Day 29: At The Edge of Everywhere

 From the Journal of Maya Ceros, Day 29.

    As soon as we linked up with the Convoy again, we were off in search of Factory 17. Greene had a hunch, a scrap of a map and some coordinates to point us in the right direction. With some luck, I figured, we'd reach it before nightfall.

    For better or worse, we did.

    In truth, the day was pretty uneventful. We bumped along on rutted roads, keeping a vigilant eye out for any sign of the factory or anything else of note. About halfway through the day, we found the remains of another convoy, another group that had struck out this far, though they hadn't been so lucky as we have been. There were enough scraps and building supplies left that we could have probably reinforced everything we have if we'd found it earlier in our journey. In the end, though, there was almost nothing of value to anyone but Greene. I'm just glad he was willing to pay us in trade for everything we pulled out of the wreckage for him.

    When we finally found the factory, I have to admit that I was gripped with apprehension. Something about the place pulled at me. Something about the place wasn't right.

    I guess I'll know what it is soon enough. We go in tomorrow, scope the place out and see what's what. With a little luck, it'll be abandoned, full of tech, with nothing haunting the hallways but canned goods and ammunition. 

    Well, one can hope, at least.

Progress Toward finding Factory 17: 1 (3 of 3)


Polybius is fully healed and returns to the team.

Big Jimmy prepares a dose of Sprawlwort to give Daedalus an advantage in fighting fish. He then goes in search of herbs but doesn't find any. He does not run into trouble.

Daedalus goes fishing and finds a "Not Great" Spot with two fish he can try to catch. Fish 1: 1/1; Fish 2: 3/2. Daedalus watches the fish with his careful, discerning eye and decides that none of these fish is worth the effort to try to catch. Instead, he turns back for home. Polybius still needs some care if he's going to be ready to be a whirlwind force for the initial foray into Factory 17 tomorrow. He does not run into trouble.

Henrietta goes in search of hogs to wrestle and finds a whole pack! Hog 1: 1/3, Hog 2: 2/5, Hog 3: 2/3, Hog 4: 6/3, Hog 5: 5/1. Eager to catch a hog, she selects Hog 5 and goes in fast. She tries to catch him, but he's too fast and the whole pack gets away. She does not run into trouble.


Post-Play Notes:  Day 29: Settlement event: Increased Patrols. Encounter: Find Resources: Building Materials. Stability already at maximum, so no benefit.
