Tactics - Unofficial Rules
Written by Rafael de Bois et Guilbert   
Tuesday, 15 September 2009

I always thought that the Bretonnian army should have their own scouting unit. So after taking some inspiration from older army books (1991 and 1996 ones to be precise) I dare to post my own version of how such unit could look like:

Tactics - Unofficial Rules
Written by Sir William   
Friday, 26 June 2009

Sir Robert von Bergen is 220 points. 

Sir Robert is rules a small fief near the Grey Mountains. His lands are often threatened by orcs, so he spends his summers leading a small army against them in the mountains. One summer, Robert was walking to a stream and encountered a bear. He managed to lure it back to his camp with some food, capture it, and "tame" it. It has now become his constant companion in peace and in war.

A.T.T.A.C.K.! Assaulting Thoughtfully: Tactical Advice for Charging with Knights.  

These articles are an attempt to give beginners and intermediate players some tools with which they can improve their playing skills, in the form of basic principles and maneuvers you can use with your cavalry.There is a ton of advice on the net about how to write army lists, and on which units to use against which opponents, but very little of it shows you how to do that, so I decided to make some diagrams. 

Some of it is more for competitive games, some of it is more general. If there are longer bits of theory, I will put the conclusions in big text so you can just skim over the text and still get the basic point.  

Hopefully this will be the beginning of a series (if life doesn't get in the way as usualWink).

The First Tale of Sir Simon, Knight of the Quest: The One-Eyed Brigand - Part One
User Rating: / 7
Literature - Various Stories
Written by The Red Cross Knight   
Sunday, 10 May 2009

I have a distinct feeling that, in many stories representing Bretonnia, questing knights are seriously underwritten. I mean, you hear how they must journey through perilous territory and fight epic duels against evil, but you never actually get to hear of their (surely awesome) adventures. So, I have taken it upon myself to write (hopefully, if they are well recieved) the stories of the adventures of a questing knight on his search for the Grail. Since a quest often takes a knight far beyond the bounds of Bretonnia, I hope to incorporate a lot into my settings. Questing Knights are perhaps given the most leeway in what they do.

And so the fate of Dante Marcel is decided as a troubled Maximillian decides which path he is to choose. Jean continues through the thick of the fight to find his brother, and Beregond continues through the fray of the fight to his goal.

Literature - A Familía D'Avis
Written by TheAdmiral   
Friday, 06 March 2009

Foreword

I’m glad you’ve decided to read the stories of the house D’Avis.  I hope you’ll find it as enjoyable to read as I found it to write. AS you may have gathered, the story is set in the south-west of Estalia, San Pedro del Sur, to be exact, just south of Belmoz, where the Reconquista RPG (found in the Guildhall of Wayfarers section of this forum) is set. Also, by the time of the Reconquista RPG, the family D’Avis will have disappeared from the Fazenda.I believe a few things have to be said of the story before you start reading. The most important thing is that I’ve decided to keep very close to history rather than GW canon. I’ve done this with a reason:  I found that if I included creatures like Skaven or Dwarfs as important characters, the philosophical and emotional value of the story might be lost, due to it no longer being an anthropocentrical novel.

Which leads to the second note. I wrote this story as a novel, and thus it should be read as a novel. I’m aware of the fact that it is difficult to read a novel from screen, and therefore I’ve requested the category ‘A Familía D’Avis’ (which is Portuguese for ‘The Family of Avis’), which allowed me to post it in chapters. Hence I advise reading it in chapters and not all in one go. It will hurt your eyes.I took my inspiration from various novels, stories and historical articles, but most notably from D.H. Lawrence’s 1926 novel “The Plumed Serpent”, which is a great read. I advise you pick it up sometime if you get the chance. I find that it portrays the (controversial) thoughts of the main characters very well, and the plot is also very interesting. However, the inspiration didn’t stop at the themes and setting. You’ll find that the style is also very much influenced by the book. Hence why this story is in third-person and not in first-person like a lot of my other work. I’ve considered using first-person, but in the end decided against it for the simple reason that the story is about a family and not a single person (and third-person obviously allows for easier switching between point of views). That was all I had to say really. I’d like to thank the Round Table for allowing me to publish it here, and especially Uther for helping me out when I needed help, both in terms of the Round Table and Iberian history and culture, which obviously plays a vital part in the story.

Arthur (TheAdmiral).
