios that are not going to be played) and nice because we need less terrain.

We started with an old chestnut:
Pressgang!
The Curse of the Angry Drunk


It was past last call in Al-Haikk's Thieves Quarter. The dissolute had not yet left the Three Sisters, a house of ill repute with fanchises throughout the City of Thieves.  The warbands crept up on the brothel intending to capture slaves for Caliph of Lashiek's galleys.  Instead they found horror and death in the night...

The Turjuks stalk infidels

The Cult of Clumsiness attacks a small girl...

The Purple Prince and the Winged Terror contemplate a victim...

Al Bobo is alone in front of the Turjuk.  Abu the Monkey Man has just killed the Askar Jawhar, then been shot down in turn.

The Purple One approaches the Turjuk right

Mayhem in the Three Sisters

The Winged Terror claims another victim
Tales of the Arabyan Nights Part II 47a9da30b3127cce9854934498bf00000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The Purple One enters the Three Sisters

Al Bobo kills a drunk

Sheik Shufti takes a shot in the dark (he missed)
Tales of the Arabyan Nights Part II 47a9da30b3127cce9854934098bb00000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The Turjuk fled before the terror of the approach of the Purple Prince.  The Sons of the Desert held on in the hopes that Al Bobo would capture another infidel, but the devout servant of the One killed the pagan instead.  The Sons of the Desert flee.  The Cult of Clumsiness wins the first battle with 5 warriors (Warband rating 62).

As usual Jim L's Turjuk lose the first hero of the campaign Game 1: Askar Jawhar who was killed by Abu the Monkeyman.
They also lose one henchman Jamal the Townsman (w/ sword) killed by an Angry Drunk.
The Turjuk capture two drunks and kill one.  They sold everything to buy back their casualties.

The Sons of the Desert were broken by the Turjuks and Angry Drunks. One of whom took the Djinni Binder and Achmed out of action.  Abu the Monkey Man was killed by a Turjuk arrow.  
The Djinni Binder took a hand injury (now WS1!)  
Achmed fully recovers.
The Sons of the Desert captured two drunks and killed one as well.  Abu the Monkey Man II is hired.

The Cult of Clumsiness gained wealth and a new Mutant.  Chris started with just 3 heroes and the expectation of being overwhelmed by numbers.  This did not happen...  The Purple Prince gains Gino's Curse for 3 games for attacking Lucky Gino (a random event NPC).

The Lost Princess
The Princess Almah has become lost in the notorious Thieves Quarter!  Who will save her?

Not these floks.  The Cult elected to just attack the Turjuks. Here the Winged Terror learns that it is not dark enough.  The Turjuk shower arrows upon the fiend.

The Purple Prince steps forward to shield his compatriot.  The Winged Terror is not feeling well.

Battle is joined.  The Purple One is losing friends

Oops! The Purple One is out of action!

The Cult flees the scene!

Meanwhile the Sons of the Desert move towards Princess Almah

Except a patrol of the Caliph's Mamluks enter to rescue the Princess, too.

Here Almah has entered the United Pirate Shipping building to check on a package she is expecting...
Tales of the Arabyan Nights Part II 47a9da30b3127cce98549343198800000010100AbOXDRkzbMmWA

The Nomads attempt to persuade the patrol that they have prior claim on the reward.  This does not go well.

The Djinni Binder and Al Bobo attempt to convince the Princess to leave with them

The Turjuks are coming!

Except for this guy, who tripped in the dark

Abu the Monkey Man II falls to the Mamluks! (He was facing those 2 spearmen)

The Djinni Binder attempts to leave the United Pirate Shipping with the Princess, but, oh no, Turjuks!

The Turjuks press closer

Except for these guys, who are still back at the 3 Sisters

The Sons of the Desert have defeated the patrol.  Now the Djinni Binder races for the table edge with Almah while the rest of the warband prepare to stop the Turjuks.

Mir Sher tries a preemptive charge, (it does not go well)

Sweet Baboo is getting killed here...

The survivors fall back while the couple escape

The Sons of the Desert pass several leadership tests to stay in the fight until the Djinni Binder can successfully escape!  Each turn is paid for with another lost henchman or hero...

Finally the escape is made!  The Sons of the Desert snatch victory from defeat...sort of.

The Cult fled first.  A nameless minion dies.  The Purple One is blinded in one eye. (Which is sort of like being cursed, even though we promptly forgot Gino's Curse from the first battle...)

The Turjuks broke the Cult and cut the Nomads to pieces, but failed to win*. Ismail the Mamluk is killed (the Turjuks have Mamluks, too.)

*I had been criticizing the choice of Townsmen as henchmen for the Turjuks, so 2 of them blinded the Purple One and cut through 3 henchmen of mine, killing two. Mamluks are still better.

The Sons of the Desert lost Abu the Monkey Man II, Shem and Sweet Baboo killed in action. Achmed gets better...They gain 18 dinars, light armor, a helmet and shield as a reward.  They are also declared outlaw for 3 games in Al Haikk for resisting the Caliph's guards, kidnapping and extortion... Abu the Monkey Man III is hired.

We got two games in. A hero has died. The Purple One is cursed (if we remember and maybe if we don't). And the Sons of the Desert have become criminals. All in all a good start.
