the story is mine but the info on the zombies is from:



The year is 3847 and the world as everyone knew it is gone. Its a complete shit whole to say the least.
The parasite known as 'The Hollow', a military created illness for war, somehow escape its confides and made its way into the air, infecting everyone. At first there was no great panic for the illness was only meant to give you the common cold but when it escaped it mixed with nuclear radiation, mutating it. The new illness caused slow and painful deaths, shutting down all the organs and polluting the brain.

But when the so called dead started coming back people thought it was a miracle. Until those people took a bite out of other's. People have many names for them zombie's, Walker's,Abominations, Rotters, Biters, Lurkers, Flesh Dolls, the list is endless but now a days they are called Corpses, cause really thats all they are. They have no memory of who they were just the urge to eat. There are different types of Corpses though:




You are a young surviver, blessed yet cursed to live on this new Earth. Fighting to survive. But what happens when you meet up with other's facing the same problem? The Human Resistance is fighting back back the Corpses arent their only enemy. They are waging a war against all who isnt human. How can you help stop the war? and along the way find a cure?
That is if there is one........

Something strange about this illness though is that, some are not effected.
When the illness broke out and people were dying off by the thousands, supernaturals beings whom have hidden themselves from the humans for nearly twenty thousand years, decided to show themselves and try to help the human race. But the humans didnt want their help and tried to forcefully use the supernaturals natural immunity to the illness as a cure. The creatures fought back though.
Over the years the human and supernatural numbers have greatly decreased, from being hunted down to dying from the illness. Now only a few thousands run around the dirt pile they once called Earth, which is now known as Pandora, named after Pandora's box.



VAMPS- These creatures are not immortal though they age slowly. They drink blood but can survive on human food, though they are weaker. The sun irritates their skin and Vervain can inflict serious damage when digested or it gets into the bloodstream, it can also cause rash and burns. Vampires have the power of super strength, speed, agility and Vampires are immune to the air born illness of a Corpse but if bitten can be infected (50/50 chance). When a vampire becomes infected they become a Basilisk.

WERES- Werewolves age slowly and shift into huge wolves capable of tearing through steel. Wolfsbane can cause serious damage when digested or somehow gets into the blood stream, it can cause swelled and/or a rash to area's of skin it touches. Werewolves have the power to shift into wolf form and human form, super strength, speed and agility and have enhanced sight, scent and hearing. Werewolves are immune to the air born illness and the bite of a Corpse, their skin being thicker and harder to puncture then other supernatural's, though if a Corpse is somehow able to puncture the skin several times the total amount of the illness will gather and start to over-ride the werewolves system. When a Werewolf is infected they become a berserker.

DEMONS- Demons dont reside from the depths of hell. They are the cousin of the vampire powers being almost identical expect that a Demon has the power to either control fire or have Telekinesis. They feast on blood and sins of a shattered soul usually found in the alley ways where desperate humans hide behind abandoned buildings or dumpster's. Holly Water and Vervain can inflict serious damage to any Demon and can kill if digested or merged into the blood stream. Demons are immune to a Corpses bite and can be infected by the illness in areas where it is still air-born, like the city central or other popular areas, making it hard for them to feed. When a demon becomes infected they become a spitter.

FAES- Faes age slightly slower then a human and have the ability to manipulate one certain element and have strong healing abilities. A faes life doesn't begin in the womb of another but the womb of their element, that has taken shape of a human being. Silver can cause damage to a Faes, with skin contacted can make a rash or worse appear and can kill if digested or merged with bloodstream. The are quick and agile and are immune to the air born illness but can be easily infected if bitten. When a Faes becomes infected the become mercy's.

SHAPESHIFTERS- Shapeshifters are military created. Once human, scientists forged their DNA with that of another animal giving the shapeshifter the ability to shift into that animal. The are gifted with enhanced sight, scent and hearing but are still vulnerable like their human cousins. Wolfsbane causes damage as it does to werewolves. They have slight resistance to the air born illness but are easily infected by a bite. When a shapeshifters is infected they become howler's.

ELF- Elves age the same as werewolves and vampires and have the ability of becoming invisible and have second hand healing abilities. They are usually quite tall, like werewolves, but are lean. They are quick and agile. Strangely enough plastic can cause serious damage to an elf and can cause death in some cases. Elves are immune to the air born illness and it takes a few bites for their bodies to become infected. When a Elf becomes infected they become Hunter's.

HUMANS- Humans are weak and are easily infected by the illness, through air-born or bite. They become Crawler's.
