    Battlelore 3th: a new hope

    I think it's time to move on. Since FFG isn't publishing anything else anymore for Battlelore I hope they are doing sth for a 3th Edition. What's your opinion on this?

    Iron Dwarves from BL1

    Looks nice - will try as soon as possible to play with this rules :)

    PDS shots into adjacent system

    I sometimes did that to shoot at an incoming fleet. Frequently it's worth the cost if you have the right tech.

    Battlelore 3th: a new hope

    And now...a change in the name of our forum.
  5. Chimonas

    Forum name changed

    Don't know but I guess that - since RuneWars is on holiday sale that this might be (reminding that BattleLore is a offspring of the ever flower Memoir44) a good sign for a revival. :)
  6. As you mentioned in the BL-forum: "I don't mind buying expansions like with BattleLore, but it's discouraging trying to keep up with these infinitely expandable games." - I think it's the same to me. Especially since I tried a game in a game store in Vienna. I think it's a great game and nicely modular...but the expansion packs of BL were a bit more familiar. Also after calculating my preferences for the game I decided not to join it actively (same counts for SW: Legion ). I start hoping for Battlelore: Star Wars.
  7. I always enjoy watching this Battle Report from the awesome Battlelore 2nd because it shows love to the detail, has great colours and a good overview about the turns and potential strategies of the both players. Since I am to lazy to search for Runewars videos (because I don't care so much about the Runewars yet - not sure if I should step a bit back from Kings Of War, Battlelore 2nd, Deadzone 2nd, Twilight Imperium 4 and Descent 1 to step into another game system) - do you know similar vids so i have a better base to decide if I want to go into it?

    Runewars rumours

    Thanks to my american board game fans I heard rumours that FFG plans something about a kind of TI4 revival of Runewars if TI4 sells well. Do you think that could be more then just rumours?

    Runewars Miniatures Game end of Battlelore?

    Back to the topic - I think that the stop of supporting BL killed Runewars in the long run. Many players I met told me that they're sceptical starting with the new RW since Battlelore felt so unfinished with only three factions.

    Wasn't aSoIAF a big failure for CMON?

    No Distant Suns?

    That's why I wrote probably. I just compared the content old and new edition.

    No Distant Suns?

    Well. Maybe this victory point is a distant sun marker? Since they write: “With over 354 plastic units, 450 cards, 700 tokens, 50 galaxy tiles, and so much more, Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition redefines what it means to be epic in the world of board gaming.“ 561 command and control tokens and probably: 46 Fighters+ground force 40 trade goods 8 bonus counters Leaves pretty much the 44 Domain counters and 1 left (+ the option of more). Maybe there are more planets or they used sth from the TI3 expansions.

    New Expansion or 4th Edition

    4th Edition my friends.

    Reprint - Banners of War

    Banners of War is still in the Reprint-section. Does anyone know if FFG forgot to cancel it (like they forgot to put the old MoM expansions out/change them when MoM 2. was announced/published) or will it be available again?

    Something big...

    What would you like to see in the next big box expansion of Runebound?
  16. With the path splitting of GW and FFG we are going to lose one of the greatest games ever. (https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/9/9/a-new-path-forward/) I was still hoping until now that they might release a second expansion to this awesome game. May it not rest in peace but rise once again. :'(

    Any chance fpr essen preorder ?

    Well, they presented the game at GenCon. So there might be a chance that - if FFG is there - they might provide a demo or already the actual game. If FFG isn't there but the Heidelberger Spieleverlag it's a fifty:fifty chance since they haven't announced that they'll provide Doom in any language so far.

    Runewars Miniatures Game end of Battlelore?

    This is something I really will never understand. The game is perfectly playable with two factions only, thus with the content of the core set. It's not like there is something missing making the game unplayable. And we don't have 2 factions only, we have 3, and each of them comes with several unit types, so, replayability is huge. Selling a game because there's no 4th faction seems rather senseless. Selling a game because it's no fun? Sure. Selling a game because it's repetitive? Sure. Selling a game because you want Elves but there are none? It's kindergarten behaviour I agree in every single comment. Also I have to admit - I haven't played Battlelore a lot since I haven't that much time. So I am indeed happy that they aren't publishing every year something. I would also be happy about a two or three years cycle so that I can enjoy everything new completely in several ways.

    Runewars Miniatures Game end of Battlelore?

    If BL2 has no more support, it's [only] because the released stuff didn't sell as they calculated. Simple but true... Sad story, yeah. But BL is in my opinion the nicer version of chess combined with MtG. To do some more adv would have been an idea.

    Archers and Lore/Command card effects

    If I remember correctly it's in the rules that ranged units cannot use sword symbols. So I would say if it's a 'may' or 'can' I would say that a ranged unit can't use it unless there is standing sth like 'single swords count as damage'. Take a look in the rule references which I am not able to search since I am traveling now and it's hard to work with an tablet^^
  23. Since I have some Descent - First Edition stuff and the Conversion Kit I am missing this heroes: Aurim Eliam Kirga Brother Glyr Tobin Farslayer (as everyone else is doing at the moment) Sahla Tahlia does anyone know if this heroes were released somewhere else already?

    Budgernaut's Latari Elves custom units

    Good question. My current thinking is that their scenarios will all have a fair number of forest hexes. For the elvish analogy to the crystal spires and blood fields, I was thinking of some sort of magic pool of water, but I haven't thought about mechanics yet. But an enchanted forest sounds like a good idea and is definitely worth considering. What about a magic ruin which gives you the option to roll three dices for lore and just works if a unit is activated and has neither moved or attacked. It's some kind of gambling but maybe it's better than giving them 1/2 lore for free. I like the ruins idea. Maybe Ruin of Runes or Rune Ruins? Gaining lore is good. I think that could definitely work. I think, though, I'd want some other effect that is less powerful, but guaranteed in addition to rolling for lore. Maybe drawing a lore card and then discarding a lore card? Here's another idea: "As long as a friendly unit occupies a Rune Ruins hex, you may play an additional lore card each turn." This ability emphasizes their magical origins. It has the potential to be very powerful, but first, you have to have 2 good lore cards, and second, you have to have enough lore to use both of them. The variance in power here is probably too big. It could be worthless or it could be explosive. I would restrict in both cases to an activated unit otherwise it's just op.
