So here we have the last game of 2017 played and the first post of 2018 written. This was another Ambull scenario, this time using the Shadow War: Armageddon rules.
Dai had brought two kill teams, I had my Ambulls and monsters. The table and all the scenery was provided by Great Escape Games in Sacramento. I had never been there before and enjoyed myself very much. Nicely stocked store, tons of room for play in the back.
I think I need to do an analysis on close combat, the Ambulls are proving very deadly, and on the probability of random monsters showing up. What with the Old World Army challenge taking up a lot of my time and energy I was also not quite as prepared as I should have been. Cheat sheets, handouts and some tables for various things would be good to have.
That being said , Dai and densmol were great sports and I think we all had fun. See what you think.
Special additions to the scenario were that Felipe and his "buckets" could be grabbed in lieu of the Male Ambull. I used the artillery scatter dice again for the movement of all monsters as well as Felipe and Chochtoxtoc. It may seem odd at times, but I think it adds an interesting element to the game. Aside from figuring out close combat and stats for all the other monsters, I need to figure out how to randomly generate monsters better. We agreed that rolling doubles wasn't frequent enough, we then switched to bullseye on the artillery deviation die, which was too much. Anyway, I think we need more civilians to get in the way and maybe random gangs to pop up and start something.
Hope you had a good holiday break and are ready to get back to the serious task of hobbying in 2018.
Thanks for looking.
