"Nobody is alone. Not here anyway. There's always someone around. Rotting or not."
The outbreak's been going on for only 6 months and by that time, it's feeling almost impossible to find anyone whos not trying to eat you. Human or not. The worlds a scary place and not just the zombies are the ones you should be scared of.
So first things first. This is going to be a decently big group roleplay that I've been dying to start for a good while now.
These zombies are your average, typical zombies. Just like the walking dead.
Take out the brain, take out the zombie. Easy as that. They're heavily attracted to sound, so try your best to be quiet and fast.
They're easy to take out with just a few if you know what you're doing. If you don't…you're screwed with just one bite. Its very easy to be overwhelmed by them in numbers.
Cities are where they gather the most, though forests are their second option. They'll eat anything live they can get their hands on.
That's it about the zombies, as if you're here, you most likely know just about everything else. Any questions, you can ask me anyhow.
For the humans. As said before, they're not all friendly. The smart ones have trust issues and don't hesitate to kill. The desperate are a little too trusting and just want company. The loneliness drives them insane.
There are multiple groups, all of them think they're the good guys in their own eyes. To others they're either potential allies or enemies.
We decide who is who.
First things first. I can say no. For any reason. Don't take it personally please. I don't say no to people often but don't totally rule out the possibility please.
Don't put any basic characters please. No Mary sues or whatever. Have some originality.
With that, make sure the characters you put in are going to be important to the plot of the roleplay. Make sure they're not dragging the roleplay down or holding it back.
I don't put up with unnecessarily short responses. I get it if there's nothing more to say but that's about it. Don't just put in what they're saying. Put in what they're feeling, thinking, senses of all kinds. Three sentences at the very least. If your replies are unreasonable, and consistently short, I will call it out. I'm not a bitch i swear but i do want a good roleplay and i want everyone to have a nice time.
There will be romance. Take smut and stuff to the pms please if there is any.
There will be gore, violence, and mention of triggering topics. Specifically with the mention of triggering topics, put a TW at the beginning of your post.
triggers include: Mention of SA in any way shape or form, mental illness, self harm or the action of any of these things.
As for violence and gore. do the same thing please. Just put like a ///gore warning/// thing at the beginning or before the gore happens in bold and youre good.
My rp my rules. They're not unreasonable but if you don't follow them, you will be kicked. They're easy rules to follow.
You may have 4 characters max. You can add them in any time in the roleplay. So take advantage of that and have fun
With the character sheets. Links are welcomed for appearance. Even if you do have a link, please give us a heavy description of your character's appearance. You don't have to be super detailed on personality, for we will find that out in the roleplay as we write together. If you don't know what details to put in your character appearance go off of mine. You don't have to ofc.
I think that's all for the rules. I will ask for a writing sample of yours if I'm not familiar with your writing.
Here's the character sheet
Backstory: (also optional)
here are my characters I'm gonna use throughout the whole roleplay. i am in a roleplay with these exact characters as well. if yall see this, don't judge these are my apocalypse people and i love them.
Name: Cassius Avian Thomas Sandoval
Gender/pronouns: male He\Him
Shipping: not particularly, but ya know we can see. He’s more of a caring, father figure than anything.
So here's some paintings I did of him ♡ in my stories he's a vampire but in this he's a human dw. But imma show you some vampy paintings of him I did as well ^^
Human Cass/aka Cass in the rp:
Vampire Cass: (im only doing this bc i have a lot more paintings of him like this so you can have more of an idea on his appearance :)
(On this board you can look at his board as like a whole if you'd like. All my art, or other sections. I don't mind. I'm pretty sure it'll just take you to it)
So all of these are his face and body, the only difference is his pointy ears, teef, snakey eyes, and his long hair.
Now for the description!
Cassius is a tol boiyo standing at 6'4" and has a beefy stance. He weighs about 225 maybe a little more. He's too big. Broad shoulders, filled out chest (thiccc thights) He has big rough hands but they're not big as in like a box shape. They're only big in size, as they're on the slimmer side.
His skin tone is a rich chocolate brown and his hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes are a nice white blonde color with more saturated orange undertones. It goes down to probably just above his shoulders and he normally has it up in a bun with little strands strands sticking out in his face.
