Plight of the Soul: Ruins of Albion [OOC]

Introduction:

Back in 2013 I hosted a roleplay that was a semi serious attempt at going through an idea like this, but it died out after several pages worth of work.

I decided planning a comeback over the years to make this roleplay fit into a new pattern. You, and others will boarding on Transatlantic airlines flight #947 on your way from the shining metropolis of New Manhattan the sleek city of the future built over the corpses of six million people who died in a nuclear holocaust in 1978 (in what was once New York). Your planned destination is Oslo, Norway, but things are tense over in Europe with the U.S angered at the utterly genocidal treatment the Britons, and their own citizens received when fleeing Great Britain.

The Soviets had citizens in Great Britain too, and things are about to go over the tipping point. Your flight will be the cause shot out of the sky by warmongering federation forces trying to maintain the quarantine. One billion died in 1978 from a false alarm, and billions more are at stake. The U.S, and the Soviet Union prepare are prepared to take on the worlds 3rd superpower.

For you though it probably won't matter as you will wake up, and struggle for your very survival in the ruins of Albion.

Collapse of Great Britain:

1998s projection for flu outbreaks in december are way off, but the plague spread incredibly fast. There will be no recovery only struggle for control over the isles.

Letter to those who may hopefully find this in the future

Walking death, wind of death, black flu, wasting fever, or simply the pestilence.

These are all the names to describe the plague which tore Great Britain apart in a month.

The first big report came out of Norwich after a bio-terrorist group released something into the air at one of the big malls set up by Holder Industries. The police tried to help contain the victims, but carnage spread throughout the mall forcing the health authority to order a barricade around the place. It didn't work, and while authorities were busy clearing out the mall, and looking for survivors the first cases of infection in the city began to appear.

To many it probably seemed like a cold or flu so they would go to the hospital, and infect the staff there. The staff would go on to infect their family, friends, loved ones, and other acquaintances. Soon all sorts of public places became infected hotspots in under a few days. Those who didn't die began to transform into something else. Its as if the virus inflicted a coma on the body, and when the person came out they weren't the same.

They were still living, breathing, eating human beings, but their mind, and one could even say their soul had been taken over to serve a purpose. The attacks were sporadic at first, but soon got out of control. The military were called in, and cordoned the whole damn place off doing nothing while thousands died or turned. They probably thought if the infection burned out they could come in, and cleaned up. While they were busy playing the waiting game the remaining bioterrorists who had slipped out earlier began to spread the infection in certain areas.

No target was too sacred for them. Churches, synagogues, hospitals, and monuments to history were all open targets. While the military was busy with Norwich the terrorists still around began to die or turn from the infection. The police managed to catch or kill most of them, but those infected slipped by. The first patient outside Norwich was someone who had been in the city, got infected at a restaurant from tainted food, and then took a trip back to their home in Bath, Somerset.

They infected god knows how many people along the way who would go on to infect even more. Once these time bombs went off the police began to notice, and under orders of the Ministry of Health set up quarantine zones. This was after a blood bath occurred in one of the local hospitals. The police in their combat, and hazmat suits patrolling these fenced areas waiting for doctors to come, and assess the infected was ineffective.

The media despite censoring began to leak reports of what we now call the Remembrance Day Plague since it first began on Dec 6th. They day we mourn the one billion who died in the nuclear war which happened primarily because of a false alarm from the Soviets. They dropped hydrogen bombs on what was once New York in 1978 triggering a limited scale nuclear war via a lottery system. Why am I telling you this?

Because if this plague gets out of the country there will be no need for any more Remembrance Days, shiny cars, robotic servants, neat automated houses, and other trivial things the Americans espouse as a right. People tend to forget that we were once under the occupation of a brutal soviet styled government since the revolution in 1948. Our experiment with American styled capitalism, and European Federation aggression has only been in place since 1990.

Reports of missing pets, children, and eventually adults began to pile up around communal message boards. Hospitals began to inspect for the plague, and had police escort them to large camps where they would ultimately die or be executed humanely. No one knows how many people who actually survived the plague were still executed, but the figure is astounding. It is estimated that one camp while putting bodies in the crematoriums didn't notice someone waking up from the infection. Their screams haunted the workers till the point they committed mass suicide.

While other neighborhoods were boarding up, and getting supplies as the police disintegrated others were committing mass suicide. A caravan of ambulances was needed to drag the bodies out of a church. Someone had poisoned the wine, and they drank it all unknowingly given how they died. Others used guns, ropes, pills, and other blunt objects while many began to jump off buildings. The military as they gained control began to burn any bodies on site reserving mass graves for other purposes.

