a bit of pulp Stuff

For the promotion and discussion for anything 18th Century that mixes wigs, powder and lace in a theme that is not quite historical, but not quite fantasy.

a bit of pulp Stuff

Post by Cardinal Biggles » Sat Aug 11, 2012 7:14 pm

Once upon a Time...on a moonlit night in Pangaea
J-L mentioned this on another post but it was very buried in his post ..It is a long posting..some of the pictures couldn't be recovered and it was composed by 3 of the players..We have never quite done one again, though a lot od stuff has been prepped and a bit less prepared..quite a lot goes into a game like, getting all the people in the one place is the hardest..and generally the episodic adventure needs more time than is usually available..that said one is almost ready to go when everybody can be got together....it owes more than a a bit to both John Ford and Sam Peckinpah.. think Vampire controlled cossacks for Apaches...
http://www.drunkendragoonproductions.co ... p?f=14&t=3 for the veru full and very long story..
it starts thus..
A game played in Goulburn on the 15th of November 2009 by Larkspur, Pz. Ferdinand, Evzone , Loudon and sort of managed by the Cardinal hisself.. from an idea by the PZ, heavily modified by the Cardinal and Loudon with bits from Algernon Blackwood, John Ford , HP Lovecraft Bram Stoker...Captain W E Johns , Galton and Simpson Perry and Croft...and a special thanks to Kate Beckinsale..



Well it all began sort of, at the Wolf's Head Tavern...
Image
A force of 16 Dragoons, under Sgt Major Evzone was to escort Major-Count Lutowski, a rather seemingly pompous staff officer, to investigate a village "that had dropped off the radar" in modern parlance. The reason it had dropped off will become apparent...
Image
Image
Image
There were an amazing number of senior staff there giving some rather interesting instructions, some of which, had he known it, would have had Sgt Major Evzone galloping as fast as he could in the other direction.
Lutowski is in his cloak.
To his surprise the Sgt-Major finds he is saddled not only with a ramrod up his arse staff officer to nursemaid but also with a rather grim looking group of infantry and a small group of civilians, one that includes a rather alarming looking ,sword wearing, priest , all who also travelling to the town of Wulfsdorf
Image
The Sgt Major and his men
Image
Image
The Infantry are led by the rather hard bitten(in more ways than one ) Hauptman Kein Namen , assisted a Fahren Junker , the Dal Riadan Archie Kennedy and 8 equally grim looking rank and file..With the group were a store wagon and two pack horses led by two civilian contractors. In an unusual move, Kein Namen had the priest bless the water barrels in the wagon before the expedition set out.
In addition, the story continues. if the Sergeant-Major knew what both The officers were secretly ordered to do he would have deserted there and then ...no doubt ..

A great adventure and great report!

Now, any 'alternate' 18th C. where monsters DO exist need professional monster hunters :arrow: http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=277651
