The Anglo-Danes

Roster after losing against the Norse Gaels, Campaign Season 1

Campaign Season 1

Invading the Norse Gaels in Rheged

Aarold led his men across the borders of Rheged into the land of the Norse Gaels. His men were fired up with enthusiasm. The fact that other warbands were attacking the same enemy this Campaign Season was proof of the weakness of Leif's men. The rumours that they had beaten the invading Scots earlier that year did not change their opinion; the Anglo-Danes merely scoffed at the failure of Clan Tavish, who were evidently even weaker, and advanced with even greater determination.

Meeting the Norse Gaels at a mountain pass, a great battle was fought, and the Norse Gaels proved themselves again, seeing off Aarald's invading force, who retreated back to their own lands in disarray.

Aarold's Warband invades Rheged, but loses Defend the Pass against the Norse Gaels.

The Anglo-Danes were not only unlucky on the field of battle that year. The weather was bad throughout the whole of Britain, and the crops failed. So it was that the Anglo-Danish army returned to find the people starving, and grain had to be imported to feed the people at cost to the royal coffers.

The Anglo-Danes roll Poor Harvest on the Fate table at the end of the Campaign Season, and they lose -1 point of wealth. Because they now have only 1 Wealth but 2 units of Warriors on the roster, one of those Warrior units is temporarily dismissed. This is the unit that does not carry the War Banner.
