The second part of my first solo tests with Stay Frosty, a cool Sci-Fi RPG full of alien bugs and explosions.
The current situation is that St.Galven is badly hurt (1 HP left), while Rosek and Benny still are in good shape. Tension level is 4. The squad has just find out that the mission’s objective is near.
As soon as they enter the board, the three heroes are confronted by a dinosaur (5 HD). All they soldiers shoot their weapons and they all hit. The dino is killed, but now Benny’s bazooka is out of grenades. Tension is at 5.
They reach the objective, which is guarded by an armoured giant (3 HD). Galven reaches the objective and places the explosive charge on Arkek’s communication device (the high tension grants an additional action per round). The other two soldiers dispatch the giant (Benny is now bravely fighting hand to hand). The charge explodes: mission accomplished!
I decided the squad has to go through a last board before reaching safety. They are confronted by a single collaborationist soldier, who hits Galven: he is down to 0 HP and his WILL is reduced by the hit. Rosek shoots down the enemy.
Tension explodes! While they are medicating Galven, they see something moving among the ruins. These are frantic moments, but all pass their Willpower save roll.
A final encounter with a giant armed with deadly tentacles. Rosek’s rifle strikes again and Benny attacks hand-to-hand and finishes the last enemy.
