At an impromptu game-day over the holidays, I ran a 6-player Lion Rampant game set in Italy, 1498. It is designed to encourage back-stabbing and treachery, and is generally good fun. (Not an historical battle, but at least I did a little research on the background!)

You can find the scenario:

Better link for the PDF. There was a rogue ")" at the end of the above link.

Looks like a fun scenario. May have to try it sometime in the future.

A suggestion -- In the force descriptions you label the Sforzas as A, the Borgias as B, and the Orsini as C. But in the set-up descriptions, the Sforzas are in C, the Borgias are in A, and the Orsini are in B. Personally I would have made the set-up locations the same as the force description sub-paragraph letters.

I think is more correct Santa Maria della Vittoria.

My bad – I use the ones given in the set-up.

As for my Italian – well, I stand corrected! (I do not in any way know Italian!)

Maybe you can help: How do they say "The Holy Mother of ____" in 15th century Italian, anyway?
