Sharp Johnny: Historicon 2017 Campaign Theme Event

Post by David Kuijt » Wed Mar 29, 2017 9:28 pm

Sharp Johnny: Time of the Free Companies, 1360-1392 AD

The Peace of Bretigny in 1360 didn't end the Hundred Year's War between England and France, but it did pause it. Large numbers of English and other soldiers became mercenaries and fought in the confused wars of the next 30 years. Some of these free companies were the Company of the Star, the Company of St. George, the Little Hat Company, and the White Company led by Albert Sterz and John Hawkwood, known as "Giovanni Acuto" or "Sharp Johnny" in Italy.

Now is the time when soldiers can rise by the might of their own arm and gain everlasting glory, wealth, and fame. Or betray your employers and violate your contracts to become notorious and feared. On the field of battle all will be wagered, won, and lost.

Many loaner armies are available, or bring your own army and register in advance here. TRIUMPH! rules are easy to learn; rules will be taught as needed. Young gamers are welcome, but anyone under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note that for this awesome campaign, the event is listed in the PEL which required tickets for participation. We listed it as an 8 player event (even though it is designed for 16, and we can expand to 24). We plan on having 8 loaner armies for ticketed players, but if you are bringing your own army and signing up on here in advance, you do not need a ticket.

Thanks,
DS

We haven't made up the loaner armies yet. And we won't make them until close to the event. So you're good.

Tim and I will get tickets because we'll need armies.

Tim would like the Swiss. I'd like the Burgundians, please.

Thanks!
