The Walking Dead RP [OOC][OPEN, EP. 4 STARTED]

The Survivor Stories



The world has fallen, and the living have become prey for the dead. All across America, we have seen the disintegration and downfall of human dominance and society: social order crumbling, infrastructure failing, and the human psyche reverting to its natural state of survival. But is all hope lost? Some say that safety lies in Nebraska. Some, in Europe. Others say that there is no hope, and that there never will be, that all is gone, and they are the only left. Many "opted-out" in the first few weeks of the apocalypse, most succumbed to the hordes of infected, but a small few were able to survive. Now, they must weather this onslaught of the undead the best they can. People will die along the way, friendships and trusts will be broken, but in the end.. will it be for the greater good?



This RP is based off of AMC's The Walking Dead. Our group of characters, not unlike Rick's group of survivors, will start near a city. Instead of being in Atlanta, Georgia, we will start at the city of Ann Arbor, Michigan. There won't necessarily be as many walkers here as in Atlanta, but we will be starting in August, just a month or two away before it really starts to snow in Michigan. That is an added challenge, as well as the fact that large masses of walkers are beginning to migrate west, which will put our group of survivors in danger of encountering a horde. I'm looking for unique characters, so this means not using any of the archetypes used on the show. Sure, you can create a character with Rick's attitude, or have him be a cop, but no copycat characters will be allowed.



Code: Select all
NAME:
AGE:
NATIONALITY:
RACE:
SKILLS: [Be realistic.]
WEAPONRY: [Not everyone owns a gun. This could be a pipe, if that's what your character has access to.]
VEHICLE: [Once again, not everyone will own one.]
BIOGRAPHY: [Keep it brief, but make sure it backs up how you have the weapon or vehicle you do.]
APPEARANCE: [Picture preferred.]




NAME: Johann Steele
AGE: 31
NATIONALITY: German-American
RACE: White
SKILLS: Skilled shot with most weapons, tactical experience, stealth (from hunting & Marshal training), survival expert.
WEAPONRY: Sig Sauer P229, Hunting Crossbow, Hunting Knife, small weapons cache (explained in bio).
VEHICLE: Black Ford Explorer
BIOGRAPHY: Johann Steele was born in Germany, but spent only 3 years there before moving to Ann Arbor, Michigan with his parents. He is the son of a wealthy businessman and a stay-at-home mother. He was always an adventurous soul from the beginning: outside all day, playing with the neighborhood kids in games of war, tag, and other childhood activities. He was always fascinated by the Ann Arbor police force, and so he decided from a young age that that was what he wanted to do in his life. He got into hunting when some of his friends asked him to tag along in the forests outside of the city. He went along with the kids' parents and found a lifelong love that would carry into his adult years. He began to hunt religiously and did so at least three or four times a week, even when he entered into high school. Immediately after graduation, he was shipped off to Police Academy, where he passed with slightly above-average marks. He then signed on with the Ann Arbor police force, where he became an Officer. After several years there and after being instrumental in several high-profile cases, he was approached by the US Marshals. They wanted him to become a Deputy Marshal under the aging Marshal of the district he was in. He accepted the offer, went through the challenging Marshal training which he passed with high marks, and began his life as a US Marshal. 5 years in, the district's Marshal was rendered senile by a stroke, and he was promoted to the rank of Marshal of that district. He has served with the Marshals ever since, including doing the best he could during the Apocalypse, but ultimately putting his own survival in front of his duties as a Marshal. He was able to escape back to his house after the military cordon around Ann Arbor city hall was breached. He found his wife and son there, but they too had fallen to the infection. It was the hardest thing he ever had to do in his life, but he was forced to shoot both of them. He loaded up his weapons into the back of his Marshal-issue Ford Explorer, and set off to try and get out of the city as quickly as possible. The weapons cache including his Sig Sauer P229, a Glock 18, an AR-15, a Mossberg 500, his Hunting Crossbow, two Hunting Rifles, and a .30-06 Hunting Shotgun, along with at least two boxes of ammunition for each gun.
APPEARANCE: Image. He can almost always be seen wearing his US Marshals jacket.

I'd be very interested, but I'd prefer if it didn't take place in or near Atlanta. It was already explored heavily by the show, so I feel it would be advantageous to look elsewhere.

You actually have a good point. What if we started in, say, Michigan? It would be a completely different environment to survive in. It's colder, it snows heavily there, and it is more densely populated than Georgia is. Or, we could take the ironic route and start in Nebraska.

Heh, I'd like either of those. A more populous state would be preferable for me, though, so references to events in Georgia could still be made.

Yeah, we'll go with Michigan. I'll start making the OP and application after I take a shower. Just woke up.

This is soooooo coincidental. My friend just showed me the series like a month ago and now I can't stop watching. I just finished the second season and I can't wait to see the third season. I'll definitely make a character. I promise I won't drop out this time sentinel.

NAME: Scott Sheridan.
AGE: 37.
NATIONALITY: American.
RACE: Caucasian.
SKILLS: Being a Recon Marine, Scott has extensive firearms, explosives, and hand-to-hand training, as well as leadership training as an NCO. He is very athletic and is also a certified scuba diver. Growing up in a rural town, he learned how to hunt, fish, and survive out in the wild.
WEAPONRY: Being a gun-loving redneck, Scott owns a number of firearms. When the shit hit the fan, he was only able to grab his Remington 700 with x6 Scope, his Mossberg 500 with 24-inch barrel, and his M9 Beretta. He also managed to grab his USMC Ka-Bar Combat Knife.
VEHICLE: 2004 Chevy Tahoe with Ann Arbor Police markings.
BIOGRAPHY: Growing up in rural North Carolina, it was Scott's dream to join the Marines, just like his father and his grandfather. Graduating from Boot Camp at the top of his unit, he soon entered the Force Reconnaissance Training Program and became a Recon Marine. Just after completing his survival training, he fought in the War on Terror, earning numerous combat decorations in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He soon married a Navy Nurse and transferred over to the Marine Reserves, moving with her to Ann Arbor and becoming a police officer. When the zombie outbreak began, they had to quickly grab and run as their neighborhood became a warzone. Scott's wife became a victim, forcing the Marine to flee the city on his own.

The AR-15 is an automatic Assault Rifle, but ammunition for it will be pretty limited.
