The overall scenario involved stalwart British led askari, valiant
native warriors, devious Zanzabari slavers, and disreputable
Ruga-Ruga bandits. The Ruga-Ruga have captured some villagers
who are to be sold to the local Zanzabari slave factor. The villagers'
chief is out to rescue his subjects and the British askari are there
to punish all malefactors, whomever they may be.
