    Age of the dead

    Discussion in 'Archive' started by Mr Mr, Aug 2, 2011.

    Story
    Five years ago a biological weapon was accidently set off. It was thought the virus was quarantined but it was carried by a medical officer unaware he was immune. From then it spread rappidly. The cities went first, the small space and large populations allowed the virus easy hosts. The towns were next, the virus carried in by refugees fleeing the cities. In 48 hours britain was completely infested. Two weeks and the whole planet was a brain dead flesh hungering wreck.

    But humanity are a resourseful bunch.

    Those immune started fencing off their towns and clearing out any remaining zombies. What little was left of the millitary regrouped and holed up in their bases. Offering help to towns in need.

    Five years later the situation is a little better. The towns have small self sustained populations, some even risking the journey to trade with other towns. Eventualy a rumor started up of a cure, of an end to the zombies. It gathered enough wieght for people to start searching for it. So far no one has found any information of its where-abouts.

    Until now.

    ---------------------------------------

    The Game
    This is a Third-Person narrative story. Your starting place will depend on your characters faction but you will all be sent to the same place. The country its set in will be the UK for ease but the places (except cities) will be fictional). You may choose a race from the following.

    --------------------------

    Human - Immune to the disease.

    --------------------------

    Cyborg - Those with acces to millitary bases or government labs were able to steal technological enhancements for their bodys. These included robotic arms and legs, night vision eyes and various weapons.

    --------------------------

    Halfling - Some humans didn't have complete immunity from the zombie virus. Instead of becoming outright zombies they mutated, gaining the abilities of the zombie that bit them. Halflings are easily spotted by their pale flesh and pure black eyes. They know one day they will become zombies; but hope the day never comes.

    --------------------------

    Factions

    Black messiah - the remnants of millitary power. They have the better weapons then the havens.

    New ford haven - One of the towns east of the london. Citizens have custom made weapons (you can be creative but no over powered stuff).

    Explorer - For anyone who doesn't want to be millitary or a citizen. It just means your on your own and can start wherever, you'll still end up in the same place though.

    --------------------------

    Types of zombie
    Normal - Your average zombie, enough said.
    Runner - Identical to a normal zombie but able to sprint like an olypic athlete.
    Leaper - Walks on all fours, can leap between buildings and at people.
    Claw - Possess huge claws for hands and a back covered in spikes.
    Buster - Huge upper body, hunches like a gorilla. Will charge and pound the

    nearest source of flesh.
    Lash - Will use its long arms and tongue to grab from a distance.
    Boil - A fat bloated zombie full of acid.
    Skuttle - Weird bug like creatures. They posses the strange abilitie to re-animate dead zombies.
    The Pack - Beast like zombie with huge fangs. Runs on all fours, usualy found in groups of 5 - 10.

    And more I'll spring as surprises or boss fights :p
    --------------------------

    Rules

    1. No controlling others' characters, unless given special permission.

    2. No invincibility.

    3. Only join if you intend to write. If you have to leave, or if you fail to write, your character will be eaten horribly, or turned it into an NPC.

    4. Communicate with one another. If you're going to do something unexpected, PM me first.

    5. Don't spam with posts, or make them too long. (I had a problem with overtly long posts in my last RPG which didn't go so well. I plan not to make that error again.) Roughly 100-500 words will do per post.

    6. Please stay up to date with posts, and read the discussion thread.

    7. My word is law.

    Sorry I seem to have missed it off the template but your character needs to be in one of the factions.

    Name: Yu Ae Sook (Sooki to friends)

    Race: Korean, Hafling bitten by a Leaper
    Age:16
    Sex: Female
    Appearance: '4"10 thin with long black hair. Common zombie-like features(pale, black eyes) but unlike full zombie leapers she walks on two feet(but can leap extra far). She use to be very pretty before the bite.Now she is covered in bite marks and dark tatoos. (looks weak at first look but it very tough)
    Clothing: Always wears sunglasses to hide her black eyes (with them on she almost looks human) Often wears a black tank top (to show off tat's) and cameo cargo pants.

After that she was forced to leave home (her brother was destroyed) Ever since she's been wondering the earth alone, always searching for the cure, in vain of course. She suspects that she's going to be a full zombie at age 20, and she'll do anything to stop that from happening.

    Name: Clayton
    Race: cyborg! - Explorer
    Age: late 20's - he has stopped counting
    Sex: male

    Appearance: Clayton stands at 5'8" white male and tanned. his right arm is machine from the shoulder down and his right leg is machine from the knee down. he has a full beard and shoulder length hair which only gets washed when it rains, the fake skin on his cybernetic leg has over the years been damaged and torn so now parts of the metal casing can be seen through.

    Clothing/Equipment/Abilities: everything clayton owns is dirty. his cloths, boots, food are all covered in mud. he wears a torn blue singlet and a trench coat, jeans and army boots. he carries a 10 round semi automatic shotgun, although it is almost out of ammo, and is usually better at scaring off desperate men than killing the undead. also has an ammunition belt crossing his chest and a large pack on his back.

    Short Bio:
    he lost his arm in the army as a conscript soldier fighting against the zombies. a friendly grenade was thrown into his foxhole, Clayton threw it out but the grenade exploded just after it left his hand. the beard also hides shrapnel wounds from that day.
    He lost his leg some years later. after running out of ammo he was cornered by zombies who took a nice bite from his leg before being scared off by a 'zombie hunter'. Clayton cut off his own leg as soon as they left to stop the virus spreading through his body. The replacement was done is a back shed by a 14yo surgen, and needless to say it is not as top quality as his arm.

    he has been living on his own for some time now, drifting from one settlement to another trying to find a friend of his - and so far there has been no word

    Sepatar, Lost and Shadow - Those are fine. Sepatar, Lost I'm assuming your chars don't have a faction in which case you'll either have to head to newford haven when we start or make your own way to the 'cure'. Shadow Your a cyborg so I'm assuming your in black messiah.

    Just waiting for Earphone then we'll start.

    I have a question. Would it be against the rules to have someone play a character that's related to mine? That way I don't have to play two characters.
