"The reason the American Army does so well in wartime, is that war is chaos, and the American Army practices it on a daily basis." - post-war German General's debriefing

Desiring land, the Welsh plan to follow up their successful raid and invade the Norse-Gaels in Strathclyde.

Roster after the invasion of Strathclyde, Campaign Season 3

The Invasion of Strathclyde

After landing on the bleak coast of the land of the Norse Gaels the Welsh made their way inland, steadily uphill, finding their way through the craggy uplands of Strathclyde. As they progressed they realised there was only one way through these mountains, and they were not surprised to find an enemy warband blocking their path at a narrow pass in the distance. They had no choice but to attack.

The Welsh advanced into the pass, taunting their foe, who were reluctant to advance beyond their defensive positions. The enemy could not take the insults without reacting, and their hearthguard, Dane-axe armed warriors and javelinmen were drawn inevitably into the killing ground.

Supported by the relentless shooting of their levy archers, the Welsh fought off the enemy. The Norse Gael warriors approached the archers, engaging them and cutting them down, forcing Caradog himself to charge into the fray to see them off. And as the enemy fell back, Caradog led his men through the pass and on to claim this land for his own.

The Welsh win Hold the Pass against the Norse Gaels. They gain +1 Campaign Victory Point and +1 point of Land as Caradog gains control of the province of Strathclyde. The Welsh lost 2 levy and chose to recruit twice on the random table at a cost of 1 point of Wealth. They recruited one warrior with the first roll and seven with the second, for a total of eight, six of which were retained on their roster.

Roster at the end of Campaign Season 3

For his fate roll at the end of the season Caradoc rolls Warlord Experience and gains The Penny from the Special Rules table. The Welsh now regain the point of Land temporarily lost because of Famine & Flood during Season 3.
