What ever happened to Swamp Rat? (Current Plot)

-The Story So Far-

No one knows what exactly happened to the teams that used to dwell here.

Some say that a sickness came and wiped everyone out.
Others suggest a mass Respawn malfunction.
Still others think that it was a simple matter of one team conquering the other and finding nothing more to do.
Whatever the case, it left the RED and BLU bases abandoned for years, left to fall into disrepair, rusting and rotting and sinking into the swamp, reclaimed by the nature surrounding it.

But now the Companies have found another purpose for the dilapidated bases, dumping their rejects and experimental refuse and leaving them to the mercy of the swamp.
The accidents, the unwanted, the untrained.
All of them tossed aside to fend for themselves.

Something is stirring in the mists of the swamp, and you've arrived just in time for it to cling.

Continuing the Story...


Tensions are running high for the RED team members still occupying the base, their non-hybrid Soldier that everyone thought was a pleasant sort of fellow losing his mind in a violent frenzy that wound up with one of the team's Pyros and the chimera coming through Respawn after hours, along with the Soldier himself.
There is currently an emergency meeting taking place to discuss the matter, as well as to confront the issues of their missing teammates and the current lack of Leadership.

On BLU, things aren't much better.
With the base practically empty, the new Heavy finds herself caught in a bit of a sticky situation with the only active Medic when his office furniture makes an honest attempt on his life, finding out far more about the man than she'd ever counted on in the aftermath.

Lingering in the background, a morbid discovery found after hours still lingers in the minds of those who found it, and hesitate to inform their respective teams. But what if it's the key to finding their lost teammates...?

Continuing the Story...


RED and BLU have come to a truce, increasing worries over missing team members and low supplies as well as deciding leadership after so long without anyone to take charge having taken precedent over the Company divisions.

Most recently, RED has had two members return from the grave, both figuratively and literally, while BLU has recovered one of their strays, which gives hope that the rest of the missing could be found and rescued. With a little help from the BLU Engineer's mechanical skills.

But the rediscovery of missing teammates pales in comparison to what a little search party composed of both RED and BLU members have discovered out by the Island, a monstrous creature attacking them while they worked to unearth the long decomposed corpse of a BLU member from the silt of the swamp bottom. There have already been injuries, and death may not be far in the future if someone can't pull the BLU Heavy out of the water in time.

Continuing the Story...


A lot has happened in the past three months, both for RED and BLU.

For RED, the return of an old friend has drawn attention to the fact that maybe not everyone who disappeared did so against their will, while their resident (hybrid) doctor has gotten himself deathly ill with a bacterial infection and found himself in the care of the BLU's lone Medic. While the REDs have been scrambling to find and help Rufus, a new Medic has arrived on the scene and hit it off rather famously with the BLU's rather eccentric new Engineer.
On top of this, an incident near the train tracks has solidified Josif's less than stable mental state, as well as the record for most deaths on base. It's unclear as to what exactly is going on in his head, and even less so how anyone may be able to help.

On the BLU side of things, new teammates have popped in and out, a rather... Odd Engineer taking up residence in the Weapons Development room and a Demoman making the team's avian Scout more than a little nervous, along with a Sniper who was resurrected through the chip that was found in the swamp after fighting off the mutant alligator snapping turtle that killed the RED's Soldier, Josif, and their female Scout popping in through Respawn. The team's Medic has been keeping himself busy treating the RED's wayward doctor, on top of his usual duties, and a small rift has been made between the old and the new with Enrico's reaction to Gerhard's patient.

In other news, a new monster has taken residence in the swamp, a creature of neolithic proportions that has made its stance clear regarding the two teams; Get too near the water, and you are monster food. To make matters worse, the beast has destroyed the arrival docks as well as taken to attacking incoming boats, so supplies as well as new team members have been forced to arrive overland, an arduous journey that has vastly limited the availability of necessities. BLU's Engineer has come up with a few plans regarding taking care of the beast, and RED's chimera has been scared out of his wits by the appearance of a nightmare from his past.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET BIRD DO THINGS

MEANWHILE...


Both teams have had new arrivals, on the RED a new Engineer takes the long way around (involving a shiny new swamp tractor and a very scared salamander). And on the BLU team, a new Medic takes a walk, tries to take on a swamp monster, gets hit in the face with a book (knowledge is power), and then said swamp monster gets shot in the face with a crossbow, leaving it mortally wounded (and angry).

Meanwhile, RED's ill medic is still missing, and his teammates make multiple attempts to rescue him, quite unsuccessfully I might add. Luckily, Jericho gets to keep his leg, and Rufus makes a makes a full recovery, and makes a new friend as well.

Back at the ranch, a gathering of REDs and BLUs has a discussion about how to kill the swamp monster, where no definitive conclusion is reached, but a number of possible solutions are presented, including a magic microwave. A pyro deals with depression, and a dog goes on an adventure (resulting in a cute overload).

But everything is terrible all is not well at Swamp Rat. Desperately low on supplies, both teams decide to crack open their locked warehouses out of desperation. Totally unprepared for the things within, they encounter the radioactive ghosts of mercenaries past, including a dead sniper, a presumed dead spy, Elvis, and a giant bird. Additionally, the arrival of two new teammates! A new soldier for BLU as well asa new demowoman for the RED team (also boobs).

Of course, opening the warehouses gave the hapless mercenaries much more than they bargained for, but luckily, thanks to the last minute defenses set up by the BLU engineer, everyone isn't going to die! With the immediate threat of radiation out of the way, Gerhard tries to convince the recently dead sniper Enrico to not shoot the newly healed patient on sight, and a certain RED Medic and his BLU Engineer friend sit out on the porch and discuss destroying Mr. Fish the Swamp Monster once and for all...
