Now would you care to enlighten me as to your plans & have you any idea why there should be so many weapons stored at an asteroid mining base enquired Doc Neddle ?
The first part of your question I can answer easy enough Doc, sooner or later some ships are going to come to bring supplies & bring back what ever it is their mining out here, when that happens I hope to just join their convoy & head to one of those planets , the second part I've no idea about but would guess its something illegal.
A couple of days later it was exactly like Jack said & they put into space dock above the second largest of the planets know as Shin- Tethys, the plan went off with out a hitch that was until they took the shuttle down on to one of the planets, this is where we join the action.

|As well as Jack who is the main plot point we had the two crate's from the last game, one at bottom right of the picture,|
one at the office top left, another crate about half way between the hanger & the red car & a kroot at the blue fuel tank
|Jack & crew exit from the lift down from the raised landing pad|
|It looks like the customs officers are not going to be the only thing Jack has to worry about|
|I won the roll off for the initiative & was using the same league as last time with some different models added|
|As I set about trying to get into good positions Paddy springs a trap on my follower taking him out of the game|
|i rolled familiar area on the events table while Paddy rolled reconnoiter a roll that was to cost him no little pain.|
|My team at the end of my first turn|
|some things are just better in two's, well he started it|
|The generator blows up putting all of Jack's crew apart from Felix in perilous area|
|This combined with Paddy's event roll was slowing Jack up nicely|
|but all that didn't help this guy open the crate|
|& so the shooting starts as the guy nearest the back of the car opens up|
|I put an end to Jack's extra follower|
|Jack rushes into the fight|
|& gives some payback|
|Father Felix take his chainsword to one of the crates, one way of opening it I guess|
|the explosion is still having an effect, good|
|the end of turn 3 & J ack is still a long way from the gate, even better|
|I make a start on a couple of the minor plot points, in the two pictures above|
|& reach yet another one, things are really on the up|
|Oilskin & that dam dog do a bit of tag teaming on one of my guys|
|& down he's goes|
|That chainsword does'nt seem to be doing the trick|
|I got back up but was knocked down again|
|As Jack makes it to the gate house|
|Mr Smith has his tail up now & rushes into another one of my guys, who I don't think would ever have gotten that crate open|
|& down he goes|
|while my leader shows everyone how to open a box|
|now Mr Smith is even giving it a try|
|Jack has fully convinced the guard yet I'm still in with a chance|
|my sidekick rushes Oilskin|
|& makes a right mess of it|
|but then makes up for it with a couple of guards heading his way|
|& the gate is open, Jack you old sweet talker you|
|well at least there's still time left to do something about that dog|
|& he bits the bullet putting an end to all his good work on the crate|
|Jack with his rewards, with 3 vp's for himself & one for the plot point Felix got the game end 4-2 in Jack's favour|
This game was a mix of the Dangerous Delivery & Death Trap scenario's & a blast to play, with Jack as the main plot point & having to try to get off the base through the checkpoint which once there he had to complete a challenge just like a plot point, the other guards around the table moved about a random D6 at the end of each turn & if they came within an inch of a character would become an extreme peril.
I've got to say I'm finding pulp alley to be very easy way of building a narrative & fits very well into any setting or plot in the best of pulp fashion, now we started off well with Tricol & have gotten 2 scenario's AAR's in in more or less a week, but going forward this is more likely to be a month which was my original target, this will give me time to build any terrain I need & with Paddy moving up to Belfast he's not going to be around as much.
So my thanks to you know who & well done on another good win, I thought I had you that time & also as ever my thanks to you for dropping in.
