Field of Glory is an Ancients/Medieval wargaming rules set that I enjoy playing. The game inspires me to research and build new armies and that keeps me going. If you have read the front page, you will have seen that the group I game with is currently advocating a shift to the French set ADLG. I am not interested. I will play some games to help my friends get the numbers they need for their tournaments but my interests lie elsewhere.
To that end I have decided to devote my attention to a new project that I call FOG 300. This is a fast play FOG venture that uses the existing rules as a basic framework and works on providing a playable small version of FOG. This blurb is from the introduction:
Glory 300 (or FOG 300) grew out of a frustration with the publisher’s lack of
ongoing support for the system and efforts in the American gaming community to
adopt a DBMesque hybrid that in this person’s opinion is a step in the wrong
direction. This supplement will attempt
to present a viable fast play alternative using the existing official FOG
products with slight modifications but still provide a satisfying gaming experience.
The basic army lists use the Allies Lists for each army from the FOG Compendiums. Where necessary, I will create ally lists for those missing ones. Italian Ostrogoths and Later Picts are both lists that needed one and I have created drafts for them.
That is all for now. More will come as I have time.
Rules for FOG 3.0 - Rules and Ally lists have been updated to be FOG 3.0 compliant. I hope to get in a few more FOG 300 V3 playtests soon.
