The great golden sphinx rests in the middle of the open amid the termite mounds. A tempting enticement for the Countess and her minions.
As the Countess advances, two of the lizardmen slink into the station to take up a defensive position and control of the gold mask.
Zelda and the Countess move toward the gold Sphinx. Kro-Ak bursts from the jungle, charging in a ferocious assault through the termite mounds.
Kro-Ak is soon joined by his minions as the ambush turns into a full-blown fight. Shots zip past and even ricochet off of the hug frog beast. Some of the Countess' lackies freeze when confronted by his might, unable to do shoot.
Theo, having made his way to the station, finds himself engaged in a firefight with lizardmen hurling arrows from in and around the station. Even though they seek shelter in the door ways, Theo is still able to get a clear shot.
Bronzini support Theo's advance with his BAR belshing .30 bullets. While the lizardmen seek shelter in the station, his hail of fire still gets through. Unfortunately, the beastly adversaries are able to weather the fire.
|Iken enjoys the success of his slimy minions.|
|Caught in a moment of mirth, I look on at a nasty battle between the two leagues.|
While Theo is busy dodging poisoned arrows and laying down rifle fire, one of the lizardmen slips from the station with the gold mask (we used color-coded markers to designate who had what plot point) and sneaks into the trees to take cover.
