We can start out in different locations, but soon all arrive at the farmhouse. What happens after that will be determined during play - it's very open. I'd like to give everyone the chance to interact with others, form IC relationships, and begin mini-plots.
The overall idea is that there are very few people left and those that are have to try to survive and cope in a new world that begins as an anarchy. You can raid banks all you want but the money is worthless, and with all the corpses in most towns - not to mention the wild animals coming in to feed on them - those towns and cities have their own dangers.
I'll post again in the IC thread early tomorrow.
