I’ve just heard that my mini-campaign book for Sellswords and Spellslingers, LAST STAND AT MISTHAM, is now due for publication before the end of summer!
A brief post on my blog http://grahamsgaming.blogspot.com/2020/07/scenario-book-for-sellswords.html
Looking good. How do you plan to do the water? By the way, your Venice project put me in mind of the old limerick: A girl who could never play tennis, But at swimming was really a menace, Took pains to explain, “It depends how you train, I’m a former street walker from Venice.” Do you have the figure for it? (So to speak)
I have a mottled blue photography backdrop sheet that I’m using (it’s pre-petrol engines).
For the lass in the limerick how about her?
I didn’t get around to posting an update on my painting log last week so I thought I’d combine the two weeks with my latest construction for my Streets of Venice layout. http://grahamsgaming.blogspot.com/2020/06/more-for-venice-plus-other-painting-to.html04/06/2020 at 08:02 in reply to: New Scenario Book for Sellswords and Spellslingers #137483

Thank you gents, it was a lot of fun to play.
One of the things I like about Sellswords is the fact it’s so flexible and easy to adapt.11/04/2020 at 14:23 in reply to: New Scenario Book for Sellswords and Spellslingers #134639
Thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
Mike – Very excited!
The final game of this campaign (played just before the lockdown). A close run thing! https://tringwargames.blogspot.com/2020/03/the-mungo-mah-lobeh-congo-campaign_31.html
Thomaston – Oh yes!!!
Darkest Star Games – my canals are clear blue and full of fish! My games are mostly Renaissance or fantasy – either way pre-industrial so no motor propellers to stir up the mud!
An interesting read and an unusual setting which makes a change from the more “conventional” fantasy settings.
Game 5 is now on the blog https://tringwargames.blogspot.com/2020/03/the-mungo-mah-lobeh-congo-campaign_13.html
Sold item removed and prices reduced.

Thank you gents.
Mike, we decided that at busy times the bar employed a couple of burly chaps with boathooks to fish out customers who fell over the side.
John, the terrain is from TTCombat https://ttcombat.com/collections/streets-of-venice
Now the third adventure is on the blog https://tringwargames.blogspot.com/2020/02/the-mungo-mah-lobeh-congo-campaign.html

Really is a beautiful set up. Is this the Osprey set? If so, how does it play solo? I seem to remember it had hidden allocation of attack/defence moves or something – how did you get round that?
I preplan the lower strength combatant, then roll randomly for the opponent’s attack combat pool.
That is some great looking terrain! Really cool stuff.
Thank you very much.
That’s a mighty fine battle you engaged in! Nice looking armies. I’m sure the victory will no doubt embolden the Peoples Front of Judea to redouble their efforts. Or maybe the Popular Front.

I’ll give that some serious thought, John.
Thanks.23/12/2019 at 22:48 in reply to: Demons Gate – Sellswords and Spellslingers Campaign #128504
The final chapter of Book Three is now on the blog https://grahamsgaming.blogspot.com/2019/12/demons-gate-sellswords-campaign-chapter_23.html
I suspect it would have been quite different if it had been part of a campaign. My inclination in that situation, would be for the British to ignore the convoy and concentrate on the original target, launch all torpedoes in a nice criss-crossing spread, into the harbour and across the Type 34’s escape route, then leg it, hoping to take out the biggest threat for the next game.
However, that would have been a pretty boring evening for 3 players who were after a fun game for 2-3 hours. Horses for courses!
I don’t think the German High Command will be overly impressed with the result either. Perhaps say both sides lost rather than calling it a draw?07/12/2019 at 08:19 in reply to: Demons Gate – Sellswords and Spellslingers Campaign #127740
Chapter 4 is now on the blog https://grahamsgaming.blogspot.com/2019/12/demons-gate-sellswords-campaign-chapter.html
The first wave of Germans were not helped by taking out one of their own boats with a torpedo before firing a shot!
When the second wave came on, they were in a better position to launch torpedoes, plus they were initially only opposed by one badly damaged Fairmile D. Plus, for their first turn the LCIs were blocking the LOS of the other two Fairmiles. As it was the damaged Fairmile almost sank one S-boat and took the front 20mm out on the second before it went under.
A mad trapper sounds like an idea for my next game, or else I might just throw a giant grizzly into the mix!
Colin came over today so that we finally managed to fight the third scenario. https://grahamsgaming.blogspot.com/2019/11/cruel-seas-final-game-against-japanese.html09/11/2019 at 18:30 in reply to: Demons Gate – Sellswords and Spellslingers Campaign #126239

A great read, thanks for sharing.18/10/2019 at 08:06 in reply to: Demons Gate – Sellswords and Spellslingers Campaign #124687
Scanning the square before them, Sintamo murmured “Watch out, there’s about 8 armed men hiding behind the stalls.”
“Ten, actually” whispered Eldarondo in reply.
Sintamo looks at him and raises an eyebrow.
“Are you sure they’re not just traders, setting up their stalls?” whispered Gunnar, “Like that woman over there.”
Looking at where he was pointing, they could see the figure of a townswoman move down the street.
“Mind you she’s walking a bit funny, is she drunk?”
“Not so much walking, as shambling.” The elf pointed out.
“Yes…” Sintamo agreed “…you mean sort of, mindlessly wanting to eat your brains, shambling?”
“Yep, that’s it!”
Our second game is up on the blog now! http://grahamsgaming.blogspot.com/2019/10/demons-gate-sellswords-campaign-chapter_17.html08/10/2019 at 08:08 in reply to: Demons Gate – Sellswords and Spellslingers Campaign #123998
Interesting, I’ve seldom found a game of S&S where the monsters didn’t move and the PC’s just walked it. In fact I can only think of one game where that happened out of the 30-40 games I’ve played. Luck of the draw, I guess. Usually I found the opposite, the PCs got swamped, particularly when playing with a starting level party.
I am very taken with S&S for two main reasons.
Firstly, this particular party play like an old-style D&D game. Very reminiscent of role-playing adventures in my youth, but with out all the manuals and charts.
Secondly, it is so adaptable, it is quite easy to create new monsters and to write scenarios for it. It is also easy to tweak to fit different backgrounds, for example I played a mini campaign set in Middle Earth and have produced a VSF version.
I can’t really compare to RotSD, because I don’t have a copy. I do play regular games of Frostgrave, so I like the mechanisms it uses.
Have a look at Iron Gate Scenery. I saw their stand at the Tabletop Gaming Live convention on Saturday and they had loads of nice items that would fit your requirements. Look under their Ancient and Pirate ranges.
Thanks, it was a lot of fun!15/09/2019 at 13:58 in reply to: Emperor of Ice – Sellswords and Spellslingers Campaign #122319
Thanks for the comments guys.
We are having a lot of fun with this bunch of misfits, so I am working on our next adventure now. Sellswords a great set of rules and, once you are familiar with them, it’s very simple to create new scenarios or adapt ideas from other rules. For example, I’m currently working through the Thaw of the Lich Lord with my regular Frostgrave group and I’m thinking how some of those scenarios would be easy to convert to Sellswords.
Is also quite an easy task to create new monsters for Sellswords, I’ve already put together about a dozen or so wild animals, giants and undead as they were required for our games.14/09/2019 at 09:53 in reply to: Emperor of Ice – Sellswords and Spellslingers Campaign #122192
