It was just a regular day; business as normal as the Big Deal's Grocery in New York city. It was like any other Friday in January, nothing out of the ordinary. That is, however, until someone got sick and then curled over dead in the store. That is when things slowly start getting crazier and crazier. People are getting sick and dying all over in the streets. It's not until they get up and search for their next meal when everyone becomes alarmed. The Day The Dead Walked takes place one week after a plane crashed into Queens. Not much had been released about it, but everyone who lives in that area of Queens was put under house arrest and quarantine, and hazmat teams were called in. It was some sort of cargo plane, but nobody is truly sure what the cargo was. The main focus of the roleplay is about the employees of Big Deal's Grocery, and can feature one or two customers. Further down the road if you want to play a cop or a paramedic or anyone but the characters we have been playing, feel free to ask. You can play two characters, so long as you kill one of them off. There is no true plot line; these characters need to survive. Plots and sub plots will develop as we go along. As with everything that includes zombies other groups of survivors are going to be found, which gives new comers the chance to join in. I'm trying to avoid too many people being over powered characters such as soldiers and such, but hunters and cops will be allowed. Let's say your father was a cop or you like to go hunting, odds are you have a gun somewhere in your home. Remember: none of us are zombie killing experts, but odds are we have seen a zombie film or two. We all know the basics: shoot it in the head, don't get bit. Also, the title isn't a rip off of The Walking Dead...I got it from a Six Feet Under song. The grocery store has all the isles and stuff a normal grocery store has, but it also has a liquor store, a professional photo store, an electronics store, a coffee store, and is attached to a mattress king. This isn't a mall, it's more o a "superstore". The store is in a plaza with a Gas Station, a Home Depot across the parking lot, a Burger King, a store that sells underground rap and underground metal merchandise and albums, a concert hall and a West 49. There will be possibilities to find new characters when/if any of the main group members investigate the other stores. Janitors and security guards are allowed to be played, just PM me and ask me first. This is supposed to be more horror than action, meaning the strong silent type isn't exactly wanted in this cast of characters. Interesting ccharacters, such as characters with schizophrenia or characters who have PTSD. The more insanity and craziness you can bring to the table, the better the roleplay will be.
