(dramatic music) – It took 10 years to push
them back, but we did. What was once a prosperous
river trade, the Mississippi, is now the front line. The eastern states
supply the river states, and what’s left of the U.A. live out their bigger days self-policing. What is the West hiding? Nobody really knows for sure, but we’re alive, and
this is the new frontier. – Hello everybody, and welcome back to We’re Alive: Frontier. We have quite an adventure ahead of us, so let’s get right down to it, shall we? How you feeling, everybody? (groaning) – Nervous.
– Great. (laughing) – Yeah.
– Feeling frisky. – Asher’s got a little bit of some superficial puncture wounds. – I’m okay.
– Sitting on his forearms. – It’s called a flesh wound.
– I’m fine. – But hey, you took a
baseball bat like a champ. – Thank you, thank you.
– Oh, no kidding. – Right?
– Right, right. – Went like this. – He sent him straight up like. – At the same times, it
seems like you either have bleeding out, dying, or
dead raiders in your hands, (laughing) and unfortunately, they
have managed to move the hand cart that is
carrying your vital supplies from the rail driver. – Just some of them. – Some of them, taking them
down the rail a little bit, so farther away from the
rail cart than what it was, but because of much of your efforts, they didn’t get terribly
far, 15 to 20 feet, yes. – My efforts.
– All you, Bandaid. – So clearly you. You scared the bejesus out of ’em. – You rattled that cage so loud– – You scared ’em, rattled their cage. – That the cat came coming. – Oh no.
– Whoa. – This is not my fault. (laughing) – Aww, it was a team effort. – So when we last left you, you
had finished off the raiders who were unloading the rail driver claiming your goods for their own, pushing the cart down about
15, 20 feet down the line, you heard the large (screeching) scream of one of the infected who
was standing as a sentry looking to see where all
of the commotion came from, and right now, she
seems to be the only one peering with an aura of the morning sun kind of pushing behind her.
– Aww. – So she is essentially standing there on the top of the second boxcar next to the service
station, and at this point, I have to ask you a
very important question. What do you wanna do? – Spin and shoot. I’m on top of the thing. Let me get at her. (laughing) – Well, I believe we actually have two unresolved roles here. – Yes.
– Ah, that’s right, your degrees of success
– Go team. – still with her, so we
can do this a few ways. If you would like, since
essentially this encounter is, for all purposes with the raiders, done, but we’re beginning a new one, I’ll allow you to spend degrees of success to do things outside of your actions, or if you’d like, we can simply turn those into survival points that
I can then take from you. It will add to your pool if you wish, and you can spend that in the form of gear like maybe some stuff that
the raiders had on them or however you wish. – Can I suggest something? – It’s your turn. (laughing) – I think that I should
get the rail driver going, like start fueling it up.
– Okay. – Get it going,
– I agree. – And then start getting
our shit back in there, and then you guys can
take care of this infected so we can get the hell out. – Word.
– Alright. – You know?
– Can you use your degrees of success to kind of speed
run to get over there? – You know what? In fact, since you have,
how many did you have? One or two? – Two.
– Two, resolved. I will start contributing
towards the rail driver getting up and running. – Thank you. – Jenny basically hears this thing, and her first instinct is what? – Get that boiler going. Let’s get this train moving. – Alright, choo-choo.
– Choo-choo. – Yeah. – So she’s running over
to the rail driver. – You let us know you’re
doing that, right? – Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m getting this going. – There’s no point in being quiet anymore. (laughing) – Yeah, yeah. – How about you, Wraith>Is there any good thing
you’d like to resolve your leftover degrees of success with? – Yeah, I mean, I’d like to add and to be able to dash
toward the hand cart and try to get on it and
survey to see what the most, is there anything that I
think is just super critical – Great.
– on that cart. – So then I will allow you
to spend that last degree of success in order to
reposition yourself. – Well, I actually have two. – You have two? – I have two degrees. – Look at you. (cheering) – Alright, then even better. I will just take that
last degree of success off of you to tell you that
if you want to purchase enough survival points in
order to loot something from one of the raiders
that are bleeding out from the rail cart. – Okay, I was actually most interested in what was on the hand cart itself. – Right, so that’s fair. You don’t need a degree of success in order to get in extra boxes. – Okay.
– But this is just something that you can do as you’re on. I’m basically rewarding
you with some extra gear. – Alright. Also, one other question. When I saw these guys starting
to pump the hand cart, did it seem faster than I could run? Or if I was carrying something? – Oh, if you were carrying something? – No, I mean it takes
time to get those things up and moving. – Okay. – Like, you gotta build
momentum with the rail cart. – Yeah. – You know? – Alright.
– So, I will– – I may just be doing a, you know. When you go, was it Supermarket Sweeps or (drowned out by laughing) – Yes.
– Shopping or whatever. It must be one of those. – I can tell you for sure
– I love it. – since you ran and
repositioned yourself over there that undoubtedly, the
lot of what they grabbed was food, water, ammunition,
and clearly medical supplies. – Just grab it all.
– So there’s a large amount of crates, and based on
what you’re seeing in there, it’s they got a lot on there. I mean you could estimate
presumably that about a quarter of the total rail driver’s capacity is sitting on this hand
cart at the moment. – Okay. – You know? So you can hear the moans
of the two bleeding men as they are basically attempting to sustain anything, and you can
hear them muttering curses under their breath as they’re basically questioning what line of action led them to this result in their life. (laughing) – Where did I go wrong? (laughing) – Okay.
– But they don’t look capable – I’m reevaluating my life choices. – Of, they don’t pose any threat to me. – They don’t pose any threat to you, and if anything, the guns
that they were holding on to have probably fallen out of their hands, and then any melee weapons
they would have been holding on to, they barely
have the strength to stand, let alone get up and swing a bat at you. – So you said I could
use a degree of success to try to get some new
piece of gear off of them? – Yeah, I mean– – Is there anything great
that I can look for? – Well, so there is a– – Mediocre. (laughing) – modified baseball bat the same way as the one that Asher got hit with. Not the exact same one, but similar. – Nope, sword beats bat, sorry. – For your one degree
of success, I will posit that you can purchase
essentially one of them immediately if you want. – I’ll grab the gun. – Okay.
– Yeah, no matter who uses it, that’s just better.
– Come on. – So, narrate it for me, would you? – Okay, so I look at
the slumped over raider, and he’s gurgling on his
blood and stuff like that, and I go, don’t worry,
you’re coming with us, but you won’t survive. – Alright.
– And you won’t need this. And I pull the gun out.
– So as you’re grabbing this gun, you can hear
the last gasping howl of the creature that
is sitting on the top, as you can start to see
that it is leaping on to the boxcar that is in front of it, and all of you can see the
rail driver in front of you. Now, you could tell that it was unloaded from a nondescript boxcar earlier, so it’s much, much smaller,
or only a little bit smaller than one of these larger
containers, as you can see. Now the rail driver is a custom piece of engineering done by Stern Industries. It is essentially a large armored car that has been modified
to burn coal and wood in order to heat steam and drive forward like the locomotives of old. Now, behind that, it
is pulling essentially a modified armored motor home. – Really? – Yeah, it’s one of the
ones that’s a camper that has two tiers onto it which even has a small hatch in which you can see it has a kill box up at the very top to be able to provide a
scout advantage point, so as a result, it’s fairly top heavy as far as the second rail goes. Now this single-armored
car has been adjusted, and you know this Jenny,
because it’s one of the one things that you asked about, and Asher, this is one of
the most difficult things the company has ever
done, but the rail driver is an all-terrain vehicle,
which essentially means that with the proper
time, effort, and energy, it can be taken off of the tracks – Huh.
– Word. – in order to be driven
on regular terrain. – Good.
– Good. – Choo-choo, that’s awesome. (laughing) – I like it.
– Alright, but, you know, this all requires new
wheels, putting it up, jacking it up, putting it back down. It’s not a quick thing. – Sure.
– Go go gadget rail driver. – No. (laughing) If only. – Let’s do that what they
are not being attacked by creatures there, so
– Yeah, and everything that you’ve managed to
ask for is loaded in on this, except for, of course, in the motor home part, you
can see that the back door, which it looks a lot like a
ramp that would come down, has been opened, and now
it’s laying on the tracks as the stuff is being unloaded. So, Jenny. – Jenny.
– Alright. – How are you feeling
about taking point on this? – I feel great about it. – Alright, well why don’t
you get everybody’s intent for me, and I will shut up. – Okay.
– Unless something happens. – Okay, alright. So, Jenny, me, I am getting
the rail driver up and running. Ah, okay, who’s next? – I’m gonna be heading
over to the rail driver in the crow’s nest on
the top to shoot out of, and reloading on the way. – Okay, great. – Oh, Asher, I should
probably tell you as well, too, that you can start to feel your hands beginning to get wet. – Yeah, yeah. (groaning) – As blood is beginning
to pool inside of your very, very new gloves. – Nails do that. – I’m gonna spin around and
shoot at this evil lady. – There we go. – Dot com.
– Dot com. – Alright, Bandaid’s gonna
tuck and roll and book it. (laughing) – Run!
– To the rail driver? – Bandaid, book it. – To the rail driver. – Alright, who’s next? – What a really nice view right now. – I am going to grab some of
the climbing rope and stuff that I have around my
waist, and I wanna try to loop it through what I think look like the most important ammo boxes. – Ooh, yes.
– I mean, I’m pretty strong. Is it something that I could reasonably– – You could carry a box. – move at a decent rate with one crate? – You can move at half speed. – That’s what I’m gonna do, so cover me. – Grabbing a crate.
– Okay. It’s my plan. – Wraith’s running with a box. – Yep.
– Great. Let’s get this going. – So speed. I should probably allocate speed dice ’cause that’s important. Jenny, you are rolling three dice – ‘kay.
– for speed. Asher, you are rolling
three dice to reposition, reload and do shooting. – Dear lord. – Ray, you are shooting, and
you’re not out at all, right? – Nope.
