Greg and Roger made it back from their respective vacations in time for a Friday game. After a short but detailed discussion about Adventures on Vacation we started setting up for the scenario..
The scenario is actually the first introduced to players, but has a lot of replay value.
There is a letter, both sides want it. Both sides will fight to get it.
The first from the left, Eisenhower (who holds the letter) near two interior doors, then a knechte on each side of the tavern's main door. Seigfried is in the yellow jacket and light cape near the rear doors on the right of frame.
The second crew takes up positions outside the tavern. Greg chose the Monster Hunter faction over his beloved Musketeers. Must have been all the new painted figures. In the lower right you can just see Koning, the Crack Shot of the group.
Better shot of right side of tavern, by the backdoor.
Ok a shot of the whole playing area; to the right bottom is Sepp de Vrees, leader of the Monster Hunters. Two Hexenjager, the commoner contingent for the hunters are by the main door, as is the final Hunter hero, Geralt.
End first turn. Geralt and friends have entered, Eisenhans is looking out the back, the skulking Hunters are waiting. Geralt is rushing a lowly knechte, who inflicts a very minor wound with a grazing crossbow bolt.
Next turn, Seigfreid leaps up onto the table, and with a pistol shot dispatches Geralt . This leaves the two Hexenjagers outnumbered two to one, bad odds.
The Order chased off the two jagers, got Iron Hans off board with the letter , leaving Sepp and Koning scratching their heads as to what went wrong.
The Order passed its letter to its network of contacts.
In our local imagination campaign, Roger's country got an intelligence coup, locating the trail of 'Anna' who had escaped the forces of Dahara months ago in the Swamp Adventure. I'd share that with you, but it's secret!
