The Cabal of Eight Pt.21: Blood Red

Posted on June 21st, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

As splinters of wood sprayed into the dim, fire lit chamber the semi-transparent form of the red imp was thrown from the remains of the shattered door.  Its diminishing screams continued to echo as it fell back down into hell.

Bolt Action Road to Victory: A Beginner View

Posted on June 19th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Hey everyone! Seamus here with another community article for your reading enjoyment. Today’s article is from a newcomer to Bolt Action who took the bold step of using the Road To Victory campaign rules for his first foray into the game. One of the best parts of this system is that it really shakes up the normal run of rulebook missions and cookie-cutter army lists by using dice rolls on tables to drive which units you can add to your force. Another great strength of the system is that you or your opponent may end up with a really strong unit, which then means you’ll both have to be on top of your game to deal with less balanced forces. So, without further ado, I present to you a newcomer’s experience on The Road to Victory.

Gornix (played by Gil) the salt-lotus wizard was huddled over his makeshift lab and deep in study over a length of scroll cut for scratch as he continued his formulations.

As he faced a High Born Sailor with paper and quill in hand Szoosha (played by Isis) was still in a groggy stupor and speechless. Naga Sailor (in Split-Tongue): “Ah! You’re awake. Your friend said that…” Szoosha: “Where the HELL am I!? AM I AT SEA!?” The young elementalist shot erect and took a look […]

It was two days after their return from the Under-City Vault and the young mages were on their way to Bumble’s house in the Western Cliffs District of the city of Ezmer.

The young mages had split their take from the Under-City Vaults and looked to hide the undivided booty someplace in the cabal room. After thoroughly searching the chamber Gornix (played by Gil) was able to find a small alcove behind a false brick in the hearth. They stashed a bag of gems (3 diamonds, 3 […]

All of them gathered into the central chamber of the under-city vaults cast in the strange white glow of the blood red gem known as the Dungeon Heart. None of them wanted to stay behind for caution’s sake in case the others should discover any treasures apart from the McGuffin. This chamber, the gem heart’s […]

They stood around the smoking wreckage of the animated bronze brazier. The accursed thing had blasted them with fire missiles and slammed its metal body against them like a bludgeon. Athfonia (Played by Perla) had taken up the large flanged bronze mace (see Cabal of Eight Pt.12: The Under-City Vaults Pt.2). Fauna (Played by Jenn) […]

The Underlings, after a confusing and circuitous route, led the young mages to the goal. They were in a large sewer tunnel on a narrow walkway above a flowing river of filth. They showed the mages a small hole bored through the slimy brick and mortar wall. Beneath was a thick oak double-door its bronze […]
