        There was a WarhamerFB netcampaign being run for a while (while
the University of Altdorf still existed) which might be a good template. I
don't know if it is still going since I left the whfb list when it
degenerated into a big argument about how to do the faq.
        The basic idea of the netcampaign was lots of story and a bit of
roleplaying with the listmembers taking on characters. Then there would be
battles which eventuated from the roleplaying and the underlying scenario.
These battles would be broadcast as being x points of this army vs this
army with this map and these victory conditions, and people would go away
and play them at home then send all the results in.
        The underlying story for the campaign was civil war in the Empire
after the death of the Emperor Karl Franz(I think). I'm not big on this
sort of campaign since they strike me as just being a bunch of largely
unconnected battles with a story to string them together. For me a
campaign is more than just fluff for games. If we could all come up with
some nice rules for map movement and the like that would be cool.
