FG: Doppleganger


Alan dug up a scenario for Frostgrave on the Lead Adventure Forum, so we had a crack at that.

basically, one or more of the war band members have been replaced with a doppelgänger, but they are only revealed when they seize some treasure.

So the battle took place between Old Mother Parma and Silas (and his apprentice Maggot).

Treasure polaced as normal.

The first treasure was picked up by the very lucky Old Mother Parma, spawned a wolf that promptly got into a battle to the death with Silkkas’ archer.

And then when Silas’ crew did pick up a treasure…it was a doppelgänger…

Meanwhile, a ruckus was occurring with lots of both war bands squabbling over another treasure chest.

Whilst Silas had my war hound tearing at his robes. (Good dog)

Maggot killed the doppelgänger in combat !

The first bit of good dice rolling Alan had – I had been ruling the roost on dice rolls so far. A rare occurrence at his place.

And then the war hound bought it.

Whilst my thuggette critically the bear.

My Control Animal spells had both failed, but I guess a club to the head is just as good.

And then it turned out one of my war band was also a doppelgänger…shortly after Alan had commented there weren’t many doppelgängers ! My Captain and Treasure Hunter dealt with them though.

Henrietta Quadalpoop dealt with a Treasure Hunter but got mobbed…

…resulting in both Henrietta and the thuggette going down.

Three treasures apiece, but Alan’s appalling luck on the dice meant he had a lot of recovery rolls to make, so Old Mother Parma emerged as the victorious old lady.

Played today, posted today, some form of miracle, pity about the other 5 games I have yet to edit and post !

Was the scenario fun ? Yes. It could however be better if you increased the chances of the doppelgängers turning up – you had to roll 15+ when picking up treasure…I’d go for 10 or maybe 12+ just to ensure a”healthy” number of doppleghangers turn up.

WE started but did not finish another game – due to flooding in the real world and a horrendous tail back in the city that I was keen to avoid. So maybe Wednesday two more games to be added. I might even get around to the game last year Jon and I played, and then the games we played a few weeks ago !
