Thoughts on a Kingdom of Soissons Campaign?

Postby GunnarL » Tue Jun 20, 2017 9:27 pm

Does anyone think that you could do a campaign during the rise of the Franks? It was a Roman rump state led by the last remaining Imperial Romans in Gaul and it only collapsed after the loss of the battle of Soissons to Clovis, which was the end of any major power structure in Gaul outside the Franks.

Due to the kingdom's small size and the short time period, it could make a fantastic campaign, but I'm unsure of the scale of conflict. It outwardly appears that the conflict was mostly raiding, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of info in an easy search.

Do you mean the Syagrius campaign in Belgica II? Clovis et al?
It would make a fantastic campaign especially with the Armorican bacaudae and such. We played a few separate games using these forces but no campaign as of yet. For some reason the British campaigns are more alluring to the majority of our players. Not having a dedicated range of Salian Franks may also be a factor.

Yeah, hopefully Footsore or Saxon will make some at some point. Otherwise I'll have to use Goths and other German tribes.

I'm afraid I read Kingdom of Saucisses, so I was ready for a Banger vs Bratwurst campaign.

Brats would obviously win there, of course. Not much of a campaign. :-)
