Location 1: Collecting Doc
This takes place in an urban setting but it will count as suburban for generating zombies as per the Day One rules. The objective is to get to Doc's house, get him and his stuff and return to the car to go to the next location. Making the trip are:
PDoid - Rep 4 Civilian; Attributes: Athlete and Fencer (house rule - see previous posts); Weapons: Shotgun and Cricket Bat
Sweetpea - Rep 3 Civilian; Attributes: Slow; Weapons: 2 BA Pistols
Monkeyboy - Rep 3 Civilian; Attributes: Athlete; Weapons: Pistol and Hockey Stick
Doc, if we find him, is a Rep 3 Civilian with no attributes and armed with a shotgun and an axe.
I'm going to take a shot at making this batrep more narrative in style so I won't be mentioning any rules or dice rolls. Feel free to ask rules questions about the situations you read about if you want to know the gaming details. Here goes...
We couldn't believe what was happening. The news sounded like something out of a movie, a movie we were all too familiar with. Zombies?! Really?! We'd always fantasized about what we'd do in this situation, but when faced with it in real life we were just like everyone else: terrified. I called my buddy, Doc, and together we decided to hole up at my place. We thought it'd be better to travel in groups. Rather than him coming to us alone, we decided to go pick him up and bring him to our house. Besides, we needed to stop for supplies if we were going to see this thing through.
It wasn't far so we started jogging along the street. The neighborhood was quiet. It was eerie. There was no one around. We could hear traffic noise from the main street and what sounded like gunshots in the distance but otherwise it was very calm. In other circumstances it might have been a beautiful, sunny, fall day. Nothing moved except a slight breeze stirring the trees.
Suddenly, from the house on the right, we heard the bang of a door slamming open and a group of terrified people poured into the street, heading right for us. They were out of their minds and barreled right into us. I was taken by surprise and knocked off my feet. It all happened so fast! I think I must have blacked out or got hit on the head or something because I don't remember what happened next.
