Wip

In sewers below Shanghai tunnel
Harvs body lies at their feet
Team grabs all his gear and finds the recently dead bodies of the military guys nearby. Grab their stuff and grapple up through gaping hole in ceiling.
Sam up first and into storage room of bar. Hole spans between bar and storage room. He moves and opens door. Flashes light into room and sees a handful of shamblers. Sound from under table to his right and a tentacle slaps across his face. He calls for Guillermo for help.

Guillermo and w00t follow and the three easily defeat a couple of chokers and half dozen shamblers. Successful scavenging. W00t hunkers down to craft some exosives on the pool table. Guillermo searches upstairs and street level bar. Outside the street is filled with shamblers. Contact is made with the watcher Scott across the street who joins the group after being informed that his team was killed in the carnage below the bar.

Without Harv pushing the group, they settle into the office on the second floor and spend the rest oft eh day healing and crafting. W00t makes a booster for the walky talkie and Sam tries to reach Julie.

After some time, father Jose answers and informs the group that the student center was attacked and most oft eh students including Julie were taken or killed. He managed to escape and is hiding in the UofP dorms with a few other survivors. Sam is distraught and starts drinking. Eventually he takes his drinker aggression to the street and rampages through countless shamblers wailing.

Morning comes (figure out date).

Back into tunnels below bar. Get a little lost. F nd passage leading down and waterfall. Turn back. F nd grate leading to river, turn back. Find large room with water I middle. Another guarded entry point with three crocodiles and two chokers. Scott is killed and death rolled before team clears room.

Harv sees figures peering out from behind a window barricade in St Marys Student Center. He knocks and tells the onlookers that the team means no harm and only seeks information and safety for a moment. They are immediately allowed in and meet a bunch of scared university students and unique looking priest.

Father Jose is a traveling priest visiting this school from Central America. He is wearing archaic leather armor and wields a whip and a ornate and heavy oaken cross.

Two students, Mike and Tommy, start asking if they’re light beacon in the bell tower was what brought the team. They speak of witnessing activity around the basketball arena involving a semi and some motorcycles over the past nights and as recently as twenty minutes ago.

Team gears up, heals, and heads to the arena. They sneak up to see an idling semi surrounded by overturned cars with a Slender on guard atop the truck. Successful ambush ensues and all enemies are dispatched. Some of the shamblers are recognizable as civilians from Deucetown. Team realizes the horrible truth that their town was attacked while they were gone.

Truck is empty with trails of blood leading into the arena. Hear screaming from inside arena once truck is turned off and think it might be Julie. Hold Sam back from just running in.

@WIP
The two bikers from earlier are working on operating tables set in the center of the court.
One stands over a restrained Julie chanting and doing something. She screams. Some kind of black fog lashes out from below the operating table.
Giant unfinished beast is on one table and Karen (Eye witness) lies upon the other.
Harv starts sniping bikers, large daemon hound heads at group. Stairs work as perfect bottleneck. Daemon hound deals tons of damage to Sam and Chance. W00t hurls explosives and acids at enemies and inflicts serious injuries to all. Harv takes off to other side to head off escaping biker. Chance drops. Sam and Padre run. Chance eaten.

Look to the all mighty

Spent the night on the roof of the Expo Center waiting for the ‘runners’. W00t uses found chem lab to craft some minor acids and explosives. While up there, team hears motorcycles, assumed to be the same that murdered Larry to the south as well as the sounds of a semi. Engine sounds are pretty constant every hour or so.

Friday, August 30, 2013, 7:00AM

Expo center itself is still quiet, so team looks to full clear all halls. Find some straggler shamblers in Halls D & E and quickly dispatch them. Gas leak in kitchen is noticed (W00t remembers to extinguish flamethrower’s pilot light!) and aired out. Find ample amounts of food and supplies.

10:30AM

Bury a weeks worth of rations on tip of Government Island, if need arises, then head back to Deucetown. Sam, Chance, and Julie spend rest of day helping to calm citizens and rest up. W00t starts crafting a massive explosive and Harv, against the teams resistance, takes a solo trip for ammo to the airport.

