Alison propped herself against the wall and nodded, "Captain was right, which is why he is the Captain. What now?"

A brief glance is all it takes to determine the most immediate direction called 'the other way'.  To the right of the door you just exited, you can see the stark contrast of pitch black and glaring brightness.  The cold emptiness of the quarantined zone butts up to the almost infinite light from the base itself.  More or less, you're probably 150-200 yards off.  A tall, rusted chain link fence stands directly in front of you, facing the door, leaving a turn to the left being the only other direction open; it seems to run deeper into the complex.

You are to the south of the base camp crudely drawn on Map 4

Looking around quickly "I suggest we keep moving. I wold prefer not getting a closer look at that thing inside. At least until we have some firepower." Charles heads off to the left keeping a watchful eye on their surroundings.

"Yes, this way... away from the complex. How are you bearing up, Alison?"

Sam set off at a steady lope.

She just nodded in obvious pain.

As predicted, you run deeper into the empty, dilapidated complex.  The alleyway you are in periodically branches left and right in between different buildings in various states of decay.  Some still have windows, though most of the glass is missing.  Several appear to have been left open as their respective doors lie silently open, or are missing all together.

OOC: Any plan as to where you're headed?  Looking for something/someplace in particular?  Just running till you hit a dead end?

Listen for sounds of traffic or anything indicating where folks are at... hopefully this is just a run-down industrial zone not a completely-abandoned city.

The sounds of city life buzz all around you as the echos of honking cars, banging metal and other erroneous noises ricochet off every empty building.  They are, however, somewhat muted, perhaps indicating they are still some distance off.  Then a loud groan breaks through the muddle as a boat horn roars and bellows from somewhere close.

Alison nodded, "I can make it Captain, just point me in the direction you want to go."

Sam headed towards the sound of the boat horn.

My apologies, I wasn't certain which direction or sound you wanted to head towards specifically.

The horn only sounds once, but it is more than loud enough to give you a good idea where it came from.  Cutting through the alleys surrounding the various buildings becomes quite the chore but, if you were being followed, it certainly would have made things very difficult for them.  Pounding the pavement harder and harder as you sprint, you finally break free from the concrete and blacktop to discover a large, broken down wooden dock.  Several piers jut out into the water with broken, rotted boards lying splintered, exposing the cold, dark water below.

Charles skids to a halt behind the others, looking about he muttered. "Well shit, now what?" The older man was breathing pretty heavily but was surprisingly still going.

"Water courses are always good navigational aids," said Sam.

"Let's have a look around and see if we can figure out where we are. Alison, you can perch on that bollard over there and keep lookout."

A large, dark river lies before you stretching up and down the length of the industrial park.  It seems to run directly through the heart of the city and, from your vantage anyway, appears to pass directly by the blackout zone.

Charles looked around for any indication of where the may be but was also looking for a boat or other craft. He kept watching and listening for any sign of whatever that thing was that had been behind them.

"We want to get where other people are..." said Sam.

"Can either of you see a small boat? Or a riverside path we can follow to the living city?"

No boats sit nearby, the closest appearing to be just across the river on the other side.  You could, if you wanted, walk along the waters edge to wherever the industrial park ends.

Alison nodded and limped along with Sam.
