HG Wells at the end of time (Astounding tales AAR)

 Had this game in my head for  quite a time, wanted to use my miniatures collection not  ised in  my games  some resting in a file box, the est win HG Wells and there time machine along with some adventures against the  Hallucigenia  and  some mythos creatures at the end of time. Drawing on Mr Moorcocks  eternal champions who have been long time companions in my games since i first read them.
 HG Wells along Una Perrson and Captain Oswals Barnstable, Catherine Cornelius of the  guild  Temporal adventures and a reluctant Randolph Carter  were the good guys against the  terrible Zog an advanced supreme being    Hallucigenia who witgh 3 migo plan to  shatter the very fabric of the universe at the very end of time by using a captures Catherine as a door way, he has  entomed the ritul to be in a portal enclave considering his plans complete he will open a door way to the old gods who will do his bidding safe from any intervention

 the remnants of a dead earth the  savage Crab men are the sole  inhabitants of the land
 Una has managed to follow Catherine but is unable to get into the  ritual  structure she is alone and now faces the inhabitants who wish only to feed on her 

 Zog commands the vile ritual  his Mi-go servant's chatter in glee
 Una has sent a message to the other  guild but is now beset by the Crab men valiantly she fends them off knowing the fate of the universe is at hand 
 the  Savage crab men slash and tear at her parrying there claws she manges to  fell one but   knows her time will soon be up against the  razor claws of the inhabitants of the now earth

 Oswald has gained the  aid of HG who by shear luck and perhaps skill arrives at Unas peril
 the Captains  blaster pistol eradicating the  crab men he  engages the  inhabitants telling HG to locate in time Randolph who is perhaps the only one capable of defeating the  vile Zogs plans.
 a charging crab man falls  to Oswald's  fire power
 Una hurt and bloody fends of her attacker
 Oswald aims and takes  out the charging crustaceans 
 HG returns with a very disgruntled Randolph on the other side of the  tomb
 Oswald blasts another crab man  will they never stop there ruthless charges
 Una finally  defeats her foe and  loading he Mauser she  shoots down 3 more  crustaceans 

 the battle continues  blaster and bullets against the  remains of Earth's   inhabitants
 they race towards HG 
 a crustacean is no match to a solid bunch of fives HG grabs Randolph and  goes to the battle sceane

 a wounded Una  makes it to the machine and HG using Randolph knowledge   directs  them inside the  Tomb

 they arrive just as the ritual is about to be complete, weapons ready but the mi-go are fast and ready
 Diving on the adventures claws slashing and tearing the  company os over run
 Zog unaffected completes his ritual and from the darkness from shadows a monstrous entity is  brought to the  real space
 Catherine screams and fends off its intentions 
 The Mi-go knock Randolph down knowing he can  unravel all there masters plans
 HG is then confronted by the monstrosity all hope fading 
 Oswald beasts back then fires destroying a Mi-go 
 he then takes vaporising the Mi-go attacking a failing Una 
 Catherine struggles with the might  entety who is still forming and vulnerable
 HG uses all his wits and skill and slays the last Mi-Go then seeks the fallen Randolph 
 Catherine her bond solid she  focus and  tries to dissipate the  monstrous  being but her strenght is failing
 HG revives the fallen Randolph
 he  searches his books for the incantation he chants and the  entity slips sideways back to its realm
 Zog furious directs his mind  powers first to knock Una down and cold 
 the Oswald falls victim to the  evil ones powers
 Zog turns and  strikes HG down , Randolph face the  evil   head on

 Catherine  distracts Zog  who is then sent along the same  path of the monstrous entity sealing the  portal and all is safe

Randolph saves the day the adventures are revived there  adventure at the end of time complete
Again the astonishing tales rules make the game work so well. i have Howards supplement rules for chainmail bikini so next perhaps Conan  will feature, great stuff and the babatrons will come soon i promise
