Battles Armageddon

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

The end is near. The sounds of battle pound helplessly in the hearts of your victims as you choose from an array of deviants and miscreants, and of noble and honorable characters who dare enter the midst of bloodlust. Take one step in the wrong direction and it is over. Step over the boundaries and you suffer. Release the anguish of your alter-ego and pulverize your enemies to a quick and painful death. Or simply rearrange their plans so that they pant, waiting for a chance to commit their own crimes. Battles Armageddon gives you the power to control various Mobs whose abilities and spells are at your very whim. With over 35 Mobs and 75 Spells and/or Abilities, you are charged with millions of combinations in which you, the Player, may gain Rank and master the Mobs within. Choose well, for as soon as it begins, Armageddon will take over and there will be only one victor, you or your best friend.

LIGHTNING, by J MaC game
pic included for better explanation.
please tell me what you think

rules:
1. the same teams offense line cannot cross its defensive line (opponent wins) (this would cause confusion)

2.one teams defense kills the other teams offense by forcing them both to meet at the end (defense line will always kill offensive line)

3.offensive lines can go through the middle of the defensive line but not the end

4.both or all teams offenses are alowed to cross each other at any piont even at end (defenses get the same rule)

5.any line can loop its self or go through its self, unlike the game “snake” (but the end of the line cannot retreat to the squar it was previosly in)

6. offenses try to make it to the goal, while the defense try to stop it

7.played on 10×10 grid (as showed in photo)

thank you for your time

Sovereign

Friday, August 15th, 2008

Abandoned

Your parents left you, left you to fend for yourself in the harsh world. Destined for a life of destitution and despair, you had little hope for survival.

The Emperor Rescued You

His servants found you and recognized the faintest sliver of greatness you held. They rescued you, gave you a new home and a new family.

All He Asks for in Return is Loyalty

Trained to be a warrior, to uphold the glory of the Empire. Your discipline is unmatched. Your skills unquestionable. Your word is law, backed by the Emperor himself. All he asks for in return is your unquestioning loyalty. All he asks for in return is that you serve him as a Sovereign.

Sovereign is a low-fantasy game centered on the themes of duty, loyalty, and power. Players take on the roles of Sovereigns. Orphans rescued by the known world’s greatest power, the Empire, Sovereigns are warriors beyond match. They are entrusted with the most dangerous duty in the world, protecting the people from evil and corrupt sorcery, as well as carrying out the will of the Emperor.

Sovereign uses a system that puts the focus and discipline of these warriors at the forefront and contains a setting with a rich backstory. Players should not read the Gamemaster’s Guide as this has the potential to spoil some of the more interesting setting elements.

  • The Sovereign Gamemasters Guide contains optional rules for sorcery, advice on running Sovereign, and a complete adventure.
  • Email the author at crayonsamurai@yahoo.com

Welcome to Sovereign

Sovereign is a low-fantasy setting where you and your fellow players take the roles of warriors without match, sworn by oaths of loyalty and a debt that can never be repaid to a hereditary emperor who rules over a vast empire. Adopted into the Emperor’s family, these warriors are granted the title “Sovereign.” From that point forward they dedicate their lives to endless training and service. Chief among their duties is protecting the Empire and its people against foul sorcerers, people born with
the ability to contact the forbidden realm of the spirit and enslave shades, the spirits of the dead, in order to gain great but unnatural power.

Due to a lifetime of intense training and discipline, Sovereigns have unparalleled martial abilities. Due to the backing of the Emperor, they have authority over all except the Emperor himself. Their authority and abilities, however, are tempered by a sacred oath and by responsibilities and debts they can never fully repay.

As a Sovereign, you are one of the known world’s most powerful weapons. You are the first and best line of defense for the greatest nation in existence and, as a result, for the entire world. Only you stand a chance against the evils of sorcery, a chance to defend the people’s right to live their lives.

Do you posses the strength to serve the Empire and fulfill your obligations?

SpellCaster

Friday, May 30th, 2008

SpellCaster is a magical and physical combat game for two or more players. Each player is represented by a Spell Caster, a warrior mage trained in the ways of combat and magic, skilled in powerful martial arts techniques and armed with a complete arsenal of spells. The goal is to defeat all others players and remain the last spell caster alive. SpellCaster uses ordinary playing cards, but is no ordinary card game as it combines hex/grid map strategy. Since the game uses poker cards, generic playing pieces and any plain hex or grid map it is easy to play and easy on the budget, unlike most any other collectible trading card game. SpellCaster uses a unique system of card combinations in preparing and casting spells.

