Zombie Apocalypse (Full)
« on: March 03, 2011, 06:34:03 AM »
So I had an idea for a RP but I wanted to make it more of a collaborative effort than one run by a storyteller. This thread is just a check to see if there might be any interest. If there's enough I'll begin adding a few more details.

Oh, and nothing below is written in stone so feel free to toss in a few ideas or suggestions.

Plot:
Long story short, the city has been overrun by zombies and a group of survivors have managed to barricade themselves within a huge mall, Liberty Mall. For thirty days now they've had everything they need to survive but supplies are growing thin, the electricity is looking to give out and the water, while still clean, is beginning to show signs of impurity. Meanwhile, the survivors stand at around fifty strong.

My Role:
My role is minimal as I don't want the players to rely too heavily on me. In general I'll just keep an eye on the RP, usher out players if they'd like and maybe throw in challenges for the survivors/RP'ers.

Role of Players:
Together the players control the environment, regular zombies and may introduce or control survivors which already reside within the Mall. Just don't go too crazy introducing non-player characters as there is a limit to how many are in the mall. Players will also take part in shaping the Mall community and how they deal with challenges. Basically, the players ARE the storytellers and will hopefully even go so far as to create their own missions. Although if nobody steps up to the plate, I'll try make something happen.

Restrictions:
- Try keep things semi-realistic...
- You may not introduce new types of zombies...
- You may not control/introduce NPC's which aren't part of the Mall survivor's group...
- You may not create threats within or to the Mall itself...
- And you may not injure/kill other player-characters without their express permission...
- Lastly and most importantly, absolutely NO pictures or references of Milla Jovovich. I saw enough of her in the fake zombie movie Resident Evil Afterlife: Ode to Milla to last me a lifetime...

These restrictions are all negotiable, except the last one. So feel free to PM me during the game if you're dying to try something which my pesky restrictions might be hampering.

Character Form:
Quote
Picture or Description:
Describe or post a picture of your character.
Known Name:
This is the name which the Mall survivors know you by. It doesn't have to be your character's real name. It can be anything from a name the character took up to a name the other survivors chose for them.
Reputation:
This is basically the equivalent of "history" in some RPs but it allows players to retain at least some secrecy while setting the possible tones others might address them with.
Known Strengths:
You may have a few hidden strengths if you like but in general this is what the other survivors count on you for. You can leave this empty.
Known Weaknesses:
These are the areas where the other survivors know you hold a disadvantage in. You may leave this empty as well.
Extras:
If you want to add something else which the other survivors or players might know of your character, throw it in here.
Allow Temporary Injuries:
Basically, will you allow me to injure your character through RP? Yes, or no. It might add a little more risk to the game but it's not critical.

Leaving and Returning to, or Joining, the Game:
I thought people could generally come and go as they please but with perhaps a few restrictions in mind. If you want to leave at least try usher your character out of the RP or PM me and give me permission to do so for you. And there will probably be a limit as to how many may be in the game at once so PM me before jumping in.

Linna! *tackle-hugs*

I love the characters so far but I hope we see a few men popping in as well.

Anyway, three's enough interest for me to get started on the finer details. I'll have them up later today.

"A mall. How original."
NAh, it look quite good. So, here's my character.

Hope I can use weapons otherwise...

Picture or Description:

Known Name: Gambit
Reputation: Considered a bit of a mad man, Shotgun is a bit of a wild gun, and will fire on anything he condones worthy of being shot. His tendency to use a shotgun (Hence his new moniker) normally gets him plugged into the front lines of any situation involving the zombies, and at this point, the only reason he has survived is his sporadic use of his firearm. Considered insane and not willing to deny it, he is one of the strangest survivors.
Known Strengths: While he talks allot, he doesn't talk allot... He will willingly debate or chat, but will never mention his past life to any of the most basic survivors, and considered those he has grown close to to be worthy of his story. He also has an odd knowledge of how weapons work, and can easily determine which weapon would work best for a given situation. No one really knows why though, which can sometimes get him questioned.
Known Weaknesses: As a fan of close-quarters firearms, when it comes to combat over more than 20 feet leaves him at a heavy disadvantage. He is also slightly stupid, which can leave him cornered or trapped more than once.
Extras:
N/A
Allow Temporary Injuries:
It's a zombie apocalypse. I can't NOT get injured! Go full throttle!

Guns are allowed but characters will likely be conserving ammo.

Okay, so I've finished putting together most of the details. Be sure to read the prologue everyone and let me know if it's alright that I included your character.

We have one other person who might join and along with Rachubka I think that's enough players (six). So I'll probably lock this and start the Role-Play thread once their profiles are in.

Yay!  Awesome sauce.  Can't wait to get started.  Will you be setting the stage and letting us just post where we will?  Or do you plan to plop us down in like a specific situation together?  Just curious, no worries if you haven't gotten that far.  I love the layout of the mall, can't wait to make it a reality.

I can't wait to see everyone's posts. And the first one. I'll create an initial post, with maybe a few hints thrown in for possible routes to takes, and the survivors will decide where to go from there. You can split up, create new threads, or stick together and see where that takes you.

Wah! Hope people are okay with waiting one more day. Can't do nuffin' until tomorrow. I'm a stinker.

There's definitely no rush.

Oh and if there are any other suggestions, questions, etc, post them in the discussion thread. I want to draw the focus off the interest thread for now: Zombie Apocalypse (Discussion Thread)

I think so. I'm going to give the other person a prod and see if they're still interested. If not, I'll change the title to "Space Open" or something along those lines.

Known Name:
Heather Gray
Reputation:
Heather is seen as one of the younger members of the group, though not young enough to be deemed weak and useless. Anyone not very far into their teenage years look to Heather for answers and guidance as she's not as intimidating or jaded as many of the other adults.
Known Strengths:
Basic first aid, very approachable and cooperative, athletic, can swing a good bat
Known Weaknesses:
Smallish frame doesn't make Heather very hardy, not much experience with leadership decisions, zero zombie apocalypse experience. :P
Extras:
At the time of the crisis, Heather was wearing athletic leggings with Ugg boots that go up to her mid-calf, a fitted white tank-top and a plain black T, and a green hoodie with the local University's logo on it. Her hair tied back into a neat ponytail. Despite being in a mall, it's still a very strange concept to pick clothes off of the mannequins. Seems fine with stealing cleaning products and swiping underwear out of necessity, though.
Allow Temporary Injuries:
Naturally.
