  • The Risen Dead!

    Ok, this is stolen from another forum I'm on-it's, well, about the risen dead! Zombies! Zam-bies! It will be a somewhat informal "wargame", where a team of 8-10 survivors will be given a beginning scenario, and then will be given a couple options-those options lead to a resolution and then another couple options. You must agree about what to do, and may offer modifications to options, but modifications only. I'll try to offer more opportunities for you to vote on things, to make it more interesting. You will choose a name and gender, phyisical appearance, including height and weight, which can come into play in certain scenarios, and some info about your character before the zombies rose. Keep everything practical, as this is still a serious game.

    So copy this template, and feel free to post pics for your weapons...

    Name: [Insert name and (M) or (F) to indicate gender]
    Physical features: [height, weight, race if you want, other traits are optional]
    Character background: [Insert some stuff about your character-is he military? Is he a teacher, or was he a teacher? Was he a pro skateboarder? Come up with anything you want but within feasibility]

    and now for the fun part-copy this template for which weapons to have, and be sure to take into account the relation between body size and weapon weight/size, and all that stuff. Feel free to post RESIZED pics of your guns. Also post which caliber-some guns can be different ones.

    Primary weapon: [Generally an assault rifle but it doesn't have to be]
    Secondary weapon: [Generally a pistol, but it could be a PDW or a small SMG like an MP5K-it's up to you]
    Melee: [Optional, but recommended, and also recommended to be something like a tomahawk or a long knife, and you can carry two melee weapons]

    So fill the stuff out, and pass this thread along to friends-get people interested-on the other forums it's a fun game, and I think we can have fun with it!

    Here's an example of my character from the other forums I took the idea from:

    Name: Andrew Pen (M)
    Physical features: 6'1", white Caucasian, average weight
    Character background: History enthusiast-got pretty good grades in High School, did college and ROTC, becoming an officer and serving in Afghanistan, where he received a medal. Became a historian through American Military University. Also a gun enthusiast.


    I won't post pics, but my loadout:

    Primary weapon: Barrett REC7
    Secondary weapon: Berretta Px4 Storm .45 conversion
    Melee: Cold Steel brand Trench Hawk and M1918 Trench/Knuckle Knife

      Not to mock your game... this is directed at the whole Zombie Genre'

      Name- I dunno, some dinky Asian chick, weighs about 85 pounds soaking wet, call her Sissy.
      Loadout- One M-4 Sherman.
      Mounts one flamethrower side by side with one howitzer (as in Iwo Jima)
      Preference for canister and H.E. ammo, but it really makes no difference.
      Should be no effort to attract a crew. She drives, accuracy of the gunners should be little issue dealing with the whole Inhuman Wave thing.
      Game Over.

      Not cinematic enough, I guess.

            A sniper-interesting, and not just a DMR too. I'll probably have someone with you at all times that has an automatic weapon as better protection.

                          Ok guys keep an eye out for the playing thread, once we get some more people. I'd prefer at least 8 but 6 could do, but for the kind of area you'll be in I think 8 would be better than 6 or 7.

                          On the playing thread it will be business-I don't want off topic or otherwise unnecessary posts. Just discussing the situation to come up with which of the options I give you will be the best. Also, I might have to alter Dashy's character's dress...for practicality reasons.

                              We just need at least one more person, depending if you mates want six, seven, or eight characters.
