Zombie Apocalypse Now

Session 2: ZDay 5-7

ZDay 5: The party took a few days to let Mel upgrade her tow truck with a battering ram and window armor. They also sent out a team (Ullah, Jason Harkin, and Dr Welks) to salvage for supplies. They first looted a gun shop which had already been raided, but managed to get a few rifles, pistols, bows, crossbows, silencers, scopes, and ammo. The team then went to a gas station for food and fuel but when they saw a zombie behind the counter running the cash register and wiping down the counter they fled. They last place looted was the “Piggly Wiggly” a local grocery store where they collected 2 weeks worth of food per person.

Items of note: while the elementary school across the street had been set up as a FEMA disaster center including tents in the parking lot and playground, there was no signs of habitation or activity. Definite zombie activity in the area as well as looters.

On Z day 7 the team drove out of Powder Springs on Highway 278/Route 6. they encounter some stopped cars along the way but were able to move or go off road. They passed through one location with a sign on the side of the road directing them off the road to a trader, but they decided it may be an ambush so moved on. On the other side of Dallas, GA they stopped when they heard an explosion North of the road. The team (Ullah, Jason harkin, and DR. Welks) investigated as discovered a man chained to a post in the middle of a mine field. One mine had gone off turning a sloucher into a crawler which had recovered enough to continue to move towards the man. The crawler ended up setting off another mine and the team rescued the Robert Allen.

Robert was the owner of a construction company in Dallas, GA. He decided to evacuate his family from Dallas when he saw defeated and broken soldiers fleeing through his town. he did not really believe in the rumor of zombies but something was definitely wrong. with the clogged roads he had to walk his family to Paulding County Airport to seek the safety of the newly constructed military post. On his trek, he witnessed a fairly steady stream of air traffic leaving the air field. When he arrived, he was greeted with the business end of a machine gun. his wife and kids separated and he was thrown into a holding cell. Apparently, a small group of 15 soldiers had mutinied after the base was abandoned by the military, they then sought to set themselves up as kings. Robert tried to foment a revolt but some of the prisoners turned him in. “You have to understand, some of these guys fled all the way from Atlanta. I don’t know what they saw but they were more than happy just to be safe. More than willing to trade freedom for safety like some medieval serfs or something.” – Robert Allen As punishment they put him to use as a diversion to derail zombies from the main route to the airfield.

Robert warned the group about an ambush on the road ahead and asked the team for help in rescuing his family. Scouting the ambush site the team discovered a serpentine barrier of cars with an Humvee at the end with a mounted machine gun. The team sent Ullah, Jason Harkin, and Dr. Welks to sneak around and ambush the ambushers. They fought and killed them and then waited for a second group to relieve the first. When the second group arrived they ambushed them as well. After re-arming and armoring they went forth to scout the airfield. The team left off with trying to formulate a plan of attack.

The Story...
Session 1

CRISIS! almost overnight people around the world were laid low with an illness that many called the Super Flu. The exact estimates are not known but as much as 30% of the population may have contracted the illness swamping the hospitals. Many people were denied admittance to the hospitals regardless of their insurance plans. In some areas the poor were turned out and their space in the hospitals sold for exorbitant prices. As people started to die, civil disorder and violence took through the streets. The cities went into marshal law with the governors calling in National guard and asking the federal government for to intervene with regular Army,

Many retirees and volunteers were also called up to act as reserves and provide support that is where the party comes in. 5th stringers pulled from the bench to help the main lines of effort deal with this national emergency and act a fillers until the US government could bring back assets from the chaos of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as from posts throughout the world. But it seems like no place is safe from the break down and this may take some time.

The Party begins the game by going on a mission to rescues 5 scientists from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) which has been besieged by rioter. Since the facility houses some of the most deadly diseases in the world there is a thermobaric device set to go off destroying everything in the facility.

Unfortunately the truth is more dire than the team could have predicted as they discovered that all but one of the scientists are dead and the rioters are ZOMBIES! The team fought a zombie formally Dr. Huff and escaped by throwing the zombie back into the room and shutting the door. the commotion stirred up zombies in the stairwell who proceeded to beat on the door including one rather large zombie. While fleeing a zombie hiding amongst the corpses of the doctors grabbed a party member and a fight ensued with the party fleeing as the large zombie ripped off the airlock door. On the roof the pilot had his throat ripped out by a zombies he was taking off. And to make matters worse the juggernaut zombie threw a door at the helo damaging the aircraft. The co-pilot managed to fly the damaged helo out of the city but crashed outside of the town of Powderville.

The party lost consciousness during the crash for easily half a day. Upon awakening they found themselves strapped into the now upside down helo stuck in the branches of the trees.It turns out that the co-pilot woke first and fled the crash. The party followed a dairy cow to the 1st Baptiste Church of Powderville which was a refuge for survivors. Unfortunately the refuge was anything but. The party met a friendly mechanic there named Mel. But they also ran into the pastor who seemed to blame the end of the world on sinners and outsiders. Apparently Mel seemed to be his focus of anger and the fanatics wanted to send her out to the growing horde of zombies as a sacrifice and to cleanse this house of God of sinners. The party did not think this was right and bravely faced off against the fanatics in a Mexican standoff. The tension was broke when a zombie teenager who had been pretending to be normal turned on the hapless humans by opening the church doors to the zombie horde. A firefight ensued and the party followed Mel out through the bell tower, across the roof and to the parking lot. Mel drove them away in her hatchback and ended up going to her garage on the edge of town. what will the team do now? They seem safe in the garage but their entrance was noted by a few ghouls who even now are shambling their way to the building.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
