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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Rules: 1. No godmodding!
