    • Warcradle Studios Diary #12
      For centuries the Order of the Allshard has waged their Crusade against the Hex at the fringes of human civilisation. Only in recent years has the Order’s technology and influence grown to the point that they can now look to root out the Hex’s malign influence in Great Powers of the Dystopian Age.

    • UK Gunslinger Masters 2019: The Round Up
      On Saturday 19th October, 14 players from across the country congregated in Southampton with the sole aim of fighting for the UK Gunslinger Masters, it had all the makings of an exciting and enjoyable tournament. Now is probably a good time to mention that this is only the second year that the event has run, however, it had the attributes of a far more well-established affair, one that I hope will grow and continue to run for many years to come.

    • What did everyone think of the BBC War of the Worlds adaptation?  Anyone craving some more Invaders to play out some Thunderchild action?
    • For everyone else reading in this thread, this rules case has been cleared up by Stuart on FB within the Dark Council group as follows:  "Portal Moves do not trigger backstabs as the models themselves do not actually move, they are removed and replaced on the table. I'll FAQ it to clarify. LWX will make this clearer too."
    • So the glossary of terms states that the act of placing or replacing a model is not considered movement and as such dont provoke backstab reactions. Does this mean that actions such as get in and portal move don't provoke them? Since these remove the model and place it. Even though they are move actions?
    • Hmm, really? It's not bad to get money for delivering later without a date.   I ordered DW-models in september, some where marked as "items in stock" others as "Restock Expected: Available To Order". I thougt not bad, maybe I have to wait but that is not the problem. 10 days later I got a mail, that Wayland is sorry, but not able to deliver all models. But I have to do nothing, they will send me another information the next week. That second information never arrived. Therefore I opened a ticket october the 25th and asked about the models. I got the return, that they are not able to deliver all models. Because of this I asked for part delivery and two weeks later I got the first 5 models. I thanked for this and asked for information about the rest. First I got no information, therefor I reopned (well it was not really cloesed) the ticket and started the discussion here. The warcradle-guys here are again not able to help. Call the helpdesk.. I'm still in touch with them. They can't give me any date when they are able to deliver the models but offered me a refund. I don't want the money back, I like to get the models. They are a present for my boys. Again, in my opinion it's a very bad behavior to mark 100-200 models of DW as "Restock Expected: Available To Order" but can't even give an information about the date, when they are able to deliver.  Poor, only poor... And not a good sign for 3.0. But this is only my single opinion and maybe not representative for the rest of the customer.
    • Oh it certainly will be difficult to rebuild the community.  My initial goal is to have a spot where people can go to check out the game.  Then once the game has launched I can get to running demos and actually pulling in existing/new players.  At this point Warcradle doesn't have the name pull that other manufacturer's have, and I am looking to change that in my area.
    • I believe that one of the most important aspects to any faction in a game, is that which that gives you something you can identify with and makes you decide that above all the other factions, this particular one is for you. In a game like Mythos we've already seen the very human-looking Priory and the slightly fishy Hidden Ones, but how do you empathise with something wholly inhuman? Let's take a look… Mythos - coming to a tabletop near you in 2020! The story of the Custos Crypta who roam the world of Mythos in the 1920’s begins in the year 700 BCE at the height of the Kushite Empire. The authority of the Pharaoh of that era, Neferkare Shabaka, was considered absolute. Shabaka was said to be blessed by an ancient Egyptian God known as Khepera. It was in Khepera’s name that Shabaka ruled from Nubia to the Nile Delta. For this service, the Kushite Empire was gifted the service of the Custos Crypta, a sentient insectoid species that acted as both guardian and custodian of Shabaka and his people. But time and the treachery of humankind are the only constants in this world and when Shabaka was murdered by his nephew Taharqa, the Custos Crypta were entombed alongside him in the pyramid at el-Kurru, there to remain for the rest of eternity. At least that was the plan…   The Crypt Guardian was the last of its kind to survive the overthrow of Shabaka. Though thought dead by the primitive priests at the time, the Guardian had instead entered into a state of cryptobiosis and its desiccated body was interred alongside the slain Pharaoh. When the pyramid at el-Kurru was excavated by George Reisner and his team in 1919, the Guardian was taken as a curio back to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. It was late one night that a researcher-made the mistake of spilling a glass of water onto the Guardian’s inert form. Though initially, it appeared no harm was done, by the following morning, the Guardian had vanished, revived and now enacting the will of Khepera once more.   Crypt Grubs are the larval form of the Custos Crypta and the most numerous of the creatures to be encountered. Usually tasked with all manner of menial tasks, when fed a specific blend of proteins and secretions they rapidly evolve into their required final form.   Evolved for long-distance infiltration and observation, the Crypt Sham has a passing resemblance to a human silhouette when at rest. When in low light or illuminated by solitary street lamps, a Crypt Sham can stand in such public spaces and observe a target for hours without arousing suspicion.   The Custos Crypta extends its influence through the human cattle by way of mentally compelled servants. Victoria Taylor and Sara Heriot are former research students from the Museum of Fine Arts that were brought under the control of the Crypt Guardian on its reawakening. Though utterly dedicated to the whims of Khepera, regrettably any initiative or higher reasoning is stripped away by the process which limits the Custos Crypta’s use of such enslaved pawns.   As you can see, by tying what would otherwise be personality-less insects to a wider narrative, drawing in mortal servants and expanding on their formidable biology, the Custos Cryptos are as exciting and compelling a faction as any other. Some might even argue that they are more interesting than others! See them in action yourself when the tabletop skirmish horror of Mythos arrives at your friendly local gaming store early next year.   Until next time. Stuart View the full article
