Journey To Boise (Post-Apoc RP) (OOC) (signups)

Postby Flarbinia » Sat Sep 12, 2020 6:50 pm

Theme Song

Introduction
The year is 2073. Ten years have past since the Apocalypse. Ten years since fifty-one percent of the United States population died, causing the economy to come crashing down and society to collapse. In this lawless land, the only safe haven are the cities that have survived the apocalypse, islands of law and order in a sea of chaos and barbarism. A refuge in a hurricane where everything from food, water, and medicine to coffee beans, alcohol, and tobacco are rationed, creating a thriving black market. Their only lifeline is America's highway system, supply convoys travelling between them, the scarcity of gas having forced those with functioning vehicles to convert them to solar power or some other fuel source.

Plot
You are member of the supply convoy heading from St. Louis, Missouri to Boise, Idaho. Some of you have joined the Idaho Convoy because of contractual obligation. Others have joined in the hopes of starting anew in Idaho. Whatever your reason, you will not last long without a weapon, whether it is a sword or a gun, a crossbow or a bow and arrow. You only have a few hours to prepare for the journey, so spend your thousand Ration Cards wisely. Any Ration Cards you have left will be spent if you need to be patched up.

Rules
1. No Godmodding, Metagaming, or Flaming. Three strikes and you're banned
2. No overpowered characters or flying vehicles (yes, this includes gliders)
3. Follow standard NS rules
4. You're characters are not immortal. They can die, though we'll try to avoid it
5. Players are only allowed to have as many characters as they can handle
6. Have fun!

SKILLS/WEAKNESSES: Driving. Marksmanship with revolvers. Knife fighting. Stubborn
REASON/ROLE IN CONVOY: Cargo. Jack's boss, Mister Grayson, wants him to deliver 2,329 pounds of silver ore to Boise, as Grayson Mining Inc. will lose its government contract to Diego Industries if another shipment doesn't arrive on time.

BIOGRAPHY: Prior to the plague, Jack Davis was a security guard for a bank. However, when he was getting ready to go to work, the area surrounding the bank was quarantined due to a newly discovered plague. Seeing the writing on the wall, he packed up everything he could and fled in his Ford Explorer. Unfortunately, he only had enough fuel to last two months, forcing him to abandon the Ford Explorer. He spent the rest of the year wandering through the countryside, scavenging what he needed and avoiding firefights like the plague. When he finally reached civilization, he headed to the nearest bar, desperate for a drink after all he had been through. It was here that he met Mister Grayson, CEO of a recently established mining firm. Jack was offered a job that would pay his tab and he accepted on the condition that he got to choose his vehicle. Recently, Grayson Mining Inc. is faced with the possibility of losing its government contract due to delays, placing Jack in jeopardy of losing his job. In order to avoid both possibilities, Mister Grayson has assigned Jack Davis to deliver the next shipment of silver to Boise, no matter the cost.

VEHICLE TYPE: Truck

FUEL SOURCE: Whiskey
ROLE IN CONVOY: Cargo

NAME: No one knows his real name, everyone just calls him "Texas" or "Tex", referring to the state he is from, but in some cases, he is referred to as "The Devil".
SEX: Male
AGE: 25
DESCRIPTION: "Tex" is a rather imposing man, standing at 6'4" and having a very filled out profile while not looking overly muscular. He is caucasian and his skin shows very little tanning, and has some freckling on his face, neck, and forearms. His hair is deep red in color, and his arms and legs are noticeably hairy. He has two identifying scars on his face, with the most distinctive being a set of claw marks running from his forehead and all the way down to his neck on the right side of his face, and the other being a burn scar covering the lower left part of his face and part way down his neck. The former he received after he was attacked by a cougar, and the latter was the result of a self-made napalm explosive going off before he could reach cover. He has the latin phrase "Aut Neca Aut Necare" (Either kill or be killed) tattooed on his back, which is his personal adopted motto. His most distinctive feature, however, is his head attire. He always dons a rambo-style red headband and a pair of reflective aviator sunglasses, and as a result of this, no one has ever seen his eyes.

SKILLS/WEAKNESSES: Tex is a dangerous and swift close-quarters fighter, skilled with firearms, his hands, and his trusty D-guard Bowie knife, the results of a fight with him are often gruesome. Tex is also very knowledgeable in methods of intimidation and torture, most often employing them for personal gain in the post-apocalyptic world. He is also skilled at making explosives, and knows how to make something that goes boom from whatever may be available at the time. However, he is notorious for being rather unsuited for teamwork and not able to be in social situations without some form of violence or threat of violence occurring, and would most likely be asked to stay behind should someone need to barter or otherwise cut a deal with someone. He is known for being very verbally abusive, and not generally pleasant to be around, with his black sense of humor and seeming lack of empathy for others being an instant turn-off for most. As well as this, Tex has a notoriously short temper, and those who make him even slightly angry will pay in some form of violent outburst.

REASON/ROLE IN CONVOY: Tex is providing escort in return for the ability to loot anything he pleases off of dead raiders looking to pillage the convoy, with the only reason he cares about the convoy's safety being his own gain.

