Mutiny in 1626 is a Battle for Wesnoth campaign set on the planet known as E29.

As of this writing, it is a campaign the continuation of which awaits the determination of what actually happened “next” on that planet. An examination of the disposition of Freeciv scale units in and around the areas important to the storyline makes it clear that what happens next depends upon what the Egyptians do next. In short, the campaign's chronicle has caught up to the point in time that the planet known as E29 has reached, and we thus await further news from E29; until that news arrives, what happened next must remain unknown.

At the time chronicled by the campaign, the English and the Egyptians are far from being the only civilisations on the planet. Thus it has been agreed for the time being that further developments await the involvement of more players, ideally at least one player per civilisation on the planet.

This arrangement has been particularly attractive to the Italians, because even at the time of the start of the campaign the Italians had been reduced to just one city by the Egyptians. They have thus eagerly shifted their focus from the Freeciv level (scale) of play to levels (or scales) of play at which the fact that their last city might have been taken from them by the Egyptians back in the early sevententh century might not, after all, seem so devastating as it might to players thinking only in terms of the Freeciv scale game.
