Surviving: The End - Season 3 OOC
Surviving: The Synopsis: The year is 2017. It's been just over 8 months since the world, for all extensive purposes, ended and the zombies took over every day life. At the onset of the outbreak, wars broke out, several countries launched nuclear strikes at one another and it was all pointless: the hordes at everything in their path.
A small CDC center in Missouri was set up to quarantine immune individuals, humans had an immunity rate at just around 10%, and those people were all taken in because they had a knowledge of something that would be imperative when the country started to rebuild.
Only it will not rebuild.
Now there are 2 groups of survivors:
The Minnesota Group - besieged by risen animals, several individuals need to try to escape the beasts, and hopefully live in the process. The group has heard of a safe area south of them in Iowa, but were content to ride it out and enjoy the safety of the house but all that has been turned around now. Where is PETA when you need them?
The Missouri Group - a group of groups, they had eventually reached, one way and one time or another, a secure farmhouse in Missouri. Over the course of several days, coincidence brought them together and their numbers, and the tension has been growing since. Growing until one day, flame was set to the already dry tinder in the form of a large group of armed bandits. A small group of these Survivors had met the bandits a few days prior and it wasn't pretty. Now, pinned down and almost surrounded, they need to figure a way out...
The Awakening: Valentine's Day 2017. This is the day that the first bodies started to reanimate.
RA: Reanimates. There are a myriad of other slang terms, but the US Government classified them as reanimates, and there are 4 forms based on blood type. **NOTE** There is no way to LOOK at an RA and dictate it's classification type. They physically look the same and only after varied degrees of watching and studying can they generally be differentiated.
(O blood type, approx 43% of Americans): This type of zombie is slow, dumb and come in great numbers. They are commonly referred to as “ones” or “unos.” They share many similarities with RA2 (A blood type, see below). They can vocalize moans and do so when they see prey. They react vaguely to smell and hearing to the degree that they will turn their heads. While they do not associate, say music with humans and meat, they are naturally drawn to sounds. They DO react to site. It is suspected that RA1 and RA2 have a slight form of heat vision. One study in Germany showed them react to heat signatures of human silouttes at up to 8 feet. This study was not fully researched prior to its…untimely closing. These RAs are not smart, as mentioned, and can hardly negotiate up/down stairs (which usually constitutes them falling down stairs. To move up, they either crawl or a mass of bodies stacks and actually allows the zombies in the back to crawl up the mass).
(A blood type, approx 41% of Americans): this type is very similar to RA1 but a little smarter. They move a little bit faster and are drawn to things a lot more quickly than Ones. They also react to one another more distinctly than Ones. Field studies have shown that a mass of Ones and Twos moving together will walk without much purpose or direction. But if one of the Twos see prey or meat, they will break off and all of the other Twos (within 5 or so feet) seem to gravitate together while the mass of Ones continue on. This happens even when the other RA2s are out of sight, smell and hearing, and scientists have no theories to the manner of communication that takes place that allows this.
(B blood type, approx 11% of Americans): RA3s are commonly referred to as Threes, joggers or Q1s (quick ones). These are a bit smarter than Ones and Twos and also a lot more aggressive and quick. Most studies found that Threes had a tendency to band together with more of a pack nature. In fact, they have been known to occasionally feed on Ones and Twos. They have been known to easily climb stairs and even climb over low walls. Similar to the Twos, they seem to be able to react as a group to one individual, and they have been documented to do so at distances of up to 15 feet. On rare occasion, this type has been known to stop and feed on non-Three infected.
(AB blood type, approx 5% of Americans): Fours are the scariest of the infected individually. They are called horsemen (a connection to the Four Horsemen), clickers (when excited, they have a tendancy to clack or chatter their teeth) and breathers (they always breath loud and deep and almost sound like they are wheezing or choking). They are fast and have an animalistic intelligence, having been known to follow prey for periods of time and waiting for individuals to become isolated. Unique to all other forms of RAs is that this type will kill anything, including other infected openly and aggressively. They do not kill one another however and groups of up to 3 have been sighted. Also unique to this class is that any creature bitten but NOT KILLED will become an RA4. However, if a human is bitten and dies, it will reanimate according to blood class.
RP EXPECATIONS AND INFO:
>This RP is NOT about killing swarms and hordes of zombies. This RP is about characters. It's about them their lives, how they change and adapt and how they influence each other. If you wanna join an RP about killing masses of zombies, look elsewhere.
>I may come off as a dick or jerk. I am. It's my storyline. It's not yours. My intent is to keep this running, NOT to coddle you or make you feel good or beg you to RP.
>If you are fickle, if you get bored after a day, week or month or whenever, or if you have the habit of leaving RPs, do not waste my time. Please. Go somewhere else.
>I will kill your character. Not just because. Leave, become inactive or whatever, I'm killing your character. It will be awesome.
>I do not require X amounts of posts per day/week or whatever. I ask that you be active and BE UNDERSTANDING. And I will do the same. I understand people have school, kids, jobs and hobbies and lives and other shit. If you are leaving for a bit (NOT just not wanting to post) then let me know. We’ll move the story along without you. Not in a negative way. Just let everything else and your char will be used in more of an NPC role for the duration of your absence.
>I WILL MODE/FORCE ACTIONS. I expect you to also. With that said, again I say this, be understanding. If my character and yours are walking around and you’re falls in a ditch, I may shoot my hand out and SAY you grab mine, then even have a dialogue. As long as it’s not making MAJOR decisions for your character, then we need to work together. Hand in hand with that, if I DO post and your character says or does something that has your head spinning, RESPECTFULLY mention it. And I expect people to work together.
The reason for this is that if your characters are engaging in a conversation, it could last 18 posts, with lots of “thinking” and “adjusting” and “coughing” in between the one or two sentences shared between characters. I’m trying to avoid the story becoming stagnant.
