This does sound rather interesting to me...I'd love to join the group, will come up with a concept if it's cool :)

Sure, go for it.

Note that, as is the case with most of my games, "evil" characters are as acceptable as "good."

Please include with the concept whether you wish to start at the cave, or elsewhere (you'll be in the same story universe).  I'll give you the option of starting after the "Event," or just before it.

Heh, well, I'm not usually much for playing the bad sorts, I'll admit...

Diana Wingates seemed like your typical 'goth' girl...she got the clothes, the piercings, knew the lingo...but despite her seeming obsession with a subculture she actually possessed a very keen and analytical mind as well as a good dose of street smarts to boot. For a 19 year old girl now caught in a potentially terrifying situation her brains and resourcefulness are all she has to rely on now, with the world turned topsy-turvy. She sure choose a bad time to leave home....

(obviously not starting at the cave, was thinking of starting after the event)

Sounds like a plan.  At T plus how many days did you wish to start?

Offline schnookums

I was thinking maybe two or three days? Enough so that the reality is really settling in, but not so long after that she's gone 100% into survival mode.

Okay, that works.  That will be just about the time that order starts breaking down as a growing number of people realize the extent of the calamity.

You can start the thread over in NC-Exotic if you wish.

I've been reading the IC thread and may I say, that it's going well.

I want to join in. Here's my character concept.

Christina Flores, a 20-year-old Latina from a city nearby "the cave." She has the body of a running athlete, but wearing glasses, she has the brains of somebody who stuck their face in encyclopedias all day. She has the ability to keep her cool even when danger presents itself. This ability gets the job done without protest, but she may act without any orders.

She has been on vacation ever since "the event" happened. Now it's time for all the brains to work her way out of this situation.

(I'd like to start somewhere before the "Mexicans" arrive)

Sounds like a winner to me.

How many days after the Event do you wish to start?  Do you want your own story arc (thread) or to be placed somewhere you could bump into others? 

Offline Eliza

I guess two days after. I assume the Event is the cause of everybody's disappearance. I'd want to be put in a thread where I can bump into others.

As far as bumping into other PCs, the only fly in that ointment is that you're starting out of sync...the other threads picked up anywhere from six to fourteen days after the Event.  As far as bumping into NPCs, that I can arrange.  :-)

Offline Eliza

So the people coming out of the cave are the ones weeks after the Event?

Yes.  The thread with the cavers would be way out of sync with yours.

Hi,

 I'm intrigued, and the story seems really interesting. If you still have spots I'd be interested in joining up.

 I was thinking a young female gang member who had gotten busted and was in jail when things started happening.

 Would something like that work?

Absolutely.  I picture her starting at the Event...we could play out the jailbreak and all that follows.  Or she could start where Diana does...maybe be part of that gang.  Your choice...

If that is so, what can you arrange?

Depends.  What would you like to see happen?

Offline Eliza

Depends.  What would you like to see happen?

I guess something like a team of students forming up at a college...is that something you can work with?

Sure...I'll even put an ad up for that as a separate thread (but taking place in the same story universe).

Offline Eliza

Okay, cool.

I'm thinking starting from jailbreak, maybe meet up with some others afterwards, I'd like to play out everything goingto hell behind bars if that works for you :)

btw, I'll be out tonight, going to a concert, but I'll be back tomorrow to work on the character to send you her pertinent info :)

Oh, and I'm assuming the american west is our starting area?

That will work fine.  I figure you can start in California, and go from there.
