GCE Campaign Book 1.0 released!

Filed under: Campaign Stuff, Experimental, News

Da Kommittee has been hard at work on the next GCE release – the campaign rules!

Quoting the last release:

What if there was a version of the Gorkamorka rules that could be legally distributed, modified, and updated. A community edition, if you will. It’s an attempt at that.

This book is the campaign book.

What’s in it:

It provides the generic framework for between battles – income, levelling up, generic skill tables, serious injuries, and so on. The default mechanics that can be replaced or modified by faction rules.

What’s not:

Faction-specific rules. If it doesn’t apply to all factions, it’s not in there. You won’t find rules for creating an Ork mob, for example. Those are in the faction packs.

At the time of writing there aren’t any released faction packs but worry ye not – these rules are backwards compatible with the original rules. Just use your original faction rules (there’s a table in this book showing you where to find them!).

What’s new?

  • Skills overhaul
  • Modified the Serious Injury table
  • Modified the Permanent Damage table

Over time we plan to add further content to the campaign book to better help players run interesting campaigns. For the 1.0 release though we decided to keep it simple.

As always if you have feedback you can head over to the development document and add comments.

    Hey there! This is super cool, i can’t tell you how excited my brother and I are really stoked to play some of our first gorkamorka matches soon!

    Super minor note, some of the page numbers are off. For example I was looking for the section listed in the index “buying vehicles page 34” there’s only 30 pages in the rule book and I found it instead on page 27.

    Thanks for your time!

    How odd!
    It looks like LibreOffice Writer’s default way of generating ToCs is a bit weird (it generates it from a rather nebulous “outline” which sometimes, but not always, treats page breaks as section breaks). The generation method has been changed now to use H1, H2, and H3 instead and that seems to have fixed the issue. Thanks for flagging it up!
    GCE v1.01 is now up (and the link in this post has been updated).
