Frostgrave Campaign Game 11 - The Temple

Yesterday we descended once more upon Felstad with our Motley Wizard bands, this time playing 'The Temple'. Of course I modified it slightly.

The Temple: A long ruined temple lays upon a raised part of the city. Within the rubbled centre there are 6 columns. Upon the top of each is a treasure.

These enchanted columns to a forgotten god protect the treasures upon them. they will need to be destroyed via melee to earn the treasures they hold. Once defeated, they crumble & the treasure becomes available for collection. Spells cast at the columns are ineffective.

Each column begins the game with +0 Fight. Should the column win a fight, it increases in power. With each success it gains +1 Fight becoming tougher & tougher as the martial energy is absorbed.

Each treasure collected earns an additional 20xp. As well if a wizard engages & defeats a column, he will earn +50xp.

We had 5 warbands involved in this scenario. It comes to mind that throughout the campaign, mentioning certain characters in the comic, can leave readers a bit confused as they may not know whom they belong too...thus I came up with what I hope is a solution. I picked up a whiteboard at the dollar store, which I will use to write the name of each character over their miniature. This I hope will alleviate any confusion going forward.

So here were the participants:

My warband led by Eben

Craig's depleted warband led by Innovar

Chen's warband led by Ludwig

Scott's warband led by Bob

Jonathan's warband led by Malcron (first showing time this campaign)

Of note is that I did not include characters where were absent from being badly wounded.

So onto the scenario!

All in all, this was a deadly scenario. We had several treasure hunters killed, as well as an apprentice losing some fingers. We had 2 Nullwave traps set off, which wiped all the active spells, thus making everyone reset their walls, fogs & wizard eyes. Eben was the only wizard to succeed with his Ulterior Motive - Fate Dial.

The aftermath yielded the following;

Innovar - 110xp, no treasures.

Bob - 550xp, no treasures. Trajan, Ted & Spot III killed

Ludwig - 700xp, 3 treasures - 265gc, Gloves of Casting, Potions: Healing, Teleportation. Silber, Jorge killed

Malcron - 200xp, 1 treasure - 50gc. Larry loses fingers, Jav badly wounded.

Eben - 530xp, 2 treasures - 70gc, Staff +1 Fight, Potions: Toughness, Explosive Cocktail, Invulnurbility. Orrin killed.

So this completed all of the scenarios from the core book. We will now be going through the Hunt For Golem campaign.

Thanks for reading.

Frostgrave Captain & Giant Spider

A couple more figures completed for use in Frostgrave

First up is an old metal figure which I thought would make a great Captain. He came from a Ral Partha 3 figure set.

Next was this large metal Giant Spider, which I believe is from Ral Partha. It's been kicking around for some time & finally got off the paint table.

Both will make fine additions to my Frostgrave games.

Everyone needs a good Kick!

As per the title of this post, I've gotten several kicks over the past few weeks, culminating in a big 3 box delivery Friday.

As can be guessed, I have received some more of the Kickstarters I went in on.

First up, I received the Vengeance Kickstarter a few weeks ago, but hadn't gotten around to posting. From my memory of this game, they mentioned "Think of Kill Bill"

As well as the add-ons for it. The Rosari Clan Expansion


Some extra games tiles which came in the expansion below

And lastly a Hero -  Meatboy Murphy.

 I also received a parcel in the mail on Friday, which turned out to be my Blackwater Gulch Kickstarter

For starter packs I just picked up the Lawmen & Outlaw sets, as well as Ashton Campbell. I recall there being a couple other factions available, but chose to go small on this one. There will be another Blackwater Gulch Kickstarter starting up soon!

As for the 3 large Jarrett already posted on our club facebook page...Mythic Battles has finally arrived! I went in heavy on this one as you shall see.

The core game 

Pandora's Box...not sure what's inside of this, but it may be all the additional stretch goal figures that were added throughout the campaign. Almost afraid to open it....almost

With all the unlocked expansions, Mythic realized that they needed a box just to put all the various cards, they added a Storage Box, the dimensions being the same as the core game.

Then came the expansions...

I took the shrink wrap off the core box to look at the miniatures. I was not disappointed!

So as rumour has it that miniature painters will not die until all their miniatures are painted, I think I just added another 5 years to mine as it will surely take me at least that long to get these done....added to my mountain which already festoons my basement. Perhaps I will just focus on the core game of each & then go from there. I still have some zombies from Zombicide Black Plague to complete on that front!

Thanks for stopping by.
