Week 1: Informant

Something has happened; ever since that quake a few days ago there’s a tingling in the air, or is it buzzing, no, that’s not right either. Anyone attuned to the stones can tell you something’s changed, what they can’t tell you is what changed.  Rumor has is Slappy Jack’s seen whatever is causing such a stir and you need to find out what he knows before anyone else does.

You find his “camp” in the quarantine zone. Looks like he’s running a one-man salvage operation looking for artifacts of old Malifaux. He’s found a good spot, some of this is worth salvaging. You move into Jack’s camp and you see you’re not alone.  There’s another crew, and something in the ground starts moving. Lots of somethings!

Week 2: Ambush

Slappy Jack was a dead end, but Big Ed, one of your sources, came through, somewhat…  The quake revealed a new soulstone vein.  Once of the biggest veins yet.  Big Ed said there was something here that would lead you to the vein.  He didn’t say what, just that you would know it when you see it.  So fare you don’t see anything, that guide you hired had better have brought you to the right place.

Your crew is spread out, scouring the area.  There’s a shout.  They’ve found the dried-out husk of a man’s body.  There are a few wounds with scorch marks around them. The empty eye sockets, mouth, nostrils also have scorch marks. Is this what you’re looking for?  What is this supposed to tell you?

Everyone goes back to searching while you examine the body.  Then they attack!  They are among you, this was a setup!

Week 3: Pay Back

Big Ed has been hard to find since screwing your over, but your sources have sussed out where he is. Rumor has it he’s been making a good profit selling info on the new soulstone vein, and on those looking for it.  Your revenge may be as profitable as it is satisfying.

There’s where he’s holed up.  Looks well guarded… good, this should be fun.

Bonus completions from this weekly event do stack with any other competitions including those in this game even if the bounty states it cannot be completed in a single game. 

Week 5: Conflux

Something isn’t right.  You’re close, you know that. The energy is getting more intense, it feels like your brain is melting, the unattuned don’t even seem to even notice.  This doesn’t feel like any mine you’ve ever seen.

Ahead are a pair of monoliths of old Malifaux.  No one knows why they are in the god forsaken place or what purpose they served assuming they ever served one.  You’ve seen them at least a dozen times, but never anything like this they are crackling with energy and occasionally an arc sizzles between them for an instant.

We must control of them!

The other Guard the Stash marker is a Dead Zone. While within 2" of the Dead Zone, models may not take Ca Actions and are immune to Ca Actions.

Whenever a model within 2” of a Guard the Stash marker kills or sacrifices an enemy model, the Acting model’s Crew gains 2 Scrip.

Rejuvenating Energy (Weekly Event)

Place a Rejuvenation Marker at the center of the board.  During Upkeep the controller of a model in base contact with the Rejuvenation marker may annihilate one Injury from that model.

Finale: Ascension

Whatever that idiot on the other crew did wasn’t good.  The energy around the monoliths has been getting bigger and more intense for hours now.  You can’t even see them under the energy dome.  It’s hard to hear yourself think with the buzzing.  Even the unattuned won’t get near the thing. Even worse with all the light and noise this place is the worst kept secret this side of the Breach. 

Something is happening.  The dome collapsed there’s a glowing font of magical energy.  It’s so intense don’t dare approach, One of the unattuned will have to investigate.

The energy pouring from the font, burns through anyone sensitive who approaches, but for those who are not sensitive, those with will to master the stones…  it’s transforming them whoever can master the font could be the next master of Malifaux…
