A Closed-Group RP OOC
I'm sure we already know the plot and whatnot. If you need me to repost it I will. Anyways this is for discussions and other plot development. Will re-post my CS too in here.
NAME: Abraham Carmine
NICKNAME: Abram or Abe, Doc
OCCUPATION: Med Student/Office Assistant
APPEARANCE: Abram is five-ten with a defined, muscle-toned body. He was an athlete all through high-school and through his undergrad years in college. It wasn't until he started graduate school that he stopped playing sports. Abe has a head full of golden-brown hair, which is long and boyish. His hair stands in front, with a cow-lick being the main focal point for his hair.
The med student also has a pair of sharp, cool grey-blue eyes and a chiseled jawline. He is still a handsome looking man, even for being deprived of first-world luxuries.
PERSONALITY: Abram is a sweet, kindhearted man. He's gentle to a fault, even though he's got such a big strong physique. He has a strong sense of just and is extremely supportive and trustworthy, a genuinely good, dependable friend. The downfall of Abe is that even though he believes in his friends so highly he lacks confidence in himself. He doubts everything he does and is very wishy-washy, wanting to be a more defined and confident leader.
HISTORY: Before the infection Abe was your typical jock turned doctor. He followed the path his father laid before him and went on playing sports and entering medical school. The young man was going to be a doctor, a dream his father had set in stone for the both of them. Abram obediently followed, never questioning or diverting from the path. It wasn't until the infection that Abram felt lost. He couldn't save his family from the sickness, so what good was he as a doctor?
With his family gone, especially his father, the med student had no path to follow. He was on his own, and he did whatever he could to live. Traveling, leaving his hometown, he left to find another life or rather to live life. On the road he met a few stragglers just like him. They were kind, some strange, but kind nonetheless. They were unlike the other humans who turned into savages that plagued the world.

NAME: Dallas Landon Bryce
NICKNAME: Sarge, Cowboy
OCCUPATION: Sergeant in the U.S Marines, instructor at Cape Pendleton, a history teacher once he finished his service.
APPEARANCE: Dallas is a modest man in structure, standing at 5'10", though he has a very fit build due to his time in the Marines and his constant exercise. His hair is a deep brown, almost black, cut neatly into a crewcut style that he has grown so accustomed to. He also has a full goatee, letting it grow out after his deployments. He has a series of small scars on his right cheek from a fragmentation grenade, but otherwise has no other visible scars. His skin is tanned fairly well from his time overseas, complementing his dark brown eyes. At first glance, though not particularly large, he is a stern man. He usually wears a navy blue vest over a black sweater, blue, worn jeans and running sneakers, suggesting he is often outside and on the move.
PERSONALITY: Dallas has a deep found loyalty to those who he can trust in, due to his service. He'll go out of his way for those individuals, and is absolutely against leaving anyone behind despite the risks. Because of this however he may also be seen as clingy, not wanting to lose those around him. And perhaps he is, his combat experience certainly left some emotional scars. He can be restless at times, and is prone to acts of violence when threatened. He needs the company of others to deal with these issues, and since the "Event" because he no longer has his therapy, more than ever. At his best he can be a strong leader, reliable friend and his experience and knack for tactics make defusing the nastiest of situations simple. At his worst he is rash, reckless and unpredictable. He is almost like a coin, two sides that can flip at any time.
HISTORY: Dallas was born in Bridgeport, California to the son of a Marine. His father, a lifetime serviceman, was killed in combat in the first Gulf War, making life difficult for Dallas and his mother. During highschool, after his father's death, he was in and out of trouble, near ending up in prison before being offered the choice of joining the service. He was reluctant at first, not wanting a part of the group that took his father from him, but eventually he agreed and enlisted, joining in time for the Invasion of Iraq. His determination and aptitude for strategy lead him to promotion quickly, and before retirement he achieved the rank of Sergeant, being disharged for his questionable mental health. Being left out of the military he pursued a teaching degree, history in particular, and within a few years found himself teaching. Up until the apocalypse he had been a high school teacher, now the recent events have brought out his training again.

Frank is a weedy 5'9, not as tall or prominent as some of the others he has always been castigated because of his weak appearance. However he is handsome and holds a strong jaw line often covered in stubble. His hair is a dark brown and his eyes a similar amber colour.
Frank is quite a hard person to get along with, convinced that anyone and everyone has it out for him he has taken to fending for himself. He is very intelligent and that had gotten him far in life, but when the virus hit and mankind was brought to it's knees Frank had to reluctantly find help.
Sarcastic and quite bare with his humor he can offend most people with the first words he speaks, even if he doesn't intend to.
Frank tends to be one of those distrusted people, many would swear blind that if they were in need of help in dire situations frank would only think of himself and run while he could. Selfish he is but human he remains, Frank convinces himself that he needs to keep the group alive because they protect and help him, but in reality it's just his justification for wanting people around him as this small group could be considered the best friends he has ever had.
As an Engineer in the previous world Frank did very well for himself, building great machines that can carve through mountains or suspend homes on the sides of mountains he was quite well known in the engineering world. Now though that has all in the past and the once high life he led is lost. His skill set has become incredibly useful however, finding what he can among the overgrown cities and their abandoned buildings he has scraped together pieces of metal and wires that could become very useful in the future, with an engineers mind he is able to build a plethora of instruments that might one day save a life, be it a comrade or his own.

Well I think we should sort out what we are actually going to do. I don't want to start it up and just say...so what now? we need a plan to start with and something that will make the whole arcing plot interesting. Otherwise, I'll just get bored quickly.
Likewise, we'll have to decide on a basic plot at least.
- - - -
I think a good starting point might be a small town and making our way to a nearby city. That'll give us a destination at least, and we can certainly come up with plenty in between the two locations.
That sounds good. Are we traveling by foot or by one of the last few cars that are working? If we have a car it might be loud, but then again it would give us a little more reason to go to the city, to find gas and other kinds of supplies because maybe the little town doesn't have any left.
I would start without it but maybe finding the parts to one could be something to do when we reach the city?
What Blight said. Moving on foot is probably our best bet, though repairing a car is always possible later on :)
Awesome. So we're in a little town about to head to the city to look for more supplies and hopefully a car. Sound good?
Sounds good to me :) Gives us at least a goal to work towards, what happens in between we'll leave up to chance.
Did you guys want to repost your CSs too? Just so we can look back at this OOC for'em.
Nevermind, I can do it and just put it on my first post. That'll make it easier to find and see.
