    Plot challenges are designed to help you think quick and be inspired. We often play this game in the cbox, shouting out random words or phrases and see what ideas first pop in to people's heads.

    To Participate: THINK FAST. Don't waste any time. The first idea(s) that comes to mind, write it down and post it!

    NOTE: If you decide to borrow someone's concept for a roleplay, make sure you give credit.

The rest of humanity would be dead by then because of the virus and the virus would have died out because it wouldn't have humans to live on.

    But once they woke up twohundred years later they noticed that one of them had gotten the virus before they got frozen, now they couldn't know who of them that had been infected and they must fight to survive. Who will survive the virus and who will suffer in the infection before dying a painful death?
