Wolsung is a strategy board game that simulates urban conflicts between miniatures representing extraordinary gentlemen and ladies of the early 19th century! Shadow organizations and dark forces seek to resolve their disputes with knives and guns rather than dialogue.
We live in amazing times, where the industrial revolution has changed the map of the world! In Lyonesse, the best city in the early 19th century, the sky is filled with airships and steam-powered automobiles have flooded the streets. Elven aristocrats are scheming, strange scientists and engineers work day and night to create giant factories and thinking robots.
