Next post, I will try to do a battle report, with either of these rule sets: Knights & Magick by Heritage, or Song Of Blades And Heroes. Havent decided yet which to read up on. I used to play Knights & Magick, so that would be easy to brush up on. I would prefer to do Song, but I would have to wrap my head around a new and unfamiliar ruleset.
