No one knows how it happened.
One day everything was normal. The next, all hell broke loose. As best anyone can figure, it started somewhere in the southern United States in late July, 2012. The media didn't make much of it at first. Everyone thought it was just a resurgence of the avian flu, or SARS. The CDC said that it was an irregularity, an airborne mutation, but nothing they couldn't handle.
By the time we learned otherwise, it was too late. Friends, loved ones, co-workers, all began to change, growing numb and cold and anemic. Then, they turned comatose, like they were dead. In the advanced stages of the disease, they lost their memories and personalities. The virus turned them all feral, little more than animals, desiring only to feast on human flesh.
Things went to shit quickly after that. The government declared martial law, but the virus simply spread too fast. Entire cities were lost within days. Communication began to break down as power stations were overrun and neglected. Hundreds of millions of people either succumbed to the plague or died at the hands of the ravenous zombie hordes.
Somewhere in the Nevada desert, on the outskirts of what was once Reno, a small community of survivors has flourished. Residing in a fortified Costco warehouse (it has thick walls, after all; limited points of entry that can easily be barricaded; and enough food and water to last a handful of survivors a few decades), they make their stand. Will they last long enough to give humanity a new chance? Or will they, too, succumb to the zombie scourge?
Little do the survivors know that hiding among their ranks is a bloodthirsty Zombie.
While it looks and acts human, it is, in truth, anything but. So far, it has managed to avoid detection. However, driven by its relentless hunger for juicy, juicy brains, it is only a matter of time before it strikes!
As if that wasn't bad enough, another one of the survivors is an Infected
, a carrier of the virus who has not yet progressed into the final stages of the disease. It is probably only a matter of time, though.
Will the survivors be able to root out the zombie(s) amongst their ranks? Or will the undead slay them all?At the beginning of the game, there will be (1) Zombie and (1) Infected. The Zombie does not know who the Infected is, and the Infected does not know who the Zombie is. There will be (14) Survivors, including (1) doctor, (1) nurse, (1) scientist, (1) military veteran, (1) survivalist, (1) psychic, and (2) immune.
The game will start shortly with the Zombie feasting on a NPC. Until then, feel free to get into character, put up a quick bio or introduction, or whatever. At this point, no roles have been assigned
