Wanting to start a new Zombie role play!
« on: February 23, 2012, 09:26:19 PM »
I know there is at least one out there, however I hate making big groups of people for role plays. So I would like to see if anyone else would be interested in a zombie role play. A realistic one since I have seen some really bad ones in other roleplaying sites.

I'm not much of a leader though, but I am willing to put my idea's out there to see if others are interested too.

I used to start role plays off in the aftermath of the zombie apocolypse were everything happened and most people are dead, however I'd like to go realistic and start from the beginning.

A cure has been crafted for the common cold. It was a cure all, the minute you got the cure in your system you'd never get a cold again. The cure had somehow passed all the tests, and made it to the public in a record. Many people signed up for the cure, older people and young children getting cured first. Things went well after that for a very long time. The cure took a long time to make, so most of the general population and those who couldn't afford the cure had to wait.
However, those people who had to wait wouldn't get the cure. At least not in the way they had thought. The cure somehow changed people. A bit afterwards, those who had the cure started to show signs of aggression. They clawed at other people, threw things, yelled. Then after a week of that they grew quiet, and walked around like they had no thoughts. Soon after that the aggression came back with a vengence. Now it seemed that those who had the cure wanted to eat everyone. The moment you were bitten the infection spread to you. The new mutated version only took hours to turn a person into a people eater.

Would anyone be interested in that kind of scene? I was planning on starting it off right after people had been found trying to eat one another. In a small city, maybe a college town?

I've been looking for a zombie game that peaked my interest and you did it. Although I had seen other zombie games I always seemed to find them after a large number of people had already got in on it... So it's nice to have a chance to be on the ground floor.

Sounds interesting.

I am happy to share storytelling duties but i think it works best if everyone feels they are the storyteller and just post as they are inspired / without checking just all believe they are authors - remember you can always create tangents.

I'd be interested as well!  A college town works well for me, and I'm all for the realistic side of things.

I'd be playing a male character, probably either a college student or a professor, depending on what the rest of the group looks like.

The US makes sense ...I'm one of the ones who don't live there but its easy enough to write for the place.....be easier than getting you all to write this story based in Good Ole New Zealand (which I'm have an easy time discribing the land between Pokeno and Pukekohe as you head toward Tuakau past Buckland)

and West Coast is cool ....Oregon/ Washington or California?

Profile coming soon

I'll jump in on this if I can - the last two zombie RPs I joined died quickly (no pun intended).

Looking at the submitted PCs so far, there's already at least one med student, so the character I was going to submit won't work out - consider this a placeholder while I brainstorm a new concept.

--

Name: Samuel Dravis
Sex: Male
Age: 24
Height: 5'3"
Weight: 160 lbs.
Appearance: A short, chunky man with a vaguely Hispanic tint to his skin, with ragged black hair and dark eyes and a broken, crooked nose. He wears gloves to hide the tattoos on his hands, favoring long-sleeved shirts and sweatpants for similar reasons.
Background information: Sam mostly raised himself, growing up with a deadbeat father and an alcoholic mother, very much an independent and free-spirited sort without any head for rules and authority. He dropped out of high school to join a gang, but split after a year in prison for dealing drugs. Now he runs a gas station, channeling his free time and energy into radical protesting with the occasional less-than-legal firebombing on the side.
Weapons: Double-barreled shotgun, switchblade, improvised explosives
Personality: Sam makes up for his short stature with an overabundance of energy - rude, crude, and (he thinks) hilarious whenever possible. Between his childhood, gang life, and prison time, he can be deceptively vicious and ruthless towards anything he considers a threat - but at the same time, he sticks like glue to people he considers worth being with.
Other information: Tends to be very insecure about his height, and reacts badly to short jokes.

Count me in

Age:21
Height: 5'9"
Weight:156

Background information: Clarence grew up in a small town in West Virginia, after high school though he moved out west to try to make a better life for himself. He ended up getting a decent paying job as a security guard. He was married once but she left him, so he has been divorced recently. He also has a part time job making replica weapons from video games, movies, cartoons, etc. One of his prized replicas, is that of the hidden blade from Assassins Creed.
Weapons: He has a sword that he made originally just for display, but eventually decided to sharpen for personal protection. He also has the replica hidden blade which he will most likely sharpen and attempt to use if possible, he is unsure of how that will work though.
Personality:He is a funny and outgoing guy at times. Has a calm demeanor in tense situations, mostly why he was able to get his job with the security company.
Other information: Has a Chopper that he likes to ride frequently and a German Shepherd named Axle, who is a very protective dog.

((P.s. Hope the Description for appearance is fine, I tend to prefer writing them...I can never find a picture that satisfies me well))

How many players are you seeking for this Arabella? I have a blonde cheerleader who I used in another zombie game about a year or more back. It faded away, as these things do but I enjoyed playing the character and she has some experience already of screaming and running ;)
