The action took place on an island in the River of Cradles within the Rig Rubble of Pavis. In the picture below the Storm Bulls entered from the boat at top right and the Cult of Pavis from a raft just off-picture at bottom right. The Broo (and their allies) began around the altar in the centre of the board.
Mark Preston, in his first wargame, ran the Broos. They were accompanied by a Scorpion-man and a Jack-o-Bear.
Jamie was in charge of the Cult of Pavis war party. They were a mix of adventurer types including a Flintnail Dwarf and a Morokanth.
The objective of the Cult of Pavis was to recover a set of scrolls that the Broo leader was using to perform a ritual at the altar. The Storm Bulls, of course, just wanted to "Kill Chaos!" And the creatures of Chaos themselves? Well they just wanted to survive and kill things!
|Hench and Slaghammer of the Cult of Pavis take on |
Greensting the Scorpion-man
|The Storm Bulls arrive!|
|Having seen off Hench and caused Slagghammer|
to flee, Greensting and a Broo attack the Morokanth.
|Whilst a fierce melee goes on between the remainder of the Chaos faction|
and the Storm Bulls.
|Almost unnoticed, The Thief made off with the scrolls.|
Do you have the scrolls?
No, I always walk like this.
|The Storm Bulls, having driven off or killed most of the Broo|
decided to have a go at the Cult of Pavis party next. The Pavic
leader Kiger Hawkwing would go down under their blows...
|... while Slaghammer the dwarf and Belloth Thighcrusher the|
Morokanth fought the last of the Broos.
As the Cult of Pavis are one of the three factions scoring points on the on-going campaign ladder (along with the Lunars and the Orlanthi Rebels) we rolled to see what had actually happened to their "dead".
Kiger and Hench both escaped despite wounds that will keep them out of the next action. Slaghammer the Dwarf was more fortunate; able to throw off his wounds, he will be back next time.
So with two skirmishes fought, both the Lunars and the Cult of Pavis have one win each.
