T h e deciding h o u r has arrived.Se7en skims the astral plane to find a way to repel the oncoming zombie overrun.Beatrix gathers an army of survivors to throw the sweetest throwdown of the century.Dexter tries his best to get the word out about the cure. Dom and the rest make preperations to fight or fly.

Meanwhile . . . .
"Fly", as in "fly sky high in a mushroom cloud", I assume.
Sally bounces to the roof of the Tech building.Upon landing she discovers a SERVITOR OF GUILT encroaching on Dex. These astral fiends rarely wander about if only to feed- but why is DEX looking like such a healthy serving ?
>>12372519Didn't we promise not to answer that question?
>>12372519Should we deal with the Servitor? What exactly does it do when it "feeds"? Should we go back in time to prevent the cutting of the line, or get the equipment ready to repair it and cut down the repair time?
it feeds and feeds and feeds and feeds and feeds ! Mere humans are powerless against these metaphysical agents !
>>12372554but w a i t.Are these servitors or . . . .
>>12372554I'm voting we kick that things ass, Dex has enough trouble with zombies trying to eat him he doesn't need astral entities doing it too.I'm just not sure how. Se7en still has her ice powers right? Can she just freeze the thing?
Oh god it's the horror clubs Cthulu!
>>12372554Tell it to go fhtagn itself in the r'lyeh and leave our pals alone.
>>12372573>Tell it to go fhtagn itself in the r'lyehHahaha, this!
" NNOO ! "It says in so many voices. Cthulu latches on Dex like a crackfiend . Attacking Cthulu now would harm dex esp since its tendrils are dangerously dipped into his being.Now that you think about it... where did its physical body go ?
Meanwhile Beatrix makes her way to the cafeteria. She acquaints with the Book Club Brigade on the finer points of zombie literature.
When steps on something squishy...
A large severred tentacle...This cant be normal.That can't even be zombie normal.What the fuck genre is this game even taking anymore ?
>>12372629Oh, joy.Beatrix should poke it with her sword.
>>12372629I think we've gone through most of genres I can come up with off the bat. It's a short trip from splatter to slapstick.Now, maybe Sally could affect Dexter empathically from the astral plane, strengthening him against the guilt rather than fighting the beast. In addition to making rude elder handsigns to Cthulhu. Meanwhile, Beatrix and her Instant Warband should look into the apparent seafood infiltration.
" Dexter ? Can you hear me ? " " I'm going dive in now, ok ? I dont know what you did, but....
Zombie quest is great, what other quest started simply as a zombie survival and is now about some adorable psychic chick fighting Cthulhu?
Psycho Kinesis Activate.
Quiet day is quiet.
>>12372805It's taking place during the workday, and the pace of Zombie Quest allows for a more sedate response style, in contrast to the almost frenetic posting of, say, Zerg Quest when it hits its stride, Zeon Quest, or Destroyer Quest.
>>12372805Well I could say: So she's 'diving' into Dex and sees.....what?But why move us one post closer to auto-sage when the question is going to be answered anyway?
" I have opened Pandora's box "" And with it I released War, Famine, Disease and Death " " It is the cross that I must bear while I watch those I care for die around me "
" Unable to stand even under my own weight, I have opted to embrace this entity that have come to me in my dreams. To devour the guilt while I make the fruitless gesture at survival while mankind ultimately destroys himself and all his evils
>>12372943Astral tentacle porn! Hooray!
The Earth will go on.And the World will be saved from humanity.Of course.... it's not as if I didn't enjoy your company.
>>12372943Do you see Dom or any of the others make fruitless gestures? They know, just as well as you do how well and truly fucked they are, but they persist. They move forward, because they will not die with out a fight! If you continue making 'fruitless gestures' you're going to get them killed. Is that what you want? If it is then why the hell did you bother helping them in the first place? Why did you save Dom? So you started the zombie apocalypse, BIG FUCKING DEAL!! People die from worse daily, but if you really feel bad about it DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Wallowing in self pity does nothing does nothing except get people, your friends, killed!
>>12373038But . . .. t's so heavy. This whole thing is bigger than me. If you come near me you'll get crushed. So please , Sally. Turn back. Don't suffer.
>>12373095So you can't do it alone? There's nothing wrong with that, there's nothing wrong with asking for help. Just look at Dom. Do you think he would have made it this far alone? Absolutely not, he'd have died before the end of the first day. The only thing that's kept him alive is all the other people that have helped him along the way. Like Grainy and Rana and you. Do you really think that if you asked for their help they'd refuse? Sure they might get upset or angry, but they need you as much as you need them. When all is said and done there may be an accounting for your action, yes. You can't live in fear of that though, not if your truly sorry for what happened. When that does come, if you are truly sorry, it may not be as bad as you fear.
