It is up for pre-order on Amazon already and perhaps the cards won't be carried directly by Amazon unlike the books. Probably be the same problem as with the miniatures which I find cheaper to buy from the UK than buy here in the states, $22 for on the of plastic boxes from the UK and $35 here sometimes more.

It's retaliation for what we pay for Nike trainers and CDs in the UK  :engel:


Of course once we have done the trade deal with "Donald" all will be sweetness and light - cheap sweetness and light.  :closed-eyes:

So I was trying to adapt a Facebook find "Rise of the Liche Lord" and forgot to check this forum first.

Does anyone have a scenario list from Thaw of the Liche Lord?  Rufus got me through 6.  I expect that the guy doing the adapting didn't have ship models because he left out my (forgotten) favorite scenario Frozen Shore.

I know of these scenarios from Rufus:
Total Eclipse

Frozen shore

Loot the cart

Storm of Undeath

Run of the Rangifier

House of Longreach

He also skipped the Rangifier one which doesn't bother me much.  Wondering what comes next though. 

And still missing battle reports. Mine are here:

So I have been enjoying this last year on the bash and I think it will happen this year again, but besides the core rule book what should I order from the site?
My list had a captain so I guess I should also get the Sellsword expansion, but as epub or PDF? (I think I rather have a printed version so PDF is better?)

Still haven't bought into this game yet.  I watched one at a convention recently, and couldn't get into it.  I was disappointed, yet wondering if perhaps it was just how the game was being run.

Come on GP, where is your adventurist spirit?

Have to try everything once at least.

Who said I wouldn't?  Part of it doesn't have to do with what was most recently seen, but instead a s explained previously. :icon_wink:

Played my first game today, finally. Failed to cast every spell I tried with both my wizard and my apprentice. Started the game outnumbering my opponent, ended with only two guys standing, while he only lost two. Still, it was a draw, because we played the genie scenario and when he killed my guy carrying my third treasure he picked it up and it was the genie. I had chased off most of his other guys with my knight, and dropped a fellow with my crossbowman, and when the genie killed that guy I was the only one with models on the table, so the game ended in a draw! He got 410 xp though. :/ I got 150.
CannonofDoom spews his shit at me all the time and I haven't banned him.

I've only played the game a couple of times, but some of my friends are really into it, have played dozens of games and no sign of stopping.

Me being me, I've started doing a bunch of modelling for it but not yet played any games with the models...

Hi!

We're playing our second Frostgrave's campaign. This time, we're using numbered cards for each turn to discover different events (as "build your own story books).

Some photos of our games (we built two complete scenearios for Feldstad):









Cheers

Looks like a good board and I like the idea of cards to make a story like that!

I also like seeing those bridges/ramps from the hobbit set being used like that. I had a similar idea to use them like that, but havn't got around to painting them yet.

I've been using Frostgrave on some RPG events as the wargaming annex guy, and people are really digging it. Am yet to play any real campaigns so far.

This is a three-way match between a Chronomancer, Elementalist and Necromancer.


So we had this event tied to the afrodescendant movement here in Brazil, regarding african cultures and consciousness. It's part of a larger project where we use RPG and wargames for teaching young people - as a History masters I have been stirring them to historical wargames, but fantasy wargaming holds both mine and students' interests in general greatly.

This warband was made to suit such event. I've taken into the west african 'bardic' tradition of the djeli/griot, storytellers and musicians/singer poets who often served as their culture's memory-keepers, historians and political advisors as well as teachers. And more - in their folklore, magical musical instruments are very common themes. Hence! I did this griot wizard, currently fielding him as a Chronomancer, and his warband inspired on Mali legends.



And here, facing some necromancers!
Seeee todo este ouro... for MEU!

I think they look brilliant, and the idea of it sounds great as well.
