Well, this seems inevitable so let's start talking about it. ;D

Who would be interested in taking part? And what kind of campaign would you be interested in?
1) A series of standard, 50-point games where we just keep track of players' winning records. This would include a mix of scenarios, not just Death Races.
2) As above but escalating points values. So 50 points for the first game, 60 for the second, and so on up to a 100 point finale.
3) A full-fledged campaign using the rules from Miniature Wargames (rules attached). This includes vehicle damage, winnings and so on but is more complicated and involves some book-keeping.

So? Any thoughts?

Added a poll to get people's opinions and to save me from having to count things.

Poundland - £2 for 5 cars! They are held together by screws, not riveted, so easy to dismantle for modifications.

Right then, decision made (sort of). I'm going with option 3, by virtue of the fact that nobody voted for "not option 3". We don't have a campaign on the 2nd Monday so we can go with that, starting on June 11th.

I'd like to get a list of everyone who actually wants to take part so let me know. You'll need a 50 can team to start with, although it may grow (or shrink) as the campaign goes on. If you don't have vehicles I'm sure someone can be persuaded to loan some out, but the benefits you get in the campaign for having converted and/or painted vehicles will only apply if they're your own. :P

The televised event schedule will be as follows:
June 18th: Death Race
July 9th: Zombie Bash
August 13th: Death Race
September 10th: Capture the Flag
October 8th: Death Race
November 12th: Saturday Night Live

Note that the nature of the campaign means that if you miss the campaign night, there won't be an option to catch up on the televised event. But people can fit in as many wasteland skirmishes as they want in between the televised events, and there are balancing factors in the campaign to keep everything competitive.

I'll put together some updated roster sheets and dashboards to allow people to track the extra information for their vehicles (dents, injuries etc) I'll post them here once they're done. Also check out the Gaslands downloads page for the FAQ and other bits.

I think that's everything. If you've got any questions, ask.

I've put together a campaign roster for people to use, it covers all the new details necessary. It's enough for 4 vehicles, the campaign maximum is 8 vehicles per team so worst case you may need two sheets. After looking through things again I've realised that there's no need for new dashboards, the existing ones will work fine.

As far as I know, the following people are signed up for the campaign. If I've missed anyone, let me know:
Me
Mike
Tom
Dan
Chris
Andy M
Adrian
Dave

Sorry I am going to bale on this as I still do not have any cars or the time to sort it out.
