429 A.D. The Life of Saint Germanus

It is a RPG (a single) inspired by medieval chronicles written by Venerable Bede, Gildas and Nennius.

The events take place in the 5th century England.

From Bede, A History of the English Church and People

A.D. 429. Bishop Germanus saied to Britain with Bishop Lupus. A Few years before their arrival, the Pelagian heresy had seriously infected the faith of the British Church. Although the British rejected this perverse teaching, they were unable to refute its plausible arguments, and wisely decided to ask help from the bishops
of Gaul. Their unanimous choice fell upon bishops Germanus of Auxerre and Lupus of Troyes, whom they appointed to visit the Britons.
The two bishops had sailed half-way on their voyage from Gaul when they were suddenly subjected to the hostile power of devils, who were furious that such men as they should
dare to recall the Britons to the way of salvation. Germanus called upon Christ and cast a few drops of holy water on the waves, directing his companions to join him in prayer. God heard their cry and their adversaries were put to flight, and they arrived safely at their destination.
The majority of the people readily accepted their teaching, while the authors of false doctrines made themselves scarce. At length they dared to challenge the saints. The venerable bishops then fed the torrents of their eloquence from the springs of the Apostles and Evangelists. The lies of the Pelagians were exposed, and unable to defend any of their arguments, they admitted their errors.
Germanus hen gave sight to the blind daughter of a tribune. He took some relics from the tomb of Saint Alban, and deposited relics of the Apostles and other Martyrs.
Meanwhile the Saxons and Picts joined forces and made war on the Britons; and the latter called on the saintly bishops for help. Strong in faith and fresh from the waters of Baptism, the army advanced; and whereas they had formerly despaired of human strength, all now trusted
in the power of God…
Having restored peace to the island and overcome all its enemies, both visible and invisible, the bishops prepared to return home.

That was history. As for the game, Bishop Germanus usually knows what to do. Just follow him and the instructions he gives. Keep eye on him - Saints are also mortal and may get into trouble in a strange land.

It is a part of a whole series of Early Medieval England campaigns which we hope to submit to your attention in the nearest future.

Any criticism would be much appreciated. Nothing we create is perfect,
but it is worth trying to bring at least something to perfection.
