You could be a slick, charismatic, seemingly normal serial killer, it would bring in interesting aspects and scenarios.

Or someone with multiple personalities and even separate jobs [Therefore different abilities for each one] for them.

Playing a serial killer in a post apocalyptic RP seems a bit too cliche for me. Multiple personalities would be very interesting though.

Fears: Heights and Water

Bio: (Two paragraphs minimum.)Tyson grew up on a farm more than 2 hours away from Des Moines iowa. His life was nothing special besides through most of is adolescent life. His father was a drinker but not abusive toward his mother or his sister. At 15 his mother left his father and moved to a small town 30 min away from the farm. Tyson did not speak to his father after the day they moved out.

After dropping out of school Tyson moved out west and spent 3 years living with friends and trying his hand at various jobs he found interest in. He never found one that seemed to fit him and eventually ran out of money, moving back to the town that he had left. Tired of working factory jobs and feeling taken advantage of by a system he did not believe in he went to school for IT work to eliviate the pressure he felt from the working class system he had begun to despise. Spending many hours reading about communism, socialism, anarchism, philosophy. Anything he could find to lessen the feeling of despair he felt with the world around him.

After the world had seemed to crumble after the outbreak, with most of his family missing or already dead, he needed to move away from the already desolate farmlands he was living in. He had an uncle in Chicago. The way he figured it, if he could make it there he may be able to find a support system or at least find a more steady supply of resources. Food, medicine, protection. They had to have something set up in a city so large. Packing up what he could and heading east on I88 in his beat old chevy pickup, he hoped to find some sort of refuge from what was quickly turning into a desperate situation for him.

Alright, just finished the rest. Let me know if I missed anything. I haven't been on this site in a while so I'm pretty rusty with how things work still. Just trying to find something fun to RP

I'm up for it when the app gets accepted. Probably have Tim go out to his station if you're nearby.

Is this good?
As he came out, his eyes revealed a gas station, and he spotted someone inside. John didn't know if they were infected, going to beat him to death or a normal person, he was quite willing to take the risk. Walking up to the gas station, he knocked on its door, startling the person inside, but nevertheless getting they're attention.

This obviously isn't my whole post.

I forget who your character was, occupation wise. Could I say there was a door that he was looking at so my character doesn't just unexpectedly barge in?

He will be in the station scavenging for things before he leaves Windsor for Chicago. Oh yeah, that's another thing. I'm in Canada right now.

Bio needs to be 2 paragraphs. Also, how did he make it to Chicago?

Also, for the IC, I ask that people keep track of where they are and post their location if applicable. It helps to keep everyone on the same page of just where someone is on the map.

It's fine, but if you find yourself near something important make note of it. Don't want to try talking to someone only to realize they're on the other side of town.

No problem, I added some more story and decided to put him on his way to Chicago from des moines. Once I post it won't take him long to get there. Unless something crazy happens I suppose
