With the coming implementation of online Yak systems for Mordheim and Gorkamorka this year, I'm going to need some assistance from experts. My baby was always Necromunda and I don't have hardly any play experience with Mordheim unfortunately. Do you consider yourself an expert? If so, would you like to become Professor of Mordheim for YakTribe?

What are the requirements?
  • Must have played Mordheim considerably during it's initial release
  • Have some knowledge of the additional resources and campaign settings (Khemri? Lustria? etc)
  • Understanding of official, unofficial and experimental classifications as well as supplement terms like A02, TC, LotD etc.
  • Deep knowledge of the rules and errata as well as warbands, main scenarios and pre/post-battle systems
What will your role on YakTribe?
  • Moderation in the Mordheim area of the Community for managing threads, stickies, keeping information current, maintaining conversation flow and offtopic in discussions.
  • Main contact for me and final decision maker for component design and implementation on YakTribe itself
  • Possible lead and editor for a Mordheim Community Edition (MCE) at some point in the near future
What will be your pay?
:ROFLMAO: ummm.... prestige? A free T-shirt when they're made?

If I've only played empire in flames and with warbands from lustria and khemri does that count? Will also have to re-read the post/pre bits again to refresh myself (yay, bedtime reading).

Also My main worry is the community edition bit, I really dont think i'm up to the task on that (although will happily contribute/help proof read etc). If someone else wants this role then go for it, otherwise I'll do it til I'm killed or you find someone better....

I'd love to take this on, I'm a big mordheim fan and I reckon I could swing a stick around too, but I'm off in a few months and I don't reckon I'll be getting much internet time for a few years (not as much as a position of that magnitude should warrant anyway).

I posted it on the forum, I usually use, when talking about Mordheim. It's a german one, mind you, but there are some guys that know Mordheim very well.

I run a small online league atm using BTB; I got my start a few years back playing /TG/Heim. The local scene isn't too hot for anything GW atm, as an aside; the LGS dropped all Specialist Games nights when GW removed the rulesets online.

I play Mordheim on and off and have most of the books. My knowledge isn't encyclopedic but I may be able to answer a few questions if folk have them. I'm not as active on Tom's Boring Mordheim Forum as I used to be, the guys from there would be great to draft in over here if they had the time.

I have experience with the core game, plus Empire in Flames and Border Town Burning (have a couple models in the colour section of that and did a small amount of the proof-reading and FAQ questions).

Only downside is lack of time so I may be a bit slow to respond at times. I'll see what I can do if you still need help though.

I'm finalizing the remaining roles for Necromunda and Mordheim when I start vacation on July 4th, which is also when I'll be integrating Gorkamorka tools into YakTribe. If any of the folks here are still interested at that time then I'll be sending out offers for the role.

Yeh I'm expecting to be working on a schedule of 3 months work, 1 month off. I'm assuming the worktime will have evenings of some online time as well, but it won't be too much, as it's friggin' Africa, who wants to be online if you can listen to lions roar. But there might not even be internet at all, I really don't know as I'm not too sure where I'll end up working at all.

Dude don't go and get ebola on us. I'm hoping to have 3 people for the task since invisible not everyone can be active all the time so if you're up for it and willing to put in the time sometimes during your working period then one of those positions is yours.
