"We have wild work to do!" game report.
A recent game of Fistful of Lead, Tales of Horror. Two groups representing the forces of good take on an Undead Master and his minions.
Vampire Hunters Player briefing:
“Professor DeFenzles studied the telegram he had just been handed then turned and looked at the well dressed gentleman standing next to him. “Who is it from?” enquired Captain Archibald Fellows.
“It’s from my contact at Lloyd’s of London.The ship we have been tracking from Eastern Europe is scheduled to arrive at the Limehouse wharf at 3pm, sooner than we had imagined. We had better be quick for “The Dead travel fast”.
“What do you mean?” Responded Captain Fellows”
“The Devil and his concubines must be caught and destroyed before the sun sets or he will escape us again. Quick, there is no time to lose fetch your revolver and the silver cross I gave you. We have wild work to do!”
Police Limehouse devision briefing:
“Inspector Abeline was sitting at his desk staring at his notebook when the door opened and Sergeant Godley hurried in. “Sir, we have information to suggest another shipment of Stolen cargo is being moved and delivered upriver to the Limehouse docks. We have reason to believe it’s being received by that Northern gang “Bibbly’s Bashers” who are trying to muscle in on some of the London gangs.
”Best get going Sergeant, we’ll have to be quick to catch them. Bring your shotgun, I’ve heard they are usually armed and are not afraid to use the shooters!...
The Dead do indeed travel fast as the Masters crate had already been taken safely from ship to shore. Would the Hunters and police arrive in time to stop the deadly cargo from disappearing into the fog ridden London night?...
