"A can of gasoline," Doug replied as he brandished the jerrycan aloft. "I figure we could make another Molotov if we found some more empty bottles."
"No problem, dude," Josh announced as he pulled out the glass bottle he had found earlier. "Look what I've got."
"Well, we're sorted now," Doug said, grinning happily. A Molotov was an extremely useful weapon to have in their arsenal. "We just have to decide who gets it."
"Can I, please?" Josh pleaded. "I'll keep it safe, I promise."
"Hey, why not?" Doug was feeling in a generous mood. He handed the jerrycan over to the teen and watched him pour the liquid into the empty bottle and stuff a handkerchief in the top.
"No worries," Doug replied, "I've got her."
Two short bursts from his 9mm Uzi sub-machine guns obliterated the Walker's face and she crumpled to the ground where she lay still.
|This new kill took Doug into the Orange Level. He was the first to reach it. Life would get a lot harder now for the heroes with more zombies than ever arriving every Turn. Doug gained the +1 Free Combat Action Skill.|
|Ned also advances to Orange Level and just like Doug, gains the +1 Free Combat Action Skill.|
PHIL. Once again, Phil joined the bearded drifter to help thin the zombie threat. His first rifle shot was also a miss but he quickly corrected his mistake and his second shot was bang on target and killed a male teenage Walker.
|All Fatties got an extra Turn during this Spawning Phase.|
"Hmm, Wanda seems to like chainsaws," she mused. "Let's see how it compares to my katana."
She sheathed her katana and took the chainsaw. It felt strange in her hand as she carried it outside.
"How come I missed that?" Josh wondered aloud. "I'm going back in there."
He walked back into general store and whilst he failed to find any more weapons, he did find plenty of canned food. He stuffed as many of them as he could in his pockets before stepping back outside.
"Successful?" Amy enquired.
"Sort of," Josh admitted. "I stocked up on food."
"Food's good," Amy acknowledged. "Gotta have food."
"I can certainly try," Phil replied.
Ned's shooting was astonishingly accurate. He killed all four Walkers in quick succession.
"They're yours, Josh," she said as she rejoined him at the T-junction.
"Goddammit!" he screamed in frustration. "What is wrong with me?"
"Don't fret it," Phil said consolingly. "These things happen."
"This is getting too easy," she opined as she skated away from the crossroad.
|A wide angle photo just to remind you where everyone is on the board.|
"I'm reloading," she called out. "Josh, can you take over?"
Amy quickly retreated before the remaining two Walkers could attack her.
"Thanks, Josh" Amy responded. "Nice kills."
Ned's confidence had taken a battering with those four misses in a row. But he knew Phil was right. He had to keep on trying. He gently squeezed the trigger of his sniper's rifle and breathed a huge sigh of relief as he watched a Walker fall dead from his shot.
Ned's heart fell as he missed his second shot. And his third shot.
"Please, not again," he moaned. Either by luck or grim determination his fourth shot found the mark and hit a Walker right between the eyes.
"I hope my missing isn't contagious," Ned joked.
"Nah, it was just a blip," Phil answered full of confidence. His second shot proved it was just a blip. A female Walker measured her length on the ground as she dropped down dead.
"I need a shower," she moaned as she skated back to the safety of the general store.
Amy was more than a little apprehensive about using the chainsaw as a weapon but at the same time she was curious to know how effective it was. If it was no good she'd drop it and carry on using her katana. Her first three swings of the chainsaw wounded the two Runners but failed to kill them. But she was a quick learner and with a vicious sweep she decapitated both Runners.
"Alright!" she shouted in glee. "We're gonna have some fun, baby!"
|Killing the 2 Runners advanced Amy to the Orange Level. She chose the +1 Free Combat Action as her new Skill.|
"Burn in Hell, you fat bastard!" he jeered as he shot the obese zombie in the upper chest and neck. The Fatty writhed in agony as it fell to the ground with its upper body and head wreathed in flames.
|Josh advances to Orange Level and gains the 1 Re-roll per Turn Skill.|
"I'll pass, if you don't mind," Ned replied wearily.
"Okey dokey," Phil said, not in the least bit put off. He was on the top of his game and he achieved fatal head shots on both Runners.
|Phil advances to Orange Level. He gains the +1 to Dice Roll: Ranged Skill, making it even easier for him to shoot zombies.|
"Don't get too smug," the bearded drifter cautioned.
|Wanda was the last of the six Survivors to reach Orange Level. She chose the +1 to Dice Roll: Melee Skill.|
She slowly skated back to the front of the general store with mixed emotions - happy to have killed four more zombies but extremely unhappy at her bloodied appearance.
