Shooting the Head (StM)

Post #: 49
Megan wanted a totally unromantic Shooting the Moon, and we went with the Capitol Hill Zombopocalypse.

The Beloved: Ali Smith (Megan), doctor and guardian of postapocalyptic daycare
Well-equipped, Reluctant Leader, Scientific Genius, Altruistic, Witty, Strong-Stomached
Opportunity: Running low on medical supplies - who gets the last dose of anti-zombie vaccine?
Obstacle: Factionalism.
Dream: Clear the zombies from Virginia Mason and set up a vaccine-production lab.

Suitor 1: Buck (Mo)
Inspiring but cowardly, selfish but guilty, logical but insensitive
Buck was a Ruthless Ambition type, aiming to unite the warring bands of Capitol Hill against the real threat - those suit-and-tie Downtown assholes. For him, the vaccine was important as much because it would be a signal that he was indispensable to the community.
Conflict: Megalomania.

Suitor 2: Coates (Sam)
Loner but Needy, Generous but Keeps Score, Emotional but Self-Controlled
Coates was an urban-explorer/scavenger, increasingly dissatisfied with the increasingly political social order. His long-term plan was to take his little sister Jenny and go to make a living off the land around Mt. Rainier, but to survive alone he'd need the vaccine.
Conflict: Contrarian.

This suffered a bit from the common StM problem of the Suitors being explicit, out-and-out rivals in every sphere of life; I think StM's more insteresting when the Suitors have some incentive to cooperate some of the time.

Actual zombies: very much out of the spotlight. Which was fine with me.

Megan won nearly all of her rolls, and departed on the Helicopter to Elsewhere (with Jenny in tow, natch.)
