Previous Endeavors and Exploits of The Rambling Drunk

Sept 23rd, 2006

TRD founder and leader ManliestMan is stocking up at an undisclosed location to prepare for a foray into Ridleybank to support the Blackmore Bastard Brigade (and drink their supposed miraculous mead), hopefully gathering some new recruits along the way.

Sept 27th, 2006

ManliestMan, our ever fearless and ever inebriated leader, has reportedly arrived in the Blackmore Building, helping the Bastards inside. If preliminary reports are to be believed, the mead is excellent.

Sept 30th, 2006

Praised be Odin! It appears Billy Rodeo, ever fearless fireman of the brew has finally managed to get his lungs working again and is now alive outside Blackmore.

Oct 8th, 2006

Faced with severe casualties, ManliestMan has had no choice but to call for the immediate withdrawal of all TRD members from the Greater Blackmore Area to a privately disclosed rally point. From what we have learned, their battle was glorious and the mead was excellent.

Oct 19th, 2006

Phase One of our Master Plan of Inebriation has come into effect, and simultaeniously our membership has almost doubled! Once again we remind all our members to sign up for the forum so we can invite you all to a round of drinks on us!

Nov 29th, 2006

For a month and nearly two weeks we have battled on, fighting boredom, sobriety and the occasional zombie in our quest for an HQ to be founded. Now, it stands, upon the hallowed 'burb of Barrville, the Membery Arms, a shining beacon of drunkenness everywhere. It is indeed glorious.

Nov 30th, 2006

In a move thought suicidal by some of our closest allies, we have kept the light shining in Barrville overnight and now for 24 hours. Such is proof that devotion to the gods of booze leads one to the truth and invulnerability...as well as a damn good drink.

Dec 23rd, 2006

With Booze-Mas right around the corner and spirits at an all time high, TRD continues its festivities in the Membery Arms. Planning for Phase Two is underway as well.

Jan 1st, 2007

Following a most wonderful New Years party complete with drunken singing, ManliestMan has declared Phase One a success, and is now declaring it over and done with. Phase Two begins soon.

Jan 3rd, 2007

Following the commencement of Phase Two TRD has split its member base into two separate groups, each tasked with a different part of Phase Two. Although in their first hours, Viking Ramrod Squad and The Skeleton Crew appear ready to do their duties.

Jan 20th, 2007

Much to ManliestMan's disappointment the numbers of zombies in Malton has fallen greatly. As such, what once seemed to be a plan that would guarantee Glorious Battle has turned into little other than sitting around hoping zombies come to visit once in a while. However, the lust for battle flows in the blood of every member of TRD, and as such, it will soon have to be satisfied.

Jan 24th, 2007

A large swarm of zerging zeds have overrun both the area surrounding the Membery and the Radnedge outpost. It seems it is only a matter of time until they smash into the Membery. We stand ready, guns loaded. Commend our souls to Odin, there is glorious battle to be had!!!

  • Update (Jan 24th, 2007): Allies are arriving on the scene and are helping with the survival effort! May these zeds know our holy wrath!!!
  • Update (Jan 25th, 2007): The zerging zeds have bust in and now many of us lay slain. Hopefully we can get a revive. To more glorious battle!!!
  • Update (Jan 26th, 2007): We once more control our glorious bar and wage glorious battle on our not so glorious invaders.

Feb 2nd, 2007

All is well again in our glorious bar. The zombies are out, and the drinks doth flow. Not even the wrath of a zerg horde can remove us from our place of drinking! TO GLORIOUS BATTLE!!!

April 2nd, 2007

Despite little excitement over the previous two months, TRD continues to labor away in the Fortress of Inebriation, keeping the zombies out and the booze in. Maintaining the safest spot in Barrville is now somewhat of an obsession, and the valiant Drunks maintain it with stoic pride.

April 17th, 2007

No sooner had the valiant drunkards or TRD settled in for an extended nap when a most diabolical zombie horde laid siege to their glorious drinking establishment. Caught off guard initially, the drunks were driven from their bar, but returned shortly packing multitudes of ammo. Retaking their bar in a barrage of bullets and odd battle cries, the battle soon spread to the entire fortress, with both the Necrotech and bar under siege. Now the drunks fight on, knee deep in blood and booze, hacking forth with axes and letting fly the bullets of glorious battle!

April 24th, 2007

The bar remains drunk filled, and a kind gent has bestowed upon us a "stuffed crocodile". This is glorious...now we fight for our bar, our booze...and our STUFFED CROCODILE!!!

May 1st, 2007

The bar, ransacked over the previous week is now very much in the hands of the valiant Drunks. However, there was one of us who didn't make it through the ransack. RIP Mr. Croc, the littlest Rambling Drunk. He will be in our hearts forever. From now on every kill is for Mr. Croc, and no zombie shall be left standing or beer left filled as long as his name is invoked!

May 17th, 2007

With the Fortress safely in the control of the Drunks again and the zeds appearing to have been beaten back, TRD has once more put on a surge to reclaim all the bars in the suburb. PHASE TWO LIVES AGAIN!

