All right, some updates:

After going 4-0 on my first day of the Journeyman, I went 2-2 in week 2, and wasn't able to make it to week 3.  I was well ahead of the pack on week 2, though, so I

My other Journeyman league wrapped up.  I won literally every game (Kozlov + MoW is a brick), except for the last game, which was to decide who gets the Destroyer award.  The last game was a combination of a couple strategic mistakes, bad dice rolls, and banging my head against a wall of tough Trolls.  I think the only thing that pulled its weight in my list was a full unit of Kossites.  Fortunately, losing that game makes me eligible for the only award that matters -- best painted!

I played a game into Grymkin and a game into Legion.

Grymkin, I dropped my Strakhov list.  It was just a playtest game, but my opponent ended up trying to jam me with pumpkinheads, only for the AK flamethrowers to clear the jam.  I took out the pumpkinheads, a good chunk of his heavies, and the battle engine thanks to some lucky die rolls and getting them there with Strakhov's feat, and my opponent wasn't able to kill Strakhov in retaliation.  Unfortunately, I'm not sure we got that much data for the CID because it was all over on the alpha.

Legion, I was tired of playing Strakhov over and over and decided to drop Harkevich.  This was a mistake.  I ate the alpha without feating, and lost my Demolisher.  Which was in the way of my Kodiak, preventing it from being pulled in to its doom from the Hellmouth. So I lost two of my heavies right off the back.  In short, I got pulled apart and chewed up, and only won because my opponent first clocked, then when we kept playing, committed his caster kind of foolishly.  Also, his attempted assassination run turned out to be fail because of Iron Sentinel making Hark not fall down and stay at 16/21 with a bunch of hit points and camping a couple.

Also, I got a game of Grind in.  I brought the bonus speed coach, a Marauder, Juggy, 2 Kodiaks, Berserker, Mad Dog, and a Diffuser.  Turn 1, the ball was kicked over in my direction and I responded in kind by taking the Marauder to it, sending it bouncing behind my opponent's line.  We then smooshed into each other until Turn 6, when I was able to finally get the ball in and my opponent was unable to score with one turn left.  We then hung out and painted.

I'm going to be running the new Jaws of the Wolf theme force tomorrow, because what else do you do when you have a theme force that just gives you free stuff for taking the stuff that's already in your list?

I want to say Legends? It was one of the last MK1 books.

Yup. It's in Legends; the fluff bit that kicks off the Cryx section.

The NQ came out and it was, disappointing.

I have to say I'm not surprised. I would have been very surprised if Goreshade actually got to shank Scyrah. One of the things I remember Doug Seacat saying with regards to one crazy scheme or another is that the people promulgating the crazy schemes tend not to know what's going to actually happen, and that if they succeeded it wouldn't necessarily be a good thing for them.

Do you happen to remember where the story is with Goreshade first meeting Nyssor? I'd love to check that out.

Spoiler: show
Basically Scyrah wakes to find the Eldrich doing their thing, she and Nyssor kill the Eldrich save Goreshade. Scryah recognizes good in his soul and uses that as the basis to resurrect him. She also saw the strands of fate that show Goreshade to be a savior to his people. And that is the story. The only cool thing was that it was from her perspective, so you get a pretty good look into what the Elven gods are actually like and how bad their condition is.

Goreshade the Bastard

- Goreshade joins Cryx as an agent of their forces, but is basically trying to find out if their powers of necromancy can help him solve the Iosian problem. At some point, in his research, he comes to the conclusion that if the Elven gods die, they can return to Urcaen, and take the role again of guiding elven souls.
-He finds the location of Nyssor within Khadoran territory. He finds a magical Menoth artifact to melt the ice around Nyssor so that he can then stab him to death.
-He gets to Nyssor, melts the ice, has a conversation with Nyssor himself, and grabs Nyssor's sword. Khador show up before he gets to finish it, though it is heavily implied that it probably wasn't possible for him to kill Nyssor. (FYI, if you can read this story, please do, it is probably my favorite piece of fluff in the game).

On the fluff side:

The rough events are as follows:

- Goreshade is the leader of house Vyre, and starts investigating the problem of Iosian children being born soulless. This is a problem for the elven race as, unlike humans, elven souls are basically recycled and reincarnated. The prevailing theory is that since there is no elven gods in Urcaen, then they are not there to properly protect the souls and guide them back to Caen. So Soulless in Ios is a huge deal on a lot of levels. Look at what happens to Skorne souls.
- Goreshade goes down some pretty dark paths in his secret studies of the problem, it is highly implied that he was killing Iosians for his experiments.
- The Iosian council constantly shuts down his efforts to find a solution, because of the whole morally reprehensible methods thing.
- A soulless child is born to his family, he takes said child, walks it over to the council, says if you won't do something I will, and bashes the babies skull in in front of them.
- Iosian civil war ensues between house Vyre and a few other houses. Fun side fact, the Hyperion was created at this time, and the use of its cannon was so deadly it was forever banned from being used in Iosian borders.
- Vyros is the one that mortally wounds Goreshade in the final battle but suffers some damage himself. This is why his face is all screwed up.
- Goreshade retreats and is able to save himself by becoming "Eldrich", a process an Iosian death cult founded that basically turns you into an undead vampire, kinda sorta.

Goreshade the Bastard

- Goreshade joins Cryx as an agent of their forces, but is basically trying to find out if their powers of necromancy can help him solve the Iosian problem. At some point, in his research, he comes to the conclusion that if the Elven gods die, they can return to Urcaen, and take the role again of guiding elven souls.

Khador show up before he gets to finish it, though it is heavily implied that it probably wasn't possible for him to kill Nyssor. (FYI, if you can read this story, please do, it is probably my favorite piece of fluff in the game).

Goreshade the Cursed

-Zerkova has Nyssor and starts studing him herself. Goreshade schemes for the majority of MK2 to get Nyssor.
-Ossyan is introduced at this time and has a time vision that basically lets them lead a retribution force to capture Nyssor. At this time he comes into conflict with Goreshade himself, getting wounded in the fight, but due to reinforecements by a now mounted Vyros, they were able to secure Nyssor.

Goreshade, Lord of Ruin

-Goreshade basically colludes with Zerkova to distract the Retribution forces taking Nyssor to Ios.
- The Retribution succeeds regardless and gets Nyssor back to Ios. Vyros takes all the credit, naturally.
- Skorne invade Ios.
- Goreshade uses the invasion by the Skorne to get into Ios.
- Last time we see Goreshade in MK2 is that he meets with a group of underground eldritch in the Iosian borders with a plan to get into the Fane of Scyrah, where just so happens both Scyrah and Nyssor are being held.


So far in MK3 all we have is that Skorne is winning, then a glowing figure takes to the battlefield and repels them. Following that we have a solicitation for a now alive Goreshade restored by Scyrah herself. So I am extremely looking forward to todays NQ. :)

Quick question.  The CoC color set mentions having Deflection.  Is that outdated, and it has decel now?
