After thinking about it, I have realized that, while the idea behind the thread is sound, with everybody's unique situation, trying to keep it relevant for each respondant (or is it respondent? I need LLE on this one. I'm too lazy to google the shit) would ultimately force us to make it into some sort of "Choose your own adventure" type thing. As much as I loved those books growing up, I think it'll do more harm than good.
With that, I'm going to try a different approach to my scenario-based wargames. I'm going to give an individual scenario that won't evolve so we can share and compare our preparations, including strenghts and weaknesses and see if we can learn from each other. My goal for this sort of thinking is that since an actual meeting is unlikely, we can attempt to share ideas online for the betterment of all the members of our little virtual back-alley hole-in-the-wall dive bar. we got going here.
Scenario/situation/question number one: There's a county-wide blackout. You don't know the reason or duration. How long are you prepared and willing to stay at home? If you decide to leave the house, where do you go? There are no hostile forces at work, no looting as yet, no social or civil unrest, just a power outage throughout your county.
