Eating People is Wrong

 "Eating people is wrong!" exclaimed Theodore Roosevelt as he takes aim at the dangerous cannibals of Niam-Niam.

One of the most dangerous encounters in and around the Lost City of Opar are the cannibals of Niam-Niam. The term Niam-Niam appears to be of Dinka origin, meaning in that language “great eaters,” with reference, as is supposed, to their cannibalistic propensities.  “These beings,” remarks the German explorer Herr Doktor Professor von Sanders, on his first introduction to them, “stood out like creatures of another world . . . a people of a marked and most distinct nationality, and that in Africa and amongst Africans is saying much.”

Some of the cannibal warriors of the Niam-Niam.  I am intending that most of the force for In Her Majesty's Name causes terror due to the possible selection of their adversaries appearing on the menu.

 Some of the more experienced warriors wear mementos of previous meals and the archers use poisoned arrows.
 
Poison arrows!
 
The warriors who shall not be seen.
