Dungeon Saga Alpha Rules Game

Post by Virral »

Howdy folks,

I'm pretty pumped about Dungeon Saga, the latest KS offering from Mantic. They've released their Alpha rules with the basics, and it looks like fun! I'm looking for volunteers to control the Heroes and play through the three scenarioes provided (two introductory and then one slightly longer).

Stuff you need:

1) Go check out the Kickstarter if you haven't already!
2) Get the Alpha Rules here.
3) Watch this gameplay video (it's delightfully awkward in places, fair warning).

We'll start with Journey from the West, which introduces movement and fighting. There are two slots open, Barbarian and Dwarf.

First dibs go to Suffer and the_13th, but if you're interested put your hand up because we'll soon be playing the Elf and Wizard in Journey from the East, before uniting all four heroes in the excitingly named "Scenario 1".

Ok, well really then it's down to Suffer and Mathfuric kicking things off. Please use Orokos for rolls, and roll for yourself and the Skeletons you're attacking at once. Don't forget to include facing if it's changing, using up, down, left and right.

Normal turn would look something like this:

Dwarf Moves to C2 (facing right)
Attacks Skeleton Warrior in D1: 6, 4, 3, 3, 1 vs 6, 4 = 2 Hits!
Skeleton becomes Bonepile.

PS: I'll update that "Know your enemy" section to something that includes all of the Monster stats, not just armour.

Once we are up and running, I'll also set up a separate thread with Journey from the East and we can have both of the beginner scenarios running side by side.

Ok Suffer, lets do what fighters do and move down the corridor side by side killing everything!

I'll move Dwarf to C3 facing Down, keeping my front arcs on pile B4 and D4.

Then Barbarian up C2 facing up and attacking Skeleton D1.

What you think?

Sounds like a plan…

So virral, that would look like;
Barbarian moves to C2 (facing up)
Attacks skeleton in D1; 5,4,3,2 vs 5,2 = 2 hits
Skeleton becomes bone pile

Think I did all that right, let me know if I've stuffed up.

Yep perfect.

Ok, I'm going to play Raise 1 Skeleton, on top of my usual 2 activations.

Bonepile in I1 will raise, facing down.
M1 will move to I2 facing left
M4 will move to I3 facing left.

My naturally cautious side says we should hold back a bit, but if you insist... ;D

Barbarian moves to H2 (facing right)
Attacks skeleton in I2; 5,4,3 vs 3,2 = 2 hits

He does for being outnumbered or surrounded I think, just not for being wounded.

That was my understanding, but I'm happy to roll an extra dice if you want me to ;)

Dwarf move to H3 (facing up)
Attacks skeleton in I3; Attack v Skeleton: 1d6 1 1d6 1 1d6 4 1d6 6 1d6 4 1d6 4 = 1 hit
Skeleton fine

[Had to reroll Attack v Skeleton: 1d6 4 1d6 1 1d6 3 1d6 3 1d6 6 1d6 5... which was 4 hits, because I rolled to many dice :P ]
