Lamiya Survive [Q&A]
The little team is nearby Barda, a city which is the safe bridge between this city and Kularu, one of the safest zone remaining. They decided to help those who were coming in and wanted to reach Kularu, they’re positioned within Aval’s Jewelry, or what’s remains. They were making the inventory of their last expedition near the High Piks, a little group of mountain in the west. They are checking silently what they possess, making some noises while checking their bags, and their shelves. While checking Qalantar raise his head and stare at Avar with a strange look.
QALANTAR : If we travel once more, we must keep more things here, my bag becomes to be more huge that the shelve possess.
AVAR : Maybe, go make a sortation about it, my bag can be stack up for more actually. By the way, do we have news about Silapse situation ?
QALANTAR : We don’t, and i’m worried about it, if this safe place fall, Kularu will be the remaining safe place.
AVAR : Safe with many quotes
they w QALANTAR : Sure, but still that we are safer in both cities than Artelapse or Sliteïa.
QALANTAR : You forgot Asigamasa, which is the Z0.0 of the infestation.
QALANTAR : We’re fine about food nonetheless, but we must be careful anyways. He shows the water bottles. We lacks of water we must go to the lake.
AVAR : You know that we don’t have enough ammo to destroy all those Mutants in place.
QALANTAR : We don’t need it, just attract them in a trap, plus many just sink, contrary to us, we can swim, sure not for eternity but still a advantage to remind some times.
AVAR : Few people knows it by the way, unfortunately, Mutants continues to be numerous, how long they fucking live, who propagate this.
AVAR : Afernaza did it for sure, you saw the hive in the north ?
QALANTAR : If he wanted to destroy us, he would not let us survive, and reassemble.
AVAR : Maybe he has a plan ?
QALANTAR : We can’t know if he have one.
AVAR : We can’t know, we are alone, our neighbors let us here, and CSUN left all of us for dead.
QALANTAR : Do we have everything stocked ?
AVAR : I’m thinking so.
AVAR : How many ammo do you have on your AP-3 ?
QALANTAR : 22 bullets apparently, and you ?
AVAR : 15, we’re quite fine, we still have our machetes if really needed, I’m thinking that we could take some adhesive and do it to create a bayonet, but we don’t have any adhesive.
QALANTAR : Maybe in our next expedition, we’ve got plenty of food by now, except the lack of water we’re fine.
QALANTAR : Sanguinars are coming.
AVAR : Let’s run before we get caught .
QALANTAR : Yup !
AVAR : Where did he go ?
QALANTAR : Personally i don’t really want to know, Sanguinars goes in packs and I don’t want at all to have a pack of them in front of me.
AVAR : Is it raining ?
QALANTAR : Nope.
They were running back, until getting in a safe place within the trees and have a good view on the lake. After a little moment, gunshots can be heard from them, all surrounding Mutants were attracted and were hearable from afar. Both stared at each other and started to run for help. They escaped quickly, but safely to the other side of the lake and entered the trees, while running they still hear gunshots and mutants screams.
They saw on the trees the Sanguinars leaping on the trees and going on the sounds origins. Arrived they saw a group of 10 peoples, encircled, two of them possess 2 with huge guns, which seems machine guns from far. Few of them are fighting with bats, knives, machetes, and one with a sword.
Qalantar and Avar intervened and shouted to attract few mutants, they attracted the Sanguinars to them and passed throughout the mutant’s ranks to join the survivors.
AVAR : No one is wounded here ?
HUMAN :We’re quite fine for now, where do you come from ?
AVAR : Barda…
QALANTAR : Let’s talk later we got boys to put down !
HUMAN : With pleasure !
Few trees were getting smashed and an Horror appeared ; huge mutants beings with augmented human muscles and bones, with the upper part of their spine out of the skin, with a bone mace. It was accompanied by what we calls “Spidas”, humanoids with the spine out of their skin, forming a shape like a spider, easily hearable with their “toc toc” sound made by the bones while “crawling” or simply walking. They are easy to defeat, but the horror is much more resistant, Qalantar and Avar both shout :
Q&A: Out of ammo, we’re in trouble !
AVAR : What the hell does a Grimms do here ?
GRIMMS : I follow the orders to stop that mess, that you can’t even clean by yourself.
GRIMMS : I’m not here to harm you at all, if i wanted to kill ya’all, you’ll be already dead. Anyway, anyone is hurt ?
