Found in an antiquarian book-shop in Great-Widdling recently, inside a false book.





A set of old photographs inscribed by hand on the reverse.

“Cult boys on tour, 1920, British Somaliland.”








“We meet Mohhamed Abdullah Hassan at his secret hideout at Asha Addo. Everybody calls him the Mad Mullah, definitely one sandwich short of the proverbial picnic!”



“We saw a snake-charmer near the market.”




“We go to the Great Temple of Hermes Trismegistus (the purpose of our visit). That’s me on the left, Mum, waving!”



“The Bloody Altar of Time where we are to carry out a secret ceremony known only to our leader.”



“This is me and the boys. L to R, me, the Great Keeper of the Dark Secrets, the Senior Arcane-Lore Master, the Grand Panjandrum Horologium Cultus, Nine the Keeper of the Corpus Hermeticum, we never knew the name of this guy, never spoke, very creepy, and Spod the Grand-Maester Inquisitor.”



“In Cucullato Horologium Cultus, January 1920, the Great Temple of Hermes Trismegistus.”



So, it’s about time there was an update, nothing since July 2014. I’ve at last finished painting the Cult and am over halfway with the third league.  One or two NPCs to finish as well. I must play this game soon. Snapcase with his travelling companions; Errol Snapcase (failed silent movie actor, on the run from Hollywood turf accountants), Lavinia Snapcase (daughter of Errol, suspended from St. Trinian’s notorious 4th form), H. G. Wells (time-traveller and author, prefers to be called Bertie), Flight Sergeant ‘Ginger’ Hebblethwaite (notorious bibber and friend of Flying Officer James Bigglesworth), Phantom Ace (travelled to Britain from his home town in Oklahoma during the Great War to volunteer for the RFC, 16 victories) and Minkey (Lord Snapcase's travelling companion) are now on their way to Asha Addo. As usual Snapcase has no idea what is going on! Dark secrets and hideous happenings are awaiting the party at the Great Temple of Hermes Trismegistus!




To be continued………………………………..

Brilliant all round.
Your games must be a treat to behold.

I’ve at last finished painting the Cult.....

I have feeling that that statement may not be completely correct.

The first protagonist of the third league arrives in Asha Addo on a recce. I am now looking for some pun/fun names for my Légion étrangère  league members if you'd like to offer some up?
