036 - NEO Teams & Narrative Signals - Campaign Phase
Welcome to the Mortal Realms, an Age of Sigmar Podcast. Grab your hammer so we can clear a path through the Chaos and forge our own narratives in the Age of Sigmar. Your allies through the Realm Gate this episode are Brian and Eric
In this episode, we are discussing Narrative signals, elements of an event that can effectively communicate to your attendees the kind of narrative event you are running and what level of play to expect. After that we’ll be talking about working with a team to share the burden and joy of running a narrative event.

In this episode, we are discussing Realmslayer by David Guymer. It was only a matter of time before Gotrek burst free from those Old World stories straight into the Mortal Realms. Can these infinite landscapes filled with limitless enemies possibly hope to contain him? Let’s find out.
In this episode, we are discussing the Warcry anthology, with stories by a variety of Black Library authors. Contained within are tales of warbands, of warriors, of people, who heard their own call, and the aftermath of what they decided to do about it.
In this episode, we are discussing Gloomspite by Andy Clark. Listener, stop for a moment and imagine the town you live in. Think of the places you know, and the people that live there. Sure, it’s got it’s problems, but all in all it’s a pretty nice place, right? Now imagine that same city under siege by a hidden force of malicious goblins intent on destroying everything you hold dear. Would those in charge be able to keep you safe? Would you survive?
In this episode we cover the lore of Forbidden Power, GW’s latest advancement of the story of the Soul Wars. The Stormvaults have been thrown wide open, and the Mortal Realms are hosting their very own version of Storage Wars. Let’s see what they find.
In this episode we cover the lore of the Hedonites of Slaanesh Battletome. Get ready to hear a whole lotta narcissism, overindulgence, depravity, and lewdness. And then if we have time after all that, we’ll talk about Slaanesh!
In this episode, we are discussing Scourge of Fate by Robbie MacNiven. Did you think the Varanguard, Archaon’s elite shock troops, just sprung from the ground fully formed? Born with a Daemon blade in their hand? No! It takes time, it takes effort. It honestly takes a lot of killing. And in this book, we see just what it takes to reach that unholy order - and you thought your corporate ladder was cutthroat.
In this episode, we are discussing Hamilcar: Champion of the Gods by David Guymer. At long last, the Bear-Eater has his own novel - in which he squares off against enemies and allies alike, through challenges no Stormcast has ever faced. But worry not, because when hope is lost and evil is abound, who will be victorious?
In this episode, we are discussing Realms at War events, or RAW, the road leading up to the 4th Annual RAW event, what allowed these 4 NEOs to take their first leap into hosting one of the most heralded narrative AoS events on the planet, and how they continue to innovate and keep us guessing on what they’re doing next.
In this episode we cover the lore of the Skaven Battletome. Get ready to hear a whole lotta nefarious ambition, never-ending paranoia, near-constant betrayal, and using extra words when just 1 would suffice. And then if we have time we’ll talk about them rats!
In this episode, we are discussing the narrative event being held at Adepticon for the second year, that’s the Gibbering Dome and with us is the NEO responsible, Paul Wagner. We’ll also be discussing AoS skirmish, it’s role as a playstyle in the game, the releases, and a BONUS Scrying Phase as we dip our toes into Warcry speculation.