QALANTAR : I suppose not.
GRIMMS : Lemme check it.
GRIMMS : You’re wound is kind of severe, but none parasite has entered your body for now. I will clean that before one of those crappy things get into your body. But I must aware ya, the pain will be insane, because you humans can’t create or stock energy, so you’re probably gonna scream the hell.
WOUNDED HUMAN : I’m...I’m ready.
He laugh silently
WOUNDED HUMAN : I...FUCKING...CAN’T HOLD LEG, I CAN’T….HANDLE that PAIN !
GRIMMS : You must, or you’ll be a mutant in few days.
WOUNDED HUMAN : I...I’ll try…
GRIMMS : Just do it, you don’t have the time to try !
GRIMMS : Your leg is very infected, i don’t know how many times she could resist, many you must be amputated, don’t worry i can create a robotic leg for you if i got the materials. You all must decide the decision to take, i can heal him, but its only knock the hour, and maybe a day a parasite will go in his wounds and infect him.
WOUNDED HUMAN : Cut it. If it’s really necessary.
GRIMMS : Are you sure ?
WOUNDED HUMAN : Y...Yes i am ! Just do it ! They’re no tries right ?
GRIMMS : Fine, prepare some tissues to avoid a hemorrhage.
The man screamed even more louder at a point that peoples were almost feeling his insane pain through his screams. The Grimms surveyed around, took the leg and cut it in few parts and thrown it in the woods.
GRIMMS : We must do it quickly, Sanguinars can come soon. Prepare your weapons in case it happens.
AVAR : If i knew I would be aside a Grimms, at least i’ve seen everything before dying
GRIMMS : You already want to die ? The party only begins ! If you’re done, we must go, before we get surrounded, the corpses will attract them, so you’re blood…
QALANTAR : So where you come from you and your group ?
AMPUTEE : I took them from a village near Sliteïa, it’s been weeks that we walk, hopefully we still have enough food and water, but we are in lack of rest, and you two ?
AVAR : We were nearby Barda, we are installed here, helping those who wants to go to Kularu, i suppose it’s where you want to go ?
AMPUTEE : Yu...Yup.
QALANTAR : And you Grimms ?
GRIMMS : I’m in a mission, but we were two, my brother in arms dies while saving other humans, which probably didn’t see us; we killed many thousands of them, but they still are here, the Aferchites are quite sleepy on this planet, and hopefully though.
AMPUTEE : He must be proud of you now, my friend.
QALANTAR : If i’m not too much curious, what happened ?
GRIMMS : I...was obliged to kill him, a Behemoth slam him down, and many parasites enters his body while he had his nose broken, I was able to see those things entering his body, I had to cut his throat...he...he just fell in my arms, and i burned him in the Northern Mountains, and buried him.
I took the gift he had for his daughter on Sorakarios, and I promised him to take it back to her, while my mission accomplished…
GRIMMS : I forgot that you humans can be comprehensive about pain, even for those you consider as monsters.
AMPUTEE : Depends of who you take as an example.
GRIMMS : Maybe.
QALANTAR : What is your mission
GRIMMS : Help humans and if i can, kill the things controlling the mutants, if they are, or if they’re not, at least decrease the slaughter for humans. We are around 300 people from the Black Mist here, ordered by Zhar himself. I know that he knows that this mission was very dangerous and he told us how it will be, he gave to us a necklace letting us to communicate to each other wherever we are, but for now, we try to avoid it, many mutants can detect energy uses, they adapt themselves very quickly.
Behemoth : 4m gigantic mutant withhaving outgrowths on both sides of the body having a rather thick chitin, the only means to destroy it being to make a building fall on the head or to destroy it with anti-armored weapons.
Horror : One of the most imposing mutants with its 2m50 height and a physique increased via mutation. They are generally stupid mutants, having rather imposing bone outgrowths in their back, reinforcing their back. They also possess larger than average teeth, not being able really to close its mouth without cutting itself, from where the fact that we hear it breathing from afar if it does not shout.
Spida : Mutant having outgrowths in the back, being in fact its spine forming legs, the movement of the creature is done via mutation replacing its original spine, and strengthening the bones outside with light chitin, forming a kind of spider, but having free hands and legs. Can be compared to a type of Sceleratesse hybrid between humans and Arackness.