1:00PM

PDX International Airport is quiet. Some shamblers move about the tarmac and terminal, but nothing the quick and stealthy shyster can’t deal with. Of most note is the amount of damage and bodies in the main terminal. It appears something large made its way through all the riot police and civilians alike. The number of zombies in this area is large enough that Harv quickly turns back to inform his friends.

6:00PM

The team takes a quick trip back to roof of expo center at dusk to again witness a light being flashed in the Univ of Portland bell tower. Back to town with plans of checking university in the morning.

Saturday, September 1, 2013, 8:00AM

Takes W00t a few more hours to complete his masterpiece.

2:00PM

Looking for motorcycles and semi. Travel along Columbia river and head south into St Johns. Not much to see other than death and destruction. Bodies line the streets and shamblers prevail. Most shops appear to have been looted at some point in the past week. Team moves quickly through streets avoiding confrontation. Plan is to cross St Johns bridge and watch the bell tower from close across the Willamette. While crossing bridge, a semi truck is noticed pull up right to the rivers edge and a motorcycle idles next to it with its rider surveying. Both parties see each other, biker appears to make a radio call, then speeds off into city streets.

Team turns and tries to follow, but quickly lose track of faster more mobile cycle. Check out semi left at rivers edge. Something large was transported in it. Inside of trailer is slashed and dented. Some body parts and tracks of blood can be seen leading out of trailer and dissapear at mouth of river.

Back to plan and cross river. Find tall industrial building and wait for dusk.

5:00PM

Radios go crazy but hard to pick out what is being said. Harv hears Julie’s voice and words, “Attack!”, and “Zombies!”. He lies to group about understanding anything and talks everyone into staying atop silo to watch the university. Radios go quiet after about 15 minutes.

8:00PM

Two people are seen at top of belltower and appear to be shining a flashlight. Team decides to investigate. Head by foot over rail bridge and onto school grounds. Very dark out, especially under the large trees on campus mall. Team sticks to edge of buildings and approached tower. Hears banging and telltale signs of zombies ahead. Banging sounds to be coming from inside St Marys community center and moves to another wall. Zombies follow sounds and sees team. Fight ensues.

Party splits and W00t nearly burns down the small radio station building he took refuge in.

The Convention (part 2)

Thursday, August 29, 2013, 11:00AM

Cage along wall with some zombies trying to get in. Other undead eating corpses.
They see light and head towards Harv. Harv runs bak into main hall and warns others of impeding attack. Team sets up a bottle neck at barricade and starts the slaughter. Wave of zombies hit barricade and manage to topple it catching Chance below. Shitshow ensues. Chance falls unconscious and is bit. Team kills rest of zombies and gets to Chance in time. Seems he fended off whatever causes the infection.

Heavily search entire hall. Find strange book with notes in unknown language appearing to depict alterations done to bodies. Chemical workshop with oil substance. Tattooing equipment and a morse code machine. W00t tries to send message in morse code. Short time later a message comes through and Chance knows mores. Says:
“Outposts 2,3,5,7, and 9 success. Stop.
Deal with Columbia threat by any means necessary. Stop.
Runners on schedule. Stop.”

2:00PM

More searching. Hear motorcycles outside and then gun shots. Sounds like automatic gunfire followed by rifle shots. Team fears for Larry in the boat and starts breaking down exterior barricade. When they get outside, two bikes careen off and smoke can be seen from docks. Run over and swim to boat only to find Larry riddled with bullets. Team gets wary, jury-rigs the boat and gets back to deucetown. Drops off gear and equipment, then get anxy about runner comment in morse code. Head back to expo center in hopes of catching runners and searching more.

4:00PM

Adjacent hall still filled with convention booths. Find tons of stuff through the evening. Head to roof for safety and set up camp. Notice light being shone in various directions in distance and think it’s the belltower at Univ of Portland.

