Rangers of Shadowdeep – M1


July 3, 2019 by wargamerchris

We played the first icomic scenario of ROSD. We played with two young rangers working together to stave off the zombies and rescue the civilians.

This scenario can be brutal – there are a lot of zombies and they aren’t easy. It didn’t help that the two young dice rollers seemed to roll high on behalf of the baddies!

The simple challenge in this mission is to get to all of the clue markers, the party wants to split up, but it also leaves the characters exposed in singles or pairs against many newly minted zombies.

In the end, our heroes only lost their hound and he came back in the post-mission sequence.

Hoping to get another game in this weekend.
