Chatter
September 2004
Well, I had a happy time at the Great British Beer Festival. Geraldine and I
joined Neil Packer and James Guiton, plus their mate Chris, for the
afternoon. A good time was had by all. As far as I can remember. I have some
tasting notes somewhere and, if you’re really lucky, I’ll get them written up
for this issue. Neil and James have also threatened to join in.
The business doesn’t seem to have progressed too far since last time. I seem to
have spent quite a bit of time setting up the accounting software I’m using
and getting my books up to date. Plus I’ve done a mailshot to some ex-clients,
which I’m now following up. Who knows, they might have work for me.  And
I’ve been working with my current client, of course. This all seems to have
kept me pretty busy.
The Railway Rivals game ends this issue, so Mike is looking for players for a
new game. Let me know or contact Mike directly. Let us know if you have any
specific maps for the game or want to play a particular map – we should be
able to provide working copies if necessary.
Thinking about it, we could do with a few more players in Les Petites Bêtes
Soyeuses. We seem to be losing players slowly (one a month or so) and gaining
new players even more slowly! So, recruit your friends.
Stop Press: apologies to Odessa Steps players, but I haven’t received this
turn’s star system map. We’ll have to wait until Mike returns from holiday.

Letters
Great to see you offering games for sale again and very pleased to see the titles from
Eight Foot Llama. I had the pleasure of playing Monkeys on the Moon with the guys from
Eight Foot Llama at Essen a couple of years ago. A fine bunch of people, very enthusiastic
about their products and prepared to spend any amount of time explaining rules etc. To
cap it all, they also have a great sense of humour, which is reflected in their games. And,
yes, I did buy a copy of Monkeys – it’s a neat little game with some clever mechanics and
requiring a degree of resource management to win. Not Spiel des Jahres material, but
anyone looking for something light and quirky won't go far wrong with this one.
Interestingly, I don’t see the Eight Foot Llama games as that light. Even Who
Stole Ed’s Pants? (which is a very silly game) requires some thinking. Monkeys
on the Moon needs a whole lot more. And so does The Penguin Ultimatum.

Games Notes
September 2004
I mentioned last time that the Ragnar Brothers had released their new game,
Viking Fury. I was quite taken with it, so I thought I’d tell you a bit more
about it. As is usual with the Ragnars’ games, the board is actually a cloth
(traditionally, this is referred to as a “tea towel”, but it’s rather more
substantial and much larger than the typical tea towel). It shows Western
Europe, but the significant things are the seas, rivers and coastal cities.

assemble the forces you need and attack. So you can usually see an attack
coming – though you may not be able to do much about it. Actions generally
cost money as well. Another clever mechanic in the game is that you can
always get more money. Presumably this is from raising taxes, as the effect is
to increase the Unrest level in your Empire. At the end of the game, the
players with the most Unrest lose victory points.
The players are all Vikings, setting off from their bases in Denmark, Norway
and Sweden to trade, raid and settle. Two sets of cards drive the game. The
Saga cards are collected when particular trades, raids or settlements are
completed. Some of these are worth extra points immediately, but all the
cards count in the scoring at the end of the game. Running out of Saga cards is
when the game ends.
The other set of cards is called Rune cards. They generally allow the players to
bend the rules in some way (such as moving further than they would usually
be able to) or do something special. For example, causing an uprising in
someone else’s settlement. Apart from the cards, there is no direct interaction
between players – other than racing to complete a Saga, which happens
occasionally.
Viking Fury has a mix of points scoring: during the game plus extra points at
the end. So you can’t be sure just how well everybody’s doing. It also allows
players to pursue different strategies. I like it so far, but I’ll report further
when I’ve played it more. You can get the game direct from the Ragnar
Brothers. Contact them at www.ragnarbrothers.co.uk or gary.dicken@
ntlworld.com.
I also mentioned that I’d had the opportunity to try out this year’s game from
Warfrog. Struggle of Empires is scheduled for release at Spiel (late October).
It’s about the rivalry between the European powers in the eighteenth century,
which mainly concerns their various colonies – in the Americas, Africa, India
and the Far East. So players are European nations, deploying ships and
troops to build up their own colonies and do down everybody else’s. One
wrinkle in the game is that the nations are grouped into two broad alliances
and can only attack members of the opposition. Periodically, the alliances
change and players bid on who goes into which alliance. Early on this doesn’t
matter, but later it can be crucial to be able to attack somebody (or be safe
from attack by somebody!).
Players get two actions each turn, which include moving troops around and
fighting battles. My experience is that you usually need three actions to
Page 4
You need to work through the mechanics of the game carefully to understand
it all as the details can be important. You need to get to grips with the board
as well. It has a rather disjointed feel as it’s not simply a map of the world.
What it does is concentrate on the areas that are important to the game. You
should also note that it’s a fairly lengthy game – with six beginners, it took
well over 3 hours, so I recommend learning with a smaller number.
All in all, this looks like another good game from Martin Wallace and the
Warfrog crew. However, if you’re a fan of Princes of the Renaissance
(Warfrog’s 2003 release) you’ll get a strong déjà vu about this game – some of
the mechanics will be very familiar from the earlier game. I’m told that this is
because Wallace has been developing Struggle of Empires for many years. Bits
of it have thus been re-used in other games before the original has seen the
light of day!

