In the Mountain pass of Azilal


The Provinces of our imagi-Nation Morocco.Deep interior of Azilal, in the river fed mountain pass an ancient cult has guarded a secret tomb and prison to a demon known as Exodius.

There would be conflict again in this remotest of regions.

In theory this valley site should have remained hidden for all time.


 Once the discovery was made the forces of the world would come to investigate and try and take all things of value and pillage.
The French would send their Foreign Legion to invade and take the valley.
Hideous and maniacal  contraptions would be discovered and need to be fought.

The British would send their foreign forces into the valley.  If only to best the French and to test their new contraption.  The Fez!

The Defenders would try as they might to keep hidden that which is forbidden.
A great time was had by all in this three way G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. extravaganza.

The rules were card driven turn sequence with move or shoot.

Lots of eye catching moments in this terrain feast.

Finally got to use the scarab machines.  These were dubbed the "Arab Scarab."

Three forces contraptions all in the market square of the valley.  The French S. Car. Go.

Mech on mech action in a metal scuffle.

A scene near the great pyramid.  The tribes could be heard chanting the name of their god. "Exodia!"


The FEZ!

An evil pirouette.


Thanks for looking in.  The tribes of Taureg were victorious and will get to decide on the next game scenario.
A. Will they pursue the French to the river line and try and destroy their river boat?
B.  Will they pursue the British into the highlands and try and seal the pass that they used to access the valley? 
C.  Will they take the advice of you dear reader and go with your choice of the two game scenarios listed above.

If you read this far go ahead and comment on your choice for the next game.

Cheers,

Ken




The gaming device of card tiles came from this neat little Poker game.....

  2. I'll second that motion: beat the snot outta those Frankish thugs, thieves and hired assassins they call the Forrin Leedgin. Burn their boats, and trot whoever survives to surrender along to Our God Exodia for the condign punishment they deserve for defiling our Holy Valley... ...

  3. It looks like an enjoyable game. I would like to do the 'Lost World' scenario with dinosaurs ridden by Vikings!
    I wonder if you could tell us about the machines. The one with the big smoke stack reminds me of an Ork Killer Can.
    I was waiting to see the demon with a supernatural or magic versus technology. Did the demon create the giant metal scarab thingies?
    Was there a chance of alliance between factions?

  4. I'm a little late to comment on this post, but where did you get the 'playing card' tiles I can see next to the units?! A genius idea for card driven games like G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T.

    Chris,
    The tiles are from a Poker themed game at the link above.
