It was one of those coincidences: Preserver leader Madame Curie, her grenade-throwing colleague Doctor Quark, two robots and a couple of diggers decide to scavenge for supplies at a former highway truck-top in the wastelands, only to encounter a band of mutants from the Brotherhood of Rem making a rare daylight scavenging foray. The surrounding parched terrain provided only limited cover, making the few buildings—a garage, convenience store, bar, and small warehouse—all the more important.
The mutants suffered from being in sunlight, but one did manage to sight the Preservers’ WKB1 DoB 1167X Depend-o-Bot and disable it with a lucky shot from his submachine gun. Moments later, however, Brother Thompson was blasted with a laser.
Penitent Arghh, the Brotherhood’s frenzied feral mutant, was toasted by Wreck-It-Bot WKB1’s flamethrower. Behind the abandoned garage, the diggers tussled with more mutants, with casualties on both sides. Doctor Quark threw fragmentation grenades at anything that moved—and sometimes blindly over small buildings, just to see what happened. The giant mutant mondo Oblate Urghhh fought hand to hand with WKB1, with the latter eventually triumphing.
So caught up in fighting were the two sides that they forgot to take many pictures (or the mandatory morale test for heavy casualties).
Throughout, scientists Curie and Quark were appropriately cautious about the formidable powers of Archimandrite Geiger, the Brotherhood leader. Quark and WXB1 tried to charge his position, but the huge robot was disabled with a Psychic Bolt from the mutant and a hail of gunfire from his surviving followers.
With that, both sides decided that discretion is the better part of valour, and withdrew.
