Our Ghost Archipelago Campaign, 2018

Recommended Posts

Doodling today; thinking of adding a banner for my crew. The

plant badge leaf is a place holder and would need to be replaced

with something real; the badge is a rock. ::D:

Good report Rob, and nice looking banner.  Skorri looks forward to capturing it.........

 

Well Skorri finally got around to completing his report from the Abandoned Mines and will start working on the next report.

 

You can read the report here:  The Abandoned Mines

 

Hope you enjoy it,

Knabe

Super write-up as usual, Knabe!   

 

I should have mine ready from the October game ready either later today, or tomorrow morning.

Finally got my report written from the Saurian Breakfast game we played back on Oct.13th.   

 

For Rob Dean's tale of the battle, see his post on the previous page:  http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78871-our-ghost-archipelago-campaign-2018/&do=findComment&comment=1763394

 

My full account, and more photos, can be seen on my blog:  Saurian Breakfast

 

      "...At last Lilisea felt her feet touch the sandy bottom, but as she went to stand a strong hand grabbed her tightly around the ankle and yanked her leg hard.  She lost her balance, fell forward, and was pulled under the water.  Trying desperately to break free, the Crew-woman kicked her leg, and, clawing the bottom with her free hand, tried to twist around so she wasn't facing the ponds floor.  The man released his grip, and quickly moving alongside her punched her hard in the back.  The air went out of her, as the Pearl Diver now grabbed her by the back of the head, and shoved it under the water and down to the pond's bottom..."

 

and

 

     "...Calling on his inherited abilities once more, the Lord Fortrywn attempted to leap up and use the wall behind him as a springboard, but the wound must have weakened him worse than he thought, as he was not able to gain the momentum needed; and his attempt to Evade failed.  His foot hit the wall but he was unable to propel himself upwards.  His blood burned now like molten iron under his skin.  (Fail my Evade attempt, another -3 HP) The enemy Crewmen were at first startled by the Elf Lord's upward movement, but quickly regained their wits, and as the Heritor landed clumsily, they struck once more..."

Well, we played the final game of our campaign back on December 8th.  We ended up skipping our November session due to my being sick, and unable to host.  I have posted a report on our final session, "Christmas Islands", which was based on the Core rulebook's "Swampland" scenario.  

 

   I didn't get around to writing the bulk of my report until the new year, and by then had forgot many of the details, so did not do a narrative account.  Instead I simply posted photos from the game and a brief synopsis. 

 

Report: Christmas Islands

 

Thanks to those of you who followed along this past year!

      Since before all this craziness started my wife and I have been saying how we should start gaming again. This of course led to the question of, what to play? After some discussion and explanation (not to mention some gentle nudging) we decided to start a Ghost Archipelago campaign seeing as it ticked the most boxes. Its fantasy based, not too complicated or hard to learn, plays quickly, and the combat/general gameplay is enjoyable. 
       
      I'll be the first to admit this discussion and decision occurred at the beginning of the lockdown and our first game was last Saturday. Why the long delay between deciding and starting? A good and valid question, which basically boils down to home repairs, relearning the system, and creating two identical (stat wise at least) crews. So as the lockdowns start to lift in some places our lockdown campaign finally begins. 
       
      Before I forget to mention it this was my wife's first game and only my second. So we opted to ignore Heritor and Warden abilities/spells altogether. I know this takes a lot away from the game but we figured it was better to get the basics down first. Our next game will certainly include these however. 
       
      By simple luck of the die our first scenario just happened to be X Marks the Spot, the first scenario in the book. We placed all the treasures and deployed our crews. 
       
      My deployment.

      My wife's orks. 

       
      That's when I noticed I hadn't rolled for the creature/creatures defending the central treasure. It almost didn't matter as it ended up being a skeleton that my archer killed on turn one. I'd call it the play of the day.
       
       
      Placement after turn one or two. I honestly lost track. 

      As you can see we're both positioned to grab two regular treasures apiece while a melee is brewing at the central treasure. 
       
