The Guard Tower

:iconcodename-pantyra:
Codename-Pantyra Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
Imagine you are up in a 50-feet tall guard tower facing the edge of a thick, dark forest. The cab's dimensions comprise a 10x10-foot floor and an 8-foot ceiling height, and the inventory includes the standard lookout and sniper gear, along with several days worth of supplies. Two companions are also up in the tower with you.

It is the middle of the day. You and your companions are scanning the forest treeline and the surrounding plains for any unusual anomalies. Just then, your ears pick up a most dreadful sound coming from the forest: absolute silence. There are no birds singing or animals doing their everyday activity. The entire area is dead quiet.

Companion #1: "Anybody have any idea what's out there?"

Companion #2: "Hell if I knew." *Turns to you* "What do you think, boss? What's the plan?"

First thought would have to be wondering who's the dipshit that thought to hand a bad shot like me sniping gear.

Is the tower metal or wood? What's the cab built like; lightweight or bulletproof? :B

Wood; bulletproof.

That's not too bad, we'll all piss on the outside to make it fireproof. :B

Unless we've been drinking stuff that's over 80 proof.

Wood and bulletproof are two completely different things love.

I meant a wooden framework covered with a bulletproof outer covering.

Yes, metal-plated wood has been around for centuries.

why not just use steel or aluminum I-beams?
Reply
:iconcodename-pantyra:
Codename-Pantyra Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012
It takes more time, resources, and effort to build an all-metal structure. Those I-beams are hard to come by when you're out in the middle of nowhere.

"One of you is going to have to go down there."
"Jeez, boss, why?"
"I've just finished off the last of the supplies."
"Awww, boss!"
"Get down there and bring me more food!"

Hate to say it, but if this is going to turn into an RP, I suggest doing it in the Chat rooms. RPing is not allowed on the forums. =B
