There's an NPC named Boomer walking around that knows Tom West somehow. I'm leaving him for anybody that wants to use him. I just need Sol to find a safe place, so a Pikey with a large pipe seemed like a good idea haha

Also, if anybody wants to partner up with Sol in Chapter Three, just let me know. He'll just be hanging around in the slums until then :P
At first, I was all Image but then I serioused Image and was totally like Image

I have deicded!.........should probably mention what. Well you thought you were all clever giving your characters firearms at the start of the story and I say HA! Good things come to those who wait. If you translated what Henry shouted at the soldiers, (Not sure if any one did.) Youll see I hinted at my plan. I also threw a clue in his biography. I shall put it into action as soon as the infection gets out of hand. Anyway to my decision, the Sig Sauer p226 Tactical (.40 S&W) used by British police forces and either the G36C (British metro police) Or the L96A1 (British Army). I'm leaning towards The G3 considering it's been my favortie gun for as long as I can remember. You have been warned....

Just remember folks, the RP is not about one-upping eachother's firepower or killing more infected than the next man. It's about creating a good story, and if that means giving your character a firearm so be it.

Just remember, even though most modern firearms are easy to work out the basics, a newbie can VERY EASILY jam it by not correctly loading a magazine, not pulling the bolt back far enough (insanely common in those not used to military rifles, trust me on this one), not to mention scarcety of ammunition, the overpowering urge to fire full auto when even slightly scared, excited or paniced, the lack of any form of marksman training meaning that only one in ten shots will probabl hit close to their mark. Literally giving a gun to a completely untrained individual is only slightly more dangerous than giving them a nice, simple, plain old axe.

Just play it realisticaly, and problems will not arise. With me, you, and a surprise army of undead around your next corner :)

Guns are cool, but I think good old fashion blunt trauma is the best way to go. I'm sure Sol will end up using a gun eventually, but his main weapons are gonna be pieces of wood/debris and the straight razor, I think

Story point: Could I ask one of the players who hasn't posted yet to include a section where they see a military patrol get overrun by a large group of infected, probably after a large fight where they attempt to save civilians. The crowd of infected will then disperse in smaller groups about the city.

The first person to say in OOC that they will do this scene will be the one to do it to help avoid duplications. So check the OOC and if nobody has said they will do it, say YOU will do it and crack on!

Also...

Just to let you know nici-kitty has had to pull out due to actual real life commitments, and vio-lance has obviously not posted at all. Both these characters are now under my control which leaves 2 spots open. If you know of any other player who might be interested in joining please let them know so we can make 10 again! :D

The next chapter will begin next week Monday/Tuesday, so get posting!

Chapter 3 - London Burning

The next chapter is up! Sorry for it being a day late, but probably a good job to give Deathfromabove time to post - awesome post by the way, exactly what I wanted.

The scene is set and all the city is in complete panic. Although soldiers will still be about they have entirely lost control, resorting to barricading themselves away or using brutal tactics to stay alive. The streets are overrun with paniced civilians, car accidents as people try to escape, homicidal soldiers, police and civilians, looters, loose animals, and not to mention the rapidly growing number of infected. It's pandimonium and the place is far from quiet - it's up to you to make your way through it all and survive the best you can.

By the end of the chapter you need to have:

- Wandered the streets and somehow managed to stay alive
- Meet up with me and my group by the end of the chapter.

You may have noticed my band is made up of the abandoned characters of the RP. I'll be posting regularly throughout this chapter to give people a chance to meet up with us, but if you can see a way to crowbar your character into joining the group feel free to do so.

The next update will be around Saturday 12/02/11 - just over one week to post. Please post as much as you can in this chapter as it's probably the most varied and traditional 'panic' situation of a zombie apocalypse, and needing to set the scene is important!

Okay, have at it :D
