PostSubject: [OOC] Organ Trail RP   Wed Oct 21, 2015 1:27 am


OOC: The name of the RP is a play on the name 'Oregon Trail' and has nothing to do with the content of violence within the roleplay.

The whirring of helicopter blades. The rattle of automatic fire in the distance. The dreadful moans of the freakishly hideous undead. These were the sounds that filled Virginia that fateful day of October 21st, 2015. The American Military had been pushed back by the ever growing hordes of ravenous undeath, and finally had decided the East had been lost. Desperately, the U.S. Army staged a final defense of Washington D.C., hording survivors in Chinooks and flying them off to safe zones littering the country. As the last soldiers made it into their evac helicopters, and faded into the night sky, hundreds of thousands would be ferried away to the midwest and further. The military was holding strong in the midwest, showing no signs of faltering amongst the hellish onslaught. For many, they had survived. They could live out their lives in the West, free from the undead scourge. The U.S. Military withdrew from the East Coast and focused its man power on the midwest, halting the advance of the plague and its victims entirely. Victory never tasted so bittersweet. However... you haven't had the opportunity to taste it quite yet...

As those final cargo helicopters lifted off, you and your fellow survivors found yourselves stuck in the aid camp, nearly overrun. The D.C. Safe Zone, as it were, destined to be your tomb. But you were determined. You set off for the last fortification the military had left behind. There, you met with other survivors, all sharing the desire to make it west. To make it to safety. With a small convoy of vehicles, all the food you could carry, and your pockets stuff with brass, you and your group leave for the Midwest. Welcome to the Organ Trail. Salvation is but half a country away...


So it's Halloween! And the fine folks on the GUN Skype Chat came up with the bright idea to utilize GUN for a RP! We have sections for them, but they're rarely utilized for such a construct. It sprouted from when one of us found a 'Zombie Survival Sheet,' and we started filling our own out to create characters for a possible Roleplay scenario. We figured, Why not on GUN? So here it is, the first ever GUN RP about Max Brook's Zombies and the Oregon Trail.

The story follows you, the players, on your journey to safety in the midwest, surrounded by hordes of walkers at every step you take. Who are the walkers? They're everyone else who wasn't lucky enough to be with your group or the military, and were turned into fodder for the deadly virus known as Solanum. Solanum is the zombie plague which spreads through bites and scratches from infected individuals who have succumbed. It has also, unfortunately, devastated the U.S. East Coast and most of the Asian Mainland. As the rest of NATO races to put out the fires in the Middle East and across Asia, the U.S. Military holds strong in the midwest United States. The Walkers are brought down only by a blow to the head, but thanks to enough zombie fanatics assuming this, the information has spread like wildfire. However, these infected are also attracted to sound, like that of gunfire especially. Their moans tear through the psyche of even the most hardened individual, and their sight and stench work to sicken an individual as they close in for the kill. There's no cure for this disease, save one. Bullets.

Bullets in this day and age are plentiful, either scattered around Military Aide Camps or even in abandoned civilian gun stores. However, getting to them is another story. In the initial days of the outbreaks, distressed civilians rushed to their local gun stores to arm themselves for the coming hordes. It would've worked - if certain infected individuals hadn't snuck themselves among their ranks; hoping for nobody to notice them and kill them before they could turn. Because of these individuals, the most abundant areas to scavenge are surrounded by hordes. Do you really need the spare brass?

As for you, individually, however... you are with a group of people with similar interests. They're from all walks of life, and have all just happened to stumble upon one another in their time of greatest need. From Elite Soldiers to a few teenagers with spiked up baseball bats, and even a few people who you could've sworn are from Horror flicks themselves, they're all a part of this journey alongside you. Love 'em, hate 'em, they just may save your life out there. Or take it ruthlessly.

The Roleplay will end on November 10th. If the party has not reached its destination, they will be caught in the U.S.A.F.'s Scorched Earth Operation, and promptly eliminated. Stay active!

Rules -


- All GUN Rules Apply

- KEEP IT PG-13 (No overly depicted violence RP, absolutely no sexual rp or drug rp.)

- Your character must fit within the limits of what's possible today. That means no Power Armor.

- One Paragraph minimum for I.C. Posts

- No God-Tier Characters - Everyone has the equal chance of death.

- Keep it IC. No OOC Arguments over IC Matters.

- No Metagaming: Using information gained OOCly to perform IC actions. (I.E. Knowing someone's infected without your character knowing it, but still roleplaying as if your character knew.)

Application

Character Name: Lawrence Fischer
Gender: Male
Appearance: (Below)
Age: 34
Height: 5'9
Weight: 198lbs (89.8kg)
Previous Occupation: Supermarket Clerk
Current Occupation: Pack Rat
Primary Skillset: Scavenging

Biography: As far the Lawrence Fischer was concerned, the apocalypse was the best thing that ever happened to him. Fischer's life before was one full of bitter contempt for nearly everyone he knew, his parents, his co workers, his girlfriend, and especially the neighbor's dog (whom often dumped on his lawn). Boxing and spa sessions didn't quite give him the stress relief he was looking for, not until the dead came back from the dead anyway. Now Fischer takes a cathartic, almost gleeful pleasure in putting down the ones that may have one called him friend and rummaging through the remains of supermarkets for goodies. With no responsibilities and nothing to lose, Fischer couldn't be happier with the situation (as long as it involves him making it out alive).

Lawrence "Fenris" Fischer:
 

Equipment:  M1 Garand Service Rifle with a Bayonet, Glock 19, Large Backpack, Extra En Bloc Clips, 2 Molotov Cocktails, a Canteen, a First Aid Kit, 5 Road Flares

Character Name: Vladislov

Gender: Male

Appearance (Image or Desc. is Fine): Caucasian, Black hair.

Age:In his twenties

Height: About 5'74"

Weight: 153lbs

Pre-Apocalypse Occupation: Criminal.

Current Occupation: Scavenger, bandit.

Primary Skillset : Ghost.

Short Biography: Before the apocalypse, he dealt in all things illegal. Contract killing, smuggling, gun running, you name it, he might have done it. The apocallypse didnt change much in his personallity. He already knew not to trust people, given his past... "job". He now has an habit of... disapearing. He would stick around some groups, and then, bang. Nowhere to be found. Sometimes, he comes back. Maybe some days later, maybe a year later, maybe never. This has been a very helpful skillset, especially when it comes to robbery and infiltration.

Character Card:
Spoiler:
 

Description of Items Carried (Describe your Character Card): He has an automatic 5,56 rifle with an integral suppressor, nicknamed "Silent Killer". He also possesses a 9mm pistol and a butterfly knife. He wears a grey-blue hoodie, some dark brown construction pants, boots and handwraps. He also sometimes wears a sports mask to protect him. In the non-violent category, we have a lighter and some thermite, you can probably see why. He also has an ammo bag pouch thing. His last 3 items are a bottle of alcohol, some duck tape and a poisonous solution. He carries all these in this lovely blue duffle bag.
