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

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