After thinking about what sort of Role-Play to start on this site for my big kickoff here it took a lot of deliberation. After thinking everything over for about a day or so before actually making my profile I finally decided to leave my comfort zone of Fantasy Role-Playing for a different take on things, in a more modern and popular setting that I believe others along with myself can thoroughly enjoy. The Walking Dead is still running strong after all these years of putting out comics and the show, I myself am an avid fan of the series and have personally enjoyed Role-Playing in this setting before. I would like to go out on a limb and say that I have seen there are other Walking Dead Role-Plays on this site currently, and my starting of this one is by no means a grab to steal any of your players. Just going to put that out there just in case someone gets upset. Now, with all that being said I think it is high time to delve deep into the details of this Role-Play. I want this thread to be just as much interested parties helping to flush the idea out as I do an actual interest check so any and all suggestions and criticisms are welcome. Survivor Stories A Walking Dead Role-Play LOCATION: San Jose, California STARTING CHARACTERS: 5-7 ROLE-PLAY LENGTH: Long WRITING LEVEL: Moderate-Advanced Synopsis This will, as the name suggests, be a Walking Dead Role-Play with all the grit drama and blood that entails. I want to flush it out and let everyone get their ideas and opinions across before I attempt to put the actual Role-Play together but all in all if you know the series you know what to expect. It will take part mostly in California, around the San Jose at first until/if the group decides to leave. Starting out I don't know if I want to do it right after the infection starts and let the group naturally come together or to set it a few months down the road where everyone already knows one another. Though in all honesty I prefer to start it in all the glorious chaos of the breakout. Please, PLEASE, only attempt to join this if you are a dedicated Role-Player that isn't going to randomly disappear on me after two or three posts. I like to move my Role-Plays along at an even and steady pace, requiring each participant to post a bare minimum of one post per day. I understand real life gets hectic so if you cannot post on a certain day let me know before hand so we can skip you accordingly. I want real characters, from real walks of life. That is what makes The Walking Dead so alluring, the fact that the characters are average ordinary people thrust into a bad situation. I do not want to see lots of cops and soldiers, or some random badass who can single handedly dispatch a dozen Walkers on his own. Try to be real with your characters as much as possible. The story will be grouped in seasons, just like the show. We will move towards one overall goal for our group per season, and then we will take a break for a day or so depending on what everyone wants before resuming after a short IC timeskip. This way the story moves along and everyone gets their needed downtime. Feel free to leave your comments an critiques. I am open for any and all suggestions as I said before, and though I have a little bit planned out for how I should start I want to hear all of your suggestions first. Nothing is set in stone as of yet so now is the perfect time to give me a heads up if something is not to your liking.
