RADLands-1.png

Seven days ago, the world ended. Not with a bang, or with a whimper, but with a sound like a camel being shoved through the eye of a needle.

Grab your shotgun and don your re-purposed sporting equipment - Ragnarok's come and it's time to mess shit up.


Seasons one, two, three and four now available on VHS!


If you do not want to make a character, but would still like to bip in occasionally/fuck with the players, then do I have good news for you! Characters whose names are written in Lime may be controlled by anyone who wanders into the thread. Anyone. Just make sure to post the character's actions in Sandybrown so DE?AD notices them.

There are currently five (!) missions happening simultaneously:


[The Eye of the Sandstorm] [Dubh, scarlet st., VALVEjunkie, Zanzibar] [MISSION COMPLETE]
Estimated Location: Western Nevada
Description: Nearby the Raider camp there is a perpetual sandstorm, a never-ending spire of dust, wind and grit marring the landscape. Your mission is to find the "eye" of this supernatural storm, investigate the phenomena, and keep an eye out for any dangers or allies that might be found in this inhospitable terrain.
Unlocked Ads: [Gritty], [Muad'Dib]

[The Cliffs of Insanity] [Squall, Raneados, Antimatter, Lockout, romanqwerty, Tommy2Hands] [MISSION COMPLETE]
Estimated Location: Western Nevada
Description: The Raider camp appears to be situated on the top of a tremendous cube, a suspicious geographic formation at best, Inconceivable! Your mission is to go to the nearby cliffs and explore them for possible dangers, boons, and safe places to scale or descend the cliffs.
Unlockable Ads: [Acrobat], [Death From Above], [Scale the Foe]

[Mayfield is Undead] [Krosius, Marshmallow, Shabooty, Cheeseliker, DontShootToasters]
Estimated Location: Western Nevada
Description: "The Roof", the tippy top of the Clark Tower just barely juts above the desert near the Raider Camp. A few refugees have come to the camp, bearing stories of a buried city, mutated monsters, and the rotten trappings of a civilization devestated. However, there may be valuable items and scrap to be found, and information to be gathered. A group must be sent to further explore the ruins of Mayfield, and bring word of possible enemies or benefits back to the Raider Camp.
Unlockable Ads: [Tunnel Lord], [Adept Looter], [No Fear]

[Warren's Crepes] [DLC] [Purchased by: Squall, Dubh, Marshmallow, DontShootToasters, Raneados, VALVEjunkie, Scarlet St.]
Estimated Location: Western Nevada
Description: Leo Dryer, a new refugee to The Camp, tells of a family restaurant transported into the desert. An evil presence has taken over the restaurant, causing Leo to flee in search of help. This optional task must be undertaken by a group willing to delve into the very bowels of hell to save a place that serves really really really good hash browns.
Unlockable Ads: ???

[The Chopper Block] [MISSION COMPLETE] [Dux]
Estimated Location: Western Nevada
Description: You've been tasked with taking out an entire military complex with a few irRADiated bullets to steal a helicopter for reasons unknown. Why the hell not?

[The Ink Spots] [NeoToma, Firetruck, Speed Racer] [SIDEQUEST COMPLETE]
Estimated Location: Western Nevada
Description: You're travelling on a floating tank with a sociopath. The obvious course of action is to find civilized life, and more importantly, a tattoo parlor, because looking good is what's important in the wasteland.
Unlockable Ads: [Scissor Sisters] [City Slicker]

[The Deluge] [Viscount Islands]
Estimated Location: Probably near Seattle
Description: You just got the shit kicked out of you by the most rag-tag group of wasters ever, have no idea where you are, and to top it all off you're being possessed by a homicidal freak of nature who only views you as a tool to be discarded later. Try to look at the bright side though! Nah, there is no bright side, it's rainy as fuck.
Unlockable Ads: [Quadrophenia] [Ah yes, "Freakers"]

Ads that we missed the chance to unlock: [Acrobat], [Death from Above], [Iron Blood], [Expert Forager], [Charmer], [Shank], [Burglar], [Sandworm Rider]

    "You mean I found you silly!" Chuck follows Chet, while bouncing his soccer ball on his knees

    "Hopefully they have peanut butter and jelly with the crusts cut off!" at the thought of his favorite lunchtime snack the tiny freaker rushes ahead and bursts into the store, mouth agape

    [Mayfield is Undead]
    [phys 4][Soc 2][Ment 2]
    Wounds:[==] Bruises:[] RADS: [ST]

    Jayce looks around the barren bookstore, shrugs, and slithers out whispering "Stationary, then?"

