Welcome back!

After the Christmas lull (well, it wasn’t exactly a lull, over here ;-) ), we are finally back with a few new things.

First, as promised, the page for getting replacement dice is now live on this link.

Please note that the dice that you will receive if your set wears off too rapidly are the same material, shape and dimensions as the one originally shipped. They also display the exact same patterns on each side of the die. The ONLY difference is that they are correctly screen-printed, like they should always have been! :(

We might look at producing some other dice down the road (ie a heavier “deluxe” version in metal) but it was simply not possible now if we were to keep a reasonable cost and delivery date.

Also, as mentionned in our original post, we will mail those dice to anyone who requests them, at our own cost. All we kindly ask is that you try and refrain from asking for a replacement set if the one you received is holding up fine.

Of more interest to the actual game play: We have just pushed online an additional seven new adventures.

The first four (adventures # 11-14) are a succession of Lore adventures where the Free Companies of Seguin of Badefol face off the troops of Sir Arnold of Cervolles.

A month later, Seguin‘s forces confront the army of Jacques of Bourbon at the Lore version of the Battle of Brignais (adventure # 15), complete with a Hill Giant!

This set is completed by two Medieval adventures, the historical version of battle of Brignais, and the hundred years earlier battle of Lewes opposing Simon V of Montfort to King Henry III of England.

You can find them on BattleLore website.
Next week: The Creature Compendium goes live…

Enjoy!

    I also missed the updates.
    And are the heroes red banners?
    Because they are supposed to come in 2007 but they have not arrived, seems that they are to slow :-p

  3. Battle of Lewes, eh?

    Very nice; I have prepared one for Evesham involving lore (that might change after the test) and I was going to prepare one for Lewes later but I am glad you beat me to it.

    I am looking forward to playing that one.

    Evesham, there’s where Montfort died a year later…
    Very nice. looking forward to it.

    15A Brignais:

    Special Rules:
    Free Company infantry units on elevated terrain hexes, will battle in melee from hill to hill or down from a hill, with four battle dice.

    … er, is this to mean that the usual from-a-hill dice restriction of 3 is elevated to 4 for the Free Companies side of this scenario…

    …or is this to say this scenario beefs up the Blue infantry and incredibly supersizes the green infantry (if on hills)? By literal interpretation, it looks like green infantry get 4 dice attacking from hills. Which is huge.

    Any chance of making those online adventures available as PDF files? I always have difficulties printing out web pages at a reasonable quality on the colour printer here; it’s always easier with a PDF.

  7. eric says:

    Unfortunately, not right away. However PDF output is on our list of development features to add to the editor, eventually.

  8. Scott says:

    I have created PDF versions of each of these files using a PDF printer converter program. I was thinking of posting these on BoardGameGeek but thought I should ask permission first. Is it ok to post them there?

  9. ColtsFan76 says:

    In Scenario 16:

    The frensh under the Lion pennant? and the English under the fleur-de-lis? Is this a mistake or intentional?

  10. eric says:

    Actually, in the battle of Lewes, the troops under Montfort’s command weren’t French either per se (ie Londoners, etc…). And since by the end of the battle Montfort was “de facto” King of England, this seemed appropriate.

    A good abstract of the battle can be found here: http://www.britainexpress.com/History/battles/lewes.htm

    If you are using Mac OS X, you can easily create pdf files by:
    (click on the “print view” link of the scenario first)

    With your browser app active, click File>Print in the Mac’s Menu. In the pop-up print window, there will be a button that says:
    Save as PDF.

    BTW, thanks to everyone who submitted scenarios!

    Hi- Can I get the replacement dice for Battlelore? Mine are starting to have issues too now.

    Thanks

  14. jkottler says:

    Well, I had hoped to not order dice, but this weekend’s games revealed that mine had the issue. Thanks to DoW for handling this in a transparent, responsible, up-front manner!

  15. eric says:
