Secondary missions

Viesti Kirjoittaja HeresyBrush » Ti 07.10.2014 22:38

Hi,

Some friends and I are playing a Mordheim campaign in Joensuu, and we are testing a "module": secondary missions.

You are very welcome to share your comments and ideas to improve the module! :)

These are the rules:
SECONDARY MISIONS

This additional module to play Mordheim games include two card decks with 72 cards each one: missions and rewards. Rewards cards are all different, although the texts can be repeated in different combinations. But mission cards are by duplicated, and therefore two players can fight for the same target.

How to use secondary mission cards?

Before the battle starts, each players draw two reward cards, and three secondary mission cards but chose only 2. That's you have two missions and two rewards cards in your hand. You can or cannot complete these secondary missions, it’s up to you.

The secondary missions should be kept in secret (that’s why we use cards). Thus the game is more interesting because we cannot exactly prevent the enemy taking his objectives. However, his actions can expose him and his objectives!.

The rewards are retrieved at the end of the game, once the battle has been resolved and you check if you have completed the missions. If you think you have completed a missions during the battle, you can say it and keep the card face up to remind that. But beware, some missions are only completed at the end of the game. Don’t reveal your mission too soon!.

If you complete both missions at the end of the game, you will receive both reward cards. If you complete only one mission, you will randomly pick one of the reward card.

Every reward cards show two different kind of reward, depending on the mission. The correspondent mission is indicated under the headline. Attack! rewards are oriented to warrior experience and influence on Mordheim environment. Meanwhile Tactical movement rewards are related with loot, economic and exploration factors.

You only can pick one reward from a reward card. That’s, if you have completed an Attack! and a Tactical movement missions, you cannot use the upper reward for one mission and the bottom one for the other mission from the same Reward card. You have to use two different reward cards to charge both missions cards.

The Reward card effects have to be resolved before next battle. If there is a bonus, you have immediately to use during next battle. You cannot accumulate them and use in other moment.

Note the cards are designed for multiplayer battles, although they can easily be understood in one-to-one battles.

Cool looking cards!

How have they worked for you? Do they bring more depth to game with hidden missions? Has they play style changed?

Cheers,

Hi,

Thanks for your comment!

We have being using these card during 20(?) games, and I think they nicely work. They don't modify or affect the main scenario goal because the rewards are not good enough, but you have more options to directly or indirectly get more crowns. In addition, some missions are fun or interesting because sometimes you have to do something unusual to get them (ex. charge from above!).

By the way, we released the new version time ago (including more cards for critics and initiative). You can freely download here:

I would say they spice up our games. Since we rather have single multiplayer match in each week than 1v1 face-offs. We found secondary objectives providing plenty of variances how people can approach to match. Sometimes it helped earlier badly beaten Warband get some extra without having to entirely risk for primary objective to get back into action but we've had some crazy matches like one where Dwarfs went nuts and went to melee to take whole pot: the Primary Objective and Secondary ones. :)
