    The Colony of Eden - A Zombie based RPG SU (Always Accepting)

    *Tip*-It is recommended (but not required) you read the Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brookes as this RPG is (somewhat) inspired by it.

    Sign-ups will remain open indefinitely.

    ( Part of intro ----->)He comes from the grave, his body a home of worms and filth. No life in his eyes, no warmth in his skin, no beating of his (chest). His soul as empty and dark as the night sky. He laughs at the blade, spits at the arrow as they will not harm his flesh. For eternity, he will walk the earth, smelling the sweet blood of the living, feasting upon the bones of the damned. Beware, for he is the living dead.
    -Obscure Hindu Text, circa 1000 B.C.E.

    It is 2030. The war for humanity rages on against all Undead. We are on the brink of loss with very few spots of society still remaining. While the government in hiding continues its façade of a political system, The ordinary citizens of the former U.S.A have been left to suffer. In lieu of this surprising turn of events, those who have decided not to give up sought out shelter in the tundra of the Yukon creating the first zombie safe-haven. When the living dead triumphed, the world degenerated into utter chaos. With the total collapse of law-and-order, small bands of individuals emerged to assert their authority. Looters, bandits, and common thugs prey on the survivors, taking whatever they want and indulging in whatever pleasure they can find. What police and military forces are lefty serve as protection for the government in hiding, deserted in attempts to save their families, or degenerated into bandits themselves. Isolated cities became battlegrounds, with scattered groups of abandoned citizens fighting to defend barricaded areas from both zombies and human renegades. The countryside flourishes with zombies. With cities picked clean of humanity, the undead fan out in search of prey. Country homes and suburban neighborhoods are torn to shreds as citizens flee, attempt to stand and fight, or wait helplessly for the slouching multitudes to engulf them. We are part of the colony of Eden. Every day is a continues fight for your life. All males over the age of fifteen are drafted into the military while females have the option to join if they wish. You are one of the elite soldiers part of the Z.A.P (Zombie Assassination Project). With the upcoming epidemic "crawling" (hehe) closer each minute we need to protect the colony with the best protection possible and eradicate the undead before the worst possible scenario is in effect. A period of silence unknown for generations and a world ruled by the undead.

    Name- Maru Ichiraku

    Age- 19

    Gender- Male

    Personality- Maru Ichiraku is a lone wolf sort of character. He cares for no one but himself due to the zombification of his whole family.

    Backstory- Maru once lived a happy life with his mother Sakura who ran a church in their hometown. Although non-religious, Maru enjoyed helping out the church in a variety of ways. He made the best pies you would've ever tasted and the most mouth-watering cupcakes imaginable. Maru's father was in the military so he was never home but on a rare occasion he showed up on the door step and would stay for a few days before going back to the base where he was stationed. When the alarms were raised, Maru and his mother managed to survive by staying in the cellar of their church, a week or so before this all happened Sakura got a call from her husband Madara saying to be prepared for the worst in a groaning type of speech like he had gone mad, when asked what was wrong with him Madara responded "I've seen some things that no one man should ever see, I was even attacked by a little girl! There was something strange about her but in a strange way I feel good....."he then Hysterically laughed "Just be prepared for the worst cause when I come home it wont be a visit".... The phone line then cut off. Back to present day. Screams and moans could be heard from outside from people, but it didn't sound like they were acting normal. A loud bang as if wood was breaking could be heard from upstairs...Maru and Sakura went to see what it was and they were astonished to see what was in front of them Madara and around 9 other men were there in their in Armor but for what reason? Seven of the men went outside to fight what was supposedly zombies while Madara and his 2 most trusted men stood before Maru. Madara commanded "Take them both downstairs now! I've got something in store for my wife!" he then laughed. Maru and his mother were thrown down the wooden stone steps leading down to the cellar. Madara and his men tied up Sakura and killed her right before Maru's very eyes, Madara shoving his crest embedded sword into her chest while she screamed in agony until she finally past. They left her hanging there as if she was just a play thing. Madara then pulled out a pistol from behind his right thigh, pointed it at Maru, and started to softly weep. Just before Madara pulled the trigger, 18 zombies bashed through the door with there bloody eyes staring intently at Madara and a Ghastly Moan piercing the soldiers ears. In the confusion, Maru was able to snatch his fathers pistol, shoot the soldiers, and continue to destroy the zombies with no looks of letting up. That fateful night left him scared for all eternity. It pained him to see the horrific process of the undead shatter through windows and zombiefy all those soldiers. As he fled with tears flowing down his face, He swore he saw his parent rise from death and chased him. He met a girl named Brandy along the way. She had shared a similar fate and was the same age so Maru agreed to travel with her. As they meandered aimlessly across ghoul-infested territory, they were rescued from the brink of death by scouts from Eden. It is there where they found his new home at last.

