Next game will be April 13 from 1-6pm at Carolina Comics. Looking like we may be doing a Level 1 Succession Wars-type scenario. I'll post more details as they're decided.

Dave was asking me what the setup would be so he could get sheets ready. Maybe 5k intro tech with bv adjusted pilots? And then one objective for each side?

We had a good 9k vs 9k bc2 intortech battle Sunday. It was a good time. We had one next player that we conned into throwing some dice and another gentleman that has got a game or two under his belt. We used some special rules where sinkholes could form in the first open hex you enter running. If you rolled 10+ on 2d6 it was sinkhole time. You had a chance to roll a psr of piloting +1 to avoid the fall. The gentleman that was playing his first game had horrible luck with the sinkholes. But I think he still had a good time.

Shop1ift mentioned he may be out of pocket for the May game. So, I may be coming down to throw something together.

I would be down to meet up some Thursday or Friday at Game HQ and play. I may be able to get a few more involved with some warning. Or another shop if it is more convenient.


Most of the games I am aware of at Game HQ were Grinders that Jonathon hosted. We did do one Friday night game to try and make it more centralized. Also, it was an excuse to get tacos from the taco place in the shopping center.

I play the Warden Wolves, Hell's Horses, Goliath Scorpions, FedCom/Suns, League- Regulans or perhaps Rim, and mercs . . . mercs in the Chaos March is my primary campaign at the time.

Do not play much past the start of the Jihad (have not advanced that far), but I like beating on Blakists, Falcons and Cappies.  Hellions are a close runner up . . .

Well, are you in luck! I just so happen to play the Blakists and the Cappies, and love beating on Clanners! :D

Colt, did you see the Grinder scheduled for Soonercon later this month? Jonathon is doing one on Friday too. That is most likely the day a friend and I will go since he is off Friday's.

Here recently I have played CJF and Steiner. But im working on some Wolves, Ghost Bear's, and Kurita at the moment.

Also, I just picked up the TW/BLR Box Set which I would love to use- I figure it will also throw out a good look for anyone watching.  I am thinking I will spray the white primer on the Intro minis and have them on hand if we get any pick up players.

What sort of scenario do you have in mind?

I just got the Wolf and Blake and Sword and Dragon books, might run some campaigns out of those. Also been meaning to get the Chaos Campaign book for some custom campaigns.

It was an interesting time, too bad I had to work so much of it.  I was thinking about using the Intro set to run the Lawyers, Money & Guns as the first scenario uses all mechs from the box, other scenarios using a few in each.

We had a good game today with 6 players. We used the optional powerup rules. It made things quite interesting. Next time We will probably tweak the rules a bit.

The next game is tentatively for Sunday July 20th @ Carolina Comics. I will let Shoplift fill in the specifics for what kinda of game we will do.

I thought I took more than this, but I guess I did not.


A few pics from today.

July 20th
1-6pm
Carolina Comics

Scenario will be early Clan Invasion, Clan Jade Turkey (sorry) FALCON will be attempting to take control of a city from a determined IS force. 15K BV2 adjusted for piloting and gunnery for each side. Faithless is assembling the Turkeys (sorry, bad habit) Falcons and the valiant, hard-working and down-right likable IS force will be assembled by myself. If you want to bring your own units to this, you are more than welcome to, just make sure you know the BV cost of each and we'll be more than happy to adjust forces to accommodate you. Try to keep it to 3058 and earlier designs, no Tech Level 3.
