Introduction

It's Time for Some Interesting Facts

1. On December 8th, 2014 at 3:00 PM an airplane crashed at Millennium Park in Chicago, Illinois. Everyone on board the plane was infected with a contagious pathogen which drove them violently insane.
2. Records of the pathogen date as far as two months prior to December 8th, 2014. All of these records come from documents of the U.S. government. These documents refer to the pathogen as "Lyssavirus B" or "Human Rabies".
3. Lyssavirus B is carried on the bloodstream. When a Lyssavirus B infected blood cell comes into contact with a healthy blood cell, conversion occurs. When infected blood reaches the brain, the infectee will become violent and begin to attack others, particularly by biting. Depending on the distance of the point of contact from the head, this may take as long as an hour.
4. There is a cure for Lyssavirus B. Only a few people know this, and even fewer people know what the actual cure is.
5. Lyssavirus B, unlike normal rabies, is not terminal. The infected can continue operating indefinitely.
6. Contrary to popular belief, Lyssavirus B does not result in necrosis.
7. Those infected with Lyssavirus B still feel hunger and thirst, and must eat and drink to sustain themselves. They are omnivorous, but require meat to remain active. Without meat, the infected enter a dormant state whereupon they become slow and lethargic, wandering aimlessly. An infected individual can last for about three days without meat before lapsing into this state.
8. Zombies cannot drive cars.

Toggle Rules

1. All characters must be feasible in a real world setting. No elves/furries/vampires etc. Costumes are fine, but your character is still a normal human underneath, with all the limitations of a normal human.
2. Standard roleplaying restrictions apply. No godmodding, no metagaming, no powergaming. Play nice and stay in character.
3. All posts are to be written in third-person present tense. No exceptions. Absolutely no exceptions. I cannot stress this enough.
4. Please, please feel free to suggest new locations. I mean it. Go crazy.
5. That is all.

Re: Breaking Quarantine

I hope the GM shows up sometime soon. It doesn't look like they're active

Re: Breaking Quarantine

I would like to join, please. I would not mind being someone's relative =)
No one has posted character sheets yet so I will wait for that, if it is alright.
I like the idea of the story too...

Re: Breaking Quarantine

oh right, jakco: I saw you put the "zombies" as omnivorous and must eat meat and drink water to stay fully active and will otherwise become slow and lethargic. How speedy are they until then and how slow are they afterwards? Because when combined with the 'does not cause necrosis' it sound like they'll be running on virtually human levels.

edit: wow this are horribly stated, these are meant to be straight questions and they don't sound that way at all, I'm sorry about that.

Re: Breaking Quarantine

I wouldn't mind, we can PM it out

Re: Breaking Quarantine

Yeah, I don't want to see unrealistic characters either. Would someone be willing to make an older brother to my female character?

Re: Breaking Quarantine

True that Bromander Shepherd, True that... if eljacko doesn't want to build a skeleton keep it as an unwritten rule of 5 special skills and 12 pieces of equipment? (on the generous side in my opinion).

Re: Breaking Quarantine

And training as well. If you want every one being normal that is. Otherwise you'll have 30 Batman's running around and 400 teenage girls who are great singers but are also expert free runners and martial artists plus have a pet ninja cat or some shit. Oh and I'm so in this btw lol What's the main plot? You said we're escaping from a quarantine zone right?

Re: Breaking Quarantine

Totally liking the sound of this myself as well

Oh yeah and from personal experience you might wanna limit starting gear, sadly some people try to start with more gear than the US Army.

Re: Breaking Quarantine

I'm in. Also I was wondering the same thing as Dora..


P.S: Hey Dora!

Re: Breaking Quarantine

I love a good apocalyptic story. Character sheet? Or are we just using the character tab provided?
