I am delighted to say that after some delays the Twilight of Divine Right rules and two scenario books have been published.
The rules cover the period 1618 to 1660 and are based on the concepts of the Twilight of the Sun King Rules (http://www.wfgamers.org.uk/resources/C18/Twilight/ToSK.htm). One scenario book has 10 ECW scenarios, the other has 12 TYW scenarios.
More information on the Twilight of Divine Rights rules are here – http://www.wfgamers.org.uk/resources/C18/Twilight/ToDR.htm
Each is £12 or £8 if you are a member of the Pike and Shot Society and are available here (it is not listed as I write but is available and will be listed soon) – http://www.pikeandshotsociety.org/
Alternatively they can be picked up from the society stand at many events.15/12/2018 at 15:54 #105821hammurabi70Participant
I have been following the links for:
Twilight of Divine Right: Europe’s Tragedy: Thirty Years War Scenarios
Twilight of Divine Right: By the Sword Divided: English Civil Wars Scenarios
I cannot find anything about them other than they provide scenarios for the rules. Presumably, they are actual battles of those wars but which ones? What do the books have in them in terms of detail?15/12/2018 at 18:32 #105841
The list of scenarios are on this page http://www.wfgamers.org.uk/resources/C18/Twilight/ToDR.htm
The ECW ones are –
Lansdown Hil, 1643
1st Newbury, 1643
Cropredy Bridge, 1644
Marston Moor, 1644
2nd Newbury, 1644
Knocknanoss, Ireland, 1647
Winwick Pass (Preston), 1648
The TYW ones are –
White Mountain, 1620
Alte Veste, 1632
2nd Nordlingen (Allerheim), 1645
The intention is to release at least one more TYW book, a ‘Eastern’ wars book with Polish/Muscovite/Ottoman battles and a post TYW book (1650’s to 70’s).
The rules are aimed at doing large battles relatively easily – so most are 1 vs 1 games playable in a single gaming session. Units are rated for tactics, quality, weapon ratio, special abilities/qualities (like having regimental guns or commanded shot). If you are asking can they be used for other similar rules sets then yes they probably can, assuming the set you have in mind has the appropriate period type – unfortunately not all do. You could use them with other sets but with more work.
I hope that helps.16/12/2018 at 14:50 #105881hammurabi70Participant
It certainly does! Some good AARs would too!16/12/2018 at 15:30 #105884
On the AAR’s I am will post up some stuff on Lutzen 1632 we did a while back. I am afraid that generally my group isn’t good at AAR’s. None of us can use a camera and we just get caught up in the game 🙁
