Having dispatched their erstwhile allies, the holders of the toe of Saint Pius had enjoyed little of the expected prestige. Instead, they found themselves harried by their defeated foes from Sorviodunum, recovered now and seeking cold vengeance and slavering at the chance to get their thieving hands on a holy relic. So now, with the smoke of their home cooking fires drifting on the light westerly breeze, the holders of the toe just had to make it across one last stretch of wilderness to home, hearth, and a stout palisade.
This is the third 'after action report' of the Relic of Saint Pius campaign, the full details of which can be found here.
As the victors of the the battle of the stone circle, Aethelwulf and his Angles took the role of the defender in this scenario. The attacker was the Romano-British warband of Flavius Constans.
The only survivors of the Angle-apocolypse. Perhaps the Anglian champion will one day be able to make a name for himself and attract more followers but for now, the power of the Angles in the land of the Belgae has been broken. The battle at Constan's Ford will, for generations, be a byword for British resistance and general ballsiness.