Meanwhile in the Cafeteria.A physical counterpart is found ! CORPOREAL CTHULU ASSAULTS THE CAFETERIA ! THE SURVIVORS ARE UNDER ATTACK !
>>12373235It's Go Time!Now, to be sure, are those survivors that are being controlled by those tentacles, or zombies?If zombies, then have the Book Club can give Cthulhu some lead (fire at the head) while the Krew give him a couple Molotov cocktails to wash it down. Beatrix and Stig take apart the tentacles and zombies on the ground.
A map updates. Zeds have joined in the party. The survivors are closed in.
>>12373278Like he said, book club and krew go for the head. Mean while Beatrix and Stig should focus on those tentacles. It would also be a good idea to rally the other survivors in the room with another inspiring speech. (here's hoping it works this time)
" PLEASE ! "" PLEASE HELP ME !" " I I CANT STAND IT ANYMORE ! "
START THIS SHIThttp://homestuck.bandcamp.com/track/dupliblaze-comagmahttp://homestuck.bandcamp.com/track/moonshatter
rolled 1 = 1" AIGHT YOU FUCKERS LISTEN UP ! " [fuck this shit reroll]
>>12373410Now grab his hand and pull him out! Maybe kick that Cathulhu wannabe in the face for good measure.
>>12373444Oh good god why?
LUNCH BREAK IM GONNA EAT MY SORROWS AWAY
"HEY YOU ! "" YEA YOU !" " THINK YOUR DAY IS BAD ? ""WELL ITS GONNA GET WORSE- BUT AT LEAST YOU DIDN'T GET BIT RIGHT ? "" right ? "
>>12373902Riiiiiiiight, anyway B-club and Krew aim for Cathulhus head. Beatrix and Stig go for the tentacles.
The Suicide Soldiers have joined the fight ! 2 groups of 4 suicidal motherfuckers have joined the fight with nothing to lose but their pride. They were on their way to destruction when they got bit so they're making their time ! Suicide soldiers can take 2 hits before going down, and vow to kill one of their own if they were to fall for the horde. They excel at melee , able to go toe to toe with the zed. Giving them a +1 to melee.
Correction: 3 groups of 4.
>>12373998Sweet!Two groups on the zombie menace. One group on the tentacles with Beatrix and Stig.
The initial group inserts themselves in the center of the map to go for a lightning strike tactic

She's gotten horrible rolls when trying to inspire, its really kind of uninspiring when she tries.
captcha: suggest warmaingWell, I guess captcha wants the krew to set some things on fire. How about the zombies that Cthulu is controlling?Unless those are survivors...

>>12375727Because the dice roller really, really, hates these guys.
>>12375762Maybe Se7en can get astral Cathulhu's attention there by distracting physical Cathulhu?
A desperate struggle commences.
I think Dom gets outdone by Beatrix in the "Saviour of the world, killer of zombies, save humans" departement.I mean she commands 2 whole squads while he carries around a wheelchaired nerd
rolled 18, 43, 39, 40, 19 = 159>>12375782Try this, then Beatrix Squad attack zombies with guns then Beatrix attacks Cthulhu zombie.

>>12375802How many people has Dom got killed? Zero.Beatrix? way more.
>>12375837No, they blew themselves up. They do that when overwhelmed.
Cover fire was given to the frontal group. 8 zombies defeated.
A map updates
>>12375880Fuck yeah book club! Now poor some fire into those zombies on the right!
Bea and Dom are playing two completely different games I think.Bea is in the business of racking up kills while Dom I see more as a survivor than a fighter. I think OP is giving us a chance to play this out either as a normal zombie survival or an all out war. Except when it comes to zombies and war they have an overwhelmind advantage dont they ?
THe BCB rolls out and gives cover fire.
rolled 6, 10, 8, 7, 9, 3, 10, 1, 10 = 64. .. .+1s for pinsir attack
rolled 58, 59, 61, 54, 38 = 270Also, has Dex been bitten or infected?Granted we need him alive for more cures, including Dom. We may not be able to save him, so if he is already dead, or doomed I suggest we molotov the hell out of CthulhuBut that's just me.captcha; 1791 parative
>>12376005No all of that is in Dex's mind
Book Club takes some names.10 zombies shotted.The 2 ss squads are freed up
>>12375937Dom's is about to face down a horde of 30 zombies with three people and a vending machine. Don't tell me he's not a fighter. The big difference is Dom's group has better weapons and better rolls.
a map updates
>>12375937Looking at the map I think Cathulhu is on the other side a wall.
Book Club wipe out those zombies. Beatrix inspiring speech time and please for the love of god make it work! Stig lead the SS in and start hacking shit up.
>>12376090>>12376105Actually I think he's attached to the ceiling. Either that or floating. Either way, lets bring him down to size. Have the LT grab a tentacle or two and drag ZomThulu down to Earth where Beatrix and the SS can introduce some grievous bodily harm to it.
