Anyway, that's not what I am here to talk about today. Today I am planning to write a brief report with how things are going with the local 'Faux campaign I am running.
So week 1 saw the following scenarios flipped
Theft- Loot the Hideout
Squatter's Rights - Our Land
Escourt- Kill the Escourt
Lucas had been playing for the least amount of time so made the decision to pick last or first. He chose last, which meant I picked first seeing as I had the most experience. I chose to kill the Escourt, figuring that's what Seamus would do! Next up, Vince chose to Loot the hideout. Paj chose Squatter's rights, Ben chose to face him. Finally Lucas chose to face Vince. This meant I was left with a default win and gained 'Infiltration' (I guess from the resseructed Escourt) which meant I picked one model in the enemy crew to be on negative flips against Seamus for the next game only.
Paj vs Ben turned into a landslide, mainly because Paj gave up once he failed to kill teddy in a single charge with Schill. Teddy flurried Von Schill twice in several turns and killed him... which meant Ben couldn't score for spring the trap. Final score 7-0 to Ben and he claims 'From the Shaddows' on Lilith for the next round.
Vince vs Lucas was a really close game, by all accounts with some quite spectacular moments. Yan Lo lightening dances Nino to put him into base contact with Yin... only to take loads of damage when he is forced to jump off the ledge! Abuella absolutely ruins a Ashigaru with her sawn off. The pistelero couple become the star of the show... not really for much reason other than we gave them names and Vince kept putting 'El Major' on them. At the end Lucas' Kaimanu is fanned into safety clutching some jewls in his jaw, meaning Lucas won by a single point! He claims Companion on Yan Lo.
You can see below the updated map with our associated territory acquisitions.
I, using Seamus and represented in green, stick with the theme and claim a brothel.
Ben, fielding purple Lilith, claims tobacco? Whatever, I assume it's because it's close to Paj's (Yellow, Schill) Territory
Yan Lo, clearly found of his new (if now somewhat covered in lion slobber) gems, claims a mine.
Vince (Red, Perdita) clearly had an issue convincing her posse to leave the opium den...
We also, of course, wrote our fixed lists, which I will now post below. These will not change until we capture our first monopolly (i.e. I need two more brothels to have the most of the 5 on the map)
+Tormento de Plomo
Miguelle the Pistelero
Jose the Pistolero
+Shirt comes off
+Command the Graves
Yin the Pangalangalanglangalangalan
+pull of the grave
Obsidian Talons (he originally put it on a young nephilim, which can't take upgrades)
+Red Chapel Killer
+Bag of Tools
+Not too banged up
That's it from this week. Hopefully soon we'll have another campaign entry from Colin who's lovely wife has just had a baby so *apparently* that's more important than Malifaux. He'll come crawling back soon anyway. Expect another report next week regardless.
