Chapter 5 Finale Volcano God Appeasment!

So, the team needed to rescue one of their own from the Pygmy Tribe before she could be sacrificed to the Volcano God!  Setting out from their ramshackle rooms at Trader Joe's Beach Side Resort they trekked through the jungle, beating off some giant snakes, and proceeded to enter the Cave of Tunnels that led to the Volcano's top where the sacrifice was to be held.

Traveling through the winding tunnels, they mostly managed to avoid the perilous collapsing floor sections that would have dropped them into a lower tunnel over run with .... creatures!

Arriving at the top of the Volcano Cone ... Behold:

Team Bob is to the right, Lily is on the alter to the left. Statues of Lava Men are to the top and bottom of the huge Lava pool. As they moved closer, the could spot the Pygmy's dancing and chanting. At first Chip opened fire on one of the statues of the Lava Men to find that ... they were statues of stone and nothing else!

Moving around the south end of the Lava pool they drew the notice of the Real Lava Men in the pool!

The Pygmy's offer little resistance as they prepare to throw Lily into the fire! As they get her to the lip of the pit her clothing starts to smolder and she screams as the heat gets intense!  Then, the Idol of the Volcano God stirs and attacks Amanda and Sarge, who have moved past it to take out the remaining pygmy's.

They realize the Lava Men cannot leave the pool! They finish off the last Pygmy but fail to take out the Shaman who disappears in a cloud of smoke!  "PARLEY!"  ... The Volcano God speaks with his only voice and all the team members have to take an Extreme Peril Check! and with the In action, the Idol goes dormant!!!

Lily is saved!
An action shot of some of the group working for Lily's rescue! The lady on the right played her first game as the captive Lily..... I had prepared a script for her to voice act for the group during the action... often breaking everyone up... she did rather well after we explained the format... Saturday afternoon matinee of the action hero's girlfriend in danger type situations!   Laugh Laugh
