Warmachine Oblivion: Campaign A Sample Run-through

Yesterday I posted my understanding of the Warmachine: Oblivion campaign rules here. Now I will try to write my way through how such a campaign might play out between a group of friends.Warmachine OblivionLife in the Iron Kingdoms is always filled with conflict. However, this feels different. There's a lot of chaos that can't be attributed to any one disaster, man made or otherwise. Secretly, the Infernals are working on coming to Caen.GuardiansChad and Phil will be our Guardians. Chad plays Circle Orboros and Phil plays Khador. Though not allies in the usual sense, their actions work together to try to calm the unrest throughout their respective territories.For Chad's part, the Circle Orboros don't like that stuff is messing with the ley network , and Phil's Khadoran Empire has had to put down more cults than is usual.CorruptorsFelix and Francesc will be our Corruptors. Felix plays Trollbloods, and Francesc plays Cygnar.Wait, how are they the bad guys? Well, let's assume that Khador is trying to stop uprisin

Warmachine: Oblivion Campaign Preview on DevChat

On their DevChat stream today, Will and Oz revealed how the narrative campaign will work in Warmachine: Oblivion. It's a branching tree campaign built for 2-4 players to play.The Oblivion SystemOblivion is how they're referring to this style of campaign system, and it'll be the basis for future leagues and events. Future leagues and events will plug in the 16 scenarios and scenario tree. I'm assuming that this will be a way for them to update fiction as they go as well.AgendasPlayers in the campaign will team up according to two agendas. Guardians and Corruptors. Players of the same agenda never play against each other and in the case of 3 player campaigns they have rules how to split the games.I think they said they'll have suggestions for who or what will be part of each agenda, but of course that's always going to be open to what you and your players want to play. I would say that some would see this as an opportunity to try another faction to fill a void in a particular storyline. If everyone in your meta

Previews: Archons So Far

Privateer Press has been leaking images of their Archons so far. At least the concept art. They've been doing this on their instagram account by releasing the images in 6 images that go together into a single image.If you've seen the instagram preview page you know that there are six preview shots that just so happen to line up perfectly if you send out the images just so. Anyway, that's the reason for the one gutters between some of the images below. Each image (maybe except the Morrowan one) was leaked with some kind of ominous text. I don't have any of that here.Except this one. I think the Morrowan Archon was leaked as an entire picture somewhere else. If you play Warmachine, you're familiar with the Morrowan iconography on the weapon and shield and belt. Pretty standard angelic fare. "I AM GROOT."The Primal Archon was leaked and the figure pretty much fits the description given. ("Walking mountain.")The Thamarite Archon is pure archer and also the most "angelic" looking archon with little to no
