Topic: Zombies in Chicago Q&A
Subject: have a map


Here, guys - I have made you a map with local pharmacies, the closest grocery store, Wrigley field, and a 7-eleven marked on it. There are tons of bars and souvenier stores (Cub's jersey's and tees aplenty) on Clark and Addison by Wrigley.

You won't get this level of detail all the time, but the party members who live locally would know where all of these are.

Pharmacies lie about four blocks from here, one east, one south. Wrigley is about two blocks north. There are no major stores nearby.

Assume that while yes, she is sick, she can and does both get up and move. She doesn't need to be in combat right now... may need a few more breaks than the rest of you, but she's not incapacitated.

Feel free to write her into the next scene; she can backpost if she wants to cover the basement.

Edit: Merideth added to her Q&A post. Here ya go:

You may be able to locate some stale pretzels and a few peanuts. Thre are no significant food supples here.

You wanna fashion a one-use dagger (if you stab with it, count on it breaking)? Be my guest. Shouldn't be overly hard to do.

Not sure what size purses Emily and/or Amber might be carrying, but I don't see any large bags here (unless you can see something that reasonably would be here that I'm missing).

Bar stool legs would make for more formidible weapons than pool cues, and are probably easier on the hands than two by fours.

No usable food or water up here.

October 26, 2014
O'Brian's Pub - 11:45 AM

With the decision made, Tommy Murphy used his crowbar to pull back the makeshift barricade that had not only kept out any intrusion, but was now indirectly contributing to the certain death of the basement surviviors. With a firm grip on the heavy tool, he yanked the door open, prepared for the worst.

All things considered, the pub itself was in better shape than Murph had figured it might be. Yes, there were broken windows, and yes, the front door hung off of its hinges. Much of the furniture was overturned, and there was a fair amount of broken glass, but by and large, the damage was cosmetic.

A huge, brownish-red stain marred the wooden floor; Murph tried to not dwell too heavily on whose blood that might be. Of Patrick O'Brian, there was no sign.

Quickly, the mechanic set about his intended task to search for weapons - and the quest was a success. O'Brian's Browning BPS - a ten guage, pump action shotgun - lay on the floor near the bar. A quick examination revealed that the shell in the chamber had been discharged, but that four more remained in the weapon. Searching behind the bar was similarly fruitful - not only did Murph locate the Louisville Slugger bat that the owner kept here for intimidation purposes, but also a nearly full box of shutgun shells for the Browning. All told, there were twenty-two rounds of double aught shot; more than enough to handle any immediate threat.

A glance out of the window reveals streets empty of any traffic, vehicle or foot. As a matter of fact, there are no signs of life whatsoever.

Tiamat's character has been in the basement the entire time. Since nothing has happened yet, there's just no sense in working up some "survivors" meet angle right now. Easier to just have you all together.

Guys, I hate to be a drag, but please note that I'm a teensy bit concerned at where we went over the past few posts.

Please remember our posting requirements for the game: 2-3 short paragraphs per post. You don't have to write a novella like Eol or Merideth, but you do need to do more than one sentence or two.

I do not care for "chat like" games, which is what this one is develving into. Have your character say their piece, describe what they are thinking, etc. If there's not enough to hit 2-3 paragraphs, either work on your post some more, or wait. If you are wanting to RP a conversation with another character, get in touch with that player (via chat, PM, email, whatever) and figure out who's writing what.

Do not use the forum to post 1-2 sentences back and forth. I don't want to see ten new posts in an evening, with nine of them being from two players talking back and forth.

Thanks!

As of right now, there is not set end point. A LOT of this game is totally up to you guys. Do you want to look for food first? Medicine?

Will you try to drive out of the city? Find a boat? Use the train tracks? Find an airplane?

How much of an effort will those of you with family members make to find those family (provided that they are even alive)?

Are you trying to leave the city at all, or will you try to develop some sort of stronghold?

I dunno. Up to you guys.

As the GM, I will handle all attack, damage, skill, saving throw, etc. rolls. You post your character's intentions, and I'll handle the mechanics of it.

I don't mind the hammer and nails, though it seems odd to have worn a tool belt to a bar. Perhaps your guy was there to fix something? That would work. As far it goes as a weapon, I don't see a hammer being any better than an improvised club (two by four, etc), so I have no issue. Had you pulled out an SMG, we'd have had a problem.

I'm not going to give away much yet - you'll have to learn how things work as we play - but I will state that, at any time, you may attempt a headshot in combat. A successful headshot (at least, one with a firearm) will result in an insta-kill of any zombie. A normal hit, on the other hand, will have to result in enough overall damage to take them down. However, do note that headshots are significantly harder to achieve than are regular hits in combat... something to keep in mind.

Topic: Zombies in Chicago Q&A
Subject: action points


I am using the optional "action points" rules for D20 modern.

Basically, You each have eleven points that you can spend to help yourself in some manner. You will gain more (6 or so) if you live to see another character level.

Here are the uses:

Once per round, you can choose to use a point, and it will add 1d6 to any d20 roll (attack roll, skill check, etc).

Certain abilities that you may have require the use of an action point to activate them (I will let you know if this applies to you).

You may use them to emulate a feat that you do not currently have (say, blind fighting). This lasts for one round.

You may grant yourself one extra attack in a given round.

You may drastically boost your defense for one round using a point.


Let me know if you have questions.

The nearest chain drugstore is a Walgreens at the corner of Sheffield and Belmont - half a block west, then about four blocks south (this takes you away from Wrigley, if you care).

Alternately, it's about the same distance to head due east; there's a Save Rite just south on Boradway after it intersects with your current street (Cornelia). There's another Walgreens about two blocks northwest there on Broadway, as well.

If you go south, you will be on a road lined with businesses (Sheffield), flanked with residenial neighborhoods. If you go east, it's more overall residential/office, but it does put you closer to Lakeshore Drive and the harbor, if that interests you.

I have dropped a note to sunow - please note that there are no families present here at O'Brian's... just the survivors for our game.

Your bar decor is pretty accurate. Bar and bar stools as you have described. Pool table, darts, typical bar games.

So, yes, there are likely makeshift weapons available.

Subject: weapons?


There is a crowbar in the cellar that Patty used to open crates. There are probably a couple of lengths of two by four here that could be used as makeshift clubs, if need be.

Anyone that frequented O'Brians is probably aware that Patty kept a Louisville Slugger under the bar along with his shotgun. It may well still be there.
