A group of my ex-squad members offered me safe passage if I could lure someone else into a trap - not technically playing my side, but as a LIRO member I believe humans and zombies can work together... or I did.

Got about 10 steps out the door before the zombies started to move ahead of me, so I tried to call them back:

"Guys, wait, you're supposed to be protecting - never mind, I'm a zombie now."

I was only really upset because I wanted to die while dancing Thriller... :twisted:

Items? Really?


Actually the items were with me and sean in the next buidling over, hedley bull, Antony assumed you knew we were there because all the zombies were gathered out the front of the large glass entrance way... we took a photo of chris' hat, snuck out the only other exit and ran to copeland while the horde was looking the other way :D

I have several... Getting to Pajenkas at 10 am yes'd, getting subway... phone call from Kev & Greg, meet us near Menzies. Ok, solo over, round the top of coombs. Oh crap, that's a horde. can't find a door so I go hide in some shrubs and get on the phone... hole up in coombs for a while, try to find a way round, hole up in coombs for a while, meet up with the doctor. Hear about the actual day mission, take a group of 7 as far as the balcony on Mellville, hold there for a bit in the open, find that we'd already failed the mission. Head accross to pajenkas then yet more solo adventures then traverse the entire campus with 2 people to finally meet up with PiP Red.

25 Metre shot on Richard on thursdays night mission that nearly gave me the space to go and grab the yellow beacon, except for the fact that I lost my magazine.

Running out 2 beacons before the zombies noticed, and then switching them when only Richard was around. Damn that was tiring

Solo run from shop to ANUSA to return some darts for escapium, and then the escape from there that was too close to call.

Richard and I colliding at full speed today in the hall, causing both of us to take the phones and keys out of our pockets for the next round.

A large group of zombies was standing outside talking on Friday. (This being because there were NO humans at ANU once the minigames finished. So boring.) We were approached by a rather dodgy-looking character (not game character) holding a sign saying "Nanorobots for Sale". He offered to sell us ONE (1) Nanorobot, and when rebuffed, asked us if we knew what a nanorobot was. When we said that yes, they are microscopic robots he insisted very vehemently that they were "NANOSCOPIC", asked if we had a cigarette, and then walked away. We waited about 5 seconds and then got the hell out of there.

All in all, an encounter both extremely weird and exceedingly creepy.
I just fell asleep...

Myself, Alistair and Freya were escaping off campus yesterday evening, and as we came to the four stone balls that mark the boundaries, we see 4 zombies.

3 of us - Maverick, Raider, Longshot, and socks. We could probably take them, but you know, its never easy.

As we get closer they see us.

"Hey, its The Doctor! We'll let you pass if you hug us off campus!"

We passed through a-ok. And then I hugged them.

<3

My double epic win/fail was trying to make it to co-op solo, and then getting chased by 10 Zombies, and then only _just_ making it to the newsagents. With only socks and sonic. Wow.



FYI - I have also been offered Nanobots, but this was last week. 0_o

That was us :) It was totally worth the 10 minute stun time for going off campus to hug you, too :)

Also, I was one of the Friday "Nanorobots" crowd. I was torn between hilarity and being terrified.

I must say, however, props to the nanorobot hobo for approaching us while I looked like this:
