Some weeks ago we played the “Snipe Hunt” scenario from This is Not a Test, with four rival warbands searching radiation-scarred urban ruins for items of value:
- A band of Raiders, led by the feared warlord and deadly sniper Fifty Cal Sal.
- A group of Preservers, led by scientist Madame Curie, and accompanied by a couple of bots.
- Mutants from The Brotherhood of REM, led by Archmandrite Geiger.
- Finally, my own group of Caravaners, led by the ever-resourceful Arnold Atomix.
Most of the game saw the Raiders squaring off against the Mutants, while the Preservers skirmished with the Caravaners. Despite an early lead by the Mutants, Fifty Cal Sal and her band of outlaws would ultimately emerge victorious.
