Quarantine - The Infection [OOC | OPEN]

IC









January 31st, 1945. Day Zero.

As the Allies were beginning to converge upon the German capital of Berlin, the Nazi Regime had one last weapon - a last-ditch effort in an attempt to save themselves. The Allies had come to discover that the Nazis were trying to play God with some of their experimentation camps, but at least one of their experiments bore fruit: the “Berlin Flu” - as some would call it. It has many names across the globe, but the Berlin Flu is one of the more popular ones.

The bioweapon worked too well. It wasn't exactly weaponized influenza, but in point of fact, it was much worse than anything humanity had been in contact with in a very long time. The infection started with necrotic and fungal growths that would begin appearing over injuries; these fungal growths would often look full of black fluid or something similar, and if they popped, would release spores through which the “Flu” could travel.

As time went on, the Infected individual would begin suffering what seemed to be dementia and disorientation. Eventually, the Infected individual would lose most higher thinking processes - becoming almost animalistic and cruel towards ones they once loved, or even towards life in general. However, they always did it with intent to spread the Flu - nothing more, nothing less. And while most processes were lost, the Infected could still use weapons that they had knowledge of - or could improvise weapons. Most dangerously, they could operate vehicles.

It is because of this that the Berlin Flu quickly spread out of control as the Infected butchered all in their path, and any who fell to them could potentially be reanimated. Those captured would assuredly become one of the Infected. It spread like wildfire over Europe, a second blitzkrieg. Some who thought they weren't infected began to carry it overseas into Britain.

The European Quarantine was funded and began by December of 1945, but the damage was done. Europe suffered from the Infected's spread of the Berlin Flu. Quarantine zones were set up by the military throughout Europe as the Infected were fought, but there was no winning this war. Infected corpses simply allowed the fungal growths to propagate into the land around them, and animals could carry it as well.

Fortunately, the spread of this dangerous infection was stopped in Europe. But the world watches with bated breath, for if the Berlin Flu escapes the Quarantine, it would surely mean the end of human civilization as it is known.

Today is January 31st, 1950. The Berlin Flu is still rampant in Europe as the Infected who aren't reanimated corpses still live and try to spread, and the Quarantine has only helped in containing the infection or protecting the uninfected. While the nuclear option had been considered, it was deemed too costly in both human lives and resettlement possibilities to commit to.

Society in Europe has essentially fallen. The Quarantine remains.





Hello, and welcome to my latest attempt at a “post-apocalypse” RP. In this RP, you will assume the role of a survivor of the Berlin Flu in one of Europe's “Quarantine Zones” - which are safe from the Infected, but are as much to keep people contained as they are to keep the Flu out.

As a survivor, you have numerous options: you are apart of the Quarantine Joint Task Forces (QJTF) - run by the various Allied governments or militaries. Or maybe you are a civilian, under the martial law of the QJTF as they try to both contain and protect you. Perhaps, a doctor or scientist who is studying the Berlin Flu. Regardless, you are trapped in Europe because no one can leave without proper authorization from the High Command of the QJTF.

How will you survive?

(Side-note: I will not be posting a proper set of rules, but just remember proper RP etiquette; including, but not limited to, no godmodding or metagaming. Posts shouldn't be one-liners. Stuff like that.)

Tag, and a question:
Are the inhabitants of the Quarantine zones able to get news of the outside world, or is there absolutelt no contact with the outside world?

The QJTF has installed martial law in all quarantine zones. They control newsflow and such, and civilians are very much regulated to ensure proper quarantine is maintained. The zones exist as much to protect the civilians who aren't infected, as well as acting as a rescue area for those who are still outside in Europe proper with the Infected, as they are to contain even the civilians. All QJTF personnel, when not in a QJTF facility that is sanitary and secure, have to wear mandatory gas masks and protective suits among the normal populace. Failure to do so results in their clearance being bumped down.

Both accepted. I added you both to the roster.

Sweillia, I looked at your post and read a couple other ones - it's decent enough where I'm willing to make an exemption. But I won't make it more than this.

News on the IC: it'll be ready by tomorrow, but I plan to post it once we have a couple more players so that there are at least two players in each Quarantine Zone. Right now, the roster's not quite full enough yet.