I’ve caught up with Goa as well. This has been getting a lot of favourable
comment since it came out. It is regularly compared to Princes of Florence,
which suggests it’s my kind of game. The theme of the game is companies
competing to exploit the eponymous spice-rich region of India. At the heart of
the game is an auction, in which players bid for tiles off the board. The tiles
provide plantations, free resources or victory points or let you do something.
After the auction, you have three actions every turn – and can get more by
playing cards. This goes round the table, each player carrying out one action,
until everyone passes. Actions include producing spices, hiring ships, getting
cash, drawing cards and improving your ‘technology’ levels. These let you
produce more, hire more ships and so on. Each is also worth victory points at
the end, as are cards and cash.
Clearly there is scope for a lot of different strategies here, as each technology
scores the same points for the same stage of development. You have the option
of specialising in a particular aspect that you think is important. You are
always limited, though, by the number of actions you can take each turn and
the number of turns. Hence there is an aspect of planning what you need to do
on each turn.
My initial impression is that Goa is a good strategic game, though I’m not
bowled over by it. I will definitely be playing it again – I think it needs several
playings to get to grips with the way the game works. Goa was designed by
Rüdiger Dorn and is published by Hans im Glück (in German) and Rio Grande
Games (in English).
In last issue I reviewed Ticket to Ride – this year’s Spiel des Jahres (Game of
the Year) in Germany. There are four other games on the ‘nominated’ list from
which the winner was picked.
Dicke Luft in der Gruft: designed by Norbert Proena and published by Zoch. I
don’t know much about this game, but apparently it’s a memory game with a
vampire theme. Rio Grande Games is producing an English language edition
as Dawn Under.
Einfach Genial: designed by Reiner Knizia and published by Kosmos. This is a
German edition of Mensa Connections, the game I saw (but didn’t get to try) at
the London Toy Fair this January. The game is very abstract, using playing
pieces that are two hexagons connected together. Each hexagon has a symbol
in it and the pieces are played onto the board to match symbols. The aim is to
add to groups of the same symbol, thus scoring points. However, the winner is
the player who has the most points in the colour they have scored fewest
points in. It sounds clever, but it’s really not my cup of tea. I’ve also been
unable to find out who’s publishing it in the UK.

Raja was designed by Michael Kiesling and Wolfgang Kramer and is
published by Phalanx. It is also available in English as Maharaja (not to be
confused with the Maharaja published by Avalon Hill some years ago) from
Rio Grande Games. I don’t know much about this one, though I’m told players
travel between a number of Indian cities, building palaces for their
Maharajah. Given the designers, it’s probably fairly abstract, rather cerebral
and pretty good. It’s also one of the games for this year’s EuropeMasters
tournament, so I shall be playing it sooner or later.
Saint Petersburg was designed by Michael Tummelhofer and is published by
Hans im Glück. An English language edition is published by Rio Grande
Games (that’s 3 out of the 5 nominated games that Rio Grande publishes!).
The theme of this game is the building of the eponymous city – Peter the
Great’s “Window on the West”. This is essentially a card game as players build
up arrays of cards to score points in the three different categories. It’s been
well received by gamers, but it left me cold.
Science Fiction
One of the useful things about holidays is getting the opportunity to read
books that are just too big to carry around when commuting. So, when I was
in France in June, I read all 1113 pages of Ash: A Secret History by Mary
Gentle. Published in 2001, my copy has been sitting in my reading pile for at
least a year. But I’ve read it now.
The first thing I had to deal with was the idea that the Ash in the title was
simply an abbreviation of the rest of the title: A Secret History. Ash is, in fact,
the main character in the book. She is a mercenary captain, leading her band
of disparate, but relatively disciplined, soldiers around Western Europe. Most
of the action takes place in 1476.
Around this story we have a framing device to set things firmly in the current
day. This is correspondence to and from Dr Pierce Ratcliff, the academic who
has translated Ash’s story. He is excited to have got his hands on long-lost
documents which allow him to shed light on a murky corner of European
history. And he’s very pleased that he has a publishing deal for this material.
The prologue introduces us to Ash as a child. She grows up within a
mercenary band, living with the ever-present threat – and occasional reality –
of rape and learning what happens when you’re on the losing side. Ash is
different physically from the people around her – ash blonde, for example –
though they’re such a mixed bunch she doesn’t seem to stand out any more
than anyone else.
Page 7
TWJO 47
September 2004
The main action of the story starts some years later when a still young Ash is
now commander of her own company. An interesting mixture of mounted
knights, arquebusiers, artillery and men-at-arms. They are in the service of
the Holy Roman Emperor, Frederick III, fighting Charles (the Bold – or rash),
Duke of Burgundy. This is the initial historical interest. Burgundy was a
significant power in Western Europe, in opposition to France, but it
disappeared from history after Charles’s death. With no heirs to the
Dukedom, the French King re-asserted control and Burgundy was gone.
The story is very detailed. It is written like a piece of fiction, complete with
dialogue, and told from Ash’s point of view. As we read more of Ash’s story,
elements begin to jar. As a reader, I assume that Gentle has done her research
properly. Thus, anything unfamiliar is due to her knowing more about 15th
century Europe than I do. Eventually, the strangeness gets overwhelming.
(This is nothing new – I still remember the dislocation I felt when she started
casually talking about the five points of the compass in Rats and Gargoyles.)
Representatives of the Visigoth Carthaginian Empire, for example, which lies
in “the Eternal Twilight”. Hmm, perhaps this is an alternative history. The
Visigoths are accompanied by their golem. An animated hunk of stone. Okay,
make that a fantasy alternative history.
Now put that together with the academic discussions between the sections of
the story and you have a real dissonance, which keeps going. And I have to
say that after 400-odd pages I’d had enough. The Ash story was interesting,
but I’d had about enough of the details of 15th century warfare and politics.
The story didn’t seem to be going anywhere and the Pierce Ratcliff bits had
just become irrelevant. I couldn’t see how they fitted with the bulk of the book.
Then Ash goes to Carthage. And we discover things that pull the two
disparate parts of the book back together again. What is more, there is a
strong argument that this book is a work of science fiction rather than
fantasy – despite the fact that 90% of the pages are, effectively, a historical
adventure. Very clever stuff and I was completely hooked again.
The only issue I have with the book is the final Afterword. One of the things I
noticed about Grunts was that Gentle couldn’t bring herself to kill off her
favourite characters. The premise of Grunts is that the main characters are all
Orcs: nasty creatures who think nothing of eating each other, let alone killing
each other. Gentle established this principle in the first couple of stories.
Later on, however, favourite characters survive, however unlikely that might
be. And so, again, in Ash. But it is only a minor issue. Overall, I think this is a
fine book, well worth the time needed to get through those 1113 pages.

