The Roman Empire is at the height of it's power. From the green meadows of Brittania to the desert dunes of Syria, the Emperor rules over millions. The Roman Army had known victory is war for centuries and Rome's few enemies feared and respected the might of the Legions.

But for Rome, the most insidious enemy came from within.

It started as a plague. First in Rome, then to the surrounding provinces. The death toll was catastrophic, but things became far worse when the dead began to rise again.

Now, a few brave survivors must set aside their differences and work together to weather the storm and find salvation. Should they fail, then their corpses will soon join the empire of the dead.
-------------------

So I tried to run this RP a long time ago, but I've recently decided to give it another shot.

The players would be citizens of the empire and can be of any nationality or social class as long as its plausible. Your characters would then try to make a life for yourselves in the apocalypse. Will you stay in Rome? Or perhaps seek help from Rome's enemies? Or maybe even find a cure?

Here is a character sheet for you guys to use. If there is anything you think is missing, please let me know and we can work things out.

Name:
Description (a written description or a real life picture is fine. Please no anime):
Age:
Gender:
Social Class (Patrician, Pleb, Slave?):
Nationality (Are you a Roman? Are you from outside the empire?):
Personality (Are you easy to get along with? Are you standoffish?:
Brief Backstory:
Equipment (what sort of things does your character carry on them?):
Skills (Can your character fight? Are they a trained physician?:

All the general rules apply. Don't be a dick. If you have an issue, then message me and we can be amicable about it.

I can't wait to hear from you folks!

Good questions.

The year is 119 ad. Rome is at the height of its power and Hadrian is the emperor.

And we will start in Rome itself.

Sorry for the delay with my character sheet. I did my best to stay historically accurate, save making things up like the small Gaul rebellion, but if anything doesn't work then let me know.

After suffering for an hour or two, I got the first post up. I know it's not much, but I hope it's enough to get everyone started.

Name: Ella Blackheart.



Description: 5'1 she is slightly muscular but is weak. Has scars over her body from a tough childhood. Her body is slightly curved she is skinny but she can be an amazing girl her hair is dirty blond but when in the sun the tips appear to turn golden blond. Her eyes are a light brown and when in sun they appear to have golden flexes in them.

Age: 18
Gender: Female
Social Class: Plebbeain/Slave
Nationality: Mainly Roman, along with hints of Gaulic.

Personality: Ella is very passionate about many things, especially so with the people she loves. When she cares for someone, she cares for them deeply and has experienced enough loss in her life to never want to feel it again. Ella can often be called rude or even evil, but she obviously loves her homeland and friends very much.
Ella feels things both strongly and deeply. While she is often teasing, witty, and carefree when she is happy, Ella's most immediate reaction when angry or sad is to channel her darker emotions into a barely-contained rage or killing calm. This gets her into trouble more often than not, Ella also has a strong moral compass. Though she often tries to suppress the memories of her tumultuous past, her experiences have shaped her into the woman she is, and that is a woman who does not tolerate injustices. (Even though she's forced to daily) Rarely easy to get along with if you don't make her mad, however, if you make her mad she will no longer talk to you nor will she like you.

Brief Backstory: Had a tough childhood, with never enough money she was used to being low on food. She often went without food, and water, she was basically the house slave and was rarely seen around Rome. She was told to stay in her place and she did. She had multiple scars from either falling or getting beat for messing up. Even though she wasn't officially a slave, she mise well had been. She had learned how to cook and clean at a young age, her fighting although self-taught was still enough to stay alive.

Equipment: 2-3 books, A dagger, some water, and some dried fruit.

Skills: Ella, even though she's a girl does know how to fight, she is actually a really good fighter and knows how to fight in multiple outfits, including dresses. She knows how to use daggers, swords, and a bow and arrow. She knows a bit about medical, how to stop bleeding, and CPR but that's it. She only knows how to fight because her dad taught her before he died, that or it was self-taught.

So, as much as I want to continue this, I've had a real life event happen that has to take precedence. If anyone wants to take over GMing this in my absence, please PM me.
