Of course, once the secret of the stone is unlocked, the powers unleashed will alert Kalinago, a twisted, necromantic shaman who is guardian of the stones and it's secrets.
|Kalinago and a mob of those unfortunate enough to encounter him.|
|Long John Silver's crew creep through the jungle towards the nearest chief.|
|The marines form up around their captain and begin trying to put down the encroaching natives.|
|Squire Trelawney's crew also engage the natives, but their master at arms was clearly drunk last night and the powder must have got damp. The natives scream their curses and close in,|
|Israel Hands, Silver's brutish bodyguard, puts himself between his captain and the irate locals.|
|Trelawney's men clash with the natives in vicious hand to hand. The momentum of their charge puts his men into some trouble and things look bleak.|
|Silver's men hurry to provide support as Israel Hands struggles to protect his boss.|
|The highly disciplined Royal Marines form a firing line and prepare to receive the native's charge.|
|With the support of his crew, Silver clears area of warriors and captures the chief. Understanding the finer points of a cutlass, the chief sullenly capitulates (the counters are where natives were killed. All will become clear!)|
|And his men swarm up the ruins. Unfortunately, Silver's own peg leg seemed to hinder him a little...!|
|Billy Bones tries to single-handed fend off the marines. It appears he really doesn't like the Navy. Can't think why...!|
|But the marines immediately respond in true military fashion. By bringing superior firepower!|
|Miraculously, Billy Bones survives the hail of lead and falls back. But the pirates come under some real pressure as Bolitho urges his men forward.|
|As Kalinago began raising the recently fallen warriors, Trelawney's men are caught in a desperate struggle. The horrified marines fan out in panic and Silver's men flee into the jungle.|
Once again, Pulp Alley proves it's pedigree and I promise not to leave it so long again before I post the sequel!
