    Update 11: Material needs.
    ?.jpg
    Start off with Big Mc misfiring his gun. With all these guns going off we really need a way to teach people how to handle one before someone dies. There was some food contamination because we no longer have a dedicated kitchen. NotoriousBEN found some canned goods and brought them back home. PLA is turning into an amazing scavenger since every day she seems to find something useful and this time found some fuel that we can use. Work was finished on the medical area and library so we can now do research and if anyone gets sick they can be taken care of. The watchtower was finished and is now being used to keep the home safe. Big Mc ended up running away during the night and is now missing. Some of the food is used to preserve the rest of the food we have in storage so that it doesn't spoil.
    ?.jpg
    Nocren gets ready to go out and scavenge by grabbing a nail puller and pistol from the supply locker. He jumps in a truck and drives over to a warehouse. In front of the warehouse is a juggernaut and he books it back home to grab some help. Spotting Elvenshae he asks him to come along so that he can safely search the warehouse and together they go to take out the juggernaut. Arriving in front of the warehouse Nocren pumps a few 50. caliber rounds into the freaks head and he and Elvenshae beat on it a bit until it's dead. Nocren's fighting skill improved to level 2 during the fight. All they find at the warehouse are some backpacks and some acetaminophen, nothing that made fighting that juggernaut worthwhile.
    ?.jpg
    The two of them drive down a hill near the home to visit an industrial supply store. There they find two stacks of building materials and Nocren grabs one to bring home. At home Nocren is tired and has Magic Pink take over while he gets some rest. Magic Pink takes from the supply locker a backpack and brush axe.
    ?.jpg
    Capsaicin has gone missing and Magic Pink goes to where he was last seen to look for him. At the house Capsaicin is nowhere to be seen and Magic Pink starts searching the area hoping to find him alive and staying away from the infestation that is close by. He finds Capsaicin in the house next to the infestation and they grab some weapons that Magic Pink found and start to go home. While searching the houses in the area Magic Pink's wits skill went up to level 2.
    ?.jpg
    A horde chooses that moment to go down the only street in and out of this area and they wait for it to pass by. Magic Pink's fighting skill improved to level 2 by fighting some zombies on the way back home.
    ?.jpg
    They arrive safely back at home and Capsaicin thanks Magic Pink for the escort and goes to bed. Magic Pink goes out to meet up with Buttcleft and take down an armored zombie that's been spotted in the area. He finds Buttcleft and the two heavy hitters start looking for the freak.
    ?.jpg
    They find the SWAT zombie and easily kill it, Buttcleft goes home while Magic Pink does a search of the surrounding homes for supplies. He finds some weapons and a suppressor that he is able to fit in his backpack and some food jars that he packs up to bring home. After he drops the food off he goes to the industrial supply store that Nocren searched to get the rest of the materials there. Magic Pink fought a lot of zombies there and improved his fighting to level 5. He takes out all the zombies that had congregated there and takes the materials home.
    ?.jpg
    Magic Pink decides to get some rest and has Lucia take over. Work is started on a garden with the materials that Magic Pink brought home (Happy now @Iolo?) and Lucia goes to where Big Mc was said to have been spotted.
    ?.jpg
    Why yes, that is Elvenshae in the watchtower with his shotgun. Making it very likely that Lucia will have to fight some zombies when she gets home. She arrives at the building that Big Mc was spotted and doesn't find him, she starts searching the nearby buildings for any trace of him. After fighting through some zombies, improving her fighting skill to level 3 in the process, she finds Big Mc. She brings him home safely and heads out to a warehouse to collect the remaining materials that are there.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    At the warehouse Lucia grabs the rest of the materials that are there and turns the building into an outpost. The materials are brought home and she has Skiddles take over while she rests. He goes to an industrial supply store for the remaining materials it has. With the materials he brings home work is started on setting up a cooking area to prevent food contamination and allow the cooks a place to work. He sets out to loot another warehouse for some materials that it has.
    ?.jpg
    The materials are then put to use improving the watchtower so we have a place that people can use to get better at handling their guns. A call comes in from NotoriousBEN for some help killing a juggernaut and Nocturnal volunteers to go out.
    ?.jpg
    Skiddles goes to the sleeping area to get some rest and Nocturnal makes sure she is ready for the freak before heading out. She meets with NotoriousBEN and they start searching for the juggernaut.
    ?.jpg
    Nocturnal shows off the sweep kick she learned that trips zombies.
    ?.jpg
    They find the freak and Nocturnal starts firing at it with her assault rifle, she's not that good of a shot but when your target is almost the size of the broad side of a barn, it's hard to miss. She unloads almost a whole clip into the juggernaut before it charges at them and knocks her down. NotoriousBEN starts hitting it drawing its attention while Nocturnal gets up and cuts its head off.
    ?.jpg
    With the freak dead the two of them head home to get some rest.

