Saga - and the Dark Ages

Just a quick note - we (myself and the members of ODMS local to Hampton Roads, Virginia) have been playing a lot of SAGA lately (2nd edition).  One of our members has even started a very nice SAGA campaign.

In that campaign, I am playing an Anglo Saxon contingent, with Wulfric of Kent as the faction leader.

But, one of the things that is exciting, is the rekindling of interest in Dark Ages history, within the club.

It got me to thinking about some of the early dark ages articles I wrote last year.  I am thinking of creating SAGA boards for some of them - based on some that do exist (some in Aetius & Arthur), such as the Franks, Goths, Carolingians and others.

Funny you should mention Saga. The Saga bug has hit our club as well. I played it several years ago during a convention and it didn't do anything for me, but I just picked up the rules and may join in, anyway. The group here is doing the crusades, but I personally would prefer the Dark Ages stuff (seems to me the entire gestalt of the system was/is grounded in Dark Age/Arthurian). Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for battle boards!

Ed - I hope your guys are having a good time with Saga. Our club has been playing a lot, and mostly in the age of vikings. It has encouraged me to finish up (and start) a few painting projects - so that is always good!

I'll try to post some pictures of my newly painted figures soon.
