World War Z: A History of the Zombie War (OOC/Signups/Open)

Postby Tarnislav » Tue Jul 09, 2019 9:02 pm

World War Z
IC Thread

It all starts from a virus shrouded in mystery. It not only has no cure or vaccine, it also brings its human victims back alive - with a cannibalistic hunger. Yet early on, few people would know the danger they are really dealing with. It has arisen many times in the past in human history. However, when the virus appears once more, the potential for worldwide devastation is far greater than ever. How will the nations of today respond? How will humanity stand its ground as the walking dead are at its doorsteps?

Follow the journeys of countless people as they live through the years of the undead plague.

Premise

This roleplay is based on two of Max Brooks’s novel: The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. Therefore, the roleplay will use elements directly from these novels, rather than the film or games based on these novels. You need not worry about a fast-acting virus and you certainly do not need to worry about fast/running zombies.


Zombie Virus

The Solanum virus is the virus responsible for zombification. It is neither airborne nor waterborne, but it can be transmitted via exchange of bodily fluids (e.g. bites, scratches). The virus replicates using cells in the frontal lobe of the brain, and it mutates other brain cells into self-efficient structures. Zombified brain cells can produce their own oxygen, relieving them from dependence on the respiratory and circulatory systems.

No person is immune from Solanum and there is no vaccine or cure. The only prevention involves amputation of a limb if the site of infection is there; even so, the chances of survival are extremely slim. The time between initial infection and zombification can vary. A person may notice discoloration and fever; followed by dementia, numbing of body parts, and poor muscular coordination. Late-stage symptoms include paralysis, coma and cessation of heart/brain activity. At least one hour would pass before zombification sets in and the person awakes as a zombie.

The Solanum virus can only zombify humans. Some animals (e.g. mice) cannot be zombified and will simply die from infection after several hours.

Image
Zombies

Zombies tend to have wrinkled greyish skin, and whatever blood remains in their bodies would be thick and gooey. The only major organ active is the mutated brain, which drives the cannibalistic tendencies of zombies. Though the undead are very slow, they have unparalleled durability and can seemingly survive serious mutilations. Whereas a human can be killed in more than a thousand ways, the only way to kill a zombie is with severe head trauma or destruction of the brain.

Zombies appear to be adapted to last. They would exhibit delayed rotting or decomposition, and may have greater tolerance to weather extremes such as freezing temperatures (as long as their bodies do not completely freeze in this case). Thanks to unusually-elevated bite forces of zombies, substantial personal armor would be required to nullify any chances of infection via biting. It is not known how the undead get their energy (as with organisms getting energy for homeostasis/survival) or are able to keep their zombified brains oxygenated.

Deviations from the WWZ Novels

  • Zombies will not have improved senses compared to humans, aside from being able to smell blood. Extreme feats described in the WWZ books, such as surviving gigantic oceanic pressures and seeing lit cigarettes/matches from miles away, will NOT apply in the roleplay.
  • Zombies reanimated from fresh/non-mutilated corpses will have temporarily-enhanced capabilities, such as increased speed (at most, mildly jogging or power walking). Zombies that are able to move may briefly lunge forward to grab at prey or an object of interest.
  • Certain animals with sufficiently-complex brains (i.e. mammals) may be reanimated by the Solanum virus. Some of the potential candidates include primates, canines and felines.
  • Certain chemicals such as nerve agents and acid agents can immobilize zombies.


Setting

The roleplay will start on December 1, 2019, which is a bit later than our current time. As with the WWZ novel, the zombie virus will first appear near the Yangtze River in China and will spread to other countries across the globe. The virus will certainly spread with unorthodox means, such as via illegal organ trade (this is also how it was dispersed quickly in the novel).

As zombies slowly start to rise, nations and people may be simultaneously dealing with various real-world issues, such as sporting events (e.g. 2020 Summer Olympics) and political issues (e.g. Iran nuclear deal). Initially, not many people would be aware about the living dead; perhaps people are dismissive of rumors, or perhaps governments are actively suppressing news about the walking dead. Once it is clear that the dead are truly coming back... well, you'll have to follow the journeys of countless people for that.


Rules

  1. OP’s (Tarnislav's) word is law.
  2. Each person is allowed to control at most a total of three nations/characters (three nations, two nations + one character, one nation + two characters, OR three characters).
  3. OP will describe where the Solanum virus has spread to, and people will be able to describe what happens from the outbreak(s).
  4. Roleplay fairly and with reason. If whatever you’re planning affects another person’s country or character, get the person’s permission or consent if necessary.
  5. Use nuclear weapons sparingly.
    1. Also, while radioactive zombies are possible (zombies carrying radioactive particles due to nuclear meltdowns or attacks), keep in mind that this is a zombie roleplay rather than a nuclear zombie roleplay.
  6. Start with pre-existing countries (e.g. North Korea, Somalia, Italy). The original WWZ story ended with many geopolitical changes, but they happen years after the world descended into the undead chaos.
  7. When in doubt, ask the OP.
  8. Don't take this way too seriously. Have a bit of fun!

Sure.

