So I have been playing ... (112). Wasteland2, in for the long haul.

I shall exploit the header space to boost the signal of our GM's Gofundme campaign:


By the time of writing this post, the intense onward-burst that these episodes are about to chronicle has mostly burnt off. But it will be a bunch-a-dozen episodes and at least a few posts before we reach that plateau, and this is where we get going.

The warm-up run had lead us to a badger-infested mine that was quite a challenge to get through. Things got better when I learned that precision shots to the paws will basically render the badgers to hissing potatoes. (The player characters' shooting skills vary, but at this point most are good enough that it pays off to risk precision shots, at least the disabling kind.)
The first recording that actually worked, kicks in after we've eradicated the badgers and are ready to help the local miners out of a pickle.

We walked out from the mines not only with a load of XP, but also a new follower. Who wielded a pickeaxe. At first I wasn't sure what to do with him, but the pickaxe yielded a lot of damage, so we let him tag along.

With added muscle, I decided to poke at some Prison Valley issues again. We went with violent solutions for the mooks and lieutenants, which probably cemented our latter prison entry challenges. (I haven't tried it but I wonder, whether paying off that guy by the vendor booth and avoiding mook-slaughter elsewhere might grant an entry to the prison-proper later down the plotline?)

At least the pigs were happy.

Learning that prison proper was harder to get into, we wandered about the main map in search of XP. This is how we came across the Abandoned Railroad the first time.

We learned fast that it was a dangerous place with killer robots, and we were not fully up for the challenge.

Wonder off we did, once again, and came upon the radio tower where we found... more robots! This time I decided to approach the situation with skill and tactics.

There will be many more episodes to come; meanwhile, the whole playlist is over here.