– So you’re at one speed dice. – Bandaid, you’re
booking it to the rail D. – Hardcore parkour. – Hardcore parkour. (laughing) It’s just movement, it’s just two speed. – Two. – You’re moving a lot.
– Okay, alright. – You’re moving a lot, and then, unless you want to do
something else with it. Like if you wanna run all
the way to the rail driver just full speed, then it’s two speed dice. – Cool, okay. That’s fine, that’s fair. – Wraith. (laughing) ♪ Box time. ♪ – Yeah, I’m legging a box. – I’m giving you three as well. Actually, no, what I’m
gonna probably do is, nah, you haven’t challenged
your endurance yet ’cause this is the first box, so. – This is gonna be the only box, I’ll tell you that right now. (laughing) – You got this. I believe you, man. – You can get the next box.
– So, three speed. – No, I’m bleeding. – Alright, everybody. – We all doing this? – Go for it. – And here we go. (dice rolling) – Okay.
– Okay, great. So Ray, go ahead. – I spin around to shoot this chick. I have an exploding damage die as well. – Nice.
– But I got, like I said, a gazillion degrees of success, so. – Is that five or a gazillion? – It’s five.
– Okay. – It’s five since that’s the cap. – If he’s gonna ask, say gazillion. – A gazillion equals the same as five. – They’re the same.
– He gave you the option. – Alright, so here’s
your degree of success. – How many degrees of
success would it take for me to get off that and run either to the rail driver or to– – You could blow your last one in order to also hop down after the shot. – But just hop down, not get anywhere? – Nope, just hop down. – You’d be (drowned out by speaker) – ‘Cause headshot is three damage dice and ignores all defense. – Right, so you’d be doing is, yeah, you’d have your two
dice plus your exploding, plus that four would be another
three damage dice to roll. – So she’d be– – And ignore defense which is dumb. – Well, we’ll see. – Your legendary–
– So yeah, let’s just get rid of her. I don’t like her. – You’re legendary at telling
yourself you get bad– – Yeah, no, I can’t stand this chick. – This is showing your true power. – I can’t stand this chick.
– I can’t stand this chick. – So we also have this exploding die. – Yep.
– Yep, you’re right. – So let’s add that,
so right now it’s six, plus five is 11. (groaning) – 11 plus eight is 19. – Explain to me its grizzled fate. (laughing)
– Yeah. – I turn around
– She’s mid-air, too. – To continue my, yes, to continue my long litany of expletives, I
scream out really loud, not now, motherfucker as she’s screaming (monster growling) through the air, and get eyes
on her, right in the head. (gunshot exploding) – And she tumbles backwards right off of the second story of that boxcar. (body smacking ground) Splat. You can actually hear the bones
crunch from this far away. – Now that’s what I’m talking about. – That was a 180 nose go. (laughing)
– Yeah. – That was awesome. – Yeah.
(laughing) – Excellent.
– Cool. And then– – I’m still pissed so
I’m jumping off this box. – Bandaid starts clapping. – Right. – Just keep running. Shut up. (laughing) – Well, then yes, spin that last one and you can hop down, at least down to the bottom of the boxcar, ’cause you have about two little crates. You can jump down from there, so. – Word. – Boink, boink, boink.
– Boink, boink. – Boink, boink. – My man.
– Bounce, bounce. (descending tone) – Alright, great. Bandiad, you’re up next. – I’m hoofing it. – Hoofing it, alright. So let’s get you right
over to where Stingray is. – Oh, I would definitely go this way. – Oh, okay. – Stingray wouldn’t, for cover. – Yeah, I didn’t realize. I didn’t know if you
were gonna go in front of that boxcar or behind it, so– – In between the cover. – Alright, well you
could definitely make it to the rail driver with
(drowned out by speaker). – Huzzah.
– You made it. – High five.
– Yay. – Asher. – Alright, well, yeah, I
huff it to the rail driver, set myself up in the top. It has the viewing area,
right, to shoot out of? – Yeah, right. So you drop and pop a new one in. – Mmhmm.
– Alright, great. And then you’re up in the crow’s nest? It is, by the way, a very
well-built armored mobile home. – Thank you.
– Nice. – And the ladder leading
up into it was to get to the crow’s nest, the kill box, kinda just like the inside of a submarine. There’s a sleeping quarters on top and sleeping quarters on bottom, so just like a parrot
just kind of like inside of a submarine, there’s
just a single ladder that kinda takes you
up to the second level, which is where you’re gonna be. – We Stern don’t mess around. – Right. Wraith, you’re up with six next. – Okay, now I have one degree of failure. – Okay, alright. So you wanna tell me what happened? – I didn’t make it all the way back to the rail driver, that’s for sure, (laughing) and I didn’t wanna strain myself, so I put down the box, the
crate that I’m carrying, and I get down behind it,
and well, I sorta crouch so I can see over it, can
still see what’s happening, but I didn’t make it as far as I wanted. – So let’s say you got
halfway there instead. – Okay.
– Alright? – Can I move it?
– Yeah. – Can I make it over there? – But you did pick up a gun. – I did. – So, well played.
– So I’m right here. – The box is down with you. – Can I grab one of these boxes? Oh, they already moved down, okay. – Knocked down the bodies. – ‘Cause they’re dead. – Yeah, our bleeding bandits, so. – Bleeding bandits. – The rail driver’s here, yeah? – And as, by the way,
– What, am I here? – Yeah, so Wraith, as you’re leaving, you can actually hear one of the men who is alive, but barely thus, is actually, with every
ounce of his strength is yelling to you like,
“Don’t leave me here. “Don’t let them take me. “No.” – That’s gonna be a hard no from me, dog. (laughing) – Yeah. – Because of my sentry
getting knocked away, I’m gonna actually
spend another risk point to keep this encounter
moving, and normally I’d have to die roll. Actually, I still get to make a die roll. I forget. I always get to make a die roll. Nope, okay. (laughing) So I’ll spend some risk. – May I ask how many risks
you have pooled right now? – Yeah. – 19.
– It’s 19. – 19 risk, okay.
– It’s just right here. – 19 on the board. – Oh, I see. So I’m going to– – That’s a lot of risk. – Yeah, no kidding. – Basically bring these around. – Oh no.
– Bye, Bandaid. – Boy, Bandaid’s unglued? – Boy, she’s back.
– That’s fine. – Oh yeah, I’m in the rail driver. – Bandaid–
– I just want them to get you. – How dare you.
– Honest, I love you. You’re my favorite. – He’s our–
– I made it worse. – You don’t want the medic? – Yeah right. – No, trust me, I need them right now. – He can bleed.
– No, he’s gonna fix him. – I’m dripping. (laughing) – Just lick your own wounds? – Yeah, right. (groaning) – So you can start to hear them (groaning) as they just start coming
out through various places all around boxcars from different parts of the railway, and– – We’re not getting that stuff. – And, yeah, we’re at the
top of the next round, so. – We are not getting that stuff. – So, tense. – Intent – From my little crow’s
nest here, I can see Wraith having put down the box. – Yes. – And I’m calling out,
pick up the fucking box. (laughing) – But he’s near Stingray now. – Yeah, I can grab the box and run. – Both of you, pick up the fucking box. And I left the ramp down on purpose, – Right, right, right, right. – hoping you guys would get a box in here. So my intent is to stay where I am and wait until the infected get here. – How incredibly noble of you. Excellent. (laughing) – So one speed dice for that. – I’m fortified. – This guy, 12 years old,
already giving orders. (laughing) – Stingray. – And I’m right by Wraith? – Yeah, you’re actually
next to where the box is. You jumped down as he was setting it down. – And we’re about halfway? Hi, hun. (laughing)
– About halfway. – About halfway?
– Mmhmm. – Alright, yeah, I’m gonna
pick it up and get going. – Okay, Bandaid. – So I’ve made it into the rail driver. – Yeah, very good. – I want to call top bunk, I think. (laughing) – Aww, fair day.
– Fair enough, priorities. (laughing) – I mean, I wanna help
prepping it with Jenny. – Jenny, both of you
will basically contribute to the engineering check
that you’re both looking for. – Okay. – You can use his degree of success. – Wait, what is engineering? – It’s expert. With her help though– – I’ll morally assist. (laughing) – You’ve got this.
– Yay. – To be fair, it’s when he– – You just hand her wrenches. – when he’s assisting,
when you’re assisting, especially since this
is kind of basic action for helping carry wood
and things like that, I’ll allow you to roll, and I won’t count the degrees of failure against you, – Okay.
– Just the degrees of success. Unless you get a catastrophe. – Oh, okay.
– Then that’s different. – Dude.
– So that’s perception and willpower together.
– Yeah. – Yeah. – Oh, perception bonus and empathy. So, remember it would probably
be a pretty low number. – Yeah. – So, and then Jenny, you’re rolling, but you’re still on that three speed. I already rolled the labor from
your last roll as well, too. – Okay. – So, I just did it now. So that was fun. – What is that? – So you’re starting to
basically do the systems check. – Yeah. – That is necessary.
– Yeah. – And you’re starting to heat. – We’re throwing fuel on the fire box. – Throwing fuel in the fire box, yeah. So we’re getting it moving. And you are, and you’re
having Bandaid grab firewood, put it inside of there as
you’re starting to light it – Fan it.
– and get it heated up. – ‘Kay. – Can I do a lift pull role instead? – Yeah, if you’re just loading firewood. – I’m not really engineering anything. I’m just doing whatever she tells me. – Yeah.
– Cool. Then actually, that’s a better thank you for providing a great alternative. – Hey. – Yay.
– Teamwork. – Bandaid’s always thinking. – Speaking of which, this
is probably a great time for me to introduce a new
rule that will help you if you wanna get into it. – Okay, fine.
(laughing) We explained a little
bit of some of the basics in the last episode, but this episode, I’m introducing competence points, and everybody starts with
two competence points – Okay.
