Great Hall Burning - Step by Step - Rolf's Campaign

Raid.In Great Hall Burning there are two Campaigns. A small one where it's localized and player's choose their enemy and battles and the Grand Campaign where all the work is done for you, battles generated, and enemies actively follow their own agendas run by the game mechanics. I decided to use the smaller one for Rolf, my Viking Star. Here's his stats:
Rep 5
Star
Melee Class
Armor Class
Country of Danish Mercia
These stats I chose.

Social Standing 3. Rolf begins the game with this.

Rolled randomly he is in command of  one Rep 5 AC 4 Huscarl Melee Class unit.
6 Rep 5 Grunts and 1 Rep 4 Grunt for a total of a 7 man unit.

It's Spring 855 AD.
Viking Campaign Morale is 4 with the Conquest modifier.
I rolled to see who the Vikings were attacking - English Mercia. The Anglo Saxons objective is to hold their terrain.

Rolf's first Battle was a Scouting expedition into English Mercia. It was very uneventful, but Rolf gained 1 Fame Point.  Later he went to the town of Skoro - a pre-generated town used in Great Hall Burning that allows your Star to Interact with game run Non-Player Grunts, from King to Civilian and four other Professions in between. Rolf picked up 2 more Fame Points and met a Captain that would allow him the use of a Longboat. Great Hall Burning also has rules for naval combat as well as color counters.

Here's info on Rolf's Raid.

Great Hall Burning - Raid!

"You all know how this works… If you want to be King, you must kill me."


 - Ragnar Lothbrok in Vikings.

Great Hall Burning is the upcoming Viking Age rules set coming out next week. Inside you'll find a full Campaign System, ways for your Star to become King - it will be hard, but it IS possible. Rules for unit combat as well as Heroic Combat for smaller games. Units range from 4 to 12 figures and the game can be played with any minis, counters (we've provided over 200 PnP counters if you need them), and even with paper and pencil. Heck, this Battle report is in Power Point!

Great Hall Burning - How's the Campaign Work?

Like so many other THW games, we've added a Campaign to Great Hall Burning to tie your battles together. Here's the easy to track map we'll be using.

There are 12 Kingdoms that you can choose from to be your Home. "And I'm the King, right?" Good one! No, you start out as the Leader of one unit of Melee Troops - 8 figures.

From there the King - not you, not yet - decides who's Going to War. Once that's established you move into the opposing country or maybe they move into your country if they declared war on you.

All battles are fought in the country until one side or the other surrenders and is annexed.

"When am I the King?"

All in due time, IF you do well. More to come.
