To start with the team had to figure out how they were going to go about this. The three actual BPO agents (Markov, Stepanoff, and Putyatin) put their heads together and tried to remember everything they could about vampires… which wasn’t very much. After they cut some wood and sharpened themselves up some stakes, they requisitioned a scout squad to help track down the German soldiers that had accompanied the Vampire (hard to track a cloud of mist).
The scouts turned out to be some pretty resourceful fellows and led them straight through the enemy lines to the long abandoned, over-grown ruins of a medieval castle. After watching it for some time they discovered that there was indeed a squad of SS guards inhabiting the ruins…
Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)
The whole group snuck right up to the ruined castle – the Nazis completely unaware of their presence… The Scouts snuck right up to the room where one group of SS troopers were hanging out…
BAM! a grenade tossed in among them took out one and injured another – the third within the blast radius escaped unscathed!
They then riddled the room with Submachinegun fire and took down two more.
Psyonik Anya Putyatin caused the others brian to melt.
The MG team at the other end of the castle, alerted to the Soviets presence, set up their MG and returned fire.
Another trooper quickly snuck around the corner to try and get a flanking shot – he was quickly taken care of by Virgilovsky.
The MG team took out one of the Russian scouts, but then had to pull back when their team leader was cut down by the whithering fire from all around.
Rick (Virgilovsky), left, and Jackson (Lt. Marcov), right.
Christian (Lt. Stepanoff), left, and Amanda (Putyatin), right.
Putyatin and Marcov got a little ahead of themselves (and the others) thinking the MG team had been subdued, unfortunately there was still a bit of fight in them. They turned and fired on the two wounding Anya, and causing MArcov to duck for cover (soaked)
The Scouts caught up and finished off the SS troopers….
There was no sign of the Vampire. Interrogating the German prisoners proved useless as no one spoke any German.
They figured he must be secured within the mausoleum in the center of the castle, but could not find a way in. The heavy door was bolted from within…
They tried to set fire to the door. It was difficult to get it burning and took some time. Just after sunset the door swung open of it’s own accord and a cloud of mist seemed to escape amidst the smoke of the fire!
The BPO team ransacked the mausoleum. They found a great wooden crate filled with earth. They quickly spread the earth around the ruins – dumping much of it in the pit toilet. Then scarpered with their prisoner. They successfully made it through the German lines again getting back just before dawn! Around 10AM Lt. Stepanoff had the divisional artillery saturate the approximate coordinates of the castle with High Explosive.
They conceded that they probably didn’t eliminate the vampire… but they hoped they caused it some discomfort and made it angry…
Coming Soon to Savage Timmy’s Playhouse:
