PLANNING THREAD
Immune
Apocalypse RolePlay

Character applications NOW OPEN!


Intro
Welcome to the planning thread of Immune! This is a zombie apocalypse RP that ANYONE is welcome to join at ANY time! Just post read through this whole post first, then post here and we'll help you become one of the survivors! :D Here in this thread we will accomplish a few different things:
  • Out-of-character discussion
  • Character applications at any time
  • Keep track of past, present, and future-planned characters and NPCs
  • Keep the rules
So I'll go ahead and jump right in.


General Stuff to Know
1. Zombies. The zombies are mindless creatures that have a TINY bit of their past humanity in them, but only a tiny bit, and that bit will be left up to the writer as to how they will write it in

2. The disease. The disease is aerial and thus everyone is infected. You die, you turn. The disease lays dormant in your body until activated. It can be activated over a couple of hours by death OR slowly activated by a bite from a zombie or a bad scratch, etc. If the disease is activated by one of these injuries the character gets a fever and eventually overheats and dies, then turning.

3. Humanity. 99% of humanity is dead or turned.

4. Dates. RP starts mid May in 2014.


Story Summary/Log
Here's a generalized summary of what has happened in the RP from the very beginning all the way up to the present, as we as what's planned.
  • Two employees on a cruise ship discover the first infected they've witnessed.
  • Craziness outbreaks on the ship.
  • Ship lands at amusement park to find it desolated with a new life form inhabiting it...
  • Group of amusement park survivors join up with cruise ship survivors.

Characters
LIST OF CHARACTERS
Character                   Status    Player             Details
Calvin SteelmanActiveGlitch{LINK}
Evelyn "Evie" WatersActivequidditchchick{LINK}
Scotty KimbrikActiveFenix{LINK}
Holly KimbrikActiveFenix{LINK}

If you want to join in, submit an application and wait for approval (should be soon); there shouldn't be any denials, it's mainly for others to understand your character. Before you apply, here's the difference between the two character applications:

Playable Character: This is just a standard, regular, playable character that you have full control over and will be a main character in the story.

Limited-Playability Character: Basically, an NPC. A stock character that is created by a writer as a plot device. The creator has control over his or her NPC. Not all NPCs need applications either; only the more major ones that need specific information noted here in the thread.

PLAYABLE CHARACTER APPLICATION
Code: [Select]
[right][font=arial black][b][color=red]CHARACTER APPLICATION[/color][/b][/font][/right]

[hr]
[b]Character Identity[/b]
[u]Full name[/u]: (Name here.)
[u]Gender[/u]: (Gender here.)
[u]Age[/u]: (Age here.)
[u]Appearance[/u]: (Get as detailed as you would like.)

[hr]
[b]Character Personality[/b]
[u]Personality[/u]: (Write what your person's like, how he reacts to certain situations, what pushes his buttons, etc.)
[u]Strengths[/u]: (Character strengths and what your character excels at.)
[u]Weaknesses[/u]: (What is your character prone to?)

[hr]
[b]Back Story[/b]
(Here, write your character's backstory/past/history in as much detail as you would prefer.
You may also choose to reveal limited information here and reveal more gradually through as you play.)

LIMITED PLAYABILITY CHARACTER (NPC) APPLICATION
Code: [Select]
[right][font=arial black][b][color=red]LIMITED PLAYABILITY CHARACTER (NPC) APPLICATION[/color][/b][/font][/right]

[hr]
[b]Character Identity[/b]
[u]Name[/u]: (Name here.)
[u]Gender[/u]: (Gender here.)
[u]Age[/u]: (Age here.)
[u]Appearance[/u]: (Get as detailed as you would like.)
[u]Purpose[/u]: (Purpose of the NPC here.)
CHARACTER LOG TO DATE
List of Current Characters:
  • Coming soon
List of Past Characters:
  • Coming soon
List of NPCs:
  • Coming soon


Rules
Standard roleplaying rules apply here. Don't control people excessively without their permission. But when someone does something small with your character don't get all butthurt over it. Also keep it within main board regulation until we can get it moved over to the mature board if necessary.

Two playable characters per person max. No limit on NPCs but we may change that later.

Enjoy~

I am so excited! :3

I don't really like the idea of starting before the outbreak though. Just seems weird to me and us all coming magically together right away is kinda unrealistic.

Also, Alpha brought this up to me, I'll post since he is unable to atm.

If we were to start it before the outbreak, we should all be together in one place like a tourist attraction or amusement park or something like that. We obviously probably won't all know each other, but the situation could bring us together.

^this

Personally, I think it'd be more effective if we start midst the beginnings of the outbreak (perhaps all of the characters are at common place and help each other escape, like a neighborhood) or a post-outbreak (where all the groups have been established). I think the former would be interesting.

Omg I love that idea ten times more. Ugh, that leads to so many epic possibilities. But that would be sad too, with all the children at the amusement park and whatnot. But it would make for an interesting setting.

can my person be stuck on the ferris wheel or

kinda reminds me zombieland omg

I wonder if the NPCs are going to be the characters that act as plot devices to the main. Like mothers and children and such. And I wonder if we can eventually give an NPC a larger role if we so choose to later on. i know it's too soon to be thinking about this stuff, but then again kladjalk so excited

Honestly I'm in the camp that would rather have a post-outbreak, mostly because I sorta already built my characters with that thought in mind.

And I know how you feel, I'm already talking character ideas with Alpha on the phone!

The post-outbreak thing might actually be more effective, but we would all need to establish groups prior. Which I'm sure we're capable of. I just really like the idea of RPing what happened to our characters, or perhaps we could save that for a backstory thread? Hmm...

And post-outbreak stuff would be great for character development....

i know i kinda already know what kind of characters i want, or at least, i'm forming an idea of what happened to them

I'm going to be pretty busy tomorrow so I won't be on much tomorrow to work this out with you guys. But rest assured, I will try to get on a least a little and I'll post some ideas.

I like that idea too, character development is always good. :3

Haha, sweet. I wanna be the girl with the plans, and she's gonna be like a scientist/analyst or something x3

But *cough* yes, setting is more important right now.

I think I'm going to go with twins, a boy and a girl. After experiencing the outbreak for awhile she's had to grow up a bit and become untrusting to anyone other than her brother. And her brother is a genius with a fascination for the zombies, but is really immature and often gets him and his sister into serious trouble.

sdfjghsdjklfghklsdfghdskfj I love the idea of an amusement park! How about we plan on that and if someone doesn't like it they can join in the RP as not part of the group and write in how they come to join up later... or.... something... Idk lol.

And good heavens there are a lot of strikethroughs in this thread! D: LOL

It could be Disney World. Or Universal Studios. If it's Disney World, you can guarantee they have several levels underground with a bunker and stockpiles of food. I can easily imagine being inside Disney Quest while the Apocolypse goes on outside and being completely oblivious.

And the heat makes the zombies' rotting flesh revolting! :D

That'd be so cool! :D

But I haven't been to Disney World, so I don't really know anything about it. >>

I propose it should just be a generic amusement park. XD
