Topic: Zombies in Chicago
Subject: Bullet time

What was the name of that movie?

Murph stared through the smoke that curled up into the air from the end of the SLP. Saw what was left of the zombie Saw Emily crumpled there

You know, that one with Keanu Reeves he was some hacker or something but not really because the world he lived in was just a dream and people were just these batteries powering these machines

He tried to breathe just one breath but found he couldnt do it

Then he finds out hes like this superhero or something and he can do all this freaky s#!^ like dodge bullets and stuff

He really wanted to turn his eyes away find Amber make sure she was okay see how bad Mac really was give a nod of thanks and good work, kid to Alaster find where Kramer went but it felt like he couldnt move

Anyway they did this really fantastic camera-work/effect stuff in the fight scenes and junk bullet time, I think they called it

Murph tried to breathe again and couldnt realized that he was shaking became vaguely aware of someone saying his name.

The Matrix! Thats it! This s#!^ was just like The F***ing Matrix! The way everything slowed down Dude! Sarge! I thought we were f***ing dead, man! More than once! Toes up, t**s up, f***ing dead!

Murph didnt puke in bullet time; not in Iraq when the attack was finally over and Rodriguez had first gone off on his Matrix trip and not now. No, when Tom Murphy finally managed to suck in a hitching lungful of powder and blood-tinged air, it was answered by a violent wrenching of his gut that buckled the mechanics knees and sent the limited contents of his stomach spewing to the floor of the hardware store at top speed.

At least he could breathe again. That was good. And hed kept himself from crumpling completely to the floor by getting the butt of the shotgun there before his knees did. That was good, too

Now, keep breathin slow your heart down

F***, Murph groaned as his stomach twisted and wrenched his ribs. There was nothing left to come up, so he didnt have to worry about trying not to puke again. He spit, anyway, trying to clear the taste from his mouth and buy himself another second to steady his legs. Then, dragging his freehand across his mouth, he pushed himself up and, blinking away the sting of the tears that he realized had been threatening to spill from his eyes, he managed to finally check on the others.

Report, he managed to choke out, the words warbled by the pounding of his heart, the hitching of his breath, and the ebbing adrenaline that left his face feeling numb and rubbery, howre we doin?

Well, thats about the dumbest friggin thing to come outta your mouth in a while, isnt it? You know how were doin! We just about got our a**es kicked is how were doin!

Murph felt his legs steady up a bit more and he slung the SLP over his shoulder now, rather than leaning on it like a crutch. It didnt matter how strong his legs felt, though none of him had been strong enough to throw that zombie off and keep it from trying to chew his throat out, had it? It had to have been something close to a miracle that had kept that thing from making lunch out of him. His legs were solid but the rest of him quivered a bit when his mind replayed the sound of those gnashing teeth and made him re-feel the vice-like grip Jesus those things are strong how in the hell is that possible? and his gaze found Emily again, still crumpled where the blow from that monster had thrown her. As sore as he was surely going to feel after being tackled and pinned by one of those things, how must she feel after a blow like that?

Macs hacked pretty good be lucky if he can make it to any place safe The Docs sure to be busted up Jakes. gone His gaze flicked from face to face. Al looks okay he did good Wheres Amber? There was a quick flicker of panicked concern in his eyes until they located the barmaid and that glimmer melted from worry to relief. Aside from that far away, fatalistic look in her eyes that he had watched grow throughout the past few hours, she looked good, too. Knowing that, it seemed, was enough to let him get a grip on himself, shove the jitters back down where they belonged, and get his focus back And if you and her are ever gonna go to Chuck E. Cheese, you might wanna do something about Josh she isnt gonna make it much longer, herself, if she doesnt get some hopeYou need to get these people movin, Sarge, and get down to business

Hey, is Murph alright? He heard someone say as he finally got his feet moving to where the group was rallying around Emily. His hand had reached out and sought Amber as he did any part of her shoulder, arm, hand didnt matter Murph would be alright once he touched her for sure just to know she was really still there.

Square it up, Murphy!

Yeah, Alaster answered before Murph found the proper use for his own breathe and replied for himself, He's fine. Miss trooper over here bashed that zombies brains in, no problem. Murph has a nice thank you in store for her.

For you, too, kid, Murph muttered, drawing up to the group at Ambers side, You two definitely saved my a** Thanks.

I want to know who saved us from out there, the carpenter continued, prompting Murph to turn his gaze to the shattered storefront, again, and see if whoever that holy benefactor had been was in sight, That man has style whoever it is.

