Nation Deck “Condottiere”

For use with Force of Virtue the Game, this deck allows you to build a customized band of mercenaries for daring raids in Renaissance Italy.

  • The condottieri’s primary tools are subterfuge and cunning, but they also sport strong knights from the noble families of Italy and have access to a variety of weapons. Other nations may attempt to win through brute force or skill at arms, but for the condottieri war is not a contest of strength but of guile. When fighting a condottiere trust nothing and no one, things are rarely as they seem.

  • Strengths - Variety of logistics cards, Honour Cards for knights, and Intrigue Cards.

  • Weaknesses - Sources of Virtue, Special Weapons Cards, Honour Cards for Mercenaries

Scenario Deck “Rise of the Borgia”

The gang conflicts of renaissance Rome are a unique setting, different to the open warfare of the Italian wars and in turn from the concerns of the power struggles of the German free cities, the treachery of the Wars of the Roses or the ruthlessness of the Ottoman Wars.

Our Scenario decks help bring the unique flavour of these conflicts to your games as well as giving your warbands more tools to solve the problems before them.

Set in the ruins of Rome during the Borgia ascendancy, Force of Virtue pits the merciless Borgia family and their adherents against the powerful families opposing them.

Rather than large battles, we wanted to recreate the chaotic and spontaneous skirmishes caused by a myriad of agents and retinues and their agendas as they bribe, extort and murder their way to prominence. Whether you want to represent the Swiss mercenaries of the Borgia court, the merciless agents of the Venetian Republic, militia forces of the Romagna pressed into policing the countryside (for better or for worse) or even covert force dispatched by the great powers of France or the Holy Roman Empire. And will you pursue your patrons interests, or risk their displeasure by furthering your own goals…
