Thank you. The 'devil is in the details' in reproducing these battles as FoG scenarios. There's a lot of information, much more than I originally imagined, on many of these. Alarcos and Tarifa (Rio Salado) are two good examples of the abundance of primary sources and dedicated researchers who have written extensively and with penetration on these historical battles. If I got anything right with Alarcos is because I stood on the shoulders of giants, to paraphrase Sir Isaac. :wink:

And btw, welcome to FoG, emilianojimenez. That is, unless you're an older regular member signing in under a different registration.

You're very welcome then. We have the historian thing in common. And this is the right place to view history from the gaming experience. Or gaming from the history experience. The update version of FoG that we've been anticipating will no doubt make it even more interesting in future.
