CURSE OF THE ALABASTER

Happy to announce an upcoming game being played in November in Los Angeles, "Curse of the Alabaster". An Inquisimunda narrative event comprised of several linked games.

Guests include Migsula, Weirding Way, The Killing Cold, Shibboleth, Mr Litotes, Grimpulp, as well a half dozen other talented hobbyists. With some special input & contributions from Thistle.

Plus plans in motion to Live Stream the entire event with Kenny Boucher and the Long War/Spikey Bits channels!

This will will serve as a thread where players can post pictures, etc.


GAME SETTING

Imagine a Black Ship, filled with psykers collected under a Letter of Marque by a mad Rogue Trader family, separate from the Navigators guild. Things are played loose and dangerously. And one trip, en route, the geller fields fail, and horrible possibilities enter their reality. Thousands die in the ensuing violence onboard, as the crew desperately tries to fight the chaos unleashed.

they pull closer to an industrial world, the nearest port from this storm, looking for respite. The navigator is killed in the conflict and the ship emerges from the warp into realspace with horrible miscalculation. It shatters into large sections, each emerging suddenly within a massive industrial hive spire.

The days, weeks, and months following are utter madness.

Psykers who survive the crash spill into the hive, bringing chaos. Nobles eager to hunt for new slaves for their service and pleasures. Precinct Arbites desperately trying to restore some semblance of order within their regions. Martial Law. Hive gangs of all sizes, colors, and goals jockeying for position with the new power imbalance. Salvage teams, scrappers, entering the ruins to gain rare technologies, seeking to strip the ship of valuables. Mercenaries descending into the industrial sump wastes seeking to catch psykers for the bounties on their heads. Inquisitors sent to clean up the mess....

..... More to come.....

..... Game inbound 11/5/16

This sounds properly, properly brilliant! And for all of us who live so far away that attending would have been pretty much impossible, I have to say that streaming the event is a genius idea, please make that happen if you can!

Very cool - since being a total gaming noob (just modelling here) which rules are you using for something like this? I still struggling with the two inq28 vs inquisimunda concepts ^o)

I am quite excited to be taking part in this new project! I am going to be making a small group of Adeptus Arbites, something I have been wanting to do for a long time now. My recent work on the Church of the Red Athenaeum for the Pilgrym project (namely the Order of the Crimson Hour sisters), gave me a lot of ideas of how I might make some true Arbites (particularly with making more compact shotguns). Below are a few pictures of the current status of my attempt at making some Arbitrators; I wanted to give them a very Judge Dredd vibe. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done with the models, but I wanted to see what people think!

Killing Cold, you're killing me. Nice start- very cool and they look very forboding. Don't want to be on the wrong end of the law.

That said, I'm most likely going to be on the wrong end of the law..... lol :)

Great job on the WIP Arbites, the trenchcoat, kneepads and brass aquilas really make them. And of course the helmet. You've even managed to get Dredd's scornful curled lip in there! Personally I always liked the big beefy shotguns of the classic minis, but I can see where you're coming from with something more stocky. Skillful work!

Hi guys- I'm experimenting with a new method for watermarking & hosting my pictures. Trying to streamline it on an iPad so the entire process is easier and faster than beforre

Spent the afternoon putting together a player packet, with a description of the event, war and creation, and our LA house rule list for psychic powers for this game event. Looks good, like a proper forge world style book. 😀

I have to edit and fix typos, some copy, but once complete we'll share it with the Inq community at large.

Re: picture hosting
Still playing around with the actual watermarks I'll use, but overall MUCH faster process. All on the iPad.

Old system was take the picture, get to my my studio computer, download to photos app, bring into photoshop, edit as needed & add a watermark, export as jpg, upload to browser based photobucket, then link here

New method: take the pic on the iPad, watermark with an app, upload with the photobucket app, post here. Took like 30 seconds. 😀

Much easier, especially since my main MacPro is not in my home but in my music studio a 15 min drive away

What app are you using to do the photo editing and graphic art on iPad? I've tried looking for such apps before but never really found anything suitable?
