Just an update work has picked up again so less writing time but Solland is mainly done the problem has become trying to flesh out the Imperial History of Gorbab's Waaagh to go with it or just leave that to do later. It has been a really annoying write that as since the tale first appeared in the 4th edition there have been 5-6 different versions of the events (progressively worse in how they are arranged as well). Anyone happen to have a preferred version of events of a convincing argument as to how they think it goes?

Also very tempted to make maps to the campaign route as well though that could cause even further delay....

Does anyone want anymore of this stuff? So I have large partially finished portions of various Empire background I could post, no full provinces that don't need heavy editing sadly. If anyone wants stuff, or particular stuff, I'll post rather than it languish on my hard drive forever.

I'm always happy to read more! I loved your previous writings on it. They were some of the best introductions to the various areas and fluff.

Already the thread is impressive, but I'd always like to read some more.

However, don't have an idea of what, really, at this point. Some Empire expeditions out of Empire proper?

Maybe our involvement in the Crusades to Araby? Or the Empire's campaign to Albion?

The Albion campaign would be pretty rad. Or maybe some expeditions/colonies to Lustria?

Hmmm well Lustria or Albion are highly unlikely with the dearth of information on Imperial interactions with these regions. I mean when know there have been some and that a prison colony is still maintained in the Southlands but its founding and operation have never been fleshed out. Albion is perhaps worse as I'd argue the Dark Shadows campaign never happened, I've already thrown out the events of Storm of Chaos so as its loosely linked precursor Dark Shadows goes as well.

The Crusades are an interesting choice but we really only have good sources for the initial campaign which saw the defeat of Jaffar. Though Imperials continued to crusade for sometime after the raison d'etre of the whole event was over we have little information as to reason. I have always figured that after over a century of civil war in the Empire, Araby looked like a good place to raid and loot to improve the depleted coffers back in the Empire.

Looking at what I do have written down I think the best to perhaps scratch this foreign adventure itch is talk about the Knights of the Blazing Sun. I've posted bits from this section in other threads over the years asking about them, so perhaps it is time I finished writing it.
