Rasputina vs Mei Feng- The Mountains North of Promise

The Ten Thunder asset of Promise is growing beyond the frontier town it was built as. New caches discovered in the northern mountains bring more potential wealth to the Three Kingdoms and attract prospectors aplenty. Mei Feng seeks to expand the railroad up into the mountains to bring this wealth back through the breach. From their icy fastnesses Rasputina and her followers watch the intruders struggle through the snowy pass.

Viktorias vs Molly- The Southgate Slums

No one considers the Southgate slums much of an asset, this is why the University of Transmortis has long flourished beneath these dank and dirty streets. Von Schtook, head of the university has been awfully quite of late and has refused all contact with the other Resurrectionists. Molly has taken it upon herself to find out what has happened to the eccentric professor. She does so love his little lessons over the vox. A mysterious client has hired the Viks to extract the Professor from the University and to get rid of any witnesses. Hopefully Molly has brought back up!

The next round of the campaign will take place at Outer Limits on the 18th of June 2018 from 19:00. Please PM if you would like to join in for the fun.

Size: 40SS

Cache Bonus: Painted Master 1SS     Theme Bonus 1SS

Pairings:

Viktorias vs Mei Feng

The Viks failed to bring their target to their mysterious benefactor which has left him somewhat displeased, and them out of script. They are, however, not the only contractor to disappoint the stranger lately. They can earn their scrip by showing his other employee how displeased he is. The are given merely a location and a name; Promise-Mei Feng. Lucky them.

Sandeep vs Molly.

Having failed to retrieve the artefact from the Necropolis Sandeep must seek the counsel of with the less than savoury Von Schtook. While the man is clearly insane his lengthy but erratic research within Malifaux has unearthed some valid sources of arcana over the years. Sandeep was much surprised to find Molly in the University Transmortis, just as she was surprised to see yet another potential threat to Resurrectionist interests in the dilapidated structures. Inevitably there would be a disagreement

Rasputina vs Lilith

Rasputina picks at bits of stringy rail worker and recovers from the ordeal of chasing off the trespassers to her mountain fastnesses. She is drawn to a distant movement outlined against the setting sun. Bat like wings and a horned head can only mean one thing in these parts... Nekima. The Neverborn were coming. She knows not what they want but she does know they will not be getting far in the snow. Not if she has anything to say about it.

Lady Justice vs Somer Teeth Jones

Business as usual for Lady Justice. When the Bayou gets rowdy, she puts it back in its place. Six-barrel persuasion. Guild style.

Strats and schemes to be released on the day.

Cabal Malifaux Campaign Week 3:

CREW SIZE 45SS                                                                                                Theme Bonus +1 SS to Cache

Painting Bonus to Cache: At least 1 model previously unpainted now painted +1 SS to cache

Pairings:

Sandeep vs Mei Feng- Northern Hills

Strategy:

·         Symbols of Authority-Corner

Schemes:

·         Punish the Weak

·         Covert Breakthrough     

·         Search the Ruins

·         Undercover Entourage (Mei Feng)

·         Take Prisoner (Sandeep)

Things have not been going well for Mei Feng. First her work in the mountains was stopped by Rasputina, then the Viktorias arrived with some contract on her life. She heads back to the city to consult her masters and discover the identity of her original employer. Sandeep heads northwards to seek solitude for his teachings in the northern mountains, perhaps intending to establish a Gurdwara here away from Guild interference. In the hills between Malifaux city and promise he encounters one he previously thought to be an ally in the Arcanist ranks. Something is amiss though, she is haggard and looks as if she has not slept in days. At the appearance of the Guru and his disciples Mei’s rail workers became defensive immediately, the last few days had been harsh. They would escape quickly rather than risk another betrayal.

 

Rasputina vs Molly- Slate Ridge

Von Schtook handed Molly a badly bound and ink stained parcel shortly after she escorted him from the university to safer lodgings. Most of it was insane rambling and indecipherable scribbles. As she paged through it one repeated image drew her attention. An eclectic mix of steam-work and biology, an anatomical drawing of a sphere with several arterial growths, drawn from different angles on different pages. No mention of its purpose or use but several references to Slate Ridge. When a folded and faded map fell from the scrap collection of pages Molly could not help being intrigued. There might be a story in these mad ramblings after all.

