Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just thought I'd let everyone know that we're currently working on a means of allowing LO users to play in a single 40k campaign against one another from the comfort of their own homes (or wherever you use the internet).
Using the new Vassal 40k mod (more information can be found here http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ad.php?t=91765 (40k Online - The VASSAL Mod Clan) ), we're going to play an online 40k Campaign against one another!
As it stands, we're currently looking for a basic storyline, and a reason why each race would participate. That's where you come in! Post a quick explanation as to why your favorite army would get involved in the Campaign, and the Campaign Leaders will choose the best one for each race. Winner gets a prize (though we haven't yet decided what that'll be, rest assured that it'll be pretty nifty)! Post your ideas here: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ad.php?t=93223 (LO 40k Online Campaign, interested?)
Thanks guys, and hope to play you soon!

Right.. I can see that there's NO action here. Where are you? All sleeping in your tombs? Hmm?
Well, clearly you need a Chaos Player like me to launch the Necrons into this campaign. Hang your heads in shame... FURTHER!
"The Funk of 40,000 Years" will be helping to spear head this campaign. We shall show the living that we're better than them at not only killing, but also break dancing and body popping and generally being cool.
The world has some kind of important artifact on it. "The Funk of 40,000 Years" requires this for our latest disco ball in our tombs. But, we're willing to share.
Anyone else up for this campaign?
Haven't decided if I'll play crons or BA yet. I'm better w/crons.

The pink lettering, loveydovey smilies and avatar draw me inexorably toward all links. Damn you internet! (
In all seriousness, I'll try to keep up with this, and play my 'Nids in it.
I'm rebelling against form and function by implying 'Nid participation in the Necron duplicate of this thread, instead of the 'Nid one.

Following the failure of the Storm Herald on Medusa the Deceiver is searching for a new chosen Herald. His minions are driven to extremes of violence by their fervor to please the Star God. The Lords compete with one another as to who can provide the C'tan with the greatest of feasts.
Hmm, I actually see the idea of Necron competition and even infighting as fluffy and of benefit to a campaign.
Campaign: My experience in the Medusa V cmapaign convinced me that the actions of players in a campaign are never terribly organized. Choice of opponents is dictated by who is available, not orders from player commanders. If the Necron fluff supports this sporadic and undirected raiding all the better. Since we are unlikely to get all the LO Necron players taking orders and working together, why try? With this fluff the Necron lack of cooperation is explained. In addition, sometimes the only game you can get is a mirror-match against another army of the same codex. Its better if the campaign lets you report such matches, so fluff that explains why Necrons might fight each other is a plus. In addition, Necron players are a minority of almost any campaign. Thus if you set their objective as being in conflict with a larger faction you will run up against the eternal big force vs. large force scoring question. (Wins amount is auto-win for large force, wins-percentage is auto-win for small force). Letting the Necron objective be just being the most successful Necron player is a tidy way to give them us a victory condition that doesn't rely on dozens of Necron players scoring versus hundreds of marine players.
Fluff-wise: Infighting is a perennial Necron problem. The Nightbringer's Necrons would fight the other C'tan. The Outsider's Necrons fought the other C'tan. The Deceiver is more about setting his foes against each other, but surely his minions have battled other Necrons a time or two. Remember that the Necrons are not at war, this isn't a struggle, this is their function. Their technological advantage is unassailable. No casualties are permanent, all will be repaired. There is no driving need to gain a crushing victory. According to the codex, under the campaign section, Necron attacks are sometimes less about causing destruction and more about causing despair and terror. Necrons fighting one another is like Tyrannids fighting one another, just a method of efficiently determining the most effective force composition and tactics. Time is, after all, on our side.
