The Walking Dead: Out of the Shadows






OP: Convallaria
Co-OP's: The Hoosier Alliance


When a mysterious and unknown pathogen begins spreading throughout the United States, a deadly domino effect is set in motion that will soon wipe out most of humanity within a few months. In suburban Los Angeles, the concerns of a global catastrophe are not yet realized, and for the general public, it is business as usual while the airborne virus slowly infects its subjects. But in the midst of a string of highly unusual series of deaths and occurrences on the west coast, it seems that there may be something far worse happening than what the news has simply been describing as a bad 'flu' season. As the CDC begins to realize the extent of the epidemic, it lies on shoulders of those who are willing and most perceiving, in order to survive what is yet to come. But how long can this eerie tranquility last before natural deaths turn into reanimation? How long until the hospitals can no longer manage their dead? How long until the CDC runs out of options? Suddenly, life as everyone knows it is brought to an end. And as the chaos eventually ensues, bewildered survivors must band together in factions to survive the dead and manage dwindling resources, leaving the survivors struggling between saving civilization and saving their own lives. And for those who make it past the first few weeks, it isn't only the dead that they must worry about...

Welcome to the Roleplay!


Hello and welcome to The Walking Dead: Out of the Shadows. This RP takes place shortly after the globalization of the fictional virus featured in the televised Walking Dead universe. It will attempt to establish new characters and events not featured in the show, and it will be a collective story tailored by the decisions and interactions of the characters involved. We will start in the Los Angeles Suburb of Pasadena just as news coverage of a man that had reportedly 'assaulted his Family and devoured a neighborhood cat' reaches the internet. Each member could be from any background (Politician, business, teacher, military etc.), but will eventually join together (location TBA) with the same goal in mind: to leave the city and form a settlement.

Rules

1. I am OP. So what I say goes; nevertheless, I'm not spiteful and will gladly hear out your complaints, so just let me know!
2. For goodness sakes, just listen to the Co-OP's. In a nutshell, they're extensions of myself.
3. Punishments (God forbid) will be on a situational basis. Nobody likes a slap on the wrist, so please behave.
4. As for characters, I would limit them to no more than a few, for quality purposes.
5. Important NPC's will be controlled by yours truly, unless I give express approval for others to introduce them.
6. No godmodding, no metagaming, no spam, and it goes without saying, but be mindful and use basic RP etiquette.
7. No one liners, unless your character is in a conversation. Otherwise, try and keep each post one a short paragraph at least, just like we're in grades school.
8. Rules are always subject to update as needed.
9. This whole thing is subject to change as well, though I will notify everyone if that happens.

Sabrina Kae
Image

Age: 28
Sex: F
Height: 5'4"
Weight: 122
Skills: Highly Intelligent, Friendly, Stronger than she looks
Weaknesses: High Strung, Socially Awkward, Distrusting, Anxious
Personality: Sabrina is a very high-strung and nervous character, and displays these characteristics even more so when she is under stress.
Occupation: 2nd Year Emergency Medicine Resident
Equipment:
  • Backpack
  • Locket
  • Duffel Coat
  • Boots
  • Stethescope
  • First Aid Kit
  • Leather Journal + Pen
Bio: Sabrina was born in Sacramento, and moved to LA in the seventh grade. As a child, Sabrina did well in school and was also talented musically. Her tastes in activities are preppy and possibly motivated by her desire to please other people and build camaraderie with her neighbours. She also has a twin brother named Peter, who is four minutes older than her, and lives 45 minutes away. She is half Japanese, and loves Christmas and sometimes refers to Christian history, philosophy, and practices, makes allusions to Classical history, as well as secular self-actualization advice. After completing medical school and her internship, she served her residency at UCLA. Two years into college, she got married. However, the marriage got off to a rocky start after her husband had an affair with a woman he met on the flight to their honeymoon destination. By the time she graduated in 2010, she was separated from him and she finalized the divorce just before starting work, and just in time for further tragedy to strike: her mothers illness. Her mother Sun was diagnosed with stage 3 liver cancer, and the family tried multiple times to convince her to undergo therapy, with Sun refusing, and saying that it was useless since her cancer was at such a late stage.

Sabrina's father became an alcoholic at this point as a coping mechanism, and during one of his binges, left the house for several days just as Sun's time ran out. She died peacefully, but Sabrina felt betrayed with her father for being absent at the time of the death. Following the funeral where his spiral into alcoholism became apparent and caused a scene, Sabrina took him home where she would give him an ultimatum that he unfortunately never accepted. But after severely injuring Sabrina by accidentally driving through her living room drunk that night, she permanently shunned him from her life for all the destruction he instigated. She hasn't spoken to him in 8 months, and is unaware of what has become of him. Nevertheless, this has taken a negative toll on Sabrina's perception of relationships, and she has grown to be somewhat mistrusting, especially of those who drink. After the accident, she moved in with her childhood best friend, Christine, who was quite helpful in comforting Sabrina throughout the discourse. To this day, she carries a locket given to her by her mother, as a token of hope and encouragement.

