Battle Report: Cherry Blossom Forest @ PAX Unplugged 2018

Once again, a few members of the MFZ community have gathered together at a PAX event to do battle.

Shades Corvid (4 Frames & 15 Systems) = (7 Points per Asset) * (6 assets) = 42 points.
   Armored Spotter One -- 2B/1Gd8/2Y/2W + SSR.
   Armored Spotter Two -- 2B/1Gd8/2Y/2W + SSR.
   Armored Spotter Three -- 2B/1Gd8/2Y/2W + SSR.
   Armored Sniper -- 2Ra+d8/1B/2W.

Me (5 Frames & 20 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (7 assets) = 21 points.  (Samurai)
   Yellow Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Black Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.

   White Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W + SSR.
   Orange Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.
   Lime Soldier -- 2Rd/1B/1G/1Y/2W.

Hydromancer (5 Frames & 20 Systems) = (3 Points per Asset) * (7 assets) = 21 points.
   Oliphant -- 2Rh+d8/1B/1Gd8/1Y/2W.

   Rock -- 2Ra/1B/1G/1Y/2W.

   Brimstone -- 2Rd/2B/1Y/2W + SSR(x3).

This is what the table looked like at the start of the game.

Events of Turn 1 (DDC @ 11): My White frame jumps up on the bridge and captures Hydromancer's Station there.  He promptly opens fire on that Frame, damaging it and the bridge.  My Yellow frame moves up to the river.  My Black frame jumps over to the other side of the bridge.  Pyragosa and Styx move towards Shades Corvid's defensive formation.  Oliphant moves towards the bridge.

Shades Corvid: 42 points.
Me: 24 points.
Hydromancer: 18 points.

Events of Turn 2 (DDC @ 8): My Black frame captures Shades Corvid's undefended Station.  Hydromance recaptures his Station with Oliphant.  Pyragosa and Styx make contact with Shades Corvid's defensive formation.  Shades loses a Frame.  My Orange frame moves up  to the river.

Shades Corvid: 28 points.
Me: 24 points.
Hydromancer: 21 points.

Events of Turn 3 (DDC @ 6): My Yellow frame moves up to Shades Corvid's defensive formation as it breaks.  One heavily damaged Armored Spotter makes a run for it.  My White frame is destroyed during that scrum.  

Shades Corvid: 28 points.
Me: 21 points.
Hydromancer: 21 points.

Events of Turn 4 (DDC @ 3): Shades Corvid's zombie frame captures my orange Station.  Then Shades Corvid loses another Frame.  Oliphant captures Shade's Station that was under my control.  Shade's Sniper frame is destroyed.  Styx captures Shade's primary Station.  My Orange frame crosses the river.  The Doomsday Clock is ticked to zero.

Hydromancer: 24 points.
Me: 18 points.
Shades Corvid: 14 points.

Here's a bunch of during/aftermath pictures.

Thoughts & Observations:
  • A die roll decided the Primary Attacker position.
  • I didn't take notes for this game.  At first because I wanted to hurry the game along, then because we were answering so many questions it was impossible to do so.
  • So any commentary on this is based on week old memories, the pictures I took, and asset tracking notes.
  • This game is the debut for this table setting.
  • I'll talk about how it was constructed in a later blog post.
  • This was my second game against both Shades Corvid and Hydromancer.
  • I loaned Shades the Stations they used in this game.
