Event Details:Dark Age: Crimson Conquest League
League Rules Ver 0.1 (Beta)

By: Wade Vieira, Daniel Barboza, David Koske

During this league players fight to earn MP(Map points). Map points allow you to make certain actions on the MAP(See MAP actions below).

Game sizes:

Each game size grants bonus MP to the players regardless if you win or not. This helps offset the amount of time the higher point games take.

Game Size - MP value

350 - 0

500 - 1

750 - 1

1000 - 2

Bonus MP:

A player who fights an opponent that controls more territory than them earns 2MP automatically for the

fight. This is automatic points just for fighting. So for example a player that fights an opponent with

more territory at a 500pt game earns a base 3 points plus any MP earned from the objectives.

 

Limits:

So the most MP one person can get from a single battle is 8 MP, and the most MP a player can earn for

the week is 16 MP this is to help balance the league amongst the player base. This could be achieved in

just 2 games but is most likely to encompass 3 or 4 games each week. If a game would bring a player

over 16 MP the extra MP is lost.


MAP Actions:

This is where you can spend your MP. The cost for certain actions and their descriptions are as follows:

Action -  MP Cost  - Description

Move - 2 - Move onto one tile cannot capture or conquer

Capture (uncontested) - 3 - Move to tile and claim the uncontested tile

Conquer (Contested) - 4 - Move to tile and conquer the contested tile

Fortify* (can only use 2x/week) - 2 - Increase the conquer cost by 2MP for desired tile.

Raze (can only use 1x/week) - 1 - You lose claim on tile, tile cannot be captured for 1 week

*Some tiles are naturally FORTIFIED and therefore add +2MP to the cost to capture/conquer. These

tiles cannot be further fortified. FORTIFIED Tiles that are conquered lose FORTIFIED until the Action is

taken.

League Victory: Own the most territory and become the Crimson Conqueror!

Each Tile you Capture/Conquer adds to your Territory and gives you 1 LP(League point).

Resource tiles give you 2 LP and are clearly defined on the MAP.

At the end of this League the Player with the most LP is the CONQUERER

The winner will receive a faction starter box and have an advantage in the next league!

Reserved for players/standings/actions.

Standings as of 04/15/14
Josh 6MP
Dan 6MP
Jared 4MP
Dave 3MP

Please email me your actions:
dkoske@gmail.com
subject: CCL Actions

actions will be resolved in reverse order: meaning player with least amount of points will be applied first, tied players will be decided by a die roll.

If an action negates or nullifies another players action then MP is not spent.

Updated Rules:

Make Up Games: each player is allowed 1 make up game day to be used for a previous week.



This will run for about 4 weeks.

Players have from Thursday to Thursday to play games/earn points and report in either here or in person to complete their weekly actions.

The Map will be posted here and on the FB event page.

Map is 95% ready so here it is kids!!

First thoughts on editing the league:
We have a winner criteria set (most LP or territories) what are peoples thoughts on having 2 more categories: Most Territories Razed and Most Territories Fortified? This will help give players who cant get as many games in use their MP strategically to influence the map.

How about Peter Cottontail while you are at it! Sunday was a lot of fun and the game I played against Dave was really good a lot of back and forth. I look forward to more games.

The three way battle we did Thursday night was such a blood bath! I went from having the most models on the field in turn 1 to end of turn 2 less than Jarrod. I was glad we got a game in and everyone got to play I needed the distraction from the real world. I plan on being there Thursday night for another round. It is good to be playing Dark Age again I really enjoy this game a lot.

I know I have said this a few times but boy am I glad to see this game picking up again. I have been a fan for years. The league was good it was to bad that we didn't get a few of the other guys that have stuff into it. I will work at getting them to play more often. Dave, Thanks for running the map league and now that I am on Facebook I can keep up better on the next one.