    Update 12: Gun-nuts anonymous.
    ?.jpg
    While we were away PLA again shows off her scavenging skills by bringing home some materials. Elvenshae had gone out and found some food. The garden is growing, the kitchen area has been finished, and the watchtower was improved to a shooting platform. Iolo starts working on a feast in the new kitchen and Elvenshae gets ready to go out.
    ?.jpg
    He plans on taking care of an infestation so after grabbing some shells from the supply locker he asks PLA for some assistance.
    ?.jpg
    Walking in the front door Elvenshae unloads his shotgun into the group of zombies, killing a few and knocking down the rest. PLA comes up behind and starts taking out the downed zombies, then Elvenshae switches to his cavalry saber and kills the screamer. With the infestation cleared they search the warehouse and grab the last few materials left to bring back home.
    ?.jpg
    At home Elvenshae learns that NotoriousBEN has been jumpier than usual lately and could stand to work out his fear somehow. Elvenshae takes him to a minimart to clear out a group of zombies that have gathered there.
    ?.jpg
    The shotgun once again is used to level a group of zombies and PLA and NotoriousBEN kill anything that survived the shot. They grab some food and go back home.
    ?.jpg
    Back at home NotoriousBEN is feeling better and goes to bed to get some rest. Elvenshae grabs a few more shells from the supply locker and with PLA heads out to an infestation. Iolo asks them to be on the lookout for some steaks so he can finish the feast. They drive over and upon entering the house, are immediately set upon by zombies. PLA starts swinging her pipe wrench and clubbing in zombie heads while Elvenshae cuts the legs off a few zombies to take them out of the fight quickly. With the screamer and the rest of the zombies killed the infestation is cleared. During the fight Elvenshae's saber was damaged and he starts searching the house for a replacement. In the fridge he finds some steaks that Iolo said he needed.
    ?.jpg
    In the next house he searches he finds a pirate cutlass that he starts using. Along with the cutlass he found a revolver and a pistol that he brings home after loading up some medicine into a rucksack. A home they drop off the medicine, steaks, and guns that were found. Then they resupply and head out to take care of another infestation.
    ?.jpg
    They easily clear the infestation and start searching the house. Elvenshae finds a bunch of usable weapons and some guns that he loads into his backpack. They get into a car and start driving home when they spot another infestation. Despite already having cleared one they get out of the car and get ready to kill some zombies.
    ?.jpg
    A screamer is glaring at Elvenshae from the front porch and he blows its head off with his shotgun. Inside the rest of the zombies are taken care of by Elvenshae's cutlass and PLA's wrench. The two of them then drive home and are greeted by the feast that Iolo finished. They enjoy the feast and then go to the sleeping area to get some rest.
    ?.jpg
    Nocturnal gears up and goes to meet up with Lucia to take down a bloated zombie. After she reaches the office buildings they begin to search for the freak.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    They find the bloater and Nocturnal takes aim with her assault rifle, she pops the freak with a single round and Lucia heads home. Nocturnal has to fight off a few zombies that heard her shot and in doing so improves her reflexes to level 4. While out here she goes to a house that has yet to be searched and looks for anything useful.
    ?.jpg
    Nocturnal: :twisted:
    She finds a new gun that she takes for herself and inside the house are some weapons and some canned goods that she loads up to take back home. Slicing through a few zombies to get to a car her fighting skill goes up to level 6 and her edged weapon specialization improves to level 3. At home she drops off the food and supplies she found along with her old assault rifle.
    ?.jpg
    A call comes in from Buttcleft for some help and Nocturnal goes out to assist and hopes for an excuse to use her new gun. The run over improves her cardio to level 3. He's trapped in a shed and she goes inside to help take out the zombies. Once the area is clear Buttcleft wants to head home and Nocturnal wants to make a quick search of some of the buildings here. During the search Buttcleft starts talking earning himself the marked for greatness trait.
    B: I've always felt like I was specially blessed. When I was six, I fell off my daddy's boat. I was back at the stern, and everybody who was there swears I didn't make a peep when I went over. Probably would have drowned, except some fella picnicking on the bank saw me. Dove right in and hauled me out. Guess the good lord sent him, just like he sent you.
    The search improves Nocturnal's wits skill to level 4. They don't find much but she grabs some industrial-sized cooking supplies and brings them home. After dropping off the food and Buttcleft she gets some sleep while Capsaicin takes over. He starts by going to search a house for supplies.
    ?.jpg
    Inside the house he finds a liquor cabinet that hasn't been raided and takes the bottles to be used as explosives. Inside this house he doesn't find much more and he goes to a house that Elvenshae and PLA had clered of an infestation. He finds a weapon and some medicine that he runs home. During the run back his cardio improved to level 2.
    ?.jpg
    At home he stashes the liquor somewhere Big Mc won't find it and drops off the medicine. NotoriousBEN is looking for some help taking down an armored zombie and Capsaicin answers the call for help. Once there the two of them search for and quickly find the armored zombie. The freak goes down easily and NotoriousBEN goes home while Capsaicin searches a house.
    ?.jpg
    He hears over the radio that Nocren and Elvenshae had a little too much fun with all of the guns we've been finding and used up some of our ammunition.
    ?.jpg
    After dropping off what he found at home Capsaicin checks out the rumor of an RV that's nearby.
    ?.jpg
    It turns out the rumors were true and he finds a beat-up RV. Lily wants to have work started on it so it's running if we need to leave the area. Right now it has two flat tires and some of the group are tasked with using some of our materials to fix them. Hopefully they don't go flat again because finding a new tire now could be pretty hard. Driving home he hears that Skiddles needs some help getting back home.
    ?.jpg
    Capsaicin arrives in time to help Skiddles and they have to kill a few dozen zombies before the area is clear. Both of them then head home to get some rest.