The city of Stockton a former market town turned industrial hub thanks to government collectivization efforts managed to somehow prevent their entire city from being infected. They practically walled it off from the world, and began an extreme rationing program. The military couldn't get anywhere near the place when evacuation orders came. Corporations such as Proseiden, Holder Industries, and Alderman the famous pharmaceutical company began hiring Black Crest securities to guard their assets.

The Delmar family out of their lavish Eastgate estates in Brighton out seized control of the remaining assets of the local government in East Sussex. Some grizzled war vet down in Sheffield (a village within the former Bracknell forest) began gathering a mob to enforce their own brand of justice as the police started to collapse in Berkshire. Apparently the area was full of people who lost a lot of family during the Irish war of independence (1960s), and understandably were pissed.

The name for the infected themselves became turned since by all means, but these weren't stupid shambling zombies as some conspiracy theorists from the states thought. No these were people under the control of something else their very body was changing, but the turned seemed relatively smart they began to travel in packs, but they weren't invincible. They had to eat, sleep, and do other bodily functions, but they didn't just eat meat people observed them raiding the abandoned grocery stores to eat food.

I think once the plague began to infiltrate London that the government panicked. The military had to make tough choices in who to evacuate, and they chose the healthy. Cancer patients, diabetics, the mentally ill, the mentally retarded, and those with other conditions such as physical disabilities were either executed or left in the relocation camps to their own fate. Most of them died either by bullets or horrible deaths. Then all the people on life support, those who needed surgery, and those who got a strange bacterial infection (linked to the plague) were all euthanized.

When the chancellor gave that address it caused people to freak out thus delaying the evacuation. Riots broke out across Scotland which hadn't suffered as much from the plague, but the strain caused the collapse of any intact emergency services. The air force began deploying fire bombs on the cities which were out of control, and those which were deemed unworthy to save. Edinburgh got the worst of it with 100,000 dead as a result. The fires raged for days thus causing the military save for several defectors to abandon Scotland completely.

Eventually the power grid collapsed for much of the country while the military guarded the designated ports of evacuation along the motorways. In order to prevent people from fleeing by cars they used buses to transport those selected to be evacuated. The hordes began to overrun the motorways making it impossible to move. The latest estimates before communications collapsed is that ten percent of the estimated evacuees made it their destinations.

The navy tried as hard as it could, but couldn't evacuate in time as the hordes flooded into the evacuation cities. The military used artillery, and bombs to hold back the hordes causing much of the areas to be destroyed or on fire. Not everyone got out groups got lost or killed in the confusion. The fires raged like Scotland, but calmed down the situation in London was worse. Cut off from the rest of the military the remnants in London decided to consolidate their efforts in the militarized Isle of Dogs. During the 1980s the Isle of Dogs had been rebuilt since London was incinerated in atomic fire originally, and was used as a military area.

Neighbors fought over canned goods while gangs ran amok in the streets. Anyone who had a boat left long after the evacuation order was issued the city was a blood bath. Shops closed down as bodies were strewn across public parks, churches, hotels, cars, restaurants, and even the airports. Anyone on the Isle of Dogs was lucky, but eventually the Ministry of Health would be the next target.

The military here had managed to hold them back for a while, but the shots have stopped instead only screaming remains as the infected break through the barriers. I must end the letter here for it isn't safe any longer, but the people here won't suffer for long the security system will let out a toxic gas in a few minutes killing everything in this building.

The Remembrance Day Plague

It seemed like an ordinary cold, and flu season, but something else swept up the country. The plague spread mostly by air, water, food, and contact, but rarely by biting since that is an incredibly inefficient means of spreading a pathogen. The plague is very much alive, and people on a smaller scale are getting infected in waves. Those known as the turned have not died out since they seem to be intelligent enough to find shelter, and food.

While you know a bioterrorist group was the one who unleashed the plague no one is really sure who actually made it for them or why. You may just find out while scouring the ruins of Albion.

Expectations


1) This is a hardcore survival horror role play taking place another week following the fall of a liberalizing Peoples Republic of Great Britain (January 12th).

2) There will be harsh descriptions of how the society collapsed, and how the factions arose in result of this.

3) This is Britain, and an incredibly alternate history one at that so don't expect to find an overload of guns here.

4) I expect people to understand the reality of surviving during the winter in a collapsed nation.

5) This is not a zombie roleplay please read the letter before making that assumption.

6) I will lay out the lore so please wait on that, and if you have any questions please do ask.

7) Please talk to me before doing an epidemic survivor application. We need a few things to work out that would be essential to plot.

8 ) This roleplay will take us all over a radically different Britain, and the remnants of society are picking up the pieces. Be wary of any factions.

Interested! What's the difference between a crash survivor and an epidemic survivor?

Epidemic survivors lived through the descent of madness that was the collapse of Great Britain.

Now they either struggle to survive or happen to be in one of the more stable leftover communities.

Plane crash survivors are just normal people who have heard little to nothing about the epidemic save for the fact its very bad. The shell shock they will get actually seeing the truth may shatter their psyche if they have family in Britain.

Corporations, and their assets may need a third application since the mega corporations of the world hired a huge mercenary army safeguard their workers, and properties.

Not to mention they are testing all kinds of things out, and getting away with it since there is no unified government to be wary of.

Nation name: Great Confederacy of Commonwealth States – James Usari
Character Name: Captain Josef Alexanderson Benedict
Life before the epidemic?: Before the epidemic, Josef was nothing more than a pen pusher. He was raised by a hardline communist family, all members of the British Communist Party and the Internationale. As members of the party elite, Josef’s parents had a lot of resources to put into his education. Josef studied history and Socialist Literature, and after graduation joined the administrative core of the Communist Party. For his loyalties, he was made a political officer after a few years of service. His tendency to rat our colleagues made him ideally suited for this position. He became a workhorse for the ministry, especially during armed evictions and certain arrests. Although not a brave man, when backed up by enough rifles to drop a bear colony he somehow found his guts. This was his position before the epidemic hit.
Life during the epidemic?: After the epidemic came to Britain, Josef was one of the people to was in favour of quarantined zones. He took active part in disease control from the day it was recognised as a dangerous pathogen. He assembled a commission, with approval from London, to come up with a few contingency plans in case the disease spread. The Benedict Commission, as it was called, came up with far more than just contingency plans. The commission created enough paperwork to kill a horse, with plans and backup plans for every situation in neatly numbered protocols. Protocol 227, for instance, was the fire-bombing of suspected infected cities in anarchy. Protocol 12 called for evacuation of British citizens from the island, and protocol 333… Well, let’s just say Josef was most involved with that protocol.

Protocol 333 was the Mass Containment Protocol, or MCP. When put into motion, it basically gave the political office of the Ministry of Defence power over a few divisions of specially trained soldiers, experts in biological warfare and disease control. It called for the construction of special camps, where diseased persons (both epidemic and otherwise) would be contained for as long as possible while the healthy were being rescued. This plan was called into motion when all other hopes had failed, and Josef took it up with a vigour not yet seen of him by his colleagues. He himself took personal responsibility for one particular camp, which was responsible for quarantining the diseased London population. Camps were also constructed near Treharris, Otley and Blackridge, with special holding camps created at important railway junctions. It was an extremely sober and thought-out operation, no different from preparing any other event.

Soon, the camps were put into action. From all over the nation, people began to pour into the hundreds of hastily constructed barracks. They were supplied with food and water, as well as some basic leftover medical supplies. Most of those, however, were saved for the army and those that were healthy. The sick were herded in like cattle, closely watched by machinegun teams and riflemen, with rifles powerful enough to shoot through quite a number of people. Not only were the sick put into these camps, but also dissidents who disapproved of the plans. With Josef basically having police powers throughout London, no-one was safe from being marched into the horrible camps of isolation.

When Protocol 227 was unleashed on Edinburgh, the priorities of the Benedict Commission began to shift. Overnight, it seemed that no longer was the army besieging the virus, it was itself being besieged. With the Edinburgh Incidents, which was actually more a rule than an incident, the tactics of the commission changed. They engaged Protocol 2, the Last Resort. Not that aptly named, as protocol 1 was actually the last resort. With protocol 2, the army started forcibly emptying the camps, preparing to turn them from containment fields to protective bubbles. With flame throwers and machine guns, the area was made clean. First, the gates were opened, allowing the diseased that could still walk to exit in a blind panic. Those that stayed behind were shot or burned, their bodies shoved into the industrial ovens built for that purpose. Many soldiers were armed with hazmat suits and special masks, making the last sight of many of these people the alien-like soldiers who came to take their life. Most of the old were executed in this way, together with many shell-shocked adults. Within days, the camp was turned into a fortification. Artillery was set up, as were machine gun dugouts and mortars. Trenches were dug, and it looked like this base was preparing itself for war. The soldiers dared not look at the ash-filled ovens, even when looking for possible rations and defensive positions. It was better not to think about it.

