It was a two stroke petrol lawnmower, admit it...reports in Malamute and Bibbly are now recovering from carbon monoxide poisoning ;D fantastic game report, layout and minis

Nope - no lawnmower and no cigars, it's not added digitally either.

It was a state of the art camera accessory that's now got a patent pending so details can't be shared for legal reason  ;)

Your notion of East End dialect in the 1880's is most endearing ;)
You boys have given up the cigars and taken up vaping then  lol
Fabulous set up, of course  :)

Rather more Dick van Dyke than Michael Caine? Or more Vic Reeves than Ray Winstone?

Someone really should write a set of rules completely in rhyming slang or better still, polari. A hungry market awaits a Kenneth Williams figure.

Brilliant and love the atmospherics from this Dr De'Ath Smoke-A-Vision (Patent pending) Production.
 :-* :-*

There must have been some use of translation technology, though, as them there Northerners did not mention Pie, Whippet or Sheep once in the narrative.....

Something lurks in the shadows . . .



That's the only photo I took of the game for some reason, must try harder next time.

Lord Avery knew only too well the reason the fog had descended upon Limehouse so rapidly.... It was no natural occurrence!
The Late Professor Hertz Van Rental had warned him that some of the oldest and most powerful Vampire Lords could somehow harness and control the elements.
Lord Avery knew Count Stringfellow was one such Vampire and he feared it was the Count who had brought fog down on Limehouse to use it to his own advantage, probably cloaking his efforts to increase his coven numbers.
Knowing the Count had lost many of his fledgling Vampires in recent skirmishes Avery assumed he was keen to rebuild his forces. Calling together his most reliable hunters Avery quickly made his way to the Limehouse docks...

He was not wrong, through the fog he could see the Counts Acolytes feeding on the innocent inhabitants of Limehouse. Draining them quickly and removing the bodies in readiness for their transformation into the Undead! Avery would have to work fast!



The Vampires however were not alone, guarded by dim witted thugs for whom ahead lay the promise of immortality if they pleased the Master with loyal service unto death...



Avery dashed forward and engaged the henchmen in hand to hand combat, quickly despatching them with expert cuts and thrusts from his saber. His time in the Life Guards was not wasted!



Avery's Vampire hunters made short work of these Vampire brides cornering and sending them back to hell!





There had been no sign of Count Stringfellow, Lord Avery and his men had quickly destroyed the only threats they could find, although they knew at least three unfortunates had been taken and would soon return as the Undead. They would need to be found quickly lest they turn more victims.

However Avery heard gunshots elsewhere in Limehouse and the strange dialect and sound of Northerners abroad. Perhaps Stringfellow was in the vicinity after all....

Thus ended our recent run through of A Fistful of Garlic. More to follow.... Will Lord Avery find Count Stringfellow and just who are these Northern ruffians running around Limehouse and what are they doing there?
