This is a free-form free-for-all. Lets keep the number to what could be expected to fit in a full sized pick-up truck. About 3 in the cab, and 3 in the back.

The kid's sex and age has yet to be determined, feel free to add that detail.

If the number of players are met, then people could add a one post senerio taking the role of zombies or other hazzards, then the players can figure out how to deal with it. When a oppertunity presents itself.

*raises hand* Here as per request....I was intending to join anyway:D
So this zombie holocaust started the night before, I'm guessing......is it a virus-zombie or night-of-the-living-dead-zombie?


The kid's sex and age has yet to be determined, feel free to add that detail.


Ok, here's her character sheet.


Name: Sharon Emerson
Race: Human
Age: 13(figured she needed to be young to be titled "that kid")
Hair: Medium length, blonde, pulled in a ponytail
Eyes: Dark blue
Skin: Slightly tan, freckled
Weapon: Ninja sword thanks to an older brother who was obsessed with ninjas
Story/Background:

Sharon was an average kid. Early this morning, breaking glass woke her up, and she ran downstairs to find her parents as zombies. She panicked and ran upstairs, being followed, and dodged into her older brother's room(doesn't live at home anymore), and grabbed a sword from his collection of ninja-stuff and managed to kill them.
She flipped out, and saw that there were more zombies everywhere.
Finally, she calmed down, and figured all the neighbors had become zombies, until she saw the next door neighbor being attacked by a zombie, and ran out to help.

Yes it started the night before, and then quickly spread into the morning. As for cause, that has yet to be determined. Perhaps there is a former European Special Ops soldier here in America, on a special police exchange assignment that can tell us something more...

hint... hint :P

However, they are crossd between the slow zombies on Night and the faster ones on Dawn of the Dead... but full on sprinting *rolls eyes*, that uses a bit more grace and dex a zombie wouldn't have...

Thus far... Perhaps a T-virus outbreak did cause it and they evolve as they eat flesh... well see as it progresses. Only expectation I have is for fun a slight bit of realism. No elves and shit... this is normal earth with zombies on the loose.

Let us not forget the mystical powers a young lady has concerning zombies and double bladed battle axes ;)

AA did a good job with her background to work it with what i took liberties with. If anyone else wants to join, do a background of the morning and end it with the oppertunity for us to meet up, in character.

This is a freeform so character sheets are optional (i think... been a long time since RP), since AA took the time, i'll do the same.

Name: Frank Black
Race: Caucasian
Age: 33
Hair: Dark and slicked with grease like some "Outsiders" reject from '64
Eyes: Green
Skin: pasty-ass irish white
Weapon: At this moment... 2 tons of American steel and an Uzi.
Story: A pissed off tow-truck driver/ mechanic. Lost wife and kid 5 years ago to a car wreck. Hasn't recovered yet, with a obvious manifested grudge for everything, especially kids.

Remeber most of all, not only is this a RP, it's also a co-operative story-telling. Take liberty to describe the next scence.

For instance, AA as Sharon could now strap on her seat-belt then describe frank as he barrels down on the zombie, from her perspective. Blood splashing on the widsheild... Intitiating dialog both her responses and franks responses... etc.

Take liberties with each other as the story progresses. I've noticed with RP before, if every body only concentraits on their actions, the storyline can become jumbled and confusing at times.

But most importantly, use imagination and have fun!

Yes you did A_A, please don't misunderstand me and think i see it otherwise :)

What i mean to express... see how i intereact with your chacter... slap your hand when your playing with the radio... tell you to go get the items in the back, then discribe what your characters does... i'm just saying you can do that with Frank as well

Not only RP a character, but build a story together. I left it open for you to take over. Get into your character and describe what happens next from your perspective. If you want to take a liberty with my character do it... does Frank light up a smoke, does he drive like a nut...

The role-playing comes in when you describe a scene through your perspective, or the other characters actions through your chacter, building them together.

Who know what happens next, what frank does, what Sharon does... make it up, make frank up as you go along as well...

Co-opertive story telling. Not only making up a character, but helping me make up one too...

You see what i mean?

Guys, be sure to hit refresh before posting in the RP thread. I could be wrong but it seems to display from your cash what was on their last time you looked... that might explain why i missed AA's 2nd response... i also came to check if the were any new responses and seen that some of my editing in my last wsn't showing... hit refresh and it came up...

Hi. Can I jump in? :)

Lich_Nexus
01/21/2005 6:43 PM

Sure Dangrel... but please wait a bit. I'm not sure if Joey wants to play the skating kid yet. I asked if he'd rather play something else, then to do something different that a SWAT member since we already have a SWAT cop and a former Army Ranger.

So hold that thought until i know if he wants it. If he don't then please, take it over.

Keep in mind Joey, that i'll be giving the skate kid the .22 guns and some home made cherry bomb grenades, so you can blow some shit up to.

Ooh aah zombies. This might be interesting. Though I don't really care if I'm a human or zombie. If you need some zombie head honcho, fine by me. Or maybe some psychotic criminal who loves to kill, fine by me.