– In order for the beginning of this session, and it’s essentially, if you feel you are
competent in this thing, you may spend the competence points to basically just get a
free degree of success. – Okay. – Or negate a degree of failure, alright? You’re essentially saying,
hey, I’m sticking to the plan. I’m very competent in what I’m doing. You’re not necessarily
taking any risky action, so something like this could be a good use of a competence point,
because like you said, you’re not engineering anything. You’re just doing what
she tells you to, so. Great. – Do you have to declare that before you, no, I’d have to be
after to negate failure. – Yeah, you can spend the competence point after you roll if you wish.
– Okay. – Alright? – And when do we get those points back? – At the beginning of every session. – Oh, okay.
– Oh. – And if you don’t use them
by the end of the session, I will instead give you survival
points for not using them. – Okay.
– Yay, rollover minutes. – Yep, rollover.
(laughing) So if you do not use competence points, they don’t just go away. They turn into survival points
by the end of the session. – Cool. – Cool, alright. – And so we’re on one speed? – Yeah, am I–
– Might as well, yeah. Let’s get you both on
three, because it’s still a complicated action, what you’re doing. – Okay.
– Oh, we’re gonna get a three? – Three speed dice.
– Speed dice, and then skill as well, or?
– Yep, your skill especially. Great, has everyone got
their speed and their dice? – Yeah. – Let’s roll it. (dice rolling) (groaning) – I got a one, I got a one. (hands clapping) – I got a four. – You gotta start that train. (squealing) – Fire it up.
– What? – You’re actually good at engineering. – I’m so proud of you. (laughing) – Alright.
– Holy crap. Did you roll under your engineering? – I did.
– Oh my god. – Amazing.
– I’m an engineer now. (laughing) – Alright, let’s start the speed. Asher, what’s your speed? – I got a three. – Three, alright.
– Wait. Oh, what did we get? – I got a one or a 10. – We are a five. – You’re a five. – It could be a lot worse. – Yeah. – Alright, and then how
about the engineering duo? – We take our time. – Speed? – 10.
– Bandaid plus Jenny. Pretty solid. So Asher, you sit in your warlord’s box yelling orders, okay? – That’s me.
– That’s so you. – Yeah. – As Wraith and Stingray, how did you do? – Not well. (laughing) That is, let’s see–
– How many? (laughing) – What was it, lift pull? – Lift pull, yeah. ♪ Four degrees of failure. ♪ So can I use my competency
points to put those away? – Yeah, you can, absolutely. – But that’s my check. He didn’t. – I have a 49 lift
pull, and I rolled a 50, so it’s zero failure, right? – [All] Zero failure. – So you just have to resolve hers, then. So–
– But can I– – This is a tough box. – Use my competency points to– – You can burn two competence points to just negate the
failure on two of those. – Yeah, because four is just way too much. Something horrible is about to happen. – Right. – So let’s get rid of those. – So you’re fairly
competent in carrying boxes. – Yes.
– Congratulations. – Yes, thank you.
– I think this is one of those things like
when you move a couch– – No, no, no, but I’ll
tell you what happened, no, no, no, no, no
– And you have to decide who walks backwards
and who walks forwards. – Yeah, yeah, no. I jumped down with my rifle. We had a weird dancey,
dancey, dancey moment. He put it down. We just fumbled and we
did an I Love Lucy mess. We did a Lucille Ball mess.
– Yes. – So I finally end up grabbing the box, but I’m way slow, and by
the time I get it up– – It’s also way heavier than
both of you really imagined, even with both of you
kinda getting into it, so we’re gonna say with
those, and you didn’t make it to the rail driver. – Oh, hell no.
– I told you it’s heavy. That’s why I put it down.
– That’s quite alright (laughing) and the 98-pounder is coming to help you. (laughing) – You wanted to help. – I did wanna help. I’m right here. (yelling) – So you make it about
another quarter of the way to the rail driver, putting
you to the last quarter right before you’re about to load the box. – Thanks, dude.
– Thank you. – Thanks for fixing us from on high. – You’re welcome.
– At this point, Jenny and Bandaid, how well
did you do as far as rolls go? – I’m trading.
– Go for it. – Can I?
– Very well. – Yes, same. – Well, then grab your degrees of success and degrees of failure. – Three degrees.
– Three. – I’m going to move our infected. – Thank you.
– That means infected meetings are courtesy of Cool Mini
or Not from Zombicide. – Oh, there’s four infected on there. – Yeah.
– Oh my god. – Yeah, no, they’re everywhere. – I can’t see much from the box. – What’s in the box? – They are so fast.
– Oh, they are very fast. Oh my goodness, that’s too much. – Okay.
– Holy cow. – You watch as you can hear
the boilers start to churn, and you can start to feel the heat as the steam is starting
to rise from the main spout in the front of this converted armor car. Through the small wisping
parts of the smoke, you can actually see, is
one of the creatures just (creature growling) leaps up and–
– Eww. – You can hear metal
screech (metal screeching) as it rakes its claws across
the bottom of the boxcar, and you can see it, just for a moment, as it lands right onto the top. You maybe had a shot for a
brief glimpse of a moment, but just as quickly,
it’s gone as it finishes its arc down onto the
bottom of the boxcar. We can begin this intent round again. – Okay.
– Do you guys have three and then three respectively?
– Yeah. – Alright, I’m gonna roll. How would you like to spend these? Would you wanna contribute it all towards getting the rail driver up and running? – Yeah. – Just clarifying.
– I appreciate that. I appreciate it.
– Okay. – So that is–
– You have one job. – Yes, correct. (laughing) – Jenny, it’s almost
like if you were trained for this explicitly. – Yes. – So, in the same way that you (laughing) it’s almost like a second home to you as you start twisting all of the knobs, throwing the fire in, and
that thing just starts burning as if someone tossed kerosene on it, which maybe you did in
order to get that thing up and moving, but no matter what, you can actually start to
feel the engine start to pull against its own bakes a little bit as the momentum is starting to build up and the steam is starting to gain purchase to where the point of, at some point, you feel like you could probably get a little bit of movement if you started to adjust the speed on the rail driver. – I do. – Okay, so are you going
slow, or are you going full? – We’re gonna go slow. I wanna roll out slow,
and you guys just get in. – Alright. – Just get in. – So she pulls the main speed lever in order to break it into a slow crawl, and you guys start to feel, Asher, you start to feel as this thing
(mimicking train chugging) as it starts to feel as the
large connecting pinions start to move the wheels as it begins making a slow crawl along the rails. – You guys are slow close with the box. You’re slow close with the box. (laughing) – Alright, yeah, intent. Finishing this box situation? – Alright.
– Yeah. – Can we have a quick word
before we declare intent? – Yeah, pops.
– Yeah. – Yeah, yeah, yeah, bring it, and boxes. – I can be like, do you
want to carry a knife fight or we both carry, or we both fight? – Woof, how strong are– – I look and see you don’t
have any melee weapons, like maybe not both fight,
maybe not both fight. – I do, I have my (speaking
in foreign language). – I look impressed. (laughing) – Let’s just get on this thing. – Alright. (grunting) – Alright, so you’re both
booking it for the rail driver. – Oh, you don’t wanna
try to carry this box? – Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, no, with the box. – I think we’re gonna give it another shot at carrying the box. – Dude.
– You know what to do. – I’m up here just freaking out. – Dude, no, no, no, we’re
just running with the box. – Running with the box. You two can do something else if you want, but the rail driver’s up
and moving at this point. – Cool, I’m gonna move
back towards the ramp. I’m gonna take up my
pistol, and I’m gonna aim it for backup, ’cause I see them coming. – I see.
– If anything comes close to them, I’m gonna try to– – Do you wanna hold with the trigger? – Huh? – Do you wanna hold with
the trigger with composure? – Sure, yeah. – Alright, we’ll compose you now. – How many (drowned out by speaker) – Your reaction.
– Composure is 53. (dice rolling) Ooh. – So you pull–
– Oh, to four degrees? – Okay, so you pull your pistol out to kind of look at it, but
you are finding yourself, you’re just kind of watching them, and you’re not watching around you. – Sure, sure, sure.
– At all. – I’m just like, come on,
come on, come on, come on. – Yeah, you’re more excited
in the outcome of this than you are looking
for potential targets. – ‘Cause technically, I don’t
see the infected anyway, so I don’t know, or the infected. – Where they are on the box? – You hear ’em.
– Yeah. – So because I broke my
composure, I don’t roll, right? – No, it basically just means
you don’t get the benefit of being able to hold on the next round. – Oh, okay. – Since it wasn’t an absolute catastrophe, I’m not necessarily penalizing you for it. – It was very close. – Shh. – But in this case, essentially, your actions lost for this round. – Okay.
– Alright? But you had your gun out, so great. – (laughing) Good. – So, roll, roll, but
then Jenny, how about you? – I am just slowly opening that throttle. We’re just increasing our speed. – Got it.
– I’m giving you guys enough time to hop on,
but as soon as you’re on. (mimicking engine roaring) – Yeah, gone.
– Got it. Alright, great. Then let’s go. (dice rolling) – Speed’s what’s gonna be
the most important here. – Oh my god, yes.
– I roll speed. – Great, well then let’s resolve this relatively quick round. – Asher, how’d you do. – Four degrees up.
– Four degrees up. ♪ Hoo ♪
– Thank God. – Alright, so at this point,
yeah, you’re tall enough that you can definitely
get a shot off on it, so. – That’s what I was
thinking, right in there. – Just barely. – Cool, so yeah, I wanna put a lotta focus down into that guy. – Okay.
– Which one? The red shirt or the orange shirt? – Orange shirt is my target originally. – Orange jacket, cool. – So right now, I’m gonna burn two to roll two more damage die. – Damnit. – That’s five, that’s six so far. (rolling dice) (cheering) – You’re both exploding? – [Both] No, just one. – Just one, alright. – So that’s two, so that
was what, six, seven, eight. – 13.
– 13, yeah 13. (rolling dice) – 16.
– 16 damage total to orange. – 16?
