Leagues / ComicReaders Downtown: Warmachine / Hordes: Journeyman League
« on: January 05, 2019, 10:57:48 PM »
JOURNEYMAN LEAGUE STRUCTURE

Introduction

All Journeyman events are designed to be easy for players of any skill level to participate in and track their results. You don’t need complicated tables or charts to run or play in a Journeyman event. All you need is an enthusiastic desire to destroy your foes and, if you choose to paint your newly acquired models, a bit of creativity.

Joining the Journeyman League

The concept of the Journeyman League is simple: Sign-up for the League by contacting ComicReaders Downtown, by posting on SaskGames, or by posting on the Warmachine Regina Facebook page.

League games start Wedneday, January 9, 2019 and the League runs until April 24, 2019. A final tournament will be run at the May 2019 Prairie Game Expo to wrap-up the League.

We require a minimum of 4 players for the Journeyman League.

There is no maximum number of players for the League, but only the Top 8 players will be able to participate in a special event at the end of the League, with other players being able to participate if someone from the Top 8 cannot participate.

League games are held at ComicReaders Downtown on Wednesday nights for the duration of the League, but League players can arrange to play at ComicReaders Downtown on other days, too, if it is convenient for the players and if space is available at ComicReaders Downtown. The more you play the more points you accumulate!

You can sign-up by responding to this post.

Army List

The composition of player army lists will be as follows:

Month 1 (January)
30 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Theme Forces Allowed

Month 2 (February)
45 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Theme Forces Allowed
Warcaster/Warlock Swap Allowed

Month 3 (March)
75 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Battle Engines, Theme Forces Allowed

Month 4 (April)
75 Points
Battlegroup, Units, Solos, Battle Engines, Theme Forces Allowed

At the start of each month after the first, when players create their new army list it must contain all the models/units used in their previous month's army list. The only exception to this rule is that at the onset of month four, players can change the warcaster or warlock they were using to a new warcaster or warlock but must use that new selection for the remainder of the month.

Model entries with variable point costs, such as units, can be adjusted each month. (For example, Charles adds a unit of Bane Knights to his army and plays them as a full-sized unit. In the next month, Charles must include Bane Knights in his army, but he can play them as a full-sized unit or a minimum-sized unit.)

Scenarios

Month 1 and 2 will use the "Trial by Fire" scenario.
Month 3 and 4 will use the "Journey's End" scenario.

You can find the details of these scenarios in the Privateer Press' Journeyman rules PDF.

BATTLE & BONUS POINTS
Players accumulate points through the duration of the League:

- Win (3 points)
- Tie (2 points)
- Loss (1 point)

There are a number of ways to earn and lose bonus points over the course of the League...
  • Creative Crusher - Any game played with a fully painted army without improper substitutes; +1 point
  • Destroyer  - The player with the most wins for the month is the Destroyer; +1 point
  • Battle Mad - The player with the most games played for the month; +1 point
  • Slayer of Champions - Win against the current Destroyer; +1 point
  • The Mentor – Taught / helped a player in the League who is new to Warmachine / Hordes; + 1 point per
  • Herald of Jerkdom - Players with complaints regarding his or her conduct within the month: Suspension*
*Multiple occurrences of this infraction will result in expulsion from the league and may affect eligibility from future ComicReaders Downtown events.

A player can play as many games each league week as he likes, but he cannot record a game against an opponent when the last game he played was against that same opponent.

PRIZES
Prizes are provided by ComicReaders Downtown; details of the prize will be given to the winners of each month. All the prizes will be randomly drawn. Number of entries will be determined by a player's number of games.  A player may only win one prize each month.

Overall standings only affect entry into the final League tournament (and bragging rights).

GAME SCHEDULE
Warmachine / Hordes players have been meeting at ComicReaders Downtown on Wednesday nights. Wednesday night will still be available for Warmachine / Hordes and this time can be used for League games. But players can meet at ComicReaders Downtown on other days, too, for League games, if space is available.

The store is generally not available: Friday nights due to other events in the store. Please call ComicReaders to see if there is any room in the store. Please use the Sask Games Forums (http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?board=4.0) to find out if there are major events happening in order to help you schedule matches against other players in the League. You can use this thread to help contact other players in the Leauge or you can do so through the Warmachine Regina Facebook page.

