So Will It Be: Zombie RP [OOC | OPEN]

"So will it be with the resurrection of the dead.
The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable;
it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory;
it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;
and it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body."

1 Corinthians 15:42-44

It's been a couple of weeks since a mysterious, deadly disease that brought down an entire village in Kongo first made news.

After seemingly passing away from old age, an elderly woman rose up from the casket in what resembled a miracle. Soon after, however, she would get violent. Mindlessly attacking the attendees of her own funeral, she would eventually be restrained, but not until after she bit a number of local residents. Considering it a folk tale at first, the WHO was slow to react, eventually sending a small American-led team to investigate the 'patient zero' of what at that point began to slowly, but surely shape up to be a global epidemic. The team would lose contact shortly after reaching the village, believed to have been the victims of an attack by a local militia group.

Right now, the presence of the disease has been confirmed on every continent, excluding Antarctica, having reached pretty much every major industrialized country. The United States of America is no exception, with the first confirmed case noted in Burlington, Vermont. The authorities are cautious not to stir any panic, preparing to contain the spread of the disease in secret.

Welcome to "So Will It Be", NationStates' first Zombie RP in a while. Set in a universe not that different from our own, its plot will follow a group of survivors trying to get by in a world where a mysterious disease turns ordinary people into mindless killing machines.

The world of SWIB is based on its own rules, drawing inspiration from multiple works of fiction. Survivors will have to figure out how their new reality works step by step, with little starting knowledge. The more someone pays attention, the more they know and learn. Players are invited to engage in world building, all suggestions will be taken into consideration.

The RP is not fully open-world, characters will travel and even possibly split up, however the starting point - the city of Burlington, VT - is clearly defined and will be the main focus of the first act. Player characters will be guided towards interacting with other PCs, sometimes being pushed to do so by the plot.
Rules


1. OP has the final word and is the arbiter of all things related to the RP. I may ask for input and players can make their case, but if the OP says their word is final... it's final.

2. Keep things PG-13. While violence is expected to take place, do not use an unnecessary amount of detail. Occasional vulgarities are allowed, but do not overuse them. Sexually explicit content should kept to a minimum (use the fade-to-black method if needed).

3. Do not use the Z-word. The word "Zombie" is for comic book nerds, use something else or risk being laughed at.

4. Metagaming is not allowed.

5. Player characters have a degree of bodily autonomy, if you want to do something to another player's character either ask the owner or expect the OP to make a decision. PCs will have a slight plot armor...

6. ...Having said that no one is invincible. Your actions will have consequences. If your character does something where there is no reasonable way of them surviving... they die.

7. Put some effort into your posts. One-liners should only be used for conversations.

8. Respect your fellow players.

I like the OP, OP. I will have to get a night’s sleep over what character I want to write as... There are a lot of interesting possibilities.
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

Lack of a real name means compensation through a real face. My debt is settled

I added a nice image to the OP, hopefully you'll enjoy it.

On another note: As I said, world building will take place as we progress, but I want to hear your opinion on something that I've been considering. When it comes to the deadliness of zombie bites I'm thinking they should become more deadly as the zombie rots away. A bite from a person who just "turned" would be less likely to cause an infection than that from a long deceased walker/undead/whatever we decide to call them in the end (the NPCs who'll get bit and turn early on will just be really unlucky).

Name: Benjamin "Ben" Wilson
Age: 20
Sex: Male
Occupation/Role: University student
Appearance:
Image

Usually dresses elegantly, loves his sweaters and sweater vests. Dresses down for his journeys. Always wears glasses (is short-sighted)
Personal Belongings: two suitcases filled with clothes; some snacks and water; a baseball bat; wallet with some cash, his ID and driver's license; passport; two pairs of eyeglasses (one on him, one in his glove compartment)
Personality: approachable, non confrontational, rational, helpful
Strengths: Besides being a good studentTM, Ben is also a fairly experienced driver, having undertaken the New York City-Toronto journey a number of times. His friendly, easily approachable nature can be considered both an asset and a liability.
Weaknesses: Tends to avoid confrontation, especially in physical form, partially because he's a bookworm with a minor aversion to physical exercise. Wears glasses due to his poor eyesight, he's not blind without them, but he's not a marksman either.
Biography (two paragraphs minimum): Born and raised in NYC, Ben enjoyed a quiet, middle class childhood. Raised by a single mother (his father died when Ben was young) he was taught from an early age the importance of personal responsibility, becoming a friendly and helpful individual. Eventually he would graduate high school and, after much debate, apply for a university in Canada.

