Oh, that's disgusting! Love it!  :-*  lol

Wish I could claim credit, but the inspiration came from the Horror rules where it states that a Horrific Challenge could be "searching a pile of rotting corpses." Granted my plot point is just one corpse to search, not a pile, but with the dismembered-body-and-head-on-a-stake theme and the totems, ravens, and rune stone I hope it qualifies.  :D
I was talking aloud to myself. A habit of the old: they choose the wisest person present to speak to; the long explanations needed by the young are wearying.

The Lost World scenario was held on Saturday May 20 at the Drums at the Rapids miniatures convention. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and the game went down --literally!--to the last roll of the dice. I will include here a taste of the action with a more thorough report to come later. Uncharacteristically, my normally trusty Samsung Edge 7 produced some out-of-focus images  :'( but I am planning on reposing and re-shooting the offending photos for the final AAR.

The story so far: It is 1895, and the renowned scientist/explorer Professor Thaddeus Blackthorne, accompanied by his daughter Penelope, have found a lost world hidden in the darkest unexplored areas of Africa. He excitedly sends a porter to alert his colleagues in the International Research and Exploration Society of his discovery. But things then start to go horribly wrong. The Blackthornes run afoul of a tribe of Neanderthals: the Professor is torn limb to limb, his head placed on a stake, and Penelope is held captive.

A special rule was added: the Cave Bear, Sabre-toothed Tiger, and Axebeak represented the extreme perils for their associated plot points. Once the peril was passed and the plot point seized, they were transformed into full-fledged characters who had to be defeated in the normal way (shooting or brawling). Until they were knocked out, they relentlessly attacked the closest character(s) (the exception was the Axebeak, who wouldn't  go further than 12" from its nest). Despite the added difficulty the players really enjoyed this rule!  ;D

The Outlanders

Doc Flynn’s I. R. E. S. League
Flynn has come in response to Blackthorne’s summons. He may have arrived too late! Can he save Penelope?

Capt. Wolf’s Sky Pirates
Ever the opportunist, Wolf has learned of Blackthorne’s discoveries and is irresistibly drawn by the lure of lost riches.

The Natives

Aleena’s Amazons
The Amazons have arrived on the scene while looking for their lost Okroi, only to discover what Drekk’s tribe has done. But this outlander woman they have seized could serve useful…a new breeding line for future Amazons?

Drekk’s Neanderthals
Drekk’s slaying of the outlander and capture of his daughter have greatly pleased the old gods. Perhaps they would grant him power in exchange for the woman’s life…Drekk grows tired of being dominated by the Amazon tribe.

THE MAP:


After seizing a minor plot point (chest at base of tree stump) Amazon leader Aleena dispatches a vicious Cave Bear defending its lair:

Having snatched an egg (minor plot point) from its nest Neanderthal leader Drekk and an ally flee from an outraged Axebeak mother:


Amazon sidekick Oona searches the decaying body of Blackthorne and finds his journal (minor plot point):


Doc Flynn strides fearlessly up the steps to the temple platform (extremely perilous) to attempt to free Penelope (major plot point) :


The Neanderthal sidekick Krork attempts the Sabre-toothed Tiger minor plot point, but an enemy plays a card that draws the ally Jorjj into the challenge too:


Doc Flynn attempts to free Penelope, the major plot point:


Jorjj recovers, Krork takes a hit, and finally Drekk arrives on the scene, and the Sabre-tooth is defeated:


I. R. E. S.'s Professor Eva lets loose with her Arc Pistol on members of the Sky Pirates:


Fialka (ally) desperately attempts the Okroi minor plot point but fails the peril:


Aleena dispatches the Pirates' Mack O'Reilly (ally) after a surprisingly vicious brawl:

Wow! Fantastic! It looks like I see some Ultra Inviso Bases, but they are hard to spot!  lol

Oh -- you have a package headed your way for the conventions. Wish we could be there. HAVE FUN and take lots of photos to share with those of us stuck at home.  ;)

That all looks fantastic!

I'd love to see a better picture of the Okroi - if you're OK with it, I'd share it on the Forge of Ice page!
