It is Earth, modern day time. We are in a post-zombie apocalypse, with most of the human race becoming "Infected". Throughout the world, there are a number of people who are immune from the infection. They go from location to location, trying to find means of rescue, ranging from hospital helicopters to military APC units. Only by working together can these survivors find their way to evacuation safely.

Plot: In this campaign, the group of survivors start in a small city that is rapidly losing it's use as a safe spot. They decide to follow a rumor that there are plans for a rescue pickup in a nearby marsh due to its secluded location.

Goal: Yes, this RP has an actual ending planned, one way or another. The optimal goal is for all survivors to make it to the designated evacuation area. However, the world isn't always perfect. It is entirely possible that some survivors may not survive the journey, or even that their rescue chance will be ruined.

Weapons: Obviously, you are going to need to be equipped for the zombie apocalypse if you plan on getting down the street alive. Everyone starts with the following equipment:
-Pistol
-Choice between Pump Shotgun and Submachine Gun for primary weapon
-First Aid Kit (you can only carry one at a time)
-Melee Weapon of your choice (more information below)

[First Tier Weapons]
Pistol- Your standard issue 9mm companion. It has unlimited ammo (but still must be reloaded periodically), and is fairly accurate over long distances. Its firepower leaves something to be desired for, however. Also, you can acquire and extra pistol later in the campaign, allowing you to dual wield pistols while using them. When you are incapacitated (unless you are incapacitated and trapped in some fashion), the only weapon you can use is your pistol(s).
Melee Weapon of Choice- Your character is permitted to have one melee weapon at his/her disposal. This "weapon" must be something not normally intended for use as a long-term weapon and can be acquired by your character with relative ease. A good example would be a baseball bat. The exception to this rule is a (small) combat knife, should that be your fancy. You must create a small "back story" as to why your character has the melee weapon he/she has. Example: You use a combat knife because you were a U.S. Marine and have had it since your active duty.

[Second Tier Weapons] (chosen at beginning)
Pump Shotgun- The classic zombie killer. Very powerful at close range, weak and inaccurate at long range. Requires you to "pump" the next shell after every shot, and shells must be reloaded individually.
Submachine Gun (Uzi)- Automatic fire and better accuracy than the shotgun, especially at long range. It has less firepower than the shotgun at closer ranges, however. Ammo is reloaded via magazines.

[Third Tier Weapons] (acquired later in the campaign)
Auto-Shotgun- An advanced shotgun. It has semi-automatic fire (i.e. as fast as you can pull the trigger), and its firepower is even stronger than the pump action shotgun. It has more long distance accuracy than the pump now, but it still lacks in that category. Shells are still loaded individually.
Assault Rifle- An advanced submachine gun. It's automatic fire is (you guessed it) stronger than the uzi. It retains accuracy over long distances very well when fired in controlled bursts. It's firepower dwindles only slightly over distances, but is still not as powerful as the Auto-Shotgun in terms of raw power. Ammo is still loaded via magazines.
Hunting Rifle- A semi-automatic rifle unparalleled in range power and accuracy. Its shots are more powerful than the Assault Rifle all around, and a bit weaker than the Auto-Shotgun is at point blank range. It is equipped with a scope that allows for precision aiming when it is needed. It has a rather small ammo magazine, compared to the Assault Rifle, though.

[Explosives] (you can carry only one of the throwing explosives with you at a time. The containers, when held, will take up both your hands, rendering you unable to shoot until you drop or throw it away. You can use the container as a melee weapon, though.)
Pipe Bomb- Homemade explosives that are lightweight and easy to throw. They make a loud beeping noise, attracting normal Infected to it. By using it wisely, you can kill a large amount of Infected in one explosion. Not effective against Boss Infected.
Molotov- A surge of fire conveniently put in bottle form. Light 'er up and toss it to create a large radius of burning flames, igniting all types of Infected. It is very effective against Boss Infected, especially the Tank. Be wary, though, as an ill-aimed toss could lead to some severe burns for you and your friends.
Gasoline Tanks- Not as easy to carry around as a molotov bottle, but even more effective. Set in an area ahead of time or throw it forward, then shoot it to ignite a fire radius even greater than the molotov.
Propane Tanks- Works in similar fashion to the pipe bomb, although it requires more planning and set up to use effectively. If you can pull it off, exploding these near a Tank will make the beast lose its balance and stumble around, leaving it vulnerable to open fire.

