Father Tilly: Campaign



Father Tilly: Campaign is a game supplement for the Father Tilly rules that allows players to fight a series of connected scenarios within their chosen phase of the Thirty Years War. These new rules show the effects of campaigning on the players armies and the rewards for the victorious and the penalties for the defeated.

This supplement also introduces some of the wider strategic events that occurred in Europe at the time of the war and how these impacted on the combatants. For instance, the granting by the Pope of massive subsidies to the emperor Ferdinand II, harvest failures in Germany, the Dutch capture of the Spanish treasure fleet, the Peace of Monzon, the Sack of Magdeburg, the death of Gustavus and the civil wars in Britain. Depending on which phase of the Thirty Years War players choose, each turn they will be faced with one of these strategic events and will find that their army either benefits or suffers from its implications.

Also included are a number of familiar campaign elements such as ways of improving the profiles of generals and units as they benefit from their successes on the battlefield (and of course a way of penalising the unsuccessful). Players can also employ a number of "campaign assets" between battles such as forced peasant labour, hostages, control of imports, scorched-earth tactics or a number of other useful methods of undermining the opponent.

Players will be able to use these rules to run campaigns with either the big-battle Father Tilly rules or the Escalade skirmish rules.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
