I'm organising a zombie apocalypse game that has its inspiration from L4D (zombies & behaviour, survivor aspects), Resident Evil (plot) and Dawn of the Dead (plot & survivor aspects) as well as various other zombie movies, like 28 weeks later. Unfortunately, due to various reasons, we lost 2 of our original 5 members and are hoping to replace them with eager participants.
The set up of this game is a little bit different from what you're used to with other games in E. We fill in a template that explains the skills of your characters and share this with the other participants. We also write a biography for our characters, but we don't share the biographies with anybody. The reason for this is that the survivors are all random people who don't know each other when they meet up. Through in-character dialogue and actions people will get to know one anothers' characters.
There is a strong focus on character development, but next to that I've also developed a very interesting storyline. The story is set up in such a way that there is an overarching plot, which also leaves a lot of freedom to the players and let them shape the story. Since the story only just started a new IC thread will be started with the introduction story. The previous IC topic will be abandoned, so that we can make a fresh start with the new people that join in. The game is set up in such a way that there is also plenty of room for future games that are set in the same universe as this one.
As I said, I'm only looking for 1, maybe 2 replacements. Each of the current participants roleplays at least 2 characters and possibly this number will increase later on in the roleplay. What we expect from participants
- No god moding whatsoever, our characters are based on real life physics; which means no dual wielding with guns or single-handedly taking down massive numbers of zombies.
- No super soldier characters (police officers or war veterans are allowed, but no special ops or SWAT)
- Active participation with 1 post a day (if you have real life interfering then please inform us ahead of time in the OOC thread).
There are some other rules, but those are the most important ones. List of current characters
Caitlin Walker - Nurse (Caitlin)
Carl Johnson - Priest (Caitlin)
Katherine James - Police woman (Wiccaangel311)
Samantha Bones - High school student (Wiccaangel311)
Rebecca Lawson - High school student (AribethAmkiir)
Anthony Burkhart - High school student (AribethAmkiir)
Todd Burkhart - Business owner (AribethAmkiir)
I added additional background information in the spoilers, it's quite a read, but it should answer a lot of questions already.
If you have additional questions or want more information then feel free to ask!
