Conan and the Alter of Death (pulp Ally AAR)

 After  may reads and again watching Dave's  wonderful videos, I wanted to try the solo deck and the Blood Sacrifice scenario . I had  a Conan league set and  raised a Thusla Doom league to fight them. the scenario i laid out and decided a princess as the victim and major plot point, (my camera took some very bad pictures so below are the best.) The game played very well and I cant   story board the  turns as normal due to the pictures.

 Thusla Dooms  league
 minor plot points
 Conan and friends

 Doom enters the game
 the princess
 sir hiss failed miserably and  lasted like 5 seconds.
 Doom warriors and gang 
 Subotai made short work of them
 Thorsen spent 2 turns stationary.
 Conan and Valeria engaged Rexor over a plot point
 Doom vanquishing the priestess to get his first plot point with ease
 the evil priest had a time on  the second plot point he did his best
 Rexor is downed and his point stolen by Valeria
 at last the  plot point is his

 Alko runs and tries his best but
 is felled
 Turn 5 the  monster turned up almost on top of Conan
 the battle starts and blows are exchanged 
 Valeria joins the frey and still the beast wont fall
 Doom goes for the princes and victory he is stopped by very bad dice rolls and loads of swearing is heard from the princes who resists his attentions
 Aiko and Thorsten dance and fight around the plot point
 the evil priest  steals if  as they fight
 Cona bravely still battles the huge monster
 Subotai tries to stop Doom arrows bouncing off him as he at lest wrestles the princess off the alter 
 he grabs her and makes a run for it
 claws and lades still clash and the heroes fight the  huge thing
the evil priest  succumbs to his adventures and fall flat as Doom escapes off with the prize
Victory to Thusla Doom as Conan is still fighting the  monster. 

Very enjoyable game and the solo deck work, I again apologise fr the poor showing of pictures, but hope it gave some feel to the game. Pulp alley worked fine i did not use the  extras you can from the Leagues book on  Fantasy games but perhaps next time.

thank you Dave for inspiration as always

Ipy and the Jungle of Fear (Pulp Alley AAR)


 After along time I watched the wonderful videos from Dave at Pulp Alley on game play, and was infused to try again I opened my files and re read now with a better understanding of the game (I hoped). so I set about  playing a game I read and purchased the solo deck and  thought this would be the  test game of my new found knowledge.
My  leagues I had already, Ipy the Pharaohs  favourite and her companions against the  un-dead  company of the dreaded Akanaton. To find the blood gems  lost in the jungle after a ritual.
 Akanaton, Anck Su  Namun, 2 guards  2 cobras 3 gangs of Zombies and 2 Robbers
 Ipy, Ast her adventurer friend, 2 bodyguards a group of slave girls and  chip the  Dog
basic starting scenario 4 plot points perisl near the points
 Akanaton and his  un-dead enter the area "Find the  gems my followers"
 Ipy rushes into the   land intent on getting the gems before the  dreaded one.
 A cobra slides forward to find victims 
 the Tomb robber advances inot the camp seeking the gems
 Anck Su  Namun passes the perils and grabs the first point her power brushing aside any peril
 Akanaton enters the camp  issuing orders to move fast and  get the prizes
 Ipy spots the  lurking Cobra and strikes with her  throwing stones
 the  reptile is out of the game
 The robber spots the slave girls and attack thinking poor defenceless girls  
 Ast gets past a plot point and  is wounded in the process 
 A gurad fails and is down trying to grasp a gem
 the slave girls  fight  the robber he is outnumbered and realise his folly, he falls to there  skills

 another robber falls to Ipys stones

 Akanatons magics fell a loyal bodyguard
 A guard rushes the slave girls 
 Chip dives into a mob of Zombies
 But is taken out by there claws and teeth
  a loyal bodyguard is surrounded
 Ast now recoved recives another group of  Undead who race at her
 she falls on there first attacks

 But rises and  dispatches the un-dead in a sweep of her blade
 the slave girls  fall as the guard is knocked out the   evil cobra sealing there fate
 Ipy saves the  Loyal bodyguard from the last un-dead
   Anck Su  Namun gets another plot point, but is spotted by Ast
 Ipy seeks her friends who are fallen around seeing Ast attack   Anck Su  Namun 
 the  fight ensues, dark magic against  hardened steel
 a guard falls attempting the  final plot point
 Ast and   Anck Su  Namun drop each other as the  last #cobra seeks an easy kil on the fallen  fighter

 Akanaton grabs the plot point  he believes he has victory
but the  Cobra falls to a weakened Ast and then both her and   Anck Su  Namun are out of the game, leaving there 3 plot points
 Ipy grabs the  final plot points giving her 3 to Akanatons 1 victory to the  brave girl

Conclusions, really enjoyed it and found it flowed very well the solo cards are great. I believe i have mastered the concepts about 85% and  will now play more.
Thank you Dave and co for the  push back inot the game......
