To begin with, I never really got started with my Roleplays in here. However, I'm here now, and figured I'd run a roleplay as a GM, to begin with, since that's what I really enjoy doing.

Dreadful Errors, original roleplay.
This roleplay is an 'almost' freeform roleplay with GM controlled instances and some dice rolls that are based on no system but one I've built just for this game. GM will also set the scene.
Disclaimer: This roleplay may include exaggerated violence, gore, rape, non-consentual sexual encounters with 'creatures' and other extreme themes.
The premise: Dreadful Errors is a post apocalyptic roleplay, taking place in alternate-universe setting. In year 2020, large parts of the earth are overrun by mutated creatures, who behave much like zombies, though the danger they pose is far greater. Steel-Arm, weapons manufacturer has come up with a new type of biological weapon, that was supposed to work by causing the enemy soldiers to 'go berserk' and destroy themselves. However, something went wrong in the manufacturing process, causing the 'M-virus' to mutate its victims into what one could only describe as creatures of darkness.
You take the role of a soldier, in a special unit of the international defence force, often dubbed as the humanity's last stand. Your mission is to enter the devastated city of New York, overrun by the mutants. The intel operation has revealed that a group of people, who appear to be immune to the effects of the virus, are stranded there, the answer to vaccinating people against the virus, and the answer to humanity's survival may lie in these people. Unfortunately, as you begin your mission, your group becomes separated as your transport helicopter crash lands. You must locate your team, and in the meantime, survive on your own.
Immune: - You are immune to the mutation virus. You are part of ill-equipped group that is doing its best to survive the marauding monsters that creep in the shadows of the ruins of New York. Your only mission is to survive another day, and to hope for rescue.
Steel-Arm agent: - You are part of a small unit sent by the Steel-Arm corporation. Your mission is to secure the safe return of the Immune, so they can be researched to develop a new, more controllable strand of the weapon. Your equipment is of the most advanced technology available. You choose how you reach your goal, by co-operating with the international defence force, or by trying to stop them so you may freely reach your own goals.
The main type of the mutants are the mutated humans, as the virus is designed to affect humans. They are obsidian skinned, with scales covering them from head to toe, completely hairless and generally standing around seven feet tall. Extremely muscular and agile. Their eyes are completely black. They are incredibly fast, strong, agile and durable, making them near unstoppable without weapons. Escaping is your best option, but their physical superiority will make such feat difficult. Best to stay unnoticed. The best way to kill them is a head shot, though enough damage done to the rest of the body may do the trick.
Weremutants are mutated humans that were bitten by an animal during, or just before the mutation process, causing the animal DNA that has entered in their blood stream to affect the mutation. These are rarer, especially in New York, where there aren't many animals to be seen. However they are even more dangerous than your typical mutants, gaining heightened abilities relative to the animal that has been the cause.
While the virus does not mutate animals, it causes them to go berserk and attack pretty much anything alive, other than the mutants It appears the virus is defending itself.
"The virus" - The virus is an offspring of a mutant and a human. This is what many consider to be the true form of the M-Virus. Though they are the rarest of the mutants, seeing as non-mutated humans tend to keep their distance from the mutants, they are by far the most dangerous. The resemblance to humans is almost completely gone from these spiderlike, obsidian black creatures. They travel on eight legs, though each of their legs resemble human arms, more than legs of any animal, having 'hands' at the ends of them, with five fingers and sharp claws at the ends of each finger. They have a human like upper body, protruding from their spider-like torso, like a spider centaur. However, the upper body resembles human one only in shape, obsidian dark like the rest of the creature, it is covered in scales and ridges.
M-virus infects through bites. When an infected mutant bites a non infected one, the virus spreads in their body, gradually turning the victim into a mutant themselves.
There is an effective antidote, which can stop the spreading of a virus, however, it does not grant immunity, nor does it heal damage that's been done. A hand that's been mutated, will remain mutated, for example. There is a limited supply of the antidote.