This game is open to all readers – I guess most of you will know it. Each issue
I will put up a couple of obscure words. Anybody who wants to participate
writes in with fictional definitions for the words. I publish these,
anonymously. Everybody votes for their favourite definition (a vote for your
own definition will be ignored).
Players score points according to how many people choose their definition. (In
other games the definitions include the correct one and players get points for
spotting it. However, it’s too easy to look words up in a dictionary, so I’ve left
this out for this game.) We’ll run this for 10 issues. The winner is the player
with the most points at the end.

Turn 4 Definitions
Here are the definitions sent in for
our next two words.
Galimatias
1 A region of Asia Minor in the first
century AD. The Galati were early
converts to Christianity, but were
repeatedly conquered by their more
powerful neighbours. They were
absorbed into what is now Turkey.
The region’s only memorial is St

TWJO 47
2 Adjective used to describe the
behaviour of someone putting on a
pretence of being gay, either because
they believe it is trendy, or because
they believe it actually improves
their chances with the opposite sex.
3 The green liquid fermenting
beneath the bag in the dustbin.
4 Describes the movement of
someone’s eyes, when said person
has lost the will to live during a
conversation that has no foreseeable
way out. Most notable during first
dates that are going badly.
Hodoscope
1 Derived from Norse mythology
(Hod being the blind god of
darkness). People would have a hod o
scope done, to foretell the coming
year. Alas, Hod being blind meant
that his predictions were generally
unreliable and contained many
generalisations. In later years, their
inaccuracies worsened and Hod
wanted to distance himself from
them. So he persuaded scribes to
subtly change the spelling to what
we know today.
2 Frightening medical implement,
designed to help keep troublesome
patients in line just from the sight of
it. Although not actually intended for
use, more awkward patients would
be advised not to push their luck.
HOD stands for horribly over-sized
device.
3 An
archaic
instrument
for
assessing
the
capabilities
of
construction workers. It measured
the size of the upper arm and thigh.
The measurements were used as a
basis for work assignments and
replaced simple tests based on the
number of bricks a man could carry.
4 A very accurate and rare form of
fortune telling (e.g. “Today you will
be hit by a bus – wear clean
underwear; today’s lucky numbers
are 7, 13, 21, 27, 31 and 42 (bonus
ball 6).”
So for the next deadline, I need you to:
 vote for your favourite definition of each word above and
 let me have your fictional definitions for the two new words below.
The next words are: Irremeable and Kerygma.

