Welcome to the wednesday post. I have been talking a lot about the campaign I am developing for the Gaming Community in Barrie Ontario. Now, if you are interested in seeing the player pack that I have been developing plese go HERE. Today I want to chat a bit about incorporating other gaming systems into a campaign. Now, it seems Games Workshop is no longer supporting its specialist games range. This is a shame, BattleFleetGothic and Epic are two of the best games GW have ever produced! I was lucky enough to score this book:
I am looking forward to reading through it and applying what I can to make some interesting scenarios when plating BFG within a campaign. Its a bit late to incorporate it now into the campaign that is going to start on June 2nd but I am hoping to have some sort of mechanic down pat for the next campaign in november at some point.
What do you think? Have you ever tried mixing thing up within a campaign?
The Last Campaign run at Sir Games A Lot was a great success! The winners of the prize draws posed for some pictures its been a while, but Brad was AWOL as his entire army had been stolen and was missing for about 6 months! But now it has been found and we were able to give him his prize. So, without further procrastination!
Rob and Brad. Winners of the 40k Campaign, Vogen Campaign, cities of death.
The Start of the warhammer 40k campaign is reaching its completion. So this is a small introduction as well as the 4 planets that will encompass phase 1 (weeks 1 and 2). If you would like to stay up to date with the player pack for the campaign that I am working on you can check it out HERE
So planet #9 - The Staging Planet with a couple of Starports.
Work still needs to be done, but this is ready to go. Anyone with a starport will get some cool abilities within the campaign.
Planet #8 - One of the Main Hab Planets.
This planet was one of the earliest settlements of the system. It soon declined in renown and power when the Agricultural Guilds got a hold of the larger and more productive aggriworld.
Welcome to the Campaign Road. This is the 12th installment make sure you check out the others as well. I have been creating a large scale campaign for everyone in my gaming community. I run it twice a year, once at each of the two LGS's . The first store will be Sir Games A Lot. I like to showcase a bit of the work that I am doing for the campaign in terms of hardware but also in terms of rules, so sit back and if you are an aspiring campaign Master make sure you take in what you will.
Phase 1 - Weeks 1 and 2.
The Campaign will begin on the 4 outmost planets of the campaign. There are nine planets, as the warp storm recedes more planets will become available for the players. So, 4 planets will be available to the players to fight on at the start of the campaign.
We have, from left to right:
Styx IV - Civilized Planet - The Staging Planet, it is the furthest from the sun and a system staging area. A very important planet as there are two major startports on it. Whomever controls this planet will indeed control movement within the system.
Pantheon Prime - Civilized Planet - The main Hab world. Great recruitment centers and a space port. During the main uprising the cultists were quick to sabotage all military instalations. Those who survived the conflict now live amongst ruins Read the rest of this entry »
On Mondays, I show a great inspirational miniature. On Tuesdays I try to show you an inspirational and uplifting terrain set, something that you can forge a narrative on. Sometimes that narrative will be the tale of a great defeat, but important none the less Once again, a table set up in my Gaming Basement with some of the painted terrain that I have been using.
The Deamon World. This is the segment that I use to talk about the progress that I have been doing on the campaign. Leading up to the event I have decided to make sure I add a small description of each planet and some general information for those involved in the campaing. Then I will talk a bit about some of the newances that I am thinking about when it comes to the mechanics of the running of it.
The Deamon World is the closest world to the systems sun:
The planet surface is torn and warped. Licked by the radiation of the sun, ravaged by nightmarish figures. There is scant population left on this planet. This was the first world that was affected by the warp rift, the proximity of the sun had expediated the process of the cultists that had summoned forth Skrullathx A mighty blood thirster.

And we are back with another look at the campaign that I am creating to run later in the spring (and also in the fall). 9 planets in a Crusade of Fire style using the planetary empires sets to create the ultimate quest for planetary conquest. So this segment is for me to show off a bit of the work that I have been doing (a little slower that I would have hoped, now that I have more responsabilities at my job). I also like to let you know a bit about how I will be running the campaign so that you may take from it what you will and use it in your own vision.
This is Apollo the 5th planet from the System sun and a Jungle DeathWorld . The building of the starport was quite a feat as per the system records, the agressive flora and fauna setting back the project at every turn. Although abandonned after the conflict the landing strips are still functional and of value to any commander.
This is the planet WIP and in the campaign the players will have some special rules that apply to games played on the planet as the planet itself is alive and might hinder any commanders. Read the rest of this entry »
