A fantasy megagame for 40-60 players, set in an alternate timeline where Edward VIII didn’t abdicate and yet still married Wallis Simpson. Following the resignation of his government, Oswald Mosely is now prime minister and after a breakdown of discussions and economic unrest the country has fragmented.
The armed forces have been riven by dissent following the dissolution of certain elements of the Household Division and opinion is strongly divided on who should sit upon the throne. Sensing an opportunity to keep Britain pre-occupied during increasing European tension, various third parties have lent support in the form of advisors and materiel. The four main factions were the Royalists, British Union of Fascists, Socialists and the Anglican League.
For creative inspiration, look to Richard III with Ian McKellen, Went the Day Well?, Things to Come’s Battle of the Coalfield, with a dash of Roderick Spode's Blackshorts.
