I never totally enjoyed Zombie RPs at first, but i really got into them.
Btw, this is the thread to just chat in, and to say you want to join, etc etc. I will make an IC thread later, after enough people have joined.
Upon the streets of New York, a deadly virus has been spread. People are falling ill at an incredible rate, and hospitals are being filled with patients with the exact same symptons. Doctors and nurses know nothing of the illness, and label it as a strong case of the flu. Their diagnoses changes, as many of the patients seem to begin dying off.
The media grabs the story quickly, as rumors of mass death within one of America's largest cities occurs. However, even with the media coverage, there is still only whispers about how the disease was spread. People converse, and ultimately it is spread by the contact of blood. Where the disease originated? Still, none know. Only silly stories are told. Some say the government poisoned the water, yet other, more "religious" claim it to be the apocalypse, and all shall perish.
These are only stories, however, as researchers quickly try to find a cure before the entire population of New York fades away. However, how can so many be infected, if it's threw blood contact? The infected seem to have cannabalistic characteristics, several infected ones claiming to have been bitten, or scratched, beforehand.
As the funeral homes and graveyards are filled with corpses, something else happens...
The corpses, seemingly dead, seem to be reanimated. At first, their bodies show abnormal quirks such as a sudden twitch. By time the news of the virus gets to the owners of the funeral homes and many citizens, it is too late.
Many of the corpses are now walking upright and exhibiting animal-like behavior. Their only wish is to feed on human flesh. Those who sustain an injury from the infected, are no doubt infected themselves. It is only a matter of time before the virus manifests itself in the body. Those infected will not show symptoms until it is too late. By time the knowledge of the virus gets to the public, it may be too late...
What has come over this city? The remaining citizens brace themselves for the worst. They band together and plan to find a safe hiding spot away from the carnage. They gather up their belongings and evacuate areas which are deemed unsafe. Others plan to entirely evacuate the city. Who will survive?
For the RPers:
-Your sole purpose is to survive.
-Use any and all means necessary to get out of this alive.
-If you would like to "meet up" with another RPer, ask their permission. Don't just make it seem like all of a sudden you find each other and you two are in this together. Have something planned.
-Try to maintain some degree of realism. How likely is it that you magically find a rifle on the floor? How likely is it that you will also find bullets for said rifle. This doesn't mean you shouldn't find weapons around. Just try to make it remotely realistic.
I'm looking for, a few people to join. 4 or so, before I start. You can join whenever.
Since we have a whole section for character information, there really is no need for a character skeleton, so. Just let me know here if you're interested in joining.
In case you're willing to make a new character, here's a basic sign up sheet created for this RP.
At the time of the outbreak:
Optional character sheet credit goes to Griever. Last three paragraphs were editted/added on by Griever, and he also supplied the "For RPers" section. Thanks Griever! I'm always open to any suggestions anyone else has!
