Introduction

"Attention! All students are to follow their teacher's emergency evacuation instructions immediately. This is not a drill, repeat, this is not a-ah, shit, they're right out-" The intercom said briefly. The sudden noise from the speakers confuse everyone, and teachers stop their lessons. Silence for a few seconds before the intercom turns on again, but there is nothing but screams of pain for a few seconds. Most of the students panic, trying to get out of the building as fast as possible. The few infected in the halls quickly multiply, growing in number as the panicking students and teachers get caught and bitten by them.
A few of the students who stayed back or saw the infected before the intercom spoke managed to get to a temporary safe place, whether it be the roof, classroom, or closet. They started to group up, thinking that there is safety in numbers or that they need to stick together until they can get out of this mess...

Image

The school is three stories tall, with a letter for each floor (First is A, second is B, third is C). There is ten classrooms per floor, with one staircase on either end and in between. The janitor's closets are right next to the middle staircase on each floor.

At least one weapon per pair, but nothing that is illegal to bring to school. (baseball bats and kendo swords are available, but not abundant. Stuff like scissors and table legs are much easier to get one's hands on!)

The Roles (All genders are interchangeable, but please try to keep things balanced!)

The leader: "I need to do this... For what I have done!" Reserved By: The Soul one
He was selfish before things went to hell, but that was because he only wanted what he thought he needed, not knowing that he was pushing others away. He knows he made mistakes, and is looking for a way to redeem them. He and the Nurse are related (siblings/cousins). Stuck on the roof with the Smart One.

The Jackass: "Fuck you, I only care about me and my sis!" Reserved By: FamishedPants
He doesn't care for anyone but the Smart One (His sister), but knows the value of others. He is willing to put other's safety in front of his own, and has a sick sense of humor that he loves to show off. Should he come across a naked zombie in the shower, everyone will be sure to hear of it for weeks. Trapped in classroom 2B with the Teacher.

The Nerd: "Oh, I'm sorry..." Reserved By: MaliceInWonderland
Shy and always apologizing, has a special skill that no one expected: Guns. This nerd knows all there is to know about guns, and can usually name them on sight. She also knows a good deal about military vehicles, although not enough to drive one, and knows various military strategies. Stuck in the janitor's closet on the third floor with The Insane One.

The Smart One: "Stay close, I got a plan." Reserved By: divinedarkness
The one with the plan. She always has a plan for everything, including stuff like this. Ran to the roof as soon as possible, followed by the confused leader. She found everything outside the same as was going on at the school, except somewhat better as the military was taking action against them, although they had little success. Paired with The Leader.

The Looker: "Fucker got blood all over me... Looks like we need to stop again." Reserved By: BraceBlaze
The head cheerleader/football player, he/she was always looking good. Caring quite a bit about his/her looks and health, he/she was in the nurses office when the shit hit the fan, and he/she led the nurse out into a nearby empty classroom (9C). Cares for others, but doesn't want to admit it, and focuses mostly on looks. Paired with The Nurse.

The Teacher: "Look, lets just talk about it..." Reserved By:
Scheming and looking for power over others, she tried to keep control over the students when they started to panic, but just couldn't keep things under control. When everyone left, she looked back to see that The Jackass was mocking her, and talked him into sticking with her until things could get sorted out. Stuck with The Jackass.

The Insane One: "It's just a scratch, better than being bit." Reserved By: Rage&Pride
Mentally damaged from his past, he coped, and found a great way to prevent him from going killer was kendo. When everything went nuts, he calmly waiting for everything to quiet down before venturing out into the halls, dodging the infected until he came across the Nerd. He grabbed her and hid in the janitor's closet, where they took stock on what their options were. Paired with The Nerd.

The Nurse: "Let me look at that..." Reserved By: Thadine
Always caring for others before himself, he was explaining to the Looker that there was nothing wrong with him/her before the dead started breaking down the door. They escaped through the window onto the ledge, where they edged into a nearby empty classroom. He managed to grab his medical bag before he left, but he knows he won't have enough to save everyone. Stuck with The Looker.

Rin:

I scream, in spite of myself. This wasn't happening. What was going on? Was this just another senior prank? I always fell for the boy's pranks. It always left me..... exposed. I looked to the door a lurching silhouette filled the translucent glass. It looked like the outline of Ms. Keito. I sighed in relief. Then in the dead silence, a shrill scream. Another sillouette seemed to leap upon her. Red spattered up onto the pane of glass.

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Hey, I'm going to be out on vacation for the next 7 days.

We don't have internet where we're staying, but whenever we stop at a cafe or something, I'll log on and finish my character/post.

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Hey, I'm going to be camping for four days starting tomorrow. I will be unable to post during it.
Please get the characters done by then.

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Sorry bout that, I'll go finish me charrie right away

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

if everyone could finish their characters and submit them, that would be great.

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

@Thadine Yup, don't mind either. I always use anime pics when I can, but I can understand if you want to use real pics.

@Rage&Pride Okay, wasn't too worried.

@BraceBlaze Okay, reserved!

@MaliceInWonderland Makes enough sense too, because them being stuck in the janitor's closet allows her to get one.

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Can I reserve the looker?

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Just wanna yet ya'll know I'll finish up Vick's CS ASAP. I've been a little preoccupied at the moment, but I'll get to it soon. Don't worry! XD

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Hey, I noticed that there are both anime and real pictures for the characters. Is there one you prefer more than the other, or is either one alright?

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Alrighty, Riley's finished for the most part. I still have images to add but other then that. She's done xD

Dig her equipment, gave a little nod to the anime xD

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

@lokisma Actually, when you leave, you could abandon your character and I could play her until you get back.

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Sweet.
I've already got this whole idea about him being some poor medical student, spiteful that he could only get a job as a male nurse. Haha. He'll be interesting.

I'll start on him soon, though I'm going to be out for all of today, and most of tomorrow night. I can get a WIP in by tomorrow. Hopefully it won't take too long. =P

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Hey!

Can I grab the Nurse please?

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Hm, the rules seemed to have failed appearing...
Oh well, they were pretty basic anyway.

Alright, Reserved for all!

@FamishedPants I was thinking of you while I wrote him down... (joking, no I wasn't)

@Rage&Pride Yes, it can be a girl.

@lokisma Sure, won't take up a reservation for obvious reasons... Just have your character in the classroom with the Jackass and the Teacher.

@MaliceInWonderland It better have a second season... They said they confirmed it, but I forget when it should be coming out. (Too lazy to check :P)

If anyone knows anyone who might be interested in this, please invite them! I did not add this to the intro, but I am willing to add roles or duplicate them so long as there are obvious strength/weakness differences. (example: One insane one is horrible at fighting, but is good at first aid, while another is amazing at fighting, but everyone can hardly stand him...)

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Goddamnit, Soul, now I have to join this too. T_T

The Jackass seems cool. c:

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Okay, Can I take the Nerd,

her face claim will be Jhene Aiko.

I loved High School of the Dead, I'm still hoping for a second season '_'

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

Can I make a chick? Just a regular chick? I'll only be on for a bit, I'm just desperate for a role play before i leave for vacation. I wouldn't want to take up a valuable spot. I'll just get killed by a zombie later on...

Re: HOTD: Only the begining

*cough cough* *raises hand* May I reserve the insane one, if I may? And Is it alright If it's a girl?
