Battle of Cornwall & Last man standing melees

On the 2nd of August 1595 300 Spanish Arquebusiers under the command of Carlos de Amésquita landed in Cornwall England. In two days the Spanish burned Penzance and the villages of Mousehole, Paul and Newlyn. The local militia of several hundred men under the command of Francis Godolphin, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall threw down their arms and fled in panic while the cities was razed by Spanish troops.

BUT WHAT IF IT HAD HAPPENED DIFFERENTLY?

In our scenario Francis Godolphins militia troops do not flee and go head to head with the Spanish troops in a limited rez battle to save the Village of Mousehole from being razed and by doing so protecting the other villages of Paul and Newlyn.

The English can win in this scenario by:

  1. Burning the four Spanish landing boats (removing their ability to Rez).
  2. Eliminating all Spanish troops (each team will have a limited number of resurrections for the team).

The Spanish troops can win in this scenario by:

  1. Burning the four buildings in the Village of Mousehole (removing their ability to Rez).
  2. Eliminating all English troops (each team will have a limited number of resurrections for the team).

Each team will have a limited number of resurrections for the entire team. The boats and buildings will be the resurrection points, and have a number of flags at each location. When each boat and building is burned, that resurrection point and its remaining flags are taken out of play

Which side will you be on?

There will be a 3 man melee bearpit previous to this scenario that will be used to determine which side fighters will be assigned to. If you feel especially inclined to fight on one side or the other, the marshals will do their best to accommodate you but understand that we will also be making an effort to even up the teams as best as we can.
