This is an RP about survival, desperation and rebuilding lives. It is not a shoot 'em up and the aliens will be mostly unseen. The emphasis is on moral dilemma, emotional drama and realistic consequences.
My group will be on a convoy fleeing the city.
Diana's group will be at Gentry, an isolated farming community that has survived the worst of the invasion.
These two groups are about to meet.

Please don't ramble on about your background, personality and equipment. That's what the IC is for.
Adventure stories! They can be fantasy, modern, sci-fi, all kinds! Give me some good world travel stories and I'm all over it! I also enjoy romance stories and even though I tend to play females I love playing gay men.
What you did before: Ran a dinner/ truck stop in Gentry
What you do now: Provides the people of Gentry with fresh food and water if they no longer have nesseities in their own homes. Also is the last supply of gas available in the city.
(Asmo, if you need more men hit me up, I can throw a male character togehter if you need one)
Well trosty, if you are will my character could work with your characters on preserving anything they hunt and grow. I was planning on having the dinner being more or less flipped so that she could do more preserving so that food lasts. Also, I assume that some things in the dinner might not work anymore after the aliens came, like gas lines for the stove and such.
Name: Jennifer Moss Appearance: About 5'4 in height with long straight brown hair and dark brown eyes. Of some Latina heritage. What you did before: Wife, mother of two. Domestic Goddess of her home in Gentry What you do now: Town loon
That sounds like a great link-up! Diana and I plotted that there could be different kinds of organized "aid-stations" set up in the town-market/centre that would be working to help the inhabitants get by in this time of need.
As for now only a soup-kitchen ran by the Ludvigsen family was suggested. For Farren to play a major role in the hands-on work with this(looks to me) as something ideal for a person of her occupation, when it comes to handling rations of food handed out and the serving itself.
Also, this opens for Sylvia to deliver food from the farm directly to Farren's dinner for storage.
Erm...am I being to direct and descriptive with my plottings?
Not at all, actually I think I'm missing a little bit. It might have been how I read it or the fact that I'm currently taking pain killers for my stupid back and it's making my mind fuzzy. So what you are saying is that Farren would be like the soup kitchen that you and Diana had planned earlier? She would be the one to hand out food to people as well as store any of the food that is grown or hunted for the city? She would basically turned her busincess into a help shelter? I said truck stop since most have a lot of stuff, like a place to sleep or public showers so if people lost their homes completely them they can stay there as well. I hope I read that right, like a said I'm currently on pain killers so my brain is taking things weirdly. >.<
