TURN 4. Activation - Police = 6, Zombies = 4
That particular zombie climbed over the window ledge, ignoring the shards of glass that cut his legs and hands, and moved to the open door opposite the window.
Patrolwoman Sally Gibson led Vampifan and Big Sil up the stairs to the second floor.
"Not much further to go," she said in her softly spoken voice.
Rookie Ryan Markowitz carefully set down his cup of coffee on the reception hall front desk and drew his .45 Calibre Kimber Custom II Pistol from his holster as he followed his vastly experienced partner.
As Detective Mitchell Brandt stepped outside, via the open office window, he noticed that someone was missing. (See, this is why he was a detective!)
"Where's Captain Marquez?" he enquired.
"Down below," Connors replied as he fired his 5.56mm Steyr AUG Assault Rifle. "The deadheads got him!"
Her colleague, SWAT Trooper Johnny Vincenzo, thought about shooting the three zombies ripping the unconscious Killer Klown to shreds, but thought better of it.
"Let the bastard suffer!" he muttered to himself.
The three zombies who had fed on the Killer Klown crossed the road to join the six other zombies still feasting on Captain Marquez.
"Oh, for Christ's sake!" Tybald said in exasperation. He used a sidekick to shatter the kneecap of the zombie, forcing it to drop to the floor. He followed up with a lethal foot stomp to the side of the zombie's head. Pieces of brain and skull stuck to the sole of his boot. The zombie ceased any further movement.
The zombies at the SW corner of the police station gathered around Captain Marquez had grown to seventeen. They all ignored the bloody corpse, whose flesh had grown too cold to attract their interest.
Abandoned by his partner, Patrolman Kenneth Tybald stood no chance against so many zombies. He was able to kill just one before he was dragged to the floor screaming in agony from so many bites.
Vampifan and Big Sil strolled across the roof in his direction.
Patrolwoman Gibson moved to the parapet overlooking the front of the police station. She drew her BA Pistol from her belt holster and fired twice at the zombies dierectly below her.
Vampifan and Big Sil reached the SW corner of the roof of the first floor and stood alongside SWAT Trooper Vincenzo.
"Let's give 'em hell" the cop of mixed American and Italian parents said fervently.
Detective Brandt and SWAT Sergeant Connors joined in.
Doubles meant the arrival of a PEF. I rolled or its Rep and placement. It was Rep:4 and it arrived in Sector 6. Although I placed it in cover behind a police car, it was in sight of SWAT Trooper Kelly. No matter where I placed it, she'd be able to spot it. So I rolled on my PEF Resolution Table and scored a 4 for a D result, meaning a False Alarm.
To his credit, Vincenzo complied without comment or complaint.
"Hostiles here!" he shouted as he saw three female zombies clustered around the back door. "Don't worry, I've got them!"
"We have to switch off that engine," he said urgently. "It's a frigging zombie magnet!"
"We already tried it, buddy" Brandt replied morosely, "That's how we lost the Captain."
"That's because he went alone," Vampifan countered, "We need to go as a group to support each other."
Brandt, Connors and Big Sil fired three more short bursts at the four standing and two prone zombies below them.
"We have a clear window of opportunity now," Connors remarked. "If we all go now, we could do it."
"Outstanding!" Vampifan said, feeling very confident about this.
Patrolwoman Gibson and SWAT Trooper Kelly refrained from firing this turn as the zombies below them were hidden from view by the roof of the front porch.
