    The sages of Efengie have interpreted malign portents ahead. Follow the Efengie campaign through Malign Portents, Coalescence: the Desolation of Eristrat, and the rise of a horrible new daemonic queen! This book contains 5 narrative battleplans with a linked battles campaign framework, Regions of War rules for battling in the Vale of Efengie, and lots of pictures and stories from the past year of Age of Sigmar Game Days. This is book 4. Books 1-3 aren't necessary to enjoy the battleplans or storyline, but if you like this, you might like these others too! Book 1 Book 2 Book 3
  2. Our 2nd Year of Coalescence is titled The Desolation of Eristrat! Our plot picks up after last year's events and focuses on portions of the realms that have been destroyed by Eristrat. Players sign up for two factions, attempting to Empower or Banish the godbeast. We've written story hooks to help players feel like either choice makes sense for their allegiance. Something new that will be in our pack is a branching story, so the results of Game One lead to one of two possible battleplans for Game Two, each of which can spawn two possible outcomes for Game 3. We encourage the NEOs to construct the story of their event to join the overall narrative of Coalescence. As part of this design, we know that NEOs won't have a good deal of ability to prep for all these possible games. To help this, we're designing these as smaller games that wrap quicker and give the players longer to consider their story The course of the story is set as Banish or Empower wins games, but just like last year we'll find the winning team through other means besides straight victory. Look for something like last year's achievement scorecard, with even tighter integration into the story that's told through your games. Like last year we'll tally the results of the individual events and use this to advance the story of Coalescence. If you want to run Coalescence for your community, find your space for June 23rd! You will have the pack by the end of April. Thanks to all the NEOs that provided feedback to make this event better.
  3. The Coalescence: Malign Portents player pack for the Cardiff event is now ready! Coalescence: Malign Portents is a one day narrative campaign event set in Shyish during the Time of Tribulations. It will take place at the South Wales Gaming Centre (Firestorm Games) Cardiff, from 10AM to 6PM on Saturday 17th March 2018. That's pretty close so click that link and get registering! All you need is a 1500 pts Age of Sigmar army and a sense of adventure! Players of all ages and experience levels are welcome. If you haven't participated in an event like this before and aren't sure if it's right for you, I would encourage you to download the pack and take a look. This fun, casual event is perfect for anyone wanting to dip a toe in the water of narrative play. I think this event is going to be a huge amount of fun, and I would love for as many of you as possible to be a part of it. This is a great chance to meet other local AoS players and get involved in our friendly, growing AoS community. You can download the pack and register to participate in this exciting, FREE*, one day narrative campaign event by following this link: http://www.arcaneterrain.com/coalescencemp2018 If you have any questions about the event or the pack please let me know. *You'll just need to pay the usual entry/table fee as with any regular gaming session.
  4. I've finished the third Efengie Campaign book. These books are put together from the battleplans I use for the Age of Sigmar Game Days that I run more-or-less monthly at my FLGS. In this one (as with the other two below) we've got five battleplans, a campaign system, and some fun little stories about what went down. In the aftermath of the Coalescence War of the Ring, Sigmar's followers have been convinced of Efengie's strategic value. Follow the story of Sigmar's invasion, interlopers from the grim darkness beyond the Eye of Terror, and an epic power struggle with Colossal Red, the Queen of the Monsters. In this book, I made some changes to the Clash of Empires battleplan framework. The biggest change for anyone playing through the campaign book is that each battleplan now has two different battlefields with different secondary objectives. This fits in really nicely with the campaign system since now the winner of each battle gets to choose the battlefield for the next one. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the book! Also, here are links to the first two books if you want to get the whole story so far.

