    I find it suprisingly ironic that the Freeland raiders took some slaves even though the cities name is 'Freeland.' :lol:

    Also, I find it ironic that the Mt. Pleasant area was 'unsuitable for farming.' In reality right now its almost entirely fields around here (And yes, I live nearby IRL). :p

    Hey,

    To: Leader of Appomattox
    From: Mila Quinn, Commander of the Atomic Foxes


    I would like to offer you a deal. The opportunity to join the Atomic Foxes and relocate to what is one of the last arable places on earth for farming. I have personally seen this land with my own eyes and felt the moist soil with my bare hands. I will supply any equipment that is needed to start farming as soon as possible. Join us and we will never see want for food.

    Joining us will give you access to medical care, education and military training. There is a place for everyone in the Atomic Foxes.

    But this offer has a time limit. We have to move fast before any other population centers find our golden fields.

    The question isn't where, but when.
    Auxiliary Building Beta, 2nd Floor Resource Management moved slowly across the landscape, giving fair distance to the Mr. Handy that was sifting among the rubble. Nearby, members of Auxiliary Building Beta, Security Division A milled about, eye the landscape ahead and behind. Every now and then, Eric Monson, Junior Porter, would dart towards the robot, picking up a roughly square piece of scrap metal, and would deposit it in the hand cart being pulled by the others. It was early morning, and a good while before any of them could take a lunch break.

    ".. and then I heard Hernandez from security over in Aux Alpha got got an extra ration." Mitch Tatum, Senior Porter was whispering, but not quietly.

    "Oh yeah, wasn't he the one the one who took out a ghoul with a single shot? Man, he is..." Tiffany Hill, Junior Secretary, a tall and ditzy woman, had begun to raise her voice when she was cut off.

    "Both of you shut yer pie holes, before Tom writes you guys up!" Blake Burton, Assistant Manager, was a study fellow, whose nervous demeanor stood in contrast to his large physique. He was one of the more recent immigrants to Pellicle. He nervous nature had helped move up in the last few years. "Worse, your voices might attract a ghoul. It's bad enough the noise Handy makes."

    "Relax, Burton. It's not like security is going to let anything get close to us. Besides, this part of town was already cleared out." Mitch smiled. Mitch and Burton were as close to friends as coworkers could be, but their personalities contrasted like oil and water.

    "Yeah, you say that and-" Suddenly gunshots rang out. Resource Management around to see a single ghoul running among the pile of debris. Several more shots rang out, but the ghoul kept running. Suddenly, the ghoul ran up a debris pile, and leaped off of the pile towards Resource Managment. A few more shots went off, and the ghoul landed on Burton. Yelling, Burton began to hit and punch the ghoul until he realized that it had been shot in the head. Quickly, his co-workers helped him out from under the pile. Burton gave Mitch a dirty look. "What did I say? I told you something would happen."Mitch smiled. He had lost his composure when the ghoul leaped, and was relieved to see his friend was fine.

    "But what did I say? Well, sure, the body got close, but it wasn't alive. So in a way, I was right. Come on, let's get back to work before Tom writes us up. If it makes you feel better, you can have my jello cup." Burton, who had been frowning, raised an eyebrow.

    "You know that's right."

    Yep, that about covers it. I'll be posting a 48-hour warning at some point after the completion of the CI update for this one.

    Any chance you could quickly let me know what the max carrying capacity of a canoe is, then?

    Canoes can fit 5 people with supplies. Rafts can fit considerably more, but must either be pulled by a canoe or allowed to flow with a current.

    As promised this is the 48ish hour warning to get those orders in. I'll be working on any orders marked "early" tonight or tomorrow night.

    They will agree if you provide safe and secure escort, as well as allow people to retain their personal firearms and supplies.