– To orange, yeah. – Alright, so you pop
a couple rounds into it (loading rounds in gun) and you watch as it stumbles and drops. You dropped it. You didn’t kill it, but you watch as it (monster growling) kind of stumbles down and
picks itself up a little bit enough to just give you the
dirtiest look on the planet before you watch as the rail
driver continues to push off. It is not dead, but it is
not operable at this moment. – Oh, I made the infected mad. – You hurt his feelings. (laughing) – Is it down off the boxcar? – Did it fall off the– – It did fall off the boxcar. – He shot, and it just kinda
scrambled forward into the car, so you definitely, you
definitely did something to it. (laughing) Now–
– That’s good. – So you’ve made it,
since it’s a slow crawl, you probably cleared
about five, maybe 10 feet at this stage, and these guys are. (monsters growling) – Did that guy leap? – Yeah, they’re leaping, so this one’ll come around this way. – Easy how nature do that. – And this one will come around this way. – Me too. (laughing) – And you will basically watch as. So Bandaid, as you’re
watching both Stingray and Wraith kind of picking up the box, you watch as two of them
just (monsters growling) around the corner. Or I should probably do
it from your perspective. They just (monsters
growling) around the corner of the boxcar, and you can see them as they almost look like
they’re in a full sprint as you can see some of the
ragged clothes, essentially– – Towards them or towards us? – Straight towards these two. As you can see, some of
their rag cloth is whipping right behind them in a full breeze, as you can see their
cloudy, milk-white eyes, and some of their long,
especially on the female, there are this long, ragged, dirty hair. There’s this (monster
screeching) as they just start running straight towards
Wraith and Stingray, so. Wraith and Stingray, how’d you do? (rolling dice) – Two degrees of failure.
– Oh no. – I have, let’s see. I think it’s one degree of success here. – Okay.
– Let me check. – Yeah, alright. So how would you like to
resolve your degree of success? And how would you like to resolve your degrees of failure, Stingray? – Are you out of competence? – I used them on the last one. – You’re fighty, right? And he’s lifty? – You know what, I’m gonna- – We’re both lifting, but I’ve got my gun. – How about I spend one
point of my own competence, and then with my successes,
it’ll cancel out yours, and it will basically just say, because I’m probably
taller than you, right? – Word. – That’s probably been another reason we’ve had this problem
carrying this box, right? – You just grab it on your own. – So I just kind of lean into it. – Right.
– And she’s still attached. (laughing) – Well no.
– Just dangling off. – Her arms drop.
– Right. – So as this thing
– I’ll take more of the load. – is starting to move, you’re
basically cursing Jenny under your breath because
this thing is getting farther away as you are running
towards it as you pick up this box, and just with
a howl of adrenaline, and just partial rage,
you’re just (grunting), just beg this box and then
heft it straight into the back of the rail driver, and you hear (box hitting the rail driver) into the back, almost knocking
over Bandaid in the process (laughing) as now both you and Stingray
basically just need to get on the boat as they say. – Okay.
– We’re not sightseeing here. We’re done. – So this next roll determines that? – Essentially, I’m just gonna
ask for an endurance check for both you and Stingray
as you guys are going both full bore in order to
make it in there, alright? (rolling dice) – Endurance is 40.
– Yeah. – You got this. No, yeah, you’re good. (laughing) – So as Stingray and Wraith
start barreling down the side, – (cheering) Oh yes! – of the rail line, they continue to run– – Do we need to reroll that one? – No, ’cause that’s a zero. You’re good.
– You did it. – Okay, alright, and you run. How well did you run, you two? – We ran great.
– Yay. (laughing) – You make a good team.
– We did good running. – I run with my arms out like this. (laughing) – Oh my god. – Into the rail driver.
– Alright. – Just right up the ramp like this. – You got a one degree. One degree of success.
– One degree of success. – And– – I got four degrees of success. – Alright, they’re running just as fast if not faster than the
rail driver at this stage, but that thing’s gaining speed. We have a close call, and I
wanna hear how it happened. – Okay, so after I’ve hucked the box, I actually end up running faster than you and I get on first. – Clearly. – So I run up the ramp with my ninja run, and then I skid to a
stop and I turn around and you’re almost on the ramp, too. – I’m almost on the ramp. – And I go, see, you’re
not the best at everything. – I never said I was. Give me a fucking hand. (laughing) – Yes.
– And you pull her up as she lines up and then–
– I shut the door. – Bandaid pulls the
lever up as you watch it (door slamming shut) as the rail driver is
completely locked and secured, and you can hear the (monster
landing on rail driver) of a couple of the creatures just jumping onto the side
– And bouncing off – of the rail driver and then bouncing off and skittling along the side. – It’s a new paint job.
– As this thing just continues to gain
more and more speed. (mimicking train chugging faster) Now, we cleared the St.
Louis Train Station. (sighing) You’re basically taking this
thing at what speed, Jenny? How far is this thing coming up? – Look.
– So. – Man, how fast can we go? – So, a little information
about the rail driver. – Yes please. – It has a max speed of 55 miles per hour, – Oh, okay. – But it requires coal
to get to that level. – Okay, okay. – That’s max on wood is about 35. – Okay, so we’re going about 35. – Yes, 35 is about the
max that you can get onto this thing without
burning any additional coal. – Gotcha.
– But that’s gonna get the thing up to a pretty reasonable speed on rails at this stage. So, Jenny, as you’re barreling
this rail driver along at 35 miles an hour, you
are clearly out-pacing the infected who are running
behind you at this stage, and your brain reminds you
that, yes, while this thing absolutely has a top
speed of 35 miles an hour when running on wood, it does
not mean it is a safe speed, so you’re going pretty fast in this thing, and you can already start to feel the improvised armored car
starting to rattle a little bit. – Okay. I slow down. (laughing) And scene. (laughing) – To any particular speed? – Let’s take it to 28. – Okay.
– Yeah. – So 28, alright. That’s a very specific number.
– Also divisible by seven. I appreciate the math. (laughing) – Wow. Fair enough. – She’s a train expert, not you. Let her decide what speed to reduce it to. – And Asher, I believe you were recalling to me earlier that you
wanted to come down. – Yes, I wanna have a moment. – Well, take it away. – So as we exit the station,
I come down from the little crow’s nest here. – As you come down, immediately sit down. – I push you aside physically. I get in Jenny’s face and
say, what the fuck was that? This is supposed to be a crack team. We almost got steamrolled in there as I pull of my gloves
which sop to the floor. – Blood pools out from them. – Oh, God. Alright, I start taking out bandages. – Alright, we had no idea
how many infected there were, and they kept coming, okay? – Not to mention, asshole, who was the one who let on that we were
there when he walked around and cleared his fucking throat? – Thank you, Ray, thank you. – Did they teach you that in stealth 101? Don’t get on her. – You’ve got me there. – I disinfect your wounds
without any ceremony. (laughing) – Ah, fuck. – You were also the
first to start shooting. – Yeah, maybe don’t do that. – How do you think they heard us? How do you think these
infected were attracted? – What do you think was our alternative? – Maybe talk to them? We’re all smugglers here. It could have been reasoned with. – We spoke to them. – We’re all smugglers, okay fine. – You occupy them with talking. – We spoke to them. – I sneak up and shoot them
with my arrow which is quiet. – You wanna kill them all with your bow? Is that how you had that planned out? – You gotta problem with this team, you’re welcome to do this all by yourself. This is who you got. – You want the money. Come on. – I can get money plenty
of ways, pretty boy. – I overheard your
conversation back in town. You’re about the money too, friend. – I’m about a lot more than money. This whole mission is about
a lot more than money. – Right now you’re about bleeding. – I’m not listening to this. I’m going up to the crow’s nest. – You don’t know what
you’re doing out here. We do, alright? So sit down, get bandaged up, and let’s just drive this thing, okay? – Do you wanna do a
inventory of what is still in the rail driver and what isn’t? – Lemme fix you up first. – I mean, someone else can. – I got, I rolled an
80, so, but I still got, it’s zero failure, zero success, so can I take the 10 and do it again? – So what’s probably
gonna happen at this stage is it’s just going to take time. – Sure.
– At this point, you’re– – That’s fine. I’m probably not putting
effort into healing quickly anyway, ’cause you’re an asshole. – Or maybe it’s you being around too much on chewing people out. – Do you wanna describe to
me how you get him going? – Yeah, so initially,
I was just haphazardly disinfecting the wounds
and kind of wrapping them and letting it kind of
bleed through the bandages, and as time has passed, I’d
let it kinda clot a bit, and then reapply the bandages, and that’s all that it needed, but you didn’t have to be
a jerk about everything. – No. (clearing throat) How long has it been now, that
we’ve been working on this? – It’s been about 45 minutes or so. – Okay, you’re right. We’re all here. I’m sorry. That was a very tense situation for me. (laughing) Obviously, you’re hilarious. Obviously, this is my
first time in the Frontier. – What? – I’m trying here, man, okay? – Sorry, sorry, sorry. – I respect the experience you all have, and obviously you were hired for a reason. I want to make sure that we
do keep our coordination tight going forward, and I
recognize my part in this, so I’m sorry. Let’s keep the mission
going, and hopefully not have anymore bumps in the road. – And as, speaking of bumps
in the road, it’s happened. (groaning and laughing) Jenny, as you begin to
consistently keep this thing at a constant 28 miles an hour, – Maybe 25, maybe 25. – (laughing) 25, as you keep this thing at an average 25 miles an hour, you start to see, without
a lot of difficulty ahead, at least about 1/2 a
mile, maybe a mile down, you can actually see, what’s
the best way to describe this, in the rural parts of St. Louis, there are a couple of
areas in which it demanded a bridge go over the rail line versus make a traditional crossroad. Probably more to keep congestion down. At this point, though,
you’re far enough away from the major city limits of St. Louis where a huge part of nature has started to come in and take over. In fact, a large portion
of this 45-minute drive, while Asher was getting patched up, slowly, the rubble and gray and brown that is part of the kill zone of St. Louis is starting to slowly transition into a large, green,
fertile overgrown area. – While this is going on,
can I borrow your gloves? – Sure, why?
