"This is not good!" he snarled as he opened fire with his AA-12 Automatic Shotgun. The burst of semi-automatic fire took out all three Walkers as their heads were reduced to bloody pulps. (These kills advanced Raoul to the yellow level and he gained the +1 Action Skill.) The Abomination shielded the two Runners with its huge over-sized body. Raoul fired a second burst at the Abomination and Stared in disbelief as they caused no harm whatsoever.
"Oh shit!" he exclaimed, "We are so screwed!"
(Obviously I knew his Automatic Shotgun would do no damage to the Abomination but Raoul didn't know that and had to find out the hard way. His Automatic Shotgun did 2 Wounds per shot but a weapon doing 3 or more Wounds was required to kill an Abomination.)
"Go for it," Raoul urged.
Derek aimed his unique weapon known as Pa's Pistol at the head of the Abomination and fired just as the creature strode towards him. At point blank range he did not miss and the Abomination's head exploded in a welter of gore of flames.
"Woohoo!" Derek exclaimed.
"Way to go, Derek," Raoul said excitedly.
(Pa's Pistol is one of the very few weapons in the game that can kill an Abomination. It inflicts 3 points of damage per shot. Although it can only fire once per Action and has a lowly range of 0-1, it is still a formidable weapon. Derek was very lucky to have found it so early in the game. Naturally, this kill advanced him to the yellow level and he too, gained a fourth Action per Turn.)
He fired three more times at the two Runners but only managed to kill one of them - a Toxic Runner.
The remaining Runner proved to be very elusive to hit. Neema's .44 Magnum fired three times, missing twice before striking the Zombie in the forehead, killing him instantly.
He stood in the doorway and fired his AA-12 a total of twelve times. Exactly half of his shots were misses or glancing hits but the other six were devastatingly effective and he killed five Walkers and a Fatty.
(Apologies for the out of focus photo. I usually check each shot before taking the next one but in this case I must have forgot. These six new kills advanced Raoul to the orange level and he choose the Medic skill. He could now heal one wound on any Survivor in the same Zone as him, including himself, once per Turn.)
"I'll get these two," Derek said, "there are far more targets for your Shotgun back there."
Derek was clearly on a roll. He fired Pa's Pistol twice and scored fatal head shots on the two newly arrived Runners.
"I've found someone! Don't be afraid. We're here to help. I'm Neema Freeman. Who are you?"
An extremely attractive young woman with long red hair and wearing a skintight shiny black catsuit stared at her with obvious relief.
"Oh, my God!" she gushed with obvious relief. "Thank God you're here. I heard gunfire outside and hoped you wouldn't pass by. I'm Elsa. Elsa Bryce-Howard."
(When Neema opened the door I had to draw a card from the Zombie deck to see which Zombie or Zombies spawned in the room. The card I drew stated that all Runners gained an extra Turn. This was very lucky for me as Derek had just killed the last three Runners on the board. Ha, ha, ha!)
Elsa's luck was in. Hidden amongst the rubble and debris she found a Chainsaw. Better still, it had a full tank of gas.
"That's better!" she smiled. "Now, let's get outta here!"
"Go," Neema ordered. "I have two male friends outside. They'll be glad to see you."
Elsa nodded ingratitude and ran out of the building, blinking at the sudden sunlight. She ran past Derek, smiling at him, before coming to a stop alongside Raoul.
Introductions were quickly made. They had to be quick because suddenly they were surrounded by Zombies.
To be concluded.
