127 Humans. 215 Zombies. The tables have turned.
The night began with low morale. None of us were looking forward to the mission. We were tasked with the impossible: Infiltrate several “research labs” in a specific order and recover keycards full of important data from zombified scientists. Turner. Weston. Tannex and O-House simultaneously. And finally…Boundary.
Amazingly we managed to survive Turner House with very few casualties. With both key cards acquired, we made our way to the next lab: Weston. Then Tannex and O-House simultaneously. They were all miraculously cleared quickly and with little casualties. But then came Boundary. The final lab was the hardest of them all.
We acquired the second Hunter vest in O-House and the second Engineer in Tannex…
The Hunter wears a vest with an orange flag velcro’d to his back. He can only be killed if a zombie removes the flag.
The Engineer can place a “barrier” on the ground anywhere he pleases. Zombies may not cross the barrier, or tag anyone on the other side of the barrier. Humans may cross the barrier.
…and used both of them to our advantage. A few brave human souls stepped inside a ring made of both Engineers’ barriers and they set out to find the last key cards. The rest of the Resistance tried to enter from the other side, leaving only a handful hanging back to cover the escape routes. Everyone fought valiantly, but overall it was a slaughter.
By some chance, Steven and I both managed to survive the night. We, along with the other battered survivors, mourn our fallen comrades and prepare ourselves to meet them on the field of battle tomorrow night.
Friends, thank you for your sacrifice. We salute you.
