So I am attempting to set up a campaign for my friends in Only War. Right off I notice a few things that could be added to make the game easier for the GM to run / PCs to understand all that is involved. The below fit in with the Imperium’s need to organize, collate and otherwise create a paperwork nightmare Truthfully these are suggested as aids for people who need them; they are/should not be a required portion of the game. These are listed in what I think their priority order (More important at the top) should be.
1) a Regimental Character sheet. This two page sheet that would cover every aspect of Chapter 2 Regimental Creation. (I am currently ginning up an Excel sheet for it but my Excel skills are far behind many others out there.
2) a Vehicle Character sheet. This would allow for GMs to make their own vehicles (my Regiment will be equipped with Salamander Recon Vehicles for example) based on any of the GW world.
3) A Campaign Sheet: This would have a place to record Mission data (see Mission sheet below) and would have the GMs overarching notes on the campaign. Things that would be placed on this sheet: Awards, Mission Name, Mission objectives completed, Base Mission XP generated. Real World date of mission, Game world Date of mission.
4) Mission sheet: This would be a record of the mission to be completed. It should be filled out to include all objectives of the mission (including those not known by the PCs at the start of the mission. A separate section should be setup for random encounters not as part of a planned mission.
Just a thought but I felt it was worthy to pass on. (PS the GM section would be a great place to have these!)
