Purposes of this thread:

1. My board game room is too hot now!
The garret room is 24x7 available to leave games set up forever, but there's no AC inside and the sun is just way too scorching hot to both me and my dear hand-made stuff.

2. Testify my strategic thinking of MK:LL in public.
Having played Volkare scenarios for a dozen or two times, I'd like to have one of my games commented publicly to learn more.
Your comments are welcome and will be highly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

3. Learn by doing PBF features and moderating skills.
And I will probably participate or even try to moderate one later.

4. Show off again.modest

Edit: With the vote results, and I found the thread would be too fragmented if I try to put it bilingually (even with spoiler). So neither option here and we go.

Edit 2: Note:

It's a Blitz scenario, so we:
- Start with Fame 1 (instead of 0) and gain one extra Fame for each level-up;
- Start with Reputation +1 (instead of 0);
- Start with one extra die and unit in offer each;

Map tile: portal in bottom, from left to right: first two unique 6d14 = (1 + 13 + 12 + 2 + 5 + 3) = 36

AA offer (up to down): (first three unique) 6d40 = (6 + 40 + 26 + 4 + 8 + 37) = 121

Spell offer: (first three unique) 6d24 = (20 + 6 + 13 + 7 + 16 + 8) = 70

Unit offer (first two in colored slot): (first four unique) 10d28 = (10 + 25 + 24 + 12 + 25 + 12 + 27 + 5 + 3 + 10) = 153

I'll update the mod tools based on the rolls above, and generate map tomorrow according to the vote result.

There shall be five units in offer. So the first five unique. The first unit slot is marked green and the second blue.

Day 1: Tactic selection

Goldyx's starting hand:
(B) Determination
(B) Swiftness
(B) Stamina
(B) Tranquility
(B) Promise

An obvious path leads to the glade and beat the Ironclad for my first level up.

We have the options to hire Magic Familiars there, or the indecisive Guardsmen in the village next door.

Goldyx has better opportunity to feed the magic babies, but the indecisiveness is more important in V's scenarios. You'll pay a lot for overlooking those vulnerable guys.

Tactic selection:
Without the need for an extra die(considering also the glade), we choose Planning.


I chooses 1custom5{"Early Bird";Rethink;"Mana Steal";"Great Start";"Right Moment"} -> ( Early Bird) -> ( Early Bird)

Shouldn't there only be four dice in the Source? Volkare counts as a player. Goldyx + Volkare + 2 = 4 !?

Next:

No attacking card, too bad!angry
Enjoy a crystal feast in the glade? Seems a good idea.
Mana Draw is a good chance to change the sucking source pool; on the other hand, it's a card after all. And we need to play sideways / discard so many cards soblue

- Mana Draw with glade mana to set a black die to white and gain two white mana;
- Plan Crystal Joy to change a white mana to a crystal;
- Play Promise and a sideways to hire Magic Familiars... Wait! Reputation doesn't count in the glad!

Red Crystal Craft and Universal Power

Looking in the offer, Ice Shield is good for the orcs under my nose (but Will Focus + Swiftness will also do), while Magic Talent (for Mana Bolt) is quite appealing for long term.

Let's look forward and choose:
Red Crystal Craft, and
Magic Talent.

Universal Power goes into the skill offer together with Tovak's 1d10 = (3) = 3th skill.

The following AA enters the AA offer: 1d37 = (13) = 13

Goldyx draws the new AA and other three cards:
-- (B) Rage
1 (B) Rage
-- (B) Determination
2 (B) Swiftness
-- (B) Swiftness
3 (B) March
4 (B) March
-- (B) Stamina
-- (B) Stamina
-- (B) Tranquility
-- (B) Promise
5 (B) Threaten
-- (B) Crystal Joy
-- (B) Mana Draw
-- (B) Will Focus
6 (B) Improvisation

first 3 unique 12d6 = (2 + 3 + 6 + 3 + 5 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 5 + 3 + 1) = 38
