We run Scenario I: A Taxing Afternoon from the Lion Rampant rules, we didn´t have any major changes, but a unit would be able to collect more than one taxtocken, and the hoast collecting them would get the Glory and not his allys to, But all retinues on the winning side woulr earn 2 extra Glory. It was all played on a 120x120cm table.

Tax tockens, 3 wagons and 3 heards of pigs was placed in the small village just waiting to be collected...


...and of they go, arriving from all directions the poos people of the willage could not save any of their harvest of heards...


As the Kings men had performed bad lately...the King had decided to overlook the Tax collection in persone....


The Kings Brother Erik also wanted his fair share of the taxes... sending his swift mounted crossbowmen in to the village and the beer wagon...


Women and children was running away from the approaching soldiers... The foot serjants from the House of Roos quickley snatched a wagon with flour...


The Rebells was the first to secure the village looting several of the houses and taking what not belong to them...


As the rebells pillageing the village the Ulvåsa Knights charges along the main road...


The Kings knights thought it was a good ideea to ride around amongst the barns...


The remaining Ulvåsa Knights chasing the rebells that still had the Beer wagon in their possetion...


On the other side of the village the two brothers King Birger and Duke Erik hade meet up in a fight amongst brothers...


i´m the King ! ...NO i´m the King ! ...NO NO i´m the true King !!! ...

quarrel amongst brothers... ended in single combat...and King Birger had to see himself be humiliated by his younger brother... you are still not the true King ! he shouted as his bodyguard brought him to safety...


The Kings Knights would try to save the day...


...but was a moment later shoot to pieces by the House of Roos Archers...

It once again all ended in disaster for the Kings men... Earning his rebell brother Erik 10 Glory and the House of Roos 5 Glory...

  15. Thanks for a great write up and a jolly nice gaming session.

    It was great to finally get to field Birger and his host in a "proper" game, or two as it were, even if the first one was somewhat of a fiasco. However, in the end all was good and the king's men could at last feast on some well deserved pork and beer.
