Title: The Land of the Lost - A Pulp Action Game
Post by: Captain Darling on December 07, 2021, 12:16:44 PM
After the success (and lessons) of last years Christmas Pulp Game, Terror on Skull Island we're all set to go again this year! Welcome to, A Bad Day in the Land of the Lost! This game is set in 1919. Once again there will be four teams, jungle terrain, lots of critters, rope bridges, a deep ravine, angry natives and unbelievable events!

A warning to all, you best not to be a wayward Explorer in the Land of the Lost...you may end up on the locals menu!

Looks like you are going to have a great game there. Intriguing write-up on your blog.

Incidentally, where does the man and the pot come from, scratch-build?

Thanks for the encouragement guys, looking forward to the game even though I’ll just be ‘moderating’ on the day!

MLS re the ‘explorer in the pot’ you are correct it’s one of my scratch-builds.

Captain, your attention to detail is highly commendable! Your gaming group is very lucky to have you. I can tell by the amount of effort you put it that you have as much fun running a game as playing, if not more. Sterling work sir!