  8. As the 10th of June approaches, I'm sure many NEOs are plotting out the necessary details of running their COALESCENCE events (I myself have gotten in touch with my local WARHAMMER store and have scheduled a meeting this Saturday to discuss logistics of coordinating/running the event). However, as important as those details are, I know we're all detailing the possible narrative arcs of our events as well. We have Realms to select, landmarks to find and narrative elements to weave. To be frank, I'm curious what everybody is coming up with. So this topic is here to help folks to exchange their ideas for their respective events, whether it be what team they've at their event in, the landmarks they have chosen, or anything else they are thinking on. So feel free to brainstorm or air out any ideas! -Last
  9. @Drats and I are going to be running Coalescence on 10th June at: EXP (www.expleisure.com) Swan Wharf 60 Dace Rd London E3 3NQ Tickets are £10 (with a soft drink) or £13 (with a can of beer) and can be paid for by paypal: adamcunis@gmail.com as friends and family. Please post here or note in payment what alliance you will be bringing. Registration on the day is open from 9am and the awards/results should be done by 5.30 We would ask that you submit some back ground/ fluff for your general and army in advance, why are they specifically hunting for the shards? There will be bonuses for this submission and we expect all entrants to make an effort. The results will be plugged into the global event on the day, so your efforts can affect a global outcome for your chosen alliance! There will also be awards for various on the day things including best painted which I'll expand on soon. We've got 8 sign ups already so do get in touch! Player pack: We're going to have the three games at 1500, 1000, 1000 points (instead of 500 for game three, we want a bloody finale). Regarding force organisation as this is a Narrative event we will NOT be enforcing the Matched play minimum battleline (although feel more than welcome to run with battleline units if that suits your general's fluff). We will, however, be using general's handbook points. So please bring a 1500 point list with at least 1 HERO that could also be broken down to 1000 points. Adam and Kieron Entrants list: 1.

  13. You have a list of registered players, and you may have that list divided into teams, although you may want to wait on creating final team rosters and the pairings for the first round of games. Even a registered player may cancel the morning of the event, and you may have a drop-in player you can accommodate and add to the event. So we recommend you wait until your designated start time before you finalize your player list and start with pairings. Also, on the subject of organizing your players into teams and determining the pairings of players for the first round of games, give yourself at least 15 minutes between the start time of your event and the point when players begin picking table sides and deploying models. You probably know one of the unwritten rules for first round pairings-try not to match players that just spent hours in the car together driving to the event! Try to give everyone a chance to play someone new, possibly someone they've never played before. The first round is generally randomized, but there's no reason you can't use your discretion to create some dynamic matches. You may consider pairing two players that have similar preferences of style or hobby excellence, especially if they had never met before. The first round of an event is a good way to mix things up a bit and gets players socializing before the stakes for the day get too big. There are plenty of ways to determine random pairings, but in a team event like Coalescence you want players matched against players from other teams. Divide the players into their respective teams, either on paper or even just by having them stand together in separate groups. Giving colored stickers to players of the same team can help distinguish players from each team, but consider some simple name tags, especially if you're not expecting your usual group of players. Let the players in each team do the work for you-ask them to discuss among their teams to which players fall into specific catergories. Ask them to figure out which one drove the farthest, which player celebrated the most recent birthday, which player has the best painted army from among that team, which one stands the tallest or the shortest. After all the teams have selected members fitting each category (and if someone fits more than one, then ask them to pick one for each category), then you can just use the categories to match players across teams. Pair the tallest players in team green and red, blue and yellow. Then pair the players with the best painted armies in teams green and blue, red and yellow. Etc. Or you could just give playing cards or slips of numbered paper to each player and have players with matching cards or numbers pair up to play the first round. Be creative! This is a great opportunity for an ice breaking exercise and get your players talking with each other and working as a team. For subsequent rounds, you don't necessarily need to pair winners against winners and losers against losers, especially for a narrative event. Maybe two players had so much fun in their first game they want to fight a rematch, or maybe there has been some divisiveness in a team which has turned against itself. Trust your instincts as well as your wisdom. Or just make things completely random and trust in the luck of the draw. It's a narrative event, and the best way to create a story is by explaining how a twist of randomness led to an unveiled fate and the fulfillment (or disappointment) of destiny.