When wanting to play games at the store, be mindful of store hours. Keep in mind how long it takes to set up and clean up a game, an hour or two may not be enough time to play a full game. Staff may ask players to leave when it is time to close the store without a time warning.

GAME PLAY/REPORTING
There is no maximum number of games you can play within a month of the League.

Report wins and losses along with any bonuses to ComicReaders Downtown via email (downtown@comicreaders.com) or through the forum thread or on the Warmachine Regina Facebook page.

We no longer require players to fill out the Sportsmanship Criteria cards, but this does not mean we will not be monitoring conduct. Depending on severity of the issue, a suspension may be given out without a warning. Please refer to the general Code of Conduct expected of players: http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?topic=794.0

If you are spectating games, please refrain from helping players with strategy or influencing players’ decisions. If there is a rule error or clarity of a rule is under dispute, if you know the answer, refrain from simply telling the players what the rule is, but instead find evidence in the rulebook or FAQ / Errata.

THANKS
This League would not be possible without the dedication of ComicReaders' staff.

GAME: KeyForge: Call of the Archons
ORGANIZER: Khoa L
START TIME: 12:30PM
END TIME: 5:30PM
PLAYERS: minimum of 8 players
DETAILS: Prairie Game Expo is excited to host its first KeyForge Archon tournament. In this tournament, KeyForge players compete in a Swiss-style tournament, with each round being a single match. Wins and losses are reported to the tournament organizer (Khoa L). There will be four or five rounds depending on the number of players and the time available. Each round is 50 minutes.

Players are responsible for bringing all of the game components they need to play a game of KeyForge.
This includes Æmber tokens, damage counters, a chain tracker, and status cards. For Archon tournaments, players must also bring their own unique deck, including the deck’s identity card.

Any player who attempts to alter the contents of their deck so that it contains anything other than what is listed on its identity card is not eligible to compete in a KeyForge tournament. If, during the course of the tournament, a player is discovered to have altered their deck, that player is disqualified and his or her opponent receives a win for the round. Players must use the same deck for the duration of the tournament.

Each player’s identity card must be visible and accessible at all times. Players are only able  to review their opponent’s list prior to the match (standard 2 minute time limit).

KeyForge: Call of the Archons is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every single Archon Deck that you'll use to play is truly unique and one-of-a kind, with its own Archon and its own mixture of cards in the deck. If you pick up an Archon Deck, you know that you're the only person in existence with access to this exact deck and its distinct combination of cards. In fact, in just the first set of KeyForge, Call of the Archons, there are more than 104 quadrillion possible decks!

To register for a spot in the tournament please post a reply in this PGX forum.  Pre-registration is not necessary to participate and there is no limit to the number of players. If you are interested in KeyForge or already play KeyForge, there is a Facebook group where local KeyForge players chat about the game: https://www.facebook.com/groups/543652469481502/

Full, official tournament rules can be found here, but please keep in mind the tournament at PGX will be in the Relaxed format, which fosters support of new players and helps grow the KeyForge community.

KeyForge: Dawn of Discovery - Week #1

DESCRIPTION

Enter a world where anything is possible in KeyForge! In the center of the universe hangs the Crucible, an artificial world built from the pieces of countless planets. You will step into the role of a mighty Archon, racing to forge keys that unlock the Crucible’s hidden Vaults - before your opponent does!

Dawn of Discovery events are exploratory and welcoming events that encourage new players to learn from players already experienced with KeyForge.

There are three weekly events and then one final monthly event. The purpose of the weekly events is for players to become familiar with KeyForge and their own unique decks. The final monthly event is a chance for players to use everything they've learned against their opponents.

Each Dawn of Discovery event needs a minimum of 4 players. Events that do not trigger will be rescheduled.

WEEK 1 FORMAT

The first Dawn of Discovery event will be a sealed format event. Each player will buy 1 KeyForge deck from ComicReaders Downtown ($13.99 + tax) during event registration. At sealed tournaments, players are given only a few moments to look through it before they begin playing.

Players will need to bring all other game components with them (tokens, chain trackers, status cards). Due to the limited availability of the Call of Archons starter set which contains official game tokens, players will be allowed to bring suitable substitute tokens. When players are using substitutes, the player needs to show and explain the use of their substitutes to their opponent prior to the beginning of the match. This is to avoid any confusion regarding what the substitutes represent during the course of the match.

