We decided to hightail it out of the old military base, but not before rounding up some tools, taking a few extra railcars for the train, and destroying some key buildings and the fighter jet so they don't fall into Lord Awesome's hands. Dawdled just a little bit too long and were caught by one of Lord Awesome's scouting patrols. We scared them off and then followed the rails, looking for a way away from Lord Awesome to the East or South. It seems it wasn't meant to be, however. After a run in with some mutates in Grand Forks, we found all other rails to be impassable as Lord Awesome's compound loomed larger and larger. Great. I hate killing.
