A Scenario for Flashing Steel; Song of Blades and Heroes

It is Spring 1642, Civil War is brewing and the talk in London is all about rebellion and murder. The Queen plans to retreat to France and thence to the Hague to raise funds. Aware of her plots the rebellious parliamentarians have instructed the Earl of Stilton to capture her and hold her at a hunting lodge outside London. He has therefore slain her escort and is holding her captive awaiting further instructions.

A group Cavaliers carousing at a nearby Inn have received this shocking news. True Nobles and Gentleman all (well we don’t count Sir Richard’s servant Plank) they have ridden hard to her rescue. For the King! The Queen! They must rescue her and escort her safely to the Coast where her ship awaits!

The Campaign is based on that found in the Flashing Steel campaign book.

Mike played as the dashing Cavaliers. Despite having all their horses shot out from under them charging over the bridge our heroes won the day and escorted the Queen to safety.
