Two forces both wish to occupy
an abandoned castle located on our fair lands, and must race to it,
keeping the other side at bay while attempting to gain advantages
for the final fight!
fighting schedule for Warren War:
plan is to have a campaign of quick scenarios, each lasting 5-10
minutes, with 5 minute breaks between fights. The war point
scenarios all confer a small benefit in the final time castle
assault scenario, but each leadup scenario is fairly
straightforward. Archery will be in play every other scenario, in
order to have time to gleam and reinspect ammunition.
- Open Field Battle, 10 min, unlimited resurrection, last man
standing at 10 min.
two sides meet on the open field, and hostilties are not far
Champion battle, followed immediately by an
open field battle, no resurrection, archery allowed. Last man
standing claims the point. Champion battle is worth 1 war point,
with the field battle worth another 1.
bridge near the castle gives access to the moat, and must be
battle. 10 mins, unlimited resurrection, no archery. The objective
is to hold the center of the bridge for as much time as possible,
time will be recorded. There is a twist, there will be two boats,
one for each side that will be in play that can be used to assault
the bridge. Worth 1 war point. The winner of this battle will gain
the use of 1 boat to use in the final scenario.
keys to the castle have been lost in a nearby marsh, and both
forces seek to secure first entry to the castle.
battle: 1 resurrection, archery allowed. This will be similar to a
bridge battle, in that there are water hazards that seek to swallow
the unwary, but there are multiple paths that lead to the central
objective. The goal of this scenario is to get the treasure chest
in the center of the field, and bring it back to your resurrection
point. Chest bearers will need full gauntlets. Worth 1 war point,
and the winner will have choice whether to attack or defend first
in the final scenario.
field battle. 10 min, unlimited resurrection, no weapons over 6
feet, no archery. Last man standing called at 10 minutes. No war
points, this one is just for fun.
fighting has moved to the village outside the castle, as vital
supplies must be secured.
battle: 1 resurrection, archery allowed. There will be 3 buildings,
each containing a bag of food. Each bag that is brought back to
your resurrection point will give your side an additional
resurrection in the final scenario. Worth 1 war point.
field battle. 10 min, unlimited resurrection, no archery, no
shields. Last man standing at 10 minutes. Another fight for the fun
of it, no war points.
castle is secured, and must be held against all comers!
assault. Both sides will have to attack and defend the castle, side
to do it faster wins the scenario. There will be a castle gate with
a bridge and moat. The winner of the Marsh battle will have choice
to go first or second. The winner of the Bridge battle will have a
boat to assist their assault. And finally for every bag of food
secured in the city fight your side will have 1 extra resurrection
when defending. Archery allowed, base resurrections for the
defender is 1, with attackers having unlimited. Worth 3 war points
to the faster time.
Scenarios planned out by Charles
Grenier (Arabos), our Shire Warmonger. Feel free to ask
question or get clarifications, and looking forward to seeing you
