Welcome! This is the OOC thread for 'The Necropolis', a zombie RP set in Victorian London.

We're always on the look-out for new RPers so if you'd like to join, check out the tabbed RP at the top or PM me to get a gist of what's going on and how you could slot into the story.

Otherwise, this is a place for plotting, discussion and general OOC-ery. Have fun!

This is quite good, I'm interested but I don't see a character limit or reservation limit or anything of that nature. So I'm thinking you're open to whatever or you already have the people you need. Assuming is never good, that is why I'm hoping you'll respond to this with an answer to ease my mind.

Glad to see I've reached the accolade of 'quite' good. As a Brit (and used to British understatement), I'll take it as a compliment.

And nope, as you can see there are no characters accepted yet besides my own and there's no set character limit. If I get loads of interest, I might cap the RP at around 10 RPers or so but I wouldn't worry about that yet. I'll add this info to the introduction.

No worries, Skulls. Friday's fine. And note to everyone who's submitted characters- I'll only approve/reject them once they're finished!

Thank you, glad you accepted the character (and presuming liked them). When are you - roughly - planning on starting the RP? Just asking out of curiosity.

Are you still accepting? I'd like to submit a character for this. ^_^
This is a story about two boys
The taller one has a gun tucked into his waistband
He thinks the bullets are meant for him.
The older one has a record player in his head
He sings along to the same five songs.
They know each other
Down to the colour of blood
And the sound of bones breaking.
But they are strangers.
The one with the gun keeps forgetting the words
And the boy with the music won't let him shoot.

Yep, still very much accepting- go ahead!

And I'm planning to start the RP early next week, either tomorrow or Tuesday.

Awesome, ha I have the day off so I'll be impatiently waiting for people to post :L.

This is just about the character Isabella (my private messaging doesn't seem to be working so sorry to lovechanningforever) Yeah I love all of it and have added her into Basil's character sheet as well. Sorry again about taking so long to reply, I was trying to figure out the bloody pm system :/

If you have 10 or fewer posts, the PM system might still be blocked to you. So feel free to spam here if you like!

And sorry for the delay! Maybe you could get working on the bulk of your first post? Figure out if Basil's going to be on the omnibus or walking down the street etc. The general gist of my introductory post is detailed on the RP tab so you know approximately what will happen. That way you can post ASAP once I've got my arse in gear and we can get a decent momentum going!

Oh, darn. I'm sorry, the application I was working on was deleted. This is bad, I was counting on finishing it this weekend. :(
I'll most likely be busy tomorrow onwards, but I'll try to get some time to submit it. I'll use a custom application, a little more detailed.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Go ahead with the posting, just wait for another character coming up.

I think I just hit 10 posts with that last one!

Sounds like a plan :) I'll probably put Basil on the omnibus. Are we going to call the zombies "zombies"?

Not to worry Tania- I'll make sure you're involved in the RP as soon as your character is submitted. There's plenty of opportunity to introduce people at any stage but I doubt we'll have advanced far enough past the introductory scene that joining us at the beginning would be a problem.

As for what to call our zombies... That's a good point. I guess because 'zombie' is derived from Haitan Creole our characters wouldn't use it unless it was suggested to them. Dead, Undead, The Turned, Infected etc. would be fair game. If you come up with something more suitable and Victorian-sounding, do let us know!

Maybe "Corpses" just seems more formal or "The Turned" seems fitting. Or possible "cadavers" but just because my character was a surgeon.

I might suggest vile nicknames like Hookem-Snivy Lepers, Muck-Snipes, shivering jemmies, or lost pidgeons. S'Victorian era street slang 8P

Which reminds me. How did people then speak? Like 'tis (I.e. "Young lady, din't yer mam teach yer any manners?!") Or in a formal manner (I.e. "Have you not heard the news yet, Miss"?)

Er... I suppose then, like now, how one spoke was dependent on one's place of upbringing and socioeconomic status as well as the context. And to my ears, the first of your examples sounds like a vaguely northern English accent rather than someone from London. Feel free to attempt regional accents if you want but if you don't feel comfortable with it, I'd rather be spared pages and pages of Mockney.
