"No-one knows what caused it, but one day, the dead started walking. It came out of nowhere, like an earthquake, one that would change America, and maybe the world, forever. The bite of a Walker is worse than a death sentence, it's a guarentee that you'll become one of them, unless you put a bullet in your own head. Or let someone else do it for you. 
 
It's been two months now, and still no word from the outside. We were all in the mall when it hit. Thank God they locked the doors before the Walkers got inside. Course, just cause there were no Walkers didn't mean we were safe. A few of the guys on the inside got bitten. Didn't tell the rest of us until it was too late. About half of us got wiped out by those few victims, before we put them down... That's when we realized how delicate our situation was. A few bites is all it would take to wipe out all of us. We're past that now, locked up inside. No Walkers, no danger. We're safe. But still no word from the rest of the world. And with no-one allowed outside, we don't have any freedom. We're trapped in a cage, while the Walkers taunt us from the outside. It's too much for some people. I'm scared, truth be told. Not of the Walkers, not them... No, I'm scared of these total strangers I got myself locked up with. They look to me as their leader, and that's not a title I chose. It's human nature, to push responsibility onto the next guy. I'm that guy. And these poor suckers are expecting me to lead them to safety, to fix this mess and make it all better again. 
 
My name is Kingsley Kaine. I'm a survivor. But if things keep going the way they are, I won't be one for long."
 
(^Just a little excerpt from what we may expect^)  
 

Rules

 
1. This takes place in an alternate world. You can't use your canon Vine-universe characters. There are no superpowers in this world, you are a normal human being. 
2. All characters start in the mall, where they have been for 2 months, since the Walkers first appeared. If you want a different origin contact me.
3. The mall has pretty much everything you could want, within reason. That includes guns, but they are kept locked up to prevent riots. 
4. This world has limitations. Ammo is more precious than gold and a gunshot will bring Walkers like a magnet. Conserve your ammo and use your guns sparingly.   
5. Your character's look must be from some sort of zombie-related work of fiction. (This isn't a requirement, it's just for fun)
6. Remember: Death Is always an option 

Please fill out this form if you would like to join, to give everyone a better idea about who your character is:

Name:

Your character's full name. You're not a superhero, so a real name, please. 

Appearance:

Your character's official look.  

Family and Friends:

Any important people in your character's life you'd like to mention, whether they are fellow survivors, Walkers, or whatever.

Traits:

This only needs to be a few words to sum up your character. (eg. confrontational, easily angered, selfish) 

Public Facts:

Your character's life, as you have told it to your fellow survivors in the mall so far. You have been living with them for 2 months, after all. You may indicate when some of this information is only known to one particular survivor, but be aware they may not keep your secrets. Remember, this is only the things you have told the rest of us. You can keep most of your character's secrets to yourself and reveal them later.

Specialization:

Not everyone is a weapons expert, but you can offer other useful skills to the group. Your character could be a good cook, a Doctor, a great scavenger, anything you like. 
 
Please post your completed form here and in the PM (once it is set up), I may add some more sections. 
 
This is an open RPG normal rules apply! Anyone can join, though there are not many survivors and if it is decided that there are too many at the beginning you can join later. This will hopefully be an ongoing RPG. Yes this is a reboot and yes I copied the OOC off Eclipse.

@Obi Wan Kenobi!: The plan for the original one was for it to be a long-term, slow-paced RPG. It definitely was slow-paced, but the idea was if you got bored, you could just kill off your character, and return with a new one if you ever felt like coming back. Con and I will try to make sure this one survives (HA!) so hopefully it'll still be kicking whenever you get some free time :)

#10 Posted by Kingsley Kaine (30 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey, I found the list of the original crew! :P 
 
It was in a blog 
 
Name: Kingsley Clayton Kaine

Appearance:

 Will Smith (in I Am Legend) 

Family and Friends:

 Alison Kaine (Wife - Walker), Arthur Kaine (Son - Walker), Rosie Kaine (Baby Daughter)

Traits:

Stubborn. Hot-tempered. Confident. Though he would never admit it, King is a natural leader due to his obsessive need to be in charge. He has a soft, trusting side, but especially since the loss of most of his family, he puts up a wall to most people and trusts no-one.

Public Facts:

King hasn't said much to his fellow survivors. He hasn't discussed his past, all that is known is what happened to him during his time in the mall. He was on a shopping trip with the family, heading back to the car, when the Walkers appeared. Immediately realising what was going on, the Kaine family struggled to get back into the safety of the mall, just before it was locked down. But Artie became ill. It eventually became clear that Artie had been bitten, but the group were unaware what that meant, until Artie died and then came back. He bit his mother and, along with a few others, was responsible for wiping out most of the survivors in the mall. King himself had to put a bullet in the head of his son's walking corpse and, at her request, his still living wife. He feels that he is responsible for the loss of most of the group. Since then, Kingsley has naturally become leader of the group and mostly keeps to himself, caring for his daughter, who is less than a year old.

Specialisation:

Kingsley's only real skills are leadership. He's a pretty good shot with a gun, but he's not a weapons expert by any means. He leads through both intimidation and coercion.

