Campaign RULES, International Translation

Post by regina dei gatti » 3 Feb 2011, 19:59

- Campaign Begin: 03/02/2011, Campaign End: 03/06/2011.

What will you need in order to enjoy the Campaign? The only one thing you need is playing one or more Kings of War game, and then post your results.

Who will win the campaign? The army that achieve the highest number of conquered cities will be the victorious.

Which armies could be used? All of the armies having an Official Mantic Games army book. If you want to know more about official armies, please have a look here.

Campaign Background:

Eternity is so long for Immortals of Golden Hall.
Every day flows monotonously, supernatural Creatures are not afraid of sickness or oldness, not even richness or poverty, no joy and no pain.

These Creatures are named with lots of appellations, as much as are their phisical embodiment.
That's the reason why the favourite entertainment of these Elysium inhabitants consits in the continous search of ways for overruning one another, always without expose themselves directly.
This is how races and armies raised, they fight instead of their creators in order to establish which one between them is the strongest.
These Manipulators often work at the creation of new troops, hoping to take by surprise and defeat their eternal enemy.

The story we are gonna live starts in one of these days when, during a party, a slaved, mortal man was brought in front of the Lords of Time for entertaining them.
The servant had to invent a new game for Lords fun.
So, the man drawn the shape of an island with a stick , and thenhe started saying that the island was flowing high in the skyes, between earth and clouds, it would have been a perfect playground for godlike Creatures.

Every Lord would teleport his armies onto flying island, and that would have been the theatre of every battle. Only the victorious army would have been able of coming back home from that place.
When Omnia Voice stopped man's narration by saying that there were no differences between fighting on the earth or on the flying island, the slave become very scared, but with just a whisper he replyed that in the island, armies would have found courage and valor trials.
In order to face their destiny, all of the trials would have been contained into a bottomless pot.
So, Dominators of the Universe would have had to choose their army, and then taken a random trial form endless pot, the result of a completely random extraction like this would have been a balanced battle for envolved armies.
That game was just what the Hand that Hold the World wished, so mortal man was pardoned and was sent back to his family...

...at least for now.

Deployment works as usual, but before deploying one of your units, roll a dice in order to discover in which square of the table your unit must be deployed. Note that enemies unit could be deployed in the same area, as it's determined randomly.

After that, units can be deployed in two different ways, one in front of the other, or facing backwards.
In the first case, units cannot be placed at a distance lower hen enemies' charge range.
In the second case, there must be at least 1'' between the two units, and deployed unit cannot be able of seeing the enemy.
Models with "Individual" rule must always be deployed facing the enemy.
Please note that this deployment special rule only affects units that would be deployed in the same square.
If it's not possible to deploy one of your unit in a particolar square, roll the dice again in order to determinate a new deployment area.
If all of the squares are already completely filled up, other units aren't unable to take part at the battle.
(Please refer to following picture for more details).

Every player have to choose an hero and a troop from his army, then sum their points.
After that, the palyer with the lowest sum value may add other troops or heroes to his army until he reaches a value equal or less than opponent ones.

At that moment, roll a dice for every reinforcement unit in order to check if it's able to take part of the battle.
You have to get a 6+ at third turn, 5+ at fourth turn, 4+ at fifth turn, and 3+ at sixth turn.
If a unit wasn't able to join the battle, simply consider it as it was routed, probably they were lost.
Victory Condition
The same as Kings of War rulebook.

DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW:

Every player have to play with opponent army.
Victory Condition

THE FOURTH DIMENSION:
Battle is played usual, with lists and scenario chosen by the players. Also deploy and forts turn of the game work as usual.
Startng from second players' turn, time begins to run out. Whenever a player is playing his turn, the opponent have to check the passing of the time by a watch or a mobile phone.

Max 2nd turn length is 25 minutes, 3rd ones is 20 minutes, 15 minutes for the 4th, 10 minutes for the 5th, and only 5 minutes for the last one. These values are not affected by points played in army lists, so they would not ever being modified.
If a player managed to complete his turn before max time per turn is reached, good for him. If not, as described in Kings of War rulebook, every action not still completed is denied.
Perhaps, if he hadn't completed Movement phase, all units not still moved cannot move, while if you charged an enemy unit but you wasn't able to solve the melee, simply retreat charging unit by 1'', as if you didn't any damage to enemy unit.
