Steamforged Games September??? newsletter…featuring some new Guild Ball rosters…

September 2017 Newsletter: New Friends, New Rosters

A new Age of Science is upon us: called forth by the return of a Pirate King who’s slipped the Strings of the Spirit Weaver to emerge from the Scarlet Circle. Exploding onto the pitch September 15th. 

The Butcher’s Guild: The Scarlet Circle
The Fishermen's Guild: The Changing Tides
The Butcher’s Guild: The Scarlet Circle
“I remember once we celebrated to see the Master Butcher dethroned, and absent from the pitch. How wrong we were. What came next was even worse.”
— Obulus, Mortician’s Guild
Inheritor of the Master Butcher’s throne, Fillet is one of the deadliest individuals in the Empire. Unmatched in combat, she delights in playing with her opponents – slashing and bleeding them dry.

Like any Butcher’s team, Fillet’s side will punish their opponents mercilessly, toying with them before landing the final blow. All the while beating the opponents players into the ground until the perfect opportunity to score arises.

The bloody dance of death, this set includes: a ball, 6 player cards, bases, and 6 players: Fillet, Truffles, Meathook, Veteran Brisket, Tenderiser, Veteran Ox.

CAN YOU CUT IT LEADING THESE BLOODY BUTCHERS?

  • Coaches looking for a no-nonsense, high-damage team will enjoy the Butchers.
  • Fillet excels at dealing damage and taking out opposing players.
  • Whether you are new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this blunt, destructive team.
The Mortician’s Guild: Strings of the Spirit Weaver
The Mortician’s Guild: Strings of the Spirit Weaver
“Fear the Spirit Weaver more than anyone – for how can you fail to be intimidated by one who can direct the spirits of the dead to do her bidding?”
— Honour, Mason’s Guild

Aloof and cold, Scalpel carefully observes the opposition before before unleashing a furious assault in order to gain control of their souls. A practitioner of the forbidden black magic of Spirit Weaving, Scalpel is sure to strike fear into the hearts of the opposition.

Unorthodox and unpredictable; The opposition will struggle to stop a team that can reanimate their fallen teammates, score goals and manifest take-outs from the ether. Coaches who enjoy pulling their opponent’s strings are sure to relish the chance to master Scalpel.

Empowered by dark magics, this set includes: a ball, 6 player cards, bases, and 7 miniatures: Scalpel, Vileswarm, Veteran Graves, Casket, Bonesaw, Brainpan & Memory.

WILL YOU PULL THE STRINGS FOR THESE MYSTERIOUS MORTICIANS?

  • Coaches that prefer a more cunning approach will want to unearth this team.
  • Scalpel excels at stealing the ball and finishing off wounded players.
  • Whether you are new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this devious, manipulative team.
The Fisherman’s Guild: Pirate’s Return
The Fisherman’s Guild: Pirate’s Return
“I’ve heard all the rumours lad. Corsair’s a drunk – he’s not match fit! Appearances can be deceiving young blood – under his leadership we’re rebuilding, being shaped into his team again – ready for anything.”
— Greyscales, Fisherman’s Guild

Once the ambitious and charismatic skipper of his crew, Corsair was brought low by a brutal attack orchestrated by the Butcher’s Guild that sent him crashing out of the team. However cutthroat pirates like Corsair don’t fold sails easily – the exile has returned, desperate to reclaim his mantle.

Corsair’s team is as fluid as the sea; able to deposit enemy players where they wish while cutting away crucial opposition. Their flexibility gives them a dangerous goal-scoring threat, and coaches are sure to love the tricks they can use to dominate the board.

The return of the cutthroat exile, this set includes: a ball, 6 player cards, bases, and 6 players: Corsair, Tentacles, Sakana, Veteran Siren, Hag, Jac.

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO LEAD THESE CUT-THROAT PIRATES?

  • Coaches interested in high scoring  strategies will enjoy the Fishermen.
  • Corsair dominates the middle of the pitch and is extremely resilient, the perfect Captain for Coaches of all skill levels.
  • Whether you are new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this high control, high goal scoring team.

