Coming soon S.O. Killzone: Forlorn Hope
We are in the middle of making a players versus a GM style supplement for S.O. Killzone. I have been playtesting it myself and have had good success and am about ready to send it out to others to playtest.
I have decided to call the supplement Forlorn Hope it is an old military term that was made popular during the Napoleonic wars.
Forlorn Hope: A forlorn hope is a band of soldiers or other combatants chosen to take the leading part in a military operation, such as an assault on a defended position, where the risk of casualties is high.
This supplement is meant to pit teams of special operations groups into desperate fights versus the likes of a Daemonic incursion, Tyranid invasion or even a Zombie apocalypse. Your teams will work together to accomplish mission goals and hopefully survive while doing so.
This supplement works best with 2-3 players with one player acting as the game master running the adversary creatures.
This supplement will also give you the opportunity to play single player games of Killzone by utilizing a random creature generation dice and card mechanic in conjunction with random creature movement system. For those times that you or your buddies don't have a game master handy or just all want to play as the good guys.
I am very excited about this supplement it has been tons of fun to play so far, so plenty of great stuff in the future for Killzone!
