Bernard Cornwell and Dux Britanniarum

I have always felt (and I think Rich has said) that the world of Dux does fit in very well with the Bernard Cornwell "The Warlord Chronicles" series (as well as the likes of Rosemary Sutcliffe's "Sword at Sunset").

With that in mind, a couple of things:

First, fans of the Cornwell books may be interested, if they have missed it, in the announcement that Epix have bought the TV rights. The fact that this is being produced by the same team as did the BBC's recent "His Dark Materials" series gives me a certain amount of confidence in the result, as well as hope it should be better than "The Last Kingdom" adaptation.

Secondly, I've been working on the Compendium, specifically battles, some more, and added a new Cornwell-esque pre-battle option to those already available. Like all Compendium stuff, it will be optional.


  1. Having recently read 'The Winter king', I found it a better read in many respects than Bernard Cornwell's 'Sharpe' stories. The characterisation seems to me a lot rounder, and I always enjoying seeing the physical settings as, in effect, characters in the story.

  2. Bbet99 as a trusted online soccer betting site provides a variety of online gambling games and soccer markets from the biggest league to the smallest league. do not forget that there is an Indonesian league which is more livened up to this gambling ball game you can get only at

  3. I remember reading it and enjoying it. A TV series might be interesting, but I havn't got to the end of GoT yet.
