    Any update on TOS goodies?

    Sorry if I sound impatient (I am impatient - especially since last Wyrd Chronicles landed) but do we know if our shiny new TOS toys have left China yet? Have they landed in US? Is someone in Marietta filling boxes at this very minute? How long before onwards shipment to the UK? So many questions and I don't expect much of a response at this time - but any news would be good!

    Any update on TOS goodies?

    Choosing Kickstarter was more than just a financial decision for me anyway - I'm happy to have backed something I want to see succeed and contribute in a tiny way towards its awesomeness.

    Crickey you're right. The prices here are less than KS was charging us: https://www.gamenerdz.com/the-other-side Fortunately I'm too old to believe everything on the internet, or care about things I can't influence, otherwise that would indeed be a bit of a slap in the face.

    Penetration flips

    Hey, I missed the beta testing but have been trying to learn the rules from Wyrd's YouTube video and latest Wyrd chronicles. I understand that the result of the penetration flip (strength + cheatable flip) is compared to target's armour stat. Does the result need to equal or exceed the target's armour, for a single quantum of damage? If it exceeds by 5, 10, 15 (etc) then another 1, 2, 3 (etc) quanta of damage is inflicted, right? Thanks.

    Penetration flips

    Oh brill - hope that is the case. Makes more sense logically and mathematically. 'Armour' is the Target Number that you need to reach to inflict damage (then multiples of five above). That would make sense. Thank you.

    "On the boat" sounds promising. Hope that's the case. Hopefully when I get back from hols in September they'll be waiting for me.

    Monday Preview - Undercover Agent

    Isn't this much more likely to be something from the forthcoming TTB book? edit: oops just read page 2 of this thread and I see I've been ninja-ed! Ignore me!

    Worcester Shindig - Sunday 1st July 2018

    We're nearly all ready to go for Sunday's Worcester Shindig event. It looks like we have eight players which will make it a small (but not insubstantial) affair. If there are any later entrants please let me know asap. The rulespack can be downloaded from https://www.dropbox.com/s/83tvbctluo68t63/Rules Pack - Worcester Shindig 2018.pdf?dl=0 though I'll have some hard copies on the day so it's not necessary to print these out. Please note I've revised the rulespack slightly again. As well as dropping the painting requirement, I've also dropped the requirement to pre-register at bag-o-tools.com. Given that size of the event and the lack of internet at the venue I'm going to manage the scoring and ranking 'Old Skool'. I've only received payment from four of the players. If you haven't paid, please do so beforehand (£15 by paypal to brass.monkey.malifaux@gmail.com) or pay in cash at the event. The list of confirmed entrants is: Rik Philips (Rikk) Steve aka Oso Oco Oz Goff Craig Colley (Reservoir Dog) Shaun Mitchell Phil Parker Karl McConnell Declan Larcombe If anybody has any special needs, or if you have any questions, please let me know beforehand. Thank you, Mat Richardson-Jack (aka “Brass Monkey”) brass.monkey.malifaux@gmail.com Henchman ~ Worcester War Games

    Obsidian Gate Results

    Our experience exactly. You can see from the activity in this forum that there was an inevitable drop in numbers as the campaign progressed. However, as AmKhaibitu said, we may still play this campaign further. At the very least it has certainly raised TTB's profile amongst what had previously been very much a malifaux-centric group of gamers, and we will now see more TTB being played regularly in the store. Thanks again, Mason.

    Oh man! You've just set the delivery date back another couple of months. Don't ever anger the Kickstarter gods!

    Free RPG day? The Show Must Go On?

    Hi, I've seen an event shared to the TTB face book group for a Free RPG Day event. They'll be running a penny dreadful called The Show Must Go On. There's another reference to this on the Free RPG Day website (apparently the physical packs for retailers to buy have sold out), but nothing on these forums. Are these physical packs the only way to get hold of this for Free RPG Day? Presumably in the future it will be available for purchase as normal? Thanks. Mat

    Faction action.

    The main Wyrd website gives a good overview of the fluff and each faction. You probably want to check out this bit: https://www.wyrd-games.net/malifaux-resurrectionist

    Worcester Shindig - Sunday 1st July 2018

    Please note there is now no painting requirement for this event. Painted models are still encouraged and there will be an optional painting competition, but players are free to bring along whatever models they have built and based. The rulespack has been amended accordingly.
  17. It's two-and-a-half weeks until the 'Worcester Shindig' tournament (Sunday 1st July) and I'm hoping to finalise some of the planning (including prize support!). It's a friendly three-round 50-stone event, with two-and-a-half hour round lengths and pre-announced strategies/schemes. £15 to enter which includes lunch. Venue is 'Worcester War Games' (Worcester UK). There are still plenty of places available, so if you're interested please head over to the tournament's forum thread for more information and a links to the rules pack: "Click Here". Let me know if you have any questions, and hopefully see some of you there!

    A Couple of Questions About CA Actions

    Yes, yes and sort-of-yes. It's the projectile (gun) symbol that determines wheher you need to randomize if targeting engaged models and whether you can take the action whilst engaged yourself. Conversely, if you're using a Ca or Sh action and there's no projectile (gun) symbol then you don't need to randomize and can take the action whilst engaged yourself. I think that strictly speaking a melee action is one that uses the Ml statistic, so it doesn't really make sense to "use a Ca action in melee" but if there's no projectile symbol (gun) then you can target a nearby model with a Ca action that you are engaged with/by.

    Final thoughts...

    @Mason Thank you for this event. We signed up fully intending to run the whole campaign but instead only managed the first act across two sessions. However we had great fun and may continue the campign even after the event ends, or at least I might pinch some of the ideas for our own campaigns. It has also led to a greater interest in TTB in our local group and we're hoping to run more TTB going forwards. I'd be interested to see any summary facts and figures after the event closes - any characters that routinely died, or who bulldozed their way through everything? Any anecdotes of inspired story-telling along the way? Thanks again. Looking forward to next year's event.
  20. Hey folks. I have another couple of really basic questions that I should have probably asked yonks ago but was too ashamed to ask! Firstly, if a player chooses to reveal a scheme then I assume they must do so at the very outset of the game, not at any point they choose before the game ends? Is that right? Secondly, if a stat trigger lists two suits then does the model need to meet either trigger or both triggers? I would have thought it's the former but I know I could be wrong. Thank you.
  21. Brass Monkey

    back to basics: a couple more!

    Ah ok thanks. So I was right about first but you need BOTH suits for latter. Good to know - thanks.

  25. Hey folks, I've created an updated version of the Puppet Wars Cards pdf. Click here to download it. A couple of issues with the original version have been fixed and I've added the Teddy models (as discussed in a couple of other threads in this forum). I've also added a summary of what models were released in each Puppet Wars box (both versions). Hope this is useful. If you have any questions, comments or feedback then please let me know. Thank you. Brass Monkey
