Recent comments in the 40K thread caused me to dig out this pair of classic books from my bookshelf. Well tattered and 'donated' to me from my brother in law when they were found in the bottom of a wardrobe in his old bedroom. Weighty tomes detailing all your mortal brain can comprehend of the four ruinous powers of the Warhammer(40K) world and filled with more than just stats and points, also a wealth of severely messed up short fiction, nightmare inducing artwork and so very many random tables.
One of the entirely unbalanced and random things they present in the books is the idea of a Chaos Wastes campaign whereby you roll up a random champion with his random retinue and fight with your friends' similarly random warbands in random scenarios for random rewards and punishments from the capricious Gods. Randomly. Eventually (if he lives) your champion will either amass so many mutations his body gives up the ghost and devolves into a mindless Chaos Spawn, or if he's really lucky, he may catch the eye of his patron and ascend to the lofty heights of becoming a new all powerful Daemon Prince.
Sound like silly fun? I reckon so. We'll start with the fun of rolling up a champion and retinue. Then if all is going well we'll organise a few 'fights' by me rolling a few random dice modified by strength of pre match banter and then entirely making up what happened. Roll it on and see what kind of an epic saga of carnage and debauchery we can weave.
So for an initial trial run I'm looking for one (1) interested party who fancies the long term plan and is online here on the forums for the next hour or so to roll some (lots of) virtual dice. First come first served as I want to kick this off right now! Further interest will be registered and if things continue I'll randomly (how appropriate) pick some more players after a suitable signing up time and we'll see where it all goes.
Roll 2d100 to generate champions starting race and profile.
Fuck it, come one come all. The wastes are large and more players means less risk of game death by attrition.
1) 2d100 for starting race and profile.
2) Pick a Chaos power.
2a) If picked Tzeentch 1D100 for starting magic item.
3) 1D1000 for starting Chaos Attribute (mutation). If Tzeentch then instead 1D3 Chaos Attributes.
4) 1D100 for starting retinue.
