After a considerably delay, the notes for Episode 15 of Weird Pulp are now online.
In the aftermath of the battle on the Unsichtbare Hand (“Unseen Hand”) our heroes have seized control of a German zeppelin after killing or incapacitating much of its crew. At the same time, their original transport – a Pam Am clipper-style seaplane called The Lucky Lady — had gone missing when a prisoner the Wardens had taken escaped his bonds and attacked the pilot, Jason Baxter.
After discovering that their pilot had survived his close encounter and saved the Lucky Lady, the Wardens proceeded to Paris where they booked tickets on the Orient Express to Istanbul.

Jian Zao (“Sword of Morning”) of the Red Hand Triad was desperate. His brother, Jian Zhang, had fallen under the sway of opium, and had become a frequent customer at the Green Dragon Opium Den.
The den, an uncommon sight in New York City in the 1930s, was opened by Ling Si, a Chinese herbalist, drug trafficker, and sorcerer in October 1937. Within weeks the den had captured dozens with its opium-tainted dreams.
Jian Zao could not rely on his own resources to save his brother, having been warned by his leader to leave the den alone. Desperate to save his brother, he approached Wardens Richard Shen and Andrew Buchanan to see if they could help.

After a successful playtest of Weird Pulp and Savage Worlds, we’ve decided to launch a short-to-mid-range Weird Pulp campaign. The campaign is expected to run from early Spring 2014 through Summer 2014.
It will follow the adventures of a group known as the Wardens, a loosely-knit secret society with offices in Bombay, Cairo, New York, London, San Francisco, and Hong Kong. It is an organization comprised of men and women of action — troubleshooters, adventurers, and mystics — who have sworn an oath to protect the innocent from threats both mundane and magical.
