An action report from the colonial frontier of German Imperial Indochina:
Rumors of a scientific breakthrough, code named "Dragon Bones," have reached Imperial Nippon Headquarters (INHQ). A friendly agent has informed the INHQ that Dr. Hans Becherglas has set up a temporary lab near the junture of the borders of Mainland Nippon, and the colonies of German Imperial Indochina and French Southeast Asia. Lieutenant Tatsuya Mizune (auto pistol and katana) has been ordered to take a small Imperial Nipponese Navy (INN) patrol into German territory to attain data on Dragon Bones, and if possible convince Dr. Hans Becherglas to "visit" Imperial Headquarters. At his disposal are Ensign Yoko Tsukasa (auto pistol and katana), Light Machine Gunner Akutagawa, and riflemen Mikuni, Sakai, Tsurata and Yachigusa, (rifle and bayonets).
Unknown to INHQ, a "Private Party" is also interested in the rumors of Dragon Bones. Captain Patsy Seemaster (.445 Webly) has been "contracted" to do a little research into the background of these stories. Her hand picked crew is assisted by Lieutenant Commander Lewis V. Dartnell RNR (Auto Pistol), the "unoffical" Government representative. First Mate Bud Browman (rifle) keeps the crew in line. This is a tough job as he has to handle the likes of "Mad Eye" Swensda with his lovely Tommy Gun, Chief Engineer "Scot" Macantosh (a cool master of his BAR), and bully boys Jack Balance and Nyle Kadet (rifles). A side adventure is to raid the local brewery for some quality booze.
The center of the rumors, Dr. Hans Becherglas ("hand bombs") and his assistant the mysterious Rikki Spimaser (auto pistol). Oberst Ewrin Dikkmann (Luger) and his aide Shultz (rifle and bayonet) keep a governmental eye on the doctor and his discoveries. Dr. Hans has been forced to locate in this remote location due to the special circumstances of his gaining the "Dragon Bones" from Kapitän Himmelskrieger and his air troopers (see The Mystery of the Dragon Bones http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=27011.0
. He wants to finish his initial studies and then move the specimen to proper research facilities in a more civilized environment. Local security for the good Doctor and his experiments falls to Oberleutnant Karl Kriegsmank (Mauser machine pistol) and his seven Jagers - Achim, Dieter, Ernst, Eugen, Gunter, Hannes and Tinker (rifles and bayonets).
The brewery crew includes Sébastien de Tassigny, master brewer (heavy revolver) his good friend Bruno Schultzschalter (automatic pistol) portman Iman D'zul (heavy dagger) Johan Braumeister, owner (double barrel shotgun) and hiding in the court yard, Katrina Barpige the barmaid (a stout bottle club of Braumeister '29). The brewery is full of barrels of vintage liqueurs.
The sides are ready, the game begins-
