We few, who struggle to live...

Apocalypse it may be called, but maybe not. World it is in which you try to survive, how will it go is up to you. Dead roam as if alive, infection awaiting your smallest mistake. One wrong move and you may just end up like the rest...dead or worse.

Introduction

Almost any living being would love to see normal, old world again, it won’t happen. At the beginning people cared little for new infection spreading, all expected it would be simply contained and dealt with, all heard about Panacea being created, all hoped for things to end good. It was far from good, infection was surprisingly subtle, before anyone noticed in all countries existed at least one infected. Infected ones were beginning of fall, disease at first seemed to be harmless, minor headaches, coughing and tiredness were first symptoms to be recorded. Later came fewer, and vomiting. Approximately half of infected ended in hospital, slowly dying, antibiotics given earlier stopped working. All that hospital staff could do is watch them die, but it was far from end, infected once dead, raised to live again. Isolating one place is easy, but hundreds? Not to mention infection spread like wildfire, Army could not contain it. Each hour meant more dead, infected and more chaos. Now world is broken, falling apart, though past anarchy and initial chaos. Most people dead or infected, some trying to survive, you are one of them.
How will your story end?


Few things worth noting :
1. Zombies are usually strong (dead grasp) and slow (stiff muscles), but that may change with time ( or with player if one of you chooses to play as more lively/smarter infected – for example once you get bit you show new symptoms and so on…), other than that…zombies tend to try and bite you, so be careful.
2. Incubation period is usually between 12-24 h, symptoms are fewer, coughing and vomiting blood. Though Symptoms may differ – For example some lose sight as infection progresses.
3. Surprisingly medicine can slow down infection for a day or two at best.
4. Once you’re bit, you’re infected ( Some cases were different though…), saliva also poses danger to uninfected.
5. Ammunition is scarce, so use guns wisely (gunshots and loud noises attract horde as usual)
6. Character sheet can be simple :
Example below :
Name :
Gender :
Hair color/style :
Age :
Height :
Weight :
Clothes
Misc :
Personality :
Biography :
7. Disease is simply called infection cause few know something...anything about it

If you're interested in playing or have questions pm me, you can also write in chatroom :)
P.S : I'm new to roleplay so don't be surprised if I make some kind of mistake, tell me if something bothers you and if possible give me some advice, opinion about my writing, also I'm student so my time is somewhat limited, but I'll try my best to be active as much as possible.
P.P.S : Infini setting is actually setting to my bigger universe, this idea(Universe) here is part of that bigger universe (one that is still under development)
P.P.P.S : I'll be adding my own character as well, someone you could consider an npc, though it is not an npc really.

About my character :
Name : Zara
Gender: Female
Hair color/Style : Blonde with gray strand in front of forehead, long length straight
Age : 19
Height : 5’6
Weight : 134 lbs.
Clothes : Black Jeans, black tank top, grey t-shirt
Misc. : Agile, used to pain, Scarred, lucky
Personality : Secretive, Zara tends to hide things from others, She’s not one that trusts easily. Even though her trust can’t be gained easily, she will do her best to keep others alive. Zara tends to scare people, sometimes just because of her dead look in eyes.
Biography : Her past is last thing she’d like to talk about, one can only guess she lost someone, just like everyone else. Zara may reveal parts of her past as time progresses.

If you read till the end, wow, thank you for reading it all :)

Toggle Rules

1. You can try to be scientist, but it may be hard, and you won’t know much about disease ( No, you can’t find cure, at least most likely you can’t, for disease may mutate), you can also play as zombie.
2. No overkill weapons( like M 1314 - minigun for example), you are not Rambo, you are meant to be survivor, at best ex-military ( For most of them will be dead I guess)
3. No one can force you to kill character, only creator can kill off his/her character, No one can control other pc ( Though in same cases it is allowed – Example : When player is absent for long time)
4. About swords, sure but you still may get killed if you rush into horde( well to be honest you’ll die for sure in my opinion), and being samurai won’t help.
5. If anyone chooses to be zombie, cool have fun, but don’t piss of anyone somehow( example – constantly screwing up whole group of scavengers/players), let all have fun :)
6. No trolling, well...unless your character is a bit of troll :)
7. No OOC fights between players, no foul language OOC
8. When it comes to OOC you can use it anytime, though try not to overdo it :)
9. Be patient towards others, they may not have enough time to reply to post
10. Try to post at least once two weeks, though if you're going to post like that for a while or stop posting for a while, tell us before that happens so we can come up with some sort of solution to possible complications/problems

