"Oh yes, of course, of course, of course." Fallow rambled. "In fact we can go now." He said as he patted himself down making sure he had everything he needed, like a normal man who was just going out to the shops. Wallet, keys, scalpels. "Yes, yes I am ready to go! Edgar!!! Do we have anything to make a packed lunch?!"

"Uuuurrgghh!!" Edgar moaned back from behind the group as they made their way down the hallway.
"Damn! Then we shall have to stop by the convenience store on the way back, you two look like you can carry your share of groceries."He said to the two towering zombies behind him. "Anyway, let's go."

The warehouse had clearly seen better days. At least Fallow assumed, he had never actually set floor inside one before, he had always had a poor person to do that kind of thing before. So he could only assume it was the norm for all the windows to be smashed in and for birds to have started nesting in the rafters. Fallow had to admit the way the sunlight played off the cobwebs and struck the pigeon dropping gave the place a certain rustic charm.

"Rightoh! Let's get to work." And at that the party set about methodically searching for their prize. At least as methodically as a group can function when it is comprised of a mad man and a trio of cadavers.

Following along behind Simon, Victor crouched down next to the injured young man. He hurriedly opened his satchel and pulled out the bloodied first aid kit that he had found earlier in the van. Before he opened it, he reinforced Simon's inquiry about the injury. "Never mind if you have been bitten, has the wound been contaminated? The virus could well be spread through blood contact." He lifted his arm and looked at it. It was a very minor wound, but even the slightest papercut could lead to infection.

A zombie rushed toward the kid and Simon. Simon cursed but before he could even grab his weapon "Cyclpos" had taken care of the zombie with an katana. Simon was impressed by his fighting skills and Cyclops walked over to the door he said he would guard it. Victor crouched besides the kid and said. "Never mind if you have been bitten, has the wound been contaminated? The virus could well be spread through blood contact." Simon wasn't happy to hear this news. He thought that he had to get something to protect his mouth and eyes. Lifting up his shirt to protect his shirt worked fine it was even designed for that. Now to find some glasses.

Victor seemed to be handling the situation. "Good luck doc I will go to the door and help there." Simon was relived that they seemed to have an experienced medic or doctor or whatever he was. And since the wound was only minor wound, Victor probably wouldn't need his help. Simon walked over to the door. He walked to the one eyed man and offered his hand to him. "My name is Simon." Simon said with an smile which could be vaguely seen through his new mouth protection. After the man introduced himself Simon asked. "So where did you loose your eye?" Simon grabbed his crowbar and looked to the outside there weren't any zombies attacking right now but that might change fast. A couple of zombies were walking close to the store. It would only be a matter of time before they smelled the blood.

Shane winced in pain as the this new guy looked at his wound. "Ahh shit. I dunno, I slipped on some blood but my sleeve covered my arm." Shane felt stupid asking the next question and tried to avoid eye contact. "Umm, ha-have any of you seen my bike... you see my bike it er, the wheel slipped on the blood trail and thats how I fell. S-Stupid I know but... am I gonna be okay?" Shane was worried. These same thoughts had run through his own mind. At least this old guy knew what he was doing. That and the nut with the crowbar and the one eyed samurai wannabe. 'Best not piss these guys off' Shane thought to himself 'I nearly got myself killed in a day and these dudes have guns, probably best trying to stick with them.

Simon walked over to the door. He walked to the one eyed man and offered his hand to him. "My name is Simon." Simon said with an smile which could be vaguely seen through his new mouth protection. After the man introduced himself Simon asked. "So where did you lose your eye?"

david took his hand firmly and shake and said with a little smile "name's David Captain David Woon, MI6" Simon then asked "So where did you loose your eye?" Simon grabbed his crowbar and looked to the outside there weren't any zombies attacking right now but that might change fast. A couple of zombies were walking close to the store. "it was 9 years old when some mafia boss asshole and I had a duel I managed to take him down with me but i lose my eye in the process I survived because lady luck was on my side the bullet went through my eye destroying it but somehow it missed my brain it was because of the angle the guy shot at me from and you?" he said and then put a hand on Simon's crowbar telling him to lower it and then pulls out a pistol

"name's David Captain David Woon, MI6" MI6? Well that sounds promising. "it was 9 years old when some mafia boss asshole and I had a duel....it missed my brain it was because of the angle the guy shot at me from and you?"Simon looked back at David."Hunting accident. I was hunting a lynx with my little brother.." He looked a bit pained before continuing."He made an mistake the lynx knew we were there it attacked him. I jumped in front of my brother the lynx impaled itself on my machete, but the sheer force of the beats knocked me on the ground.. Damned thing still lived scratched my eyes out with its paw. And gave me several smaller scars on my chest and arms. I then managed to get my rifle between him and me and shot his head off. The doctor say I have to be happy that I hadn't bled out by that point. Took the ambulance 20 minutes to get me out of the forest."

