This week, the boys are back! The Crab Goddess needs some drums trucked across state lines, and she knows she can count on Marge’s Boys to get the job done. Except this time, they’re trucking their goods in their new rig, Big Boytha, and they’ve got the law hot on their shells. Can they get the goods and get back before their new gunner, a shifty hermit crab named Dirty Lyle who totally isn’t a cop, gets them all killed or arrested? These crab truckers are going to need every trick Boytha has, because it’s going to be a long, hard ride down from Crab Mountain.
In this week’s adventure, The Missionaries take a second job for Joseph, the man in their enclave who’s looking to build a windmill. He needs them to go to a scrap metal yard to pick up pieces that can be used to construct the windmill. But first, they need to make a stop along the way to get a truck.
And the Missionaries finally encounter their first aberrant!
In this week’s installment of Alex’s Red Markets campaign, The Missionaries are tasked with retrieving the original prints of the Star Wars films from George Lucas’ secluded woodland retreat. When they arrive at the job site, however, they find that the director’s home-away-from-home has been commandeered by a group of well-armed Archivists, who have turned it into a repository of artifacts from before The Crash. Can they find a way to get the priceless films they were sent to retrieve, or will this job involve an unpleasant amount of wetwork? Listen to find out!
When a documentary filmmaker puts out a call for Takers to journey to a fallen enclave out in The Loss, The Missionaries answer! They’ll have to infiltrate Payton-Stokes Academy, a private high school designed during the paranoid days of bomb threats and active shooters, to get the footage the client wants. During The Crash, the school was an ideal spot to set up an enclave: good sight lines, tight security, backup power supply. However, because of the Romero Effect, the students and their families who took refuge there succumbed to a Vector outbreak, and the entire settlement collapsed. Whistler, Deacon and UNIX set off believing that they’re walking into an abattoir of roaming Casualties, but what they find at Payton-Stokes is far more disturbing. Can they wrap production on time and under budget, or will their simple shoot turn into a living nightmare?
For the survivors eking out a living in the enclave of Bounty, the two most essential items are water and power. Without clean water to drink from the desalination plant, the enclave would not be able to exist. Without the electricity its solar panels supply to the local enclaves, it would have nothing to trade for food and other necessities. When a power line feeding Atlantis, the enclave that controls the region’s fresh water supply, is unexpectedly severed, the leader of Bounty turns to The Missionaries to make the repair. In addition, they’ll have to set things right with Poseidon, the King of Atlantis, who insists that the interruption merits a formal apology. All goes according to plan, until a desperate plea for help from one of Atlantis’ citizens presents the Taker crew with an ethical conundrum and threatens the survival of their home enclave.
