Worldwide Warmaster Campaign
« on: August 07, 2010, 10:16:37 PM »
Hello,

With so many players around here sharing the same interest in a great game I would find it a challenging project to connect us all even a little bit more by playing a Worldwide Warmaster Campaign. I already managed two campaigns based upon the Mighty Empires rules at my gaming club which worked quite well. So why not do that at a more global level?

I'm planning to let four opposing empires fight for dominance over an unknown area.

The basic idea is that not individual players may register for the campaign but whole regions. Each region (typically the club, town or area you meet at for your games) has to consist of at least four Warmaster players each representing another empire (extra players may take the part of native tribes or help out some empires).

Every empire will need a Governour responsible for giving ME orders, building, buying extra troops and encouraging his players to fight battles (an extra interest in overall strategies and an intention to study the Mighty Empires rules are important for that position - rules will be provided).

I also would like this to be a living campaign with fluff stories, battle reports and so on. To support that every empire will have a Chronicler. Although it helps for a Chronicler to have a talent and interest in writing he does not need to do all the work alone but would be responsible for encouraging the creative side in all the players of his empire. And the Chronicler will help out his Governour when necessary.

I already did some preparations but before I start I just wanted to ask around here who would be interested to be part of such a campaign (maybe as Governour or Chronicler too?)? And as I'm assuming that behind every member here there are some other Warmaster players at home - do you think you would get together enough players for a playing region?

Curious about your interest and questions,
Gerald

That sounds fun, sadly my Warmaster group numbers exactly two so I won't be able to take part. I look forward to reading about it when it starts though.

I'd also thought about putting a campaign up on the forum but running on rather different lines. Essentially I was planning to run the Storm of Chaos campaign using the Node-campaign rules from the Lustria supplement. In fact, I'm still planning that. Hopefully when your campaign finishes I'll be ready!

Good luck with the campaign planning, it sounds like it'll be great fun to see on here.  ;D

Don't know if we have enough players... with a lot of luck will be three (if the others players shows interest and compromise).

By the way the idea is superb

Ok, thought the whole thing over and I think it is possible to announce regions with at least two players (although it is still desirable to get together at least four).

So everyone who likes to play Warmaster and has at least another Warmaster player at his place and wants to take part in this global project: register!

Send a mail to spiritusxmachina@gmail.com with the following informations:

Name
Nickname (this forum)
Region (have in mind that at least 2 players need to state the same Region name - four or more would be even better. Players of one region should be able to meet each other easily to play - so don't make your cousin that's living 10.000 miles away to state the same region)
Playable WM Armies (if you have more than one, rank your favourites first. Don't state armies you don't want to play)
Mail address

I'll give you 10 days time from now on, so Deadline is the 17th August.

Here some extra information beforehand:
-) It is not necessary for you to play every round (if you have less than 4 players you won't even be able to play every round)! There will be enough other players for your empire that will play and submit their results worldwide (and if not - your governour will contact you!).
-) I need Governours and Chroniclers. Those will have extra duties but extra rights too (at the prepared campaign sites). Without them the whole campaign won't work.

So this for now,
Gerald

That's up to agree with your opponent. But I would recommend something between 1500 and 2500 Pts.

I do not get one thing: Chronicle and governour should have playable armies? or they only act as Umpires?