    Image/Looks- Small and skinny, Maru wears the Standard light Kevlar vest covering the hands and arms which is bite resistant which is a full black with midnight blue strips down the sleeves. He also wears tight black leather leggings. He has a medium build and short-closely cropped black hair. He has piercing hazel eyes that seems to pierce into ones soul with a 1000-Yard Stare.

    Theme Song- Alone Again (Naturally)-Gilbert O' Sullivan

    Weaponry- His trusty M1 Carbine is his ranged weapon of choice with the Colt Peacemaker that killed his father as a side arm. Melee weapons are a different story though. His indoor choice of melee combat is a titanium custom made trench spike. Anywhere else it is a titanium infused refurbished steel katana. He wears the Standard light Kevlar vest covering the hands and arms which is bite resistant. He is an excellent sniper with an itchy trigger finger and a cool head.

    Have you read The Zombie Survival Guide?- Yes

    Skills- Effective at all ranges, Military Strategist, Most knowledgeable of zombies, Served in the Great Siberian War (Served between 2025-2028), Quietest at close-quarters combat

    AzukanAsimbu Petal Paladin

    nope, but i know the basics

    Animals cant be infected, they die instead etc

    But do the zombies run or do the walk?

    littlea53 Prince of Darkness

    As quoted from the book..
    "The walking dead tend to move at a slouch or limp. Even without injuries or advanced decomposition, their lack of coordination makes for an unsteady stride. The fastest have been observed to move at barely 1 step per 1.5 seconds." And yes the book is in front of me right now at this exact moment.
    This isn't like 28 days later where they sprint to you. If you have ever played Nazi Zombies it's like the zombies on the 1st few levels.

    Please read the RPG Rules before posting here. Your plotline needs to be at least 400 words long. Appearance and personality are both mandatory for the SU sheet, and should be at least four lines.

    Please make these edits to your role-play.

    Titan500 Solar Panels

    Name: Daniella Spring

    Age: 22

    Gender: Female

    Personality: To people who don't know her, Daniella seems like a rather kind character at first, caring for the injured, calming down crying children, smiling at people, etc. But that was only part of her personality. The other part was a slightly foul-mouthed, gun-loving, anti-pervert, machine-tinkering, undead killing girl with a very short fuse.

    History: Daniella's father was a mechanic. Long before the invasion of the first undead, when she was still a young child, she liked to help her father tinker with machines and cars. It was a happy life for her in those days when she continued fixing and playing with machines.

    During the zombie invasion, Daniella and her father ended up getting involved with Eden. The two became the main mechanics of the colony, helping fix up vehicles and machines.

    Appearance: Daniella has short raven-black hair and chocolate brown eyes. She wears a blue jacket over her brown shirt, and has long grey pants.

    Theme Song: "Loaded Gun" by The Dead 60s.

    Weaponry: Daniella has a massive armory of weapons underneath her bedroom, and her own garage. In most situations she carries a Soviet AK-47, a titanium crowbar, a 12-gauge shotgun, a scythe, a Beretta Pistol, a Modified Police-issue Stun-Gun and a large supply of molotov cocktails. She wears modified titanium chain mail on her limbs under her clothing, which helps protect her from zombie bites. Her vehicle of choice is a modified Monster Truck with a revolving heavy machine gun.

    Have you read The Zombie Survival Guide: Yes.

    Skills: Daniella is a genius with mechanics. She can rig up a bomb with a few things from a kitchen, an alarm clock and some string. She also knows how to hot-wire a car.

    Job within the Colony: Mechanic

    interesting... Accepted!

    littlea53, your plot is looking a lot better, but still falls a bit short. It would be helpful if you could give more information on Eden: where is it located, how big is the population, what kinds of buildings do the live in, how do they get food/resources? How is it governed, what kinds of jobs do people have - how sophisticated is this society? Also only males go into the army but ZAP members can be any age or gender?

    Additionally, Appearance and Personality each need to be at least 100 words long, no exceptions. You as the GM need to edit your sign-up sheet to set the example, and not accept SUs that cannot follow basic forum rules.

    If you're having trouble giving detailed information, the Making a Sign-Up thread has plenty of advice. :)

    wow, all of these are good....
    and littlea, i have another question (as i havent read the book), i was playing DeadFrontier, and theres specially mutated zombies, spidery ones, tentacle armed ones, ones with long tonuge, ones that vomit, giant fat ones that breathe lethal gas

  15. CptDrDigi

    CptDrDigi Chickity China

    I can ansewer this for you.
    No, if this rp is based off the book, all the zombies are slow.
     
  16. littlea53

    littlea53 Prince of Darkness

    thank you digi. And yes. The zombies are for all purposes, human. unless the human before had spidery tentacles coming out of its moth, than the zombie will not. Think of the human body as a tool box. the zombie has those tools, and ONLY those tools at its usage.

    BTW: Digi, Accepted and nice choice of weapons!
