But does anyone remember the Warhammer Fantasy Battle NetCampaign (would have been running around approx 1996-1999)? This was basically a campaign combined with role-playing where battle-reports would lead to particular results, played in a similar way to Mighty Empires, but with a real economy and diplomacy, as well as navies etc. and a turn based system.
I think it would be an interesting form of both campaign generation and role-playing fun...
I *vaguely* remember looking at it on the site (that was literally half a life-time ago for me). However, I have seen similar things attempted at local clubs/shops. It would be really cool to run one here, but they'd probably have to dedicate a whole forum section to it, and mod the thing like crazy. I doubt they'd have the resources here to set up the kinds of interfaces you'd need, so the human-element would probably bog it down.
Right now, I'm sticking to the World Wide campaigns like SoC, or Mighty Empires.
Fair enough. Lol - half a lifetime ago eh? I actually heavily participated in it, and was one of the chief "mmoderators" by the time I left, basically running the non-player characters for the HE and processing orders etc from the Elven players. My character was Hallar the SwordMaster..
Well, haha, I'm only 18. It's just funny to be able to say that and have it (kinda) mean something. I didn't mean to make anyone feel old (but i am the youngest in the local shop).
As a mod, do you think LO could run the system? Like I already said- I doubt it. We've got 5 on the armybuilder team, and we've gotten short-handed just for writing lists. We'd need a massive player effort. So... you think it'd gain enough support here? and enough players?
It's really something I'd like to see done- perhaps a contest between the forum sections. We should talk to somebody...
WHO'S THE BIGGEST HEAD-HONCHO MOD in the WHFB forum?!
oh yeah- by the way: I put a thread (LO WHFB NetCampaign?) in the General Discussion with a poll for attendance and support. Go vote- tell your friends!
