Today we played our 7th Campaign game of Frostgrave. This scenario, entitled 'The Worm Hunts' saw the bands pitted against Giant Worms.
It all started out as a normal treasure hunt...however unbeknownst to the warbands, something was stalking these ruins, beneath the ground.
During each creature phase, a die is rolled, adding +1 per treasure that has been picked up. On an 18-20, a Giant Worm rises near one of the treasure tokens, determined randomly. These worms are drawn to treasures as if they were opponents. They will spend an action eating a treasure if unengaged. Also the normal campaign rules for picking up treasures apply (rolling for creatures).
Each Giant Worm slain by a band earns 50xp on top of normal experience.
We once again used the Ulterior Motive cards, however only 1 was attained with no-one entering a pit which contained gold, thus earning Craig some much needed gold crowns.
The Ulterior Motive cards in play were Emerald Eyes, Last Words, The Money Pit & Circle of Possession.
The aftermath of the battle was as follows;
Bob (Scott) - 380xp, 3 Treasures: 230GC, Potions - Demon in a Bottle, Strength, Healing, Elixer of Speed, Elixir of Life; Grimoire - Plague of Insects. Tom II - Slain.
