Using some map making software, I have two very basic maps to potentially get the next Airspace Campaign off the ground...

and

Image

I have a couple of very general ideas on where to go with this...

1. Something very important was just discovered on this fringe world, and all the combatants are rushing there to get it. I.e using some rules for orbital drops, ie special scenarios (Like CheesyRobman's), new aircraft (Caestus Assault Ram, Ork Landa), and new rules (such as dropping from orbit, returning to orbit, etc.) This could allow a ladder style of campaign, factions that win various turns get bonuses and the like.

2. Something a bit more standard. The Good guys -I.e. Tau, Eldar, Orks, and Imperials- are attempting to evacuate a planet that is being sucked into a warp anomaly. Chaos forces are attempting to halt their evacuation and pin them on the planet in order to suck them into the warp as perpetual playthings for the Gods.

3. Or something totally different that you suggest.

Let me know what you think and any ideas of what you would like to see in the next AI online campaign.

I have also been working on the timeline of events. I have decided to name the planet Bin Mazar. That is subject to change.

Timeline Investigation of Bin Mazar

649.M35
Rogue Trader Hans Digitalis and his cartel begin to explore the area of the Eastern Fringe referred to as the Old Guard Stars.

121.M36
The Administratum declares the Old Guard Stars as a Sector of the Imperium, and it is divided up into smaller Sub-sectors.

485.M36
St. Augustine, at the head of a Crusade fleet; pushes Xeno taint out of 75% of the Old Guard Stars, hence preparing the way for Imperial colonization efforts.

120.M39
The first settlers begin to arrive at Bin Mazar.

140.M39
All communication with Bin Mazar is lost.

160.M39
Investigation by Rogue Trader Hermann Octragius reveal all settlers have “disappeared”, and colony is in disrepair.

165.M39
Battlefleet Ultima declares the system “Perditas” until further notice.

648.M41
Colonization of Bin Mazar is authorized by the Sector Governor. The “Perditas” status of the planet is either ignored or lost to time.

701.M41
The second colonists arrive on Bin Mazar.

708.M41
Orks are discovered on Bin Mazar, and the Ork uprising begins against the Imperial authorities.

735.M41
Requests for aid from Imperial Forces are ignored by the Departmento Munitorium.

742.M41
The Orks decisively defeat the Human PDF at the Battle of Drunn's Ridge. The Long Retreat begins.

748.M41
Rogue Trader Quintus Octragius intervenes at Bin Mazar to stabilize the situation. In exchange, he is given exclusive trading rights with the planet and unlimited access to their spaceport.

750.M41
An unknown power surge rips across the surface of Bin Mazar devastating 90% of the planet's surface. The main continent is left as a barren wasteland with only the coastal areas remaining intact. The last human colony and spaceport are situated off-shore on an island and are spared.

751.M41
Word of the incident is intercepted and suppressed by the Inquisition. Inquisitor Xanatos organizes an expedition to Bin Mazar to open an investigation. The expedition is codenamed: Black Brush

752.M41
Inquisitor Xanatos expedition arrives, but his forces are not the only ones interested in learning the secrets of Bin Mazar. Xeno and Chaotic forces have also arrived in system, eager to find the secret of this power source for themselves.

I made a page of the Investigation of Bin Mazar Campaign Booklet. It is a map that shows where Bin Mazar is in relation to the Galactic Map...

Let me know what you think.

I also need AI related artwork for the campaign booklet. I will list yout name in the credits, and add a link to any self-promotional website into the appendix.

The Campaign Booklet is complete and edited.

Also, Monticus on the Airspace board completed some faction specific medals to be used in players signature lines as bragging rights.
