  • The MEC Squad goes north-west, and finds a settlement in the Wasteland. Joan, Purry and Arvid enters it, and finds out that the settlement is named Distress City and has 22 inhabitants.

The mayor of Distress City, Timonthy, gave them full permission to use the settlement in return for the tools and five bullets.
  • In Distress City, Will went to talk to the merchant of the town, to figure out if they could go with him next time he were to go out. They were able to do so, in exchange of protection.

Day 2Edit

  • The two guards of The Manor enter the lobby and inform the residents that they have been ordered to kill one newcomer every two days. One of the guards, Hank, threatens to kill Lester, though Brad steps in. Brad is then killed instead.

  • Searching for a way out, Nuno takes apart one of the bathrooms, making a huge mess in the process. Nuno, Per, Alfred and Arthur begins to look for a way out through the sewers. They do find a manhole, though a lock is keeping it in place. Per manages to break it with his machete, thus giving them a way to enter the sewers.

The slavers take Wesley, Ahsan, James and Muhammad.

Here, Nicholas and Nathaniel are knocked down too, after trying to help up Mahianne. A snake kills Mahianne, giving Seraphina, Nicholas and Nathaniel time to get up. In the water, Nathaniel is stabbed by a syringe, possibly making him sick.
  • Looking through the sewers, the people of The Manor find a pipe leading outside, though it is barred. They also find a camp, proving that someone lives in the sewers.

In a museum, they find a sword and a machete, and searching a gift shop they also find several other supplies. During most of their time there, they hear a helicopter, but never see it. They make it back to the scenic outpost, and spend another night there, waiting for The MEC Squad to pick them up.

Day 11Edit

  • The MEC Squad is still on the way to Barbados, with a helmsman who doesn’t speak English.

Day 12Edit

  • The boat with ‘’The MEC Squad’’ arrive at Barbados. Khent prepares a rescue boat, as the people in the cave swim out of it and back onto the beach. A helicopter arrive, ordering them to surrender, which they refuse to do. As the rescue boat carrying Will, Khent and Arvid, sails towards the shore they try to shoot down the helicopter, but without success. A car full of soldiers then arrive, and as the group try to surrender, Per decides to open fire. This causes Noah and Ricardo to be shot, but the group manage to kill several soldiers. A soldier with a rocket launcher appear though, and as he shoots it, Jauhar forces it off course, but this only gets himself and Jim killed. Nuno, Nathaniel, Will, Arvid, Khent, Per and Bilal are all in the boat and headed towards the boat in which Joan is in. Joan accidentally broke the boat, but easily managed to fix it. While sailing to the boat, Will manages to shoot down the helicopter by shooting the pilot with a sniper. The soldiers on the shore are shooting on the people in the boat though, and eventually shoot Arvid and the rescue boat. Falling into the water, bleeding, Arvid is then spotted by sharks, who quickly devour him. The remaining survivors then swim towards the boat and is helped up by Joan. Khent luckily had picked up on how Ricardo sailed the boat, and manages to get them away.
