Game Report: Adventure 17 - PETA Crusaders (1/2)

After a long break in staging games Realms Beyond is back and planning to launch a number of events. This game is billed as an Adventure (and it did live up to its name) that is based on the PETA concerns and concentrates on the liberation of certain animals ... cows, sheep, pigs, elephants, deer, horses, goats, beavers and Llamas.

[Enter Genghis, Gandhi's younger, slightly rash brother]

"You were looking for me?"

"Yes, I need to contemplate the way forward for my people. I've given initial instructions but I would like you to manage until I return in a few weeks. Can you do that for me?"

"Certainly, Brother of my mine. Not a problem."

"Good. Just pay attention to my instructions and you should do fine. I'll be back in a few weeks."


Gandhi then retreats to a cave in the local mountains to contemplate the best way to tackle these conflicting goals ... no war, but animal liberation (by force if required). After several weeks of contemplation, he feels that he has reached a balance between these goals and that he will be able to manage the tension.

He returns to find ...
