|Lewis brings the rulebook: In The Heart of Africa, 2nd Edition.|
Lewis would like to thank the real Colonel O'Truth for his inspirational blog.
"Again the meddling Colonial Forces on Mars try to influence the Buhtan Spice Trade. Colonel O'Truth, of the 3rd Parhoon Rifles, has recruited Thark mercenaries to aid his meagre forces in harassing the spice caravans. Instead they have become lost in the Desert after a particularly harsh sandstorm. Short on water, Colonel O'Truth's scouts have located a handy oasis. Unfortunately the forces of a local Canal Martian city have the same idea!
Whoever gains the oasis will avoid a dry and terrible fate..."
