New thread new roleplay. Mikey and I will co-manage. I will try to start the new zombie roleplay after this gets started. Any interested co-managers, let me know. The story- You wake up to a world that has been virtually emptied of human beings. Your friends, family, loved ones, co-workers- everyone is gone. For every 500,000 people, one person remains, or roughtly 10,000 people on the planet. What happened to everyone else, is unknown. It is as if they suddently got up and went elsewhere leaving you behind. Your story is about meeting each other and finding out what happened. To the best of your knowledge, there was no war, no virus, no alien invasion. Nothing. Yet somewhere there lies a clue. I will start the first post probably in a week or so. We will use this week to sort out. First question- what city would you like to begin with? Options include New York or London but we can accept other choices. for now I'd like characters to stay together. This is not a shoot-em-up, although there will be some of that and there will be "others" that you will have to deal with. At present its' all a bit experiemental. Your characters should not be super-hero survivors of the apocalpyse. Rather they should be just people you'd normally see. You can choose up to three characters, as some will probably be killed off pretty quick. I suggest that you play them as normal folks. Taxicab drivers, postal clerks, bartenders, waitresses, office workers, school teachers, civil servants. When posting your characters, you need not give stats, but rather rely on a discription. Post your character here. A couple things I ask- (1) characters should normal folks. My three are a 41 year old black woman, a 27 year old asian pharmacist and a 33 year old mailman. (2) you should strive for realism although the story will probably get very strange. (3) When posting your characters discuss what their lives are about, what they do, who they did it with and also what they have regular nightmares about. For example the blackwoman has dreams of dead son, nightmares about her ex-husband as well as nightmares of demons that live in tunnels beneath the city. (4) Ethnicities matter. If you play 2 characters, one has to be of a different ethnicty than you. If you play three, two must be of different ethnicities than you. Equipment etc- you start off where you sleep, where you might normally sleep. Start from there.
