Adam Murton was the winner of the Scenario Competition early in 2017 with his ‘Bronvar’ campaign – a series of interlinked scenarios around the renegade domas of Captain Braccus Hajonne and its raids on ‘Bronvar’, a world dominated by the Boromites and recently absorbed into the Concord Shard ‘Blue 519’.
Tim has converted the mini-supplement into Antares 2 format and presented it as a black-and-white PDF. Whilst the campaign is ideal for a Boromites and haulers, as well as Freeborn or Concord T7-style transports, other factions can be used.
The BtGOA v1 post for this can be found here.
Some background on Bronvar can be found in Adam’s introduction to the Bronvar system and the Shakor Mining Guild.
The recently discovered planet of Bronvar and its profitable mines have been beset by raids from a renegade Freeborn domas, that of Braccus Hajonne. Thrown out of House Cadix after he refused to accept their new, financial strategy, Braccus was forced to try and make ends meet in other, more unsavoury ways. He has caused a nuisance to the Bronvar authorities and the Boromite Shakor Mining Guild by raiding their mines and carriers, so much so that the authorities have asked for help from their nearest Concord shard: Blue 519.
The campaign covers the moves by the Concord and Boromite mining guilds to capture the raiders. It is in five stages, each based around the movement of transports and goods on the surface and, in one case, a corral of transports protecting an ancient artefact! Each scenario leads to a final showdown – the capture of Braccus Hajonne himself in caverns in the Bronvar wilderness.
The scenarios are a mix of two and three player scenarios, but can be played with just two players. They are ideal for anyone with transports, and can be played with any faction, not just the Concord, Freeborn and Boromites used in the story.
