Greeting to everyone who has sgned up for the Imperium on Medusa V.
This is the Order of Battle main thread from now on, coordination, strategy and advice will all occur here. There are several thing which we would like you to know about.
"Every result we post on the FoMV website has a text area for us to put our stories about our games in."
According to an e-mail by Chad Miezwa, Medusa V will be a narrative campaign. A narrative campaign I hear you cry? and i'll answer. This is about winning and fluff.(though GW hate the term fluff).
To influence the campaign what happens in game is important, big events such as Dark Stars and big GW events will have a larger effect but using that fluff section can be a godsend. To get LO noticed I have come up with the following stratagem. We deploy Medusa V to locations (chosen by the Senior Commanders) and fight it out over them. If all goes according to plan then by the end we ought to have a couple of pages of what LO achieved in LO in novella form.
This is an example of an order that could be given:
Zone Edethor. IG Command Day 0
Thought for the Day: Contempt is the weapon of the pure.
This week LO battle group "Laomedon"-(liable to change) has been deployed around the 3 settlements of Ragnes Gate, Ethilidus and Vorgons crossing. The 3 towns provide a shield to the strategicaly vital Ragnes Bridge an acess route from the southern Hives over which the products of the Hive Factoriums and refugees pour.
The towns lie some 30km to the south of the Bridge and Ethilidus has come under the most heavy assault.
So key fluff, mention one of the three towns i.e:
>The 340th Lentoskian have deployed in the suburbs of Vorgons Crossing.
>References to street fightng and protecting Civilian convoys.
>Reference to Battlegroup Laomedon and working with other known LO forces in Edethor.
Please write your "fluff" for this week games based on this area and these themes (and don't forget to win).
Edethor Zone Commander
As you can see, it's background. Now what you would do on seeing this is hopefully something like this:
Random Test Person 1 (Silver Wings)
Ok commander, wilco. My fluff for my win today.
My forces the 37th Lentoskian deployed as part of Battlegroup Laomedon and moved south from reserve at Sybilla Tertius to the township of Ethilidus. Ethilidus is one of three towns protecting the approaches to the Ragnes Bridge. Not content to stay stationary Mechanized columns roamed the surrounding countryside heavy company strength patrols engaging and destroying both an Orkoid and a Traitorous host.
That is an example of a basic instruction, we don't know precisely how long the fluff section you ought to get will be. However including things like "Battle Group Laomedon" will get noticed if enough of you do it.
That's not all we advise you to do. Starting a campaign with your friends/people at your local gaming venue and referencing it would be a great idea and simply play as many games as you want/can this summer. Putting up battle reports on LO will not go unrewarded and as there are GW leaderboards if someone from LO could get on to one that would be excellant.
So, if you haven't signed up on Medusa V yet do so and stand by for further instructions.
Any questions, don't hesitate to ask here. I'm sure I have forgotten something and that others have the same question as you.
>See forgotten something already. We will be breaking this down by Battlezone. We have commanders for each Battlezone and will issue orders for each one in this thread but separatly. There is no location swopping so that's simply the best way of dong it.
BZ commanders are currenty:
Silver Wings for the UK
Firedrake 28 for Canada
Triumph of Man and Lord Yossanrion for Australia/NZ
Rogue Angel and Da Mighty Camel for N.Europe and S. Africa.
Undecided for the US (but shortlisted).

Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
This thread is directed at all you warriors of the Imperium who will be fighting here in the Tisiphone sector of the campaign (aka. Canada). I have created a Website to help us Canadians who will fight for the Emperor during the campaign to connect and communicate between us.
Join in here, but make sure you read the rules!
This is most of a post I made on the Canadian Forums yesterday. I invite all canadians here in the LO Battlegroup to join up as well, as we here are the ones I mainly made the site for. This is where we our orders can be posted, along with discussion of our tactics in the Tisiphone sector..
"The Enemies Gate is Down" (Bean/Ender)
"Individual human beings are all tools, that the
others use to help us all survive." (Graff)
"There is no teacher but the enemy." (Mazer Rackham)
This is just an idea but is it an idea to make sub forms for each sector where we can discuss our tactics and intel. Because otherwise it will become one big mess in this thread or another.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
We tried.. but Blackie has gone, and our pleas fallen on ears that are not there. (He couldn't hear us, and therefore we go no subforum).
I'm with you Wings, all the way!
Indeed, be a litle mature about this. We're at war here, the time for talk is over my friend... It is time to meet on the fields of purifying battle...And whatnot.
As for adding fluff to everything, I like it! But...I don't have a map. Where can I get one so I can see whats going on when other people post with their movement?
I believe (as Yoss says) that we will be doign the bulk of the ordering here. We don't really want to subsume the IG forum beneath Medusa V and there is no word on a Med V sub-forum.
Gandhi, if you sign up on the Medusa V website, you get a map of all of Medusa and also a more detailed one of each Battlezone.
Others: mentioned previously.

I have a Medusa V map I can send you with all the zones in it, just PM me your email adress.
Just a little point here. Im currently in the lovely Medusa war room, studying the Edethor map. Now, I understand that Laomedon has been deployed to help ensure the safety of Ragnes Bridge, but I cant find anywhere on the Edethor map that corresponds to this, or any other of the mentioned locations. Once the campaign begins, which of the areas of Edethor should we be reporting in to support the LO war effort? Or is all that stuff about Ragnes Bridge just an example, which is why it doesnt appear on the map? Sorry if I'm being a tad dim here.
The idea about building everyone's battle fluff into a coherent structure of LO's acheivements is great BTW.

"Is there anything you dont know about 40K ???" - Friend
"Well, I still haven't worked out where Termies keep their spare ammo..." - Me
Yah, its just an example for the moment.
No worries about being confused its alright, most of us still are.
You can also get a great big map from WD318. It mostly covers your sector, but it's very detailed in whats going on. At least, the US one does. I'm not sure about UK.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: Are you wounded?
Clouseau: No. Fortunately I was saved by the darkness.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: So what we need is more light.