The Alchemist’s Guild: The New Age of Science
The Alchemist’s Guild: The New Age of Science
“This woman isn’t like Midas, or what we have known before. She is a true scientific breakthrough, not some loon trying to prove the impossible”
— Calculus, Alchemist’s Guild

Master of alchemical destruction, Smoke controls the field by directing corrosive and fiery blasts around to manipulate the opposition’s game-plan. She has the perfect formula to devastate the opposition, all the while refining her own team’s chemistry.

Truly terrifying to encounter on the field, these alchemists will cripple their opposition’s health and momentum with poison and fire, while augmenting their own powerful abilities. Experienced coaches will relish the chance to unlock the mysteries of this amazingly versatile team.

The cutting edge of scientific advancement, this set includes: a ball, 6 player cards, bases, and 6 players: Smoke, Naja, Veteran Katalyst, Venin, Compound, Crucible.

DO YOU HAVE THE FORMULA TO CONTAIN THESE EXPLOSIVE ALCHEMISTS?

  • Coaches that want a team specialized in traps and damage over time will love the Alchemist’s. 
  • Smoke is able to boost her team’s abilities while damaging the opposition.
  • Whether you are new to Guild Ball or just looking to pick up a new Guild, this set is the best way to get started with this unorthodox, unpredictable team.

Introducing the Farmers Guild for Steamforged Games Guild Ball…

The Farmer’s Guild: The Honest Land
The Farmer’s Guild: The Honest Land 
“Farming is a senseless pursuit. You sow what you may reap, then you reap what you may sow. Senseless.” 
— Obulus, Mortician’s Guild

Honest as a day’s work, Grange is no country bumpkin. Filled with unflinching resolve and unbreakable constitution, he’s just a little rough around the edges. When trouble crops up, he’ll plant himself to face it head-on.

Grange is all about grit: cultivating strategies planted at the start of a game, he waits for his plans to mature before reaping the fruits of his labor.  Strong communities are built around food we trust to nourish our bodies, and this Guild Ball roster is no different. Emboldened by their sturdy captain, his resilient team works hard to reap what they sow. Patient coaches looking for a Guild that plays more like a family than a team will enjoy the hearty Farmers.

Contents: 6 players (Grange, Peck, Windle, Bushel, Harrow, Jackstraw), Ball (pumpkin), Goal Token (a millstone), 3D Terrain Piece (pile of baskets), tokens and health dials for all players
Notes: Pre-assembled PVC
 

  • The Farmer’s Guild has an entirely new play style that coaches will want to experience featuring the unique reaping and sowing mechanics. 
  • The Farmers ‘plant’ harvest Markers throughout the turn to ‘reap’ later on for huge in-game benefits
  • In a world of bad guys, Farmers are the good guys that win through hard work and elbow grease.With a complete roster ready to hit the pitch, this team is the perfect way for a coach to to take the pitch as quickly as possible.

Farmer’s Guild Dice
The Fishermen's Guild: The Changing Tides
Farmer’s Guild Dice
 
“Roll out the hay bales! We’ve got some workhorses to feed.”
— Bushel, Farmer’s Guild
If you want to keep your focus on the pitch then you’re going to need a decent set of dice to roll. And the Farmer’s Guild have provided dice that are the cream of the crop. Crucial for those decisive moments, the sight of a faction emblem heralds another step on the road to victory. With 10 lovely, orange marbled dice you’ll never need to stop the action. These dice are truly befitting of hardworking harvester.

Contents: 10x Farmer’s Guild Dice

Unboxing – Dark Souls the Board Game (Part Four)

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

In part one we looked at the main components from the box, in part two we looked at the rank and file creatures and in part three saw the monstrous boss and sub-boss our heroes will be fighting…now lets look at the heroes…

First a brief introduction courtesy of the game manufacturers…
Dark Souls™ – The Board Game is a strategically challenging, deeply immersive combat exploration game for 1-4 players set in the Dark Souls™ universe. Players choose from a number of core character classes and explore dangerous locations full of monsters, treasures, and deadly boss fights.

