Bikers! And not the Lance Armstrong kind.

In our previous installment of "Freeway Road Warrior But Not the Mel Gibson One Oh Hell Let's Call It Highway Warrior Instead", we were debating whether or not to raid the rotted corpse of the local DJ. Knowing the personal hygiene habits of your average radio personality and the virulence of the various organisms usually living on them, I'm dubious that searching this rotted husk is a good idea. Nonetheless, that's what we decided to do:

Do we want any med kits? Speak up in comments either way.


Despite our shockingly low Stealth score, somehow I actually rolled well for once and we got above a 9! Maybe the Austin air is blowing a fair wind on my dice ...

Wait a minute, why is it called Stealth if they meant Dexterity? We didn't hide from the bikers, we rolled out of the way. Whatever.

The good news is we're alive with no damage, and now we get to decide on the form our swift, savage justice will take!

Frankly I see us as more of the stand far away and shoot people type rather than up-close and personal, but maybe you're feeling especially Rambo-esque today.

    Take aim. We’ve been a pretty fair shot so far.

    Also, I’d say yes to med-kits, but I don’t know what we’d be dropping to take any.

  2. Dionne Jinn says:

    Med kits might be a good idea. Even if we avoided damage in this fight so far, someone might be hurt and need some first aid. But who was the idiot who left the door open to the bus?

  3. Trekkie says:

    I say try and shoot them. If we run to attack them hand-to-hand we’re more likely to get killed.

    Also, yes to med-kits. If we do run to attack the bikers we’ll probably need them afterwards. Or if the fight goes in another direction, probably not.

    Take the med-kits. And fire a gun, we’ve already died twice, and we’re not coming back again-again.

  5. DubbleYoo says:

    Yes to the med kits, as we’re about to take some damage.

    I vote to shoot, since I don’t think we could stand up to a stiff breeze, let alone a pair of bikers.

    As for the Stealth check, I’m assuming the check was to notice the bike coming up behind us, in a “you know how to be sneaky, so you know how to recognize someone else being sneaky” sort of way. Because the motorcycle was… sneaking up… behind us… yeah…

    I was going to join the crowd in favor of shooting people, then I remembered we really don’t have much ammo…

  7. X-stacy says:

    We shoot. We score. We hope.

    I think we can add “night watchman” to the list of things we’re absolute crap at accomplishing. With no distracting lights or noises from a town and none of our own vehicles running, we fail to notice motorcycles until they’re only a mile away? I can see headlights going up and down Mesa Verde, and that’s, like, ten miles from my house.

    Clearly, they really were sneaking up on us. I imagine it looked a lot like the way a cartoon wolf moves on exaggerated tip-toes from tree to light pole, only with more tires and less paws. Oh, well, at least they left the ninja tanks at home.

    Shootin’s quicker. And scarier.
    Screw the medkits. A radio station hasn’t got anything good for gunshot wounds.

    Knife vs gun. Hmmm hard to try to what i choose. I think now the best is tp attack them, and after see the consenquences.

  10. Bael says:

    I’m for shooting, because we seem to be crap at melee. As for the medkits, they are not backpack items. According to the action chart we saw in the second entry, we always have a medkit, and what we are picking up are two additional uses. We don’t have to drop anything.

  11. Hunter-Hunted says:

    Only a fool brings a knife to a gunfight!! Shoot the two and let’s hope it scares the rest of them off – ’cause we don’t have enough bullets to last this one out…

    Regarding the medkit, I say grab it. With our luck we might just survive this encounter only to realise we have an infected boo-boo on our knee, from all the dodging and sneaking, and die a few hours later..
