Okay...

...that's twice I've started drooling over this game now!

Great post, Meri... got a little follow up for Murph actions/reactions coming up and then I should be good.

And done...

...that door's coming open whether we're ready or not, I suppose. As stated in post, immediate objectives are to find Patty's gun and whatever other supplies might be available in the bar (bottled water, weapons/ammo, any big purses or packs laying around that can be used to store/carry gear, first aid kits???) and, of course, defend himself (and the others) against any zombies that might be there (but I'm hoping aren't)...

Also, hoping this doesn't need to be said but saying it anyway, nothing said IC translates to OOC, okay? Murph drubbed you cuz that's what Murph would've done.

P.P.S. For the record, Murph thinks the molotovs are a good idea... he's just really hoping that Jake's not planning on lighting it just yet... and maybe that the guy'll think to make more than just the one if he's serious about coming along...

Lovely work as always Eol.

And yes Amber gives a positive response then goes to get Emily collected... she takes the pool stick with her.

Then I guess we get to deal with whatever is behind that door... ready or not.

now hear this!

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.

Does he look...

...like Lee Majors?



Welcome aboard, Tiamat... The concept cracked me up (mainly cuz I was a big fan of The Fall Guy when I was younger... Heather Thomas was super yummy (and oddly enough, not a redhead, so go figure ).

Sweet!

Hooray for the shotgun and ammo (and the baseball bat, too)!

Hooray even more for there not being a ravenous raging horde waiting outside the basement!

Anything else of use available in the bar proper? (Largish bags of some sort to carry supplies as we manage to gather them, first aid stuff, etc)?

hmmm

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.

What?! No Zombies!?

Just keeping us on our toes I see... here I was expecting to be fending off a whole hoard... and there is nothing.

I'm just digging my own grave here aren't I?

But... onto business.

Amber was working on getting Emily up and moving. As we have yet to hear from the Princess I was wondering

a) if you expected we would soon (you likely have more knowledge on this than us), if so I would keep my post pretty short and sweet with just coaxing to get her up...

or...

b) how much liberty do I have in getting her up the stairs and coming along with us.

And what do you mean no food? Not even bar peanuts?

Ohhh... there was a mirror behind the bar right? Can we smash it and wrap the ends of shards in cloth to use as daggers?

okay

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.

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?

wrigley

i agree wrigley should have backup generators and easily deffencible but might we stop by a store before leaving bc for all we know the food went bad and we may need some more besides u never know when someone left their keys in their car at wallyworld. anyways dont leave my drunk a** there please hes sobering up XD

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?
