Marcellae 792 AD Scenario

Post by kilroy1 » Mon May 13, 2013 2:18 pm

In 792 AD the young Basileus Constantine VI led a Roman army into difficult terrain to battle the Bulgarians near the border fortress of Marcellae. The Bulgarian Khan secretly deployed part of his troops behind some hills on the Roman left flank, and attacked after the Roman troops had advanced past them. The Romans suffered very heavy losses and lost their baggage train including the imperial tent.

There is very little information on this battle. I found a map on wikipedia, but I do not know the source. The numbers are conjecture. The Roman troops on their left flank begin the battle Disrupted to simulate the Bulgarian surprise attack. The Bulgarian player must be aggressive in multiplayer, because the Romans can win this...

Thank you kilroy, I particularly like 'non-linear' scenarios - those in which it is not just another setup with one troop line facing another flat troop line. Good that you found a historical battle that represents this variety.

Kilroy, a question: how did you manage to edit those Thematic Byzantine Roman units to render them as D (disrupted) right at the onset of the game? I've tried doing this in one of my own scenarios and even tried the html notepad but couldn't find a way to key them as disrupted.

I've just played several games with this scenario, kilroy, and it's a varied and exciting game, well-balanced. Replayability factor is very good. Great use of terrain.
