Scoring for Darklands: Distant Hoofbeats will focus on kindred progress rather than tracking the results of individual players. Each game result turned in will provide the following score benefits to the kindreds played.
The outcome of the game will benefit a kindred in the following ways:
Victory: 5 points Defeat: 2 points Stalemate: 3 points
Each game will also have up to three scenario points that may be awarded to the kindred:
Since we want to reward players for both turning in their score sheet, if both players turn in their score, each kindred will gain a tenth of a pointScenario points: 0-3 points
Finally, we want to reward players for playing the game as a campaign! Therefore, players will gain an additional bonus for playing more than one game of the campaign against the same opponent.Both players turned in scores: 0.1 points
Two games against the same opponent/army: 1 point Three games against the same opponent/army: 2 points Four games against the same opponent/army: 3 points Five games against the same opponent/army: 5 points
What's the point to the points?
Well, the kindred that "wins" the campaign (by having the most points at the end) will be one of the first stretch goals unlocked for the Darklands Kickstarter this summer!
How can I participate?
Just come back to this site while the campaign is ongoing, and there will be a page for you to use to log your results. It's that simple!