RP Sample: Exempted.
EXTRA'S
(These are not required, but are things which I think add some depth to a character.)

Likes: Broadway, camping, sewing.
Dislikes: Drinking, heights, canned peaches.
Greatest Fear: Drowning.
Moral Alignment: Lawful Good

Vera Fairbright
Image

Age: 20
Sex: Female
Height: 176cm
Weight: 75kg

Skills: High endurance, parkour, strong self-control.
Weaknesses: Introvert, egotistical.

Personality: Vera is like many of her generation - thinking too highly of oneself and assuming no limits to their capability. In her case, she has excelled in perfecting her body and thus - thinking she is better than others. A true city girl, whom is still not comfortable in large groups or of the nature outside the concrete jungle.

Occupation: Cashier
Equipment:
  • Watch
  • Tracksuit
  • Backpack
  • Hunting Knife

Bio: Compared to other people of her life - Vera Fairbright is as average as they come. She didn't have any high ambitious or desires in life - as she hadn't figured out what she wanted in life herself for much of her childhood and school years. Most of the time, she occupied herself by riding with her bicycle or going climbing along the walls and old houses in their neighborhood.

Overtime she started to develop a desire for parkour, finding it something that suited her mentality of being away from the reality of the world - without having to wander the woods or deal with the insects and bugs that she was grossed out by. In time, she became rather good at it - being the best in P.E. While the rest of her grades were average. Her circle of friends remained small - the kind that she met only in school and not much outside, as she wasn't that much into the wild parties they organized or the action of getting drunk - as one near-encounter with a drunkard soured her opinion of the idea. By the time she finished school, she didn't have any idea on what to do with her life; as her grades weren't good enough to get a scholarship and she didn't want to take out loans or waste time studying non-stop. Thus her start in life wasn't much, beyond getting her own apartment and working at a nearby 7/11 as a cashier. Occupying her time with work, visiting the gym/parkouring around the bloc or playing some games on her computer.

Fredrick "Fritz" Howe
Image

Appearance:(minus the vest, knee pads, and rifle)
Age: 19
Sex: Male
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 135 lbs
Skills: Firearm experience, independent, resourceful
Weaknesses: Loner, paranoid, violent
Personality: Fritz is a loner, preferring to be by himself. He can be quick to anger and doesn't have a very strong moral compass, though he isn't a sadist.
Occupation: Criminal (drug and gun dealer, common thief/mugger)
Equipment: Walther PPQ pistol
3x full PPQ magazines
20 gauge pump action Mossberg shotgun
14x shotgun shells
Wallet ($43 in cash, ID, various business cards from "clients")
Address book
Pen
Small backpack (contains various illegal substances)


Bio: Fritz has lived in LA his whole life. He was born to poor parents, in a poor neighborhood, and went to a poor public school. However, even with all the "poor" stuff in his life, Fritz had a good family. His father wasn't abusive, his mother was kind and loving (and of course his father was too), and they worked hard to provide all they could for him. Regardless of the good family life, Fritz still got into a lot of trouble. His parents were almost never home, both working all the time to make ends meet. Fritz used this time to get involved with the wrong people and make some bad choices. While he never was addicted to drugs, he did partake here and there and got dragged into selling some on the side. He caused a lot of trouble at school and dropped out his junior year. He ran away from home and got his own apartment, from which he sells his stash of drugs, guns, and fake IDs. Of course, he's not selling any military grade weapons, just the occasional handgun or sawed off, things of that nature.

Fritz has been hanging out with the same crew since highschool, taking part in deals, jobs, etc. He's robbed a handful of gas stations, liquor stores, and whatnot with the group, but thankfully wasn't with them when most of the crew was arrested for a string of badly timed crimes, of which Fritz had taken part in several. Still, they didn't rat on him and Fritz smuggles them whatever they want from the outside, making a lot of money from the underground black market in the prison. Throughout his life, Fritz has killed only a few people, all of which were in self defense when deals went bad. That being said, Fritz has noticed how little the deaths seem to bother him...
RP Sample: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=460038&start=200
My posts begin near the bottom of page 9

EXTRA'S

Likes: Fellow people of low standing, camping, the streets, and the occasional fight
Dislikes: Snobby/well to do folk, book smart know-it-alls, using drugs
Greatest Fear: Burning alive
Moral Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Elizah (Eli) Rhosyn
Image

