The Progressive Scenarios Rules

Post by Darksatin »

The Progressive Scenarios Rules are an improvement of the Hamburger Scenarios Rules. Now, the 3 difficulty levels exist for each scenario (easy, medium, difficult). The conditions for success are (in principle) progressive. We will "officially" present this new version of the rules at Lure 2022 (Saturday tournament). If you have a deck ready for the old rules version, don't worry, you just need to change a few cards to fit the new version.

The Progressive Scenarios Rules June 2022

The Scenario Tournament format has been created by the players of the Council of Pelargir group, from Hamburg, Germany. They have been playing it for years in a league system, with a decreasing point system for the players re-using the same deck.

The French community has played the Scenario Tournament format in single event tournaments, and has elaborated new rules, with a different tournament point system. These progressive scenarios rules are an improvement, with 3 success levels for each scenario.

I : THE RULES

I.1 General:
With the following annotations normal tournament rules apply:
• We play 2-deck games, one game lasts 80 minutes (the player who didn't start finishes his turn or gets a final turn). But if The One Ring is destroyed (hero success), the game ends immediately. Nevertheless, the other player must make his corruption checks (to verify the scenario conditions at the end of the game).
• You need 25 Marshalling Points to call the council. (Please check the normal tournament rules if you are not familiar with them!)
• You can have a 30 card sideboard deck.
• You may play only Wizard scenarios (i.e. normal Wizard decks).

I.2 Banned Cards:
You may not include the following cards in any of your decks :
• Long Winter
• Storms of Ossë
• Foul Fumes
(i.e. no hazard that may tap a site may be included!)

I.3 German Promos cards:
German Promos cards are tournament legal (in their original version, not the DC ones).

I.4 Rule Reminders:
* Neither so Ancient Neither so Potent gives items MP. (COE Erratum 32)

* Stored cards are not considered to be in play, except for uniqueness. (CRF)
For example, in The Rohirrim scenario (#11) Red Arrow and Great Shield of Rohan must be borne by characters and can not be stored to succeed the scenario.

I.5 Special rules:
* You may attempt to influence resources (items, allies) or characters controlled by a Wizard. For items influence attempts, a Wizard has a mind of 10.
* Any character may be brought into play under general or direct influence at his home site (even if your Wizard is in play but not at the site), if you have another character present at that site. (Dreamcard rule)
* Characters and allies at a Haven heal from wounded to untapped during the untap phase. Characters and unique allies at their home site heal from wounded to untapped during the untap phase. (from a Dreamcard rule)

I.6 Optional rules: (it is up to the players to decide if these rules are used or not in the tournament)
* For the first round (only), you cannot play against a player with the same scenario (each player indicates his scenario on his tournament sheet).

* Before each game, each player makes a 2 dice-roll. The player with the highest roll can choose his Wizard (so, he put 3 copies of his Avatar into his deck, showing them to his opponent) or he can choose to play first (or not), but before the character draft. If necessary, the other player must choose another Wizard (he discards the copies of the same Avatar).

If the player with the highest roll has chosen a Wizard, the other player can choose to play first (or not).

If the player with the highest roll has not chosen a Wizard, the other player must do it (or declare that he plays without a Wizard). If necessary, the other player must choose another Wizard (he discards the copies of the same Avatar). (from a Belgian variant)

If this optional rule is in effect, the following procedure is used for the "specific" avatar cards : if a player does not play with his expected avatar, he can exchange up to 3 "specific" avatar cards for the same number of "specific" cards of his new avatar (he shows these cards to his opponent). Replacements cards must take place at the same place: deck or sideboard.

The "specific" avatar cards:
Alatar: The Hunt
Gandalf: Hobbit-lore, Narya
Pallando: Eyes of Mandos
Radagast: Herb-lore
Saruman: First of the Order

I.7 Alignment:
You are only allowed to play a Wizard deck. Ringwraith decks, Fallen-Wizard decks and Balrogs decks are not allowed.

