Played a few games of Frostgrave and enjoyed it, got most of the supplement books and bits, I was happy when the Perilous dark book came out as i have played a few games of the solo Rangers of Shadow deep Solo game. I decided to give the new book a try, i created my party and dug out my terrain and miniatures suitable for the first scenario in the book. Writhing Fumes, The party must get to the other corner of the table and open a door to escape.
30" X 30" table set up using my GW terrain and my latest addition to my Gala Force 9 desert rocks and ruins.
Large Vapor snakes on the spawn points
Huge automation guard the door
The party left to right, Chakari Ranger, Fingers the thief, Mushula the thug, the wizard Shalla Bel, Lyra the apprentice, Rex the war hound and Tak the Barbarian. (Dice rolls were as they fall )
The party sets up in the far corner
First move they engage a large Vapor Snake Shalla slows the entity so it stops before them
Fingers and Rex make short work of the creature.
Shalla advances and is beset by a large and small Vapor snake
The Automatons wander on guard.
Shalla slays the large Vapor snake and Chakari face the small one
Lyra and Rex come to there aid dispatching the entity
More snakes attack and a huge metal automaton charges inot the fight
Combine the party defends against all the enemy's the Automaton smashing to pieces for the blows of Shalla and Chakari joined by Mushula, while Tax fends off a large Snake
More small vapor snakes appear in the spawn points
The second Automaton and large Snake wander close
Tak falls and Lyra is also downed by a Large Snake, the party is in trouble now
Shalla and fingers are confronted by a snake they fight it off
Chakari and Mushula grab a treasure box and hope nothing appears
Another large snake surrounds Shalla and Fingers, he slays one and turns to dispatch the other
Seeing the second Automation charge at them as he destroys the Snake Entity
The huge metal construct swipes and smashes into Shall she is wounded and bloody by the blows it raises to finish her off , but she finds the weak spot and destroys the magic holding it together, ( she rolled a 20 to its 4)
It crumbles like the last Shalla staggering on to the door way
Joined by the rest of her party they fend of Vapor snakes as the hope to reach the door way
Rex charges and rips apart a snake near the door way
The party sees the door way perhaps they will survive
Rex is charged and again destroys a small Vapor snake
But is slain by one appearing behind him.
The party avenge there faithful hound
Shalla reaches the door and strike hard
It opens and they see the chance of escape
leaving the temple, Victory!
After game rolls and treasure, Tak the Barbarian will have to heal till after the next game to return, Lyra and Rex unfortunately succumbed to there wounds and , have to be replaced.
View: A good game the sole mechanics work excellent and it is not easy to win this, excellent addition with loads of scope for many adventures, a good fun game...
More to come ......