Traits: Social but keeps to her self when it comes to her.  Extremly protective do to her losses.

#27 Edited by _Grifter_ (11084 posts) - - Show Bio
Name: Evan Creed 
Appearance: Leon Kennedy  
Family and Friends:  Brother Marcus Creed Deceased
Traits:  Indifferent, cautious, and level headed.
Public Traits:  Evan was a young street cop who grew up from poverty with only one real goal, take care of his baby brother. When the outbreak broke out he failed to keep his promise. His younger brother Marcus had been bitten, Evan stayed with little Marcus until he changed. He than placed his beretta to his little brother's temple and gently squeezed the trigger. With walkers closing in on him Evan only had one option, to run like hell. Eventually he stumbled upon the mall and it became his home for the next two months. He doesn't like discussing anything family oriented with the group and tends to keep his distance unless they need his assistance with any potential threats or runs into the city for supplies.
Specialization:  Scavenger/Security.
Knows the streets like the back of his hand, and due to him being a cop he's a decent shot with sidearms. Not afraid of getting into melee situations with walkers, but if it can be avoided he would rather avoid it.

#34 Posted by Switch (4527 posts) - - Show Bio

Name:

Jack Falkner

Appearance:

Liam Neeson

Family and Friends:

All deceased or up and walking as far as he knows.

Traits:

Calm, measured and introspective but not a loner. A bit of a dreamer.

Public Facts:

Drifter before the dead rose, making his way by doing odd jobs. Luckily he was inside the mall when it was locked down rather than being out in the car park. He adapted well to life in the mall as it wasn’t all that different from his life before. Now he has decided that he will tell stories in order to keep peoples spirits up and sees himself as the chronicler of what is happening. He has a revolver but it a terrible shot with it and only has one bullet left anyway, the rest having been used when the wounded turned in the first few days of imprisonment.

Specialization:

Storyteller, good with his hands.
 
Alright, there he is. Do I need to make a new profile or can I just post with this one?

#38 Posted by CellphoneGirl (18853 posts) - - Show Bio

Name:

Brooke

Appearance:

Effy from Skins

Family and Friends:

Katie and Evan friends that survived. They'll be with her at the mall.

Traits:

Brooke is very brilliant. One of the smartest in her class actually, however, she doesn't care for school. She knows she has the potential to become something great, but it's too late as the walkers appear. She has also taken multiple drugs in her time. She might seem quiet around others, but it's only so she won't get close to someone since everyone has a chance of dying.

Public Facts:

Your character's life, as you have told it to your fellow survivors in the mall so far. You have been living with them for 2 months, after all. You may indicate when some of this information is only known to one particular survivor, but be aware they may not keep your secrets. Remember, this is only the things you have told the rest of us. You can keep most of your character's secrets to yourself and reveal them later.

Specialization:

Brooke is really good with drugs. Whether they are illegal or legal she knows what they are and what they could do to the body.

Hey, is it cool if I join in on this? If so- 

Name: 

Daniel Baird

Appearance:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt   
         

Family and Friends:

He's unsure of their status, presumes most of them to be walkers or deceased.

Traits:

Self-confident, selfish, immature and bold, though he see's the positive side in the 'end of civilisation' as a chance for life on earth to continue uninhibited and without threat by destructive human errors. 

Public Facts:

Raised by his mentally ill mother, Daniel often had to care for her as he grew up and was raised in an environment where sex, drugs and alcohol were an everyday thing. He made infrequent appearances at the local public school, which was tolerated due to his high grades despite using numerous drugs from a young age. This sparked off something of a god complex as he began to discover he tended to be able to get whatever he wanted when he put his mind to things. Come the Walkers and Dan initially took the opportunity to loot his way across town with friends, however the gravity of the situation began to override his hedonistic tastes and he sought refuge in the mall before things got any worse.

Specialization:

Scavenger/Has taken first aid courses/Something of a horticulturalist
#40 Edited by Wallcroft (119 posts) - - Show Bio

Name:

Jacob Velasquez

Appearance:

Chris Redfield

Family and Friends:

Bloodstone (Partner and love interest)

Traits:

Jacob has army intelligence and is close to his friends and family, specifically with his partner Selene, whom he would willingly give his life to protect. He cares greatly for the life of innocents, something that caused him to argue with his superiors in the military.

Public Facts:

Jacob is a former Marine soldier who fought in various wars and was known as the soldier with nine lives due to how many times he had almost died but survived during the war but once the wars were over he came back home and became a police officer partnered with Selene.

Specialization:

Jacob has Police and Marine training which means he's good with any fighting skill and any weapon he can get his hands on and also a great pilot.

Just caught up with reading all the bios, nice stuff :) but CPG, you forgot to fill out your Public Facts section :P 
 
I'm okay with Wallcroft being a gun expert, since he has a connection to another player, but I think this is definitely the cut-off point for them. I'm also sick of seeing the word "scavenger" so that's off limits too. 
 

NO MORE GUN OR SCAVENGER SPECIALISATIONS, PLEASE!
