    Hello all,

    So the saga campaign start date will be 4th April.

    Each month people can log 2 games as their official campaign games. These games will start at 4pts in April, May we will use 5pts and June (the final month)will be 6, if there is enough interest we may possibly end with a weekend event.

    We will be using the map of Britain as the campaign map. Each player will be given counters to represent their army’s influence on the map.

    Every army will start with one counter on a location (province) that best suits their historical claim over Britain, of course some armies may end up in illogical places. The province you start in counts as your home territory which is important for determining the victor of the campaign.

    How to control provinces:
    Win a game: you may place 3 counters on any one region of the map.
    Draw a game: both players may place 2 tokens on the map, they have to agree on the same province, if they cannot agree the province is randomised.
    Loose a game: you may place one counter on the map but it has to be in the same province as the player who defeated you or your home province.

    The player who has the most tokens in a province counts as having undisputed control of it.

    If two players have equal amount of tokens on the same province it counts as disputed control.

    Critical locations:
    Londinium
    Caledonia
    Caerleon
    Eboracum

    Rules from May-5pt warbands, Mercenaries may be taken in your army.

    If you have undisputed control of any critical location (barring eboracum) your army may take an item from the back of the Viking age book.

    Home ground: if you have undisputed OR disputed control over eboracum you are automatically the 1st player.

    Stretched too thin: in your game if you have undisputed control over more provinces than your opponent you get – 1 saga dice for your first turn (this means that if you are the 1st player you will only generate 2 saga dice)

    June rules-6pt warbands
    You may take named heroes to lead your warband.

    Winning the campaign
    At the end of the campaign each province you have undisputed control over will score you 5 points, disputed control will earn you 3 points, if you have at least one counter in a province which is controlled by another player you have a minor foothold and score 1 point

    The player with the most points wins the crown!

    Sign up with your intended army below

          I’m hopefully in but my rules and models haven’t been dispatched yet. Anglo Danes when they arrive.

            Hey Carl

            Any space for some Norse Gaels hanging out in the Isle of Man (or somewhere 🙂 )?

            James,

            Yes you can join, you can control the final free province, which is Ratae.

              All good then, although why the Norse Gael would invade Leicester is a bit of a conundrum 🙂

                It’s quite simple. Clearly these mean were attempting to invade North Wales, but the Wicked Welsh, being a deceitful and dishonourable people, have switched all the road signs around, and so they have become quite lost.

                  So, what’s the faction line-up looking like?

                  I count, confirmed-

                  1*Welsh

                  1*Anglo-Danes

                  1*Viking

                  1* Somewhat lost Norse-Gaels

                  That leaves 4 unknowns, 2 if I guess that Seb would be a second lot of Vikings and Carl would be the Romans from Aetius & Arthur, but I’m not confident of those guesses.

                   

                  Also just checking, but it seems that a game can be logged as an official campaign game by one player but not the other?

                  For example if I win against players A and B but then lose to player C, I can log the 2 wins as my official games and player C can still score our game as a win even though I’m not counting it?

                  Johnny is Normans

                  Seb, Chris and Mark are all vikings

                  I’m Romans

                  If you play more than 2 saga campaign games in the month then your first 2 games count only. Your third game will not count as a score (but can for your opponent if its their 1st or 2nd campaign game of the month). This means people are not penalised for not being able to play every week or want to play other games as well as saga.

                  Due to garrison being closed on the 4th, I will bring the map in on the 11th, to kick off the campaign.

                  Who wants to take on my Romans !?

                    So-

                    1*Welsh

                    1*Norman

                    1*Norse Gael

                    1*Roman

                    1*Anglo-Dane

                    3*Viking

                    OK folks. With the hall being closed again this Wed I will postpone the campaign to start in May. I know some people wanted a bit more time to get to grips with the rules anyway.
