Introduction

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"What do you do when everything goes wrong?"


ImageImage
At first it was slow. Only affecting certain countries, major cities being quarantined off, the military stepping in and taking charge. The change didn't happen instantly, the dieses only having the symptoms similar to the common cold. There was no panic, no riots, no danger. Everything was relatively normal beside the quarantine and military. But that's what really confused everyone, the military involvement and quarantine over such a little flu bug.

"Why?"


As months went on and more quarantine areas were put up in every major city civilian's started to notice the increased number of sick people. More symptoms were starting to show, some alot deadly then others. It wasn't until a year past that people started to die, though the count was small only being in the thousands, its what happened to those who were sick that survived.

It was as if the virus had taken control, the living infected people were starting to become feral. It was months after the worldwide death toll that the governments of the world informed everyone of the test they performed a year back. They had launched a silent bomb into the air, which released a particle that was suppose to fix the depleting ozone layer. The test was successful in that regard, the particles doing its job but what the government hadn't expected was for the particles to become a virus, a plague that infected the human population worldwide.



_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"It only takes one spark to ignite a flame."


ImageImage
The end process of the plague was slow and painful, resulting in worldwide suicides that didn't go as planned. The infected survivor's changed, the appearances and strengths. Enhanced speed, strength, night vision, agility, enhances healing, durability. The changes were happening everywhere and a few months later the first murder.....or should we say mauling. The plague change was complete and the millions who were infected became feral, dangerous, man-eating beasts.

They began to hunt the non-infected humans, eating them. They were hard to kill but they are still alive, they were once human. But as years went on people stopped looking at them as humans more and more. They didn't age, they evolved. People started calling them Zombies. As years passed the airborne plague started to settle on the ground. The next generation of survivors became immune to the airborne particles unless they are in a highly infected area, since the settling particles framed spores and fungus on the ground, usually found in buildings and underground areas.

Survivor camps were created in the still standing quarantine zones, the remaining military taking command. There were people who didn't want to follow the military and instead survived on their own. Hunters, Scavengers, Cannibals, so many different groups were formed and over the years they have been at war with one another.



THE PLOT – Its been forty years since it all began. You will be roleplaying as a group called the Gypsies, who are a group of young adults born in the apocalypse (third generation). They were all orphaned at some point of time in their lives. They are being tracked and hunted by the Military and a secret group (won’t find out until later). One of the members in the Gypsies is believed to be a Cure. You are on the run but how well can you survive with limited supplies and ammo? And how well can you trust the people around you? While the Leader, Medic, Navigator and Mechanic all know each other from childhood the Scout and Enforcer are still strangers to them. Where will you go? North? South?

There are three types of Zombies...

Version One
Version One Zombies are the most common of the beasts, though they aren't
as people thought they were. V1 are the more feral beasts,
running more on instinct and brute strength. Since the Zombie
breed doesn't seem to die easily or run on age they are seen
as more of the undead type. Some with pieces of flesh missing
or bullet wounds. They are usually found out in the open, large herds
gather in abandoned quarantine zones and cities.
V1 are usually first turned people.
Version Two
V2 Zombies are more stealthy and quiet. They are intelligent,
their type being more like a big cat stalking its prey. These type
of zombies are greatly feared more then their early stage brethren.
They are cannibals, sometimes eating their own kind, usually the
weaker zombies, V1. V2 is usually found outside the walls of surviving
zones with living people still inside. V2 are over 15 years and older.
They are blind and rely on sound to hunt.



Image

Version Three
V3 type zombies are the oldest type of zombie, the firsts formed years
ago that has since then evolved into this gruesome creature. They are
the strongest and fastest of all the zombies and are also the most
intelligent. Almost impossible to kill then are usually found where a large
density of fungus and spores are found. Not much is known about V3
because rarely anyone lives when they encounter one.





And Four Different Human Groups.

Hunters
Hunter's are the people who ambush other survivors and kill for supplies.
Usually held up in medium sized towns, close to cities and survivor camps.
They find the military and other groups for territory, supplies and weapons.
There are alot of Hunter's but all are different groups of survivors.
Scavengers
Scavengers are the people who hide out in safe zones with the military.
They are the people who search the cities for supplies and items.
Some scavengers will hand over the supplies found to the military,
like everyone is suppose too, but others will sell off their items to others,
sometimes striking up deals with military men for special treatment.



Image


Cannibal's
A bunch of evil bastards who instead of fight against the zombies decide
to join them. These people will eat whatever and whoever they get their
hands on. They will sometimes camouflage themselves among Zombies
for sneak attacks.
Gypsies
Gypsies are a mew group, made up of any six young people. They are
the third generation since the plague started and are usually orphaned
at a young age and put in military schools, which they later escape.
They are wanders, never pleased with staying in one place for very long,
knowing it will never be safe. The military hunt them for they are in the
possession of the one things that could save humanity from its 50 years
of damnation.

"Hidden in plain sight."
~ G H O S T ~


A vicious snarl emitted from Ghost's right, who's glowing eyes glanced over at the young giant feline who crouched beside her. Ghost hissed, the sound completely nonhuman. The hiss silenced the mountain lion, who Ghost had named Leo causing the large docile cat to curl into Ghost's side, warming the area. Leo purred as Ghost stroked his head as she continued to look through the scope of her sniper, watching the action that had caused Leo to snarl. Two heavily armed men had just killed a fleeing couple and were now stringing up the carcasses.