More than meets the eye

Thursday, August 29, 2013. 7:00AM

Pirate attack was thwarted and all citizens look to access the damage to Deucetown. Pirate leader and thug are still unconscious. They’re brought up to the second floor of city hall tied up to the bannister with Tyler on watch.

Sam and Julie check in with the citizens and try to raise morale. Chance gathers up the logs that struck the town with Moe’s boat and starts creating a barrier to protect from like attacks. W00t heads back to his workroom and starts upgrading his flamethrower and Harv collects a baton and makes his way up to the prisoners.

The thug wakes up first and tells Harv everything. Ends up the raiders were holed up in a row home just south of Hayden Island and thought the floating town would make an easy target for rations and women.

The captain then wakes up and is much harder to deal with than the thug Bob, but eventually their stories line up. Much argument ensues about what to do with the obviously unfriendly leader.

@WIP
Team decides to go check out the row home where two more guards are.
Find the door bashed in, go around back sending Bob in to climb in back window and check it out.
Hear dog barking.
Bob says no one is around. Some blood in house. He;s sent to fill a bag with rations.
More dog barking and a man yelling.
Bob comes out and team moves to corner of alley to see what’s going on.


See man struggling on ground with a large dog tearing at his leg. Standing above the man is a slender tall and pale-skin creature. Humanoid, but the appendages look unnaturally a bit longer and are black as ink. It’s eyes are the most jarring with them looking almost like spikes were driven through.

A group of zombies stand at the ready, but are surprisingly not rushing at the prone man. The creature strikes the man repeatedly on the ground as the group sneaks up. Sam, Julie, and Chance double-back to an adjacent alley to get the drop on the group.

Yo ho ho

Wednesday, August 28, 2013. 4:00PM

Takes two trips to get all the loot from Home Depot back to Deucetown. Rest of the day is spent organizing the equipment and setting up basic accommodations for the 40 inhabitants. W00t gets his deluxe mechanical shop up and crafts a couple explosives before dusk.

10:30PM

As night settles in, a lookout calls attention to some boats approaching from the point of Hayden Island. 3 speed boats are coming in fast, split around the floating town, and speed away upriver. Sam catches the silhouette of a rifleman in one of the spotlights as the boat passes.

The team groups up, gets organized, and attempts to track the boats, but to no avail. A couple hours later they get back to town and try to get some rest.

Thursday, August 29, 2013. 6:30AM

Three speedboats approach with the sunrise to their backs. Everyone heads out onto the docks to see what’s going on. Harv makes out men ducking and driving the boats, the glint of possibly a scope, and something being pulled behind the boats. A shot rings out a baseball bat wielding teen drops dead in front of everyone. The boats speed up, abruptly turn, and cut the logs free.

The boats then pull around the side and attempt look board the town. Men wielding nets and batons prepare to attack. Meanwhile, Harv hops onto Larry’s boat, directs him to back up and then leaps onto one of the speedboats.

Chance hops onto Moe’s boat, directs hime to back up and jumps onto the back of the boarding party on the opposite side of the town. He first attacks the boats engine and ensures that it’d be going no where soon, and then he moves up to attack the man wielding the sniper rifle. Chance takes on the boss as Sam works his way through the net-wielders to the same boat.

Harv prevents men from boarding on the other side of town, but starts getting overwhelmed by goons surrounding him on he boat. Logs slam into the entire east-side of the town and people topple from the force.

The third boat pulls around to the back of the town to W00t’s workroom and is greeted one of W00t’s homemade sode can grenades. W00t finishes off a guy who leapt onto the dock with his chainsaw and looks to see what other disruption he can cause. He notices Harv slump to the floor of a now escaping boat as the riflemen above picks off the driver. The man’s body falls onto the throttle and sends the boat right into the destruction in front of W00t.

Most of the pirates see that they’re plan has failed at this point and start diving into the river to escape. Sam makes his way to Harv and quite miraculously manages to wake him up as Chance takes to the river with Moe chasing down the fleers.

