Campaign: Heart of Darkness

I finally got things finished up for the Heart of Darkness campaign book!  Hooray!  I've already written several posts about it, but it's full of everything anyone could want from a Skirmish setting, Artefacts, a Command Trait, Mutations, Injuries, Spells, Prayers, and a Rewards Table.  It has five battleplans designed with the Dark Age of Sigmar aesthetic and story-driven gameplay in mind.  On top of that, it includes a brand new Quest mechanic.

I'm sure typos and whatnot will be found, so please let me know if you run across anything.  You can find the new book on the AoS Downloads page.

The Shepherd

Olaf coughed, choking on the tainted air and choking up bloody bits of Nurgle knows what.  Looking around, he noticed that nobody was watching, so he coughed louder and doubled over as if writhing in agony.  Maybe if the overseers saw how blessed he was, he would get recruited into the ranks of the Plaguetown yeoman.

Dark Age of Sigmar: Exploring the Ruins

The last major piece of content for "Heart of Darkness" is the Skirmish Rewards of Battle table.  For Dark Age of Sigmar, I thought it should focus on storytelling, so this Rewards of Battle table is kind of a hybrid between the Skirmish book version, and the old Mordheim exploration tables.

The Chosen Axes... of Hashut!

I got the Chosen Axes Shadespire warband for my birthday.  I've viewed Shadespire warbands as an opportunity to do some wacky conversions on a small scale such that they do not have to be followed up with a full army's worth of the same.  So far, it's been very rewarding and fun with my Bretonnian themed take on Steelheart's Champions, and now a Chaos Dwarf version of the Chosen Axes.

Dark Age of Sigmar: Burn the Witch

The fifth and final of my Dark Age of Sigmar Battleplans (for the moment anyway) is about a witch with the ability to possess people's bodies.  She has possessed the body of one of your (or your opponent's) models and must be exorcised.

Jessica Jones: Season 2

I've recently finished watching season 2 of Jessica Jones, and I've got to say that I was quite happy with it.  It was a very different animal from season 1, which I think is leading some people to disappointment.  I, however, found it to be much more my style, and I really enjoyed the subtlety of it as well as the characterization and subtext.

Beyond this point be spoilers.  Don't say you weren't warned!

Dark Age of Sigmar: Quests part 3

The third and final quest is my favorite so far.  We've got one quest that grants you a special Command Trait, one that grants you a special Artefact (which has been tweaked a fair bit since I shared it with you), and now one that grants your warband a special Battle Trait.
