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 now available for gold or silver on Divx: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]


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 four missions happening simultaneously:


[Mayfield is Undead] [Krosius, Marshmallow, Shabooty, Cheeseliker, DontShootToasters] [MISSION COMPLETE]
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]

[The Deluge] [Viscount Islands, Dux] [MISSION COMPLETE]
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"]

[Wagons... East!] [Neotoma, Dubh, Tommy2Hands, Romanqwerty, Speed Racer, VALVEjunkie] [MISSION PENDING]
Estimated Location: Western Nevada, and whatever other country that landed nearby.
Description: It's time to leave the cube and find a place to move Raider Camp to. Water, RAD sources, and new friends would be just swell.
Unlockable Ads: [To Boldly Go], [500 Miles], [Mission from God]

[Mayfield is Probably Dead] [Firetruck, scarlet st., Lockout, Raneados, Squall, Antimatter, Thor4242] [MISSION COMPLETE]
Estimated Location:Deep underground, in the ruins of Mayfield.
Description:The Mayfield team has been gone too long. It's time to confirm their status as KIA, MIA, or totally fabulous.
Unlockable Ads: [Leave no Man Behind], [Dungeon Master], [Totally Fabulous]

[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: ???

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

    Wait,

    So are we still going down on our rescue mission? So far as I know, the hospital is still surrounded by those Hyenish, and the group is still largely injured.

    Ok, screw it.

    With the Ocean King:

    Wolf, R.B., Jack (I've made some executive decisions, if you all are alright with that. It'll likely be a short mission and we can catch up with the exploring group.)


    This leaves Clams, Bob, Nolan, STYX, and CRABBY to make a decision.

    maaaan I really want to see new places instead of retreading Mayfield again

    but R.B. would be all about rescuin' folks, so I guess I'm down

    from the last thread

    [Raider Camp]

    Dusty takes a few measurements of Jimothy's good arm and walks back to the workshop to start the initial construction of a new arm.


    Spoiler:


    Since its acquisition, the workshop had rapidly imprinted to Dusty. Beneath the glow of the Christmas lights, in a pile at Dusty's feet, over a dozen crayon and colored pencil drawn pictures lay. Some were schematics, others were of people- mostly from Raider Camp. He tended to spend most of his time alone- "people-persons" could handle the shouting outside. At the back of the workshop, in a Aston Martin missing its wheels, was Dusty's "bedroom." Windows had been covered up, from the inside, with more drawings of Raider Camp and its inhabitants. The inside stank with the smell of sand, spice, and motor oil.

    "That's cool." I sigh in relief.

    "I only ask because sometimes....I just like, lose control. Like, it feels like I'm not using the fire but the fire is like using me? If that makes any sense." I regain my composure. "Normally I don't care about that sort of thing, but if I"m starting to forget my rampages then, well that could be the start of a problem."

    "Anyway, I think we should go west. As everyone knows, shit gets crazier the further away you are from open water. Great Plains? More like Crazytown U.S. I'm pretty sure at least that hasn't changed just because of the Crash. Also, heading for the coast just feels like a very post-apocalyptic thing to do."

    We should take something smaller than the Mothertrucker. Conserve our gas for moving the camp.

    How is he planning of moving this anyway.

    Towards the Ocean and hopefully fertile ground sounds like a good plan. I wonder what side of The Rockies we are on. The Crash probably wouldn't teleport a whole mountian range? Right, probably not.

    The Ocean King stood calmly, an eye in the storm of preparation taking place around him. Let others scramble, he thought. They know what they need to know.

    In almost no time at all, The Ocean King was leading his team away from the safety of the camp into violent uncertainty. He was pleased. Upon reaching the roof of the tower he organized his troops.

    "We descend....We descend into the unknown...But you must know that we seek a treasure for which I would gladly brave mountain, sea, and truck stop bathroom to acquire...The trust of our comrades...It will not be broken...Against it, all enemies will falter and break like the dogs they are...For together we will create a new world!"

    At that, the Ocean King swung himself down the hatch on the roof of the tower, leading from the front as he explored deeper.

    so why doesn't telepathy have a maximum range?

    I can understand the subneural network, but if robonet connection is ranged, then why isn't telepathy?

    Also if telepathy isn't ranged, does that mean you can use trickster and the like from anywhere as long as you've met the person?
