Cell (By Stephen King)

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by WriterFreak, Oct 1, 2012.

  1. Cell
    Based on a novel by Steven king.


    The "cell" of the title refers to cellular phones. In this case, cell phones are the instruments by which civilization as we know it dries up and blows away within 24 hours. On and after a particular moment, which becomes known as "The Pulse," everyone talking on a cell phone gets their brain fried- As in, they go completely insane, killing many people for no reason, then evolving enough to kill just the ones who aren't crazy. Think of how they ACT (they cannot think for themselves) like a flock of birds, or a hive of bees- One mind that may be evolving even more...
    So, in terms of the roleplay, we are the survivors- aiming to get to the "Refugee State"- Maine. The problem is, we start out in California, where THE WHOLE POPULATION besides us are long gone. The 'crazies' have destroyed the airplanes and wrecked the streets, forcing the survivors to be usually on foot.

    The rules are the usual roleplay rules pertaining to this site.

    Mind If I pretty things up a bit? Also are you doing a direct copy of the setting or mixing in other elements?

    And Vay- WOAH. I like it. But why is it in the middle? O.o
  10. Because the server hates my timezone, fixed now.
  11. Alright :) You gonna join?
  12. Ooh this sounds fun. Cell = a most amazing book. Might I join?
  13. I Said I Own One. Never said I'm riding the Armored Bike now. XD

    I read the book too. So, I know it's going to be dangerous.
  14. Yes. Yes you can.
    Tensa- Just checking :)

    Reason for not having a cell phone: Cross is a loner type of person that doesn't have too many friends, so he wouldn't have a need for a cell phone because he'd have no one to call with it.
  18. Good, but appearance doesn't seem to be working, and weapons? You may need them... -_-

    And one person remains to sign up before we can start.
  19. Fixed. Better?
