Path of the Monsters (Palaeo Diet, eat or be eaten game)

 

Played quite a few games of Palaeo Diet (eat or be eaten ) solo game by Nic wright and after reading the wonderful AARs on the lead adventure blog from Katsuhiko using firearms and conquistadors, I re read and decided to give it my worlds 
Used a basic idea to cross a monster infested wood land the Brave Sir Wolff and his party need to escape into the interior seeking the treasure of the mystical frogmen.. 

Sir Wolff and his party enter the  valley
A Musket man takes aim at a mighty beast blocking there path he injures the  beast but awakens all the surrounding creatures to there arrival.
Lord Luther is charged by another huge creature his pistols failing to even dent the beasts hide he is wounded by the beast.
A second musket man is charged by two raptors who rip the poor soul apart.
Mad Jane moves and take aim her shot is a critical
the beast drops like a mountain
Sir  Vermeer rushes to the path cleared
Luther joins them as the bishop Atto binds his wounds they must  press on
an archer tries in vain to pass by another huge beast is sniffs and charges it slays him instantly
Bishop Atto runs off leaving a wounded Jane
Wolff and a musket man are charged by the  monster on the flank it rips apart the musket man
As Jane readies her musket a raptor dives and kills the brave woman

Luther realizes he is the only one left in the valley as Jane is killed  he makes a run for it
the party manages to navigate the Valley loosing four of there party but killing a huge creature and one raptor. they move onto the lost city.

Very fun game and the  system works, next adventure in the works...

Fear of the Dark " The Indian Mound"

 

The new Solo skirmish game Fear the Dark grabbed   me to  get a copy and try it out, it a Lovecraft world game facing the terrors of the master of horror himself. Written by David Suki it is  a fast narrative skirmish game. As many know i have quite a few beings, monsters and other things in my collection. So after a few reads and working out some characters I decided to play the Indian mound Scenario. my investigators have located a long past burial ground in the deep woods and  realize to there horror that the woods are actually moving to attack them......

My investigators have to roll a sanity check as they  see what is actually happening, to  my joy they all passed...
Yes there my very ancient player characters from many years a go but im old and there easy to remember...(Wolff/hero, Una/ Ally and Dr Thanos /Ally
The things in the woods 6 of them come out to slay the  intruders
the monsters shamble forward and Dr Thanos decided to draw some off
Wolff hope also to draw some off
Dr Thanos faces living wood, thrashing and  scraping
Una is  suddenly facing another horror
Wolff come to her aid but is cut wide by a slashing branch
Dr Thanos struggles with the horror, he rends and pulls the creature apart
Wolff strikes hard and the  horror reals as his blow connects
Dr Thanos  smashes and  tears and the horror falls to the ground returning to where is came
Poor Una is struck about the head and felled, as Wolff eventually destroys the  creature
As he staggers back two more appear and strike at him
Dr Thanos confronts another as they swarm out of the woods
Wolff struggles against the two monsters
He  fells one and is facing certain doom
 A stroke of luck and he manages to destroy the vile beast
Dr thanos  fights off his attackers he destroys one and the second  goes in to slay the brave Dr
He also  manages to find a weak spot and the monster falls

Review: The game works extremely well and is fun, the monsters are no pushovers and the card and dice combine top create a very workable system. One thing the hero points save your characters don't forget to use them as I was in critical  both times near the end..

Good game more to come loads of potential...

(Una has to miss the next scenario , so she will be back no worries)
