Our Warhammer Quest adventures continued tonight, and HOO BOY was this one rough, mostly due to having an absolute SHOCKER on the dice rolling! We played a "Deliverance" journey type, the story is that there's an evil all-consuming spell, the Suffocating Gravetide, wandering the streets that you need to outrun, and you need to warn the citizens of Ulfenkarn as you go so they can get inside and stay safe. The token that represents the Gravetide moves along one board section at a time and you need to stay in front of it or else you take two damage, and the board section that it was previously is destroyed along with any hostiles. The board itself isn't laid out ahead of time unlike the other journeys, instead you build it as you go by pulling from a deck and putting the appropriate tile down that's shown on the card along with any hostiles. There's a "Nightfall" token that moves along a track, and if you've taken enough turns and it gets to the end, all of the enemies are empowered and are significantly nastier (it represents night falling and all the undead becoming more powerful). We got fucked on that twice by rolling on the event table at the end of the turn and ending up on the "Move the Nightfall token one further space" and ended up having to fight the empowered hostiles much earlier than we otherwise should have, and we also had two "You don't get any Destiny dice at the start of next turn" results too (the Destiny dice are a pool of extra dice that the heroes can use in addition to their normal activation dice). The "Warn the citizens" bit is an action that requires an activation dice result of 6 so if you've rolled really poorly you might not be able to do it that turn, and to be successful in the mission requires eight warnings. Ordinarily this wouldn't have been too bad, but as I mentioned before we had just dreadful rolls for like everything. As an example, @yayKM rolled five dice that would require a roll of 3+ to be successful attacks, and only succeeded on one of them. There were also multiple really bad rolls on defence AND attempting to heal wounds, to the point that we weren't entirely sure we were going to succeed in the mission without everyone being taken out of action. As it was, we made it by the skin of our teeth, of @yayKM's two heroes one had taken three grievous wounds (out of a maximum of four before you're out of action) and the other had two, and one of my heroes also had two grievous wound counters as well. We had a final fight where we needed to get past a group of hostiles, and JUST BARELY made it by having @yayKM's extremely witchhunter manage to just limp into the final board section and trigger the last warning we needed to end the game. And just as a final "Fuck you", the roll on the very final event table at the end was dreadful too and all the heroes had to discard their treasure cards.
