We set the scene in a small mountain town, far away from the city lights and tourists. The town of Reckford stands proud at the edge of the mountain range in a fictitious state. A town built by farmers over 70 years ago, Reckford became known for their orchards and annual strawberry festivals. Today however, the town has seen better days.
The folk living here are rather nicer than most people you'd meet anywhere else, enjoying each others company and greet each other in passing. Where everyone knows each others name and secrets.
Lately the night falls have become darker in our village due to the new plant the city had built. The smog billowing out every day covers the sky preventing the stars from shining and lighting our streets. Over 40 miles away, the smoke travels to clog up our town. The city never publicly cited what the factory was for, rumors are it's Vitamin packing and shipping company...None of us know for sure.
C.E Corp, the name of this 'vitamin' company, offered Reckford a deal. This company wants us to be there private testing panel in exchange for money. Our town would select 3 people every month to test the vitamin products for quality and effectiveness. Many of us denied, but those who did go ended up moving away as soon as the testing was over. The first group seemed coincidental, the factory paid them well for testing and was much more than most of them were making in a week. As the demand grew for more testers, more kids straight out of high school were trying to join the panel. With the selection becoming much easier for C.E Corp. Many of our younger generations were leaving, and coincidentally moving as soon as their testing was over.
As far as we know, there has been some reaccuring deaths in the nearby woods of our small town. Brutal attacks against people in our town and injuries done by mysterious animal like creatures. Most of the time it has happened during the night, those who came back couldnt describe what attacked them other than snarls and screaching Those that were attacked during the day...well, only one came back so far, alive with their face torn apart and unable to talk.
Recently C.E Corp. let us know the factory wasn't going to need our help anymore and the product was officially approved. I don't know what this means but the last group they tested was mentioned as, "Coming home to present your city with a present, for all the help Reckford has provided." I took this as a surprised, The last 11 groups didn't end up coming home their last week...
((Reckford is a RP I like to replay, this version sits upon the mystery of the factory and what lies inside. The initial direction should be cannibalism, directly linked to the factory but everything else is undetermined. Vitamins could be a cover story or the truth, make something of it and throw it in. Please write in full sentences and detail your scenes as best as you can. The original story line follows zombies as a direct result of testing in the factory, so we can play a little off of that if need be))OPEN RP, please feel free to drop in ANY time and try to interact.
