How I envision this:
The background: Something has sent a pulse of psychic energy deep into space. It has originated in a sparsely populated backwater star system called Draatus. Now various forces converge on the system in search of the source.
4 Factions - Each faction is united by a common theme or goal. The armies fighting for a faction need not necessarily be allies but they are all working toward the same ends in the campaign. Each faction is led by a commander, this is the player controlling the factions representative army. Factions can have any number of Armies under there banner, but we want to try to keep the factions equal in size.
Faction - Overarching group of armies fighting for the same goal.
Army - The 40k army used by a specific player. Each army is controlled by a different player.
Commander. - The player and army in charge of a specific faction
Faction - The Forces of Chaos
Commander - Azzorak
Order of Nox - Chaos Space Marines of Nurgle - Azzorak
Goal: Locate the Warp pulse to open a permenant warp storm in Imperial space.
More to come as interest is gauged. Currently I am looking for 3 players to start factions for the campaign. We can play with just the four factions but armies serving under the faction would mean more diverse battles. Post if you want to start a faction or if you want to join one that has been proposed. Post the army you are interested in playing and why they would fight for a specific cause. Try to keep these connections plausible. Feel free to post questions. Map building, modifications to the planetary empires systems, pacing, and narrative will all be done collaboratively in the game thread if this takes off.
