One of the most dangerous encounters in and around the Lost City of Opar are the cannibals of Niam-Niam.

Oh, those are lovely. Years ago there was a scenario for Darkest Africa in Wargames Illustrated with the same title. Did you use it for inspiration? I don't have it any more, but remember being greatly inspired by it.

Naturally my favourites are the tribesmen wearing masks. Who makes them? Foundry?

Thank you for sharing!

Actually, Lector recommended a "nice Merlot"…in the book. They changed it, nonsensically, to Chianti in the movie.
Honestly, who would eat someone's liver with cheap Italian table wine?

"Do you eat liver?"

"Depends on whose liver I'm eating."

I once grossed out my dad with that line.

The title is originally a Malcolm Bradbury novel from 1959 – link

Eat the right liver, and no additional alchohol is required.

And don't forget the fava beans. ;^)
