It's a Wilder World|
Hey Stalkers - the next chapter is up, and just in time for my Fallout: New Vegas binge! The team has finally been re-united and is heading once more into the breach, only this time they find the areas they've been to before are not quite as tame as they remember them.
Preview followed by link, enjoy!:
She takes point, compressing her body along the outside wall of the warehouse as Gremlin and the rest of the Stalkers pile up behind her. She inches her way to the corner of the building and takes a look around.
“All clear,” She announces. “But it looks like we might be exposed up ahead.”
“Be careful.” Gremlin warns her before she takes of running through the street to the next available cover. The Stalkers follow her lead one by one as she darts from cover to cover, doing her best to avoid open areas as the morning sun rises behind them. She leans around a corner a couple building away from them and quickly compresses herself back against the wall, motioning them all over.
“What is it?” Gremlin says as he stacks up next to her.
“Bandit camp, right on the tracks.” She says.
“Son of a bitch… they’ll see us for sure.” Gremlin says, sighing in frustration.
“Let’s take them out.” Nimbus offers.
“There’s got to be another way…” Gremlin insists.
“We can’t get around them and we sure as hell can’t reason with them. The only other thing to do would be try to barter but if they outnumber us they’d just take everything and make us run away naked for their own amusement. Trust me… this is the only way.”
Gremlin grits his teeth and squeezes the butt of his rifle, but gives up on trying to find another way.
“We’ll take a poll; yea " we take them out, nay " we find another way.
All say yea except Virtue. Gremlin acknowledges him saying, “At least we know one of us has a shot at not going straight to hell. Alright, let’s do this.”
He rolls out of cover, taking a grenade from his belt, pulling the pin with his teeth and tossing it directly into the middle of the camp of a dozen or so Bandits. The grenade rolls into a group sitting around a campfire. By the time one of them sees it and begins shouting in alarm as it explodes, killing him and three others instantly. The other two fall back into the camp and yell at the others who get to cover immediately.
Gremlin moves up to a train car on the track closest and motions the other over as he lays his gun down on the bed and begins blind-firing into the camp. Return fire ricochets off of the car, buildings, and ground around him.
“Fan out!” Gremlin shouts as he loads a new magazine.
The Stalkers spread out along the length of the train car, popping out and returning the Bandits fire.
