Tina stretched her arms and picked up a pair of gallon containers filled with water. "These are the last two for upstairs. There's at least a weeks worth of food and water for each of us up there."
"The truck is fixed up and ready to go." Jack added as he lifted his beer in a toast. "This place seems safe enough and we're ready to go if we need to. Who could ask for more?"
"Tomorrow we'll head into Somerset. There's a gas station and junkyard on the edge of town we can check out as we head into town. Maybe we can find more fuel." Dawn said and grabbed her pack, heading for the stairs.
"We'll walk to town, it will be more quiet and we won't use any gas for the truck." Tina suggested. "Once we have an idea of what's happening there, we can drive in if we need to."
Dawn looked at Tina, sighing. "Fine we'll walk. It's not like I'm going to take the truck and just drive off."
Jack shook his head. "Everyone just calm down. We'll take a walk into town and see what we can see."
|Walking into town|
As part of the campaign a couple of special rules are in effect:
1. Very tight ammo rules
2. Scarce looting
3. Zombie specials: as the team explores the town there is a chance for 'special' zombies to appear in any group from a PEF and at the start of the scenario. These are zombies that may have something useful, a weapon, body armor, keys, etc. I have a chart to roll on for what each special zed may have. For example, to start there is an undead soldier zombie at the gas station -
|Everyone is ready to go!|
|Tina and Jack kill the closest zombies|
|Here they come!|
"I don't think that's all of them." Tina said pointing at the truck.
"Aww, what is it? Don't tell me!" Jack said, taking aim with his SMG as more zombies shambled from the wreck.
|Three more zombies appear|
"You okay?" Dawn asked.
"We're just trying to get away from the dead." A lean young woman with a spear offered. "Where are you headed?"
"We're checking out town, then heading back to our fortified farmhouse." Dawn replied. "We'd be happy to help you out."
They paused for a moment and looked and nodded at each other. "We'd love to join you guys. I'm Brenda, this is Joyce and Eric."
The survivors win initiative for the turn, and everyone fires on the undead. Dawn moves forward, just in case any survive to charge the team.
|Lots of shooting|
|Dawn fights in melee|
|More zombies arrive|
|PEF moves into contact|
|Zombies climb over the truck|
|Zombies close in on the survivors|
|Tina wins, the zeds get closer|
|Shooting works pretty well...|
|...until four more zombies show up|
|The team moves forward|
|And the zombies close in|
|This could be a problem.|
"I guess we'll have to go around." Jack said calmly.
|That's going to tough to get past|
|It could be worse...|
