Scenario Name: A Shadow over Burghead

Scenario Description: It is April 20th, 1746. The Battle of Culloden went terribly wrong for the you, the Camerons of Lochaber. Your noble chieftain, Donald Cameron of Lochiel, has fled and your kinsmen lie slaughtered and unburied after a fools charge against merciless guns. Thousands of clansmen captured or killed, you fled the battlefield carrying the Chieftain’s son. Pursued by relentless redcoats, you have struck eastwards toward the sea. Perhaps you can steal a boat and flee to the north, or even across the wild seas to France. Cold and hungry, you have somehow both evaded capture and reached the shore. There, a small fishing community awaits you. Small, squat cottages with turf coverings seem like palaces to you at this time. But are the clansmen of Burghead sympathetic to the men that followed the fallen banners of the Bonnie Prince, or are they more likely to be tempted by rewards offered by Cumberlands redcoat army. Only time will tell…