That man has Jesus and a bazooka is what that man has, Murph smirked, catching sight of Reverend Artillerys form wading across Treasure Islands parking lot.

((OOC: Enough for now, I suppose backposts, etc as needed.))

Topic: Zombies in Chicago Q&A
Subject: ...

"Come on Eol the survivalist thing to do would have been to leave the body. but what would he really do in this situation there has to be some moral decency inside him no matter how small the voice may seem saying dont let the zombies eat his body."

By "he" I'm assuming you mean Murph?

If so, then, in this situation - regardless of how he actually felt about Mac - Murph would absolutely have no qualms about leaving the body where it dropped and move on... First off: There is no where to bury a body anywhere close (we're not going to try to dig a hole in the floor of the hardware store or in the concrete of the sidewalk or the asphalt of the street with much success, I can guarantee that) and carrying that dead weight to a spot where we might have the opportunity to bury it would just slow the troupe down more than it already is and, as such, put the lives of those that still have lives at risk.

Secondly: if the man is dead, he's dead! Anything that made that man who he was left that shell of a body with it's "soul". Sure, Murph might lament the loss and at least close the eyes and/or cover the body up if possible as an act of respect but to actually waste the time burying a body (and in doing so, again, run the risk of getting even more of us killed), just not gonna happen... sorry. That's not to say Murph wouldn't feel bad about having to leave the body behind - I'm sure he's plenty sorry right now, that he didn't kill Jake, himself, when he initially thought about it and plenty sorry that Mac got axed as a result - but he also would realize the true gravity of the situation and wouldn't, for love nor money, risk anyone else by wasting time and keeping the living exposed just to make himself feel better...


Call Murph heartless, I guess, but that's about the way he'd look at it... and, given all of that, and the fact that he's already upset that his "failure to act" when Jake initially got bitten resulted in all of this I can practically guarantee you that he'll have more than just words for Alaster (or anyone else, for that matter) if it so much as hints at becoming an "issue".

Call him a heartless bastard, I guess, but he's kind of had it up to there.

You play it the way you want to, though... I'm cool either way... just sayin'.

Alaster wants to argue, stay behind and bury Mac, that's cool... the rest of us will be getting the heck outta here... good luck digging through all that concrete and asphalt without drawing any undead attention... mind if I take that shotgun and give it to someone else? You'll probably get munched trying to bury poor Ol' Mac, anyway.

Besides, Mac's not dead (yet)... just passed out with an axe in his chest...

Seriously... I'd recommend that Alaster get over his 'argumentative' thing... or it may not be the zombies that end up getting him.

Subject: LOL @ religeous debate

Well, Murph's of Irish descent and lives in Chicago, so it stands to reason that he's likely got "Catholic" on his dogtags... *shrug*... Doubt he's been a "good, practicing catholic" in the past years but, if this works out for the better, I'll bet he'd let Father Teddy hear his confession.

Topic: Zombies in Chicago
Subject: Divine intervention?

Murph allowed himself a somewhat satisfied grin as the rest of the troupe seemed to respond pretty quickly to his prodding. Those that didnt answer out loud had at least shown their faces and indicated that he had been heard and had made himself clear and, best of all, none of them had taken too long about moving towards the front of the store to regroup. He had started to turn his head in order to smile at Amber and offer some kind of hope-filled commentary on the fact that the group had maybe started to work as a group but, before he could do so, his attentions were snatched back by the frail but determined Emily as she almost stomped to a stop before him and, with her hand on her hips, stated with no doubt as to her seriousness; I want a gun.

Wow, Doc, he chuffed, his grin stretching into a full-fledged smile as he blinked up at the tiny girl and then got to his feet, why dont ya tell me whats really on your mind?

Heh. I'd give you mine, Alasters voice drifted into the conversation from an aisle or so away, but I'm not ready to feel safe without it.

Murphs hazel eyes ticked towards the carpenter for only an instant before returning to Emily. To be honest, Em, he told her, I wish all of us had guns, right now

Although, I dont know if that would make me worry less about having to watch everyone elses backs or more about having to watch my own.

but, people in Hell are wishin for ice water, as the saying goes. Unfortunately, theres nothin we can do about that right now but, I promise you, were keeping a look out and, as soon as we can make it happen, were gonna get everybody armed as best we can. Until then, you just stay safe and let us take care of ya, huh?

He had been prepared to add a comment in there to reassure the girl that he wasnt telling her no because he didnt think she could handle a gun but Mac appeared with flashlights and laser levels just then and sidelined the thought.

