Looking to see if there is a place to discuss these rules. You know, whine about problems, discuss scenarios and all that.

I got my copy a couple weeks back, I've had time to read it and even try a small, solo game.

I've played a few times and would like to get a campaign going.

Roderick has just started a Pulp Action Library Yahoo Group. We can talk about Battle-Troll (and all our other rules) there.

What do you mean "whine about problems"? :)

MJS,
"whine about problems"?
After swiftly decapitating three karls, one of my favorite characters was just killed by a Great Blow in a small solo game I ran to learn the rules and see how they work out in practice. Obviously, this is wrong, wrong, wrong! 8^)

No, seriously, Roderick's Yahoo Group sounds great, and I am off to join.

Well, it's not so much "mine" as "ours"; I just set it up.

And I'm sure Achilles whined about getting killed by an arrow to the ankle, too!

In the last month the gallant FusilierDan has utterly wiped out my bands of less-than-heroes twice.

Including this past Thursday, when my huskarl, seizing a chance to take over from his dead chieftain, attacked Dan's leader and – with a momentary local advantage of numbers – drew the attack card that says %$#!!

No, that's what it says. It's for that moment when your brain completely fails to deal with anything. It's not a card you'd pick deliberately.

So my huskarl rushed in, failed to attack at all, and Dan stabbed him.

Then Dan hacked his leg off, just to prove the point.

Did it grow back? Or do you need a different card for that?

I didn't want to kill him but it was the easiest way to gain back some of my reputation points and save some money compensating the families of the slain.

You need to play the "Regrow limb" card. It's a unique feature of the game.

I should probably indicate that my last response was untrue. I do not want to miss a sale because someone says "I was looking for a skirmish game about Vikings, but not one with a sci-fi element to it."