He has a beautiful egyptian nose, going along with his narrow face shape. He has decently full lips? But not a whole lot. I'd say a medium length.
He has beautiful chocolate brown eyes, looking gold in the sunlight. His nose has one nostril swirly piercing on the side (all his jewelry is gold btw) and a small, septum ring.
His ears are decorated with cold rings as well.
He has very sad looking eyes, more on the downturned side. They're not small but they're not big by any means. They're very soft as the rest of his demeanor. He keeps his expressions very calm and almost a longing look? He doesn't do it on purpose I swear •~•
Okay He has a scar going from his left eye (you're right if you're looking straight at him) dead enough to completely blind that eye and down through his top and bottom lip on that side. His lips have healed good for the most part but they are partially cleft. If that makes sense?? The pictures help except it's a lot less in this)
His other (hurt) eye is always closed bc he doesn't wanna scare anyone bc when he opens it, it just looks real nasty. He was attacked by his (now dead) bestie when he was younger :(
On the side side of his eye he has a huge tattoo of a snake crawling up his arm from the back of his hand to up, wrapping around his neck. The head at the back of his hand and the tail wrapping around his neck. It's a nice tan color with nice black scales with an upside-down cross on the head. It's a bit faded but not a ton. Still terribly noticeable
I think that's all???
(Oh he also wears a golden, wedding ring)
First things first. He makes up for how scary he appears to be in how sweet he really is. He is a protector and like a lovely father to anyone he possibly can be.
He talks slow and nice, his voice scratchy but his words oh so soft. He doesn't use any fast movements unless need be.
He's a very sad soul and he can explain why in the rp if you get close to him :,) and it shows in how he treats everyone. With such respect, care, and love.
He is very mentally healthy other than the fact that he's just a sadder person. Oh he also has like severe ptsd.
Cassius is very easy to talk to but won't stand any threats. If someone tries to hurt him he's not hesitating to break their arm. He will avoid killing a human being at all costs though. You could say that's a flaw in this situation. Weak even.
He doesn't care about what others think of him but he does care about how they feel because of him.
Cass can be tough, quick on his feet, and smart when he needs to be. But other than that he's really relaxed. Again, is seen as weak a lot.
Name: Opelia Christine Sandoval (Cassius' daughter)
Gender/pronouns: female. she\her
Sexuality: idk shes a baby
Shipping: lol no
She is a smol bean with dark skin like her father and dark wavy (very messy) hair that's just a big darker than her skin. She has nice brown eyes like both of her parents, nice rosy cheeks and a smaller nose, taking after her mother :)
Every now and again you can catch her being very giggly and joyful with her dad though :)
You can tell by her kind heart and gentleness that she was raised by Cassius. He's a good dad lol
unlike her father, shes very trusting and honestly just wants a friend.
Backstory: (also optional) tbd
Name: Jesse Nadhi (pronounced Jessy. Dont call her Jess shell punch you)
Gender/pronouns: female she\her
Ive got these paintings of her i did :3 https://pin.it/2CZSeAP
She stands tall at 6’2” and Weighing roughly 180-190lbs. Jesse has more of a muscular build with more broad shoulders and a good bit of definition in her muscles.
She has darker skin (as seen in the painting above^) with green eyes and a caremel faded color along the rim of her irises.
Jesse is part arabic part german. She has a thick german accent and a low, raspy voice.
She has a wolf cut goin on with thick back hair that she sometimes slicks back. She has a black bandana on her at all times be it on her arm or in her hair.
She likes socializing, but isnt very good at it, as she comes across as mean and crude in a lot of her words and actions. Jesse is playful but again, in kind of a rude way. She doesn’t get along with others much. She isnt very likable (at first anyway, but ill let you guys be the judge of that)
Once you get to know her, shes protective and easy to hang around, not caring what anybody thinks of her and the word “YOLO” is her motto. Or her excuse for doing wild things for no reason. She isnt the most trusting and her morals are literally non-existent. You try to get in her way, she will do everything in her power to get you out of the picture. She has a very hard time expressing love
