After along time I watched the wonderful videos from Dave at Pulp Alley on game play, and was infused to try again I opened my files and re read now with a better understanding of the game (I hoped). so I set about playing a game I read and purchased the solo deck and thought this would be the test game of my new found knowledge.
My leagues I had already, Ipy the Pharaohs favourite and her companions against the un-dead company of the dreaded Akanaton. To find the blood gems lost in the jungle after a ritual.
Akanaton, Anck Su Namun, 2 guards 2 cobras 3 gangs of Zombies and 2 Robbers
Ipy, Ast her adventurer friend, 2 bodyguards a group of slave girls and chip the Dog
basic starting scenario 4 plot points perisl near the points
Akanaton and his un-dead enter the area "Find the gems my followers"
Ipy rushes into the land intent on getting the gems before the dreaded one.
A cobra slides forward to find victims
the Tomb robber advances inot the camp seeking the gems
Anck Su Namun passes the perils and grabs the first point her power brushing aside any peril
Akanaton enters the camp issuing orders to move fast and get the prizes
Ipy spots the lurking Cobra and strikes with her throwing stones
the reptile is out of the game
The robber spots the slave girls and attack thinking poor defenceless girls
Ast gets past a plot point and is wounded in the process
A gurad fails and is down trying to grasp a gem
the slave girls fight the robber he is outnumbered and realise his folly, he falls to there skills
another robber falls to Ipys stones
Akanatons magics fell a loyal bodyguard
A guard rushes the slave girls
Chip dives into a mob of Zombies
But is taken out by there claws and teeth
a loyal bodyguard is surrounded
Ast now recoved recives another group of Undead who race at her
she falls on there first attacks
But rises and dispatches the un-dead in a sweep of her blade
the slave girls fall as the guard is knocked out the evil cobra sealing there fate
Ipy saves the Loyal bodyguard from the last un-dead
Anck Su Namun gets another plot point, but is spotted by Ast
Ipy seeks her friends who are fallen around seeing Ast attack Anck Su Namun
the fight ensues, dark magic against hardened steel
a guard falls attempting the final plot point
Ast and Anck Su Namun drop each other as the last #cobra seeks an easy kil on the fallen fighter
Akanaton grabs the plot point he believes he has victory
but the Cobra falls to a weakened Ast and then both her and Anck Su Namun are out of the game, leaving there 3 plot points
Ipy grabs the final plot points giving her 3 to Akanatons 1 victory to the brave girl
Conclusions, really enjoyed it and found it flowed very well the solo cards are great. I believe i have mastered the concepts about 85% and will now play more.
Thank you Dave and co for the push back inot the game......

Got the new Osprey Dracula's america gamer book, and was eager to give it a good go. I had tried the combat system and was delight with the contents of the book, I as always have ideas in my head so laid out 2 posses one good the other Vamps and decided to set in a town full of Zombies, the name of the town changed so much it was lost. the war between the dead and the Vampires had caught the attention of count Zero and his band of darkness. The heavenly host had called the warrior Una Tye to destroy the count and the un-dead in one fight, she gathered her friends and other host agents to wipe the dark out of the town
Count Zero, Miss Abby and 4 vampire fledglings and 2 gun men
Miss Tye, Cassandra the heavenly Seraphim , Annie and Drago and his posse of outlaws, the Zombies i placed in the town and would attack anyone close. playing scenario 1 and begin the carnage.
Una's people take up places and vantage points
Cassandra and the rifle men take to the roofs
Zeros gang sneaked into town
He leads and dives inot the frey
Blowing a zombie away and feels confidant he will deal with the undead.
Cassandra lands on a wagon and drops a zombie who rises slowly form the gunshot
Miss Abby gunslinger elite blasts a path inot the town dropping the Zombies
Una shoots down the risen zombie who rises again the un-dead wont stay down
Abby gathers the vampires to wipe the town clean
Zeros rampage goes un-checked as he shoots down the advancing zombies
more fall to his six shooters
Abby stands beside him and takes out more
the vampires make short work of the living dead
Cassandra spots Count Zero and blazes away with her silver pistols
The count is struck and snarls contempt at the angel, "destroy them my children he cries"
the vampires take to the roofs and to flank the heavenly host
Abby shoots down poor Mary, joyful in her wake
a gun man falls to a stalking zombie who rips him apart
Miss abby faces the heost and laughs blazing away at them
Cassandra finds her self confronting Zero and his Vampires
Una stands off and in a shoot out Miss Abby falls
Cassandra lands on the hang mans post and is attacked with claws and fangs she faces them head on
Dispatching both vile females in the bloody melee
exhausted and wounded she is victorious
Drago finishes off Miss Abby
and then faces a gun ma in deadly gun battle
Una shoots him down
A furious Count Zero opens fir on Cassandra felling the host on a blaze of gunfire
his minions fallen around him he cries to the remaining posse to attack without mercy
Annie is swamped by the vampires
Ned fires at the standing vampires
Zero faces Una and she gets the drop and shoots him down
is it over?
no the Count as all good vampires raises up and guns blazing shoots down Una.
he smiles and slowly walks then kneels
and drinks the blood of the fallen host leader, restoring his power and wounds, the host posse fall back , Zero is victorious!
Score was 13 to 8 , very enjoyable I maybe got things wrong on certain issues but was a good and fun game. like most new skirmish they create there own story lines. liked the combat and how it played very much . Recommended to any who has a collection of vamps and cowboys or VSF or anything really its that adaptable. 10/10