Malcom stood at the window of the hideout of his new team with his hands in his pockets. He was waiting for some people he realized he never learned the name of to return. He was alone with Zara, who he had spent most of the day unconscious. He walked over to where she was sleeping and saw she was somewhat conscious.
“How you feeling?” He asked. He knew she’d probably be too weak to answer, but he figured it would be worth the shot.

Seeing Malcolm, and hearing his voice – his question made her smile.

“Take…a…guess…”

She felt terrible – to be precise it was like someone hit you with a car, and then you’d have to be so unlucky to get bit by dangerous snake or scorpion. High temperature, cold sweat, headache, barely able to speak thanks to sore throat and feeling of numbness whenever wanting to move any limb.

Just great... - was the only thing that came to her mind.

Malcom nodded.
“Not great, I guess,” he said. He looked up at a broken clock in the room.
“Where’s those two that went off for the car?” He asked at last, mostly to himself. “They should be back.”

Kobe spotted the two making their way out of the one building in view of the store. He watched the direction they had gone, and then watched the building to be sure they were not followed. Finding the coast clear,. He began by heading down from the roof and once more taking the time to scan the area. The one was injured, and that could mean that there were problems in the building they had left. Still he decided that getting in touch with others might be worth the risk.

Taking his careful route down from the roof, he was as careful on the way down as he had been in the way up. Moving through the water drain pipes, he checked each corner carefully. Heading along he came up from a grate just down the street from the safe house Zara and Malcom. He didn't know them and didn't want to shoot them, but calling out to them could attract unwanted attention. Looking over the safehouse, he searched for a way he could make it clear he was trying to be spotted.

Most recent OOC posts in We few, who struggle to live...

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Yay! Good to hear that :)

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

I could rejoin. I'll keep an eye out for the new posts.

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

In that case we can continue, though either we wait a bit longer for the rest, or just play in two, three people ^^

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

I’d be happy to keep going with this if you guys haven’t started a new one already, I was enjoying this RP.

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Hi :)
Umm, sadly I think the rest just...kind of left?
Not sure really, I could start another one with you, if you want ( use the same world, or use this one but without them)

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Is this roleplay still active? If so, I'd like to make a character, but just got to be careful you know?
Probably ought to read more into this RP before I make a character (if it's still active) just wanted to check beforehand however.

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Hmm, Now I think it would be good for Glory's characters to arrive, and Lucy could hear that someone is yelling :)

Edit : Welcome back Glory!

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Yup, we are :)
Though Glory is silent sadly :(

So in worst case we would have to play for a while without him...

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Hey guys, I hope we're still carrying on with this :)

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Back from a busy holiday. Things should be calming down here

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Oh?
Kay, good to know :)

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Just some friendly advice, if you tag the characters that are in your scene, they will get a notification when you post. :)

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Oh come on!
Here I wanted to be a second one!
Kay, give me a moment :)

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

That’s fine with me. Whenever you’re ready to begin just make the first post :)

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

I mean shortened version of something, for example saying - Move! Rather than - We gotta move, now!
Other would be me sometimes shortening what I write OOC, which may sometimes confuse people at first.

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

That situation sounds fine with me! And what do you mean by thought shortcuts?

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

I see, surely it would be easier together, considering Ayden's trust is hard to get... ( Same goes for Zara)
Though I'm curious about just met situation :)
I have an idea for both so...either is fine for me as well.
How about our characters met about two days ago, and now are in group?
Details of how they met exactly can be put together later
P.S : Btw do you mind thought shortcuts?

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

I would be fine with either personally.

Re: We few, who struggle to live...

Actually...that was my next question :)
Anyway gotta go for the time being
