Not managing to arrange a 'proper' game for various reasons, I had finished off a few more scenery bits recently and thought I'd have another solo bash at Frostgrave. Rather than play one of the solo scenarios, I rolled up two warbands - Zaleus the Summoner and Brankus the Enchanter and thought I'd just play a 'standard' game.. I may try a little series, taking these two warbands in head to head 'campaign'.. we'll see.
It was a fairly close fought affair, with Zaleus coming out on top with 3 of the 5 treasures. Although his apprentice was struck down by Renauld's crossbow (a natural 20), she survived. Both warbands escaped any 'serious' losses in fact.. Brankus lost one thug, but they don't count!
During the game I realise that I had picked a few of the same spells for the two opposing wizards, so that could have been better planned, but we'll see. Brankus has gained 1 level and learned a new spell from a Grimoire they found, whilst Zaleus jumped up 2 levels, improving a couple of existing spells.
|Stan and Cnut investigate an alleyway|
|Brankus in sullen mood|
|Zaleus commands a zombie to join Astrogoth fighting the skeleton|
|Izith about to catch a crossbow bolt badly|
|Stan and Cnut encounter two wild dogs|
|Aggie, Brankus' apprentice, looks over the scrapping bands|
|Having dealt with the dogs, Stand and Cnut are jumped by thugs|
|A snow troll wanders into the street, must have heard the fighting|
|Lucius and a construct are outnumbered by Zaleus' men|
|New britches for Ulf!|
