|Zombies to left of them, zombies to the right of them...|
The photograph on the left shows their start position in yellow, zombies in red and their immediate objective, the supermarket employees entrance in blue.
Unfortunately it doesn't show the Potential enemies forces (PEF's), but it does show the myriad of dice still left on the table from the previous game.
|"No running ahead of me Mattias"|
There were about a dozen or so zombies on the table at the start and all the spawn points were back functioning and there was less chance of traffic.
Scott was armed with his "trusty" reproduction Katana whilst Mattias had the complimentary Wakazashi that came with it, they also both had a secondary one-handed improvised weapon.
There plan was to see if there was anyone in the supermarket, as the employees cars were still there from the previous day. With their plan all set they took off (at a run of course).
Luckily for the two of them, the zombies were seemingly distracted and took little notice of them and the three PEFs (ahead and to the left of them) were similarly idle.
As they made their way across the road the zombies did start to take an interest in their apparent breakfast and another was attracted by the movement.
The PEF's however continued to be disinterested in the whole proceedings.
|"Briands, erm I mean brains"|
|Two PEFs can be seen behind the fence|
|A family of three pops up !|
|"Ignore the bins !"|
This was an excellent opportunity to try out their newly acquired weapons to help a family that was going to be in trouble very soon. So our heroes picked up their pace and headed for the back of the supermarket, hoping that the family they left in their wake would be a suitable distraction to their course of action.
(Late news just in: "Officials report chivalry is officially dead in Springwater Hill")
It was on the cards that this wasn't going to end well for the forsaken family in Laslo park, the child followed Scott and Mattias' example and did a runner, whilst the father bravely fought of a zombie as his wife fell by his side.
|General view, the child can just be made out behind our heroes.|
|"Look Mattias, more zombie bait..."|
|"Head for the park she said"|
|"We'll be OK there she said..."|
|"Save me please misters"|
Brendan did a runner, back from whence he had come whilst the kid from the park ran ahead of the pair of heroes, now sauntering toward their goal, allowing the child to be some sort of "scout", all of this commotion of course attracted more zombies to their area.
|"Stop running so fast, damn you"|
Ignoring the child's plea for help (allegedly) Mattias took off like the wind, whilst Scott was right behind him.
|"Mmmm, family bite sized child"|
|"Everyone over here, form a queue"|
The two remaining PEFs moved up to the corner of the Supermarket and behind it.
Almost as soon as it had started the feast in the park stopped and the two zed's there started to wonder where their next meal was coming form.
|"Run rabbit, run rabbit"|
An event cropped up in the form of yet another runner, making her way across the table. (from spawn point 6 to spawn point 2, not particularity interesting really - it having no effect in game)
|"Erm, its locked "|
|"Who's the daddy now?"|
Mattias, tried to open the door, but found it to be locked !
|Brumm, brumm, SPLAT !|
Behind the supermarket the 'boy' was attracting zombies like flies to shit and the rare car appearing on the roads made mincemeat out of the zombie attracted by the noise it made speeding along the main road.
|"This appears locked too"|
|Popular feeding frenzy|
|"Run, run run"|
|"Thanks Dawn !"|
|"Umm, yep, definitely locked"|
|"Enjoying it ?", "I'm having a ball"|
|"Run from the zombies, run, run run"|
|"Hi, I'm Mattias, I'm with them"|
Mattias took his chance and ran for the door to be greeted by Dawn.
The girl runner made it off the table to safety without incident as the two zombies in the park looked on despondently.
|"Oh no it isn't"|
|"It's behind you "|
|"Let me in"|
|"I'm sorry we're closed"|
Inside the supermarket, the lone zombie attacked the manager Jake, effectively putting him out of the fight (now the floor manager ?).
Scott decided to finally put his Katana to use and attacked the zombie, obviously not going for the head as the zombie merely joined the manager on the concrete, but even as he did so Mattias rushed into the storeroom and under Scott's instruction stabbed the zombie through the eye, returning him to a more permanent state of death.
At this stage, we called the game.
The two "heroes" had effectively achieved their their objective, had the makings of a party of four (or five if Jake the manager survives) and the game was effectively spent as were we.
I too realise the frustration of a split aar and decided to relate this in full, despite its length and
there will be another instalment in this continuing saga soon (when real-life allows it to eventually gets played).
Thanks oonce more to Bryan/Vampifan for taking the phots and for noth himself and Mattyoo for taking the parts of the main characters.
Any resemblance to any person living dead, or undead was of course entirely intentional.
Thanks for taking the time to read through, or to at least look at the piccies and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
