IHMN 6: Barn Dash Macabre
Things were looking bleak for Sir Rupert Utterley-Barkinge and his Expeditionary Company. He had been disowned by the Explorer's Club. He was still stuck in the New World. He'd lost a friend to the Black Dragon Tong. Lady Constant had locked herself in their steam dirigible, from which she had refused to emerge since the end of episode one. And now they had spent the best part of four days trekking across the countryside chasing a Clockwork Pigeon. there hadn't even been an opportunity to stop for a bit of big game hunting along the way. And now they were sat staring at a bunch of Zombies wearing military uniforms he'd never seen before. Cout Otto remained convinced that there was something vaguely Germanic about them, but he couldn't put his finger on quite what it was that made him think so. Private Gathering had been quick to point out that it's a good job he didn't because those Zombies would be quick to bite it off. The comment had not gone down too well...
They were beaten by the Dragon Lady and a number of her Tong. As they climbed inside there was a blinding flash of light, and the carriage and its contents disappeared. Just like the photo I thought I'd taken of the Dragon Lady at this point...
Where had this strange vehicle come from? What had Goonda done to make it happen? Why did it disappear? Where did it go to? Why did it bear an uncanny resemblance to a 1940's Citroen? What have Nazi Zeds got to do with all this? And what will happen next?
The answer to at least one of these questions will be answered next time. Hopefully.
Sir Rupert WILL return!
(Just not so sure about the Dragon Lady just now...!)