    Update 13: Clearing infestations with superior firepower.
    ?.jpg
    The while we were gone recap starts with Nocren misfiring his gun. Apparently Elvenshae's talk with NotoriousBEN didn't fully work and he ran off and is now missing. A case of medicine was brought back by Iolo and Elvenshe found some usable materials. The RV's tires are now fixed and we can leave if we have to. Some other survivors want to use our shooting platform to get better at using guns and we agree to let them use it for some cases of ammunition. CoolJammer00 goes out to survey the area and find any infestations that we've missed.
    ?.jpg
    He doesn't find anything noteworthy and instead goes to help Capsaicin take out an armored zombie. On the way over he passes by a house and hears a feral roar from inside. It apparently smelled CoolJammer00 and rushes out the back door to try and eat him. Luckily CoolJammer00's crowbar is able to knock it down and he smashes its head open. Leaving the corpse of the feral behind him he meets up with Capsaicin and they start looking for the armored zombie. They find the SWAT zombie in the same house the feral came from and the two of them are easily able to kill it. Capsaicin goes home and CoolJammer00 starts searching the houses in the area for supplies. The search turns up some more edged weapons and two pistols that he drops off at an outpost then keeps looking for supplies. While CoolJammer00 was out his fighting skill went up to level 3 and his wits skill improved to level 2. He finds more weapons and runs home some ammunition that he found.
    ?.jpg
    Looking in the supply locker we have plenty of guns for people. Buttcleft takes over while CoolJammer00 gets some rest. A call comes in for help clearing an infestation and Buttcleft gears up for it by grabbing the assault rifle from the supply locker and attaching a suppressor to it.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    While heading to the meet-up point he spots a bloater and uses it, along with the two zombies near it, as target practice. Inside the building he joins Nocturnal and together they go to the infestation.
    ?.jpg
    They spot the infestation and get ready to fight the zombies that the screamers have drawn there. Buttcleft takes out his assault rifle and downs the first wave of zombies, then he shoots the screamers and a few more of the zombies. Sadly he runs out of bullets and he and Nocturnal have to fight the few remaining zombies up close. Buttcleft's shooting skill goes up to level 2 and his heavy weapons specialization improves to level 4. Nocturnal heads home and Buttcleft goes to look for some materials at a warehouse. The warehouse has surprisingly little left inside but he's able to find two stacks of materials and loads one of them into the back of the truck left there and drives home. Just as he is about to collect the rest of the materials Elvenshae calls down from the watchtower that he thought he saw NotoriousBEN at the building across the street.
    ?.jpg
    Apparently NotoriousBEN had heard that Nocturnal wanted some help clearing an infestation and had come to offer his services. Although the infestation had already been taken care of he agreed to come back home. Buttcleft loads up some fuel that and then escorts NotoriousBEN back home. He then goes to the warehouse to collect the rest of the materials that he found.
    ?.jpg
    At the warehouse he runs into some zombies and practices his new sweep attack by cutting off their legs. He then loads the rest of the materials into the truck and drives home. Work is then started on improving the second sleeping area to real beds so that everyone can have their own. Afterwards he grabs a pistol from the supply locker since the assault rifle is out of ammo and goes to meet with Capsaicin about killing a bloated zombie. They start searching for the freak and find it in a shed. Capsaicin draws it outside so Buttcleft has a clear shot at it, he then takes it out with one shot. They both go home to get some rest and Lucia takes over for Buttcleft. She grabs a pistol from the supply locker and goes to search the last building near the warehouse Buttcleft just searched.
    ?.jpg
    She uses some of the nearby zombies to improve her shooting skill before she starts looking for supplies.
    ?.jpg
    Inside the building she finds another assault rifle. It uses 22. caliber rounds so it might not deal as much damage to something like a juggernaut, but it can still blow a zombies brains out. A call comes in from Big Mc for some help getting home and Lucia heads to where the infestation was earlier to find him. She sees him trying to fight off a group of zombies and she starts helping him. Together they are able to make the path home clear and Big Mc arrives there safely. Lucia then drives out to another warehouse and finds some materials that she is able to bring home.
    ?.jpg
    Nocturnal wants some help clearing out another infestation and Lucia agrees to help.
    ?.jpg
    The building is infested and Lucia makes some noise outside to draw the zombies out. The first one through the door has its head blown off and the next zombie to peek its head out is the screamer, its curiosity earns itself a bullet to the face. She then takes out a few more zombies with the pistol before having to go inside with Nocturnal and kill the last few zombies. With the infestation clear the two of them head home to get some rest.

