Soiled Meat



Please let everyone repost their fleet lists below before posting anything else!
If you have any concerns, contact me by PMs, IRC, or in the old thread.

Campaign will last 12 turns. Any faction that has completed their objective at that point receives a faction victory, and each admiral in that faction gains 10 Renown. Admiral with the highest Renown score at the end is the hero of the campaign.

Factions:
-The Imperium of Man [Imperial Eagle]
---Imperial Navy (thatbastardken)
---Adeptus Mechanicus (Vulin)
-----Starting Worlds: Spyrax Secundus, Okayama
-----Objective: Maintain order (Control at least 8 planets of any type)

-The Pluton Pact [Cross]
---Rogue Trader (JcDent)
---Eldar Corsairs (Lord Koth)
-----Starting Worlds: Pluton Primus, Diyu
-----Objective: Create a secessionist kingdom (Control a Mining World, an Agri-World, a Forge World, a Penal World, and two Civilised Worlds or one Hive World)

-Waagh! Wrathtoof [Ork Head]
---Orks (Elbrak)
---Orks (Professor Curly)
-----Staring Worlds: Boervax, I/786/L4, Leiria
-----Objective: Loot the place (Control a total of at least 6 Hive Worlds, Forge Worlds, and Civilised Worlds)

-Hive Fleet Drakaina [Alien Fetus]
---Tyranids (Fool_of_Sound)
-----Staring Worlds: Leoc, Minos Primus, Nifilheim
-----Objective: Eat and grow strong (Control at least 25 Repair Points worth of planets using average Renown of faction members [Penals count as average, rounded up]).

-Reaper Fleet Acheron [Ankh-ish Symbol]
---Necron (Incy)
-----Starting Worlds: Acheron, Y/392/K7
-----Objective: Control and/or perform a successful Exterminatus against 5 non-Uninhabited worlds. When they are the aggressors, Necron may perform Exterminatus instead of Planetary Assault if it is rolled.

[Note: We are not using the '-10 points per controlled planet' rule, because that isn't really viable in factions.]

Turns:
1. Attack Rating will be rolled by the GM to determine attack order.
2. Attacks are declared in order. You can declare openly in the thread; secrecy is no longer an issue. All players must have exactly one battle per turn. If after selection this is not the case, attacks will be reassigned by the GM to make it so, with reassignment starting with the last attack selecting player.
3. The attack is automatically a Raid unless the attacking faction has a world adjacent to the attacked faction, in which case the attacker may choose to have a Battle instead. If there are no neutral worlds adjacent to your faction, you must declare a Battle. The player declaring the attack is automatically the attacker.
4. Winning a Raid allows the winning player (attacker or defender) to choose an adjacent neutral world to take control of. Winning a Battle allows the winning player to take an adjacent world belonging to the faction of the losing player. Raids cannot temporarily take control of worlds. A faction can never lose its last planet until the final turn.
5. Repair points are determined based on all worlds your faction controls, modified by Renown as normal, then divided by the number of players in your faction, rounded up.
[Note: You may select which world to conquer as soon as you win your game. First come, first serve; play your games!]


Appeals:
Refits are 2+ appeals, Specials are 4+ appeals, and Reinforcements are special; 2+ escorts, 3+ cruisers, 4+ heavy cruisers/battlecruiser/roks, 5+ battleships/grand cruisers, and 6+ hulk/Star Fort/Fortress-Monastery.


Battle Reports:
You aren't required to do full narrative AARs or anything like that, but you do need to make a post after each battle noting the following:
1. Both players and their fleet races.
2. Which world was lost or gained, and by whom.
3. Battle type and subplots played, with victor and completion/failure.
4. Victory Points.
5. All Renown changes.
6. A list of all ships and squadrons crippled or destroyed.
7. Ship experience and Appeals rolls.
8. Repair points generated and spent, and any ships being withdrawn the next turn.

Someone suggested that we houserule refit costs to make them more desirable; looking for opinions on how to implement that. A couple ideas:

1) Change the price per refit from 10% of the ship's base cost to 5%
2) Make the first refit free. If we do this, we'll also have to increase the evolution cap on 'Nids by 1, and let them use Refit Appeals to gain a random free one.
3) Attempt to price out the refits based on the Tyranid evolution prices. This is a complicated solution and may or may not be well balanced.

Inciner (Tzeentch Chaos) v Lord Koth (Eldar Raiders)

Raid, scenario 3. 'The ambush' or something.

Result:

Merciless domination - 7 hits, crippled
No ld roll
Withdrawn for repairs

Unrelenting malice - no damage
Ld roll failed

Injustice - 1 hit
Ld roll failed (at ld6 screw you dice!)

Brutality squadron - no damage
Ld roll passed, ld7 so must upgrade to ld8.

No appeal

No renown change

I would like to use 1 repair point on the injustice, however that works

The 'game':

The game was the raiders. I deployed, lord koth flew on and damaged the domination to the degree of 7 hits (the average expected was 3.5 so I was a little irritated). I disengaged the domination, reformed and prepared to attack his ships next turn. All eldar ships disengaged top of turn 2.

The injustice didn't even get to gain a point of ld. This was one of the most frustrating tabletop experiences I've had, and demonstrates one of the major failings of the BFG campaign mechanics (that almost everything punishes you for playing the game).

