Our last game of the weekend was a first outing for 7TV, the new cult TV rules which Lenin had picked up at Salute. He picked one of the scenarios from the rule book to start us off:
Satellites are going missing. Clues lead our heroes to investigate a private factory, but attempts to enter are blocked by heavy-handed security. Unwilling to wait for their bureaucratic superiors to get official access, the heroes disable the security systems and sneak in. Can they find further evidence of their enemy’s plans?
With two male heroes at my disposal I named them, rolled up their stats and decided on the gadgets - and so Wellington Duo and Vasya Pupkin were born...
At this point the guards above spotted them and they came under a hail of fire from the walkway and one of the chemical tanks. The two agents split up with Wellington rushing around the chemical tank and Vasya fixing a device to the column. Once attached Vasya sprinted away and there was an enormous explosion as the micro explosive detonated. The walkway collapsed eliminating the guard on it and blocking the way of the ground level guard; leaving the one on top of the chemical tank as the only immediate problem (the other four guards rushing to the scene were a future issue!).
Pupkin had taken refuge behind some barrels but he was discovered by another guard, who had be sent to investigate by the chief henchman. He easily dispatched the guard but then had to engage in a deadly game of hide and seek to avoid the main heavy. Slipping away he managed to sprint out of sight and find cover behind some pipes. Meanwhile Wellington was making his way undetected via a rather circuitous path to join up with him.
The chief henchman wasn't fooled for long and accompanied by another guard started a to search for Vasya. With discovery imminent Vasya used his miniature laser to cut through one of the pipes near the guards and the contents burst out and almost immediately caught fire. The guard caught the full force of the blast but the chief henchman was only thrown to the ground.
All in all a really fun game and 7TV are likely to return to the table in the not too distant future.