Camp Weston was under siege for the better part of three weeks. Every second day or so, an attack of infected was successfully repulsed, with every attack becoming more violent and more aggressive. The 200 men defending the perimeter slowly dwindled, as the camp was not meant to keep people out. It was meant to keep people in. When the power outages began, and the electric fence no longer proved an obstacle. The base was overrun, and only Josef with twenty of his remaining men could flee the compound. They ran to the east, hoping to get to Portsmouth before the evacuations were finished.
Life after the epidemic?: Trying to survive. Britain seems in total anarchy, without any form of government control. Food is hard to come by, and no-one can be trusted to make a proper judgement. The world is dangerous, and there are no safe spots. The only thing keeping these men from losing their lives are their training and their weapons, and their munitions is running dangerously low. Another attack from the infected, and they would not last through the night…

Just curious as to where you officially are now?

Considering your survivors location will play a role in the IC.

Would a former police officer turned into a leader of a gang be acceptable ?

Don't see why not.

The isles are a harsh place to live now, and people from all stripes will come together just to survive.

Tom Mayer

Postby Benuty » Wed Jun 08, 2016 10:21 pm

1) Nation name: I am the OP obviously.

2) Character Name: Tom Mayers

3) Life before the epidemic? Born in 1944 back when Britain still had a monarchy, and was fighting for its survival due to the German deployment of chemical weapons on its major cities things have certainly changed. In 1947 when the U.S finally defeated Japan in Operation Downfall the government of Clement Attlee was struggling to hold the United Kingdom together. Daily riots, the famine due to the collapse of much of the rationing system, and the hundreds of thousands dead from German spy cells detonating chemical weapons proved too much.

The military fired on factory workers striking due to the payment cuts, and it sparked something in the people. Riots by the populace broke out, and spread like wildfire. By the years end armed groups of militias roamed the streets fighting the military. In 1948 the formation of the revolutionary army of the British people occurred, and with aid from the Soviet Union they overtook London, and forced a surrender.

Some time before that the Royal family had fled to Canada, and the remnants of the government brokered a peace treaty in desperation. Those who wanted to leave left in droves. The British troops in Europe left, and with the suicide of Harry Truman after the deaths of one million american troops due to his steadfast refusal to drop the bombs on several cities left the French, and Soviets in charge of Germany.

Thing is Harry Truman had used the bomb, but on Berlin in 1946 instead horrifying the European states of its raw power thus the outrage forced the U.S to leave. The death of Truman, and the one million others left the U.S cautiously avoiding Europe instead they chose to focus inward toward the Americas, and Asia.

The Soviets left the French to carve up Northern Germany into several states thus erasing Germany from existing while they held on to the south, and formed the Bavarian Socialist Republic. The new Peoples Chancellor used the returning troops to keep order, and welcomed the Soviets into the isles. This kept Scotland, and Wales from seceding, but Ireland on the other hand proved contentious.

The British overthrew the republican government which had been in negotiations with a seceded Northern Ireland, and forced them into this new "union of the people". A group known as the Republican unity party under Éamon de Valera began to plant themselves in cells, and plan for a large scale rebellion in the 1950s. By the 1950s the British Peoples Army was failing to keep things in check, and in 1959 open rebellion occurred. Officially the Irish war of Independence began in 1960, and with this the British faced their first major challenge.

In 1964 Tom enlisted to fight the Irish who were beginning to turn the tide against Britain. He stayed there until 1968 leaving honorably discharged as a Lance corporal due to an injury he sustained fighting in the battle of Belfast. There he met Lorna who would become his wife in a demonstration by the reform league led by a strange fellow called John Lennon who wanted the government to reform, end the war, and let people vote.

Well two things did happened the U.S, and the French led European Federation forced the British to the peace table in 1969, and allowing all of Ireland to become independent. Humiliated the British turned inward reforming their government during a time known as London Spring, and many restrictions were eased.

The Soviets were having none of this, and led a crackdown on the government. The Soviet Navy was there in weeks offloading tens of thousands of Munich Pact troops onto the island. A hardliner government was formed, and the country forced to join the Munich Pact. The reform league was crushed, and its key members executed in public.

