Real-World News ripe for Pulp Hero exploitation

Recommended Posts

 

I see my take on this being something more in the Strange Tales/Weird Fiction pulp style. The real story has all sorts of interesting lead-ins. A base called "Treasure Hunter." A polar bear (according to Wikipedia, the polar bears on Alexandra Land are genetically distinct from other polar bears). Trichinosis. A captain going mad and having to be restrained for his journey back to the Fatherland. Google Maps shows an interesting undersea topography nearby. Wikipedia lists a peak called Kupol Lunny (Dome of the Moon) as a prime geographical feature. The Soviets set up a northern outpost there and a plane crashed in 1996 while landing on the airstrip.

 

There is just a lot of potential for pulp or even backstory to a Dark Champions game. I am way intrigued. Murky, unrealized story bits are floating around the ol' noggin. If I can coalesce them into something substantial, this might be a neat adventure idea.
