If so, I can easily have a history that fits my character for either America or the Old World.Treebore wrote:I consider it to be in the same time period, but not a direct part of the Napoleonic Wars.DMMike wrote:So, regarding American characters...are you counting the War of 1812 as part of the "Napoleonic Wars"? ....
