Bells of War: A Let Thrones Beware Playtest

Introduction
Given the paucity of Man's presence in the Deep Wood, it was only natural that cataclysm which was his undoing sent the peoples of Ceyenus hurrying for shelter under its foreboding canopy. Though it was the Fey who Man first ripped from forests centuries ago, the flood of refugees encompassed all those who were close enough to reach the massive trunks of the Wood before the lands of Man were completely consumed by the conflagration that brought low his kingdom. Insectoid, Formian, Ipotane, and Fey, all released from the domineering hand of Man, found themselves alone in an isolated and primeval land. While freed, their civilizations and cultures had been lain to waste, and all found themselves facing the daunting prospect of forging a new destiny in a strange and unfamiliar place.

Spirits buoyed by their freedom, the refugees set about claiming the Deep Wood. Sprawling settlements were established, open to all those that desired to make a home for themselves. It was not an easy life; food, tools, and comfort were in short supply, but compared to the atrocities that came before, it was good living. Sadly, hope of a tranquil existence was short-lived. While there was little internecine violence between the refugees, they soon discovered that Man had avoided the Wood with good reason. The Deep Wood, remote and isolated, had never been cultivated by the Fey, and in their absence, darker, more insidious forces had taken hold. The presence which lurked behind the trees fed off the Cataclysm, and its hunger was to be insatiable.

Absent the threat of Man, the refugees had given scant thought to protection, and the communities which they had founded were largely indefensible. When the Deep Wood first was inundated by fog, they thought little of it, even when the concealing vapour lingered, refusing to dissipate for weeks at a time. Wild animals were blamed for the first disappearances, as was getting lost in the mist, but as the vanishings increased in both number and frequency, it became clear that something more insidious was at work.

The first walls were erected shortly after the fifteenth year, a too-late response to the realization of the true threat. In what is known as the First Reaping, Watcher’s Redoubt, a 300-person farming community saw its population cut by a third in a single night. Thatched roofs staved in and doors shattered, the town saw its populace reduced by a third in a single night of carnage and bloodshed. It was only then that the true nature of the Deep Wood was realized. With haste, the survivors constructed rudimentary defences; wooden palisades, shallow trenches, and rickety towers went up across the hamlets and villages of the Deep Wood.

In time, a connection was made between the attacks and the thick, rolling fog that blanketed the forest; when the fog receded, so too did the savage slaughter of anyone who dared venture into the trees abate. When the fog poured back from between the trees, it meant almost certain doom for anyone unlucky enough to remain outside the relative safety of the refuge villages. The times without fog, the longest of which occurred like clockwork at the end of each season, came to be known as the Passage. During these respites, merchants and peddlers took to plying their trade between the refuge villages, performing a vital service at tremendous personal risk. As years churned by, trade between the villages increased, and the Passage gradually took on shades of ritual. The scourge of bandits has grown in recent years, and merchants have begun to band together in caravans for safety.

Chapter One: Comin' to a fork in the road, which way to go?


It has been three and a half days since your caravan departed from the Gate of Thorns at the behest of the Baronet. Three and a half long, stressful days. The reason for the caravan's departure before the Passage is known only to Xcvrrvy, captain of the guard. Rumour and speculation abounds; guards and peddlers alike whisper that the Baronet has entrusted Xcvrrvy with a secret treasure, but no-one can guess at why it is being brought to the small village of Chael Hollow.

Twilight has fallen and with it, the beginning of the Passage. Moods amongst your fellows have lightened considerably, especially as only five of their number vanished during the journey. The caravan has stopped for the evening, and camp has slowly been established. The two wagons have been parked at an angle, providing a rickety line of defence that shields the tents pitched between them. A crescent of torches casts a dim light to the treeline, giving those who nervously watch the shadows some degree of comfort. Xcvrrvy has taken four soldiers out on patrol. With her gone, the camp has relaxed.

