Middle Game - Post Apocalyptic Mars - Actual Play

 The party continued its way through the deep red deserts of  Mars encountered a Plutoian Necromancer & his  Amazon Mercs on hover bikes. 

The players were not amused at all!
The caravan got pinned down as the hoverbikes circled & played games with the party & the Npcs
Add in a Necromancer from the Temple of The Plumed Serpent & the players had to form a very good solid plan to deal with this threat!
 The necromancer wasn't alone! This is a post apocalyptic Mars & beneath those red sands are millions of  victims of the past just waiting to be called back to undeath! Because after all their very, very hungry!
Come back they did! At least 12 of them to deal with my six players!

Now the players got the hell out of there as fast as possible & made for the horizontal treeline which is actually the start of the weird jungles of  the planet! They had to cross the first of many channel zones to get there though!
The party blasted away with the lightning cannons that were on their vehicles . They barely escaped with their hides intact

That's when the party ran into a group of Scavenger Mutants grabbing something (a chest) from a strange set of ruins!

The party drove off the Scavengers & was able to recover the chest & discovered the ruins were actually hundreds of downed space craft all within the same jungle area.
From the west came the sound of automatic gun fire & the sound of engines starting!
Suddenly the jungle was filled with the sound of more zombie & they seemed to pour out of everywhere!
The party grabbed the loot & split as fast as possible!
 The party & Npcs set up camp as soon as possible & this is where we ended for this evening.

Some quick notes on tonight's game 
  1. As the players get closer to the temple of the Plumed Serpent the encounters will be getting weirder 
  2. The serpent men & their allies are going to cause all kinds of problems for the party 
  3. The party has their hands full with some of the monsters & 'treasure' I'm throwing their way 
  4. There's a chance I may expand this into space & create a wrecked Earth based on Edgar Rice Burroughs post apocalyptic novel
