Hi, I'm not new to tabletop gaming or Mordheim, but I am new here. My name is Devin Hanson, and I'm an author of science fiction and fantasy. I want to try and use my skills and experience to create a cooperative campaign within the setting of Mordheim. And learn how to get better at building terrain while I'm at it.

Welcome aboard! There's a fair bit of terrain activity around the forum which should suit your goal, & I'd be interested in hearing more about a co-operative campaign idea. Are you thinking of something effectively Dungeon-mastered, with a 'hostile' player shaping the story & controlling opponents, with Mordheim setting/mechanics?

That sounds interesting, the setting (and the source artwork) is the heart of what makes Mordheim so captivating.
I look forward to seeing your ideas.

The general concept I have is to provide scripted story encounters, with event triggers and narration. The content of the events are "secret", so it'd be like, "When all player units are within 6 inches of trigger, read Event #26."

The warband is composed of shared resources. Each mission specifies what the total will be, and the players share it to create a composite warband. So you might have three or four Sisters of Sigmar teamed up with a handful of Orcs. I'll have to do a lot of testing to find out if there's a break point with a number of players. Right now, I'm assuming 2 or 3 players... but it can also be run solo if you just want to experience the story and events.

As for who runs the enemies, it can either be run by a dedicated game master, who is the one to read the event narration and set up the board, or the players can take turns, or one of the players can be assigned to do all the enemy control and rolling. Various setups can be better suited depending on the makeup of the group. Like if you want to play it with your younger kids, you would probably be the one being the game master.

It's still in the early stages of development, so I'd love feedback on the concept.

Sounds good. Triggers & narration revealing events is a good method that works well in things like 'Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower'. I've actually tried introducing elements like that once or twice in special scenarios, but never to challenge co-operating players.

Composite warbands sounds quite fun, & should actually allow for quite a few players if it's the total number of fighters that's limited -- potentially, you could have six or seven players each with a single fighter! Varying the set-up for co-operative play based on who's playing is also sensible, & allows a great deal of adaptability.

Have you read the 'Tilean Days' article in Town Cryer 28? If not, it describes a co-operative narrative event game which may be inspiring reading. There are also hints of a larger narrative campaign, clearly intended for future articles which sadly never came to pass.

I haven't been able to find that article, but it sounds cool.

I have a tentative sample to show around, just the first two encounters. The number of enemy units is totally experimental, and I'd appreciate feedback on it if you try it out.

Here's the link to the google doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ELzFcIUp8Q-MRbBRbie17-VXJTZfgqHtbc3cyfqyTuM/edit?usp=sharing
