Friends of the Resistance,
By now you have no doubt witnessed the effects of the virus on your friends and fellow students. It is apparent that the virus is bloodborne and is generally transmitted via a bite. However, we need more information about this disease before we have any hope of defending against it.
Thankfully, good news has arrived in the form of Dr. Enrique Miolos, a researcher from Mozombique who has spent the past decade studying viruses of this form. We are very fortunate that Professor Miolos has spent the past semester working here with the CWRU Department of Pathology, and has agreed to share his research data with the Resistance.
Unfortunately, Professor Miolos is very protective of his data, so as a security measure he has partitioned it into three floppy disks and hidden them around campus. He refuses to reveal their location unless he himself can be present to retrieve them. You must cooperate with his requests; he is very particular about his needs.
Please meet Dr. Miolos in front of his lab in Bingham by 8:00pm tonight and protect him as he retrieves the data.
Please note that the Professor is a disabled person who uses a wheelchair. Do not for any reason attempt to push the wheelchair for him. Retrieve the disks and bring all three back to Bingham within one hour.
You have one hour to find and retrieve the three floppy disks hidden around campus and return them to the Bingham front steps.
- Each 3.5" floppy diskette will be inside a plastic sandwich bag and accompanied by a glowstick. This time, there will not be an admin present; you’ll have to follow Dr. Miolos.
- Dr. Miolos (played by an administrator) will not reveal the location of each disk until he has brought you there. You may search for them yourselves, but do not attempt to extract information from him—just follow his lead!
- The Professor is wheelchair-bound. For safety reasons, DO NOT touch the wheelchair. The admin must be allowed to move under his own power and at his own pace.
- No one may transport the floppies except Professor Miolos, as long as he is alive.
- If Miolos is killed by the Horde, the mission is not over. You must find the disks and complete the mission without him, but you will not have any information as to their locations.
Keep the humans from finding the objectives and returning them to Bingham Building.
- You may not move the floppy disks, but you can camp them if you find them.
- You may tag Professor Miolos. When doing so, be careful not to bowl into the wheelchair. Tagging the wheelchair counts as a tag, but safety always comes first! Reach for the handles or the back, not the wheels. If you can’t safely make a tag, don’t go for it.
- Stun timers will be determined and announced at the beginning of every mission.
- Zombies will start at KSL Oval. Meet there about 10 minutes early to sign in with an admin.
- Humans will start at Bingham Building. Meet there about 10 minutes early to sign in with an admin.
- The Main Quad (between Van Horn Field, MLK, Adelbert, and Euclid) and Mather (between East Boulevard, Ford, and Euclid) are in-bounds for this mission. The floppy disks may be hidden anywhere within these boundaries.
- Do NOT run across Euclid. Anyone traveling across Euclid is safe and should be given a wide berth upon arrival on the other side. Wait for the WALK signal before crossing.
- Grace Period: 7:30 PM
- Mission Start: 8:00 PM
- Mission Length: 1 hour
- There will be a brief grace period at the conclusion of the mission as well.
- Human Win: Vital information about the next Mission, and the Horde is not fed.
- Zombie Win: Reduced stun timers on Friday and a Horde-wide feed.
- Remember that during each Mission this semester there will be an administrator in the role of Super Zombie. He can tag anyone as usual, removing them from the mission.
- The Super Zombie is immune to all weapons except the one designated Nerf Rocket Launcher (obtainable from a hidden admin somewhere on the field of play).
Remember that Mission attendance is a crucial part of our game, so come on out—students, staff, and faculty alike. I’m looking at you, Dr. Kenney.
All attending players will receive a point bonus for the Mission, and the winning attendees will receive even more points. Remember, however, that the points don’t matter. That’s right, the points are like the seasons this year.
