Photostats of Regent's Park, London

   The idyllic peace of Regent's Park was broken this past weekend by a struggle between Lord Curr's 'Incorrigibles' and the Mechanickal Menace of Herr Doktor Professor Otto Maton. It seems some sort of mad science experiment gone horribly wrong resulted in a terrible beast escaping confinement. Two grisly murders in Regent's Park led Lord Curr to investigate. Maton, obviously intent on securing the monstrosity for his own nefarious schemes, arrived on the scene at the very same moment, and a struggle ensued. In the end, massed volleys from several of Lord Curr's men brought the beast down. Maton was also injured, but dragged to safety by his loyal automaton servants as they quit the field.

   Sadly for our news journals, there was no one with photostatic apparatus available at the scene during the fracas. However, in the aftermath, some stills of the park were taken. These we present here, for your enjoyment.

A quiet sitting area...

The bridge under which 'Bad Jack' lurked.

The path winds through shady trees...

Graceful willows along the riverbank.

My word, what is London coming to. This in the same week that the Prussian Embassy is stormed by Captain Nemo.

Absolutely gone to the dogs, I say. Personally, I blame the Government.

Nice set up. Good to see an IHMN game that doesn't require loads of buildings. Having the game in a London park is an inspired idea!

Thanks legatus! I am working on (in my excessive spare time) building some cardstock buildings as well, but... I haven't even finished one. I thought the park would be a good open space to fight it out. If I had any animals, I might have put it in the Zoological Park for some added interest. What happens when you have to go in and get something away from the lions' enclosure, for example?

Love the idea of a game in the park!
