    Enemies with red backgrounds are aggressive, and will begin moving towards the nearest kingdom hero 1 space per turn as soon as one enters within a 1 area range.
    Blue background: defensive, will never move.
    White: Will move only to attack adjacent kingdom hero.

    Remember you must pause and draw a fate card the first time a character moves into the same area or adjacent space as an empire general (exceptions: Black Knight, King of the Abyss, Emperor).

    Fate:
    Lyla- Love at first sight: When a character of the opposite sex moves adjacent to them, they become that character's ally.

    Donia 1/4 health

    Allies

    Elf King: (Irwin) + (Marianne) +2 battle die, reroll 2 dice, misses count as hits

    Cards
    (Zyne) Master's Armor- ongoing: Gain 1 die when defending
    (Godfried) Balanced Weapons- Gain 1 battle die.


    Resources

    Elf King: 12 (Elvenshae)
    Josephine: 0 (Phyphor)
    Donia: 12 (Daemonis)
    Annelie: 0 (Preda)
    Zyne: 8 (AustinP0027)
    Godfried: 2 (NotoriusBEN)
    Princess Cornelia: 6

    Turn 8

    Stage III has been reached. If the Princess does not reach the capital alive by the end of turn 10, the game ends in defeat.
    How had the Princess' march managed to make it so far? What started as a suicide run had picked up and managed to carve their way through half the occupied territory towards the capital. How did this ad hoc army fight through the imperial forces that had managed to route Astoria's army in its prime?

    The scribes analyzing captured documents painted the picture. The invasion had cost the Imperials more than they first thought. The remainder of their forces were dispersed and focused on pacification. The larger legions had been broken up as rivalries between their generals drove them to isolate themselves and greedily carve out their own new fiefdoms. None of them imagined as concentrated a counter offensive from the remaining unoccupied territories.

    The surprise was gone now. Already couriers had been intercepted showing renewed coordination between the enemy commanders. Their forces were now pulling up stakes and converging on the advancing Princess.

    Far more terrible was the report from the last remaining long range outposts. Dust clouds had been spotted on the roads to Legania. Fresh reserves were marching up from the Imperial capital, as large as the initial invasion force. This time there was no full strength Astorian army to stand against them.

    Victory had to come now. A last drive to cut off the head before the reinforcements arrived.

    There were also the new reports from the former capital. Strange oily clouds were seen forming over the royal palace. Storm season was still months away, and no breeze seemed to budge the mass from its position over the castle.


    Event (Stage III)

    Total War: (ongoing)- All empire characters except the emperor become aggressive.

    Dark Rituals: (ongoing)- The princess loses 1 health at the start of each princess step. Kingdom characters on the same area as the princess may take this damage instead of her.


    (next event via Donia scouting)
    Dark Awakening: (ongoing)- The combat value of the Emperor is doubled.

    hey @MrBody those troops were supposed to attack me before the chancellor moved in. I was next to them, those 3 should have attacked me.

    ok... so I have 5troops, plus my weapons which gives me 6 dice. The troops are attacking into the grasslands so that is a zero modifier.
    Ok, six dice. Hit 4+, Miss 2-3, Hurt on 1

    edit** ok so 2 enemy troops are dead, 1 miss, didn't take any damage in the fight.**

    damn, that next card is gonna be bad news... demon king, vampire, lyla, chancellor and gregorio push him to 10 combat value...
    Lyla is a flip, and chancellor will die, but he's still at 6 combat value.

    I'm going to use a support card to hurt the chancellor a bit, and the rest of my turn gathering supplies, so I'll be at 4 supply. not enough to attack on turn8. If I killed chancellor on turn 8 (not happening) I'd have to move 3 spaces to get anywhere possible to heal on turn 9...
    I think I am out of helping the assault on the capital in any way. also... I'm only expecting 3 attacks at the moment... turn 8 chancellor attack, a turn 9 attack from myself, and turn9 chancellor attack.

    is it possible for josephine to move up 1 space and let annalie get into the stronghold as well? or are we too tight on resources and troops to waste actions?

    edit**
    good news is... we dont have to kill the chancellor first we just can't win the game while he is on the board. of course... if the princess beats the emperor, that means next turn *all* those troops are attacking her.

    Okay, @Preda is Annelie, down in the Temple of the Dark God, and has no supplies and no troops.

    I'm assuming he's got no interesting cards, either, so ...
    1. Gather Supplies (3, I think?)
    2. Gather Supplies (3 more?)
    3. Recruit 1 Soldier
    4. (Free) Ship all of that up to Josephine

    Anything wrong with that?

    Yup looks fine. Preda only has 1 card and I don't think it would do anything here.

    @AustinP0027

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Let’s start with a card

    1. Draw a card

    Ok, then I have 8 resources so I should be able to move to Lyla.

    2. Move NE (-1)
    3. Move E (-1)
    4. Move E (road spot) (-1)


    End with 5 resources.

    I'm now in same Hex as Lyla, so she becomes my ally.

    @NotoriusBEN for next

    Yup. Keep in mind the soldiers stay there though and will move to attack you this turn.

    Also each move only costs you 1 resource, as you only have 1 soldier and there's no rough terrain.

    Well, Zyne can retreat so I don't think it matters too much if he gets attacked

    Godfried Turn
    1. Gather Resource (2+1 = 3)
    2. Gather Resource (3+1 = 4)
    3. Play Fire Tactics: Remove 2 soldiers or deal 1 damage to a character on an adjacent space.

    Godfried has 5 troops and 4 supply
    Remove 2 soldiers in Chancellor's army. Chacellor now has 4 troops

    (chancellor had 4 troops, then fated enemy added 1 troop for 5.
    3 soldiers attacked me during last turn, 2 died.
    chancellor moves with 5 troops to space with remaining troop for 6 troop total.
    chancellor loses 2 troops to my incendiary attack)

    @elvenshae for next to move.

    edit** i've waited *months* to make this post.

    Well, shit. I can't one-shot the Vampire ... 4 Dice for troops, +3 Attacking, +2 Twins, -2 Mountains = 7 dice, and I need at least 9 to one-shot him.

    I also can't afford to spend 6 resources twice to get past him.

    Are we sure I'm next? Because it would be really cool if Josephine could ship me a bunch of resources ...