Beatrix Morgenstern stairs down her opponnent , its been a bloody minute. And a right hot pain on her nerves. And her opponnent knows this too since it's probably the only thing here with the cranial capacity for hatred- and a mutual disdain for the other. And between the two of them in this hella staredown- it occurs to her that a mono y mono challenge seems to be whats in the books.Will you throw down the shit with an elder god in a this wartorn cafeteria ? Yes / No
>>12376233>>12376260AS sweet as that sounds right now ? I want to see this plan work ! 16 against 1 is better than 1 on 1
Any other votes ?Throwing down the mad shit will increase her level but it will definitely risk death.Going the normal route will continue the fight as normal
FUKKIN DO IT
1 - 1 so far. deadlock.
Un-mindfuck dex with se7en
>>12376260>>12376310B can take him. She has fury on her side
>>12376260Ritual of Chud go!
>>12376260I'm for doing. Stig best be ready to haul her ass out though.
" Hey mother fucker "
" Yeah I'm talking to you you Elder piece of shit " " You wanna throw down with me ? "" My name is Beatrix Motherfucking Morrinberg, and I'm gonna serve your ass like sushi and feed you to my in sink disposal "" So you best come down here if you're boss battle enough to go this road with me "
>>12376260A duel sounds perfectly fitting to me.
A mad throw down starts. Stig clears the room. A zombie doesn't even move a goddamn step.We're doing this.Were making this happen.
something is slow here...Captcha dolls efeced
>>12376636Slash that fuckers face tentacles off.
Slash and a Parry
rolled 2, 8, 6, 8, 8, 10 = 42Slash and a Parry
She aims for the tentacles and slashes 2, The Cthulu like parries and sends her flying to one of the tables.
rolled 2, 8, 10, 4, 10 = 34Cthulu threatens with its 5 remaining tentacles what do !?
>>12376814Cover behind these tables and try to take at least another two of the tentacles after the incoming strike.
>>12376831I like that plan
rolled 3 = 3table cover bonus +1
Three tentacles grab you ! Limb tearing or pastiche japanese erotica is a near possibility !
>>12376938Cut the tentacles!
Slash the one most likely stabilizing you, attempt to make a pendulum movement afterward. On the upswing take out another, or parry if he attacks with a free one.
>>12376957Following this spin on the downward swing and attempt to clear any remaining tentacles after the ensuing knot. (sorry for not condensing)
rolled 10, 3, 3, 4 = 20. . .
>>12376951while saying "Do I look like a school girl?"
>>12376636Whirlwind to cut through the tentacles, slash across the eyes, then a jab into one of the eyes.
rolled 3, 5, 9 = 17With the cheer of a crowd and a heart pumping loudly. Beatrix swipes at all three tentacles and leaps out to jab the Cthulu creature.With its two remaining tentacles left it...
>>12377299wait for the remaining two tentacles to strike, then perry too the side and go for the head.If you can use any form of Space Void Techniques I would recommend using it in addition.
>>12377339Speaking of space void stuff what has se7en been doing while this brawl has gone on?
rolled 5 = 5. . .Finally figured out what space void means.
>>12378179Really because I didn't, I was just referencing every attack Hakumen does.
rolled 1, 3 = 4>>12377667She kinda tried to help Dex.
>>12378420Clearly she cannot beat the monster, its up too Dex. Shout encouragement at him.
rolled 5 = 5Within the physical realm the creature attempts to swipe at Beatrix's attack and fails.The woman is too ready to fight. Too ready to create an end. Is her desire greater? Maybe. Two tentacles fall to the ground as she goes for the final jab.
>>12378655>time for witty one liner"Your an Octopussy"then final blow
rolled 5, 10, 10, 3, 5, 2, 5, 1, 10, 9 + 2 = 62>>12378945This! a resounding yes!
rolled 8 = 8"DEX IF WE DON'T DO SOMETHING NOW...THERE WILL BE MORE DEAD THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. YOU CAN STILL SAVE PEOPLE!"
The moment Se7en feels Dex's hand touch her own she looks on in surprise as his want and need to help phases into an......Umbrella?Said umbrella seems to be able to blast out attacks.
And a final blow is made on the other side.
>>12379989I feel like this quest started out as a nice zombie quest thread. And I was like 'sweet'It then turned into a pretty cool zombie quest with psychic aspects. And I was like 'alright thats cool'Then it turned into a pretty cool zombie quest with huge psychic aspects along with some strange anime-esque facets. And I was like 'this is goddamn awesome'tl;dr: nicely done Journal et Diary. I approve. Have my entire savings of internets. You deserve them more than me.
Cthulu's psyhic projection materializes into a totem of guilt. Dexter's manifestation of guilt can now be embraced.Literally. . . . . . . . . . . .. . .The power of friends can be felt from within.
