Orktober: Gorkamorka Tagz – Basic Pack

Filed under: Campaign Stuff, Ere Be Stuff, Experimental, News

We’ve been talking about them for a while, but today you can finally use them in their full capacity – Gorkamorka Tagz.

Tagz are our attempt to create a system of “achievements” for Gorkamorka, optional extra challenges for players to attempt. Tagz show off the exploits of your mob and encourage you to try tactics you might otherwise not attempt, helping you keep things fresh and interesting.

We’re not trying to force this on players (we couldn’t even if we wanted to!) and we want to stress that these should work even if no other players want to use them. We also want to make sure you guys understand that this first release is the basic pack, hopefully attainable by all mobs, not just Orks. We’re going to be releasing further packs based around the different factions, scenarios, and campaigns.

dominatinThere are two ways you can use Tagz – one involves a blank grid and cutting out tagz, the other is a full grid with rivets to highlight upon completion.

So, here you can see the Tag Dominatin’, if you were to pull off this impressive feat you would cut it out and stick it to your grid.

Alternatively, you’d find it on your grid of Tagz and shade in all four rivets with a pen/pencil/blood.

We’re providing these to download in two different sizes – one is A4, the other is US Letter. Both grids are exactly the same size, or should be, the idea being to create a standardized size so that any Tagz created by anyone else will fit your grid, not just ours. Each tag is 47mm wide and 51mm tall, by the way, but we’ll be providing more details on that sort of thing later.

If you’re feeling lazy, just grab the Basic Tagz below. If you prefer to get your hands dirty, a blank grid is provided too.

    No there aren’t.

    Okay, you got us, there are. That’s been fixed now and the PDFs are being uploaded. Thanks for spotting that, Ryan :).

    This is a nice idea and I’m surprised it hasn’t been done before – with a bit more detail and a few harder tasks you could make them janglies for mob members to earn. This needs more thought…

    It’s an idea that can be worked on further and you’re more than welcome to contribute if you’ve got any challenges you think should be in there!

    The intention was to release the background glyphs and a specification for Tagz so anyone could make them. I can’t remember precisely what we released in the end but the response was fairly minimal (not positive or negative, just, well, nothing). As a result the project was given a lower priority.

    Gorkamorka is something I plan on getting back to working on in a while, it’s just got to take a back seat for a while so I can build up an appetite for it again!
