This is not a drill! Repeat, this is not a drill!
Okay, actually it is a drill.
But the need for preparedness is real!

Post here your skills so that when the time comes we can all know our rolls. It's our best chance of survival against the encroaching undead horde. (And who knows. If there's enough to work with I might write out a probable scenario or two.)

Post up your info like this.

Physical Build: (example: 6ft blue monkey)

Combat Experience (if any):

Active Skills: What can you do? Anything from weaponry to blacksmithing to cooking to care giving to hunting and anything in between. If you can do it we'll put it to use. Even that one thing that Liam does. You know the one. If anything could hurt zombie morale, it'd be that.

Knowledge Skills: What's in your head? How do you think we can best use it? Do you have a background in architecture? Learned about the occult? Studied religion? Now's your chance to put that noggin to use before a zombie tries to gnaw on it.

Limitations: What can't you do? If you've got a kryptonite, we need to know. Can't have a blind man on lookout, etc.

Supplies: What do you bring to the table? If you have another table, bring that too. Can't get too much building material.

Misc: Anything else you think we should be aware of.


*Notes:
This isn't a game, per say. Just something fun to do that maybe we can make a story out of. No need for complicated backstories or anything. Just be creative (but reasonable) in filling out the form and show us what you've got.

The second post here will have an easy to quote and fill out version of this. Please keep it reasonable. No more than two or three items per slot, and you must have at least one limitation. No one is perfect! Likewise, don't try to be good at everything. And keep in line with your chosen persona.

No one gets to be immune to the zombie menace. All people are vulnerable no matter what skills or supplies they pick (no zombie vaccines), and Infection can be taking any and all forms from viral to magic. And a variety of zombie types may make appearances to boot, so don't just count on all your enemies being slow and stupid.

Based on your description, I may provide you with one personalized Special Ability. Examples: You may be able to escape combat if you've got stealthy skills, or avoid infectious bites while in close combat if you have melee fighting skills. Maybe you can bless things if you've studied religion, or create a barrier using occult magic.



Time to pitch in and do your part, people! Together we can survive! Let's show those shambling bags of bones what it means to challenge the Sixth Nation!


EDIT: Casting for this story is complete.
Here is the story itself.

Since it's the Nation we're defending, I'd rather we stuck with our ninja/pirate/wildebeesty selves. If you want to embellish a bit to expand your skills, that's fine too. And if anyone would rather try something different that's perfectly acceptable.

Liam's made a nice start there, though he did seem to miss the part where I said "No more than two or three items per slot". Laughing

Now let's see. Special ability for Liam. Thinking
I think we'll go with Bless Weapons.
Using his knowledge of religion and weaponry, he can appeal to a higher power to bless blades or bullets. This results in much higher damage against magic based zombies, and a smaller increase against virus based zombies.

Sound good?

Why not

Six

Physical Build: 6 ft 150#'s

Combat Experience: Bar fighting Laughing

Active Skills: Mechanics on small engines and I know how to make plants grow really good. (farm that food biotch)

Knowledge Skills: Botany I suppose. Shrug Calculations for calibration. Small amounts of entomology. Carpentry. Fishing. Give me some matches and I can start a fire. tongue

Limitations: Fear of heights. UGH!

Supplies: I have my yogurt atm. And Ive always kind of wanted to see what a soil probe and or a sod cutter would do to a zombies skull.
In fact, I have an arsenal of lawn care equipment that can be handy in removing body parts.
Chainsaw anyone?

Misc:
While you all try to secure government places, Im off to the woods of Wisconsin.
Population 0.
Along the way I would gather what ever supplies seemed useful, stocking up on protein bars, slim fast milkshakes, peanuts, and multivitamins. etc.

I know of several places that are summer resort towns only, and I just have a feeling it would be a good way to go for as long as you can. Live off the land. Move only if I gotta. etc.

Six's Ability: One With the Land
Able to cultivate a very dense undergrowth over a small area that is difficult to move through for anyone but him. This can also serve as excellent camouflage if the hider is properly clothed. Also very loud to move through and can give ample warning if anyone tries.


Depending on how many people respond I may just separate them into "squads" and tell each one's story. Thinking If I don't get that many, then I'll still do what I can. Smile

Not sure what ability to give you, Dingo.
A K9 nose is practically a superpower itself, as well as increased endurance and speed compared with any humanoid.
Thinking
Ah, I know. An ability not normally native to your kind.

Dingo's Ability: Operate Doors
Can open unlocked doors not designed with dingos in mind. Even the ones that would otherwise require thumbs.

Perfect. ^_^

That'll do. Smile

Az's Ability: Celestial Navigation
As long as there's no cloud cover, she can easily find her way through any terrain at night by enhancing her geographical knowledge with the ability to navigate by the stars. In addition, low light vision is also increased while under starlight to the point of effectively seeing by lamplight. Having a light source other than starlight at close range cancels this out (meaning it wouldn't stack).

You dare cross a Sentinel, Monkey? I've killed Chimera for less. (Well, not really. Insomniac has sent me quite a bit of stuff at this point...)

Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for the next one, though.
