You were planning on paying for a local mercenary band and a vehicle to leave this city and travel to one of the neighboring cities across the wastes. Sadly that is not a option as you were placed under house arrest, with no reason given to you.

You then decided the less civil approach and studied up on drones, planning on contacting the mercenaries and rigging public service drones to cause a distraction while you and the band left the city.

That never happened either as police raided your home, and took you here. For no adaquetly explained reason either, you never even got past planning with your plan B.

So now you are stuck in this large and relatively empty cell.

Hm..from what I can see, the subject's mouth has rotted away, cause unknown. It's lower limbs are missing, possible from self afflicted cannibalism, or possibly was already missing them. It's left arm is rather abnormal, compared to the rest of it, possibly due to...repeated strenuous activity out of boredom and stress. Possibly male, due to previous hypothesis. Well, those are my guesses anyway, you're the one with the PhD, right? There seems to be a journal of some sort near him. There's also what appears to be some newspapers near your right.

"Doooon't touuuch it..." a wheezy voice comes from the body. Shit he's not dead! You get a better look at his abnormal left arm. It's mutated. Shit he's a infected, they tossed me in here with a infected!

We back away slowly. He continues to ask us to leave it alone, pour soul, still thinks he's a regular person not prolonged to a painful death, or worse, the days as a being that only wishes to rip our guts out.

We inspect the journal, a few details about his days here. Mostly that he got food when the guards opened the door, water was supplied from a dripping tap, and how he spent the time writing this journal or talking to any other inmate that got in here.

Ah there we go! The journal mentions about a stash of sorts in the hatch in the room! Something for emergencies!

Typically I would argue whether or not if he's even still self aware at this point. But you guys raise a good point. I shouldn't be doing this. Invasion of someone's privacy is what got us locked away.

So, we return the journal, the Infected seems to calm down.

I didn't think to much about it. Not very scientific of me to not at least hypothesize. Okay, let's give it a shot.

He was infected but thrown in, as his journals couldn't have been written in clear print if he was mutated and rotting then. So he must have mutated during his time here, and during some of the more painful mutations, asked the guards to remove his legs.

From there he deteriorated.

We open the hatch. Well... that's depressing.

Normally a gun would be a good thing. This isn't the sign of a good thing. This is a standard suicide pistol, given to groups of 6 or infected in case life gets to be too much for them. They have the option of ending it and leaving. The 3ND.

You have to place it against someone, at least some point on their head. The box probably holds at least one other magazine of 6. 3 scratches on the the ND pistol... 3 deaths. 3 shots.

You have a very good point there. I'm not one of the City Watch or the City Guards.

No. 556741 ID: 5fd94e

Quick question, does the gun just use small pellets to insure close range use only? If so you may be able to pry open the socket and disconnect some wires and depending on bullet material and wattage be able to melt the pellets into a single slug, which might expand the range to at least a few feet.

After the guard leaves mind you.
No. 556859 ID: 379075

Striking a prison guard who probably has backup right behind him. They're also part of a prison system that doesn't care about sanitary conditions and isn't above severe brutality. Accordingly TRYING to kick the guard's ass is not a great plan.

Political prisoner. Apparently I was doing something that would have upset the Cabinet... No doubt they were waiting for me to be there when the Infected died so they could blame me and get me killed and make it seem like circumstance.

Yeah that's the idea I'm getting, get framed, get tossed, let me get ripped limb by limb because of the guys they got in there.
No. 556952 ID: 74c4ad

Right. So... what are options for getting out of here alive, then? Going along with what they have planned will get you killed slowly, and trying anything with those two guards at your back will get you killed fast.

Flour or powdered sugar should be good for making either incendiaries, explosives or smoke-bombs. Anything we can purify powdered carbohydrates from is a good start on something that burns nicely, but I don't know what our local food supply is like.

Convincing the other blocks to riot seems like an excellent idea but we need the supplies and communications to try that.

"We can make some Molotovs and Smokebombs to deal with the gunners, with tables as makeshift shields, and for those on the ground below, rags around the feet to negate electric shock,"

"I knew there was something different about you Mr. Greenfield," "Say, don't the guards care about what we are saying?" "Care? Why would they care?" "The Guards must be crazy. We've been talking about a breakout in the open, where they can easily hear,"

T laughs a bit, it sounds a bit strained. "Cabron, this is my last chance to escape, I've been here 11 years. Over 8 I have seen 25 different escape attempts, been in 11."

I attempt to keep our focus on the map. "So... what about the supplies?" "they are here, I'll get my informant to let the other Cellblocks know," "Well that was fast,"

"Cabron we have had these supplies for a long time. Hell every-time it's become routine. The Guards await breakout attempts, they just give us the food supplies. Something about "Dying in a blaze of glory" or "Entertain me criminal scum," I swear there is something wrong with them,"

We remain silent.

"I've known people. I've seen them die. Gunned down like common mutants. Did you think I started out blind in my left eye, that I got this scar from dirty work on the street? I was a low level thug in a gang. In here on my 6th try, a guard got a little too excited and brought a knife to my face!"