'Cannibals' Ghost thought bitterly as she watched the scene. The coppery scent of blood mixed with the fresh scent of rain, both scents twirling together and making a rather unpleasant odor attack Ghost's sensitive nose. Her stomach flipped, making her feel sick as she glared through the scope at the backs of the receding men.

"Disgusting men" Ghost growled once the men completely disappeared. Slowly she crawled out from her hiding place she and Leo had slept in overnight. It was only two old dumpsters with a cardboard box over top of them and a trashcan in front of her, but with Ghost's senses and Leo warmth it wasn't such a bad night. But the wake up call was rather disturbing, the screams of the couple had been rather heart wrecking and gut twisting.

Leo followed loyally beside Ghost as they wander around the abandoned, decrepit city. The city was surprisingly bare no more humans and no zombies, Ghost couldn't even hear anything but the cheery chirp of morning birds and the random caws of a raven. Yet even in this state of stillness Ghost was ridge and ready to pounce.

They walked through the city for a while, looking for anything of use. There was one building with a high density of spores and Ghost signaled the cougar to stay put while she venture forward. Fungal growth covered the walls of the foggy room, the only scents in the room was death and the rank smell of trash. Ghost sighed and started to head out of the building when she heard Leo's snarl. Ghost sniffed in worry and rushed out, leaving the building just in time. A V2 zombie was readying itself to pounce on the stiffened feline. The bony, hollow looking creature gurgled and hissed, its lengthened claws pointing hazardously at Leo. Ghost's thundering growl made the V2 swiftly look at her, giving Leo the moment to hide behind Ghost who was now positioned to attack. Removing her hood and mask Ghost's glowing icy eyes met the dull glowing crimson of the zombies. The white haired woman pulled back her lips in a snarl, flashing her lengthy canines in a threatening manner. With pinky length canines, white hair, glowing eyes and retraceable lengthening claws Ghost looked bit terrifying then the zombie in front of her. The zombie tried to step closer but Ghost snarled and stood her ground, swiping her claws at the monster. The zombie hissed and stepped back but Ghost didn't give it a chance to flee. She pounced, elbowing the zombie in the throat and pushed it to the ground, the hybrid woman landing on top of it. Without hesitation Ghost ripped the zombies throat up and took off its head, throwing it on the ground before crashing it under her boot.

Ghost hissed one last time before grabbing and putting back on her cloak and mask before patting Leo and on the head. Leaving the decapitated body of the dead zombie behind Ghost and Leo continued to wander around.

Kat Johnson can't remember the last time she saw her family, but she knew it'd been awhile. They split up at the beginning of this... living hell.. to find supplies. But that night, she swore there was a lack of zombies around her. She almost wished she hadn't of left them, her mother and father, but they made her leave.

"We'll be fine." They said with their usual happy, glowing faces of pride, and love for their only daughter. She sighed at the memories, but quickly snapped out of it as she continued on her lone journey through some awkwards woods kinda outside the city.

Entirely thankful for her supplies, and medical skills, she almost wished she had someone to work on, or just help period. Sighing, her tan complexion seemed to only absorb the hot sun during the day, and she grew darker by the second. Her back was starting to get heavy with her bag, and if only she sat.

Sitting for one minute. It couldn't hurt anything.... right?

Skye sat on the fifth floor of a ten story crumbling building. She sat on the edge with her legs dangling while behind here there was a battle being fought between concrete and vegetation. The vegetation was clearly wining as the building was now being engulfed by wild flowers and green vines throughout it's structure. The scene around Skye was beautiful to her, she has always been an outdoors person and loved sight seeing but this seemed to top them all. There was something about viewing the dilapidated city from above with the glow of the sunset hitting it at the right angle making it a sight worth seeing. In those quiet times are when the memories beckon to her, they came like a slide show showing her all the good and bad times. It started out when she first arrived at the academy, meeting Carmen for the first time and bunking in a room with her.


A second memory came but it was three years into the academy and it was a silly one. She can still remember it till this day, Skye had fell asleep and missed one of her training classes. When she woke up from her nap outside in the grass during that summer afternoon, she found Carmen next to her, sitting up as she watched the clouds roll by. The warm glow from the setting sun hit Carmen at the right angle making her glow when she smiled at Skye. Even now that memory still makes her heart race because that was the day she realized she was in-love with this woman in front of her. The woman couldn't help but to let a soft smile cross her lips as she let out a chuckle and messed with the ring that she now wore as a necklace around her neck. She lifted the silver band that was engraved and now a bit dirty to her lips, pressed her lips to it and whispered something inaudible before tucking it back into her shirt.

From where she sat, it was almost like the world stood still and there were no zombies, no crazed people or suffering anywhere, just her sitting here. These little moments were rare to her, just yesterday she killed about half a dozen of zombies, two scavengers that after many times of telling them to leave her be they still attacked and she ended them and a wild rabid dog that she felt bad for killing. Animals and children always hit a soft spot with her, like most but in this world now it was either kill yourself, get killed, turn into one of them, get eaten alive or survive. None of them sounded too good to Skye so she stuck with survive, she wanted to live, live for her and Carmen both and one day get back her love.
