Post by: Gnorse on November 02, 2016, 04:18:00 PM

Guess I should tell you more about this fine place we have secured. I am someone obsesed with tech to the point were I augmented myself with commercial bionics... I am good at mechanics, electronics and computers. With the help of former first responders and military personel left behind when it all went down we took over a radio station on the outskirts of town. We done many supply raids and have food, medicine, raw material and weapons but no ammo, fuel or meanigful tools beyond hammers and screwdrivers. We have a reloading station, food preservation racks, crating stations and this hear radio transmiter I managed to get working. I am bradcasting as the pseudonym of spreader, that is what I am going by. Folks hear have named this place radio hub but that is subject to change. We have ti good here save for the horde in the distance... Spreader out."

A message comes in, with some minor static. You can make out what appears to be machines or electrical engines humming in the background. A somewhat feminine (or androgynous) voice starts talking.

Oy, Nathan, is this a joke? Are you really telling us that you shot a Nuke at a city, dooming it's citizens in the process? You should know how small the number of survivors is, and you got nothing better to do then blowing a few more up? You're really...ugh, nevermind. I wish good luck to everyone near the explosion, if you survive, let us know and we can come and help as best we can.

MMR can take a tank shell at point blank and punch a man so hard he explodes. Good luck with that.

If we make this an ongoing thing I'd rather have MMR be more of an unknowable force than a main character.

((due to an unfortunate series of workshifts and general election-related stress (im not even american what is this) I'm not really keeping up with this too well. Those of you hoping to get into the lab may ad-lib it as you see fit. Expect a very mutated, birch-antlered, bear-tree creature. It won't be hostile, but it won't really be able to reply by radio any more.))



The faint radio signal returns, but what is heard closer resembles laboured breathing than words. Noises and clacks are heard as if someone is slapping at the radio dials clumsily. Animal, possibly? This noise remains quiet, possibly someone is trying to listen on standby. The signal eventually fades to silence and cuts out as the batteries maintaining the broadcast have likely died.

By now I'am just ranting, and what I said will never make sense. I'am in the a harbor, trying to get a boat to work. If this boat ever launches, I'am aheading for Greenland. Not much people there, so not much zombies. I doubt I be able to broadcast anything. But I did got one of those long range raidos, so if you can manage to get amp up a raido tower, I might be able to contact you guys again.I won't don't bother coming here becuase it already looted, tons of broken boat in Plymouth Harbor through.Best of luck to me."

(Is it? Stuff like that could happen in CDDA :P and we can clearly hear the difference.)

A familiar voice is heard through the Radio, namely Noire. The mild static from last time is gone, the humming of engines stopped as well, instead you can hear..what appears to be hammering and welding in the background.

Jolly good day, Dr. what was it? Howard?

A different voice, definitely female voice is heard in the background. The noises stop while the second voice is talking.

Howell, not Howard.

Right, Howard. Ehem, anyways. You said you're selling some kind of...whaddya call it, Serum? How about an explanation of what it actually does? And please in Layman's terms, I'm not really into all that scientific stuff. I might be willing to drive over to your place, if it sounds valuable. Anything in particular you'd like to get your hands on? Food, Power, Water, Weapons...? I...aquired quite a few weapons with fitting magazines and ammo, I could trade those away, if you like. Maybe I'll even give you a few pointers on how to not shoot yourself if I like you.

Noire laughs, then the Broadcast stops.

[Currently got myself an NPC, so I figured I build her into it :P By the by: Noire is male, but looks rather androgynous, and his voice fits to his looks, so people can easily think he's a gal.]

Light static is heard for a few seconds, then Dr. Howell's voice comes on.

"Finally, contact with another human being! I swear, waiting for the damn radio to work was nerve-wracking. All the noise! Could have attracted a horde!
Anyway, you wanna know about the serums I got? I caught a few rats and injected them with both kinds I have.
The serum that looks like zombie goo is apparently a highly-concentrated Slime mutagen. Mutagen is stuff that... changes ya. Good or bad. The test rat looked disgusting, so I shot the hell out of it.
The other serum I have found is dark greenish and when I injected it into the rat, the damn thing grew like damn scales and shit. It also tried to attack me, but I struck it with a piece of rebar.
I'd like some food and water. Running low. Also ammo for my RM99 if you got it. Serum is valuable as hell. But I didn't really work on this kind of shit 'fore the Cataclysm. I worked on bionics and shit. I could give you a Power Storage Mark II CBM and Fingerhack CBM as a bonus.
Also, who's the bird?"

