Ok, it looks like we have plenty enough people for an RP. Things went a little faster than I expected so please be patient with me, we'll get something going soon.
The available characters are basically agents and people trapped within the infected zone.
The agents are people who were in contact with the virus but were affected in a different way than becoming a zombie. They posessd a rare dormant gene that was awakened within them giving them enhaced physical abilities such as strength, speed, and reflexes. There will small variances in the extent of their enhancement just like some people are stronger than others and some are faster. The virus also enhanced there sense of smell, sight, and hearing. It will be the same with their senses, some peolpe see, hear and smell better than others. Their enhancements will be somewhere in the range of 5x to 6x that of their previous capabilities.
The agents will wear lightweight high tech battle suits giving them the ability to manifest a wide range of weapons as well as giving them some defensive capabilities as well. The suits will also give each agent one unique ability that could be akin to a super power. I will leave each person's ability to be their choice.
The uninfected within the zone is an optional role for anybody that for some reason does not want enhancements. They can be armed with whatever weapons are at hand and may have learned skills of their own. They may be have been military or law enforcement, they may have been in the medical field, they may have been a homeless person that just knows how to survive with next to nothing. The choice will be yours.
I would also like to ask that everyone be able to post at least once a day as an agent. If this is a problem perhaps you could play as one of the uninfected. I may have one additional opening for such a person that I have been juggling around in my head, it would be Central Command.
Central Command would not have an active role. They would basically provide intel and maybe give the agents additional missions along the way. They would follow the team's progress via satelite and the additional missions could be almost anything. 'Zombies are converging on a mall, there may be survivors, check it out.' 'The nuclear(sp) power plant at where ever is going critical, stabilize the reactor.' You kind of get the idea.
I will try to get a character profile thread up at some point today and post the link here. Should any of you have additional ideas for types of characters you would want to play, just post them here or PM me and we'll see what we can work out.
If I have forgotten anything of importance, don't be shy, let me know.
I edited this post to be more specific about the enhancements obtained by the virus. Sorry if there was any confusion by my previous post.