>>12380029Oh my god I was gonna have a heart attack there.I thought you were gonna end with. And then IT SUCKS NOW ITS NOT ABOUT ZOMBIES OR SURVIVAL ANYMORE etc.But I AM trying to keep to the original aspects of the quest. Despite adding on a lot of unnecessary shit-fluff.Thanks for your support bro !
Dex looks at the doll in his hand. Did he have this in his pocket the entire time?Se7en smiles from the other plane. Certainly there is more work to be done.
Beatrix Levels the fuck up. A swirl of galactic high is crying out to be grasped into her being.Pick 2 brackets to improve !
>>12380193Our original plan was to go back in time and either prevent the satellite uplink from being cut, or preparing a secondary link. Can we still do that?
yes - sorry for that derail.
>>12380230I'd say upgrade lead, we need better inspiration if we're gonna get any of these people out of here alive.
>>12380230Can you explain what exactly "Throw D." "Tag" and "Lead" do?At least one into inspire.
Mr. Clock is taken out and dialed back a couple minutes.
>>12380305Throw Down is already mastered. It is when you challenge a leader to a one on one. The person with the most troops cheering them on gets a +1 bonus. Levelling this will bring up other benefits.Tag Team allows for two squads to perform special maneuvers or assist for each other, for doubled ammo usage for the lead squad.Example: use 5 molotov members to shoot alongside the BCB for more attacks.
Diary is signing out. Thanks for dealing with my for the past three days~Here's a gift.
>>12380357I vote for tag team and lead.Dom may be the central hero everyone likes, but it'll be Beatrix who takes charge.
Oh right, LEAD allows her to lead a Charge and take a squad with her. That squad gets a +1 on top of the inspire bonus tshould that actually succeed
>>12380357Tag Team, and I'd like to know what benefits we would get from Throw Down if it's already at Master Level.
Throwdown will allow her to get more buffs per squad at higher levels. It may even unock some one on one based moves. Bonuses unlock when you throwdown to ensure its success.
>>12380553I'll put my other vote on Throw Down, then.
tag team is in. but throw down or lead...hmmm
Throwdown and Inspire
Tag Team and Lead have been learned.From now on Beatrix can Lead charges with a single squad. Tag Team allows two squads to act as one fused squad, or one bolstered makeshift squad with a single role.
you might need to work on your public speaking skills however.For now cursing fiuriously becomes you.
going on slow mode . things are going down.up next > > Se7ens timeskip
>>12380689What's wrong with cursing furiously? Seriously, a simple "FUCK THIS SHIT! GO FUCK THESE COCK-SUCKING LITTLE WHORES!" can be a pretty effective "speech" IMO.Anyway, let's get a head count of the survivors their status.
War Boons:36 Survivors/ Untrained.Molotov Krew: 5 hardcore motherfucksBCB: 9 sharpshooting paranoid bitches Suicide Survivors: 10 relentless soldiers with 16 hours to live.
We need to move. The cafeteria is no longer secure. We need to find a new place to hunker down. That, or go round up more survivors, and maybe get them into cars. Zombies can't catch us if we're driving.
>>12380810When you say 16hours to live, do you mean they got bit or because of them being suicidal motherfuckers?
Damn, we don't know about Dex having a cure do we. Hmm, lets go with continue looking for survivors and then fall back to the garage.
>>12381021Falling back to the garage is good, because it gets Beatrice and her crew access to cars, and if they meet up with Rainy, they can be apprised of the Cure.Still a chance of death, but at least also a chance at life. And since it effectively makes the Cured immune to zombie bites, they can still act as Suicide Soldiers.We should ask if any of the survivors are Engineering majors, Art Majors in Industrial Art (welding), or were in the Cars Club. If any of them have welding experience, we should drive a bunch of vans and trucks over to the Engineering building, break out some sheet metal and welding torches, and start up an A-Team jury-rigging montage to make us some armored vehicles.
>>12381090Haha, I think I love you.
Anyway we can get a pic of the city, or the area around the university anyway.
Map Updates. Some notes>Dom is riding around the tech building destryong some zombs. It went swimmingly with no trouble at all. They make their way to the garage as well to begin fortifications w i t h Ready in tow.>Rainy's team are consolidating the resources in the garage- word of the cafeteria attack has JUST reached them.> Sally has transported herself to 40 something minutes ago after helping dexter with the final horror club boss.The Horror club is defeated, but the northern half of campus is still unexpored.
>>12381308Okay, Beatrice and her crew follow the plan outlined here: >>12381090I'd like to switch to Sally right now, 40 minutes ago. Once we quickly take care of the satellite dish's cable, we can take a look through the Gym, Stadium and Main Building to see what's going on in the present.
