For use with Force of Virtue the Game, this pack contains both the ‘Born to Battle’ and ‘Renaissance Man’ character decks. These character decks allows you to build a customised band of mercenaries for daring raids in Renaissance Italy.

Born to Battle

  • The great wheels of progress grind forward, but the sons of the nobility will not go easily. Bred to war as dogs to the hunt they are blessed with magnificent armour and the knowledge of countless generations. They stride as gods of war amongst throngs of foes.

  • Strengths – Excellent Honor and offensive cards for capos.

  • Weaknesses – Few strategic cards, few Honour cards for mercenaries.

Renaissance Man

  • A new age has come. A rebirth of light and reason, of the teachings of Greece and of Rome. With this rebirth come breakthroughs in science, medicine, engineering and even tactics and strategy.
  • Strengths – Good variety of command cards for capos, good support cards to help interacting with objectives.
  • Weaknesses – Few strategic cards, few Honour cards for mercenaries.

And will you pursue your patrons interests, or risk their displeasure by furthering your own goals…