From an abrupt few seconds of white noise emerges a masculine voice with a distinct Asian accent. In the background there is a constant mechanical grinding noise and occasionally sounds of footsteps on metal floor.

"This is Corporal Zhou of the O. G. Army 37th Auxillary Company speaking, the full action of Operation Spark had to be delayed due to constant rain. Luckily the rains also seemed to hamper the spores' spread through air so we had more time to eliminate the animated growths. However, we have faced unexpected resistance from infested and apparently brainwashed citizens with firearms ... one of us was KIA while three are wounded, luckily the infestations are cured promptly. Currently we are stationed at the border of the infested region west of Chit... wait, am I using the pub... sh*t..."

The broadcast suddenly ended and fell back to fading static.

The...bird? Oh, you mean Alice? Another Survivor I picked up not too long ago. Was apparently attacked by some bandits and got barely away, with a dozen wounds. I brought her into my...ehem, car, if you want to call it that, and took care of her.

Alice interjetcs

And since then I took care of Noire. You wouldn't believe how messy he is!

...yes, thanks, nobody needed to know that. Apart from cleaning our Vehicle every once in a while she's also a capable...Gunsmith? She just finished a...what was it again, Alice?

An UPS Rifle. You stick the Cord into an UPS and it shoots Lasers.

Right, right. I personally prefer my FN FAL, but hey, that UPS Rifle could come in handy. In any case...Food, Water, and Ammo...the RM99 you say? Isn't that this huge revolver with the 8x40mm caseless ammo? Sorry, no chance, this ammo is rare as hell.  How about a M1911 or L39? I got tons of 9x19mm and .45, so I could get you a few hundred bullets. As for Food, do you cook? Or are you even able to cook? I could make a little package with ingredients. Or I simply grab a few Cans and MRE's I have left from my last haul. Water isn't a problem, I have 120L of clean water in my tanks. I think we can come to an agreement there. This Lizard Serum might be interesting - you said it can grow scales, yes? I'd consider that more armor against those annoying Zeds, so count me in, name your price. We'll be driving over.

[If that 'meeting' is really taking place, send me a pm or so. We can exchange how our characters look for example, and decide how the trade will end.]

Post by: Dr. Howell on November 19, 2016, 02:47:32 PM
Little static begins to play and Dr. Howell is heard once more.
"Hmm. No RM99 ammo. I do have a M1911 though. Found it on one of my dead colleagues. Next to him was a mi-go. I didn't even question how he died. As for food, I have food, but not the stuff to cook it.  Water, good deal.
The serums will cost you....
500 dollars. I lowered this shit down from 100,000 dollars. That was the pre-Cataclysm cost.
But... if you are planning on driving, it's a science lab with the entrance covered with blood.
About the serum though... It also gives more then just scales. Gives you like reptile eyes and a crap ton of other lizard shit.
Slight banging is heard.
...Fuck. A mi-go's here and banging on my damn door. Good thing it's locked. Be careful."

Laughter is audible.
I'll be careful with the stuff, Promise. I prefer staying human, so I would just keep it for...emergencies I guess? Also, why don't you open the door for your Amigo? Sounds like he's in Danger.

[Yes, the usual a mi-go vs. Amigo! Also, my character basically only encountered a lot of zeds, no mi-gos or other horrors yet. He's a lucky one I guess.]

Some static is heard and Dr. Howell speaks.
"No. Mi-gos are crab things that mimic the human voice and will kill people. Also, I tried to change the Lizard Serum. Then I found out the stuff needed to change it doesn't work anymore. I never even worked on the stuff pre-Cataclysm! Worked on bionics. So, yeah...

A accentless monotone voice parrots Dr. Howell.
"Worked on bionics. [begins mimicing a klaxon]"

Dr. Howell begins to talk again.
"You bloody hear that?! That's what I meant by the thing mimicing people! Also, it's currently mimicing a police car.

Electrical Engines are faintly heard in the background, as well as some slight clattering, indicating that someone is driving - and apparently they aren't using a good road. Or a road at all.

Is...this Crab-thingy a result of those serums? Sure es hell sounds like it, and they have to be big to kill humans, right?

Then you hear a crashing sound, and someone, presumedly Alice, starts to curse. Then, a heavy sigh from Noire.

