Warhammer 40000

It's official. We're getting the band back together. I've spent some cash and bought a bit of figures for Warhammer 40k again. I'm going to rebuild my army and I have a few friends ready to get playing again too.

Forbidden Island

A fun cheap little cooperative board game for 2-4 players. I've played it a few times and it's been fun every time. I even grabbed some pictures the last time.

Evacuation: BattleTech

Following the events of the planetary battle, we were forced to flee to a strange ship that appears to be from the future, having crashed into the planet thousands of years ago. We now are trying to survive long enough to escape this nightmare.

One Pages

So now I've posted a few of my first one pages. The idea again is to sell a campaign to my group so they can pick what they want me to run. A few clock in at the 2-4 year range. Some are only 6-12 months. Most are open ended however. Once they pick out a campaign to play I'll get a full campaign document set up and we'll go from there.

XCOM: One Page

Pretty much done with this one, so I'm putting it out in the wild here.

More Keys

It's been a few days but here are some more keys for anyone interested. This game has already been posted once, so a few more people can get a chance at it.

Celebrate Good Times

Another key drop for sure. The first exersise of giving away keys this week was a great success for hits. I'm hoping a few of you stick around and read some of what we post.

More keys!

Here are todays Steam keys. I hope everyone enjoys these, better they get used than sit around here forever.

Dawn of War

No pictures this time. I didn't have time once the fights began. But it did go well. Except all the times we died, we won a lot.

Keys Keys Keys

The last batch of keys went really fast I hear. So I have a few more to clear out this title.
Enjoy these keys. I'm going to clear a few more titles out later and have the posts last throughout the week.

Post 200

Kind of a big deal.

Soulstorm

Three people are missing this week so rather than playing without them (at a fairly pivotal point in the game) we're taking a break and playing some Dawn of War: Soulstorm.

One Pages

Not sure if I've explained what a One Page is when I use that term or not. I'll cover that a bit here before I get into what I've been doing lately for them.

Rambling Thoughts

Currently going through some thoughts to make my group better, in terms of enjoyment and good will. Also to make my life a little better.

Journal Entry 5 - Air Support

In a preemptive strike we managed to break through the enemy warships to give our ground forces some aerial support.  During maneuvers we crippled the Clan warship in the asteroid field and held the other one long enough for me break through with a few wings.  We managed to infiltrate enemy airspace but were greeted with a nasty surprise.

The Final Showdown

The battle continued going on for well over 12 hours. More and more waves kept coming. After a while the Smoke Jaguar 'mechs stopped coming, followed by the Lyran mercs.

Journal Entry 4 - Lyran Logs

The enemy is becoming more aggressive and bold in their pursuit of our warship.  Some more fighters have been lost, more good men we cannot afford to lose.  Engineering reports that external repairs have been finished and our point defense systems are back online, we might just stand a chance.  The other day Captain Jacobson had ordered the launch of a couple probes to passively scan for signs of survivors, results came back.

Journal Entry 3 - A Rocky Road

The asteroid field offers little in the ways of a safe haven as the hazards of collision constantly plague us.  Though we took many losses in the initial attack we still maintain a strong strike force.  The survivors are shaken but immediately go to work on the emergency repairs as we try to evade enemy patrols.  Overall moral is at an all time low and it doesn't help that we're forced to work in double, sometimes triple shifts.  I cannot remember the last time I was able to sleep and I wonder if any of our forces made it to the surface?

In the Dead of the Night

As we traveled through the night, an attack rang out from the path behind us. Missiles pounded into the read of the mobile forward operating base.

Journal Entry 2 - A Desperate Retreat

After the remaining dropships broke atmosphere our warship made it's way to the backside of the moon.  I rallied our remaining fighters for a counter attack to buy our ship precious time.  The enemy must not have expected that as we tore through their main line and launched a full out assault on their main warships.  One of the ships was clearly Clan, the other was sporting the emblem of a tree without leaves and looked suspiciously Lyran by design.