I cannot fault Lord Koth for disengaging, it was the correct play as sticking around would likely have let me leverage my range advantage in to dealing serious damage my turn 2 (as my fleet was sunward he had the option of crawling towards the 60cm threat range or disengaging).

By design, I cannot see this scenario lasting longer than the one ambush turn, or requiring more than one player's input. I cannot be more critical of it, it's a very unfun scenario to play in a campaign and should probably be excluded from the potential scenario pool.

1) Change the price per refit from 10% of the ship's base cost to 5%
2) Make the first refit free. If we do this, we'll also have to increase the evolution cap on 'Nids by 1, and let them use Refit Appeals to gain a random free one.
3) Attempt to price out the refits based on the Tyranid evolution prices. This is a complicated solution and may or may not be well balanced.

Shout your opinions about this in IRC.

I made a rogue draft for option 3. It turns out it was easier than expected, with most of the refits having something analogous in a fleet list. Again, let me know your opinions in IRC please.

This had been a good side venture for Aphesius. Even far away from native Koronus, he was still at the top of his game. That "game" usually involved shooting some petty tyrant to take control of his planet. Of course, since negotiations on Naraka broke down rather violently, he had been forced to do just that. And now, the mining planet was all his, and Aphesius was free to report the success to his Eldar Corsairs allies.

Hiss ships were flying in a loose formation. A Byevoor escort squadron was flying the vanguard, with the trophy pirate vessel Stars of Inequity providing long range support. Even though the Eldar had assured him that there was no danger there, Aphesius felt he had to be prudent. His own flagship was flying close to an asteroid field, scanning it for anything lootable. The last and limping in formation was "Faith and Coin". It wasn't the real cruiser - in fact, this was just a crude cruiser shaped frame hammered onto an old transport ship, "Scandalous Wench" was the name and it was crewed by some of inept, bumbling pirates Aphesius had ever encountered. Only engines, life support, bridge and a small battery remained on the gutted ship and Aphesius ensured their loyalty by always keeping the ship in his sights. It was a useful piece to have when bluffing, but nothing more.

"Sir, we have contact... Tyranids at the gas cloud!"

Before the fleet could react, a tyranid cruiser class organism and three ugly oversized escorts slid out of cover provided by the cloud. The enormous beast fell to his ravenous instincts almost immediately and turned towards the planet. The escorts, however, flew straight ahead. Inequity had just enough time to brace for impact as foul bioplasma bypassed the shields and burst onto the hull. Trader's own Xeno escorts turned to engage, but their weapons failed to dent the thick armor. Victory shot a lance blast at the massive ship, but it only detonated a shield spore RIP Bob the Nid

It took the combined might of both real cruisers to take down two of the horrid alien escorts. Nevertheless, one of the got through unscathed and vomited plasma on the aft of Expanse. Aphesius cursed the foul beasts and ordered the ship to come to a new heading.

As the larger Tyranid regained its composure (no doubt helped by accurate long range fire from the Carnage class), it turned towards Inequity. Just then, "Faith" contacted the flasgship and delivered an atypically brave statement: they would ram the tyranid ship. It was risky, but there was hope that the frame would both sotften the blow and do some damage to the alien ship before collapsing.

Minutes passed as everyone on the bridge watched the sensor screen, where a green triangle marked SW was approaching a red enemy square. A few more moments and... impact! The crew cheered at the maneuver and Aphesius thought that maybe the pirates were actually getting better (due to his proximity, of course).



Alas, all the joy faded when a more accurate sensor scan revealed that the "impact" had been nothing more than pirates detonating charges (no doubt mugged off some miners) to free their ship from the frame and then darting away. The trader swore that next time, he would not be merciful to these dogs.

It took a few more ours and Rock's demise in a horrid tentacle embrace to finally slay the space beast. By that time, escorts were chasing down the remaining nid organism, enjoying all the wonders of of escort battles. Ignoring the fleeing pirates, the two cruisers did their slow maneuvers to get both withing reach of the 'nid and bring their guns to bear. The creature, acting on instinct, was heading towards Naraka, and who know what it could do!

Salvo after salvo of battery was sent towards the beast, giant torpedoes streaked through space, and Inequity showed the long range mastery of the crew - and all for naught - the ship was too small, too nimble, too well armored by its fell biology. The only upside was that one stray shot eventually fell on a mining complex on Naraka, eradicating a brewing Chaos cult.

The beast escaped.

"At least we have the planet" Aphesius blurted, surly from the fight.

"M'lord, we have... remembered this relic. I think you should have it" the miners said marking the position of centuries old ship prow with intact arrester engines, happy not be eaten.

Journal of Battle Group Commander Macklemore 5769999.M41:
Commander Lewis just send me his mission report. On his way to Wolframus the convoy was ambushed by Orks. They charged the transports as it fits mindless beasts such as them. 3 of the smaller transports were lost and two of our ships sustained minor damage. The shipyards on Wolframus should be able to repair them in time. Even better, the venerable Emperor Battleship 'Potentate' just completed its repairs and is able to be integrated into the battlegroup. The ship was heavily damaged in a surprise attack by the Eldar a few decades ago.

In more worrying news, the Archmagos of Wolframus reported that one of their Explorator Fleets encountered a small splinter of an Hive Fleet near Minos Primus. It seems that the earlier rumours were true, the Tyranids have reached the sector.