.>>12381090Out of the 36 unclaimed survivors....6 are artists6 are engineers3 are medical students5 are athletes10 have seen the A- Team7 possesses more than two talents. These statistics dont add up 1 for 1.With Ready as an engineering Queen. You can pretty much throw a bunch of people at her to lead a project.
>>12381347I am now envisioning some scary Dawn of the Dead, A-Team, McGuyver superbus caravan led by a giant monstertruck, all sporting heavy weaponry, improvised or otherwise. Let's do this shit. AFTER we get that damned data link up.We also need to send a team up North to check the stadium and main building.
>>12381347>Ready as an engineering Queen. You can pretty much throw a bunch of people at her to lead a project.You shouldn't have done that. You REALLY shouldn't have done that.Okay PEOPLE! Here's the plan! We're going to take as many trucks, vans, and cars we can to the Engineering Building! Then! WE!WILL!BUILD!ARX ARCIS MAXIMUS! STEAMPUNK TRANSFORMER OF THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!
Sally slides back through time -Gotcha !
>>12381405Such a proect will take a month... at least.
>>12381432Will the umbrella defeat chainsaw attacks?
unless vorhees is a metaphysical being , he cannot observe her.
>>12381440Oh very well. If we can't have a giant steampunk Transformer, then let's go with the A-Team/MacGuyver montage of armor-plating some vans and installing gun turrets to make them into make-shift IFV's, and putting some basic armor on the windows of regular sedans with gun ports to protect against overwhelming hordes, and put plows on trucks and armor their cabins to push their way through large crowds.And if they have an especially powerful engine on a vehicle, armor it up and put some flamethrower turrets, gun ports, and maybe some spinning blades to turn it into a clockwork steam- and diesel-powered nightmare of fire, lead, and diamond-tipped saw blades to hold the line at the Main Gates of the campus.
>>12381444Seconding this question.Another idea is to use Lemon Lime gum to short out Jason's chainsaw (if electric), or Cinnamon to cause the fuel tank to burst into flame (if gas-powered).
>>12381521DON'T DO THAT SNAKE YOU'LL CREATE A TIME PARADOX!!!!!!
>>12381521She could just, you know, move it. Then unplug it. That way, time paradox avoided. So when the gang goes back up there to fix it, they'll be all like, "WTF who unplugged my internets?"
>>12381432Why is his head on fire? Is he Doomrider!Jason?captcha: yolinard againstWhy are you against Doomrider!Jason, captcha?
>>12381444[I totally stayed up 2 hours in front of the computer trying ot think of a power for this thing.]The Ambrellu as the Meta Weapon: Going through the astral stream could be dangerous, and so Sally can use the umbrella to protect herself from wandering entities. Against enemies she can expend any amount of Sugar Points to [EXORCISE] them. That is- to convert enemies/people into harmless incarnations such as a doll in the physical plane by opening her umbrella and paying an expenditure of sugar points. W h e n converted to an item, Se7en can transport the proxy around to whatever time and place It existed in to patch the gaps in the continuum.When she closes her Ambrellu, said proxy object[s] revert to their original selves in the positions they were placed- And she gets back half the points she spent.
AND NOW THAT YOU KNOW WHAT WILL YOU DO !?
>>12384518Wait does this mean that when she closes the Ambrellu the Cathulhu doll will convert back to normal Cathulhu? Or was he some how permanently converted into a doll?
Dear Journal, we mustve cleared a couple dozen zombies running for the tech building. Dexter should be safe for now but now El Red's wheels are all greasy from the zombie mud and we're about less than half way through the gas. I wonder what everyone else is doing...
>>12384518Ok so all she has to do is convert Jason into a doll and move him forward in time a few minutes to right before Dom climbed up to the roof. The fight will proceed as normal. Thus causing Dom to interrupt Jason before he can cut the cable. Se7en then of course has to unplug the cable so as to prevent a paradox. This at least wont take as long to fix as a cut cable.
>>12384825Well technically - Astral cthulu wont be defeated for another 40 minutes. Plus- the doll is in the future, when it was defeated. And if it was released now- it would return to its physical body wh-OH it got killed.
>>12384877Mostly the question was, is the change back from doll form automatic when the ambrellu is closed or can Se7en keep things in doll form even with the ambrellu closed?It is good to know that Cathulhu won't be a problem, though. I hate that guy.
>>12384992Yes. Dolls will change back once the umbrella is closed. But it will be ready to abstract other things after wards.Should the doll be destroyed before umbrella closes you will not get refunded those expended sugar points. Because now Se7en has to realize a future in which dolls exist.
JASON VORHEES PREPARED THE GRIM TASK OF COCKBLOCKERY WHENOVERSEAS JOHN TAKES HIS PLACE ON THE TECH ROOF
A satellite turned off. A gear adjusts in the clockwork of events
Great. Now let's position Jason and Cable in such a way as to not screw Dom over in the battle, not cause the cable to be damaged, and most importantly, not fuck any thing in the space-time-continuum up.