Etc. Details
*This is meant to be a survival horror RP, so to stress the point, your character will undoubtedly be attacked and injured. Whether it be from Infected punches, slashes, large falls, set on fire, etc, injuries will stay with you unless treated. If left untreated, your character will suffer the consequences, ranging from infections (normal ones, not zombification) to imminent incapacitation. First aid kits can be found that will stabilize conditions and allow you to continue normally. Pain pills can also be acquired that will give you temporary relief, allowing you to get through tight situations where First Aid cannot be applied or is unavailable. If someone becomes incapacitated (i.e. injured to the point where they cannot get up from the ground), a teammate must rescue them.

*The standard human Infected are not your "Unnnngh brrrrraiiiiiinssss" slow-shuffle type zombie. When they are startled and know you are there, they will run after you. They can climb surfaces normal humans can't, and they can jump fairly far. When they reach you, they will try to punch and slash at you in lieu of biting/eating you.

*Shrill noises such as car alarms going off or heavy machinery activating can alert large hordes of Infected to the area in a heartbeat. Sometimes you may find you have to activate something zombie-attracting in order to progress.

*In addition to normal Infected, there are some Special Infected (also known as "Boss" Infected) that are distinguished from the normal zombies. They are mutated, and have special abilities at their disposal to attack you.

Image
Smoker- These tall, lanky Infected can be heard far away due to their excessive coughing and wheezing. They have a retractable tongue that can extend up to 100ft, and pull weights greater than their own to boot. They try to use their tongue to ensnare survivors and either trap them against something and crush them by pulling, or by reeling them in and slashing away. When they are killed, they release a large cloud of smoke that hazes vision and causes uncontrollable coughing. A constricted survivor must be saved by another survivor.

Image
Hunter- The Hunter is an agile Infected that can be distinguished by it's loud wails and growls it makes. It has the ability to leap incredible distances, and uses this to pounce unlucky survivors, trapping them. They then proceed to slash away until another survivor manages to either kill the Hunter or shove it off.

Image
Boomer An intensely obese Infected whose body is bulging to the brim with disgusting bile. This bile carries a stagnant scent that attracts a large horde of normal Infected. Normally, this bile just stays inside them. But when they see survivors, they will try to vomit this bile onto any humans they can, thus rendering a target of an oncoming Infected horde. In addition, when a Boomer is shot, they will explode, and if any survivors are too close, they will be covered in juices from the explosion, triggering the same effect.

Image
Tank-Imagine the Incredible Hulk. That pretty much sums up the Tank. It is a giant killing machine; it's only strategy is brute force. Its punches pack incredible power; enough to send survivors flying. They can even rip chunks from the ground (whether it be concrete, rock, or other) and throw them at you, or hit large objects like cars to send them rolling at you like a bowling ball. Only by working together can a Tank be brought down without a mortal loss to the team.

[Advanced Rules]
-All standard/common RP rules apply, such as grammar, spelling, etc.
-Because of the content of this RP, it is directed to be a more "advanced RP". Therefore, applicants are required to have been members of Psypoke for at least 2 weeks and have at least 25 posts places other than the Roleplaying Forum. Common barriers such as illiteracy and poor grammar will weaken your chances of being accepted.
-Due to the nature of this RP, too many survivors would just bog down the RP. Too little would make it too restricted, as well. Therefore, the max number of roleplayers involved (including the host) will be SIX PLAYERS SEVEN PLAYERS. If six seven doesn't work out for some reason, we may cut it down to 6. We will need a minimum of 4 to start, and will start with just 4 if no one else shows interest right away for too long.
-Like all RPs, godmodding is unacceptable. This RP will be tough even for RP regulars to avoid godmodding at times; magically being able to shoot the smoker that's ensnared you before you're constricted won't fly. Try your best to make this RP a cooperative experience, making everyone a part of the team.
-Your character is supposed to be unique and truly yours, yes, but try to remember this RP isn't about our character's developing and being focused on; it's about them working together to escape, regardless of their personality quirks and dispositions. There will not be any "story" events revolving around our characters, so don't apply expecting such things. The exception to this rule is the back story you create for your melee weapon.
-When talking out of character (OOC), please distinguish it by doing something such as double parentheses. This is a personal pet peeve of mine, though, so I won't be strict about it. example: ((Sorry, was busy last night guys))

I deeply apologize everyone; I accidentally left out the tidbit that I wanted profile applications to be PMed to me, not posted. It's my fault for not noticing, so to you three who applied today, I'll respond with my decision in this post. Past this point, though, any person who wants to apply for this RP MUST send their application to me via PM.

