Doctor Who: Exterminate! Report: The Daleks Verses Sea Devils - Part Two

A REINFORCED SEA DEVIL RAIDING PARTY ATTACKS A DALEK PATROL ON THE BEACH

"The story so far… It is the year 2164 A.D. and the Daleks have conquered the Earth. However, their invasion has awoken a contingent of Sea Devils from their undersea sleeping chambers. Determined to rid their world of this latest threat to their global domination the Sea Devils launch a huge attack from the sea against the nearest Dalek Metropolis..."

THE ORIGINAL TABLETOP - A BEACH ON EARTH

Doctor Who: Exterminate! Report: The Daleks Verses Sea Devils - Part One


The southernmost Dalek trundled past the Southern Outcrop towards Objective Six and its lucrative four Victory Points. The Dalek Leader headed south-east towards the location of the Sea Devil Overlord, and the lone drone by the North Outcrop moved east towards Objective Two. In response the Sea Devil Ancients hiding in the surf near Objective Six were joined by three Sea Devil reinforcements, whilst their Warlord ducked north behind the Central Outcrop. To the north two Sea Devils made their way towards the lone Dalek drone, readying their Hand Weapons for close combat.


With a harsh-sounding "Exterminate!" the Daleks opened fire upon the slow-approaching Sea Devils, with those drones who hadn't moved being able to utilise their disruptors at "Full Blast"; meaning they rolled eight unmodified dice to hit as opposed to the usual four. Resultantly, one of the Sea Devil Ancients and a member of the Sea Devil reinforcements both fell dead with a brief gurgle. The northernmost Dalek drone also managed to shock one of the Aquatic Silurians near him by Objective Two and then exterminated it courtesy of the Adventure Card "Upgrade: Maximum Extermination".

THE SEA DEVILS MOVE WESTWARDS FROM THE OCEAN TOWARDS THE DALEK FORCES

Suddenly faced with a surprising shift in fortune which had the Dalek faction leading 6-5 in Victory Points, the Sea Devils utilised the Adventure Card "Sonic Summoning" to "return up to three Exterminated Sea Devil Characters to the game." These emerged from the depths near the south-east corner of the ocean across from Objective Four. To the horror of the amphibious Earth reptiles' Overlord though, one of the few Daleks who hadn't yet fired made its way to Objective Three and revealed it to be worth 5 Victory Points. The Kaled Mutants now had a substantial lead on their prehistoric opponents.


Firing upon the Dalek approaching Objective Six, the Sea Devil Ancients would have felled their opponent if it hadn't played the Adventure Card "Escape Plan" in order "to ignore the Extermination result on one of your characters on a Damage roll." But that meant nothing could save the northernmost Dalek from being cut down by a "scientifically-advanced" Heat Ray, not even the expenditure of a Fate Token to force a re-roll on the damage table.

THE SEA DEVILS TRY TO ENGAGE THE DALEKS AS MORE REINFORCEMENTS ARRIVE

With so much slaughter taking place the Daleks seemed to have a commanding position on the battlefield, so remained stationary in order to maximise their firepower. As the (second) group of Sea Devil reinforcements swam towards the shore, the rest of the "humanoid turtles" bravely marched inland, seeking shelter where they could find it. Unfortunately, there was never going to be enough of it, and within moments the two remaining Sea Devils making up the faction's initial reinforcements were dead, as would have been the sole surviving Ancient if not for the cost of a Fate Token. A disruptor blast from a drone near Objective Three also successfully caught the Sea Devil Overlord, and momentarily shocked the Aquatic Silurians' leader to the ground.


Facing defeat the Sea Devils 'exhausted' the Adventure Card "Terror From The Deep" so as to allow their freshly arrived three sonically summoned warriors to disappear beneath the ocean's waves and re-emerge in the Large Pool directly behind the Dalek Leader's position. All three Sea Devils fired at the black Dalek, but despite a number of hits and use of Fate Tokens the best result the amphibious Earth reptiles could achieve was to shock the Kaled mutant onto its side.

THE SEA DEVILS TAKE THE DALEKS BY SURPRISE AND LAUNCH A MASSIVE COUNTER-ATTACK

Desperate to fell the deadly pepperpots, the Sea Devils discarded the Adventure Card "Now We Are The Hunters" allowing them to charge five inches into melee as opposed to their usual two inches. Even across the debilitating sand, this gave the three westernmost Sea Devils distance enough to close with the Dalek Leader and one of his minions, and a tense series of close combat engagements ensued. Incredibly however, despite being shocked the black Dalek still managed to fend off its attackers, whilst the plesiosaur-like warriors failed to damage the drone either.

THE SEA DEVILS RETREAT AS THE DALEKS GLOAT OVER A RESOUNDING VICTORY

Eager to escape the Dalek disruptors, the Sea Devil reinforcements retreated back into the gloomy waters of the Large Pool, and exhausted "Terror From The Deep" again in order to reappear further away in the Small Pool. Sadly, the move wasn't enough to save two of the Sea Devils, as the Daleks swung their weapons upon their position and fired. Whilst the sole surviving Ancient was also gunned down leaving Objective Six totally unprotected. Despite there still being time left for a final turn, the Sea Devil Overlord decided to live to fight another day, and signalled for his remaining people to retreat. The Daleks had won the day...
