|The Lair (with Prisoners hidden) and Chris' finger|
|Lord Percival unleashes with his gatling gun|
On the other side of the board, Steve drifted too close to the Beastlord and got himself charged:
|Lieutenant Gordon and Constable engage the Beastlord|
Having pulled the Beastlord out of the lair, my President (Viscount Horatio) and Erazmus lured the Packlord out to the trees on the other side of the table before charging him:
|Viscount Horatio and Eramus take out the Packmaster in the trees|
Despite their throwing weapons doing nothing in the charge, and Erazmus falling in the combat, the Viscount with his exo-skeleton finally did the business and took out the Packmaster.
Lord Percival, with help from the Huntsman took care of two of the wolves who had charged out to attack them and suddenly it was looking bad for Chris and Matt.
Inspector Lestrade and his bobby in support downed another wolf, which meant that Chris and Matt had lost three of their faction, with another down, leaving three on the table. The wolfskins tested for bravado, lost, and promptly ran from the field. Steve then mopped up the Beastlord he was in conflict with and I took care of the last down wolf:
|Lieutenant Gordon defeats the Beastlord|
Rupert the insane got a little confused and ended up with the Lyacons:
|Poor Lost Rupert...|
This was a great game - not just because I won and because Steve and I got revenge on Chris but because it was truly competitive. There were more than a few tetchy moments over rules issues and whether the dice was cocked, but with a few beers it was all in good spirits. Steve and I shared the winning shillings reward so got 10 shillings each, as did Chris for losing (which was debated long and hard) Final points: Dan 36 shillings, Steve 21 and Chris/Matt 20.
Must say it doesn't quite work with three factions in my mind. The scenarios are designed for two and it feels a bit hard to fit them into three. Maybe with the four of us we need to run two simultaneous games each night as part of the same campaign - now that would be something. Vampire or Brotherhood faction anyone?
