Alrighty..this will be long. But here's the log of the tutorial Solomon gave after our Quest run with the unique item. I've heavily edited this and this is the short version. I've removed most of the misses and extraneous stuff, but it's still pretty long. Hope ya enjoy it though! I think it's pretty cool.

>l in case In the repair case you see a miniature gestalt draugen, a miniature undead battlefront, a black catapault, a miniature Lyras, a miniature Sharlir, a miniature mud-infused monstrosity and a miniature essence of corruption.



[The Crossing, Town Green Northeast] The cool, welcome expanse of the Town Green is a pleasant place to gather and exchange news, gossip and adventuring pointers with all the folk and races of Elanthia who are drawn to town. A soft, spongy carpet of well-manicured grass underfoot affords a comfortable cushion for sitting or sprawling out to enjoy a rare moment of rest in the warm sun. An ancient oak tree provides shelter for those so inclined. You also see some carved wooden benches, a shadowed gap behind the benches marked with a Thieves' Guild sign, a stone water trough, a small cobblestone walkway and a trodden dirt path. Also here: GameMaster Solomon who is sitting and Archivist Linett. Obvious paths: south, southwest, west.

You say, "Oh, Hi." Tyrun just arrived. Tyrun says, "Ta da." Solomon says, "Ohai." Tyrun says, "Ohaiuovarthareyondar." Tyrun waves to Solomon. Linett says, "Crazy people." Solomon says, "Ok....so....first, open your cases and take each piece out and TURN it to set yourself as the owner." Tyrun attaches a dark iron repair case embossed with the image of an undead battlefront to his belt. Linett puts her Hub in her repair case. Linett gets a white trebuchet from inside her repair case. Linett says, "Hah his wife already stole his." Tyrun says, "Check." Tyrun grins. Linett puts her trebuchet in her repair case. Tyrun asks, "After I set it as mine, then one?"

Tyrun puts his trebuchet in his repair case. Tyrun gets a black catapault from inside his repair case. Solomon says, "OK...you CAN play with two of the same sets, but it's much easier to have opposing ones, which you'll see in a moment." Linett asks, "How can you get the figurines?" Linett gets a white catapault from inside her repair case. Solomon says, "Only two players to a game, first off." Linett puts her catapault in her repair case. Solomon says, "So Linett and Tyrun, take out your bases ad drop them." Linett asks, "The base is the hub?" Solomon nods. Linett gets a miniature Sunfell Hub from inside her repair case. Linett drops a miniature Sunfell Hub. Solomon says, "Now...get your war machines out and put them ON your base." Linett rummages through a blue gold repair case embossed with the image of the Sunfell Hub with a frantic look of loss. Tyrun puts his catapault in his repair case. Linett gets a white catapault from inside her repair case.

Solomon says, "He's got a battleground, I believe." Linett sets her white catapault down on the walls of the miniature Hub and readies it for battle! Tyrun gets a miniature undead battlefront from inside his repair case. Linett says, "Oh dear." Linett gets a white trebuchet from inside her repair case. Linett sets her white trebuchet down on the walls of the miniature Hub and readies it for battle! Tyrun drops a miniature undead battlefront. Linett gets a miniature Claw of Tenemlor Elder figurine wearing a sleeveless raaho from inside her repair case. Linett says, "Ah they aren't figurines." Tyrun gets a black trebuchet from inside his repair case. Linett says, "They are elder, estata.. etc." Solomon says, "Now....before you pick your figures....you can only use three in a fight....so choose wisely." Solomon nods to Linett. Tyrun nods. Tyrun sets his black trebuchet down on the walls of the undead battlefront and readies it for battle! Linett puts her Elder in her repair case.

Solomon says, "That'll help in a moment, which you'll see." Linett gets a miniature Vipife figurine marred with complex cicatrix along his chest and neck from inside her repair case. Tyrun gets a miniature Lyras figurine dressed in dark purple robes from inside his repair case. Linett puts her Vipife in her repair case. Linett gets a miniature Agehrilor figurine wielding a wickedly curved dagger from inside her repair case. Solomon says, "When you've picked which three you want, make sure they're turned so you own them...and drop them." Linett puts her Agehrilor in her repair case. Linett says, "Drop them." Solomon nods. Linett asks, "Or put them on the hub?" Tyrun drops a miniature Lyras figurine dressed in dark purple robes. Solomon says, "Drop." Linett whimpers softly. Tyrun gets a black trebuchet from atop a miniature undead battlefront. Tyrun drops a black trebuchet. Linett says, "You teach us for twenty years to not drop stuff."

Tyrun picks up a black trebuchet. Linett grins. Tyrun puts his trebuchet in his repair case. Solomon says, "Treb goes ON your battlefront." Tyrun gets a miniature gestalt draugen from inside his repair case. Linett says, "The trebuchet shouldn't be on the .. okay good." Linett gets a miniature Agehrilor figurine wielding a wickedly curved dagger from inside her repair case. Tyrun drops a miniature gestalt draugen. Linett drops a miniature Agehrilor figurine wielding a wickedly curved dagger. Tyrun gets a black trebuchet from inside his repair case.

