Pulp Alley AAR: Showdown at the Crossroads
« on: June 21, 2018, 04:50:05 PM »


The small but bustling market village of al-Hambar, south of Cairo, is under assault. A group of evil cultists calling themselves the Fangs of the Serpent God are attempting to seize control of the place and its strategic location on the crossroads of two ancient caravan routes. The determined villagers have pooled their resources (hmm, this is beginning to sound familiar) and put out a call for help on the wire services and international short wave frequencies. Half a world away, Los Diablos Locos, a league of unemployed western movie actors, stunt men, and studio grips, hear the call and, desperate for work, accept the commission. Hurriedly packing and departing on the evening Clipper, they have apparently misread the destination on their ticket vouchers, as they are under the impression they are going to Alhambra, Spain.
The Fangs are led by a Serpent Priest who was recently tossed out of the Servants of Apophis for his incompetence.  The Diablos are led by a balding former matinee idol with a weight-related digestive disorder. 
So, it's almost exactly like "The Magnificent Seven," if the Eli Wallach and Yul Brynner roles had been played by Laurel and Hardy.
One of these boobs just has to win, right?  (Spoiler: one does)  You're gonna love it.

  Big fun! I'm so proud of those crazy devils for finally coming through--shows what a good trope can do for you. And yet, were there any talent scouts watching? Is Hedda going to hear about it? I think not. Good luck getting funding for your next movie guys.

Thanks, you were partially responsible for their creation, and it was fun to have them kick some evildoers' butts for once, as opposed to getting their own kicked.
Not talent scouts, precisely, but a couple of shady types from one of the more sinister Sally 4th character card sets were definitely present.  As for Hedda, I think she's in the set.
And thanks for posting, as well.  It was getting weird hanging out in here alone.

Rags, always enjoy your posts. Another fun AAR: keep 'em coming!!!
