Day 8: - My God, It's Full of Bugs! (Five Klicks)
From the Journal of Maya Ceros, Day 8.
Thallo Green is turning out to be a man with many talents. With more and more survivors and vehicles joining the convoy, a lot of us are finding we actually have a little time to relax. To better utilize that time, Thallo has introduced a few of us to a number of hobbies. We can't spare many of our people long enough for them to get too involved with any hobbies, but it's nice to have time to do something other than just fighting to survive.
For us, though, for my squad, today was the day we followed Thallo's lead on a settlement he'd passed not long before. They have a decent holding in the wastes. . . well, had a decent holding. Wasn't long after we pulled up to the settlement that we realized they'd been wiped out.
And when the chittering howl came up from the sands, it became very clear exactly what had cut them down to corpses.
** Apparently, I forgot that Hunter Bugs also make morale checks. This could have gone very bad for me, and pushed me to make a quick reference sheet to I can stop forgetting so many basic things, lol.
*** I also forgot to make armor rolls until this point, at which point I rolled for all of the bugs and found out most of them weren't really dead.