You might want to tape this on your gun, the bounty hunter suggested handing Murph one of the flashlights, it'll leave your hands free to handle the gun.

Good thinkin, Mac, he nodded, taking the light and relegating it to his packs pocket for the moment, thanks.

He listened, too, as Mac explained his ideas concerning the laser levels and, following that, allowed his focus to slip all the more when the other man leaned in and whispered; Keep an eye on Jake; he's got death in his eyes. I've seen that look before.

Murph offered a faint nod in reply. Yeah, he muttered, his gaze flicking to where Jake, now armed with an axe, was still making his way to the front of the store, Ive been watchin. He doesnt look good.

Thanks, Mac, he clapped the bounty hunter on the shoulder, Lets square this up and roll out, huh?

Murphs attention was drawn to Alaster, then, as the kid said something about cigarettes. Murph smirked, shook his head a little, and flicked a glance in the still straggling Jakes direction before he looked back in the carpenters direction prepared to say something in reply. His mind was split between what words he was going to jab at Alaster with and the fact that Jake really looked like


He caught the swing of the axe in his peripheral vision just as his gaze had framed Alaster and the realization of what was happening hit his body a split second slower that it had hit his mind Macs, too, apparently because, before anyone knew what was happening, Jake had buried his new axe in Macs chest And when it did hit, Murph was too shocked and sickened to make his muscles do what he knew they needed to do. It wasnt until Jake let loose with that first scream that the horror of it all jumpstarted him


Shoulda killed him when he first got bit, Sarge! Deny it all you want if you still can but you knew this was gonna happen! You knew


Jake was already charging for the window by the time Murph got the SLP in his hands again and through it before Murph could draw a bead and fire and Jakes second scream that soulless, inhuman scream froze Murphs blood in his veins long enough that he couldnt pull the trigger. The cries that answered when Jake Not-Jake charged out of sight, though, thawed him with a quickness.

Fall back, he heard himself shout as he found himself remembering how to fire the shotgun and charging towards the now broken window, Move to the back of the store! Emily! Amber! Move those a**es! Drag Mac if you have to, he was vaguely aware of shoving each of them urgently towards the depths of the shore as he passed by the women and lifted the SLP to target the first of the zombies yes, zombies he saw charging the storefront. Alaster! Cover fire!


The zombie exploded, twisted through the air, and splatted to the pavement before the words had even finished bellowing past Murphs lips. The shot had come too quickly and from the wrong direction for it to have been Alaster following orders Too powerful for a ten gauge, too Somebody else?... S#!^ Kramer wheres Kramer?

Steve?... Murph didnt dare tear his gaze from the scene beyond the broken window to see if the new guy had miraculously produced a hand-cannon, let alone where the man might be he was too busy tracking the next inbound screamer and listening for the tell-tale sounds behind him that would let him know when everyone had moved besides, another voice alerted Murph to the fact that there was another shooter out there

"Call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD! And the God that answereth by fire"

What the There was a slight pause in the biblical evocation, then, and in that instant, Murph determined that the devastating rifleshot along with the voice had come from somewhere near the grocery across the street

Could work out well, Sarge you keep em comin this way and let Reverend Artillery out there pick em off as they come a little crossfire bait and switch

Reverend Artillerys voice finished the verse as Murph finished the thought; let him be God!

Amen, Father! Murph shouted just before he targeted the next zombie in the wave descending on the storefront and pulled the trigger Hows that for answereth by fire?

((OOC: Okay theres that Murphs actions are pretty much as posted; keep himself between the window and the others as, hopefully, they at least try to fall back to a more defensible position Target the flesh eaters by proximity and fall back himself, as he can, until theyre too close for the boomstick ))

Okay, so, we've got six zombies left (including Zombie-Jake), right? And a, to this point, unknown/unseen, bible-verse spouting guy with a cannon providing us some cover for the moment... Any way to tell where that booming shot and voice came from?

Also, I'm thinking "fall back" into the store for defensive purposes, gang, toppling shelves and stuff in hopes of slowing the zombie surge and maybe creating a choke point that will give us a better chance at onesies and twosies? Thoughts, input, suggestions, disagreements!

I can really only remember one incident where a "marital spat" had any impact on a game and that was only because whatever tiff they had was bad enough that one of them decided they just weren't coming to the game that night.

She got NPC'd, came back the next week, and everything was copacetic... *shrugs*... guess it just comes down to keeping the two things separate, so to speak... Game time is game time and real life is real life.
