IHMN: The Legends

One of the reasons I like In Her Majesty's Name (IHMN) is the flexibility to add some of history's greatest literary characters with real "legendary" characters of the 19th Century.  I'm developing some more adventuring companies and one I am going to do will simply be known as "The Legends."  No official members yet but I have a sneaking suspicion whom some of them will be . . .

Captain Nemo and Queen Victoria's servant John Brown.

"Whoa laddie.  Watch where you be swinging those swords."
Special Agent Thomas Sawyer and Theodore Roosevelt.

In my late 19th Century Universe, Special Agent Thomas Sawyer has participated in two Adventuring Companies: Teddy Roosevelt and Friends and Department H (There is no Department H).

Allan Quartermain and his faithful dog (War Poodle).

The breakdown for Quartermain can be found on the website for the Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare here: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.  He is also listed slightly differently in the supplement Heroes, Villains and Fiends.

Colour Sergeant Bourne, DSO.

Colour Sergeant Bourne is also a member of Department H (there is no Department H).

Colour Sergeant Bourne
Pluck: 3+
Fighting Value: +3
Shooting Value: +3
Speed: 0
Talents: Leadership +1, Exceptional Bayonet Drill (+3 FV), Tough, Inspirational
Basic Equipment: Military Rifle, Bayonet, Brigadine
Armor: 9
Points: 45

Stats for Captain Nemo can be found in the list of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.  I am going to modify the stats for my Nemo so he can swing both of those pulwars at the same time.

Still working on some stats for Mr. John Brown but they will be influenced by what Queen Victoria had written on his memorial statute: Friend more than Servant. Loyal. Truthful. Brave. Self less than Duty, even to the Grave.

Captain Nemo takes on a Yeti.