>>12385261The reason Dom had trouble was because Jason was a tough son of a bitch. I doubt there's anything we can do to change that. Besides moving Jason might change the out come of the battle entirely. Best just to leave Jason where he is and let the battle play out as it did.
>>12385315Well, presumably, we were to move Jason so he didn't cut the cable. Which, assuming the worst, could have meant that it would somehow mess up Dom's fight and result in his death, injury, etc. But hey, it seems as if the problem's solved.
That's why cool moments like this one requires A LOADING SCREEN
>>12385348It worked because we didn't change Jason's physical position, but his spatial position. The result being Dom interrupted the wire cutting. Could Jason have cut the wire then gone after Dom? Sure, but what would Jason want more to cut a wire or to kill Dom? Obviously to kill Dom.
>>12385407Well whatever works, works.Also, you are now hearing the sound a CD-based console makes when loading a fuckton out of a CD. The CHK-IT-CHK-IT-CHK-IT sound.
>>12385407Derp I mean Jason's time-space position, not spacial.
>>12385361It's like I'm really playing a resident evil game!
A Connection is made.
CHAPTER 4" This is the President "
>>12386461We have a cure don't nuke us please!
>>12386461Are we talking with the President?If so, tell him that we have a cure. It's not perfect, and has a chance to kill the patient, but it definitely stops the zombie virus, and those that take it become immune to zombie.We've started testing, and we already have successfully cured a survivor. Oh, and not nuking us or sending in the B-52's on Arclight missions would be really helpful, sir.Perhaps we should transmit the formula?
" Dont worry, you have my assurance that won't happen- not when there is hope of this being stopped , unfortunately however, this isn't about the US. anymore - other countries are preparing to act without our consent. Korea and Russia are threatening to launch, but the UN is just about the only thing that is threatening them back.And now we are considering it too. " " Tell me, what is your situation right now ? Im sure you are aware, breaking into our channels as you are is considered an act of terrorism."
"Well, our Island is cut off from the outer world and were pretty much bunkered in with hundreds of zombies, but there are still many survivors with us. And we can save many more with our cure.""Oh, and about the hacking, we didn't have much choice, we needed to contact SOMEONE didn't we?"
>>12386599If we transmit the formula for the Cure, will the other nations back down?Our position is in danger; we're holed up in a building with a satellite uplink, but we may need to relocate soon. We realize that hacking into your communication channel was illegal, but we felt that the information, and the situation, was grave enough to accept the consequences.
>>12386683" I understand, I take full responsibility for your lockdown. Had it spread to the mainland this would have been a world wide problem. I will take any angry words you have of me but we both have our jobs to preserve humanity. Currently there are over 4 islands that are also infected- you wouldnt happen to know why the virus has spread to these places would you ? "
>>12386735No idea. We didn't even know it had spread off the island. Where are these islands? Maybe some survivors got out before the quarantine went up?
>>12386735"I did not know that the virus had spread that far. I know the incubation period is 24 hours; perhaps someone Infected got out before the lockdown went into effect?"
>>12386762" I see... it doesn't matter now. Tell me, where are your positions, if possible I would like to offer you as much assistance I can muster- In fact we are interested in inserting a ground force there ourselves but cannot establish good foothold.
Should we give away our position? I mean, on the one hand, the President's been acting rationally and intelligently, and seems to be genre-savvy enough to make the right choices.On the other hand, an extermination squad might be on the way, and they might arrest PD for hacking into the satellite feed.
>>12386844We're hold up on the October university campus, but there's an army of zombies pounding at the front gate so that may not last long. Wait, do you think you could bomb them for us? That alone would go a long way towards keeping us alive. Other wise any supplies you could drop would be nice, food and water. Oh and guns! Lots of guns!
>>12386850Right now the choices are trust them or flee into the city, I really don't see us holding out against that horde.
>>12386895Alright, give them the coordinates. Also transmit the formula for the Cure; this'll keep Russia from launching nukes at us, and they'll be able to mass-manufacture the Cure at pharmaceutical factories across the world.
>>12386913Might want to wait on giving them the cure until we've made it less lethal or make it very clear that it has a good chance of killing who ever you give it too.
>>12386948Inform them of the lethality of the Cure, and that we're still working on ways to bring that lethality down.Maybe they can devote some of the boys and girls down at Ft. Detrick (US Army Biological Weapons Division) to helping us.
>>12386990Bah, like any of them are half as smart as Dex and Ready.
>>12386999Well, of course not. But there might be a few amongst them worthy to be lab assistants.
>>12387008Ok I can buy that.
>>12387020plus a squad or 2 of Navy Seals would come in handy.
