Subject:  Re: Attack on the Astroid base
Well,  my playtest keeps getting postponed:(  Now it's supposed to go this
Friday. I've included the scenario below,  feel free to comment/predict)
Note:the scro are trying out Toby's Ballista Boxes:)

Here's the force structure for the Lytherian Astroid base (Imperial Elven Navy):
100 IEN Marines (F2) with Chain,  Longbow,  Longsword
100 IEN Marines (F2) with Chain,  Longsword, Spear
60 Elven Militia (F1) Leather,  Longbow
3 light ballistae
2 medium Ballistae
1 Heavy Catapult
1 Standard Dragonfly(Light Catapult,  Minor helm) with full crew (10 IEN eF2)
2 Crewed Flitters (Tactical helm) Each pilot has a Wand of Lightening Bolts
(10 charges)
Officers
Elven Captain F/M 7/7
3 Lts Elven F/M 5/5
Dragonfly Captain Elven F/M 6/6
DragonFly Helmsman Elven Pr 6
2 Flitter Pilots Elven F/M 3/3

The base is unwalled,  but does have a pair of fortified towers.  Also all
buildings are made of stone.  The Ballistae and Catapult have good,  360'
fire arcs.


Now,  the attackers:  The Gamaro Revenge Fleet(In my campaign my players
destroyed the Gamaro base from "Goblin's revenge" about a year ago by
release the witchlight Marauder.  Those PCs have mostly retired.  This is
what remains of the Scro Fleet which was based there.)

Scorpionship

Crew:50 Scro Warriors
Officers: 1 Captain (F6), 1 XO (F5), 2 Warpriests(M/P 5/5)
Deathhelm w/5th level prisoner

The Scorpion carries 3 Goblin Blades in its Cargo space.
3 Goblin Blades (w/Greek Fire Projector) Each helmed by a Furnace helm (the
Scro have a small supply of scrolls with Light spells which they use for
fuel)
Crew 2 scro warriors each.


3 Galleons
armed w/1 Light Ballista and 2 medium ballista
Crew:40 orcs
Officers: Captain (orc F5)  2 Shamans (orc Pr4)(1 is helmsman)
Minor Helm
1 galleon has been outfitted with 2 sets of "ballista boxes" for ground attack.

Mantis Ship
armed w/grappling rams,  2 medium ballistae,  1 heavy catapult
Crew:70 Scro Warriors
Officers: Admiral (M/P 7/7),  Captain (F6), XO (F5) 5 Warpriests (M/P 5/5)
death helm




"We look on the same stars,  the sky is common,  the same world surrounds
us.  What difference does it make by what pains each seeks the truth?  We
can not attain to so great a secret by one road..."
Symmachus,  "Memorial on the Occasion of the Removal of the Altar of
Victory from the Senate House" (392 AD)