    Generic question about the game so spoilered as to not ruin the wonderful flow of this thread.
    So in my own game, I think I ran across a bug. No matter who I use, they are voiced by Marcus. Also, it seems like areas on the map are 'off'. I was charged with taking care of an investation and it was in the middle of a dirt road about 100 yards from a house. Is my save game corrupt? I just restarted this game since I was annoyed how the first was working out (newbie mistakes) so I'm considering restarting this one also.

    Update 14: Grenade launchers are the best.
    ?.jpg
    Not much happened while we were away, the other group of survivors finished training on our shooting platform and seem to have gotten better at shooting. Nocren and NotoriousBEN both mishandled their weapons but luckily didn't hurt anyone. Big Mc was able to find a case of medicine and Elvenshae found some cases of ammunition to make up for the ones he wasted earlier. Work was finished on improving the second sleeping area so everyone now has their own bed.
    ?.jpg
    Nocturnal sets out to search a building down the road for some supplies. She drives a truck over and sees that the building is a farmhouse, might be able to find a shotgun or rifle inside. She doesn't find much of use except for an improvised suppressor that she attaches to her assault rifle. With the suppressor attached she uses some zombies that have congregated near the truck to improve her shooting skill to level 2.
    ?.jpg
    After making the way to the truck clear she drives through a field to a barn that was most likely abandoned before the zombies came, however it might have some useful building materials. There's a screamer just outside the barn so Nocturnal blows its head off before it can draw other zombies here. On the ground floor she finds some materials and then climbs a ladder to an area that some other survivors must have been using as a home for a bit. There's a grill, bottled water, and spent shotgun shells near an opening in the roof. The survivors must have left voluntarily because the only useful thing she finds is a large backpack that is then equipped. After taking out a bloater that was getting a little too close she loads the materials into the truck and drives home.
    ?.jpg
    The materials are dropped off at home and she goes to meet with Capsaicin about an armored zombie hunt. When they start searching they find a SWAT zombie standing by itself and easily kill it. Nocturnal's reflexes skill and edged weapon specialization go up to level 5 and level 4 respectively.
    ?.jpg
    After Capsaicin goes home Nocturnal drives to a warehouse hoping to find some materials. Inside she finds a lot of zombies that have to be taken care of before she can search, taking them out improves her fighting skill to level 7. There are no materials to be found but she does find some ammo for her assault rifle and another large backpack.
    ?.jpg
    She's about to head over to another building to search when a request for a diversion comes in over the radio. Stopping by an outpost first she drops off what she found and picks up a wind-up alarm clock. Arriving at the requested location she sets the clock down and runs back to her truck before it goes off. The alarm clock goes off and zombies start heading for the shed while Nocturnal drives away. Elvenshae sends his thanks over the radio but doesn't say why he wanted the diversion. It most likely was to draw zombies away from a location but if Nocren was with him, they might have wanted a large group of zombies that could be used for easy target practice.
    ?.jpg
    Either way the request was satisfied and Nocturnal goes home to get some rest. She has Iolo take over and he first switches out his grenade rifle for an assault rifle, that he attaches a machined suppressor to, so he can get better at shooting. The grenade launcher is left in the supply locker with the stipulation that if someone else takes it Iolo might "mistake" them for a zombie next time he's on guard duty. Iolo then heads for a cluster of buildings that haven't been searched yet.
    ?.jpg
    Zombies must have mistook Iolo for one of them because when he stepped foot in front of the farmhouse they swarmed him. Fighting them off improved his edged weapon specialization to level 6. He's also able to take out two bloaters with his gun before they can get closer. Using a nearby survey point to look around he also takes the time to shoot a few zombies and improve his shooting skill to level 2.
    ?.jpg
    He finds two infestations in some open fields and marks them on the map. He then decides to go help a survivor that has gotten himself in some trouble because he's such a nice guy, not because he made a loud noise while searching a storage building and had to leave before a lot more zombies swarmed him again.
    ?.jpg
    He finds Joel fighting off a lot of zombies and since he can't get a clear shot on any of the zombies, starts slicing them up with his saber. The zombies go down down but Iolo's saber is damaged. Joel is then escorted back to his group that are living dangerously close to the infestations that Iolo spotted.
    ?.jpg
    Okay, yeah. Joel's group must be crazy to be living at a farmhouse with an infestation in the barn next to it.
    ?.jpg
    Iolo decides to help clear out the infestations and goes back to the farmhouse he was originally going to search to set up an outpost. With that done he swaps out his damaged saber for an industrial cutting machine blade and grabs his grenade launcher. Joel wants to clear out the infestation next to his group and Iolo agrees to help. While going back to his truck he has to fight off a group of zombies that have gathered around it and a feral zombie that had come up from behind. Meeting up with the other two survivors they get ready to clear out the infestation. The barn is too cramped for Iolo to use his grenade launcher so he saves his ammo and the three of them take out the zombies up close.
    ?.jpg
    With the infestation cleared Iolo searches the barn and finds some loose ammunition and another brush axe. He then goes home to drop off supplies and to get someone to help him clear the two other infestations. He was going to ask PLA for help but she's resting because Capsaicin misfired his gun and accidentally shot her, she'll live but is in no shape to help Iolo. He then asks Magic Pink to help him out and he's ready to go.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    The first infestation is easily taken out by a single shot from the grenade launcher, sadly Iolo doesn't have any more ammo for it and the next one has to taken out with melee weapons. Fighting zombies in an open field is difficult when you have to get close but Iolo and Magic Pink are able to kill the zombies before they take too much damage. With the infestations cleared the two of them go back home to get some sleep.

