Lord of the Night 2018

Post  Derek on Sun Mar 04, 2018 9:31 pm

Hi All,

As many of you know I will be holding a tourney at the Den in April. I just have to finalize the date.

It will be a Friday night and will be a short and fun event.

Many years ago I ran a lot of Lord of the Night tournaments at the Den. They were well attended and their purpose was to promote the game and get new players into the game and also have a format where established players could try out new armies. These events focused on game play and sportsmanship and from them sprang the concept of the Rob Gonda Sportsmanship Award. Rob was and is a great guy and was also so much fun to play against win or lose. Actually here in my games room I have two Sportsmanship Trophy's on the shelf that Josh won from Lord of the Night XVI & XVI Jan & Oct 2006. Josh was 12 and like I said we encouraged people of all ages to play.

Anyway the format will be 2000 pts and battles will be short.
The tourney will start at 7 (people need time to get home from work) and we should be done by 12.
3 battles with a $10 dollar entry fee and all the money will go back into prizes.
Sportsmanship and Battle points will be the deciding factors.
A printed out or hand written army list must be present.
Smaller battlefields while using the T9A rules. That being said I think we will have to cap the entry off at 12 or 14 simply due to space issues.


I will confirm the date soon and I will provide more info asap.

I dont want anyone to think that this event is not for us core gamers. But it is a good thing to bring some newbies into the game. No one will be bumped for any new gamers.
So if you know anyone who is interested in the game let them know and hopefully they will take the plunge.

Lord of the Night tournaments were how I got into this group so you have Derek to thank (or blame) for that I guess. I hope these become a regular occurrence again as they were always loads of fun.

Pumped to experience these again! Same story as Nathan, Lord of the Night was my first forray into the Warhammer world, always had a blast. Getting next to no sleep will be a small price to pay to play in these again.

Hey All,


Lord of the Night 2018 will be held at the Den on Friday April 20th.

Dice will roll at 7pm.

It will be 2000 pts using the 9th Age Warbands Rules:

-must have a min 3 units not including characters
-Table size will be 36" x 48"
-we will play official 9th Age scenarios
-General can be any character that does not have the "not a leader" special rule.

The tourney will be scored on Battle Points and Sportsmanship
-3 Games
-You must have a hard ***Paper Copy*** of your Army List on Hand for the event.
-Planning for 1.5 hrs per battle max - I would think that many battles might be quicker than that.
-$10 dollar entry fee - all monies will go back into prizes.
-Max 16 players

This event if designed to encourage new players to dip their feet into the game and to get those that don't play that often to come out and have some fun. Some small quick battles, with a fun competitive edge with a bunch of people that enjoy the hobby. This is a great time for experienced players to try out a new army and see what it can do.

If you have any questions please let me know.

The Saturday is my wife's birthday so I probably won't be available for gaming Saturday but I'm signing up for the Friday night tournament. I'll bring Dread Elves.

I'm glad you guys seem excited about the event.

So far then:

1 - Nathan R Dread Elves
2 - Carson Goblins
3 - Dom Vampire Covenant
4 - Theresa Saurian Ancients
5 - Josh Empire
6 - Alberto Vampire Covenant

I will keep a running tally of players as we have limited space (16 max - which is a good size) and I have already bought some stuff to give away and will be getting some more stuff...door prizes and trophies Very Happy

If this event fills up and there are new players wanting a spot I can step out and help Derek with the tournament. I can also provide armies if anyone wants to try the game but doesnít have an army.

I have Dwarfs, Kingdom of Equitaine, Empire, and all 3 elves. Enough for 2-3 armies of each at 2000 points.

So Far So Good:

1 - Nathan R † †Dread Elves
2 - Carson † † † Goblins
3 - Dom † † † † † Vampire Covenant
4 - Theresa † † †Saurian Ancients
5 - Josh † † † † † Empire of Sonnstahl
6 - Alberto † † † Vampire Covenant
7 - Andre † † † † Orcs/Ogres/Goblins??
8 - Peter † † † † †Warriors of the Dark Gods
9 - Dwayne Empire of Sonnstahl

I'm hoping and expecting Pat, Johnny, Geoff, Sean (I think that was his name - sorry dude) and our current League Champ Nathan. Maybe some Moose Jaw guys if the star align.
Then I am hoping for at least one more new player - it can happen.
Put the next out there guys for friends that are thinking about playing.


Things look good.

I spoke with Jonny and he is very interested in bringing his Saurians out to play. He said he should be able to make it so I think it's safe to put him down for attendance. I'm sure we'll hear from Pat soon too.
