We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

  4. The Whispering Vaults are empty. Their masters, The Darkling Dowager and The Gaunt Suitor, once again stalk the face of Malifaux. In their wake follow slaughter and an insane bounty of soul stone. Every faction races to contain the damage, and reap the bounty brought on by the masters of the Whispering Vaults, and race to lock the vaults forever more. Empty Stones is a six-week, story encounter-based achievement league. Every week will feature a new, home-spun story encounter, accompanied by a piece of original short fiction detailing the conflict between the factions of Malifaux and the Masters of the Vault, and a set of achievements both in game, and in hobby. There will also be cookies for everybody on the final league night, and a small glory token for the most achievement points...and this league is a part of St. Louis's ongoing League season, so points from last league carry over, and will continue to the next! Join us every Thursday, starting on 2/23 at 6pm at Game Nite St. Louis, 8330 Watson Rd., St. Louis, MO 63119.

  8. Man, I thought I had my pick sussed out, but these are so good!
  9. The King's Empire Discussion

    Their giant robot may be my favorite thing I've seen so far. Not madly in love with the red coat soldiers, but there's a lot of cool in there.
  10. Burt and Trixiebelle defensive combo?

    Mostly, your opponent will quickly figure out that targeting Burt is a bad idea unless he's on his own.

  12. Neverborn buying guide?

    I would start with Pandora or Lynch, personally Pandora, with a box of Insidious Madness, a Doppelganger, Weaver Widow, and Teddy. Lynch, I'd go with a box of Beckoners, Doppelganger, Stitched Together, Mr. Graves, and Mr. Tannen. Dreamer is a little tougher. Weaver Widow, Doppelganger, Stitched Together, Insidious Madness, Teddy, Lelu & Lility, and the forthcoming Bandersnatch. You will notice pretty substantial overlap. This is intentional. Schemes and Stones also has some pretty good articles on starting the various Factions. I'd check that out, too.
  13. Divergent Paths: Rezzer Edition

    6 points on Schemes, 6 points on Story objective. 10 is usually the max, as proper Strategies can only get you 4 points if you max them. The Lady's objective allowed 6 this week.
  14. Divergent Paths: Rezzer Edition

    Won with Nico 12-1 over Lady J on the Trickster. Maniacal Laugh is just kinda mean on that scenario.
  15. Reva wrecking face?

    Reva has to either 1) be in danger or retribution, or 2) have a corpse in range, which requires effort. The Levi cuddle certainly impacted him, by making Levi players choose targets with a little more thought than they had previously. Similarly, Perdita would have to choose between ignoring the cover, or ignoring the Armor/Incorporeal. And Levi doesn't have to pay for the ability to ignore defenses, and ignores more than Reva. Reva also has to pay for her totems via cards, Upgrades, while Levi gets two free models just 'cause. All are powerful. Marcus has a chance at doing 16 damage to a model in cover (unconcerned with cover as any Melee-focused Master). He can also force his target onto negative flips for every attempt to defend. I don't hear people crying for cuddles on him. My statement about Levi was not that he wasn't reduced in effectiveness, just that the impact is relatively small, and was needed. There's no need to be condescending. "I play Levi a lot." is actually not a refutation of my argument, neither is "he sometimes has to think about cover."
