The Wreck of the Herald of Eagles: Dice Chucker returns to Gippsland Gamers

Next week (ie: the 11th) we will return to the ravaged world of Harran and once more sail the pirate-riddled skylanes! Yes - Dice Chucker is returning for a new campaign in the Skyships of Harran setting.

Three weeks out from Aun en route to Yinnar, the skyship Herald of Eagles skims across the ocean, held a hundred feet up by the gently glowing runes engraved on her keel by the finest Gleeb skywrights. You stand about the deck, watching the marvels of the ocean, enjoying the wind in your hair and talking of the bright future which awaits you on the newly settled skisland of Yinnar. The day is warm, the sky clear, and flying fish leap from the waves beneath, but then, with the suddenness so characteristic of these tropical waters, clouds close in, the wind picks up, and the rains come down. Soon the crew are fighting desperately with the Herald’s sails, lightning flickers about the mast, and the hurricane screams through the rigging. One of the crew, eyes wide with panic shoves you below and shouts at you to stay there until the storm is past. The ship lurches and sways madly, driven pell mell before the winds, the rain beating on the deck and the roaring wind filling the hull with noise so loud you cannot hear one another. How long this lasts you cannot tell, and then, unbelievably, a louder noise assaults you. The hull bucks as it is struck a thunderous blow, hurling you and every loose object below decks upwards, and tearing great jagged rents in the hull timbers. To your horror, you realise the Herald of Eagles has crashed. In the maelstrom of water, shattering timbers and howling winds, you desperately grab at any solid objects you can lay hand to. As the ship is torn apart, you lose consciousness…

If that's not enough for you; we're going to be using the prototype V.4 rules, which add a few interesting new wrinkles to the gameplay. Character creation and the first part of the adventure will commence on the 11th.

Blood Bowl at Gippsland Gamers


Club funds have been wisely invested in a copy of the latest edition of Blood Bowl, the game of fantasy football. A game which can best be described as exactly like American football, but with orcs and slightly more violence. At the moment, we'll be limited to playing one game at a time since there's only one board in the game, however I have enough teams to allow for multiple games, and will be building a second board. So this Thursday you can learn to play, and hopefully the week after will see some more serious games happening, with the possibility of a league.
Bluggug's Biffo Ladz orc team converted from various things in the mists of time and then forgotten about until the new edition came out...

The DaSaad Naughty Men, a vintage chaos team which was part of a bundle of minis I got cheaply a few years ago, and which has been painted up in honour of the new edition.

Tim Wars: The GM awakens.

Tim has announced his intention to run a Star Wars EotE campaign at Gippsland Gamers. Character generation will take place this week (Thurs 5th) and games will kick in the week after. I for one am really stoked because I will finally get the chance to play in rather than GM my favourite system.
