    • Adventures in America

      Europe is aflame, gripped by religious wars, rebellions, tyrannical Kings and revolting peasants. Meanwhile, across the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean, lies the New World, offering the promise of freedom from state, and religious, oppression, and riches beyond the dreams of men. The great powers of Europe spill across the Americas, clashing with one another and tribes of barbaric natives as they each seek to claim for themselves the untold wealth of this new continent... and kick the shit out of the Quakers, obviously!

    • Adriatic Campaign


      1807 - Following the Wars of the 3rd and 4th Coalitions, and the ensuing complete Russian withdrawal, France is once more in control of Corfu and other Ionian Islands that secure the gateway to the Adriatic. This opens the door to French expansion into the Balkans.


      Austrians, Prussians and the British move to intercede before France can establish a bridgehead on the eastern shore while Spain, still smarting from the reversal at Trafalgar, support the French.


      With Naval movement comes the elimination of traditional front lines in the conflict. Instead it's a game of cat and mouse, rarely fought at greater than company level, as each side tries inflict costly blows while preserving their own forces for the greater battles that are sure to come.
