OCC- Two more zombies have been killed, but now Bud is a zombie as well. This leaves Buzz plus 59 more zombies. Buzz and two more are going after the dead skinhead, four are chasing the truck (one is now almost dead), and the others are now all inside the building. IC- At Brownson's Airfield- Kimberly arrived at the chopper, having loaded two shells into her shotgun on the run. She stood between Erica Spears and the oncoming zombies in order to protect the pilot, but a little to the side so she could shoot as well. Erica knew that it was a long range shot, but she was very accurate and still had a decent chance to at least hit one of the creatures once. She fired twice at a runner's head, but both shots missed. Back at the truck, Joe Barring had finished reloading his shotgun, but the zombies were too far away for him to hit them at all with it, so he tried to climb up onto the truck. He had no success either. Baldwin finished reloading his Colt Viper and took aim at the creatures as they approached. The three walkers were now fifty yards away from the truck, and the four runners were forty yards off. Two more runners were now sixty yards away, and the other walker was still off in the distance. The two walkers heading for the chopper were now fifty yards away, and the three runners were forty yards away. The other two walkers were too far off to worry about yet. In the parking lot- As Jeff floored the gas pedal and the truck headed north, some of the zombies followed it. Mutt fired at the next closest one with his M-16, but the bullet went wide. The skinhead with the shotgun also fired, hitting the nearest zombie but not quite bringing it down. Buzz reached the skinhead who was just a few yards away and began to gnaw on the corpse. A few more zombies were right behind him. In the diner- The zombies in the diner stopped devouring Bud, and his body began to stir. They staggered en masse to the corridor entrance, jostling against each other to be the first through the door in pursuit of Jim Kerr. Two of them shoved through, their arms outstretched. Others, unable to get through the mob, began heading around for the kitchen. Then Jim Kerr heard a loud crack behind him as two zombies smashed the office door to pieces! They pushed forward after him. At the same time, the back door gave way under the ghouls' fists and more of them spilled inside. Then the kitchen door was smashed down and more of them pushed inside. Jim was surrounded! (OCC- Jim gets one chance to act before the zombies can attack him. Up or down - decide fast! Also, roll Sanity [currently 85%] first. If Jim fails the roll, he will lose 1d10 Sanity points but can still flee up or down. However, if he fails the roll he would have to succeed in a roll against his Dex of 15 on 1d20 in order to climb up. If he were to fail that roll, he would not be able to climb yet and the zombies would attack him. Going downstairs does not require a Dex roll to succeed, nor is a Dex roll needed if Jim succeeds at his Sanity roll.) At the motel- Since the three remaining walking corpses were now below the roof's overhang and out of Stephanie's line of fire, she took the time to reload her pistol. Only one bullet was left in the chamber and the clip was empty, so she ejected it and slapped in a fresh one. Now that she was no longer busy shooting, the thought of what must have happened to Brigetta began to sink in. When she had left the diner, Horst had been about to die and Dr. Hausmann had been trying to save him, but there was nothing she could have done. He must have been reanimated and attacked her, which would account for her arm injury. If she had been bitten... Stephanie kept her tears in check and concentrated on what she had to do. "Let's get this ladder up and bring it over to the east side," she said. Jenny Cooper helped her, not noticing her internal turmoil. The zombie that Mr. Foo had shot first climbed the open stairway and reached the balcony. So had the uninjured one, but the last one was still forcing its way through the obstacles on the other staircase. Mr. Foo retreated back into the motel room and Ellen Cody shut and locked the door behind him. She then dragged the nightstands over to the door and stacked them in front of it. "I was starting to get a little worried," she said. "If I were that easy to kill," said Mr. Foo, "I would have been dead a long time ago. Let's head back into the room as far as we can. Stay behind me, and I'll shoot any of them that get inside." On the T-Bone's rooftop- (OCC- No more zombies outside the diner are at point blank range. Roll to hit normally now.) Sally reloaded the Beretta and looked around for a new target. Bo Richards hurried back to the hatch, loading two shells into his shotgun as he did. "Hurry, Jim!" called Dr. Hausmann. "Up the ladder, fast! They're closing in!" Father McCormick fired at one of the zombies going after the dead skinhead, hitting it in the head but failing to drop it. Rita noticed that the .357 Magnum was now empty, and she did not have any bullets for it. "Give me that!" she shouted, snatching the .38 back from Ashley and firing twice at the same zombie, hitting once and finishing it off. Tisha fired at another zombie's head, connecting and wounding it. David shot twice at the zombie as well, hitting it in the head once and killing it. Underneath the T-Bone- Beth reached the warehouse again, where Jimmy and Mitchell were busy preparing the barricade. "Let me lend a hand," she said. "Almost everyone else has gone up or into the liquor closet by now. Those things will be there soon!" Further below- The scene on the other side of the cell door was horrifying. The walls were made of thick, old stone. Two young women were manacled to opposite walls, wearing only their underwear. One was alive and screaming, straining to break her chains free from the wall. The other was dead and moaning inhumanly. She was also pulling at her chains in an effort to reach the living woman - and she was a lot stronger. Just as the door opened, her chains finally snapped free. She turned to look at the newcomers, then surged towards the other captive. Duke held his ground and raised his M-14. Robert also remained steady, but Lynne shuddered slightly and added her shrieks to those of the poor woman in the cell. Max was agitated, but kept his wits about him. The undead woman moved with incredible speed, but stumbled and missed when she tried to grab her fellow prisoner. She then tried to bite her leg, but the chained woman squirmed out of the way. Lynne raised her Grease gun and opened up on the creature with a burst, but none of them hit due to her lack of skill with the weapon, even at such close range. Unfortunately, Buddy was in the line of fire, and he couldn't quite get out of the way in time. The poor dog was hit by three .45 slugs and was cut to shreds. Max whimpered in distress and fled back down the corridor, unable to cope with the loss of his friend. Duke was aiming at the ghoul and did not see what had happened to Buddy yet. He shot it in the head, having no trouble hitting from so close. Its head was blown open and it fell, unmoving.
