I hope you all had a safe and happy Xmas and are looking forward to the New Year. Thanks to stevie and ratsmitglied , I have a small offering for you to pass away the holidays, particularly if you have an interest in Dark Age England.
These are mapless rules to cover the period from the initial Viking raids up until the events of 1066. They are designed to take advantage of the strengths of DBA3 and require no special rules but you could certainly add whatever House rules you like (e.g. time and weather, random terrain, etc). Though centred on the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings, they allow for their neighbours to get involved without the need for extra players (though you are free to get as many people involved as you like). Design notes are included. I've deliberately designed them to play like a military history, concentrating on the significant battles of each period, rather than worry about resource management etc. There are obstacles for the leading player to keep things interesting and a mechanism for the trailing player to close the gap by killing the leading warlord of the period!
I hope you enjoy them and please feel free to provide feedback on this thread.
