Warhammer World, 11th August
Tales of old tell of The Guardian - a formidable warrior who felled the ancient beast Shadowblight.
Inquisitorial Scholars agree that the tale is a metaphor manufactured when the Inquisition was but young, a lie to hide the truth from the weak minded - Shadowblight was a warp storm of gargantuan magnitude, destined to cut off the sector from the light of the Astronomican.
The Inquisition's Navigators have read the tides of the Warp, the Emperor's Tarot shows dark omens and the Great Rift stains the sky; such darkness is coming again.
To protect the sector, the Inquisition must un-weave their own mystery, and rediscover the truth of the Guardian.
A one-day narrative Inquisitor event, which will be using some of the games on the day to playtest the latest version of the Inquisitor Revised Edition rules.
The event is planned to be 28mm scale based on responses from players so far, but can be opened to 54mm players as well if enough people express interest.
The Player Pack is here.
An updated version of the IRE rules will be coming before the event.
Again, sorry for dumping this in the wrong place, but the other INQ28 boards seem to be a bit of an oubliette.
Although I am already planning the event in London, I'd like to run the next playtest day for my Inquisitor Revised Edition project sometime this year.
This will still be a normal open narrative day with an underlying story to back it up (it'll just be that any games I GM will be using the Revised Edition rules*), and so I'm proposing that it helps fill in the currently pretty empty schedule of open Inquisitor events at Warhammer World this year. (I'd normally elect to hold the playtest closer to me, but it wouldn't be very considerate for me to run all my events this year down south when there's none in Nottingham).
*And IRE deliberately tries to keep the feel of original Inquisitor, with a very high degree of back compatibility, so it's not like you're going to be playing something grossly different.
At the moment, I have a few potentially interested responses from 28mm scale players (but so far very few from 54mm players), so I'm also copying this over here to see if anyone else is available/interested.
I spent today trying to phone WHW about dates, but I didn't manage to get any more than an answer-phone. I'm planning on putting this before the London event I'm planning (as I'm expecting it'll be a smaller event with less prep work - it also means that if anyone else wants to run anything in the tail end of the year, there's no conflict), so I'm looking at around the end of July/start of August. If people can pre-emptively rule out any of the following dates:
... then I'll know to avoid them if possible when I get through on the phone.
(My personal favourite would be 11th August, as this avoids me having to miss or work around other things, but I can do the others if absolutely necessary).
If possible, I'll be trying to get Mining Facility 42 as one of the tables, as I've been looking longingly at that board for Inquisitor since it was the Goblin Town board, but I haven't yet got to use it...