Jaguar: Nothing connects. All the parts don't seem to add up to one solid, final character. Your melee weapon and its back story stand out most here. It's all very obscure and seems so unrelated to your character; it almost seems like you're making up something bizarre like that just to obtain an actual melee weapon. Also, you say your character is very mature and intelligent. Yet, you say he is big headed and acts hastily without thinking. Those contradict and clash to make your character unrealistic. Denied. Edit: You've edited your profile immensely in the PMs you've sent me, and you are now approved. Don't disappoint me. :)

*superiorchingling*: Seriously, did you even consider creating your own original character? Or did you think no one would realize your character is a blatant, no, direct rip-off of a character from an emmy winning comedy/drama television series? Denied.

Beav232: Some parts of your profile are very solid. Others seem sort of "cookie-cutter" and transparent. Your character has some contradicting aspects as well, but not big enough ones to make your character unrealistic. I see possible great potential here, so I hate to leave you hanging, but I will get back to you later after some more applicants show me their stuff. If you want to try changing parts of your profile, you may PM me the changes. Also, excellent melee weapon backstory; just what I'm looking for. Edit: Also approved after the changes made to your profile in PMs.

Other physical features: A piecing on his right eyebrow
Clothing style: A black (now a bit pale) business suit that’s a bit roughed up, white shirt underneath, a Mr. Men tie that has a mind of it’s own, black baggy pants muddy from the ground to his knees, large army boots maybe one size too big (stolen from a corpse (before it then tried to eat him) when his shoe broke in half)

Personality
General demeanour: Attitude, confidence around people, outgoing

Best qualities: Quick to make decisions (to run/escape/use anything he can to flee), small and somewhat athletic, works better in a team, follows directions and orders well even in a panic
Worst qualities: Will not stay calm, talks a lot and sometimes never shuts up, quick to give up, never great alone, needs someone to hold his hand so-to-speak

Weapons
Primary Weapon: Submachine Gun (because what teen can actually handle a pump shotgun, amirite?)
Melee Weapon: Pocket knife

Background
Origin: A high school dropout. Jack was a no good hooligan who ran away from home after his mum left his abusive father. He later stayed over at a mates’ and made the decision to live there, though he needed an income. So, to pay rent, he had his go at jobseeking in a variety of places in his mate’s work suit. Though, when he thought he had finally bagged one after so many attempts, the unpredictable happens.
Melee Weapon Backstory: Before he dropped out of school, everyone thought it was cool to carry knifes. After ‘the tough kid’ put the knife to his throat, Jack made it his responsibility to get him back. He payed an ‘old friend’ (drug dealer) to ‘rough him up a little’ (scare the heck out of him).

Worst memory: Dad beating Mum, Jack coming home from school and whacking him over the head to save her. Thankfully the whack to the head didn’t kill him (I say thankfully because Jack still somewhat respected him somewhat, even though he hit his mum, he was still his father), just prevented him from remembering what happened.

((Alright, the RP may now officially begin. Before I make the first acting post, I have some last minute things to add about the roleplay for everyone:

[Character Relationships]
For the sake of convenience and getting things started faster, it is assumed that our characters met awhile back some time after the infection spread (let's say about a month). Therefore, our characters already know each other mildly. They all know each other's names and ages. They know basic facts most people who meet each character would learn, such as general likes/dislikes, common personality quirks, etc. However, they do not know everything about each other, especially very specific things. We all have fought Infected together, and we know what the boss infected are. So no one has to be all "OHSHI- WHAT IS THAT GIANT HULK THING AHHHH"

Summary: No need for our characters to "meet for the first time".

[Safe Houses]
Safe Houses are locations designated with solid steel doors. These doors, once everyone alive is inside, can be barred shut to prevent Infected from pursuing any further from previous points. However, once it is barred shut, backtracking is not an option. Safe Houses will always contain fresh supplies of ammunition and medkits, in addition to extra pump shotguns and submachine guns. The "exit" of a safe house is held shut by a bar; once it is removed, the Safe House is no longer considered "safe".

Summary: Safe Houses = Refresh Havens

[Flashlight]
All firearms (including your pistol) have flashlights attached to the front's bottom end. This light can be switched on/off as needed. Generally, you just leave it on.

[Survivor Status]
Every now and then when I post, I'll post an overview of where we are, our current goal, and our own personal status conditions. Hopefully it'll be useful to us.

