A friend of mine Alex has been after a game of 7TV for a while and I thought I would offer something slightly different with another of Crooked Dice's systems 7TH Voyage. This system is near identical to 7TV but is set in the stop motion film and tv era of Ray Harryhausen amongst others.
So I set up a Jason and the Argonauts game with the scenario of recovering the Golden Fleece. I mishmashed it abit as anyone who has seen the film will know the fleece is protected by the Hydra. Well I havnt got a Hydra painted yet so laid out some temple terrain which housed the fleece and pitted the Argonauts against King Aeetes and his skeletons (mishmashed see as thats a completely different scene in the film
Alex took the Argonauts with Jason, an Argonaut and some veterans whilst I took the Colchis crew of King Aeetes with his warriors and some skeleton warriors that could be summoned.
The two forces advance on each other
The Argonauts prepare to claim the Golden Fleece
Archers take the high ground
Colchis Warriors prepare to defend the ruins
Clash at the temple
The Argonauts gain the fleece whilst the Veterans attack the Colchis Warriors and wipe most of them out
King Aeetes finally summons his undead soldiers to attack the Argonauts, whilst a Veteran charges in and takes out the archers
Whilst the Skeletons are engaging the Veterans King Aeetes cast Pillar of Wrath on Jason
Pillar of Wrath causes Jason and an Argonaut to catch fire
More Skeletons are summond and bears down on Jason (still burning)
Jason survives being burnt and manages to take out the advancing Skeletons and the game ends. Totalling up the victory points the Argonauts win a minor victory being in possession of the Golden Fleece.
