Relics for DBA Campaigns
By Jim Wright
Way back in my college days my friends and I fought for possession of the "Holy Cow", a little black and white plastic cow worth a buck or two. Lots of fun and bragging rights involved. Now lets put our collective mind to the task of making a list of RELICS with a twist for use with the standard DBA Campaign rules.
Put RELIC names on pieces of paper. Put papers in container. Draw one piece of paper for each player. These players are the owners of the RELIC on the paper at the start of the campaign.
Each RELIC starts with the owning player's army wherever the army starts the game.
Each RELIC is captured by the army that defeats the owning player's army in battle or seige.
Certain motivational or even magical powers can be ascribed to RELICS in advance.
RELICS are moved with the army and they must be present on the battlefield to have an effect.
Some possibilities include the Ark of the Covenant, bronze idols of various sorts, the Holy Grail, a piece of the True Cross, the Holy Lance, the banners of St. Cuthbert and St. Peter (displayed against the pagan Scots at the Battle of Durham), the Byzantine ikon of Our Lady of Blacherne, the Raven banner flown by the sons of Ragnar, the heart of Robert the Bruce wrapped in the banner of the Black Douglas' and carried on Crusade, etc.
Not So Historical Relics
Notes: ALL REROLLS - The reroll must be used. You cannot reroll a reroll.
