"The Fate of Reiters" is a grand-tactical simulation of French Religion wars that occurred in France from 1562 to 1598. Unsing the same game system than By Shot, Shock and Faith, it recreates five battles of the era between Catholics and Huguenots on area-maps.
The art of war during this period of the Renaissance is rapidly changing. The great feudal landlords, steeped in morals, fight alongside mercenaries motivated by sole cupidity. The diversity of the weapons that are used offers great tactical possibilities, based on impact and fire. Gendarmes, cuirassiers, reiters, harquebusiers, lansquenets and Swiss mercenaries confront each other in a merciless fight.
Compared to the previous opus, the graphics of the counters have been revised to improve their readability.
Henceforth, a Combat Rating inside an orange triangle denotes a unit armed with shock weapons (pole arms, etc) while a unit that fires at close range has its Combat Rating inside a yellow disk.
