Quit your whining! How can you call yourself a man when a mere broken arm is all it takes to slow you down!?
(on a related note, will Mary's painkillers eventually wear off?)
It's worthless on the consequences but THAT sounds promising.
If you want anything from me you'll have to beat me in a duel.
Just to be clear on this turn. I will use treatment now. A open cut is a weak point in my defense. I can't have that while I'd examine corpses.
I doubt the zombies are going to mind if you take one of their wounds.
What do you mean by take one of their wounds?
Nope! (Unless you're using it to treat a fever, in which case, yes, it'll eventually wear off.)
(Those are some badass painkillers)
I'd give a demonstration, but that would result in... undesirable consequences.
Andrew, Snark, let's breach the store. Vide and the crazy guy should have set up home by now!
I agree but suggest that I remain behind to create a distraction at the house and then move to the store. That way we'll draw some of the zombies away from our new setup. Since I'm the only person not injured it should be me doing the heroics.
Would you like to "make a ruckus" or "make a bonfire"? The former will attract zombies that are near the house, the latter will attract all the zombies in the town.
Everybody's coming to play with us already... Remember how you entered, Andrew?
I agree with any plan that uses anyone but me as a sacrificial lamb! Off I go to breach our new hideout!
Won't the zombies pass by the store and maybe get drawn in if Ozzo or the others make too much noise there? I'd say just make a ruckus.
Are you all right, Andrew? I'm Mary.
I'm going to miss our noise-maker... But it will keep them away from us, right?
Okay, just to confirm everybody's actions:
CSL wants Andrew to make a ruckus and then breach the store.
Snark wants Snark to breach the store and then treat injuries if medical supplies are found.
Ozzo wants Mary to breach the store and then search the store.
Tionivo wants Oscar to treat Oscar's wounds and then clean corpses(?).
Vide wants Vide to search for medical supplies.
Let me know if I've missed anything.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR PLAYERS
Keeping track of everybody's actions has been a bit confusing for me, so here's an additional rule. Whenever you want to propose or change an action for your character, please bold them. Furthermore, if you're changing your orders, please note what you're changing your actions from. I will ignore any orders or change in orders that are not bolded.
(how long do distractions last? Maybe we could use it as an opportunity to breach a nearby building while the zombies are distracted)
I meant clean up the place by getting rid of the corpses.
(Ana, looks good to me. Not to confuse you, but after I arrive at the store, I'd like to search the store.
EDIT: Tionivo, I assume you mean in the store? No point in doing it in the house.)
They last a decent amount of time, but I'm not really sure about a specific duration because the manual doesn't say and I don't use distractions all that often. Making a ruckus might have an effect for several hours, while a bonfire might last for an entire day or more? Something like that. Generally, the bigger the distraction the longer it lasts and the more zombies it'll attract. Also remember that just because you're making a distraction in a building, doesn't necessarily mean that its immediate neighbours will be always be completely clear. If you make a bonfire, for instance, you can assume that the houses near the bonfire building will get swarmed by zombies too.
(Yes, the store)
I have no idea what went down with the playing cards, because I don't think I marked it for trashing, but nevertheless that's a good example of what trashing an item looks like. Usually you'll get barricades and or scraps (for modifying items and making traps) out of it, but seriously, what can you do with a pack of children's card games? Absolutely nothing!
Another example of how hate-pairs can completely ruin your life!
Just look at those relationships! This is terrible!
You'll also notice that those people who are prejudiced against each other started hating each other really fast. This is because prejudices increase the magnitude of a negative relationship effect. Racists, the bunch of you.
By the way, Andrew has +1 Sharper because he started playing solitaire all by himself. Pssh, what a loner. (And yet he has the best relationships out of everybody!)
Our supplies and status. [T] means that an injury is treated. We also have 16 ingredients, 1 small meal, and 27 snacks. Your move, peeps. For some reason, apparently Mary can get treated, so I recommend that Snark continue to treat her. I usually patch up any broken limbs I have ASAP (which is quite rare because I always make sure my survivors love each other so they don't go about breaking each other's arms over some furniture), so I've never actually seen this happening before, but I'm guessing that her pain meds are about to run out and Snark needs to hold her down and shove some pills down her throat. SO YEAH, I LIED. SORRY ABOUT THAT.
Or you could just have Mary treat herself. Shouldn't be too hard to eat some pills by herself, eh?
(Ana, is the only way to obtain items from locations by breaching and then searching?)
Yup! Unless a location is already searched, then you can just breach it and get/use whatever you want.
I would have thought the fire axe counted as a weapon?
Speaking of, um, hell. Can I search the store for tools? I really want a hammer or something so I can make a barricade.
Edit: Disregard this! New orders further down.
We searched almost everything and we still didn't find a clue!
Do we have more candy? I'll treat myself to more candy. It makes me feel better!
Watching trainwrecks never gets old! Someone start another rumour...
Alright, I'll get to treating Mary.
Might I suggest Vide go search a nearby building? We need to limit our time spent under the same roof lest wardrobes start flying.
Also, we really should consider making preparations for a feast soon before we just hate each other to death.
And it's not even twelve hours in yet! :D
You know what? This is a better idea.
I want to go investigate the bank nearby. That'd make a nice fortress if it's not totally overrun.
It CAN be used as a weapon; in fact, it has really good combat stats too.
Compare that to the handgun:
Or the baseball bat:
It's just that the primary use of the fire axe is as a demolition tool.
And yes, you can. :D It might be more efficient at this point to just search for anything useful though, since we've almost finished searching the entire store.
You can start breaking down furniture with the fire axe, yes. :)
If there was a clue, you'd have found it in the first hour of searching.
Maybe one of you should reconsider? I mean, I don't have a problem with it, but having two people work together to feed a little girl her candy seems like a little overkill.
Unfortunately, we can only start one rumour every day. We'll have to wait till midnight before we can get another rumour going.
Snark and I will share candy! I like the blue ones, but also the red ones, and the white ones. I like them all!
And I can share them with Snark! Like friends! Hee~
Well, as the resident unqualified back alley 'doctor' medical professional, only I have the experience and expertise to shove candy down someone's throat!
Edit: is the fireaxe all we need to start barricading, or do we need more tools?
I'm going to go investigate that house to our west. After that I'll take the next watch.
"nothing of use was savage"
I will investigate the hospital. Don't burn anymore cards while I'm gone.
Err, I'm pretty sure you need at least one barricading tool to be able to do the job. Which we don't have right now. I mean, you can try... I just don't think you'll make much progress.
But it was fun to find a clue to help us in the house!
More treasure hunts will be fun, won't it, Andrew? We'll need to breach more places though...
Ozzo wants Mary to treat herself and then search the rest of the store.
Snark wants Snark to treat Mary.
Vide wants Vide to investigate the bank.
CSL wants Andrew to investigate the house to the west and then watch for zombies.
Tionivo wants Oscar to investigate the hospital.
If there are no objections, another update will be up soon.
