In Character Info:
The world has gone dark. In early April of 2013, an infection of unknown origins began to sweep far and wide across the globe. Soon, humanity learned that all who died not only rose again, but fed upon the warm flesh of their fellow man. The only to stop these beasts from the nightmares of the darkest people, was to destroy their physical brain, and burn the bodies for good measure.
Months past, the death rate climbing and climbing to a staggering 90% within the first eight months. Small groups, almost tribal in nature, tried desperately to survive in this new world, even hard still they tried to keep a grasp to the society we once held so dear. Some, however, believed it was already too late for mankind. Deterioration in social structure proceeded to exponentially squash out most of the groups of survivals as previously unforgiveable crimes (i.e. rape, murder, thievery, etc.) became common place on the roads.
As the first year post-infection drew to a close, most soon discovered that “all who die, turn”. Common knowledge was that any person that died, whether by illness or the gunshot, would promptly rise to their feet with an unquenchable hunger. The walkers began to form into large herds, stragglers wandering aimlessly in the new world. Survivors were forced to batten down their belongings, stake claims on territory, and try to rebuild as a bitter winter drew in on them in the year of 2014. The turning of the New Year has seen two new city-states rising in the ruins of Boston. A frequently asked question is: will both survive the year? In this new world, there is one rule to live by… Fight the dead, and fear the living.
Out of Character Info:
Right, so, simply put there are two groups of survivors hunkered down in the greater metropolitan area of Boston and the surrounding countryside. The first of which is the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Cedar Junction located roughly 46km from the Boston City Center. Of the cell blocks in the prison, roughly three have been completely cleared out. There are close to nineteen survivors held up inside the secure prison with an array of weapons, a small supply of ammunition, four vehicles, and a prison bus. Their food supply is rough, though they attempt to grow food on the property and hunt for what they can.
Across the way, roughly 8km from the prison, sits the great castle of the ruins. Foxboro’s landmark, Patriot Place, along Route 1, has grown into a haven for survivors with its own paramilitary, roughly ninety people, a steady supply of vegetables and livestock, fresh water, and multiple vehicles. The true palace in the bleak world we live in, the former home of the New England Patriots is now a home for most of what remains of Bostonians.
The New Year has just passed and the winter is brutally cold this year. What will happen? Nobody can tell. So make a CS and let’s see who we get!
