(So, you first asked us and then decided that because we did not specify, we should not have the chance to answer.
You are a horrible GM and I love you for it.)
Every AMERICAN is given a medical license! As our entire team are honorary AMERICANS, that means we have a whole group of fully licensed and qualified surgeons! We can amputate!
Don't worry everyone, Garry won't die! And the reason is, I'm the PRESIDENT OF THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!
(... How can you get infected from CONTUSIONS? Aren't those basically just bruises?
Sheesh, just how easily does it spread...? You may have made the disease a bit too potent, Pips.
Either way, poor Garry~ This won't end well, will it?)
So, uh, guess what? GM INCOMPETENCE STRIKES AGAIN!
The power of the AMERICAN PRESIDENCY is so great that it can rewrite reality!
Who am I!? I'm the PRESIDENT! I always make the impossible possible, and I'm going to keep on doing so!
Vote for Snark during the 2016 elections, y'all! This is a president who will always keep his promises!
(Like hell we'll subject Garry to that.)
I TOLD YOU TO TAKE COVER, BUT DID YOU LISTEN TO ME!?!?!?
Maybe it's Ana's computer, not the game, that favors gay robots and bishies.
CHEATER! HAX! REPORT! REPORT HAX0R!
(Well, wasn't this something to wake up to.)
(I swear I nearly had a minor conniption at 'GM INCOMPETENCE STRIKES AGAIN!'. So basically for once the game actually worked for us? Excellent. Can we go assault the bank then? I'd like at least twice, given the size, but if that's too time-consuming for everyone I don't mind just once.)
I assume you want to search the police station fully? And do you have a preference as to where you want to assault the bank from? Right now your two best options are probably the factory west of the bank or the house below the hospital.
((You know, given how we're pretty well stocked with supplies, should we just go back to the pick up point and barricade and trap the place up in preparation for the inevitable mob attack?))
(Yeah, please set Silverbolt to search for weapons and ammo, and my preference would be the factory, personally.)
(But a warehouse isn't the best place of defense. Not to mention, the chopper will attract zombies as it comes.)
(Not to mention the fact that when if the mob shows up at the warehouse and you burn it to the ground, there'd be no evac location to go to.)
Just a reminder that you need at least six cans of gasoline for the burning option to show up.
At least I think it's six. Maybe somebody should confirm that for me <.< >.>
((Vide, start a new game!))
(Do we know where some other cans are? Because I like the thought of having that as a failsafe.)
(Give me twenty minutes.)
Hang on, I'll check.
Nah, it's okay, Vide. I checked the Screwfly Forums and it's six cans minimum.
(I started up a new game anyways and, well, Starscream and Knock Out got drunk together while I was searching for gas cans. Okay.)
((Incidently, while we're bathing in fond memories, why isn't Kaneda's entire team believing she'll die on her first turn in the pool? >:3
Sorry Pearse, you'll end up Dead Meat thanks to your incompetent puppeteer.))
I just noticed I'm not in the betting pool post way back. I voted for Kaneda dying the first turn, because I'm a cynical bitch.
ETA: Ninja'd by DK.
((Naturally. After all, next round I play I shall be Époninja. The puns will only grow worse with time.))
( I did the same!
...I'm probably not a good teammate.)
(You guys have no idea how hard it is to kill someone on the first turn. I have managed it all of once.
Now I have to play a Dead Meat run where EVERYONE has all zeroes.)
I don't know whether I should laugh or cry.
((BEST AVATAR EVER.
I should fix Éponine's picture, really. It's a bit too small and if we're going with a Sueponine, maybe I should get one from TAC where she looks a little less... wretched.))
There are currently three cans of gas in the police station. Would you like me to bring them with me when I breach the factory?
(I would like them, yes. Any help against the mob is good help. If it looks like that's impossible, I'm wondering if we shouldn't switch to the bar for the built in burn-and-run ability.
Now watch this be the only run I'm ever in where the mob never appears.)
((Portrait fixed. She now looks sufficiently livid to have dealt with Marius' LEGENDARY denseness for a length of time. I mostly mention this because the upload captcha was 'Trust me'.
I think this bodes very well, don't you?))
It's not impossible, but it might be better to save the space for the extra ammo and weapons. Don't mind either way though. I'm fine with switching to the bar for our base if the rest are down for it.
Not Sure If Want
(That's fine with me.)
(Yeah, that seems like a much better idea. The extra room would come in handy, definitely.)
(I vote against it - you not only have no control over what weapons and goods you take, but you also cannot choose which building to flee to. I don't like the idea of running into the library unarmed.)
(I don't like it much either- but judging off how my games go I'm not sure even a fully-secured bank [which I really doubt we have enough time to pull off] offers enough defense against the mob. Unless I'm wrong and the RNG gods just completely hate me?
Also, are we sure it's six cans? Because the mob just showed up at the hospital in my game, I only have five cans, and they're giving me the option to burn and run... The first time I ever get it and I can't even take it because THE HOSPITAL IS MY EVAC POINT.)
((I love how it's a surefire way to test mob modifiers for Vide to start a game. ZD is cruel.))
