BRITAIN (635 AD)
A DBA Campaign-Style Tournament

The collapse of the Roman province of Britannia drew
Germanic migrants from across the Channel and propelled native peoples around
the British Isles. The arrival of the Anglo-Saxons started a period of struggle
and decline for the native Britons. At the same time Gaels from Ireland settled
in western Britain, adjacent to the Picts. By about 635AD, the Angle kingdoms
of Bernicia and Deira united to form the kingdom of Northumbria, and then sought
to dominate the north. This period of conflict provides the historical context
of the campaign.
The format of De Bellis Antiquitatus (DBA), with its small
battlefield and short playtime, makes it ideal for a three or four round
tournament where army movement on a campaign map determines the game match ups.
Two campaign scenarios are provided -- for six or eight players. The
campaign can easily be expanded by adding new Welsh, British, Irish and/or
Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms as long as there is an even number of players.