David then grabbed his gun and it looked like he wanted to fire it. Simon looked at David and shook his head." We can't use our guns here. First of all the make so much noise that all the zombies in and out the mall will come to us. Second we don't have that much ammo and we can't waste it if we don't have to." Simon looked outside when he got an idea."I have an idea how we can taker care off all the zombies. It is quite simple actually I attract all the zombies and get them into a store we don't need. After that we close those giant iron shutters trapping them inside. After that we can set the store ablaze or just kill the zombies one by one. What do you think of that idea?" Simon looked at David.

"ok that not bad plan but it could go wrong very quickly or i that put this silencer on my gun and you open the door slightly so i can stick my hand and i shoot those two coming this way in the head what'd you say Simon want to have fun?" "alright let's do it" said Simon then david pulls a silencer and try to put it on his gun "come on.......you....stupid thing.......get on there........ah there we go ready?" i must be mad to agreed with this thought Simon nervously.

"Or i that put a silencer on my gun you open the door slightly so i can stick my hand and i shoot them in the head what'd you say Simon want to have fun?" "alright let's do it" david pulls a silencer and try to put it on his gun. "come on.......you....stupid thing.......get on there........ah there we go ready?" Simon's remark about ammo was ignored. While he didn't think it was an good idea he didn't want to anger an crazy armed MI6 agent. "Well if you are sure you can take care of them then let's do it. If we clear the mall and board it up we have an good spot to stay for a while. You wouldn't happen to have an silencer for a hunting rifle would you?" Simon might have found a group that was if they were willing to help him on his mission.

"i agree this a good place to rest up and you're in luck here" pulls another silencer and gives it to Simon "let's do this open the door" Simon opens the door and david sticks his hand and shoot both zombies and they both fall forward "thank god these doors go both ways help me carry them in" said david and then they open the doors the other way so none of the zombies notice the doors have opened and then David and Simon drag the bodies in and closed the doors "now i know this is a weird question but where in the bloody hell am i!? i mean I've walking for ages and I've probably crossed counties somehow and when i entered this mall there was no sign to tell me where i am and to be honest i couldn't really look around because i heard you and victor fighting zombies nearby and i ran to where you were" he asked

"i agree this a good place to rest up and you're in luck here"As David gave Simon an silencer. Simon smiled as he attached it to his gun."let's do this open the door" Simon opend the door and david sticks his hand and shoot both zombies and they both fall forward "thank god these doors go both ways help me carry them in" said david and then they open the doors the other way so none of the zombies notice the doors have opened and then David and Simon drag the bodies in and closed the doors "now i know this is a weird question but where in the bloody hell am i!? i mean I've walking for ages and I've probably crossed counties somehow and when i entered this mall there was no sign to tell me where i am and to be honest i couldn't really look around because i heard you and victor fighting zombies nearby and i ran to where you were""You don't know what country this is? Well this is ***************** of course what other country could this be?" Simon looked to both zombies and then back to David. "Let's take a few more out." Simon walked to the door and opened it. He aimed at an zombie that was standing still, he made a clean head shot and the zombie dropped. As expected of zombies the other zombies didn't notice a thing. Simon smiled as he closed the door again. "Want to go for the melee weapons next?"

Cyrus woke up and shook his head clear of last nights nightmare, a few beads of sweat falling down from his forehead and falling onto the sheets below. Cyrus could tell that it was daytime by the light trickling into his room on either side of the shades. Cyrus didn't know how late he had slept in, but he knew that it was time to go out and look for another weapon. Despite how well his bat was holding up, he knew that getting that close to a zombie was a very bad thing, and every time he got that close, he ran a very high risk of getting infected from blood splatter.

Cyrus shook his head and pushed the covers back off of himself, sliding his legs off the side of the bed to an already waiting dog. The dog panted happily and gave Cyrus a small lick before walking over to his bag and prodding it with it's nose. Cyrus shrugged and opened his pack, pulling out the bag of dog-food and his dog's bowl, filling it up before stepping into the bathroom for a quick shower, with what water the hotel had left in it's own private reservoir. The only reason the water still ran in fact, was because Cyrus had managed to find a few generators set up in the basement, and he had managed to hook them up.

