Gen Con 2019 Trial of Bloodright
« on: 10 August 2019, 13:16:04 »
This year's Trial of Bloodright was for the Jade Falcon bloodname of Roshak. Turnout was good, with both the Grand Melee and Trial with full attendance. As in past years, I was too busy to note who was Hunter/Hunted.

The Grand Melee featured a lot of spirited fights, but the most memorable (in my mind) was a Pinion 3 whose arms had been destroyed (thus weaponless, but not much other damage) trying to get close enough to another mech to kill or be killed. Specifically [https://photos.app.goo.gl/TuEaVFQaiujLNYB18] a Black Lanner H missing a torso ran to a level 1 hill next to the level 0 Pinion, landed some weapons fire, and attempted a kick on the Pinion. The Black Lanner missed the kick, failed the PSR, and fell on its back causing a crit, which resolved as its third engine crit. I credited the armless Pinion with this kill, and will be making a diorama of this epic event.

In the Trial, we had 8 first-round games that ended in a tie (simultaneous kill, or no winner at the 1 hour mark) and had to be decided by the GMs, with another 5 among later rounds. The current explanation for this is the large number of 4 gunnery pilots, which was mostly due to the advanced technology on many of the mechs, causing higher base BV.

Congratulations to the winner, Marv Sims-Roshak.

Thank you for the write up; a minor correction for you, I was player 22 and started with the Marauder II C 6 which was a 3/4 G/P, in round 1 I defeated the Thor II Prime which I ended up having to drive in my round 2 defeat because I was the hunted.

Thanks; I have corrected the table. Who drove what for round 1 was a bit of a crapshoot, as I had to deduce it afterward. Too much going on and not enough time for me to jot down mechs there, tho the pictures helped some. I did get accurate records for the rest of the rounds.
