So,

Today I hosted Dilvish, Chaoswolf, and my neighbor Doug, for what we hope to be a monthly Frostgrave campaign...

 

The table:

It was, from my perspective, an interesting learning experience, as I lost first my wizard, then my apprentice, and 6 more of the 8 soldiers I started with.....

 

Dilvish and Chaoswolf took more detailed notes than I did, so they will be able to tell the story better, but I went through quite a few D20s, and they all deserve to get hit with sledgehammers.....

 

At least my wizard and apprentice survived, and I didn't lose anyone permanently, but I will be without 1 archer, and 2 thugs next game as they heal....

And I only got away with 1 treasure...

I only got 90 exp, and just to gain a level, I had to choose the Laboratory option for my base to break the needed 100 points to gain a level....

I also discovered that My spell choices were not the best, and as it was the first game, the others consented to letting me change them....

Thanks guys!

 

But it was a lot of fun, and hopefully I will do a bit better next game....

 

off to Koplow for a pile of D20.....

 

And whatever Dilvish's wizard's name is, He needs to append "The Sniper" to them, as he found a 48" line of sight with minor obstructions, and killed 2 people with Bone darts.....

Nice set up!  I look forward to seeing Dilvish's and Chaoswolfs reports from their "detailed notes".

 

There is a bit of a learning curve as to what works and what doesn't.  And keeping behind cover is an imperiative!  Be sure to try and add Fog or Wall to your new and improved spell line up. :)

Excellent!  A nifty new campaign to follow!  Have the three of you (and Doug for that matter) considered doing background write-ups for the warbands so we can get to know them (or at least the wizards) a bit more and therefore share more deeply in their sorrows and rejoice more loudly in their triumphs?

And why are none of these cool Frostgrave things happening in the Springs?  :=(

I have a full concept of my warband, but need to actually sit down and write it up....

Yes I have plans and a background.  I don't have a blog to post it on.  Yet.  I may have to start one.  Of not then it will be in some spoilers posts here.

If that's Colorado Springs, I could arrange for a game for you in Denver. (Palm Springs would be a bit harder. ^_^)

We'll it took longer to write-up than I thought but I wanted to get it done while the details were still somewhat fresh.

A shot of the area after the fight for the treasure.  That's Stephan (between the tower and the platform) after taking out two of George's thugs.

I added the pics from my phone and then went back in on my wife's laptop to type, you impatient drow.  And I added the link to the write up I spent the last 3+hours on. ::P:

What link????

      Okay, with Reapercon coming up I will be running some Stargrave & Frostgrave games. So I have been in the position with transporting BOXES of minis and terrain before, and even though I have a truck, I thought that there might be an easier way to carry the stuff. Both of the 'Grave games are heavy terrain and while this is part of their charm, it will be much easier if I can limit the number of boxes going to Texas with me. Then the other day in Hobby Lobby, I was trying to figure out how to build this stuff, when I found their collapsed gift boxes. Perfect! And CHEAP! So I hit them with some variety of spray paint and then used the Plastic Mesh for windows after they dried. I am a bit concerned because I tried good old Elmer's Glue and I am not 100% confident in it's ability to work on the plastic of the mesh. So, everything is drying tonight and tomorrow will be the acid test when I try folding the boxes into their flat configuration. Anyway, here are the pics as I went along.

      I don't play Frostgrave — I'm not even sure what it's all about — but I thought these figures were cool.

      So since I don't have enough on my plate....
       
      I decided to paint all the Duskwardens, since they are my faction...

      So Damaris Walmund was the choice

       
      And her little (NOT!) dog too!!!!

       
      Pinning her wrist was.... fun....
