Campaign Finale - All-Day Game - March 18th

I'm putting this here so we can discuss the all-day game. I've got most of it planned out, but some of it will have to be sorted on the day as we don't know people's final allegiances or even how many factions will be left standing at the end of all this (although Tom's run out of Targaryens to kill off, which helps :P).

The plan is to do a final round of standard games in the morning followed by the second battle of the Trident in the afternoon (we have that big river, so why not), with the winning faction siezing control of the Iron Throne. This will be the Bloodbath scenario on an 8'x6' table (possibly bigger, not sure yet), and with a few tweaks to setup zones and turn sequence to account for all the players and factions. I'm expecting it to be a bit chaotic.

Boasts will work as normal, but a few of them will need tweaking/clarifying for use with multiple sides. Some will get considerably more difficult as a result, I don't think any will get significantly easier. ;D

If anyone's got any questions, just ask.

Also, I know Shawn can't make it on the day. If anyone else is going to miss it, please let us know ASAP.

Anyone in brackets is someone who may not be able to make it.

Rob - please provide a suitable hill - large enough for the Night's Watch!

I've finished sorting out the boasts and quests, and also put together the scenario. Let me know what you think.

Hi Rob
Couple of questions.
1) Are neutrals subject to wild charges, both as targets and controlling their own units?
2) can campaign glory be spent to influence the battle? I.e. respawning units, moving neutral units (Lannister's pay their debts), taking an extra turn etc?
These would only be available to factions declared at the beginning of the battle, as they bring everything to the field and stop fence sitting until everyone else is crippled?

Daniel Phillips

Several boasts say "You must rout/destroy the highest points value unit from all the enemy forces on the table". Assuming the "You" refers to the player not the faction this means that only 1 player from each faction can win any of these?

Also what if "the highest points value unit from all the enemy forces on the table" changes in play? (ie a fence sitting player joins a faction and has a higher value unit than any unit already in that faction).

Can a player change factions during the game?
Warning: This post may contain sarcasm.

No. Players that have not joined a faction do not take a turn so there is no opportunity for them to make wild charges.

No. Glory is purely used to determine the individual winner (as opposed to the winning faction) and for bragging rights.

Correct. Some coordination with your co-commanders may be in order. Or alternatively, a little competition is good for the soul.

It seems unlikely to be an issue given the forces involved (the Night's Watch don't have expensive units) but I guess it's possible. So let's make it the highest points value unit at the time you select your boast, since there'll probably be a tie and you'll have to write down your specific target anyway.

Neutral forces that declare this kind of boast should probably avoid allying with their target. :D

No. It would be very appropriate to the scenario, but just too much of a headache to work out.
