Pulp Alley: Phantom Menace Meets the Nefarious Dr. Fang in the Cave of Doom!!!

Hello Distinguished Viewer of all Things, both fine and fancy,

Today we have another exciting game of Pulp Alley for you.  It was put on by the master of ceremonies Dave (Lord Dain on Pulp Alley).

It's a "Trail of Clues" scenario; only two of the four minor plot points are on the table; the other two and the major don't appear until they begin to be solved.

In this episode:   Starring your favorite anti-heroes (left to right) The Phantom Menace, Mr. Hooks, Roger McDonald, Slick, Harvey Rabbit, and the loveable Dr. Naughty.

And the cast of bad guys (left to right):  The Preacher, "Red", the nefarious Dr. Fang, Herr Gunter, Muffins the dog, Dack Prescott, sidekick Habib, and mean old Granny.

Both sides set up with in 12" of opposite corners.

 Interesting, the clever Phantom Menace has split his gang up.

The field.  Green dots identify your stars, the red dots identify the villains of the adventure.

The Menace's troops charge forward to the two visible objectives.

The Nefarious Dr. Fang's minions ooze forward towards their nefarious goals.

On the right, Gunter shoots Mr. Hooks from afar...coward.

Then suddenly all of Fang's pop out and there's a hell storm of gun fire.

On the left, Dr Naughty sends off a warning shot.

Roger moves forward and tries to solve the plot point, fails miserably and leaves the game.

 A little pointless shooting across the table.

Despite the hail of bullets, Mr. Hooks, Slick and Rabbit move towards their objective, take it, and taste the beginning of victory!

Behold, another point appears close to the Phantom Menace.  Ignore the red dot next Dr. Naughty.

The brilliant minded character that he is, Menace solves the point.  The major plot point appears and the Phantom's team is almost choking because the taste of victory is so strong!!!

Now for the final blow to Fang's evil plans, Dr. Naughty has moved to the objective.  Victory is impatient.

Meanwhile on the right, there is still some shooting going on.  It's almost like an episode of the A-team.

Harvey Rabbit runs forward to give the others time to join the Menace and take the final point.

Alrighty Naughty preps for the challenge.

And is shot down by Dr. Fang.

No one noticed the sneaky Habib has slunk to one of the minor objectives.  Which he solves.

Right:  the Preacher attacks Harvey, more shooting as Hook holds off Fang's horde.

Sadly Dr. Naughty fails his recovery.

And even worse, the Phantom Menace is being swarmed.  His skill is shooting, not fisty-cuffs.

That voluptuous demoness Red has no manners and it looks as if she intends on taking the Phantom Menace's major plot point.

right side:  the team malingers around not helping the Menace.

At least Hooks is able to shoot down mean old Granny who came forward to help Red.

The battle continues.... but wait...what the hell is Habib doing?  He appears to have found another minor plot point.

OOh I hate Habib.

We begin to panic as Red starts solving my major plot point.

Oooh I hate Red.  She steals my victory taste.

On the right, that pesky Preacher won't leave Mr. Hooks alone to kill Red.

We can't seem to escape or repel the villains on the right.

The Menace continues to roll around on the ground with Dr. Fang and Muffins.

In a stroke of hopefully not to late good luck Hooks and Harvey shoot down half of Fang's gang.

Menace continues to wrestle.

Farts!  Red is getting away with my plot point.

Failure!  Fang and Red escape.  Never has the Phantom Menace been so humiliated and spent so much time fighting Muffins.

Till next time when I'll have a some new minis painted up and possibly more exciting Pulp Alley.

Love and Kisses,
