Seeking 2-4 players for simple Zombie Apocalypse tabletop-like game:

Basic Story:
  • Inspired by the movie "I Am Legend".
  • In 2023, a re-engineered measles virus -- originally created as a cure for cancer -- mutates into a highly viral and highly lethal Rabies-like virus.
  • It spreads rapidly across the planet:
    • 1% of those infected are immune.
    • 94% of those infected die.
    • And the remaining 5% of those infected mutate into fast moving, vicious, nocturnal predators who will come to be known as Darkseekers.


You ... are the Immune!
  • The viral apocalypse -- dubbed "Rabies 2.0" -- struck quickly.
  • You were out and about, doin' whatcha do, when you found yourself surrounded by Darkseekers.
  • You flee to safety, but now find yourself trapped: you are away from your home, away from all that you own and all whom you know, with only the resources you had on you or found in your current location.
  • Three days of mayhem have passed, and finally things have quieted down outside.
  • What do you do now?
  • You must survive ... but how?
  • If you remain indoors, hiding away, you'll starve to death.
  • But if you go outside, you could be attack, killed, and eaten.
  • Decisions, decisions.


How the game is played:
  • I am LITERALLY making this up off the top of my head!
    • I just wanted that out there, in case you were looking for a complete list of rules and guidelines.
    • So ... how do we play a game with no rules or guidelines?
    • Let's find out, shall we?
  • We begin with me setting the stage.
  • Then, we will have you complete a Character Profile.
  • Then, using virtual dice, I will roll for such things as your current resources, your current security situation, your access to weapons (if any), your current medical needs, and more.
  • From that point, you will have to decide what you want to do.


Frequency and length of posting Turns:
  • Me, as Game Master:
    • I will check for newly posted Turns almost every morning, almost every night, and several times in between each one of those mornings and nights.
    • I will respond to your Turn ASAIC ("as soon as I can". I was never a fan of the acronym ASAP.)
    • I will keep my posts short and sweet and simple, for two reasons: one, to keep the game moving; and two, because -- with the recent demise of my computer -- I am operating totally on a phone now.
    • In fact, this page you are reading is far longer and more complex than anything you will likely see in the game.
  • You, as Player:
    • You will hopefully be as diligent as I, though I don't require it.
    • Since the individual characters of individual players don't necessarily have to be in proximity to one another; and since those characters can interact solely with me, the Game Master, it isn't necessary for all Players to play at the same pace.
    • There is lots of flexibility, so ... relax, and have fun!


I have to go to work, but I will add more information later.

If you have an interest in at least trying this out, drop a reply.