June 18th, 2007

Following their suppression of the zombie attack on the Membery Arms both ManliestMan and Captain Ned decided that they had had enough of this conflict, and should retire to drinking the night away. Leaving the command of the Drunks in the capable hands of Barroom Hero they retired from active combat and returned to their true love...Booze!

June 17th, 2007

In less than three full days The Rambling Drunks have retaken their precious bar and hold it against all comers. When you fight the Drunks, you're fighting out of your league! Our unstoppable drunken rampages have bested the zombies of the Ridleybank Resistance Front once more!

June 14th, 2007

Following a recent surge in zombie activity the Membery Arms has fallen to the zombies of the Ridleybank Resistance Front. The Rambling Drunks fight on however, and vow to retake their bar no matter the cost.

The Rambling Drunks have embarked upon a journey to discover all the good brew that Malton can offer. McCloud's in Havercroft is the first stop on the crawl.

July 5th, 2007

Faced with zombie siege it appears our planned trip to Biertag has been put on holds. Hopefully some of our Fearless Members will be able to make the pilgrimage to St. Arnold's Church of Rolt Heights in order to represent us.

July 12th, 2007

Most of The Rambling Drunks have returned from the journey to Biertag and have assisted in the retaking of the Fortress of Inebriation. Thanks to the The Burchell Arms Regulars for being such wonderful hosts.

November 3rd, 2008

In the midst of the Zed onslaught, the drunks and playboys professed drunkenness to be the better part of valor and went on an almighty pub crawl. However, I RichTee the fearless leader have gone on a date, yes that's right, a date. Reid's in charge until my return.

April 3rd, 2008

I take it upon my drunken shoulders to tentatively accept the glorious dizzy drunken heights of new 'Fearless Leader' of the Ramblers. However, we need more drunks. A recruitment drive is in order. RichTee

March 10th, 2008

With Barrville in a ruined state, the Drunks have been brought to their knees by someting other than bad moonshine. I've been touring the fews pubs left in the south of Malton and have not seen a fellow drunk for weeks it seems. Right, I'm off to the Membery, single handed if need be, WTF, a drunks gotta do what a drunks gotta do. RichTee

January 31st, 2008 part:2

While our numbers may have been whittled, the Membery is in good shape. With the aid of the Craske IPB our numbers are bolstered. The cold weather also means Goms not kicking up to much of a stink if placed next to the drafty cades. We even have a full stock of G!Ns, Ales and other assorted booze. And a few cocktail umbrellas too....no cherries mind.

January 31st, 2008

Well....we are the leaderless legless......I shall take it upon myself to keep all shins sacred an...an....drunk like unto ush ramblers.....

January 5th, 2008

"A Drink A Day Keeps Them Zombies Away, Or So They Say"

"The Rambling Drunks, Breakdancing for Jesus"

A group with the sole intent of spending their last days on earth drowning their crushing depression with an epic bar crawl, the tales of which will be told for years to come. Led by ex-Police Officer ManliestMan who likes nothing more than a good drink, the group moves from bar to club to mall liquor store to bar again, seeking nothing but a tall, cold one to sooth their frayed nerves. Drawing in new followers with the lure of a damn good drink, the group someday hopes to achieve it's goal in sampling all of the fine, alcoholic beverages across the city of Malton.

History

ManliestMan, a private sent into Malton in one of the clean-up crews, was quickly separated from his squad and was trapped alone deep in the heart of Malton. After finding some success and safety initially with the Dunell Hills Police Department and rising to the rank of detective he was overjoyed to find one of his old comrades and drinking buddies Billy Rodeo in a bar while on a routine patrol. After much talk of old times the pair decided that if this would be their final days then perhaps they should enjoy them, and live a little. Soon they had decided and plotted a route for the greatest bar crawl ever seen on earth, and spent the next few days preparing for this journey which undeniably would be their last. Currently they are looking for others to join them on this trip, as everyone knows drinking with friends is more fun than drinking alone.

Goals and Philosophy

In accordance with ManliestMan's "Master Plan of Inebriation", the two of them will tour the city of Malton, from watering hole to watering hole, sampling all the liquor the area has to offer them. Nothing short of the wrath of god will deter them from their goal, be it zombies, barricades or even other survivors who stand in their way. Although the group does not not encourage random murders, anyone found to be preventing a member from fulfilling his god given right to drink his fill of any alcoholic beverage available in the location will be killed, or at the very least, fired on.

When a member of TRD gains access to a location where they know alcohol is present, that member is expected to search throughout the rubble until such things can be found. After such liquor is discovered, the member is expected to drink his fill, hopefully flushing away the depression and fear caused by the zombie outbreak. In between drinking binges members are free to do whatever it is they wish, although fighting towards the next bar is preferable.

Additionally, any member of TRD that's conversing with others should be reminded about the speech impediment often caused by drinking, namely:

Martini.jpg Sobriety
We is currently so drunk, we can't use grammar

As such, any member of TRD is encouraged to slur, stutter, or ramble his way through any important information they see fit to mention. Vomiting Optional.
