Campaign Background



Tides of invaders arriving daily to the shores of Britannia. Saxons, Jutes and Angles invading the weak kingdoms of the Britons.

Aelle joined Angles and Jutes kings in an alliance. Beron is the most powerful king, with more than 30,000 men under his command, and over 6,000 to Drythen Krisvk orders. But other kings and lords, as EAFA or Arius, also feature thousands of men.

They have joined with the men who brought Aelle across the sea. Their advance in britons lands covered by several kilometers. In its advance, they leaving villages burned, and bodies for the crows.

The situation has reached a crisis point. Arthur Pendragon has gathered all the men who brought Dunmonia, and allies of the highlands. He is moving eastward to meet to his enemy.
But they are just a few thousand men, too few.

Arthur depends that Romano-British of the old kingdom of Regia and the Britons of Aetia come to your call.

The Dux Ballista has a some thousand men, and Romano-Regia is still a powerful kingdom, despite losses against the Jutes received. It also has Murtagh, a Warlord, which has caused many losses at Anglo kingdom of Mercia. Or Wulfbruk, the last survivor of the fall of the kingdom of Lundein.

Aetia is a young state, forged by a jute who has join to the Britons. It is still a weak state, but their king, Aetius, has fierce warriors, veterans of a thousand campaigns.



Maps and info



Historically: In or around 500-520 AD, the Romano-British kings joined together under a Dux named "Arthur" and inflicted a severe defeat on an invading Anglo army command by Aelle at Mons Badonicus that stopped Anglo-Saxon expansion for the fifty or more years.

Will history repeat itself? or we will change the past?

your 18:00 are our 22:00, right? 22 isnt good hour, I could try if you are punctual, I mean, we can begin battle at 22:00.
However, it depend of rest players can play or no that hour.

GMT +1 is 9 hours ahead of me (might be 8 due to Daylight savings time stuff), and because I have school now, I don't get home until around
16:00 here which is like 24:00/1:00 GMT +1 . I will only be able to attend on Saturdays and Sundays.
Alternatively, if I'm the only person who can't make it, it's O.K. if you all play without me considering the problems I've caused before.

Also, perfect music for this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YkC-lgdKeU
(Since it's our apocalypse for this campaign)  :mrgreen:

Hardly. Wardruna is a Nordic "exploration of the runes".
But what am I saying? I just linked LOTR music.  :roll:

Aye, it's relevant at least to one side and sounds badass! And come on, kauna means 'wound' and 'fire', that's pretty damn relevant to the fate that awaits you guys :wink:
