[Pulp Alley Battle Report]: G.I. Joe: The (Phantom Agent) Skull Ring

Some days ago I received my special reward, the Pulp Alley Phantom Agent Skull Ring.
Earn after 10 Battle Reports I've done for PA.

Then I decided to play a Solo Game using the Skull Ring as a major plot point 😉


Background:
1983. Somewhere in the jungle of Congo.
COBRA Commander, in his perennial quest for the ultimate weapon, has knew about a mystical giant skull ring that the legends tell it was worn by Titans.
Anyone that could own the Skull Ring would get divine powers. The power of a Titan.
Then he personally led a small force of his cobra troopers with his loyal Storm shadow to the place where the ring should be guarded.
The ring is watched by a tribe of native female warriors. The Bana Tribe. These dark skinned amazons will not tolerate intrusion.
Meanwhile, the G.I. Joes have knew too about the legend about the Skull Ring and that the COBRAs are interested.
Snake Eyes and Timber were sent to investigate.

Storm Shadow: "This time our fight is a draw, but I will be the winner, next time..."
COBRA Commander: NOOOOOOOooo!! Now I will never rule the World!" 😭
