It was a Dark and Stormy Night...
Sometimes an idea is so good, it just has to be done!
We'd been wanting to play Ganesha Games' Fear and Faith for a long time. The opportunity to add in the supplement Kooky Teenage Monster Hunters made this a definite must. But for a long time it sat on whatever a PDF's equivalent is to a bookshelf as we couldn't decide on which miniatures to use. And then one day I came up with a wild plan. Why not see if my son would mind if we used his Lego Monster Fighters sets for our games? The answer was a definite, "Oh, heck, yeah!" and I've got to be honest and say I'm absolutely delighted by his response, because what has happened as a result of this decision has been so good that I just had to share it with you all!
Let me begin by introducing you to the Monster Fighters. From left to right we have Jack McHammer whose face is partially hidden by the enormous Rifle wielded by Major Quinton Steele. In the middle is Frank Rock. Then we have Ann Lee who famously uses ammunition as a hair grip. Finally we have Sir Rodney Rathbone, famous investigator and fearless leader of our band.
Then it came to determining the hour at which our encounter would take place. The result was Dawn. We would begin in the dark of night, but on the second Turnover rolled by the Lord Vampyre's player, dawn would break and give all vampires -1 to their Quality checks.
We then rolled for adverse weather conditions. Lo and behold we got some. We rolled again and maxed out with a storm producing fog and rain which limited shooting to short distance. I was so glad Major Quinton Steele had that assault rifle with him...!
And so our adventure began on a dark and stormy night...!
Which is obviously what happened, because you'll notice Sir Rodney no longer has a base. Thankfully the action dice began to swing the other way, and Ann Lee was able to rush into range and ready herself for a shot.
