If your only new to this site or have not been here in a long while here's a link back to the start of the trail.
As Panama Jack & the crew arrive at the dig site, the first thing they noticed was a women standing on a little island in the middle of a river screaming at the top of her voice, who are you people & what are you up to you've no business here do hear me now clear off.
There seemed to be a lot of people about & some of them didn't look like the type you find on a archaeology dig, then Lucinda turn to Jack & said, aren't some of those guys some of your old friends that have been after us ever since we came to Shin-Tethys, her sharp eye's recognising one or to of them.
Ok lads Jack called out spread out & keep an eye out for anything that might be of use to us, I'll see if I can get to Miss Dorrow & convince her we mean no harm.
|Hearing Elaine scream U'bunyu starts to run towards her watched by Numbers|
|The plot points, starting from the top left are, the green tent, the straw canopy, Elaine in the bend of the river, the green crates bottom left & U'bunyu on top of the dig mound|
|Felix rushes in on one of Slick's hired guns|
|As the Unknown tries to sneak up behind Adele Blanc-sec & X4Y|
|But seems to trip over himself|
|Adele & X4Y moments before|
|X4Y goes down to a hail of bullets|
|Mad Willie & Shades open up on each other|
|But then Pops leans a hand & Shades goes down|
|Mean while Numbers moves a round to the other side of the mound as Maggie comes under fire on the river bank|
|Over on the other side of the river the Doc goes to investigate what's on the table|
|But comes to the attention of Little Red & Jones & is cut down|
|Lucinda who had taken to higher ground dishes out some payback|
|Slugger takes cover behind some crates & opens fire|
|Jack Oilskin & Ms Smith try to come up with a plan|
|Which results in Jack & Oilskin moving up to the tents|
|Slick with a gun in each hand fires at Lucinda|
|Not for long as Mr Smith rushes in|
|Slick dodges away & moves nearer to Lucinda|
|Face starts to make his way over to Elaine|
|Not to be put off the scent Mr Smith is soon back nipping at Slick, how had started a brawl with Lucinda|
|Who slip away while Slick deales with Mr Smith but no without feeling some pain|
|Unknown after regaining his feet gets rushed by Maggie|
|& is put to the sword|
|Adele wades her way over to Elaine|
|Slugger decides he'll have a look inside the crates|
|Mad Willie decides to watch some tv|
|& gets cut down for his troubles|
|Slick joints Mr Smith on the deck as Jones moves around behind Lucinda & Felix, there seemed to by some kind of explosion by the table|
|Stay down but who ?|
|Looks like Red is down as well|
|Jack hears a noise coming from inside the tent, as Oilskin turns over the table to take cover behind it|
|What kind of a foul creature is this wonders Jack & quickly puts him to the sword, before ducking inside the tent where he finds some papers|
|Things don't appear to have gotten any better for poor old Slick|
|Pops is down & out, not sure if he got it in the face or from Face|
|Numbers keeps U'bunyu busy while Adele talks Elaine into getting out of here, I've a car waiting just beyond that mound go now while I cover you she says|
|But what's this ?|
|There seems to be explosions all over the place|
|I ask you could this day get any worse for Slick ?|
|Jacks rewards so far|
|& some more rewards but of a different kind|
|All the explosions had caused some kind of a parley in the fighting, giving Adele a change to start her get away|
|Numbers decided it might be time he made a get away to while the fearless Maggie ran forward|
|Adele make it to the safely to the back of the mound as Lucinda & Jack make their way across the river|
|Lucinda takes care of Maggie while Jack looks after the harmless Numbers|
|Not to be out done Slick mugs Father Felix, robbing him of the item he'd taken from the table, maybe it wasn't such a bad day after all|
The mission we played out was Hidalgo Fire from the Perilous island expansion of PA, kicking off the beginning of the campaign in that book, which seen Adele Blanc-sec & her followers make off with Elaine Darrow (the major plot point) worth 3 vp's.
The Bash street gang make off with two minor plot points (thanks to some late mugging) worth 1 vp each, so 2 vp's for them & Jack & the crew take one minor plot point so 1 vp for them but I'm sure the papers will be of some help to Jack in his quest.
The four explosions happened at the start of turn 4 & if the game seems very quick from that point on it was down to me forgetting to take picture for awhile in all the excitement, it not easy playing & taken pictures at the same time you know.
Adele & her followers is a new gang I've put together & I'll do a post on them soon I hope, so I'll finish up with my thanks to Paddy & Ralph for taken part in the game & for making it so enjoyable & as always my thanks to you for dropping in.
