This weekend I introduced Empire of the Dead to my friend Thomas, he has the rules but had not yet played a game. So I put together lists of roughly 150 shillings (starting point for a campaign) and used the contents of the Gentlemen's Club and Vampire starting boxes which have everything you need (and reach the starting points with no problem) and that is a rare thing when it comes to starting boxes.

The lists were

Gentlemen's Club
President with light pistol
Vice President with light pistol
2x Membership with hunting rifles
2x Membership with heavy pistols
1x Membership with light pistol

Vampire clan
Graf with sword
Consort with knife
Guardian with sword
1x Thrall with light pistol
2x Thrall with hunting rifles

The scenario was "Blissfull ignorance", a fun scenario where the game uses civilians wandering about the table – not knowing that they are about to get attacked by the forces of evil. As my gang was "evil" and Thomas Gentlemen "good" our objectives were to kidnap/rescue as many civilians off the table while trying to prevent the other player to achieve his goal. Each kidnapped/rescued civilian was worth 5 shilling in victory points (and as usual extra points for inflicting casualties/surviving the scenario).

Check the full AAR and more pictures on my blog:

Thanks for sharing. This is a fun rule set made more enjoyable by your scenario, write up and terrain. Nicely done (and I wish I lived next door)
