Survival Drill – Escape from quarantine

You are working in a large drug manufacturing complex when a a virus escapes. The facility is quarantined. Can you find the anti-viral drug and escape before you are infected?

We’ll be playing this Endure-style game on Friday, Oct 14, at 8pm CST / 9pm EST. No experience needed – anyone can join. Come 15 minutes early if you need help getting setup, especially with Discord’s audio chat.

Try to arrive on time, but it’s still possible to join after the game has started. Players arriving late will start at a disadvantage and will have some inventory items chosen for them.

Endure is about being in the wrong place at the wrong time and surviving in a harsh situation. You are not a hero – just a regular person trying to deal with a bad situation. And you’ll be part of a team of TPers trying to get through it together.

Optional: Create a Character

Endure characters have a background (who are you), an asset (skill or knowledge), and a trouble (weakness, disability, or flaw). You can create a character based on yourself, create a fictional character, or accept a pre-made character when you arrive.

Join us on Discord, find more information in the “#prepper-chat-night > Game Night” thread, and let us know you’ll be joining.

      As the Judge (like a dungeon master) I encourage anyone to join and you don’t need to know how to play, I will guide you through that. If you just want to watch please do! Also you can decide to be on or off camera.

      Our adventure will take place in a drug manufacturing complex. Here’s a video that shows what such places are like.

        That was a good video showing the various rooms and equipment we might be encountering. Reminds me of a James Bond movie, trying to escape a factory or something. Maybe I’ve been playing too much Goldeneye 007 on the N64 lately.

      Study hint for our upcoming game: Consider reviewing this guide on civil unrest. You’re not the only person trapped in this situation, and you need to be ready for how others might react to the combination of disease outbreak and forced quarantine.

      How to prepare for and survive civil unrest 

      One more person, Gabo, has joined the game for this Friday. If you’d like to join as well, or even if you’d like to hang out and watch, come chat with us in Discord.

      “Pathogen containment failure in building C. Anyone in building C without protective gear is already dead. National guard is on the way to enforce quarantine…”

      Panic erupted in the lunchroom before the announcement had even finished. Everyone rushed towards the exits. Almost everyone…

      Latasha (Eric) tried desperately to move with the crowd and avoid getting trampled, but ended up with a badly sprained ankle. Dmitri (Gideon) just continued eating his lunch, and was irritated that his soup was spilled by his panicking coworkers. Aaron (Seth) flattened against a wall and managed to avoid the crowd entirely. When they found themselves alone, the three friends decided to work together. They would find protective gear, enter building C, and find the antiviral so that everyone could go home safely.

      After hours of searching, the three friends had found enough protective equipment to let only one person enter building C. They now face a difficult decision. Do they split up and race to get the antiviral as quickly as possible? Or do they keep searching, in hopes of staying together, and risk succumbing to exhaustion as they delay?
