5150 Scenario 1

 

This was the first game of 5150 that Ruarigh and I played. We took it pretty slowly and carefully to make sure we were using the rules correctly but it still made for a tense and interesting game.

In the course of the game Red took a hit and ended up out of the fight. She recovered but suffered a loss in Rep (down to 2). She still proved useful in the next encounter.

During this game, Achilles took a hit that put him out of the fight. He then failed a recovery check after the game and died in hospital. Medusa was also taken out of the fight, largely because she failed to activate due to being a dumbass. As a result, she was wounded and her REP went down to 3.

 

Alpha's Diary

Alpha kept watch on the old book store from the park. She knew that Old Man Steptoe was also on the case and would be looking for the Manx Cat too. Achilles was on the roof of the cinema, while Medusa was lurking inside. With any luck, Artemis would have the information from Voodoo Jake and they could all be on their way without a fight. She snorted to herself gently; like that would ever happen.

 

When the Manx Cat was stolen again, it seemed like a golden opportunity for them all. The Cat was a tart. It did not care who held it. But it certainly seemed to attract an awful lot of attention from all the wrong people. There was clearly something special about the little black statuette. Alpha could not see it but there were plenty with money that could.

 

The radio crackled and she heard Achilles' voice, "They're here. I am going to get closer and try to take them out". Alpha cursed. She contacted Artemis, who seemed no closer to resolving things and then told Medusa to hold station. The crackle of gunfire told her that Achilles had found Steptoe and sons (even if some of those sons were daughters). She moved closer through the park. Then Achilles came charging around her side of the cinema and suddenly it all got hectic. Achilles fired at Steptoe, Steptoe returned fire. Achilles went down. Then there was gunfire from the cinema and she could no longer contact Medusa. Alpha waited. One of Steptoe's sons, a pretty blonde, emerged from the fire exit of the cinema. Alpha fired and the blonde fell backwards through the door. Then she saw Steptoe himself and fired. Steptoe went down. She waited. No one else showed for a while so she went to investigate. Achilles was badly hurt, and Medusa had a nasty but survivable wound. She found three of Steptoe's mob wounded, including Steptoe himself. The other one must have run away. Trust Steptoe to recruit "loyal" troops!

 

Artemis had the information now so they carried their wounded off and left to search for the Manx Cat.
