    we kick off the american mini-league with an interesting battle between all cavalry (Makhar) and no cavalry (saurians). RHworldbuilding is also known for having won the previous Essence triangular tournament, and is known as the player who has had the highest number of EW games in the entire galaxy. can experience be enough to offset the lack of horses?

  • Match: 3
    Division: England
    Factions: Dwarven Holds vs Highborn Elves

    the Dwarven Holds managed to get an extra point off of the Beast Herds, so now Lucky Sixes has to save the Proxy Table Channel from a combined defeat against Agoners. but he also wants to win big and get ahead of HyperG, before the last match is played. yet another reason to avoid the slow play penalty (for games longer than 1h), that Theokrit and LichKing suffered in the German division (represented in the table above by that minus in parentheses).

    if you want to know how the second english matchup unfolded, watch the 10' batrep below. for comments and cheers (and bets!), see you in the tournament discussion thread: Gamefinder & Tournaments

  • ...into a virtual gaming room, and they play a quick & dirty online tournament of the Ninth Age!

    welcome one and all to the Essence Meta-triangular League, where we play 1-hour games using the basic rules for T9A, and we stream them live on our Twitch page. and for those of you who dont have a whole hour of free hobby time, we also do quick 10-minutes battle reports on our YouTube channel, like the one below. but before we go into the first battle, a few words on the League itself:

    it's called Essence because we use the rules from Essence of War, the simplified ruleset for The Ninth Age. how else did you think we could play a live game in 1 hour or less?! : D each army has 1 character, 2 core units and 1 special unit. games last 4 turns, and the winner is the player with most non-fleeing regiments within 6" from the centre of the battlefield. it's an ideal format to introduce new people to the hobby, so please share these videos with your friends who might be interested in T9A ; )

    and it's called Meta-triangular because it's a triangular league of triangular leagues. a triangular league is one with three players (A, B, C), which play one match against each other (A-B, B-C, A-C). in the Qualification phase, we run a triangular league with three players from England, another with players from the USA, and a third with players from Germany. each of these leagues will produce a winner. these three winners will be invited to the Finals phase, which will give us the final winner.

    since the games happen across the world, we are using an online platform to play these games, notably Tabletop Simulator, where you can find plenty of beautiful digital, photoscanned and bidimensional models (take a look here). if you want to know more about the format, or to learn about the 9 factions and the 9 players involved, check our youtube page. but now it's time to let Remy and HyperG start the dances: may the best elf win!




    if you didnt like the video, give it a thumbs down : D otherwise, we appreciate likes, comments, shares, and most of all your feedback. we also have a dedicated Essence thread for events like these, so dont be shy and let us know your thoughts: Gamefinder & Tournaments

    cheers!

  • 42. a regular inquisitor or a special character?


    our Patrons are done voting, so here you find
    the characters shortlisted for next month's gladiator.
    go vote for your favourite character on Facebook!




    yes, yes. there's no Sunna entry in the EoS book. in case she wins the poll, we'll have to decide whether to let her represent a regular Prelate, or whether we should write some dedicated special rules for her. if you ask me... it's time to bring some special characters to the world of T9A! : )

  • 38. April update - download the new free Arena!


    dear all,
    i just uploaded the new version of the Arena to the TabletopSimulator workshop on Steam. it includes a new warrior: an Iron Orc Warlord with Omen and Destiny's, represented by a Shieldwolf miniature.

    it also gave me the chance to update the "Patreon shrine" - that niche in the Arena with a floating card containing all of your names. the update was triggered by some more good news: a friend from the T9A staff just joined our team! thank you so much for supporting us, man. much much appreciated.




    we will start the polls soon (for Aesthetes, Lanistae and Ambassadors) for next month's gladiator. but first we'll play a match tonight, on youtube, for the Arena World Cup. if you want to join us, just visit our youtube channel, subscribe, activate the notifications, and see you in a couple hours.
    cheers,
