Treasure Alley - a Pulp Alley swashbuckling extravaganza
« on: November 24, 2014, 01:20:00 PM »

Not your classic pulp setting, but I think pirates versus zombies qualifies! Hadn't played Pulp Alley in a while, so when we had the opportunity to do something a bit different at the G3 club's annual games day, this idea was born. We used the option of using an action to reload the guns and both George and I felt it gave an extremely exciting and cinematic game. Is there anything Pulp Alley can't do?

Nothing like a good cliffhanger!

Absolutely! Great game!

Thanks guys! I can only take credit for the scenario, though. The figures and terrain are all George's and the leagues are mostly thanks to Robert Louis Stevenson! :)

I heartily recommend giving a black powder version a try. Three musketeers, pirates, Sharpe...any of these will do. The simple reduction in fire output and decisions on when to fire really the change the game in a most interesting way.