After Cyrus' shower, he put on a clean set of black clothing and slipped on his leather jacket and gloves. Cyrus shouldered his pack after cleaning up the food and water bowls, patting his dog on the head and unbuckling the baseball bat from the buckle that held it in place on his back. Cyrus slowly pushed the dresser out of the way, giving himself just enough room to slip through the doorway and into the empty hallway. Cyrus' dog followed behind him, keeping itself silent so any zombies in the area wouldn't noticed him.

"Time to go hunting." Cyrus mumbled almost entirely to himself as him and his dog crept down the staircase to the main lobby that was almost flooded with sunlight. Beyond the bulletproof glass that displayed the outside world, Cyrus could see hundreds of zombies biting at the metal fence set up to keep zombies out before Cyrus had even found this place. Cyrus made sure his pack was on tightly and his bat was balanced before opening the doors of the hotel and stepping out into the nightmare of his world.

Starting Location. Outside the Forst's Hospital for the Mentally Insane.

Don Slazenger walked down the halls of the asylum, wiping the blood of his hands as a tall, rigidly walking zombie in tow behind him.

"Would you believe that guy Bo? 'No Mr. Slazenger, please wait! It's not safe outside, you're still unwell!'", the Man mockingly said, his voice mimicking a whiny eleven year old girl as he said so, though it did nothing to mask an italian accent. "That bozo, thinking he could order ME around? Don Slazenger of Location City! I think not!"

The zombie, Bobo as he started calling him, merely groaned in response.

The Don nodded vigorously, "See that's what I like about you Bo. You're quiet, not like those asswipes who think they can tell me what to do! Insane! Pah! What drivel were they trying to pull with me eh? I'm not insane! I'm the Don, right Bo?"

Another groan from the zombie.

He smirked. "Yeah, exactly."

Another groan, longer this time.

"When we leaving Bo? Hell I don't know, as soon as I feel like it."

Groan.

"Yeah I know Bo, I know. I'm hungry too. Soon as we find that...HA!

The Don came across the main door to the Asylum's entrance hall. They had been wondering the floors and wings of the hospital for hours now trying to find an intact door, and now they're luck's finally turned right! Except, as the Don tugged on the door, he realized it was locked. A hateful grin appeared on his face.

"Why....why they locked me in! Those bastards locked me in!" Slazenger roared in rage, and the zombie began to noticeably slouch.

"After all I did for them! All the experiments I made for them! All the pain I had to endure to tell them how a plasma injector cycloboiter device worked" He screamed, his italian accent slowly turning german. Bobo began to drool, his upright posture gone as he became indistinguishable from a normal zombie, except for the fact his slouch seemed to imitate a large bump.

"Bobo! Wreck this door!" Professor Chaos said in manic rage. "We'll show them! We'll show them all! They think they can lock me up, but NO ONE can lock me up!"

Bobo grunted in response to Chaos' command and began slamming into the door, screaming and yelling. The Professor snickered in glee, removing his business jacket and grabbing the lab coat that until now had been on Bobo's shoulder, replacing it with the business jacket and flicking down the goggles that had been strapped on this entire time, causing them to flip down to his eyes. After that, he began jumping up and down, clapping his hands as his zombie wailed on the door.

Eventually, the door broke, and Bobo moved forward to secure the hall for his master. The mad man moved in, arms raised to the sky as he moved forward majestically.

"Yes....YES!" Professor Chaos yelled, a full german accent over his words. "My time has come! My time is NOW! They will PAY! THEY WILL ALL PAY!

Shane winced in pain as the this new guy looked at his wound. "Ahh shit. I dunno, I slipped on some blood but my sleeve covered my arm." Shane felt stupid asking the next question and tried to avoid eye contact. "Umm, ha-have any of you seen my bike... you see my bike it er, the wheel slipped on the blood trail and thats how I fell.

'Best not piss these guys off' Shane thought to himself 'I nearly got myself killed in a day and these dudes have guns, probably best trying to stick with them.

