Ambush! Part One - Companies and Set-Up - IHMN AAR

Lady Blackwood has a much needed cup of tea at the Base Camp


Ambush! is the second chapter in our A Lost World Adventure campaign and follows on from Into the Unknown!


Expeditionary Camp

Whilst Lord Blackwood takes his party of explorers out and comes face to face with terrifying creatures from long ago (see Into the Unknown!), the rest of the expedition, under the eagle-eyed Allan Quatermain and no-nonsense Lady Blackwood, set up camp near the river which brought them to this strange land.
