  1. New York City.

    The Big Apple, the concrete jungle. Dreams are made, stars are born. Sights are seen, and lives change daily. From the liveliest lights and scene of Times Square, to the back streets and neighborhoods of the Manhattan, Harlem, Midtown, Hell's Kitchen, etc. These are the societies that much of the world would deem as the capital of interest. The desired. Excluding the filthy streets and urban emissions, the skies are usually clear and the life is vibrant and festive. But today is something you didn't sign to live for. Today was something unforetold in this storybook you called a life. Whatever you were doing, you will always remember that moment before it all changed, before the world went into chaos and damnation. And among all placed of places...NYC would serve as a ground zero yet again to the most unthinkable, gruesome, unfathomed event of blood and death no revolution or war could ever dare to embrace.

    For today, you must escape a forced reality. Your last reality.

    - SEX/SMUT ONLY IF ALL RPers are 18+, if not then FADE TO BLACK / PM ONLY --- but not mandatory, but WILL happen at some points so long as you stay true to the gritty, surreal story that is the Walking Dead. Any and Everything goes in this rp. Anything.

    - Be ready for sacrifice. Surely you can't think there will be a happy go lucky story 24/7 and no bad endings will occur? You must be willing to accept death, loss, abandonment, etc. That goes for all participants (yupp, me too)

    - No metagaming (carrying 102 guns in inventory, can't die, killing 298 walkers alone, etc)

    - Bring something
    ORIGINAL AND FUN to the table with characters and stories! That same reaction you get when watching/playing TWD you should get while rp'ing this! ^_^

    -Based and set in the SAME universe as Kirkman's The Walking Dead TV Show.

    If your character becomes non-frequent in posting, THEY WILL DIE.

    Be ready for sacrifice, death, and chaos at every turn. THIS IS NOT A FAIRY TALE RP, IT WILL GET SURREAL!

    This rp will be as dark, cut-throat, and gripping and the series and show so it will be pretty intense. Of course you may chose alignment and persona of your character, just know EVERY choice comes with a consequence.

She lived the life of a farmer's daughter her entire life, the only time she ever left home is when she competed for archery and barrel racing in the rodeo.

    FLAWS(5): Hot-Headed / Reckless / Harsh / Detached / Resentful



    BIOGRAPHY: Unsatisfying childhood? Probably. Forced education in crime and lawbreaking? Most definitely. Johnny was inducted into his families trade the very day he was born, directly centered in the middle of it all in Manhattan, New York. There's no escaping your family when they're just a few inches under your skin, whispering feverishly in your ear that what you're doing is the right thing and will always be the right damn thing. This was his childhood. He breathed violence through his nose, expelled confusing animosity through his mouth. Why would he batter an entire family for money? He wasn't exactly sure, but he knew they were always right. Mainly composed of a loose group of criminals, they slowly began organizing themselves into associations that over time became more fitted. The family began to spread their wings, extending their bloody paws across the city. Fearless, careless, brutal; he had seen it all. Racketeering, gambling, loansharking, extortion, money laundering, fraud, hijacking, murders, merciless beatings, pier thefts, and fencing. He lived for the family, and that was that. Any doubts were soon extinguished, stubbed by loyal heels and conversations that started with: "Listen, kid, here's only one law in business; murderers come with a smile, watch your back and do it for the family."

    Every new tide, every new wave, Johnny allowed himself to stick with it. It flowed through him and settled on him like a thin layer of dust. Violence perched on his shoulders, digging it's talons into his skin and for once in his life, he didn't bother shaking it off. Hurting people became a feeling he couldn't explain, even now. Human life came secondary, and was treated less than cattle. This enigma is one that took him over and shut him down circuit-by-circuit. Emptiness, denial, rejection. Dive into the thralls of it, however, he realized it's just too much, too much feeling. Too heavy, too local, too personal. Life became a constant soap opera and he was just watching it from the sidelines, allowing things to happen without interfering. All the little things and feelings from the movie he was now watching in his head made it so he couldn't distinct one thing from another. It all ran together into a kaleidoscope-blur of colors, scarring him, changing him. Someone had to pay, someone always had to pay. It was creation, it was legacy, it was their dynasty. It was what it was and it still stung behind closed doors.

    How he managed, even he doesn't know, but he escaped his family -- made them believe he'd died in a gutter somewhere. Murdered in the streets, kidnapped for pay, who knows. He ran as far away as he could without telling anyone, leaving behind the family he considered his life. New name, new face, new life. They would drag him back kicking and screaming, they wouldn't understand his need to escape. He was finally alone, finally free.

    • Very fit for his age, well-toned, high stamina -- running from those trying to murder you came in handy.
    • Has excellent memory, remembers names, faces as well as locations fairly easily off the top of his head.
    • Knows how to lie unbelievably well, and his indifference goes hand-in-hand with this.
    • Self defense is second-nature to him, learned it from a young age to keep himself alive.
    • Knows the ins and outs of most buildings, get in - get shit - get out, being an ex-criminal has its upsides.
    • Hot-wiring as well as fixing cars is fairly simple to him. Give him the tools and give him some time.
    • Fluent in Portuguese, and knows a little Spanish here and there.
    • Used to harsh conditions and getting little to-no sleep, but can sleep just about anywhere.
    • Very accurate with firearms but prefers using melee, it's more fun that way.
    • While he does have a big mouth, he has excellent hearing.
    • Tough as nails, most of the time he doesn't even realize he's injured.
  8. Awesome. Time to make the "old" guy. I was only going to do this if there wasn't one of these characters, but as it seems we don't have one yet, I'll make the hardcore survivalist person. Honestly, you need at least one if you want the group to have a realistic chance at making it any amount of time.

  9. How far along into the shit hitting the fan will this story start?
  10. Beginning,like hours before it all starts
  11. Alright cool. So my idea for a police officer character will work quite well then.
    • Thank Thank x 1
  12. Everyone's characters look great so far! Thanks for being a part of this! Can't wait to make this epic with you guys.
  13. Judging by the votes up top we're going to be bandits :/ >_< lol

    That will be an interesting plot line for a group of fairly benevolent people
  14. Well, my character will not condone such behavior. He'll probably actually just start arresting fools. Now, if we were to make it a couple of months or so and civilization has started to crumble more fully, he might change his tune a little.

  16. I'll have one up tonight.
  17. Sorry.. I lied. It'll be up tomorrow. It took me longer than I thought to change the brakes on my car, so I didn't have as much time to finish the character.
