Starting up MKBG PBF2: Another Blitz Conquest

Initial Character choice order will be done by D20 roll. Charcters will be picked Highest to Lowest 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.
Post Turn Over when you are done with your turn. Reroll any source dice with the following.

Movement direction can be noted with NW, NE, E, SE, SW, W. North is up on the map.

Source die will be rolled by the geekroller with:
1custom6{iid:1197625;iid:1197624;iid:1197623;iid:1197622;iid:1197621;iid:1197620}
Rollin 8custom6{iid:1197625;iid:1197624;iid:1197623;iid:1197622;iid:1197621;iid:1197620} -> ( iid:1197625 iid:1197623 iid:1197622 iid:1197625 iid:1197620 iid:1197621 iid:1197620 iid:1197622) ->
[+]

You can edit the first number in the line to change the number of dice rolled.
When rolling dice please put what you are rolling for in the "Comment (Optional)" section of the Geekroller

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 |Dark Paths |
| Diplomacy | Restoration | Guardian Golems/7/KT |
| Song of Wind | Mana Bolt | Ambush |

| Flight |Leaves in the Wind | |Hot Swordsmanship |

| Goldyx Tactic | Norowas Tactic | Tovak Tactic | Arythea Tactic |
| 2-Rethink | 4-Planning | 3 Mana Steal | 1-Early Bird |


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
Action cards in the unit offer are available from the Monastary

And the Council of the Void bestowed four warriors with baleful powers and bade them to go forth into the world and conquer in their name. The Council has promised an even greater power to the warrior that accomplishes the most in their name. Thus began the pacification of Atlantean Empire...

I'd like Norowas.

Btw, do the rest of you guys make private lists of stats for units, actions, spells etc? Or do you keep the game set up during the PBF? Any other trick?

I'm just gonna try the geekroller so I don't mess up later:

Test 2custom6{iid:1197625;iid:1197624;iid:1197623;iid:1197622;iid:1197621;iid:1197620} -> ( iid:1197625 iid:1197625) ->
[+]


Ok, it didn't look quite like your example. Would that be because I did "add a roll" and then edited the post to include it?

Edit: nevermind that, it just looked wrong in the preview.

In the previous PBF game, I didn't keep the game set up, but I did track which cards were left in my deck so that I knew what to expect. I pretty much have most of the cards and units memorized at this point, but when I need to, I'll crack open my game box and look at the actual cards.

Good luck everyone, and here's to a great game!

The first PBF game that Pat moderated was one of the coolest things I've ever participated in on BGG. In person, it's hard to play a four-player game of Mage Knight Board Game, simply because it takes so long. A PBF game is a good way to get the full experience without having to set aside a huge block of time.

Hopefully we can keep the pace from slowing down too much, which was sometimes a problem in the first game.

Goldyx - Round 1 (Day), Turn 1

Goldyx rises early. Yesterday, the Council elected its four knights for the conquest of the Atlantean empire. Goldyx wants to be sure he's the first one through the Portal. He plans to travel swiftly, and put some distance between himself and the others.

Goldyx plays Stamina and Swiftness for Move 4, and adds Rage and Tranquility (both sideways) to bring the total to Move 6. He moves E,SE,SE to the village.

The Council's spies have surveyed the area surrounding the Portal, and drawn some crude maps. The closest village is a full day's march along the coast to the east. Goldyx will make haste to the village, and gather a band of the strongest warriors he can find there.

Goldyx will use the GOLD die
to power Threaten. That's Influence 5 + 1 more from his Reputation - just enough to recruit the Utem Crossbowmen.

Goldyx loses one point of Reputation for his forceful methods with the locals.

Rolling source die (replacing GOLD) 1custom6{iid:1197625;iid:1197624;iid:1197623;iid:1197622;iid:1197621;iid:1197620} -> ( iid:1197623) ->
[+]


End of turn. Draw 5 cards.

Norowas - Round 1, Turn 1

That Goldyx... always in such a hurry. Norowas, on the other hand, takes his time, waving to the awestruck peasants as they watch their favourite mage knight stride by.

