There appears to be a small group of recording/receiving devices in a box with a note on the outside. All of them are slowly blinking with a slow red light.

I can't stay long, I'll leave these here in case someone finds it. Please only take one.

Here is some music to help you better imagine the zombo apocalypso. I decided to suggest something different than the usual suspects.

The GM told me IRL, that's just a flavor post. The real game has not started since we are waiting on a couple real life folks we know. A real opening will happen tonight, probably. He does regret putting that flavor thing up though, sorry for the confusion.

Time: ???

One by one, you all receive a letter in the mail addressed to you one week before the invited date.

Hey there! You have been officially invited to attend my birthday party on January 12th, at 232 Huntoon street. Party starts at 7 o'clock p.m. for all of you who have work on the day or have to leave early. Feel free to show up early if you want. There will be a lot of food and drinks, but feel free to bring anything you might want to have. Sorry, I won't be catering specifically to anyone who might be lactose intolerant. We also have some leftover alcohol, but not much, so bring that if you want it. Hope to see you there!

Ps. Bring me a present, or else! Or don't, I'm a postcard, not a thug.

Date: January, 12th,
Location: 232 Huntoon street
Time: 7:45 p.m.

The sky was dark as the party began to get going in full.

Light swing music played in the background from the stereo in the carpeted living room. The couch currently had a few party guests playing Halo 4 overtaking the large t.v.

In the back half of the room, a small circle of people were playing a game of Cards against humanity.

The heater was on, giving off a pleasant warmth against the chilled air from the outside.

In the kitchen there were more party goer's sitting around the table talking animatedly to one another, while the kitchen table was littered with cups, plates, napkins, a pitcher of orange juice and another with lemonade, while an assortment of food including: buffalo chicken wings from a brewery, a half devoured pepperoni pizza, a Hawaiian pizza, a vegetable platter, chips & salsa, were scattered around it. At the head of the table sat a large carrot cake, untouched as of yet.

The words "Happy Birthday Patrick" were written on top of it in green frosting.

Near the kitchen sink were a stack of red cups, a cutting board with limes and lemons, and a small assortment of alcoholic beverages. Two more party guests stood talking to one another, cups in their hands.

Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Unaware as they were, as was yet to come.

Everyone please describe your characters, also choose whether you have already arrived at the party. Or are fashionably late.

A sailor's life for me!

As a CRE (commercial real estate agent), Nodin knew just how important it was to be on time to something- that's why he was a few minutes away from the party, preparing to be within thirty minutes late, as he checked out Old Eureka Town for a deal he hoped to propose to their Chamber of Commerce some day.

From what he read in the papers it was a pass through city for the daytime, not really a place to be at night. But Nodin had become more than accustomed to the homeless, to those living off the streets, and his brother had been a drug mule in Detroit.

There was little in life, at 23, he hadn't seen already through his career choices and family events. He always found a dark method of humor to make himself laugh harder, and more often, than anyone else he ever knew.

He was chubby, but not in a computer geek way despite his large gut. Instead he was more that of a gorilla- broad shoulders, large arms, barrel chest still remaining from when he lifted weights 13x a week, and a large old beer gut despite him having only drank once every six months.

He loved checking his hazel eyes quickly in the mirror from behind his Ray Ban glasses while sucking down a cigarette with a chuckle as he said out loud Heh, look Grandma, Grandpa- I'm a flaming f*aggot.

He never got old of that joke- though he did indeed miss his Grandma Betty on his Mom's side, who passed away on Mother's Day on a Monday. He missed his Grandpa on his father's side more- though he passed on a fantastic timed day as well- the second day of his junior year SAT's.

It seemed the universe enjoyed playing a dark theme over Nodin's life- but after years and years of noticing this pattern, he accepted it and turned it into a game. How many times can I get back at the Universe before it gets back at me?

His favorite method was to turn a massive stock profit from corrupt military industrial stocks into funds for his own nonprofit ventures- which, of course, he was doing now.

