IC-OMAHA-Dread(Adler/Ron/Miguel/Roy/Kate/Alvin/Murray/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...

"Yeaaaah!" says an excited Keith as another bullet strikes the zombie.

Cafeteria

Roy shuffles through the cafeteria cursing the pain but attracted to the sounds of conflict beyond, Coach's motivating slogans running through his head like mantras.

Alvin got up and petted Murry. He then slowly advanced to the kitchen door.

Spoiler:
Keith's second shot will finish off that zombie, but the first one missed, and at this point the zombie is close enough to Miguel that you'll need to roll Luck to make sure it doesn't hit him by mistake.

Satisfactorily the zombie is kaput. Luckily the first shot of Keith's, though dangerously close to Miguel, passes by him.

Spoiler:
Keith had to roll Luck because he was firing into melee combat. Jerry attacked hand-to-hand, so he does not need to roll Luck. The only way he could have hit Miguel by mistake would have been if he had rolled a critical miss (96 or higher).

So, Jerry will take Miguel inside as fast as he can.

In the cafeteria-
Murray followed Alvin and Roy into the kitchen.

In the kitchen-
Kate, Sharon, and Ron rushed outside. Kate reloaded her pistol as she ran.
Spoiler:
Anyone in the kitchen cannot see or attack the zombie yet. Roy and Keith, If you go outside, you'll need to roll Sanity for seeing it with a Sanity loss of 0/1d10. Alvin already lost 10 points for seeing zombies, so he does not need to roll.

In the construction area-
The zombie that Keith had shot stopped moving mere inches from Miguel, but the other one arrived from the north. Kate recoiled in horror, her mind overwhelmed, but her surging adrenaline spurred her to action anyway. Sharon Kaplan was also frightened a good deal, and she could not handle it. All she could do was wail in despair. Only Ron Moore was unaffected by its presence.

The zombie staggered closer, heading right for Jerry, but it stumbled and fell at his feet. Principal Adler rushed in and swung his bat at its head, missing by just a hair.

Spoiler:
Jerry, if you want to try to pick Miguel up and run inside, you'll need to roll your STR of 14 against his SIZ of 13 on the Resistance Table, giving you a 55% chance. Whether you succeed or fail, the zombie will attack you. You should also roll Dodge just in case if you do this.

If you decide to attack the zombie instead, you have a -5 penalty if you want to try to hit it in the head. You cannot roll Dodge if you attack, but you may try to parry its bite. To do this, make a second roll against your weapon skill, this time without any penalty.

Keith marches forward in an attempt to help in the rescue of Miguel and to protect Jerry. The sight of another zombie is a jolt, but the effect is not too shocking. "Quick, Jerry, hurry, we can do it."

Spoiler:
I haven't seen a post for Roy, so I'm gong to assume he goes outside toward the fighting, since that's where he was heading.

In the kitchen-
Murray and Roy also ran outside through the open door, following Alvin and Keith.

In the construction area-
Kate fired, hitting the zombie in the leg for massive damage and sending it sprawling. Coach Ron Moore rushed forward and slashed its head with his saber, lopping it off at the neck. The headless corpse fell onto the concrete, twitching. The severed head landed next to it, its teeth still gnashing but unable to bite anyone.

Murray and Roy emerged a second later. Jerry carried Miguel back to the kitchen door and inside.

"Nicely done, Coach!" said Adler.

"It was a team effort, boss," said the coach modestly.

Adler put an arm around his vice principal. "Sharon, it's over," he said gently. "I need you back now, okay?"

Sharon just continued crying.

Construction Area

Image

Roy grins and butts shoulders with Coach Moore in their customary way, but winces in pain with the contact,

"Hooa-agh. 'No quarter,' Coach! ...Ow."

Still wincing, Roy looks up and down the wall of the school and around the construction area for any more zombies.

Alvin said to Murry, "VC are gone VC are gone." He entered the kitchen once more.

"Is it all over? Phew! That was exciting, I mean, is everybody okay?" Keith corrects himself.
He goes to help Miguel.

Looking around at the zombie corpses he winces, "Urgh, disgustin'!"

His gaze follows Alvin, "I wonder if that guy is right in the head?" Keith thinks.