[Last Minute Literacy Check]
This applies to you as the roleplayer. Please try to live up to these literate standards:
-Punctuate all of your sentences properly (helps us know which sentences are separate and when statements end)
-Capitalize only when necessary (names, pronouns, etc); you may make a word ALL CAPS to signify yelling or screaming, but please use it in moderation. An entire post of ALL CAPS will not make me a happy reader; try just capitalizing choice words. Example: "Ahhhh! Get this thing off me! GET IT OFF!"
-If you have your character thinking to himself, please make sure to designate in some way that you clearly are not doing anything else. I highly suggest using italics to signify a character thinking to himself. If you make it clear that you're thinking, you then do not need to say "..., Richard thought to himself." at the end. Saves space. :)


Alright, that ends my last minute add ons! If anything else arises, I'll be sure to address it in my posts. Let's have a good time, everyone!

Oh yeah: don't forget to grab first aid! :p))
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[Survivor Status]
Location: Maintenance room in broken down hotel; three stories up.
Goal: Determine Goal ((Lol))
Conditions: Everyone is 100% normal

((Pretend you guys sent me to get food from the vending machine, which we've been eating from since we've been here))

Locke entered the room hastily and slowly closed the door behind him.

"I hate to be the bearer of bad news, kids..." started Locke, "...but we have to make plans to leave ASAP. I don't have any food from the vending machine, because, well... I heard intense coughing downstairs. You know what that means."

Stepping towards the supply table, Locke grabbed one of the six first aid kits and slung it over his shoulder.

"This place is no longer safe," muttered Locke. "Rumor or not, we have to follow the lead we learned about there being possible evacuation means at the Nekoosa Marsh. It's our only hope of getting out of here for good."

Locke's back made light cracking as he bent over to grab his shotgun. He loaded eight shells into the firearm and pumped it once.

"So, who's ready to fight for their lives?"

A younger teen quickly pocketed his knife he was playing with. Jack was sitting in the corner of the Maintenance Room. He picked his pistol from the floor beside him and held it pointed towards the floor between his feet. He lent on his knees as he sat up.

"Are you serious?!" he whispered in a tone, distressed mainly, "Locke! Who's stupid idea was it to run up three stories of this stupid building anyway?!"

Jack huffed, taking the safety off.

"I think that was my stupid idea but if we had not we could have been killed." Lewis snapped. He put away his notepad, that he had been drawing on, and put out his ciggarette and was ready to go.

Tom heard the arguing from his bed. He got up to see what was going on "Shut it. We need to make it out of here alive, and we can't be at each others' throats. We need a solid plan if we are to go any further. You say you heard coughing? That's got to be a Smoker. Any ideas. We don't need a 'Run out and shoot it' plan unless we are far away from that tounge of his. We're too high up to jump." Tom thought hard of a plan. He grabbed a medkit, and his Uzi and loaded a bunch of shells into it. His pistol was already armed from a previous fight that drove them to where they are. He reloaded it and waited.

((I'm not supposed to be back yet and mt head hurts so much that I don't know why I'm online but here it goes.))

Charles sighed. Typical, even in the face of apocalypse, no especially in the face of apocalypse they fight like dogs over a bone. I'm surprised we made it even this far.

"As the old man said, they're downstairs. Personally doesn't surprise me as they are everywhere else, why not there as well. We got three options as far as I see. We can go up which will get us nowhere fast, we can find a window which unless we are really lucky is going to get us there faster than we would like, or we can go down."

With the fluency of somebody with years of experience in firearms Charles switched the clip in his pistol. "My personal vote is going down as it has the potential of actually getting us somewhere. If anybody else has a suggestion I am perfectly open to them."

"Yeah. My suggestion is instead of walking right into the line of fire, we do this in such a way that we surround the Smoker and take him out." Tom pulled put a map of the hotel and set it on the table "Now there are four entrances to the lower level. There is five of us. Two of us will go down the back way and lead a sneak attack. Preferably someone who knows what they're doing, so me and Locke will take the back route, Charles will take the route to his left, Jack will take the right, and Lewis can take the main way. One of us will most likely be captured by his tounge, then the rest of us can free him. Let's roll."

"Well we have to assume that there may be more than one smoker" Taji stated very calmly. "For all we know there may hundreds of infected on the lower levels of the hotel". As he was getting up he turned and looked at the door while straightening his shirt . "My vote is that we try to find a fire escape and sneak out of the hotel that way we don't attract more infected than we need too".

"Cool your jets, hooligan," said Locke, glaring at Jack. He did so while adjusting his pipe wrench into his belt loop.

"I like the dealer's idea most," grinned Locke, "but the bookworm's idea is more tactical and advantageous. Like Taji said, we'll attract less Infected if we take the fire escape, seeing as it's a direct route of stairs all the way down to the emergency exit."

