    Surviving The Outbreak
    A Dangerous pathogen known as the "Vrykolas-Romero Virus" (VRV) began infecting humans throughout eastern Pennsylvania approximately 6 weeks ago. The VRV is unlike any other virus humankind has ever seen before. It kills its hosts quickly and within moments reanimates the corpse as a "Walker" or "Walking Dead" creature that is compelled to bite humans and spread the virus. These abominations are now known as "Zombies."
    Since the appearance of the VRV, world wide chaos has ensued. The power grid is down, supplies are finite, and zombies are roaming the landscape. Government officials are determined to find a cure for the VRV, but until they do you must try to survive on your own under desperate and unpredictable circumstances.
    WARNING!!!
    A new development in the infection. The government has wronged the world again by lieing to us and instead of finding a cure they have been releasing an even stronger virus which, depending on who gets infected, will cause not only physical changes but a change in the senses as well. We have listed all the mutations that we know of and what we have begun to call them. There are those who somehow have an immunity to any and all of the virus. These people are however carriers of the virus and can still infect others, we have begun to call these people "Carriers."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Types of "Zombies"
    Walkers
    Regular infected typical zombies. Slow moving, tend to group into hordes. Attracted to sounds and lights. Active during the day and at night.
    Beasts
    Tend to be feral animals turned infected. If bitten by a Beast you turn into a Humebeast or Hunter. Active more so at night and travel in small packs. Usually dogs.
    Crawlers
    Mutated infected, crawls on hands and feet. Very quick and usually in groups of 3 or 4. Active during the day.

    Creepers
    Child infected turned mutation. quick on their feet. Draws you in by crying. Get too close and they scream. Their screams cause dizziness, confusion, disorientation, vomiting. Active both day and night. Loners. Will kill each other if they cross paths.
    "Devils"
    Loners that are special infected. They can think logically and set very ingenious traps. They can also somehow control the hunters and humebeasts. Active during the day and during the night. Very rare to see.
    Tanks
    Also known as "Jocks" of the zombie kind. Mutated infected that are literally oversized musclemen on steroids. Active around large hordes. tends to kill Walkers.
    Humebeast/Hunter
    Infected humans by being bitten by "Beasts" usually blind and relies in sense of smell and hearing. Pounces on its prey resorting to ripping and clawing at victim. Also known as "Hunters."

    It is inspired by The Zombie Survival Guide and Left 4 Dead.

Robynne was the youngest teacher at the school and at first, she could pretend nothing had happened. But then the school had to shut down and she began running across several of the creatures. She had been raised by a single mother, but when everything went off the grid, she never even learned if her mother had survived.

Sherridan grabbed the first thing she could find in the kitchen aisle they were in, a knife, and defended herself, running.

  8. Name:

    March 9

    Weight:
    214 lbs
    Skin:
    Pale with light tanning on his arms.
    Race:
    Human
    Eyes:
    Gray/Blue
    Hair:
    Dark brown with a muddy red tint.
    Build:
    Due to a past of being obese his muscles are a little more build than others, but not very well defined. He has managed to tone them to some extent, but not to the point that he is ripped. But they still show to some extent.
    History:
    Having long given up on his aspirations to become an English teacher at a high school, Lane instead decided to focus on his work at a local Yoplait factory. Like everyone he started out as a temporary, meaning that he was working there through a third-party organization for lower pay, but he was eventually hired on as a Seasonal. This meant that he he worked for General Mills itself with better pay, but no benefits. That changed though when he was hired on by the company as a Full-Timer. But with this came a change in working environment. Once he was at the plant that had previously been Pilsbury he was given more responsibility, better pay and even benefits at the cost of a slightly more dangerous environment. He was at this job for a little over a year when he saw the newscast talking about "zombies" running rampant in the capital city of his state. Having long been a fan of such creatures and a fan of a certain Youtuber, he felt that he was prepared with the knowledge needed to survive. So he quickly emptied his savings account to buy not only basic supplies for living, but also weapons that he felt would work best for him. When he had everything he needed he got in his truck and started driving off going wherever he wanted.
    Personality:
    For the most part this man is quiet, until he gets to know a person. That's not to say that he will avoid all contact with others, it just means that he is a little more cautious than most. That's why it is hard to get him to talk for long periods of time until he feels comfortable around someone. At that point they tend to try to find ways to shut him up. Moving from this takes someone to his hobbies. He was once an avid gamer and Otaku, or anime fan, and this shows in what he can be found doing to pass by time and help to rewind. And that's reading manga that he has managed to scavenge from various stores and even some abandoned houses. And mixed into his collection of manga that he keeps in his truck a person can find some novels, typically things most would consider for teenagers. Now moving away from this is his addiction to tobacco. No, he does not smoke. He finds this as something incredibly hard to do thanks to the fact that he grew up with near fatal asthma. Instead he uses smokeless tobacco, or dip. He always has a can in his pocket and half the time has some in his mouth.

    And then there is the core of how he acts. Lane can be described as being cold, precise and stubborn. He's cold to others because he feels that there is nothing more to be said than the truth. He has hurt the feelings of many people this way. It also shows in how detached from others he can seem. To him everything has a time and a place. If he feels that something does not fit with what is currently going on, he will not get onto the subject or even acknowledge it. This was mostly a problem for him in his job before everything went to Hell because folks would try to connect with him on a personal level, but he was there simply to work. Nothing more, and nothing less. And then there is how precise he can be. This one is quite annoying to others because he chooses his words carefully. What he says, is exactly what he means. If he says that he might be able to do something, prepare for the chance of failure. And then there is the stubborn part of his mind. This one can be seen as a double-edged sword of types. The good part is that he's too stubborn to break a promise. So if he promises to do something, he will try everything he can to do it. The only times that he does break a promise is when he either can not keep it no matter what he does, or he forgets he made the promise in the first place. And then there's the bad part of being stubborn. Everyone has encountered someone that is stubborn, but he's been known to take it to a new level if it's something that he seriously does not want to do.
    Clothing:
    Basic is the way to describe his outfits. He always has a pair of blue jeans, plain t-shirt, white wife-beater, leather belt, black steel-toed boots and a camouflage ball cap. He accounts for cold weather by wearing either a black hoodie with "Nissan" etched onto the upper left pectoral in red thread or a tan Dickies jacket with a fleece hood attached to it. One could also consider the ring on the right butt pocket of his jeans to be part of his outfit, but that's from always having a can of dip on him.