Not the one for frequent plane trips, Ben would travel to Montreal in an old station wagon with most of his humble belongings in the back. This made him a frequent visitor in Burlington, Vermont, which - while not on the most direct route to Montreal - was charming enough for Wilson to stop by every time he was in the area. During his first days in Montreal he befriended and eventually began a relationship with his neighbor and a fellow university student Laurence "Laurie" Martin.

A student of political science, Ben doesn't have a lot of insight on the new disease, but is skeptical of the claims of a "zombie virus".
Miscellaneous: is a (not so) proud owner of a used station wagon.

Reads mostly non-fiction books, his boyfriend introduced him to Marvel movies.

Passing through basic training Kyle was soon shipped to Iraq and Afghanistan where he served 4 tours before finally settling back in the states and deciding to settle down back in his homestate. Life as a civilian had little to not interest for him as Kyle had always loved serving and so he joined up with the National Guard of Massachusets where he served to train new recruits and assisted in various natural disaster through the years.

It was after news began to spread of a new unknown disease from the Kongo spreading all through the eastern hemisphere that the entire State guard of Massachusets alongside several others was activated and moved to Vermont to the city of Burlington. Kyle is unsure what the fuzz is about but part of him suspects it must have something to do with the Kongo virus.

I'm slightly confused about him being physically strong but also not athletic? I would appreciate if you could elaborate on that a bit, because these two traits seem to be contradictory in my mind. Does that mean he is physically strong in terms of being able to lift heavy things, but not having a lot of stamina (e.g. while running)?

Indeed. He is physically strong in which he could... potentially punch a boulder (RE reference there). But doesn't have much in terms of running stamina.

Okay, that makes sense. If you could just replace "not very athletic" with "low stamina" and maybe age him up by like 2 years, I will accept the application.

Just before the plague began, the family decided to take a 2 week trip to Burlington, Vermont, where Deshawn's grandmother lived, to see her and introduce her to their child, Sarah. When the plague hit, Deshawn and his family had just arrived in Burlington. There, a small horde of 'zombies' attacked their car. After escaping the small horde, Deshawn volunteered to find his grandmother while his wife and daughter went north to Montpelier, where a safe haven was rumored to be. When Deshawn found his grandmother, she was dead. He tried to inform his wife but his phone had lost its signal. He was forced to bury his grandmother in the backyard of her house.
After grieving and losing contact with his wife and parents, Deshawn was forced to shelter in the house for a number of weeks as the plague got worse outside. Eventually, food began to run low and he was forced to abandon the house in search of food, bringing the only remaining edible food with him.
Miscellaneous: N/A currently.

I'm sorry if this wasn't made clear by the OP, but the RP starts shortly before a full scale outbreak of the virus.

Biography (two paragraphs minimum): Dallas born and raised, Deshawn lived your typical upper middle class lifestyle as he grew up. He valued his education and applied for college, and while there he met his future wife. When he finished college they bought a house and moved in together, and while Deshawn tried to apply for jobs, most of them couldn't hire him. Eventually, when Deshawn and his wife had their first child, it was decided that Deshawn would be the stay at home dad. He bought a Colt to protect himself and his family.
Just before the plague began, the family decided to take a 2 week trip to Burlington, Vermont, where Deshawn's grandmother lived, to see her and introduce her to their child, Sarah. When the plague hit, Deshawn and his family had just arrived in Burlington. There, a small horde of 'zombies' attacked their car. After escaping the small horde, Deshawn volunteered to find his grandmother while his wife and daughter went north to Montpelier, where a safe haven was rumored to be. When Deshawn found his grandmother, she was dead. He tried to inform his wife but his phone had lost its signal. He was forced to bury his grandmother in the backyard of her house.

I think the app could use a couple of additions. You wrote he couldn't find a job - why? What's his opinion on the new virus? Does he think it's a real threat? What's his relationship with his wife like? What is her name? How old is their child? If the child is old-ish, why did it take so long for them to introduce their daughter to the grandmother?
