Hi!
I need to star a 6 players campain ... and another with 8 players.
I would like to make many multyplayer scenarios for it and would like to give some bonus for who give a contribute for the Mordheim group.

Bonus for who write a background for the warband.
Bonus for who build an element for the table.
Bonus for who take some good conversion or have the band painted.

Very Happy

But i need your help to find some good rules.
For the campain and for the bonus.

bye!

Chunk of Wyrdstone for every good deed?

Edit: Just a thought, but how about rewards for 'exterior' help in the campaign? Giving everyone a lift to club, shouting the Pizza, etc?

Monkey Head Mac's Mordheimers give an extra 100 GP for new War Bands that start the campaign FULLY painted. I thought this was a FINE idea as I got commissions for 6 War Bands out of the deal.

It probably helps to first know which warbands are being played - then you (or the players) can come up with a campaign hook for each warband. I always like to throw in an NPC faction or two that the warbands can optionally ally with or fight against.

As far as multiplayer scenarios, there are tons of really good ones already. Potentially, you could build your campaign around some of them. You can also modify them to fit your storyline better. Monster Hunt is a popular one, but maybe for your campaign you can make the monster a specific boss creature, and the rewards could be some sought-after campaign item that some of the warbands are looking for.

Maybe they start with a hired sword that matches their background?

Quote :

The bonus could relate to the terrain piece/conversion. For instance if they build a pub, maybe their warband can be counted as one size category smaller, or if they build a wizard's tower their spellcaster can learn an extra spell. If the converted model has trophies, then maybe he gets hatred towards that race?

Wow ... you are sharing very good ideas for the bonus.
I'm trying to make them together mantaining some balance in the game.

Band Painted in the start -> Money bonus (50 co)
Background at the start -> Money bonus (50 co)
Battle background report -> +1/-1 in the next exploration
Scenery -> +1dice with +1/-1 in the next exploration

---

I'm searching some rules for the campaing itself too ... how to organise it...
1)Series of matches 1vs1 and multi player scenarios covering all the combinations of players (Like a football league + multi player match)
+Simple to organise
-Lack of Roleplay and liberty

2)Map Campaign
+Epic!
-Hard to organise , don't have experience at all with this...

---

I thought to use the BtB points and bonuses to decide who win the campaign ...I need to decide ... "league" or "map" based!

___Thank you so much___

I'll add for sure some "events" that will trigger with some action...some for good bands and some for bad bands ^^
Like a Tactical RPG as FF Tactics ... and the battalion of undeads that I ordered from MealstormGames will be very usefull for the cause.

Here some Ideas:

- The Sorceror quest : A mage that would discover a very powerfull spell of the ancients

- The knight quest : A knight wandering alone in the wilderness , searching to prove her honor and find the right way for the "dame"

- The necromancer quest : I'll find a way to use many bits here ^^ ... the main event will be a great scenario where the good ones must stop the ritual of the necromancer and the bad ones would defend him fighting in the cimitery Very Happy.
DOUBLE BONUS FOR WHO HELP THE MASTER TO BUILD SCENERY FOR THIS EVENT

- Something linked to a chaos quest : a missive from Archaon , as the campaign is located north-east of Praag and after storm of Chaos.

- Looting Quest : Orks or marauders are looting and burning a village , THIS IS THE SECOND MAIN EVENT Very Happy

In the league I am currently running, I give an additional two wyrdstone to any player who has their entire warband painted, based, and is fully WYSIWYG. It's worked out quite well for our orc player so far. However, it has not been quite enough incentive to get people to paint their minis, but it has kept players in the campaign who would quite likely have been knocked out so far. I would reccomend it or something similar (such as DeafNala's suggestion) for what it sounds like you are trying to do.

Captain well painted (Base , Highlights , Shadows ) -> +1 XP

This is the final bonus ... Very Happy everyone would recognize immediately the warband leader.

Here are three links (the links are only good for a few days)

This was a campaign in a White Dwarf a few years ago: Soul to Keep

Thank u all , i think the campain with the final battle is very good!!!

The only problem is that i think some players would play too much conservatively to don't have much losses until the final battle.

... what do you think?

Wow, nice article Da Bank! Strangely I had never heard of this ...
Thank you, I'll try to use it next campaign.

@garathiel: I don't think people will play conservatively, I mean it's supposed to be just fun, no?

No problem. I have two more secretly stashed (actually I can't find them).

They were written back in 2001 by a person who wrote a few scenarios published in the TCs. His name escapes me but they are pretty detailed and it will require people to help out.

If I find them I will post them.

Don't forget you can add more scenarios to Soul to Keep campaign to make it longer.

You are right ... for me is just fun! I like to add Backgrounds and customization to my models ... and make sceneries for the campain.

Bue there are a few players in the group , that I know they will play hard , trying to win the campain Very Happy

So I was thinking about the problems that a campaing like this would have.
But finally I mean ... if the scenarios give good rewards for who win , nobody would easely take a volontaury rout Very Happy

---

I'll make some tests and let you know what happen ^^

I found two campaigns that some friends passed along to me almost 5 years ago. I sent them to Svenn and hopefully he can get them posted on his website. They are pretty neat but do require you do fill in the fluff and ideas on some things.