Might take a while. A few roads were flooded with zombies for some reason, so we're offroading. And just crashed with a boulder, by the looks of it. Armor plating should hold, but we have to check for damage nonetheless. Uhm...yah, well. We will be preparing a few things to trade in the meantime. Do you have a working powersource? I bet those Laboraties should have backup generators of some kind. We could sell you a few knives and a messkit or two which run off of UPS, that should help you out I guess?

Post by: Dr. Howell on November 19, 2016, 03:56:42 PM
Some slight static, barely noticeable. Dr. Howell is heard.
"No. Mi-gos aren't from the serums. Don't know where they're from. And they are certainly big enough to kill humans. As for a power source... 2 back-ups running. Don't know how long they'll last. A couple messkits and some knives will do. You said the roads were flooded with zombies? Anything like those big shocking zombie things I've heard of?
Title: Re: Radio Chat RP topic
Post by: Kadian on November 19, 2016, 04:07:01 PM
The Engines stopped, as well as the other noises. Instead, someone hammers on metal.
Eh...You mean the slightly glowy ones with CBM's in them? Yah, a few. Also Spitters and those fat exploding ones, with that odd pink Bile. We figured It's safer to stay clear of them, we do have a few turrets on our vehicle, but those won't help us when we're stuck in the middle of a horde of zombies.

The hammering stops for a minute.
Tell him we're back on track in a few minutes, I just have to fix a few little dents!
Then the hammering returns, with vigor!
I believe you heard her. We'll start moving soon. Is there a reason you asked about the Shockers? You don't want us to kill them and bring their corpses to you, do you?

The broadcast is clear for once and Dr. Howell is heard.
"No. I was just curious if those things were about. The exploding ones can go fuck a spear. Damn things nearly killed me when I went outside once. Anyway, I found one more serum. Light blue and seems to be the last one. I found some papers next to it that talk about it. Says it's supposed to be "the next step in human evolution". Bet whoever made this was talking out of their ass. Anyway, how was life for you both 'fore all this shit happened? Just curious."

Post by: Kadian on November 19, 2016, 07:47:11 PM
Engines are heard, once again! And something that sounds like Laserguns, shooting. (i would assume they do make a sound of sort xD)

That sounds more interesting than the Lizard one. Still same price?

And as for your question: I was a mechanic before this shit started. Worked In a factory not too far away. When this...outbreak hit i was able to get to one of those shelters. I waited there for a while before deciding to go out and see what's going on. I tried to survive ever since, until I got cornered by those Bandits. I was barely able to drive them away, but I was heavily wounded. Actually didn't think I would survive that day, but then Noire came and helped me.

I on the other hand...well, back in the day people would have called me a Thief. Not one of those fancy thieves with bionic modifications, just one of those oldschool people with some lockpicks. Even had a Gun back then, one of those compact 9mm pistols, for emergencies. Never actually used it. When the Cataclysm struck I was hiding, like most of the other survivors you can encounter, but my curiosity eventually won and i headed out to see what exactly happened. I heard people speaking about bombs, riots, even attacks from China and Russia, you know? I guess it was kinda foolish to head out with all those stories, but I wanted to know the truth. I did find out the Truth, when a zombie dog found and attacked me, I barely survived that encounter. In hindsight, i just survived because of my pistol, but it was a close call either way. Since then I tried to stay clear from big cities, I slowly started to amass a hoard of electronics, books, food and other stuff that could come in handy and even started tinkering with some cars. More than once I electrocuted myself or hurt myself in some accident, but I managed to learn from my mistakes, and eventually I was able to...well, basically I took parts from some Military Vehicles I found and some Trucks and welded everything together. I made myself a mobile Home of sorts, where I could stash everything I found, and live in relative peace. Doesn't even need fossil fuel anymore, managed to grab a few dozen solar panels and some electric engines.

The static has returned.
"First off, same price for the Alpha serum. Second, as for what I did, I was a scientist here, as you were probably expecting. I was here in the lab when the shit hit the fan. Everyone locked themselves in, then suddenly, one of us noticed a single door wasn't locked. Shocker zombie burst through, next thing you know, 50 scientists are dead. Took me and 6 other guys all the firepower we had to kill it. Eventually 3 of the guys starved. 2 of us 4 remaining guys put themselves in cryogenics. The last guy left with some experimental power armor and a flamethrower and a couple of CBMs."

