Just started a Mordheim campaign with a couple of my friends. High level report is here:

It's really an Empire in Flames campaign, with some boardgame-like mechanics and opportunities for role-playing mixed in. I'll post the rules on the blog after they have settled down a bit. This is the maiden voyage for the campaign rules, so we are still tweaking things as we go along.

This is very cool. Great pics and the mechanics are very interesting.

Fun. Exactly like something my gaming group might enjoy. More detail, please!

Very interesting.

I'm looking forward to seeing the campaign rules. Please do let us know here at TMP when you post them.

A friend of mine suggested a similar type campaign but using Skaven as the common enemy.

Currently we are in a modified version of the Border Town Burning campaign. It is our first time through the campaign so we have done some tweaking here and there but for the most part it has been great fun. Our group puts more emphasis on laughs than power gaming.

We also have everyone submit articles for the Town Cryer after each day we play. That alone has been a big highlight with the taunting and "fair and balanced" reporting…

Keep up the good work!

We should have the rules and campaign sheets up within a couple of weeks. We're running through it with three players, but I believe my brother will be playing it with his group with five players. Not sure how well I have things balanced for variable player numbers, or if the main mechanics (bitten, morale, influence, and eliminating coffins) are OK.

I love the idea of Town Cryer submissions. I think the first campaign Pirinnen ran that's what they did.

One of the areas where players are hunting for coffins has a random dungeon, and I tried to do 1st Edition DM's guide style tables for it. We haven't played a scenario in that area yet, so not sure how it will work out.

Will definitely post more soon!

Jim – check out the Border Town Burnin campaign for your random dungeon scenario.

Not exactly what you are looking for but might help.

Or go online and find a D&D dungeon gernator and use that.

In a hurry otherwsie I'd post links but I'm sure your Google-fu is strong…

Very nice, it shows what can be done with Mordheim as a "frame" for other settings and ideas. Can't wait to see more!

@DoctorX I'll chck out BTB. I used some of the new items from BTB on the random treasure tables I included in Vampire Hunters. Didn't realize they had dungeon stuff in there too.

I played around with the idea of using dungeon-crawl board game tiles for random dungeon – ala DungeonQuest. That would work great, but I didn't want other people playing the campaign to have to have access to some other boardgames tiles.

Very cool. Inspirational even.
