Another little file featuring some incomplete retro-fitted scenarios. Not sure what's happened to the formatting. Can I do attachments to this list?

These scenarios have been written as board game versions of myHero Wars ? founding of Pavis? campaign. As such they miss outsome of the minor plots and characters in favour of a more broad-brush approach.

THE FACELESSSTATUE Lord Pavis travelled from Dragon Pass to Shadows Dance with hismotley assortment of allies. They found the Throne on which theFaceless Statue sat and brought the statue to life. Riding upon it?sshoulders Lord Pavis led his army into the Valley of Cradles where hefaced an army of animal nomads and giants opposed to his outlanderresettlement plans.

WELCOME TO THENEW SETTLEMENT: Many diverse peoples came to settle within Paragua?s Walls. Somemade their own way, other were guided by agents of Lord Pavis. Thehardships of the plains were a new challenge to some.

DEPLOYMENT: One player takes on the role of all those seeking to settlepeacefully in the new settlement. The other player takes on the roleof all other malignant forces, whether opposed to the actualsettlement or merely those who are merely trying to survivethemselves in the plains. Player 1; Lord Pavis welcomes new settlers. He needs farmers,warriors and magicians, nobles, philosophers and priests. Jrusteli Exiles - led by Jhostarl of Sog.

SPECIAL RULES: The Elmal clan/Ferris/Horse Herd do not really know where they aregoing. Unless in the river valley or stacked with any other unit theyonly know to move north (1) east (2,3), southeast (4,5), or south (6)The various settlers come from different backgrounds and are notnecessarily friendly. Indeed, there was active rivalry between thehorse people and the horse-friendly Elmali. Only through Lord Paviscould good relations be ensured - that was his personal magic. Factional Rivalry: When two factions meet for the first time they may not reactfavourably. In the alliance phase if any units are within a move ofeach other they may use the emissary table to determine if they arefriendly or not. If the emissary would normally be eliminated thenthey are hostile and the player must hand over control of one side orthe other to the hostile player. If the alliance is refused then theycontinue to be rivals, if the alliance is granted then they act asnormal counters on the same side. Lord Pavis begins the game friendly with each faction, and if heis present during any alliance it will be successful. The ?Hostile plains? player gains one hostile counter perturn, at random from the counters available.

VICTORY CONDITIONS: Lord Pavis gains two points for each valid settler that arrivessafely at the Real City. ElmalclanElmaliHorse HerdJrustelisettlers The hostile forces of Prax gain one point if Flintnail leaves thecity, for his building schedule is interrupted. They gain one pointfor every faction that becomes hostile, or that they eliminatecompletely (Elmali, Jrusteli, Riverfolk, Horse people, Flintnail).

FIRE SEASON: Oakfed opposed the new settlement but a hastily assembled allianceof magicians and warriors fought with his wildfires. Many fled, andsought only to save themselves and their herds and kin. A noble fewsought to defend the new settlement, risking their lives to fight thefire demons.

SPECIAL RULES: The main part of the game which is the assembly of forces by theagents of Lord Pavis against the fear and panic generated by theferocious wildfire approaching from the south. Each player receives anumber of diplomacy points (as per Dragon Pass) which represent theefforts of the Wildfire to terrorize the population against theagents of Lord Pavis?s attempts to coordinate a defence. Asuccessful alliance by the Wildfire does not mean that thatindependent has joined forces with Oakfed but rather that they havefled, holed themselves up underground, gone upriver, or otherwiseleft everyone else to fend for themselves.
