A friend and me, we created a small program to generate campaigns for Pocket Battles: Orcs vs Elves.

Originally, this project was just for us, but we've worked so hard and it took us some many hours that we decided to share it.

Warning: This tool is absolutely not a professional one. It was only made for having fun, tell a story around a PB game and offer little more challenge into battles. We would love to have some feedbacks on PocketCampaign but we can not guarantee any support. If questions come up often, I'll try to answer, but as this project meets the expectations we had at the beginning, I don't want, for now, to spend more hours on it.

In any way, I hope you'll enjoy playing Pocket Campaign and that will allow you to get out more often PocketBattles from his shelf. And do not hesitate to send us the results of your most bloody campaigns !

Finally, as my English is not very good, I had to resolve to offer you a partial English version. Everything you need to play has been translated (I hope... whistle) but many texts in french are still presents. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Pocket Campaign is a small campaigns generator for PocketBattles : Orcs vs. Elves.
It will provide all that is necessary for an infinite number of wars in six successive battles.
Will you play the invaders launched in a big forced march? Or the defender playing a war of attrition ?

Go ! Go ! Just print and play !

Works well with ubuntu/wine :)
I haven't check the print menu yet...
Very good idea, for a very good game !

EDIT : I've checked the print menu, it works under ubuntu 12.04/wine, you can also print in a ps file if you don't want to waste paper.

Again, great stuff !

This is excellent!

The English translation isn't perfect, but it's plenty good enough to understand.

A really nice gadget.

I'm still working on it (especially I hope to find a courageous translator who can give me a little help).

Merci beaucoup Ben ! 66

This is absolutely great!!

Thank you very much!! thumbsup


P.S. You'll have to print the campaign in order to watch it at a readable size. You can print it to a .pdf file if you don't want to waste paper. For this, you can use a program like Pdf-Creator.

Yes, it's a print and play tool. The onscreen version does not shows the rules, event tables, etc.

Merci beaucoup Chema ! bag

People around seem to absolutely love it!

How likely do you see having also a version for the other pocket battles games? Celts vs Romans and Macedonians vs Persians?

At the beginning, I had also thought of it. But the 2 other games deals with a real historical context. And I think a big part of the charm of Pocket Campaign is in the names, places and imaginary battles. The players who practise these 2 versions would certainly be outraged by my boldness if I dared to invent around these historic periods.
That said, almost nothing prevents to use PocketCampaign with these two games. It just requires some adjustments.
Finally, I thought I heard about a version about the American Civil War which is being prepared. An adaptation in this context could please me more !

Merci beaucoup DarkSOuL sauron
