The Vladivostok Kind – Ch 5

5. LIKE A REAL ACTION HERO Yuri went to the roof early the next morning. It had been a long night and he needed ballast for the day ahead.  He had developed his pre-run rituals in Syria, hunting SDF militia in the hills outside Aleppo and Deir-ez-Zor.

Wasteland Patrol #3: Cleaning Day

Some photos from last Tues’ Game Night. Sorry I didn’t get these posted sooner: camera cable port broke, so it took a few days to get a card reader from Amazon. Anyway… the intrepid Wasteland Lawmen were at it again, with the help of Dog Boy and a Gun-for-Hire named Lucius. A water trader brought […]
