Globetrotters’ Guide to the Dark Continent

By on 15 January 2013

To the natives of Africa, the land is their sacred home: while it can be cruel, it also provides for their every need. To the European governments, the continent is a vast stock of natural resources and manpower waiting to be exploited. To both it is a land of mystery and superstition, with crumbling cities older than recorded time, natural wonders of amazing beauty, and living cultures whose stories predate the written word.

This supplement details three new Leagues and expands on the Gazetteer information from the core rules. It also contains four sample player characters and a page of henchmen.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
