trying to finish my new Pulp Alley league to be ready when the club’s new
campaign kicks off this Monday. One member, a bio-mechanical
marksman, is already finished.
the box was full of just the minis I had been waiting for.
we have Anders Einstein, illegitimate son of Albert, and something
of a bio-mechanical genius long before that term was even thought of. Our
definition of sane might not encompass him, but what he lacks in sanity he sure
compensates in brain capacity.
has made some improvements on himself, and therefore needs to wear a
tight-fitting helmet over his exposed brain…
his side we see Greta de Laval, a forgotten daughter of the inventor Gustav de Laval. Greta
got a fascination for steam engines from her father, and during an experiment
with a high-pressure miniaturised steam engine of her own design there was an
accident and Greta was maimed by shrapnel and steam.
was saved by her lover, Anders, who did experiments of his own in the room
beside hers. He saved what he could of her body and grafted what was left of
Greta to his experimental bio-mechanical limbs.
two years a new and very improved Greta moved out of the labs. She could
possibly pass of as an ordinary human if she was dressed from head to toe but
one look at her eyes gave her away. They were silvery.
just say that her improved looks did not go down well with her relatives, who
promptly removed all references of her from family history.
is a perfect partner for Anders. Genius, not totally stable and on the look-out
for anything that might improve their abilities, be it from this world or
have continued their experiments and the successful candidates have joined
their band of explorers.