Linett gets a miniature Esata figurine holding a small leather scroll from inside her repair case. Solomon says, "Oher people shouldn't be able to get them if you've et them as yours." You say, "Lets see."

>get lyras That's not yours. You say, "Nope."

Linett drops a miniature Esata figurine holding a small leather scroll.

>get ageh That's not yours.

You say, "Nope." Solomon says, "And these items are covered by Ground Policy." Linett gets a miniature Vipife figurine marred with complex cicatrix along his chest and neck from inside her repair case. Solomon says, "So you'll be safe." Linett drops a miniature Vipife figurine marred with complex cicatrix along his chest and neck. Solomon says, "Ok....so....to win, you have to destroy your opponent's inner keep." You ask, "Meaning the janitor won't take 'em, at least for awhile? or at all?" Solomon says, "Not at all if you're playing." Solomon says, "And probably won't if you just leave them....but don't just leave them, just in case." Solomon sticks his tongue out at you in a playfully teasing manner. Linett grins. You ask, "Gotcha. but if you leave the area, then it's fair game for the janitor?" You nod.

Tyrun pulls a small lever on the black trebuchet. The black trebuchet launches a rocky projectile into the air!

Linett shrieks! Tyrun grins.

Solomon says, "So....when the game starts, just pick a mini that you want to use and PUSH it." Tyrun says, "Just sighting down your lines, you know, no big deal." Solomon says, "You'll get a RT." Linett exclaims, "He is already shooting at me!" Linett bops Tyrun over the head.

Linett presses the back of her miniature Agehrilor a bit. The miniature Agehrilor lunges forward and stabs at the undead battlefront's outer walls with a wickedly curved dagger crafted from razor-sharp obsidian!

Solomon says, "You can repair them, but it takes a LONG time to do, so odds are you won't want to do that in the middle of a right." Tyrun gets a black trebuchet from atop a miniature undead battlefront. Tyrun sets his black trebuchet down on the walls of the undead battlefront and readies it for battle! Solomon says, "When you put them in the case ad close it after a battle, the case will repair them all...it'll stay locked til everything is fixed." Linett says, "It says I can put the trebuchet on a castle." Magess Witchbaby just arrived. Linett says, "But i have a hub."

Tyrun pulls a small lever on the black trebuchet. The black trebuchet launches a rocky projectile into the air! The rocky projectile slams into the outer walls of Linett's miniature Hub, rattling it!

[The Crossing, Town Green Northeast] The cool, welcome expanse of the Town Green is a pleasant place to gather and exchange news, gossip and adventuring pointers with all the folk and races of Elanthia who are drawn to town. A soft, spongy carpet of well-manicured grass underfoot affords a comfortable cushion for sitting or sprawling beneath the star-studded night sky.

Meganlique says, "Okay that's cool."

Solomon says, "If you study the base, you can see there are also ways to repair it mid-game, but again, that has long roundtimes."

>study hub You think that the miniature Hub is a castle to be used in siegery games. The miniature Hub does not belong to you. You can TURN it to become the new owner, if you are holding it. You can DROP the miniature Hub to use it for a battle. You can POKE the miniature Hub during battle to repair its outer walls, PULL it to repair its inner walls, and PUSH it to repair a siege weapon placed on its walls. The miniature Hub can be REPAIRed to its full health.

Linett presses the back of her miniature Esata a bit. The miniature Esata chants a solemn prayer, but fails to hit anything with her magic!

Solomon says, "Some figurines will be better than others...they all have stats....and I'm pretty sure they can level up (if that bit got left in)." Solomon says, "There are also special edition figurines that will be super tough, but none of these are that style." Meganlique grins at Solomon. Linett says, "Vipife, come on." Solomon says, "These are, I believe, tougher than basic sets, so it might take a while to destroy the inner keep."

The body of the miniature Lyras spasms again and again, her torso rising and falling violently. With a final spasm, Lyras opens her eyes! The glassy black, pupilless, unseeing orbs manage to glare in defiance for one moment before going out.

Linett blinks. Solomon says, "And a Dwarven Warband team, of course." Solomon exclaims, "Lyras goes down!" You let out a resounding "Boo!" Linett says, "And I was just thinking that catapult sucked."

The miniature gestalt draugen lets out a monstrous rattle before falling apart, the necromantic tension finally overcome its mold.

You exclaim, "And the Battlefront takes a massive hit as well!"

Tyrun picks up a miniature gestalt draugen. Tyrun presses a small button on the back of the draugen, and its surface becomes slick and lustrous as all the tiny scratches on it disappear!

Solomon exclaims, "Draugen down!"

Tyrun drops a miniature gestalt draugen.

Linett pulls a small lever on the white catapault. The white catapault shoots a long arrow into the air!

Meganlique says, "Uhoh."

Meganlique gasps at Tyrun!

Tyrun pulls a small lever on the black trebuchet. The black trebuchet launches a rocky projectile into the air!

The rocky projectile slams into the inner keep of Linett's miniature Hub, shaking its foundations!

The miniature Hub's inner keep suddenly collapses in a vicious cascade of destruction!


