THE VILLAGE PEOPLE
We have had lots of requests for more terrain, and we want it too! So here we are with a box full of lovely terrain to expand your games.
This Terrain Pack builds on the small village you get in the core box, with a total of 52 extra terrain pieces! These include another large farmhouse and 3 new cottages to help fix the village housing crisis. On the outskirts you can see the 5 old ruins of the houses that were burned down five years ago in the English raid. Some say they’re haunted.
We have 12 unique, double-sided hex tiles including a collection of river tiles to add this important terrain feature to your games. And, because we now have rivers, we have bridges (1 stone and 2 wooden) to span them, and a water mill sitting beside it to grind the flour for the villagers’ daily baguettes. All great objectives to focus scenarios and battles around.
That all sounds like a good start, but we can do more! Let’s add some animals like sheep, bullocks, and horses, with the dogs to herd and guard them, and the walls to pen them in so they don’t wander off. More bushes can carry the berries for foraging, and 10 more trees will make the forests that hide all that tasty game for the villagers to poach.
Speaking of villagers, we can’t forget those. We’ve got a wealthy merchant, a fine princess, a young peasant lady, a blacksmith, and an apothecary to join in your scenarios (and eat all those baguettes).
On the outskirts we also included the pieces to make a small camp, with 8 tents around 3 campfires: a worthwhile objective for raiding or defending. These can work for any group of soldiers, as they all like to sleep out of the rain, whatever their allegiance.
So what can you do with all this stuff? There are three main ways to use it. Firstly, we’ve included 2 new scenarios that make use of all the items in the box.
Secondly, you can use it as a source of ideas for your own scenarios. We’ve included the rules for rivers and the water mill so you can include them in whatever tale you want to tell: defending a town, searching for the princess, rounding up the livestock, poisoning the water supply, and so on. There are a thousand stories lurking in here, just waiting for you to find them.
Finally, you can use all this terrain in your battle mode games. This open style of play allows players to choose any terrain for their battlefield, so more options and different terrain pieces just adds to the possibilities!
So what are you waiting for? Let’s hear your scenario ideas!
If you are interested in this add-on, simply click on the blue “manage your pledge” button near the top of the page. Then increase your total by the amount of any add-ons you wish to include in your pledge. You can change your pledge as many times as you want while the campaign is running.
During the campaign, Kickstarter doesn’t let you tell us what the money you pledge is actually for, so don’t worry about that now. Instead, after the Kickstarter is over we will send you a “pledge manager”. This allows you to tell us exactly how you want to allocate your pledge, which add-ons you would like, how many core boxes, and (most importantly) where we need to send it all!
The Voice in Her Head
Historical note: baguette is a modern term. In reality, while the rich might have eaten properly risen and finely made pain de bouche, our peasant friends in the village probably made do with barely-risen, rough loaves such as the dark bran bread called bolent.
