Yesterday Stuart defeated David's invasion handsomely.
Ed raided Scott winning a pyrrhic victory in a bloody encounter where Scott's warband gained in strength and power while Ed 's gained nothing.
Scott then raided Ed but in a cagey game that ran out of time neither side could prevail.

Bill              3         3           4            16      1   #
David          4         4           2            15      2
Ed               2         7           4            21      9
George        3         3           4            16      1   #
Stuart          3         3           3           16       3
Brian           3          6           4           19      1   #
Scott           2          9           3           18      8
Scot            4          3           4           18      4        

# Includes defending orders for season 5 wealth and troops.
Bill, David and Scott have the most Hearthguard 11 each.
Ed has the most Warriors 40.
Scot has the most Levies 31.

Season 5 orders;

George is defending.
Scott is raiding Ed.
Brian is defending.
Scot is defending.
Stuart is campaigning against Brian.
Bill is defending.
Dave is campaigning against Stuart.
Ed is raiding Scott.
Mick is raiding Bill.

Slight change from Sunday as Bill had already handed in his orders week's before where he had to defend.

So George and Scot have no skirmishes in July. Scot you have still to receive 1 wealth and troops for defending so let me know what you want.

Hope all is well.

If by 'ran away' you mean 'achieved and surpassed the victory conditions by leaving the battlefield with minimal casualties, thereby nullifying the OpFor's ambush,' then yes, I 'ran away.' Good to see that the art of strategy isn't lost on some of our members. Razz

Yesterday Scot and Scott had two encounters. First one was won by Scot who ran away to claim victory however the second was won by Scott who left only the Saxon warlord alive, the most destructive defeat ever suffered by any Warlord ever.

All fighting is over for this campaign season. Orders for fifth season required no later than the 24th. Have three Warlords orders in already.

Of course, the term vendetta comes from the old Norse "vin droit agata" meaning you stole my wine I'll kill you Razz

Today ;

Stuart defeated George after a vicious struggle.
Ed defeated Bill's Vikings and sent them home to think again. Once again fate improved Ed's Scots very little, Bill on the other hand is now stronger than before ?
Ed's Scots then attacked Stuart's Vikings burning crops and dwelings. The Scots slaughtering all before them with the Viking warlord being killed with many blows. A new Viking warlord has vowed vengeance on the Scottish warlord, we shall see ?

At end of season 3;
Scott and Ed have 5 victory points and Mick is the only person with no victory points.
Stuart has the largest warband.
David has the most land.
Scott has the most wealth.

Season 4

Ed has allied his forces to Brian.

David is defending.
Brian is defending.
Scot is campaigning against Scott.
Scott is raiding Scot.
George is raiding Stuart.
Stuart is defending.
Mick is defending.
Bill is raiding Ed.
Ed is raiding Stuart.

Next week Bill is raiding Ed while George is raiding Stuart. Followed promptly by Ed raiding Stuart.

All is well.

Saga V2 rules are a big improvement on the V1 rules so hopefully the same will be true of the campaign system. Smile

Also included in the scenario changes is 'The challenge'. From now on no warlord can be killed in this scenario the winner is the warlord who inflicts the most hits on his opponent.
I have printed the sheets so you can cut and paste them to hard copies of the rules.

Next year it is my intention to run a campaign but with Saga 2 rules and their hopefully improved new campaign system.

Hrothgar Godsbane has sacrificed twenty worthless Christian slaves to Odin All Father and is now ready for WAR!

Results of yesterday's games.
Scott beat Brian after a hard scrap.
Bill then inflicted another defeat on Brian.
Scot cleverly defeated Ed. but to little gain for either side as famine hit Scot's lands.
Ed defeated Mick.

Next Sunday Brian and David will be fighting twice.

Remember orders in next Sunday.

If I am in attendance next Sunday I will bring in copies of clarifications for three scenarios which makes them more playable and fun. This will ensure better more interesting games from season four onwards. Scenarios are Sacred Ground, Homeland and The Escort.

After a gallant struggle Brian's war band was defeated by Scot's Anglo Saxons. Thus ending season 2.

Season 3 orders;
George is raiding Bill.
Mick is campaigning against Ed.
Ed is defending.
Stuart is defending.
Scot is campaigning against Ed.
Brian is raiding David.
David is campaigning against Brian.
Scott is raiding Brian.
Bill is raiding Brian.

We came to an agreement that no one player may fight more than 4 times in one season. Unfortunately poor Brian has the pleasure for the first time ever of fighting four times in a season, good luck Brian.

I think we should continue too, members will work out their own schedules and if they can't play one season there is the danegeld rule as Scot said.

Yeah, I agree with Dave. Nothing to worry about. In general, there are 4/5 Sundays a month, so we've still got plenty to work with. And if it's impossible to arrange a game, we have the danegeld rules to fall back on. I'm not going to make every Tanker campaign day - I'll be in Florida for July's game - but I'll work Saga around everything else.

I'm sure we can continue. There are things in place already for people not being able to play in time. I don't see it being an issue. Or at least not a recurring issue.

As 7 out of the 9 players have signed up to play Mr. Brown's WW 2 Tank campaign which could last a minimum of 6 months but probably more should we suspend this campaign after season 3?
Main reason for this is purely the logistics of running a campaign. More often than not there will now only be two Sundays a month to play games once the WW2 campaign starts as David would like on the last Sunday in May.
The first Sunday of each month we try to organise games and with David hoping and probably successfully commandeering the hall for his WW2 campaign every last Sunday in a month for possibly say 9 months then can we realistically continue ?

Any thoughts ? Remember not all folk are in each week with work commitments, holidays and so on. If the club is effectively being exclusively for 13 members involved in the WW2 campaign every last Sunday in a month for the foreseeable future, then I cannot see the SAGA campaign being workable.

Brian raiding Scot this Sunday, remember make sure you give me your orders for the 3rd Season no later than this Sunday. David HAS already given me his orders Very Happy