And the person who spoke was chinese, I just know it. Asian Accent, AND he was named Zhou! I told you, Noire, there is truth to the Chinese attacking!
A heavy Sigh from Noire

Or maybe it was a codename. Every single person who heard of the Romance of the three Kingdoms know the name Zhōu Yú for example, and who wouldn't want to have him as a Codename? Zhōu Yú was one hell of a general in the novel, he even won against Cao Cao in the Battle of the Red Cli...

Following a long white noise, the Asian male voice emerged again, the voice is not as clear as the last time, with interruptions happening occasionally. The background noise is also louder, with a constant mechanical whirring and metallic noise akin to a moving tank.

Alright, we, the [static] Army 37th Auxillary Company, warns whoever out there still alive in [static] Vermont ...  and hell, even further south ... please stay away, I repeat, stay [static] from anything akin to a low-floating yellowish cloud ... no I'm friggin' serious, inhaling them would be the last thing you [wish] to do.
Also, for any [static] out there ... if you see anything akin to giant white moving [static], kill them with fire or industrial-grade [static], and, as an advice, move away from the place as soon [static] as if you see one, there is usually dozens, if not hundreds or [static] around.

The static gets interrupted, a slightly...agitated Noire speaks.

Corporal Zhou of the 37th Auxillary Company, come in. Please explain, what is going on in Vermont? Dr. Howell, myself and a few other Survivors are in New Hampshire, basically next to Vermont. Are we in Danger? How many of your Company are left, do you need Aid?

The white noise appears briefly again and then dissappeared into, surprisingly, a feminine voice, this time the signal is a lot clearer, and the mechanical noises in the background have also ceased.

"This is Clay Foxtail speaking here. What captain Zhou just mentioned is ...... well, some sort of giant moving mushroom that reproduces them extremely fast and would infest people with floating spores and ... apparently mind-control them. They were maybe of the same origin as these giant crabs according to Sherwood Tompkins, a research assistant we have rescued from the ruins of a lab. I know that it was very hard to believe, but it was real, you need to really take care of these. And also, the thing he just mentioned is agricultural-grade fungicide. Yes, Earth fungicide somehow works just as well on these thing.

As for the toxic cloud thing... well, it was a giant spore cloud released by the aforementioned fungus. When we demolished the central fungal spire in Chittenden with a M3 Gustav, the base erupted like some sort of goddamned spore volcano for nearly a minute, the spores was then blown south by the wind and we can do absolutely nothing about them because of the sheer quantity. Luckily these things would probably die out in one or two days if left alone in the atmosphere, preferably before they reached your location. Also, they moves quite slowly and you can spot them far away on the horizon. Running like hell in the opposite direction does wonders on your safety.

I'd take charge of the radio in the following days since I don't have much to do here in this caravan -- uh, I mean, unit. I'm a former surgical doctor, but none here currently needs surgery."

The white noise appears again and then shifted into the voice of Foxtail. The background was still relatively clear but her speech is not: apparently she is eating something.
"We didn't haf a official name for these things. *Umf* But as for us, we prefer to call them "fungaloid" since they are like Earth fungus but not the same. *Umf* This name's credit goes to Thompkins, our science guy."

I mean, their action actually does correspond to my gameplay, and I did not encounter any super nuke-proof cyborg mutant in the process of burning down a fungal infested area. )

Foxtail's voice emerges from a brief period of loud static. Mechanical backgraound noises can be heard again, it seemed they are again on the move.

"About the fungaloids? Well, their spores don't only infest human. It seems that just like the thing that made the zombies, they can take over any animals larger than... hell, we don't know, just large animals in general. Also, speaking of the zombifying things, there's a fact: whatever these things are, they seems to be weaker than the fungaloid spores.

Static is heard, until someone...seems to HIT the Ham Radio they are using, then the broadcast starts getting clearer. You hear...normal Engine noises? That's different.
Damn Thing...remember me to look into it. To your morsecode, those beeps mean S-O-S ; Wasn't there a guy who wanted to fly a plane to somewhere? That could be him, for all we know. Probably crashlanded somewhere. It will probably be crawling with Zeds by now, barely any chance of survivors. Welp. Anyways, Noire is currently in our...'cockpit' and is driving, while I'm on the Radio. Had to switch to regular Engines because we had a run-in with zombies and our Batteries are running low, so no electrical Engines until the solars refill our batteries.

