Soerabaja Manhunt sees our intrepid leagues travelling to Dutch Indonesia in search of the Old Sailor, last survivor of the Darrow expedition to Perilous Island. Who will find him and the latitude and longitude of the mysterious Perilous Island. The scene is set with the five locations that the Old Sailor is known to frequent, Gimpy's Bar, St Lawrence Catholic Mission, Cafe Perkasa, Red Bridge Hostel and De Zondebok & Het Zwarte Schaap Pub, together with the old dockside. Looking in my store of available terrain, we came up with the following improvisations; some Terra-Block wooden platforms were put to use to make a dockside and some pontoons and some additional pieces of Terra-Blocks were used to make a Bar and a Cafe, while two of the Sally 4th Eastern Front cottages were put to use to represent the Pub and the Hostel. The riverboat is from Redoubt and the Church is a resin casting that I made many years ago.
The bars, cafes, pub and hostel are perilous area and the two flocks of geese are randomly moving extremely perilous areas!
Manfred, leader of the Followers of the Black Itza has managed to raise a couple of Zombies to bring along as back up. These combined with his three hell hounds really reduce his ability to pass through an area unnoticed!
Both leagues split up and head for the Old Sailors known haunts, to commence door to door enquiries. Davies is held up by a snarling Hell Hound.
Manfred uses his gentle persuasion on the old man in the bar, and remarkably he has a good idea where the Old Sailor can be found.
This time it is Blythe who is held up by a snarling, drooling, glistening, giant red canine. The goats however, do not look to be that bothered!
Dr Jones and Lady Elaine have a word with the cafe owner, but he has not seen the Sailor for days.
In the Schapp Pub all is not going well for the Royal Archaeological Society, for their Leader Professor Snow it was just one thing after another, spiked shorts followed by a hidden assailant left him down and out cold!
Manfred is the first to be able to talk to the Old Sailor as the RAS members are held up by Hell Hounds and other dark underhand tricks.
A little persuasion and Manfred departs, cackling, co-ordinates in hand.
