The online campaign this year hosted by On TableTop (formerly Beasts of War), will be situated in the Human Edge, on an Asteroid in the Homeric Belt. For those new to Infinity the Game, or new to the online campaigns, these are a global, real time campaign spanning over a month period. Players create accounts on the Warconsole website when it goes live, and will be able to record their games at a given location to gain points. Further players can accumulate experience points to rank up. These experience points are gained from achievements. First Win, First Loss, First Draw, X number of comments on the forums, X number of commendations given to a battle report etc. The battle report system can be a bit confusing at first as well, and I will be sure to post a simple tutorial for folks when the website goes live. The Haqqislam base is a space port in the side of the rock called Pakngein Nbis Haqqislam in the past had always been a voice for diplomacy to the other factions, and an attacking force when called upon. In Flamestrike, we worked closely with the Nomad Nation to capture and secure the Yu Jing Power Plant. In the Wotan campaign, we initiated Operation Noodle Run when we were called on to secure the Yu Jing territory during their decline in military personal, and secure the Beijing Orbital Station for them. Finally in Kurage Crisis, we stepped in to force back an Aleph assault on the Kommstadt Array defended by the Nomad Nation who had issues pulling in enough personnel quickly to defend both of their locations. Once the Nomad Nation had sufficient force, we relinquished control back safely. In all Operations, the Sword of Allah succeeded decidedly in their goals and objectives. Finally, no one has come close to taking Haqqislam Territory over. We had a hard fight at the beginning of Kurage but luckily it did not continue. The relations with the other nations at the end of Kurage Crisis are as follows from the viewpoint of Haqqislam High Command: Nomad Nation - Remaining strong. It has been strained at some points, but both factions have come together on numerous occasions. Ariadna - Following the Wotan incidents, and Kurage, relations with Ariadna are seemingly in tatters. Haqqislam distrusts Ariadnas motives and their actions and remain concerned for the future. Panoceania - Growing stronger. Panoceanian command proved to be trustworthy and loyal comrades in Wotan and Kurage, and in Wotan proved they could remain on course to protect Humanity even when attacked by other forces. Yu Jing - Was a neutral stance, but with their growing partnership with Ariadna, during the Kurage Crisis, Haqqislam High Command is keeping a closer eye on their movements. ALEPH - Decidedly neutral. There have been occasions of strong partnerships and enmity equally. While Haqqislam will step in to defend the Nomad Nation from Aleph attacks, Haqqislam has no desire, nor wish to attack the AI. Tohaa - Remaining strong. Tohaa command has proven to be strong, and reliable allies that can be called upon, or to assist. Combined Army - Enemies of humanity. Be on the lookout for Shasvastii infiltrators in your neighborhood. O-12 - Unknown relation at this time. NA2 - Determined on a per company basis. Japanese Secessionist Army - Neutral. Overtures of diplomacy were left unattended. This year, High Command will be taking a different stance at the beginning. While Haqqislam would prefer diplomacy, we will be more aggressive. Our targets remain in debate at this time, and when the forums open we will be reaching out to all commanders on their opinions and requests until a new High Command is elected and installed. The new High Command has every right to overturn this original stance for another of their choosing. Haqqislam High Command is made up of four individuals. Three Commanders, and an Adviser. The Adviser is there to step in if one of the High Commanders is unavailable for a vote, and to provide an additional insight into a conversation. All positions are nominated and voted for by you all, the Swords of Allah. When the forums open, one of the first topics that will be provided, will be a nomination thread. This thread will be open for 72 hours. During that time you are free to nominate anyone including yourself as a High Commander. There are NO REQUIREMENTS. If you feel you could make a good High Commander, then nominate yourself. After 72 hours, a new topic will be made to vote on that nomination list. This voting will take place over 48 hours, and each individual will have one vote to cast. Again you may vote for yourself or others. The individuals with the most votes will be the 4 assigned to High Command. This campaign is for fun and is a narrative event. While the system has its issues, namely the conquest style, it is what we have, and the enjoyment of the campaign is directly derived by you. If you are looking for a bad time, you will have a bad time, if you're looking for a fun time, you will have it. The people who gain the most enjoyment from these events drive their own narrative within the bounds of the campaigns structure and story. I do not want to get into the debate of "is this a good campaign or is it not". It simply is a campaign, and I want as many people here to enjoy themselves as I can. It is a month of fun narrative writing and battle fighting. Please be sure to stay honest, fight fair, and report fairly. You can have an engaging and interesting narrative, even in defeat. Haqqislam is known for their cooperative and fair community, and these are the standards we will hold all Haqqislam commanders to. Support each other, and provide for each other. Defend Humanity! Inshallah!
