The zombie plague continues to spread on the colony world Arturo. 3 small groups of survivors have converged on an outlying landing field. Together, they have formulated an escape plan.

|Wilderness survivors prepare for action.|
|Nav charts and supplies are located near the IMEC cargo lifter.|
The wilderness survivors make the first move. Rummaging in the shacks they find some blankets. It's not much but they might come in useful. They decide that their safest approach route is over the rocky outcrop between them and the settlement. This will avoid various zombies lurking in the woods and will give them a good view across the settlement and landing field. Tying the blankets around their bodies, they prepare for the climb.
The IMEC team strike out from their cargo lifter towards the other spacecraft, pausing only to gun down a nearby group of zombies. There seem to be few zombies on this side of the landing field.
|IMEC crew members dash to recover them.|
Other than the zombies which heard the gunshots and are moving towards the townsfolk, the undead lurch and shamble randomly around the area.
It looks like the townsfolk have misjudged the situation. As they reach the ground floor, zombies burst in through the doorway, threatening to overwhelm them.
