Day 10: Fresh Faces (Five Klicks)
From the Journal of Maya Ceros, Day 10.
After we broke from the fungus-infested chunk of sprawl where we got stuck yesterday, we followed Thallo Greene out to a little watering hole where he's had good luck fishing before. I had my gun ready when we arrived, but blessedly, it was a quiet day where everyone got a chance to relax a little.
There were a few stragglers crowded around the watering hole when we arrived. Probably the most interesting one was this greenhorn named Larry Rollins who'd gotten a hold of an old cop car someone else had welded a dangerous-looking flamethrower onto. With Greene and Sally's help, we managed to give the new rookie a few pointers on how to tune the flamer so that it would be more likely to set his enemies on fire than it would be to set his own car on fire. That and some canned goods, and we had a new car in our convoy with some fun firepower for taking on the fungal horrors that seem to be getting more and more common the closer we get to the sprawl.* Even better, he paid for his meals in guns, and now we have a SAW and a really nice hand cannon to keep the squad alive in the wasteland.
