PULP ALLEY Kampagne Episode 5: Jungle Hunt
« on: April 05, 2018, 12:37:08 PM »
The Leagues arrived at the island where they suppose the Germans will have their secret science base. Soon they meet primitive locals. It turns out the locals know the way to the German base and will show it to the strangers, but under one condition:
The well armed strangers must first hunt some of the beasts which peril the area for some time now and threaten the livestock and the inhabitants of their village. Especially a great snake caused terror among them.
The beasts are dangerous enough, but the Germans may be one the hunt, too…..

All plot points are extremely perilous and wandering, representing the beasts wandering through the area. The Germans will show up once the major plot point has been solved.

The NKVD entered the jungle.


The Japanese Soldiers came from the opposite side. This time they had been reinforced with one scout.


Ilja Stoianev tried to catch a crocodile, but had no success!


The Japanese were advancing into the middle of the board.


This time agent Wladimir tried to catch the crocodile, but failed, too!


Now it was Airgirls turn, but……


Dimitar engaged the Japanese Soldiers with his MP and caused some wounds.


The Veterans answered by throwing a grenade, but Dimitar evaded.


Ilja was still on the hunt for this damned crocodile….


The battleground before the Great Elephant God.


Dimitar continued his one-man battle against the Japanese – with success!


But then at last a lone bullet found him.


Ilja took a wound from his nemesis the crocodile, but he did not give up – and finally succeded! It took 5 attempts to catch this beast.


Meanwhile a wounded Veteran catched another beats on one of the rocks.


And it appeared Dimitar was not done yet!


Ilja was badly wounded, but not down.


Mitsuhide entered the cave of the Great Snake!


But she escaped!


This brings the battle to an end. Although some beasts were dispatched, none of the  leagues managed to catch the Great Snake.

The natives were not satisfied, and so the Leagues have to go and search the way to the german base on their own.

Next Episode will follow: Jungle Search

Nice looking game. I do like that elephant statue, is it an ornament or fish tank decoration?

That looks a fun game. How do you decide which direction the random creatures will go in each move?

Second on the elephant stature. I really like the jungle bases too.

Thanks for the kind words.

The elephant statue is a fish tank decoration.

The wandering beasts move 2D6" in a random direction. I use a D10 to point out the direction.

Thanks for the info. Just to be sure I understand this, being new to tabletop games, that's up to 12" in any given direction, presumably regardless of terrain.

That makes the animals extremely unpredictable and dangerous then. I can see why the supposedly technologically superior leagues had trouble catching them...

That was the Plan!  :)

Thanks Dave!

The terrain is mine, but the minis are from the two players Tom and Darius playing the campaign. I am acting as GM, playing the occasional third party (the germans). They will play a more dominant role in the final part of the campaign!

Very nice, especially the snake who looks very well painted.

I agree- it looks very realistic.

Hm, well.....the snake is a Schleich figure - straight out of the toy store. Some of their animals are really useful for tabletop.
