In Her Majesty's Name Official Blog


For those of you who play In Her Majesty's Name, or are interested in checking out the game, check out the official Blog maintained by The Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare.

 The Napoleon of Crime, not necessarily a gentleman.

I was surprised the other day when I was contacted and informed my blog is currently on the front page of the official blog.  Oh quit swelling my big head!


The official blog has information about the game, bonus materials, genre packs and player-authored material.  Most importantly it is jammed full of fun for players in gaming 1895 envisaged by Jules Verne, H.G Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, H Rider-Haggard and Rudyard Kipling.  It is a world of heroism, sacrifice and betrayal.

 Where the Great Powers, building upon the advances wrought by the success of Charles Babbage’s calculating engines, have advanced faster than one might have thought.  Where ownership of the latest technological marvel might just be the thing to build fortunes, destroy empires and win fair ladies.  Where a few men’s pluck and cunning can change the course of history.

Written by Charles Murton and Craig Cartmell, these rules were released by Osprey Publishing in May 2013, with a supporting figure range from Northstar Miniatures.

Where else could you find Teddy Roosevelt, Special Agent Sawyer and Colour Sergeant Bourne fighting evil?

The first supplement for these rules, covering companies from the Dark Continent, Old and New Worlds, called Heroes, Villains & Fiends was released in November 2013. The second supplement covers companies from India, China and Japan and is called Sleeping Dragon, Rising Sun.
