Introduction

The Plot:


Pennsylvania suffers an outbreak of "Green Flu"; a highly contagious virus causing extreme aggression, mutation to the body cells, and loss of higher brain functions. Two weeks after the infection immune survivors make their way through the city of Fairfield, only to discover that the virus is creating more dangerous mutations. After narrowly avoiding these new infected, along with hordes of others, the survivors are alerted to the presence of an evacuation point at the nearby Mercy Hospital roof by a passing helicopter. Fighting their way through the city's streets, subway and sewers, they are rescued from the hospital's roof by the pilot, only to discover he is infected. After being forced to kill him, the helicopter crash lands in an industrial district outside the city. Finding an armored delivery truck, the group uses it to make their way to the town of Riverside. However, they find the road blocked, and travel the rest of the way on foot. The group's goal is to get to Metro International Airport, where they will be transported to Northeast Safe Zone Echo, supposedly the only uninfected area yet to be overrun. Will they make it there alive?

The roleplay will begin after the helicopter crash lands. The Survivors had just met each other on the helicopter and are now thrown together in attempt to survive. Drama, blood, romance, death. Anything can happen.

The Infected:

Common Infected:
The common infected encountered during the game are fast and agile, weak individually, but may be overwhelming in numbers. They display a special attraction to high-pitched alarm-type sounds, such as the beeping device attached to pipe bombs and car alarms. Common infected will often chase down the source of these noises while ignoring lower-pitched, but much louder sounds such as gunfire. They occasionally attack in masses referred to as a "horde."

Special Infected:
In addition to the common infected, there are five "special" infected whose mutations grant them special attacks that make them far more dangerous.
-The Boomer is a bloated infected that can spit vision-impairing bile on the Survivors, attracting hordes of infected, and explodes on death, spewing more bile in the immediate area. They emit burping and vomiting like sounds when close by.
-The Hunter is an agile foe that can jump and pounce on a survivor, and then tear at his victim until he is knocked off, kills his prey or is killed. A hunter emits animal like screeches or light roars when close by, and a snarling growl can be heard when in close proximity.
-The Smoker is a boil-covered creature with six long tongues that it uses to ensnare and drag a survivor back to himself. It may then either attack the survivor directly, allow the horde to attack him, or leave the survivor suspended over a cliff or roof-edge. The Smoker only releases its victim if a teammate shoves the ensnared survivor, if the tongue is shot, the survivor is killed, or upon the Smoker's death, which results in an explosion that leaves a vision-obscuring cloud. Smokers have raspy voices and frequently wheeze and cough, presuming that they may have been an avid smoker before becoming an Infected.
-The Tank is a gigantic muscular infected that has the ability to swipe at survivors, knocking them off their feet and incapacitating them; it can also throw rocks and knock cars and other debris into the survivors. The Tank is the most durable of all the special infected, and requires the full support of all of the survivors in order to be killed.
-The Witch is a female infected with long claws that stays crying in one spot. Survivors can often avoid the Witch but if they disturb her with light, loud noises or gunfire, she will become aggressive and charge at the one who "startled" her.

Dawn Clarkson


The noise from the helicopter crash drew a horde of infected around the immune Survivors. Dawn whipped out her gun and shot a few zombies that were getting close to her. She continued this as one crept up behind her and began clawing at her back. She turned around and shot it, while the three zombies in front of her managed to push her down. They tore at her legs and she let out cries of pain. She shot them quickly, but didn't have time to get up before the next wave of infected closed in on her.

Aaron Turner


Aaron pulled out his gun and shot at the infected. He made sure to keep a good radius around him of open space, no zombies within ten feet of him on all sides. He attempted to keep it up, but infected came at him from both the front and the back and his radius got smaller, about seven feet. He looked around at the other survivors to see how they were doing. One girl was on the ground. There was another girl, then a boy. He couldn't quite see them. Well maybe if he craned his neck and-- a zombie scratched a gash into his hand and he quickly shot it, refocusing on the infected, not the Survivors.

The gun in his hand jumped, "Leave the lady alone!" Marcus kicked at a zombie trying to grab at the young girl on the ground, after a few more shots he leaned down and grabbed the girl by the arm and pulled her up, "Easy little lady," he said making sure his back was clear, he looked to the other guy, he seemed to be doing fairly well on his own, "We need to move!" he yelled.

She had rammed her shoulder hard againest the side of the helicoptor when it had crashed, they all were lucky to have lived through that ordeal. But crashing in a helicoptor was the least of thier worries...now they had a horde out for thier bodies. Kate chambered another round in her shotgun, out of the group of four she was the only one with a weapon that wasn't a pistol. With out bringing the rifle up to her shoulder she fired and split a zombie in two, she chambered another shell, this time bringing her gun to her shoulder she hit a zombie in the head. "We need to move!" yelled one of the guys, he stood a few feet away with the female who looked to have several cuts on her body. "I second that motion!" she called back, before shooting another zombie.

Dawn


Dawn squeezed her eyes shut as Marcus shot the zombies in front of her. He helped her up, and she flashed a grateful smile. Her legs hurt like Hell. She nodded in agreement as Marcus shouted to the others that they should move. She slung her bag over her shoulder, and waited for Marcus to chose somewhere to go and she would follow. She definitely wasn't planning on leading.

Aaron

Aaron kept up the radius around him, not letting any zombies touch him after that one clawed his hand. He knew it was bleeding a bit, and he also could feel that he had some cuts due to the crash, but nothing too bad. He heard the other guy say that they should move. "Agreed!" He yelled back after he heard one of the girls saying she that she seconded the motion. He shot another zombie, then starting backing up toward the others. He thought they should probably move toward the road, where abandoned cars were scattered everywhere. Maybe they could get one of them to start? He wasn't sure, but anything was better than staying where they were.
