Designed by Alex Buchel of Studio Tomahawk, SAGA Age of Crusades is a period/ setting supplement for SAGA skirmish same.
The immersive game lets you play out the conflict between two or more Warlords and their bands of trusty retainers. With this supplement to the Saga rules, you can set the action in the time of the Crusades.
In 1095, the princes of the west answer the Pope's call, take the cross and travel to Jerusalem to liberate the Holy City from the hands of the infidels.
In 1147, the same call goes out again and turns the might of Christendom against the Baltic shores where Europe's last pagans thrive.
On the Iberian Peninsula, Spanish Christain Lords resume their attempts to reconquer the lands the Moors have ruled since 711.
For more than two centuries, these unprecedented military expeditions will see kingdoms and cultures rise and fall. Great champions will lead their nations through heroic battles whose consequences will be felt for decades.
SAGA Age of Crusades is a SAGA Supplement that covers the wars of faith fought in the West and the East from the First Crusade to the Mongol invasions from the East.
This book comes with 12 sturdy cards "Battle Boards," one each for the 12 factions covered in the rulebook (Crusaders, Saracens, Military Orders, Mutatawwi'a, The Spanish, The Moors, Teutonic Knights, Russian Princedoms, Baltic Pagans, Mongols, Later Byzantines, and The Poles.) The Battle Boards are at the heart of the rules and mastery of them is key to success in these easy-to-learn, a lifetime to master rules.
Please note SAGA Age of Crusades is NOT a stand-alone game - you will need the SAGA Rulebook as it contains all the basic rules for SAGA.
Also, SAGA periods/settings are 'self-contained' and internally balanced so while you can play against factions from the SAGA Age of Vikings or SAGA Aetius & Arthur, you may find some matchups one-sided!