    I know this update is a little early but that is because I need some feedback from folks. We'll be using the RV soon to go the next difficulty level and we won't be taking everyone along. The survivor list has been updated and I will post the list here as well but I need people to vote on five survivors that you want to see come with us to the next area. Just post your list of five survivors that you want to come along and I'll take the five survivors that have the most votes. If enough people are able to vote we'll use the RV in the next update but if there haven't been that many votes it will happen in the update after that.

    In regards to your questions.
    The voice thing most likely is not a bug, unless the women have the same voice as Marcus, then it's a bug. Otherwise your survivors were cursed (blessed?) by the RNG gods to have his voice. There are not that many voices for survivors so most likely some of them will have the same voice, for example Iolo and Elvenshae both have the same voice that Marcus does. I've never had a game where all of them have the same voice but that doesn't mean it can't happen. As for the infestation they can sometimes form in open areas but it might be a glitch, I would go over to the area and see if there are any zombies there. If there are none then it is a glitch, but if there is a group of zombies there then that is just where an infestation happened.

    My votes:

    Elvenshire (fighting, cook)
    Lolo (fighting, cook, farmer)
    Buttcleft (fighting, research)
    Skiddles (counseling, leadership)
    PLA (scavenging, construction)

    Lets us keep our best fighters and I think all our important skill sets, while giving us a bonus to morale and no penalties.

    Say we get voted off the island and don't make the RV. Are you going to continue the [Let's Play] and we'll show up as other random survivors? If this is the case, can we change our preferred skills?

    As in, replace my survivors Revolver skills with another like Rifles?

Simply sign up with a different name and the necessary information like you did the first time and if I get any more survivors I will use the name. As always I want people who haven't signed up to feel free to do so, and they will be used before someone who has already named a survivor.
    If your survivor is left behind you can use the same name but you'll get some weird looks from those that came in the RV. So yes, you can come back. I would prefer if you submitted a new name but you don't have to.

    Well, that's a bummer that we can't take everyone. (but yea, we cant quite fit 15 people *and* supplies onto a rinky dink RV.)
    I kinda like keeping our nicknames, it lets us keep an idea of who's who in this LP. Besides, I know people as Nocturnal, Iolo, and NotoriusBEN, not Adeline, Damien, Aiden.
    You could just say that everyone else just made their way to the new county on their own. (Not very survival smart, but hey, zombies or raiders could make you pick up and leave ASAP)

    Ok, voting list. I'm gonna go with El Skid on this, even with him sneaking his own name into the list. They have unique skills, or have fighting skills beyond others in addition to the unique skills.

    Elvenshire (fighting, cook)
    Lolo (fighting, cook, farmer)
    Buttcleft (fighting, research)
    Skiddles (counseling, leadership)
    PLA (scavenging, construction)


    -And resigning up for the new area.

    Obviously, I, Elvenshae should be part of the group. I am, after all, a Badass. I've got the sticker that says so.