You lucky few have been exempted from the night's guard rotation, and are free to spend the evening as you please.

Fire up a post with your character sheet and a brief introduction. When the last of you has posted, it's time for bed, and we'll get this show on the road.

I released my finger from the trigger, and then it was over...


Autumn Somerset

Sitting stone-faced at the edge of the encampment, away from the rest of the group, Autumn watched the light dance off of the torches.
She had seen some (proverbial) poo poo; while her hands whittled down a thin dowel with a sharp knife, her mind was elsewhere -- but her weapons were always close by. Autumn favored her bow, but was also skilled with lighter blades.

A prickly sort, she was nonetheless dependable when it came to defending a caravan. What started as a one-off gig had become a vocation; she had gained some wealth (more than she had known before) and learned the merchant trade in the process, but she never thought of herself as a "salesman," per se. People had need of goods, business is business; for her it was more a means to an end, rather than a "calling" or anything of the sort.

What is there to eat? The thought crept into her head, though she knew it was unlikely she could eat, anyway...

Name: Hearth Stonewall


As night begins to settle, and others take up watch, Hearth finds a place not far from the fire to settle his feet into the earth. His feet reach deep and begin to take in nutrients. While he does so he looks over the others nearby, and dwells on what has led him here. Only five were lost so far on this journey. Only five? Even a single loss was too many. But these woods are dangerous. It is why he is here.

Like many of his kind Hearth has a large family. Many children, and many more grandchildren. Keeping Chael Hollow safe was enough for some time. But there is a limit to how safe they can be with those actions. Going into the woods, and making them safer would go much further into ensuring their safety. And so this caravan is the perfect opportunity to make the woods a bit safer.

Cybernetic Crumb

Name: Endral Goldshadow


Endral sits near the warming fire, casting the occasional glance at his stony companion. He's surrounded by the sounds and activity of a camp being made, but knows that none consider him part. Xcvrrvy looked calm enough when she led her patrol out, but there was a nervousness to her gait that gave Endral pause. Perhaps he should have offered her a blessing before she left.

How many caravans, how many frightened patrollers, how many desperate merchants have been lost on this road? Embarking before the Passage was madness, but the plans of royalty so often are. With luck, Endral would not encounter another of his kind, and be spared the sickening twist in his gut that such a meeting always caused.

The evening passes without event, and gradually the camp quiets for the night. You settle in, slowly drifting off to sleep. Unexpectedly, it is a deep and restful.

You dream. You dream of the great festival that marks the coming of the Summer Passage in the Gate of Thorns. Giant bonfires, pagentry, and the beautiful music of traveling bards, spinning such stories. You dream of the happy chatter of frolicking children, the hustle and bustle of the great open-air markets, the elated chatter of people as they trade with the peddlers before the caravans depart with the dawn. You dream of the Baronet come down from his spire, a crazed rictus grin splayed across his lips.

You dream of screams.

You wake.

You wake to the boot of Xcvrrvy catching you in the stomach.

"Get up, wake up!" Her frenetic voices booms in your head, blasting you from your slumber. All around you, the forest is aflame. The camp is in chaos, and the sound of a struggle most fierce echoes from the tree-line.

"You three. Bandits upon us. Many of us slain." Pointing to a huddle of cowering peddlers, she commands, "Get these to Chael Hollow." There is no room, nor time, for debate. Xcvrrvy turns from you, her sword glinting in the firelight, and charges back into the fray. Her sacrifice buys you precious moments.

You gather your possessions and the three of you plunge into the trees, pushing the four peddlers to move quickly, desperately seeking to escape the slaughter.


We begin the playtest with a group non-combat challenge. You must navigate safely to Chael Hollow, you must keep the peddlers motivated and with you, and you must keep ahead of the bandits, who will surely pursue you once they have finished with your camp.

As you are reacting to a situation rather than proactively taking action, the GM takes the first move. All three are Easy challenges, which means that you have two rounds in which to reduce the challenge from 1 health to 0.

