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.
When the campaign begins, you’ll pledge your army’s allegiance a non-player character we call a Figurehead. Each turn, your group’s Narrative Event Organizer will submit a battle report on your behalf- this could be the result of a game you’ve played, a hobby project you’re working on, or even a short story you’ve written- and allocate it to a story option of your choice. Before the end of each turn, we enter that report into our game engine and, when the turn is over, we post a narrative update to our blog depicting your actions as seen through the eyes of our NPC figureheads.
Because of the unique nature of a global narrative event, you don’t need to play against the same opponent on the table whom you’re fighting in the campaign. In fact, you don’t even need to play games of Age of Sigmar to participate! So long as you share your short stories or hobby projects, you’re still an invaluable cog in our war machine.
Ultimately, what sets Animosity apart the most is the open-ended nature of our campaigns. 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 prior installments, creating an ongoing fan-written continuity. No matter your level of participation, your contribution will impact every Animosity campaign to come!