  14. You have a date, venue, and way to track registration for players intending to play in your event. You probably have a start and end time as well. Now you want to figure out how to fit all the games into the time limit you have. Keeping in mind that you'll need a little time at the start to get everyone settled and ready for the first match (and we will publish a post on how to pair players for matches in on Tuesday), and you'll need a little time at the end for recognition of achievements and awards, and it also might be a good idea to have some time designated for lunch... you want to be sure enough time is scheduled for players to complete their games! One relatively easy way to adjust the time allowed for game rounds is by adjusting the size of the armies involved, and since Coalescence is using matched play points you can scale this up or down. The suggested point values are 1,500 matched points which can also be broken into 1,000 and 500 point forces with a hero in each component. Six hours should be enough time to accommodate the three rounds of games with about 15 minutes between rounds for you to calculate scores and pair players for the next round. Two hours for the first round, 90-minutes for the second, and two hours for the third (even at 500 points the third round is a multi-player Triumph & Treachery game so will take more time to resolve). Experienced players will likely complete games in less time than that. If you're aiming for an 8-hour event (including lunch), you could consider scaling up the point values to 2K, 1.5K, and 750 points respectively. One NEO, for example, only has 5 hours for the event and is limiting players to 1,000 points in the first round, 750 in the second, and 500 in the third. It is usually easier to schedule more time than actually needed (you can always grant a longer period for lunch and allow yourself a little more time for scoring), especially since this is a narrative event and many players may want to socialize more than a tournament and talk about the stories behind their armies and heroes. Not providing enough time for game rounds may rush players, although that looming deadline of "dice down" may add some pressure and feeling of action moving toward capturing the shard before the other teams can do so! Consider the players you know are attending, and keep their play styles in mind. If your group is experienced and enjoys the intensity of playing games within a tight time limit and aren't usually interested in talking about the finer points of narrative over a luxuriously drawn-out lunch hour, then consider shortening the the scheduled time for game rounds. There is at least one NEO's event which is featuring some skirmish action between rounds, so you could consider adding an additional round or a lightning skirmish round to fill the schedule. But make sure you provide enough time for your players to enjoy their games and enjoy the time to socialize between games. And give yourself enough time to manage the event so you don't feel rushed. With a wider schedule you may even have time to keep track of everything and play in some games yourself! The final part of the pack is being polished as this post is published and will be out in the next day. Look over the battleplans and determine how much time you have and whether you should modify the size of armies or number of game rounds. As always, you can write directly to the NEON team at coalescence.event@gmail.com Thanks!
  15. Today we have a post from NEO Chuck Moore about planning to run his Coalescence event. Hey Everyone! Chuck from The Realm Gate Blog here. I was invited by the NEON Team to talk to you about all the preparation I have been doing for the one-day Age of Sigmar global Coalescence event! You can see my follow up post later this week. Ever since I was able to confirm dates and sign up to run the event it has been a whirlwind of activity! If you are looking to run the event in your area there is still plenty of time to get things in motion. The How to NEO posts on TGA are a great resource to check out. When I began preparing for the event, after I confirmed the dates at my local club, I started by writing out what I wanted from the event in my hobby journal. First, I wanted to promote beyond the local club with flyers and social media. Second, I wanted to ensure those visiting got to play on the best tables the club could produce and thankfully this was already on the club's mind. Lastly, I wanted to give out as many goodies as I could and thanks to my FLGS The Toy Soldier Gallery and Games Workshop was officially confirmed as of this past weekend. The How to Neo blog posted up a great blank flyer in order to use to promote your event and thankfully I had a bit of Photoshop background and got to work. I created a simple flyer based on another Neo's event flyer that seemed to work nicely. I had them printed on some heavy card stock and began hanging them in all the local stores. My local Warhammer store was also excited to help me promote the event. While word of mouth and guerrilla marketing can be effective it is the modern age and I headed over to social media to create the event and post it on all the local groups. I was delighted to see others began to share and comment on the event and some even shared it to their local pages before I had a chance. It was a