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

...let's get outta here!

Murph's thoughts on the "marching order" are roughly laid out in that post but, for clarifiaction, here are my thoughts (anyone else can feel free to work this in to their own posts... or argue with Murph about it if you choose):

Murph takes point with the shotgun, Amber, Alaster and Jake, keeping Emily 'surrounded'/'protected', make up the core, and Mac brings up the rear with his 357. Everybody stays tight... don't wanna give those things a chance to infiltrate and split the ranks, right?

We head east on Cornelia, making for the Save Rite and Ace Hardware (medicine and other potentially useful supplies there)... how we get to Wrigley after that can be haggled over when/if we make it that far...

Topic: Zombies in Chicago
Subject: Not sure about "sensible" but...

Murph stood between the top of the basement steps and the bar, shotgun trained on the broken door and windows at the front of what was once OBrians Pub, and waited for the others. They came up one by one for the most part first, squinting against the light, hammer at the ready, and looking pretty rough from the drinking, Alaster trudged into the remains of the bar then Jake with a couple of makeshift molotovs clutched in his hands... Amber, helping the ailing Emily (who looked even worse in the daylight than she had in the gloom of the basement) along, came next and, then, with a big .357 in one hand, the leather, denim, and flannel clad bounty-hunter whose name Murph couldnt remember. Murph watched as Amber got Emily settled and then padded towards him.

She glanced at the small mountain of things he had already gathered on the bar then looked at him. My purse is in the back office it should hold most of that if you want to come back with me, we could get loaded up. She said and gave him a long look that seemed to ask him to come back for more than just her purse, she needed a moment to talk to him.

Yeah, he nodded, glancing towards the office after sweeping the rag-tag group of survivors and the unsecured entryway with a wary eye, sure Cmon

He went down the narrow hall ahead of her, nudged to door open with a toe and lead the way into the office with the barrel of the shotgun he didnt enter or let her do so until he was sure one of those things wasnt waiting for them inside and let out a small sigh of relief when there wasnt. Once inside, Murph kept watch while Amber found her bag.

A little girly but she shrugged as she began to dump the contents onto Pattys desk.

Never been one to worry about being fashion forward, he chuckled dryly, his eyes flicking from the conglomeration of stuff that spilled from the purple bag, to the office door, and back to Amber. Perched on the edge of the desk, Murph pulled the pack of Pall Malls from his pocket, looked at how many smokes were left inside, and decided that he really didnt want one right now. He returned the pack to his pocket as Amber handed the now empty bag over to him and watched as she fidgeted with one of the little plastic army men that had been dumped out of the thing. Thanks, he nodded faintly, his eyes moving from the plastic soldier, to the womans eyes, and then to the spilled contents of the bag as he set the bag on the desk. He returned the socks, wet wipes, hair ties, and crayons (all things he figured might come in handy) to the bags interior before he took the box of shells from his pocket and added it to the bounty.

Look Im sorry about the phone and ehhh she shook her head and sighed a bit. Im just scared. No terrified. So I wanted to apologize, and say thank you as well.

Murph, trying not to watch her chewing on her lip or to linger too long in her eyes as Amber looked at him, shrugged and waved a hand in a gesture that said, dont worry about it

Thanks for talking some sense into me, she continued anyway, and everyone else.

I dunno how sensible its gonna turn out to be, he thought, Havent done much but get us out of the basement where were more likely to get torn apart as opposed to starving His mouth opened to say so but she waved him down.

Dont. Just take it and you dont have to say anything. I know that this is the right thing. And I dont know what you have planned, if anything. But it doesnt matter that I want to find Joshua more than anything in the world right now or anyone elses loved ones they want to find, or wherever they might want to head to for our next hole up we have to get some medicine for Emily. Shes coughing up blood. Amber looked at him with genuine concern for the girl. Shes playing it off some, but that has to be our priority. I wont have her death on my conscience. Im trusting that Phillip and Connie have Joshua safe and will until we can get to them. So there is my opinion penicillin and then she shrugged and brushed a lock of her dark hair from her face.

They should be waiting for us and we should get moving.