  • Navigate the forest (Knowledge). Health: 1. Duration: 2.
  • Motivate the peddlers (Social). Health: 1. Duration: 2.
  • Keep ahead of the bandits (Physical). Health: 1. Duration: 2.

The Challenge Type (knowledge, social, physical) stipulates which attributes you may use in this challenge (knowledge - wit, social - presence, physical - strength/fortitude/response). You may decide amongst yourselves who attemps to overcome each obstacle, or you can just claim one as you come online and see this message.

When you're ready, find me on Discord and we'll play through a round, and then you can post the results here.

Wasting no time, Autumn took to the driver's seat of one of the wagons; she had driven one for a while after her years of hermitage, and was occasionally required to take the reins in emergency situations along the convoy routs.

Hearth keeps an eye out for trees, rocks, and any obstacles the group may come across in their flight. Smacking tree branches out of the way, pushing off against trees and boulders to keep the cart from slamming into anything that could slow, or worse yet stop, their rushing progress. When truly impassable obstacles appear he reaches over and slams the ground causing the topography to briefly rearrange itself, just long enough to pass.

Challenge Breakdown:

Round One:

In the first round, the PCs are reacting to a situation, meaning that they respond to GM-placed Obstacles.

In the first round, Autumn tackled the Knowledge Obstacle that loomed large with a total Force Score of 13 (2d6+2).

She attempted to counter with a Always Have a Contingency, a Skill Counter power, but even with an assist from Endral, only managed a total Force Score of 8 (2d6+3)

Endral took on the Presence Obstacle, but opted to spend the first round helping Autumn.

Hearth confronted the Physical Obstacle, which opened the engagement with a hefty Force Score of 11 (2d6+2). He countered with the Tenacious versatile power, racking up a meaty Force Score of 13 (2d6+3), a higher score than any of the follow-up wrinkles could match.

== Round summary ==
Knowledge Challenge - Full Health
Presence Challenge - Full Health - skipped
Presence Challenge - 0 Health - Challenge Defeated

Round Two:

In the second round, the roles are reversed - the PCs open with Skill Attack powers, and the GM responds.

Autumn begins with Trading Fortune, and musters a Force Score of 4 (2d6+1). This is sadly bested by a Force Score of 6 (2d6+1) on the GM's side, and she does not have a Skill Interrupt that would pull her score above that 8.

Endral, using her turn to resolve her own challenge this time, makes use of her When A Plan Comes Together Skill Attack, managing a solid 12 (2d6+4). The challenge can muster a measly Force Score of 8 (2d6+3), and Endral Triumphs.

== Round summary ==
Knowledge Challenge - Full Health
Presence Challenge - 0 Health - Challenge Defeated
Presence Challenge - 0 Health - Challenge Defeated

You have successfully completed the group challenge, albeit at a cost. Autumn suffers one point of Reserve damage, and only three of the four peddlers survive the journey.
Successfully overcoming two of three challenges means a partial victory for our heroes, and they press on.

The next scenario will be posted tomorrow, as I'm battling a wicked cold.

You best protect ya neck


The peddlers are eager to escape, and under Endral's exhortions, quickly board the wagon. They hunker down, willing the flimsy wooden siding of the cargo box to protect them from the bandits that press over closer. As the last of them boards, Autumn cracks a whip, and the wagon jolts forward, eliciting shouts from the brigands as they notice. Several rush to stop you, but Xcvrrvy appears from within the melee, interposing herself to buy you the valuable seconds you need to make good on your escape.

Your flight is a punishing one. The wagon careens through the forest as the horses drive forward, undergrowth crackling under hooves and heavy wheels. Several times you worry that you will be overtaken, but each time, Hearth's skillful manipulation of the terrain buys just enough time to elude pursuit. The only true setback occurs when the wagon rushes too quickly under a low-hanging tree. A branch crashes against the wagon box, knocking one of the peddlers over the side and slightly injuring Autumn.