good community feeling as people were getting excited about the upcoming event. After the excitement calmed in my head the realization that I had to ensure a great event began to set in and the daunting task truly began. Recently, my Club has looked at its current collection of terrain and tables and saw we were lacking in quality. We are dedicating out next Club Day to repairing and creating terrain for ourselves. The club is moving in a very positive direction and I couldn't ask for anything more as their recent efforts have been humbling. I looked at myself and my personal collection of terrain I have unpainted. I am working on painting it all to prepare for the event and have made good progress. If funds and time allow I plan to pick up one of the new FLG Mats from Frontline gaming to have a great Table 1 for the event. The last item in my mind to prepare for the event was prize support. I have commitments from players who will be driving in and possibly spending the night nearby to participate in the event and I wanted to ensure they all had a chance at some great prizes. My local club is and always has been a Free to Play club and it will remain so for the event as well. It may seem like a conundrum to have prize support without any kind of entry fee, but it isn't as hard as you might think. The first thing was to create awards to hand out. I will be printing and be framing these to hand out alongside the prize support. Our club plays in the basement of our local Public Library. They offer us this space for free and we have plenty of space for 30+ players at any one time. Plus being in the basement we do not have to be concerned with noise as much. Being an independent club we can go directly to Games Workshop to request support by emailing their community team, but we are very lucky to have a local FLGS that supports us within the town. They do not have space enough for us to play which is why we play at the Library, but they are a key part of our Club. Through them, as well as support from Games Workshop, the event will have a plethora of Games Workshop Kits to be passed out as awards. All I had to do was ask, it is really that simple! Okay, maybe not that simple. I have run the Age of Sigmar events for the club since the game was released. The owner of the FLGS knows my commitment and the effort I put into my events so he was very willing to help out alongside GW for the event. Creating that relationship with FLGS is important, but establishing yourself as an event leader in your Club is the key as not every club has an FLGS near. If your local Club doesn't have a clear leader for Age of Sigmar Events I cannot recommend running Coalescence enough. The NEON team has really made this easy and with the soon to be releasing event pack you have all the tools to succeed. There is still plenty of time to get the event ready. All you need is the ambition to do it! If you have any questions for me please feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or any of the NEO's out there as I know they would be happy to help. Please check out my follow up post about this topic on my usual Friday post on blog. Happy Hobbying!

  19. Our post today about collecting terrain for your event was provided by @Mitzy, one of the NEOs behind the Realms at War event. Introduction: So, you’re putting on an event, what’s better, you’ve decided to take the plunge and use Coalescence as your means to do so. Well as always with us NEO’s we are here to help and guide you through this process. This post focuses on the battlefield and how you can populate it quickly and easily. After all, if there is one hugely improved feature of the Warhammer Age of Sigmar game, it’s that Terrain features heavily and is something to be celebrated! Terrain needn’t be a worry or a factor that should put you off however. But you do need to consider several factors, and in this post I will try to break down these factors and give you some tips on how to get over the hazards out there. Venue: Well, you have come this far and are organising an event so by now you have decided where you are going to play right? The first time my local gaming group (EATBATS) put on an event we deliberately picked a venue (in that instance a local rugby club) which had tables and chairs we could use. Gaming surface: We had tables, but we needed to cover them so that the battlefield looked inviting to play on. For our first event we actually bought 6’x4’ (183cm x 122cm) chipboard sheets and laid them on top of the rugby club tables. These were all painted green with regular emulsion paint from our local DIY store. Nowadays, of course, there are several manufacturers of battlements printed on soft rubberised mousemat material. This makes for a vastly superior gaming surface but comes at a cost. For your first event you really don’t need to worry about this as it is purely an optional extra. It is definitely worth talking to your friends and gaming colleagues to see if they would help you by loaning you their mats/gaming surfaces. Terrain: The starting point here is to document your own personal collection of terrain. For our first event we only had access to our own terrain (generally we all had roughly enough to cover one 6’x4’ tabletop) we then set about each buying a couple of pieces to add to our personal collections that could be used on