Autumn Conclave 2013 - WHW 28th September
« on: March 31, 2013, 08:19:47 PM »
Gavs' Edit:

Calling All Inquisitors!

The news has been heavy of late, with the Specialist Games range dwindling and models becoming unavailable.
And yet, The Conclave still stands. Our members host precious gaming and modelling articles, produce inspiring miniatures, develop new rules for playtesting and share their adventures on the tabletop.

The Conclave still organises and supports events throughout the year; the yearly Inquisitor Grand Tournament and several Conclave Gaming Days.
This announcement continues this theme; several tables have been booked at Warhammer World, Nottingham on 28 September 2013 for the latest Conclave Gaming Day - 'The Eramus Affair'.
During the day, players will investigate the fallout from a previous Conclave, dealing with an illegal weapons trade centered around the Rogue Trader Eramus, and Imperial world of Obcultus.

The playerpack can be found hosted on The Conclave:
http://www.the-conclave.co.uk/13-pack.pdf

and a corresponding forum thread:
www.the-conclave.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2317

The Conclave also recognises the changes in the manner Inquisitor has been played over the years. Originally released as a 54mm-scale wargame, it is now commonly played at both 54mm and 28mm scales, and both are welcome at this event.

From seasoned veterans to those interested in learning the game; all are welcome - the idea behind this Conclave is to gather a plethora of Inquisitor players; bring those who play and enjoy the game in to one place and keep supporting the community life of GW's only true roleplay miniatures game!

While scenarios will be provided on the day, if you wish to run your own scenarios, PM Greenstuff Gav and we can arrange things!

it'd be helpful if you post on the end of the thread if you are or if you're hoping to come and scales you'd like to play; i'm not planning anything unusual regarding mixing scales or scores, but i can have 2 copies of the campaign to hand (with NPCs etc) so that both scales can run side by side!

+++Original Post Follows+++

Yesterday there was some discussion of what other events we might have this year and September was suggested as a possibility. I do have a vague idea for a campaign which I'd be happy to run - or if someone else wants to run an event that's fine by me.

Anyway I just thought I'd start a discussion thread and see what everyone thinks.

If September, could you please avoid the weekend of the 14th/15th if at all possible? I'm certainly interested in attending, but I can't change the date of a religious holiday to do so. :P

Other than that, this sounds very exciting.

I am always interested in opportunities to play Inquisitor.

I will definitely want to be involved in this.   I have a feeling I have a friend's wedding to attend in September, but will come back to you all with dates soon.

Yes, please everyone let me know dates when you're not available and I'll try to accommodate as many people as possible, but the limiting factor is likely to be when we can get tables at WHW.

I'm happy to run the event at both 28mm and 54mm, but I think we'll need a minimum of six players per scale to make a viable event (although if there are less, those players are still welcome, but I'll leave it to them to organise ad-hoc games rather than running an organised event).

The event I had in mind would probably be four games, and be based around the exploration and exploitation of a hitherto unexplored region of space - so perfect for Rogue Traders looking for new markets, Explorators out to find lost technology, Inquisitors keen to investigate and root out heresies before the region is brought into the Imperium, subversive cults looking to expand into a new area of space, missionaries spreading the Imperial truth, and so on. It wouldn't use the 'contact card' mechanic from previous events, and my initial plan instead has it sort of based on Monopoly with players fighting over both wealth and locations (but that might all change if it turns out to be too complicated or I come up with a better idea).

But, as I mentioned before, if someone else has an idea for an event they'd like to run then I'm happy to stand aside and let them take the reins. Running an event doesn't require loads of Inquisitor experience - mostly it needs a good idea and to be willing to put in the effort to see it through - so if someone does fancy giving it a try but wants some help from a more experienced player then I'm happy to let them run it and I'll offer my help and advice where needed.

I have only one question -- would this be run near to, or out of, the Carthax sector, or would you set it somewhere else entirely? This may influence party selection.

If I run that event it would be a region of space within reach of the Carthax sector.


EDIT: But I'm more interesting in having as many players as possible at the event than in getting involved in a discussion of precise locations or the travel arrangements of people's characters, so any introduction to the event is likely to say something as vague as 'The cessation of warp-storm Omega-921 and the opening of stable warp route to the Andraste Region has attracted adventurers from across the Imperium, including a substantial number from the Carthax sector...'.

I'd definitely be interested. Still kicking myself over mixing up the IGT dates!

Based on precedent regarding 28mm take-up, I think the best option would be to make it primarily 54mm and simply provide the option that players can bring 28mm models and reach their own consensus that a certain game might be at 28mm.

I'd like to see a properly shared event but, if I'm realistic about the matter, I'd say you'd need some really positive interest in a 28mm side to the event before it was worth investing the effort in arranging it.
I know events sometimes get late-comers, but it ain't gonna happen unless they already know there's going to be a good few others there.

Anyway, based on the description, it might serve as a decent basis to start the Ecclesiarchy warband I've had planned for a while - I'm sure the loud mouthed preacher would have fun trying to bring the area into the fold - which would actually give the Battle Sister some actual allies... but for the sake of actually getting models finished, I think I might be better off with either Skoll or Vance's warbands.

I agree, that's why I said we'd need at least six players at each scale to make it worth running - so far we've barely got enough players for 54mm never mind 28mm. I'll leave the thread up a week or two and see if it generates any more interest before I put any serious effort into planning a campaign. If we don't have enough players to make a one day campaign worthwhile then I think the day should go ahead and we can all bring scenarios and maybe schedule three longer games instead of four fast-paced ones.

I should be available in September. In fact I'll make sure I'm available as I've missed the last two events  :).

I'm going to be at that wedding the weekend of the 14th and 15th, so it's out for me.  I have a preference for the 7th of September though.

The 7th would narrowly miss the back end of another religious holiday (by all of twelve hours, IIRC), so I'm cool with that as well.
