- or - "How ATZ:FFO writes its own script!"
Anyone who's been following the exploits of Brad and his group through the zombie apocalypse might remember that they'd set up camp around a fairly secluded gas station / diner.
It was at this point that I started tracking time and events using the ATZ:FFO campaign rules, and these include a check for "Involuntary Encounters", the result of which was that the camp had been burgled during the night in week two and the thieves had made off with a load of rations!
The burglary unsettled Brad - someone had found their location, and the open nature of the camp (and proximity of the woods) made it difficult to defend, so he persuaded the rest of the group that they needed to move (AGAIN!)
A higher priority though, was that the stolen rations also needed to be replaced.
The Kirkman family who'd just joined the group know the area, and suggested driving up to Lorenzo and trying their luck at the "FOOD-O-RAMA" store there. The vehicles were loaded up, and the convoy headed north.
Brad, Hannah, Zac, Dave and Hillary went into town on foot and arrived in sight of the store without encountering any problems.
(Downtown Lanzio - set up using my old PDF boards and buildings cos the mdf "make over" is still just a work in progress)
The horde started shambling into view just as the group reached the front entrance to the store.
Zac peered through the broken doors, only to spot a couple of survivors holding off a good handful (7) of zeds.
He swung his machete and split the head of the leading zombie as he shouted a warning to the folks in the store to get the hell out while they can!
So, a failed supply run, and unfortunately no one in the group noticed the couple they'd just rescued from the store slipping off down a side alley as they made their way back towards the parking lot -
