Amesbury, MA: Nov 1, 2014 50SS STORY ENCOUNTERS Tournament


Recommended Posts

The next (and final) tournament in the 2014 tournament season is already upon us! This tournament should prove to be a lot of fun, focusing more on providing a narrative experience, which your games will help shape! Feel free to ask any questions or any comments here, PM me on the forums, or be sure to check out our Facebook Group, Amesbury Malifaux Players (A.M.P. It up!).


The Barnaby County Fair is upon us. A time for celebration with much joy and merriment to be had by all. However, in the world of Malifaux, one should be prepared for any, shall we say, situation...
