As much as his head told him to get home and get himself better equipped, his heart won out and Brad headed straight for the suburbs of Perryton. He could stay off the highway and follow the roads around Lake Meredith, then along the north bank of the Canadian River.
Brad rolled 2D6 v his Rep3 and scored one pass. The location number (2) is lower than his rep, so counts as passed 2D6 and he "arrives there normally, counting as next location"
This left me with a slight problem - I didn't have any terrain for this encounter!
Luckily I had a couple of mdf kits (from "banksjohnedwards" on ebay), they're tiered for access but have no interior detail, so it was a case of making the interior walls from foamcore before a quick paint and weather.
The Perryton 'burbs are printed pdf tiles from the old Worldworks "The Village" set, pasted onto the back of a foamex sheet (I say "back" because the other side already had some urban tiles glued to it!)
This was all done over the last couple of days, while the table is STILL in use as a cake decorating stand! Anyhow, on with the AAR...........
Brad arrived just before mid-day, he'd witnessed signs of disruption, but avoided any trouble. It all looked very quiet on the estate - would she be here?
Before he could even think about "putting the boot in", the guy had scrambled to his feet and sped off.
They both got busy, but when they stepped outside...
Winning the next activation, he despatched it with an "Easy Kill", putting a bullet through its head.
After comforting her the best he could, he went down and reversed his RV out of the way and made sure the coast was clear (the noise of gunshots and engines somehow failed to attract any more trouble) before getting her, still obviously shaken, into her motorhome.
As they departed, Brad wondered if he should have checked the neighbors house for anything useful, or maybe taken their pickup instead of the RV? Weighing it up against the possible hazards, and with Hannah the way she was at the moment, he knew he'd made the right choice........
Only two locations, but that wraps it up for the Day One scenario. The only other possible location on the list might have been a 'box store' for something more effective against zombies than handguns, but they haven't yet figured that one out, and attempting to find Travis has become a priority.
Thanks for reading through. I hope you enjoyed it, and will come back to see how the pair get on as they struggle to survive the zombie apocalypse.
As for me, I'll be cracking on with some new modular terrain since I've just picked up a couple of packs of 1ft square cork tiles from Wickes!
Oh, and I've realised that I've been posting on a very ad-hoc basis - I will try and stick to a regular timetable from now on!!
