Show the Colours is a forum-based play-by-post roleplay game set during the Napoleonic Wars. The game has two main RP areas: at sea with the Royal Navy aboard HMS Terpsichore, a frigate of 32 guns, and on land in the Peninsula with the British Army.

This wiki gathers together information useful to StC's players and interested readers. Some of the material is based in fact, such as the setting itself and the histories of the regiments represented and some is based in fiction, such as our characters and anything to do with them specifically.

Welcome to the Napoleonic Wars.

The year is 1809. Armies are on the move to fight battles that will decide the fate of nations. This is a world at war.  From battles at sea to skirmishes on land to the secret fact-finding missions of spies of both sides, there is danger at every turn.  There is friendship and camaraderie, too.  But the clouds are gathering.

Where do your loyalties lie?
