Post Apocalypse/Military Roleplay OOC
Here's the OOC for the post-apocalypse roleplay. We decided on an astronomical event for the cause of the apocalypse, particularly a series of meteor showers, enough to decimate much of the globe. We'll be playing as members of the U.S. Military or others dragged along by them, and we're restoring order to American cities one at a time. The first city we're starting with is Boston, Massachussetts.
Here's my character sheet.