Yeah, Murph nodded, blinking and sliding off the desk, I guess so.

She stuffed her cell phone and one of those green plastic army men into a pocket on the purse, offered up an almost embarrassed smile, and then hurried out of the room.

He waited until she had disappeared through the door before scooping up the remainder of the army men and studied them in the palm of his hand for a moment. Funny how they always make the grunts, he thought, eyeballing two of the little figures (one prone and the other kneeling) with M-16s, and never the guys that fix the crap they break Funny how nine days and a handful of plastic can bring back the tour in Iraq the way I missed Jenny and Mickey the way it hurt when the rocket attack took my buddies and the way it hurt more when I got the letter from Jenny telling me she was taking off with Bob Somers and going to make a life in Pittsburgh her and Mickey with Bob (SOB was supposed to be my friend) in Pittsburgh

The thought brought Murphs fingers closing tight around the small squad of plastic troops and his eyes, sprung wide open, flicked toward the door

I wonder if this is happening everywhere?

For a moment, the thought of what was happening here happening everywhere else overwhelmed him to the point where he started to doubt that getting out of that basement was the better option when compared to just staying put and dying down there

I dont know what you have planned, Ambers voice echoed in his mind, if anything

Murph opened his hand, looked again at the army men sprawled across his palm, and made a face that described the line between determination and uncertainty. Id rather die up here, finding help for Emily and getting Amber back to her kid than down in that basement, he reminded himself as he tried to scour the uncertainty from his mind. With that, he stuffed the remainder of the little plastic guys into the purse with their partner, took up the bag, and followed Ambers tracks back out into the barroom.

All right, people, he said, his hazel eyes skimming from face to face as he emerged from the hallway, My thoughts are we make for Wrigley. There should be food and water enough there to hold us out for a little while and we should be able to carve ourselves a little piece of it thats easy enough to defend until we find out what the hells going on and what our best options are for getting ourselves safe. On our way were going to see what we can do about getting ourselves supplied in case we have to dig in for the long haul, so we may not be taking a direct route. He trudged towards the door, peered outside again, and then turned back to regard the others again. Well need medical supplies, he said, his gaze fixing on Emily for an instant, any bottled water and food we can dig up, and maybe some more weapons if we can find any, so, as we go, I want everyones eyes peeled for police cars, ambulances, anything that might cough up anything we can use, okay?

Murphs eyes found Mac and his .357 then; That thing loaded?

((Assuming a positive response))

He nodded at the reply. You bring up the rear then, Murph said, and Ill take point. We keep the rest of them between us and us between them and whatever the hell comes at us, right?

The rest of you, theres a bat and a crowbar there, he pointed with the shotgun to where hed set those items down, and theres plenty of other stuff here thatll serve in a pinch. Get yourself armed and were outta here

Admittedly, Murph's probably looked at Amber more than once and went "yummy"... and likely even had some "thoughts" here and there... but in the situation we're in right now, romance is a little far down the list of priorities... ...ya never know, though, right?

Subject: Maps are good...

...calls to mind other options for our group, as well.

It was mentioned in an earlier post that making for the lake was a possibility, right? I imagine if we could find a decent sized boat and figure out how to operate it safely, we could manage a defensible base of operations afloat... Just came to mind after looking at the map and the stores/facilities available along the different routes... Wrigley is closer but getting to a pharmacy and such along the way will make for a longer trip... the lake is farther away but there are more supply stops along a more direct route... *shrug* ... ATM, Murph's still thinking Wrigley but I figured I'd share my thoughts on this and let the rest of you figure out how your characters might think... especially you locals.

Subject: ...

Not sure about everybody having a vehicle... Chicago is a big, busy, bustling place and a lot of people take the El (elevated train/subway) or other modes of public transport to get around (cuz it's usually quicker and cheaper - parking costs a fortune in Chicago!!!).

Gotta go with the GMs ruling on that, of course...

For the record, I don't imagine Murph's vehicle being much of anything... probably some rattle trap clunker of a compact truck or some such (mechanics usually drive the worst cars on the lot if you've ever noticed) and likely wouldn't fit all of our group comfortably inside... *shrug*

C'mon... you know everybody wants to walk to Wrigley, anyway.