    Next, we should bring Yolo, because if we don't bring him, he'll probably grenade the bus as we try to drive away.

    Nocren has to be part of the group because ... HAH! Sorry, I couldn't get through that with a straight face. He's a jerk; leave 'im.

    Instead, let's bring Buttcleft; we need some riding-on-a-dolphin action where we're going.

    PLA has proven really good at "finding" things, so I'd rather she come and find things for us than stay and find things from us.

    Although it's going to break my heart, I think we have to leave Big McLargehuge behind* so that Skiddles can fit.

    What kind of amuses me in all this is that the PC group is basically running around taking everything that isn't nailed down and yet the area still has NPC survivors trying to get buy, too.

    Does this game take place in Galt's Gulch?

    Update 15: Last look around.
    ?.jpg
    Not much happened while we were away. Elvenshae found a bunch of food and that's it.
    ?.jpg
    Starting off Magic Pink grabs a rifle so he can improve his shooting skill and a large backpack. Since we're going to use the RV soon it doesn't make sense to improve the warehouse so the only thing to do is look for better equipment. That means enough large backpacks for everyone moving on and any assault weapons, rifles, and shotguns; we already have more than we can carry of pistols and revolvers. Any high durability blunt, edged, or heavy weapons are a plus as well.
    ?.jpg
    The first spot Magic Pink is going to search is a camping site, hopefully it was used by hunters and has either a shotgun or rifle. All he finds is a small backpack and some food, no weapons in sight. Moving down the road he goes to search a house, Nocturnal found her Russian friend in the house next door so hopefully he has the same kind of luck. The zombies outside of the house make some good target practice and Magic Pink's shooting skill goes up to level 2.
    ?.jpg
    Inside he finds a bunch of blunt weapons, but no guns. He fills his backpack and goes to an outpost to drop it off and after doing so gets a request for help killing an armored zombie.
    ?.jpg
    On his way to the meeting area a feral jumps him. It knocks him down but after knocking it off and he gets to his feet the brush axe makes short work of the freak's neck. Capsaicin is having some trouble with a screamer that showed up and Magic Pink takes aim, making sure not to hit Capsaicin, and blows the screamer's head off. The zombies attacking Capsaicin are then killed and they start hunting for the armored zombie.
    Once they spot the SWAT zombie they are easily able to kill it. Magic Pink goes to search another house and his fighting skill goes up to level 6 from fighting the zombies he finds. The only things of use he finds are a large backpack and some .357 caliber rounds. The next spot to search is an office building, three floors worth of places to search. Magic Pink's wits skill goes up to level 3 after finding some 9 mm and 7.62 mm rounds.
    ?.jpg
    A call comes in for a diversion and Magic Pink grabs an alarm clock and then starts driving over.
    ?.jpg
    (I accidentally crashed into a tree, whenever I get into a car the frame rate drops a bit so I try not to make sharp turns or jerk the wheel so that this doesn't happen.)
    He drives over a part of the way but then decides to leave the car where it is and run over to improve his cardio. The run over improves his cardio to level 2. Using the alarm clock the zombies are lured to the warehouse and Big Mc thanks Magic Pink for the help.
    ?.jpg
    Lily calls before he gets home to say that Nocren is having issues controlling his anger and she thinks that with his counseling experience he might be able to help him. At home he grabs Nocren and takes him out to kill some zombies.
    MP: Tensions are running pretty high these days, huh?
    N: Suppose so.
    MP: You especially.
    N: I'm fine, alright?
    Arriving at a warehouse Magic Pink aims into the open door and shoots some of the zombies improving his shooting skill to level 3. Then the two of them go inside and clear out the rest of the zombies. They then start heading home.
    MP: Listen, whatever your problem is, you need to knock that shit off. You're starting to freak out the others.
    N: That why you wanted this little bit of quality time?
    MP: Alright, we're all stressed, but we can't afford to be at each other's throats, okay? So you can start playing nice, or you're out on your ass.
    At home Nocren goes to the sleeping area and Magic Pink decides to get some rest and has CoolJammer00 take over.
    ?.jpg
    He grabs a large backpack from the supply locker and sets out to search some more houses.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    Some zombies are drawn out by the sound of the truck and CoolJammer00 uses them to improve his shooting skill to level 2. In a house that he searches he finds a pair of 9 mm pistols and some heavy weapons but nothing too exciting. After he drops them off at an outpost he joins Nocturnal to take out an armored zombie. Killing the armored zombie is easy for them and Nocturnal goes back home.
    ?.jpg
    CoolJammer00 doesn't expect to find much in the remaining homes that haven't been looted and instead makes his way to the other side of the map.
    ?.jpg
    He passes by a lot of buildings along the way, including an interesting rest area, but doesn't make it all the way over there before someone needs his help. NotoriousBEN has gotten himself into trouble and needs someone to bail him out. CoolJammer00 finds him after driving all the way back and takes out the zombies threatening him.
    ?.jpg
    NotoriousBEN is dropped off at home and CoolJammer00 heads for another group of buildings that is a little bit closer this time so he might make it over there before having to be called back. He's able to make it over there and starts looking for a good building to search.
    ?.jpg
    He starts off looking in the post office and finds a shotgun and some ammo in the back. He debates making this building an outpost so he drop off supplies here but before he can make a decision an escort request comes in. Magic Pink needs some help getting home so CoolJammer00 drives back to do so. The new shotgun is put to use taking out some zombies but alerts every zombie that's less than a mile away. They both quickly jump into the car and drive home, hoping Iolo isn't on watchtower duty. CoolJammer00 drops the shotgun and ammunition in the supply locker then has Nocturnal take over for him so he can rest. She then makes her way to the first area that CoolJammer00 tried to make his way to.
    ?.jpg
    Once there she finds a perfect place to search. Inside she finds a revolver and rifle, along with some loose rounds. She then turns the building into an outpost so she can drop supplies off here. After that she goes to a survey point to look around the area.
    ?.jpg
    She spots an infestation and makes sure not to go near it. Her next stop is the post office, CoolJammer00 said he found a shotgun at a different one so she might be as lucky. Inside she finds another gun, but it's just a revolver. On her way back to the outpost Lily calls to say that no-one has seen Buttcleft for a while and hopes that Nocturnal can help find him. She drives back over near home and starts searching some houses looking for the historian.In the third house she searches she finds him and then escorts him home. Afterwards they both go to bed to get some sleep.

