The City of Worcester 1938 - AVBCW Reboot.

It seems movie reboots are all the rage with the likes of All quiet on the Western Front, Escape from New York and even Starship Troopers planned for the next few years.

Why not a reboot of a Wargames campaign?

The Spanish Civil War is high on the agenda over at the Wyverns so whilst we all motor through our club purchases from Empress, time to fuel the passion for all things 1930's with a revisit to the city of Worcester in 1938 - Last played some 4 years ago (shocking.....)

With the King residing in the County at Madresfield Court, Worcester has stuck to it's long held motto of "Civitas in bello et pace fidelis" - The City Faithful in War & Peace.
The City maintains a moderate pro government stance with reluctant support from the regular royalist forces and local Worcester City police.
Whilst largely peaceful as the crisis in the country unfolds a number of opposition groups have sprung up, notably armed elements from the Severn Riverside, Wharf, Labours Federation (SRWLF) with an enclave in the diglis area.

This group is supported by communists out of Birmingham and armaments being shipped over the Malverns from the Anglican's based in Hereford.
To counter this the BUF have positioned Garrisons at Wyche Cutting and various high points across the Malverns.

Various local militia's hold their own parish boundries, largely compliant with local officals and Police.

How long the City can remain faithful remains to be seen. 

Stay tuned for the latest report from the front.
