Obligatory Zombie Apocalypse Survival RP


Gene Inari

Recommended Posts

RP Name/Title: [To be determined]

Style: Forum

Setting: Modern day inner-city

Description: As the title suggest, a bunch of normal people trying not to become a part of the undead horde

Goal: Generally getting from point A, to point B, to point C, with plenty of zombies thrown inbetween.

Player count: 4 to 6

Other stuff: I'll get to elaborating on the finer details later, like what kind of zombies we'll be facing, but two main things for right now: 1. Anthros only. 2. No characters with military backgrounds.

Is this setting like the game based Left 4 Dead? Also would it involve boomers or hunters? Just curious about it.

Fletching Anthro's only. ugh, do hybrids count?

What do you mean, hybrids? Give me an example.

That's the thing I'm debating on, if I make it L4D, it means having to fight hordes of zombies head on, rather than running or avoiding them all together. However, I'm debating on how aware and quick the zombies will be. I'm deciding between L4D styled zombies and zombies from this game called Dead Frontier, which still has hordes and the like, but small scale interactions are different from L4D and there are different 'special' zombies as well.

AS in, half Anthro half human. Or, Half Jackle half human, literally, like form the waist down jackle , waist up human?

Nope, sorry. Has to be straight anthro for this one. Humans and anthros together doesn't make sense to me outside of futuristic, sci-fi stuff. It was going to be humans only or anthros only, I went with the latter.

I was hoping for one, maybe two, more people to participate. Get some more planning out on my end, then get it started.

Wasn't sure since I didn't see a bio from you.

Also, for the sake of everyone's familiarity, I'm going with L4D styled zombies.

Well I'm redoing the request on my zombie RP. Posted up the discussion and got zero follow-up on it, and it's a little silly to RP by myself so...

Okay people. Its time I decided finally run a proper Zombie Apocalypse campaign.

If you have played Left 4 Dead: http://www.l4d.com/

And if you have read the Zombie Survival Guide: http://en.wikipedia...._Survival_Guide

Or if you haven't, consider this game both educational to how to properly survive a Zombie Apocalypse, and fun. The plot is simple.

Plot:

You are all folks who live in the middle of New York city. You are associated with each other for this reason: You all believe zombies exist. No, you know they exist. You have read historical documents recovered and researched by medical doctor Max Brooks, expert writer of the so-called fictional zombie. Though Brooks was considered a crazy hack-job by the historical and scientific community, you know he is right. You all read his work, and at some point, you saw it in person.

At Mercy hospital, the first real outbreak occurred. Nothing more than a Class 1 outbreak, it seemed. But still, you all called each other your cell phones and immediately prepared for the planned emergency. You gathered, you began checking supplies, weapons, planning possible escape routes from the city, everything you have exercised, practiced shooting, and studied books for survival and teamwork has been preparing you for this day...and then it stopped. Strangely, a SWAT team went in and took care of the situation. Though a rumor on the internet claimed those were actually NAVY SEALS.

According to the news, the Chief of Police reported it was just several psychotic patients causing a riot. Several nurses were killed and others were taken into custody and never seen again. Was a it a cover-up? Probably. It has been suspected that the cause to zombification is a secret known to some governments, but only recently. However, that day, it didn't seem to get passed a class 1. So you all went back home, got yelled at for leaving work early, and treating this as a drill. And you did well. Still, you couldn't help feeling that this was a small sample of things to come. For if just one infected person escaped that hospital...

Enemies will include Zombies, of course. This is a game of long-term survival, wits, team dynamics, and action. Cause your dealing with the fast-zombies here!

Rules on Character Creation:

The setting: New York City in the year 2010.

Occupation: I will allow only one military-based character and one law enforcement based character. Nobody may play a Federal agent. Sorry, but I insist we don't over-populate the team with Rambo, James Bond, or Alex Foley types. The idea is most of you are everyday people who have limited training and experience.

Allowed weapons: Firearm Laws of New York are convenient for survivalists. So think about what you can legally get as a weapon that would allow you to survive. If your looking for anything beyond what civilians normally carry, its up to you to research how you can get it and if its legal for your character to have it. Then PM me to request it: Examples include silencers, explosives, assault rifles, automatic weapons, etc...

Remember, this isn't the type of RP where you can just start out armed to the teeth like the Arnold Schwarzenegger. You'll have show that you know you can get it, and how. Most weapons have to be legal. The exceptions I make are Molotovs and some house-hold chemical made explosives (about as good as a small pipe-bomb or a flash-bang). Make sure to think about what weapons would be good for this situation.

Ammo: Be realistic about how much ammo you use before you have to reload. I won't about worry total ammo supplies unless dramatically appropriate.

Advice: Refer yourself to the Zombie Survival Guide and (you can find it at your local library) if you want the gist of this setting. See if you can play or at least watch some videos about Left 4 Dead, however, to get the idea about what your facing. This will be important for weapon selection too.

Zombiefication: Nobody will turn into a zombie from a simple bite or scratch. Only when your character dies horribly from too many zombie attacks does your character zombify.

Merged those two topics for you.

A better move to kick things of is to start the RP thread itself. A discussion thread will never draw as many viewers to take a look as the actual roleplay thread.
