General Information

Grail Quest IV will take place on February 18th, 2012 at Sci Fi Genre in Durham, NC. Start time for Round 1 will be 10 a.m. The address is 3215 Old Chapel Hill Rd. Durham, NC 27707, and the store phone number is (919) 490-7900. This will be a 2,500 point tournament. There will be three rounds, each lasting 2.5 hours, with a 1 hour break for shenanigans and/or food after the second round. Round scenarios will be themed to the tournament, but not extremely unusual. Entry fee is ten dollars.
After last year’s successful Highlander themed tournament, we’ve upped the ante and are diving into a Lethal Weapon theme this year.  That’s right, you’ll not only be facing your opponents, but will be challenged in scenarios featuring the Triad, South African gangsters, and of course, Gary Busey (all in a fun and balanced way).

Special Scoring System

Fighting battles isn’t always about preserving your troops carefully, sometimes it’s just about the sheer amount of damage you can cause even if you do get beat down in the process.  Therefore, at the end of each game, each player will report the amount of victory points he or she scored, regardless of win, loss, or draw.  Scenarios will give each player a chance at additional VP’s as well.  For the best overall prize, sportsmanship and painting scores will be added in, and will be combined worth around 25% of the overall score.

Fabulous Prizes!

Prizes will be awarded for Best Overall, 2nd, and 3rd Place, Best Generel, Best Painted Army, and Best Sportsman. I am beginning by contributing fifty dollars to the prize pool, and then adding in the entry fees.

So if you think you’re getting too old for this stuff, man up like Murtaw and get here for Grail Quest IV:  Lethal Flagon!


It is not necessary to preregister for Grail Quest, however, space is sometimes limited. If you would like to reserve a spot for the tournament, please email us at grailquestregister@gmail.com, or reply to this thread on the Sci Fi Genre forums.  http://z6.invisionfree.com/Scifi_Genre_Forums/index.php?showtopic=7162&st=0&#last

Q: Do my models have to be painted to play in the tournament?

A: No. Painting and Sportsmanship scores will contribute to your overall score and ranking, however.

Q: Will there be a composition score this year?

A: No. Note, however, that the Power Scroll is not allowed in lists at Grail Quest.

Q: Can you use proxies?

A: Yes, within reason. As a general rule, as long as you make it very clear to each opponent what represents what, and the model choices are not misleading (such as having the same type of model represent two different types of models) we are generally okay with proxies. The size of the model's base must be the same as the original model (since otherwise, it could change things like maneuverability and number of models in combat) but otherwise, feel free to use proxies as needed.

Q: What about conversions and/or non-GW miniatures?

A: Same rule as proxies; same base size, and make it clear what it is. Feel free to use Reaper miniatures or whatever else you find. We actually encourage this, since it fuels creativity and gives people something really neat to look at. As long as they don't give any sort of in-game advantage, conversions are definitely fine.

Q: Do you have to submit your list to the organizer at a point in time prior to the start of the tournament?

A: No. Please bring a list for inspection before the tournament. If you ever feel the need to check your opponent's list for any reason, do not hesistate to request it, and call over the TO if it would make you feel more comfortable. Any illegal list will be disqualified.

Q: What materials are you required to bring?

A: Your army book, your army list, your army (of course), dice, templates, and a measuring tape. Pens are readily available at the store and not required.

Q: Are there any list restrictions?

A: There are no special characters allowed.