Designed specifically for the Dark Souls™ universe and introducing a number of innovative gameplay mechanics, with world-class miniatures faithful to the rich universe, this game delivers an experience that captures the very essence of the original video games.

You can see larger versions of the pictures by clicking on them and they’re at a high enough resolution so you can get a good idea of the level of detail.

Here are the heroes you can select from to play as and some comparison pictures of them vs. the various in game enemies.

Knight

Warrior

Herald

Assassin

Dark Souls Heroes – Size Comparison

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

You can see larger versions of the pictures by clicking on them and they’re at a high enough resolution so you can get a good idea of the level of detail.

The creatures your heroes will be battling against are iconic enemies from the Dark Souls video game and are roughly divided into Bosses, Sub-Bosses and some ‘Rank and File’ enemies. Each one has their own stat card while the more powerful ones also have cards related to a number of special attacks at their disposal. I’ve also (where possible) included pictures of the equivalent creatures from the video game to give you some basis for comparison.

Gargoyle

Titanite Demon

Boreal Outrider Knight

Winged Knight

Ornstein and Smough

Dancer of the Boreal Valley

We’ll look at the player characters next time as well as some scale comparisons between them and their enemies…

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Though (as shown below) you get multiples of these models I’ve only done close-ups of one of each type as the duplicates are identical…

Hollow Soldier

Crossbow Hollows

Large Hollow Soldiers

Silver Knight Swordsman

Silver Knight Greatbowman

Sentinels

We’ll look at the Sub-Bosses and Bosses next time…

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Posted on May 15th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

This was pretty much an impulse buy based purely on the look of the miniatures rather than having any real familiarity with the video game on which it’s based so any comparisons between the two will have to be done by any game fans reading this rather than me…

Dark Souls: The Board Game
It came in a box…unsurprisingly…
…This was a bit of a surprise however…
Dark Souls: The Board Game – Booklet
The game comes with an instruction booklet containing all the rules you’ll need to play a game as well as a section focusing on running a campaign rather than a one-off adventure. There’s artwork on the majority of the pages which is a nice touch and the rules are well explained in both word and diagram form. Here are some sample pages to give you an idea…

Dark Souls: The Board Game – Dice and Tokens
The box contains a handy container for the cards necessary to play the game though once unwrapped they do slide about a bit so some elastic bands or bags might be an idea.
There’s far to many cards to show you them all but I will show close-ups of the cards for the various creatures in their own feature…
…there’s also some dice and cubes to use as markers…
…as well as card tokens and some dials that you’ll need to assemble yourself…
Once assembled the dials look like this…there’s some clear plastic pieces that clip through the middle in order to hold them together and allow them to rotate…there’s also nowhere to store these properly in the box once they’re assembled so if you don’t want them rattling around the box then a bag of some kind is probably a good ides…

Dark Souls: The Board Game – Game Board
The game tiles are sturdy enough and well detailed as well as being double-sided. The ‘bonfire’ tile shown first below is your home base and the rest are the locations for your various adventures. Here’s pictures of both sides of them…

Dark Souls: The Board Game – Miniatures
The miniatures are surprisingly detailed for board game pieces so they’ll get their own detailed look in part two…

The latest Guild Ball news from Steamforged Games…

From the lure of gold to the shadow of a tyrant, it’s never been easier to find your Guild and hit the pitch. Friday, July 21 four more expanded starter sets are coming to a game store near you! Creepy and controlling undertakers, nefarious mercenaries, explosive alchemists, primal hunters—which playstyle fits you?
The Alchemist’s Guild: The Lure of Gold

The Alchemist’s Guild: The Lure of Gold
MSRP: £50  $75  € 65  $100 AUD
“You wish for some wisdom on the Alchemists? Stay clear of the green smoke and get ready to run when the flasks start to fly.”
— Obulus, Morticians’ Guild
Roiling inside Midas is an unquenchable desire for power. Driven to madness by his acrid ambitions, he’s quick to exploit the chaos of flames and smoke on the pitch. At all costs, avoid his touch—it dooms all to the burdens of ruin.

