If this is your first time submitting a battle report, please read the below before creating the report
Have a read through some of the awesome Battle Reports that have been submitted by other players here-->
Enter the title of your Campaign (Major Event) below, this should be the name of the Event:
Battle for Cambrius Minor
WARNING: This report is not as automated as the Battle or Skirmish reports and is meant to be used for large scale events or long term campaigns, please contact the Admin for assistence
One of the most important elements of the entire campaign (apart from playing the games!!), is to report the results of the games so that they can be added to the ongoing campaign maps. Each region should make sure that there is at least one person who is attending a game who is familiar with the scoring requirements and can record all of the important details to go into creating the Battle Report. Individual events or games can be reported through the Battle Report function (these links are also found within the Campaigns themselves) but the overall summary of the Campaign itself is displayed within these report. Most sections can be expanded to add to the theatre of the game, below are some examples along with the minimum data for each category. For Scenario Games a single report could be submitted, though lots of smaller reports culminating in the final result may be better fluff reading; for Ongoing Games each individual battle should have a report.
Creating the Report
The creation of the Battle Report itself is quite straight forward and partially automated; by entering the Battle Reports name in the field above and pressing the Create button it will create a new page called whatever you entered the Battle Reports name as, along with a heap of pre-populated information. If this is your first time creating a battle report, it might be best to enter the Battle Report name and then right click on the button and create it in a new page, so that you can refer back to this page as you continue to create the report.
Once created you will see that the report is split into three specific categories;
The Campaign Details section is an essential element of the report, there are lots of sections throughout the website which rely on information provided in the summary section; news feeds, automated updates, territory calculations etc. Please be careful when entering the data and make sure that each section is entered correctly
This is the date on which the game took place or, in the case of multiple day games, finished. Please enter in the correct format, for example; 1 January 2014
The 30K Imperial date format differs greatly to the current real date system, it comprises of three numbers representing the segment of the year, three additional number representing the year of the millennium and then the millennium, like this: 455.005.M31.
This date will automatically be populated based on the correct date entry above.
Enter the location information of where you are playing your game, make sure the spelling is correct, however if it is incorrect it will appear in red once published and can be corrected using the edit function. This will ensure that the links for the Battle Report flow through to the correct areas for fluff reports to be attached.
If you are entering a Global Heresy report, these will be prepopulated.
This section provides a way of linking all of the players who participated in the game. Simply add each players Army ID into a separate field under either Loyalist or Traitor (they dont need to be even)and it will automatically link the battle report to their page and their overall faction.
This is the main fluff element of the report. The story of what happened during the fighting, maybe even what caused it or the subsequent impacts because of the outcome of the battle. Try to keep the effects within the narrative though, so a single game between two players cannot determine control of the entire Sub-Sector, but it could represent a foot hold being secured on a new planet, or an attack into well defended enemy lines.
Try to avoid using game mechanic term and mentions of dice rolls, keep it in universe, these reports will be linked to all of the players plus they will appear in news feeds on a lot of other groups Systems pages to notify them of new battles which have taken place in other areas of space.
By default there will be six place holder images already populated here, to replace them with real pictures of the game or other illustrations simply change the file name and extension to that of the image which has been loaded (if you havent uploaded the pics, this can be done latter or now by going here). To add more photos simply copy and paste the lines down, or to remove the pictures, simply delete the lines.
There are three prepopulated Categories in this section, be sure not to change the first one; Battlereport! However change the last two to correspond with the actual Planet and Sub-Sector.
