First | Previous | Next | Latest

This term the OULES turn their inexhaustible comic enthusiasm onto the subject of EXPLORERS! Travel back with us to the golden age of exploration (also natty headgear and facial hair), and accompany our weird, wonderful and be-waistcoated adventurers as they all seek the greatest prize of all, the legendary Gem of Kukundu! There will be puns, there will be songs, there may even be the occasional meta gag.