Short, strong static abruptly emerged and quickly turned to discernable voice of Clay Foxtail.

"We are originally a group of ten, but we now only have six. One of us is killed in the last operation, and two left two weeks ago because they are disgusted at ... well, some of us.
 
You are in ... New Hampshire? If I remembered correctly? If you can join us in central Vermont, that would be very nice as we are currently in heavy need of helping hands. If you say so, we can start to move to the state border as the fungal cloud have now settled and we have just burned down most of the resulting growths. Although we're formally part of a military unit of the Old Guards or the former U.S. Army, we are not so oblieged to follow their orders, and their commanding system was so chaotic that I am pretty sure there are more than one 37th Company."

Foxtail paused and sighed.

Long, strong static emerged before the voices come, and light noises persisted throughout Foxtail's speech. This time her signal is apparently not as good.

"Harker Zhou, the one that gathered all of us, was probably the most heavily mutated of us. [Static] had almost completely transformed into some sort of human-bird hybrid, complete with giant feathered wings, talons, reverse-joint legs and a powerful beak... he never told us explicitly how he got to this point, but by some of his [Static] seemed that it involved some sort of nomadic bandits and a bunch of [Static]. He also told us that a mutation so serious can only be caused by a serum.

Another one of us, Eunice Myers, is a much simpler case. She is a furry who's brain seemed to be somewhat [Static], enough said. She downed who-knows-how-much [Static] of mutagens labelled as "felis" we found in a derelict lab, and now she's got the ears and tails she wanted, but now everything other than raw meat and fresh water make her vomit [Static] and she now needs to take vitamin pills regularly ... not worth to be symphasized, I think."

The radio suddenly begins emitting a loud, high-pitched wail, like a feedback surge.
What follows is speech, but it does not sound like any human voice you've heard. The words are felt, rather than heard, and they seem to echo in your mind, as if they were your own thoughts.

We are the Mycus. Obey us. Join us. We will feed you. We will make you better.
The "voice" is suddenly replaced by a normal, but desperate-sounding human voice, with a slightly Hispanic accent
Hello? Can anyone copy? My name is [static] Crisanto. There's a man with two mininukes headed toward [static]. Repeat, there's a schizophrenic, heavily-mutated [static] headed toward the city of [static].

You can hear the usual slight static before Noire starts talking.

Ok...that....was...weird? uhm...anyways..Crisanto, half of your...message was just a garbled mess. And you're killing my ears with your feedback loop, knock it off.

He then coughs a little.

So...Foxtail, do you read? Or Captain Zhou or whoever is left of the 37th whatever it was. I just met up with Howell and finished up a little Trade with him. Gave him enough Supplies so he can actually, you know, leave his Lab and head towards Civilization. Or whatever it's called now. No clue if he'll be able to keep speaking with us for the time being, I did tell him to search for a small backup generator though he can take with him in his new wheelbarrow. Maybe he's also smart enough to take his Ham Radio with him, who knows. On another note, I'm heading west now. Alice left, she decided to stay with a group of Survivors who started a town, and I don't blame her, but personally I prefer staying on the move. Maybe we'll be able to meet up, More people usually means safety. I also have a spare bed and a working shower and toilet in my...let's just call it a reinforced RV.

Sorry about that. Damn civvies piggybacking on my frequency. Disregard what he told you. This is Gunnery Sergeant Frost of...I don't even know what battalion company I'm assigned to. The chain of command went to shit when the dead started walking. *clears throat* In any case, I'm all that's left of the US army in the immediate area - that I know of, at least. The last order I was given before the brass got eaten was to deliver a nuclear payload - on foot - to various points in the subway system, causing the city to turn into a gigantic sinkhole. New York city, by the way. So get away from the city. Anything within a 3-mIle radius of the city limits will be disintegrated, and I'm not sure how far the radiation goes.

Slight static, as well as the sound of someone eating something...crunchy? Then, a familiar voice chimes in.

Heya! Is it just me or do we have a lot of english gentleman here? Apparently you have to be english to survive the apocalypse for longer, huh.

Noire clears their throat and chuckles.

Maybe it's the Tea that helps with the survival. Who knows. Mine should be done in...a few minutes too, at least I hope so. Found, by pure accident, some wild herbs which can make a decent tea, if I can trust one of my books. So, you seem to be quite well, yes, Howell? I hope the Tea I gave you is to your liking.