After a few nighttime photos, Nodin hopped out of his cheap, $1000 car that he souped up for another grand to talk with the "locals" no one else did-

After all, there was still plenty of time to make the party, and he'd have done a good deed AND have a great story to share with his new friends.

Looks like Leo is stopping by a Walgreens on the way to the party for some lactaid pills lol. I actually am lactose intolerant lol!

Leo enters the party about 15 minutes late, after having left his backpack with his clothes and whatnot in the car, not so early that people thought he was weird but not so late that people thought him inconsiderate either. Leo is a short guy with a soccer players build and black hair done up in a high and tight. Tonight he is wearing khaki pants and a black henley shirt that says GODLESS HEATHEN across the chest.

Leo grabs a drink and begins to mingle dropping his gift off with the others. (His present incidentally is a personalized flask that says "Patrick, If you fall, I'll be there. Sincerely, Floor")

His first stop while mingling is to get in on the Cards against Humanity game. His first hand ending up with the phrase Next from JK Rowling: Harry Potter and the Assless Chaps


Male Human Fast hero lvl 3

Thomas was tall six feet or so. Slender olive skin, short dark hair and had hazel eyes. he was wearing a red ball cap, blue hoodie with a white t-shirt, blue jeans and black converse shoes. He saw the door was slightly open so he entered a small gift in his hand (it was a computer game Patrick wanted) Thomas had arrived 20 minutes late or so, he usually preferred promptness, but this was a party so he didn't worry too much. Well I guess I'll just mingle with the folks. Oh! Cards against humanity. I played that once it was fun. Thomas watched a bit as the others laughed and had a good time. Ass less chaps, I like that. Thomas' way of "mingling" started with observing. Especially when there was a lot of people around he did not know, at least not well. Patrick was his only real friend here but he was busy trying to be a good host and he didn't want to look as though they were attached to the hip. So he stood off to the side, kinda hoping someone would talk to him, or say something he had knowledge of. He heard someone say resident evil. Thomas, loves Resident Evil. But it was only said in a descriptive way not as the main conversation piece. Darn. Oh well. Ok Thomas be hip! Be cool man.

He though of all the things he would like to say how he would hope to come across to people, creative, intelligent funny, and down to earth. But getting to the point of talking to pretty much strangers out of nowhere was hard for him. He considered himself an ambivert. He had elements of an introvert with his shyness and escapism inside himself. But he also like and extrovert, liked the spotlight (If he meant to put it on himself not someone else) He did like crowds they gave him energy. And loved being social, he just was shy and guarded so he was seen as some as snobbish or disliking of people.

Patrick was alone now so Thomas decided to go talk with him. "Hey Pat. Have you talked to anyone about what they thought of my idea to do a collection of short stories from different people?" Thomas often had ideas he would try to get Patrick to be apart of. He was usually on board, but a lot of the ideas required more people. Thomas didn't have lot of friends he hung out with much these days so he would try to get Pat to recruit his.


Date: January, 12th,
Location: 232 Huntoon street
Time: 7:50 p.m.

Patrick looked at Thomas with a half smile. "Well, I did tell a fair number of people actually... but unfortunately only a few of them responded. Most just gave a fairly non-committal 'Oh hey that sounds interesting.' or 'I haven't done that in a long time. Let me get back to you on that.'" he responded with slight alterations to his voice while quoting.

"Two said that wasn't really their thing. Although, Danny said that he was interested and that he had something to show us next time he saw us. I think he's playing Halo 4 right now. You can ask him if you want."

Meanwhile at the Cards Against Humanity circle, Leo had gotten to meet his fellow compatriots in Cards against Humanity. Michael, Alyssa, Dave, and Tyler. Unfortunately Leo's luck seemed to have turned against him. After his opening hand, an entire round had gone by the circle of 5 players, including himself, and while he'd been at the top 2 choices twice now, he hadn't pulled out a win since.

