Join three of Empire’s Battle and Skirmish team and one player who helps organise a national Elite Monster Unit in a live Q&A session on PD’s Twitch channel this Friday at 8:30pm. They’ll be taking your questions about all things to do with Battle and Skirmishes at Empire.
You can either post your question in advance in this thread or post it in the chat channel during the chat.
Tom’s focus as a plot writer at Empire mainly concerns the combat encounters we deliver - skirmishes and battles - as part of the main campaign. He also supports other writers with delivering their own combat encounters and helps coordinate the Skirmish Team as they portray the different orc nations and myriad monsters faced by the player characters. During the Friday Muster of the Military Council Tom can be found playing Prognosticator Atraxes of the Civil Service.
Andy leads Empire’s NPC Skirmish Team (The Hundred) in bringing war against the Empire in the two large battles and numerous skirmishes each event. This role involves briefing the Hundred, assigning roles, discussing battle plans and at times acting as an in-character leader of orc forces on the field. Andy plays a barbarian orc most of the event, but occasionally enters the field as Will of Overton, one of the Civil Service’s war scouts.
David’s main role on the field is to support characters as a member of the Civil Service’s war scouts, providing advice and tactical know-how before the heroes of Anvil venture out on battles and skirmishes. This role is to ensure that players understand the situation they will encounter, how to complete the missions they are taking on, and ensuring that preparations have been made before they leave. For most of the event David can be found in-character near the Sentinel Gate as Orn Eidrmutr, a war scout of the Civil Service.
Daisy is an Empire player, monster kit enthusiast and coordinates the Brass Coast elite monster unit (EMU). Along with Oliver Rose and Marcos Balseiro she organises the members of the EMU, sorts out roles, tries to drag everyone up out of bed for monstering, and then takes on the role of IC commander when the unit takes the field as the Druj. The rest of the time, she is Iñez i Azul-Mar i Erigo, Comandante of the Bloodgold Jackals, and making larp kit as The Questing Beast.
