Vogue One - a Pulp Alley Game

Disclaimer: the characters and events in this game are fictitious. Any resemblance to other fictitious characters or events is purely coincidental.

Rebel forces have discovered that the Empire has created a new weapon (codename NEW CODEX ) designed to crush all opposition. If they can locate a copy of NEW CODEX and send it back to base, their armies will be prepared for the Empire's onslaught.
A few plucky rebels have volunteered to infiltrate the Empire's data repository, locate the blueprint and send it back. They have commandeered a transport ship bringing in new uniform samples: the Vogue One.
The rebels disembark from Vogue One.
The Imperial troopers.
Objectives: access NEW CODEX either in print form, or via digital download.
Transmit NEW CODEX back to the rebel base.
The rebel mystic, a traditionalist fan of a paper CODEX, heads off to investigate.
The rebel lord is a cutting age digital man himself.
Imperial troopers scramble to intercept the intruders.
These troopers can shoot straight!
Not the ideal attack formation to deploy against a flamethrower!
Predictable results!
Rebel reinforcements.
Cue the sound of thunderous stomping and a metallic head appearing through the smoke of the fight.
The imperial walker stomps closer, but the rebel mystic scans the final pages and hits the send button.
A resounding victory for the rebels! A bit of an anti-climax really, as the walker would have made things very interesting. Maybe we should have reshot some of those scenes...

    1. Cheers Andrew! The finish was a bit of a fizzer, but up until then it was good rollicking fun!
