Viktor, Doc Kirill, Boris, and Nico, military men known as the Ratsnakes, have been tasked with recovering a power generator and getting is back to working condition. Word has it that a group of bandits have been trashing it for parts. The generator is located in an area known for anomalous activities and strange creatures. This also means there’s extra money to be made.
Viktor, the group leader is armed with an AK47 as is Doc Kirill, the company medic. Nico has his trusty Dragunov Sniper Rifle and Boris has his RPD Machine Gun. All of them are veterans.
The Zone is at Threat Level 2. I’m using option 1 on the Solo V2 rules.
It was quite the game! This is the first Zone run I’ve done at Threat Level 2. I played two games at Threat Level 1 and it was a walk in the park. I was not ready for the lethality of these Zone Hostiles. Cover and Distance from the enemy is invaluable. It was a big mistake triggering the second Hotspot while being so close. Yes, they were on alert, but being so close the Rad Ghouls were able to charge in right away and start cutting down my crew. Likewise on the third hotspot. The boys, especially Boris, should have stayed behind the cars where they would have benefited from the hard cover.
As they say in the Zone, if you expect rats, you’ll get bandits. Be ready next time, comrades.
