After may reads and again watching Dave's wonderful videos, I wanted to try the solo deck and the Blood Sacrifice scenario . I had a Conan league set and raised a Thusla Doom league to fight them. the scenario i laid out and decided a princess as the victim and major plot point, (my camera took some very bad pictures so below are the best.) The game played very well and I cant story board the turns as normal due to the pictures.
Thusla Dooms league
minor plot points
Conan and friends
Doom enters the game
sir hiss failed miserably and lasted like 5 seconds.
Doom warriors and gang
Subotai made short work of them
Thorsen spent 2 turns stationary.
Conan and Valeria engaged Rexor over a plot point
Doom vanquishing the priestess to get his first plot point with ease
the evil priest had a time on the second plot point he did his best
Rexor is downed and his point stolen by Valeria
at last the plot point is his
Alko runs and tries his best but
Turn 5 the monster turned up almost on top of Conan
the battle starts and blows are exchanged
Valeria joins the frey and still the beast wont fall
Doom goes for the princes and victory he is stopped by very bad dice rolls and loads of swearing is heard from the princes who resists his attentions
Aiko and Thorsten dance and fight around the plot point
the evil priest steals if as they fight
Cona bravely still battles the huge monster
Subotai tries to stop Doom arrows bouncing off him as he at lest wrestles the princess off the alter
he grabs her and makes a run for it
claws and lades still clash and the heroes fight the huge thing
the evil priest succumbs to his adventures and fall flat as Doom escapes off with the prize
Victory to Thusla Doom as Conan is still fighting the monster.
Very enjoyable game and the solo deck work, I again apologise fr the poor showing of pictures, but hope it gave some feel to the game. Pulp alley worked fine i did not use the extras you can from the Leagues book on Fantasy games but perhaps next time.
thank you Dave for inspiration as always

After along time I watched the wonderful videos from Dave at Pulp Alley on game play, and was infused to try again I opened my files and re read now with a better understanding of the game (I hoped). so I set about playing a game I read and purchased the solo deck and thought this would be the test game of my new found knowledge.
My leagues I had already, Ipy the Pharaohs favourite and her companions against the un-dead company of the dreaded Akanaton. To find the blood gems lost in the jungle after a ritual.
Akanaton, Anck Su Namun, 2 guards 2 cobras 3 gangs of Zombies and 2 Robbers
Ipy, Ast her adventurer friend, 2 bodyguards a group of slave girls and chip the Dog
basic starting scenario 4 plot points perisl near the points
Akanaton and his un-dead enter the area "Find the gems my followers"
Ipy rushes into the land intent on getting the gems before the dreaded one.
A cobra slides forward to find victims
the Tomb robber advances inot the camp seeking the gems
Anck Su Namun passes the perils and grabs the first point her power brushing aside any peril
Akanaton enters the camp issuing orders to move fast and get the prizes
Ipy spots the lurking Cobra and strikes with her throwing stones
the reptile is out of the game
The robber spots the slave girls and attack thinking poor defenceless girls
Ast gets past a plot point and is wounded in the process
A gurad fails and is down trying to grasp a gem
the slave girls fight the robber he is outnumbered and realise his folly, he falls to there skills
another robber falls to Ipys stones
Akanatons magics fell a loyal bodyguard
A guard rushes the slave girls
Chip dives into a mob of Zombies
But is taken out by there claws and teeth
a loyal bodyguard is surrounded
Ast now recoved recives another group of Undead who race at her
she falls on there first attacks
But rises and dispatches the un-dead in a sweep of her blade
the slave girls fall as the guard is knocked out the evil cobra sealing there fate
Ipy saves the Loyal bodyguard from the last un-dead
Anck Su Namun gets another plot point, but is spotted by Ast
Ipy seeks her friends who are fallen around seeing Ast attack Anck Su Namun
the fight ensues, dark magic against hardened steel
a guard falls attempting the final plot point
Ast and Anck Su Namun drop each other as the last #cobra seeks an easy kil on the fallen fighter
Akanaton grabs the plot point he believes he has victory
but the Cobra falls to a weakened Ast and then both her and Anck Su Namun are out of the game, leaving there 3 plot points
Ipy grabs the final plot points giving her 3 to Akanatons 1 victory to the brave girl
Conclusions, really enjoyed it and found it flowed very well the solo cards are great. I believe i have mastered the concepts about 85% and will now play more.
Thank you Dave and co for the push back inot the game......
