Stuff that happened.
« on: 19:24, Tuesday 04 Oct, 2011. »
Chaplain:

In the top of the tallest building left standing in all of Hatfield, a lone figure watches the streets below.
Sat in a chair, with a scoped rifle set up against the window ledge.
The sun is rising...

Morning. Almost time for sleep. Quiet night.
Voices on the stairs. Not neighbours.
Marquess III's men. Arguing. Scared.
Shotgun. Open door. Wait.

Stepping out onto the landing, armed, but relaxed, the figure watches the two men below, and waits for them to realise they're no longer alone. One proves himself braver, or perhaps more impatient than the other, and makes his move up the stairs.
Falsely confident greetings are given, and the reason for their visit becomes clear.

Invitation given. III needs security. Come to The House. Today.
Visitors leave. Time for sleep.

The one known as Chaplain lays down the shotgun gently on the desk, and settles down to rest.
The room is barely furnished. A desk, a table, a chair.
A pile of blankets and cloth in one corner serve as a bed.
There are various boxes and crates along one wall.
Some are open exposing their contents of ammuntion and food, in various states of supply.



Few hours later, Chaplain leaves for The House.
A few mostly-harmless traps are set to discourage visitors, and one to show if anyone passed.
On reaching the lower level stairs, the "neighbours" are out in the hallway.
They respectfully clear the way, and are acknowledged in return.

On arriving at Hatfield House, the armed guards are expecting a visitor.
They move aside and allow entry.
At the top of the driveway, the Marquess himself stands giving orders to some men.

...Work in progress...

Move off road - let crowd pass.
Old man hungry - no food to give.
Arrive at the plant - scout & settle in to wait for Hammer & co.
5 towers with machine gun turrets.
Main gates are guarded but open. Guards are armed but look bored.
Hammer & Weaver chat with guards, then a superior. Deal is agreed.
Head home. Crowd in streets below apartment.
Isle handcuffed to a railing, guarded by Baby. Flanked by Shithead and Monk.
Hammer & Weaver discuss situation with Rourke. Crowd disperses.
Radio crackles to life- Hammer wants me to sit on jury duty at Isle's murder trial tomorrow. Nothing else planned as yet.
Below, Weaverbird tries to talk to Rourke, who walks away. Have him in sight- but miss intentionally.
Changes his mind when a bullet hits the pavement just ahead of him, spitting out a small cloud of dust.
Takes Weaver to see his boss, H.
Don't trust them.
Follow them both to the Church of No Hope.
Rourke and Weaver enter past several armed guards.
Fire escape, and piping. Rooftop.
Not alone. 4 armed guards. Looking for me.
Need cover. Air duct vent. Climb inside.
Listen for voices, slow going through vents.
Familiar voice, can't make out words. Get closer.
Weaver and H in room below. Discussing Prim. Weaver ends conversation by denying her to H.
"That is...most unfortunate..."
4 thugs move into the room. Weaver's in trouble!

Shot out the lights. H stands still in the darkness, arms folded and eyes closed.
Night vision shows one of the thugs getting close to Weaverbird. He dies.
Weaver makes for the door, but on reaching the narrow slip of light, he hastily changes his mind.
He drops his radio in his hurry. The light on the corner of it tells me it's switched on.
As he heads to a curtain on the wall another of H's men gets too close. He dies.
A crowd enters the room at the other door.
One of the minions passes by below my hiding space.
I drop onto him from the ceiling, and leave him laying in the dark as I follow Weaverbird into a doorway behind a curtain.
There's no door to close behind us, but none of them have seen us leave.
I find a solid concrete tunnel shaft with a metal stairwell decending into the darkness.
At the bottom of the staircase I can hear movement. I call down, using the radio. "Weaver, over here."
He recognises my voice, and hopefully those behind us are distracted by his lost radio.
It is dark, so I guide him down the stairs. There is a light at the bottom.
Removing the goggles so as not to be blinded, we enter the door.
Through to door is a greenhouse of sorts- with rather suspect fertilliser- ashen human corpses.
Passing rows and rows of plants under the UV lights, I recognise a few- Potatoes, Foxgloves, and the other kind of grass.
While Weaver plays a song, I pick the padlock holding the exit closed.
The lock clicks open as Weaver finishes his song, and we leave.
I am relieved to find we're in the tunnel, in the junkyards below the town.
After safely escorting Weaverbird back to his people at College Lane, I go looking for Hammer, and find Monk.
Weaverbird plays a gig, but is booed off- some of H's men are starting trouble in the crowd.
Hammer is told that the radio frequency is no longer private, it seems he's had some problems of his own.
Sounds like some of his men ran into trouble at the Watling Street roundabout, but it's all over now.
The trial is in the morning, so I head home to make preparations.

