As every general knows, it is not possible to raise an army without money.

The Swiss Houptmann Thomas Lang knows this simple truth very well. To keep his troops
well-armed and fed is not easy particularly after the last year´s defeat from his opponent, the
Burgundian colonel Philipp de Gris. That situation needs an energetic action.
But the Burgundian colonel has the same problem too. The Duke Charles pays irregularly and
even if he pays, the money is not enough. And mercenaries have empty hands all the time.
Those who have some money want to keep them safe from soldiers of both sides. This is a
case of abbot of a local monastery, which is surrounded by Swiss and Burgundian armies. His
head is full of ideas about how to protect monastery treasure.
