What happens when 98% of the world dies within weeks? Would you be able to survive?

2,647 readers have visited Life: After Plague since midnightephemera created it.

Introduction

In the year 2014, after a harsh winter began thawing into spring across most of the United States, schools, workplaces, parks - all stood empty and lifeless. A sickness swept over the whole country, nay, the whole world in a matter of just 3 weeks. People who were fit and healthy one day were sick the next with flu-like symptoms. But of course, this wasn't the flu. The Plague was airborne, contagious in just about every way.

Only 3 weeks after the first report on the news, nearly 98% of every American was gone. Every child under the age of 16 or 17, gone, the first victims of the sickness. Most of the elderly, gone. Even those with immune systems that laughed at flus and viruses were no match for the veracity of the Plague. Looting, murders, and rape were rampant all over as a society hundreds of years in the making devolved into nothing in mere days.

You are one of the few survivors. Everyone you knew is dead, everything you once were happy to live for is now gone. Will you find someone else and group up? Can you survive alone until then?

Parker was blazing red now, especially from Storm's actions. The soldier kept her mouth firmly shut, her jaw clenched and flexed to the point that it began to ache. It might be cliche to say, but Parker knew she was always a bit... odd when it came to expressing any sort of reaction. So PJ ensured her gaze didn't vary from the grocery sign at the end of the hall directly in front of her, speeding up to reach the cart that was in the middle of the aisle. Without even glancing to the side, Parker pushed the stray cart out of their way quickly and holding her arm out in an awkward gesture. "After you." She mumbled under her breath, swallowing thickly as she vaguely attempted to remember manners that were taught to her long ago.

"... Huh. You've improved from 'all-guns-blazing'. Good. Thanks." Storm went ahead, laughing at PJ's awkwardness. She did feel quite bad about it all, to be honest. Poor Parker was, to put into words, the 'butt' of all her jokes right now. They weren't malicious, but they sure as hell were funny. Storm noted her intense blushing. It wouldn't be too bad if I flirted with her some more, she thought. "C'mon, PJ..." She said in a sweetly seductive voice. She looked around a little, curious, but still focusing on trying to make Parker awkward. What if she's gay? Her mind prodded at Storm. So what? I'm bisexual.

Storm had taken a dislike to her mind after it started talking to her. It had only occurred after she was alone for so long.

She stayed quite close to PJ, touching her arm lightly at times. "Hey... PJ..." She leant on a wall, still quite close to PJ. "Do you think I'm pretty?" That sweet voice of her's seemed almost like velvet. Sexy velvet, if there is such a thing.

Collectibles

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.


Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.

Mobs

Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!

Mobs can be automated spawns, like rats and bats, or full-on NPCs complete with conversation menus. Use them to enhance your player experience!

Current Mobs

No mobs have been created yet.

Spawns

Locations where Mobs and Items might appear.

You can schedule events for your players to create notifications and schedule times for everyone to plan around.

Re: Life: After Plague

COME ON GUYYYYS! I LIKE THIS RP, LETS KEEP POSTING!!

Re: Life: After Plague

Me too, but nobody is posting...

Re: Life: After Plague

Awwh, I liked this one!

Re: Life: After Plague

So...is it safe to call this officially dead?

Re: Life: After Plague

I know! I'm not waiting for Aurban anymore so I'm just going to carry on my character without her, hope everyone else is still interested in carrying the storyline on!

Re: Life: After Plague

Has everyone died or something, no-one's posting at all!

Re: Life: After Plague

I was going to wait till the group outside reconvened which is why I'm holding off on posting.

Re: Life: After Plague

Anyone know if Aurban is still in on this? They haven't posted in like a week and a half, and at this point we have two groups that are waiting for a response...

Re: Life: After Plague

ERGH...Sorry if I confused anyone. Fahrenheit's post didn't show up for me until a couple hours after. I edited it so it would make some sense.

Re: Life: After Plague

I can't wait to RP with all of you. This is going to be awesome! Really glad to be here.

Re: Life: After Plague

I'm really waiting for Aurban, too, but I don't think I can really move on without Axel present (unless he just stays outside or something)

Re: Life: After Plague

I think everyone is of the agreement that its the same grocery store. :D should be fun.

Re: Life: After Plague

Welcome Parker "PJ" Jessler to the roleplay!

Ditto here Jenny, though we could move on and keep unpacking, etc. if we don't see anything by tomorrow.

Re: Life: After Plague

Hi everyone just to let you know I haven't dropped out just waiting for aurban to post so my character can move on :)

Re: Life: After Plague

I have no idea if it's the same grocery store, but it totally could be if you wanted it to be. Also, if it was, the group already in the store might have heard the engines approaching since it's quiet outside; just a thought.

Re: Life: After Plague

Fuark! My bad guys, I was super busy and only posted for a couple of other things and hadn't noticed the two guys RPing with me had already posted. (I'm retarded.)

I'll wait for some confirmation that it's the same grocery store before posting!

Re: Life: After Plague

Is the grocery store from the most recent post the same one the other group is at? Because if it is, things are about to get interesting for all of us...

Re: Life: After Plague

Fine, I'm done then. Nice meeting everyone and maybe we'll see each other again somewhere. Have fun I guess, I'll just go find another RP.

Oh yeah, and thanks BOO and Jenny, your support was appreciated Although I guess it was all for nothing in the end.

Goodbye midnight.

Re: Life: After Plague

Really, i dont want to go round after round with you. Please stop posting in our OOC.

Re: Life: After Plague

I know I did some things wrong, but my point this whole time was that I just wanted a second chance. I only wanted to start on a clean slate, that's all. A second chance is all I want, I promise I won't screw up like I have been. I am fully aware of the things I did to upset you, and I guess I should apologize for all of them. So I'm sorry, I'll admit to acting...abnormally at the time.

So could you please give me a second chance midnight? I won't disappoint, and if you still don't think I'm good enough for your RP, you can kick me out and I won't be back.
