I have just finished putting together the PS and Excel files needed to run this as a PBF (I hope). The intent would be that I would moderate, drawing cards, enemies, tiles, with 4 other players for a Blitz Conquest scenario. Any interest in this? It would be a long game, but could be a good exercise in strategy and rules for those interested in the game.

Initial Character choice order will be done by D20 roll.
Bold any actions or choices Non-bolded actions will be treated as commentary
No Editing bolded posts You have plenty of ability to play out and rewind stuff before posting it.
Movement direction can be noted with NW, NE, E, SE, SW, W. North is up on the map.
Post Turn Over when you are done with your turn. Reroll any source dice with the following.
Source die will be rolled by the geekroller with:
1custom6{iid:1191898;iid:1191899;iid:1191900;iid:1191901;iid:1191902;iid:1191903}
Some Source Dice 6custom6{iid:1191898;iid:1191899;iid:1191900;iid:1191901;iid:1191902;iid:1191903} -> ( iid:1191902 iid:1191902 iid:1191898 iid:1191902 iid:1191902 iid:1191898) ->
[+]

I will track all relevant information and post updates for the group status after each set of turns.
Map Tile updates will have to be when I am at home, but enemies I can post from anywhere when encountered at sites.
You MUST own a copy of the game. There will be NO card text or unit text.
Also this will be without PvP as it would slow things down waaaaay too much I think.

example of the tiles:


Example of the Status Update:

| Advanced Action Offer | Spell Offer | Unit Offer | Skill Offer |
| In Need | Expose | Herbalists/3/VM | |
| Diplomacy | Restoration | Guardian Golems/7/KT |
| Song of Wind | Mana Bolt | Guardian Golems/7/KT |

| Goldyx Units | Norowas Units | Tovak Units | Arythea Units |
| Foresters | Utem Guardsmen | Herbalists | |

| Goldyx Skills | Norowas Skills | Tovak Skills | Arythea Skills |
| Flight |Leaves in the Wind | |Hot Swordsmanship |


Strikethrough indicates that the item is exhausted.
A Red Unit is wounded.
A Green and Red Unit is wounded and poisoned (2 wounds).
The Unit offer shows Unit Name / Recruitment Cost / Recruitment Location
V=Village : K=Keep : T=Mage Tower : M=Monastary : C=City

Moderator:
CMoor213

Players:
Tycalt as Norowas
Crparis as Tovak
Glamorous Mucus as Arythea
Itai as Goldyx

Hope this works out.
editing and adding stuff to this as it comes to mind.

Sure, I'll try it. I own the game, know the rules very well, and have played about a dozen times.

Would we be playing with or without PvP combat?

Rolls for character selection order:
Tycalt 1d20 = (7) = 7
Glamorous Mucus 1d20 = (5) = 5
Crparis 1d20 = (4) = 4
Itai 1d20 = (19) = 19

Post your character selections. Then I will PM cards, post the starting boards, and do tactics.

The source isn't looking too diverse..

Tovak chooses Tactic Card 3 (Mana Steal) and chooses the red mana from the source.

If you are playing 4 players, shouldn't there only be 6 (number of players + 2) mana die on the source? You have 7.

Oops, sorry, missed the Blitz conquest rules..

Looks fun!

Arythea - Day 1, Turn 1

Plays March to move E to plains.

Ends movement and challenges the marauding Orc Summoners.

Takes the gold die from the source to power Concentration's strong effect, paired with Swiftness to perform a Ranged Attack 5
(the strong effect of Swiftness plus 2 of the same type of attack).

Arythea has defeated the Orc Summoners, gaining +1 Reputation and +4 Fame, +1 additional Fame for special level-up bonus peculiar to Blitz Conquest scenario.

She re-rolls and returns the gold source die....

New source die: 1custom6{iid:1191898;iid:1191899;iid:1191900;iid:1191901;iid:1191902;iid:1191903} -> ( iid:1191903) ->
[+]


Arythea discards the three cards played this turn, and prepares to Level Up.

She flips two Skill tokens....

Thanks!

I love seeing Concentration + Swiftness early. It will safely ambush 8 of the 12 orcs (10 of 12 for Goldyx) and 6 of the 10 dungeon dwellers.

Can't wait to see what skills I draw! I think I know which of those action cards I'm taking, but I want to see the skills first.

I must say I hadn't noticed the potential of Concentration so far. Now I certainly won't neglect it anymore...

However I am not sure about it, but aren't we supposed to reroll the used dice ourselves ? Something about

Okay, I think I figured out how to do it. The GeekRoller is weird, I've never used it before.

I edited the post to include the re-roll. The new source die is red.
