We want to organise our Tribemeet gaming weekend for likeminded fans of Necromunda NCE edition.  This will be the third such event we've organised between us and it is gathering momentum.  We need to raise cash to pay for the room and some top-notch resources that the event deserves - professional looking rules packs, and prizes for competitions ranging from best gang to most sporting/fun player. This Kickstarter is to finance the event, allow us to purchase enough terrain to run a much larger event in future and generally extend the reach of the community.  Without your pledges this can't go ahead, but if this event succeeds with your support we will be doing this at least twice the size next year!

Thanks for taking the time to read our campaign, we are massively looking forward to seeing you in Nottingham next year!

Join fellow Yakkers in Nottingham on the weekend of Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March 2019 for the Yaktribe event of the year.  We’ll be playing a bespoke Necromunda campaign using the NCE rulebook (see the bottom of the campaign for a link to the latest rules) and a gripping, bespoke campaign devised by the most fiendish minds from the Yaktribe, er, tribe.

Join the tribe!

Tribemeet 2019

The Scenario

Hungry for a fight?

Fury's Rest is usually a dense warren of bustling manufactories and hab blocks... but then the Scavvies came.  Showing unusual coordination and guile, they have seized the dome entrances, cutting off food supplies and hoarding the goods for themselves.  Gangs of the underhive once fighting for territory and reputation now scramble amongst the streets and wastes for food, desperate to survive.  Civilians who a month ago were tireless and productive - by underhive standards - now grab whatever they can wield, prepared to fight, kill and die for the chance of a scrap of food.

Can your gang survive with what little food available soaring in price?  Will you raid the food stocks of the guilders or turn to cannibalism eating your captured & slain enemy?  Will you fight alongside the priests of the Ecclesiarchy, purging the heretical cannibals from the face of the hive?

One thing's for sure, if you're hungry for a fight - there's only one place to be!

The venue will be at the 2017 Tribemeet location - Best Western Long Eaton. Battle over 4ft x 4ft gaming tables packed with beautifully arranged terrain.  Due to the available space and amount of terrain places at the event are limited, grab your ticket while you still can.  If this campaign is successful there will be a bigger room and space for more in future - we want to grow this into a big annual event!

Risks and challenges

This will be the fourth Yaktribe event we have managed as a team, and we’ve learned a little something each time. Our main challenges will be getting all the printed goods together. This is why we have set a fulfilment delivery date target of March 2019 - your rewards will be delivered before the event, most likely within 4 weeks of the campaign end, however, with items coming from up to 4 different suppliers to a central hub to be re-packed and sent out, we'd hate to make a promise and deliver late, we’d much rather deliver early.

Our main risk is through real-life interruptions! Previous events have had a small team organising the event, with a lot of financial risk and time pressure carried by one or two people. This time the team is larger, with a lot of the financial risk being mitigated through this very campaign! We’ve learned from mistakes of the past and are in a great position to drive this event forward.
