There are a number of reasons for developing this campaign setting. One is that it’s enjoyable imagining what if, which is why I’ve gone to so much detail. However, I also wanted a situation that would allow me to use six of my armies, which required Anglo-Danish to be around with post-Norman Welsh, Welsh who have adapted to knights. Another aim was to create a scenario in which the Anglo-Normans were less powerful—a divided England achieves this. This gives the six players a greater semblance of parity.

I’ve tried to use the names of actual leaders, but the more research I’ve done, the more I’ve had to realize it’s pure fiction. The ‘King of the Isles’, for instance, at this stage was the King of Norway. Therefore, it must be that Northumbria has occupied Norse attention, allowing the Kingship of the Isle to slip out of their control.
