    Default (M) Outbreak: Genesis

    Outbreak: Genesis
    (Rated M for all content covered by that rating)

    IC : https://role-player.net/forum/showth...86#post2962986

    June 2025

    A worldwide chemical attack has resulted in an epidemic that overwhelmed all efforts to contain it. Initial attempts to contain and control the pandemic have failed, with the military and law enforcement agencies meeting coordinated opposition that decimated their forces, leaving people to fend for themselves made more difficult by attacks by electromagnetic pulses that eliminated the power grids.

    In a world where the dead rise, people must learn to survive. This means learning to become pragmatic individuals willing to fight for their lives. People had to learn new skills, and adapt old ones to suit their needs. Only the strong survive.

    All standard RPA rules apply.

    The starting point is Washington D.C. It’s been 18 hours since the emergency response failed. That gives you enough time to procure equipment and begin to form a plan of action. The streets are overrun with the undead, and the survivors have to connect and organize themselves to find a way out.

    Your profession tells us what you’re best at, but feel free to have a variety of skills so long as you keep it balanced. I’m not going to ask you to list them. However, by this point you need to be capable of protecting yourself and others through violent action. Don’t have to be comfortable with it, or overly good at it, simply capable and willing to do so. A lot of emphasis will be put on doing so quietly, and preferably without wasting ammunition for firearms. There are no limits on weapons, but be aware of ammo availability and weight. Same goes for other supplies: medical, food, water, and other miscellaneous items.

    Types of Zombies (This list will be updated over time as new mutations and strains are discovered. Keep in mind though that zombies are not the only dangers, as you will come across highwaymen, raiders, and other hostile survivors.)

    Hunters- More common in Rural areas, hunters operate either alone or in packs usually no larger than a dozen. With preternatural senses, they can detect prey around them at a distance, track them by smell alone. Fast and agile, they are difficult to outrun, and have the endurance to pursue over long distances. They’re also highly aggressive, even being found to attack other zombies.

    Walkers- More common and found more commonly in Urban environments, they are usually found in herds numbering between twenty and a hundred. Despite their name, they can move at a jogger’s pace, and even sprint short distances.

    Screamers/Howlers- Usually on the fringe of any group or by themselves, Screamers and Howlers (Depending on whether they’re male or female) start screaming or howling at the top of their lungs when prey is sighted, alerting all nearby zombies of their presence.

    Behemoth- Large and with preternatural strength, these muscle-bound zombies are even more aggressive, known to attack other zombies. Some carry large blunt objects that they use to attack with, while others are nearly impossible to stop. They are capable of breaking brick walls while sustaining minimal damage, and given enough time can break steel hinges. Usually solitary creatures.

    Reapers- All information currently unknown.

    Name: Zeke Edge

    Age: 26

    Gender: Male

    Profession: Farmer/Hunter from Atlanta

    Description:
    Spoiler: The Man 


    Spoiler: The Hunter 



    Weapons: While he can use a gun quite well, he prefers the modified long bow in the image above. He keeps it unwound and in a long protective case across his back along with nearly fifty sharp fiberglass arrows with interchangeable heads.

    He also carries a colt MK IV and a tactical tomahawk

    Equipment: Whether on or off the farm Zeke always carries a Gerber multi-tool, a three inch folding pocket knife, a five inch fixed blade Gerber knife, a high powered flashlight, waterproof matches, a lighter, and 550 cord.

    Now though he's fully kitted up gas mask, a large coil of rope, high-powered binoculars, three tin canteens extra batteries, twenty four more rounds for his colt, and arrow making and bow repair kits all held neatly in his old rucksack.


    Clothes: Clothed as above thick tan pants, a warm field jacket with a hood, wool finger-less gloves, tac-vest, and heavy brown combat boots.

    Background: Born on an old plantation a few miles south of Atlanta. While not originally belonging to his family the Edges having been tilling the soil there for four generations. Tobacco, cotton, and various kinds of animal meat were the primary exports coming off Edge plantation.

