Ancient Gold and Goblins

Another game night at Cape Cod Wargaming, another Nightwatch mission. This time our Hunters explored ancient ruins deep in the Setet Forest pursuing rumors of a goblin tribe’s treasure horde.

Destresser: Tabletop Combat

To say it’s been quite a year is an understatement. And to think it ain’t over yet. *holds breath* Still, everyone here is mercifully healthy, reasonably sane, and cautiously optimistic about the future. Christmas is upon us. I’ve got family, friends, work, and projects lined up in the coming months…. ‘Hope springs eternal’, I guess. […]

Goretusk’s Totems

A NIGHTWATCH game I’ve been using Nightwatch to teach my two eldest grandsons the basics of wargaming and RPGs. Set piece, straight forward battles rather than complex missions with waves of enemies spawning at random from portals. Here, their Monster Hunters (and occasional Hirelings) fight Minions of Darkness led by a ‘Personality’, which isn’t a […]

Loggerheads Underground

Our Symbaroum adventure continues as our heroes investigate the logging site where a party of laborers went missing. A short, sharp clash with a Gwann revealed not only the loggers’ cause of death but an underground passage that led to a catacomb. Never ones to pass up a good delve, they decided to descend and […]

Defending the Sisters

A NIGHTWATCH Battle Report Isaac Von Dorn readied the grenadoes in his satchel. “The Verminkin are already here,” he said, peering through the trees. “Just two but it looks to be a lieutenant and one of the brute aberrations. They’re preparing for their foul ceremony.” Lael Sein cinched the shield straps and drew his sword. […]

Loggerheads

Mercifully, our weekly game sessions continue here at Cape Cod Wargame Commission. (Nothing like slaying monsters and defeating villains with friends to help you retain your sanity) Although we have reduced numbers, we do have a new member: Neighbor Mike. Four of us have embarked on another excursion into the great forest of Davokar. This […]

NIGHTWATCH Mancers

NIGHTWATCH, the solo/co-op monster hunting game, features four types of Hunters: Blades, Trackers, Alchemists, and Mancers. Today’s Guild spotlight is on the Mancers. Sorcerer, Mage, Wizard, Caster, Conjuror, Occultist… the names are as varied as the types of magic they wield and the times and places they dwell, but we’re talking about spellcasters. Magicians that […]

NIGHTWATCH: Branok’s Stairs

We were fortunate to be able to game last Tuesday evening. Tech-Max, Matt the Evil Meme Master, and Other Pat showed up for a quick game of Nightwatch. Adept-level Hunters and two Hirelings were tasked with defending the monument of a long-dead hero. Set in the foothills outside the village of Marren’s Eve, a Mancer, […]
