my suggestion is to have a 2 part map.

you have a strategic map (probably of europe so you get ALL the ages (china and japan skipped enlightenment stage. japan went straight to industrial revolution!)

on this map you use your leaders to resemble your "armies" ( give the leader an army put the army in a bag or something)

each territory is worth X amount XP (first X is a variable)

when 2 armies enter the same area you have a battle. during any point in time units may retreat from battle (YOU HERD ME!)

retreating units must leave the table edge. have a turn limit untill reatreat (turn 3 then retreat.)

come up with a research chart (i research heavy artillery FTW!)

battles are normal brick wars however people can buy castles to fight on like Bonn-o-Tron.

I made a 16x16 map of the Galaxy, with each stud representing a habitable star system. The idea was that the winner of each battle could decide where the next battle would take place (with studs chosen Risk-style ahead of time). Obviously I'm not going to play 256 games, but theoretically, it would work...

I am a big fan of computer strategy games (Age of Empires, Warcraft, Command & Conquer, Starcraft, etc.), so much of my inspiration for such campaigns (as well as the units I build) comes from such games.

If you need inspiration for a Civ-style campaign, I would suggest looking at a guide/walkthrough for a good strategy game (like the ones I mentioned above).

If you can come up with some system for resource harvesting (and possibly converting resources to CP), let me know.

FAIL first post is a necro!

to even out the fact that spacemen with laser rifles beat people wth sticks make the sticks cheaper than the rifles and ta da you have a mass army of stick weilding dimmys and 5 people with laser rifles.

SUCCESS apparently people still want to talk about it.

I don't know why everybody's against thread necroing. I'm a lot more offended about people posting with nothing interesting to say than by how many months they waited to add their two cents.

BOT (back on topic):

I built a LDD Portugal strategic map. A small one, a medium one and I am going to start building a big one today.
