Nice intro David.

 

Chronomancers can be cool, we all know that.  With one really hard spell to cast iirc.

 

Good luck to all of you and hopefully all have fun.

Oh my gosh!  Loving the intro, David!  Very accommodating of you to put that together.  In retrospect, I should have asked for the write-up and money  ;=)

Looking forward to the beginning of the campaign!  Tomorrow, right?

Quail's report from Game 1 has been posted: The Eclipse

 

Maga Librarian Quailelyn sat at a table in a crowded tavern in one of the several crossroad villages that had sprung up in the last couple years on the far outskirts of Frostgrave.   Next to her sat the Apprentice Librarian, Bailisette, and across from her sat the knight, Sir Cardidil.  While the two women intently studied an ancient tome opened before them, Sir Cardidil kept a watchful eye on their surroundings.

   "I still can't believe you took one of the atlases from the Library's antiquities section!" Bailisette said to her superior in a hushed voice...

The new campaign has begun!  Huzzah!!

A nice write-up.  I believe Dorchesman stole the spotlight in my book.  A tip of the hat and, "I meant no offense," to avoid to combat before successfully standing up to the opposing captain was pretty nifty!  I hope he manages to stick around for a while to provide some nice moments of swashbuckling comic relief.

Looking forward to the other write-ups, and as a request, next time you and the crew meet up, could you possibly get shots of all 8 (or as many as are there) warbands?  Maybe it's just me, but I think it would be nice to see all the bands involved even though we only get the reports from three bands.

I agree, seeing all parties involved would be kinda cool, if it's doable.

Thanks, Pippin!  Glad you enjoyed the write-up.  You'll be happy to hear that Dorchesman already was promoted to Treasure Hunter, so hopefully he will have more longevity.   We'll see if we can get some other warbands photographed.

By coincidence one of the Elementalists, posted a post-game photo of his band to his blog: Frostgrave

 

Dumbledore, Harry Potter, and their warband of battle ducks!

Not by all... I spent the whole game driving to NYC, trying to avoid the sleet/snow that was bearing down on us. Next game though...

 

Pippin, While you could have asked, you still would have only gotten the write-up!

      I'm curious how many of you survive...

      Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness.
       
      We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?”
       
      He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out.
       
      See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively.
       
      More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world.
       
      (One of them won awards.)
       
      So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout.
       
      I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough.
       
      I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters.
       
      I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.

      After almost a year of work, I've finally completed this piece. 2 hours each on the adventurers, about an hour each on the terrain pieces, and close to 6 hours on the dragon itself. A lot of different colors used, so I'm not even going to try to mention them all. The terrain is mostly dry brushed, and washes. The dragon has no dry brushing at all though. Everything else is either layered or blended painting. Thanks for looking! Enjoy! (And yes, that is my YouTube channel in the background. LOL)

      Hi, this is project of my friend, she is a talented artist.
      I`ll be glad for your help to make this project to life.
       
      Kickstarter

    • By Pingo
      Inspired by this post by Darsc Zacal, I'm starting a new game, "What Mini Am I Anyway?" Anyone can participate.
       
      The idea seems to be to see if you can identify a miniature from its silhouette and possibly some clues.  Thematic groups are not required, but can add to the fun.
       
      This is the image that spurred the idea:

       
      Clues:  This is a party of PCs in a game loosely (very loosely) based on White Wolf's World of Darkness.  Two figures are from Reaper; I mentioned the sources of two of the other figures on these forums last month.  One figure has been modified by the removal of a weapon.
       
      Players are encouraged to identify the figures by company, name (if any) and SKU number (if any).  Prizes are, um, the respect of your awesome detectoring skills and "Likes".
