We decided to use Ulterior Motive cards... both were secret. Lizzy had "Construct Activation" which meant that if she got to a magic gateway on my side of the table, she could attempt to release a Golem that would join her side, and if it survived the game she could add it to her warband for future games taking the place of a soldier... I had "Rogue Homunculus" which meant that I had to place a zombie in the centre of the table to represent the Homunculus. As soon as anyone got within 6" of it it would be activated, and from then on it would do a magical shooting attack on anyone near enough.. the magical creature would also shout out magical secrets every turn. If I managed to kill it I would get a nice chunk of experience... If anyone from Lizzy's team managed to stay near enough to hear it's secret magical ramblings she would get a small amount of experience every turn...
|The table set up at the start of the game...|
The first few rounds saw both teams creeping towards the centre of the table, Lizzy's spellcasters both kept a bit of a distance, whilst she sent her heavy duty minions in to try and secure some treasures. Both my spellcasters managed to summon Minor Demons, and they went on into the centre to try and hinder Lizzy's team, whilst my Crossbowmen made for a walkway vantage point, and a couple of my guys headed straight for the Rogue Homunculus.. The secret of the homunculus didn't last for long, as Lizzy's team got near him in the second turn and he started shouting out his weird magic and blasting people with spells... a few of Lizzy's guys got in between to try and stop my guys from killing him... one of my Minor Demons headed over to try and do some damage... meanwhile Lizzy's Apprentice had climbed up a walkway on the other side of the square, she took a risk and attempted quite a hard spell - "Planar Tear" - and it was a success! - It opened a rift in the fabric of the universe and my Demon disappeared into it!!
