Sounds fun. Can other armies participate by beating up on panzees and dropping their craftworlds points (by which I mean my Orks)?

Even defeat in battle does not hinder us.

For Ynnead rises as members of our ranks fall...

[list]This will be great - I have a good mate who loves playing scenarios with a fluffy background - should be able to chip in nicely with some points.

Just a few more qs tho...

If the other Eldar players of the site like it (please, if you're in the campaign or even if you aren't, read and comment on fluff), then it gains an additional point (or more than one, if it's really good) for your faction. Please make which faction you are supporting clear.
If we write a battle report in a fluff/narrative fashion that gives us points for "writing good fluff" yeah? Also we post the battle reports in this board if they are related to the campaign, or post in the battle reports and link to it from the scores thread - so we (hopefully) get points for the fight, possible victory, and good narrative/fluff or what not...

For example, if someone on the Eldar board asks for help dealing with Terminators, rather than saying "Hey OP, why not try a squad of Fire Dragons?", say something like "Greetings, esteemed Autarch of Iyanden. In my many centuries of warfare, I have found that the Dragon Aspect handles these monkeigh warriors effortlessly." See? This isn't a clear cut "point per post" thing, but if you keep it up, it will get noticed, and your faction will get points.
This might be harder for me, considering my Eldar knowledge is quite small, and the Dark Eldar board where i could really help is dry at the best of times...btw (out of curiosity) would you be watching the DE board or will you be dedicating this job to Kwi?

If you play Dark Eldar, then your points go to "Commorragh." Unless, for some reason, you want to fight on behalf of the Craftworlders
Of course i want Dark Eldar to fight on behalf of the Craftworlders! (note the hint of sarcasm)

If "Zambia" sounded like an Eldar name and not a country on Earth then yes =P sad thing is it doesn't, so no, it wouldn't =P If you want to claim points for altering your profile, it should be to a believable Eldar name. That doesn't mean it can't be taken from somewhere else, but "Autarch Tyrion" (from WHFB) for example, is rather more appropriate than "Farseer Austria" (another country on Earth ).

Avatar is fine though.

I don't think names are too difficult to come up with, honestly. For a Dark Eldar Archon, I feel "Zandia" would be appropriate, even though it's just one letter shift it sounds more plausible.
Well i can live without the bonus point (ill just organize an extra game :P)

And just a double check - You wanted battle reports, but written in more narrative style than "His marines shoot at the warriors, but roll badly and only kill one"? And we post the reports in this thread titled "Kabal of Shadow's invasion in Ultra" or whatever?

Cheers

Zambia
Yes. So if, for example, you organise a game involving three or more players, play in it, lose, and write it up as fluff (not a turn-by-turn battle report) you'd get three points: One for organisation, one for playing, one for fluff, but as you lost you don't get one for winning, obviously =P

Not at this stage. I want to keep this simple, so it's just Eldar and Dark Eldar. It looks like this has a bit of interest though, so if it goes well fear not, you'll get your chance =P

Yeah, keep battle reports here, be they turn-by-turn or fluff based.

You can get the points for posting in character here, for example if someone posts some fluff for a battle where they are supporting Alaitoc, you could comment in character as your Archon telling them it's all futile or something =P and I will be keeping an eye out in the DE board for DE players posting in character, too.

The reason the fluff thing exists, though, is so players who can't necessarily play lots of games can still contribute to the campaign. Not all fluff has to be about combat. But for example you could write a short story (maybe only around 800 words) about a conflict, even if you didn't actually play it, and get the point for the fluff even though you wouldn't get points for the game - which didn't happen :P

Active participants in the campaign will get karma when this is done, just so you know

Imagine an epic waaaaagh! expansion, with all klans expanding into the neighbouring territories (even the ones containing other klans) and fighting lots of battles (with half against da other klans :P) I cant wait for that to come around :P

Oh and CircusCedhoradh? Would battle-mission games personalized to the eldar/dark eldar be a neat suggestion to people who are having trouble organizing a "different" mission to reflect the specialty of the campaign? Another option is planetstrike (which really suits Dark Eldar too)

Yes, or, in a few days, a scenario featuring some of the special things I'll throw at you :P

I guess I organized next week's 12 player Apocalypse game, prominently featuring Eldar and Dark Eldar on the same side, at just the right time ;D

Archon Charybdis of the Kabal of the Black Heart awaits the coming war with eager anticipation. I will personally seek claim the head of an Astartes commander, and dangle his shattered corpse over the parapets of his own fortress! There will be no sweeter wine than the tang of my enemy's blood-- after cleaving his sanctimonious head from his shoulders. It shall also bring me no end of amusement to go to war alongside our "esteemed" kindred from Biel-tan, and rightly obliterate these smug, impetuous, upstart monkeigh!

We are the Sons and Daughters of the Dark Father. We are here to help those who shunned us. We shall share with you the stories of our victories.

Not having a valid (built) army, I guess I'll be mostly working on fluff.

Ok, just to clarify, you can earn points by writing fluff, which doesn't have to be connected to a battle you've fought, or indeed a battle at all? So a write up of a Craftworlds history would do just fine?
And do we start new threads on this board or just post them in this (or another) thread?

You are correct, if it's good Eldar fluff you'll get points for it.
