A roar echoes through the misty streets, overpowering the moans of the innumerable shells of the walking dead swarming through your door. The sickening crunch of bodies being crushed, torn in half or ripped apart by … something, fill the air soon after. Lilly trembles in fear, and even Sarah seems appalled- one of the zombies manage to land a hit on her while she is distracted, but she just tears it apart like the rest, with her bare hands. You get on top of a discarded chair to try and get a better view through the blood-stained window to the outside, and what you see makes you regret it deeply.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fFXCy4QZ2sA giant creature of malformed flesh- something straight out of the nightmare of a madman- stands on its 6 legs, eerily reminiscent of the posture of an insect, yet made out of flesh and bone. Its mouth opens vertically as it swallows a zombie whole- Its maw filled with misshapen , blackened fangs- And its eyes a deep black- as if no light escaped them. Its visage terrifies you instinctively- but something inside you stirs, as if emboldened by the task at hand.You have to hunt. Or you shall not survive.You run back to your friends- Lilly looks at you, scared. You grip your crowbar hard.>I´m going in.>Sarah! The monster- I can´t take it on alone! >Grab the gun. It´s time to take risks.>Reach deeper into yourself?
>>1174389>>Sarah! The monster- I can´t take it on alone! >>Grab the gun. It´s time to take risks.
>>1174389>Reach deeper into yourself?I have no idea what this means
>>1174389>>Grab the gun. It´s time to take risks.
>>1174389>>Grab the gun. It´s time to take risks.>Sarah! Let's take it on once I'm out of ammo!
>Reach deeper into yourself?Time to get retarded.
You grab the gun with the stolen arm. It quivers- but stays under your control- perhaps frightened by the sheer determination filling your tiny frame, as you step forwards and shoot one of the zombies in the head.“Sarah- That monster… It won´t go away, and if we keep facing the entire horde head on we´ll be too tired to kill it”“ What do you want to do then?! Asks Sarah, in between ripping off another zombie´s head with her teeth, spraying blood on you- if you weren´t already drenched, you would probably have recoiled.“Once I run out of ammo… Let´s go in” You say, trying to shoot another of the zombies coming in- your arm twitches, and you hit a different one instead- It´s going to be hard to aim with this arm, but it seems to work better when holding a gun- a leftover from its previous owner, perhaps?You shoot zombie after zombie, your arm sometimes twitching to correct your aim- the bullets seem to be very effective at disposing of them, piercing through their frail bodies and killing sometimes two, even 3 with a single shot- And they keep piling up on the entrance, making it harder for the next one to enter- but the barred windows are starting to crack.You need to do something quick.>Flee higher- while the stairs aren’t as narrow as the kill corridor you made, the flow of zombies through the entrance should be slow enough that they won´t be able to reach you- and you´ll be able to exit afterwards.>Go into the horde, and take matters directly to the monster.>Get Lilly to help.>Reach deeper into yourself?>Other:Write-in?
>>1174532>Reach deeper into yourself?C'mon anon, I know you want to do it
>>1174532>>Reach deeper into yourself?Fuck it.
>>1174532>>Reach deeper into yourself?LET'S GOOOOOOOOOO
You breathe deeply, almost instinctively trying to tap into that… sensation you felt when looking upon the beast- that courage in the midst of fear. You feel your arm twitch as you shoot another zombie, and try to concentrate again- You remember your dream. How you fell for what felt like an eternity- and the white void where everything seemed to flash, faster than your mind could register- except that rune, etched into your very soul.Inside yourself, you find…>The strength to push onwards.>The skill to overcome this challenge.>The knowledge to control this fight.>The stamina to last through this.>???

Reaching deep into yourself, you find something- a cold and hard, yet fluid sensation- hard to explain with words. Opening your eyes- you didn´t even notice closing them- everything seems… sharper, now. As if you had been wearing dirty glasses before, or had just woken up- You look at Sarah before smashing a zombie that had gotten closer with your crowbar. The motion feels… smoother, somehow. As if you had practiced- Sarah gives you an odd look, but resumes dispatching zombies,as you shoot another 3 in quick succession- Even your arm seems more nimble now.>Go in.>Go upstairs.>Get Lilly´s help.
“Sarah, let´s go in!” You say, tossing the empty magazine aside and reloading, before kicking one of the zombies in the head, cracking it´s skull- grabbing the crowbar again and finishing it off with another blow, spraying it´s brains on the pile of gore already on the ground.“ Okay! Let´s do this, Tanis!”“Lilly, you´ll have to defend this place… I believe in you, okay?”“O…Okay! I´ll do my best!”You just hope she´ll be alright.You climb over the pile of corpses, twice dead- and hopefully never moving again- And slide down to the exit. The beast and you seem to have thinned the swarm considerably- to the point the zombies are dispersing now- Perhaps they have been recalled? You step outside- and the beast´s head snaps in your direction, like something straight out of a horror movie, staring at you with its pitch black eyes- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvUmL8uaE48It rears its head back and roars, shattering some of the windows on the nearby buildings, and cracking the rest- You cover your ears, to no avail. This will be a terrifying fight.Choose two. One for you and one for Sarah.>Charge it head on. >Try to kite it while shooting with your gun.[Tanis Only]>Climb on top of it to distract it [Sarah Only]>Stay at a distance, watch its movements.

Okay, seems we´re having Sarah charge it head on while we kite it, then.Man, this thread is taking much longer than i thought. Perhaps i´ll have to continue tomorrow, since it´s getting very late...Writing...

Your left arm spasms heavily, throwing off your aim- But you stop yourself from pulling the trigger- It was aiming at Sarah… That would have been very bad. You drop the crowbar and dodge the monster´s charge at you, shooting at it while grabbing the gun with both hands- That way, it´ll be harder for the arm to do it´s own thing and try and shoot your friend.Sarah charges at the monster from behind, leaping above it and kicking it on one of the joints of its multiple legs- causing it to bend slightly, only for the beast to spin around and try to bite her. You shoot at the beast´s neck, wounding it slightly- and it looks back at you, then at Sarah, as if trying to decide which is more dangerous- Then goes rushing back to you, with Sarah struggling to keep up with it- is it that much faster than her?! You weave around it with speed you didn´t think you had- fighting zombies was easy, but now you feel… strangely in control, even if you´re at risk of dying. Its oddly exhilarating to face an actual threat, a high you hadn´t experienced before- the thrill of the hunt?The rain starts falling on the concrete ground, dispersing the fog again- all the better for your visibility. The beast sniffs the air, tasting it with it´s twisted, snake-like tounge, before leaping at you once again- Does it track through smell? You´re covered in blood, but the rain is starting to wash it off- Sarah charges at the monster, punching one of its legs with all her strength, causing the beast to stagger, it´s head crashing in front of you as it tries to hit you with it´s tongue, but you dodge to the left and shoot it in the head- The bullet penetrating it´s flesh, but not it´s skull. It manages to stand up again, kicking Sarah away-“SARAH!”She spits some blood- probably not hers- and tries to stand up, but falls to her knees- the monster´s legs are powerful, and the distraction allows it to hit you too, albeit you manage to reduce the impact at the last second, it still dislocates your right arm- Shit, you´ve only got the sniper´s arm now.>Rush for the crowbar.>Try to finish the beast off with the gun.>Flee
