The Search For Doc Littlelake.
The previous episode ended here East of Jacksboro part 3
The cops are tired, confused and more than a little stressed - they know Amy, so naturally wanted to take her with them to "safety". They couldn't go looking for her father since they were so busy on their own patch, and anyhow, Jacksboro was now under the jurisdiction of the National Guard.
Brad has agreed the group will try and find out what's happened to the Doc (out of Amy's earshot, the cops don't rate their chances - he's been gone a couple of days now, so he's probably on the road to Nevada.... or the worse has happened).
The group rested overnight at the Johnson's place before setting off early next morning in the pickup and Johnsn's Jeep, parking up before reaching the edge of town (and removing the rotor arms from both vehicles), and continued on foot.
Doc Littlelake's surgery is on the edge of town, situated between a pair of office buildings and opposite a diner. From a vantage point on their approach, the group can see the building and the Doc's RV parked behind it.......... it looks like he's not on the road to Nevada!
The initial set-up with the grey surgery building visible between the two office blocks - the street is clear, thanks to a jackknifed rig at the intersection.
Two PEF's are in the brownstone building, with a third actually in the surgery. There's a single zed up ahead, with more out of sight beyond the row of buildings to the left and in the woods behind the diner to the right. Quite a horde has appeared in the bottom left corner thanks to throwing between "5 and 7 o'clock" for random placement!
The group took in the scene with steely eyed determination, but Amy was looking visibly shaken by the undead as Brad swung his machete in an arc that cleaved the zombies skull.
A long overdue return to the ATZ - FFO campaign, and the very last outing for my cork floor tiles! I've almost cured the warping problem, but the ink has really faded on the print-outs, so they're being retired and recycled after this game. It's also the first game using Hugh's (Colgar6) Event Cards, so a bit of "out with the old and in with the new" going on!
I hope everyone is managing to plod on as our heatwave continues - it's certainly affecting my painting and modelling output. Thanks for calling in, and I hope you'll enjoy following this encounter which will have to be played over a couple of sessions due to work commitments.
