  2. For the basic Story Leagues I mostly pull them from the core book (1) and flip for the deployment and random event for the week that way everyone has the same effects. They like that more as they can all talk about the way it help or hindered them. Other more RPG based Story events that I weave a narrative through I mostly still take from the main book but may tweek them a little here and there others for end of big or particularity fun leagues I will draft myself like the large multiplayer scenarios i mentioned.
  3. 1- I had a good time and from the comments I've received or heard through a 3rd party were very positive. 2- Our group is not competitive and now mostly with new players who've never played in a real tournament as it isnt to their liking. I haven't played in GG since around 2016; though when i did play a competitive at the end of 1st ed and start of 2nd ed I did enjoy it. The real difference with Story vs GG is the balance. Story events that I run and my community prefers are not as balanced and have a very strong story theme to them. There is a primer, overall story arc and usually an epilogue that sometimes have led to a day of linked games or another story league. Other times its a massive multi player scenario that they can team up together against a common villainous force that i play. 3- They have access to all the Schemes (even Factions ones) so that does make it a little harder for some than others. However there were no issues that were brought forth besides some players having a hard time dealing with Reva. Hope that ramble helps?

Many crews and Schemes in the game are late game focused. Meaning they excel in turn 4 and 5 of the game and its not fair for those players to be penalised for short games. This is an unorthodox, but proper solution for our local meta.

    Showgirl Seamus

    Hello all I'm posting under my husbands account as I dont have access to mine anymore due to password issues and this is easier. I used to play a lot of Collette and Pandora in 1st ed and I am dipping my toe back into this edition with Lynch and Ophelia. I wanted to give Seamus a try as we have a lot of models for him and my husband cant make him work well with his play style (1st or 2nd ed) though he loves him dearly lol. Figured with the new(ish) Showgirl options he got i'd give him a try in our beginner friendly league. Any tips on Showgirl Seamus or even general Seamus; model selection, tricks, things to watch out for or do? thanks you in advance

  9. Ophelia LaCroix and the Temple of Ophidias What: Malifaux Story tournament When: Saturday January 27th with a 11:30 start time hoping to finish by 17:30. Cost: 8$ towards prize support (yet to be determined) Where: Games Nook, 1855 Lassale Blvd, Sudbury, ON, Canada Primer: With the raid on the Carver’s private pumpkin patch completed and Ophilia LaCroix having stolen the most amount of the Carver’s power (Lilith and Titania also taking some) things temporarily have settled back to normal in Malifaux. While the other “masters” had their own nefarious purposes for the pilfered arcane goods; Ophelia’s involvement was a mystery to all. To her it was simple; everyone else was going there and she wanted to see why. With her many motes of the power to use as she saw fit to further arcane knowledge, Ophelia simply ate most of them as was her right as Boss. With this meal came great indigestion for her and her Kin. She even had visions that night of her in the jungle region of Malifaux scaling the heights of a stepped temple. She has decided to see these visions through and has begun doing some “research”; capturing and interrogating human scholars and explorers, some of which got away. With the escapes came news of a Gremlin pilgrimages to a temple full of gold or arcane wealth and power. Many spies are busy these nights in Malifaux and the Bayou. Raids are conducted for supplies and knowledge while all wait and see where Ophelia and her Kin head; some already have ideas where she will go. Tournament Special rules: - Each player must pick a Faction and Master and continue with those same two for the entire event; though the rest of the crew may change each game, following the rules for each game. - Each game will be 5 rounds and MUST finish 4 rounds of play to be considered Won or Lost, otherwise it will be scored a Draw. - Please familiarise yourself with Game one and two scenarios ahead of time. - There will be 5 min between rounds. - All Schemes are available; choose 2 for each game. You MAY NOT REPEAT the same Schemes in the tournament except A Line in the Sand. Game 1: Destroy Evidence [Crows] - 50 Soulstones – 120 min Master and their proxies are hunting for leads and information as to what and where this supposed Temple of Ophidias is. - Must have 1 Master and 1 Henchman, the rest is up to you within normal rules - Players must flip for Attacker/Defender Game 2: Escort [Masks] - 40 Soulstones – 100 min Weeks have gone by; the race is on and the crews are moving. They raid each other’s supplies as they make their way South East of Malifaux far past the Bayou towards the Temple. - Must have 1 Master, the rest is up to you within normal rules - Players must flip for Attacker/Defender Game 3: The Temple of Ophidias - 15 Soulstones – 120 min *Fluff to be given as the game begins - Must have 1 Master and NO Henchman, the rest is up to you within normal rules - This will be a (semi) cooperative game. Players can face the common threat (run by the TO) together, or fight amongst themselves. After all; its Malifaux and bad things happen. ***As previously mentioned at the Night of the Carver tournament; if Kerrie, Pennie and Josh use their previous Masters (Ophilia, Lilith, Titania respectively) from Night of the Carver they will get a one-time bonus in the last round of the tournament; draw 2 cards once whenever they want.
  10. Malifaux Event Evening: Night of the Carver This will be an evening of Malifaux; featuring "Carver" events, custom scenarios, side games, snack and non-alcoholic beverages provided. When: Sunday, October 29th from 17:00 to 22:00 Where: Games Nook, 1855 Lassale Blvd, Sudbury, ON, Canada Entry is Free! Some prizes available.
  11. Our group is doing story encounters for this league and although we've looked in the Main book and Ive searched here, we have had no luck with the following question. How do we determine who is the "Attacker" or "Defender"? I assume we flip and choose after the Encounter has been flipped?

    new FM with questions

    Ya this is the same problem we are running into. Combat seems very deadly. We played 2 Penny Dreadful One Offs and failed both times tonight. One only one of the 3 of us had the skill needed to complete the Ongoing Challenge the other 2 just stood around doing nothing. The other we got overrun by NPCs. The TN for NPCs seem very high considering the players flip all the the cards so we get all the high cards usually in negative twists lol and all the low ones also. Is there any youtube video tutorials or something? Are we also doing something wrong?
  14. My wife is FMing this game (her first time running any RPG) and she has a question for the community before tonight's first game. - Say a player passes a Toughness challenge to remain conscious; would their wounds remain at zero or would it go to 1 wound? - If you have points in a Magic skill but dont have a grimoir, can you not do magic? - Do you have to know an Immuto for every Magia or is a blanket Immuto? thank you in advance, Durek's wife
