Eagles And Weasels SIGNUP

Postby Muffin_Man » Thu Nov 15, 2018 1:16 pm

Following the colonization of Genoa, an alliance of families resisted the Roman rule, attempting to lead a rebellion to reinstate the previous leadership. This didn't go very well, and, after a series of humiliatingly crushing defeats, only a small outpost, shattered body guard and a bunch of peasants protect the head of one of the strongest families; the house of Tombeteau...

Image
The keep of Espére, the walls holding the biggest hope for revolution against the rule of the Borgions. Within reside the cobbled bodyguard and what few followers that could make it. Upon the rocky-based battlements stand Pierre Tombeteau and Jaques LaBuveur, leader of the guards of the keep and bodyguard.
Image
Pierre: This map shows the current location of all of our allies, and I am sad to say that, due to the mountain territories, they will be unable to provide help against the Legions.
Image
Jaques: This is indeed a terrible blow; but surely the terrain would stop our attackers as well?
Pierre: That is likely so, and even if a small force gets thr-
Image
Sniper: Enemy force sighted Captain! Over on the horizon!
Image
And indeed there was!
Image
Wolfgang:It appears that we have caught up these traitorous peaches scurrying back to their hole. Our orders from the Emperor are clear; destroy every remnant of resistance.
Image
Wolfgang: Prepare to advance upon the keep. For the glory of the New Roman Empire!
Legionaries: For the glory of the New Roman Empire!
Image
Jaques: Guards! To me! Ready to repel all enemies! The freedom of Genoa depends upon it!

Image
Welcome to Eagles and Weasels! This is my first Forum battle, so things may be a little rough. Nonetheless, I shall try to run it as smoothly as possible.
Available factions:
Guards: (baconquisador) Protect the keep and Pierre Tombeteu. If it is still in your possession in the next 9 turns, or if the Roman forces are destroyed, then you claim victory!
Peasants: (Scribonius) Help the Guards to claim victory!
New Roman forces: (Yours Truly) Take possession of the fort before the end of the 9 turns or completely eliminate all the Guards and Peasants to claim victory!
Secret Faction 1: (motorhead fan) Revealed at the end of turn 2
Secret Faction 2: (Bisbeedog) Revealed at the end of turn 4

List of forces:
Spoiler: show
Guards:
1 Musket guard
2 Sword guards
1 halberd guard
1 flintlock pistol guard
1 Knife guard (has stealth ability)
1 Sniper (has marksman ability)
Jaques LeBuveur (hero, grizzled soldier cliche), also has horse

New Roman forces:
12 Legionaries
1 Bombardier cannon (manned by field mechanic)
'La Rosa" raiding Zeppelin (manned by 1 crewman and one gunner crewman)
Major Tactician Wolfgang (hero, ruthless general cliche)

Peasants:
10 Peasants
Pierre Tombeteau (has leader ability)
Also have a horse.
(Peasant tip: there are weapons scattered around the keep that would prove useful.)

Other Battle field pics (i hope the quality is’nt too poor)
Spoiler: show

To make things more interesting, all the peasants and Pierre Tombeteau have 1d6 skill.

Okey dokey then. Jaques has the 'grizzled soldier' cliche, but Pierre is not a hero.

I've never done one of these before(have been lurking for a while though), so bear with me, and I would like the 2nd secret faction.

Since nobody else has spoken up, I'd like to run the Peasants. They should be good for some laughs. :warhead:

Soooo, does anyone want to take the New Romans? If they are not claimed soon, they will be made NPC...

Sadly I can't play in this one, but I wanted to say how great this map looks too. Very well done, and I look forward to seeing this battle play out.

No don't worry, I will take them as NPCs if it is too delayed already. I was planning to wait until Thursday, but if it is late, I might as well take them myself. If anyone else wants them later on, you are free to ask.
So therefore, it is time to:

Send In your Orders!(please).
