  1. {Setting}
    A year and a half after the "Great Fall of Humanity", survivors originally looking for answers are now just looking to survive. What started as a political split between the Democratic and Republican parties due to China deciding to demand the funds owed, ended in a WWIII catastrophe as China and America went to war, many counties following suit to back their friends in trade. With the hysteria of a split America, and a war on our own land, a mass case of the flu seemed to be the least of America's problems. How the virus began, or what caused it is completely unknown. Maybe a weaponized virus gone wrong from Japan, maybe created in America and gotten into the wrong hands. Whatever it was, it seemed to be playing god. Starting off with fever, then vomiting, dehydration, blindness, confusion, muscle spams, violence, and lastly a craving for flesh. Unable to feel pain, be reasoned with, or die without a blow to the brain, the sick are very rightfully known as the undead. And as summer in South Carolina begins, it smells of just that, the dead. The, hot, sticky, summer air is filled with the scent of poor hygiene and rotting limbs. Though the zombies seem to be slowing as the population decreases, it almost seems as if it is the calm before the storm.

    The small town of Arcadia in South Carolina is now desolate except for the County highschool for troubled teens which has been cleared by a teacher, janitor, and student from the area and been guarded right about from the beginning. (1)
    Two miles from the school is a gas station and convince store, most of whats good has been taken, but not all. (2)
    A run down also looted restaurant called "Hart's Pizza" is the Arcadia Gas & Goods neighbor (3 can't really be seen but it's next to 2), across from that is the Arcadia post-office (5) and a tiny town hall(4). Between the school and the village runs Penelope river (6), a large Class B polluted river that runs down through the city for four miles into Little Miss Lake(7), both named after the daughter of the first mayor. The only thing that makes this little town worth noting in history books. It also allows some very nice cabins and lake houses around that lake, which are full of once fairly wealthy and successful people. (9) There is also a small neighborhood of close-by houses for a hippie community that used to have a lot of farming and live stock. Also under (9).

    Standard Iwaku Rules, of course.
    Please post on a regular basis, once or more times per day, at the very least once every other.
    Up to two characters per person!
    This isn't a smut, please fade to black and continue in messages if things go past PG-13.
    Please don't get it on with the zombies. It's weird, man.


    So I have three characters that need to be filled! A teacher, a janitor, and a kid from the County's Highschool for Troublesome Teens! Other than that, outsiders are welcome.

    When following the character sheet keep in mind we don't need to know your characters personality too much! We will find out through the story, this story is kind of open world, not many rules, go all out. If I could I'd allow you guys to share the bare minimum, but because we don't want OP people we do all have to share the basics.

    Character Sheet:

    Visual representation of your character (Realistic art styles and photography preferred, but all welcome)
    Any corrections to the photo or written representations of your character

  8. Real Name
    Elizabeth Harven
    Nick Name(s)
    Ellie, Beth, Scarecrow
    Short bio:
    Beth, or better known as Scarecrow in her school, was the drug dealer in her hometown. She was only known by that by her peers, and she was a fairly good girl other than that fact. Her father owned a clinic, and she often bought meds or opioids from the person that supplied said clinic. Her father taught her a lot about medicine, although she doesn't know as much as actual doctors. She does know how to take care of a cut, bad bruising, or certain afflictions. Her family died in the beginning stages, and she learned anything and everything she could from her father's old textbooks. She sought the cure for the virus, but months and months later she still had nothing. She realized one day, as she was teetering between another high due to the failure of her mission, that her family would want her to live and do what she could to survive, and if they could see her then they would've been ashamed. She cleaned herself up, and now makes weapons and other things to sell. She still sells drugs to people who will pay, and has more at her hideout. She had stolen most of the drugs when the world went down, leaving just a few antibiotics to people who needed them. She has most of the remaining drugs at her hideout, which is on the outskirts of town in a basement. She's well stocked, and she has preparative measures in case the undead or humans decide to raid her. Watch out, humans.
    She goes to the highway every week, and brings her van. Her van is black and windowless except for the windshield and set of windows next to the driver's side and passenger side. She has a few weapons that she'll sell there. She also sells some drugs there.
    Camo skinny jeans, A black tank top and a leather jacket. Magazines duct-taped to her arms and shins, hidden beneath her Leather jacket. Combat boots.
    Throwing knife holster on her left leg, Rambo knife holster on her left.

    Rambo knife with compass
    Set of six throwing knives
    Sniper rifle, A few cartridges of ammo.
    Taurus 357, Half a cartridge of ammo.

    Medical kits x4
    Three full bottles of Antibiotics
    Three full bottles of Opioids
    Medical bag contains:
    Vials of Insulin x4
    Antidepressants and Antipsychotics x3
    Water purification drops
    Epinephrine Injectors x5
    Compact for makeup x1

    Binoculars x1
    Duct tape x1
    Several crates of batteries, different sizes, for sale.
    About ten packs of cigarettes. She makes her own, For sale.
    She's not extremely strong, she's not very weak either. Her strength is mostly made up of her personality. She has average physical strength.
    Phobia of the dark, loud noises.
    She's cautious of people, as anyone sane would be.
    She's been through bad circumstances with survivors, and prefers staying on her own. She's lost her trust of people, good or bad.
    She has a spitfire personality, which goes hand in hand with her ability to take on things without little fear. She has a leader ability, but most times will be the girl who questions everything someone says or does.
    She's a very good shot with her sniper. She's named her sniper Spike.
    She can carry heavy weights on her back. (Her backpack with all her stuff, A person, Ect.)
    She has very good balance.
    She also a free runner. It was a hobby before everything happened, and she's still pretty good at it. It makes for an easy getaway.

    The reason I wrote a short bio, is because I wanted to explain the reason she has the drugs and medical supplies, I didn't want to sound like I was trying to make an OP character, if it sounded like that at all.​

  10. All three are accepted! Now we have a good amount of Rp'rs we can go ahead and start.
    But @Cheesecake was your character meant to be the janitor, in cahoots with my character, the teacher from the county's high school for troublesome teens?

    Do we still have no takers for the high school student to also be in the trio with the teacher and janitor? We can go ahead without a high school student, but Miss K and Richard will be the only ones currently with "territory" in the prime area of Arcadia.
  11. Clarissa could be the high school student. She's eighteen so it would fit.
  12. Yeah, sure! We own that territory so just we'll have to work together to make it up as we go along!
  13. Yay, it started!

    (And yes, Richard Nicks was the school's janitor.)
  14. Okay awesome! :)

  16. I'm curious, why would anyone want to carry so many weapons and items during an apocalypse? O-o I mean..

    Wouldn't that hurt when you run? x.x
  17. Hey @Lorienaz, where you referring to me and Tezzerakt's characters in your post?
  18. No
    I just added it on a whim. It would be cool if I had, but the gas station and cabins are miles apart. I'm thinking of changing that part if I can.
  19. Depends on who you're referring to, I don't think Xavier is packing too, too much personally. Just basic survival equipment and light, concealable weapons.