Each round is a single-game match. Report the win / loss to the tournament leader.

A win = 1 point
A loss = 0 points

The number of rounds is determined by the number of players. There are 3 rounds if there are 4 - 8 players. There are 4 rounds if there are 9 - 16 players.

Each match in a round is 35 minutes.

The first player in a match is determined in a random manner-- such as a toss of a coin.

The first player draws a starting hand of seven cards while the second player draws a starting hand of six cards.

Going to Time

When time is called for the round, the player who is currently taking their turn finishes their turn. If that player does not achieve victory by the end of their turn, then their opponent may take one last turn. If neither player has achieved victory (forged three Keys) at the end of the opponent’s last turn, they must follow the steps below, in order, to determine who receives a win for the current game.

1. Each player who has 6 or more Æmber forges 1 Key (removing the 6 Æmber from their pool as usual). Cards that affect Æmber costs have no effect during this step. Each player can only forge 1 key from this step.

2. The player with the most Keys forged is the winner. If there is a tie, proceed to step 3.

3. The player with the most remaining Æmber in their pool is the winner. If there is still a tie, proceed to step 4.

4. Each player selects one of their houses. Then, each player totals the number of friendly creatures in play of that house and adds the amount of bonus Æmber from that house’s cards still in their hand. This is that player’s “potential Æmber.” The player with the most potential Æmber is the winner. If there is still a tie, proceed to step 5.

5. The first player is the winner.

PRIZES

Prizes for Dawn of Discovery events are handed out based upon a player’s ranking.

Participation: The Top 8 players who participate in the event receives one Active House card of their choice, while supplies last.

Top Four: Each player receives one set of stun cards.

Winner: The overall winner of the weekly event receives one set of damage tokens.

Dragon Ball Super Card Game - Schedule for December 2018

DESCRIPTION

The Dragon Ball Super Card Game is the newest iteration of the Dragon Ball license applied to a collectable card game. While borrowing some basic terms and ideas from previous versions of the game, DBS introduces a number of new mechanics including a unique "combo" system, cards used for multiple purposes (energy, combos and characters) and a system designed to emulate the tendency of Dragon Ball characters to "power up" after taking damage.

Players of Dragon Ball Super meet at ComicReaders on Saturdays for casual games. This is a chance for experienced players to meet. It is also a chance for people to learn the game because the players are always welcome to teach newcomers.

If there are at least 8 players we can run a Tournament with prizes.

Starfinder RPG

DESCRIPTION

A New Era of Exploration

The Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild is a worldwide science fantasy campaign that puts you in the role of an agent of the Starfinder Society. The gods have mysteriously spirited Golarion away to an unknown location and refuse to answer questions about it. In its place, the cultures of that world have evolved and spread throughout the solar system, especially to a vast space platform called Absalom Station. Gifted access to a hyperspace dimension by an ascended AI deity, the residents of the system suddenly find themselves with the ability to travel faster than light, and the race is on to explore and colonize potentially millions of worlds. But there are horrors out there in the darkness…

Play in the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild is organized into Seasons, throughout which the actions and acheivements of you and your fellow Society agents create an ongoing storyline. Each season takes place across scenarios set in a variety of exotic locales across the world of Starfinder.

Year of Scoured Stars

The Starfinder Society is on the brink of ruin, having had to resort of mercenaries to maintain their hold on claimed planetoids, stellar regions, and archeological sites. After training to join a new cadre of Starfinders, it is up to you as a member of the Starfinder Society to help restore the organization. The Starfinder Society, with memories of the Scoured Stars incident still fresh, embarks on the quest to rebuild and discover the truth of what happened in the inaugural season: Year of Scoured Stars!

1-15: Save the Renkrodas

A Starfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3-6.

For decades, the feathered renkrodas of Castrovel have teetered on the brink of extinction. Sympathies have grown for species' plight, and thanks to contributions from Radaszam of the Acquisitives faction, a gala and pledge drive is scheduled in one of Castrovel's wilderness preserves. When the PCs attend the gala as Radaszam's escort, they quickly learn that a group of extremists have dangerous plans of their own to end to the renkrodas' plight. When these extremists launch a daring attack, it's up to the PCs to save the gala, save the attendees, and—most of all—save the renkrodas!

Content in Save the Renkrodas also contributes to the ongoing goals of the Acquisitives faction.