More crunchy eating, then a sigh and a mumbled "I should bake more often..." before Noire returns to the Ham Radio.

So, 20 tons you say? Sounds like you took over a Truck. Probably reinforced it too, I'd wager? Yes, probably, some of those...things are quite capable of cutting through thin metal. Or punching through it. Well, let's say you're not the only one with a vehicle of that sorts. Back then, when I met up with Howell, my vehicle probably weighed in about 15 to 20 tons as well. Nowadays...Probably more like 40 tons. Good thing it's on Tank treads, I don't think there would be enough wheels to move this monster of a vehicle. Even found some Paint and Spray Cans, so now it's a stylish black. Even named it, it's called Andraste. I also considered naming it Wōđanaz, Þunraz or Teiwaz.

Static, then a confused Noire.

Numbers? Old Man, are you ok?

a drawn out hmmmm escapes Noires Mouth, then an "Aha!"

It must be some kind of Code! Morsecode is out of the question, unless they really changed it. Let's see, what were the numbers?

Rustling Paper is heard

What was it? 8, 21, 13, 1, 14 ; then a pause and some more numbers, 13, 5, 1...crap, don't remember the last few numbers. Anyways, let's see here...do the numbers correspond to the Alphabet...H...U...MA...N...Human, and the other one is...M,  E, A... Mea... Mean? Meal? Meat? Ugh, anyone caught the last few numbers, so we can complete the Message? Sounds definitely odd, might be woth investigating.

The roar continues.

"I am a man wiv ter much time on 'is 'ands! I've built a 20+ tonne machine wiv enuff supplies stawerd ter create a large army!"
Static.
"Goodness! Well, you seem well-supplied!"

Slight static, as well as the sound of someone eating something...crunchy? Then, a familiar voice chimes in.

Heya! Is it just me or do we have a lot of english gentleman here? Apparently you have to be english to survive the apocalypse for longer, huh.

Noire clears their throat and chuckles.

Maybe it's the Tea that helps with the survival. Who knows. Mine should be done in...a few minutes too, at least I hope so. Found, by pure accident, some wild herbs which can make a decent tea, if I can trust one of my books. So, you seem to be quite well, yes, Howell? I hope the Tea I gave you is to your liking.

More crunchy eating, then a sigh and a mumbled "I should bake more often..." before Noire returns to the Ham Radio.

So, 20 tons you say? Sounds like you took over a Truck. Probably reinforced it too, I'd wager? Yes, probably, some of those...things are quite capable of cutting through thin metal. Or punching through it. Well, let's say you're not the only one with a vehicle of that sorts. Back then, when I met up with Howell, my vehicle probably weighed in about 15 to 20 tons as well. Nowadays...Probably more like 40 tons. Good thing it's on Tank treads, I don't think there would be enough wheels to move this monster of a vehicle. Even found some Paint and Spray Cans, so now it's a stylish black. Even named it, it's called Andraste. I also considered naming it Wōđanaz, Þunraz or Teiwaz.
Slight static. "Oh, hello, Noire! Been a while since we talked, it seems! About the tea, it's not half bad, actually. This signal seems to be swarming, so far! Hahaha!"

Lots of static is heard along with what sounds like metal banging on wood, a monotone older male voice then speaks

"eight, twenty one , thirteen, one, fourteen"

slight pause with static

"thirteen, five, one, twenty"

more static and the voice becomes a bit faint to hear

"eight, five , eighteen, five........

more static with what sounds like some scratching is heard, a older male voice speaks
"end"

A bit more static than usual.
"What the bloody hell?"

Post by: Kadian on December 23, 2016, 04:38:20 PM

Just that i basically decrypted that thing in a matter of minutes. I would just need the last few numbers, so we could make sense of it all. oh, uhm, to your question: In the past I loved a good ol' cup of Earl Grey, or in general black teas. Nowadays I take basically everything if it tastes good enough. You know, Cataclysm and all. By the way, this herbal tea I'm brewing? Not that bad actually. Had to put in quite a bit of sugar though. I wonder how long it will stay fresh though.

A newer, more festive crackle joins the frequency.

It plays cheerful, stock music. Bells ring and a choir sings.

It goes silent, as if the DJ is about to speak.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! an automated message. It repeats, twice.

On the third, screams erupt from the distance. The studio seems to be filled with voices. Snarling, hungry voices.
It cuts back to scheduled music. Somewhere, a DJ is rolling over in his grave, or perhaps in a rotting coffin of undead flesh at the thought of a poorly executed radio transition.