Odessa Steps
Star Trader – Turn 14
“So we have an agreement?” The impassive GRAND LARS spokesbeing let a
small smile play across its faces. Across the table the besuited humans from
BLAND & BRASS checked with their Principal.
“Yes, we can agree the transfer.”
“So good to avoid the hustle of the Market.”
“Your things?”
“Will be at your warehouse in 20 tellars.”
“The HectoTrans?”
The GRAND LARS spokesbeing reached into a fold of skin and retrieved an
isocube, then tossed it across the desk. “Paid in full, Gentlebeings.”
At Beta Hydri INTERSTELLAR METALS sold 9 Isotopes at the price of 3
HTs and became Dealers. They will also doubtless be pleased to know that
their Isotope Factories at Sigma Draconis are back on line once more, though
company spokesmen would not give a firm assurance that they would
continue to keep the production facility open. IM didn’t sell Petroleum,
bidding 11, because KATKORP took the initiative, sold 6 for 11 HTs each
before them and gained a Contractorship too.
At Alpha Centauri, GRANDS LARS THENI bought 6 Liquor at 11 HTs apiece,
possibly expecting to turn a profit and see the price rocket when TRANS
SOLAR TRADING Inc. ramp the price next Quarter. But this is supposition.
GRAND LARS will be happy adding a Dealership to their Market Positions.
TSTI were selling Isotopes – 8 units for 4 HTs each – and acquired a
Dealership as well. They then sold 6 Spice at 14 HTs each and got a second
Dealership in the Quarter. IM sold a further 6 at the closing price using
Percent. SWISS MERCENARY FLEET sold 9 Monopoles at a price of 14 HTs
and became Contractors.
Sigma Draconis saw GRAND LARS trying to sell Isotopes, but refusing to sell
at a loss. They bought 4 Alloys for 4 HTs each instead. TOTAL TRANSIT 2070
sold 5 Monopoles for 18 HTs apiece. In Spice, INTERSTELLAR METALS
bought 5 on Contract, and SWISS MERCENARY bought 1 on Contract.
Monopoles were the big movers on Mu Herculis, as TSTI bought 18 for 14 HTs
each, which made them sure of a Dealership. SWISS MERCENARY sold 5 on
Contract, while a rare private deal took place as BLAND & BRASS sold 11
Monopoles to GRAND LARS for a grand total of 121 HTs. GRAND LARS then
wanted to buy Petroleum, but the price slumped, allowing INTERSTELLAR
Page 12
TWJO 47
September 2004
METALS to pick up 5 on Contracts at a lower price. IM also bought 5 Isotopes
on Contract. TOTAL TRANSIT 2070 sold 5 Liquor on Contract here.
Undoubtedly miffed by events last quarter, TRANS SOLAR TRADING INC
dumped 14 Isotopes for 2 HTs each at Tau Ceti, regaining the Market
Managership and undercutting IM’s bid of 4 to sell. KATKORP sold 5 units on
Contract.
KATKORP bought 14 Petroleum for 12 HTs each at Delta Toucanis, allowing
IM to make a good profit selling 5 units on Contract. TSTI sold a single
Isotope for 5 HTs.
Epsilon Eridani saw GRAND LARS selling 7 isotopes for 3 HTs apiece. Then
TOTAL TRANSIT 2070 sold 5 Liquor at a price of 18 HTs. The KAT sold 2
Petroleum for 14 each and had hoped to dispose of more, while THE
UNIVERSAL’s sole trade of the Quarter was selling 6 Spice for 12 HTs each
and a Dealership.
Finally KATKORP Bought 2 Alloys at Gamma Leporis.
Going Round the Corporations, TRANS SOLAR TRADING INC sold their 14
Monopole Factories and bought 16 Liquor Factories at Alpha Centauri.
KATKORP sold their 10 Petroleum factories at Delta Toucanis, and repaid
their bank loan. They then took out a new smaller – 300 HT – loan for 4 turns,
bought 10 Liquor factories at Alpha Centauri, built a Warehouse at Mu
Herculis and increased their Criminal Connections.
SWISS MERCENARY bought 2 Monopole Factories at Mu Herculis and 2
more Liquor Factories at Alpha Centauri. Corporation Spokeswomen,
speaking around large bars of chocolate, were at pains to make it clear that
these two were for the Chairman’s special benefit.
TOTAL TRANSIT 2070 bought a Petroleum Factory at Delta Toucanis.
INTERSTELLAR METALS repaid their Loan, and took out a new loan of 249
HTs for 4 Quarters. A new Phoenix Cargo Ship, the Curium was laid down at
Tau Ceti with A grade crew.
BLAND & BRASS sold their Factory and Warehouse at Tau Ceti.
GRAND LARS THENI equipped Midnight Duke with Passenger pods before
running out of money leaving further re-equipping impossible to carry out.

GM Notes and News
Spice and Liquor are the legal
Commodities that can be transported
in Spaceships and do not take up any
space. Piccolo hulls, which cannot
have Cargo pods attached, can only
carry this sort of goods. Any ship can
carry these goods, even if they do not
have a Cargo Pod. Tempus is the
Illegal commodity that doesn’t take
up space, but you need to have the
Opportunity chit as well to buy it.
If a Hull has a Pod capacity – the
Phoenix for instance can have up to 6
pods – an Augmented Jump pod does
NOT count towards the number of
pods the ship can carry. (There are a
number of people with one less pod
on their ships than the ship can
carry and I don’t know if this is
deliberate.)
If only one player says that he will
carry out an agreement, the
agreement does not take place. (Even
if you insist that you have agreed it
with the other player. It must be in
both sets of orders.)
If
you
increase
Criminal
Connections, your Reputation drops
by one. This affects Reputation bonus
at the end of each Quarter.
Some people are trying to load their
ships with too many goods (IM, you
know who you are). I will decide
arbitrarily which goods are actually
loaded in this case.
There were no new chits this turn.

April 1658
Ah, Paris in Spring… The season seems to have affected most of Parisian
society, too, as very few of them turn up to their gladiatorial confrontations.
One of the few is Charlemagne le Gosse. Let down by the non-appearance of
Duvail de Fontaine, he only has Zachary The Money Goes to face. This will be
a straight rapier fight, but The Money Goes has the advantage of greater
expertise. Not to mention being rather larger than the slightly-built le Gosse.
Sean Sondamour is le Gosse’s second and Fernand Louis Adelmo de Gaulle
holds The Money Goes’s coat. Both men start cautiously with a parry – le
Gosse uses the time to abuse The Money Goes as “a bully-boy who needs
standing up to”. The Money Goes then attacks with a lunge. Le Gosse
continues parrying and stops the blow. A riposte brings him first blood. The
Money Goes ignores this scratch and attacks again with a slash, followed
immediately by a furious lunge. The slash is enough for le Gosse, but he is
still run through by the lunge as he surrenders.
It is also rapiers at dawn for Gar de Lieu and Jean-Claude van Damme. The
delicate van Damme looks at a distinct disadvantage against the medium
build of de Lieu. However, de Lieu is carrying previous injuries that even
things up a bit. Van Damme opens with a furious lunge, hoping to get in
quickly with the initial lunge. It seems de Lieu saw it coming as his parry
cancels the smaller man’s attack. He ripostes immediately and van Damme
concedes the duel.

