  3. Come and join us for Malifaux gaming at the LVO 2018! Purchase your Malifaux ticket here: http://www.lasvegasopen.net/ Balleys, Las Vegas Nevada Friday : Enforcer Brawl 12:00 pm Start Time 4:00 pm End Time Max Players 24 Wyrd Official Enforcer Brawl Format: The Enforcer Brawl is an arena death match where players take their favorite Enforcers and wreak as much mayhem as possible! This is a great format to use if you have spent all day playing competitively and your group is looking for something more laid back for the evening. It is also a great way to spend an afternoon if you want something different. This format is best played with between 4 and 8 participants; if your group has more people than this, you may want to consider breaking up into multiple Enforcer Brawls which are played simultaneously.Rules:Each player selects one Enforcer and attaches up to one Upgrade to it. The Upgrade must be something the Enforcer could have attached at the start of a normal game considering its Faction(s). (Leader only Upgrades may not be selected, for example.) The Enforcer must be one with a Cost which may be hired (no Coryphee Duets, for example). The game is played on a standard table. Each player flips a card to determine deployment order; the player who flips highest deploys first, followed by the second highest, etc., until each player has deployed their Enforcer. If two or more players are tied, they reflip amongst themselves. Models may be deployed anywhere on the table which is more than 6” from another model. Play proceeds for 6 rounds. Each round, all players flip for initiative; the player who flips highest must go first, followed by the second highest, etc. until all players have gone. If two or more players are tied, they reflip amongst themselves. If a model receives Reactivate, it receives a second Activation at initiative -1 (if multiple models Reactivate, they flip to determine which goes first). Before the game, assign a suit (R, t, etc.) to each table edge. On a player’s initiative, if they have no models in play or buried, they must flip a card which may not be cheated (reflipping jokers). The player places a new copy of the model they chose at the start of the Brawl (including its Upgrade) within 6” of the board edge corresponding to the suit flipped and then proceeds with their Activation as normal. Restrictions: The Enforcer Brawl has the following restrictions/rules:Players have a hand of 4 cards, instead of the usual 6.Any Actions, Abilities, or Triggers which summon models are considered to be “blank” (they may not be used and have no effect on the game, as if they were not printed on the model).When a model is buried, it may choose to be sacrificed instead (in which case it counts as sacrificed by the model which forced it to become buried). Scoring: At the end of 6 Turns, the player with the highest Victory Points wins. Players score VP in the following manner:3 VP for each opposing model killed or sacrificed. A player scores 4 VP instead if the model they killed or sacrificed had a higher Soulstone Cost (including the cost of Upgrades) than their model did.1 VP for dealing 1 or more damage to an undamaged enemy (this may stack with killing the model). A player scores 2 VP instead if the model they damaged had a higher Soulstone Cost (including the cost of Upgrades) than their model did-3 VP for each time the player’s model was killed or sacrificed.Groups are encouraged to come up with their own variant methods of scoring by including things like hidden Schemes, bonus points for killing certain models, area control, rules for attaching more Upgrades, etc. These are the base rules, have fun with them! Friday: Henchman Hardcore 5:00 pm Start Time 7:30 pm End Time Max Players 24 Wyrd Official Henchman Hardcore Format: Henchman Hardcore is a tournament version of Malifaux which focuses on quick, brutal decision making. It is perfect for a group which wants to face a new challenge and experiment with Malifaux in a slightly different environment. The key differences between Henchman Hardcore and regular Malifaux are the reduced game size (20 Soulstones) and the fact that all Crews must be led by a Henchman. Due to the emphasis on speed it may not be the best format for new players, but this can be overcome by adjusting the round times to the needs of your group. Restrictions: Henchman Hardcore is different from standard Malifaux in the following ways: All Crews must be led by a Henchman, not a Master.The game size is 20 Soulstones. All Crews must contain exactly 4 models, no more, no less. Upgrades may be purchased, as allowed by the standard rules of Malifaux. The size of a Crew’s Soulstone Pool is limited by the Cache of the Henchman leading it; any Soulstones above this amount are discarded.Any Actions, Abilities, or Triggers which summon models are considered to be “blank” (they may not be used and have no effect on the game, as if they were not printed on the model).Only one Scheme will be available.The same Crew must be used in each round of the event. Set Up: All rounds use the following set up: Deployment: Close. Strategy: Hardcore Turf War. This Strategy uses the Turf War rules (Core Rulebook pg. 66) with the exception that VP may be scored on the first Turn. Scheme Pool: Assassinate (Core Rulebook pg. 68). This is the only Scheme available and it must always be taken. Tournament Rules: Use Gaining Grounds to determine pairings and score the event to determine the winner. Only the round times are different from the Gaining Grounds tournament standard: All round times are 30 minutes. Saturday: Broken Promises, Vegas Style 50 SS Gaining Grounds Tournament 10:00 am Registration 10:30 am Start Time 7:30 pm End time if 3 Rounds. 9:00 pm End Time if 4 Rounds. Each round is 105 minutes plus 10 minutes for setup Lunch from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm Paint and basing required (basing has to have at least paint, sand or flock on it) Max Players 24 Sunday: “Malifaux Open Gaming” 10:00am to 6:00pm Free to participate in with the purchase of your Convention Badge. Play fun, easy pickup games with fellow Malifaux enthusiasts!

  10. So I am a pretty good DM for other systems. I've played TTB a couple of times at my local store in pick up games, but I've never Fatemastered before. So naturally I got convinced to run a game at a nearby convention. Submitting events is still open, but I have no idea what Penny Dreadful to run... I've run organized play events for D&D for a few years so I think I've got the basics down as far as organizing this. Just the adventure is the hard one to pick out and allocating for the time. So far I have access to the following: Honor Among Thieves In The Gutter Legacy of Darkness Night In Rottenburg(Seems long...) Recruitment Drive Crossroad 7's box set I also know there are several inside the Wyrd Chronicles that I could possibly run. The main thing is I want something that is Fun with equal parts combat and roleplaying. What do you suggest? I am willing to buy a new Penny Dreadful if necessary.

  24. So Dexcon is a large convention in NJ for RPGs, LARPs, Boardgames, etc. They are trying to build up their wargaming community and I was approved to run Malifaux Demos on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In addition we will have 2 small fun events on Saturday for more experienced Malifaux players. It looks like a big convention with plenty to do, and 1 price gets you into almost everything! The first event will take place late afternoon, and will be an enforcer brawl. Each player gets 10 points to spend on a single enforcer, upgrades, and soulstones (no killjoy!). 3-8 players will then enter their enforcer in the arena for a free for all battle. 4 card hand, enforcers can use soulstones, and you get 1 point for each model killed, 2 points for being the last model standing. We will run as many rounds as possible in a 2 hour timeframe. The second event will take place at night, and will be a 4-8 person 2 round Hardcore tournament with only 2 tables. What that means is if we get 4 or less players we will have hardcore singles, if we have 5 or more then we will have hardcore teams. 20 soulstone, henchman led crews, 4 model maximum, No Painting requirement. feel free to message me any questions!

Please do sign up at your earliest convenience if you're interested in attending so we can have a good idea on potential turnout. You will have to wait to get approval to sign up after registering with Warhorn because of the way the site works, but it would be tremendously helpful to me and the convention organizers if you would do so. Circus Circus is offering discounted hotel rates for attendees (there's a link to the reservation system on the RAGECon homepage as well). We're less than 2 hours from Sacramento (I plan to be at Califaux with some of our local players in a couple weeks) and 3-4 hours from most places in the Bay Area, and I know there are regular buses running from those places to the nearby bus station if you're not inclined to drive up yourself.