Somewhere, sometime before shit hit the fan, Marvin Gaye sung about wanting to come home for Christmas and seeing that little Christmas tree again. That song is playing on the frequency right now.

(Not sure if anyone is still interested in this. Thread’s not that old so I figured I’d give it a shot; might breath some small amount of life into it if nothing else!)

The radio crackles to life. After a few moments of relative silence, a soft, somewhat soothing voice begins to speak. It sounds quite feminine.

“Hello. Over the past few weeks I’ve been attempting to get this radio station in working order. I’m, uh… I’m not really certain how this works, but this message should be amplified significantly if I did things right. Right, then. I’ve obtained a significant supply of medicine from a nearby hospital. I am trained in and have experience administering first aid. If you are in need of supplies or assistance-- Or just want to make idle chatter, contact me on this frequency. I carry a two-way radio on my person at all times. Call me AURORA. This message will repeat." Hopefully…

"aye there Aurora, i'm currently set up in a public works spot, got enough perishables and non perishables to last me at least a month, and i'm good on drinks thanks to my two funnels, i'm even working on a fire engine trying to pimp it out using parts i've found nearby, Oussama out

The background was silent except for a bit of static.

"'Allo AURORA, names Alex. It's ni-"

Before he could finish, the sound of a rifle can be heard followed by inhuman gurgaling also followed by a scream. The transmission cuts off after a few laser bolts are heard.

The radio crackles to life once again. The sound quality has deteriorated significantly since the original transmission; it's likely that "Aurora" has transitioned from the professional radio station to a more portable means of communication.

"Glad to meet you as well. Be safe."

She paused, listening to Oussama's message.

"I see. Good luck with that. Some of the public works I've passed by have been really defensible. Sounds like a good location to be. I'm at some old mansion just out of a town right now. It's got a few greenhouses which I am utilizing to grow edibles. Right now my priority is to set up some solar panels just outside and wall them in w-"

The transmission cuts out briefly. A distinct slashing sound can be heard, along with the gruesome, if distorted sound of flesh being ripped apart. The transmission quickly cuts back.

"Sorry about that. There's still a few stragglers out here. Regardless, I hope that work on the fire truck goes well. I've been tinkering with a vehicle as well, but I'm running out of suitable adhesive. I've got a welder that'd work, but right now power isn't exactly something I can use in such a... lavish manner. That's why I need to set up that little installation. Oh, by the way, I've picked up a few books on mechanics. It was never really my forte but I'm coming to understand it. Let me know if I can help with that project. Or any first aid, for that matter. I can walk you through some of that stuff, assuming you're, uhm, not-dying enough to talk."

She stops for a while, listening to Alex's transmission. She begins once more.

"Godspeed."

Got 4 of them in close proximity but the rest are full with zeds.In fact I can see a horde ...a preaty big one ,I might need to move..."

"Sh*t, been a while since I managed to get a signal up, my plane got shot down somewhere near the Canadian-american border. I guess It's own foot from here on out. As far as I can tell Canada isn't much better than america, there are still zombies. But there are more survivors. I think the low population density, and freezing cold helped lower zombie population. Unfortunately contrary to stereotypes, not all Canadians are nice. At least there are plenty of hunting rifles here. And moose. You never realizing how terrifying these are until you are in the Canada. "

This transmission is quite clear, and almost completely devoid of static. Clearly, whoever's broadcasting this knows what they're doing.

"Hello everyone. My name is... Well, I can't really tell you my name. Not that it matters, really."

The voice is that of a man, and sounds tired and weary. A faint echo can be heard in the background.

"I... don't know how long I've been down here. It's been a long time since I've seen or heard someone else... A long time..."

"I've managed to get a transmitter up and running with some of the equipment down here. Tons of supplies, even more tools. So much stuff... No one to share it with..."

The voice trails off into silence before muttering some unintelligible things. Despite the quality of the transmission, it's impossible to tell what he's saying.

"I... I still have the book. I'm afraid. I'm afraid to read it. But I must."

There is a pause for a moment, and in the silence the sound of running water can be heard in the background.

"Is... Is anyone listening? Am I... Am I truly alone down here?"

In comes a nearly static-free signal that strangely is was on the same frequency as the cockney guy, though the quiet voice is of a young female.

"H-Hello?"
