IC-OMAHA-Power Failure(Don/Declan/Adam/Emilio/etc)

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...

IC-OMAHA-Power Failure(Don/Declan/Adam/Emilio/etc)

Postby Mr. Handy » Sat Jan 17, 2009 4:19 am

Z-Day - 4:17 PM Central Time - Brooks High School, Omaha, Nebraska
On the north stairs, ground floor-
Donald Woodridge pushed his wheelbarrow through the fire door, followed quickly by Alvin Drummond and Murray the dog. Inside the wheelbarrow Donald had left his axe and chainsaw, and he carried a fuel can and his toolkit. Alvin had a bottle and a hatchet in his hands, and a hammer hanging from his belt. Murray followed him faithfully. The stairs led up to the second floor and the roof beyond that, and down to the basement. Once downstairs, the generator could be found through the first door on the right. Everything was dark below, however.

Declan McLeod, the shop teacher, entered from the hallway door with Kyle Rogers in tow. Declan had a toolkit as well. Behind them came Jerry Law, the security guard. From Jerry's walkie-talkie came the voice of Adam Donnelly: "Helene, this is Adam. I've got my toolkit up here. I'll head down to the generator, but I'm not sure exactly where it is. Someone will need to take my lookout post up here. I also wouldn't mind some backup when I go to the basement. Over."

"Rachel Cohen is on her way up to the roof to take your place," replied Dr. Saunders on the radio. "I don't know if anyone else in the lab can help you with the generator, but maybe you'll see someone on the way down. The stairs from the roof go all the way down to the basement, where the generator is. I believe it's the first door on the right. If you see anyone else on your way down, either bring them with if they can help, or send them upstairs if they can't."

Spoiler:
Donald and Declan each have a flashlight in their toolkits, and Jerry has one on his belt as well. You'll need a flashlight to see down there, as there are no windows.

Alvin said, "I know some Mechanical Repair so you think I could be of help on the generator?"

Donald waved a tool kit to the others they were meeting up with. "Dont' you worry too much about that old generator. I've gone more than a few rounds with it in the past. I can show you right where it is." He continues heading down the stairs and says, "Follow me."

-We need to be fast, I don't know I long the fance will resist and if they crash, restoring the power will be useless.

Donald nodded, saying "Well, I don't know any quicker way down there. But with as many mechanics as we have on the job, it shouldn't take long to fix it."

Murray sticks close to Alvin. He is glad that the smell is now gone.

Alvin said, "Lets go then. But I do not know the way really well so maybe Donald should lead?"

Kyle Rogers:

"Whatever the plan, let's get moving. I'll watch our backs." Kyle says and then turns his back to the group and scans their surroundings.

Donald thought about it and asked the others behind him, "Did anyone make sure that propped open emergency exit was shut? Someone should probably do that before the gates fail."

He continued on his merry way toward the generator room, picking out the right key to unlock the door.

In the north stairwell, basement-
Donald led the way downstairs, using his flashlight to illuminate the way ahead. Declan also took out his flashlight, and Jerry Law had one too.

"Getting the power on will still be useful even if the fence is breached," said Declan. "Even if they knock holes in it, if they touch the fence at all on their way through, they'll still get zapped. Plus it helps to be able to see." He glanced at Alvin. "You have any experience with electrical work, youngster?" Though Alvin was getting on in years, Declan McLeod was significantly older still. It was a wonder he hadn't retired yet.

As they descended, a new voice spoke on the radio: "Dr. Saunders, Rachel Cohen here, we have a major disaster on the stairwell and I need help. Adam Donnelly has cracked-up and I believe requires specialist attention; what about Dr. Liz Somerville, could she do something to bring Adam to his senses?"

"Yes, that's a good idea," replied Dr. Saunders. "She's on her way. Jerry Law, if you can hear me, I need you to start moving anyone who can't help with the generator upstairs, where it's safer."

The four men, one teenager, and one dog soon reached the bottom of the stairs. Donald opened the door and entered the hall beyond, the others right behind him.

In the basement hall-
The group walked into the hall, the flashlight beams picking out three doors on the right and one on the left. In the distance, the hall rounded a corner to the left. "There," said Declan shining his light on the first door on the right. "That's the generator room. The door will be locked, but you've got the keys, Jerry me lad. Sure and you've got them too, Donald."

-Ok, I will just open the door of the generator and I will go there- he answers to Dr Sanders
Jerry looks for the right key and then open the door.

"Allow me," Donald said, who was already working on getting the right key on their way down the stairs. He plunged the key into the key hole and threw open the door stepping in and aside as he did, then shined his flashlight about for any obvious signs of trouble. He wasn't sure what he might find, that generator had a wide variety of issues over the years. Donald was hoping it was something he had seen in the past to make short work of it.

Alvin petted Murry and said, "I have some limited work with electronics but mostly on mechanical repair so I can help if need be."

Kyle drifts to the back of the group and makes an attempt to slip away from the group and up the stairwell unnoticed.

-Ok, so can I go now? Just tell me who you need to stay here to help you, so I can take the others in security.

"Sir if it helps you any. I may be able to help here but I do know that I served my country in Vietnam and I can train others to fight so if you want I can go upstairs with the rest and train them there. Would you want that?"

Spoiler:
Your Sneak roll prevented you from being heard, but since other characters are now also on their way back upstairs, you'll need to roll Hide to avoid being seen. Even if you fail, they'll still have to roll Spot Hidden in order to see you.