Heavy Liver
Stan Dandy Liver is throwing his weight around again. First he leans on the
Second Army commander’s Aide and forces him out of his job. The Second
Army commander, General Abel Ringeur, does not appoint a successor. Jean
Petit does not have the same influence as Liver. His call on the Frontier
Division Adjutant to resign falls flat. He does manage to buy himself the rank
of Colonel in the ALC, though. Captain Ced Deucer of the Cardinal’s Guard
strikes out on his own. He puts together just enough influence to persuade the
Captain of the Cardinal’s Escort to resign. Unfortunately he has little
pressure to exert on the City Military Governor and doesn’t get the post.
Then there is a concerted campaign against the three Army Adjutants. The
Third Army Adjutant is Henry Tierry Christian’s target. His influence is
persuasive, but not enough. On the other hand, the warrant he issues for the
arrest of the Minister without Portfolio (Arts and Antiquities) is most
successful. D Arth Vader pressurises the Adjutant of Second Army. He is also
ineffective. The First Army Adjutant is coerced by that man Liver, with the
support of Revaulvin d’Or. The joint approach works and their target quits his
job. The First Army commander, General Claude Byacat, awards the position
to RM Colonel Jacques Shitacks.
What is happening in the Picardy Musketeers? Jean de Florette, Joseph de
Veevre and Jacque Wabbit work together to make it almost certain that the
junior Major will resign. He doesn’t. D Arth Vader shows them how it’s done.
He has a word with the senior Major, who promptly quits. The Lt-Colonel
attracts pressure from Jacques Shitacks and Orson de Combat, but brushes it
off. After all this Jean-Claude van Damme buys his way to Major. De Florette
is then appointed Brigadier of First Foot – thanks to a lot of influence from
Alfonse Qué Holique – and makes de Combat his Brigade Major.
New boy Denis Bone signs up with the
Queen’s Own Carabiniers, courtesy of
Henry Tierry Christian. He buys the rank
of Private. Zachary The Money Goes
recruits Fernand Louis Adelmo de Gaulle
for the King’s Musketeers. He insists on
being a Private, too. Sirius Chien doesn’t
even manage that. He applies to the
Dragoon Guards, but is turned down flat
by D Arth Vader.
Only one more unit volunteers for action
on the front: the First Squadron of the
Page 18
TWJO 47
September 2004
Princess Louisa Light Dragoons, led by their new Major, Jon Dam (financial
assistance from Zachary The Money Goes). Brigadier-General Gar de Lieu
also volunteers. In his case it is to lead a Battalion of the Royal North
Highlanders. And Charles à Tanne announces that he’s fed up with Parisian
society not talking to him and that he is retiring to his country estates. As a
parting gift, he leaves a sum of money in trust for “any man that kills
Coward”. The general reaction in Paris is “Charles who?”.
Outside Liver
While March was a month of parties, April is a month of sticking to your own
club. Mostly. In the Fleur de Lys we find Alfonse Qué Holique, Co W Ard
Extrème and Henry Tierry Christian. Pick a week and they are there. Ella
Fant accompanies Alfonse; Polly Hydronne is on Co’s arm; and Henry has the
company of Edna Bucquette. Stan Dandy Liver thinks he should be in the
Fleur, too, Toadying to Co. Unfortunately for him, Co doesn’t appear to be
aware of this. Stan stands outside the club for three weeks this month.
Zachary The Money Goes gets it right, Toadying to Gaston de St Marque at
the beginning of the month. The Minister of War and an unattached General
together. Hmm… But perhaps they are discussing Gaston’s latest venture. He
has sunk tens of thousands of crowns into constructing a horse racing track
for Paris. D Arth Vader brings Bette Noire to the Fleur in week 1, where he
and Henry exchange challenges. Their antagonism doesn’t prevent Chancellor
Vader from handing over a few thousand crowns to CPS Christian. D Arth
also despatches substantial sums to Co W Ard Extrème (Minister of State)
and Stan Dandy Liver (Minister of Justice). And he nominates Stan as his
favoured financier. Ah, the delights
of high finance! And, lastly,
Revaulvin d’Or passes the middle
fortnight of April in the Fleur.
Things are much the same at
Bothwell’s – though with a slightly
lower class of person, naturally. Here
we find Beau Romir, Lokwot Isaw
and Sean Sondamour in residence for
the month. Frances Forrin joins
Beau; Angelina di Griz accompanies
Lokwot; and Sean has Lotte Bottle on
his arm. Sean show Lotte what he’s
made of by strolling over to the
gaming tables and blowing his wad
in one bet. Also at the tables is the
Page 19
TWJO 47
September 2004
fourth couple in the club, Marc de Zorro and Guinevere d’Arthur. Marc seems
to have some sort of system, as he lays a careful pattern of bets. Three wins, a
loss and a cut leave him a few hundred crowns up.
Marc and Guinevere return the following week, when Marc lays another
series of bets – though at half the amount he was betting the week before.
This time he wins two, loses two and cuts one for a small overall loss. Being
occupied with his gambling, Marc doesn’t realise that Euria Humble wants to
Toady to him. Euria spends a fortnight in the foyer. The crowd at Bothwell’s is
augmented in week 2 by Beppe de Marko. He comes in with a big grin on his
face, Jacky Tinne on his arm and a couple of bodyguards behind him.
(Presumably Rene Ouai, Jacky’s previous beau, has a rather different
expression on his face.) The two stay at the club for the rest of the month.