"hey kid" said david as he and Simon were piling up bodies "i saw your bike, thing was bend out of shape in so many ways and there was trail of blood near it, i would've check to see if you were alright but next thing i know i hear doc shouting "Watch yourself!!" and i run to where they were and helped them.

david was say something when he thought 'we got to lead them away for awhile' stand up and says "i'll be right back i need to go do something" he disappears and Simon looks out the door and sees david walking into music store and nothing then this starts blasting from the music store

and all the zombies hear the song and they start moving towards the store and entering it, Simon closes the door and looks to his left and sees david standing right next to him eating a chocolate bar "AHH!! Jesus!!" said Simon "what? have i got something on me?" said david searching himself for something creepy

David stood up and said. "i'll be right back i need to go do something" he disappeared. Simon looked outside to see David walking into the music store. Then there was a short silence interrupted by a loud song blasting from the store. All of the zombies started moving toward the store and some had already entered it. Simon closed the door and then looked to his left. Seeing David standing there. "AH!! Jesus!!"Simon said as he fell out of his siting position onto the ground because of the shock of seeing David. "what? have i got something on me?" said David searching himself for something Simon sighed as he stood up. Well I have to remember to never get on that guys bad side. Simon looked at David. "So David what is our next move?"

Floris2123:

"well let's see what they doing at the store" david opens the door and sees the zombies starting to leave "oh dear we can't have that now can we? good thing I've got a back plan " pulls out a little detonator "doc, kid, Simon cover your ears it's about to get very loud" then gives them a moment to cover their ears.

"well let's see what they doing at the store" David opens the door. "oh we can't have that now can we?" pulls out a little detonator "doc, kid, Simon cover your ears it's about to get very loud" Simon eyes opened in panic as he saw the detonator. He covered his ears and dropped himself to the ground. WHO THE HELL GIVES SUCH AN MANIAC EXPLOSIVES?!

"bring on the fireworks!!" shouted david as he detonates the detonator and it's so loud some of windows have smashed from the explosion after it died down david stands up and says "i love it when shit blows up anyway that should keep them busy for awhile"

Covering his ears from the explosion Shane stood up and shouted "Christ what the fuck is wrong with you man!" Shane knew this guy was a nut but at this point he didn't care. "There are thousands of zombie in this city and you probably just attracted them all. Fuck this." Shane was upset, his bike was broken, he was hungry, and his arm was killing him. He pulled his fresh knife out of his bag before struggling to pull the other out of the zombie's head. "I'm gonna get some food, grab a new bike from the bmx place and get the fuck out of this whole damn city."
Shane tried to look hard, like he was in control. But he soon felt embarrassed as the butcher knife was too wedged in the zombie's skull. He swore and cursed and began to punch it in the chest with his good arm.

Two new contestants have arrived, the Op has been updated with their fancy lines. Carry on.

"yeah so what if i have just attracted all zombies in the whole mall to one single area which is on the other side of the mall from where we are so that means I've just probably saves all of us by distracting these things and that place is wired to blow when all the zombies are in that single area and when i pull this trigger again" said david as pull out the c4 detonator and showing Shane and then putting it away "also you be dead before the week's out if you leave us and you know it" he said as he put his foot on the zombie and pull out the butcher knife of it's skull and handing it to Shane.

Solomon stood staring at the black ring. Solomon was wearing Necromancer robes that he had found in the temple storeroom. He pulled down his hood, exposing his face. He turned to his personal zombie, a former Necromancer and smiled. "Get Tenebrae for me, I'd like to try an..experiment." The zombie stumbled out of the room. As Solomon waited, he returned to a book entitled 'enchanting your item'. "To enchant your ring, keep it in contact with yourself for 24 hours" he read aloud. Solomon placed the black ring on his finger. He could feel his energy being drained almost immediately. Just then Tenebrae walked into the room. "Your required my assistance sir?" asked Tenebrae. "Yes" Solomon said smiling slightly, "stand over there". Solomon gestured to the centre of the room. Tenebrae walked cautiously over to the spot. "Now just stand there and relax" said Solomon. Tenebrae put his arms to his sides nervously. Solomons smile faded and he shot his hands forward shooting out a shard of dark energy. Tenebrae barely had time to react. The shard deeply cut Tenebrae's arm and the shard vanished as soon as it had appeared. Tenebrae's injury however, remained. Tenebrae collapsed to the floor in agony, screaming in pain. Solomon sighed "For someone who embraces death and pain, you sure seem to scream a lot over a small cut". Tenebrae stared in horror at Solomon "A small cut?! My arm is cut nearly to the bone!". Solomon turned to his zombie "Drag him to the temple clinic, I'll mend him when I get a chance". The zombie dragged the screaming Necromancer out of the room. Solomon turned his attention back to his hand. The ring was already glowing with power.

