Temple of Doom

Finally getting a bit more organised for BOYL 2019. I'll be bringing along the Shrine of Rigg once more - this time for dungeoneering fun and games all day Sunday.

Image

The idea is to bring along a small party of would-be looters and see how you fare in the Shrine. I'll be gm'ing and controlling the resident Amazons, using the Shrine of Rigg scenario from the second Citadel Compendium along with 2nd ed rules. It'll be a night raid so stealth and tactics will be the order of the day! Noise and light will be important factors in how successful your burglary will be...

Image

Ideally players should limit themselves to 4 or 5 minis with nothing over a L10 hero or magic user. I can provide minis if need be and anyone wanting to play on easy mode could have a go with my Magnificent Sven set! (I procured Karlo Ustracutter after taking this pic but never got round to redoing the family photo! Oh and before you comment - Juggo's hair is now blue too ;))

Image

It's a big old shrine but I'm still hashing out how many players I could accommodate at one time.Two or three parties could be operating at the same time but it might be a better player experience to have the shrine to themselves for a timed slot - say an hour or so... I guess exactly how I run it will depend on the level of interest I get.

Image

Bragging rights will of course go to the player who carts off the most loot... or even just escapes alive!

Re: Temple of Doom

I'd love to join! I am assembling a party of Sea Elves, made with assorted Citadel and Marauder Elves, if that's acceptable.

Re: Temple of Doom

haha I was also just about to post to ask if I could bring my sea elves... Looks like there's some serious Elven colonialism afoot in Lustria ;)

Re: Temple of Doom

More than welcome both!

After all the Shrine of Rigg was built to commemorate the mythic union of Rigg, Amazon Goddess of War and Bloodshed, and Amex, Sea Elf God of Wealth and Happiness! According to the Amazon's creation myth, this was where Kalith, Mother of all Amazons was brought in to being.

I'd be interested to see what the motives these supposed pilgrims might be harboring... the theft of a particular religious object related to Amex for an unscrupulous High Elf collector? Or are they religious zealots, outraged at the mingling of the Amazon and Elf pantheon? Don't forget women, and particularly Elven women would be permitted to enter the temple as visitors - under guard of course!

I've had a few takers on FB as well so looks like I might run a morning and an afternoon session - 10am-1pm and 1pm till whenever we get kicked out!

Re: Temple of Doom

I'd like to join if there's space? I have a band of Slann adventurers looking for plunder.

Re: Temple of Doom

Yep - more than welcome both of you. Careful Vanloon - Amazons really don't like Slann! ;)

Well between here and Facebook that's ten players so far so I think I'll call that full up.

I'll split the game in to two separate sessions so there won't be too much elbow jostling with looting parties trying to get in to the Shrine! You lads all ok for the morning session? Wouldn't mind a fairly prompt start for 9.30-10am - hangover dependent ;)

My Slann shall have to be extra sneaky to avoid detection then!

Sunday morning works fine for me.

Great stuff!

Haha - definitely - the smack of wet, webbed feet on cold stone floors is unmistakable!
