It's April of 2013; a lovely day in the suburbs of NYC. You're going about your spring cleaning (or whatever), when you hear this broadcast: "The dead are...coming back to life." The guy who says it is nervous and fidgety, wearing what looks like a lab coat. "We haven't determined the cause of it yet, but...ah..." He looks over his shoulder, and then leans into the camera. "Lock your doors. Board up your windows. Arm yourself with whatever you have; frying pans, shovels, broomsticks, anything. Don't go outside, and DON'T GET BITTEN." The TV screen goes dark.
Appearance (pic or description; anime is fine)
Bio (optional; not too dramatic. Remember, you're jut an average person before all this):
Weapons (household stuff; see backstory for examples):
Armor (again, just household stuff):
1. No godmodding
2. No major rivalries between characters (you can have little spats, or even grudges, like "he killed my toad in preschool," but remember we're a team)
3. Limit 2 characters per person
4. This is NPC stuff or just part of the story
5. No automatic "team leader." We'll see how the beginning plays out and decide on it later.
Feel free to make suggestions for additional characters or PM me with questions. Let me know if you have a better idea for the title; I wasn't sure what to call it.
