Just Outside the City: And then there were none...
« on: May 23, 2011, 02:21:42 PM »
Tons of sitches and people read before this one moment...

The Five Points Empire is at work with Mrs. Dubya and her manufactories in Albany.  After some deliberation, the Hudson River Compact rides to aid her.

They attack in a brutal multi-pronged attack with Dent's Demons falling like old world para-troopers from the overpass that goes over their camp, Bullet's new truck spitting out heavy calibre machine gun fire and Baby's Boys riding in like a biker calvalry.

In creeps Marsh, under fire, with his tribal cult.  He comes face to face with number I, the creepy brainer kid, one of four left in Five Points.  The kid surrenders when Marsh goes aggro.

It is the first big battle like this where no one was shot-up terribly, no mad dashes to find a doctor, no comas, no scars.  Their losses are minimal.

I watched Padraic really think about this and then, in the middle of every thing he says, "Fuck this.  I walk up to the kid and touch him on the forehead, 'Go kill your brothers.'" He rolls for his move, puppet strings and nails it.

"Then I hand him his gun back."

The kid get's in one of the armored school-buses and drives away.

The Five Points Empire is done.

There aren't any really threatening groups out there anymore. I think they will spend the summer exploring, securing and governing this section of New York State that they have carved out for themselves.

It was one of those holy shit moments where everyone's jaw dropped to the floor, mine entirely included.

"We should take him prisoner."

"Will it work? Does brainer shit work on other brainers?"

"Yeah, it works," I assured them I wasn't going to pull some dick move.

Padraic said, "No, we'd take him prisoner and get shit information.  Fuck this.  Let's somebody else do our work for us for once."

That's awesome Judd.  Moments like that are why I still game.  If you work up any new Fronts be sure to post them.
