  1. Also.... Demos can be run just about every day. Just call ahead and ask for James. He's one of the owners and a dedicated Black Lightning member!
  2. The league will officially start on Sunday, but the rules meeting will take place after the tournament on Saturday. The rules aren't long and hopefully will not hinder anyone from having a great time in the League. The meeting is mainly so that everyone can get together and meet all of the other players. Hope to see you there! Jason aka Mordenkainen, BL #104
  3. As I apparently am not set up as a Black Lightning member on the message boards, I will post this in General Discussions for now. The tournament is scheduled to start at 1 pm on Saturday. The forces will consist of 1000 - 1500 points. I am going to leave this up to the players to determine how long they want to stay into the night. If you need directions, check out http://www.aknightsrealm.com or drop me an email at [email protected] Thanks! Jason aka Mordenkainen, BL #104
  4. That's a good point... I set up my 'disposed' house as supposed traitors to the Empire. Mostly, they just chose friends that had some nasty plots going on. I think that clears the Templar name for the moment.
  5. What I had in mind for a background would be.... A long standing family <insert name here> had dictatorial rule over a sector of the galaxy. The area was rumored to be one of the wealthiest in minerals and supplies. After making a wrong decision on which side to back in a recent battle, they have all been executed by the Templars. this leaves a vacancy in the area so fast that you could hear the vaccuum calling in mercenaries as well as well known families that want access to the wealth. There will be between 8 and 12 planets in the area that will be staging points for the battles that make up the league. The final goal being taking over the moon colony that used to be the home of <insert name here>. I planned on starting people out with no upgrades, being armor, pilots, different weapons than stock, etc. This would then open up week by week based on how they do in the battles. I am going to set up an experience table that will be the only way they can get upgraded pilots/weapons officers without paying double or triple the base price. This will then include a chance to survive you equipment being destroyed in battle in an attempt to not tally piss people off when their ace pilot dies because of a lucky shot by infantry with a missle launcher. Each week would be a special scenario. These would include ambush, raid, gather the treasure, etc. All of these would have special rules that would then also give upgrades and additional experience. The league would end with a single table massive battle to see who wins control of the moon colony. That's about all I have for now...
  6. Hey everyone. I'm a new Assault Officer (#104) and need some help from you guys with some experience. I'm working with my Home Game Shop (also known as A Knight's Realm <-- shameless plug) to get everyone playing more by setting up a league. I have played and run leagues based on other game systems and I've noticed that there are always things that you do and do not want to do with a league. So finally to my question... Has anyone out there run a league for CAV, and if so, are there any tips or special rules, etc. that I need to know about to make sure that everyone has fun and no one feels that the league isn't fair. I understand that you can't please everyone, but I want to try. We've got between 8 and 12 people that will play. Although it isn't a large group, I think we can make it fun with help from you high level Officers. Thanks in advance.
  7. Just reitterating what's been said about GW... I've never had a problem finding someone that knows the rules and can play. It's usually harder to get in to a 'clic' to play more than just in trounaments. Usually it just takes persistance and some humility to get people to let you in.
