'So Shiny, So Chrome' takes place 13 years after The Fall, a combination of the Oil Wars that came to a climax with a nuclear event. Our setting is the Wasteland, once the Australian outback. Wildlife mutated by radiation prowls the wasteland; weather is harsh and highly unpredictable; roving gangs of survivors fight for what remains of precious resources.
What a day, what a lovely day.
----- Season: Winter Weather: Days 8°C/Nights -10°C
Winter has descended once again on the Wasteland as merciless as ever. Days are cold, and with little cover the high winds are all the more biting; even without snow, hypothermia and frostbite are a constant threat. The only relief is that many of the Wasteland's creatures are in hibernation.

Well, Not much to say here that isn't in my character app as to how he interacts...
First plot I'd like to do is actually how Fergal finds himself among the Anzacs. So far All Ive got is him low on water and food, finding the canyon, notices the guards and makes assumption that there are supplies present, concocts plan to steal some. Not knowing that there are actually marines present, he wildly underestemates them, thinking that with his skill and experience in the legion will enable him to sneak around then in. Someone notices him then confrontation. Or something. I'm easy going so suggestions are welcome
I'm game- for the sake of giving him a shot, maybe he tries to sneak in on a new-moon night when it's extra dark. Still gets detected of course, but it'd give us a chance to show the Anzacs flexing their military muscle a bit. If Charlie and Hex are on board, I'd love to also bring the other Anzacs into it.

I'll need a rough layout, I know the spring is in the cave, are the crops outside with a piping system brining them water, or is there a internal chamber open to the sky (Like in that book The Host). And do the Anzacs have NVGs?
Jumping in to say that yes, I'll join. But you probably don't want Nate on sentry duty. At the very best, I think he'd probably shoot to injure (if not to kill). But other than that, sure I'll join whatever you come up with.

Feel free to shoot, Fergal is still wearing his Spectra armour, which while heavy and bulky provides amazing protection . So definitely going to climb down the canyon wall and will try dig up a few potatoes or carrots from the farm, plus refill canteens at irrigation pipe rather than try and find spring. Though you might catch him before he ever reaches the crops....
ETA: And Nate is a sniper. He's not going to go for the centre of mass shot. :P
Yeah, but there aren't many places on the human body that you can shoot that aren't going to be fatal, especially with a high-powered rifle. And a hand or foot is way too small of a target to realistically hit, even for a sniper.
Warning shots could work though
