The campaign takes place in the UK after the films 28 Decisions / 28 Days Later. The timeline is more akin to 28 Months Later in real time.
Scenario 1A: Synopsis: Two years and four months after the outbreak of the Rage Virus that infected the majority of Great Britain, many cities and towns are declared safe and the British survivors have now returned. Many towns and cities are set up as armoured satellite refuges, as a repopulation of the country begins.
The town of Middleriver (pop 142,691) is one such satellite refuge, and has been established now for seven months, under local control. This evening though, the infected have infiltrated the town via the sewage works
Slightly perturbing is the fact that the perimeter alarms were not triggered – but the situation should be controllable with current resources. More disturbingly, a group of anarchists have claimed responsibility for this, and are now inciting a riot in the central part of the city. Your role as the Major Incident Plan Governing Body ‘Gold Command’ , is to bring the town under control :
Gold Command consists of : Chief Constable Sylvia Bennett Brigadier Arthur Lloyd-Hynes Chief Medical Officer Patricia Fullerton Chief Fire OfficerClarence Gerard Council Chief Executive Jonathan Heron Elected M.P. for Middleriver, Patrick Kale
Your superiors are watching…..