Beppe is also pleased by having successfully bought a Bond in the Fleur de
Lys (at a very hefty premium).
No Liver
Hunter’s is the exception, being the venue for Orson de Combat’s party in
week 4. Orson has been in Hunter’s all month, accompanied by Lucy Fur.
Sirius Chien and Emma Roides have spent the month there as well. Bud
d’Wiser brought Leia Orgasma to the club for the first two weeks. And Jean
Petit showed up with Maggie Nifisent in week 1. This caused a slight ruction
as Jean and Bud took exception to each other’s uniforms. Things settled down
once they had exchanged challenges. Jean P’s departure saw the arrival of
Jean de Florette for weeks 2 and 3. This Jean’s only contretemps this month
was with the Shylocks’ ‘boys’, who arrived at his lodgings to separate him from
the money he owed. Plus interest.
Then Orson launches his party, aiming
to teach everyone the venerable game of
Fizz Buzz. With Lucy at his side, Orson
welcomes Bud d’Wiser and Leia, Ced
Deucer and Henrietta Carrotte, JeanClaude van Damme, Jean de Florette,
Jacques Shitacks, Jacque Wabbit,
Horatio d’Escargot, Marc de Zorro and
Guinevere, Marc O’Polo and Marie
Antoinette and Sirius Chien and Emma.
There are several choruses of “un, deux,
trois … merde!” or “un, deux, fizz,
quatre, buzz, six … sacré bleu!” until
someone realises that one of the party
has left and nobody can work out who it
Page 20
TWJO 47
September 2004
was. Marc places a few bets while he’s there: two wins and a cut leave him
ahead on the week and well ahead on the month.
Before Orson’s party Marc O’Polo spends three weeks in the Blue Gables with
Marie. Xavier 3sup brings Ophelia Derriere along in week 2. Ced Deucer
arrives at the club the same week with Henrietta on his arm, having won her
affections the week before. The two stay for another week before going on to
Orson’s bash. The Frog & Peach has just one visitor: Horatio d’Escargot in
week 3. And Red Phillips is home to Nom N Clature for the whole of April.
Jacque Wabbit is there to start with – otherwise Nom has the place to himself.
Poetic Liver
Horatio d’Escargot moves around quite a bit this month. He is the only man in
the gyms in week 1, getting a week’s practice with his two-handed sword.
Then it’s a trip to the Bawdyhouses for some practice of a different kind. Jean
de Florette was the first man in the Bawdyhouses, as he started the month
there. After their various exploits in week 1, Charlemagne le Gosse, D Arth
Vader and Jean Petit pass the rest of the month practising with their
favourite weapons. Rapier for Charlemagne and sabre for the other two.
Charlemagne is also pleased to be one of the two successful bidders for Bonds
in the Fleur.
Euria Humble and Xavier 3sup arrive in the Royal Marines’ gym in week 3 for
two weeks’ practice with cutlass. Bud d’Wiser and Marc de Zorro also while
away a week practising: with sabre and rapier, respectively. The visitors to
the Bawdyhouses this week are Jacque
Wabbit and Jean-Claude van Damme.
Anyone would think that the red light
district’s footpads have taken the month off.
However they strike twice in the final week
of April. First rolling Gaston de St Marque
and then pouncing on Zachary The Money
Goes. Both have empty pockets, though.
Zack and Gaston seem to be doing
everything together this month. After their
Toadying in week one, they spend the next
two weeks arguing on Kathy Pacific’s
doorstep. Zack thinks he should have
precedence as he and Kathy have been an
item before. Gaston disagrees.
Fernand Louis Adelmo de Gaulle concludes
his month at the Bawdyhouses, having had
Page 21
TWJO 47
September 2004
an unspectacular April. After completing his regimental duties as a Private,
he discovers that he cannot rejoin the Frog & Peach having just resigned from
the club. Some confusion there. At least he has done the King’s Musketeers a
favour by finding them a new mascot: a piglet called Josie (see Press). Private
Denis Bone also has two week’s duties to carry out – with a different
regiment. This follows two unsuccessful weeks tramping round the residential
areas with a wilting bunch of roses in his hand.
Jacques Shitacks and Xavier 3sup have a noisy first week of April: quarrelling
with each other on Frances Forrin’s doorstep. Jacques returns the following
week, only to discover that Frances is out on the town anyway. His
disappointment is rather vocal and he gets the heave-ho from Vera Cruz.
Jean-Claude van Damme’s exploits become rather public, too, when he bumps
into Jacque Wabbit outside Angelina di Griz’s place. Which is also empty.
Other men who were unlucky in love are Revaulvin d’Or and, surprisingly, the
poetry-reading Stan Dandy Liver. The subject of his poetry was not at home.
TWJO 47
September 2004
Veevre stays securely in camp, but makes just as much money by backing
General Rowbow.
The odd cannonball comes in the direction of Frontier Regiment 4. Only one of
them does any real damage, landing right on Louis de Ath. RIP. KM LtColonel Meaux Curlieunlaurrie keeps his head down and spends some time
with the RFG Battalion of Lt-Colonel Harry Covert, where they serve a superb
breakfast. Covert is as safe as houses and well fed into the bargain.
Brigadier-General Gar de Lieu joins the RNHB and takes command of a
Battalion. He spends the month drilling his new command. General Claude
Byacat leads his Battalion into the attack. This brings him two Mentions and
a few hundred crowns. A grateful monarch makes him a Count.