Locke frowned.

"The problem, however, is that we actually blocked the fire escape when we came here," explained Locke. "There's not that much to move, so we can unblock it easily. This poses a second problem; we'll be exposed while moving the small blockade."

He shuffled towards the door and peered out the peek-hole they cut.

"Therefore, I have a plan." Locke continued. "Four of us will move the blockade out of the way while two of us guard the back of the moving group. If most of you agree to this plan, I volunteer myself for lookout."

"Righteo, don't bust any lungs, ya old geezers..." Jack quietly said to himself, lifting himself from the cold floor and rubbing warmth back into his body.

"No way I'm following the badged-hothead over there. I'm definitely in the majority. Plus, you guys already know I'm not a freckin' one-man army like old gramps here. Just do your best to stay quiet, for my sake," he pulled a bag of his first aid around his shoulder, strapped it around his back and readied his pistol.

"Let's hurry up and do this before I lose my nerve. Who's opening the barrier with me?!"

"Well I don't think I am the best shooter so I will help move the barrier, but hang on what if Taji is right, for all we now all hell could of let loose already and they could be heading up stairs. So we will have to move fast but keep quite. We want to get as little attention as possible." Lewis said. He braced himself and then reached for the door handle. He twisted the knob pull the door so he could look out and it let out a loud creak, the others glared at him. He peeked outside to what appeared to be a clear hallway.

((Minor unimportant instance this time but in the future remember that unless you have direct permission don't control other people's characters. OK this time as I'm pretty sure we would have all glared anyways but just something to think about in the future.))

"I would like to suggest that beautician and Tom help with removing the barricade so that its done by people with at least a bit of muscle. That means since Taji doesn't quite seem up to it and little Jack here has so graciously declined the honor, I'll go with the old man and make sure things don't go to hell while you all manage the grunt work."

((Like flaming_fox said, please refrain from controlling other people's character's; that falls under godmodding. Again, like he said, this was a pretty minor instance, so don't fret about it too much. Just avoid making a similar mistake in the future. :wink: ))

"You're gonna be with me, Charles?" asked Locke. "Splendid choice. We'll make a good lookout team."

Locke approached Lewis and put his hand on his shoulder.

"Good show of initiative, soldier. Now get to moving that junk!" said Locke with a smirk. Following that, he carefully strafed out into the hallway and looked down the corridor.

All clear... for now.

"We're clean out here! Let's get to it!"

"Allright lets get to it" Taji said looking at the others. "We need to go ahead and start moving things around so we can sneak on out of here" As Taji was saying this he slid his glasses of his head and cleaned them on the bottom of his shirt. After he was done cleaning his glasses Taji moved on over to the fire escape to try to move some of the stuff "ACK!" As Taji was moving a piece of the blockade he got a small cut from a rusty piece of nail. "Blast that smarts but I am ok though" As Taji was saying this the small cut bled only a little.

(I will be unable to post on here untill maybe Friday for reasons I will not share. I give my permission for R_R to take control of my character if this slows things down)

Why do I bother, These guys don't trust me, especialy that dealer. "Pray you've had your tetanus shot. Here, let me help with that." Tom picked up a big piece of metal blocking the window and threw it aside. It landed with a loud CLINNNNNNG. There was on more First aid kit on the table, so Tom took it. "For the road. The trip won't be easy. Everybody ready?"

((Roger that, thanks for giving us the heads up.))

Locke turned around to check on Taji.

"You alright, sport?" asked Locke. "You ought to exercise more caution. We can't afford to suffer serious injuries that don't come from the zombies themselves."

It was then that Locke heard the coughing again.

I let my guard down...

By the time he spun around to aim his shotgun, a tongue had ensnared his torso.

"Son of a...!" yelled Locke, whose voice was cut off when he started moving. The Smoker was reeling him in. His eyes darting to the end of the hall, he could see the Smoker partially hiding behind the door to the main staircase. He struggled to free himself, but to no avail.

Acting as quickly as he could Charles let off two small bursts of about 3 shots each at the smoker. Most of the shots were lost into the door the infected was hiding behind but one of them managed to graze the smokers tongue forcing it to let go of Locke. Before he could finish it off it ducked away behind the door again.

"We need to move fast, they know we're here now so its only a matter of time before a horde comes."

((Seeing as beav won't be here for a week now and I know that R_R is going to be busy most of this week maybe it would be best to put the RP on hold for the week as to keep things from getting confusing.))
