The big news at Chez Vampifan is that I have started playing my ATZ-FFO campaign. As it is still ongoing, I thought I'd answer the questions found in the section, Who You Are in the Day One scenario. Note that this scenario can be downloaded for free from the THW website. I'll start off with a couple of photos of the new Team Vampifan just to show you how they have changed from the old ATZ-BDTZ campaign.
Angie has had a dagger in a sheath added to her lower right leg. It, and the two straps holding it place, were made out of Green Stuff.
Big Sill used to be a knife fighter in the BDTZ campaign. Not anymore. Instead he has acquired the Rage Attribute and I gave him a machete for his melee weapon. The machete, that can be seen on the front left of his belt was also made out of Green Stuff.
Gap has had his M16 Assault Rifle glued in place. It was previously stuck on with a blob of Blu-Tac. I also added a rifle strap made out of Green Stuff to hold it in place.
So, let's take a closer look at Vampifan. He is single and does not have any children. He is 35 years old.
Vampifan works as the manager and graphic designer of a computer games company called Vampisoft. (I have my brother to thank for coming up with that name). Whilst his job is primarily office-based and sedentary, he does get out and about when he can and he does regular exercise. Unfortunately, much of the good he does by exercising is negated by his unhealthy diet.
Whilst Vampifan has never served in the military, he does have experience with guns. He is a member of the Springvale Gun Club, which he attends once per week. He is also a student of kendo, although his sword skills are not as well honed as his gun skills.
Home for Vampifan is a semi-detached house in Springvale, a suburb of Mayhem City, U.S.A. His next door neighbours are Niall "Big Sil" Sillito and his wife Angelina "Angie" Johannson. It is through them that he became acquainted with Robert "Gap" Thirlby, who is also a resident of Springvale. The four of them regularly meet and socialise.
Regarding resources, Vampifan keeps a well stacked larder, with enough food to count as 3 Food Items. He also owns a first aid kit and medicine, equivalent to 1 Item of Medical Supplies. If need be, Vampifan could barricade the ground floor of his home with materials from his back garden. He does not own a generator, so will be stuck if/when the power goes off.
The weapons he owns are a katana (kept in his office at Vampisoft), and a .45 Heckler and Koch USP Big Ass Pistol, which he keeps at home. He has a good supply of ammo for his pistol.
Vampifan drives a black pick-up truck. On Day One it is not fully gassed, with its tank holding 2 of its 5 fuel units. He'll need to fill her up if he plans on making any long journeys. He does have a jerry can, holding 5 Fuel Units, back home, but that is for emergency use only. I guess a zombie apocalypse would class as an emergency!
Vampifan's Luxury Items would be his laptop computer, cash, a crate of beer, a box of wine and of course, an assortment of toiletries. His collection of books, CDs, DVDs, games, miniature figures and models would also be classed as Luxury Items, but are likely to be left behind if Vampifan has to leave home in a hurry.
On Day One of the Outbreak, Vampifan is on his lunch break, dining at a local restaurant. His first task will be to return to his workplace
You can see how he gets on when I post my first FFO batrep next time.
