Principali recensioni dei clienti
This alternate world is presented in rich detail with all the necessary info to adapt normal character classes to the setting.... we have an Unconquered Sun religion that thake the place of christianity, cleric can be only lawful, and social class is really important for characters.
The book focus on the island kingdom of England but we have a presentation of the ex Arcadian empire (the romans of this world), this means europe from Spain to Russia and the north coast of africa.
There is history and detailed geographical information. There are specification on races (only human admitted with man from cormyr that have elf ability and scots that have dwarves abilities), and a lot of other things to discover in this nice book.
The book is enriched by a very interesting appendix is the one from Dominique Crouzet that detail rules for using Fantastic Heroes & Witchery with Dark Albion (variant classes, variant rules and so on).

The introduction outlines the authors' basic premise of Dark Albion: The Rose War. It is "a setting in a quasi-historical kingdom very similar to that of 15th Century England." The author also states that he had been educated as an historian; and his knowledge of the period is truly remarkable - it is what makes this book such a great resource. At this point the reader is given several things to keep in mind ( a setting of ground rules so-to-speak ) and the differences between Albion and our historical world.
The Gazetteer of Albion describes the Government, Religion, Magic, Minorities, Technology/Warfare and Dangers/Adventure that are in the country. The tweeks to the History and Geography by the Author keeps things pseudo-historical, but the names, locations etc. are 80-85% historical and I had very little trouble identifying the fact from fiction. Next all the regions of England Albion are presented with the history and background of each region. Accompanying each regions' review are maps, notes, cities, towns and castle names and information along with prominent Nobles in the area. The information in this section is almost overwhelming but it is presented in a well thought out manner and will be easy to find the referenced information. I intend to use this information as background to my Imagi-Nation and the various mini-campaigns and situations that I am envisioning. I would say that about 85-90% of this section will be useful to the historical gamer.
There is a Law and Justice in Albion section that that seems to be a pretty accurate description of late Medieval times. I will be the first to admit that I am no expert in this area but again I would estimate 75-80% being an accurate description of Medieval Law and Justice but the section will be very useful to flesh out story details in an Imagi-Nation. Topics covered in this section include handling Law and Punishment, Secular and Ecclesiastical Courts, Law Enforcement, Prison, Trials, Trial by Combat, Torture, Punishments Fines etc. All quite useful Medieval stuff.
A History of Albion section is richly packed with a lot of historical background information about 80-85% historical and covers the period 1453-1485. This will help to provide great background context material for an Imagi-Nation.
There is a section on Currency and Coinage which can be used as is for an Imagi-Nation. There is also economic information that covers Medieval wages and the costs of Medieval living - along with the ever present Medieval taxation practices. A lot of useful Medieval history and fact in this section.
Rounding out the Historical and Imagi-Nation usefulness there are several tables of Medieval Name generators. They will be just the ticket for a mini fictional campaign in my War of the Roses Imagi-Nation. Tables are available for Anglish Names, Common Female Anglish names, Examples of Last Names for Upper Gentry and the Knightly Class, Scots Names - Male and Female and Last Names, and lastly Welsh Male and Female common names.
There are many other sections that are aimed at the Fantasy World that have concepts and ideas that can also be useful in an Imagi-Nation setting but that I will not cover here.
In conclusion I cannot recommend "Dark Albion: The Rose War" enough. It is richly packed with Medieval and War of the Roses information, gaming ideas and aides.
