After they left the city, I felt that the threat of obliteration was lifted. How do I keep finding friends like this?
-Yo-yo on the Radio
After a month of rest and developing the economy of Waco, the Adventurers renamed themselves Apocalypse Now!; The 7 Magnificent Friends. They set out to meet Deadeye Dan in Lufkin for his aide in defeating the Fiends. Senator’s son is currently being held by the Fiends and the members of AN have decided to save him for his support in overthrowing New Texas Republic.
After leaving Waco in fanfare, the members of AN rode their vehicles across the desert towards the smoldering remains of Lufkin. On their way, AN spotted an acid storm approaching and proceeded to take shelter in a nearby cave. The cave was inhabited by a super mutant and 2 centaurs which the party promptly disposed of with lightning blasts, shotgun blasts and grenade blasts.
During night time, music was heard playing out over the wastes and the members of AN thus met STAR, the one-humanoid band. STAR was looking for his friend, the previously murdered super mutant, which the members of AN lied and told STAR that they’ve not seen such a person. After directing STAR towards Waco with a letter of introduction.
+ Allegiance STAR
After falling asleep to wait out the storm, they were given “presents” in the night. Each contained 1 poisoned sandwich, 12 caps and a letter that read.
To the Members of Apocalypse Now! At your earliest convenience, please make your way to my tower in Lubbock. Do so after saving (Senators Son).
Unknown to most members of the group, tiny letters at the end stating “where I will give you the antidote.”
It was found by Ziggy that the poison was of the (Jimijango?) albeit a synthesized version. Each person that ate the poisoned sandwich would lose 1 point from all stats each day. After finding this out, they doubled their speed towards Lufkin to find Deadeye Dan and thus discern the location of (senator’s son).
On the way to Lufkin, Ziggy spotted a Fiends encampment in the distance. After strategering, they decided to approach the fiends pretending to be part of the Faceless and have Kirk Mask do the signing to the fiends. After
selling renting out the (charismatic hero) to the fiend leader (now called Tri-boob) for a strange backward monkey three way, AN each received a dose of Super Soldier Serum. While at the fiend encampment, a fiend stabbed Thor at which he shouted.
ODIN’S COCK! YOU DARE THREATEN THE MIGHTY THOR WITH SUCH A PUNY WEAPON?
This shot lightning and caused the fiends to become hostile which was a great difficulty as they were all hopped up on super-soldier serum at the time. Buddy Scout at this time was off rigging all the Fiend dune buggys with explosives while this was occuring. Ziggy dropped a smoke grenade to try and make a hasty retreat with (faceman) driving the combat wagon. A fiend used a rocket launcher and managed to blow out the backside of the vehicle and left it with only two wheels. Ziggy stabbed Thor with a dose of super-soldier serum at which he also experienced an adrenaline rush causing him to jump the 20 feet from the destroyed car towards the Fiend’s battle humvee.
After knocking out the rocket launcher Fiend at the top of the humvee, (faceman) decided to swing the car around to Tri-Boob. At this time, buddy scout had managed to weigh down the throttle on a bomb strapped dune buggy and send it off into the smoke causing it to explode in the middle of the fighting and tip over the battle humvee. As the rest of the dune bugees started exploding, (Faceman) asked “So are we in?” Using his powerful sexual magnetism on Tri-Boob, he was able to successfully seduce the Fiend leader IN THE MIDDLE OF COMBAT causing her to bite out his lower lip in a fit of passion and knocking him out.
After an exchange of words with Tri-Boob AN decided to upright the battle humvee in order to hijack it and flee the scene. Managing to run into Tri-Boob on the way out, Ziggy shot her with a harpoon gun which she used to try and hoist herself into the vehicle. During the chaos, Buddy Scout managed to sneak off with the unconscious body of (Faceman) and get picked up by`. Thor managed to throw Tri-Boob off of the vehicle and as she was being dragged, Ziggy shot two rockets at her and managed to sever the rope in the bomb blast.
