The Eye of the Serpent
« on: December 02, 2019, 12:21:22 PM »
Last Friday Doug, Nick, John & I got together for another exciting game of Pulp Alley. Although we all had 'Western' leagues as we are in the middle of playing Vice Alley in an Old West setting as I had recently added a new add on set to our Exotic Location Terra-Former range we decided to base the scenario, around that. The new set is a stage which can be used to extend 'Ricks Palce by 30cm x 40cm adding a stage, wings and a backstage area with dressing rooms, storage and rest rooms. We decided that for the sake of the campaign the scenario would be set across the border in Mexico!


The scenario that we played was 'The Serpents Eye'. This was a scenario that DAve Phipps had written several years ago for Wargames Illustrated that featured our Exotic Location scenery. If you missed it in Wargames Illustrated, I've added a download link to my hobby blog article.

The scenario involves leagues searching for a recently stolen relic. The police are also searching for it, which adds a great complication.

Thanks, glad that you like it. All of the terrain is from our Exotic Location range. They are 10cm cubes that can be re-arranged for versatility. I originally made them for my own Pulp Alley gaming, but subsequently made them available as a product. The 'Stage' area is brand new, not released yet but available at a pre-order discount along with everything else in range in our current mini-kickstarter, 'That's Entertainment'. Which can be viewed here : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/179272384/classic-movies-miniatures-episode-4-thats-entertainment
