[Pulp Alley] Battle Report: The Adventure Begins!

Here the Battle Report of my Pulp Alley solo game I played last year. It was the first scenario of my campaign about "The Lost city of Themyscira" (still in play).

THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!

Scenario Background:

193X. The Baker Espedition, led by Lord Richard Francis Baker, has found a mysterious greek statuette in the deep of the belgian congo jungle.
This artificat could confirm the bizarre theories of Lord Baker about an ancient civilization of greek amazons that fled in the deep of africa during ancient times and rebuilded the legendary city of Themyscira.
The amazons were led by their last queen: Talestri. She decided that her people must find a safe place where hide from a world now only dominated from men.
Strangely some legeds tell about the god-like powers of the queen, her unnatural green skin and a huge cyclops servant. However Lord Baker consider these just tales, very common in Greek mythology.
The Legio Prometheus led from Capitan Littorio consider these legends closer to reality. The Cabinet RS/33 has secret informations about the real nature of the powers of the forgotten goddess-queen and want to investigate.

The scenario was a basic "smash & Grab".

TURN 1

The Baker Expedition has the initiative.
Lord Baker approaches with emotion to the ancient relic, a minor plot point:

Errol climbs up a nearby hill, noticing a strange bronze bas-relief:

Laura and Winston move quickly towards the next target, the statue on a stone pillar, however they immediatelly stop, there is a quicksand!
Laura "Wow! Careful Winston! It's not good time for a sand bath..." :-X
Winston "Wooouff?" droooooolll  ;D

Laura note the italians advancing, so she open fire, at least one of the askari is down, another kill is thwarted thanks to the cover.
Bagi run and stops in front of the poisonous snake, she will be ready to win the challange of the perilous area in the next turn.
Giulietta demand information to the native girl (minor plot), the challange is win but the reward card don't consider the plot point won and no real reward is gained.  :'(
Giulietta "Ciao, bella bambina (Hi pretty child), do you know about some strange ancient relics in the area?"  :D
native girl "... "  ???
Giulietta "oh, I'm sorry just a second and I will translate from my language to yours... Damn! WHERE is my congo dialects book for dummies?"  :-[
meanwhile the askari move, they open fire to Winston but nothing happen.

the blackshirts move and open fire to Bagi, they are lucky and bagi is down, she will not recover during the next health check :(
Blackshirt sergeant: "Ah! Ottimo (Fine)! The first booty of the day!"  >:D
Errol "NO Bagi! Damn fascists, you will pay for hurting her!"  >:(
 


Capitan Littorio runs to the major plot point while the paratroopers are behind him. all of them open fire too, but nothing of serious is done.
Capitan Littorio: "Soon the mysteries inside these precious relics will be OURS.... Nobody will stop us THIS time!"  >:D

The legio has the initiative, but wait the movements of the bakers, laura and winston try to avoid the quicksand, laura win the challange and open fire to capitan littorio and one of the paratroopers, she injure them, but she herself is injured. Winston is unlucky too, he fail the challange and will not recover from the Health check. The legio choice to take again the inititiative, so one of the paratroopers move and shot to laura, she is down now.
Laura "Poor Winston! And I'm not in better condition... ouch!"  :'(

The blackshirts move and open fire to Errol, they injure him but receive two hits and so two of them are down.

The other paratrooper run to the next minor plot.
