Where: Pleasantdale Players
When: Three days after the Founder's Day incident
Who: Katie, OT Quentin, Joseph

Katherine was reasonably hopeful that she'd be able to catch 'Captain Mystery' at the theater in his off hours. While most blushing schoolgirls had need of 'Captain Mystery' for reasons of the flesh, her interest in finding him, or that nice man Joseph she'd met at Founder's Day, was much less carnal and much more pragmatic. She needed someone who could identify a clever ruse or act from a display of honesty, and if anyone would know about putting on masks and hiding your true intentions, it would have to be an actor.

She and Chester were still angry at each other, and as such she came alone; considering what he'd said and done after she brought up the idea of investigating the hospital, she wasn't interested in being on the receiving end of his anger if she presented another idea in front of him that upstaged his need to feel clever. Besides, it was nice to dress up and feel pretty and not think about how bad things were right now.

Now, where to find them...

Summary: Two days after the Founder's Day disaster, characters are at Fred's shooting range for weapons practice. A stranger comes out of the woods, claiming to be a stranded New Yorker named Bob. Bob's story quickly fell apart when Vito confronted him and asked him for actual New York facts. Bob confessed to be a Russian who had been stationed in town with his group, spying on an American base located in the warehouse district. This is the first that anyone ever heard of there being a base in town. Russian Bob claims that Pleasantdale is an American government test town, and that is why his group was stationed here. Furthermore, he told a disturbing tale of the communist base being invaded by American soldiers who were dead-not-dead. Many in his group died, and some came back... not right. 'Bob' thought it was best to get the heck out of there, and had been surviving in the woods since.

Chester wanted to turn the commie over to authorities, but the group managed to convince him to keep Bob with them instead. Mr. Chow, who has experience with commie fighting after all, volunteered to take Bob to his house.

Katie hatched a plan to go to the hospital to find out about those injured on Founder's Day, under the guise of adults chaperoning high school kids to do a report on the tragedy. This angered Chester, primarily because it wasn't his idea, and just when did women start thinking anyhow?

New Plot Points:
How much truth is in what Russian Bob claims?

Did the zombie crisis really start with the American soldiers?

Is Pleasantdale a 'test town', and if so, what sort of experiment is the government running?
