I've still got other 'distractions' to deal with this week (and of course mini's to paint for the challenge), so I'll be playing this out over a number of sessions.
It's the morning of day 13, and the group have spent the best part of a week at the farm, making the perimeter more secure and building a second line of defence around the house itself. They've collected everything useful from around the site and even managed to improvise some melee weapons and a petrol syphoning kit, but now Brad has decided to split the group and lead a recon / scavenging mission before food becomes an issue.
They're heading over to a fishing retreat that Travis remembers out in the woods surrounding the lake, a few miles South East of their position.
Leaving Travis and Zac to "guard the fort" Brad, Hannah and Nate set off on foot.
Arriving at the woods without incident, they followed the track and made a cautious approach towards the cabin.
With the pickup parked outside, things were looking promising.........
Using a D12 (as per Bryan's house rules), this is how they "clock faced" onto the board.......
As Brad closed up the group and headed for the cabin door, two of the PEF's broke cover, with one heading towards them and the other directly away...
Meanwhile, the group had a fight on their hands as the zombies were closing in and the first three attacked.
Having quickly dealt with the first attack, the group headed straight for the cabin, confident they were going to reach safety before the trailing zeds reached them - then it all went crazy as a guy appeared at the door and the third PEF came into sight from around the side of the shack!
