Day 55 Christmas Eve night, unnamed settlement, Badlands of Tarkania

The Survivors are weary, sitting together around a fireplace in an abandoned home contemplating their final moments. The sun is almost down and soon hordes of the undead will be upon them for what is likely the final time. Bobby Lee rises to his feet, ready to face the challenge.  His fellow survivors join him.

Thriller: This is the end! WOOOOO! See you on the other side, gentlemen!

Nikolai: If tonight is our last, so be it.  We go down with a fight!

A blinding light fills the room as the fireplace is suddenly replaced by a time portal.

A voice in the light speaks: If you want to live, come with me now.

Nikolai: Who the hell are you?

As zombies begin destroying the walls of the home, Nikolai fires a shot at first attacker entering the room.  Bobby Lee takes a final look around before grabbing Nikolai and Thriller in a big bear hug.  He takes a deep breath before jumping through the portal.

PJ Hawx Joins His Father Luke Hawx in the Filsinger Indies Series!

As part of the Q2 Indies Prime releases comes a 2nd generation wrestler out of the Louisiana area, PJ Hawx!  PJ is the son of long time indie veteran Luke Hawx and team together as a formidable tag team known as Hawx Aerie.  “The Prodigy” was an accomplished amateur wrestler before joining the pro ranks.  He is known to utilize his amateur skills in the ring, but has also caught the eyes of fans with his death-defying leaps.  PJ Hawx achieved some level of notoriety this past February when a clip of him jumping off the 2nd story of a mall onto his opponents in the ring went viral. Promoters will be quick to team up PJ and his father Luke Hawx (found in the Tier 1 Wrestling pack).  Will they be a contender in your team rankings?

Day 50

Bobby Lee sits alone on a couch of an unidentifiable military bunker wearing a thousand yard stare. Dead bodies of zombies the Survivors just killed lay at their feet.

Bobby Lee: I knew that guy. I knew that guy and I killed him.

Second Man: Who did you know?

Bobby Lee: [Pointing toward one of the zombie bodies] I played against him in high school. I hadn’t seen him in years. But I recognize the man. He went off to play ball somewhere else the same year I was drafted here.

Second Man: That was no man. That was a monster.

Thriller: That’s right man! And you tore his stinking head off like it was nothing! HA!

Bobby Lee finally breaks his thousand yard stare and fixates his gaze on Thriller.

TIMELINE – Unknown Settlements, Badlands of Tarkania, Centra

Day 1

The first case of an unknown virus in a remote settlement located in the Badlands of Tarkania.  Scientists are so far unable to determine its origin.

Day 8

The novel virus has been spreading rapidly.  Officials have been working to slow the spread, but the infection rate is rising rapidly.  After going thorough contact tracing, Centra health officials believe that all cases seem to be linked to a single individual who had spent time at the Ruins of Antilia. No further information about the individual is available.  A temporary hospital is being constructed because the remote settlement does not have the facilities to handle the large number of infections that are being reported.

Day 10

The first death from the “Antilia Virus” (as the media has dubbed it) occurred today.  More and more members of the remote settlement have been coming forward with symptoms, which include numbness in extremities, severe headache and difficulty breathing.

Day 20

Chaos has consumed the settlement.  In just over two weeks, ten percent of the population has died from the Antilia Virus.  Dead bodies are beginning to pile up in the streets as there are no real coroner facilities in the settlement.  Those not yet infected are fighting among each other, stealing from one another or worse. The entire settlement and three other settlements nearby have become lawless. Centra officials have quarantined the entire area and no one can get in or out.

Day 40

The worst nightmares have come true. The settlements are under attack from a zombie apocalypse! Over half the population in the area has been killed by the rabid Antilia Virus.  13 days after death, Antilia Virus victims have been coming back from the dead. Nobody is safe. If you can hear this transmission, find cover now!

[Sounds of zombies breaking down doors can be heard]

Be safe!  May God have mercy on us all!

[Gun shots]

No….NO!!

[Screams are heard before the transmission cuts out and all we have is dead air.]

Day 41

An automated news cam catches three Survivors walking carefully down a set of train tracks in a dust storm. They are scavenging abandoned box cars for gas, weapons, food, medicine and tools.

Day 42

All hope is lost.  Zombies are everywhere all across the settlement and the surrounding area. If there are any survivors still out there, they are alone. All communication has been lost.  The last roaming news cam stopped broadcasting.

Day 45 (All footage hereafter was recovered from cams with that were found in the recovery effort)

A hulking figure stands with slumped shoulders leaning against a wall in an ally.  Dead bodies of zombies the Survivors just killed lay at their feet. The second man quietly digs through the pockets of the dead, collecting their supplies and weapons. A third man is pacing around with a bat.  He exudes an excitement that stands in stark contrast to his fellow survivors.

Thriller: WOOO!  Hell yeah! What a rush! You think there are any more coming?

His compatriots don’t respond, but continue to go about their business.

Erick Stevens Kicks Off Indies Prime Q2

Kicking off the 2nd quarter of Promoter Prime is a highly requested Indie wrestling game card for Erick Stevens!  Stevens’s original Filsinger Game card debuted in 2009 as part of the Legends of the Future series, but this is his first color game card.  Stevens had his original run on the indies in the 2000’s, winning the Wrestling Observer Rookie of the Year in 2007 and culminating his career at the time in Ring of Honor in 2010.  Then after nearly a decade away he returned to the indies in 2019 to see the excitement of the indie movement of today first hand.  He was set to retire again in April in his hometown of Tampa, but due to the unexpected cancellation of shows this spring Erick announced his career would continue after the shutdown to end things the right way.  In the mean time Filsinger Games fans will get to play out all the match ups we missed out on the past month and all the other indie dream matches we hope to still see.
