Anyone got an idea for a new campaign?

Post by commander keen »

I'm interested in trying to make a new campaign and i was wondering if anyone had any simple(ish) ideas that they can't be bothered making.

I'd prefer something not overly long and not too many new graphics required. I don't mind a few but i don't want some fiendishly difficult task for my first campaign.

I don't care if all you have is a plan, i just need a sort of a map otherwise I'd end up with a mess of pointless scenarios with no real climax...

So if any of you have a reasonably easy idea? :)

P.S. Clarification: what i mean by "map" is a sort of plot or possible scenario order just so i don't end up wasting time (i have a habit of making too many scenarios due to my infinite number of ideas)

1) Heir to the Throne from the Orc point of view.
2) An assassination attempt at Li'Sar and Konrad's wedding.
3) A series of siege attempts on a Lavinian city, where your force dwindles due to lack of food rather than grows after each battle.
4) The humans from UtBS fight the trolls and the dwarves.
5) A pie-eating contest between Kalenz and Delfador. To the death.

When he returns, he faces the orcs. Luckily, he has some elvish soldiers... :wink:

There are a approximately million unfinished campaigns whose owner has left and is possibly never coming back. If you don't have a clear campaign idea of your own, I suggest browsing through older threads of this forum and taking over one of those campaigns. You can even benefit of something that's already been made.

If you look at the link in my sig, you'll see I have a bunch of campaign ideas for people who don't want to come up with one themselves. ;) Pick one you like and I'll elaborate on it.

Err I have to point that said scenario already have a bunch of copyrigth owners and we dont have permission to use them... so it shouldnt be stored in the forum nor the campaign server.

As you probably noticed, every single thread you linked to had this objection brought up pretty quickly. We aren't going to delete the threads, because they're good for future reference, but yes you have to delete the maps.

I like Turins idea on the Taming of the wild(Excellent setting and no extra graphics required)
and Blackopself UtBS idea(minor one in case I mess up :oops: )

P.S.
I was thinking I could make one to do with a loyalist training camp which was raided by orcs...But these ideas are better, if not mine.

why don't you make a campaign in the Green Isle ruled by undeads and orcs? You are Jevyan's elder but no one wants to obey you as a king so you must kill every rebel... this isn't a good storyline, make something better this way... make a cruel campaign ( Green Isle is Hell )

I think I'll do Turin's Taming of the wild idea.

Pros: Historical, Mainlineish, I'll learn lots of WML :D

Cons: Slightly "Classic" ( Loyalists vs orcs, how many Campaigns do this? :wink: )

Turin, could you say... Provide more Information?
Lucky for me I just spent 4 hours downloading 1.1.8
