Description of Games

Battletech: Last Stand on Jaguar Prime

On March 5th 3060, the inner Sphere forces landed on the Smoke Jaguar homeworld of Huntress with one goal, eliminate the warmaking capability of the Smoke Jaguars.

By March 19th Khan Lilcoln Osis had issued the clan's order, eradicate all inner sphere forces and retake the planet.

With no reinforcements coming both sides are down to a bloody chaotic battle, who will live to fight again, and who will fade into memory?

Castles and Crusades

Castles & Crusades is a role-playing game published by Troll Lord Games in 2004. It was conceived as a reimagining of classic Dungeons & Dragons using streamlined mechanics from third edition Dungeons & Dragons. The game uses many of the d20 System mechanics, but eliminates skills and feats and expands the number of character classes to 13. Another feature is the reversion of some rules to the original versions seen in original Dungeons & Dragons (often referred to as "OD&D") or first edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (AD&D).

Descent

Descent: Journeys in the Dark is a 2 to 5 player high fantasy Dungeon crawling board game published by Fantasy Flight Games in 2005. Descent was designed and produced by Kevin Wilson. The game is not related to the video game Descent, but rather is based on an improved version of the mechanics of FFG's licensed Doom: The Boardgame. In Descent, players take the roles of adventurers who delve into underground complexes in search of treasure (the so-called "dungeon crawl"). One player takes the role of the Overlord, who controls the enemies and plays cards to hinder the hero players. Descent differs from other games in the genre in that the Overlord player's goal is to win by exhausting the other players of victory points, rather than merely to facilitate play. The Overlord's resources are limited by the rules of the game, which require him to hoard and expend "threat" points, which are generated in response to the hero players' actions, in order to hamper the other players and to bring out additional monsters to defeat them. This mechanism is very much reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings when playing with the Sauron optional expansion.