It was now Dave's turn,one player before his turn to pull a black card, and he put down.

I drink to forget _____

In his hand he had: Pour one out for the Redshirts, Estrogen, Dying, Agriculture, Black people, Firing a rifle into the air while balls deep in a squealing hog, Full frontal nudity, Alcoholism, A windmill full or corpses, Laundry day with Castiel.


Male Human Fast hero lvl 3

Thomas, seeing Danny in the middle of intense match decided to let him be for the moment, and just watched the match a bit...Then he got bored, and a little motion sick. So he went into the kitchen. And ate and listened to the game being played. Ready to play when the round was over.


Male Human Fast hero lvl 3

The round was over. So Thomas asked simply, "Can I join" The folks at the table glanced and one of them said, "Sure." with others agreeing. Thomas sat next Leo. Leo was someone he never met, so Thomas decided to be a little more social. "Hey, I'm Thomas." He said trying to seem more confident.

Leo looks over and holds out his hand and says Hey man. I'm Leo. It's nice to meet you. How do you know Patrick?


Male Human Fast hero lvl 3

Thomas took Leo's hand and shook it firmly. "Yeah nice meeting you too. I met Pat in a job we both worked. The California Conservation Corps. And have been hangin with the jerk, for around five years or so now. You"

As Nodin finished his shared pizza with a few of the homeless, he hopped back in his car while checking the time on his iPhone S***! S@$$ s@&~ s+*!!

Seeing that he was going to be nearly an hour late to the party, he typed the address into the iPhone as he lit a cigarette and cranked Howlin' Wolf as he drove off- had to make an entrance to a new group of strangers somehow, after all.

Luckily the house was only six or so minutes away, and Nodin took a sigh of relief as he continued to jam and smoke.

Pulling up to the enter description of house here party, Nodin parked a little ways down from the house, most likely to be protested by his neighbors in the morning. He knocked several times as he put his keys and iPhone neatly tucked away in his pocket.

Before the door was answered he realized he was still smoking S*+!! He yelled as he threw it down on the stone patio, tapping it out quickly with his foot.

Time: 8:00 p.m.

The door front door opened at the top of the steps and Patrick stuck his head outside. Seeing Nodin stamping out the cigarette, he waited patiently for a moment and then said

"Nodin, glad you could make it. Come on in."

"Hey! Close the door you're letting all the warm air out." Came a call from further inside.

Those inside saw that it was Michael who had turned away from the card game.


Thomas was not sure what else to say to Leo. So he just focused on his cards as he listened to the people around him chit chat.

Thomas then heard Patrick answer the door and felt the chill blow through him. He secretly appreciated Michael's call.

Leo calls out Gah! That's fricken freezing! After getting nailed by the cold draft. I thought California was supposed to be hot. He says losing another hand. I guess computer humor isn't this crowd's thing. He thinks to himself after playing "a powerpoint presentation" with the black card "Hey baby, why don't you come back to my house and I'll show you_____________"


Male Human Fast hero lvl 3

Thomas smiles wryly at Leo's comment. He then replies, "Yeah a lot of people imagine southern California type weather when they come here. But here in the north it ranges between 30 to 70 all year 'round. It's rare it goes higher or lower."

Thomas, felt instant irritation, when Nodin spoke. "Wow. This guy is loud. And he seems so obnoxious. What's he looking around for with that stupid smile? And now he is talking about how great he is. Oh fun...I...I think I hate his ass." Thomas didn't realize he was giving Nodin a piercing look. He never felt such instant hate, or had hated anyone at all before. Nodin had opened up a new world to him. I am sure I wouldn't actually hate you Nodin. But this seems to fun to pass up.;P

Nodin laughed at Leo's remark Eh, sort of- I drive a beater car, after all. Saves me a boat load of cash! Now, if only I would switch to GEICO....

