  • At the end of the day, Vincent lets Kurt know about the groups plans to head to St. Augustine the next day.
  • That night, as the group sleeps in the Safehouse, we are awakened by sirens and gunfire coming from campus.
    • Vincent turns the walkie-talkie on and hears that zombies are storming the east side of campus.
      • They’ve stormed the eastern wall of the campus.
  • We get in Vincent’s truck and the Humvee and head to the eastern side of campus.
    • The battle is happening at the intersection of Newell Drive & Museum Road
    • We get through the gate and speed through campus to the battle.
  • It’s a massive battle. Hundreds of zombies, attacking with weapons (knives & clubs).
    • There are, at least, a few “super-zombies” in the group. They are hanging back amongst the others.
    • Vincent uses an action point to gain a “psychic insight” into how best to defeat the zombies.
      • Taking out the “super-zombies” will leave the hoard in disarray and easier to defeat.
  • The plan!
    • Take the Humvee into the horde, going after the super-zombies.
    • Vincent drives, Eric is in the bed of the truck, with the machine gun. The dogs are there with him.
    • We’ll plow through the horde enough to get within one range increment of a super-zombie.
      • Then Eric will use the machine gun to try to take out the super-zombie.
      • There are more than a dozen super-zombies.
  • We head into the horde.
    • We get close enough (and stay moving fast enough) to try to run down a super-zombie.
    • It works and then we finish off the first super-zombie with the machine-gun.
    • The next super-zombie is tougher, but we manage to take it out.
    • The third super-zombie gets taken out.
    • Eric spots a humanoid-monster heading towards us.
      • 10’ tall, hunched-over, claws, glowing eyes, short tentacles on its shoulders
      • We drive out of the horde of zombies and lure the monster away.
      • We kite it for a couple rounds and do plenty of damage to it.
      • It turns and runs. We pursue and then it jumps through a widow and into a dorm.
      • We stop and chase it through the dorm.
      • We catch up to it as it tries to beat down a door.
      • It’s wounds are healing as we watch. Curses!
      • It hurts Sammi-Jo badly, but the dogs manage to take it down!
      • It’s wounds are still healing, even with multiple coup de grace each round.
      • Vincent realizes that massive cellular damage (acid immersion, radiation, or fire) is needed.
      • We drag it outside the dorm and use six shots from the flamethrower to finally kill it.
  • We head back to the horde.
    • Sadly, the horde has broken through the second barricade (where we were) and now everything is in chaos.
    • Non-combatants are being told to hole up where they are.
    • Combatants are being told to regroup back at the Stadium.
    • We start to head to the Stadium, but want to pick up Vincent’s truck first.
    • Near the truck is a group of a dozen-or-so zombies.
      • They are all bunched up.
    • We plan on attacking them.
    • When we drive up, so Eric can flamethrower the zombies.
    • When we get close, the zombies make a break for us and reveal a brain-sucker!
    • It tries to stun us, and gets Sammi-Jo, Eric, and the dogs.
    • Note: Doc Tanner had to us an Action Point to succeed on her save.
    • Zombies swarm the Humvee, throwing themselves upon it.
    • We pull away, Zorya gets on the machine gun and manages to hit the brain-sucker.
      • This kills the dozen-plus normal zombies around brain-sucker.
      • This doesn’t kill the two super-zombies flanking the brain-sucker.
    • The zombies on the Humvee drags Zorya off the truck. Then they all hop off the truck and go for her.
    • Doc Tanner mans the machine gun and shoots at the brain-sucker, but misses.
    • Vincent attempts to ram the super-zombies & brain-sucker, but only hits one super-zombie.
    • Doc Tanner misses with the machine gun again.
    • Note: Hannah-Sue Tanner had to us an Action Point to not jam the machine gun(!).
    • The super-zombies & brain-sucker begin approaching Zorya, who is pinned to the ground by the remaining zombies.
    • Doc Tanner hits with the machine gun.
    • Zorya gets away from the zombies pinning her to the ground.
    • Vincent attempts another ram attack and misses the super-zombies & brain-sucker, but hits all the normal zombies who had Zorya. They all die.
    • The brain-sucker attempts to stun us again, but we all make our Will saves!
    • Doc Tanner hits with the machine gun.
    • The brain-sucker (presumably) says in our minds, “Wait, I wish to bargain.” and hovers up into the air.
      • He doesn’t have one of the flying packs, however, so he’s just hovering upward.
    • Doc Tanner hits with the machine gun, but doesn’t take out the brain-sucker.
    • The brain-sucker says, “Fools, my brethren have arrived.”
      • With this, hordes of zombies, with a few brain-suckers with them, appear heading towards us.
    • Doc Tanner misses with the machine gun again.
    • Note: Hannah-Sue Tanner had to us an Action Point to not jam the machine gun, again(!).
    • Zorya plinks off a shot that hits and takes out the brain-sucker.
