So...

Carefully pry what you can see out of the mine with minimal vibration while floating on hoverboards (barely any Materials gained, but safe)
Restart Mining, get Material. (Steady Material flow again, but cause the burrowers to start appearing)
Ignore Mine. (Explain in post, please)

Trapped. - (Returning?)
« on: December 19, 2010, 08:49:32 pm »

You are trapped inside your domed town on a formerly peaceful planet. A virus has turned everything into zombies Monsters of horrible doomy doom. Unfortunately, the outside antenna has been torn into tiny pieces of shrapnel and the dome is too protective for normal communications to make it through uncorrupted. Your last report to Home Planet was your happy report of having finally attained self-sufficiency, so the next shuttle that arrives (they did not say when) will most likely only be a simple trader's ship. There are 3 main entrances to the dome, but only 5 soldiers to protect them, so one will have to sacrifice himself (or become a Hero) by defending the last entrance by himself.
Good luck.

So, yeah. I am trying another multiplayer game, but this time less galactic scale and more manageable single planet size. as I wrote in the nice description above, there will be 5 soldiers, and one will have to be the lone guy protecting the south door. the other two doors are Northeastern and Western doors.

Each turn will bring a swarm of horrible doomy things of doom, and ya'll have to shoot/stab/shotgun/other them before they get in. (though there won't be much other until later) When the trader comes, he'll bring mostly non-military stuff, but each following arrival will bring more stuff that you the defenders could actually use to defend yourself (and your home, of course).
The tricky thing will be paying him, since theres not much that he'd be interested in buying from soldiers, except the aliens. But We will get to that when we get to him. All bought weapons will be in a group pile, any of you will be able to use them once at least one of you has paid the trader for it (though obviously if two want it at the same time, you will need two of the weapon, not just one).

Ammo is not going to be kept track of, just assume you have enough, unless you get a critical fail and your gun jams or something.
I'll be using random.org, 0-20. normal d20 dice, along with the occasional d6.

Can you try to keep real religious things out, please? You can make up a future religion related to it if you want, though.

We don't have a sniper rifle yet, just plain guns, shotguns, and various kinds of swords. I'll put it as one of the few useful things in the first trader visit though, k?

Well, we could start with you three and let the other two join later, but only Lilli/Griph wanted to fight alone.
What say ya'll?
