The narrative above was generated using the Bloody Barons "Events" system. This generates unique engagements and a large element of unknown in any engagement in this period. My opponent had pressed for the attack committing 21 dice out of 25 to attack. I had opted for an even handed 14. Poor rolling on his part meant I was the attacker but with a poor advantage. Only two Lancastrian units were going to be late, one opposing my right flank, and one in the Centre. My left flank would be evenly matched.
The rest of the events produced a range of results.
His Bribery and Subterfuge meant that his spies were very effective and my right flank general (3) was swapped with the left (1) to offset the advantage of only facing one unit to start with.
Scouting and Supplies were both inconclusive
Loyalty went my way with one general receiving -1 on his motivation rolls until motivated by another general. Looking for a bit of "Somerset persuasion" with a battle axe.
Order of March went the lancastrian way and my opponent nominated my Household unit in the centre to be pushed back two widths. Again hoping to offset his late arriving retinue unit.
Royalty went my way with a re-roll of one generals rating, so as I couldn't do worse than a 3 anyway I rolled for the new right flank general coming up with a 1 so the advantage on the right swinging back my way.
In summary I am the attacker with 7 units facing 5 on table with 2 defender reinforcements. My left flank is evenly matched with the opposition, The centre is slightly out of line with the Household being behind the rest. Hopefully I can get the alignment sorted out before his Household can do too much damage. My main hope is the right flank where I outnumber him 2:1 to start with. His reinforcements match my attacking disposition so this will be an evenly matched engagement.