"So Cabron. Are you sure you want to do this?"

I want to get out of this city. "We are leaving,"

"Okay then Cabron, once we break out of the jail, where do we go next?
No. 560037 ID: 379075

"I'm better than most for surviving an anomaly, but I get the feeling that leaving the city is a bad idea without a good plan and good supplies to survive that. Do we have enough people and enough friends on the outside to either convince the cabinet to leave us alone or make a move for it?"
No. 560099 ID: 6aee1d

Contact a mercenary group, get a vehicle and get the fuck out of the city.
It's simple and leaves room for improvisation.
No. 560110 ID: 4a75fa

...the guards are expecting a violent breakout?

That tells me maybe we should shift gears. Is there anyway we can use the resources we've been left in an unexpected way? Don't give them the fight they want, or expect.

"Well Cabron. No. At most if we find some underground location to hole ourselves in we should be relatively fine, I can make contact over radio with the gang," Well that soun- wait... "Aren't you coming with me?"

T laughs, "Sorry Greenfield, but the wastes just ain't for me. Got any ideas where we can hold up?"

Hm... The Metros! We can escape into the Metros, I can get out through the city via the old lines, and you guys can take a station to make a new base. "Sounds good Cabron,"

"Also we should shift gears, the guards are expecting a breakout? Let's give them one they won't typically expect," "What do you suggest?"

...what? But we've barely started planning. We haven't figured out what drones or stuff we can build from the resources we have, or how to best apply those resources. We've just, in general, sort of sketched out targets of interest. Against an enemy who's reader and waiting, (eager, apparently), for us to attack.

This is prison, for crying out loud. If there's one thing we're not short on, it's time. Take the time to plan this right, not to rush into a bloodbath.

Excellent point! That's why we need a plan!

"T! We can't go rushing in just yet, we need a complete compiled list of our resources!" "What do you mean Cabron," "We have no real plan, we need to allocate our resources. Do we have enough? Can we get our hands on drones? Can we get Medicine? How are we going to do this? Are we just going to run in protecting ourselves with tables? Are we going to throw molotovs? We don't have any clear idea, We need a plan,"

T's face saddens a bit.

"You're right Greenfield. We don't have a concise plan. So I say it's time we lay out what we got and go from there."
Good idea. I'll make a list.

>Escape Supplies So Far:
-3 small cases of 12 bottles of Vodka.
-1 pile of 100 dirt rags
-2 barrels filled with 25 broken nightsticks.
-1 full magazine of 6 3ND rounds complete with primer and powder
-2 bags of flower

And that's just the stuff here. "Say T, can we get the tables from the Cafeteria?" "Yeah Cabron, why?" "Metal or Wood," "Metal... How long have you been here?" Excellent! Metal tables, now they won't fully stop bullets but they should buy some temporary protection!

Okay I got a plan down.
>3 Teams.
>Team A takes the food supplies and while the guards are distracted with the raid they use makeshift bombs from the flower and 3ND rounds to blow open the front doors, and they head for the Metro. Biggest and strongest members take this role.
>Team B takes the high road and attacks the catwalks to head for the armory, using the Tables as makeshift shields and push their way forward.
>Team C takes the lower route with rags around their feet tossing molotovs at the gunners nests.

It's not a perfect plan, has holes in it. This is where you guys... voices... come in. Any of you have any alternatives?
No. 560372 ID: 379075

I remember a story of a particularly embarrassing prison break: There was a prison baking event, and the prisoners fed the guards chocolate chip cookies made with chocolate laxatives. While a substantial chunk of the staff was racing for the washrooms or trying to deal with their business in the washrooms and the mess a very large fraction of the prison population just walked out of the prison.

Now I'm not suggesting that it's likely the guards will eat special brownies that we bake for them, but surely there is something we can do to distract, demoralize or impair the staff before we even start our distractionary prison riot?
What do the guards eat, where do they go, and is there any possibility of sabotaging their equipment, water supply, or food before the event?

Distract or otherwise incapacitate the... Oh my god! "T I got something!"

"What is it Cabron?" "The Radio sets! Each Watch member has a radio headset with their own frequency in their helmet!" "Oh my god Cabron... How are we going to do that?"

"We grab a repair drone. Program it to go to the radio station-" "-And then we have it alter the controls to send out feedback noise to incapacitate the guards while we run out and grab the supplies! Brilliant Cabron!"

Is it a combination lock? Try the most simplest of combinations on it before you try to force it, like 1111 or 1234. You could also tell someone else to shoot the lock off if it comes down to it, maybe someone who looks like a gun nut.

As for weapons:

What, you can't just science the lock off? ...or check if the combination is written on the backside?

Actually, if those are the cheap locks we had when I was a schoolkid, you don't need to know the combination. Just twist right left right reversing each direction when you start to feel resistance, and bam, open.

This weapon config works.
