The Fourth Leg of the Race

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the fourth leg of the Amazing Mutant Race 3. Last week we saw our nine teams race towards the Bonneville Salt Flats where they had to jump from an airplane with the Flying Elvi. Once done, they then hurried to Las Vegas, Nevada where they had to choose between either being a personal assistant to Celine Dion or headlining their own act on the Strip. After completing their tasks, the teams then sped to the Pit Stop at the lobby of Caesar’s Palace where they were greeted by myself and K-Fed. Barely finishing ahead of their competitors, A Army of (Cl)One and Angel were the first team to arrive, winning that leg of the race.

AOC and Angel get to use a Yield against another team of their choice. They must simply post the name here and then that team will have their start time delayed by one hour.

The last team to arrive was Gaia and Havok. Though performing their tasks quite well, they just couldn’t recover from their late start out of Smallville. As always, the last team to arrive was eliminated.

This leg of the race starts in Las Vegas, Nevada. Teams must make their way by train or plane and then the provided white SUVs to the pre-selected site at the Grand Canyon, just south of the Grand Canyon Village in Arizona. At that point, the Grand Canyon is at its most narrow, only 1,400 feet wide. There the teams face their Roadblock. A Roadblock is a challenge only one member of a team may perform.

Are You A Dardevil? Evil Knievel, the daredevil famous for breaking every bone in his body at one time or another, had planned this jump to be the highlight of his career, but it never happened. One player from each team will make his dream come true by jumping the Canyon in a rocket powered Skycycle.

If and when the jump is successfully completed, the teams must then travel by train and car to Raccoon City, Nevada. Once in the city they must head to one of the nine identical Umbrella Corporation buildings. There is evil in residence at the Umbrella Corp. The whole complex has been infested with man-eating zombies.

In the lobby of the building the teams will find the instructions for the Detour along with lockers filled with a variety of hand held weapons. A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. Teams must successfully complete one of the tasks described on the clue in order to receive their next clue. In this Detour, the teams must choose between Kill or Cure.

In Kill, the teams will have to make their way through the zombie infested underground levels of the Umbrella Complex to the power plant on the 6th sub-floor. In addition to the hundreds of regular zombies, the teams must get past the five very powerful “boss” zombies to plant high-powered explosives in the generator. Once the timer is activated, the teams then have 15 minutes to get to safety.

In Cure, the teams must make their through the zombies down to the second level bio laboratory. There, while holding off the ravenous undead hoards, they must develop an airborn cure for the zombies. Once they have a cure they must then administer it to the zombies through the central air conditioning unit on the third level.

Once the Detour is succesfully completed, the teams must then make their way to the Raccoon City police station. As always, the last team to arrive will be eliminated.

Yippie yi yeah!! We get to kill something (or be killed, eaten and come back as the undead with a taste for brains)

I give the Yield to Prof X!! Oh, I can't do that? hmmmmm

I guess it will either Vegeta or Captian Koma. I'll flip a coin; heads Vegeta do not get the Yield, Tails Koma does get the Yield.

*flips coin, it is heads*

I guess Vegeta don not get the Yield, do it goes to Koma.

You're lucky, Gyrobo. From what I understand, zombies detest robot clown hyrbid brains.

If you make robot clown hybrid brains with a raspberry white wine sauce, I hear they are quite tasty.


*packs and send a crate of raspberry white wine sauce to Raccoon City*

My brain is only considered a delicacy in parts of the Triangulum Galaxy, in the brain sector.
