Privateer Press has just announced Scars of Caen Season One: Charsaug. Scars of Caen is the Privateer Press 2014 League for Warmachine and Hordes. The league is comprised of four seasons that are each consisted of four weeks. This is similar to the Journeyman League, but it’s quite a bit longer. The league is a great idea for eight or more players who meet regularly at a local game store for games of Warmachine and Hordes.
Scars of Caen will offer a casual format where players battle against each other while trying to stake a victory for their chosen global team. Both novice and experienced players alike can come together for fun on the battlefield. This year-long adventure explores the consequences of the previous 2013 league, Machinations. Many of the vital ley lines within western Immoren have been damaged by the uprising of the Convergence of Cyriss. These rivers of power would normally heal themselves, but with the increased activity of the dragons has spread blight across the region, stunting the restoration process.
During each season, players will travel to a blighted ley line and choose which of the two global teams they will support: either the Purists, seeking to eradicate the blight and restore balance to Immoren, or the Opportunists, seeking to profit from the blighted land. Victories will move a player closer to becoming his team’s local venue champion and assist other players on the same team to unlock all sorts of goodies throughout the year.
Charsaug is the first season played in the Scars of Caen. Both the rules for Scars of Caen and Charsaug are available now for download on the Privateer Press site. Charsaug takes place on a charred estate on the verge of becoming a corrupted wasteland from the lingering dragon Charsaug. Players will choose from different scenarios to play and earn points for their global team. Players can also use special models for this season, and their stat cards are also found on the Privateer Press page. This is definitely an exciting event.
