Ok! my Lovely daughter Hannah (Age 16) and I started an All Things Zombie Campaign for Christmas!

Since we are in temp space we are using lots of primed minis and stand in props (Napkins for stands of trees and Business cards for cars).

All the Zombie and Survivor Minis are from Rebel Minis.

Cast of Characters:

Martha, Homemaker Rep 5. Grew up hunting. Ambidextrous and Marksman. Married to "Steve". Vegas wedding, it was dark.

"Jamaica Bob" Rep 5 Rastafarian "Window Tint Technician". Likes the Ganja, Mon. "Knife Man" and "Agile"

Story: Martha took her car in to Jamaica Bobs Window Tint Emporium for a full window tint. Unfortunately none of Bob's staff showed up for work. With all the sirens, Radio warnings and stuff, Jamaica Bob was uncomfortable letting the nice lady go off alone, so they determined to go to the Police Station immediately (Location 1) to find out what was going on.

Upon arriving at the Police Station in her Jeep, there were two officers out front and a few "civilians" walking around the streets in an oddly random fashion.

Exiting the car, our two heroes (Jamaica Bob hiding his Machete in his waistband down the pants leg and Martha carrying a Tire iron from her jeep) went up to the police.

The police warned them off telling them "everything was under control" and that "they should go home".

During this time the "Odd Civilians" started staggering toward the little group.

As they came in close, Bob and one of the policemen were charged by Zombies!

Jamaica Bob handily passed his tests, pulled out the Machete and got "Down and Funky, Mon" chopping the head off the Zed.

The Police officer was not so lucky. He failed with 0 passed and the Zombie charged him, pulling him to the ground savagely biting into the neck of the Police Officer. The other Police Officer totally failed and ran into the Station, slamming and locking the door and 0-passed his Sanity check. All in all not a good day for the men in blue. :-(

Next round, our intrepid duo went first and Jamaica Bob "Macheted" the Zombie crouching over the fallen officer and Martha looted him, getting a BA Pistol!

Unfortunately for us a Zombie came around the corner of the building and moved toward Jamaica Bob from behind!!

New Turn

"BLAM!" Martha put a .45 round into the Zombie, center of mass, knocking it off its feet. Jamaica Bob whirled around and beheaded the prone Zombie in a glittering arc of gore-drenched Machete.

With a new round of groans from Zombies hearing the pistol fire, the duo retreated to the Jeep and squealie-wheelied out of there.

Next game was "Spouse's Workplace" where they go to try to find "Steve".

Up in a sec…

Setting: Day 2 "Steve's Office"

Excellent improv! Sometimes it's the best gaming.

Day 2: Steve's Office.

Martha has not heard from Steve all day, so she has determined to go and see if he is at the office (Jamaica Bob has decided to go along, since he is more and more worried about "De Zombies, Mon" and this Nice Lady is now packing heat!)

As they pull up to the office (Jamaica Bob assumes it is either a Telemarketing office or a Shady Import-export business, given the bad area of town), they see a large number of panicky civilians running around the office park along with 8 of what could only be THE LIVING DEAD!

After taking a round (Failed activation) trying to decide if they want to get out of the Jeep and force their way through the civilians, the Zombies start moving in..

One Zombie grabs a civilian, dragging him to the ground with horrible strength while three move toward the jeep and the other 4 close in a rough circle around the now-thoroughly panicked civilians.

The Zombie starts "Feasting" on the pulled down civvy and the other zombies lurch toward him to join in, scattering the remaining Rep 3 Civilians like minnows! All but one completely failed the "Feasting" check and totally flipped out! The one Civilian who Pass-2ed sprinted off the board "Feets don't fail me now!"

Martha and Bob floored it around the distracted Zombies (4 rounds of feasting) and screeched up in front of the office.

Bob jumped out while Martha kept the motor running and ran into the office shouting for Steve.

After being told Steve had left (Failed the roll with a 6!) and that they did not know where Steve went (Martha has no kids so school is out).

Steve must have gone home! Fortunately Home is location 3 in our list, and as Bob jumped back in the Jeep our now thoroughly panicked duo is making for Martha's house to see if Steve is home….

Mad Props to Ed at Two-Hour Wargames!

(And yes I used Zombiesmith Quar for Civilians!)

Okay, who's got the idea of a rastafarian window tint technician?