Topic: Zombies in Chicago Q&A
Subject: Leave no man behind, remember? ;)

Yup... agreed, hitting stores along the way isn't a bad idea... I'm certain that there's a drug store on the route between O'Brian's and Wrigley but unsure of what else there might be... I'm hoping for a dept store, maybe a sporting goods or outdoor outfitter of some sort (hopefully can find some good supplies in places like that... if we don't get munched whilst we're looting).

And speaking of cars... I think I mentioned in Murph's 'concept' that he had an old beater of a vehicle parked outside with a toolbox in it... any ruling on what kind of shape that'd be in (torn to crap... still drivable?) if he was to check?

Subject: *swallows heart*

Murph came through the door low and with the crowbar at the ready to either strike or defend, whichever might be necessary. Surprisingly enough, there was no need for either; the place was as empty and still as church on Monday. Nothing moved and there were no signs of life in the bar other than those of lives that were already gone The dark smears of blood on the floor and the smell of death evoked memories of the carnage that was left from an insurgent RPG attack on their post near Tikrit

Breathe, Sergeant Keep your focus Look around This is different.

Murph realized he was still holding his breath, then, and that the muscles in his arms were starting to ache from the tension in the muscles that still kept the makeshift weapon ready for action. He tore his gaze from the bloodstains, letting his muscles relax and blowing a relieved breath passed pursed lips as he scanned the place. This is different, he mumbled to himself as his eyes swept the barroom and realized that, despite the broken doors, windows, and furniture, the place was in relatively decent shape, no real structural damage, nothing missing except the people He fought off the urge to shudder. Friggin creepy.

Ah, he said a little louder as his gaze fell on the shotgun near the bar, God bless you, Patty OBrian. His booted feet crunched across broken glass and debris as Murph made his way over to retrieve and inspect the weapon. It looked to be in good shape and had nearly a full load of shells. Even better, as the mechanic continued on his sweep and clear, he found Pattys peacekeeper in its place under the bar along with a near-full box of .00 shells for the 10-gauge. He laid the crowbar and the bat on the bar, jacked a fresh round into the shotguns chamber and loaded the tube with a shell from the box before relegating the remainder to his pockets.

He scanned the place, again, from his vantage point behind the bar as he fished a Red Bull from the cooler and chugged it down. Ack, he grimaced, tossing the can aside and taking the bat and crowbar from the countertop in his free hand, That stuffs god-awful. Murph rounded the bar again, wondering if hed have been better off to drink the weeks old coffee sludge that still clung to the pot behind the bar, and leaned the bat and crowbar against the wall near the basement door before moving for the front door and cautiously taking a peek at the outside world. When he did, that creepy feeling surged over him again and he wondered if Chi-town had ever been this still

It took the man another moment to blink away his awe at how dead (for serious lack of a better term) the streets were and, when he did, his stomach grumbled in protest at the huge dose of caffeine and sugar that had just been dumped into it. Murph backed away from the doorway and, when his back hit the opposing wall and the crowbar, jostled by his heel, clanged to the floor, finally managed to glance back over his shoulder and peer down into the dimness of the basement. Were clear up here, he called, Dunno how long thatll last, so lets get a move on folks!

Topic: Zombies in Chicago Q&A
Subject: Okay, gang... here's some thoughts...

We've got some decent weapons, now, and an apparent lull in the zombie crush... If you've ever watched a zombie flick or played a survival horror game, though, you know that's not gonna last long...

Anyway, now that we're out of the basement, we need to figure out what to do next because, if we sit here too long we're meat for sure, so Murph's initial thoughts are to head towards Wrigley Field because a) it's close (a couple of blocks), b) it's a relatively large venue and, by nature, should have food, water, highly defensible areas (locker rooms, etc), and possibly some limited medical facilities and the like, and c) could we be lucky enough that it has some sort of backup power system (emergency generators or the like)... If nothing else, it seems (in Murph's mind anyway) that it'd be a safer and more sustainable place to 'hole up' and formulate a better plan.

Thoughts, opinions, other suggestions?
