I won an Iron Gauntlet…..Lets talk about Judgement!

Posted by on 9:23 pm

I recently took a trip to Cancon to play a couple of tournaments for Warmachine and had a pretty good run with the new tharn theme force and Una28. This isn’t an article about that. While we were at Cancon, the kickstarter for a new game launched: Judgement. I’ve been involved in the play test group for this game and I really like it, it’s got a great depth and it’s built beautifully for competitive play.1 I feel like it’s pretty hard for a game to convey those strengths during a kickstarter, so I thought I might try something. What I’ve written here is basically a competitive gameplay article for Judgement, as an example of the sorts of content I’d expect to see crop up as this game really takes off4. There’s a huge amount of tactical depth to each character and a bunch of complicating factors based on maps and warband composition, but I thought I’d have a go at a tactica for one specific character as an example. BEFORE YOU READ THIS, IF YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF JUDGEMENT BEFORE, THEN I SUGGEST YOU HAVE A LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING TO GET A BROAD IDEA OF THE GAME BEFOREHAND! Turns out I cant make links work. I have no idea why, I’ve just spent a very frustrating fifteen minutes trying and my wife is angry…so yeah. This article is written to be an example of a more advanced tactics piece, it will probably make little sense if you’ve never read the rules. You can check out the game rules at kickstarter (Google kickstarter judgement) Voracious gamer has a three article set up on learning judgement: https://voraciousgamer.wordpress.com/2017/02/06/learnin-judgement-part-1-hero-stats-and-effigies/ https://voraciousgamer.wordpress.com/2017/02/08/learnin-judgement-part-2-monsters-shrines-souls-and-magic/ https://voraciousgamer.wordpress.com/2017/02/09/learnin-judgement-part-3-game-setup-turn-structure-and-mechanics/ Cassio is the character I decided to write about this time around2, not for any particularly good reason, though he was one of the meta-influencing characters in our playtest group, going from being never selected, to suddenly appearing in every warband, then back to a more normal distribution once we all worked out options for dealing with him. This article requires some knowledge of the game rules, but I’m not sure how much you really need to get the general gist and some of the value. I just wanted to give people a chance to see the game written about in a non-kickstarter fashion. The cards look pretty dense when viewed like this, they print nicely into a pretty standard card-size, fits in a protector as normal and you can write on them as most of us are used to with cards in Warmachine. Cassio has an above normal (for a human) Agility score, paired with an average melee attack and no alternate attacks (no magic or ranged weapon). He dishes out a slightly below par amount of damage for an aggressor, 2/3/4 is ok, but certainly not in the same range as Zhonjya or Rakkir. Cassio is identified as an aggressor, but in reality he functions as somewhere between aggressor and defender. This is because of his unusually high Agility score. Typically dwarves and minotaurs are agility 3, humans are 4 and elves are 5. Cassio is a martial artist with great personal balance which is reflected in his higher Agility and his special rule concerning knockdown. Cassio also brings great utility since his starting fate ability “Dragon Kick”...
