Here comes Krang (and some other heroes like whatisname and whosheis) vs Volkare!

Proposed Game:
-5 heroes, one of which will be Krang
-Volkare's Quest Scenario (Co-op, level to be determined)
-All LL updated rules and Krang rules included
-random map tile orientation
-we will auction heroes (if it proves necessary)
-Vassal module (thanks Ben Kyo) used for moderation and screenshots
-I will moderate and provide card draws through GeekMail
-Players will be responsible for returning dice to source with rolls, and can (if desired) do the random selection for revealed monsters and hero skills. Moderator will also provide any of this as a service when requested (or when forgotten).
-Level of combat: Daring, Heroic, or Legendary Custom for 5 players: city level 5, Volkare level 34
-Race level: Fair, Tight, or Thrilling Custom for 5 players: Volkare wounds 18, Indecisive units 5
Volkare's Army:
6 White enemies, 0 Grey enemies, 6 Red Enemies, 16 Green Enemies



-Here is the list of expected participants:
Jeff Bridgham (jebry)
Karl (kilrah)
Jeroen Visser (Charian)
Seppel (BGG) (Seppel)
Jack Spirio (Jack Spirio)

To be determined:

-Whether or not I play. I would play as a completely public hero, all hands, draws, etc... fully revealed (though some might use spoiler space). (This only applies if the number of private players is less than 4.) (I'd also go last at the start of the game.)



Additional reference material:
How to play PBF Mage Knight (specifically for rolling dice)
-the above also links to a spreadsheet that contains lists of monsters & ruins. This can be used to generate a revealed monster when you need to (following the instructions there). I will also provide a specific list during play when it seems appropriate (ie. when a Mage Tower is added and a player is nearby).

Well - still in ;-)

Personally I'd aim for a fairly low difficulty as the technical stuff of playing and the long time of the game (I assume many months) make things harder already. At least that is my assumption. Plans get forgotten, ...

Oh and - no objections for the moderator to join. We will be going coop anyway.

Sounds good!

Since this is a coop, what level of discussion prior to moving should there be? I know that f2f this would play out naturally, but on pbf, I am unsure what my allies would expect.

Personally, I'd say go with your gut. In most situations, you'll probably know what to do, but when it starts getting complicated, feel free to ask. Either people will respond or they won't. (And we probably won't want to wait too long before just playing)

Since I'm not playing, I can add the council's two cents (which may or may not be worth that... I'm only a middling player) at the miminum when advice is sought.

Great!

Co-op, interesting, I've never played that before!

Well, that might be a good thing,because I will go on holiday in 6 weeks. I hope that's not a problem.

Great

I will go with 1custom4{Arythea;Goldyx;Krang;Norowas} -> ( Goldyx) -> ( Goldyx)

I think table talk is ok as long as one player does not try to plan the turns of another player...
But we should discuss, who can accomplish what with his first hand and waht will be the best way to split...
We also should discuss who can recruit which unit.

Also, let me get out in front that I'm a bit nervous about mod-ing this. Especially now that Seppel and Jack are playing.

Just try to be gentle when you point out all my errors.

Initial Map setup:
(14 countryside, 4 core, 4 city)



Beginning source:

(in case you can't see - though actually it looks pretty good)
Green, Green, Green, Gold, Gold, Blue, Blue, Red

(Volkare has not been given his armies yet, it's gonna be a lot.)

hey - we all keep doing errors. In my opinion that's one of the great advantages of PBF games: you have other guys checking your turns and rule understanding. That's the best way to learn & improve the game

Yes, those were my main concerns, along with using the source. For instance, the starting source has only one red die in it, so who gets to use it. Of course, this source is much easier to handle since it also has two gold dice, but it could get much less friendly!

Oops, I did not realize our names were listed in order already.
Btw, I did not choose, I rolled for it. So I don't mind if someone else rolls for me, as I am going to bed soon snore

Random order for hero selection:

Seppel (BGG) (Seppel) => Goldyx
Jack Spirio (Jack Spirio) => Krang*
Jeff Bridgham (jebry)
Jeroen Visser (Charian) =>Arythea (unless jebry wants her)
Karl (kilrah)

*unless my interpretation of events is wrong. Because I do want KRANG! Krang you very much! you Krang? Krang up the volume, Krang up the volume!

**I've only played 2 solo games with Wolfhawk, and won both with relative (for me) ease. So, I love her so far.

Some coop planning will definitely be a good idea. We'll see if it gets out of hand.

As soon as jebry picks his character anone might as well roll a die for me to pick the remaining one. Do not have a preference.

Sounds good. Nobody has really seemed too attached to a specific hero so far. Which I guess is a good thing in a co-op game.

(I attempted two solo Volkare's Quest games yesterday just to get a sense of the play and the difficulty. 1) It's fun 2) Volkare moves really quickly 3) range and siege are vital 4) expect to get knocked out)

Sorry about the delay guys. I forgot this was in the Krang forum and I hadn't subscribed to that forum yet. I have now subscribed!!

BTW, I also like to play Wolfhawk, she can really run!!
