A Scavenger explores the woods with a metal detector...

Beep!


Image20190306_233658 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Looking for Ore,  or buried loot,  he starts digging...

Scavver: What the hell's this now?



Image20190306_233727 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

He unearths a Magikal Staff, Completely colorblind, he doesn't even realize that it's not blue, but Purple, an extremely rare power stone...


Image20190306_233749 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Scavver: Bah.. Hippy dippy garbage!..


Image20190306_233817 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
He trades the staff for some coin and supplies at a local junk dealer in Novgorod..

Image20190306_233844 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
And he puts it away for safe keeping, also not realizing what he's just obtained..

Fort Khrabrost

Svoboda Camp

Svoboda Radio: Ey! Get some fighters! There's an artifakt in the Lambda Cluster!.. If we can't get it for ourselves, lets go ruin someone elses day, boys!


Then... within minutes,  alarms blare all over the battle plates.. Military and Scientific faction bases light up with activity.. Basil is about to become a warzone...

Within minutes of the alert. Red vehicles start to enter the plate and beeline for the Trade post

Image20190307_003817 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Lots of heavily armed Soldiers disembark and surround the gate

Image20190307_003822 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The Boss of the trade post,  accompanied by his paltry security detail confront the visitors

Vorhut Confessor: A fine afternoon to you all!.  By the command of High Confessor Jericho, the Order seeks to confiscate an illegal device that has been traced to this location!
Boss: You'll do no such thing! We're a free trade center, and you're in violation of the treaty! Leave now!
Vorhut Confessor: Aha! I think you'll find that treaty of no use when all the other parties show up here, too!. Now hand it over!

The Trade center Boss argues with the Vorhut officer... Elsewhere..

An OSKOM Scout team approaches...


Image20190307_004811 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
With all of the parties that were supposed to protect the neutral trading post, seemingly invading the plate... Local traders, and passing Mercenaries take up arms to defend the post. If not them, who else?

Image20190307_004813 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
And stuck in the middle of all it, are Bob and Kast.



ALL ORDERS WILL BE DONE ON DISCORD, IN THE BATTLES CHANNEL. Generally when I start playing, I have little patience, so If people aren't around, I'll sub their turn to someone else.

this will be a little battle for me to get into the groove again.  The beauty of this scenario is that I'm going to give agency to the players to do what they want.  Whether that be fight over the artifakt, protect the town,  ignore the artifakt and attack other locations or groups.. Whatever.

FACTIONS

Novgorod Defenders - I'll NPC these guys
Scrap Palace Scavvers
Vorhut Order
OSKOM
Syndikat
Krieger Clan

Wait a moment... What "Discord" are you talking about? You mean... that there is like a Discord server that the stuff is posted to? Why did no one tell me of this?

The Black Sorcerer summons a fire daemon(ette?)

Unable to wait for the action.. the Legion troops start shooting and burning down the forest as they charge.. At least they're killing something.

Bob and Kast run for their cars

Image20190309_141034 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr


Image20190309_141056 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

They pull them back away from the road and toward the Vorhut

Image20190309_141156 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The Confessor  yells to the crowd
Confessor: "Since you persist in refusing the will of Purity, you will all be judged!


Image20190309_141429 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The troops clear the way and a truck starts barreling down the road

Image20190309_141443 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
It's about to run over the Confessor..

Image20190309_141453 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
He successfully dodges it... What a showboat

The truck rams into the entrance, plowing into the Mayor, and one of his guards.. a third jumps out of the way
CRITFAIL - The Vorhut Trooper on the back planned to shoot people once they entered... but he falls out of the truck on impact

Image20190309_141759 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Vorhut troops and vehicles charge the gate
Confessor: ATTACK!



Image20190309_142148 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Image20190309_142237 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The APC MG shoots

Image20190309_142303 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Krieger troops pile onto their Vehicle and head for the Palace

Image20190309_142703 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
When they arrive, their officer shouts at the gates. Attempting to persuade them into joining forces.

Krieger Officer: Hey!, Scavvers! The Black Legion's come to town! If you don't want to get burned alive by those bastards, then you better give us a hand!.  Or else stay out of our way


Image20190309_143404 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Persuasion failed

There is no reasoning with these isolationist jerks. A muzzle flash pops from the embraisure, and a Krieger trooper is shot off the vehicle

Syndikat Operatives start the game in Stealth.   Stealth rules in spoiler
Spoiler: show
Stealth Rules

Units in stealth, are invisible to all other players. Players cannot metagame by bombing their locations or moving troops towards them.  

To catch a unit in stealth, Line of sight must be made.  If the stealth unit is in the open, No roll is necessary

Otherwise, if a unit is in an obstructed area, like partially concealed, Then to attempt to get line of sight, the two sides roll against each other to determine if they're spotted.

Players cannot metagame by moving troops towards them with the intention of spotting them.  To even attempt a move, they must first roll against each other, and then roll again to spot individual units.

Once spotted,  the unit is out of stealth for the rest of the game,  Stealth also breaks if they attack anyone.


Image20190309_143639 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The first guy sneaks past OSKOM and climbs the ladder


Image20190309_143723 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Another, sneaks by too

Image20190309_143824 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The other two simply take cover and watch OSKOM. Ready to defend if spotted

A scavenger runs to his bike

Image20190309_143936 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

He takes off, towards Novgorod... to maybe ask for help..

Image20190309_144005 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Except he gets stuck..

Image20190309_144211 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Image20190309_144243 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

CRITFAIL - He falls off the roof.  And takes enough damage to break his neck. Dead

Image20190309_144340 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

More local guns shoot at Vorhut,  Amazingly they miss again..

A bridge extends across the buildings..

The OSKOM patrol ignores the Scavengers and Krieger fighting each other,  The Scavengers shot first, so they don't care what happens to them.

Image20190309_145711 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
The truck pushes the little trike out of the way..

Image20190309_145808 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The OSKOM troops gather around the truck and enter a defensive stance while the officer yells over a bullhorn on the outskirts of Novgorod
OSKOM Officer: Attention Residents! This is the Civil Defense Kommand! . Stay in your homes and do not interfere! You will not be harmed if you do not interfere!
