    Once again, nicely done!

    Looks like a typo in the last panel. Think it should be “the dog . . . “

    Hells teeth! Erland really knows how to get into trouble.

    He’s going to have it in for that sorcerer when he catches up with her. She’ll need more then just a few skeletons up her sleeve when he does.

    Book Keeping time.
    Erlands 3 stats are 11 combined.
    This means that for every 11 points of foes vitality he defeats he gets 1 XP.
    (So killing 6 bandits that are P2,W1,V2, would result in 12 points, 6 times their V2)
    This can be converted to 1 XP with 1 point left over.

    Looking at the past Chronicles I see he has defeated 57 points of enemy Vitality, so this is 5 XP  (1 XP per 11 points) and 2 points left over.
    Erland has been in 4 Chronicles now and we also get 1 Legend Point for every 2 Chronicles, so he as 2 Legend Points.

    I swap the 4XP to buy an ability, I choose Fearless (he has learnt the dead can indeed be killed) so this makes sense.

    Legend Points are quite handy and I feel they may come in handy quite soon…

    You really do an awfully good job on these. It’s great fun seeing your excellent paint and modelling work “in action”, and the episodes always read well, having loads of the atmosphere one wants in the genre. Two quick questions: do you play these games solo? What make are the skellies?

    Thank you!

    Thanks all!

    Yes solo. Probably best as the photos take an age!

    Looks like the first nemesis is the sorceress.
    These had been a fun read.

    Really enjoyed the latest chapter, especially the use of “thewed”!  A very classic read.  But now our hero has 3 different things going on, and I can’t wait to see what he does next!

    Wow, 6 months since my last game report.
    I am wondering if I should just post up normal game reports without the comic book styling?

    I could probably do 5 times as many if they were less fancy.
    But would they be as cool to look at/read?

    Pfffffhhhh. I really like the comic style format. And, tbh, I think doing it that way myself and search for techniques doing it – if and when I get my bandwith problems under control.
    I really started wondering why you didn´t post updates anymore. But I understand that´s a lot of work every single time. And considering all the things happening over the last months…. And, what I´ve always wondered about, how the die rolls were in some situations.
    OTH, those comic style AAR´s are a really great way to promote the rules and the minis on your website. It´s something different and a real unique selling point on your site. You should consider this.

    I also like these comic book style reports, they’re different from the usual battle reports out there and also suit the world really well. However, it might be a nice idea to do one in novel style (like Conan) but that me even more work

    Very cool, and a great example of the magic system in the rules too

    Personally, I like to read game reports.  The comic style is certainly eye catching and cool, but I don’t think you need to do that every time you want to share, especially if it is time intensive.  You can always go back later and stage shots,etc, and recreate it in the comic format for marketing and bling bling.

    SO please do post up your games, comic style or not!

    Nice! I was wondering where the dog came from.

    Tired is enough.

    Nice! I was wondering where the dog came from.

    Not sure if you were or are, but if you are, it was from here:

    Can’t recall which flavour though.

    I meant in your game I didn’t see the dog with the slavers or Erland, then Yel Ata appears.

    Tired is enough.

    ah, it is the faithful hound of Yel Ata.

    A good story, a lot of room for exaggeration when they boast about it at an inn too.

    I have that dog and it killed two Orcs in the game I ran for my new Grandkids last night.

    Great game, and the legend of Erland will for sure grow even larger with the freed slaves telling!

    I really like the muted colors you’ve used on all of your tents so far, really look great.