– Cool. Can I spend some survival points to see if we have any glass flasks in supplies? – You can cash that out if you want. In fact, this is probably
a great opportunity to kinda tell you what you have. – They’ve already been off. They’re pooling on the floor. (laughing) – I put them back on after the bandaging. – Don’t do that. (laughing) – I did the motion. – You did not do that.
– Bad patient. I did not let you do that. – Bad patient.
– I shook ’em out. – Gross! – I’ll say I can get about three flasks – Great. – with stoppers.
– Yeah. – So, I wanna take the gloves
and kinda ring them out into the flasks. – Oh, I see what you’re going for. – Oh.
– And dilute it with some of the water from
my own personal canteen. – Good, good.
– Okay. – And stopper them.
– Oh, great. – Why?
– Well played. Stinky sticks.
– It’s still the stink bombs. – Yep.
– Oh, okay. – Yep, yep, yep. – I don’t have to explain anything to you. – Here’s your stinky stick. – Thank you.
– Very single-minded. – Great, alright, well
that’s been pulled out, and getting back to the landscape at hand, you can see these large, overgrown ferns as well as these young
saplings who are beginning to burst out from various
parts of residential area. – What biome would you call this? – We’re definitely still
in the plains lands. – Alright.
– It’s still flat. (laughing) It’s still urban ’cause you’re passing by
old residential houses, and you can see these burnt-out or overgrown or moss-ridden buildings. A lot of them look like they’ve had literally moss painted on them, so there’s hardly any
wood or old finish left, and if not, some of them are so crumpled and dry that you can see that
maybe part of a brush fire or something else, they’ve
just been burnt down years and years ago, so– – Wraith is in the crow’s nest with you, and you can see that he
looks much more relaxed, and he’s chewing on a
piece of rabbit jerky and is sort of (inhaling) – Oh, good.
– inhaling the fresh nature. – Alright.
– Oh, I almost forgot. I found this on one of our friends. – Oh.
– I like that. – Oh, the gun, the pistol, yeah. – And I pull out this pistol. – Excellent.
– Ah, fair enough. – For inventory-wise,
how are we doing on fuel? Did they take anything? – Yeah, curious about fuel, water– – No wood was taken. – Okay.
– Food and water. Some was taken, absolutely.
– Okay. – So you originally had
enough to take care of you for three weeks, all three
of you, for three weeks. Now there’s a little less than that. – I recovered the box.
– Yes. – You need one? – We didn’t end up losing a lot. – You lost only a little, you lost a little less than 1/3. – Of mostly food and water. – Of just supplies inside
of the rail driver. – Okay. – All of your more elite
items that you requested like the mountain bikes, the ham radio, and the satellite phone batteries, those are still in there. You can still pay to get them out. – Sure. – I remember that.
– We’re ready. – Yeah.
– I was proud of that one. – Prepared.
– It’s amazing. – Right.
– That was her idea. We’re totally doing BMX
bandits inside there. – Bam. (laughing) – But at this point, I will
tell you that you definitely, you’ve definitely gone
through the St. Louis station, and the only main point of interest you can actually see from the rail line is there is the Washington
University Tyson Research area, which is very much part of
taken over by the woodlands and that area, and you can
actually see a theme park, an old, rusted theme park
– Aww, Six Flags. – on the right side of the road. (laughing) And it’s amazing that
they’re still standing after decades, but you can actually see a large portion of them
have that old man’s beard that’s coming down of the moss, and so a lot of the old
parts of the roller coasters sometimes look like large frowning faces with long beards dangling down from it, so it’s the one thing that
does break the skyline up amongst a vast swath of flat, with high, almost waist-high grass being
punctuated by the occasional young sapling, which, the
ones that are close enough to the rail driver are just
summariously getting ripped out of their roots or branches snapped even at the modest 25 miles
an hour that you’re traveling. – I look at Asher as we’re
going by the amusement park, and I say, don’t get excited kids. We’re not stopping. (laughing) – I’ll start playing
with my lock a little bit more fidgety as we pass it. – The tunnel in which
the trains of the old age may have gone through,
you can actually now see a large plywood sheet laid
up along the entire front of the tunnel, and you can
see that it’s been made up of large pieces of plywood, reinforced by a couple of two by
fours, and it just seems to be a wooden wall that’s been tacked on to the old, stone archway
that is in the middle of your rail line. – That’s not an obstacle. Someone or something is living in there. – [Both] Yeah. – May I suggest we stop ahead, well ahead. – Absolutely. – Because if we can take that down, we’ll need to get going
through there at speed. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – And also, we should
probably do a spot listen just to see if we can hear
anything that’s going on there. – Well, we could pop
out and get closer to it and have a listen, right? – Right, so as you stop the rail driver, how far away from the structure
would you like to do so? – I try and stop as safely
and as quickly as possible. – As soon as we see it.
– Yeah, yeah. – Alright. So as you start to slow the engine down, it coasts pretty close. Yeah, giving yourself a
(train chugging to stop) as you guys stop, I’m gonna guess about 250, maybe 300 feet. – Okay, that’s not bad at all.
– Okay. – Before, I mean, you had
a pretty straight shot as far as looking at it
goes, and as soon as you see the bridge and into it,
it only takes about 50 or 60 or so feet to
slow down at that speed. – Do we all wanna go have a look at this? – Yeah.
– I’m going for sure. – Alright, so who’s
staying in the rail driver and who’s going? – I’ll–
– I wanna go and be sneaky. – You be sneaky.
– I’m just gonna walk over. – I’ll be in the crow’s nest.
– Okay. – Keeping an eye out.
– Great. – Keep an eye on this guy.
– Do it. – Thanks, man.
– Alright, the four of you and Stingray are staying in the tower. – I’m bringing, we have axes and stuff for clearing brush. – Alright, well, that’s
another 15 survival points to pull from the rail driver. Would you like to get the ax? – Yes, I would. – Go grab it. – It’s the big one, right? – It’s a big one. (laughing) – Amazon ax. – Oh my goodness.
– Great. – Awesome.
– Now that’s an ax. – So that’ll help here.
– My ax. – And here’s the card for it.
– Excellent. – So, Bandaid, on your way back, you’re welcome to take that. (whistling) So as Wraith and Bandaid approach with a– – I’m up there, too.
– With Asher. – And Asher, but Wraith
and Bandaid are carrying crowbars and axes along the way, as you’re walking forward,
you can start to see this plywood wall has a little bit of splash and color on it. You can start to see that
they’ve maybe actually done a little bit to try to make it blend with the countryside and matching parts of the arch stone way which is also covered in vinery and greenery as well, and as you start walking
closer and closer to it, you hear the large ka-kow of a rifle shot. Ping, as dust and rocks kind
of explode right next to you. – I just hit the deck.
– Yes. – Yes.
– All of you hit the deck. – And as soon as I hear that,
I’m unlocked and loaded. – Well how close are we? – So you’re looking through it. – And watching, trying to see
what’s happening in my scope. – You can see a couple of
slits, but here’s the thing. The scoped rifle you have,
a lot of the hunting rifle that you have actually
doesn’t have a full-blown sniper rifle scope on it,
so you’re mostly using the naked eye with a little
bit of a magnification in order to go through there. You can see the black slits,
and you can actually see a small rifle barrel pointing out through, but that’s about as much as you can see. – So, right now, how
close are we to the actual wooden wall itself? – So you stopped at about 300
feet, if I said correctly. You’d walk about 50 to
maybe another 100 feet before that went down, so
let’s call it 200 feet. – Oh, Jesus. – From the opening.
– Okay. – That’s a long rifle. – Yeah.
– And we have some tree cover? Are there plants? – No, you’re literally right
in the middle of the rails. – No, what I mean is, – You’re walking down the track. – We have the rails. To either side, do we have trees? What’s the topography? – Oh, it’s mostly waist-high,
up to waist-high amount of grass and shrubbery with
a couple of young saplings, but most of it’s just grass-cover. – Okay, yeah, I’m just gonna
take a dive in long grass. – But waist-high, right? – Yeah. – It’s pretty. Parts of it are really tall, so. – Yeah, I’m just driving
straight into that. – Me too.
– Alright. (mimicking gun loading) – Let’s dive.
– Alright. – I’m not diving. I’m just going down.
– On the rails? – No, in the grass.
– Oh, okay, cool. – Yeah.
– Jenny? – Yeah, diving.
– Dive, okay. – In the grass.
– Oh, hey, Jenny. (laughing) – Hey, you’re here also. – So as all four of you
dive into the grass, you can hear amongst the silence, because at that point
after the crack went off, you just saw birds
(mimicking birds flying) as they kind of came out
from all different parts of the high grass, and silence
kind of permeates after that single rifle shot went off. – Did we all dive into the same grass? – I think so. – Or are we on either side, maybe? – Do we have to, do you
wanna roll for that? – We were like, stand by
me walking on the rails. – To see how frantic we were? – How coordinated were
we in diving in our own– – Oh, and actually, this
point, let’s just make a single will save for all of you. Yeah, all of you make a will check. Check against your will. This is essentially–
– For everyone? – Yikes.
– For everyone. Just to see how coercive you were on this. – Oh, damn, 61. – Yeah, I had–
– We don’t have to worry about degrees of success.
– Oh, okay. – This is just a success
or failure kinda situation. – Failure. – So you all found different places – Sure.
– Great, we’re scattering. – to scatter into. You scatter like roaches. (laughing) – And I’m too far away
to really communicate with you all, but I can shoot. – Yeah, you can see the
barrel pointing out, but you, at this point, after the birds, (mimicking birds flying) it’s just silence at this moment. – Now was it anybody? I, at one point, I mean I didn’t have any degrees of failure, right? I was just at zero. – Yeah, just at zero. – It’s still–
– We’re good? – Okay.
– It’s still fine. Still cleared. Nothing bad happened.
– Alright. – You’re all, it’s clear where you. I will say it is very clear
where you disturbed the grass, so even though you have
cover, it’s not like you disappeared into the brush. – Yeah.
