An extensive range of attractive and trend-eye 12" to the foot gifts for the man, woman and child who already have everything will be available from the gift shop planned to open next year (and it will always be 'next year'... ).

A highlight of the shop will be a range of posters inspired by vintage LNER advertising and the like.

NEW latest boards and models for Pillage and Plunder RPG

Twenty years after the release of the original Pillage & Plunder role playing game (RPG) two new boards have been developed by Bobnian Entertainment Unlimited.

In the first new board, The Green Land Quest, you take the role of Noggian, a Viking captain based at Dorstad near the mouth of the Rhine. You seek to trade peacefully with settlements at Jorvic (York) and Dyffryn (Dublin). You need to get to the quayside before an infamous ship called the Hrafnperl whose dodgy-dealing captain, Djaks Carrow, sets the locals seeking revenge on the next Viking traders.

In the second game, Kvetsalcoadjlsaga, you have already made the journey to the Green Land and back successfully several times. But your navigator with a legendary lodestone shares a secret that no other Viking on the Green Land knows – he has been to a land of untold wealth to the south-south-west. You must survive several storms to get to the New Found Land.

Full details of The Green Land Quest and Kvetsalcoadjlsaga.

In addition to the new boards and decks of cards, the renowned model kit makers, Revell, have produced 1:72 scale models of Hrafnperl, Kvetsalcoadjl and Noggian. Further kits are expected to be released towards the end of the year.


 

 

 

 

 


Pillage and Plunder teeshirts

And an earnest doff of the cap to Lars Petrus, Thomas Kuhn and Bruno Latour.

And a belated mea culpa – nearly two years after creating these illustrations I discovered one of the Gorillaz characters is called Russel Hobbs. Never did take much interest in popular music…

update:

Some interesting insights into Calvin and Hobbes including their creator, Bill Watterson, saying they were 'an inside joke for poli[tical]-sci[ence] majors,'
