This is set in the present day an outbreak of Solanum in a small town of Scrime (made up) has turned people into Zombies and the only way to survive is to find a cure which was made in the science laboratory where the out break started. You can play as a survivor trying to find out a cure or a zombie lord bent on making everyone a zombie. You can basically do what ever you like but your can't leave the city. The main point of this story is survive this isn't some movie where the hero paints the walls red. heroes end up dying so no fighting your way out of every fight hiding will help much more. The citizens of Scrime can be classed in five categories of infection.

Level one: no sign of Infection. (SBB means Since Being Bitten, NPC zombies are Level 4-5)

SBB = 1-3 days Level two: Slight signs, pale face, sometimes has thoughts of biting someone they know.

SBB = 4-5 days Level three: More likely signs pale face with a hint of green, has short periods of thoughts on biting random people, slight muscle jerks.

SBB = 6-8 days Level four: Considered lesser Zombie pale green skin and face, longer teeth, Jerky body, Mixed speech of groans and English, long periods of attacking/killing random people.

SBB = 9-10 days Level five: Full Zombie dark green skin and face, massive teeth, Speech of groans, only thinks about attacking and killing people, (no chance of coming back to human species.)

You can be revived by people from zombie form apart from Level 5 but you go into a coma for a few hours, you can be a human helping zombies thats what alliance is for anyway here is the character sheet if you got any suggestions about the story please comment.

Level of infection:
Former job:
Weapon if any:
Mode of transport if any:

No comment about the story since you didn't really give one, apart that there are zombies (though the different level of 'zombie-ness' is very interesting, and not something I've seen here before- although I'd swap for level two and three biting someone they know/someone random because in the 'early' stages I would imagine you'd prefer to eat strangers before your loved ones), but I do have a suggestion.

In terms of technical English that wasn't the best written synopsis, I found some of it quite hard to follow- I know a lot of people feel grammar etc. are secondary to the story but it [i]does[/i] turn a lot of potential players off, so you'll have a better chance of getting interest if you show you can write well.

Also, writing something like this-

my star wars one don't post there I'm no longer interested anyway

makes you seem very glib about your potential RPs, and won't inspire confidence in people that you will commit to your idea.

I've updated it a bit not sure I got a story yet early morning but i put friends before random because of you generally think about friends and family before someone you see in the street I probably still need to work on it. If you find any more problems or have any questions or suggestions feel free to comment

Hey do you have to be infected? i'd like to know because it could go quite a ways in making my character should i make one.

08/22/2007 9:05 PM

Sounds neat... I may be interested.

08/23/2007 12:02 PM

ok i'll make a character

Name: John Talbot
Age: 30
Lvl of infection: 1
Former job: clerk at a gun store.
Description. 6'4". 220lbs. he has a scar on his right arm that looks like a star almost. he has blue eyes and black hair. he's white and wears blue jeans and a white t shirt with a brown jacket over it.
History: John had kept himself busy at his gun store most of the time. Hunters and some gun nuts came in every so often to check out his wares and to buy something every once in a while. but when the infection came all hell broke loose. He was in his shop when it happend and hasn't been able to get out since. last time John tried to escape he got bitten and blew the son of a gun's head off. He bandaged the wound on his hand and stayed inside. He has no way out and is nearly out of the rifle ammo he uses to keep low amounts of zombies near him. He has no food and no nearby vehicles other than his truck which broke down. Now John sits on top of his roof trying to figure a plan of escape.
Weapons: mossberg 12 gauge shotgun, colt .45 pistol
Transportation: none
Alliance: any human survivors.

If it seems a little to gun ho i tried to tone him down by giving him no other resources. Is He good or should i tone him down more? And do these zombies run or stumble?

08/31/2007 9:37 AM

they mostly stumble no i like the gun ho style you can just imagine him with a cowboy hat, anyway since i got one char here I'll make mine,

Name: Grensen Rederick.
Age: 27.
Level of infection: 2.
Former job: Office Worker.
Description: 6'3" 210lbs has a bandage wrapped round his left arm. he wears a black hoody and dark blue jeans, white and a small bag full of a home-made zombie cure that keeps him at level two which must be administered every twenty hours.
History: Every day was just like the one before it for two years until the infection came he had a happy life but now it has come he spends most of his time using a telescope to watch the hordes of zombies and their spies and how he might be able to pretend to be a spy.
Weapon if any: A long kitchen knife and a sledge hammer attached to his back.
Mode of transport if any: His bike.
Alliance: Survivors and cops.
