The Arrière-ban is Proclaimed!

We just can’t wait to kick off Lions & Leopards and in just over two weeks at The Lakeland Role Playing Guid’s  August 12th game night we go to war!!! We will be presenting an exclusive preview which will introduce the setting through the story’s Prologue. Each game in the series is linked and the Prologue is no different. The game’s result will have an impact on the scenarios that will be played out at Hurricon 2016, so determining the fate of Loudun begins in just over two weeks!!

Ready to head the call to war? You can sign up through the LRPG forums or via the Facebook Page Event.

Scenario Description:The siege of Loudun is under way. Lord Huntington has ordered that the countryside be aggressively foraged to give his forces the supplies they will need in the weeks to come. Paramount among the list of needed resources are geese, which the fletchers have indicated will be needed to keep the longbows supplied in the event of an assault. Meanwhile Lord Dufour, viscount of Loudun, has called for aide from his countrymen. The promise that the one who can break the grip of the English horde will have Claire Dufour’s hand in marriage has drawn the attention of an ambitious nobleman who has put together a sizable force. Using back country trails they have come upon a small farm where they decide to rest and refresh themselves and as the sun crosses its zenith they quickly find that the English have taken an interest in the very farm on which they stand. Rule set is Lion Rampant (modified), he can take up to 8 players (2 of which will assume overall command of a faction).”

Play Games, Earn RENOWN!!!

While players won’t be able to play in every game of the event (some are taking place simultaneously) or may only wish to participate in one of the scenarios we did want to find a way of rewarding loyal men-at-arms by acknowledging players for their loyalty to the crown and recognize truly heroic deeds. To that end each player will be listed by the scribes in the roll call and each game will further reward players with Renown. At the end of the event, Sunday at Hurricon, we will recognize the player(s) who participated in the most games as well as the players that achieved the most renown!!!

Lions & Leopards – Coming to Hurricon 2016

FB-Announcement

Lions and Leopards is a medieval gaming event that will be held at Hurricon 2016, September 22nd-25th.  It will include a variety of games played using a number of platforms (RPG, miniatures, etc…) that share a common, over-arching story line set during the Hundred Years War. Each game will help the story unfold by adding to the setting, expanding upon a sub-plot or directly affecting the story’s course. As the event progresses the actions of the players will determine the fate of the main characters and, ultimately, which faction will emerge victorious.

More information will be revealed in the coming months. To receive updates signup up to this blog and follow The Just Dice League on Facebook and Twitter.

You may be wondering….

Do I have to participate in the entire event?

Absolutely not! Each game in the series will be a stand on its own and provide the participants a complete gaming experience. The results of the game will be consolidated into the overall story in much the same way as a “choose your own adventure” style book works. On Sunday of the convention we will be hosting a presentation to give players a look at the story in it’s entirety as well as a peek behind the scenes.

What is Hurricon?

Hurricon is a convention hosted by the Historical Miniature Gaming Society’s South Chapter (HMGS-S) and features some of the best gaming in Central Florida. While the show is grounded in historical miniatures gaming there are games across every genre and format.

How do I sign up for the event?

Game registration will be done via the convention staff. They usually open up general registration 1-2 months after their Spring convention, Recon (APR 28- MAY1) and will post a Preliminary Event Listing (PEL) after GM’s begin submitting their games. To receive updates follow the HMGS-S Facebook page and/or join the HMGS-S Yahoo! Group.
