  1. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 7.2 - Running the Campaign

    A General Outline of a 'To Sakovhim' Campaign

    There are three core stages to a 'To Sakovhim' campaign. They can be broadly defined as the 'Reconnaissance' phase, the 'Preparation' phase and the 'War' phase. These can be broken down as follows.

    The 'Reconnaissance' phase.
    In many ways, this is the simplest phase of the campaign. It is assumed that the game is set approximately ten years before the arrival of Strike Force Sigilus, the Inquisition's dedicated effort

    Integrating Player Characters
    Sakovhim is primarily a setting for Dark Heresy; as such, players will need to be carefully integrated into the game. At the point the 'To Sakovhim' campaign is set, Kepler 22b is technically within Imperial space, though it has been utterly ignored for the last three thousand years. Obviously, what is occurring on Kepler is heresy of the worst kind – humans living amongst Xenos would be bad enough, but humans actively sharing and assimilating Xenos culture?

    Cultural and Historical Landmarks

    The Ga'nhi Memorial Centre

    High Ethereal Ga'nhi is a figure of great historical significance to the people of Kepler in general, and the E'Krati in specific. A peacemaker, negotiator, and outspoken figure, Ga'nhi was originally one of the high council on T'au itself, until her questioning on the nature of what exactly constituted 'The Greater Good' was deemed too contentious. For daring to suggest that 'The Greater Good' was simply

    Transportation

    Albitern Memorial Central Station
    Originally simply named the Sakovhim Central Station, the name was changed a decade ago out of respect to the Bifrosti forces who fought on Albitern, as a sign of good faith from Phaelolaeum's government. The station itself is internationally famous, acting as the central hub for all gravlev and monorail lines through the whole of the continent. From the stations thirty seven platforms, citizens can travel to almost any other

    Places of Entertainment

    Entertainment in Phaelolaeum is largely a matter of class. Every species is different, but class determines the specifics. While it is fair to say that parties both polite and bawdy, evenings at the pub and nights in watching the Vid-screen are the most popular ways to pass the time, there are a number of other entertainments which have become popular across a variety of classes.

    Shopping

    A note on goods and services
    Within Phylolaem many goods and services remain illegal. Prostitution is illegal everywhere, as are narcotics of all kinds. Firearms are not allowed anywhere – even carrying the smallest pistol is a crime with a five-year prison sentence. Of course, prohibition will ever lose out to cold, hard, cash and whenever something is made illegal, someone decides to profit from it. Black markets thrive everywhere, especially in major cities. However,

    Religious Centres Within Sakovhim

    The Church of The Emperor In His Aspect As Redeemer
    Since the terrible wars on Albitern, worship of the Emperor is not generally observed by the Bifrosti as a culture. Of course, this is not to say that they are not a spiritual or religious people; merely that they are, by and large, secular. The Church of The Emperor In His Aspect As Redeemer, which stands at the end of West Street, is probably the grandest of the official Ecclesiarchy buildings

    Nightclubs Within Sakovhim

    There are over one hundred separate nightspots, clubs and bars within Sakovhim proper, running the full gamut of everything from absolutely top-class establishments where the drinks cost more than an average worker's yearly income, all the way down to the sorts of seedy sex clubs enjoyed by the very worst of the Dark Eldar. As an industry primarily driven by fashions, most clubs blink in and out of existence all-too-briefly, beloved by their patrons, lamented

    The Harrows

    Every major city can expect to have some areas of extreme poverty; the more powerful the city, the more extreme the poverty. The Harrows is the name given to an expanse of abandoned industrial ground given over to the Banebdjet and their people. Made up almost exclusively of poor quality housing, shipper containers rudimentarily converted for living, and factories repurposed as living quarters, the Harrows are terrifying at the best of times, a nightmare, borderline demilitarised

    West Street

    Sakovhim, like most cities in Phylolaem, boats a large population of students, and West Street is the area where they congregate. Despite its title, West Street is actually a borough, albeit a smaller than average one, with over 70% of the buildings owned by the University of Sakovhim, the city's oldest educational institution. The University itself has exceedingly lax guidelines about the kind of businesses it will allow within the confines of its properties, and as a
