Adeptus scenarios?

Postby Bolg_Was_Epic » Fri Feb 28, 2014 10:09 am

Anyone have an idea when these might come out? Its getting close to d day and Ive been spending money on models I plan on using but if they come out with some crazy scenarios I may have wasted money when I change my game plan. What do they generally do every year this is my first one.

Scenarios for Adepticon are generally not published before the tournament. However, its safe to assume they are probably similar to those from both the sourcebook and the old Legions of Middle Earth book. We generally don't see crazy home made scenarios. I believe the scenario packets from the previous years are available on the Adepticon webpage (under the Past Coverage sections)

expect objective driven scenarios. relatively standard but maybe a couple small twists

A good bet would be

domination type game
escape the board edge
and a lords of battle type engagement

Really escape the board edge?

So we find them out right when we get there?

Yep, When you check in for the event you will receive a "tournament packet" which will have the event rules and scoring sheets.

Do they do it to make sure people actually take armies they like instead of building them for the event?

That has certainly been part of the rationale. They goal has always been to reward well balanced armies. I dunno if it makes a difference but that's sort of how it's always been with the Rings events.

To be honest, there isn't a lot of variability that can be used for Rings scenarios. I think Boston Nazgul hit it correctly, I would assume something like the three that he mentioned.
