Rage and Redemption
Ash’s recounting of the fight for the Death’s Head bunker:
After that mess on the road earlier in the day Christoph‘s sister, Felix, drove up and let us know that somebody was back at the bunker asking about me. She had no idea who this strange woman that was looking for me was. She did however know that the way into the ranch was open and was willing to lead us in. We agreed and soon we had the trailers unloaded, Sal’s burned out rig won’t haul much until we fix it, and we all made it in just as the path that was left open snapped shut behind us…(I’m hating this smart mist more with each passing day…)
Inside the bunker it turns out it was that doctor bitch from Alpha base, Jade I think; I wanted to shoot her on the spot. Instead I got Ginger to bring Christoph down so we could convince his parents to throw her out lest she cause issues. Unfortunately that didn’t go well and before we knew it she had Christoph’s mom hostage and was trying to drag her out the base’s back door. I wasn’t there for the shooting, but she ate lead to the face; good thing too, the rest of her was built like those damned Kevlars.
Of course things are never that easy, we lost a soldier after he bled out, and Christoph’s mom took a bullet to the leg. (Ginger says she’ll be fine.) After that the rear entrance was rushed by some Glowsticks and Einy’s, we held that off easy enough. That seemed to be all the zombies could handle as the mist seems to be fading.
Maybe now we can use that captured kit and dig that trench I’ve been sketching out.
WARBOT UNIT #0017_DATALOG_05122042
THIS ENTRY HAS BEEN EDITED FOR THE EASE OF UNDERSTANDING FOR THE MEATBAGS WHO ARE ATTEMPTING TO LOG THIS UNITS EXISTENCE. THIS UNIT IS AMUSED BY THE MEATBAG’S INSISTENCE THAT EDITING OF THIS ACCOUNT IS NEEDED, AS THIS UNIT HAS NO FEELINGS AND CAN PROVIDE A PERFECT RECOUNTING OF EVENTS AS THIS UNIT HAS EXPERIENCED THEM, SAVE IN THE EVENT OF DATA CORRUPTION.

>:UNIT WARBOT #0017 began Solar Cycle with SSSOCs (Standard Startup Safety and Operations Checks) targeting Infected meatbags until completing DRM (Daily Minimum Requirement) for total extermination of the Infected meatbags (this UNIT’s Primary Objective). Low threat UNITS de-prioritized. After all Infected in the area were destroyed this unit began searching for any available refueling stations. Late into the solar cycle,as this UNIT began to require a POWER DOWN, This UNIT observed what seemed to be a heavily protected area, which has since been identified to this UNIT as LOCATION-DEATHSHEADRANCH.
>: This UNIT was engaged and surprised by MEATBAG # 01001110 01000001 01011010 01001001 (M.STURM), and UNIT’s self preservation routine were engaged. (M.STURM) asked a few questions about this UNIT’s function and purpose, and seemed confused at first, demanding I remove my outer frame so he could examine my exoskeleton.
>:Correctly assessing my Skintanium Armor to be superior, and impressed with the arsenal I carried on my back, (M.STURM) allowed this UNIT to enter the LOCATION,and identified several of the other Squishies within.
>:SEVERAL NEW MEATBAGS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THIS UNITS MEMORY; OUTDATED MEATBAG DATA HAS BEEN OVERWRITTEN.
>:This UNIT Began performing basic Security Operations, scanning for possible threats to this LOCATION’s safety, while the returning Meatbags began discussing unimportant non-robot related issues in many other sections of the compound. Attempts to engage Meatbags in standard ‘Water Cooler’ conversation was met with failure. MEATBAG listed as #01001010 01000001 01000100 01000101 (JADE) was seen leading MEATBAG #01000110 01000101 01001101 01001110 01000001 01011010 01001001 (C.STURM) toward emergency exit, threatening her with a weapon. This UNIT understands this is a major violation of an oath sworn by a medical practitioner such as UNIT (JADE). This UNIT wonders how any squishy is trusted to do anything, without programming to hold them back.

>:This Unit targeted MEATBAG (JADE), and began to fire; however, weapon calibrations were inaccurate. Attempts to threaten the meatbag into surrender were, thankfully, unsuccessful.
>:OPENING RECORDING OF ATTACK ON MEATBAG (JADE).
>:RECORDING EDITED BY UNIT FOR CLARITY.
“This UNIT will not miss again.”
“AHAHAHA I am An Inferior Squishy Unit and am going to Laugh to Hide my Shame at not being a superior robot like you, ”wiki-content-link-not-found">_Content Not Found: warbot-17_!"
>:This Unit Proceeded to shoot the Meatbag’s head, which was less squishy then anticipated. Two Meatbags dragged the corpse away from the compound, and began discussing the situation of limited food and water supplies. WARBOT #0017 was concerned as well, of course, as my Mr.FUSION required bio-material to power this UNIT, and the internal Water cooling systems that prevent the MR.FUSION from overheating and damaging the auto-repair nanobots inside this UNIT.
>:This UNIT, and several of the Squishies then noticed that several infected had found the hidden entrance to the back door. Mounting several of the Squishies with assault weaponry we performed a termination operation to eliminate them. This UNIT enjoyed the violence of this Solar Cycle.
>: (THIS UNIT WOULD LIKE TO ADD A SIDE NOTE) Running SRS (Survival Rate Simulation) of Meatbag # 01000010 01010101 01010010 01000111 01000101 01010010 (CARL) results in an estimated life expectancy of -284 years.
>: LOGIC FAILURE/LOGIC FAILURE
>: Most obvious course of action is summary termination of Meatbag # 01000010 01010101 01010010 01000111 01000101 01010010 (CARL), However, his own actions should soon suffice. A shame, as he is wonderfully destructive for a human, a credit to his squishy species.
GINGER’S DIARY, AGAIN (#3, if anyone cares..)
We got back to the Death’s head Ranch surprisingly fine. There were all kinds of zombies and other zombies attacking, but Felix led us into the compound without incident. There, Ash met this incredibly hot chick he didn’t like and who was clearly lying about being innocent of something I didn’t know about. We went to go ask Christoph to tell his dad to kick her out, then Ash poured me some alcohol and we had a drink together (the new guy, , was there too, but not the whole time). Just as I was starting to get all Karen from Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, we heard shots and found that the hot chick was trying to elder-nap Christoph’s mom and throw her to the zombies, but this android called Warbot 0017 shot her up a little and bulleted her face in. We held a conference about our plan of action should the zombies persist and were interrupted again by pounding on the door the lady was disposed outside of. Not really knowing what to expect, assault weaponry was distributed amongst us, then Christoph opened the door and zombies were shot. I would have done more shooting than I did, but was shot by Felix and I patched him up instead. Oh yeah, Mrs. Christoph got shot when the pretty woman was being dealt with and I had to medicine her too. Anyway, Christoph got the door closed again after we picked off all the zombies that rushed in at us and hopefully we can relax for a little while now.