– It’s very clear where you flattened the grass now. – Real quick, too, I wanna assess. From what I remember
where the shot landed, ’cause it seemed like a
warning shot and not like I tried to kill you but I missed shot. – Do you wanna call that out? – I sure do.
– Yeah. What do you wanna say? – There is something
like, I guess spot listen? – Are you just wanting to
yell at him, or do you wanna– – No, no, no, I wanna determine
from where the shot was. – Determine–
– Oh, I see. (rolling dice) Bandaid.
– Yeah. – It’s abundantly clear that
with the shot that far away and that wide and how close
he was but still missed you, that was clearly a warning shot. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – Now, no one’s said anything yet, but– – So I’d like to begin inching to where I believe Wraith hand landed. – Okay.
– Yeah. – And work my way over to him. – Alright, so you kind of army crawl, and you can watch as the grass. (laughing) – Yep. – Swishes around as you
get close to Wraith. – Can I roll for stealth? (laughing) – And can I have my, I just want my gun trained on that
wall the whole time. – Absolutely, you tell
me when you wanna shoot if you wanna shoot ever. – May I roll for sneaky
to disturb less grass? Be less obvious? – I think at this point, yes you can, so by all means, go for it. I’ll always allow you.
– What can I lose? – Well.
– Are these yours? – Those are mine, yeah. – I want lots of room. – Yeah, enjoy. – Aww, sneaky sneaky.
– Yeah. – Yeah, wow, actually.
– Super sneaky. – I got three degrees of success. – Okay, yeah, so how would
you like to tell your story? – Okay, so I’m gonna say I did not disturb the grass. I’m inching along, and I find
ways to weave between stalks to where the grass is not too dense that you’re going to make a
mess of it wherever you go. I carve a path through it without making too much disturbance. I track down Wraith,
and I meet up with him, and should I spend one more to say that I found him successfully? – Yep.
– Okay, right. One more.
– Okay. – We all have used those.
– You can hold onto it. (laughing) – We found each other now.
– Yeah. – Aww.
– What’s up, buddy? – I know.
– Oh, hi, Asher. (laughing) – Yeah. – We’re just laying in the grass. – I’m just sitting there. I’m just kinda sitting there on by back just kinda waiting. – And Asher comes upon
you laying in the grass with your arms folded. – I’m looking relaxed.
– Yeah. – Okay, so, together, I’m
asking you now, quietly, and I’m not gonna cough. What did you see? All I know is that it’s
completely boarded up from top to bottom. It’s just wood. Did you see any other
way inside besides that? – No, friend. I did not. – And that is all we spotted, right? It’s just a bridge and– – Yeah, so about 200 feed away, the fine details of the patched up tunnel are still pretty vague at this point. – Okay, I think we should
try and just regroup at the very least. We don’t have to storm the palace, but we should find our
other teammates here. – Can I do a listen check for no reason. (laughing) – Okay, as long as you’re
specified it’s for no reason. – Yeah, yeah. – I also have very high
survival, so can I imitate a specific bird call that
these two would recognize? – We may. We’ve done missions together. – Yeah, we’ve all worked together. – Oh my gosh, okay, I’ll
allow you to do that if you spend one gestalt point in order to make a gestalt skill out of it. – Gestalt is–
– Done. – The thing that you guys have in order to bring practical
experience, so your gestalt is the practical experience
that you bring into the world, so I’ll actually really
think that’s awesome, so– – There you go. – We’re gonna make a
gestalt skill out of it. You now have a bird call
between your friends. – The call of the raven. (laughing) – And the cool thing
is, if I can hear that from the crow’s nest, I know they’re fine. – Right.
– Or at least he’s fine. – Mostly fine.
– Yeah, yeah. – At least he’s fine. – Yeah.
– So you probably can. It’s a pretty distinct sound, so. – It’s not a super uncommon bird, but you guys have heard
me do it a specific way. – Yeah, yeah, you’re not that good at it that I think you’re a bird.
– Hey, that’s the idea is like, we all know it. – Yeah, it’s an agreed-upon signal. – Yeah.
– Can I run downstairs and grab binoculars to get a better sense of what’s going on? – Oh, absolutely, yes. – Aw, I shoulda given you mine. – Would you like to basically
spend 10 survival points outta here to get binoculars? – Yeah.
– Okay, we’re gonna spend 10. So now you’ve got binocs. – So I got that and my scope. – So Wraith, – Why do you guys have cigarettes? – I don’t know.
– Everybody knows you’re there, no problems, so– – Well, we’re hoping for a response so we can pinpoint where they are. – My response is to sneak over
to where the call came from. – Okay, great. – So, what is that? – Is it stealth?
– Stealth. – Yeah, this is still stealth if you wanna undisturb the grass. If you just wanna go for
it, you can go for it. (laughing) – I’ll try at least to be sneaky. – Yeah, I’d rather you not give us away. (groaning) – Nice try.
– You have to get up and run across the rails. (groaning) – Oh, honey.
– Oh, yeah, cause they went to the other side. – Right, how many degrees
of failure was it? – Three.
– Three? – Mmhmm.
– Okay, so as you’re running, you hear a loud ka-kow again (screaming) as you see
– And you’re like, oh my fucking god.
– more in front of you, it’s then anything. You just watch as more dirt spray, and you actually hear at this point, someone yelling from very, very far off. It’s like, go home. – I’m just gonna stand
there and raise my hands. – In the middle?
– Yeah. – In the middle of the railway? – Well, yeah.
– Okay. I’m just gonna stop as
soon as the shot hit. – Alright, and you’re there hands up. – Yeah. – So you guys all hear this as well, too. – I’d like to call out to this guy. – Okay. – Alright, so from my position,
because at this distance, sound will not totally give me
away in terms of where I am, but I’d like to yell
out, we’re just trying to get through the rail. We don’t care about your stuff. – The rail is in the middle of our stuff. – Could you move it? (laughing) – What are you doing out here? And you can still,
through your binoculars, – Right.
– Ray, you can clearly see that this man has not poked his head out. – Right, right, it’s just the rifle. – You can clearly still
see the rifle barrel is through the peep hole,
and that’s it at this stage. (sighing) We have no reason to move. This is our home. – We’re willing to trade. – I’d like to do a
command diplomacy check. – Sounds like you’re bartering,
you’re wanting to command. – Yeah. – So, it’s both at the same time. So who’s, or are you both
gonna yell out something, we’re willing to trade, and
then what do you wanna say? – I’d like to make the case that we are, you want me just to tell ’em? – Yeah.
– Okay. – (clearing throat) We’re establishing a new supply line to Livingstone. It’s very important that we get through. Please. We don’t care about your stuff. We don’t wanna hurt you. Just let us go, let us go through. We will leave you guys alone. (dice rolling) – So Asher, you drop off
– I’m talking to myself. I can’t see, so– – your hand gun with Wraith
as you walk over to the front, and you can actually
see as you get closer. – Hands are up. – Hands are up, and you
watch as there’s actually, ’cause this thing is
several stories tall, right? So about eight feetish up or so, you can actually watch as a wooden plank, one of the ones that’s
part of the boarded up, just kinda comes down on chains, in kind of a perch, and
you watch as a spry looking Asian man sticks himself
up and kind of crawls up to the one on the porch
and goes, what’s your name? – Asher Emerson Stern the third. (laughing) – Alright, Asher Emerson Stern the third. That’s a fucking yankee. (sighing) They’re not coming through the home. Do you see that we’ve
built a little place here? – I do. It’s quite nice. I’d like to make you guys an offer. – You wanna talk to the boss, huh? – Yeah, I’d like to. – Alright, hey, why don’t
you have your friends come over here, ’cause
I really don’t think Jimmy wants to put any
holes in anybody today. – That would be nice.
– That’s fair. Could they wait in the
rail driver instead? – Nah.
– No. Why don’t you have ’em all come inside? I think we’ll all be much, much happier if we can see all of you, – Okay, fine. – and there is five of you, right? – We okay with that? – Yeah.
– Okay. (laughing) – You shut your mouth, Asher. (laughing) We’re all coming. – Yeah, shut your mouth, Asher. I like him. – I’ve got viability up here. Yeah, it sounds great. – Alright, great. So as the four of you kind of come out from various parts of the bushes, – I’ve just spent the whole time. – and walking down the rail line, you see is this guy kind of hops down onto the side of the
ledges in a single motion and drops down as the ply board goes boom. (laughing) As he drops down the six
or so feet to the bottom to where you’re at, and are like, alright. (brushing hands together) And you watch as he checks
his keys a little bit, rustles and grabs a large simple padlock key and he
goes over and starts unlocking various parts of the
doors from the outside. – With the same key? – No, with different keys. It’s not on a ring.
– On a ring? – So he starts taking a
bunch of individual keys and starts unlocking
all the various padlocks as he drops it and swings the metal door (mimicking metal door creaking open) open, you can see that the hinges are pretty reinforced against
the concrete and stone work that is inside of the
archway that it’s on top of, but on the other side of
it, it’s just pitch black except for a small orange
glow permeating from it, and it goes, welcome to Archtown. – Thank you. – Welcome to Archtown.
– And– – I’m gonna turn around. Are you still at the crow’s nest? – I’m up there and I got
eyes on you guys, and I got– – I’m just gonna be like– – Oh, he–
– Yeah, so he, if you haven’t been coming out and goes, whoa, wait, wait, wait. Your girl in the tower, too. – Yeah, they know you’re in there. – Yeah.
– Alright, alright. Here I come.
– Alright, so by the time Ray gets up to this door
into Archtown, so to speak, you can see a large, burly mountain man kind of a guy with a plaid lumberjack tone and just a kilt with long boots
that come up to his knees. – I love him.
– As well as simply a couple of, you can
see that he just took metal and just wrapped it around his
arms and then just laced it with a bunch of leather. – (laughing) I like this guy.
