Privateer: Crossroads of Courage

 The rules for the newest Privateer league are available – get ready for war!

via Privateer:

War has once again swept across western Immoren, more fierce and bloody than ever before. As the atrocities of war continue to escalate, the people look to their kings, queens, and emperors for guidance. You are one of those mighty leaders, and you stand at a crossroads. What do you believe in? How will you lead your forces to victory?

Choose your side, and prepare to slay any who stand in your way.

Participation & Prizes

Participating in each league season is simple. Download the core rules packet that covers the general guidelines and rules for the entirety of the league, and then download the season specific rules for which season you are playing in.

Check with your local hobby store or game club to see if they are running the Crossroads league, and if not, encourage them to do so! Anyone can run and participate in the league, but only a registered game store or game club can order the prize kits available.

Each season there are two different participation prizes available. Holden Cards, and Coins of Fate. All participants receive their Holden Cards at the beginning of the league, as they are used throughout the league for any player wishing to play Holden in their games (and thereby shape his fate). The Coins of Fate are given to all players who participate in the league start to finish, and each Coin has a special feature in the following season of Crossroads.

The Fate of Holden

Each season’s prize kit comes with two Holden cards, a Courage and a Coward version. At the beginning of each week in a season, there is an online quiz you can take called the Crossroads (links below). The questions change each and every week. The answers you give will provide one of two results: Courage or Coward. Whichever result you get indicates which version of Holden you can use for that week of the season. You retake the quiz each week with new questions, meaning you’ll play the two versions of Holden throughout each league season.

Holden changes based on your experiences with him, your stories. Each season, during the month the season is running you can email and tell a story about something heroic, cowardly, amazing, awesome, or just silly that happened with your Holden in game. You can be as narrative as you like, or as brief. The more info the better though. For example you could mention things like what Faction you’ve been playing, who you were facing off against during this particularly epic story, what model you used to convert your own Holden … whatever you want to include!

Your stories, your experiences, your narrative are what shapes Holden, who will eventually be released as a full fledged WARMACHINE & HORDES model after the conclusion of the league in 2017!

Crossroads quiz links will become available at the start of the league on September 1st!
