The Monday night group have been playing a multi-player Dux Britanniarum campaign for the better part of a year now. The campaign is based on the map of the South West of England (there's a surprise) that you find in the rule book, with 3 nasty, smelly, uncouth and hairy Saxon warlords doing their best to kill/enslave/drive out the resident civilised, polite and cultured Romano-British people.
The record of battles and current standings after 6 turns(months) are as follows.
Paeda (Colin) 6 raids, gaining an Emperors Ransom(9) in loot, a unit of skirmishers and 2 extra warriors. He is about to "buy" promotion to the next rank. 43 kills, 38 casualties
Oswald (Nathan) 2 raids and 2 defeats, gaining a Patricians Purse(4) in loot. 18 kills, 25 casualties
Egric (Zob) 4 defeats in 6 months, with no profit gained. 37 kills, 50 casualties
Meilir (Andy) 1 win and 2 defeats, gaining a Beggars Bowl(1). Meilir was captured by Paeda and has to be replaced by a new Lord. 32 kills, 30 casualties
Constantine (Me) 3 wins and 1 defeat, gaining a Tribunes Tribute(3), a Priest and a unit of skirmishers. 56 kills, 34 casualties
Erb (Panjo) 2 wins and 1 defeat, gaining a Tribunes Tribute(3). 25 kills, 34 casualties
Colin is currently walking away with this campaign, although his losses have been quite heavy. He always seems to manage a win in a decisive combat, which then forces the Britons to retire in an effort to keep their losses down.
He has also been sending out "The Saxon Times", a write up of his victorious engagements, from a purely Saxon view. I have created an extra page to put these on as they can be quite long, so please pop over there and have a look.
There are only 2 turns of this campaign year remaining and Colin has been checking up the siege and battle sections of the rules, so expect big news to come soon(ish).
