The Hound of the Willbrooks
Based of a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The family curse had been playing a lot on Lord Willbrooks mind of late, the hound that had taken his father's life & left his own right arm badly scared from when he was a young boy has it would seem returned.
Howling in the night & sheep found thorn a part have the locals retelling the tails of yesteryear.
"Quickly Waston" he says "there's not a moment to lose.
Designers note, once again Pulp Alley has turned up trumps, this was a solo game played with the 4 minor plot points on the table & the major only been added after the reward card with +1 experience was drawn which happened to be the very first one that the hound got for the Doctor minor plot point.
To create the hound I used the terror rules & for Holmes & Watson the Duo perk which lead to a quick & I think very balanced game, I also so had it that when possible the hound would go for the major plot point above anything else once it was on the table.
The long grass patches are perilous terrain & the mist that starts to form at the end of turn 3 will tiger a horror test if they should come into contact with Holmes or Watson, sadly none of these came into play but worth having anyway.
Stilton who you might have guess was the villain behind the hound & ended up giving the red herring for the reward when his plot point was completed by Watson, meaning things couldn't have worked out better if I'd planed them.
The game end all square thanks to Watson completing the Winnie plot right at the end, as for the lunatic plot point well he seems to have gotten lost in the mist, one last interesting point about this game before I rap up was that given there was only 3 models in play & it been solo in meant that every model got a card from the solo pack at the start of his turn.
Well that's it for this post, as always my thanks for dropping in & if you'd care to leave a comment it would be welcomed.