Age: 24
Sex: F/Female
Height: 5'7 (170cm)
Weight: 161 lbs (73kg)
Skills: Athletic, observant, patient.
Weaknesses: Independent, won't consult others.
Personality: Eli doesn't like to conform to others and is very independent. She prefers to be alone, though she doesn't mind company, and enjoys the quiet moments, living life by the minute. A recluse from people, she enjoys the serenity of nature and her work. From her travels, however, she's no stranger to working outside the law.
Occupation: Traveling Photographer
Equipment:
Backpack - Travel gear, snacks, water, extra clothing
Jacket/Coat
Pocket Knife
Canon Camera + Lense
Compass
Bio: Eli was born to a wealthy lawyer and businessman and grew up in San Francisco, CA, though she had a strictly 'normal' teenage lifestyle. She idolized Laura Croft and was generally the quiet girl in school. She didn't bloom until her high school years, where she took track and field and found her love in photography. She became star of her track team during senior year and was eligible for a scholarship, though she turned it down. She instead focused on her photography and honed her skills.

Coming out of high school, she set off to explore while her friends went to college. With help from her parents and her own growing income, she set up a stable lifestyle and met various people from different cultures. While the thrills of the adventuring Laura Croft and Indiana Jones enthralled her childhood, she found her place in the tranquility of nature. Still, she often visits home to see friends and family.

Elizah (Eli) Rhosyn
Age: 24
Sex: F/Female
Height: 5'7 (170cm)
Weight: 168 lbs (76kg)
Skills: Athletic, observant, patient.
Weaknesses: Independent, won't consult others.
Personality: Eli doesn't like to conform to others and is very independent. She prefers to be alone, though she doesn't mind company, and enjoys the quiet moments, living life by the minute. A recluse from people, she enjoys the serenity of nature and her work. From her travels, however, she's no stranger to working outside the law.
Occupation: Traveling Photographer
Equipment:
Backpack - Travel gear, snacks, water, extra clothing
Jacket/Coat
Pocket Knife
Canon Camera + Lense
Compass
Bio: Eli was born to a wealthy lawyer and businessman and grew up in San Francisco, CA, though she had a strictly 'normal' teenage lifestyle. She idolized Laura Croft and was generally the quiet girl in school. She didn't bloom until her high school years, where she took track and field and found her love in photography. She became star of her track team during senior year and was eligible for a scholarship, though she turned it down. She instead focused on her photography and honed her skills.

Coming out of high school, she set off to explore while her friends went to college. With help from her parents and her own growing income, she set up a stable lifestyle and met various people from different cultures. While the thrills of the adventuring Laura Croft and Indiana Jones enthralled her childhood, she found her place in the tranquility of nature. Still, she often visits home to see friends and family.

Jason Blaire
Image

Age: 22
Sex: Male
Height: 185cm
Weight: 84kg
Skills: Historical fencing, basic outdoors survival, cool-headed.
Weaknesses: General disregard towards other people, stubborn, smoker, has trouble sleeping.
Personality: Generally aloof and laid-back to the point of appearing almost apathetic or disinterested in most things, Jason prefers not showing his emotions or any noticeable vulnerability to others. He is nevertheless quite conscious and vigilant of his surroundings, becoming serious and focused if the situation really calls for it, or under heavy pressure.
Occupation: Clerk at a bookstore
Equipment: Duffel bag
Pocket knife
Assortment of books
Jacket
Silver cigarette case and lighter
Model 1840 cavalry saber
Bio: Born and raised in Denver to an upper middle class family, Jason led a mostly comfortable if unfulfilling life. Although he did well academically, it was never enough to satisfy his very strict parents, which strained their relationship. In turn, he became increasingly more detached from them and school in general, developing a lack of drive toward most things. During his years in high school Jason was simply just going through the motions of life, decidedly putting as little effort as possible as to get by. The two notable exceptions to this would be his ever-growing interest in books and general knowledge, as well as his relationship with his cousin Marcus. Marcus would become his closest friend, often going with him camping, fishing, and skiing, as well as introducing Jason to what would become his second biggest hobby, historical fencing.

Once graduated, he went on to college at the behest of his father, who pressured him to mayor in business. However, this newfound freedom only made him feel him more lost, and he proceeded to occupy his mind with drunken self indulgence. After two disastrous semesters and a much lower level of emotional stability, Jason simply dropped out, to the dismay of his parents. In an attempt to start anew, he gathered his belongings and what money he had saved, before deciding to move to Los Angeles where Marcus lived. Since then, he landed a job in a bookstore, started fencing again, and was slowly getting himself back on track.

Got a question GM.

How shall we progress the story? Or whom will be doing it?

I'm going to move into day two now unless there's an objection. I'm basing events off of the walking dead wiki's timeline. By now, the hospital's going to start seeing infected, the CDC will make a statement, and random people will start getting attacked in the street etc.

Edit: I'm thinking it might be a good idea if there is a riot on day 3, which is how most of the characters will group up/meet. Day one and two can be for general backstory/character development.