Requirements

  • Graph or hex game mat or paper for a playing field
  • One playing piece and one standard poker deck (52+Joker) for each player.

Setup

  • Shuffle: Players shuffle their decks. Remember to keep your Joker in the deck.
  • Burn Card: Draw the first card from your deck and place face-up next to your deck to create a discard pile.
  • Draw: Each player Draws a hand of seven cards.
  • Spell Preparation: Charge cards by placing them from your hand face down in front of you, creating prearranged spells if possible. You may refer to the spells list. You do not have to Prepare any spells, but you may not continue until your hand is reduced to five cards. (It is acceptable to achieve this by discarding two cards; it just is not a good strategy). This is a rare time when you may Charge more than one card, or even every card in your hand.
  • Initiative: Play high-card with your opponent, by drawing one card from the top of your deck and placing it to the front of your deck to create a MOVE card (do not discard). If your cards match, draw another card. This card determines player turn order and starting movement; high card goes first, low second. You may move your playing piece in any direction to a maximum number of spaces equal to your MOVE card’s CV.
  • Replenish: Draw enough to restore your hand to five cards before the first turn. It is the high card winner’s choice to place their piece first on the board, or second. The first turn begins after all players’ game pieces are in play.

This game is sure to bring an exciting world of fun and entertainment; now, it’s up to you to take your weapon and head out. Are you ready?

Introduction
This is a Role Playing Game set in the futuristic nightmare of Warhammer 40,000 and this game comes off the hinges of the wonderful creation by Jason Morningstar, Dungeon Squad. Creators Neuicon and Sean Daniels have delved into the world of 40,000 when they were introduced to Dark Heresy (the official Role Playing Game of Warhammer 40,000), and quickly fell in love with it. Neuicon, having played Dungeon Squad, opted for something simple and fun to get those interested in Warhammer 40,000 into
gameplay using an exciting system, designed to entertain you and keep you on the edge of your seat!

This game comes off the release of Starcraft: Tactical Miniatures Combat, where you command skirmish-sized squads into battle against your foes! The fun of that game has helped in the inspiration to continue releasing new, fun and awesome games available to everyone!

Starcraft: Tactical Miniatures Combat

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Starcraft: Tactical Miniatures Combat is a game of skirmish-based combat set in the Starcraft Universe. This game was created by Neuicon and Sean Daniels, and play-tested over a period of time. The rules are fun, exciting and very simple to understand. If you have ever played Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures or Star Wars Miniatures, then you should know what to expect.

In the near future, we’ll be releasing new Army Books, Scenario Booklets and more for you to play out and enjoy! Now go, fight on, to the bitter end in the name of victory!

01. Introduction
This game is about winning in the glorious future of the Starcraft Universe; you will command small bands or small armies of soldiers, machines, aliens and more into battle against enemies to totally obliterate them as you shoot them, engage into close combat with them, blow them up, and more in this game of total war and destruction.

The idea for Starcraft: Tactical Miniatures Combat came from Neuicon and Sean Daniels in an attempt to create small battles on a tabletop, which meant that one could command forces of Terrans, Protoss and Zerg into battle and fight it out, without using hex grids or 1” grids; this game was meant to be played on regular 3-D terrain.

The Hive

Wednesday, June 6th, 2007

The Hive is a game set in a world that has been taken over by mobs under the control of an alien mind. Sometime in the late 196s, London Transportundercovered an alien spacecraft while excavating an extension at the Hobs Lane underground station. There was a lot of publicity about the discovery of Martians in London. However, it ended when a force in the craft awakened. The force took over the minds of those nearby, and welded them into a mob dedicated to killing any who would not join them.

At some point it all fell apart… I don’t know how. One day, everyone was normal – the next day, the mobs had arrived. Blank, mindless and with strange powers: they roamed the streets, killing everyone they met who wasn’t one of them.

A few of us are immune, but there are less of us everyday. The mob takes us. Some of us think that the controller lives in the structur e thay have been building in central London. Some of us think they’re Martians …
Just like poor Bernard did.