>>12387134Now soldiers showing up I am weary of. While we could certainly use their fire power, do you really think they'll let a bunch of college kids do anything except take orders? Of course that's just my paranoia speaking, hopefully it's wrong.
rolled 20, 10, 86, 59, 96 = 271I suggest a backup plan in case there is to be an order to kill other survivors.Or, we use the internet to find out what soldiers are doing to survivors.Captcha: obviously gismicko
Dexter explains that the antiVirus was cultivated from the same sample that the Z virus came from. And so nothing short of cultivating blood samples with the antivirus would produce a usable sample. " Then where is this biological sample ? " The president asks " Fungal matter " Dexter replies- "A rare one that shouldn't exist in this world - I'll tell your research team all about it if you can send them here with a-A. Army B. A trusted volunteer groupC. Other
>>12388486C. Swedish Bikini Team.
>>12388486My vote is on the trusted volunteer group. Small enough to allow independence of action, and yet with enough support and security teams to still be able to keep the hordes of zeds from overrunning the campus. The Army shouldn't come in until a sizable stock of the antiVirus has been readied; who knows how many soldiers may get bitten or infected during a clean-up operation.
>>12388486C) OtherThe A-Team, or some other elite force.Or would that count as volunteer group?
>>12388486can you give us a little more detail on what the volunteer group would be made up of.
Tell them to bring a Cabinet member or Senator, someone we would recognize, as a sign of good faith.That can be with the army.
>>12389047You want them to send an important political figure to a zombie-infested island? They'd never agree to that!captcha: cratigov leadersYeah, they'd have to be cratigov before even considering it!
>>12388795A volunteer group would be a collection of hardcore warriors irregardles of whether or not they were in the armed forces. Anon can specify other parameters LIKE; -No Americans,-Chosen by the UN-Willing to Die and forfeit their lives for the cure or the fight against the undead- Someone specific and could feasibly exist in this world.The plus side would be that you retain your iYou would still be assigned a liason that represents National interests as well as gain a modicum of support from the airforce and other branches should y o u call for them.
>>12389187If we pick this option, we should have atleast one notable Russian scientist/commando/whatever, with one of their own on the ground they might be less likely to nuke.
>>12389187Ask them to send The Expendables
>>12389213You want to send in trained actors to a combat zone ?
>>12389187How about a team of international scientists (specifically genetic engineering and chemists) who will assist in the manufacture and refinement of the Cure. Periodic visits by Blackhawk transport gunships and Chinook transport helicopters will ship completed doses of the Cure and samples out to the rest of the world, and bring supplies in. And if the Russians send in a Spetznaz team, they have to play nice. I don't want to be cleaning up the inevitable mess that they will cause in the course of completing their mission objectives.
>>12389317It worked for Kurt Russel.Or actually, just send in Kurt Russel.
Also, ask if Madagascar has closed all its ports or not.
rolled 25 = 25>>12389317I suggest Bruce Lee, and various other experienced martial artists with some military.

>>12390077I believe that Journal is not actually human but three penguins in a man suit, they take turns making the quest.
>>12390207or three men in a penguin suit?
>>12390234that would just be silly.
Guys, I know OP personally. I just want you all to know that he is a GORILLA in a TEAM ROCKET uniform.
>>12390551but that wouldn't explain how he stays up so long, the three men in a penguin suit makes more sense.
Dexter has been given a quick dosier of people who had lready volunteered as soon as hour 5 broke out. TAn Isreali guerilla fighter versed in all forms of modern warfare. Has millitary connections too.A Russian Sniper that fought through german occupation and took part in missions against their more notorious divisions. Has experienceA ninjitsu practitionerA bio engineer A navajo what served in some unsung warsA criminal genius trained by the SAS as a bomb technician - and is a bomb maker herself. Norwegian Heavy weapons enthusiaist. Medical Missionary, practiced under a retired combat surgeonA knight.
SNake Pliskin will be your representative. You're pretty sure that SOMEONE has to keep the team together.
Unfortunately, due to the tactical urgency of your current situation- You can only pick 3-5
>>12390898>SNake Pliskin will be your representativeWe need a snappy name for this team.
>>12390934Can we get the rest of the team airlifted in once the situation has been stabilized?I'm voting for the Russian Sniper, Norwegian Heavy Weapons, SAS Demo, Bio-Engineer, and IDF Commando.The first thing we need to do is to shore up the Main Gate's defenses, which the soldiers have the training and will be given the equipment to do.The Bio-Engineer can be used in the Tech Lab to culture more bio-samples for transport to the outside world for study, and to assist PD in creating more Cure.Priority innoculations go to Beatrice's suicide soldiers, who can also become new donors of antiVirus samples.
Snappy name?How about either Angels of Death or Captain Krunch and the Cereal Killers
[however you can recruit more as more days pass.]
