Currently in the planning stage for our group's next Apocalypse game. For this, we're going ahead with the concept of satellite boards. By that I mean we have one 8x6 table with some of the larger gun emplacements (Primus Redoubt, Macro Cannons, etc) which begin the game as being inactive. Nearby are two 4x4 satellite boards. One is a Zone Mortalis board and there will be a Castellum Stronghold as the exits on the main and other satellite board. The ZM and other Satellite board will have objectives which need to be controlled in order to fire the main emplacement weapons. We will also allow flight between the two overland boards and the ZM board will run at double time.
To those who have ran multiple boards before in Apocalypse;
- Does this sound feasible?
- Would a general be realistically able to coordinate forces on two or more boards?
- Should we allow further interaction between the boards?
- What are the general pitfalls for such a venture?
Thanks in advance.
