Halloween Where Heroes Dare!

Tonight we did a special game of Where Heroes Dare! in our Club for Halloween with an Innsmouth/Lovecraft theme. The insidious Cult of Al led by the dual Grand Magisters of Al and Professor Stine contacted the Deep Ones in a bid to summon their great God, Cthulhu into the world of man. Only the world's finest Heroes could stop them. The game had 8 players, 5 good attacking, 3 bad defending with the forces of evil attempting to summon the Big C each turn. on the table were scattered Dare! locations with Grimoires to aid in summoning, Anti- Tank Rifles, Shambling Horrors, and Amulets of Banishment. The Evil forces were 2 players commanding the cultists and one player with the Deep Ones who were attempting to summon the big guy each turn. Good consisted of a 3 person team of Vigilante's known as Gangland's Doom, the Innsmouth P.D., the US Rocket Corps, the Order of Malta, and the World Adventurers of Mark C. Andrews. game length was 6 turns with fierce combat between both forces. A Rocketeer blew up in mid air wounding his team mates as deadly Cultist fire finished off Captain Achilles. The war priest Father Vile with his companion Hogan ended up getting torched at the othe end of the table, but slowly the forces of good forced evil back toward the sea. Max Archer, a detective discovered a Grimoire, but was driven insane and routed and the rocketeers discovered a hidden tunnel allowing them to out flank the Deep Ones. By turn 5 all seemed lost for evil as they suffered heavy losses in both Dire Duels and Howling Heater fights, but then Cthulhu was summoned just as all seemed lost. The great Elder Beast strode across the water as bullets fell harmlessly around it. The forces of good tried to use the found anti-tank rifle and even a disinegration ray against it, but failed to hit their mark. Hope laid in a amulet of banishment, but it was found by a Cultist who was then consumed by another Cultist who was transformed into a shambling spawn. Another turn went by with the Great One's Baleful eye destroyin the disinegration ray and the Professor carrying it as the Heroes tried one last time to bring him down, but failed. Cthulhu had risen from the black sea and now all mankind must run in terror...


Big thanks go to Al and Rlee for all their Deep Ones and Cultists, Mark for his Roy Chapman Andrews team, Mongo for the Giant Cthulhu, Captain Roshon for his docks, Six Feet Under Games for the tables, and all the players for slinging it out.
