Turn 3 Report Roundup with Nuno M

Another round of hot sizzling reports!

And because 350 is a larger number than 349, we broke another record!!!

Players’ creativity just keeps surprising us, and we’re loving to see their new inventive ways to create reports.
On top of all the beautiful models, art, writing and storytelling, this time we also had sea shanties and audiodrama, piano covers and watercolours… and a live Tabletop Simulator set of tournament duels between Anvil of Apotheosis characters, completely run by players!

And in particular, seeing how you explored the Winter Ball storyline with all these trigger-happy, aggressive or just wacky mercs was just a delight to see!

You folks are the heroes of this story, and we hope you are all having the bestest time.

Don’t let the ups and downs of the story get to you: there are still 2 turns to come, and all sorts of revenge, redemption and backstabbing are wide open for all of you. 

NO COALITION IS EVER “DOWN” FOR LONG IN ANIMOSITY! True story.

— 

We have selected a few reports here to share with you all, but we encourage you to take a look at our Twitter feed to find more featured reports, and to follow your fellow players and artists on social media.
Honestly, there are SO many more cool reports. Go look.

The more people we connect, the more cool things we can do together in the months/years to come!
Psst, did you know a few NEOs (Narrative Event Organizers) in the Animosity server will be running the Animosity Weekender 2021 Narrative Event at the SoCal Open in October? 😉 Get your tickets!

As we careen like an out-of-control steamtrain led by fire ogors towards the final and intense chapters of AnimosityIII – The Prime Dominion, here are a few ways you can help us process our reports quicker:

  • When saving an Arts&Crafts or Hobby Report, separate images are preferable than images within a .doc file;
  • When putting together a Storytelling Report, try to put them all in a .doc file (or gdrive equivalent) or PDF, instead of separate image files. We also have been having a few issues copy-pasting from Imgur this year (which didn’t use to happen before). Posts on a blog or slide presentations are still fine.
  • Please be aware if your report somehow contains… something we believe you intend to keep secret from other coalitions, we will have to withhold it from highlights/features until the Unfolding Narrative is released 😉 . You’re too sharp, Animosity hive-mind.

Otherwise, you are all being awesome in giving us context and pointers with your Report Summaries and character and army names, it’s been super useful. Please keep doing it: Team Animosity really appreciates.

Now, on to some cool stuff!
