    Master Roulette ?

    This sounds a lot like the "who's the boss" format from Warmachine. Its entirely casual (though you can set it up like a tournament). Basically they put all the available casters in a big pile and spin a wheel to see which one is available each round. You build your fixed list first, but thats sort of how war machine does things. Its a lot of fun, and the "fixed list" part of it means you might end up with some masters who do nothing for your list, or are completely broken. The issue with Malifaux is that a lot of masters have support pieces or totems who are really core to their play style (like the Victorias). Since this is just a fun event kind of thing, it sort of evens out when you have things like Lady J leading some ressers, or Hoffman leading some gremlins. This randomness creates a lot of silly experiences you don't see in regular play. Maybe do something where you fix a list of 30-35 stones from your declared faction before you spin the wheel and finish your list from that master's faction and hiring pool. This type of event sounds like a blast!

    (Spoilers) Speculation on Chronicles 33 story

    Do we still need to stop for spoilers? Like, isn't this a month old and stuff other stuff two more lines of stuff Isn't the soulstone just charged by death "energy" and not actually the person's soul? I remember hearing one of the stories where they could do things to get more "charge" out of a death to charge more than one stone, and how they thought it was silly to call it a "soul" stone when it doesn't actually have the person's soul. (think it was Kaeris's origin)

    Current "tech" for Enforcer Brawl

    in enforcer brawl, when you respawn, do you respawn with any discarded upgrades, or are those only one use? (looking at you, recalled training)

    Tarot Deck Sleeves

    I want to confirm that @dancater's sleeves work fine: I got some myself and they fit. Thanks for doing the legwork on this!

    Tarot Deck Sleeves

    I bought these at Gencon as well. I went in to 3 different FLGS, and didn't find any sleeves that fit these. One of them even had the UltimateGuard Playmat with all the sleeve sizes, and this deck doesn't fit for any of the standard Tarot sizes. They also had several sleeves for various board games that are close, but not the same. @Aaron: Can you provide some input on the sleeves we're supposed to use for the Tarot deck? Was this just a collectable, and not meant for play?

    How did you pick your first master?

    huh, I played war machine as well, and discovered I apparently have a thing for gun mages. Makes sense that Perdita was my first master in Malifaux.

    Handicap cards for vets when paired against noobs

    This game is hard enough to learn without house rules. Since they are likely to have a limited model pool, it might be good to limit yours as well. Taking a Master's full crew is good, and try to stay in theme. Also, try to leave certain power pieces at home (Why, exactly, is Papa Loco running around with Sonia and a Death Marshall?) I emphasize the "don't be a jerk!" mentality. I think if you're playing against a new player, discussion beforehand is a good thing (You're running McMorning, but Santiago here has this ability where he can pitch a card to remove poison). Also discussion after the game is a good thing: talk about the "good plays" and the "bad plays".

    Scouting Opponent Crews

    I think "peeking into a bag" is crossing a line. These are some pretty expensive models, and the worst NPE is to have your army stolen. We, as a community, need to be vigilant against this. Keep out of other people's things without their permission.
