New League!

Post  System Commander on Tue Nov 08, 2011 4:16 pm

Hey everyone.. time to whip up a new league!

Unless anyone has any new ground breaking ideas, we might go back to the good ol' default of a set points limit for win/loss/draw with a few added bonuses. I'm going to keep it really basic though.

What I would like though are some ideas for various or different missions. It would great to compile a list of say 36 missions.. that way we could develop a 6x6 matrix to roll randomly on before each game. So if you have a links to any rules or anything you've developed along those lines, let me know. I wont have time to actually compile 36 missions myself, but if someone is up to the task that'd be great.

If anyone has ideas at all, feel free to throw them past me otherwise we'll just go with the default for the league this time around. Plan a game, play, report the results.

I'm going to use the Team Tourney this weekend at the kick-off for the league. I won't record every result for league points, but if your participating in it, you'll get a few bonus points as well as some additional ones if you win any of the awards. It won't be alot, but a small incentive/bonus for signing up for it.

We'll go for about 11-12 weeks and then have our playoffs.

A few idears.....

Cull the Battle Missions book for a few. I know SEVERAL are out there, but a few (The Chaos Marine loot mission springs to mind) work well.

4th Ed Missions. I think there were 9, would be relatively easy to update.

I know Ben had a bunch he used for tournaments, I have it somewhere on my hard drive, I think there were 12, but a few were table specific.

Last, I can go thru my White dwarf Back issues and see what I can get. A lot of the older ones had new missions for the battle reports.

Counting the 9 standard missions (3 deployments x 3 missions) that'd give us....somewhere around 30-ish give or take? We could cull it down and do say 16, so you roll 3d6 for a mission and throw the sucker on a bell curve.

Ive also got about 12 or so Ive created for tournies over the years.. Plus its easyy to get access to any of the US major tourney scenarios.. but they are fairly standard for the most part.

It'd be easy to get to the 36.. but the compiling would be a bit of work. And even then, i twouldnt be mandatory to paly those missions. You and your opponent can agree to play any type of game at all. It would jsut be a tool to help out if you dont anything specific you want to play.

Keeping it basic would be a good idea as we seem to have a bunch of new guys who are new to the town and/or the game. Hopefully they will all participate!

@ Robyn: I can compile them, I've kinda already started.

@ Tim: Yeah, I do hope turn out is good for the league and we get some new guys playing. In the simple vein, it occured to me if we just add 3 more deployment options and 3 more missions we're actually @ 36 and it'd be relatively easy to remember and implement if ppl wanted to play them.

Here here to a simple league.

Having a good mix between kill point and objective missions would be great.

Rhaenyn: We've just rolled off for std missions in the past. The last league Tom ran had some home-brew, but there was definately a mix.

I'm going to be in on this. I will likely not be in the playoffs though as I'll be moving to BC in January. It's going to be fun getting back into the game.

Hmmm, I just might be able to play in this one. I do like the idea of playing missions.

Well this is exciting news! I was reading through the forum, and I apologize in advance if this is redundant, but may I inquire as to the official start date for the league and how much sign up will be?

I think it's five-dolla. I'll be bringing some cash when I play a friendly non-league game on Sunday.