This new government went into effect immediately, and started to push for collectivization, and other policies. Tom, and his new wife were relocated to the recently bulldozed Bracknell forest in Berkshire as part of a collective farm effort. It was in 1978 when Lorna gave birth to their first children Nathaniel, and Karen, but the nuclear incident in New York, and the detonation of a hydrogen bomb in London changed the mood quickly.

The Soviets had goofed badly as their system detected an all out assault by the U.S thus they began launching all the bombers, but at last minute recalled all, but one. This bomber dropped five hydrogen bombs on New York, and killed over six million people in a fiery instant.

That December, and the next years following were rough as the world dealt with the consequences of the nuclear lottery which killed over one billion people. Admittedly it didn't result in mutually assured destruction, but Moscow did pay since they were the first U.S target in revenge for New York. By 1984 the interim government had finally loosened the military's control over the country. The next chancellor who ruled until 1990 was mediocre at best.

Then something changed in 1990 Andrea Silver was appointed Chancellor, and using her ties to the United States normalized relations with them, pulled out of the Munich Pact, and under threat of war forced the Soviets to leave. With the U.S backing her the Soviets had no choice, but to leave. A former member of the reform league she began to make many changes liberalizing the regime slowly over the years. First it was small scale attempts at capitalism to allowing U.S corporations, and others to come in.

Feeding off the distrust of the soviets she built up the military, and began to allow voting locally. Rationing was ended as well since the government had other things to deal with such as normalizing relations with Ireland, and ending the hostile tension in the Irish sea. The collective farms were ended in 1996, and Tom was given a land lease to stay on the land he had lived on for years. The couple had another child Thomas some years back before the reforms.

4) Life during the epidemic? At first most ignored the reports coming out of Norwich saying the city was in chaos from an unknown pathogen, and rightly so. Yet the pathogen started to spread in public places, and the police began setting up quarantine zones it was then when people started to die in droves or become something else that people noticed. First it was pets, then children, and then adults who went missing or got the plague. Many died, but others turned, and were put down. The constables in Sheffield tried there best quarantining the homes of the sick, and marking them so people wouldn't go near them, but eventually the military came.

Once people started to realize how bad things were getting many committed suicide. Whole families chose to die of poison or some other method than die of the plague. Many were buried, and military rationing made things somewhat worse as medical supplies were being shipped to the most important areas. On ration day in the public square somehow the turned managed to appear without the hazmat wearing soldiers looking, and chaos ensued. Thomas was shot, but while the doctor saved him a strange black infection appeared, and he died within hours due to lacking the appropriate medicine to treat him.

The grieving family buried their boy, and began to plot. The police were already disintegrating, and the military presence in Sheffield were isolated presiding over the 2,500 people left in the village. The military there had dwindled with most defecting to see their families the remnants governed over the people liked dictators long having abandoned their mission. Tom, and several others brutally murdered the remaining personnel in their sleep hanging their bodies up high with signs depicting their crimes.

When the people woke up in the morning, and found out what Tom, and his mob of vigilantes had done they freaked out. Some thieved, and looted, and were hung up high as a result while others simply fled. By the end of this only 700 were left many walled up the downtown, and relocated there as the Judges group, and another prepared to go to war over ideals.

5) Life after the epidemic? With the country gone, and the military scattered across its remains the once life filled village of Sheffield is at war with itself over ideals with the Judge, and another person at the heels of this conflict. Whoever wins determines the future of the remains of Sheffield, but the rest is void as are there truly any winners in the ruins of Albion?

6) Age: 54

7) Description or Picture:

Image


8 ) Nationality: British

9) Mental status: Split into two personalities one the respectful veteran farmer in the English countryside who is polite, and reserved. The other the Judge a blunt, and emotional man with a grizzled voice bent on revenge against the government (now the military) for what they did to his people.

10) Race, and Ethnicity: White European-English

11) Sex: Male

12) Occupation before the epidemic? A land lease farmer for the state who was experimenting with seeds brought by the U.S based agricultural mega corporation known as Vista.

13) Occupation now? The Judge a fierce vigilante responsible for executing thieves, 30 military personnel, and countless rioters who posed a threat to his home, and his people in the village of Sheffield.

14) Roleplaying sample: I am the OP so probably not.

Obviously will be putting up the rest of the Mayers family, but also some others important to the plot.

I do hope not everyone does solely an epidemic survivor unless this roleplay becomes one sided.
