I’m trying something new here. I’ve started sketching out a 40k narrative campaign setting with some of the guys from my local game group. The idea is to add a little narrative layer on top of our games, to give them a little character and flair. I can’t help it … I’m a narrative gamer at heart. I like to name my little painted mans, and I try to come up with little backstories for the games I play.
The first step for me was to come up with a suitably moody setting … how about a lost colony planet that has been newly rediscovered? Yeah, that’s good. But we need to 40k-ify it by cranking everything up to 11. Enter Caluphel Prime, the largest planet in the system of the same name. It had been lost for centuries, but now factions from all over the galaxy are converging on the planet once again, in search of something.
Stay tuned for more.