Midas and his Alchemists engulf the pitch in deadly fumes and flames. These toxic effects quickly choke team movement, letting Midas score with his deceptive speed. Coaches who want to lick opponents with the fires of aggressive positioning will enjoy maiming their opponents with this toxic team.

The Lure of Gold is the team for you if…

  • Flasks, flames, poison, and alchemy are just a few of your favorite things.
  • You want a captain who’s a constant threat on the pitch and isn’t afraid to brag about it. 
  • You want to cover the pitch in puddles of poison, clouds of smoke, walls of flame AND coach a robot butler.

The Hunter’s Guild: Blessed of the Sun Father
Blessed of the Sun Father

The Hunter’s Guild: Blessed of the Sun Father
“The Hunter’s Guild is dangerous. Each has lived a life of tracking, pursuing, and killing beasts far more feral and dangerous than you have ever seen. They bring a different set o’ skills to the game.”
– Greyscales, Fisherman’s Guild
A bestial captain with untamed power, Theron strikes with the frenzy of a cornered beast. Tempered by the hardships of war, his primal wrath pushes him to endure and survive. He lives for the thrill of the hunt. Every chase into dense forest leads his prey to face their brutal end.

Theron’s Hunters are a rabid pack. Only when their opponent is most vulnerable will they pounce. Using traps and thick forests, they control the flow of the game by herding opponents directly into danger for brutal take-outs. Patient coaches looking for a fast pack of players to ensnare their prey will enjoy the fury of these Hunters.

Blessed of the Sun Father is the team for you if…

  • Your hobbies include setting traps, stalking prey, and worshiping the sun.
  • You want a captain who disrupts goals with arrows to the knee and crippling snares.
  • You want to control the pitch with ferocious beasts and skilled hunters.
The Mortician’s Guild: The Master of Puppets
The Master of Puppets

The Mortician’s Guild: Master of Puppets
MSRP: £50  $75  € 65  $100 AUD
“When you play them, you have to surrender control. You can’t simply do what you want. You’ve got to force them to let you do it. Sounds easy? It’s not.”
– Greyscales, Fishermen’s Guild
Obulus’ veins course with dark power. Feared as much he is hated, he’s as foul as a living cadaver. Enslaving minds to obey his undying will, opponents are but meek instruments for victory. No one can escape his cruel grasp.

Obulus’ team of Morticians leave their opponents mourning in a wake of disruptive manipulation. Menacing and unforgiving, this team actively dismantles their opponent’s strategies. Coaches who want to outsmart and exploit their opponents will live for the Mortician’s Guild.

The Master of Puppets is the team for you if…
  • You love to play mind games and get inside your opponent’s head.
  • You always relate to the villain. Being the good guy is boring.
  • You want a captain who always has a dirty trick up his sleeve.
The Union: Shadow of the Tyrant
Shadow of the Tyrant

The Union: Shadow of the Tyrant
MSRP: £50  $75  € 65  $100 AUD
“Who are the Union? A mismatched bunch o’ mercenaries, scum and criminals for the most part. You wouldn’t want to meet any of them in a dark alley late at night.”
— Flint, Mason’s Guild
Despised by the righteous, Blackheart’s sole motivation is wealth. A trait befitting a former marauder of the sea. With a body count as far-reaching as the depths of his brutality, he’s as swift as shadows. Only death and ruin can keep up with this tyrannous captain.

The Union is a team of criminals with specialized strengths. Under the nefarious rule of Blackheart, his gang of thugs can quickly match his speed or strike with more damage for precision take-outs. Each a deadly tool with a purpose, the Union is the perfect team for Coaches who want a band of ruthless cutthroats with clear-cut strengths.

The Shadow of the Tyrant is the team for you if…
  • You like top hats and thuggery.
  • Your loyalty can be bought… for the right price.
  • You want a team of specialized players who can play for other Guilds.