– Yes. – And you actually see
that he’s got a metal cloth around his neck as well,
too, as he comes and goes, (clearing throat) alright,
so who do I talk to here? – That would be me. (laughing) Yeah, just get it out. That’s great. – Ah, so who am I really talking to here. – Yeah, no, this is my mission. This is my expedition. – Ah, alright, alright, well, look. No guns inside, so Terry here will take all of your side arms
and your, don’t worry, no one’s gonna shoot you here, alright? But we don’t allow any projectile weapons inside of the town. Infrastructure’s bad. It’s also dark, really dark. – I’m liking this place more and more. – He checks out.
– Yeah. (laughing) – So, leave your stuff with Terry. Then you can come inside. – I’m already out. I don’t have anything, so. – Right, right. So as this bear of a man
escorts you essentially inside this town, you can see that it is pretty small community
for what is called Archtown. So as you all come into
this dark ominous abode, it looks a lot like if you
had an upper class version of some kind of underground shanty where homeless people
would’ve lived on the side of the freeways during the old era, but it has been plussed up
a lot, and is made to look as homey and as decorative as
something like that can be. A lot of the more fixed
structures seem to just be two by fours that have been pulled up, not even posted into the ground, but they’re just leaning up,
and the most fixed structures are actually ones that are
pinned into the wall of the arch, and since it’s not a huge amount of space, you can see that the
community probably houses 10, 15 people tops, so it’s really sparse, and you can kinda get it
all pretty much in a glance, but, again, this giant
bear of a dude comes in. Yeah, this is just where we
all collect for the night. We’ve got a few other
people up and around, but, alright boss man, why
don’t you step into my office and let’s talk about your (laughing) deal. – Sure, alright. – So this guy kind of escorts
you up into the main room leaving you four, essentially, to go explore Archtown a little bit. – Okay.
– Yeah. Also, I wanna take a look around
and see if there’s any way we can actually get a
train through without– – Destroying– – Yeah, destroying stuff.
– Without destroying stuff. – Right.
– Maybe there’s a compromise. Maybe I could help design a new door that opens up for the
supply line or something. – Yeah.
– Good move. – Well, we can, as you’re
looking across and kind of gathering all this
assessment, you can see that a lot of the structures
that are on the rail line, it’s not very comfortable, so
there’s actually some shanties or some parts of the town that
are just as wide as the rail, so there’s a wall on one side
and a wall on the other side, and they’ve used it a
little bit to prep it up, and the one thing that does
bother you a little bit is you can actually see
where the cross beams have been pulled out–
– Gotcha. – And it’s just now rail,
and you can see where they clearly dug out some of
the underlying loose gravel that’s usually laid
out for when rail track is put down, has been dug out
so they can pull these pieces of wood out and reuse them
to build their structures. – Okay. – So are most of the
structures wood, or is it tin? – Most of the structures are
wood and or tin or aluminum. – Okay.
– So either sheet metal. – Oh yeah.
– And pieces of strong wood. And you can actually
see some where they’ve repurposed camping hatches
that would be on the top of trucks or there’s even
an old mobile home in there that seems to be actually the
source of most of the power, ’cause you can hear the
generator in the back turning. – And can we see, sorry,
can we see through it to the other side, or is that– – You can see the end. You can definitely see the top of the end which is essentially a mirror of the door that you came through, so they’ve blocked up
– They’ve blocked it. – the other side as well, too. – Okay, so you’re saying we could, in theory, get the train through. – You could.
– We just need to put the– – Rail back together.
– Cross beam– – You’d have to put the rail back, you’d have to put the
cross beams back together, and you’d have to move some structures. – Some structures. – Not all of them, but it’s
definitely a through line, and you can also see that
they have their own hand cart that seems to be parked
towards the rear entrance. – If you’re gonna go talk to Terry, I just wanna pull you aside real quick and Wraith too, and keeping an eye out to see who else is listening, and I want it relatively private. – Yeah.
– If shit hits the fan, we can always smoke ’em out. It’s the least amount of casualties with the people being
removed from the tunnel. Just something to keep in mind. – Okay. – So as you four are kind of
assessing and looking around, you can see that a couple of people are showing interest in
you, and Terry’s like, yeah, man, we haven’t seen anyone over from the eastern states in a long time. Mostly we just see the copiers fly by. I don’t know, man, yeah, no,
I mean I definitely would, I’ve heard pretty good
things about the U.A. and I mean, this is a
shit show out here, man. There is infected every single
night when they come across. We hear them literally
packing around the doors almost every night. It is terrifying out
here, but if you’ve seen that little rail cart of
ours, it doesn’t go very far before it gets night time. – If we manage to get over here, it means we can probably get back. Only problem is, we need to get through. – Well, I mean, we spent a long time trying to just get this little thing secured. I don’t know how the boss is gonna feel making a big old arc in the doorway, just a big old welcome
inside kind of a situation. – But what if we help you–
– I’m curious how the boss is going to feel. – Well, we’ll get to that. (laughing) – I was gonna say, but we got some skills. – Yeah, not only that,
you said that you saw the helicopters coming by, right? – Right. – What if we had access
to those helicopters and could get you safely– – No shit. (laughing) – We’re making a lot of fucking progress. – I could get a ride on
the fucking helicopter? – Yeah, buddy. – That’s awesome. (laughing) Aww, man. You can watch as his
excitement is palpable, like he’s been living
inside of this dark hole for who knows how long,
and the smirk that he’s got across his face suddenly
becomes very serious. He’s like, wait, do
you guys have medicine? – Maybe. – Sarah, Sarah!
– Fuck. – And you watch as he
starts just barreling out towards over there, and you
watch as he grabs a woman who is about, maybe 35 or so. – Get ready to be popular.
– And comes out and he comes back and goes,
do you have any antibiotics? Any penicillin, anything? – Listen, I’m unfortunately
not in charge of this mission. You’re gonna have to talk to the big guy. – And now, hang on, okay. – Make sure you go and bug him. – Oh, okay, mister, I
respect that completely, but I’ve got, well, Sarah, you tell him. And you watch as she just has, you can tell that there’s just
grief in this woman’s face as she turns to you and goes, my son is sick, and we’ve, well, I don’t know what he has, and if any of you are
a doctor or any of you have anything on hand
to maybe help my boy, he’s just five, okay? I didn’t mean to have him, but he’s here, and he’s with us, and he’s
just vomiting all of the time. Now he’s not infected. I promise you, he hasn’t been
in contact with anything, but I don’t know, I think
he just had some bad water, and it’s just going through him everyday. Do you have anything? – Bandaid?
– Yeah. – Let’s just take a look. – Alright, I’ll take a look. – Okay.
– I’ll come with you. – So, Sarah escorts you over to a lean to that is modest, but it’s
definitely insulated, and you can tell that it is,
while it’s extremely warm, there is a young boy of about
10 years old on the floor. He is just shivering, shivering, and if you want, you can
make a first aid check to kinda just check the severity
of what his situation is. – (laughing) I hit my number. – Yeah.
– I’ve been rolling so high. – It’s fine. You hit the number, and you
look at him, and you can. He’s essentially–
– He’ll be fine. Just run around a bit. He’s a kid, he’ll bounce back. – Walk it off.
– Okay, so it’s viral. It’s probably ’cause he just is, he just looks like he’s got a stupid amount of dehydration. – Malnourished.
– He’s clearly dehydrated. And he’s just dripping in sweat
and has a raging fever, so. – You know what we need to get him? We don’t need to get him
antibiotics if he’s viral. We need to get this kid hydrated. – Yeah, I think, you know what, thank you for bringing me to him. – Does he seem–
– Yes, what’s wrong with him? – It seems like he’s
just severely dehydrated. – Okay. – At this point, back in our machine, I might have an IV drip
that I’d be able to– – Oh my god, he can’t hold down any water. It just goes right through him. – Right, right.
– But if we do the– – That’s priority number
one, is to get him hydrated. – Okay, alright, is
there anything I can do? Or can I help you to bring it over here? – You know what, let’s
bring him to our machine. – Okay, alright, here. And you watch as she
kind of grabs the boy, wraps him up in the cloak. – I don’t wanna cause a scene. The best thing that we can
do is keep this under wraps. – I’m a doctor. – She kinda hands the bundle over to you and cautiously goes, anything you can do, and she just passes you the
child as he is just bundled up and you can tell he’s in
and out of consciousness. – He’s febrile. We gotta get him hooked
up to saline right away. – So in the meantime,
you can kinda see Terry who’s just now, he’s
watching this go down, but that previous excitement,
now he kinda has anxiety a little bit in his voice. He just keeps looking up
towards the boss’ office where Asher is presumably
meeting up with him. – Terry, we’re gonna
need you to help us get this kid out and then back in. (exhaling) – Okay, okay, yeah, no, no, no. This is important, so absolutely. – Hey, hey, inside voice. – Okay, okay, okay,
okay, alright, alright. I’ll stay at the door,
and if anyone comes, I’ll just knock a bunch of times and I’ll just do what I
can to hold them, okay? – I have to ask you one more favor, Terry, and you’ve gotta trust us
really hardcore this time. We’re going out there,
and we’re going out there without any firearms. Can you give us back one? (groaning) – And you’re going
outside of the building. Okay, yeah, alright. He hands at least probably Jenny’s rifle and her stuff back, at least while he has the small arms right now. – Are they coming too? – Are you coming, Wraith? – I was gonna remain. – Yeah, you guys stay put. We’ll handle this.
– Yeah, just give Bandaid his handgun back. – Okay, not my rifle. – No, ’cause you’re carrying the kid. – Fair point. – Alright, so as you leave,
you can kinda see Terry just nervously hanging by the door, checking himself every once in a while as we go up into the top
with all of the bear man and the Asher speak, so. So what are you doing
in my little Archtown? – Well, actually, first,
let me introduce myself. I am Asher Emerson Stern the third. – Alright, Asher Emerson Stern the third. Nice to meet you. – Likewise, and I didn’t catch your name. – You can call me Bear. – Bear, fantastic. Well, Bear, we’re setting
up a supply line here over to the Livingstone community. They just had the line from Chicago get knocked down, so we’re trying to– – Who the hell is the
Livingstone community? – You guys have been out
here for a while, I take it. – Yeah. – Fantastic, alright. Well, here’s what we need. We need to ideally get
through here on a train. – Through here to where? Out in the middle of butt fucking nowhere? – Out toward Kansas City. – Shit.