      It was around this time that we both really got into the game and subsequently forgot to take any pictures. Not a bad thing, just not great for a battle report, I'll try my best to report everything missed however. 

      1.)The central treasure had become quite a melee involving both our Heritors and Wardens. I managed to knock out her Heritor just before mine went down. In the picture you can see the two Wardens squaring off for the treasure afterwards.
      2.)At bottom center you can see one of my crewmen getting ready to escape with a treasure.
      3.)Top right corner you can see one of my archers getting ready to escape with another treasure. I managed a very lucky shot which outright killed one of her crewmen that had nearly escaped with that treasure. 
      4.)Middle right my goblin crewmen is almost off table with a treasure.
      5.) Not pictured my wife's orks secured a treasure on the left side of the board.
       
      The next turn I secured three regular treasures and the desperate fight began for the central treasure. With only my Warden and mercenary remaining I squared off against her Warden, mercenary, infantryman, two archers, and a regular crewman. Though I came close to taking out her warden mere inches from table edge and safety it wasn't meant to be. Both my Warden and mercenary were knocked out and she secured the central treasure. 
       
      Her final positions after removing my last two figures.

       
      My casulties and treasure.

      Final results: 
      My mercenary was killed outright while everyone else made a full recovery. 
       
      Treasure:
      Fury Leaves +30gc
      50gc
      Smoke glass and Lingle berry
       
      Heritor XP: 185
      With my level up I increased my movement to 7.
       
      Warden XP: 60
       
      Her casulties and treasure (including the central treasure).
      Final results: 
      Her Heritor took psychological scars subtracting 1 from her Will, while everyone else made a full recovery.
       
      Treasure:
      Stinkwort and Farlight Leaf
      Fury Leaves + 30gc
       
      Heritor XP: 160
      With her level up she reduced a heritor abilities utilization number by 1.
       
      Warden XP: 60
       
      All in all it was a ton of fun and neither of us can wait for the next game. This game did however show me just how little fantasy terrain I actually have, so I guess I know what my next project is.

      Kislev lives on in our hearts forever. 

      I've continued my theme of building the Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago Crew with a Steppes feel.  The majority of these are built using bodies and arms from the Crew kit, with some Empire/Mordheim heads and other outsourced bits.



       

       

       

       

       

       
      The last batch wound up being more generic Pirate types.

      My most recent painted pieces are the Tribals from Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago.

      I really liked the spirit mask options.  My grandmother had a set in her spare room, and I was fascinated with them as a child.

      The Cyclops is actually a 3D print by Valandar to celebrate the successful funding of his Titans of Legend Kickstarter.  The Cyclops stretch goal in the FG:FA Nickstarter wasn't hit, but the file was released the same day.  I figured he would fit in with them.

      The club's next Ghost Archipelago campaign starts this coming Saturday, so I am taking advantage of the day off to make sure that I am ready.  We are starting with new crews, and my new spell caster (warden) has a spell to create a little piece of blocking terrain, so I decided that I had better make a few today.  I am hoping/expecting that 6 of them should be enough. The parapet is supposed to be 2" long and a half inch high, so I pulled out some 50mm cavalry bases to stack stones on.  
       
      Step One:
       
      Glue on stones and wait for things to dry.

      Seeing this map of the 100 Acre Wood on my Facebook feed made me think what a neat scenario map it would make.  This got me thinking how cool a Pooh based Crew would be for Ghost Archipelago.
       

       
       
           I immediately thought of Reaper’s Werebear, and Wereboar for Pooh and Piglet as the Heritor and the Warden.
       
           And coming up with an anthropomorphic Tiger, Owl (Bones Black Owlbear?), and Rabbit shouldn’t be hard.  For Eeyore I thought I could convert a Minotaur.  
       
      Anyone actually make a Weredonkey or Werehorse?
       
      My real sticking point is Kanga and Roo.  Does anyone make an anthropomorphic kangaroo?
