    Altered Scape Event - Portland/Vancouver

    Post  Lord Kai on Tue Jul 23, 2013 12:59 am

    Hey Guys,

    What would you think about organizing a Heroscape event in the Vancouver/Portland area for a Saturday in August? I'd love to have one in Seattle, but honestly there are more players in the Portland area.

    Theme would be "Altered Scape" where we would allow

    1. our customs (chance to showcase our work)
    2. Competitive Unit Congress
    3. Heroscapers customs - like Scytale's or IshMEL's
    4. C3G Superheroes

    I am thinking more of an Event than a tournament but we can have prizes too (which I can provide). We could use a format similar to Seattle's NHSD from last year where we have pre-built armies on specific maps. Players could also bring their own armies so we can some play-testing against other people's ideas.

    I could email Roadrage and his crew to see if they could help out with map building, etc. I have plenty of prize support to bribe them for help.

    My thought would be that we would have a "Passport" that each player would have stamped to show which Armies they played. The most stamps would get a prize as well. We could have a short feedback page on each Passport.


    For the C3G, we could have a limited set of Heroes and Villains to show-down. If we did it Rolling Rumble style folks could choose to not play on C3G if they didn't want to. We could also reach out to Quolz and the local C3G players to see if they wanted to playtest anything with us.

    If this seems like a good idea, the next step would be finding a weekend when Nomad and Huskies could make the trip down, and that is good for Derek and Company. And then reaching out to Dice Age for hosting space.

    Let me know.

    Peace,
    *Kai

    Love the idea. With C3G we could have pre-built armies to choose from (a lot of guys don't have them). Heck, we could even do pre-built armies for the whole thing where no one has to bring anything. We could throw out the option of having people nominate their customs or others on the site (for us) to review for the Tourney. I love it. Maybe we could do a trial run in August and use this format for NHSD in October. Sounds like a blast- hopefully we can make it work in August.

    Great ideal!

    I'm all for it! I'm good with doing whatever it takes to make this happen . . .

    In my opinion, a tournament/game day like this would need a good two months prior notification to potential players and time for the directors to get the site/maps/armies/passports in order.

    I would suggest end of September or October. NHSD sounds like a good option as well.

    Plus - all of my weekends in August or either partially or fully booked up Sad

    Stopped by Dice Age today (got Piper Mice & Mystics for her b-day) and they are pretty busy through August (although I didn't ask about hosting anything there so that still might be an option.) August is pretty busy for us, maybe the 31st would work-questionable though.

    The 31st is Labor Day weekend which might be difficult for some . . . just an FYI. I'm usually working in my classroom getting things prepped a good chunk of that weekend. Speaking of labor, we are in a contract year, so I have no idea what the calendar is for me or if I will be working or holding a picket sign in my hand.

    Well, I was hoping for something sooner .. but sounds like you both are super-busy in August.

    Thanks for looking at your calendars.

    Sorry that a tournament in August won't work for me.

    It is not just us being busy . . .

    I think other potential invitees need some time to see what works on their calendars and have some to time to pencil it in or arrange plans. Personally, I think a two month notice is nice (I know I need it when scheduling things out), and it will give the planners time to prepare.

    Does this seem like a feasible option?

    I can do a quick Sunday run in August as a trial. Does this option have any merit? What about this Friday for a trial? I am going to be down in Vancouver - we can do a trial run and discuss the planning. I know Derek would love to have us!

    I'm just thinking . . .

    I can throw out an invite to some locals and see if they can make it this weekend if you come down Kai. Just a casual gathering.

    Please! . . . even if we don't get anyone else, it would still be fun for me to play test any and everything we got on the docket. I'm sure Jon has numerous figures to play-test.

    2 things. 1st- Kai is your last name is Doll? You'll find out why I need to know later.

    2nd- Should I through out and invite to Josh (roadrage), Jon (quozl), Paul (badhe who is back into the game), and Dysole for Friday night or Saturday early evening and into the night or both? I will also extend an offer to Robbdaman. Let me know so I can throw an invite their way.

    Yes that is my Last Name.

    My legal first name is Christopher (if you need that).


    Look at all the things you're learning about me : P


    Friday or Saturday .. doesn't really matter at this point. Saturday might be easier for Roadrage and company to trek up to Battleground.

    Do we want to reboot this idea for the 28th of Dec. at my place?

    Sounds good. How about we just do C3G, C3V/SoV, and NWHC. If Took comes, we can add in HoS. I'm not super interested in competitive congress and all of the thousands of other potential customs done by others - but that is just me.

    Derek, this is going to be at your place? Did you talk to Rob about getting the church?

    It might be good to add a thread to the Events section of Heroscapers for this.

    I haven't quite figured out my Xmas holiday yet. It is likely that I will be free for this .. but won't know for sure for another couple of weeks.

    The 28th doesn't work for the Schafte's anymore as a family function was scheduled, so we will see what happens.
