Hello Brimstone fans,
I started a new posse a few weeks back, this time the Orphan and Drifter (the two I hadn't played yet), plus the Gunslinger, Saloon Girl, Enforcer and Daimyo, those with skill trees I hadn't tried yet. So far, so good. I stay with playing those with the lowest XP and had to fiddle the numbers a bit to incorporate the Drifter and his weird XP scheme.
But I reverted to the original thresholds for leveling up which seem to work better with smaller groups of characters, at least I have a feeling they fit better within the system of leveling up skill-wise and having enough time to collect good items while not being pitched against too formidable opponents. So far, the equipment is less than stellar, and the enemy upgrades right from the start due to the Drifter make things tough sometimes, but it works.
I play Shadows of Brimstone by myself (since my wife doesn't like it), and I set up a campaign system for myself which mainly consists of rules for hero rotation and town engagement (see https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1808815/variable-party-close-xp-gap). This blog will try to describe the games so far and the coming games. Forbidden Fortress has been with me for a while, and the characters are coming along nicely. Brimstone Adventures is next, I don't quite know yet how to incorporate the northerners, the conquistadors and the Trederrans into this campaign system, but I will think of something. If you like, feel free to contact me about the games or comment the blog.
