Title: Battle Of Fornovo (1495) - Domains At War
Post by: PeterRobbins on June 21, 2020, 08:56:07 AM
In case any of you wish to take part in the Battle Of Fornovo (1495) using the Domains At War : Battles rule system,  I've done a quick overview of the battle as a tease:
  I will be running it Saturday June 27th from 9AM to Noon Eastern USA time.  It is a very simple epic level system using numbers of attacks, to hit and AC found in most d20 based rpgs. You will be surprised at how good it can depict epic level battles at this scale. Easy system to pick up on. Anyhow, any takers, just let me know. I'll be GM'ing it very much in DEMO mode, so don't feel that you cannot play if you've never heard of the rules. Easy to play.

They were designed as an extension to the ACKS (d20 based) rpg system. They do handle fantasy units and heroes (individual characters as generals/commanders) but the core system is rooted in DBA, BattleLore, and Armati all mixed together and tailored to latch on to the ACKS rpg system. It also comes with a Campaign book to handle duchy, prince and kingdom scale warfare in a campaign world.

I am using Domains At War: Battles -

and it's Guns Of War expansion -

It combines together into a very nice pike and shot era epic level quick play wargame.
