  1. Official Malifaux app

    I love the app. The only thing I want is a number counter for the model list. Maybe a drop down menu for the other stats (ie, so I can put that I have 4 of X and 2 painted).
  2. Monday Preview - Bureaucrat

    Perfect. My players have learned about the power bureaucracy. I can't wait for this book to come out.
  3. Broken Promises Fluff Discussion

    ............................................................. .................................................. ................................................................ ................................................... .......................................... ................................................. ................................................. ......................................................... .............................................................. ...................................... .................................. I'm confused of what you're saying. I don't think anyone is saying that the countries that broke away don't have to follow the Guild in Guild controlled lands. Just that the Guild does not control their countries anymore. Also, Toni is American. I don't see the Abyssianians caring one way or the other that she's playing ball with the Guild anymore than anyone else.
  4. Broken Promises Fluff Discussion

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . I'll start out with the bad: No vignettes. While it didn't matter for some, we heard absolutely nothing about some Masters (Molly and Reva off the top of my head) other than stuff we already knew. Wyrd, please make the vignettes a standard thing. Other that, I was quite happy with the stories overall. Honestly, with some of the drastic changes, I feel like we're getting a 3.0 soon. McMourning is no longer Guild. Lilith is possibly becoming undead. Zoriada has been more or less kicked out of the Gremlins. That's not even considering that Nicodem or Lady Justice will soon meet their end. This book has probably bigger changes within the story than any other book. Kudos to Wyrd for keeping Malifaux a dynamic story instead of a permanent status quo. Also, I love the implications of the Outcasts story. I always like a theme Crew. But I don't have problem mixing in elements most of the time. All the Masters within a Faction are allies. So, themes mixing makes some sense. Master X can always borrow Master Y's followers (at least, that's what I tell myself). Except the Outcasts. There really isn't a reason Parker should be running around with Void Wretches. Thanks to the newest Outcast story, there now is. Oh. Regarding some of the previous posters. I totally buy Ironsides selling out Ramos to get the Guild to end slavery in America. It's a big deal. Though I wonder if she'll wind up helping Ramos out now that she got what she wanted. Also, I wouldn't consider Witness in play. S/he's still trapped. We just know where Witness is now. Though I do find it odd that Witness and December are pretty much in the same place.
  5. Did I just solve the summoning problem?

    While I think the current rule needs a little fixin' to avoid hurting transformative summons, I think this is way to extreme. Putting a huge handicap on summoners during one start doesn't help anything. It makes 1/4 of the games miserable for the summoners and doesn't do anything to help the other 3/4 games.
  6. Summoners into GG2018

    I support this. It's more or less already a rule for Campaigns. "If a model has access to a Tactical Action or Ability which requires the model to sacrifices itself in order to summon something, the summoned model(s) do(es) not gain the Unplanned Condition (or Summoned Characteristic)." Jake and Serena can have the line added "This model counts as sacrificing itself for purposes of summoning." Chompy can get something like "Is immune to Unplanned Condition/Summoned Characteristic." Because something needs to be done about Chompy because it actually hurts Chompy Stompy even more since he won't be able to do strats so, you won't want to keep him out.
  7. Summoners into GG2018

    Oh. I'm just considering all sides. I'm not saying it's a big pain. Just one that's there for Ours (since without it, he'd count as 10 SS for the Scheme)
  8. Summoners into GG2018

    For transformative models, I say they should just steal from the Campaign rules: "If a model has access to a Tactical Action or Ability which requires the model to sacrifices itself in order to summon something, the summoned model(s) do(es) not gain the Unplanned Condition." This would help the rule stop summoners from flooding the board in quarter games while avoiding hurting models that summon to represent change. Lord Chompy would still be hurt as would Big Jake (who needs errata for this anyways since his other ability is useless). Big Jake can have be changed to "counts as having sacrificed himself for summoning purposes" and "may be considered as counting as two models or 10 Soulstones at the end of the game." Still hurts Chompy though.
  9. Symbols of Authority

    I've been going over it and I cannot think of any reason not to take the markers on my side. Better to deny points to the enemy then try to defend them. I'm definitely in favor making it so you can only pick up those on the enemiy's side.
  10. GenCon news update

    Current guess is September since that's when the books are usually released.
  11. GenCon news update

    I did mine before Wyrd responded here or The Wyrd place. So, please let customer service that's my bad.
  12. Monday Preview - July 10th

    I can't wait to take Hamelin with his Best Son/Cat and watch a bunch of rats turn into a giant cat.
  13. Wyrd Happenings in Rockford, Illinois

    Who: Everyone! Where: Loves Park Top Cut What: Storyline Tourney 50 Soulstone I'll be flipping for the allowed schemes before each round. I will allow Faction schemes to be used. Loyalty - Using an idea from my fellow Rockford-area Henchman (whose forum name I forget), I will allow people to pick a Faction or a Master. You may change the Master's faction to any faction they can legally use in between rounds. I'll be using Story Strats for this tourney. Round 1: The day starts out hectic as there's trouble in the Quarantine Zone. Break Quarantine (Rippling Fates, page 48) Round 2: .Just as soon as that mess is taken care of, the crew learns of an important train leaving for Ridley. Hope there's no trouble. Train Robbery (Rippling Fates, page 138) Round 3: And now after eventful day, everyone deserves a break. I think there's a wrestling match going on. Fight Night (Crossroads, page 239) "I got the continuity right!": Players will be awarded an extra Guilder if they use the same Master and the same Faction for the whole tournament. When: August 6th 12:30 Why: Because trying new things is fun. And since I realize these aren't as necessarily as balanced as Gaining Grounds Strategies, this is going to be a no-entry fee tourney. Prizes will be smaller, but the emphasis is on the fun over the competition. Also, feel free to join my Facebook group if you have any questions. I'll answer them here, but I'll probably get them quicker on it. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1092691180778182/
  14. Swordfighter is revealed! Your thoughts?

    I believe that is the problem with making a joke in writing.
  15. May 8th - Divergent Path Child
