I possibly wasn't clear enough with my entry, whilst my warband is led by a thousand son, and certainly has squads of Thousand Sons, it also includes other warbands hired/manipulated into cooperation by Memnon (for the purposes of this campaign). Such as the Brazen Warriors (zealous god-worshiping, predominantly undivided Iron Warriors offshoot), The Blessed and the Damned (Possessed Tzeentchian Black Legionnaires) and a couple of squads of former loyalist renegades, from a variety of chapters.

I have background for each of my main characters-

Sorceror-Scholar Memnon Heraclea, the Red Son of the Corvidae- an extremely gifted Thousand Son, his skill has begun to rival Ahriman's himself. At least in Memnon's deluded imaginings in his crazed and tormented mind. His powers are in fact somewhat average, but his talent for self preservation surpasses all.

Warsmith-Apostle Drax- leader of the Brazen Claws, his size and bulk is such that his armour has been modified from a combination of power and terminator armour.

Buriaak N'Gasta- Tzeentch Daemon Prince, leads his warband of Possessed Marines.

Rargggh Money for the Change God...

Haha I'm definitely going to try to have narrative battle reports if I get time. I'm currently holed up in bed with a giant swollen, sprained ankle. Gah.

This is BtW's son...

I would like to participate. I'll be playing my Black Templars if that's ok with all of you. Look forward to having some fun.

Thanks!!



Welcome sir!

Maybe your Templars can put a whoopin' on your old man's Word Bearers! :D :P
Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf

Errrrr, the Host of Memnon. In universe, they've not given themselves a name, as Memnon feels that his name alone should strike fear into the Imperium. However, a very junior adept entered this as more of a descriptive term, but the moniker stuck. The individual leaders don't really acknowledge this title, but its their name from an Imperial point of view.

(I've just been watching Star Wars OT, and as I was writing "Imperial" I was thinking of Stormtrooper legions...)

Excellent.

SO.

Final Ruleset stands at:

5% per victory, one report per week, per person. Three zones of control on five planets. Once each zone gets to 100%, it is locked in. If a planet is totally controlled, it is also locked. Only victories count.

Is this correct and right by everyone?

hang on one possible glitch... as per Kol_Saresk...

But the official mechanic is each player posts once a week, each post is worth 5% and 100% will lock down a zone and when all three zones are locked down, the planet is locked. To me, it doesn't jive that will. Especially since the subtitle says "Like the Eye of Terror". From what I've read of the game mechanics, a planet was fought over until the game ended. Here, Twenty players can get together, and put all of their victories towards one zone and keep doing so until someone gets a lightbulb and tries to stop them. The problem is, if all twenty post first before the other player can, too late planet locked, one less warzone.


EDIT: so what do you say... maybe limit 5 victories per zone per week to give other side a chance to figure out what they want to do?

@Possessed Marine.
Good point. I'm going to say that "if an area is locked, than an assualt may be launched against it. 10% percent against it will unlock it for percentage points again."

That was the plan yes.

Sounds like a good compromise. Hell I'd even go so far as to say that they would have to be Planetstrike games... but I know not everyone has it, so it wouldn't be fair to make that a requirement. But if I personally was going to try to breakthrough in a warzone, I'd use 'em.

I would like to be able to unlock worlds and sectors again with a push. ie: need to regain 10% control on the sector before it counts (so, place 2 victories to regain a foothold, then you start gaining % in your favour again) otherwise it could just be a landslide on week one for 2 sectors and that would get rather boring and/or frustrating. especially if all worlds are completely split and is impossible to take control of a single world.

Sounds great to me.....Can't wait to get started...

Might I suggest that once you get all the background together along with the rules set in stone that you send it via message to all the players' "in-boxes" to be sure we all have an easily accessible place to review and/or print out the info....

And how long do you want to have for sign-ups? Perhaps between now and June 1? Then start the campaign that weekend? Or do you have something else in mind as far as these go? Anyhow, not wanting to step on toes, just very excited!!
