1. International Tabletop Cup Franconian Open DBMM „Nero is (almost) dead,
who is next? Rome in the years 67-72 AD“
Friday 14. – Sunday 16. July 2023
After the death of Nero the Julian-Claudian dynasty came to an end. In the aftermath begins a reform process of the Empire und more than one of the great families hoping to get a chance for Caesars Throne. However, as said in a simple television series: If you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.
In Rome itself there are four different groups looking for the empires throne. Although in history they did not start at the same time with fighting each other, we will not take it to serious here.
Beside the intrigues of the Roman elites, we will not forget all the countries around looking what is going on in the empire and that the inner conflict weakens the outer borders. The barbarians awake and scent the smell of independence, some successful uprisings or just a number of prosperous raids. This is where we start.
[Karte des röm. Reiches 69 n.Chr.]
We play DBMM 2.1 with the actual Commentary; each armylist consists of 400 AP. The chosen armies have to be in the selected period. The chosen armies have to be in the specific period of 67 -72 AD. The CinC needs a name (just a name), if he falls in battle his brother or son will lead the army in the next battle. Each army may use all allies of the selected timeline. All stratagems are allowed. Army Points invested for stratagems are specified by selecting the stratagems for any specific game at Deployment (1), page 22. Selected stratagems are noted down with the deployment. E.g., a player who spent 10 AP for stratagems may use Feigned Flight (10AP) in game 1 and Scouting (5AP) plus Guides (5AP) in game 2. Maximum two stratagems per game.
Generating terrain:
In the usual way both players generate the terrain for the game. Additionally defender and invader lay each one (additional) street. First, the defender lay it from North to South, keeping 1000 p distance from the corners, the invader from West to East, keeping 1600 p distance from the corners. At the crossing, the defender lays a city (½ FE, will be provided by the organizer).
Game duration is 3,5+x h. Game end is sudden. If a Player is dicing for distant or close combat, this bound will be finished. Further action is not allowed. Calculating the winner of the game is according to the DBMM rules.
The following extra points can be achieved:
The opponents CinC was killed in combat: 5 points
The only occupier of the city at the end of the game: 5 points
