Status Update: Big Boy is down.
« on: July 07, 2017, 09:11:41 PM »
Post is timed well after my last ones about film and stuff.

Holy shit, half the enclave just fell three days ago.  I just got enough charge on my specs to tell you guys.  Stay clear! Vector city.  Its all gone.  Son of a bitch!  40 ppl, myself included, were outside, digging a new waterway, when we heard the engine whistle blow.  Well, BB had its fortifications right at least.  We had to lock it down from the outside.  Anyone alive inside had to go to specific exits to get out, we got about nine more before the screaming started.  Lost three of the rescues when a bite went bad.  We just lost half the enclave.  I don't have the words.

Today we're supposed to check for torpor and execute them while they're down.  Maybe we can salvage the place.  Guess who has to go in?  Shit.  I knew these people.  Just letting you know in case you don't hear from me again.

Just wanna say.  Don't give in.  We can survive.  We just can't abandon our souls for the now, if we're going to make it.

God help me.

Its time.

Good luck Blue. Don't be ashamed to run if it even looks like you're running out of torpor. Running prevents a cascade.

I'm in the neighborhood (making my way through Southern Montana right now). Anyone want to head over there and see if we can be of help? I've heard some rumors about a pretty good score in that general vicinity we could look into afterwards.

Big Boy should be able to make it out. No need to worry about him, he is smart.

Big Boy should be able to make it out. No need to worry about him, he is smart.

Cautions for the both of you.

Deus, I'd expect better out of someone calling themselves an information broker. Big Boy is an enclave, not a person, and reading the OP should have made that evident so you must have skipped it. Either you got it confused with some other Taker or you were just spamming a sympathy post to appear good.

Green, keep on going to hell, but don't drag this thread with you. Everyone else, ignore Green and carry on. Our prayers are with the people of Big Boy regardless.

Carry on, Green, Deus.

Yeah Deus wouldn't have made that mistake. My fingers to brain is all dumb. I read the thread, but the Player Depred.

I honestly thought you'd done it on purpose as a 'wait, wtf is he on about' thing for someone to react to. But if it was just a mistake, then he probably crit failed a research roll. Takers are fallible too, after all. ;)

I GM for a reason, to move plot and not roll crit fail 3 times in a row, seriously did that in a DnD game, character died needless to say.

Not dead.  Lost a finger because nobody would be bothered to help assist my self-done first aid.  Only latent left up here.  No need to shovel latent latrines or do fixemup.  I'm going to go try to hire on with one of those caravans that comes by.
