The Hun, The Frog, & The Lion!

A Fictional Scenario For The Sword And The Flame.


The Situation

It is dawn, March 22, 1903.

Out of indigo shadows on the Mediterranean, a small force of elite Marines in long boats silently rows into the port of Mogadir, pirate capitol of the Moroccan coast. A sun baked hell hole by day, Mogadir is the lair of the infamous brigand Emir Ali-ben-Fulin-Arown who fancies himself the next Bashaw of Morocco. Besides banditry inland and all along the coast, he has lately begun stopping foreign shipping and helping himself to such cargoes as serve his schemes for power. Not incidentally, this has put the legitimate government in danger of being deposed by any of several European powers looking for an excuse to intervene and "civilize" the last independent Muslim state west of Constantinople……


Con location where we will be running this game:

BY JINGO – Colonial Wargames
Bearing Only The Slightest Resemblance To A Certain Well Known Film. Scenario designed by Patrick R. Wilson & Richard Houston, recently adapted by the nefarious Sgt. Guinness to suite his own misguided imagination. In addition Patrick Wilson of TVAG has been working with me to update the game maps as well as undertaking additional support and assistance with this project that he had originally completed many years ago…….

This is actually the second game he has hosted using the movie which must not be named as an inspiration. The first was a wild affair which saw excitement, adventure, treachery and double dealing and that was before the game even started! A rather interesting turn of events took place when the French decided to seek revenge for apparent slights over comments about the Franco-Prussian war.

Superb figures and terrain. A great gaming system. A GM with a terrific sense of humor and a table full of folks there to game and have a good time, not a room full of rules lawyers should once again guarantee why Jeff is so popular his games are full as soon long before the convention!
