Just GMing my first BoB mission. They’re at the Western Front, and I’m rolling for missions. Here’s what I got:
Reward: +4 Morale, Penalty +1 Pressure Favor: Mercy
Recon, Exfiltration + Danger.
Reward +1 Intel -1 Time, Penalty 2 Deaths Favor: Holy
Recon, Troop Recon Reward: Asset or Troops, +1 Intel, Penalty +1 Pressure Favor: Holy
So, how to flesh these out?
- Assault: Well, my Broken are Render and Bligher, and they faced some of Render’s troops at the bridge. So let’s introduce Blighter. “Blighter has captured a bunch of refugees and is using them as test subjects and feedstock”.
Why would the Legion bother with this? Refugees are everywhere. What would convince them?
Recon: Well this is the classic “rescue the holy man”. Go back into Karlsburg and pull this guy out. Or maybe it’s two guys, because “2 deaths”? Have to think about that. I think this would be Blighter again.
Recon: This one confuses me a little. Asset or Troops, Holy, penalty is Pressure… up in the hills there’s a squad of troops that the Legion is familiar with; they’re good enough to be recruited. Maybe they’re holed up in a temple, under attack by the undead?
Thoughts and suggestions welcome!