    Zeke is the youngest of the family, his brother Ike was twenty-eight, but they've always been close. And being the only kids around for miles they were their own best friends. Hunting fishing, tearing around the woods and swamps near their home. This was life and it was a good one for many years. That was until Ike decided to follow in his Grandfather's footsteps and joined the Army. Zeke was too young to join so he got saddled with Ike's chores, it took him a bit of time, but he grew stronger each and everyday and business continued as usual.

    Though as his brother completed his training and went off to war the mood changed. His father and grandfather always subscribed to the be prepared for anything philosophy, but the day Ike got shipped out they doubled-down on it turning the idea into an obsession. Building a fallout shelter, buying up stocks of ammo and supplies, and began training heavily in survival, woodcraft, and anything else they could think of. Zeke learned what he could, but when news came to the homestead that Ike had been killed in combat his family went nuts. They sold their crops and fields and turned the plantation house into a small fort.

    They turned towards teaching other doomsday preppers for income, but Zeke was somewhat disenchanted with it. He was tired of living like the death of the human race was right around the corner. So on his 26th birthday he bought a one way ticket to DC, he had been talking with a friend up there who had a nice paying job at a shooting range for him. Even if he was trying to get away from the doomsayer life the habits traveled with him. He had his full bug-out bag and weapons stuffed in the back of his old jeep and arrived in DC a full week before shit went south. Now it had been in the news that rumbling of war were rolling through the White House, but Zeke never paid it much mind. That was until zero hour hit, the dead had arisen and the young man was almost caught in the first death toll. But all the training and preparation he'd been balking against for years saved his life and now he's making plans to get back to the old homestead and make a last stand with his family.

    Here's my character! I'll be team medic (for some reason...)

    Name: Bryce Fletcher

    Age: 28

    Gender: Male

    Profession: Maryland State Police Aviation Command, trained medivac pilot, trained search-and-rescue and airborne hoisting. Warrant Officer 2nd Class Maryland National Guard, trained paramedic with flight paramedic certifications and medivac pilot.

    Description: Short black hair and brown eyes. He has an athletic build and a slightly tanned complexion. He has three tattoos. A tribal fox on his right shoulderblade, a star of life (blue six pointed star with the rod of Asclepius on it, usually found on ambulances), and his National Guard medivac squad's insignia on his left arm. He usually wears graphic tee-shirts depicting various video games or super heroes he likes, or just plan black or dark blue. He also has his medivac pilot's uniform and National Guard uniform. He also has a couple of hazmat suits stored away in his helicopter that he requisitioned after the base he was at was abandoned.

    Weapons: Bryce collects firearms, swords and knives. After the outbreak he had time to get only two things from home weapon wise. A early 1900's light cavalry sabre and his utility knife. He "liberated" a FN P-90 SMG complete with holographic sight and silencer from the base when he commandeered his helicopter.

    Equipment: HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter with medic decals on it. Basic medical supplies, two hazmat kits (protective coveralls, gloves, duct tape, boots, full face visor and respirator, two O2 tanks). And the most important equipment of all, his medic squad (3 other people, one more pilot and two other flight medics).

    Background: Bryce had grown up in the suburbs around Baltimore and had always aspired to being a paramedic. When he was a kid he was always interested in the human body and how it worked, which translated into top marks in high school science class. He had also been doing various sports, from fencing, HEMA and archery, to karate and kickboxing, and a little bit of soccer. Once he medical school he became a paramedic and was chosen by the Maryland State Police Aviation Command to be a pilot for one of the medivac helicopters. His skills were also the reason for him to sign on with the Maryland National Guard. WHen the outbreak occured he was activated and deployed to Fort Detrik as part of the US biological defense program, and he helped out ferrying sick to the base for the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases so they could work with the CDC on a cure. Unfortunately the situation went from bad to FUBAR before his helicopter even left the airspace around the National Guard base. With only his helicopter and his squad he went about collecting what he could from his house, and Fort Detrik. He is now hiding with his medic squad outside of Washington DC, helicopter low on fuel, and their food supplies dwindling.
