[SU/OOC] Z-Day New York

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Incognito on Mon May 10, 2010 3:43 pm


My name is Parker T. Jacob and I’m a Private in the Army. I’m writing this for two reasons, one because I don’t have any friends or family left, and two so if I die at least I leave a nice little death note of these past few weeks.
Three weeks… It’s been three weeks since the infection first appeared. Where it originated from exactly is an unknown, but most scientists agree somewhere in Africa. Ships then carried it to most of the major cities in the world. We still aren’t sure what was the carrier, most people assume it was rats, but there is no proof since most animals seem unaffected by the virus.
London was the first city hit but nobody truly understood what was happening until it was too late. It started off as a few minor incidents, things like increased suicides, aggravated assaults, murders, but then people started changing. After that it didn’t take long. Armed forces were mobilized in order to contain the infection but the order to kill on sight came too late to help anybody. The entire city of London was overcome by what most described as the Living Dead. Zombies. Not only had London fallen within a week to the merciless infection, but it only took two weeks for the enormity of Europe to be consumed.
It’s been another week and America is next on the chopping block. Hundreds of thousands appeared on the first day, the infection swarming across the country like wildfire. Even with its fully mobilized military might, America seems to halt the endless hordes of bloodthirsty humans.
I’ve killed children, mothers, fathers, teens… any denomination of human you can possibly think of but now these all blended together to just become ‘The Horde’. It’s ironic, how for all of history humanity has struggled to unite and now, faced with complete union, we desperately fight against it.
I have to stop writing now; the Captain is called to man the guns. I don’t think it will matter much longer, we’re running low on ammo and I only have 13 more rounds in my rifle. We’re dead man walking, just like the enemy in front of us.

Creators Notes: This will be conducted over the website’s IM chat, since it’s the only way to incorporate the real-time actions and intense combat I want to portray.

A team of U.S. soldiers and police officers is hold up in the fortified Public Library in New York City. Sandbag bunkers littler the front steps and wood, iron, steel have been nailed and welded over the windows. The remaining forces gather on the steps to make their final stand against the ravenous undead hordes.
Or will this be their last stand? A surviving student knows about an underground maintenance tunnel beneath the library due to having worked there over one summer. If they can all get out of the library alive, it will be a struggle to survive and get to the Natural History Museum where another group of well-armed soldiers, survivors, and police have fortified a position and created a mini-town complete with shops, a hospital, and places to sleep as well as an armory containing enough ammunition to combat an army. The only problem is the Museum is an estimated 44 blocks away.

These are things your character can do. They include things like fast-reload, exceptional eyesight, being able to run extremely fast for short periods of time etc etc. They are all physical abilities of some sort and do not rely on knowledge.

These are things your character excels at. For example, he may be a medic, perhaps he knows how to hotwire any vehicle, or maybe he is a computer genius. Perhaps your character is a gun expert and knows exactly how all guns work and how to unjam or fix them.

Your character can have any ‘type’ of armor, as long as it exits in reality and your character can, within reason, acquire it. For example, it’s a given that a police officer or military man would have a Kevlar Vest. However, it’s doubtful that anyone but a police officer would have Riot Armor and it’s doubtful anyone but the military man would have Plate Assault Armor.

This can include Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Hunting Rifles, Light Machine Guns or anything else that may be bulky or slightly unwieldy. THE WEAPON MUST EXIST. I cannot stress this enough. I will be reviewing all weapons listed for authenticity before I approve applications. Also, no overpowered items like a grenade launcher… Note: Civilians do not start with a Primary Weapon. Also, you can drop your Primary at any time in order to gain Sprint ability so you can flee from danger. You can find another Primary at gun stores, crashed military vehicles, dead soldiers… etc.

Technically this should only include pistols, but I’m widening the range to Pistols, Sub Machine Guns, Shotguns, or anything else small and compact. THE WEAPON MUST EXIS. I will be reviewing all weapons listed for authenticity before I approve applications.

Anything you can beat shit with. But if I see someone list ‘Sword’ or ‘Katana’, they better have a damn good reason why their character has one. And don’t tell me your character bought one off the Internet because most of those aren’t meant to cut through real flesh and will break if used to do so.

These are items your character happens to have handy. It’s best to pick items that benefit your Advanced Skill. A medic would want a med-kit, and a mechanic/hot write ability would want a multi-tool. Items that compliment your skill will decrease your skill’s ‘cast’ time by 50%.
