View Full Version : BB's Zombie/Post-Apoc Game Sign Up

It's a game I made up. Need 20 people to sign up. Should play out similar to the vampire game in speed and style. Throwing in a few different ideas to see how they go.

Here's the backstory:

Sometime in late 2012, the exact date having long been lost to history, a strange new illness was born of the jungles in South America. At first, it was inert. Sufferers reported only slight headaches and mild fatigue. But within a week, they would be dead. Or worse...

Government organizations around the world rallied to quarantine the outbreak but it would be to no avail. It was almost as if the disease was...selective...in who it targeted and when it presented itself. Thanks to major airports, infected individuals, unaware they had the disease, were able to travel quickly around the world, spreading the disease wherever they went.

Once the infection “turned on,” 90% of the world’s population was lost within the first week. The vast majority were killed outright, but a select few with noteworthy physical and mental attributes were “chosen” by the disease to remain alive. They still presented as normal, mostly able to think and act for themselves, but it would seem that the disease was controlling them behind the scenes. It was almost as if every instance of the disease was part of a greater, sentient “individual.” Each person was controlled as if through telepathy. They spread the infection further and further, infiltrating clean settlements and laying waste to the inhabitants. Some were “recruited” by the disease to join in the spreading, while others were just flat out killed.

Fewer than 1 million people are still estimated to be alive, though with the breakdown of civilization and technological infrastructure, an exact number is hard to calculate.

Nearly 10 years have passed since the initial outbreak, and the threat of the disease still looms. Small towns and villages have sprung up around areas where vital resources are concentrated. Roving bandits and raiders make life difficult on top of the threat of disease outbreak.

One organization, the ERO (Earth Recovery Organization) sprang up in the American midwest at some point after the initial outbreak. They claim to provide a safe haven for all “clean” individuals and are capable of detecting and treating the disease with a supposed cure. This cure vaccine has become one of the most valuable and sought after items in all of the world. Supposedly, the ERO offers a peaceful, relatively safe life of farming and rebuilding the world...

But refugees who’ve managed to escape claim it to be a hell on earth. Physically fit men are forcibly recruited into the ERO’s military while the rest are sent to work themselves to death farming, mining or building. Women and children are brainwashed from the moment they arrive to bolster the ERO’s numbers.

Our story focuses on Dracown, a small village hidden away in the mountains. With an abundant supply of clean water, wild game and protection in the form of former military and law enforcement officers acting as a peace keeping militia, it may very well be one of the cleanest and safest settlements left in the world.

Unfortunately, a number of refugees recently arrived from another nearby settlement that was sacked by the ERO and ERO scouts have been seen in the forest near Dracown. To top it all off, a number of dead travelers have been found in the area who succumbed to the disease.

A town meeting has been called by the village leadership. In the past few weeks, the number of people in the town have nearly doubled from an influx of refugees, and no one can be sure who to trust anymore as unfamiliar faces have flooded little Dracown...

That makes 20. I could expand by a bit if someone really, really, really wants in though.

I get the feeling that the Psych game is winding down a bit, but it's hard to say. Does tomorrow evening seem like a decent time to start? I'm open to other suggestions as well. I don't have any major weekend plans but I'm going out to dinner tomorrow night and have some typical weekend chores do to, but nothing too major so I'll be around to monitor for the most part.

Go look it up on Wikipedia. But basically, you read the thread, make determinations on who is evil, vote to lynch someone who you think is evil, and then send in your night actions if you have any. Pretty easy to learn.

We're currently at my (what was intended to be) absolute cap of 24, but I can expand by one more if you want in and promise to be active.

You can check out the basics of the game here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_%28party_game%29

I also highly recommend paging through some of the previous games when you get a chance. Try to skip the first post so you don't know who is who (from the list of killed players) and just read through the thread, figuring things out yourself. That's what I did with the LOTR game before I started playing.

You know how first days can go, so even if you can't be around much tonight, it will probably still be going tomorrow anyway.

Me too, I will be able to get on late tonight or maybe real early tomorrow morning, but I'm driving my grandparents up to Boston for my Great Aunt's memorial service. I thought this would be starting after that, but if you are ok with me not getting on much at all during the day tomorrow, I'll do my best to be active after. Otherwise, I'm ok with giving up my spot if someone else really wants in and will be active.

BeerBaron
05-18-2012, 11:49 AM
The first day generally lasts a while anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem. I highly doubt we'll get it in tonight alone. I was planning to start it once I got off work tonight (around 4pm est.)

BeerBaron
05-18-2012, 12:30 PM
So, I just planned out my night. I have everything written up and I just randomized the roles of the 24 people who signed up. Looks like a pretty good matchup.

I'll start sending out the roles after I get home from work around 4 est. I'll then open the thread and we'll just have a pretty lax day 1 since some people might not be around.
