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.

Roger likes to pretend that I'm the one with the reputation as a player killer, but he's the one that causes us all to drop into the fetal position in terror. We just KNOW that when the bad stuff does come, it will be so much worse...

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.

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.

Basement of O'Brian's Pub - 11:30 AM

Ten horrifying days had passed since the first riots began. At first, the news reports called them just that - riots. Soon, however, an explosion of homemade videos (shot mostly on camcorders and cell phones) were posted on the internet, revealing the truth - something was truly wrong with people. Videos depicted inhuman, savage attackes on one another, often using nothing but hands and teeth. More disturbing still, some scenes appeared to reveal clearly dead bodies rising up to join the violent hordes.

Experts sat in and theorized about the cause, and tried to decipher what the actual events meant. The Illinois governor called in the national guard and instituted martial law.

None of it mattered. Within twenty-four hours, none of the television stations were broadcasting. Cellular reception became spotty, then nonexistent. The police never returned.

Then, the hordes came in earnest, bashing against doors and windows, forcing the occupants of O'Brian's down into the basement below, where the door was barricaded against their violence and otherwordly screams. Patrick O'Brian himself was killed on the sixth day as he attempted to retrieve supplies from upstairs; his own screams echoed for a horribly long time.

The survivors have had access to plenty of alcohol to dull the events of the past ten days, but the food supply is now all but exhaused, and both the indoor plumbing and electicity have ceased to function. Without food and water, everyone will soon perish, regardless of the horror in the streets.

And so, the occupants of O'Brian's must execute some sort of plan if they are to survive the zombie apocalypse.

Character itself works fine - though the background either (a) needs an edit at the end or (b) you won't be starting the game with the group... they've all been in the basement of O'Brian's pub since the start of the zombie apocalypse.

This will be the official Q&A thread for my modern horror game, "Zombies in Chicago".

Please post questions and such here, so that I don't have to look everywhere for them.

The main game thread is up, but please do not post there until I have made one more post, myself (the game does not actually begin until October 26th - my current post is dated October 16th).

O'Brian's Pub (Chicago, Illinois), 5:30 PM

It's the end of the world as we know it...

"...and it is... GOOOONNNNEEEE! The Cubs have clinched the pennant! The Cubs have clinched the pennant! Cubs three, Giants two, on a walkoff home run by Joey Franklin!" The entire bar was engufled in a roar of joy as Len Kasper's exultant voice belted from the various television sets within O'Brian's. "One hundred and six years of frustration is finally over - the Cubs are headed to the World Series after winning the NLCS, four games to two!"

Drinks flowed freely as the patrons of O'Brian's celebrated this truly historic day for the city of Chicago. Grown men wept at the chance to finally see their beloved Cubs return to the fall classic. For a few brief, shining moments, all was right in the world.


*******************************


October 16, 2014
O'Brian's Pub, 6:15 PM

"For God's sake," Patrick O'Brian spat from behind the bar, "you'd think we were naught better than Sox fans."

The television broadcasts of cheering fans and spraying champagne had been replaced by more somber fare - rioting had broken out downtown at first, then spread across the city. Worse still, it appeared that the rioting was far more involved than broken windows, stolen televisions, and the odd overturned car - the news vans and helicopters were relaying disturbing images of people brutally attacking one another in the street. "Death toll in the dozens," came the anchor's voice.

"Turn that crap off, Patty! We're tryin' to be happy here," came a request from one of the patrons.

Good advice, O'Brian mused to himself as he changed the channel.



*******************************

October 16, 2014
O'Brian's Pub, 7:05 PM

"Everybody okay?" the voice came from a uniformed police officer who had stuck his head in the door. "Folks, I want you to listen carefully. The riots are getting worse, and are getting close to this area. I need to ask you to remain calm, and to stay inside here until we get the situation contained. Patty, I'd appreciate it if you'd lock and bar the door - there's been a lot of people hurt, and if it ends up here like it's been elsewhere... well, it could take awhile for us to answer any specific calls. Looks like our hands are gonna be pretty full."

The owner of the bar nodded his head. "Aye, James, I'll do just that. Thanks for the heads up."

Moments after the police officer left the bar, an explosion from somewhere not terribly distant shook the entire room. Wordlessly, Patrick locked and bolted the door.



*******************************

October 16, 2014
O'Brian's Pub, 9:45 PM

...something wicked this way comes.

It had come first as a scratching sound at the door. Soon after, there came a pounding like someone attempting to break in to the bar.

Next came the screams - voices wailing in unspeakable agony, cries of pain and terror. Pops, like those of firecrackers - only everyone inside knew that this was no merriment, but the discharge of small arms fire.

More screams.

A pounding again at the door, this time accompanied by the voice of a woman pleading in terror. "Help! Please help me! Let me in, please, oh God!" A scream of agony, cut short as the door was opened to let her in... too late.

Those that would survive the coming days might all have different tales to tell, but for everyone present that night in Patrick O'Brian's bar, this shared moment would be forever seared into their memories. A bloody, nigh-beheaded corpse lying on the ground at the doorway, while one of them stood over her remains.

Oh, it looked human enough - save the bloodshot eyes with pupils that nearly eclispsed every trace of the white sclera. A huge, bloody wound, as if from an axe, openly wept from the figure's side, though he seemed to give it little notice. Speaking of blood, the mouth, face, and neck were covered in the stuff - and from the looks of it, it belonged to the dead woman on the ground.

It screamed in fury and rushed into the bar, but Patrick's shotgun roared and blew the man back out into the street. Someone screamed, someone else demanded that the police be called, but any fool cold see and hear that the police would not come... not tonight.

Maybe not ever again.

More otherworldly screams filled the streets, and the door was quickly locked and bolted again as the place of drinking and festivities became an impromptu place of prayer.