Nodin then laughed at his own joke Aaaaah yeah. Either of you smoke? Bumming cigs is the best way to make a friend, after all!

Leo shakes his head No sorry man. Quit a few years ago. I'd prefer to die from something more fun than lung cancer...you know like skydiving, or getting gored by a minotaur or something like that.


Male Human Fast hero lvl 3

"I wish Nodin would get gored right now." Thomas thought darkly. "No. I don't smoke." Thomas replied coldly, not even looking at Nodin now.


Male Human Fast hero lvl 3

Thomas laid down a card and said, "King me." A few people laughed, some looked confused. Thomas realized what he had done and chuckled sheepishly. "Damn it. I forgot what game this was. It's Nodins fault." He looked up at Nodin, irritably and said quickly, "Why the hell are you here?" He realized that this made him look like a complete jerk in front of everyone, as he was trying to make a good impression. So he quickly back peddled with, "Uuuhh... I mean how do you know Patrick?" He forced a smile as he looked Nodin, in the eyes. Even feigning kindness to this guy made him want to vomit.


Date: January, 12th,
Location: 232 Huntoon street
Time: 8:02 p.m.

Patrick smiled as Nodin walked in and he closed the door. There was an audible sigh of relief from several of the party goers.

"Well Nodin if you're..." he started to say, but was cut off by Nodin brushing past him to get to Cards Against Humanity game. Patrick just shrugged and turned to follow.

As the conversation between the three began to turn sour, the game slowed notably. A number of the others in the group gave everyone a momentarily concerned glance. Even some of the people on the couch playing Halo turned their heads for a moment.

"Whoa guys, it's supposed to be Cards Against humanity. Not us against each other." Michael cut in with a small laugh. The mood in the room seemed to lighten at that.

"Actually Thomas, we met him online. He was in that one game I ran a while back. Also, yeah I'll ask that if you have to smoke you do so outside in the backyard. I have a rule against smoking inside. I can show you if you want. Also if you're hungry there's food in the kitchen." Patrick cut in, gesturing for Nodin to follow.

Oh please- I'm not like most smokers. If anyone here is allergic, I won't even lit up until I'm in my car.

Smoking in the house, I don't know if you've ever done it, but, uh, it's gross- but thanks Patrick! What a host what a host!

Nodin then looked at Thomas with a grin Oh come now Thomas! Don't you like making new friends? Now, look- Nodin walked forward a few paces, holding out his pack of Marlboro Red 100's to Thomas You might be cranky now- but one smoke with this and it'll feel as if your flying on a cloud- nicotine is the greatest thing there is!

Nodin then shrugged But maybe I just prefer my poison in a white paper rolled cash crop, instead of in a liquid in the bottle, ha ha ha ha! Come on!

Finally, turning to the people at the table Nodin nodded Aye! He king'd you! Why is no one giving him his crown???

Nodin, as he said this, moved along with Patrick as Patrick showed him the backyard I was being serious, by the way. Do you know if smoke triggers anyone's asthma? It happens to my best friend, so I try pretty hard to not smoke so much around him. I only smoke three cigs a day, so it's no big deal regardless, you know?

It was becoming clearer and clearer that Nodin didn't just talk a lot, but he could talk a lot about probably anything with half-way decent material on hand.

After Patrick takes Nodin out back to the yard, Thomas looks at Leo and says, "If we hear a gun shot, we'll know Pat did the right thing." He chuckled dryly at his tasteless joke. Then said to himself, "Some people." The next card played was: "What's making that sound?" Thomas put down "That ass!"

Leo plays "STEPHEN HAWKING TALKING DIRTY"


Outside the back door was a small porch that led down to the backyard. A cement walkway went around the yard until it split into a T section. The left path led from the house to a garage, whole the right path led to a worn down tool shed. The yard itself was not large but it was sectioned off all around by a 6 foot high wooden fence. Two trees, one a small but sturdy looking apple tree and the other a tall palm tree were placed at either side of the property.