EDIT: also tweaked the character application a bit since it’s a pretty good idea to just combine the traits into a “personality” section

Image
World War Z
Character Application


Character Name: Vera Martinez
Age: 29
Sex: Female

Appearance:
Image


Nationality: United States of America
Occupation: Paramedic

Personality: Vera is one of multiple talents, having grown up in a poor Hispanic home in a more dangerous neighborhood, she has learned to be alert and to keep her eyes open. Due to her job as a paramedic that takes her to all sorts of situations and locations, which require a good deal of strength and endurance - her hobby is martial arts, namely thai boxing. This has kept her tough and also prevented any incidents with some patrons. Like many other Americans, she is zoned off and less curious on what the news brings - more focused on her own life, than what others are doing. She has a revolver in her home, although hasn't used it for years and doesn't carry it to work. As a paramedic, she is skilled in treating day-to-day injuries and issues, yet has few knowledge in more serious and deeper illness, beyond a few theories she read in medical textbooks.

Background: Vera was born in America to a couple of immigrants from Mexico - like many others, her family were illegal immigrants, although since she was born in America, she was granted national citizenship on birth. This made her life easier and more fortunate, as she went to learn namely medicine and had hope to become a doctor. Sadly, she lacked the mind and talent to be a professional physician. Although she did manage enough and decided to instead train to be a paramedic.

Granted, her life in Florida hasn't been easy due to both hurricanes, weak economy, housing issues and a lack of common sense in the southern tip of the United States. Thus so far, she has kept her nose against the wheel and continued her job with a deeper monotony each day - not even minding what is happening in the rest of the world for the time being.

Notes: None yet.

In case anyone's wondering, the virus would at first be spread through the black market (particularly illegal organ trade) and unsuspecting infected travelers.

I will assume control of any countries that no one has signed up for until I approve an application for a previously-unclaimed nation. I will also guide the United Nations; while I will for example control the UN Secretary-General, it will be up to other participants to decide on international issues and resolutions (by roleplaying representatives, etc.).

Absolutely. This roleplay is based on the Solanum virus and the zombies it creates. While there will be some similarities (e.g. how the virus will spread to other countries) with the novels, you’ll have control over what happens to your country/character as days go by. The key thing is to roleplay with reason, such as not knowing the full dangers of zombies until later on.

I've listened to the audiobook three times in a row - so I think I should know the majority and likely miss on some few details.

I am curious though. If you plan on limiting the zombies 'supernatural' abilities. Namely the ability of rotting eyes able to see better than an eagle. Would the zombie' mode of detection then be mostly sound and rapid movement in it's usual 20/20 vision?

Also about the underwater zombies - will you limit them only to being able to float on the surface? Since I doubt, ANY virus having the capability to give a rotting skull the ability to resist crushing depths that should have popped the entire thing like a melon in a millisecond. Or the ability to move at all, in such depths and currents at all.

I am okay with the rest of the Solanum virus though. Also when we starting this RP?

Nationality:German
Occupation:Police/ Swat team
Personality:
A man dedicated to family and duty Roiter takes great pleasure in his job helping people as a member of the German police and especially in his job on the swat team as a breaker. A man to never be out done and enormously competitive he likes to be in the front of everything and will volunteer for any challenge regardless of the difficulty. Works out regularly and while not spectacularly buff he does show muscle. Average intelligence with no college experience to speak of. As a breacher on the swat team he has quick reflexes, good personnel strength, and much confidence in himself though tends to overestimate his own abilities.
Background:
Born in London, England but moving after only a year to Munich, Germany where he has lived his entire life and eventually became a German citizen when he got older. Even at an early age he was fiercely competitive and played several sports including boxing, wrestling, and soccer and felt the desire to win and be the best at every single one. When he turned 15 his father was critically wounded in the line of duty as a firefighter and would be unable to work at his job anymore, because of this Jack and his family had to move to a cheaper house in a less safe neighborhood and attend a less safe and not as academic school. Still excelling in sports when Jack was a senior he was offered a full scholarship to LMU but the scholarship was pulled back because of poor grades and Jack graduated.

After high school Jack became a firefighter like his father had been and was happy with the job for a few years until it no longer suited him and Roiter joined the Munich police force as a patrolman. It was during this time that Roiter met and married his wife and has had 2 children, 2 boys. Quickly Roiter proved he was a capable officer and was moved to the swat team where he found great pleasure in his job and service though his wife disapproves because of the danger he faces on a daily basis.

I am curious though. If you plan on limiting the zombies 'supernatural' abilities. Namely the ability of rotting eyes able to see better than an eagle. Would the zombie' mode of detection then be mostly sound and rapid movement in it's usual 20/20 vision?

Also about the underwater zombies - will you limit them only to being able to float on the surface? Since I doubt, ANY virus having the capability to give a rotting skull the ability to resist crushing depths that should have popped the entire thing like a melon in a millisecond. Or the ability to move at all, in such depths and currents at all.

I am okay with the rest of the Solanum virus though. Also when we starting this RP?

Yes, for this roleplay, zombie vision or hearing would not be much better than a human’s (they'll will also be attracted by the smell of blood or living flesh, if it's not already obvious). This is so that characters will have a reasonable chance of avoiding or sneaking around zombies.

Zombies will also do no more than float on the water or stay in shallow waters. It's also bothered me that zombies survive massive oceanic pressure, and it's one of the extreme feats that will be nerfed out.

I'll start this RP soon, since I've accepted applications for at least two nations with substantial power (Russia and the USA).


The applications for the United States and the Commonwealth of Canada are accepted.

The application for Jack Roiter is accepted.