    Last call for people to vote on who's going on to difficulty level 2. Next update we're going to use the RV.

    I mean, for comedy. Gotta have some skill, but this is a Let's Play. Shit won't get good until Nutpuncher shows up anyway.

    Magic Pink's out because, let's face it, if he can't drive a car on empty roads (Honestly officer, I swerved to miss it, but that tree just jumped in front of me!), then I wouldn't want him anywhere near the RV.

    Also, I think people left behind should keep their old names. I mean, it could be fun to see what kind of shit happens with their new personalities since they had to chase after the RV. On foot. Through the zombie forest. With no supplies.

    Won't somebody think of the drama?

    I thought that the driving backwards trick was changed to still damage your vehicle. Although yes vehicles can easily take out hoards, I haven't shown it but I've taken out at least a few dozen hordes with vehicles. I find it easier on the car if you use the door to take them out, it doesn't seem to damage the car and as long as you don't hit an immovable object with your door it won't break. Also the station wagon isn't the first vehicle I've left behind because smoke was coming from the engine, it has happened to at least five other vehicles.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    it still damages your car, yes, and eventually your engine will take damage from all the hits. But your car body will be mangled much more by the time your engine starts steaming and smoking.
    Plus if zombies grab on, they wont be doing claw damage to the area where your engine is, as well as being much more instinctive to hit the gas to get rid of the zombie instead of slamming the brakes and hitting reverse in the heat of the moment. (like busting up 4 hordes that met up at a crossroads in my game.)

