The dictionary definition of a campaign is, “a series of military operations intended to achieve a particular objective, confined to a particular area, or involving a specified type of fighting.” The General’s Handbook extrapolates on this, saying, “campaigns tell a story that unfolds with each new engagement, where the result of every battle will be impacted by the one before and influence the one after.”
For almost a decade, Animosity Campaigns brought cooperative storytelling and intense map-based strategy on a grand scale to Warhammer players around the the world. Today, Team Animosity is working to reinvent this incredible experience for Age of Sigmar and a new generation of players.
DECLARE YOUR LOYALTY!
When the campaign begins, players pledge their army’s allegiance to a non-player character we call a Figurehead, and fight for the Coalition rallying behind them.
SHAPE THE STORY!
Each turn players will be able to Submit Reports. Reports are the result of a game you’ve played, a short story you’ve written, or even a hobby project you’ve completed. You may then allocate it to the Narrative Path of your choice. After each turn is over, we enter those reports into our game engine and, before the start of the next turn, we post an Unfolding Narrative update depicting your actions and their impact on the story as seen through the eyes of our NPC Figureheads.
Due to the unique nature of this global collaborative storytelling event, and the current situation regarding social distancing, you don’t need to physically play games against other people to participate. In fact, you don’t need to play games of Age of Sigmar at all; there are many ways to get involved! So long as you’re sharing your short stories and hobby projects, you’ll still be an invaluable cog in our collective war machine.
YOU DECIDE THE OUTCOME!
Ultimately what sets Animosity apart the most is the open-ended nature of our player experience. Team Animosity has no intention of “railroading” you; we may set the stage but your characters are the actors and this is your story to tell! Furthermore, each campaign is linked to its predecessors, creating an ongoing fan-written continuity. No matter your level of participation, your contributions will influence Animosity Campaigns for years to come…
