Hyborian Tales Photos

Well, our first event was a great success (with only a small number of teething troubles). Here's what are probably the only batch of photos, behind the cut. Perhaps inevitably we were too focused on getting the event going to remember the existence of our camera till the Saturday night... still, there's some good pics of the tavern evening and of Adventure 3: Warriors of the Frost-King.

Possibly not work-safe, if your workplace is the kind that disapproves of pictures of dismembered corpses:

The Geats return from a hunting expedition to find their village burning, and their tribe butchered, all at the hands of the evil Brannstifters and their new King, Balethorn.

Some of your barbarians seem to be wearing machine knitted jumpers.
I am outraged!

Appearances can be deceptive... those are thigh-length Viking-style tunics, in woven wool or wool-like material rather than anything knitted! Unfortunately some of the people in them are somewhat too big for the tunics to come below waist-length -- something we'll have to work on for the next batch we make.

They give a suitably appropriate dark and smoky feel to the thing ! Even better, I don't appear much. :) If you'd like the water pipe removing from that first picture, send a copy my way.

I'll probably get rid of the pipe and the beer tin with Photoshop or similar before I send full-size copies to Neil for the website... thanks for the offer, though!
