but I'm really screwed if this martial law comes into effect can anybody give me a few tips because i live in the big city not some rural area where
you guys live in no offense to anyone. and another things i would just like to say everyone of you guys talk about hiding well I'm not going to hide i
will be the very first of many to come to fight (than i'm going into hiding) them with my rebel army i mean "Hood" never try to take on a Hood in NY
you'll never win although i fear we will lose.
i say that i will fight because there's no way im leaving the city once martial law takes into effect
also this idea in my head came out of nowhere what if we Exclusively to ATS started our own emergency group so if a disaster ever happened such as
martial law we will all join up in small groups closest to our area and work together think about it. we are all knowledgeable about whats to come so
it would only make sense if the Enlighted stick together.[weird laughter]
Thats a nice idea but it wouldn't work. This place is almost certainly monitered the last thing you would want to do is get a bunch of good
knowledgeable, skilled and die hard people in one place. That would most likely end up bad for all involved. You'd all just be one easy target, better
As far as living in the city goes that sucks but it's not necessarily the end for you. keep a low profile, learn to be quick and quiet on your feet.
I'd advise NOT being in a group of "hood rebel thugs". Dont look anyone in the eye unless prompted to. Do not wear bulky clothing that would make it
appear that you might be hiding something.
Somethings you can do now to improve your chances.
Stay awake longer and push yourself to go without sleep longer. you need to condition your body to going without sleep on occassion. I'm not a doctor
and only you know what your body can handle so obviously use your best judgement and don't drive around on no sleep, okay.
Train your body to fast if you can and are otherwise healthy.
Get ln shape, physically and mentally. All that is to prepare your mind and body for what you might endure. The last thing you need is to fall asleep
in the wrong place, or to be so preoccupied with your hunger pains you start making mistakes. Take your vitamins. If you smoke quit. Take a hand to
hand combat class.
Read any survival guide that you can now. Read "The Art Of War" by Sun Tzu.
And most importantly if you can't escape then blend in. Worry about yourself not what is going on around you.Your survival depends on you and you
only. Don't cause a ruckus, in fact be courteous if addressed. Remember no matter how hard it is to comprehend, they are doing a job that they are
otherwise forced to do. But aside for a few cowboys with trigger fingers they are human too and most do not want to be pushed to kill, so don't push
If you notice something coming down take your chance and get out.
One last point. Spend at least one day a week away from ATS. Enjoy your life and hope that nothing like this ever happens here. It's great to be
prepared but paranoia sucks the life right out of you.