Sighing as he took the knife from the bomber dude, Shane said to him "I guess your right. But I get a feeling you get off on killing, I don't care if you do have a month's worth of ammo, and shit you could probably kill me before I had the chance to stand up. Just don't go attracting zombies for the sake of it okay? Cos I doubt you have some kind of infinite cache." Shane stood up and offered his hand to shake. "My name's Spencer." He figured it wasn't a lie if he kept it to his last name. "What about you guys?"

taking his hand and shaking it firmly showing a little bit of strength "David, Captain David, MI6 and i did it to attract and distract them from us so we'd have a way out of here if need be, not for the sake of it, always have a back plan.

Simon finally stood up he had expected a giant explosion so he had continued to lie face down after the first one. Guess he didn't blow up the entire mall... Simon turned around to hear. "My name's Spencer. What about you guys?" The 2 shook hands.[b] "David, Captain David, MI6 and i did it to attract and distract them from us so we'd have a way out of here if need be, not for the sake of it, always have a back plan." Simon looked at Spencer. He walked over to him and he grab his hand as soon as the handshake between him and David had ended. "My name is Simon and it is good to meet you Spencer." Simon said with an smile that ended as soon as the handshake had ended. Releasing the handshake he looked at David. "Hey David we could loot the mall now. I mean they might even have an gun store here, it is never a bad thing to be well prepared." Simon grabbed his crowbar as he waited for a response.

"hmm yes i agree half of the zombies that were in here have either been blown to pieces or are under rumble and the rest of them are standing on the dead ones and their on the other side of the mall we could loot this side i'd say we have an hour and a half maybe?".

"hmm yes i agree half of the zombies that were in here have either been blown to pieces or are under rumble and the rest of them are standing on the dead ones and their on the other side of the mall we could loot this side i'd say we have an hour and a half maybe?". Simon nodded at David, and then looked at Spencer. "Spencer will you be coming along with us on our looting trip? We might even find you a gun or better melee weapon while we are searching." Simon looked outside to see that most of the zombies were dead. And most of the others were either wounded or distracted they wouldn't notice them.

"hey doc here take these you need them" said david as he hands victor two pistol clips "i can tell when someone's on their last clip".

The dark tendrils appearing from the shadows around Solomon slashed the dummy over and over again. The more he practiced the more focused the tendrils became. The only problem with training with dummies was that it was no fun. He much preferred to practice on Tenebrae but Solomon could not bear his relentless moaning. Solomon could not see why Tenebrae was so upset. Just a few minor cuts and dark shards of energy through his arms and legs. Solomon couldn't understand what the big fuss was about. As of if on CueTenebrae ( and his zombie ) stumbled into the room with heavily bandaged legs and his right arm in a cast. "Slighty overdramatic don't you think" Solomon said smirking. Tenebrae's left eye twitched. "Overdramatic?! You slashed my legs into ribbons and almost cut my arm in half, then you clawed my face!" Solomon sighed "You know, I almost prefer the zombie over you, he doesn't complain as much as you". Tenebrae snapped. His good arm took out a dagger and jumped at Solomon waving the dagger madly. Solomon barely managed to dodge. Solomon quickly enveloped himself in shadows and appeared on the other side of the room. Tenebrae turned to face Solomon, his eyes gleaming madly. Tenebrae rushed at Solomon summoning a ball of dark energy and throwing it at Solomon. Solomon grabbed the zombie and threw him in the way. The dark energy created a hole in the zombies stomach and Tenebrae collided with the zombie and they both fell to the ground. Several of the zombies bones broke but it managed to sink its teeth into Tenebrae's neck. Tenebrae screamed In horror and rolled around the floors screaming once again in agony. Solomon sighed. "If the blood loss doesn't kill him, the zombie infection will". Solomon decided he had spent too much time underground. He needed some fresh air. He needed to go shopping. Solomon smiled at the thought of him going shopping. "I think I'll take a trip to the local mall! I hope soceity hadn't collapsed completely, but first, let's get you patched up". Tenebrae looked up hopefully. Solomon laughed. "Not you Tenebrae! I hope you rot in hell! I mean my zombie, he's missing a chest! Bye now Tenebrae!". Solomon walked out of the room followed closely by his zombie.
