WELCOME TO THE HAPLESS BUNCH
You are one of us, one of the few survivors left in the world. Something went down a few years back but now we must survive. We are the Hapless Bunch; those who were unfortunate enough to have to live through this. We run, we fight, we survive. Don’t stay in one place for too long otherwise they’ll catch up. What are we fighting you ask? Why do we continue to go from one place to another? To survive the walkers of course. They are mindless eating machines and worst of all they don’t stop no matter what. Only way to kill them is by a bullet in the head. No matter what happens just keep going. Those who don’t obey this rule will die. Now are you willing to survive with us or die on your own?
BEFORE THE APOCALYPSE
The pandemic started with the Chinese government. They hired the expertise of the Japanese to create a weapon they could use in the case of war breaking out. They only wished to defend their country but things got far too out of hand. What the Japanese had created was much more than they intended. It was a few years back that the research began. Japanese scientists were given the task of creating a disease, known as Project Extermination or Agent X as most scientists will say, that could be detonated and spread around a small area. This disease was supposed to come with a cure to ensure containment. That idea did not come to light as they soon found out there was no cure.
July 19, 2002 13:04 pm – They did their first testing of the experiment by injecting it into a captured spy of an enemy nation. The subject slowly died of the disease until all brain functions had stopped. It was a few hours later, at 17:56 pm to be precise, that the brain restarted and the subject had shown signs of rebirth. There was only one difference; the subject had only the primal instincts of the brain still active. All other functions had seized to exist. After more analysis the subject was terminated.
With a report to the higher ups about the results of the experiment, they were very pleased to hear success. It was time for a field test. Somewhere in an undisclosed location a small bomb was dropped filled with a gas form of the disease. The area was unaffected for the first two hours but then signs of death spread around. In the span of about ten minutes the whole area was filled with creatures roaming around mindlessly. There was nowhere for the creatures to escape to since the area was walled off to the rest of the world so the officials deemed it safe to leave them there.
September 3, 2002 07:22 am – The creatures were found to still be roaming aimlessly around the area. They had not died off or stopped functioning after it had been a few months. One of them was captured for further research. In the effort to try and cure it the creature mutated into something more deadly that then murdered half the team. It was stopped and put down but this lead to further development. The other dead scientists came back to life much quicker than expected and were thrown in the pit with the rest of the bunch.
In the next year a war broke out in Iraq. Americans hired the help of the Chinese who negotiated that they had a solution to their problem. During the second phases of the war, Chinese bombers dropped the gas in the unsuspecting country of Iraq which in turn led to the death of millions. The Americans thought the war was over and the Chinese thought they had everything under control. This was when everything went to hell. The creatures couldn’t be contained because their numbers far out matched their forces and they continued to infect the living through biting. Eventually the entire government was taken down and the disease spread throughout the country. Many tried to flee to other countries but no one escaped the disease. Now the whole world was infected and no one can save it.
