A handful of my gaming buddies and I got together at Knavecon recently. Amongst other things, our Dragons Rampaged.
My Shonen Knives defended the shores of Kuripu Jima against dwarfs, halflings and the forces of c-c-c-chaos, while becoming allies of convenience with slann (and some conquistadors) and desert orcs.
Orcs collide with conquistadors aligned with the amphibious Bizazza, in incongruous surroundings.
Roused from their unquiet and dishonourable slumber, the Yurei Raida charge to the defence of their homeland.
Tragically backlit like all of the best villains, even in a crappy photo Curis Chaos forces look the biz.
Dragon Rampant remains lots of fun and Im dying to play some more of it. Daniel Mersey (the author of Dragon Rampant, Lion Rampant, The Men Who Would Be Kings and some other games that I have yet to try) has become a big selling point for me.
Add in the small, succinct and inexpensive Osprey Games rulebooks and its a winning formula.
Although we played other games over the weekend, its samurai and their ilk that I have been inspired to get painting next. I would like to reinforce the Shonen Knives and having given Test of Honour a fair bit of consideration, I have to decided to take the plunge with that, along with PB2, so more samurai is a bit of a no-brainer.
But before all that, dinosaurs next time.
