Static. You adjust the tuner. You can faintly make out the voice of a reporter:\n//...Police have set up roadblocks along Highway 15 in an attempt\nto find the missing persons. Expect major delays...//\n\n"Bogus, dude!" says Roach. "We can't miss Alice! Maybe there's a back road somewhere..."\n\n[[check the glove box for a map|Page4a]]\n[[look out the window|Page4b]]

You kick the door as hard as you can. Nothing happens. \n\nThe truck comes closer. You kick the door again. It shatters and cuts your leg.\n\nYou reach in and unlock the door, then hobble inside.\n\n[[continue|Page13]]
You toss the lighter to the ground. Mad Dog is engulfed in flames. \n\nYou run away as the garage catches fire. The gas station explodes.\n\n[[continue|Page22]]
You flail loose and kick the gas can out from under the rolling steel door.\nThe door collapses on Mad Dog's arms. He screams.\n\nYou stand up and take out your lighter.\n\n"Time to put this dog down," you say.\n\n[[ignite lighter|Page21]]
It's a bunch of heavy metal fans.\nOne of them asks "Whoa dude, what the hell happened to you?"\n\nYou reply "I need a ride to Alice Cooper."\n<html>\n<br>\n<font size="3">THE END\n</font>\n<br>\n<br>\n<font size="1">by Cory Hoover 2013 | <a href="http://www.soundcloud.com/keytar-cory" target="_blank"><font color="00cc00">Soundcloud</font></a> | <a href="http://www.twitter.com/coryjhoover" target="_blank"><font color="00cc00">Twitter</font></a>\n</font>\n</html>
You stumble down the road towards Highway 15. A black van appears in the distance.\nIt pulls up next to you. The cargo door slides open.\n\n[[continue|Page23]]

You're almost at the gas station. You hear the truck engine start up behind you.\n\nYou run past the gas pumps towards the front door.\nYou look over your shoulder and see the truck coming.\n\nThe front door is locked.\n\n[[kick door open|Page11]]\n[[run to garage|Page14]]\n
You drive on Route 58 for several miles. It's desolate. Not a car in sight.\n\n[[continue|Page6]]
"Hey kid, wake up."\n\nYour eyes adjust to the darkness.\nThere's a man standing outside, and a semi truck parked behind you.\n\n"You must be Roach's friend," he says.\n"Come on, I'll give you a ride back to the gas station."\n\n[[get in truck|Page9c]]\n\n
You get in and the truck drives off.\n\n"Thanks for picking me up, Mister. Our car broke down and -"\n\n"- The name's not Mister," says the driver. "It's Mad Dog."\n\n[[continue|Page9d]]
"Oh. Ok, Mad Dog. So uh, where's Roach?"\n\n"I saw your friend walking. He said he'd give his right arm for a ride," says Mad Dog.\n\n"Is he waiting at the gas station?"\n\nMad Dog ignores you.\n\n[[continue|Page8e]]
Mad Dog - by Cory Hoover
"So...uh...why do they call you Mad Dog?"\n\nMad Dog rolls up his sleeve, revealing a tattoo.\n\n"I'm an arm wrestling champion, kid. People used to say I was rabid. Like a dog. And I woulda won it all if not for that...\n\nLightning strikes in the distance. You have a split second.
You spring up and push the oil drum over. It rolls into Mad Dog's legs\nand he falls to the ground. Oil spills everywhere.\n\nYou run to the rolling steel door. A gas can is bracing it up. You slide under the gap.\n\n[[knock gas can away|Page19]]
"What's that noise?" you ask.\nRoach says "I don't hear anyth-"\n\nSmoke bursts out of the engine. The car swerves.\n"Whoa, shit!" says Roach.\n\n[[pull over|Page7]]
"It must have overheated," says Roach. \n \n"Didn't we pass a gas station? It couldn't have been that far back."\n\n"It didn't even look open, man. Wasn't it all boarded up?"\n\n"Well shit what do you wanna do? One of us has to go check it out!"\n\n[[walk to gas station|Page8]]\n[[wait in car|Page9]]
"Hey look," says Roach.\n\nYou see a rusty old sign.\n//Route 58 - Next Left//\n\n"Killer shortcut! Let's take it."\n\n[[continue|Page5]]
You see a rusty old sign.\n//Route 58 - Next Left//\n\n"Killer shortcut - let's take it!" says Roach.\n\n[[continue|Page5]]
You look in the glove box. There's no map, but you find a lighter.\n\n[[take lighter|Page4c]]
You sneak down the aisle of the gas station mini mart.\n\nYou reach the back wall. There's a door.\n\n[[open door|Page14]]
You open the door to the garage and go inside.\nIt's pitch black. Outside, you hear the truck engine turn off.\n\nYou reach in your pocket and find your lighter.\n\n[[light it|Page15]]
