Pulp Alley- "Destination: Terror Island"...
...or "Juan Effing Jorge!"
"Amazing Adventures of Dutch Oven and the Fearless Five" Pulp campaign. I've been busy redoing my jungle terrain and Basement General Steve brought the temples, miniatures and the crazy-ass back story. Plus, the flicker tea-lights and "smoke" made it all very atmospheric...
The plot points: The radio atop a watch tower, the Death Ray, and vial of green blood, the trap door to Doctor Terror's lair which could only be opened after tracking down the monkey who was the only one with the security code.
We had six players. Me and the other Jay controlled Doctor Terror and his denizens of Terror Island. A collection of Dr. Moreau-esque mutants and stranded pirates turned henchmen, included Juan Jorge (more on him later).
In true Pulp Alley fashion, Followers and Minions dropped quickly. All accept Juan Jorge, a nondescript pirate lackey who JUST WOULDN'T DIE! He alone held up the advance of Roxy Rocket's League and harrying Rip Daring's. "Ju in Juan Jorge's case now!"
Von Zombie ended up getting the radio, Rip the vial and Roxy tracked down the monkey only after he scratched the eyes out of an ally, Flint Michigan.
I am once again thankful for the gaming group and understanding wife I have. All good sports that understand we are, after all, just playing with soldiers.