    The hell is going to be in stationary? What even is that? Don't....er...didn't people just right on normal paper?

    He enters the stationary store, looking for anything that they could loot.



    [Mayfield]

    Dan grabs the bottle and the cigars.

    Fuck yeah. Finally.

    He suddenly realizes how disgusting it is that he's been chewing the same old cigar for weeks and tosses the thing away, spitting the bad taste out. He takes a swig from the bottle and it burns down his throat oh so nicely. He takes note if there are any back doors or anything before heading back outside. He holds the cigars and whiskey up in the air and grunts to his companions. He places the items in his lap and then Throws his hands up in the air, totally indicating to everyone that they should p-a-a-rty! He figures they all could use a drink after what just happened, except for Chuck of course. Dan smirked as he thought of Henry's face if he saw Dan offering the kid booze.





    [Mayfield] - Phys 2 [] Soc 4 [] Ment 2 [-] [| ]

    I follow Jayce back out into the courtyard, seems whoever looted the bookstore did us a favor. We won't have to cart any books back to the lobby because, hey, they're likely already there.

    Let's see, there was also a bunch of memory sticks and such right? Those were probably looted from the building we just came out of. I wonder if he would've looted the third floor as well? Given just how crazy our mystery looter was about getting information (emptying a whole bookstore, really?) it seems quite likely.

    I opt to stay outside the stationary shop while Jayce explores it, when Dan comes from his building bearing alcohol and a cheery disposition I smile and wave, stepping over to view his bounty.

    "Nice work! I wonder how those missed getting looted?"

    [Henry->Cecil: You done fighting yet? The issue down here cleared up, and I got the id of the dude who was doing it. Also, we're starting to find some stuff so if there's any specific requests from you folks, let me know.]



    [Mayfield]Phys 2 [=] Soc 2 [] Ment 4 [] [|||]

    "Well, this is a bust. Let's go to the sandwich place, Chuck. Maybe we'll having better luck there." Chet sighs as he leaves the Chinese place. "All that work for nothing. But at least we found you, eh Chuck?"

    Chuck goes into the sandwich shop, but not before using his pack to wave at Henry.

    Spots recap:

    -Sydney bitched about the lack of Lay's chips.
    -The Bro spent two of six rad while double-checking that they didn't miss some Lay's in order to create some.
    -The Ocean king offered to hire The Bro as the camp shaman, but the Bro hasn't responded yet. I'm waiting for the Sydney action to play out first just to make sure we have a sensible order of events.

    Is it just the stationary store and sandwich shop or was there another restaurant to check?

    [On the Road Again]

    Dusty starts the Mothertrucker and takes off- along with anybody who wants to join- trying to locate a hospital.

    -First stop: anywhere on the cube that hasn't been explored yet

    -second stop: around the cube edge, looking for a way down

    -third: if no edge presents itself, do a jump and land the Mothertrucker with the new thrusters

    "Arr, get back 'ere with me crew ya overgrown excuse for a polly."

    equipment is tempting, but I've always hated DLC equipment. Out of principle, I think I'm gonna have to go for the adventure!

    R.B. looks around the tunnel, not seeing friends Sticks and CRABBY anywhere. Studying the hole for a moment, he reaches a conclusion: they must have been taken by the awful thing that scared the worms.

    He looks back at Jack, giving the mutant a chance to dismount if he'd rather not aid a rescue. He then gives his trusty steed a reassuring pat before charging into the breach upon the mighty sandworm.

    Jack enters the cavern with RB on the back of the worm. The robots are nowhere to be seen. What is rather unsettling is the giant hole in the ground. There's torn dirt, and the hole is gigantic and messy. Much unlike the holes the worms make.

    Something big and clumsy made this hole. And RB's been with me the whole time...

    Jack guessed from RB's warbling that the robots would be in here, but alas.

    After a second, Jack makes up his mind

    He pats RB on the shoulder and nods comradely. Have to help the robots. Especially his fellow skitterer. Jack stays with RB.

    At least the kid and the pirate probably aren't going to get into trouble