Devilled kidneys
On the frontiers, the weather improves a bit, making military operations a bit
easier. Mainly for the enemy. Frontier Regiment 2 gets mauled by an
Austrian attack. General Abel Ringeur makes a brave stand, exhorting the
troops to stand up for themselves against the tyrant. At least, that’s what his
Mention in Despatches says. Major Jon Dam’s Squadron of the PLLD is
attached and counter-attacks to good effect. Major Dam receives a pat on the
back.
General Marvin Leigh Rowbow, serving with the third Frontier Regiment,
stands on the ramparts and harangues the enemy. He dodges the occasional
musketball to gain a Mention in Despatches. He also wins the best part of a
thousand crowns in wagers with the Frontier officers. 13F Major Joseph de

The Story: On his way towards the
KM barracks FLAG stopped at a
corner (in order to check the traffic
before crossing the street) when a
noise behind him made him turn
round. A very young pig had escaped
its sty and was having it away on its
trotters, squeaking shrilly. A huge
dog (FLAG thought it might be an
Illyrian mastiff – the kind that
usually has to wear a collar with iron
spikes) was in pursuit, barking
loudly. “This little guy deserved more
from life than to end his days
between the jaws of that dog,”
thought FLAG. When the piglet was
almost past him he snatched it by
the scruff (plenty of loose skin there).
Page 25
TWJO 47
September 2004
The dog shot past them, right into
the street, and was promptly
mangled by the wheels of a passing
carriage!
At the gate of the King’s Musketeers’
barracks FLAG hid the piglet under
his cloak. While he was waiting for
his orders to be written fair, the
dratted animal escaped again … and
darted straight into the CO’s office.
No dogs there, thank God, but after a
while ZTMG came out, holding the
pig.
“Who brought this?”
“I did, Sir,” quavered FLAG.
“Well done, er, Private de Gaulle!
The KM always had a regimental
mascot. Does it have a name?”
“No, sir, I only just…”
“Right. In that case we’ll call her
Josie. Welcome to the regiment!”
Primus: This wine must be good, it’s
been approved by the Minister for
Quality Quaffing.
Secundus: I wouldn’t be too sure, if I
was you.
Primus: Why?
Secundus: Well AQH will drink
anything that’s got alcohol in it!
Gentlemen and others
It has come to my attention that the
King
has
started
acting
unreasonably.
He
has
started
making excessive demands from
individual citizens that are beyond
the ability of said citizen to meet.
Next time, it could be you. Are you
happy about this?

To Brigadier Marquis Stan Dandy
Liver
Sir, as promised I shall use what
influence I have to remove that
incompetent Lt-Colonel in the
Picardies. I hope this helps your
man.
As always yours,
† Colonel Shitacks
Could it not be agreed that a
competition could be held to decide
which is the most beautiful of the
ladies of Paris (after Her Majesty, of
course)? Their gallant defenders
could fight duels to defend the merits
of their loves. A maximum amount of
blood lost could be allowed to reduce
the advantage that those born of
part-human
parents
(yes,
I’m
thinking of you, Monsieur Vader)
have in the ordinary run of events.
What do people think?
NNC, Welcome to the GDMD, I hope
that you enjoy being in this fine
regiment.
I am sorry that I was not able to
welcome you properly last month but
I had some domestic things to attend
to.

I want to cover your dumplings,
In nothing but Liver stew,
Whilst I munch upon raw Carrotte,
And whisper my love for you.
Oh, Henrietta, my darling,
Let me be your Carrotte cake:
I’ll spread you with cream,
And I’ll jam you;
All for our pleasure’s sake.
† SDL
Sweet ladies of Paris so suave and
sublime,
I respect and worship you all, just
given the time.
If your men folk ignore you and just
use you at night,
Inform me: I’ll fight them and then
treat you right.
My words can be muddled and my
head feels fazed –
All your beauty and charm, I’m still
just amazed.
I’m well known in Paris and don’t
fear a soul,
But if you dishonour a lady, I’ll
watch your head roll.

New Rules: Horse races
Some time ago, Nathan Richards
sent me some very comprehensive
rules for adding horse racing into
LPBS
(breeding
and
training,
sponsoring races, presenting horses
and running races). I came to the
conclusion that these were too
detailed for me to implement quickly,
so they went on the back burner.
Then Jerry Spencer came up with a
suggestion for running horse races.
I put Jerry’s ideas together with
Nathan’s, tweaked the result and
have come up with the following.
These take immediate effect and
we’ll see how they work out.
Comments are welcome.
Sponsoring a race
Members of Parisian society may
sponsor horse races in which gentle-
men compete with each other (in
other words, these are amateur races
in which characters ride their own
horses:
no
thoroughbreds,
no
jockeys). The cost of putting on a
horse race is a minimum of 1000
crowns, but may be increased (in
increments of 100 Crowns) with no
upper limit. 50% of this will go to the
owner/rider of the winning horse,
25% to second place and 10% for
third place. The remaining 15% is
paid for the use of the racetrack (i.e.
it goes out of the game).
Attending the race
Characters may attend the race as
spectators. This is treated as
Toadying to the sponsor at his club
and takes a week’s action. They may,
of course, carouse, bring their
mistresses and gamble, as normal.
Page 27
TWJO 47
September 2004
There is no organised betting on the
results of the race: gentlemen are
free to wager amongst themselves as
they wish. (A bet needs to be in
both/all players’ orders.)
So, Pierre has an MA of 4, base
Expertise of 16 and Endurance Class
of 4. This gives him a base speed of 5
for his horse, +2 for skill and -1 for
weight to give him a speed of 6.
Entering the race
Results of the race
Entrants Toady to the sponsor, as
above. If they don’t (or can’t), they
can’t take part in the race.
In addition, they pay the sponsor a
fee of 50 crowns. The sponsor gets 1
SP for every entrant.

