Last Sunday I played a game of pulp adventure with my friends, Tim and Rob. We used LotR SBG rules for the game with a few minor adjustments. By adding in rules from the various "Legends" books we had just about every situation covered.
Tim has a big collection of desert stuff, and mummy stuff in particular. So we played a scenario reminiscent of the Mummy movies. I've played this particular scenario once before and it's fun. We're planning on running it for a larger group of four (four players and Tim as NPC). Tim has all the figures, but only has three "teams" created.
I've been wanting to start a pulp figure collection, and now's the time! So I now present to you my "Stereotypically Evil Oriental Pulp Characters."
Here's the team together. I'll give you the low-down on each after this.
The Very Evil Kang Xiang Long, master mind and pet owner!
Meet the Very Evil Kang Xiang Long's daughter and assistant, Kang Xiu Fang.
The Very Evil Kang Xiang Long has a disciple in martial artist, Chan Li.
The final member is the silent but deadly Zhou Bao.
So that's the pulp group. I went with a Chinese theme. They are all Reaper models except Zhou Bao, which is a West Wind Samurai Wars figure. At first I was torn between a Chinese or Japanese theme. So I picked up a few more Reaper models with a Japanese flavor. Here they are:
I'm excited to see what rules Tim will make for these guys. As martial artists, I think that their hands can count as hand weapons in combat. I also think that every time you refer to my boss, The Very Evil Kang Xiang Long, you must say the whole name or you lose. He's not Kang, not Xiang Long, no TVEKXL. He's The Very Evil Kang Xiang Long. If you don't say that, you lose the game! Such is his sinister power!
