I have had a zombie survival RPG written for quite a while which I would love to have run but Just never got around to.

So I was wondering If there would be any interest in a zombie survival RPG which would be pretty realistic (well... as far as zombies can be!)

Right.. now that there is a bit of interest showing... the setting would probobly be in England, Ideally the city of Bristol and all the characters would be.... a wide range of wargamers attending some communual wargames convention or tournement.... (or pub afterwards.. it doesnt really matter) All players would be asked to play themselves....

Now this idea may not work as I hear shouts of "I really do carry a shotgun and 500shells where ever I go" or "really I am trained in every single form of kung-fu"

As for posting, I would ideally like for every single player to post once per post of mine so we could have a nice spread of whats going on and really get the feel of a group....

The name of the game would be team work and problem solving.... oh and smashing zombies heads in with your new steel figure case... + concealed shotgun!

Well... I would ideally like about 4-6 players... could cope with less could cope with more!

Also semi regular posters as I would hope for everyone to be able to at least once every two days?

Oh ok. I'll give it a look over.

Edit: Well to let you know, I have 3 belts in karate and one grade in kickboxing. I'm a fat midget, mildly strong. And i collect dark elves. Always carry my suppository shaped MP3 player.
I always dress in black. Wear a trenchcoat (black leather ofcourse :D). I own 0 weaponry but do own many heavy books (thank you DnD!).
Oh and if you know the rules for 3rd edition DnD you will know what i mean when my close friends understand that i am proficient with chairs and straws :evilgrin:. Ask The Pestilent 1. He has a scare on his hand from one of my straws.
So who cares about shotguns, all i need is a couple of chairs ;).

If everyone would be able to write a bio like the one above!

Dont forget to include what army you would have and how you are transporting it?

Just so I can get a look at official numbers of people.... Then hopefully we can begin!

Right I have worked out an ending for the zombie story which you might be able to find.

Yeah, if there's still interest, I'm gonna make that one character in every horror movie that doesn't die: the cute little kid.

Cpt. Drill
12-07-2006, 23:39
Well... with renewed interest I would love to run this rpg rather than let it die in one of my millions of notebooks...

SO if we can have a role call to see who actauuly is going to play that would be really nice!

13-07-2006, 02:08
Me. I'll still play if people show up.

13-07-2006, 22:24
Just to let you know, I'm still up for this.

Cpt. Drill
13-07-2006, 23:18
Well thats 5... If everyone wants to play then I can will happily start this up...

Tommorow I will post a set of rules and then we can work things out from there!

Cpt. Drill
16-07-2006, 00:30

The planning is pretty much complete.

Now I would like some input from you guys on this subject I am thinking if each of you are able to post once a day or every other day (your choice on how fast you want this thing to go) and I shall post whats happened from your actions and what happens next!

Also Ideally I would like for you to say things like "I swing my landraider at the zombies head" instead of "I swing my landraider at the zombies head hitting it causing it to explode and destroying the zombie threat! HUZZAH"

so you have to say what you are attempting and then I will say what happens!

Also feel free to roam... my play is pretty comprehensive and can adapt to almost anything!

Finally I want you all to play in character eg: yourself (now this was planned for me to play with a group of friends that I knew so I could judge how they acted) So I seeing as nnone of you have stated any super crime fighting ability I think I can judge that none of you are going to run headlong into a group of enemys and you all seem like a compassionate lot so you might all care about saving each other (but I could be wrong!)

Now finally a very prominant subject PLOTTING feel free to do this as much as you like just PM me anything that you want to do secretly or anything that you and a fellow survivor have discussed!

One other thing... what would you prefer to use? Real names eg: I am actually called Tom Clark or Cpt. Drill?

Well The main post will go up and we can begin!

Please add any comment to if you think some things need changing...
