[Pulp Alley] Battle Report: THE EVIL CHURCH OF BO'

The second scenario of my campaign about "The Lost city of Themyscira" I played last year.


Scenario Background:

193X. Somewhere in Central africa. Belgian Congo. The Baker Camp. Lord Richard Francis Baker is worried. The recent skirmish took place against the fascist henchmen deprived him of important relics. He does not understand the motives of his opponents too, what benefits would get the italian government from his research? It's only an archaeological expedition...
His thoughts are interrupted by his daughter: "Dad, we received news about strange rituals in the deep of the jungle. Seem that a crazy cult has found an ancient altar of the amazons and use it for raise the dead"  :-X
Lord Baker smiles with irony: "Fine my dear, I'm not worried about their rituals, I never believed in magic.  ::) I just hope that these cultists are not hostile and they have not broken the precious altar. :? Call your uncle and Bagi, we have work to do."  :)
Meanwhile not too far away...
Captain Littorio is admiring his booty: the ancient statue from the legendary city of Themyscira."Capitano (Captain)..." his liutenant Giulietta hail him "The Bakers are moving, what are your orders?"
Capitan Littorio sighs "Ah yesss... We must still take care of our annoying friends, before enjoy the ultimate prize... Prepare the soldiers, we are moving too..."
Soon all the secrets of themyscira will be in his hands! >:D