At last, the horses tire and the wagon slows. Your pursuers have been eluded.

Ahead, between you and Chael Hollow in the distance, you can see the smouldering remains of a campfire. Instructing the peddlers to stay with the wagon, you creep forward to investigate.

Too late, you realize that you have stumbled across the a patrol of brigands.




You have entered combat with a bandit patrol. Neither party is surprised.

The three of you are alone; you may place yourselves in the box bounded by spaces A5:C12.

Map Features*:

Terrain:
The rock formations provide cover and block line of site to those behind them

Hazards:
The bushes (e.g. squares such as H1) are razorgrass. This is difficult terrain which halves movement speed. You may elect to move at full speed, but will suffer one damage for your troubles.

Upon seeing your group, a large Brigand Sargent, obviously in charge of the group, takes off with a shout, rushing away from you. His cry alerts two burly ruffians, who lope toward you, weapons drawn and sneers plastered across their faces. It's obvious that they don't hold the three of you in high esteem, thinking you easy marks.

Slap Me and Kiss Me's Guide to the Denizens of the Deep Wood: The Brigand

Brigand
Few in the Deep Wood are more reviled than Brigands. Their predatory raids upon travelers hurrying between refuge villages during the Passage mean that only those rich enough to hire protection are assured of a safe journey.
Brigand activity disrupts trade, depriving the denizens of the Deep Wood of badly needed tools and medicines, inflicting an artificial scarcity upon already deprived peoples. Though there are many bands active within the Deep Wood, they are generally unaffiliated, and fierce fighting is the typical outcome when two groups encounter each other on the gloomy paths.

Habitat
At the time of the Passage, Brigands depart from their unassuming lives in the refuge villages and make their way into the Deep Wood. There, far from the homes where they would be recognized, they reunite with their vicious comrades-in-arms and wage a terrible war upon the travelers who brave the forest. As the Passage draws to a close, Brigand groups dissolve, members heading home to enjoy ill-gotten gains and sell the spoils at exorbitant prices.

Tactic (All Brigands): Strike and Fade

Strategy (When Brigand is the most numerous adversary type): Encirclement

Autumn Somerset

Scampering quickly out from behind the cover of the rocky corner, Autumn instead took cover beside the rocky humanoid from their party.
Loosing an arrow at one of the dubious-looking fellows blocking the path, the missile sent him reeling and staggering across the path.

Endral Goldshadow

Endral startles at the sight of the brigands, but grits her teeth and meets the advancing assailant. Her blow is turned aside by the marauder's Brutal Slash. Her quick interrupt lands its own sting, while the marauder's weapon glances off her shield.

Move to F9

By My Example at Marauder (B), Force + 5 = 15 (succeeds) for 1 damage. Hearth gets Advantage on next turn.
Marauder (B) counters with Brutal Slash, Force + 6 = 16 (succeeds). By My Example is negated.
Endral interrupt with BInterrupt 1, Force + P + 2 = 16 (ties). Marauder (B) takes 1 damage. Endral takes 1 - resist(1) = no damage, reducing resist by one. Hearth gains Edge.

Shrieking cries echo through the rocky path as the two Brigand Hatchets make their move. One charges directly toward Endral, blade at the ready, while the other charges through the rocks, emerging from the south.

Hatchet (B) attacks with Endral with a Tentative Strike, Force + 0 = 10 (succeeds).
Endral counters with Drive Them Before Us, Force + P + 3 = 17 (succeeds). Hatchet (B) takes 1 damage and dies pathetically. Endral grants Knockback 1 to one ally's next engagement.