– That’s where we’re headed. – Kansas, you know that place
is unreclaimable, right? – I do, yeah. – I don’t get why you
wanna go to Kansas City, but you can’t go through my town. – We’re ending just shy of Kansas City before things get bad,
and we’re looking to carve a path out West to
make this area more safe. If, if there is a functioning
supply line through this area, however we end up doing it,
that does mean your town and your people will have
access to medical supplies, food, water, better infrastructure that you would never get any other way, so I would be open to
allowing you partial ownership of this leg of the rail,
allowing you to collect tolls and have some autonomy. – Well, here’s the
reality of the situation. One, I don’t give a shit about your U.A. laws of reacclimation. This is my town.
– That’s fair. – This is my part, but I am interested in food and medicine and a trade route. So here’s what we’re gonna do, Asher. You’re gonna barter and bribe
with this guy a little bit. – I’ve still got one success. – To see if you got
your deal a little bit, so he’s essentially going
to ask you for first right of refusal on the first leg of goods as part as this town
goes, which means that he’s going to want to
get the best stuff first since he’s essentially the
first leg of this trip, and you’ll be able to negotiate for all intents and
purposes how much of that he has access to as far
as barter and trade goes. And it’s actually we’re opposing, so I’m gonna roll his
stuff, and essentially mine will cancel out yours,
and we’re just gonna do this in one roll, alright? (rolling dice) – 46
– Against your barter– – My bar is 45.
– Man. – Whew.
– 45. – And I have this degree
of success that I banked. – Yep, that you banked it from the round. – Well played. – So, I think you guys
struck a very favorable deal in your side of matters,
so you basically– – Thanks guys not here. – are going to be able to get access to this line of the road. He will make the appropriate
changes necessary to Archtown in order to
have the train go through, and even though he’s getting first pick, it’s of only a limited quantity of items, so he can’t over-buy and
hoard and resell, essentially, so to speak, so you gave him first right of refusal on items, but
only to a limited quantity. This is a total win on your circumstances. Alright, well, we’ll make it happen. Thank you for your time,
Asher Emerson Stern the Third. – No, thank you, you’ve
been very understanding. – So what can we think
about for a down payment? – Down payment? – I’m just fucking with you. (laughing) – You had me going there. Alright, let’s get you and
your team through this. We got a lotta moving to do. – Alright. – So you guys take, oh
yeah, so absolutely, Jenny and Wraith, you
can actually see there’s a lotta people who are roaming
around in part of this. Again, a couple of limited families, but you can see that there’s
definitely a couple of rag and bone men kind
of barter trader types that have a couple of random items that I can make available
in a resource catalog if you wanna spend
survival points for them, but they all essentially seem
to be either like Terry here who is a little bit of a
gatherer in his own right, but even more interesting,
there’s an old woman who, Wraith, you probably
immediately gravitate towards, and she– – Of age and wisdom? – Of age and wisdom. (laughing) she mostly gets your attention
’cause she turns to you from her rocking chair that she
kind of propped on the porch of her lean to, and she
goes, you there boy. You have the mark of
the devil, it appears. What are you doing? – Maybe devil stuff, old lady. (laughing) – Our little charmer. – Well, you got the mouth
of the serpent as well, too. You’re going to bring death to this place. I can see it. I can feel it in my bones. – I don’t need to bring it. It’s already here. – You stink of it. There’s something about you I don’t like. – You can sense it. – I can. I can feel it as if there’s some kind of weight upon you that,
you carry a lot with you as if you sold your soul
to something more devious than anyone else has to deal with. – That was long ago. I’ve made many amends since then. – A man like you doesn’t make amends. He just creates more. That’s what you do when
you deal with Satan. He doesn’t give the deal back. He just makes the contract longer. And you watch as she gets out of her chair and slams the door behind her. (laughing) – I look disturbed. (laughing) – God. – So, Asher, you come down
from Bear’s hovel, so to speak, and you meet up with Jenny and Wraith who are still kind of hanging around. Wraith looks like he just had an awkward encounter with a local. – Bear, the burly fellow
who runs this place, agreed to let us bring the rail through in return for first pick of goods, and, yeah, we simply make
the modifications necessary to the town and the rail itself,
and we will be on our way. – It’s gonna take about a day. – To modify it? – To modify in order to get
the rail driver through. – Can we get the rail
driver closer to the door? – Absolutely.
– Okay. – ‘Cause we don’t know what you just said. We were somewhere else. – Where are Bandaid and the other one? – Yeah, you know, look,
there was this kid. He was really sick, and, you know, they took him
back to the rail driver, and they’re just, they’re
hydrating him, so– – We’re using medical
supplies on the locals? – Yes, yes, we are, we are. I thought it would be an act of charity. Something to get them on our side, but you did that, so good job. – What does the kid have? – I’m not sure. A viral infection. – Okay, I’d like to go out to the rail driver and have a look. – Okay, so Asher kind of
comes into the rail driver. – Oh, well, okay. – As he kinda pops up, per
his, what he suggested, – As he is want to do. – and sees the boy laid out, and he’s no– – Yeah, actually, I wanted to have a quick moment with that, too. – Oh, please, yes. – When we brought him in, I
wanted to have you set him down, and then I wanna spend survival
points to get an IV drip. – Absolutely, yep. – And then I’m actually
gonna hand you the drip, and I’m like, can you set this up? – Absolutely. – And I’m gonna start examining the kid, but I’m keeping an eye on Ray. – Okay, yeah. – Is the kid conscious? – Barely, in and out. – Yeah, in and out. He’s moaning. He’s essentially dealing
with an immense amount of pain and fever at the moment. – Okay, I’m gonna talk
to him while we’re going. Just keeping aware–
– Okay, so if you set up the IV, then I’ll administer
the procedure of putting it in. – Drip line in.
– Great. – Cool. – So sweetie, what’s your name? – Tim. – Tim, that’s a good name. That’s a good strong name. Tim, we’re just gonna do some tests here and give you some medicine
to make you feel better. Is that okay, sweetie? – Mom says I’m not supposed
to get help from strangers. – Uh huh, but we’re not strangers. We talked to your mom. – Okay.
– And Bandaid. (laughing) – With a name like that,
he can probably fix you up, don’t you think? – I like that name. (laughing)
– Thanks. – I’m Ray. – You’re pretty, Ray. – Thank you. – What am I, chopped liver? (laughing) – He’s funny. (laughing) – You got the saline in, yeah? – Yeah, and–
– A good personality. – It’s in.
– Oh, it hurts. – I know it hurts, sweetie. Hey, do you think that we can give you a little medicine by your mouth? Do we have any Aspirin
to get his fever down? – We can try. It might be a little too
acidic for his stomach. He hasn’t had anything to eat. – Ibuprofen. – There should be Advil in
there too, or some kind of– – I’m gonna see if I can
find, what, acetaminophen? – Or ibuprofen.
– Well, ibuprofen. – Ibuprofen is less harmful.
– Ibuprofen would be better. – Yeah, for the fever, so– – I guess. – Yeah, he takes the medicine. You can tell– – Let me crush it up.
– Yeah, yeah. – Okay, cool, yeah. So you maybe mix it in
water and let him drink it. – At this point, then, that’s the moment that I gotta be able– – Yeah, so he’s taking the IV. It’s dripping. You can actually see,
even in just a few minutes while Asher is coming in that it’s– – Most of the time– – It’s helping the fever a lot. This kid has had nothing. Is anyone wanting to help clear? ‘Cause someone’s gonna be
watching Tim here in the center, but is anyone gonna be helping
speed along the process of– – Can we also just get the
rail driver closer to the town? – Absolutely. – Can we do that in our– – Yeah, that’s without any issue. – Okay, awesome. – The heater’s been
running, so you can move it without any real problems. – So once I’ve got the
thing closer up to the door, I’ll pop out and help ’em inside. – Alright, so let’s
have you three all make, in best case, engineering checks, and for you two who are just– – Yeah, go ahead. – One thing, too, before we get into that, I wanna go to Jenny and say, we’re going to start
clearing all this, yes? – Mmhmm. – It’s better if you do the
clearing for this woman’s house and that I not do it. She won’t trust me. If I change things on her house, she’ll think I’m trying to wreck it. – Devil man. – Okay. – I’ll do two other
houses if you do this one. (laughing) – Ha, deal. I like that. – Okay.
– So, for manual labor, lift and pull and for
engineering, engineering. Let’s check on this ’cause
this is just gonna help modify the time a little bit. (rolling dice) – Okay, so 13? – Mmhmm. – I rolled a six. – Degrees of success, degrees of failure? – That’s gonna be three,
where are you at here? Yeah, three success. – Okay, and Jenny and Wraith? – Three success. – I’ve got one degree of failure. – Okay. – If you wanted to help,
I could watch the kid. – I don’t really wanna leave his side. – Okay, nevermind. – So between six degrees minus
one for a degree of failure, I actually am happy to report
that between your three help, you can actually get this
thing done in 1/2 a day. You could be out by tomorrow morning. – Fantastic. – Turning this thing from a 24-hour job into an 18-hour job. To kind of tidy this
mission up a little bit, you essentially did a modification to a stronghold, which,
in this circumstances, I’m gonna give you a bonus
25 survival points for to get into it, so we’ll modify that here. – Sick. – That’s 25, so you now have 50. – Minus any you’ve spent, yeah? – Minus any that may have been spent, and you still have 405
inside of the rail driver at this stage. You also helped a kid,
and he at this point, even 24 hours, his fever
broke through the middle of the night with the
medicine and the hydration, and by the next morning,
you were able to deliver her back to Sarah with a
huge amount of improvement as far as stability goes,
and she can’t even begin to thank you. – Sarah? – Okay, alright, alright. – Yeah. – Thank you. So now you can pick the rail
driver up in the morning to be able to take it towards Eureka which will begin in the next episode. (intense music) (dramatic tribal music)
