The Trolls of Moedlhafen

Here's a 7 Seas (7th Voyage) game with Solomon Kane pitted against John Dee and his Marsh Trolls. For the trolls, we used the stats for the Guardian Beast with Aquatic and Regeneration powers.

This is the best spell ever, and so instead of fighting over it, we decided to share it. It's been key in several games now, so we might just end up banning it. We already have a gentleman's agreement not to cast it on the Star.

John Dee has summoned the marsh trolls to Moedlhafen for some unfathomably evil reason...

...and so Solomon Kane and his band of mercenaries are determined to capture, or kill, Dee and put an end to the fishy menace.

 As Kane's boat lands, three of the trolls slip from the depths to ambush them.

The captain of the mercenaries is the first to fall.

One of the trolls attacks Kane, wounding him.

It is looking grim for the surrounded mercenaries when N'Longa utters the Word of Command and convinces one of the trolls to change sides...

...and it immediately charges its erstwhile best mate.

Kane and John Silent manage to slay the other troll and so their path to Dee is clear.

Another troll, though, emerges from the graveyard and attacks Kane. Killing him.

N'Longa uses his magic, however, and manages to bring Kane back to life.

John Silent and Dee are left to face off in the alley.

Dee casts the Word of Command on Silent. But Silent is strong enough to resist the necromancer.

Though the commanded marsh troll suddenly finds its wits again, it's too late for Dee's side. It is attacked in the rear by a couple of the mercenaries...

...and the other troll is seen off, too.

This leaves Dee alone to face Kane and Silent. And he is soon dispatched.

A very convincing victory for Kane and his men.


  1. That's a great AAR what system are you using? That was a close call for Kane. I really love your Mordheim board its fantastic!

    1. Thanks. It's based on the 7th Voyage rules by Crooked Dice. These are designed for Sinbad, Jason and other Harryhausen cinematic fights. But we're play-testing a supplement (7 Seas) designed for later, black powder settings like Dumas, pirate and other swashbuckling style movies.

  2. Awesome report and really nice pictures of your town and miniatures. I'm currently building my own cityport from scratch and your town is giving me loads of ideas.
    I also love trolls and would like to have them invading the town at some stage - always good fun to have those big guys menacing civilians.

    On a different note, I nominated your blog with a Liebster award. :)

    Take care,
