Players and Gamemasters often share the responsibility of the driver’s seat of the adventure, with each one responding and reacting to each other to create a fun and memorable story. Every once in a while, though, the players forcibly eject the DM and take control of the game in a bizarre, awesome, and unintentional way. Last week, for at least a little while, the inmates were in charge of their prison.

Well. I finally did It. With nine slayers assembled and painted, I decided to take them with me as my pair for Scaverous in what turned out to be a massive local tournament (32 players with multiple turned away). How did it go? Let’s talk about it!
Long, long ago, almost 3 years at this point, Fallout 4 was released. Thought it gets a bit of a bad rap in terms of some of its failing, and some of them are rather rough, it was still a very fun and enjoyable game. Killing super mutants and raiders in the Wasteland is something I just can’t get enough of. But there was something I wasn’t prepared for enjoying: Settlement Building.
I’ve been on a Scaverous kick since before Lock and Load, and I’ve really enjoyed my run with him, which has started to make me curious what I would pair him up with when I finally do get to a tournament. I’ve taken a look at a number of lists and am still trying to parse out what covers, and doesn’t cover the Lord Exhumator.
One of the best things about role-playing is making and playing an actual character. While there are many types of players and many types of characters, the ones I find the most fulfilling are those who I can feel coming to life as I am gaming. The character I’ve been playing for the last year or so is exactly this type of character, and it is thanks to what I have termed Crunchy Flavor”
Back in my day, Assassination was not only a viable solution to Warmachine and Hordes, it was one of, if not the, best solutions. Casters were squishy, spells were powerful, and knockdown was absolutely everywhere. This is how I cut my teeth, so Its no wonder that I itch for assassination all the time. Enter, the Scaverous Solution.
Back in May, I hit the end of the “best of” list from Banger, which is a pretty solid list, though some of the more esoteric ones just didn’t grab me the same way that I want my metal too. Now, I get to the suggestions from my friends of albums I may have missed. Let’s get to it!
In part 1, I went over the first day of lock and load, as well as the thought process to the pair and a little bit of travel and planning. Now, we’re going to look at day 2 and 3, which promise to be much less interesting, and see how Scaverous shook outplaying him in both Dark Host and Slaughter Fleet
Like every year, I made the annual trip to Seattle for Lock and Load for Privateers personal show, and like almost each other year, I enjoyed myself immensely. There was a time, early on in the planning process, that I was worried about the trip, and again just days prior when I had an extremely forbidding feeling about my decision, but it turns out it was just my brain being bad at being a brain. What did I do while in Seattle? Glad you asked!
