Castlevania Gangtag for donations! See below for details!





Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to form a team of Goons to fight me 4 vs 1 in Fury of Dracula on Halloween.
I will take on the titular role of Dracula, and proceed to murder the poo poo out of all of you.
You will take on the roles of The Hunters, and attempt to thwart my reign of terror.

HOWEVER

If your team manages to beat me I will be probated for 1 month

Think you can form a squad and take me down?



- Create a team of 4 players (I will not help you form the squad!)
- A copy of Tabletop Simulator (ShallNoiseUpon has graciously donated 2 copies if you need one)
- This Fury of Dracula workshop module
- Discord and a microphone!


ShallNoiseUpon has very graciously offered to stream the match live via Twitch, as I am unable to do so due to the fact all information in this game must be hidden from every other player.
I am also currently trying to arrange ~Guest Commentators~ to help people better follow the action, but they are currently in the TBA stage!

That said if that doesn't pan out and you are interested in lending your time commentating, and are both knowledgeable about Fury of Dracula and, please feel free to drop me a PM.



Due to ~time zone nonsense~ It will be in the morning for me, rather than Halloween, as this time generally works out 'best' globally. Grats to all Yanks who get to watch this on actual Halloween though
- 10 or 11am AEST (Australian Eastern Standard) November 1st
- 8 or 9pm EDT
- 5 or 6pm PDT
- 1 or 2am BST
(I will confirm exact starting time once we have a team locked in)

Most games of Fury of Dracula take 2-3+ hours to play, please set aside time for this if you decide to put together a team!



*Gangtag design TBA. I will make it cool*

If you would like to 'bet' on the match, you will be rewarded with a gangtag on the provision that you make a charitable donation of at least $5

1.) Make a donation to the BLM movement, or your countries Red Cross, or another worthy charity.
2.) Post a pic of your donation ITT, alongside who you would like to win. (Either "Infinitum" or "Hunters")
3.) If you voted for the winner, you will receive either the new gangtag or a tag of your choice.
4.) If you voted for the losing team?.. Well..

Here is the first of a 2 part episode of Fury of Dracula being played, and what inspired me to pick it up in the first place
I strongly recommend you watch the first episode at the very least to get an understanding of the basics.

tl;dr

- Form a team of 4 Goons, and then send me a PM once you've assembled a crew. We will work out final details like discord, starting time, etc.
I will not help you form the team.

- If no team is put forth in time, I will assume you are all cowards and claim SUPREME VICTORY
Dracula will hence forth rule forever, and your souls are forfiet this coming hallows eve.

Man, Fury of Dracula is such a good game.

I'm confident that good will triumph, even though that means a good poster getting probated for a god drat month. You flew too close to the sun, Infinitum, which is a dumb thing to do when you're a vampire. Your wings won't even have a chance to melt!

I figure since I'm going to be a vampire hunter it'd be a bit disingenuous to vote for Dracula. So! This is going towards Hunters Against Dracula.

Good news, two mystery vampire hunters have been training. They want their identities a secret? Anyway. They lost on day 22 because they guessed the wrong one of two cities I was in.



Pictured: The board (Dracula was not visible). They knew last turn I had been in Cologne, so I had either moved to Strasbourg, Brussels, Frankfurt, or stayed in Cologne. Lord Goldaming in Yellow acts first, and as no one else could reach Strasbourg, he went there. This left Dr John (green) to travel three spaces by rail... and after several turns of getting tickets, he only had a 1/1 train ticket to try to reach me.

Victory by timeout, 14 influence, with one health remaining on Dracula. I had spent six days at sea. Also apparently there's a card that instantly reveals where at sea you are? Boo that card, five damage worth of juking totally ruined.

They came real close to victory, but it was against a sub-tier vampire who kept using wolf form to go one space. (They never see it coming.) I ain't betting a month of posts on my Dracula skills.

If we wager on Dracula and Dracula goes 2-1, does that count as a win or a loss?

Been talking to the challengers, and I'll have them announce themselves in thread whenever they're ready.

As you can see above they got a practice game in today, and they're going to need all the help they can get.

Do you mean Dracula fights 2 hunters at the same time?
Outcome doesn't matter, but Dracula would likely avoid that fight as one of the hunters always has their action resolve against him.

In terms of this challenge we are going to stick to the original win conditions:
- Dracula wins if the influence tracker reaches 13
- Dracula loses if he is reduced to 0 health points

I mean if you play three games, and Dracula wins two out of the three. I am confident in our undead lord but sometimes Quincy Morris gets lucky

Oh I see what you meant. 3 different teams. I mean.. I'd consider it if there was enough interest in an Iron Dracula Challenge. It would have to be over separate weekends, and I'd reduce the toxx probe time for subsequent wager

Maybe if we set a reasonable donation goal for charity?

Dracula will win because he'll pull some bullshit from the Godplane that he shouldn't by any rights be able to.

So, I feel I should really get a practice game in - especially as I haven't had any luck getting a copy of the game to play with in person, over the last week or so. I'm in Adelaide, but are any of the other gang (or non-gang) players free tomorrow night, by any chance? As I said, I'm in Adelaide (I think most of you are on the east coast of Aus, but could be wrong) so I'll probably be free from 5:30-6:00pm onwards, our time.
