I did make two chnages to the scenario for this game. First, players could not change sidesonce they declared loyalty. Second, because we had eight players, the mercenaries were assisgned to players and then aligned to one of the royal contestants rather than being up for grabs by all.
The rules were the usual home grown set and worked so well that we managed fit two games in during the day.
Below are a series of shots from the day.