"Hmm. Well that's something I suppose." Patrick mused while staring ahead at the alleyway on the other side of the fence that led to a street. "I don't mind too much myself, but I don't think anyone who's here is asthmatic. Though you may want to ask them just to be sure."

As Patrick stopped talking, in the distance there were sounds of police car sirens steadily getting closer. It sounded like more than one.

"Heh, oh man this town." he said nodding towards the street they could see. "That's Buhne street, it's one of the main thouroughfares. Lots of traffic goes by. Also lots of emergency vehicles use it to get around.

The Exchange

Male Human Charismatic Hero/ 3

Nodin looked back and forth as the sirens went off Listen, I uh, don't mean to be a "hero" or rude to your party, but... How far is this Buhne Street? I usually stay out of people's business, but I still like to watch over whatever people and town I'm around- you know? Never know when someone might need some help, ha ha ha!

Nodin lit a cigarette as he spoke, blowing the exhale directly up and into the air so it couldn't possibly hit anyone in the face. Blech, ha ha, you know, as much as I love cigarettes, man they just stink. Hahahaha.

As Nodin kept his cigarette in his mouth, he pulled up his iPhone and began to search for local police reports and ticket citations that were always posted-

It was always a good thing to be aware of his surroundings after all, and since he'd never been outside the Midwest until now, paranoia wasn't necessarily such a bad thing.

Nodin scrolls through the news in his iPhone and sees the one on murderer and turns the screen with the article open to Patrick as he blows more smoke straight into the sky Yeah, I bet global warming is gonna looooove that, ha ha!

Yeah, looks like this "Derrik Redman" is probably what's going on over there. Took a minute, but I found it! Ha ha! So, Patrick- Nodin fully turned off his iPhone to ensure it stayed at full charge as long as possible- he hated being that "one guest" that just "had to charge" his phone What do you do, man? What are you up to? Looks like you gotta lot of friends, eh? Ha ha ha!


Time: 8:13 p.m.

Patrick turned away from looking at the street. "Well Buhne is barely a block in front of us, we're actually looking at it now. As for what I do... uh well, I just work a pretty low key job and try to keep my social life alive mostly through r.p. games, parties, and just hanging out with folks." Just then a sudden gust of wind shot through both of them. It was chilly but it had a distinct feel of moisture to it too.

"Speaking of parties, I'd better get back to hosting mine before I get rained on. I wouldn't stay out here too long if I were you. These storms start turning pretty nasty fast."

Then he turned and went back inside.

The Exchange

Male Human Charismatic Hero/ 3

I'll be in in just a minute ha ha ha, though a storm doesn't sound too bad...

As Patrick made his way inside, Nodin began to dive into the ambiance of peace and quiet through the muffling sounds of nature.

Outside was his home away from home- and a storm was his morning cigarette, like the greeting of an old friend lost. You couldn't stop the storm, only face it or hide from it.

Nasty fast, huh? I'm a big guy- let's see what Mother Nature can do in California that it can't do to me in Michigan, ha ha ha!

Nodin waited to hear the first crack of lightning as he grinded out the half of a cigarette he *did* smoke onto the ground, then put the unfinished but in his pack after ripping it down to the butt so it didn't reek of smoke.

Come on come on, stop being such an introvert and get inside already fat ass! You love people don't you? You're here to see them! You're a commercial real estate agent for crying out loud!

Nodin debated for nearly five minutes the benefit of smoking in a storm until the rain put it out instead of going inside and laughing his ass off to Cards Against Humanity. I'm a smoker, five, ten more minutes, they'll just think I had a long drive right? Besides, I come in from the storm, more to talk about!