Norowas plays Stamina powered by a blue die from the source and Crystallize played sideways for Move 5. Move E, NE to the green mine.

Source 1custom6{iid:1197625;iid:1197624;iid:1197623;iid:1197622;iid:1197621;iid:1197620} -> ( iid:1197625) ->

Wandering down the coast to a village? Waving at the peasants? Bah! There's killing to be done!

Tovak plays Stamina powered with
from the source and a sideways Threaten to move NW, NE to the blue mine. He then challenges the biggest looking orc he can find, taking 4 wounds in the process. A Concentration powered by the
from Mana Steal and a Rage gives 6 attack, killing the orc.

Gain 1 Reputation. Gain 4+1 fame to go to 6.

I have one action card and 4 wounds in hand so won't be drawing any more cards.

Reroll both dice: Source die and Mana Steal die 2custom6{iid:1197625;iid:1197624;iid:1197623;iid:1197622;iid:1197621;iid:1197620} -> ( iid:1197620 iid:1197625) ->
[+]



Level up: Flip 2 skill tokens...


It's a risky start but I don't mind resting on a blue mine for a turn.

Maybe there should be a custom geekroller for flipping skills to keep the game running smoothly. j/k
Looking forward to following this PBF. I'm sure it will be as much fun as the first one. Good on you for running it!

If you don't want to wait for me to post your skills, you can use the geekroller to roll out 2 choices. This will require you to type out and format the roll on your own, but I am quite fine with you doing it. You can see my post 2 up from here for an example.

Arythea Round 1 Turn 1

Arythea arrogantly strides through the portal. The paths of her fellow knights are still fresh in the ground. "Haste makes waste" she thinks to herself as she moves stridently forward. Encountering a farmer travelling from the east, she grabs him by the collar and demands to know the news of the day.

"Another knight came through very early this morning and followed the coast south", he says. "Another is said to have defeated some orcs in the north, but is wounded, and there are still more orcs there. Still another is heading for the village just NE of here. More than that I do not know".

"Very well" she thinks, as she releases the man from her grip. He stumbles away. "I must move quickly, then", she says to his shadow. Arythea scans the horizon, and sees the upper ramparts of a keep just over the next fields due east.

A sneer forms on her lips. "The coward to the south must be Goldyx, and I'll wager that he has designs on the keep, but feels he needs help. I could most likely snatch it from him, but that mutated freak can have it." She sniffs the air.

"The mana here is weak and reeks of light and leaves", she scoffs. "But night is coming soon!" Now she senses something else, and turns to the north. "Blood", she notes with an evil grin, "both of foe and fellow knight, Tovak's I believe. That miserable farmer must have been telling the truth. But the fool Tovak was too weak to finish the job, and has fallen victim to the lure of jewels. I suppose I must continue what he was unable to complete." She disappears into the forest, where the darkness soon envelops her.


Arythea moves NE, NE, NW using 2X Swiftness (Move 2 each) and Stamina (Move 2) and Determination played sideways for Move 1. The last move into the clearing where the slain orcs were triggers the marauding enemies to attack. They are fortified, so no ranged attack works, and Arythea chooses not to block the attack and takes 2 wounds in order to absorb the 3 damage the orcs do. (Damage 3 divided by armor 2 rounded up to 2 wounds) Then she attacks with Rage (Attack 2) and Battle Versatility (Attack 2) and finishes the Orcs off.

The farmers nearby cheer her success (Reputation +1), but they quickly move away in fear. "They will soon be telling even better tales of my exploits, but this is a start." (Fame +2+1) Arythea feels power flow through her, and as she looks north to a small monastery, an understanding of how she can better handle the mana in this strange land comes to mind. "I will stop here", she thinks "and contemplate how to use my skills for Maximal Effect. And it seems that in this place I can use Hot Swordsmanship or Power of Pain or that wretch Tovaks' discarded skill Who Needs Magic?" She glances at the blood staining her tunic. "Power of Pain it is, then."
