Something involving zombies seems appropriate.

Zombies are not a problem. It's the "something" that I'm struggling with.

Well we could always fall back on Dead's Army but that might bore some people who've run it at shows a few times.

If you are around tonight Rob I could discuss with you a fun game we played a few years ago at the Kriegsspiel Society which was called after the anime "High School of the Dead". Each player had a group of students of different abilities and the idea was to escape from a zombie infested college campus.

I'll throw this one in for consideration...

Taking up the Deads Army theme, plus Pikemans Lament from last night....

What about running Deads Army on one board, and re-spawning continuously any killed onto a second board from 1644 ish, where they then attack a peasant village which is supported by some musketry/pikes from the period, and the zombies/newly killed take any weapons with them that they had?

Just a thought.

You're welcome to join in, Chris, but you won't need your orcs. The scenario is heroes vs. undead and I have plenty of skeletons, zombies, a suitable necromancer and all the heroes we need.

Scenery Request for Monday 1st November.

Hi Mike,

May I borrow a couple of the Javis ruins for Monday (and Sandy's game day on the 6th), please? I believe there is a large-ish cemetery, which would be ideal, and also one of the large ruins or two of the smaller ones.

Thanks,
Colin

Chris Davies

I'ii have to cancel; health reasons!
