Dreadloque is a piratical take on Flintloque - Alternative Armies skirmish wargame set in an alternate Napoleonic war featuring fantasy races - set in its own part of that world called The Windy Isles. A place of pirates and treasure far removed from the smoke hazed battlefieds of the Mordredian Wars in Urop. The first adventure in the Dreadloque series was written by Flintloque alumni and Orcs in the Webbe regular Danny O'Hara and published back in the mid nineties on his website Filbanto Stew. It was a huge favourite among Flintloque players.
In 2008 Danny returned to his Windy Isles setting with the follow up tale, Dreadloque II "Dead Dwarf's Chest" exlusively for publication on Orcs in the Webbe as part of that years Advent Calendar. It featured a prelude and three full scenarios, or acts as they are often known in Flintloque mini-campaigns.
In 2009 Danny gave me his blessing to take up the reins and I started telling a tale set one year after Dreadloque II where things in the Windy Isles changed, but not for the better. Over the next few years Dreadloque III took shape and was completed in 2013 consisting of a short prelude, three acts and a nautical interlude featuring a Kraken.
In 2014 the story continued as I started a new tale set in the Windy Isles featuring a new character, a Dwarf called Gadrin, an exile from Urop finding his first steps in the new world. The tale itself, A Softer Fire, forming the prelude of Dreadloque fourth season.
In 2015 Danny O'Hara agreed to return to the Windy Isles as part of that years Saints Day scenarios and penned a tale taking us back to the beginning, back before Black Powder when magic was still in the world and the halflings of Jamcakey had yet to overthrow thier Orc masters.
Dreadloque is one of the fondest memories of Flintloque players and piratical tales set there will continue on Orcs in the Webbe.
