More Shattered Space Port City State - Post Apocalyptic Mars

 The party found itself within the older main city tonight. They figured they were safe & decided to do a bit of investigating into the city itself. That is until they ran afoul of the assassin's guild carrying out its latest contract!

The 4th level fighter proved to be a bit of a tough call for them. The fact he wasn't backing off from his target proved rather bothersome.
 He was armed with a radium pistol & energy sword. The radium pistol kept them very much pinned down as the bastard moved in for the kill on his target. Each shot did 1d8 points of damage. The weapon was loaded with gyro jet ammo!

The city guards moved in & the assassin escaped in a puff of smoke. His target a minor imperial family member escaped with his life though! The party fouling his plans!

The city guard questioned them for hours grilling the party about its whereabouts, motives, etc. The players rolled terribly so I tacked on an extra 1d3 hours more of grilling!

In the meantime they were able to get back to the inn where they were staying only to almost get carved up by an angry green mutant  warrior merc.

A couple of sword thrusts, charisma rolls, & finally an explanation later on both parties they were able to find out that the party had crossed into a blood feud between mutant & green man groups.
 This put them at odds with two different rival green men working the merc circuit.
There were matters of honor & contracts at stack here! The party was able to compensate the merc & get the heads up about another party of green men who wants their heads!
The party also observed the minor noblemen again & this time with a group of red Amazon warrior adventurer women!

The girls were armed to the teeth & their slaves were loading up supplies, ammo, etc. they looked like they were getting ready for war!
 The party decide to sneak around & get a closer look at the ladies set up! They wandered down the wrong alley as they came face to face with 7 Martian 'dogs'. These 3 hit point animals were hungry, rabid, & itching for a fight!
The fight seemed to go on for a dog's age! Three of the party took damage & they finally killed the dogs off. 
By the time the players got a chance to see what the warrior women were up to they were long gone! They left a hover vortex in their wake & some very interested characters! 
If your wondering where the dogs came from they were brought off world before the Atomic Wars! 
The party did a quick investigation in the neighborhood where the Amazons were staying & with the help of a very noisy landlady & a well placed bribe they came up with an alien shield from one of the women's former rooms! The land lady overheard them talking about a location deep within the wasteland called the Temple of The Plumed Serpent!
The party heard noise coming from out side of the room they were in. A quick look out spied 3 heavily armed wolfoid mercs! This species is a leftover from the glory days of the space port! They did not want to confront a group of heavily armed mercs at this date & left the house as quickly as possible! 

The game ended with the party moving through the city back streets as fast as possible & I let them go back to their inn to lick their wounds & heal. They were in no shape to really take on the wolfoid scouts  at all tonight!
 We were using a bunch of the Bronze Age Minis again tonight! If you want to see any of those go Here