Driving over one peon, Chance yells for the leader to surrender and pulls along side of him. He spats at the thought, but sees he has no one out and finally gives up only to pull Chance into the river at his first chance. Chance, Moe, and the pirate leader struggle, but without weapons and outnumbered, Chance can’t be held at bay for long.

They make it back to the town, tie up a couple of survivors, including the captain and start accessing the damage that was done.

Outlet shopping

Wednesday, August 28, 2013. 8:00AM

The team drives around Sam’s neighborhood neighborhood looking for bicycles. A handful of houses are obviously boarded up and still inhabited, but the keeps their bike searches to open garages and abandoned homes. A few other cars scream by on the main road towards the shopping center. One one street, a couple of teenagers run between houses with bags on obviously trying to move quickly and avoid trouble. drive after them. Manage to not scare them and find out their heading to the shopping center for food and supplies. Corey is tall and lanky, but has shows some confidence. Blake is smaller and frailer; he seems reserved and quite afraid. They get the guys into the pickup and head back to boat to drop off the near catatonic young girl and, after some talk, Blake.

8:30AM Drive to Jantzen Beach Shopping Center. Hundreds of people are moving about the parking lots between cars and shopping carts. Pull a big loop around the entire complex and see a few small skirmishes over supplies and fewer infected, with the latter being quickly routed by the mobs. Of note are three guys in full football gear sprinting across the lots from Home Depot towards Sports Authority. Team doubles back to the sports super-center and scopes out the loading bays. All is quiet. W00t picks the lock on the service entrance and Harv leads the way with his flashlight. A gunshot rings out from the store and some yelling is heard. Everyone moves quietly through the dark loading bay and checks the adjoining bathroom and managers office. Sam finds a safe in the office and calls for W00t to check it out. A man is heard yelling from in the store, “I know you’re over there you fucker. These are mine. Get away!”. Harv moves to the other side of the bay and stealthily looks out the door. An old man is poised with a rifle aimed at the other door nearest Sam. Harv radios to the others to get ready and he’ll create a diversion.

W00t opens the safe and finds a deposit bag full of cash. He gives it to Corey and rejoins the others in the dark loading area awaiting Harv’s diversion. Harv barrels out into the store screaming, “Run, run! There’re zombies in here!!!”. He nearly collides with a football player sneaking through the aisle in front of him and he peels off down the adjacent aisle.

Sam then runs through the other door, sees another football player wielding a bat, and turns

So... hungry

Tuesday, August 27, 2013. 6:30AM

After watching the pandaemonium overtake Portland-proper from the relative safety of the Willamette River, the players make it through an uncomfortable night packed like sardines aboard their fishing vessel. At dawn they head north to the dockside restaurant Who Song & Larry’s in Vancouver, Washington with hopes of a quick grab-and-go mission for rations and supplies.

The restaurant’s patio seems quiet enough, but a previous struggle is obvious in the handful of bodies and broken plates strewn about the dock. On closer inspection, they see a few infected individuals standing in some kind of stasis inside. Sam leads the crew onto the dock and stealthily makes his way to the patio doors and inside. Facedown on one of the banquet tables lies one of the largest men Sam has ever seen. He looks to be almost 7ft tall and weighs well over 300lbs.

Trying to move silently by the leviathan, Sam missteps and a floorboard creaks. The body twitches and starts to rise and the nearby infected behind the bar immediately turns and shambles towards the medic. Without hesitation, Chance raises his shotgun and blows the incomings head clean off to protect Sam, but in doing so draws the attention of the restaurant’s ill-wanted patrons.

@WIP …W00t flamethrowers. Fat guy nearly burns down the building. Shots bring infected from dockside restaurant next door who manage to board the farthest ship and threaten the civilians onboard. Chance gets swarmed and nearly drops. Harv double-times it to the kitchen and into the walk-in only to be hit in the head by a pimply teen wielding a tomato can. He has the kid fill his bag with cans. W00t scavenges the kitchen and finds a fire extinguisher, some medkits, and corrosive dishwater detergent. All make a hasty retreat to the docks as more infected come towards the gunfire through from the parking lot. Back to the boats and escape
