I'm certainly interested. Was there some 28 Days Later inspiration behind this perhaps?

Mnn... Would you rather pictures be realistic, drawn, anime...ect? It doesn't matter one bit, but I'm just wondering.

Also.... Hiya Vitamin!

Aye a fair bit of 28 days in the flavour, but the setting is quite different in that it's a world struggling to cope and ultimately failing, as well as the plot for the characters will also take them on very different paths to anything in 28 days.

In terms of characters I'd prefer real pictures: it'll be a fairly realistic RP. If you just have to do anime though I won't stop you ;)

EDIT: I'm holding out on creating my own character to see what you all come up with, so whatever I play can fill in the gaps!

Jerred nice to see you again, and yes you are fond of playing other people's characters (cough cough, torque) but I don't mind because he's more of a filler, and you play him well, anyway ive strayed off topic. I'm very interested, I've partcipated in several zombie survival projects that all seem to die a horrible death I believe vio was in one with me....(grenades poping from nowhere 0.o)
Ah yes so I'd like to be in this one and will have a charecter submitted shortly.

Ah! Yes, hello, smrtazz13! Good to see you again! Well, I'm not going to carbon copy one of my characters from that particular roleplay, but I will sort of...fit her... to this one. I do hope she's approved, even though I'm quite skeptical.... Though, I am a lot of the time.

But yes, good to see you again!

Yeah i've done a few zombie survival RP's before on L4D411 (left 4 dead fansite), entitled 'Elmo's RP' if you want to check it out. Elmo is my forum name there before you ask :) All bar the last went down a damned storm, so this should do pretty well I've got no doubt. Now, lets be looking at the submitted characters...

Syn: Use the character tab please! :)

Just so you all know I'm in tomorrow but out of the city over the weekend. When I'm back on Monday I'll possibly post up the first part of the RP depending. Possibly Tuesday.

Should get time to start the RP tomorrow. Remember to check this OOC thread regularly to see any plot direction I might give out to help steer the RP somewhat. Best of luck!

Chapter 1: Dissolution

In this chapter we'll be introducing our characters, taking them through am entire single day. The country has not yet fallen to pieces but the cracks are starting to show even more. You can meet up with other players if you wish, but all 6 characters will not form a 'group' till about chapter 3.

Have fun!

I was going to have Sol run into trouble with the law early on, and I read Thomas was being transfered. I left it open so they could interact if you'd be okay with that. If not, just let me know and I'll have them continue on without him to the prison. Sorry if I overstepped my bounds by bumping into your storyline Jerred. Just let me know whats up :)

No problem at all, good inclusion to have them meet early on. It'll be a passing encounter and no doubt the two characters will meet again later, but I like it!

Just so you all know I don't mind players occasionaly speaking for other characters and getting them to do actions, go places etc etc - as long as it's in character, is within reason and makes sense. What deathfromabove just did is an example of something that's totaly acceptable. It sure helps things move along quicker too.
