The Old Church of Rome struggles against the new Reformed faiths, with many believing that the Devil, the Old Gods and their agents stalk the land and fan the flames. In France, the young king Louis XIII struggles to reform his realm and reclaim power from the old noble families, rotten with corruption, ambition, greed and infernal pacts. In this, he also has to contend with the influence of his mother and her cabal of astrologers and occultists. Only one man stands between the King and his enemies, defending the realm from anarchy: Armand Jean du Plessis, Cardinal de Richelieu. He has created an elite, secretive and unconventional order to help him in this task: the Crimson Musketeers. And today, November 11th, the Day of Dupes, is to be one of its defining moments.

Writer: Dudley Martin


It is the beginning of the year of our lord 1866, the Taiping rebellion enters its sixteenth year, and the American civil war enters its sixth, with no end in sight. The rich become richer and the poor become poorer, the blood of the innocent is shed for the material wealth sought by so many.


But, War. War never changes.


The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Britain conquered most of the world to feed its voracious engines of industrialization.


But war never changes.


Western Colonialism has spread across the globe, plundering material wealth and leaving death and destruction in its wake. Looking upon colonial populations as inherently lesser than Europeans, the Colonial powers rape and pillage with little to no regard for those suffering under their rule. Oppressed peoples throughout the British Empire await a time to rise and liberate themselves. But the forces of the Empire remain powerful and in control.


The storm of war threatens the Empire. An enemy has emerged on English soil, with forces that threaten the security and peace of the centre of the Empire. The state funeral may be over, but the needs of the fallen remain. The British military has a policy of leaving no man behind and you have people who need to be rescued. A new phase in the coming war commences, as forces of the empire undertake a dangerous mission behind enemy lines.


No matter what happens there will be suffering. Because war, war never changes.