Linett asks, "So if he keeps repairing things I kill , the batter never ends?" Solomon exclaims, "Winner!" Linett says, "Ah that is how you win." Meganlique asks, "Wait why are you dropping them all?" Solomon nods. Linett asks, "That should be highlighted maybe?" Linett peers quizzically at Solomon. Solomon says, "We're gonna make that stand out more." Solomon nods. Linett says, "Like monsters." Tyrun grins. Tyrun says, "I like it." Solomon says, "Got a few tweaks getting released shortly." Tyrun says, "I like it a lot." Linett says, "But even now I can't tell it is destroyed." Linett says, "With look or study."

You say, "Yeah, I think a longer RT on the repair is in order." Solomon says, "Yeah....I'll write that bit down and see if we can add in a way to tell....that won't be a little tweak, but it makes sense to have it in there." Linett says, "Right, it is only five seconds longer than shooting the trebuchet." Solomon nods. Tyrun says, "Yeah, they range between 20 and 30 seconds." Tyrun says, "Removing something and repairing it is 30, I think." Solomon says, "It'll be 60 minimum once the update gets pushed out." Linett says, "I can tell it is destroyed only if I try to repair it." Solomon nods. Tyrun picks up a miniature Lyras figurine dressed in dark purple robes. Tyrun puts his Lyras in his repair case. Tyrun gets a black trebuchet from atop a miniature undead battlefront. Solomon says, "And like I said, everything in the case and case closed repairs everything." Tyrun puts his trebuchet in his repair case. Linett gets a white trebuchet from atop a miniature Sunfell Hub. Meganlique winces.


Tyrun says, "That's pretty awesome." Tyrun grins. Tyrun says, "I like it." Solomon says, "So...that's how it works." Solomon grins. Witchbaby grins, revealing her dimples. You ask, "So..will these figurines be carvable in future?" Meganlique says, "That looked very cool." Solomon ponders. Solomon says, "Might be....not a bad idea." Linett puts her Hub in her repair case. Solomon says, "I'll have to talk to Kodius about that possibility." You say, "Like...study an animal or creature in the wild and then be able to carve it with the engineering skill." Linett says, "Oh my gosh." Linett says, "Guild leader wars." Meganlique grins at Linett.


You say, "That seems like such a perfect fit for those figurine patterns." Linett says, "Silvy can take on Agonar." Valif grins at Linett. Tyrun says, "So, just to recap." Linett rubs her hands together. Witchbaby laughs! Linett says to Solomon, "Guild Leader wars. For sure." Solomon exclaims, "Oh trust me, already gonna do that....Crossing GLs vs Haven GLs....ready, FIGHT!" Tyrun says, "The gave allows you 3 pieces, including your battleground. Trebuchets and catapults must be placed atop the battlegrounds." You ponder. Tyrun says, "Before dropping each piece, you must turn it to attune it to you." Tyrun says, "Only 2 players at a time." Linett asks, "Ah it is locked while it repairs?" Solomon nods to Tyrun. Solomon nods to Linett. Linett nods.


Tyrun says, "Upon dropping all 3 of your pieces, you manipulate the humanoids by pushing them to make them attack." Solomon nods to Tyrun. Tyrun says, "The distance weapons are utilized by the pull comand." Tyrun says, "Command." Solomon nods. Tyrun says, "You can study the battleground itself, or hub, to check its status to see if it needs repairs." Meganlique says, "And best to not use the same set as the enemy." Tyrun says, "Poke, pull, will fix the inner and outter walls." Meganlique grins at Tyrun. Solomon says, "May be able to eventually, I don't think it tells you damage levels yet, but I like the idea." Linett says, "Right, because the trebuchets get confused otherwise." Solomon nods to Tyrun. Tyrun says, "As it progreses, the figures and catapults will siege the hubs until the outter walls collapse." Solomon nods to Linett. Tyrun says, "Then the inner keep." Tyrun says, "And then finally the main structure itself." Linett says to Solomon, "Well otherwise you have no clue how desperately you need to repair in the midst of battle." Tyrun says, "Figures along the way can be destroyed, and then removed from the game board and dropped again after being repaired for 20 seconds (which is going up)."

Solomon says, "The objective is the inner keep....I THINK you can destroy that with siege engines without destroying the outer wall first....I may be wrong on that....lots of updates have been made since I originally started messing with this system."

P.S.

For GM Abasha, I think the description for Agehrilor seems off in one aspect. It says that she moves with careless grace and I think that perhaps it should be careful grace, maybe?

The leather-clad Prydaen woman's cat-slitted amber eyes have a sharp intensity to them. Her tawny mane is cropped short, and her thick fur matches its hue exactly. She is both lean and muscular, moving with the careless grace of a practiced war veteran.


Also, I noticed a couple pronoun errors in some of the attacks:

The miniature Lyras utters a foul phrase while pointing straight at a miniature Agehrilor figurine wielding a wickedly curved dagger, but her manages to nimbly dodge out of the way!

That might have been the only one actually, unsure, but that's the only one I could find in a second glance through the log.
