So tonight I made a giant leap in my geeking, and whether forward or backward remains to be seen. In the interest of learning the newly-acquired Song of Blades and Heroes, I set up a solo game and tried to learn as I played. I have a fairly limited collection of painted fantasy models, but I tried to make due with what was at hand, and in fact, I managed to scrounge two almost-300-point forces.
Curse of the Vampire Queen:
Gro’ghall, chieftan of the dark dwarves of Delving Rock, leads a small scouting party across the plains in search of the abandoned tower of Thrad’mo, his honoured ancestor.
…and a cackle resound on the evening air. “Come hither, chieftain of the dark children. Your doom awaits within, if you have the strength to come and receive it.” And with another crackle of smoke, Jikatta and her minions vanished, leaving Gro’ghall and his henchmen confused in the eery mist.
So there was the first game of SBH, and the first solo game of my geeking career. I quite enjoyed the game. It’s a great way to learn a game, and it worked surprisingly well as a solo game. There were a few questions that will need answering, but overall, I think the system is very entertaining and unpredictable. It actually took me back to the classic role-playing of my youth.
