Skirmishes still to be fought.

Mick is raiding Scott who is defending.
Scot is campaigning against a campaigning Ed.

So who will be King ?

Hope to start new campaign in September.

Played my game against Dave last night. Scenario was Forest Road Ambush, set at 5pts, with Dave attacking. He began his turn 1 attack by moving onto the road and cutting off both ends, while my restricted Saga dice only sllowed me to move off the road in the centre. Our levy units traded arrows for spears with each other, picking up a few casualties each. Turn 2, Dave closed the noose... or would have, if he hadn't left the closest table edge completely open. Less a noose, more a bowl. So, I ran my Warlord off the table in two moves, securing the win. To be fair, he thought the scenario said I had to get my Warlord off either end of the road, but the rules said any table edge.

So, I'm up to 3 Campaign Victory Points, Land 4, Wealth 3, Reputation 4, and Power 16. The Fate roll netted me more Levy, so I have 5 Hearthguard, two units each of 7 Warriors, a unit of 12 Levy and another of 11 Levy.

Will get Dave to update his finishing roster sheet. I've one more game against Eddie to play.

Bill is defending this season.
Bill will be part of the new Saga campaign which will begin in August and I think will run for 6 seasons like this one.

David what are your orders for season 6 and what was your result and data for your roster after your skirmish with Brian ?

After discussing it today we have decided to run this campaign for only 6 seasons and then start a fresh campaign. Mainly the consensus was we only now know how the campaign forces/roster works and we felt a new campaign could be started after 6 seasons.
Hope this is OK for everyone.

Scot as regards war banners and having read 'The Crescent and the Cross' rules they confirmed you are correct as regards there use.
As regards units you are also correct.

Standings at present;

Brian is an Atheling with a banner and 0 victory points and 12 power.
Mick has 1 victory point and 13 power.
George is an Atheling and has 5 victory points and 19 power.
Ed is an Atheling with a banner,  7 victory points.and 22 power.
Bill is an Atheling with a banner, 2 victory points and 17 power.
Scot has 2 victory points and 14 power.
David is an Atheling and has 2 victory points and 16 power.
Scott is an Atheling with a banner, 2 victory points and 16 power.
Stuart(vacant) is an Atheling and has 2 victory points and 16 power.

After season 5 I will hand out new roster sheets for the last 3 seasons.

Was looking at the FAQ and errata for Saga tonight. Banner rules have been clarified (read: nerfed). If you carry out your rally action to get the benefit of the banner, you cannot make a movement or shooting action following that rally action.

Yeah, that's how I was explaining it.

Regardless of your unit composition on your roster, the points system from the core rules is still in effect. So 1pt = 4 Hearthguard = 8 Warriors = 12 Levy, and the maximum size a unit can be is 12 strong. If you have a 10 man warrior unit, that would cost 2pts. If you have a 10 man Hearthguard unit, that's 3pts.

If anything, that clarifies things a little further by saying you can't take part of a unit for less points. So if you have that 10 man warrior unit costing 2pts, it has to be fielded in full. You couldn't take 8 of them for 1pt and leave the remaining 2 at home.

So the roster element of what your units are is more of a paper exercise, for determining primarily what your force contributes to your overall power rating, and what you can actually muster that's supported by how much land/wealth/reputation.

I've been saying to anyone who'll listen that this campaign is badly written - yes, it's fun, and it does work, but you have to fill in a lot of the gaps because of how unclear it is.

All three games during season 4 are 'pencilled in' for the 19th, should be interesting.

After receiving all the orders the following actions for season 4 are;
Ed is campaigning against Scot.
Brian is raiding Ed.
Scott is raiding Brian.
Everyone else is defending.

As I have mentioned I intend to make the campaign last for 8 seasons after the sixth season I will issue everyone with fresh up-to-date roster sheets for the final two seasons.

Small reminder once you buy a banner you count as a Lord even if you temporarily fall below 15 power, this is important for extra victory points. You can also buy one land for two wealth. Read the rules.

As of today the campaign ratings are as follows;

Brian 0 VP and 14 power, only Atheling with a war banner.
Mick 1 VP and 11 power.
George 4 VP and 17 power.
Ed 1 VP and 14 power.
Bill 2 VP and 15 power.
Scot 1 VP and 13 power.
David 1VP and 15 power
Scott O VP and 13 power.
Stuart 2 VP and 12 power. Deceased but new leader with new traits, position is available.

Remember when you get to 15 power you have the option to buy your personal banner costing 1 wealth but to offset this you gain 1 in reputation.

David, Scott, Brian, Mick and Ed still have one skirmish to fight in, Scot has three and all required to complete season 3.

Just been reading up the rules on the campaign, seems there has been some mistakes with the victory points. I will give a revised score once I check how the points were worked out.

It's gonna be a wee bit more difficult to get this season done, what with Christmas and all. But apart from that, I think we've been playing through the games fine. There hasn't been any big delays. If necessary, me and scot will probs do our game away from the club.

Two games played on Sunday.
Bill defeated George
Ed defeated Mick (1st skirmish)
This Sunday Scot hoped to fight games against Brian and Scott, however Brian can not make it and Scott is to busy playing something else.
Scot will attempt to arrange games with Brian and Scott on his next visit to the club on the 15th of January.

Think we need to accept there has to be a bit of come and go with arrangements. Some members can not make it in each week so require opponents to be flexible to get the games played in a reasonable time scale.
Sadly that problem already has reared its head, I do not know how we can ensure folk are willing to play when the opportunity arises foregoing other arrangements.
If this is not sorted out this campaign like so many others that we have tried will fail due to lack of commitment of some of the players.

The above is not a criticism of anyone in particular but just an observation and a likely outcome if folk can not be available to get through these encounters.

Next orders will be gathered on Sunday 15th of January to Wednesday 18th so I can organise season 4 and possible games for Sunday the 22nd.
Happy Christmas folks.

Here are the battles and decisions for the third season.

Bill is raiding George
Ed is raiding Mick and in return
Mick is raiding Ed
George is defending
David is defending
Scott is raiding Scot
Brian is raiding Scot
Scot is campaigning against David

Everyone has a battle, Scot has three while Ed and Mick will fight each other twice.

Next orders will be collected on the 8th of January, hopefully Scot will have managed to fight his three battles no later than this.