  • OrivonOrivon Registered User regular
    Update 16: It begins anew.
    ?.jpg
    Lily: We can fit a few people and supplies on the RV. It'll be tight, but we can manage. Everybody else, take whatever you want from the stockpiles. After what you've been through, you deserve it. Good luck out there.
    The first thing to do is use the RV to leave the area (the top five survivors going on are Elvenshae, Iolo, PLA, Skiddles, and Buttcleft, I then choose to bring along Nocturnal as my own pick). Starting off each survivor takes a large backpack and fills it with useful supplies (foolish move to do so, you'll see why later).
    ?.jpg
    With six survivors on the RV it is full (there was no option to strap someone to the roof so Big Mc stays here). They say their final farewells to Nocren, Capsaicin, Lucia, CoolJammer00, Magic Pink, NotoriusBEN, and Big Mc before starting out.
    ?.jpg
    (This is not exactly something I wanted to see right before we left, poor Big Mc.)
    ?.jpg
    This is our score from difficulty level one. There isn't really a point to it but it does give some neat statistics. Note that the zombies killed does not include those run over with a car, if it did it would add at least 200 to the number killed. Also I don't believe the hordes destroyed counts those taken out by outposts.
    ?.jpg
    The RV breaks down and we have to find a new home. The area is a bit more hostile than we're used to, there are more zombies roaming around and freaks appear to happen more often. Elvenshae is sent out with the task to find a new home for the group.
    ?.jpg
    He takes a car and drives over to the other side of the valley to look for a suitable building. He finds a church that is big enough for us but we need some materials first so it can be made safe. At the first warehouse he searches there are no materials but he does find a rifle. The next warehouse has some materials and he drives it back to the RV to put it in the supply locker. We still need a bit more materials and El heads for another warehouse. He has to get out of the car because of a bloater and gets ready to kill it with his shotgun. He kills it but in his haste accidentally fires both rounds, the blast draws quite a few zombies to the area and he runs away before he gets swarmed. At the warehouse are the rest of the materials needed and he runs them back to the RV, making sure to avoid the group of zombies he drew with the shotgun.
    ?.jpg
    With all of the materials needed he drives over to the church to make sure its clear.
    ?.jpg
    He's able to clear the area after taking out about a dozen zombies with his cutlass. The rest of the group then move in, start cleaning up the church, and making it into a home. Work is first started on cleaning up the old pastor's room to make it a sleeping area and cleaning up the kitchen. With the materials left from the move work is started on building a medical area. El then goes down the road a bit to search a house and turn it into an outpost so the home is protected. Inside he finds some food that he loads into a rucksack before making it an outpost and then drops it off at home. After dropping off the food El has Nocturnal take over so he can get some rest.
    ?.jpg
    The outpost El set up is protecting part of the road, and when we get some fuel most of it, but another outpost is needed to protect the rest of it. Noc is going to make a nearby house an outpost after taking care of some hordes that are too close.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    One horde is taken care of (Happy now @NotoriusBEN?) but there is another one in the way.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    With the other horde taken care of she goes to help Buttcleft hunt a bloated zombie.
    ?.jpg
    ?.jpg
    They find it in the first house they search and Noc shoots it in the er... back and Buttcleft goes home while she searches a nearby shed hoping to find some fuel to expand the outpost's range. She finds three stacks of materials but no fuel. She also finds some brackets that Lily just called and said were needed for the medical area construction. After running home one of the stacks, the brackets, and fighting off a horde attacking the home; Iolo wants her help with a goods exchange with another group of survivors. He wants to trade one of our cases of ammunition for five units of fuel, he just wants her along to have some backup just in case.
    ?.jpg
    The exchange site is quite a ways away and the two of them exit the church through the back door to avoid an approaching horde. They avoid the horde but are a ways away from the road and have run past quite a few zombies and a few bloaters.
    ?.jpg
    One of the freaks got a little bit too close and Noc had to shoot it but the sound drew all of those zombies down there. Once they reach the road they are able to find a truck and drive the rest of the way to the exchange. After taking out the few zombies in the area they are able to meet with Peyton and make the trade. They load the fuel into the back of the truck and start driving home.
    ?.jpg
    On the way home Noc uses the back of the truck to take out another horde, while Iolo just sits and calmly watches. A bit later Iolo starts talking
    I: It's funny, I used to get roped into playing Santa at the company Christmas party every year. Man, I hated it. The costume was hot, the beard was itchy, and if the boss thought you weren't suitably excited about whatever crappy little novelty gift came out of the sack, he'd chew your ass out for "bringing down morale." People used to hide when they saw me coming. Can you believe that? Grown-ass men and women hiding from Santa Claus.
    His story earns him the scary Santa trait and the two of them arrive at the home and drop off the fuel. Some of the fuel is used to expand the outpost's range and Noc heads to the sleeping area to get some rest.
    ?.jpg
    Skiddles takes over and goes out to build another outpost. Searching the house yields some 5.56 mm rounds and shotgun shells along with some pain relievers. He them and then turns the building into an outpost. Lily calls to say that someone wants to join us and he goes over to escort them home. At a warehouse he kills the few zombies attacking a survivor and greets Ed "Felix Nutpuncher" Jones. Together they load the truck Skiddles drove out here with some materials from the warehouse and then drive home. On the way back Felix starts talking.
    F: If you ignore the rampant destruction and flesh-eating dead people, this place is kinda quaint. I wasn't even planning on coming here, you know. Shoulda been on a flight to visit my folks, but my mom, she's got this medical marijuana prescription, right? So the dispensary she uses gets raided a week before my trip. Anyway, she asks me to bring her some of "the product." So I have to drive instead. Car breaks down just outside of Trumbull and this was the cheapest place the tow truck could take me to. Damn, I shoulda told that guy to haul my ass to the city.
    Felix earns the loyal son trait and they arrive at home and Skiddles drops the materials off in the supply locker while Felix introduces himself to the rest of the group.
    ?.jpg
    We have joining us Ed "Felix Nutpuncher" Jones. He has the team player skill which means he is less likely to have conflicts with others. The accountant, loved "idol", go big or go home, and Trumbull local traits don't do anything useful. The nimble trait gives him the awesome reflexes skill that improves stamina regeneration rate.

    Sorry for the late update folks.
