STILL A HOPE

 Los Angeles

In the streets and ruins of what was the flourishing city of Los Angeles, more than three thousands operatives are guiding the living with only one goal, the survival of man. Civilization has vanished, many are losing any hope and some on their way to become beasts worse than the zombies themselves. But if I asked my men to restart the printing machines found in Los Angeles Municial Center, it's to tell you, there is still a hope, The end of civilization is not irreversible, nothing condemn us to become savages. We are still americans, and starting with this very fist american value, freedom of speech and so free press, we can revive and maintain american civilization. And, if it won't be easy, if we can preserve civilization, we can also preserve not only "humans", but humanity, our humanity.
Operative Rapace.


SPECIAL CONTEST

Tell Us More About NECRA Safehouses

Los Angeles Deadly News sponsor, the NECRA Officer Rosslessness, is organizing the first writing and pictures competition after the Zombocalypse. Here is the presentation he sent us :

So begins the first of many competitions designed to help the damned in Los Angeles.
Throughout the county are strange blue boxes. They are called NECRA safehouses. We know little about them. Even NECRA themselves keep their content guarded. A short press release give the following vague description.
“Many of these relatively small fortified shelters were quickly set up in the last days when NECRA was still operational, and can be found scattered throughout urban areas.
They feature a homing beacon which can be detected from a short distance by NECRA hand-cranked radios. Safehouses are heavily reinforced and feature entrances which are designed to be inaccessible to the living dead. Shipping containers are the most common type, with the entrance as a hatch in the top of the container.”
But we want to know EXACTLY what they are like inside, and are willing to pay handsomely for the information.
Simply put, we want pictures, drawings, writings, technical specs, models or designs for what exactly a NECRA safehouse is. The best submissions will be rewarded with glittering prizes, including :
  • A Limited edition SAW. (95 Firepower and no longer available in NECRA purchases). This baby is perfect for hunting living beings.
  • Chemical Packs. A selection of 5 Research chemicals, perfect for that delivery mission.
  • Landmark lists. A list of ten of the more obscure landmarks to add to your list. (Warning : Mr_Sivart will probably have found them already.)
The competition will last 2 weeks, and all prizes will be delivered by hand to your destination. Please submit all entries via the Wotld Forum.
So get creative!
