L5R JYTB Campaign Report 25 – Bad Omens in Blood

16 August, 2011

I should have had this up long, long ago but it got lost among other things (like GMing M&M).  Since we are back to this campaign on Thursday, figured I had better get it up for everyone’s reference.

JYTB Campaign Report 25
Something Bad is Happening

Our heroes, having cut down the core of the local blood cult, feel secure in their position.  Everything seems to be coming together in -at last- which is why the report of a mysterious murder is quite troubling.  Two villagers arrive at the magistrates’ compound to report that two of their friends is dead and drained of blood.

Review – Minions: Flux Horrors (for M&M)

16 August, 2011

While designed for a particular game world, the flux horrors can easily be slid into any ongoing campaign using M&M (which is what I intend to do with them).  They are a useful set of creatures if you wish to have creatures from beyond to throw at your players and the art for the monsters are very evocative.

The final assault came with waves of arrows, bolts and throwing weapons disrupting the ranks of the guards followed by a charge led by knights and holy warriors.  At last, it was only Hevron and his bannerman among a sea of sea but they did not sell their lives cheaply and the option to take him alive was never presented.  A cheer went up as his banner was forced to the ground and stained, at last, with the tyrant’s blood.

Tyrant’s War Banner

These banners are use to signal and rally soldiers loyal to a tyrant, they range from the simple and functional to the ornate and richly decorated but the design exemplifies the tyrant’s philosophy in some way.  However, a universal fact is that the banner pole is solidly built and capable of being used as a weapon.
