Hopefully, you're already familiar with the two movies 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later. Here's the premise of the RP, based around the movies:
Not many years into the future, America is in a state of utter chaos and civil war. Across the pond, England is being ravaged by a conflict of it's own. Another civil war, of sorts. The 'virus' has spread far and wide across the island, rendering nearly 80% of the population mindless, blood-thirsty animals.
Here's where we come in. Small groups have been traveling across the land, gathering here and there for safety. The last refuge stands in Dover, a large port city on the English Channel. The chief stronghold here is Dover Castle. This safe haven is the goal of all travelers who seek solace from the horrors of the countrysides. Our own characters have both been ravaged by the disaster, losing everyone they love. After both experience particularly horrifying circumstances in which our respective companions die, we find each other. And so the RP begins.
I figure I'll have them start off in downtown London we'll gradually RP our around, etc. I'm leaving the story open-ended from there to allow my partner to add on to the story. As for my partner, I'm leaving it open to any sort of human female. I'd like to have someone capable of lengthy and interesting posts, just so we don't get bored. I'll leave the character outline here and post my own tomorrow.
