Communities of ice and fire, unrest is rife and passions are all too easily riled in the Northern Kingdoms.
On one day, four factions met over four bloody skirmishes.
And yet, on that day, amidst the many slain, from each faction, one victor would rise.
The tournament will consist of 4 scenario based games played over the course of the day. Each game will last 6 turns or 1h30m, whichever comes first.
As some players will be new to the game and may not have many miniatures yet, every person attending will have to bring at the very least a 35 rice list for their chosen faction (all starter sets are 35 rice). If you have enough miniatures and would like to, you may also bring an optional 50 rice list (though it must be from the same faction). At the point of a match up, if your opponent also has a 50 rice list you may both use your additional 50 rice lists. This ensures that new players can play evenly matched games, whilst more experienced players can play bigger forces if they wish.
As a bare minimum, all minis must be assembled and attached to bases. No proxies are allowed. Whilst painted would of course be nice, don't at all feel like you have to.
There will be at least one umpire who's role it is to resolve dispute, rules questions. Their decision is final, even if later shown to be inaccurate. That's just the way war works.
Your ticket price includes lunch. This will be provided from Street Food Chef and is a Quesadilla, bag of tortilla chips and a can of pop. The choice of fillings are Chicken, Pork, Beef or Vegi.
If you have any allergies / dietary requirements, please let us know in when ordering your ticket.
The following items will need to be brought along - don't forget anything or you may not be able to play!
The above is largely a summary of the main points
The crucible of power in this industrious land was known simply at The Outpost, where war is bought and traded.
30 Furnival Gate, Sheffield S1 4QP
tel: 0114 275 2172
The Outpost is a 5–10 minute walk from the train station.
By car, you want to park fairly near the city centre, or a cheaper option may be to park further out of town and get a Supertram in (get off at City Hall tram stop and walk down from there). It’s a Sunday, so shouldn’t be too busy. Parking is probably best in the APCOA car park also know as the Moor car park just opposite the fire station on Eyre Street. There is also the John Lewis carpark which is relatively reasonable and equally central.
The Outpost is a brand spanking new gaming centre in Sheffield city centre. They’re well set up for gamers, ie they have plenty of well built tables, scenery and of course a drinks / snacks machine. The tournament will be taking place up in the mezzanine floor - there is no disabled access to this area but they are more than willing to help anyone where appropriate.
He who rules this outpost, owns the forges of war and so control the whole region. New weapons of war are awarded to the victors.
This is our prize…
Some are store credit to be used in The Outpost, the rest are the latest Wave 6 releases.
Whilst this is a competitive tournament, we expect everyone to play fair, be nice to their opponents and have a good time.
… this is what we will fight and die for.
Four factions fought for honour, resource and political gain.
Clash of The North Kingdoms has been organised by me, Andy Marshall, as part of GCT Studio's Retainer program. When I'm not playing Bushido, nor painting their minis, I'm otherwise found up to my neck in HTML, CSS, Photoshop and ExpressionEngine as one half of Moogaloo, a digital design boutique. If you have any problems using this site or any other questions about the tournament, you can find me on Twitter as @moogaloo or @moosh07.