Strategy:

·         Guard the Stash -Standard Deployment

Schemes:

·         Search the Ruins (Molly)

·         Guarded Treasure (Rasputina)

·         Recover Evidence

·         Undercover Entourage

·         Inescapable Trap

 

Viktorias vs Lilith- Badlands Showdown

Having redeemed herself in the eyes of her benefactor the Viks are pleased to find a wire transfer for a large amount of scrip wired to their holdings awaiting them at their basecamp. Another envelope awaits them in their lodgings, its neat spidery handwriting reveals to them another “offer”, complete with a substantial price tag, should they be willing to go after the individuals who derailed the original Ten Peaks expedition. While the Viktorias consider this offer panicked cries break out around the shanty towns as miners run for their lives. From the shadows come devilish creatures, Nephilim, rumours had been that they were in the area. The creatures seem single minded in their assault on the town, headed straight toward the Viks’ accommodation in the tavern. This seems personal

Strategy:

·         Head-hunter -Close Deployment

Schemes:

·         Eliminate the Leadership (Lilith)

·         Take One for the Team

·         Covert Breakthrough

·         Hold up their Forces

·         Show of Force (Viktorias)

 

McMourning vs Lady Justice- The Quarantine Zone

Lady Justice has long found something off about Douglas McMourning. His hours, strange stints of absenteeism, odour. Not to mention the missing cadavers. Recently a well-liked and respected Guild clerk passed on during a cholera outbreak. Strange now that he has been seen roaming the streets of the Quarantine Zone when he should be tagged in the Guild morgue. She follows these reports to the heart of the quarantine zone when suddenly the living dead are all around her posse and they must fight for their lives. She is sure she can hear the familiar and annoying voice of the coroner somewhere here, if she catches him she will finally be able to excise him as the cancer he is.

Strategy:

·         Public Executions- Flank Deployment

Schemes:

·         Eliminate the Leadership

·         Dig their Graves

·         Recover Evidence (Justice)

·         Show of Force

·         Undercover Entourage (McMourning)

 

Somer Teeth Jones vs Tara- Northern Bayou

Fleeing Malifaux City Tara and her crew stash aboard the train to Edge Point. Shortly before it pulls into the town they make a break for the shelter of the Bayou, to regroup and refocus themselves. Somer Teeth Jones was just getting into the “lost” baggage his boys had liberated from those nice folks out on the wagon trail when some humans came a stomping into his bayou! No ways they were taking their rightfully earned loot. Tara must think quickly if they are to escape, gremlins may be small and greedy by if they feel like a scrap they can be downright dangerous.

Strategy:

·         Supply Wagons- Standard Deployment

Schemes:

·         Guarded Treasure (Somer)

·         Take Prisoner

·         Show of Force

·         Take one for the Team (Tara)

·         Dig their Graves

Rasputina vs Tara- Hidden Breach, Ten Peaks

Rasputina’s plans temporarily derailed heads back to the mountain strongholds.

McMourning vs Somer Teeth- Northern Badlands

Preferably ones less likely to put up a fight and more prone to paying their problems away. Or with a sizeable still.

Heavily injured after her attempt to flush out McMourning from the ressurectionist hordes Lady Justice Limps back into the city. Mei Feng, similarly bedraggled and exhausted just wishes to return to the Qi and Gong for some rest with what little of her goods she has salvaged. No rest for the wicked though, a warrant has reached the Lady which speaks of recent troubles along the northern frontier. Mei Feng is wanted for questioning by the Governor’s secretary.

Strategy:

·         Supply Wagons- Corner Deployment

Schemes:

·         Guarded Treasure (Mei Feng)

When the dust settled Sandeep and Rasputina found themselves at loggerheads over who was really running things. A good ol' game of Henchman Hardcore settled the draw in favour of Sandeep. The resurrectionist forces were close behind with Molly in 3rd and McMourning in 4th place. 5th went to Viktorias, 6th Resser Tar, 7th Lady Justice, Lilith in 8th and Mei Feng bringing up the rear. Henchman game was for the odd player and amusingly all his opponents managed to give him a sound thrashing. Ended the league on a high note with a braai and 7 person game of Enforcer Brawl. Looking forward to more fun in 3e. If you want a bite come and join us at the Cabal on Monday evenings. Outer Limits Pretoria, Java centre.