The garage illuminates with a dull orange glow.\nOn the wall across from you lies a rolling steel door stuck open about a foot.\nAgainst the other wall, you see several bodies. Their arms are ripped off.\n\nThe door handle jiggles behind you.\n\n[[lock door|Page16]]\n[[hide|Page17]]
You reach for the deadbolt. \nThe door swings open and Mad Dog grabs your wrist. He lifts you off the ground.\n\nMad Dog grabs your other arm and pulls. \nYou scream in agony as your arms are ripped out of their sockets.\n\nGame Over\n\n[[play again?|Start2]]
You hide behind an oil drum. Mad Dog opens the door and enters the garage.\nHe's dragging a body. It's Roach.\n\nYou almost hurl, but cover your mouth.\n\nMad Dog hears you. He drops Roach and walks your way.\n\n[[push oil drum over|Page18]]\n[[stay still|Page18b]]\n\n
(function(){ var render2 = Passage.prototype.render; Passage.prototype.render = function () { var b = render2.call(this); var t = this.tags.join(" "); document.body.setAttribute("data-tags", t); b.setAttribute("data-tags",t); return b; }; if(state) { var tgs = state.history[0].passage.tags.join(" "); var fc = $('passages').firstChild; fc.setAttribute("data-tags",tgs); }}());\n\nif(state) (function(){ var it = setInterval(function(){ var fd = $('passages').firstChild; if (fd!=fc) { clearInterval(it); fd.setAttribute("data-tags",tgs); } },0); }());
You wake up outside behind the gas station.\nYou try to get up but you can't. You're hog tied.\n\nMad Dog emerges from the shadows and lights a road flare.\n\n"Hope you like barbeque," he says.\n\nMad Dog kicks a fuel canister over, drenching you in gasoline.\nHe tosses the flare to the ground. You burst into flames.\n\nGame Over\n\n[[play again?|Start2]]\n\n\n\n\n\n
Mad Dog locks onto your wrist. He drags himself towards you.\n\n"I'm gonna rip your arms off!" he yells.\n\n[[keep reaching for gas can|Page20]]
"Let's get some jams goin," says Roach. "See if you can get a radio signal."\n\n[[turn on AM radio|Page3a]]\n[[turn on FM radio|Page3b]]\n
You freeze. Mad Dog steps closer.\n\n"I got somethin for ya," says Mad Dog.\n\nHe reaches into his jean jacket and pulls out a severed limb.\nYou can tell by the Casio calculator watch that it's Roach's.\n\nMad Dog shoves the oil drum aside and reveals your hiding spot.\nHe clubs you in the face with Roach's arm, knocking you out.\n\n[[continue|Page18c]]
You've been walking for an hour. You look up at the stars. Water drops sprinkle on your face. It's starting to rain. Great...\n\n[[continue|Page8a]]\n
You've been waiting for hours. Your eyes are heavy.\nYou lean against the window and fall asleep.\n\n//TAP TAP TAP//\n\nThere's a knock on the window.\n\n[[continue|Page9b]]
The truck jerks out of control. You slide up against the door and kick the steering wheel.\nThe truck goes off the road and crashes into a ditch. Mad Dog hits his head and is knocked out.\n\n[[get out of truck and run to gas station|Page10]]\n
The door is locked. You turn to look back just as Mad Dog\npunches you in the face with brass knuckles, knocking you out.\n\n[[continue|Page18c]]
You're nearing the gas station.\n\n"So...uh...why do they call you Mad Dog?"\n\nMad Dog lets out a guttural laugh.\n"That's what your friend asked..." he says "...right before I ripped his arms off."\n\nLightning strikes in the distance. You have a split second.\n\n[[reach for door handle|Page8f]]\n[[yank gear shifter into reverse|Page8g]]\n
"Oh. Ok, Mad Dog. Did you see my friend back there? He was waitin' at the car."\n\n"Ain't nobody back there," says Mad Dog.\n\n"You didn't see the car on the side of the road?"\n\nMad Dog ignores you.\n\n[[continue|Page8e]]
You get in and the truck drives off.\n\n"Thanks for picking me up, Mister. Our car broke down and -"\n\n"- The name's not Mister," says the driver. "It's Mad Dog."\n\n[[continue|Page8d]]\n\n
"Get in," says the driver.\n\nYou look closer "...Who are you?"\n\n"You want a ride or not?"\n\nYou look back towards the horizon. //Sigh.// It's a long way.\n\n[[get in truck|Page8c]]
You hear something in the distance. You look over your shoulder. Lights. A semi truck. It slows down and pulls up next to you. The passenger door opens, but you can't see inside.\n\n[[climb in|Page8c]]\n[[stay outside|Page8b]]
Halloween, 1987. You and your best friend Roach are on a road trip to see\nAlice Cooper's //Live in the Flesh// concert at Red Rocks Ampitheater. \n\n[[continue|Page2]]\n