Characters who are
members of cavalry Regiments or
Brigades add 1 to the base speed of
their horses (they are deemed to
know more about horses). Members
of the Royal Marines subtract 1
(boats yes, horses no).
Each character has a
riding skill modifier,
which depends on his
base
(not
earned)
Expertise. See the
table on the right.

Each character also
has a weight modifier,
which depends on his
Endurance Class and is
shown to the left.
The race is worked out by rolling 2d6
for each entrant. To this total is
added his horse’s base speed,
modified according to the skill and
weight of the rider. The highest score
wins – dead heats are possible – next
highest is second and so on.
For example, Pierre rolls a 9, to give
him a total of 15 for the race. He
beats Bertrand, whose speed is 8, but
rolls a 6 (= 14). In third place is
Michel with a speed of 6 and a roll of
5 (= 11).
The winner of the race gets 50% of
the amount put up by the sponsor
plus 1 SP for every participant in the
race. Second place gets 25% of the
money and SPs equal to half the
number of entrants in the race
(rounded down). Third place gets
10% of the money and 1 SP. (If only
two horses run, there is no third
place prize.)
After the race, the GM rolls three
dice for each horse: on a 3 or 18
(roughly 1/100), the horse is injured
and has to be put down. If this takes
the character below the minimum
number of horses required for his
rank, he has three months to buy
himself a new horse or he will lose
the rank.

Points Arising
We could do with a few more
players in Les Petites Bêtes
Soyeuses. We seem to be losing
players slowly (one a month or
so) and gaining new players even
more slowly. So, recruit your
friends!
OP Omi Palone (Mike Dommett) has
NMR'd. Total now 1
X2 (Mark Jones) has NMR'd. Total
now 1
After the success of last month’s sale
of Bonds in the Fleur de Lys, a
private gentleman has approached
stockbrokers Filthy, Rich and Loaded
to sell some more Bonds on his
behalf. Bids in excess of 1500 Crowns
are invited.
Brian Niemi (JoR) is away on a
course “with little or no internet
access…” and has been floated at his
request.
Solicitors Saisir et Courir have
charge of the trust fund established
by Charles à Tanne. The fund will be
paid out on the death of Co W Ard
Extrème, but will diminish due to the
costs of maintaining the fund. The
balance stands at 5940 Crowns.
Next month is the last of the season.
The following didn’t send any orders
and suffered the consequences:
DdF Duvail de Fontaine (Simon
Burling) has NMR'd. Total now 1
HC Harry Covert (James Guiton) has
NMR'd. Total now 1
LdA Louis de Ath (Russell March)
has NMR'd. Total now 2 and is
sent to a Frontier regiment
LdE Lucien d'Escaillehuitaillement
(Nik Luker) has NMR'd. Total
now 1
MC Meaux Curlieunlaurrie (Wayne
Rutledge) has NMR'd. Total 1
IMB (Chris Boote) was floated at his
request.
RO (Peter Denison) has been floated
due to computer problems. (He has
no browser and he must surf!)
Reminders: It is worth sending
orders in even if they’re a day or two
late: I may be able to action the
orders and will probably be able to
use any press. It also reassures me
that you’re still there.
You are welcome to submit orders
and press by e-mail. Getting your
press this way is particularly helpful.
Send your orders to lpbsorders@
pevans.co.uk and you’ll get an
automated reply when your message
arrives in my mailbox. Please give
your name and your character’s
name and specify actions in full
(since it’s without your character
sheet). Attached files should have
your character ID and the month in
the name. If you want queries
answered before the deadline, e-mail
LPBS@pevans.co.uk.

Revaulvin d'Or (Rapier, Seconds OP)
challenges Jean Petit (Sabre).
“Adv.” Indicates player with the advantage
in Expertise: his first duelling sequence
need only contain six Actions.
Duels held over until June:
Abel Ringeur versus D Arth Vader.
Challenges to be voted on:
Revaulvin d'Or challenges Jean Petit
for stealing Maggie.
All duels (including any to be voted on)
must be fought next month unless held
over due to one or other duellist being at
the Front. Orders conditional on a
challenge being voted cause are
acceptable.
Trial
The Commissioner of Public Safety, Count Henry Tierry Christian, has
arrested an NPC Minister without Portfolio. This unfortunate will be put on
trial at the start of next month, with the Minister of State, Co W Ard
Extrème, presiding. Players are welcome to submit pleas and press about the
trial, but I suspect that these won’t have much effect on CWAE and HTC…
