Re: Seattle: The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

The last thing I heard about this was someone acting in a role similar to a warlord. Getting protection money, goods, or services from people in exchange for protection from both his crew, and others. So I am going to go with that as a premise. I think bugging in in that situation could be dangerou...

Re: Designing a Structure for a Defensive Stand

Exterior block "garden" walls with rebar and filled with mortar, with or without a double wall and an 8" dirt infill depending on if you want to stop 50 cals. :p Can even get the pretty architectural block to keep it looking nice. Also the Picton route that allowed him to use a tunnel to flank intru...

Re: When is it time to bunker up?

Triggers and Actions. Like BOP says, until unrelated cases start popping up in your area, there's little to worry about (That is realistic) but once it does start, there are actions you start taking. For example, when unrelated cases start popping up in my city, I'm going to stop taking transit into...

Re: Escape from Hellview

Mitch could hear gunfire from the sciences building just across the courtyard. It was coming from inside somewhere, slightly muted, but unmistakable. Dozens, and the hundreds of zombies were pouring from every nook and cranny on campus and rushing to the front doors, several of them having fallen an...

I just finished a 5 hour drive through the Rockies in near blizzard conditions. I broke my own rule of heed travel warnings, but our vacation was over and we hand to get home.

Re: Escape from Hellview

Dukes pushed open the door to the Sciences building. It was dark inside, but the morning light poured in sufficiently to give some weak illumination. This was the main entry foyer, and a large open area was overlooked by a second floor balcony. A small café stood shuttered to their left with scatter...

Adam flicked the switch and the LED’s came on flooding the Lab with harsh, white light. They weren’t wired up well, but they worked, and that was what was important. The sun had come up and given him enough light to work. Electrical tape had been his friend, and at least they had a light for tonight...

Re: Escape from Hellview new chapters added 9/24/2015

Dudley used the bolt cutters to make a hole in the chain link fence on the northern end of the airport. There was the distinct snap of metal with each cut, and he winced at the noise. He didn’t like the idea of attracting anyone or anything. He opened up the hole, and Christian slipped through, foll...

The next morning, light filtered through the large skylights on the hangar and made it’s way into the plane. A ray of sunshine from the east peeked over the mountains, and perfectly found it’s way in through the window and into Christian’s face. The light revealed bad bruising over his nose and chee...

Re: Escape from Hellview new chapter added 27/08/15

The next fifteen minutes went by quietly, the group split up into several smaller teams and began searching. Dudley and dukes found a small second storey office in the far corner of the hangar. It didn’t have much useful in it, except for a water cooler with an 18L jug atop it. They took that. Dudle...

This story is meant to be written like a serial television show. You will see Hollywood tropes and cinematic unrealism from time to time. :p
