I still have some preparations to do, but please "sign in" here and I will do the 'seating' arrangement and appoint you as Norse Gods!

You can find the rules here, if anyone wishes to bone up on them...

So, are you saying you are 'reducing' the fun for everyone else by actually knowing how to play? whistle

You are Tyr the Norse God of single combat, victory and heroic glory!! Whenever you roll the dice you may role twice and choose which outcome to take.

You are Frigg, said to be the wife of Odin, and the "foremost among the goddesses". You are the queen of Asgard! Whenever you search for the souls of vikings, you may remove one Fire Giant that you have drawn.

You are Freyja the Norse Goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, gold, sorcery, war, and death. While performing actions, you may perform two actions in the same world.

You are Frey the God associated with farming, weather and as a phallic fertility god. You get 4 actions per turn instead of 3.. however these must still all be performed in different worlds.

You are Odin, Ruler of the Norse Gods and associated with war, battle, victory, death, as well as wisdom, magic, poetry, prophecy. When you draw enemy cards at the start of your turn, you may look at the top two, choose 1 to play and return the other to the top or bottom of the enemy deck.

I need to look through the rules.

Given that you're Thor, I think you just attack things... Enemies; Giants... that sort of thing.

But seriously, I will run through what you can do on your turn and how I'm going to moderate the game pretty soon.

No I was saying just for once in one of these games I might have an idea of what is going on.

Almost ready to start, so I will quickly run through the basics of the game and how I will mod it here...

Player turns consists of:

1) Draw an enemy card and activate that enemies power - except on Odin's turn, I will just post which enemy moved and what the outcome was. In the case of Odin, I will list the top 2 enemies from the deck and Odin should then decide which is to be played, and whether the other goes on the top or bottom of the deck. The power level of the effect of the enemy depends on which space they are in 1or2 =1; 3or4 =2 and 5or6 =3 if the enemy reaches 7 he does not activate his power, but if he remains in the 7th space at the end of the god's turn, you lose!

2) Next players will get 3 actions (Frey gets 4!). These must be used in different Worlds (Freyja can do 2 of her 3 in the same world):-

- Land of the Elves - Take 1 Elf token (used in combat)

- Sacred Land - Move the Vanir up 1 space on the track, or move him back to the start and execute one of the actions available.

- Asgard - Fight one of the enemies in order to try and push them back a space.

- Midgard - optionally move the Valkyries one Island left or right, then search for the souls of the Vikings on that Island by pulling 3 tokens from the corresponding bag.. Vikings are kept and giants are returned to the bag (Frigg may discard 1 giant drawn).

- Dwarven Forge - take an available level 1 weapon (there is one each for the 6 enemies) or return a level 1 or level 2 weapon and take the corresponding next level.

- Ice Fortress - Fight one of the giants. Either one in play, or (without looking) the top giant from the deck.

- Kingdom of Fire - choose one of the 4 bags and search for Fire Giants - pull 5 tokens out and discard any giants, returning vikings to the bag.

- World of the Dead - Take up to 5 Vikings from the World of the dead and add them to the bag of your choice.

- World of Darkness - you may Take/Give/Exchange tokens (elves ot vikings) with 1 other god/player.



As a rough guide, you will need to fight enemies and push them back quite a lot.. that is the meat of the game... and to do so, you will need Viking tokens (and elves).. so some of the game will be spent manipulating the bags... i.e. removing giants; adding vikings and then drawing tokens. You will also need to get the 6 weapons at level 3 between you.

The giants all have a rune of one of 4 colours (Green;blue;red;grey) if all 4 giants of a colour are defeated you get a big bonus - lots of extra vikings; no enemy cards for 3 turns; push back 3 enemies 1 space each; push back 1 enemy 3 spaces. This may seem hard to do as you will only know which colour giants you are facing if they are in Play... however the last space of the Vanir track (spot 5) allows you to search through the giant deck and instantly defeat 1 giant of your choice, this can be great for finishing off a rune and getting that benefit.

Combat

When fighting either the enemies or the giants, combat works as follows:

- Choose how many Viking tokens to spend. Each token is +1 to the result.

- Roll the dice - The dice for the game has 6 sides, with two blank faces, two faces with 1 axe on and one face each with 2 and 3 axes on. each axe is worth +1 to the result. for the purposes of geekrolls, use - 1custom6{0;0;1;1;2;3}. Tyr may roll twice and choose the best result.

- If fighting an enemy, add the value of your enemy specific weapon, which is worth 1 to 3.

- Thor adds his +1 to the result.

- optionally spend any elf tokens for a +1 each to the result.


compare the total to the toughness of the enemy, which depends on the space they are in - 1or2 =5; 3or4 =6 5or6 =7 and 7 =8 if your total is equal or greater, then you have defeated the enemy and they are moved back 1 space.

Giants generally have a toughness of 3, though 1 giant has the effect of increasing this by 1. There are also 6 giants that increase the toughness a corresponding enemy by one.

In moderating the game, I'd like to try and do it without using as much graphics, as this is always the most time consuming part of doing shadow hunters etc. I have computerised a lot of the information like bag contents, enemy positions etc. so I will use the following format which is exported from my web-app. I will maintain the turn order graphic, and may also use that to show who has which weapons...

//-- SAMPLE --//
Enemies
Fenrir Position 0 Power 0 Toughness 4
Hel Position 0 Power 0 Toughness 4
Jormungand Position 0 Power 0 Toughness 4
Loki Position 0 Power 0 Toughness 4
Nidhogg Position 0 Power 0 Toughness 4
Surt Position 0 Power 0 Toughness 4

Elves & Vikings
7 Elves are available in the Land of Elves
5 Vikings are in the Land of the Dead

Vanir
Vanir is at 0
Vanir Options - No options


Valkyries
Rainbow Isle > White Isle > Blue Isle > Green Isle > Black Isle
Black Isle has Sunk
Valkyries are at Rainbow Isle

Giants in Play
THRYM Jormungand +1 Blue

Giants Defeated
UTGARDLOKI No God Powers Green


I am still working on this table of information, so it will get added-to, and refined, during the course of the game...

I would like you to keep track of your own tokens and weapons.. i.e. post how many you have at the start of your action phase. It would also be helpful to post which god you are.

e.g.


1 elf
3 vikings
Nidhogg +1
