It's OTT Weekender time! We cry Deus Vult and look to the Barons' War Outremer as Warren asks if the Crusades is the best period for people to start historical gaming with.  On top of that May seems to be the Month for FREE Rules so if you're interested in BOT WAR, DEADZONE, or World War II night raids then we have you covered.
