Once again we found ourselves in the desert (Sahara this time) and we came to the famous Lost Oasis. It was a patch of jungle in the middle of nowhere, exactly five miles by five miles in size. The lines ran straight as any arrow, in a most unnatural way.
Abdul the Sniper was well worth the three points I spent on him. He started by whittling down Buck and Company.
Da Boss finds the Perilium.
While Buck loots the dead. Since we used sand instead of a lagoon we placed two of the minor plot points on the desert sands.
Neither Mr. Purple or Bananas could solve they're plot points which gave Agent Saddler time to make her way to the truck, which was strangely sunk in the sands.
Bananas battled with Agent while Buck took down Mr. Purple. Worst of all the Graboid surfaced (on the first turn it could, of course) making all the sand area extremely dangerous.
Agent Crask was charged by Experiment 13, while Agent Saddler shot it out with Bananas. Saddler then secured a page of the journal from the truck and fled to safety off the sand. Meanwhile the Great Worm stalks it's prey.
While she got away, Bananas, Mr. Yellow and Mr. Purple all go down from a combination of shots and perils.
Mary tries to befriend the Egyptian, who was sounding a horn to warn of strangers in the oasis. Mary falls to a peril. Vasquez also tries to talk to the Egyptian, but Abdul puts her down (Yeah!! Abdul strikes again). Neither recover.
Abdul secures the Egyptian and then wounds Agent Saddler. Da Boss puts a wound on Agent Crask (or maybe it was the other way around). Experiment 13 decides it is time for a lie down, after getting shot.
Rather than going after the box (which contained the paste that would have kept the Sand Worm away) Buck decides that discretion is the better part of Valor and quickly gets off the sand. Good thing to because Agent Saddler had been dropped by gunfire (Abdul again if I remember rightly, maybe Da Boss, they were the only ones hitting anything) and lost the page from the journal. Good ol' 13 got up and grabbed the page, just in time to be shot by Buck. Agent Crask grabs the page.
End game Buck's group have secured the page from the Journal (major Plot Point) and successfully looted the dead (damn grave-robbers). Da Boss and Abdul (the last men?) standing for the Gorilla Gang have the Egyptian and the
I've been gaming since the 1970's and even wrote some RPG adventures in the 80's for the Judges Guild. It seems that I can only get in miniatures is gaming at cons, but I do regularly play boardgames and RPGs.
