I know Apocalyptic roleplays aren't much in style anymore, but for those who still enjoy the classics, I'm making this. IC THREAD: OPEN SIGNUPS - A New Life(Zombie Apoc RP) Intro: The world had long ago been ravaged by corrupt politicians, wars, and crime, when it was a 'thriving' planet. Now, sixty years after the world went to hell and brought back souvenirs, plenty of survivors still strive to live in this dead world, and plenty of the undead have come from the underworld to claim the rest of humanity. If that weren't enough, some have mutated from loads of various situations, in order to better catch their victims. The survivors, living in what is now a shell, far from its former self, have never had to say that the undead were a worse threat than mankind itself, until now. Do they have what it takes to survive in this hellish, unforgiving world, or will they add to the count of lifeless corpses, roaming the Earth forever? CS: Appearance:(Picture, or description) Name: Age: Likes: Dislikes: Skills:(No more than three-four) Brief History:(Describe a brief amount of background on your character. Take off the 'brief' if you intend to insert their entire life story, pretty please) Inventory/Equipment:(You know the drill, nothing overpowered, no over the top weapons, no abundance of supplies) Companion(s)[if any]:(Only two companions maximum, and only you can control them) ------------ RULES: !!Iwaku Rules Apply!! No metagaming or godmodding, no controlling others characters or deciding when they die on your own accord. No powerful weaponry or loads of food, ammo, supplies, etc. No overly-sexual scenes(hints are okay), and NO sexual themes between age groups. CHECK/ASK THE TARGET PLAYER, BEFORE PROCEEDING!!!!! ASK AN ADMIN IF NEED BE! All 18+ sexual happenings/sexy times should be done in PMs, and NOT in the IC or here in the OOC. Over all, HAVE FUN --------- Mutated zombies/undead/zeds/etc.: Lurker: These nasty looking creatures have perfected the art of hiding in the shadows, waiting for unsuspecting victims. Upon leaping onto said victim, they unleash a blood curdling, ear deafening scream, distorted and twisted, resembling something of an unholy nightmarish dubstep, only ten times worse. They can be heard for miles, attracting undead from miles and miles away. They have developed hooks for fingers, so when they grab their prey, their fingers sink in, and lock their victim in for good. If the survivor is lucky enough to kill them, their hooked finger will leave a nasty gash, if they're able to grab them. Crawler: These are crawlers. They've mutated from canines, and now have a much more rounded skull. They've also lost the ability to see, but have instead gained unparalleled hearing, making them some of the worse foes to come across. Not much else to be said about them. Runner: Runners are zombies/undead who after many years of chasing their victims, have gained more power in their legs to move faster. Much faster than a normal, everyday zed, these guys can chase their victims down in minutes, or if their target is fit, chase them out of stamina and breath, leaving their victim unable to even scream. NOTE: If you've actually read this far, these enemies aren't meant to be unstoppable. You can evade them, kill them, or look for clues to avoid them entirely. Lurkers are masters of hiding, but that doesn't mean survivors can't be masters of seeking, so with the right know how, they aren't always hidden well enough. Runners have great speed, but are like the ghouls of fallout when attacking. They lunge at their targets, and being that their strength is in their legs, they tend to not catch their target on the first swipe. This leaves them vulnerable as it's slightly a challenge to get on their feet again. Crawlers are the worst in some cases, given their long claws, as they can grip into most surfaces to allow walking/ climbing on walls. Unlike Resident Evil, however, in this world, they do not have any armor, or protective covering, as they're meant for agility and speed, leaving them very vulnerable. I hope those who check this out happen to like it, and decide to join in!
