New sacrifice, started quite a ways out in the woods, with Triffid to the west, Fungus to the east and an anthill to the southwest for flavor. I get lucky, the npc joins me. 2 steps out the shelter and we’re dodging soldier ants while Trevor picks a fight with some fungal zombies.
After setting him straight, we book it out of there and lose everything in the trees. There’s a road heading north out of this hellish warzone so we head that way.
About 10 screens up, I’m feeling pretty good and just laid on the 8 key, headed north. I didn’t notice when the bandit popped up on the map, I should really start using safemode again.
My first clue was the 3 gunshots to my torso, somehow I survived those and the 2 parting gifts as I dodge behind Trevor. Sorry bud, I’m a survivor and you got hit with the shitty traits stick…I make it to the treeline. Trevor…doesn’t make it. The bandit chases me for a little while, shooting me twice more. They never miss! What gives? Eventually, I continue north, paying much better attention to the map and compass.
West of me, I spy a Survivor Encampment and decide to roll the dice, hoping for a shack full of friendly badasses who don’t mind me stripping them down to their underwear for their gear. Instead, I hear gunshots and tearing metal as I approach, which quickly fade to silence.
Crouching against the wall, I crank open the palisade gate and peek around the corner.
That’s not a sea of friendly faces…
edit: I noped out of there and soon found the tiniest little 4 house town. I lured out most of the zombies one by one, then it got dark. I was starving, so I decided to do some sneaking around. I opened a door and got a face full of hazy gas, causing me to stumble around puking for awhile. In the midst of one of those episodes, I got ambushed by 2 bandits and shot to death. Another one bites the dust.

(On a side note, I’m using the CSSoundpack…women’s death sounds are mildly pornographic. I’m just saying…)
