Frostgrave

Recommended Posts

The ebook and some solo scenarios are now free on Osprey. Use code FGV2020 at checkout. No link, cause of commerce rules.

Their website seemed very busy when I tried to log in and purchase the rules and adventure.

 

But I got them! :winkthumbs:

 

[Looks at library collection of unplayed games.]

 

One day, I may even read them.

I feel kind of bad about this:

I went and ordered the PDF of Frostgrave.

I went and placed a Mantic order for minis to use in Frostrgrave.

::(:

 

But I promise I will be making an order for Frostgrave minis again, soon.

 

I was already planning on the Mantic order when reminded that Frostgrave gives me another reason to use them. (And, to be fair - there is a set of Mantic figures intended for Frostgrave, it's just that all the figures in that set are also in the Kings of War undead army box....)

 

The Auld Grump - I am painting them up as my Goody Two-Shoes undead for Vanguard - giving their shields the Cross of Malta.

Likewise, I had the hardcover edition, but am happy to have an electronic edition too.  I was able to download both the pdf and epub editions with no problem using the code.

 

There’s apparently a second edition coming out?  Nice.

Why did they decide to do this? Did they say?

Thanks for the heads-up!  We have a hardcover copy of Frostgrave, but a PDF is more portable.  

I also have hardcopies.

I have been talking with Osprey Games about how we can help out with all of the people who are currently stuck at home, either by government order or because they are helping by self-isolating. It seems like this is a time when everyone could use a little solo gaming! I suggested that we give away Dark Alchemy, since that has 3 solo scenarios… but that only helps people who already play Frostgrave.  So, in the end, we just decided to give away the Frostgrave rulebook too!

So what is an epub?

 

epub is an open, XML-based ebook publishing format standard.  Most e-readers can display epub documents natively, and most smartphones, tablets and computers have apps that can display them too.

Osprey is making more of their e-books available for free, five a week for the next four weeks.  Titles are a range of historical and modern warfare references.  Check the blog on their site for more details.

Played our first game last night.

 

Wicked easy rules, almost like an RPG, but way deadly combat.

 

Grump took down my wizard in one round, ganging up on her with his wizard and two soldiers in a group action.

 

He cast exactly one spell, Elemental Hammer.

 

He didn't need all the soldiers, he did ten points and the Elemental Hammer did five, then she was down. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am!

 

He wiped out MOST of my warband, then proceeded to loot the library. Letting my tracker companion and two soldiers wander around.

 

But all my casualties survived without permanent damage, so they will be out for revenge, next time.

 

He never fought with one character, he MOBBED each one of mine.
