This RP takes place during modern times and starts out in a typical US urban city. Things start out nice and calm, until some people start coming out of the hospital and attack anyone nearby, biting at them. Turns out, there was a body brought there infected with the Solanum virus, which reanimates the dead and turns them into zombies. My character, Zack Richards, had prepared for something like this, however, owning a book called The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead. He will try to help who he can, and get them out of the city and somewhere safe as the virus spreads from zombie to victim. Everyone will be assigned tasks based on their skills and everyone must work together if they are all to survive.
No killing other characters or god modding.
This is a realistic RP, so no powers or abnormal characters.
Keep track of your ammo, as it will run out.
If you get bitten, you will die within 20 hours and be reanimated 3 hours later.
Nobody is a perfect shot, so you will miss sometimes, and you will get tired.
You can only carry so much on you, and you can only have what you carry.
If we run low on supplies, we can send a small party to scout any nearby towns, but must be careful and never leave anyone alone.
No ridiculous weapons, like rocket launchers. They must be stuff that you can get normally and legally.
Will add any more rules that I can think of.
Symptoms of the Solanum Virus
Hour 1: Pain and discoloration (brown-purple) of the infected area. Immediate clotting of the wound (provided infection came from a wound).
Hour 5: Fever (99-103 degrees F), chills, slight dementia, vomiting, acute pain in the joints.
Hour 8: Numbing of extremities and infected area, increased fever (103-106 degrees F), increased dementia, loss of muscular coordination.
Hour 11: Paralysis in the lower body, overall numbness, slowed heart rate.
Hour 16: Coma.
Hour 20: Heart Stoppage. Zero brain activity.
Hour 23: Reanimation.
Equipment (including weapons and ammo):
I will add my character tomorrow. Also, spot of leader is reserved for my character, since he knows as much as there is to know about the virus and the zombies.
