Arks & Archaeologists


Serial 50: A Scent and a Sound

Serial 50: By a Thread

<<First     <Previous

If you must meet and have pleasant conversation with your Best Enemy, it's good to choose a highly public and visible place, so the temptation to have the rival murdered on the spot is tempered by the fact that everyone and their dog will be a witness. It's so messy dealing with the fallout of this that both parties are willing to engage in pleasantries without resorting to violence.

In other words, this is a fantastic ploy to pull on a group of PCs whose tendency is to shoot first and think about maybe asking questions using Speak With Dead later.

In the real world of the Arks & Archaeologists universe, of course, Raiders of the Lost Ark doesn't exist. That's the premise of this entire comic, after all. But most of the other things we know and love (such as ancient pits full of snakes) do, albeit modified by the lack of Raiders of the Lost Ark:


Belloq: Why don't you join me, Dr Jones? You look hungry like the wolf.
Indy: Where's Marion?
The Monkey: Don't trust him, Indy!
GM: Cheeps only.
The Monkey: Okay, fine.
[SFX]: < cheep chitter chirirp chi-cheep >
Belloq: It was not I who brought the girl into this dirty business.
Indy: I ought to kill you right now.
Belloq: Not a very private place for a murder.
GM: Nazi goons are watching your every move.
Marion: Don't let that stop you!
The Monkey: Hey, I can't advise him, and I'm in the same room.
Marion: Challenge them to a drinking contest!
Indy: I think I can handle this.
Marion: Set fire to the place!
Indy: That was an accident, not a plan!
