Corvus Cluster Narratives

Tournament games are great. But there’s nothing like a good narrative battle—a swashbuckling,
movie-like adventure with heroes, villains, and an objective that involves more than gathering
victory points.​

 

So, if you find yourself with some free time at the convention—or you’re looking for something
new and unique to do—the Corvus Cluster is here for you.

Corvus Cluster Narratives

How about a good skirmish game—a swashbuckling adventure—played on a highly detailed, diorama-quality table?

That’s what we try to do at the Corvus Cluster.

This year, we’re going to run a variety of games in different periods and genres. We’ll fight on the moon in 1974, chase Jack the Ripper in Victorian England, visit the Old World of Warhammer, and return to the Grimdark of the 41st Millennium.

We’re also going to have two tables:

A Moon Base: This table will feature both a fully scenicked surface of the moon, complete with a surface base, and a detailed interior of the base for close-in fighting.

Spooky Church and Graveyard: Also fully scenicked, this table will be the setting for fighting vampires, serial killers, and other horrors. Naturally, we’ll have creepy crypts and burial vaults below ground.

Both tables will boast a variety of special effects, from bright computer lights to flickering torches to a foggy mist over the graveyard.

Best of all, the games will be designed to challenge your tactical abilities in exciting, Hollywood-style settings. You’re going to have to think hard about how to win.

And you don’t need to bring miniatures, dice, or rules. Everything is provided.

You also can relax on the rules. We’ll keep them simple and easy to play.

For those who fight our 40K battles, your stories will be enshrined as a “historical event” on the Corvus Cluster website: www.thecorvuscluster.com

So, if you find yourself with some free time at the convention—or you’re looking for something new and unique to do—the Corvus Cluster is here for you.

Professor Abraham Van Helsing has convinced Scotland Yard Inspector Bertram Drake to join him in exploring the old Norman Church and graveyard outside the village.
