"Out in the fog-shrouded night of Victorian London, an
evil force was lurking, waiting to strike. A senseless murder, over a strange artefact,
was only the very beginning of the terror of The Iytean Menace. What was the
ancient evil, and how had it been awakened? Where would it strike next?
The Time Lord and his Companions had been sent to the capital of Queen Victoria's realm to learn the source of a strange weapon that should never have been on Earth at all. What they found was a web of mystery and deception that led them, step by step, to a confrontation with The Iytean Menace."
The Iytean Menace was originally published in 1985 by FASA as part of their Dr Who RPG.
Normally it is difficult to translate an RPG scenario into a wargame as the two rarely mix. However, the Larger than Life (LtL) rule set from Two Hour Wargames (http://www.angelfire.com/az3/twohourwargames/LargerThanLife.htm) are flexible enough to be used with RPG scenarios.
So, over the Christmas 2009 holidays, I finally got the chance to dust off my copy of The Iytean Menace and did some gaming. Those familiar with The Iytean Menace will notice some subtle changes from the RPG scenario. Those familiar with LtL will recognise the underlying game mechanics. I haven't documented every dice roll (e.g. challenges) so as to keep the narrative flowing. Any rule comments are red.
So sit back and enjoy The Iytean Menace!!!
