Mars is dying...

Mars is dying...

Not through fault or neglect or wicked reason, not even because of the Gods; though some would say this is so. Mars is dying because it is old.

For time beyond count, our world has floated with the orb of the sun god, basking in the everwarmth that it provides, the Martian brothers sailing around giving constant company.

The Ancients warned the death of Mars might be so. Long, long ago; before the Storm. It is said the Storm lasted for an age or more: I for one, do not believe this to be true even though the clan elders warn me against foolish words.

There are still some Ancient writings in the deep deserts for those who wish to learn and are willing to brave sandstorms and the creatures that live there. Most of our knowledge from before the Storm comes from stories told around the clan fires, told again and again, embellished ever so lightly with each clan teller so who knows what is true and what is not.

With each storm season, the Ancient houses and temples disappear and reappear so fast that is easy to loose them completely, Gods know how large their cites were or what final secrets they contain. Three whole clans have been lost searching for the chief city with no sign or call from them these long years past.

But now we have new troubles and concerns. The Earthers have come to Mars: to steal and pillage what they can and to take it away to their blue world. Curse them to the Gods! They have no right, no honour and no need to be here. Like parasites they come here destroying whatever they touch and leaving mayhem in their wake.

They must be sent back across the sky ocean to their blue world.

They must be stopped.

It must happen now!

The Temple Raid Part One AAR

The Japanese, Germans and (what is now becoming clear) and independent force backed up by Sky Martians all converge on the newly discovered temple hoping to be the first inside to discover the secrets contained within.

The Germans came prepared though with three, as of yet, unseen walkers of immense size and they started to take a heavy toll on the smaller Japanese force.

The Japanese cavalry tried to sweep round the flank but came up against a ferocious counter attack by the Sky Martians.

The Japanese take a serious beating and with the Germans and Independents moving ever closer they decide to retire to minimise anymore losses.

Diary of Archibald Harris-Hampton...

With the Japanese in retreat the Germans and their allies set up camp and start to explore the temple. What wonders will they discover in it's dark depths...

Game was played using the Rifles and Spears variant of M+T with suitable VSF alterations by us. Thanks to Happy Wanderer!