Journal Entry 1 - Surprised Attack

Everything was going according to plan.  Our ship successfully completed it's jump close in proximity to Sigma 17, just behind the moon.  Being Lyran Guard my crew and I were anxious to assault the world under clan control.  As we were about to be briefed the ship approached a geostationary orbit over our target in preparation for 'Operation Hammer Fall'.

BattleTech- Base Assault

Continuing our adventures and onto what we think is an enemy emplacement or mobile base of some sort. Before we could get that far, there were even more adventures to be had.

BattleTech- Day 10

The day began with a mech assault. Two shadowcats and another 55 ton mech that I don't quite recognize.

BattleTech- Military History

Having shown promise in his days at the military academy, Wilhelms transition into the military went well. Despite his inexperience he quickly made a bit of a name for himself in his training unit and was bumped into the 4th Lyran Regulars for the remainder of his training period. The obvious intention was that the 4th wanted him as a frontline soldier, well suited for his sometimes cocky attitude.

BattleTech Day 9

Field report day 9:
Sgt. Wilhelm Eich, 11th Lyran Guard, reporting.

A pair of scouts brought us a black box from an aerospace fighter. We sent the technician to repair it. He worked on it and found a command lockout. The doctor put in her codes and the device started smoking like crazy. The technician then threatened to kill the CO several times, then also threatened myself.

Five Ways to Be a Better Player

Reading up on some gaming stuff and took a break to watch some videos on YouTube and ran into this video, wanted to share it and hopefully let him help more people. Enjoy.

BattleTech- Day 3

Sgt. Wilhelm "Barth" Eich reporting.

After finding some clues to the nearest enemy outpost, we had the misfortune of running into an Clan mech. I ran my Bushwacker into the field and stopped power to await in ambush.

Battletech Field Report Day 1

Day 1- Wilhelm "Barth" Eich reporting.
After coming out of FTL the ship fell under assault while we were in briefing with the command staff. With no time to think I ordered my crew to tend to the officers. Fortunately they were only stunned. We rushed to our drop ship only to find the ship under heavy attack and suffering major damage. Thinking quickly we rescued a pilot and work our way into the ship.

Welcome to the Breakdown

I was hoping to have some level 6 characters to show off this week, so instead I'm going to throw out some stats for the current level five characters.

Tax Refund

So, I was going over some things with one of our players the discussion went to why they don't get huge lumps of cash.

Rats!

We're almost caught up here. This includes "Rats!", "Invasion," "Ritual," and the "Fire Temple."

Soveliss, Revenent Warlock


Soveliss reborn. Servent to the Raven Queen.

As a note, the group has not yet found the location to convert him. So this thread hasn't been picked up yet.

Enter

This batch I can't give away all the encounter titles because they give away a bit too much information.

Friday, March 29, 2013

The Defense

Things are starting to pick up here. We're at level two here, and everyone should have some idea of their character.

Things to Come

This one came as a two part fight. One battle right after another. I like this idea and have used it again later. I did the idea differently later on, but big fights split into multiple little fights seems to work in this system if you fudge it a bit.

Survival

I'm going to throw a few together here since it's just a few random quick encounters. Remember, these are still "learning the game" style adventures. These are "Survival," "Surprise Them," "Bad News" and "Goblin Leadership."

Scout Party

Catching up to where we are in the story right now. Roughly 40ish entries. Be gentle, these are my first experiences with 4e and was easing into the way the system works.

Cliff Diving

A simple encounter to to learn the mechanics for the new players and refresh our older players.

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

New Projects

One reason we've been lagging is that there just simply isn't a lot going on. We're playing 4e and the group takes roughly 4 hours for a properly leveled encounter. Partially because we have 6 PCs (Soon 7 I think), partially because we get distracted and partially because some people take forever.

Updates

Just updating here. It's been quiet with the holidays and such.
I'm experimenting with a few orginizational methods, for gaming and my personal life. I also updated the gaming room. Still in progress, when it gets done I'll share some pictures.
Hope to see you returning through the new year.
