Check out the new adventures on the DOW site, under the "official adventures" link. They look great, and there is one for the Hill Giant!

More than one!

Yes, 15A - Brignais is a Hill Giant scenario, but check out 13A - Hill Camp...

Hill Giant vs. Giant Spider smack-down!!

15A Brignais:

Quote:
Special Rules:
Free Company infantry units on elevated terrain hexes, will battle in melee from hill to hill or down from a hill, with four battle dice.




... er, is this to mean that the usual from-a-hill disce restriction of 3 is elevated to 4 for the Free Companies side of this scenario...

...or is this to say this scenario beefs up the Blue infantry and incredibly supersizes the green infantry (if on hills).

I read it to mean any infantry on hills gets 4 dice. They had rocks...

...but the forces of Jacques of Bourbon Count of Marche... don't get the bonus... I suppose the use of rocks as weapons is a specialized skill!

I really don't understand why they restrict this to registered owners. I don't have Battlelore and haven't had a chance to look at a set. Being able to look through sample adventures would help make the decision to purchase it.

Besides, it's just fun to look at scenarios, even if you don't play that system!

Quick question about the legality of the Seguin of Badefol side of 15A - Brignais

It says it has a War Council of 7

Commander Rank 3
Warrior Rank 2
Rogue Rank 1
and a Hill Giant (Blue)

Wouldn't these make the the War Council a level 8?

I was under the impression that:
a Green creature cost 1 war council point
a Blue creature cost 2 war council points
a Red creature cost 3 war council points

I must be mistaken tho...

Anyone?

Thanks,
Shane

It was a widely discussed rumour that creature levels were worth different amounts of council levels based strictly on their banner type. These rumours were eventually dispelled. DoW may eventually release 2-level creatures, but so far every creature they've released, regardless of banner colour, costs a single war council level.

You can always make them yourself, and then invite people in.

I converted all these adventures to PDF versions. I sent a request to post them here so waiting for a response. I know a lot of people have problems getting those pages to print correctly and I got all the formating to fit on a single page which can be easily scales to any printer as a PDF.

Hopefully they will allow it.

Eric was kind enough to allow me to post the PDF versions of the adventures here on BBG. I've uploaded them so should be up once the admins approve the files.

Please note these are the latest updates, I reprocessed them today since Eric did some revisions yesterday.

EDIT: The file is up. It's a zip of the 7 PDF files for the official adventures. Enjoy!
