Its a disease?, Is it Viral?, Is it Fungal?, Or Airborn?.
We are all Infected!. Act like it! Its a revelation that we leave upto the players to figure out. Doesn't matter if you are bitten or not if you die you turn, That is how it started after all, some one died turned and bit a loved one. etc etc.. The point here is this is the end of the world, we want you to play your characters accordingly, the reason we are starting at the very beginning is only because, we want character Development, that is why we start at the very starting, and then we move into become tougher.
If some how your character ends up with 4 shotguns and 700 rounds of ammo in the backseat of his car, then well, he is probably going to die sooner than the rest of the survivors. the people who survive are those that are cautious and not those who are packing the largest gun. So lets just say when the world ends you are not prepared. You are in your Pjs and scared shitless. That's how we play it. We are not against your character being a bad ass, but Just remember, everyone has a few weaknesses, and it is better to develop a character in game which makes you more attached to them. If you are to do all the development behind the scenes and bring a full fledged character in game that will make you loose interest rather quickly. you don't want to do that.
The Dead are just that DEAD. The GM's will be active in this game, and we will be throwing hurdles at you every now and again, there will be a exit, and we won't kill your characters without your consent, because its tiring to make characters if they die quickly, its not what we will do, but be sure that you will not get *gm monitored* events, sometimes we will be leaving you in a situation and you will have to crawl your way out realistically. Keep things interesting!
Ideally there will be 2-4 Different groups forming over the course of first 2 weeks as people run and scatter all over the place. So later in the game these groups can come together, and form larger group/s Fortify the place, only to get more hurdles thrown at them. Q.) Is it Global?.A.)
Yes, its Global, but our game will be based strictly within United States.Q.)Is there a Cure?.A.)
As far as the game is Concerned No Cure. There may be story arcs involving one.Q.)What kind of Zombies do we have?.A.)
For the most part they are Dumb, they have no super Powers. For most part they will be original and some modifications to their traits may be made by the GMs.Q.)How do they Detect us?A.)
Smell, Light, Hearing us. If we make sudden movements they will be onto us.Q.)Do we know what to do? how to kill?.A.)
Well, Depending on your character they might and might not know about Zombies. Models might not?, Geeks would, but would probably be enjoying the real life scenario too much to fight back... lol. But sooner or later everyone will figure out what to do, just don't make them crazy zombie slayers from the moment they see one and we will be fine.Q.)How Long has it been since the Outbreak.?A.)
Game will be started JUST AFTER the first news of people eating each other arrive. Q.)Is there a Requirement to Apply for this game?.A.)
Yes, you need to make sure you have the time to Stick with it, and Can write 2 (Good Size) Paragraphs.
Q.)Can I make a person with Military Background?.A.)
No. Before you make a Person with a military background, you will need GM approval, and those characters will be the ones who have the Strictest Rules, and limitations. This is done so we can all play the part equally and not feel like we are following gods. (Military bases are the first to get overrun, so There is Less of them alive than people).Q.)Characters we want.A.)
This game is all about ordinary people, so if you decide to make a security guard, that is alright, but don't put (Ex Military) in the column. A Police Officer is fine, so is a personal Body guard. No one prepares for the End of the world and keeps a stock of guns with 1000+ bullets, because in reality you need to get through a lot of paper work to do that.Q.)Who are the GM's ?A.)
Myself and ...
