The survivors approached the small rural town from the west. Parking the pick up truck across the road the group escaped from the cramped confines of the truck to spread out across the road.
The group had been sent on a "supply run" mission by the head of the survivor pack they had been living with. They had a compound some miles back with a lot going for it, but supplies were starting to get low.
The primary goal for the mission was to survive. If they could all manage that, then the group was to search for and collect as much food, ammunition or medical supplies as they could.
Anything that could be used would also be welcome, but only after the essentials were found.
Anyone bitten was not to return to the compound.
With this in mind, the survivors quickly formulated a plan of action for the mission...
Primary Mission: to survive.
Main Mission: to collect as much essentials as possible (food, ammunition and medical supplies).
Secondary Mission: find anything that will be useful for the survivor compound you are currently living at.
The table has been set up as follows:
There are currently four (4) zombie spawn points that you know of. Two are not shown in this photo, but will be shown later in this briefing.
The Survivors all start in the same location as shown in the photo.
This concludes the mission brief. If anyone has any questions now is the time to ask them.
Players have one week from today to ask questions and give their orders for game turn 1.
Players may also discuss the mission with each other before giving their first orders - they can discuss who has what tasks, what they think would be a good plan of action or any other thing they wish to go through before the mission starts.
Once survivors move apart they will not be able to talk to each other unless they are within a short range of each other. Of course they could yell if they want to talk to each other.... (mwhahahahahaha)
Oh, and as you can tell, there are no zombies on the table right now... a 'handful' will be placed as soon as I post this blog. But don't worry too much... they wont be in range of you just yet ;-)