>>12391021>>12391006Let's drop the IDF Commando for now; until we have enough antiVirus to go around (and its lethality is down to a safe percentage) we should concentrate on ranged weapons and staying out of biting range.
The indian, the medic, the ninja, and the knight.You know it to be true.
We might want to pick up the medical missionary so we have professional healing going on. That and I wouldn't mind seeing more people in nurse outfits.
>>12390877An Isreali guerilla fighter: Dude looks grizzledA ninjitsu practitioner: Gotta have a cocky assMedical Missionary: Hello Nurse!A bio engineer: Tag team with Nurse for awesome healingNorwegian Heavy: I really don't need to explain this.
>>12391067Hey Rainy wore a nurse outfit.
>>12391087Hence why I said MORE people in nurse outfits. Plus she isn't always in it, meaning we will have someone who is always in a nurse outfit. I see no downsides.
>>12391076Can only choose 4.>>12391066A good team if we're doing recon in force or doing a search-and-destroy mission, but right now we need to hold off the encroaching zombie hordes from overrunning the main gate and spilling into the campus.
Actually, if the Russian is famous, maybe we should select them. The President said Russia was considering sending nukes but if it's known a famous Russian is there to help defend survivors, public opinion may delay any Russian nuking. Assuming any of this is public I guess.
I vote for the russian and the crazy SAS bomb maker.
rolled 3 = 3>>12391166I second this, and add Ninja dude with them.
>>12391166No the bomb maker is a criminal she may not be trust worthy.
>>12391188You have a point but it could be worth it to have someone who can rig claymores and stuff to take out the zeds.
>>12391212and enjoy it.sexually
>>12390877A Russian Sniper.They're WAY less likely to nuke us with one of their own.The Bombmaker-she's fuckawesome, and we need some halfway decent explosivesThe Bio Engineer. WE. NEED. RESEARCHERS. And specialists.The Heavy. Norwegians, HO!
Also, we need someone like that SAS specialist for party balance. Her personality would work well. with what we've already got.+1 for Violin's post.
>>12391298Bomb maker is unneeded and not worthy of trust. Replace her with the medic and get the Russians surprisingly would probably nuke him for the greater good. Either Ninja or Israeli
Hey, if they're helicoptering people in, can we evac some of less combat inclined students? (provided any lived this long)

We're going to have to prepare a helipad somewhere, possibly on the roof of the Science and Engineering Building, or on the grounds somewhere.
>>12391374She is needed, though.MacReady can make stuff-we don't want to waste her valuable machines on bombs.And we can only use small arms for so long. Plus, who else is going to make stuff for the Molotov Krew?Her personality's good, and if she volunteered for this, then clearly, she IS pretty trustworthy-I mean, who would she betray us to? The Zeds? She seems pretty legit. And we need a way of dealing with hordes that isn't "Lol, chip away at them." And I for one would like to see carbine bro firing explosive crossbow bolts too, one of these days.She's another creator character-we always need more of those. And with her, we can "Alter" architecture when necessary.
>>12391476There's always the chance these people volunteered because they're hired by someone to get something. Like samples from zombies so they can find out what the virus was for their own purposes? Things like that perhaps.
Bomber, Sniper, Knight, Nurse.The IRA put the fear of god into people and gained respect through their ingenious bombs (including inventing the nailbomb I've been led to believe).Snipers pick off priority targets.Knights can hold chokepoints as you pointed out.Nurse can (potentially) cure or at least stave off infected but not yet turned. The heavy is just so....undefined as a person. Everyone else has personality at a glance. Plus 'solving the problem' so easily is anticlimactic. If something is no longer a threat, you've lost all dramatic tension.
Dexter sets the terms, " We want a small team - we want to retain our indpendence as a group. And if we get out of this alive, we might even consider sovereignity - I'm kidding. But in all seriousness Mr. President I would be grateful for your assistance in this matter- If the whole world is to survive this, nothing short of a nationwide coalition will prove our worth as the human race. In the past 24 hours- this is what I have come to realize. "
Very well... Mr. Pointman. I have just made the call, you will be given legitimate contact information in a few moments- please coordinate with your liaison through there, I must be off to convince some mad men to step down. Im sure you can understand- this has also been a greater part of my job. "
>>12392149I'm assuming that's the criminal bomber in the top left. She seems like another Rainy in some ways. Except just for explosions.
>>12392227The parallels will be hillarious.
>>12392261and potentially hot....
>>12392261So I imagine we'd be in a lot of potential trouble if Dom somehow attracted her too? That would be the cat fight of the century I bet.
>>12392216I don't think anyone on the island will criticize your actions as long as we make it out of this alive, sir.
WELL this is a good closer for Chapter 3 and a great opening for 4. Im gonna head off to bed now as its been 30 something hoursslkfdjslfirofdofjtsglad fgood night : D
