My long time gaming buddy and I ran our latest Pulp adventure at HMGS-South's Recon 2107 in Orlando, FL.



The Adventure centered around the Mysterious Dr Fu Manchu needing a suitable donor to give up their life force so that he may continue to live. Obviously the selected donor objected to this donation, and the adventure was on!

Peripheral to these goings on, Indiana Jones, Doc Savage, Operator #5, Jack Cutter, Fearless Fosdick, The Thule Society, Stahl Maske, River Pirates, The Sengh Brotherhood, the US Navy and the USMC all became tied up these goings on in one way or another. Each group also had their own objectives to pursue.


We had 12 players in the game and all had a great time.

In the chaos, half of the town burned down, several boats were stolen, more boats were run aground or burned, a virgin (who turned out to not be a virgin) was almost sacrificed, Fealess Fosdick got a date to the Policeman's Ball, several international incidents with foreign nationals occurred, the Marines won a drinking contest with the Navy, a bar was trashed, a dog was saved from some local's cookpot, Stahl Maske wound up being ambushed, hogtied, left in a pig pen and impersonated. I am sure that other things happened, but these were the highlights.

Thanks to HMGS South for a Great new venue and thanks to all of our players!

It looks like a great time was had by all.

Good stuff!

Can you elaborate on what each groups objectives were? I have been planning on doing a big pulp game like yours and am curious what you came up with.
