The End Times - Description, Rules and Players

on Thu Jan 18, 2018 10:13 am
Credits goes for Gigantus for his own version
of the original Call of Warhammer, Rage of the Dark Gods.



"The Three-Eyed King has long awaited this moment, the hour of which his destiny is at last unveiled. He leads an army of madness and rage, against which no sane being would willingly stand. Perhaps I am not sane, as I will fight one last time. Not for victory, but for survival, for the hope that a spark can endure. It is a slender hope, and the laughter of the Dark Gods rings loud in my ears.....These are the End Times..."


Welcome to the first official Main Section hosted Warhammer Gaming Staff Event. This will use the format of the 1 vs many scenario, which people wanted to experience. I will be the challenger of the players of the Empire. Can they stand againts me or will they fail?
The Empire of men is on the brink of extinction in these dark times. Savage hordes are attacking the borders and internal heretic cults and beastmens ravages the lands. The tides of Greenskins from the far east are now preparing for a new WAAAGHHH and while the world slowly engulfed in war an old, evil and dangerous powers rising in the far north and ready to unleash the tide of utter destruction.
The Chaos Gods chosed their new Chosen Champion, Archeon! Under his leadership the hordes of warriors under chaos are now assembling and soon will pour onto the old world. Only the soldiers of the Empire stands in their way! Do the Empire has the power to resist or will they fall in the darkness!

Mod:
We will be using the Rage of the Dark Gods 1.6 version, which you can find a detailed installation here.
After that everyone needs to download this, unpack it and put the files into the correct place.
After you are done use this test save to check if everything works.

The Goal for the Empire players is to survive the onslaught of the outsider forces and stand their ground as long as they can.
The Empire alliance loses, if Altdorf is lost and Karl Franz is killed.
Karl Franz must be in the fights or atleast in 1 turn range of the fights. He is the exemplary leader of Sigmar and the men of the Empire. His presence is needed in the battlefield in these dark times.

The Empire alliance wins, if they manages to kill Grimgor Ironhide leader of the Orc WAAAAGGGHHHH armies and the Chosen Champion of the Chaos Gods, Archeon, the Everchosen and controls over atleast half of the Empire territories.

Roleplaying is not essential part, but to create the dark feeling of this world would be most enjoyable for some, therefore those who like to make RP are welcomed and encouraged here.

Special Rules

These rules only apply to the chaos faction. The level of chaos cult religion in the territories of settlements apply different effects.
If the level of chaos cult religion is 25% or above chaos agents (spies, assassins) are free to move in and do their jobs. The agent rules above will apply to them for now. Moreover chaos horde armies will more likely show up in greater numbers.
If the level of chaos cult religion is 50% or above, daemons from the warp can materialize in our physical world. Daemons may spawn irregularly in the nearby territory and chaos armies with great variety of daemons will show up. Empire generals with 4 or less piety can be bribed by the chaos horde to join their side.
If the level of chaos cult religion is 75% or above, the territory is now under almost full control of chaos. More daemons will spawn in and the more powerful and greater Daemons and Daemon Princes can arrive now into the physical world. Generals can be now assassinated by chaos assassins and will need atleast 50% to do so. Chaos spies can now open gates with atleast 30% chance and only one spy needed to open the gates.