Nodin's introvert/extrovert ass will wait until the storm is audible for all inside to hear before braving a cigarette in it for a minute or two, then throwing it out and heading inside to party

Leo listens and hears the sound of sirens, being from the east coast and mostly a city boy, the sirens don't worry him at all. He's pretty used to it. Looking back down at his cards he says Anyone know where the bathroom is?

When directed, he goes to take care of business, looking around at the bathroom in the meantime and looking out the bathroom window at the flashing lights in the distance.


Time: 8:18 p.m.
Location: 232 Huntoon Street

As Leo stared out the window, the lights and sirens of two police cars came and went. Shortly after the sounds of a fire truck came followed shortly by another squad car.

In the backyard Nodin had seen much the same, but also noted more directly as the first specks of drizzling rain started to show themselves. As the wind picked up a little higher, he noted the swaying of the palm leaves increased. The sounds of the distant sirens and general traffic were quickly overtaken by nature.

Inside the primary part of the house none of the other party guests were aware of these developments as the party got more lively with the addition of a cheese platter, sweets, and more alcohol.

Thomas caught the attention of Danny who had finally finished a PVP match on Halo 4. "Hey Thomas! How you been man?" he asked with genuine interest.

The first round of Cards Against Humanity had ended with Alyssa as the victor. The music had changed to more dance tunes as someone took over as DJ and there was some talk of starting a round of Beer Pong or Rage Cage soon.

Location: H street- (Traveling)

Driving through downtown Eureka was not so bad right then, for the night time drive and poor weather meant fewer people on the road. Laura thought to herself while driving down H street. It was pretty much a straight shot until she got to Huntoon Street. Though it was obvious that a pretty bad storm was coming, as evidenced by the big drops landing on her windshield and by how fast the trees were starting to move. She would be there in a few minutes however, probably before the big storm hit.

As she turned a bend she could see at the far end of her view the flashing of emergency vehicle lights race by the stoplights on Buhne street. Fortunately they were heading away from where she was going.

Patrick looks at Leo with a moment of confusion and then interest. But then a moment after he sighs. "Any other regular day and I would be all over checking that out, Leo. But since I'm the only one here hosting a party it would be the worst if I were to just up and leave. Besides, they're not parked outside or in the alleyway, right?... You didn't do anything wrong, did you?" he asked, his tone taking on a conspirator tone.

Thomas noticed the weather staring to get more aggressive, and it made him a little nervous, "Hope the power doesn't go out..." He then heard Danny speak to him. Thomas greeted Danny in an equally friendly way, "Hey Danny how ya doing?" Thomas and Danny spoke for a few moments about various things as they took a break from games and stuffed their faces with hot wings.

Danny then got called over for another round of Halo. He asked Thomas if he would like to join but Thomas turned him down (He was horrible at first person shooters)

After Danny went back Thomas Headed to the bathroom to wash his hands of hot wing sauce. (The kitchen sink was occupied) When he was near he heard Patrick and Leo's conversation. This sounded like quite the exciting little adventure so Thomas chimed in, "Hey Leo, I'll come check it out with you." He didn't know Leo well but he liked how he thought.

Leo smiles and says A quick peek won't hurt. So long as Patrick's not offended that we head over for a bit. Come on Thomas, let's see what's up.

Assuming it is ok, Leo will head off toward Buhne Street, keeping an eye out for trouble/fun.

As the storm picked up, Nodin grinned from ear to ear Alright, I think that's enough loner time for the next few days. Let's go see how Patrick's awesome party is going.

Nodin ashed his cigarette on the side walk and, ensuring it did not smell of smoke to the nth degree, put it inside his pack wrapped in the pack's wrapping foil and headed inside to find Patrick and view the latest card dealings for Cards Against Humanity. Yeah it's any second now before these people go crazy with sex things and all that- that will probably be when I take a nap. ha ha! He thought to himself as he opened the door with a creak and wiped off his shoes, greeting the first people he saw inside.

Thomas was feeling a wave of excitement as he headed out the door with Leo. He let Leo lead since this was his idea.
