When Cliff City fell to the ghouls, the population panicked and fled with the zombie hoard hot on their heels. A group of heroic citizens took it upon themselves to leave Zack trapped within the city. Cliff City is riddled with canals that fill in the rainy season, and pedestrian footbridges lead over them. A few well placed blasting caps were set off, destroying the bridges and trapping the ravenous zombies within the city.
Some camps were constructed on the outskirts of the city, which provided surprising protected from the dead and criminals. But when supplies run low, a young, able-bodied man or woman is chosen to venture deep into the necropolis of cement and steel to scavenge what they can. A ramshackle bridge of wood and steel can be lowered over the canals to let people in.
This week, a man name Thomas was the unlucky one to be chosen to scavenge. After plundering a grocery store, he was looking for the book store to pick up some fresh literary material when he ran straight into a party of ghouls. Raiders are unarmed, the logic being that guns are hard to come by, and it isn't worth it to someone on a job with a high risk of death.
Parts of the old bridge are visible in the dry canal bed, along with a skeleton of a zombie that wandered off.
The bridge is almost down, can he make it?
The tattered gray flag signifies that there is a guard on duty, watching out for packs of zacks or even survivors who didn't make it out of the city.
The telephone wires don't work, but refugees plan to repair them once the city is back under human control.
I really like to see well designed MOCs combined with action and suspense. You've captured these elements nicely in this bridge scene. I like the lamp post and the zombie adding to the nice detail. Great job!