GEAR/BELONGINGS: Select-Fire AR-18 Assault Rifle: An original rifle made in Costa-Mesa by Armalite, fires 5.56x45mm NATO and .223 Remington rounds. Tex has done some choice modifications to the weapon, having taken the stock off and replacing the old furniture with tan polymer furniture, as well as adding a surplus M4 sling to the weapon. Tex uses original AR-18 40-round box mags (of which he possesses 12) taped together in a "jungle style" configuration and marked with red tape, distinguishing his magazines from mags intended for use on the AR-15 platform so nobody mistakenly uses his mags (which are not compatible with the M-16/AR-15 series of weapons). SIG Sauer P220: A dependable hammer-fired double action/single action pistol, Tex's is chambered for .45 ACP, and it feeds from an 8 round box magazine. Tex has added tritium night sights to his pistol as well as a lighter trigger for an increased rate of fire. SADF Pattern 83 Chest Rig: Used to carry magazines for his AR-18, holds six mags, and the other four spares are carried in pouches on his belt. Tex dons other military surplus gear as well, including unissued multicam cargo pants, a tactical vest from Desert Storm, and a West German holster for his SIG P220. Gloves and Footwear: Tex wears a pair of combat gloves with inbuilt brass knuckles for last-resort situations, and wears a pair of steel-toed tactical boots for the same reason. D-Guard Bowie Knife with a 12-inch Blade: Kept sharpened to the strictest of standards and polished until one's reflection can clearly be seen on the blade, it is a handsome weapon that treats flesh like warm butter. Multiple limbs have been removed from their parent corpses by this blade.

BIOGRAPHY: In the early days of the plague, Tex lost everything. His family, his friends, his home, everything he held dear was snatched from him. He began to realize that the new world would have different rules, nothing governed civility, and violence was all-pervasive. Perhaps as a sort of preemptive coping mechanism, he started to decrease the value of human life, which culminated in him killing a group of starving people asking him for food without provocation. He told himself that he couldn't afford to help others, that his life was more valuable than anybody else's. After this, something grew inside him, a craving for some sort of notoriety in this new world, and now that the rules had changed, he could get what he wanted with nobody governing his means of doing so. For 3 years after the end of the world as was known, Tex travelled around, heavily armed and always looking for a fight. He was no longer an innocent high school kid, he was grown up, a master of his own destiny as well as the destinies of others. He became known for systematically pillaging and murdering communities set up by groups of survivors who desired some form of order in this world, and with time Tex came to enjoy the taking of human life. After his 3 years of rampaging, he had made a name for himself, quite literally in fact, being known as "The Devil" for doing what was considered such awful deeds that he was in league with Satan himself. He toned down his attacks afterwards, demanding respect and fear from those he came across, as they knew what would happen if they did something that upset him in any way. Over time, he became less active and rarely did any mass killings, and actually began to work on bolstering the economy of the post-apocalyptic world, with his reasoning being: "I can't do much if there isn't anybody around." The end of the world had completely messed up what used to be a perfectly normal 15 year old kid, and turned him into a killer who profited off of other's suffering. However, he still holds on to a tiny part of his old self, and perhaps he isn't yet beyond redemption.

Weaponry: Winchester Model 101 over-under shotgun, Beretta APX 9mm pistol with scope and suppressor, machete, brass knuckles, baseball bat. Plenty of ammo, too.
Possessions: bulletproof vest, an extensive selection of tools, binoculars, camping gear, rations (both canned & MRE), first aid supplies.
BIOGRAPHY:
Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Marcus was able to parlay his studies in mechanical engineering during college into a position working as a mechanic for an organized smuggling outfit. He started driving on his own a few years ago when the breakdown of law and order got a little too hot to handle, and has made a good living from it by post-apocalyptic standards.

VEHICLE TYPE: Tractor-trailer
MODEL: 2022 Freightliner e-Cascadia sleeper cab, hauling your average generic 48' dry van trailer
FUEL SOURCE: electric, powered by battery packs mounted on the chassis sides where an ICE truck's fuel tanks would be, as well as some scavenged Tesla flat-pack batteries located under the cab floor. Charges via any commercial-grade quick-charge station or Tesla Supercharger, and there are solar panels mounted on the roofs of both the truck and trailer in case the charging infrastructure isn't there.
ROLE IN CONVOY: Bulk cargo hauler, can easily ram roadblocks/walls if needed
MODIFICATIONS:
Truck: 6x6 drivetrain conversion with four-speed automated manual transmission (gotta get all that armor moving somehow), all-terrain run-flat tires, windshield debris screen, front & side crash bars, front & rear power-operated winches, auxiliary driving & clearance lights, bulletproof cab glass, head-up displays, night-vision and infrared cameras, and a mixture of steel and Kevlar-composite heavy armor plating.
Trailer: remote-controlled selfsteering axles and wheel hub motors (improving maneuverability and giving it on-demand 18-wheel-drive), light armor plating, backup & surround-view cameras.
IMAGE/DESCRIPTION:
The truck and trailer are both painted gloss black, I don't really know what else to put here since I listed all the mods previously

The truck and trailer are both painted semigloss black, I don't really know what else to put here since I listed all the mods previously.

Flarbinia, just because the truck now seems wildly OP in hindsight I feel like I should point out that semis can't really go off-road, it's ridiculously heavy because of the batteries, motors and armor, and range and charging time are going to be ever-present issues.

Uhhh, lemme think. Water and medicine rations (not technically approved for distribution but the paperwork's forged correct), plus a shipment of compact solar generators.
