Test of Courage – Helpful Resources

Here we are again with another helpful page of resources! This time for War Banner/Footsore Miniatures upcoming game Mortal Gods – Test of Courage. You can find further information on their Facebook page, but we’re cramming as much into this Test of Courage resources page as we can! Before looking into the project I can safely say my knowledge of the ancient Greek world was limited to a few films exhibiting sketchy historical accuracy, as well as a handful books. I did a chunk of reading and picked up loads of useful information. So, a bit like the Test of Honour page I did I thought I’d try to compile some stuff and help people out. I’ll try to keep adding new bits to this Test of Courage resources page as I find them or others suggest them.
