I've played several games of WoW/G but am thinking about moving into campaign play. I've seen several home-brewed rules across the net, but is there one that most find to be the 'best'.

I don't have time to playtest 3-4 different campaign rule-sets on my own to see which I like best, so am willing to take the consensus.

Thanks!

My vote is for the "Knights of The Air" campaign from www.wingsofwar.org (see the files section).

I'll look those over.

Oh, btw, I only assume that campaign rules are house-ruled. There aren't any official ones are there?

No official campaign material exists for Wings of War or Wings of Glory. Official scenarios were included in the backs of some of some of the Wings of War rule booklets (all of those can be downloaded from Fantasy Flight's "support page").

A new scenario PDF is available from the downloads section on the Ares Games site, made available for the release of Wings of Glory. All of the official scenarios are / were "one shot" games, designed around a theme or objective. I suppose you could string a few together. Using the ace rules from Wings of Glory, you could start a pilot progression where you "level up" as time goes by.

A couple of WoW scenarios are actually made on more than one session: there are some where you first recon a set of targets, to discover which ones are decoy and which ones real, and then in the next game you go and bomb them; there are bombing scenarios where you simulate the flight to the target, the bombing and the way back in three different sessions. Not real campaigns, but anyway not just "one shot". That's the majority anyway.

I guess like like long games so much they turn into one-shots

Thanks for a better explanation Andrea

one would have assumed, given the emphasis on Ace pilot skills in the new Wings of Glory box laugh