the day. It is worth pointing out that a lot of the events run in the UK ask each player to bring a selection of terrain with them on the day along with their army (usually the request is for a minimum of 5 pieces). This way you can circumnavigate the need to have your own vast collection waiting for tournament use. However, for me personally the terrain is the thing that I get the most hobby enjoyment from, and each event I help to run is an opportunity for me to push myself to create bigger and better terrain pieces. For some examples of the types of extreme you can go to it is worth visiting the Realms at War (RAW) tables HERE. For RAW as you can see in the photos we really let our imaginations run wild and made bespoke tables for five of the Mortal Realms. Small scatter terrain can easily be built using everyday items leftover in the house as well as clipping every last item off those old unwanted model sprues. You never know when you might want to adorn a piece of terrain with spare weapons or cuts of meat etc (the Giant kit from Games Workshop is one of my all time favourites as it has a wealth of bits you can use in terrain building). You will see in the photos in the RAW blog that some of the simplest things were really very easy. The corn fields for example were simply a coir (coconut fibre) mat cut in to rough field shapes. Ruined temple pieces were made from offcuts of plasticard cut to look like flagstones with old plaster wedding cake pillars. The sky really is the limit Below are links to some of the great YouTube channels that I subscribe to, these guys and girls have all been sources of inspiration for me in my terrain adventure. I hope that this has taken some of the weight off your shoulders and you can see that whilst terrain is important for the success of your event it isn’t something to be scared of! If you want to ask me any questions please message me on Twitter @EATBATSmitzy Cheers @Mitzy Links: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTerrainTutor https://www.youtube.com/user/NYNHHkathy https://www.youtube.com/user/Terranscapes https://www.youtube.com/user/theDMsCraft

  21. If you're signed up to run your own Coalescence event on June 10th then you should have seen the first part of the event pack arrive in your inbox. The last page of that document included a graphic with some open space ready to be filled with details concerning the location, start and end times, and how to register for your own local Coalescence event! Opening the graphic in an editing program and adding some text can provide a great flyer personalized to your particular local event. @Bostian created one for the event he's running at his local public library to share on social media pages to promote and get players planning to attend.

  24. The Coalescence narrative:
  25. You have a date and time reserved at a venue for your event. You have decided if you're going to charge entry fees or not and have set up a system for players to register for your event. You're on your way to running an event. But an important part of planning between now and the date of your event is promotion. It's time to get the word out about your event to draw in players! Promotion is all about getting event details out to potential players. Telling all the players in your local gaming group is good, but consider the possibility of getting some players to drive in from another town for your event which will help expand the network of players and grow your local community. Some simple things often work without requiring any expensive advertising: Tell non-gaming friends and family about your event. Although they won't be interested in attending, they may know someone else that might want to participate. They might even know someone that used to play Warhammer years ago but doesn't know about Age of Sigmar or hasn't tried it yet. It's great to get an old player with an army to dust off and join an AoS event. Post on your social media networks. Of course, everyone posts on game forums and Facebook groups, but consider posting on your personal page. Again, you might know someone that knows someone else that you don't, and this is a great way to connect with a gamer that might not follow those same gaming groups. Hang flyers! Sure, hanging flyers at your game club or hobby store might seem old fashioned, but it's still a great way of getting the word out to folks that are interested in gaming. Also, check with local community bulletin boards, like in your public library. Remember to have a way for interested players to contact you to register or even just ask questions. Hand out cards. You don't need to have expensive business cards printed, but if you have a flyer then print some out at several sheets to a page and cut them apart to keep in your wallet or notebook so you can hand out to people you meet that might be interested. A flyer or card can be as simple as the date and time and location of the event. Pictures always make it more interesting but isn't required. You can always print out one of the Coalescence flyers and add the details about your specific event. The most effective (and inexpensive) means of promotion for an event is by word of mouth. Tell others about your event, giving them the basic details about what it is, where and when. People will ask you for more details if they're interested.
