Worldwide Phenomena Response. "At exactly 7:04 Pacific time, millions of people worldwide stopped. They stood rigid, staring into space. Then an hour later, they all went into shock. Then an hour after that, they began to change. Then they were no longer human, but a predator. Why? We still do not know, there are theories, but none with solid evidence.

You, and thousands of others, have been chosen for your survival know-how and various skills to guide those unfortunate enough to have been left behind. Your location is sealed tight, and self sufficient and so until under express orders, you WILL NOT LEAVE your station. Good luck, and God Speed."

Thank god you joined right under the wire. Actually maybe curse him. Your task was to guide survivors to military outposts via radio. 2 months. Not one survivor in your entire sector. Well yeah there was some. But they never quite made it to the com stations. What's worse is that 2 outposts have already been overrun. Only 2 still exist. And they are supposed to escort survivors to a safe zone? Please. How can they protect anyone if they can't even protect themselves from those mutants?

Look at that. Dismal. Ugh the Ossificus is really going to town on the poor guy's corpse. You've been looking at shit like this for the last 2 months. But this is actually real tame compared to the mind blowing weirdness you witnessed. That reminds you. You might wanna call in to command, see if you can't get an update on the mutie list.

Two transmissions coming from opposite ends of town. This makes trouble.

"Oh my god! It's one of those smart ones! It's making the big one smarter!"

Scans show that from heat flashes, the one on the south side has 2 outside the building with fire arms, and 3 unarmed inside. Unarmed or they just haven't fired yet. Judging by rate of fire one is a shotgun, the other is some rapid fire gun. Assault rifle or submachine gun.

The North group all have guns, all seem to be either assault rifle or heavy machine guns.

RIght uh...the red ones. The red ones were the launcher types. That yellow one was the ossificus you saw earlier. The green one is the Brain, actually gives the Ossificus coordination. And those grey ones are...well fuck I dunno, the computer can't identify them. That blue one. Ah fuck those are gliders. Dangerous, but odd. Those are nocturnal and its only noon.

Okay on closer inspection the Glider's dead. So at least that's one problem the Trigger Happy;s won't have to worry about.

Well if you can get them to pick up the damn com device you can actually see what they see and try to help coordinate their attack. That's the problem. There's two groups. Going for one at this point will condemn to other to being overrun. Trying to contact both is possible but odds of either one surviving become real slim as orders can get confused.

Group facing the big one and the brain, henceforth group 2. You need to get behind it, and unless you have something clever ready, that means spread out. Maybe you can trick it through a blind doorway or something.

Group henceforth known as one, I show you engaged with a decreasing number of the strain designated Launchers, and three unknown assailants. Please advise on their capabilities, on your time.

Group two, your only clear path is north to the street and go right. Watch out for the Launchers coming in on your left. You are moving toward the sound of gunfire.

okay group 2, more from the west but the are heading south around the building so head straight north then head east along the road then north at the intersection.

A word of warning, group 1 is entering a 'high tension' situation. Similar to Zombiequest on /tg/, there will be a a variety of choices, each with a specific roll need to complete. Should the roll fail, there will be consequences. Sometimes inevitable. This is the first time so there will not be a roll. But in the future choices need to be weighed a little more.

Currently these folks are in Hawthorne. The closest base is in Las Vegas, but given its size it attracts mutants like moths to a flame. The actual evacuation will take place on the roof of the Mandalay, the original point, Trump Towers were decimated after a flock of Gliders overwhelmed it. The 2nd one is of course, the Hoover Dam, which is slightly further, and does mean running through wild land if Las Vegas overrun.

Well their story checks out with the Database.

Victor Titov, Student interning as a pharmacist. Grandfather registered an assault weapon.

Jeffery Jackson, charged with 1 count assault, and 1 arson. Unregistered for a weapon though.

Shane Bale, Sergent. Was attached to VIPs heading towards California, until the helicopter went dark about a week ago.

Janice Beally, High School Teacher, husband registered an Ithaca 37.

Joey Dokgo, College Student, the gun though is something new....didn't know you could do that.

Vegas it is. What's left of the interstate will take you straight there, so watch out for a functional pickup. I don't want you too far from civilization so you have someplace to hole up for the night. Fliers come out at night. How are you doing for food and medical supplies?

Considering what time it is it might be best to have them hole up in one of the buildings for the night. Unless you like watching survivors get eaten by gliding horrors.
"Okay, we got a combined three first aid kits, 28 cans of...um...canned food, about 24 liters of water,350 bullets for the M16, and 500 to share between my AK and Joeys...thing. 25 shotgun shells, and Jackson still has about 800 rounds for his gun, though he'll probably go through em all before we even go a mile.

Gun shops and warehouses are always good places to bunk up when under siege.

Smaller buildings are easier to defend, so go to that one. If it's one of the above two, then hey; bonus.

Haha so cliché.
No. 259983 ID: 2b7df1

SmallEST building looks very small. A simple storefront, probably lacks sufficient space and ammenities to support eight people for the night. I am hoping that is not the one we want.

Gun stores have barred windows and reinforced doors. As long as you can get IN, they are great places to hold up for defence.

Oh by the way, that is not a liquor store, that is a molotov coctail store. Proceed.

No. 260834 ID: 45be60

Okay, don't worry about the guns just yet. Make sure the store is secure, you got all night to scavenge the wears. Jackson and Titov, head to the liquor store. Anything under 80 proof is rubbish for burning, which means everclear is barely functional. Rule of thumb: if you've seen a commercial for it, it ain't strong enough. And see if you can't find some soda or pretzels while you're there, you'll be glad for the calories later.

Joey, I want you watching the street and ready to go in case something needs shot. Everyone else, check out the gun store. Check every closet, cabinet, and cupboard. If it's got a drop ceiling, take a peek up there too. No surprises tonight.

And this should go without saying, but everybody keep the noise down as much as you can.
