How To Play the Lost System Campaign
Hey all! i made a list of questions that will, when answered help you get to grips with the system of this campaign.

Q: What will need to join in?
A: You will need…
1) A Youtube Account
2) A 40k Army from 400 pts +
3) A opponent
4) A method of making video uploads
5) Registered member of the thelostsystem youtube group

Q: How do i post a battle?
A: Simple! just follow these easy steps…
1) Play a game of 40k (any points size with any expansion)
2) Record aVideo Battle Report of your game
3) Upload your video to your youtube account
4) Go on thelostsystem group and post the url of video on the Planet “topic” you wish the game to take place in
5) Done!

Q: My opponent/ gaming group doesn’t like their games slowed down by battle reports – does that mean i cant be involved?
A: Of course not! If that is the case, make a written battle report and just read it out onto a video – or come up with a more creative and entertaining way – aslong as the report is a video upload.

Q: I dont have regular opponent/ gaming group to play games with, does that mean i can’t be involved?
A: Wrong again! I dont want to exclude anyone, people who cant psyhically play games can still make a difference in the war, via the “Support System”..
This system works by sending a private message via youtube or email to the player you wish to support and myself (adamishyrwude@hotmail.co.uk) – this must be done before the player you wish to support plays his next game. Once the game is played that player must annouce on his battle report which players are supporting him (by youtube username) – if he wins the victory is multiplied by the amount of players supporting the victor..
For example: Adam is playing against Ian, Adam is supported by John, Ian is supported by David and Henry. Ian wins so instead of his victory counting for 1, it counts for 3 – well done Ian, David and Henry!!!
The principle is that a supporting player has to be savy and think hard about whats player to support in what situation – so enough tactics to keep you guys happy! Also if you wish to read out a narrative report of how your army supported the player – Brilliant!!!
However if i dont get a message alerting me of the support or i do and the player being supported doesnt – than the support doesnt count, sorry!

Q: Is there a limit to how many of my armies can be involved?
A: No, you can use as many different armies as you want, but please send me the background (adamishyrwude@hotmail.co.uk) so it can be put on this site.

Q: Can i create planets for the lost system?
A: Hell yeah you can!! Please just write your description to the same format as the surveys on this site and send them to me with your name so you can be credited for your hard work (adamishyrwude@hotmail.co.uk)

Q: Will this campaign progress?
A: Most definatly, roughly once a month i will make a video, explaining a overview of the current state of the war aswell as battle awards for players when they play their first game of the month.
Battle awards will be awarded for good solid victories, innovative tactics (in or lose) and brave and honourable defeats – basically do something that makes me (or other admins) think “WOW!” or “Nice one!” than your on good stead for a battle award. These awards will be one use special rules (ie: free stragtagems) – and you have 1 month to use them (i will notify players who run out of time) – when you use them you must annouce their involvement in a game at the begining of the report.
Right i think that is everything covered, if you have anymore questions, just ask away!
