Friday AW war
scenarios

1)     Open field battle for a warm up.
Archery, no res.

2)     Open field battle, No archer, no
res.

3)     Battle between the boats and the
castle.

A)    1 res, no time limit.

B)    No weapons over 6 feet.

C)    Archery allowed.

D)    Siege weapons allowed

E)    No fighting over the fortifications walls,
Causeway has no walls.

F)    There will be 2 causeways between the boats
and the castle. This is how you go between the two. In addition
there will be some open field in front of each stronghold to fight
in and 2 openings to get in.

G)    Objective – capture the commanders and
bring them to your side. Commanders may fight but may not die. Once
they are surrounded they must surrender. Commanders may be fought
over and won back. Once the commander is inside the fortifications
he is considered owned and the battle is over.

H)    We do it again, with no archery.

4)     Town battle – once again we will be
bringing back the town battle that people loved so much from 2
years ago.

A)    Archery allowed ( not through walls ), no
weapons over 6 feet, siege weapons allowed

B)    There will be an odd number of buildings
(determined by how many hay bales we have ). Battles will be fought
in 10 minute increments for control of the area. There will be five
10 minute battles. At the end of every 10 minutes the battle will
stop and control of buildings will be counted. The side with the
most amount of buildings at the end of the battle will be the
victors. After each ten minute battle, once the buildings are
counted, you will fight from where you were at the last ten minute
fight.

C)    Control of buildings- at least one of your
fighters must be firmly inside the building. A foot or arm will not
do. You must have a body fully inside.

D)    Contesting a building- you may fight
through the doorway/opening or inside the buildings. You may not
fight through the walls and arrows will not go through the walls…
siege weapons will.

E)    At the end of each 10 minute battle, if
 there are combatants from both sides in a building it is
contested and un owned by either side. Once again, it must be full
body, a hand or foot will not suffice to contest a building.

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday AW
Scenarios

 

1)     Open field for a warm up.

A)    No res, archery allowed, siege weapons
allowed, no war point

2)     Open field battle

A no res, No archery, no siege, no war point

3)     The meetings of the Commanders. This
represents the Vikings coming ashore and setting up terms for trade
or raid

A)    5 man champions’ battle- negotiations have
broken down.

B)    Only one person per side may have a weapon
over 6 feet. No archery, no res, war point.

4)     Siege- The winner of the five man
battle gets to siege the loser’s fortification.

A)    There will be one opening in the
fortification ( castle or boats )

B)    May not fight over the walls,

C)    Archery into and out of the opening
only

D)    Defenders- no res

E)    Attackers-2 res

F)    No time limit, war point

5)     Capture the commander

A)    As per Fridays battle, war point

6)     Monastery raid

A)    Archery allowed, siege weapons allowed, no
weapons over 6 feet. War point.

B)    There will be an odd number of buildings,
each containing English soldiers and a treasure chest

C)    Half hour timed battle, unlimited res, war
point

D)    Rules for fighting in the town- archery
allowed into and out of buildings through the opening
only
, shooting through walls will not kill. Siege
weapons will kill through walls. No weapon over 6 feet.

E)    Defenders are to protect the buildings and
the treasure chests.

F)    Attackers are to steal the treasure
chests.

G)    Burning the buildings- the attackers have
the ability to burn down the buildings. If an orange flag is placed
on the building it is considered burning. Flags placed and still on
the hay bales at the end of the scenario will signify a burned
building, spoils of war going to the victor. The defenders may
remove the flags during the battle by pulling the flag off and
putting it on the ground.

H)    Chests must be brought to rally point at
the back of the Viking side. Once the chest is in possession, but
not to the rallying point it can still be won back by killing the
carrier. When the carrier is killed he must place the chest on the
ground where he was killed. The chest is then fair game. If the
chest breaks open and the lot spills out, that is also fair game so
make sure to keep the chest intact.

I)      If at the end of the scenario
the English successfully defend a building ( not burning, contested
or missing the chest ) then they win that chest and may keep the
contents

J)     All chests looted by the Vikings are
theirs and may keep the contents of the chests.

7)     Race to the boats. With the English
army hot on their heels, the Vikings are racing against time to get
to their boats.

A)    No weapon restrictions, open field battle,
no time limit, no res. War point.

B)    Objective – Vikings- Commander must get to
the boats

                    
English- must stop them.

C)    Once the Viking commander gets to the boat
the scenario is over. If He falls in battle the scenario is
over.
