PvP event 26/05/12 5pm uk time Moving Frontline Treasure, protect the convoy!
Message From Rivendell, to Captain General Tordur -
As you know, the kindred of Elros are called to the aid of Elessar, their chief, and the war in the south. As most of the Dunedain move to answer the summons, we must shore up the defences, which will be weakened with the loss of many sturdy rangers.
My sons go with them, and we must prepare for what may be the last alliance of elves and men, in this middle earth. Therefore the Coldfells Army, along with the heroes of Eriador, must shore up the defences as best they can, to prevent the remnants of Angmar striking into the homelands of the Free peoples of Eriador whilst we send our best warriors elsewhere.
Bear in mind however, that this fight, though important, is not the crucial one. And as we must send as many warriors as we can spare so too we must collect as much provender and gold to fund the campaign in the south, and send it hither in haste, lest the great enemy overwhelm Gondor and sweep westward before we can aid them.
Therefore, once you have resupplied the strong places of the free peoples with food and weapons, you must requisition as much Gold, Iron ore, and other valuable war supplies as can be carried and transport them to Rivendell, with as many warriors as can be spared to head south and fight for the last hope of the free peoples.
Ensure that these orders are entrusted to only the most reliable and cunning commanders, such as Connall and Bertromir of the Frontline warriors of Eriador, and others who you judge worthy of the task!
Our Objectives will be as follows -
1. Resupply Blue Keeps Elf Camp, Dwarf Camp and Hoarhallows with provisions.
2. Remove Treasure stashes from Friendly Keeps, EC, DC and HH.
3. Plunder enemy Gold from Keeps and OPs' (Yeay!)
4. Get the Treasure safely to Ost Ringdyr, to move down to Glan Vraig when it is all assembled.
Rules are simple.
1. Treasure and supply convoys will contain a number of Freep on treasure mounts. They may not dismount to fight, but may join in once dismounted by Creeps.
2. Treasure riders cannot be attacked with ranged or stealth. If dismounted this way = nil points for Creeps.
3. Guards around treasure riders must be attacked and at least a few killed before attacking riders - we have no collision detect but this is how we will try to replicate this.
4. I would prefer if TR is blue, and Lug red, at the beginning.
5. Locations. Minor Locations will be EC, OC, Spiders, DC and any OP
Major locations are any Keep, HH and Gothrum.
Therefore I suggest that we will award Freep event points based on the following criteria:
Supply Convoy reaches a friendly minor location: OP, EC, DC = 3 points per rider.
Supply Convoy reaches a friendly major location: any keep = 10 points per rider.
Treasure Convoy from minor location reaches Ost = 3 points per rider.
Treasure Convoy from major location reaches Ost = 10 points per rider.
Enemy minor locations plundered = 10 points. (flipped by convoy)
Enemy major locations plundered = 30 points. (flipped by convoy)
Treasure Convoys from enemy locations awarded as per friendly locations.
Special awards -
Dar Gazag Looted - Carrick carried to Ost = 50 points
Dar Gazag Ransacked - Mordiriths Crown carried to Ost = 100 points
Stand Firm - Convoy defended, ambushers scattered with treasure riders completely unharmed = 20 points, agreed with Creep leader.
Death and Glory - Convoy slaughtered but puts up a brave fight, 30 points, agreed with Creep leader.
Treasure/Supply Rider unseated = 3 points each
Treasure/Supply Rider killed = 10 points each
Freep minor location wiped with Convoy inside = 10 points (flipped or major NPC killed)
Freep major locations wiped with Convoy inside = 30 points (flipped or major NPC killed)
Special Awards -
Ost Ringdyr Looted - Mordiriths Crown taken to DG = 50 points
Ost Ringdyr Ransacked - Carrick taken to DG = 100 points
Freep Convoy wiped out = 30 points
Cunning Ambush - agreed with Freep leader, for sneaky tactics and evilness = 20 points
Death and Glory - Ambush slaughtered but puts up a brave fight, 30 points, agreed with Freep leader.
Potentially masses of points and hard to keep track of, but its all about the fun so we dont worry so much about it!
Please let me know if you are a leader intending to take part here, and your side and approximate numbers if possible.
some Voice comms will be arranged later.
