Ran into some references today to the arrest/kidnapping of Pius VII in 1809, which evidently was a serious commando-style operation with ropes, ladders, axes and locksmiths. Has anyone ever done this as a skirmish/RPG? Or seen a detailed account? Looks as though this would have game potential, and might be played in a number of periods.

No politics, please.

I ask for historical details, and all I get is trendy game titles. Typical.

First I've heard about it but should be easy to build up any parameters you want. The interesting and different idea scenario is the key thing.

Song of Drums and Shakos would handle it nicely. Now, where can I get a 28mm pontiff?

There is at least one book: link From the preview on Amazon, it may have a fairly detailed account.

Actually I think WRG's Fire and Steel would be better than Gloire.

I've always wondered why the front jezzailchi was there having lost his legs below the knee.

I always liked it when there were two popes, it gave a man a little leaway.