I.8 Mulligan: If you have no resource in your starting hand that normally gives any MP(s), you can show your hand to your opponent, and then shuffle these starting hand into your play deck and draw a new starting hand. You can only do this once.

I.9 Tournament formula:

For 4 or 5 players : it is a Round-robin tournament. Each player play once against each other player.

For 6 players or more : it is a Swiss System tournament. The number of rounds is dictated by the number of participants :
6 - 8 players : 3 rounds
9 - 16 players : 4 rounds
17 + players : 5 rounds
For the first round only, players are paired off randomly. For each round after the first round, each player is paired off with another player with the same (or the closest) total of tournament points. The same players can not play each other more than once.

I.10 Scoring
The most important difference to a regular tournament is that you do not only get tournament points for marshalling points, but also for fulfilling the requirements of a certain scenario. You must choose a scenario among the list in II (Wizard scenarios)

Scenario-Points :
• 7 TPs for a difficult scenario
• 5 TPs for a medium-hard scenario
• 3 TPs for an easy scenario

You can win several different scenarios with one same deck (there are some possible scenarios). In that case, you get always 7 tournament points.

Malus Points:
If both opponents succeeds a scenario : - 1 TP for each player


MP-Rating-Points:
If a player has at least two times the number of MPs of his opponent, or destroy The One Ring, it is a decisive victory. Otherwise, it is a marginal victory.
• decisive victory : 4 TPs
• marginal victory : 3 TPs
• tie : 2 TPs
• marginal defeat : 1 TP
• decisive defeat : 0 TP
• a bye : 6 TPs for the first round, 5TPs for the second round, 4TPs for the third round, 3TPs for the fourth round, 2 TPs for a fifth round.
You have a bye if you are present at the tournament room, ready to play, but no opponent is available. Only one player per round can benefit from a bye. A player can only get one bye in a tournament.
• drop : 0 TP

Scenario-Points, Malus Points and MP-Rating-Points are added up for the total points of a game.

1.11 Tournament Point Ties :
If several players have the same number of TPs at the end of the tournament, the following procedure is established :

1) Head-to-Head results. Tally the number of losses of each tied player from all games played with any other tied players. The player with the fewest total head-to-head wins the tie-breaker. You «lose» a game if you have fewer Tournament Points (Scenario Points + Marshalling Points) than your opponent.

2) The greater number of Scenarios fulfilled (against all players).For each remaining tied players, the player with the greatest number of difficult scenarios fulfilled wins the tie-breaker. Then, the player with the greatest number of medium scenarios. Then, the player with the greatest number of easy scenarios.

3) The greatest sum of opponent's scores. For each remaining tied players, add up all of their opponent's Tournament Point totals. The player with the highest sum wins the tie-breaker.


II: THE WIZARD SCENARIOS

Great work!
Of course we have to test it, but the basic structure ist there.
After around 2 years thinking about it, now we can play it like this.

Also you are right, our "old" decks need just little changes to fit for this progrssive rules.
Now you can win a scenario much easilier but don't know before which difficult level you will reach :)

Many thanks for it to Darksatin.

See you @ Lure 2022

* Before each game, each player makes a 2 dice-roll. The player with the highest roll can choose his Wizard (so, he put 3 copies of his Avatar into his deck, showing them to his opponent) or he can choose to play first (or not), but before the character draft. If necessary, the other player must choose another Wizard (he discards the copies of the same Avatar).

If the player with the highest roll has chosen a Wizard, the other player can choose to play first (or not).

If the player with the highest roll has not chosen a Wizard, the other player must do it (or declare that he plays without a Wizard). If necessary, the other player must choose another Wizard (he discards the copies of the same Avatar).

Difficult: King under the Mountain is in play. The Arkenstone and Returned Exiles are in play. A company with Bilbo has successfully played an item, an ally or a faction at The Lonely Mountain, while one of its characters is King Under The Mountain. Bilbo is at Bag-end and is wearing The Mithril-Coat.
Fun changes to this scenario and makes it seem more "progressive."

By the way, is this the latest update to the rules? People are talking about playing the scenarios online.
