Rage: The First Cut

Rage: The First Cut

0 INK

Living in an apocalypse has its ups and downs. For example, you may have swarms of uncontrollable, angry creatures that were once human beings after your blood... but there's no such thing as queues, and you never get a parking ticket...

709 readers have visited Rage: The First Cut since sean-senpai created it.

Introduction

October 18th, 2022.

Well, this is the first entry in a while. It's been difficult to find somewhere safe to rest, but I'm confident I won't be found on the third floor of a hotel building, especially since I barricaded the entrances, and started picking off the stray infected with my little baby.

It's been so long since I've seen another healthy human being, I'm losing hope after these two long years. The last 'surv' I came across turned out to be a sly infected, pretending to fight it so he could get close enough to bite. He underestimated me, and the power of my rifle. Although there was an emergency radio broadcast a few days ago, nothing has been done by the military, and there's no casevac plan. It's every man for himself to the last exfil in [TBC]; seems the Russians are trying to help get everyone out of here.

Lt. Jack Samson.
ZS Alpha Phoenix

-----

It's 2022, and the world has gone to hell. In [TBC], Jack Samson, the leader of Zombie Squad Alpha Phoenix is preparing to make one last trip around the city to retrieve civilians before escorting them to the safe-zone in [TBC]. He is immune, or so he thinks (he's been bitten several times and not turned), so he does his best to save people no matter what their current infection status, and hopes to see the world back to normal one day.

Characters can be human or infected (detailed in Rules). The infected look like humans in every way, except they have... severe... anger problems... for example, if you look one in the eye, they will most likely tear your face open, and gouge your eyes out. Infected can choose to try and fight the infection and maintain some of their humanity, however it shows through in their personality, and will result in outbursts of rage directed at anyone around them. These outbursts can be quelled by the consumption of blood (human or infected) which soothes the rage within.

The objective is to get to the safe-zone in [TBC], but there will be plenty of twists along the way, just to liven it up a bit for you. =)

Toggle Rules

You may play as either a Human Survivor, or one of the Infected.
If you choose to be a human:

  1. You have the option of being immune, however, I will not allow all humans to be immune.
  2. You may carry weapons, such as firearms and melee weapons - as long as the weapons are real and catalogued. No fantasy weapons.
  3. You may have your character wearing protective items or whatnot, but they won't be indestructible.
  4. Note that the infection is spread through blood and body fluid (basically, bite wounds and scratches, etc.)

If you choose to be infected (and fight the infection):

  1. Unless you were in some sort of military/emergency forces situation prior to infection, or were using a firearm prior to infection, your character will find it difficult to use those weapons due to fine motor control problems, as the virus begins to degrade myelin in the nervous system. You can be trained by other characters to operate a weapon (if they trust you enough to be close without you attacking them.)
  2. If you choose to fight the infection, you can contain the rage for a while, but it soon begins to build, and can only be quelled by consmption of blood, or another significant means of calming, usually something that was significant to the infected player prior to infection.
  3. Infected can feed off of each other to quell the rage. (in another version I did of this on another site, it became acknowledged as a sign of affection to let another infected feed on you. O.o)
  4. I will let you know when your rage is about to overcome you, so you can post fluidly and in context with the others, but this will be on the occasions where I feel you have gone too long without having an outburst. During outbursts, your speech becomes a mix of growls and primal grunts that other infected can understand, but humans can not. Motions become erratic and violent.

If you choose to be infected and not fighting against your infection:

  1. You may not possess weapons of any sort.
  2. You will immediately attack uninfected, but won't attack other infected unless provoked.
  3. The rage you feel is permanent. Blood quells it only partially, then boosts your craving after getting the taste for it.
-----

Apart from that, the rules in terms of gameplay are simple:
  • Don't autohit, or 'godmode' another player's character.
  • Keep romance relatively clean.
  • Infected-Human relationships are allowed.

Aldric stopped walking to nod at a casino that he so much hated. Gambling a fool play designed to catch even foolisher humans. Aldric then went on walking in a city he didn't know. He had only met some living creatures and most of them were his idiotic kind, one even attacked him with consequences for his health of course. Aldric walked some what faster having the strange feeling of someone a head, he stopped and bent over still holding his hands behind his back as he always did. Footsteps was what he had found, he looked at the footsteps and then found something that seemed to fill him with joy. The footsteps were close and had a patron if being close to each other, only a human would walk like that or maybe a infected fighting it. Aldric smiled at the thought of these fools thinking that there is hope for them, it was so easy to realize. He followed the footsteps and found a man. Not the strongest that he had encountered in his life, but a heavily armed one. He sat down and thought of something, he picked a rock from the ground and threw it some ground away. Aldric then waited for a reaction to monitor.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

I agree I am too abandoning this role play, very sad it was a good story and idea.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

same. If the GM doesnt show up, tehn its sort of pointless to continue

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

I've messaged the GM and have not gotten a response for a few days now. I am abandoning this roleplay and focusing on the ones I created. See you guys around.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

let us just start for real, I don't think that it is healthy for the role play to wait some more time.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Greetings all, I have just submitted my char, I hope the GM likes it and I get to join you fine people.

Look forward to it.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

I submitted a character application, hope i can join this RP since it looks interesting.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Can someone help........I posted my character and it sent me a message that I am now part of the RP but I sill can't post without the "you need to submit a character to post a reply to this RP", I am confused!

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Ya, but I'd like to go after the first post. So whoever wants to go, I say go for it.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Would just like to know when we will begin this roleplay, I am excited to see where this goes.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

This looks interesting. I may join.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Although I reccomended it, I would rather start in San Rafael. It is still pretty close to San Farncisco, but we get to go across the Golden Gate Bridge

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

I agree with Sorence. Washington DC is a very long way to go, especially if you're like my character and want to avoid most others.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

I would say like from San Francisco to Los Angels. Closer and the environment is so varried around there. Plus the weather really helps the decaying process of zombies. (Moist/tropical environment = rotting flesh)

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Hey folks, sorry for not being as attentive as I should. Suffering a little bit of depression. (replace 'a little' with a synonym of 'hellish')

This will get started soon, I swear, but the problem is I no longer have a specific location. The original gameplay would start in Washington DC, a few years after the outbreak, and the first 'episode' in the saga would be simply to escape to the Russian-run safe-zone in LA, but a lot of people seemed to have problems regarding distance, and also connotations of fuel reserves, and somehow began a dispute on how long after such a disaster the reserves of oil on earth would last... =P so I put it to you guys who have been accepted to think up some good locations, unless you are fine with the whole DC to LA shiboodle, in which case we are right as rain.


Hmm, I can smell this turning into Left 4 Dead, but I must say I was also thinking of this. Rustle me up a profile for it, and let's see how it goes.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Patience, I'm sure when Senpai is ready they will post or at least let us know when we can being.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

well who is going to start? I think that that honer is fore the GM of this role play.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Ya, I think you can.

Re: [OOC] Rage: The First Cut

Can I still get in on this?
