  1. Hey folks, so this is an event page for the GB event, which is part of the Charity Gaming day for Alan Kennedy. Sadly Alan passed away just before Christmas of 2017 and will be missed amongst many different gaming communities. After some talk between friends a group of us have came together to run a gaming event in his name, purely for charitable causes. After chatting to Alan's family, and as per his own wishes we have decided to donate to the Scottish Association for Children with Heart Disorders (SACHD).The aim of this event is to have a fun and casual gaming day for gamers of all ages to enjoy. The hope is to run both a Warmachine and Guild Ball event, both of a relaxed and fun nature, with drop in gaming consisting of tabletop games and board games for those who want to enjoy a slower pace. The day will be topped off with a charity raffle, with all proceeds going to SACHD.The event is going to be held at Common Ground Games in Stirling. Which can be found at 40 Cowane Street, Stirling, FK8 1JRThe start time for the organised play events is being moved from 9.30 to 10 for doors open. This is to allow additional travel time as it turns out the Stirling Half marathon is on on the same day. So for all attendees please do NOT approach Stirling from the Raploch/West side of the city as most of the roads from the safari park to Stirling are closed. Please approach from the east side of Stirling. If you're coming by car :-)The event being run is "Captain, My Captain!". The premise is you build a team of 5 players, 1 mascot and 4 other eligible players, and the captain is chosen at random by a random generator for each round, Folks who played in the Gaming for Laura charity event will be familiar with how this event runs.There is NO ENTRY fee to the event, having spoken with CGG owner Steve any table fees would be donated to the charity event instead. Prizes and support all round The event will be held at Common Ground Games in Stirling, with dice being rolled around 10.30am. Having spoken to the SFG Lawyers Guild, unfortunately Blacksmiths are uneligible for this event, their design (master/apprentice) is too difficult to adapt for the event. I can provide a guild if anyone wants to attend that exclusively play blacksmiths.Itinerary for the day:10.00 - Doors open10.30 - 12.30 - Round 1 for WM and GB events12.30 - 13.30 - Lunch13.30 - 15.30 - Round 215.45 - 17.45 - Round 318.00 - Raffle, prizes, etc The above times are only really for the folks playing in the organised events. If youre dropping in for casual gaming feel free to drop in any time of the day If anyone cant make it, we have also set up a JustGiving page in Alan's name which can be found here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/alank The raffle is very very very well funded and we have had many generous donations.

  2. All Stars Game

    Here is a fun one for you. Drop 2 Influence from each captain. Now drop any Legendary Play. Now make a team with no captain and any mascot you want. Who is your team? EDIT: To add a few constraints and clear up vagueness. Captains can now play where ever and are considered "friendly guild models." You may still use any mascot. Other normal team building rules apply.
  3. Why Midas?

    Am I the only person who never liked Midas? I have played Alchemists since I started playing when season 2 came out, and all I heard was: "Midas is so good! OMG Midas best captain in the game! He is so great! Why would anyone ever not run Midas forever?!?" But I never got the hype. He is decent I guess, but I always like the control and synergy of Smoke more than the randomness and influence hogging of Midas. I actually like him a little better now in Season 3 after he lost his terrible power steal ability (which was also over-hyped and never worth the influence cost) and now seems like a point guard to move the ball to Vitriol (but his poor kicking ability is annoying). What am I missing? I just don't get it...
  4. There may only be one month until we find out (if all the new profiles are revealed at Steamcon) ... so before that, I was wondering who would people like to become a veteran, a captain, or switch teams in season three? This is a story/game play question, not a new model one (Vitriol seems popular for a new sculpt in the other thread). On the individual team boards Minx joining the hunters is a popular idea, and there's a suggestion for Friday to join the Union. The season one rulebook hints at Friday, Mercury and Graves all being possible for team swaps, although Graves has given up by season two. Then there are the rumours about Honour leading the farmers and Ox making a comeback with the church. Or could Ox and Jac team up somehow as brothers? Some of the younger players look obvious to be veterans at some point, like Boiler and Angel. Any other ideas?
  5. Sake, a fictional brewer

    Hello guild ballers, It has been a while since I posted in these forums, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! A lot of content was added to my blog so feel free to Read more than just my latest creation, linked below: My blog This time I made another fictional player. Let me know if you'd field him or not... Also if anybody out there is willing to walk me through how to create an actual Card for my creations, I'm eager to learn! Greetings Bob

  7. A question came up that I couldn't answer. What rule stops someone from playing two mascots on a team? Captain, mascot, mascot, player, player, player. Or even Captain, mascot, captain, player, player, player. Page 10 of season 2 actually says captain, mascot, and fill out the roster with other models that play for the same guild as the captain. Page 7 of the Organized play document uses the term eligible model. I suppose since type isn't limited by either the rule book our OP document on how you fill out the team you could but I'm still of the firm opinion that that was not the intent.
  8. Shark Vs Corsair

    Hi Fishermen Just wanting to start a general discussion on both the Fish captains, and everyone's opinions on them, mainly on Corsair and how he stacks up to Shark. I've heard only good things so far, and i'm wanting to know a few things from those who've played both, in regards to how they performed/played with Corsair as their Captain instead of Shark. Questions: How have you found Corsair better/worse than Shark? Which teammates does Corsair Synergise well with vs those who can merit being dropped sooner in a Corsair-led team? How do Fisherman play as a team with Corsair, and how does that differ than with Shark? Would you still consider playing Shark over Corsair/vice versa, or is it "X all the way!"? Again, just a friendly discussion for beginners, or just people who are overwhelmed at the prospect of two captains, and want some help/guidance on how to play a Corsair led crew and how it differs, and whether or not that playstyle is for you. I would input, but i fall into that second category xD Thanks in advance- Happy Scoring
