Alpha Strike Campaign Rules
« on: 01 December 2023, 20:50:37 »
Hey folks, here is a set of campaign rules I put together for an Alpha Strike Campaign. It's more detailed than the Chaos Campaign system, but easier than a Classic Btech mercenary campaign. If you have any suggestions on improvements, please let me know.

Holy cow that’s a lot of stuff. I’ll look more later but it’s interesting.

Agreed, this is an impressive amount of campaign rules! I've been working on streamlining Campaign Ops campaigning with the Chaos Campaign system, so I'll try to take a deeper look as well.

I'm planning to take a look! I favor CBT over AS but bettering campaign rules in general interests me.
