Lion of the North


Lion of the North try to reflect the tactical combat of the Thirty years war, but can easily be expanded to cover other conflicts around the mid-17th century. The rules aim to give a quick game with simple mechanics, that can be easily memorised. (Long lists of die roll modifiers are therefore avoided, instead different dies are used.) They have evolved during some time, and use some crucial ideas borrowed from other rule sets, among others the ubiquitous DBA.
