Caravanserai - The Dangers of an Escort Scenario

Tue, 12/03/2019 - 02:21
Haldor, a Mirholme Warrior from Talomir Tales Distant Shores went Carousing and landed a Job Offer - Escort. Sounded easy enough to me,  escort 3 NPC Civilians to another area of the map. Haldor hired a couple of other Warriors  and a Caster to help out. Resolving the first PEF showed me why Escort could be the most dangerous Encounter in Talomir Tales.

First concern is that Civilians aren't very good in combat as they can only melee. These NPCs are unarmed so when it's melee time they would count as non-lethal versus lethal armed enemies. Usually their Rep is low; 3 and sometimes Rep 4.

Now the real problem happens when you roll to see how may NPC s you run into, something I had never realized before! The Civilians count as part of the Band and that increases the number of enemy you might meet. In this fight I had 7 in Haldor's Band, but 3 are weak Civilians. They ran into 7 Orcs.

After placing the enemies on the table I rolled for Action and realized that if the enemy acted first they would charge all of Haldor's Band one on one; this meant the 3 Civilians would be facing Orcs in melee and and probably would go Out of the Fight or worse. All had AC 2, were unarmed to start with and fighting AC 4 Orcs with higher Rep could spell doom.

Luckily Haldor Activated first. I figured if the 4 non-Civilians in the Band could engage and defeat 4 Orcs, the remaining ones would have to attack Haldor and the Warriors as they would be between the Orcs and the Civilians. 

Enough talk! On to the fight.
***********I use triangles from Litko that lets me track the Reps of the figures. Not needed but good to use. 

After the fight Haldor had 1 dead Warrior and 1 Out of the Fight who remains Out of the Fight until the Encounter is over!  Should have hired a Healer as he can possibly fix the Out of the Fight Character. Lucky for me there was only one PEF to resolve.Watch for more Caravanserai Bat Reps in the next week or two,

Talomir Tales - Caravanserai Coming Later this Month

Sat, 11/09/2019 - 02:23

Haldor seemed to have worn out his welcome in Demeskeen. Or at least in his mind he had and that was good enough. He surveyed the tavern. Kurinthian Warriors, Barylistani Caravan Guards, Demeskeen Army and he swore that little lady in the corner was a Wererat. Well, not right now of course. Not in public, but get her alone and who could say.  “Yes, it’s time to go. I wonder what Brigana is like this time of year?”
************Talomir Tales - Caravanserai lets you travel the fantasy world of Talomir as a Caravan Guard. Or maybe you want to lead a Caravan getting paid well for your services. Or maybe you just want to join a Caravan for protection, opportunity or adventure. 
Caravanserai contains the Talomir Tales Core Rules as well as 16 linked Encounters.Look for it later this month.

Launches November 1st!10 Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Historical & Zombie Games  Learn One Set of Game Mechanics - Play Many GamesThe more you buy the cheaper the price per game.  In fact, you can  buy multiples of the same game! Because our printer doesn't force us into buying a minimum number of games we can pass the savings on to you. It's a great way to get a great price. That makes sense, but what if you don't want 10 games for yourself? Go in with your friends! You and your friends can make one pledge and divide the games up when they arrive.  Since we charge for postage after the project closes you can have your games sent to different places.

These game may share the same titles as our miniatures rules, but they are different!
