About the Author

Peer Sylvester started his career in boardgaming quite early, because his dad needed an opponent in chess. In third grade he wanted to become a professional chess player. Instead he turned out to become a teacher for math and chemistry. An award-winning board-game designer, including titles such as The King is Dead and The Lost Expedition, he has written a number of books on the subject. Benoit Billion was born in Nantes, France, and was from a young age fascinated medieval history and illustrated manuscripts. The art, the costumes, the architecture, and the heraldry of this age has always served as an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Benoit, and the celtic, romanesque, gothic, and renaissance styles formed the basics of his apprenticeship. He has produced illustrations in traditional mediums for local societies, musicians, publishers, advertising agencies, public institutions, and museums.

A nearly perfect game, now presented at its most beautiful. * Tabletop Gaming Magazine *
I enjoyed the Second Edition because it has all the good things I found in the previous edition, plus with more game modes now, more replay value, and more variety. * Marco Omnigamer *
It feels like a classic game. * Board Game Barrage *
