Episode 24 sees us back in familiar 40k territory but with unfamiliar rules that make their Minions debut. Following up on the Bolterpalooza episodes, the Minions play Fantasy Flight's second adventure, Oblivion's Edge. This time around however it's the FATE engine that's under the hood.
So let's get down to business. Alien crushing, bolter firing, power fist punching, praising the Emperor business. The heroes may have eliminated the Genestealer threat by exterminating the Brood Lord and putting down the local rebellion, but now the shadow of Hive Fleet Dagon casts its shroud over the planet. Huge bio-organic drop pods hit dirtside, spewing forth chitinous terrors. The locals are on the menu. Guess who just came to dinner.
We follow up on Bolterpalooza episodes #1 and #2 with the sequel, Oblivion's Edge. Turning things a tad on their ear however, we eschew Fantasy Flight's system altogether and substitute it for Starblazer Adventures powered by the FATE engine. All the usual Minions zaniness applies within, so kick back, reload your bolter, and enjoy.
