"You're probably right, Arthur.  But I still don't feel good about this.  Stay here, keep people calm.  I'll be right back."  Demarcus slipped away from the main barricade and made his way to a small closet in the corner. 

"Dammit!"

Someone had filled the closet with boxes of supplies.  "Hey, Ryan, come gimmie a hand moving this stuff."  A jumpy college kid put down the pistol he had been cleaning for hours and ran over to start moving the boxes.

"Hey man, what's going on out there? Are we gonna be alright?  Ain't seen the zombies act like this yet!  Did we get the break in under control?  I don't like this, man.  I don't like this at all!"

"Hey, calm down, Ryan.  We've got everything under control, we're gonna be fine.  There, that should be the last box.  I just needed to be able to get to the switch, just in case."

"The switch?  THE SWITCH?  Oh God, this is the closet with the bomb trigger in it!  You said the mines were the last resort!  They're about to break in the chapel, aren't they??  Oh God, no no no no!!"

Before Demarcus could stop him, Ryan shoved him out of the way and dove into the closet.  At the back was was a breaker box.  He ripped the cover off and pulled the extra switch in the corner so hard that it broke off.  There were a few terrible seconds of delay, then several loud explosions could be heard outside.

"Dammit Ryan!"  Demarcus shouted as he pulled him out of the closet and threw him to the ground.  "What the hell were you thinking, you little spaz!! ...wait.  wait a second."

The rhythmic thudding noise outside had been replaced by loud clangs and then something like a roar.  A few seconds later half of the barricade flew apart as the Alpha Sigs charged through it.  Some were armed with empty kegs they had used as battering rams, others carried metal baseball bats.  The people near the barricade scrambled to get out of the way as the armored zombies swung about wildly.  The other zombies outside that were still in big enough pieces after the explosion headed for the open door.
Probably not a Goat, either.

The explosions and all the commotion happened so quickly that Arthur and the people around him couldn't really explain how they ended up behind a line of mangled football players and separated from the main group. As he looked around, he spotted a few other people pulling themselves to their feet and rushing for cover. Because they'd ended up somewhere in the dark, the footballers continued to head toward the juicy, illuminated main group. Of course, that moment of relaxation was shattered as a young man screamed at the top of his lungs as a zombie came down on his neck. He stumbled for a few feet before collapsing onto the pavement. His gun skittered across the ground toward Arthur and as the politician picked it up, he heard the former survivor moan loudly.

"Kill me!!" he cried in a mangled voice. "Kill m-"

A female survivor nearby didn't waste any time and blew the man's head off as Arthur retreated alongside her. The pair rounded a crumbling plaster wall and began taking pot shots at the footballers, hoping to distract a few of them long enough to get a path cleared back to the main group.

"That can't be good," Harrison mumbled to himself as he thumbed more rounds into his magazine. He had only brought so many clips for his rifle, and they had gone rather quickly when clearing out the building. Now he had fallen back with the rest of the group, fumbling to get the bullets in fast enough. One of the bullets slipped from his hand and fell to the floor. Harrison didn't even bother trying to pick it up, but instead shoved the next bullet into the magazine. Once he finished, he slammed the magazine home and worked the bolt to chamber the round.

Harrison moved back to the front line, if that's what it could be called, and leveled his rifle at the nearest armored zombie. It took two shots to bring him down, something that Harrison didn't like at all.

"This isn't going to be good..."

The explosion rocked Chris as he fell to the floor.
Pulling up next to Harrison, Chris too, aimed his revolver at the approaching armored foes. Finding chinks in their armor was tough, but after some recollection he remembered reading about medieval armor. It was weak at the points it connected. Obvious to most people, Chris wasn't sure about the entirety of the group. Afterall, surviving was about some sort of cooperation when it was necessary.

"Aim for the neck if you have such an ability! It's the only part unarmored! If not, aim for the same place, don't try to spread your shots, make your own weak point!" He called out to the group as he reloaded as quickly as he could.

"You got an escape plan, Harrison?" He said to him as he heard the rifle shoot a few more times.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

One of the armored zombies stooped over the survivor recently put out of his misery with a bullet to the head.  He tilted his helmet back slightly and scooped up what was left of the man's head, slurping it down with a satisfied grunt.

*Ping*
*Ping*

His helmet had two good dents in the top, but the small arms fire hadn't broken through it yet.  The zombie shoved his helmet back in place and charged after Arthur and the survivors with him.

Harrison and Chris managed to drop another zombie, but as soon as it slumped over the one behind it hurled one of the empty kegs in their direction.  Fortunately, a bottleneck had formed at the crushed barricade, as the other zombies outside wedged each other in place trying to squeeze through the door.

Travis had kept with the main group, in the rear. He had been pretty much out of the action, he couldn't even shoot for fear of hitting one of the other survirvors. Finally he got the chance to get closer. Moving up, his Desert Eagle out, he stopped and popped off a shot at one of the Keg-zombies. The large .50 round punched through the head keg quite nicely and the zombie fell.
"What do you know," He said to Arthur while popping off another shot. "This handcannon's finally good for something." Another zombie began a charge at them. He took the shot, but sadly, it merely punched through the top edge of the head, missing anything important. Luckily, it threw the zombie off balance and caused him to topple to the floor at his feet. He aimed down and fired another bullet into it's head, point blank. He raised his gun again and fired off the last shot before his gun clicked empty. He removed the clip, pocketing it, and slid in one of his two spares.
"I've got fourteen shots here, I need to make these count." He reminded himself.

The four agents had heard the explosion from the other hallway and had rushed to check that the people in the main group were alright. Some were fighting in the hallway, but others were stranded in the courtyard among the growing crowd of zombies. It was becoming obvious that the chapel couldn't be protected indefinitely anymore, for now though, they'd probably be fighting through the night.

Marcus and his team moved out, using shotguns and handguns the three FBI agents set to work on the regular zombies outside, while Mallon braced the 7.62mm rifle to lay down some more firepower on the armoured frat boys advancing on Arthur and the others.

"HOLY CRAP!" Exclaimed Chris as the keg came rocketing towards him and Chris. Without thinking he hurriedly ducked and shoved Harrisons feet out from under him, causing him to crash to the ground as the keg whizzed over their heads. "That was a close one" he muttered as he rose back to his feet.

Looking he saw that the zombies approach had slowed due to a natural wedge forming, this was good, as it bought them some time as the others began to pick off the zombies as they filtered through. He offered his hand to Harrison, "Perhaps we should fall back a little, eh?"
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Harrison took the offered hand and hopped back up to his feet.

"That doesn't sound like too bad of an idea. Is there any last resort area in this place or is it anything goes at this point?" Harrison fired off a couple more shots at the zombies while asking this, which made it a little bit hard to hear what he was saying over the sounds of the gunshots.
