Title: The Real-Life Zombie Survival RP Sign-up/Rules Thread.
Post by: Mr. Consideration on July 13, 2008, 03:26:24 am
This is the sign-up for my Zombie RP. You must read the rules, and follow them. Rules are up for discussion.

A nice, healthy, gigantic starter post.


The RP, for those too lazy to read the RP Planning Thread, centres around this Forum, a Zombie Apocalypse, and your own survival.


Essentially, players play as themselves, informing other Forum Members how they are managing to cope during the coming storm. Posts will be in a diary, or conversation-esque style. Remember, you are not RP-ing in the traditional sense:

"John lies low under a bed in his room, horribly aware of his front door being open, too frozen in fear to make a sound to check if the Undead have wandered into his abode." This statement would not be applicable; remember, The Apocalypse is Real. You wouldn't have time to type during any actual encounter, nor would you have the inclination. Nor would you refer to yourself in the third person. However, your Internet Access, and this site, will remain up because of magic.

In contrast:

"I've had a ****ing nightmare of a day. I left the door open and a whole bunch of Zombies wandered into my suburb. It took me about 15 hours to pluck up the courage to go downstairs and close the door. I've got this awful feeling one got into my house. I can't do this. I need to prepare my house, but I can't do it quietly and there are Zombies all over the neighbourhood. As soon as they see me, I'm ****ed."

Additionally, you must remember you are playing as yourself in a realistic manner. You can't run outside and kill a hundred Zombies and your insane mother with a Lawnmower. You don't lead a strike force to gloriously retake your city. You don't discover a cure. The limitations imposed on your character are the limitations you yourself have. Not in good shape? That is a shame, but at least you'll feed more than your share of Zombies; Good Luck with running. Not Firearm proficient? Then I imagine you can't snipe at Zombies from your high-rise flat. Don't know how to drive? You don't make your getaway in an SUV covered in knives.

However, any skills you do have your character, who is you, will also have.

Some degree of the Conversation may be discussing Zombie behaviour or weaknesses. Remember, the Apocalypse is Real.

The 'Zombies' in question will be taken from the canon of the Zombie Survival Guide/World War Z.

The Zombies:

There will be a short introductory conversation wherein the first outbreaks of the disease are discussed...then, there will be a time-skip to a period where it has begun to spread to other countries. The true nature of the threat is unknown until late in the day to all of you. It is assumed, later into the apocalypse, that all non-playing members are dead.

I'd like for this to be a very dark, creepy RP. Nothing is taboo.

Now sign up.

Alwayswatching, you can act as if you returned home when we do the time skip.

Just because you actually are in the camp doesn't mean you need to unrealistically extend the time you would be there.

               Just curious, but can I pretend that I'll be moving to the rural areas when the outbreak is announced on TV? Cause that's what my family would likely do in situations like these. And since I'm not completely independent yet, there's a very high probability that I'd go with them. Unless of course if the outbreak starts here at my area. Then I'll have no chance but to wait it out since I live near the center of the city.

               Just asking.

Only once it becomes entirely clear what the outbreak is. You didn't move when SARS was announced, did you?

And no, I'm not kidding. We really DID come up with a plan.

Not guns.

I collect weaponry from various locations and eras.

So currently my walls have plenty of different sorts of swords. Sooner or later its going to have all kinds of shields axes flails and the like because i found somewhere that sells them cheap. So i try to get one a month.

Whats more it bothers me that they just sit and collect dust so i sharpen,shine and even learn to use them. I am even attempting to learn to blacksmith..as a hobby.

Not something you find in an everyday house  :P.

The cannon comment is a chuckle because i want to get an older one. But they are far to expensive and i don't have that much space.

Lizard, you're going a little overboard with this. We're trying to be realistic, not dramatic.

The disease is only just cropping up in Africa. We'll fast forward when it spreads.

Although Houston would be one of the first places, because richer infected people may be sent to MD Anderson.

Just chalk it up to exaggeration and rumor.  The first stages of the virus are similar to fever, so it can be expected that there would be a lot of false alarms.

This is exactly what should be posted in the OOC thread.  You know, this one.  I'd delete that post in the rp thread.

Aside from that, you're confusion is understandable if you never read World War Z.  African Rabies was the name assigned to the virus by the media because people got bitten and latter on tried to bite other people, kind of like rabies.  After all, would you believe the dead were rising if all you had to go on were loose accounts?

I'd like to remind everyone to read the rules!

The African Rabies is the faux-discussion topic.

Neoadept has it right, I was expecting that I'd mention spreads. It doesn't cover the world like wildfire. It lulls, people forget about it and it picks up pace until, eventually, it does spread like wildfire. Alwayswatching was fine, because it was a case of 'I heard' and it wasn't a major outbreak. Stating there have been cases in more important places like Tel Aviv interrupts the flow. The disease, essentially, spreads rather slowly, and lingers in the Sudan for a while....giving more than a few people time to get infected and fly to other countries. The real 'spread' starts when we skip ahead. The idea is that no-one sees it coming.

My assumption was that it was OK because in the story, you didn't notice the news story until it actuallly already spread to those places.

I hate to sound naggy, but people are being hugely unrealistic.

No-one would have stockpiled anything yet. For gods sakes people, it's incredibly clear that most of the players know the disease isn't going to peter out. Remember, your supposed to have hope (and most likely believe) that they will develop a cure.

You're getting an unfair advantage over those who are remaining realistic.

We always stockpile stuff. We've been doing so since the days of my grandparents. :)

After all, my family's gone through a civil war, a volcanic eruption that wiped out a large percentage of the country's harvest and several major price hikes. And we never had to worry about where to buy reasonably priced food even a single time. :)

My family always plan ahead. ;)

Glacies, if you happen to stumble upon this take a look at the first post in this thread. It describes everything that these zombies are supposed to be/able to do.

The zombies couldn't have been running after you since they can't run.

I think having a definitive list of survivors would kill immersion....

Sorry I haven't been posting much, I've felt like I've caught a little African Rabies myself these last few days.

EDIT: Dog, I don't think you'd know that information..

I would hope they would at least tell the senior NCO's in the army how it gets transmitted and how to kill the buggers, espessily if they are heading to a foreign hotzone :D. But your the boss if you want it out I'll change it.

African Rabies is the disease Max Brooks made up as the disease that turns people into Zombies.

What's great about this one is that you can drop in and out whenever you like, just because of the nature of it.  It would make perfect sense for there to be a long pause between posts.
