Your date is wrong. It should be 2043 not 2040. Minor but felt I should inform you.

Wait, Beia, you remember the Dominion of Wyoming I made up last thread right? Could there be a formal expedition into Colorado by the Dominion where they ended up setting up a small town north-west of Denver?

Reposting my APP for Jefferson Huntzman from last RP.


Nation NameMaverica
Birthplace:Lancaster, Susquehanna Confederation (Pennsylvannia)
Ethnicity: German American
Age: 58

Pic/Discription
Jefferson is a older man with brown hair and blue eyes. About 5 foot 10 inches. He is still a active person and is considered by many very youthful for his age.

Occupation Traveling Gunsmith

Immunity:Partial

Personality: Jefferson is a man that is very honest and trustful to people from freinds to strangers. But these qualities tend to lead him to trouble when confronting shady figures.

Skills Gunsmithing, Salesman

Likes Guns, cookies, working with people

Dislikes:Being alone, violence, wilderness

Belongings:

Bio Jefferson Huntzman was born into a lower middle class farming family. As the youngest of two brothers he was not in line for inheriting his father's land along with this Jeff never had a heart in farming, spending most of his hours at his Grandfather's store in town. There he grew a talent of managing stores and bookeeping. In school Jeff was never much of a popular kid as he avoided violence and loved learning more. His brother usally turned a blind eye though when people beated Jeff up. As the smartest in his class he was soon offered to go to college in 10th grade but refused and instead got a apprenticeship from his Grandfather in running a store, to Jeff's parents and brother's dismay. Soon after graduating from his apprenticeship his Grandfather died and with him the only support he got from his family. Now his father pushed him to work on the family farm like his brother, but Jeff had other plans. Using his apprenticeship past he opened a farm store in town where he become quite successful even contributing to putting the local Tractor supply out of business. This will not last long however, soon his father died and his mother sold the farm and his brother owned a farm and had several children with Gared as the oldest boy. So Jeff moved north and opened a Gunsmith in Sunbury where he repaired and made many guns. Even teaching his brothers son Gared a bit about gunsmithing. Later dark times came. The outbreak has started and Pennsylvania falls into chaos as settlements lose contact and fight each other over resources and bandits are everywhere Sunbury becomes a very powerful settlement controlling where the west branch and east branch of the Susquehanna connects. Jefferson becomes a very wealthy man by manufacturing Guns and ammunition for the local militia in these dark times. Later the dark times stop as a The Susquehanna Confederation is formed with Sunbury as the capital. Now hearing that he could make good many as a gunsmith in the west he leaves Pennsyvannia with a small group of about 15 men. The trip is full of dangers from tribes to brutes but Jeff's peacefull nature saved the group several times from cannibals and other humans, but by the time they reached Aspen only 4 men remain. Jeff quickly settles down and starts fixing guns again and making ammunition. Though He gains very little riches he becomes loved by the townspeople. When Aspen is attacked and raised Jeff escaped but scared from the attack of Aspen. He walks alone for days almost being killed by a bandit but eventually is confronted by a group of 3 Susquehanna Guardsmen Soldiers who were sent to explore the western wastelands. From them He learns about how the Confederation was invaded by New Yorker Barbarians and razed Sunbury, but also how the survivors of the invasion have reformed the Confederation and are rebuilding. The group now travels towards Salidia. As they traveled the group met Gared Huntman who was dragging a heavily wounded Matt along. The heatfelt reunion was cut short when Mike the leader of the soldiers took Gared hostage as a traitor. After a long walk to Salidia Jeff and anouther soldier kill Mike and his loyal soldiers to let Gared and Matt escape.

When the group entered Salidia Jeff once again started repairing weapons for the town militia who were fighting the Vultures. Though after a while the Vultures bust into the town and ease it to the ground. Luckily Gared, Matt and Jefferson escaped death and headed south to Ranton New Mexico for the winter. He now holds another small gunsmith shop in Ranton, manufacturing and fixing guns and reloading bullets.

I'm done, finally. A spot of writer's block hit me on the bio, but all's good now. :)

Name: The Watcher
Birthplace: LA, California
Ethnicity: White
Age:39
Pic/Description:
Image
Wears a similar cloak to that of his peers, which hides his weaponry. The most handsome out of the three, his face striking and sharp, is appealing to quite a few. Also wears worn faded brown traveller’s boots and sun-bleached trousers.

Occupation:Same as the others, of course. Swordsman, Edgelord Walking Man, and Fading Legend.

Equipment: Shortsword + Longsword and a collapsible M1 Garand, 8+16 rounds in 8 round mags.

Immunity: Full (quite a lucky bunch, aren’t they?)

Personality: Slightly more reserved than either the Evictor or the Vagrant after his voice returned, the Watcher prefers to sit back in conversations rather than let himself be known, unless he has an idea or something he thinks is important to contribute to the discussion, adhering to an old quote of Plato, 'Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.' The Watcher also enjoys the finer things in life, such as the now-delicacy coffee, and uses such treats as an excuse not to speak. The easiest to annoy of the Walking Men, he keeps his irritation under wraps for the benefit of his friends. While a affluent upbringing once made him arrogant and assertive, the time and experiences that have passed have mellowed him severely.

Skills: The Watcher has the same level of swordsmanship of the Evictor, an adept but not yet masterful, although he strives to achieve further. His quietness helps him blend in, he knows how to not be conspicuous in places like bars or taverns. Due to his love for coffee, he’s learned what little he could and If he finds ingredients, tries his best to make something nice (usually black, hardly any milk around.)
Likes: Coffee, fine drinks, peace & quiet, sophistication and sophisticated people.
Dislikes: Low-quality drinks, people who are less than smart, periods of time where nothing interesting happens,
Fears: Death, losing his friends, T-14 for the little confirmations there are, saying the wrong thing in a conversation and inflaming someone.

Bio: Unlike either the Evictor or the Vagrant, the Watcher's childhood took place in an affluent, upper middle-class family in which quite a lot of problems were dealt with for him, such as the question of entertainment, agreeable colleagues and comfort. Spoiled from a young age, he had become used to a rich lifestyle, and was able to go to the same private school as the Evictor when he was nine years old. The twelve-year old Evictor at the time was at first a subject of disapproval from the elitist Watcher's point of view, a year of gradually increasing conversation forged a friendship, and soon they were best of friends as the Watcher's more assertive attitude was unappealing to his other schoolmates. When the Watcher's began fighting, a sad story of quite a few rich families, the young Evictor supported him, cementing their camaraderie. In return, the Watcher encouraged the Evictor to join the school's fencing program, which they both stayed in for the remaining time before the Break, giving them a very slight boost to their swordsmanship skills.

When the Outbreak struck, and the Watcher's parents fled for saftey, they refused the prospect of taking his best friend, and in anger the twelve year old searched for the Evictor, only to find him with weapons.

<See Evictor + Vagrant Bio>


RP Examples: I have a master’s degree in creating edge, from Oxford. That experience? :P

ROSTER has been updated. KILLS have been updated. DATE/WEATHER (average) has been added above the TIMELINE.

Yes, Mutts or just about anything else can be eaten so long as it is cooked first. It's mention in the OP that T-13 can be destroyed by high heat, so cooking food will allow even those few with no immunity to eat. Regardless the virus won't survive long outside a living host anyway (perhaps a day or so at most). If you were really desperate one could eat a Reaver so long as you cooked it well enough. May not taste good, and would it be considered cannibalism?

Maybe. You'd need to TG me more details before I outright say yes or no.
