Anyone else here play at Pandemonium on Tuesdays? It was recommended to me by the guy I played last Thursday and he said a number of people go, so I will be checking it out today. Come out and join me!

FYI -- Eternal Games in Warren is having a Scum & Villainy release tournament on Friday 27 Feb. Top two places prize is a Most Wanted Expansion.

Buy-in is $10, flying starts at 7 PM. No wave 6 ships or upgrades allowed.

This doesn't make sense to me. Why not allow Wave 6 at a Wave 6 release tournament? It seems like that would be the best opportunity to try out the brand new ships.

 

We have one in our area that is Scum & Villainy only, which I unfortunately can't attend.

Were you the carnor/howl/5x academies fellow? If so, excellent swarm flying.

I was indeed. Thanks! The dice gods showed me much favor.  :)

Oh, BTW I was thinking like a team thing.  I mean huge, so no one player would have to front 300 points solo.  Maybe even a 3 way scenario where there is a disabled GR-75 and the S&V and Rebel factions are each vying to get to it, board it, capture it, and fly it off the board before the Imps blow it up.

 

I was thinking any ship with a crew slot could as its action attempt to board the transport if they are within range 1 of the transport.  Roll a red die, on a focus or blank the connection is successful.  A hit or a crit represents a botched docking job and damage.  On a successful dock the ship is considered stopped and makes no moves and rolls no attacks and has no defense dice because they are dead in the water trying to capture the transport. 

 

Every round the docked ship rolls a red die and on a crit the "boarding party" is successful in capturing the transport. On anything else they have to try again next round.

 

The boarding ships could use their crew slots to "carry" upgrades for the transport that can be equipped on the transport if successful in capturing the transport, but they cannot use those upgrade cards for their own ships.  For every crew slot upgrade carried for the GR-75 represents another member of the "boarding party" and the docked ship rolls an extra red die to try to get that crit.  

 

Once the ship is captured the docked ship rolls a red die to disengage and on a focus/blank is successful and on a crit/hit they take the damage.

 

Then the Rebels or S&V fly the ship to their quadrant.  Rebels or S&V could try to re-ionize the ship with 4 ion tokens and retry to board the ship.

 

I'm thinking 200 points per faction with 90 points of reinforcements of stock pilots when your list gets to below 50 points.

 

Thoughts...

There's a lot going on there but I like it. The rules might end up needing to be tweaked a little, but I wouldn't know seeing as I've never done a scenario (not even those included in the core set). If I did participate in this game however, I'd have to play Imperial as I'm relatively new and that's all I have invested in. Other than that it sounds like a ton of fun.

 

The playing area is going to have to be huge. Where would we be playing do you think?

The galaxy is in turmoil.  The continuous strikes from the Rebellion have weakened the Empire’s grasp on the galaxy.   And in these uncertain times, the Scum and Villainy of the galaxy are preying on the weak.  Each day, alliances are betrays and planets are conquered, all at the expense of the common man.  The fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.

 

Starting in April, RIW will be moving to their new location, just a few hundred feet away from their current location.  To celebrate the move, along with the release of S+V and successful conclusion of the Store Championship season, I will be running a multi-week galactic campaign aimed at galactic conquest. 

 

Players (or teams of players) will register beforehand, and the first night there will be a draft of planets to control.  Each planet will provide certain resources, while others will have special bonuses.  From there, players will distribute their forces to defend their planets and to conquer others.  At the start of each Fleet Phase, players will be awarded resources to bolster their fleets and plan out their fleet actions.  Then all movements will resolve at once, breaking out into multiple skirmishes for control of various planets.  Each skirmish will result in a game of X wing!  The winner of the battle will claim (or maintain) control of that planet.  Once every skirmish is resolved, a new Fleet Phase will begin.  At the conclusion of the campaign, prizes will be awarded based on number of planets controlled.

 

 

So, this is my attempt to get away from the standard 100pt death match without drastically altering the game.  I’m still working out the logistical issues, but what I’m thinking is to print out a map of the galaxy (3x3 or so), and attach some Velcro to each planet.  Then planet control and the pieces secured at each planet could be velcro’d onto that planet.  It will also be tracked at the end of the night via excel to ensure week to week consistency.  And I’ll probably also launch some sort of website to track all of it.  This might either be in a google doc or a free host website place.  I’ll also have detailed rules posted there (still working on the details, but they’re probably 95% done right now). 

 

 

If this is something that interests you, please let me know.  Obviously I’m not looking for a commitment at this point, but if no one is interested, I’m not going to bother investing my time into getting it all setup.  And if there’s a huge demand, I’ll have to think about rescaling some of the map for more players.  And I’m open to any suggestions.

That is a magnanimous idea! I love it! I am 100% interested in participating and also helping if you'd like (I have a decent amount of experience in web design if you want to do a free hosted website). Will you be at RIW today? If so, I'd love to talk more in depth with you about it.

Sadly I won't.  I'm pretty much stuck in Canada until the end of March, so my time frame not only lines up nicely with the new store, but also with my return to the good ole' USA!

Well in that case I will most likely not be participating as starting in April I will back to school up in Flint.  :( Best of luck! Have fun in Canuckistan  ;)

This sounds like a great idea.  I'd sign up depending on schedule.

Good tournament at Gamer's Gauntlet yesterday.  Tommy did a phenomenal job of organizing the tournament and running it smoothly.

 

I forgot what the top 4 lists were, but I'm sure someone will chime in here eventually.

Alright, it's still a WIP, but I decided I'd go ahead and launch the website for RIW's Galactic Campaign.

 

RIWxwing.weebly.com

 

Feel free to sign up to let me know that you're interested.  I'll still be doing some tweaking to the rules in order to streamline some stuff and whatnot, but the general concept won't be changing.  And I still need to add a Planets page that shows who controls each planet and what fleet is in orbit.
