Zombie themed survival RP
« on: June 12, 2008, 05:18:23 PM »
I am a BIG fan of the subgenre of Zombieflicks. Everything from Evil Dead to Dawn of the Dead.
What I had in mind was, that it would be cool roleplaying as a group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic zombie setting.
The Zombies have fully taken over all of the worlds major cities. Because of the nature of zombies, no military force was enough in the end. Zombies roam the world and a small bunch of scattered groups remain, armed and on constant watch.
Group dynamics is always interesting, and the very unique circumstances that these imaginary catastrophes create is too damn intriguing to be left alone.
The hunch is, I am new to the forum, and inexperienced in organizing bigger games (More than two writers)
But does anyone at least understand me here? The RP would take place somewhere in the world, in a group with 4 people. Both lords and ladies. What happens to a group under the constant pressure? I think i could turn out very exciting.

As I mentioned in another fan, I'm a huge thread of post-apocalyptic settings. I would definatly be interested in something like this, I'm going to start trying to think of a character concept, for now, bump for zombies!

Ooh, I do like the zombie apoc setting. There were a few attempts at such a game, but they seem to have petered out a bit.

Count me in as a player, as I don't think I'm up to doing such a thing justice as a GM (if that's what you're looking for?)

I haven't GM'ed a game on this board but I would be willing to try.  I used to GM a lot back in college so I think I could pick it up pretty quickly.  If you don't have a GM set up yet let me know.

I just finished rereading World War Z and The Zombie Survival Handbook; and I am eager to explore the theme a bit more.

I doubt you'd be willing to accept anyone else, but if you would, count me in.

Huh, really?  I'm halfway through World War Z right now.

Same here. For the first time ever, a good source of "canon"

Ok, so do you think we are ready to start?  I can create a thread where everyone can describe their character which might work to get folks going. 

Sounds good?

It'd be easier to just use this thread.  I've found that focusing all aspects of the rp into two threads (an OOC and IC) works best.

But that's just me.

we should probably move OOC chat out of this forum and into a playing forum... I suspect the board managers would prefer only threads actively seeking players would be bumped in here, for that purpose.

But we need, at least, a name right?

Sounds good to me.  Should we go ahead and open up a OOC threat for folks to post their characters?  And if so what category would you suggest?

Depends on the degree of sexuality Custos has in mind.  Hmm, Custos?

Listen, I have thought about this as much as I have written. But, I mean, no ones going to have sex with a zombie right?(!) Some sexual themes will be there, I think.  But it may have to be extreme, if were going to kill zombies, you know, decapitating an' all.

O, trust me, I've seen sex worked into some pretty strange areas, but I wasn't referring to zombies...  (unless someone wants to commit suicide in a very unique way).

I tend to err on the cautious side... perhaps put it in extreme for the violence, with the waiver that inter-player interactions can still only be extreme when agreed between the players, rather than assumed?

Yep, I think it'll  have to be put under extreme.

Sure we would love to have you.  I will create a new OOC thread in the Extreme Small Groups thread.  I figure we can post a little blurb about each of our characters and settle on a setting to start out with.  I will post again once the thread is established.

I started an OOC thread for folks to post their characters and comment about the intro I set forward.  If you have any questions or criticism please let me know by PM or post.  Thanks for your patience and lets have some fun.