From back by the campfire, a swift figure emerges, rushing toward you. The Knife stops short and hurls a wicked looking blade towards Autumn. The Hurtling Blade, Force + 3 = 13.
Nimbly dodging the hurled blade, Autumn lunges in with her rapier drawn. Using a basic combat maneuver, Force Score: 12 + 4 + 0 = 16. (Succeeds)

Because Autumn was being attacked at range and countered with a melee power, she inflicts no damage

A New Round Begins

It's time for beginning of round housekeeping!

Each player now rolls for a new Force Score, replacing their roll from last round.

2d6: 4 [2d6=1, 3]
2d6: 4 [2d6=1, 3]
2d6: 12 [2d6=6, 6]

Once that's done, we have to handle power management.

At the start of this combat round, all of you (but Hearth) find yourselves with a bunch of exhausted powers. These used powers can't be used until they're refreshed.

At the beginning of a round, you randomly refresh one used power.

PLUS, any exhausted power with the renew keyword is automatically restored (that's the Basic Combat Maneuver).

To manage this effectively, when you post your new Force Score, also include the die roll for refreshing an exhausted power.


Autumn
1. Jarring Hook
-. Basic Combat Maneuver (autorefresh)
-----------------------
Jarring Hook refreshes at it is the only exhausted power


Endral
1. By My Advantage
2. BInteruppt 1
3. Drive Them Before Us

Use a d3 to determine which power is refreshed

Counter with Barrier of Steel F=5, S+3 total of 8 should beat the 6 the Hatchet has. For 2W damage?

Hatchet (A) attacks with Hearth with a Tentative Strike, Force + 0 = 6.
Hearth counters with Barrier of Steel, having a Force Score of 5 + 3 = 8.

The Hatchet is incapable of defeating this counterattack, and takes 2 damage. He crumples to the forest floor, bleeding heavily.

Hearth dusts his fists off after the last attack then goes about giving one of the nearby marauders a right cudgeling.

Attack with A Right Cudgeling against Marauder B F=5, Any(3)+1 total of 9, 10 with flanking should beat the 4 the Marauder has, unless they have a super powerful move. For 1W damage. And the target is stunned until the end of its next turn.

When it Counters I use Knight BInterrupt 2, which is S+2 and thus a grand total of 11, enough to break the tie. This one does 2W. Only 8 on the Force of the Effect so I assume it doesn't knock the Marauder prone.

The Knife, brandishes a brace on cruel-looking blades. She flings them toward Autumn, attacking with Hurtling Blade, Force + 3 = 15.
Autumn counters with Tcounter1, having a Force Score of 8 + 4 + 3 = 15.

As this is a tie, both combatants inflict damage and apply effects - Autumn's power allows her to make a free Basic Combat Maneuver, which she employs to attack Marauder A with a Force Score of 8 + 4 + 0 = 12.

The Marauder is unable muster a counter, to a score this high and suffers 1 point of damage.
Marauder A dies!

The Knife scowls at your success, withdrawing a canister from under the folds of her cloak. She lobs it toward Autumn, attacking with Burning Canister. Force Score 12 + 3 = 15.
Autumn doesn't counter, and suffers 1 damage.

Posting Endral's turn for expediency

Endral unleashes a furious retaliation against the Sargent, employing By My Example. Force Score 9 + 4 + 1 = 14.
The Sargent, having exhausted applicable powers, is unable to respond, and suffers 1 damage.

Endral, using the power's effect, grants Advantage to Hearth on the beginning of the next turn.

Capitalizing on the opening, Endral draws on Echtroi ancestry, summoning a cloud of shadow centred on space I3.

Endral attacks again, this time using Basic Combat Maneuver. Force Score 9 + 4 = 13.
The Sargent suffers an additional point of damage, and is wrenched from his position by a swarm of shadow, reappearing in space I3.

As flanking is no longer possible, Marauder B loses his Edge against Endral.

Flanking so that helps slightly.
Use A Right Cudgeling for F=6, S=3, +1 and a total of 10.
Then after taking a counter use a second attack.
Use Armoured Challenge F=6, S=3, +1 and a total of 10. For 2W damage.