A week has passed and the trial hasn't yet gone ahead.
The Barnfields have been into town, and attacked the highrise.
Rum's mother was murdered.
I have trained a couple of the tenants in the lower levels with some of my spare weapons, and left them in their care.
Keeping an eye on Rum. The mayor is keeping him busy, which is good for him. Also I showed him how to rig an alarm trap. He had a box of things with him, but I didn't ask to see them.
Hammer came over looking for me, to see if I would back him up- he's expecting more trouble, from more of those he encountered at Watling Street roundabout- of course- but not today.
With the intel I have now, tonight I will pay the Barnfields a visit.
After shitting on my doorstep, they should be expecting me.
Would hate to keep them waiting...

Snuck in at dusk, through the maze of traps and assorted nasty things.
The grenade tripwires were a generous gift.
Perfect distraction.
After the zombies wandered out to see what the noise was, I got past the guard on the back door, and onto the roof.
Another grenade into the fields, and took care of the flaregun before it became a nuisance. Pity, would have been good loot.
Dropped the last grenade through a roof hatch. Blew the guy with the radio and his minion away.
Shot hits the roof nearby. Time to move.
Dropped into the grenade-cleared room. Radios. Computers. Electronics. Might be worth something. Hammer might like this.
A shouty woman came looking for the medium rares. A sharp kiss with the butt of the shotgun made her quiet.
Left her in the blackened room, out cold. Probably. Shut the door.
The morons are still in the yard.
Who else is in here?

Chaplain haunts the Barnfield Estate for a whole week, taking them out one by one...
xD
Might even make use of their incinerator too.

After incinerating the evidence, was out for a few days recovering from smoke inhalation. *cough*
=p

Had a weird moment- could see the enemies behind the door through the wall.
Jumped out, shotgunned their boss in the face.
Got stabbed a bit.
Stabbed them all more.
Then they ran away, so I shot them for good measure.
After taking care of one particularly awkward old guy, there are only 3 guys cowering behind a barricade downstairs.
There are 9 women/children behind them.
Having set the example I set out to show, I head back to town- was that gunfire I heard?

Walking towards Weaverbird's camp, another awkward premonition. (Primonition?)
The mute child is sick, black slime that makes the grass wither and die.
Hammer's medic, Shithead is attending to her.
Weaver and Hammer are discussing something.
As I arrive there is a strange sense of dejavu, as life repeats itself before my eyes.
I tell Shithead to clean the black off of himself at once, seeing what it has done to the grass.
Then I pull out my shotgun and blast Hammer in the chest.
My shotgun is on my back, not in my hand. I pull it out to put it on the floor.
I find it hard to put it down, but don't shoot Hammer with it either.
Hammer notices me holding a weapon, and draws his gun and machete.
"Chaplain, did you see something?"

Missed a bit!

It seems there's been a change in the leadership around here, and that Diamond has taken control of Hatfield.
H offers to let Chaplain free, and return what was taken, in exchange for killing Hammer.
He explains that Hatfield will be dead in the next 24 hours or so, and so probably will he.
After some thought, Chaplain accepts.
On receiving the missing guns, knives and assorted other stuff, Chaplain walks out into the hall only to be confronted with Hammer!
H: "I want you to kill him!"
Hammer: "I want to kill him!"
Chaplain: *shrug*
Hammer: *blows H's brains out*
Chaplain takes a faded photograph from the body's pocket, looks at it, and then lets it fall to the floor.
The creased picture of a young child disappears beneath the growing pool of blood.
Hammer and Chaplain leave.
They go to the garage to pick up some transport, and after some persuasion, leave with two bikes.
After almost being hit by a stray mortar, they arrive at Weaverbird's camp.
Most of his people have left, and he is to be found alone with Prim, who is looking miraculously better.
It is agreed that it's time to leave the sinking ship that is this town, and that they should signal the populace to move out.
Unfortunately the controls for the sirens are back at the University.
Chaplain has an alternative strategy- a beacon.
Heading back to the high rise (for probably the last time) and warning those in the marketplace below, Chaplain clears out the tower block- and then sets a series of explosives and assorted flammables at the top of it.
This goes off with a bang, and the flames quickly attract attention.
Weaver arrives and with Chaplain's assistance, they clear the citizens from the town.
"Bring only what you can carry, we leave now."
They head off to meet with Hammer and Weaver's followers on the road, and head off in search of the Western Paradise...

The End?
