Dunno how I missed this but I did.....

I have spotted it now, though, and what a wonderful thread bursting out with eye candy and inspiration it is.
Lost World, eh?
I love what you did with the place.

Consider me an avid follower from now on.

And consider me honored!  :D

Of interest: last year I did two games of Pulp Alley at the same convention, and the players in this year's scenario who ran the I.R.E.S. and Neanderthals were the winners of last year's contests. In the Lost World scenario they used the exact same strategies that they had won with last year: one charging headlong after the main plot point and the other trying to gather up multiple minor plot points.

I was unsure about having the plot-point perils come to life as character foes (cave bear, sabre-tooth tiger, and axebeak), but it turned out well and the players loved the extra challenges! The critters put up a great fight, and few player characters emerged unscathed!

Not a lot of combat between characters compared to some of our other games, and casualties were low with, as I recall, only two characters knocked out. Of course, four characters went down on the final turn and we didn't bother rolling health checks....probably should have, just for fun.  lol

Now the Lost World scenario at Origins was very different in this regard, but that story remains to be told...   >: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.

Here's a sneak preview of the setup for the subsequent scenario at Origins in June.  The sabre-tooth tiger skull is the Inititative Marker (got it at Hobby Lobby, of all places), and Penelope is smack in the center of the table in the center of the Neanderthal village. Things have changed a bit...



The two large dice trays are from the Dog Might Dragon Tray Kickstarter. Also on display are samples from the highly popular Dog Might Components Collectors Kickstarter that just ended. Mike at the Dog Might booth lent me these prototypes to try out. The players instinctively kept all the game counters safely in the CoCos throughout the game,which greatly cut down on the inevitable clutter!

Here's one closer up (notice the magnets):

Your table looks magnificent! I was out of town for Origins. In fact, even though it is in my home town of Columbus, I rarely make it anymore. I lead a middle school tour to Europe every year and it usually conflicts.

I hope the game went well! Your "game" keeps stepping up....looking good!!

Seconded on the cliffs! Is that a Zuzzy mat? If not could you let me know the supplier?

Got' em on eBay back in September and October of 2016, and don't know if they are currently available: search for "Ellie-Bo Rock Formation Handpainted Polyresin Aquarium." They are from the UK.



The mat is by F.A.T. Mats at Frontline Gaming. Their website no longer shows the F.A.T. Mats, showing a line called FLG Mats, so I don't think the mat I used in the game is still available.  :'(

And thanks for your fine words!

Sorry I missed you, Mike..I could have used you! The miniatures wargaming presence at Origins seems to be waning: I set up next to a nice guy doing a Weird War II/zombie game and no one signed up for either of our games! I did a quick recruiting job and got three boardgaming passers-by plus my GM no-show neighbor to play and the fellas had just a great game with great fun for all! Never saw such an offensive, intelligent use of Fortune Cards. AAR will appear in this space in the next couple of days, if my wife gives me enough time.  lol

OK, I think I found the F.A.T. Mats: they are available now on the TableWar website:

http://www.tablewar.com/the-f-a-t-mat/

When I first saw a picture of this mat I wasn't sure about those brown spots, but with all the terrain down on the board they resemble pathways or bare spots and I find it looks good with this scenario.

Here's the first one I had made in May 2016 for Drums At the Rapids:



And here's the one I had made for Origins this year (a really terrible selfie with the statue of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the background outside the Columbus Convention Center):



If you folks out there are wondering: Dave gave me written permission to make these shirts for my Pulp Alley convention gigs.  ;)
