Krieg! What a hole...

I had a bit of time to write. Didn't really roll, but since it involved the area my Scions were in, I figured I could include their contribution to the fight, based of what others wrote

@ Bob: nice piece. If you like to get involved a bit, the Askaris could inform your Scions about the ruins in the north of the jungle. But of course only if you have time for it.


Edit: the Crusade is pretty cool. My mini of Rasul has an augmetic leg and eye and an arm in a sling as if it was broken. From now on I'll have a cool story how that happened.

Thanks! And my next action involved sending some Scions out and about to look for targets, that would fit pretty well in all that, the only issue is that I am not sure when I'll get time to write it all up.

Nice perspectives from the Siege of Fort Macherius! Nice to see you get back in the game Bob.

Your roll has been sent, let the battle continue!

Kharne, Oldmate? So you want to do something this turn?

Hey Irish:
were exactly are the Drukhari now? You mentioned ruins in your post, are they in the ones to the north on the Avonmere Coast or the ones east in the Sherburn Groto?

Oldmates guys are in pursuit and as they have crossed the innisrock mountains last turn, it looks like it won't be too long until we have the first situation were two PC forces meet each other. How do we want to handle this?
My rough idea would be: both players give me a number, I roll one dice and we compare both given numbers.
1. Both results +/- 1 stages (so minor vs. normal victory etc): undecive battle, depending on the exact result it is undecicive because both managed to keep their stuff together or undecicive because both blundered
2. Both results +/- 2 stages (for example victory vs. minor defeat): the defeated can choose if he stays in the region but suffers losses or if he retreats in a neighboring region with less losses. Extent of losses depents on his own result
3. more than +/- 2 stages (so Major Victory vs. minor defeat etc.): the winner can choose if the defeated has to retreat or has to stay were he is and suffer losses.

In general I would say:
no named character kills unless the player controlling them agrees
No total force wipes (the most extreme, when Major Victory meets major defeat should be in the ballpark of losing 1/3 of your forces)

What's your opinion on that?

My intention was for the dark eldar to use gates in the ruins to go to the hive world. However I realized now I probably should have rolled for this. I did get a minor victory but idk

However if Oldmate wishes to pounce on me at the ruins I would be up to that. (Avonmere coast)

My Drukhari would need to eliminate the tau forces stationed outside the ruins though

as you both have minor victories how about as a compromise: The Drukhari break through the T'au and manage to reach their gate, but they have Oldmates dudes right on their heels. For Tertius PDF and Population it looks like the Imperials have turned the Xenos to flee, even if the Kabal did not really take casualties.

The local moral would rise, afterwards Oldmate can decide if he wants to try and attack the Tau hunter cadre that was bruised by the Kabal breaking through to the gate, wants to try and pursuit the Drukhari or return to the cities.

Does that sound fair?

I was not aware that Oldmate was pushing past the Nightfort, If I did I would have stuck around

I thought he was merely fortifying it and waiting for me to approach

Part One is up for both myself and Oldmate. The tai find themselves trapped between a rock and a hard place. Part two will follow as the Drukhari meet the Commonwealth head on!

Thanks I am working on an appropriate force size. I am thinking a mainly IG force with some Astartes supporting.

Sure, some Astartes would be nice. So far we have two IG and one Scion force.
Looks like the Imperials get the upper hand, Irish

I would say choose either astartes or Imperial guard. To bring both would unbalance the crusade imo

We already have two guard regiments and a Knight house in support. To add astartes and another regiment would make things a bit difficult for the xenos which is mainly me and the npc tau.

One thing to possibly spice it up though: Your imperial force, whatever exactly it is, does not necessarily have to follow the same goals as the currently present IG regiments. Might be they have their own agenda that could even put them into conflict with the others or at least give them more of the feel of an additional side in the conflict instead of further reinforcement for the Imperials.

They could for example be allies of the Admech dudes on Kopernika, which are very passionate about securing the strange alien tech the Orks found and the ruins.

Interesting. Hmm I was thinking very limited Astartes in the first place. Like no more than squad strength just because that is how my Bloodmoon Hunters Operate. But you guyed had an interesting idea of having Admech supporting objective. Which gives me an idea of doing an Skitarii Maniple, with Felinid Auxiliary bodyguards and the Bloodmoon Hunter squad whose purpose is to acquire that same tech for Forgeworld Mjorn. ( I figure since there is already knights you would not want more. Hehe)
