Atomic Highway RPG - Smokes's Journal #4

We found our way to an old, apparently abandoned military base. After busting through an electrified fence, we found a locomotive and a Humvee. Oh yeah! Ditch that hand cart! We killed a couple of mutated dogs... weird. Also, there are these drones flying around harassing us. When we put on military clothes they seem to leave us alone. Ace found a couple of fighter jets. He used (and destroyed) one to send six missiles the Baron's way. He tried to do the same to what we believe to be Lord Awesome's camp, but was chased off by incoming surface-to-air missiles. Apparently, this Lord Awesome has some serious tech.

Atomic Highway RPG - Smokes's Journal #3

Upon returning to Rugby, I got to meet the Baron. He's got a savior complex, to be sure. He's sending me and these other guys out on a scouting mission to find Lord Awesome's base of operations. I'm hoping that Lord Awesome and the Baron wipe each other out, saving me some trouble. The Baron, in his "wisdom" sent us on a railroad track with a hand cart.
We set off, traveling a shattering (and backbreaking) 10 mph, stopping to loot as we go. So far, worst trip ever.
Nevermind. It just got worse. Gopher just blew up a silo I WAS CLIMBING ON. I hate that idiot.

Atomic Highway RPG - Smokes's Journal #2

After watching a battle van kill the men we were sent to find, encountered two guys named Ash and Buford. Dougie stole our dune buggie and, of course, Ace stole Ash's motorcycle to go after him. One crashed motorcycle later and we're walking after our stolen car. Sigh.
We arrived at the "church" where Dougie lives with the "reverend" and his "children." Basically a religious communist community. They forced us to swim in a lake to be "baptized" and then let us take the car back (plus a truck.)
Buford shared that while at the church he made radio contact with Lord Awesome. This is the man responsible for the deaths of my wife and children. Vengeance burns in my heart.
Returning to Rugby, the Baron was pleased with the information we brought back. He sent us back on a mission to find Lord Awesome's base. I think, instead, we'll try to pit Lord Awesome against the Baron. Maybe they can kill each other and save us a big headache.
