A Sample of the coming Tannhauser Mythopoeia


Union, The

Is a conglomerated alliance of nations centered on the United States of America (where it derives its name), the Union is made up primarily of the U.S.A., the former British Empire, and Mexico. It uses a republican form of government consisting of a President as its leader and Congress as its representative branch. Its primary military force in the Great War is the Army of the Union.

The Union Flag is a blue field with the symbol of the Union embroidered on it. The symbol of the Union shows a stylized globe at its center (indicating the Union spans the world), around the globe a pair of stylized wings (possibly drawing from the American eagle symbolizing freedom), and near the bottom are three stars (presumably to represent the three founding nations The U.S.A., The British Empire, and probably Mexico).

Yes I know Mythopoeia is misspelled on the title page.

Veteran's Day. Tannhauser Token

Here is the next token in what is going to be a series for as many holidays as I can do till New Year’s Day.

The Blue Star Flag:


The Blue Star flag was designed in 1917 and is typically displayed through the window of the homes where a loved one is on active duty. The number of stars placed in the white field indicates the number of currently serving members. Knowing someone is waiting at home can be a powerful motivation for soldiers in the field.
Thanks to the aura of hope to return home alive, this item awards four Bonus Points, to be used only by the character carrying this token, these can be used like Victory Points.
Bonus Points are not exactly like standard Victory Points. If they are not used during play, they are lost at the end of the game and subsequently not counted for victory conditions.
