Cold Wars

I had a pretty good Cold Wars
We built custom table originally designed for Frostgrave, but used it for the Empire of the Dead campaign I am running at the HMGS cons.
I apologize for the paucity of the pictures.

The center of the table was  covered with fog.  The Count D'Monay entered on the far side of the glacier .  They mixed it up with the Zendarians and withdrew.  The Anacreon club entered on the left side, the Darkfire Club entered near the Neptune statue and Scotland yard entered to the right.  
The Anacreon club had met the Baron Dr. Von Frankenstein who was looking for a "friend"- they never made contact.
Darkfire and Scotland Yard mixed it up pretty quickly and things were not looking good for Darkfire until they summoned a bunch of Zombies.  The zombies must not have liked the cold since they were not much of a  factor before disappearing.   Darkfire discovered a bunch of Evil Snowmen in the swirling mist.  The snowmen caused a couple of casualties and slowed down Darkfire.  Scotland Yard made a break for the temple, and were slowed down by some ancient carnivorous birds on the platform of the temple.  The birds died, but not after wounding detective Inspector Morse and Inspector Nick Angel.  
Darkfire decided that the small Cthulu statues would make good decorations back home.  Unfortunately they failed their arcane and picking up the statue summoned 16 zombies, which attacked the remains of Scotland Yard as well as Darkfire.  It became a scramble for survival and the survivors extricated themselves.  
The next installment of the campaign will be in November

The next game was Frostgrave.  It was a teaching game, but after the first turn or two, the players were able to keep things going on their own.

  1. The cold emanating from the tabletop fogged my PC's monitor screen! Great job.
