IC-OMAHA-Bus Stopped(Becky/Lubacheks/dogs/Emilio/Don/Alvin)

The survivors from the T-Bone flee for the safety of Warren Air Force Base, while a lone woman struggles against all odds to stay alive in a very dangerous place. A small group of survivors races across Nebraska in a pickup truck. The helicopter group arrives in Omaha in a last ditch effort to save the world, but time is running out. Z-Day seems to last forever, but it will come to an end. The sun is getting lower, and night is coming...

Alvin grabbed the hammer which he put on his belt loop and the hatchet which he held in his left hand shfiting the bottle to his right. He figured that if it came to it he could always throw the glass bottle at something as well. He followed Donald.

In the rear parking lot-
Two gunshots rang out in the distance to the northwest as Donald, Alvin, and Murray ran inside. Emilio ran in through the door to the gym.

Spoiler:
Murray heard a kind of muffled scrabbling sound coming from the north side of the construction area, just east of the school. It was from the same location where he smelled the weaker scent of death and decay.

Spoiler:
I haven't had a post for Emilio, so I'm going to assume he follows his boss. Donald, Alvin, and Murray are moving to the thread linked below. Please stop reading the current thread at this point. Everyone else remains in the current thread.

Power Failure

In the gym-
As soon as Emilio entered the gym, Chuck kicked the chock out from the propped door and let it lock shut.

"Hey, that cop's still out there!" called Becky Clarke. "How's she s'posed to get in?"

"Not my problem," said Chuck, "but I don't want those things getting in here with us. Come on, let's get that generator operational." He led the way across the gym, most of which was taken up by a basketball court. On the east side was an athletic supply closet, and next to it was a set of stairs leading down into darkness, presumably to the locker rooms. On the west side of the gym was a set of double doors, where he was heading.

Emilio glanced at the stairs and followed towards the double doors. Something definitely wasn´t all right here... He adjusted the his utility belt with screwdrivers. He selected the largest and flipped it around in his hand and listened to their steps echo in the court.

In the gym-
Emilio noticed that the door to the atheletic supply closet was slightly ajar, and the padlock had been placed on the floor beside it. Inside he caught a glimpse of something shiny. Peering more intently, he could tell it was a fencing sword. He also caught sight of baseball bats through the crack.

"Eh, I´ll be right back!" Emilio heads off to retrieve a pair of sluggers.

In the gym-
"Hey, can I get one of those?" Becky asked, glancing back.

When Emilio opened the closet doors to retrieve the bats, he saw all sorts of atheltic gear inside. There were balls of every shape and size: footballs, basketballs, volleyballs, soccer balls, and tennis balls. Oddly, there were no baseballs. Perhaps they had already been removed. There were tennis racquets, hockey sticks, hockey pucks, a net that could be used for tennis or volleyball, and a couple of hockey goals. There were also four baseball bats, one aluminum and three wooden, including the two that he took. A rack contained various swords used by the fencing team: one saber, one foil, and two epees. Finally there were archery targets, two bows, and two dozen arrows in two large quivers.

Emilio turned and flung one of the two bats towards Becks, "Here, catch!" Then he evaluated the sports gear, and grabbed the bows and quivers and hurried over to the doors to the generator room.

Spoiler:
You can't carry that much. You can carry one bow and one quiver on your back (or two of either, but one's no good without the other). Additionally, the base skill for using a bow is only 1%, so you might not want them after all. The baseball bat you've already taken is a two-handed weapon, but you can carry it in one hand. However, if you want to use it, you'd have to drop what's in your other hand. You cannot leave the gym this turn, as you spent it collecting equipment. There are two ways to get to the generator. The stairs go down to the locker rooms, and while you can get to the rest of the basement from there, it's dark and you'd need a light source to see. The double doors, where the others are heading, lead to the north hallway. From there you can get to the north stairwell, which goes down to the basement. The generator room is near the stairs.

Spoiler:
I see. Then Emilio will only take the two bats and head to the double doors.

In the gym-
"Come on!" shouted Becky as she hurried to the double doors leading into the hall. "That generator won't fix itself!" Emily and Chuck followed, pulling Tiny after them.

Spoiler:
Everyone is moving to the thread below. Emilio, do not read the posts above the one that's linked. You can reach the north hall this round, but you won't be able to move beyond it yet. You'll enter the hall in your next post.
