Fan Fic Preparation Thread

edited May 2014 in Forum Games

First off. Many thanks to Harpadarpa and Clayton_Boylan for inspiration for this thread. They are amazing writers and definitely deserve some mentioning, and recognition.

I will make a thread similar to Harpa's. The characters will be the forum users of the Walking Dead, in a zombie apocalypse. Note that this is only a preparation thread not the actual one. It will basically set up the basis, and foundation of characters, and the story.

Here is the story thread

We have a lot of people, so new joiners will have to come later. However go ahead and make a character, you will probably come soon. Also. If your character has died, you can make a new one, but they won't come in a long time, because you have already been in it.

I will post the subjects below. To enter please reply to the comment.

    Name: AWESOMEO.

    Personality: Warm hearted, loyal to true friends, and willing to sacrifice everything for what he believes in. Easy tempered, and will achieve anything he wants due to strong will power. He's a realist, reacts first in any situation due to strong instincts, and knows how to free-run quite well.

    Backstory: A post military pilot who moved to America in order to Learn computers in college and write on the side. His family stayed in his homeland.

    Awesome, Raging_Blades!

    Name: LeeTheProfessional or just Pro

    Personality: For this story I'll put calm, cool, collective. A born leader but usually the Lone Wolf, doesn't mind working with a team that can communicate and have each others backs though. Sarcastic and witty, likes to make people laugh, will be friends with just about anybody, doesn't judge anyone and respects those who give respect back. Willing to help those in need, Fearless and tough, if he has to fight or get somewhere/something he will usually do it in a sneaky manner and avoid making a big mess, by the time they realize something is up I'll be long gone.

    Backstory: Ex Hitman. I had a contract to kill a man, they offered me more money than usual, which was weird, but I didn't question it. On my mission, I uncovered the truth about my agency, which was basically an inside terrorist organization, not only that but as soon as I completed my mission, the pilot was to terminate me and it was basically a suicide mission. My target informed me about it and he had all the evidence to prove it. I went rogue and helped him escape. I went back and got revenge on my former boss by putting a bullet in between his eyes. I exposed the agency and they were shut down. A few weeks later the ZA starts.

    Setting: Hmm, I'll start off camping outside near a farm. I'll be alone at first but would like to later be apart of a group.

  • There are dislike trolls at the moment, just ignore them B]

  • Thanks! I like your character :).

  • Not a problem and I added the setting for you, thanks for this can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Name: John Kozlov

    Personality: Mostly tries to keep his cool and be compassionate and sympathetic but when others threaten him or others he is not afraid to throw somebody against a wall to get his point across that he is not to be ****ed with. Can take care of himself well. Moderate Russian accent but others can understand him.

    Backstory: He had a variety of jobs before the apocalypse including being Ex-Military, A cop, and Trained Assassin and Office Worker. He has some survival experience, enough to stay alive. He tends to keep the rest of his backstory to himself. (I will reveal more backstory in the form of him warming up to the other group members.)

  • Cool. Sounds tough and helpful!

  • Haha little bit OP but every zombie story needs a couple Daryl's.

  • What Comes After. XD Love it!

  • Name: Greg Harper

    Personality: Jackass to strangers but loyal to his friends, Greg is sarcastic as all hell and an expert deadpan snarker. Paranoid around police officers or members of the military due to his past.

    Backstory: Four Days In Greg, like many others, took to the streets to begin looting. After seven years of dead end jobs and the disapproving looks of his parents he decided that he'd use the chaos of the end of the world to take what he deserved. Greg broke into a gas station, his first stop, with an old pistol, but shot and killed the clerk by accident. Merely the latest and greatest of a line of minor transgressions stretching across his teenage years to the present, the 27 year old fled the city in a stolen car. His escape was clean, for the most part, with the police dealing with the outbreak, but he knows that eventually his past will catch up with him.

    Everything else is up to you, Blades.

  • Okay we have a good amount of people now. I will start the story on a new thread. (The link will be posted above.)

    I apologize if I am not as good a writer, especially against the genius minds of Harpa, and Clayton, but I hope I don't disappoint, and that you guys are satisfied :). I am still accepting characters, but for now the people who have entered so far will be the starting people (sorry if your not in the first post.)

    Name: Lenny

    Personality: A likable, but nevertheless flawed man, Lenny acts as the de-facto leader of the group he's currently in and is a sharp, hard-working person who likes to take action and make things happen.

    Backstory: Before the outbreak started, Lenny was a commercial hunter from Nevada. While hunting, he commercially shot deer and wild boars. He met his wife, Katharina, after shoting a sick deer and needed it to be patched up, taking it to her veterinarian office. She and their son, Lenny Jr. aka " Luck ", are his main priorities. He originally had a pet cat, but had to "put her down". He and his family were returning from Memphis, Tennessee after visiting Katharina's brother when the outbreak started.

    Name: Deceptio

    Personality: Nice, caring, comforting, tough, stealthy, rarely gets angry, will fight back if purposely hit.

    Backstory: I was at my friends house for the weekend, and it was raining the entire weekend, so we had to stay in the house. When my friend's mom drove me home, there were walkers all around in my neighborhood. My friend's mom for eaten, and I rushed home and my family were dead. Distraught and filled with anger and sadness, I grabbed as much food/water as possible and a french knife along with me to search for other survivors. (I'm still new to the whole scenario, so I don't know that people come back no matter what unless brain is destroyed, or that you must inflict damage on a walker's head to kill them, etc.)

    Setting: Medium sized neighborhood, very woody and is literally pitch black at night. Lots and lots of trees, not really bright and "open" as other neighborhoods.

    I would like my story to begin at my house, then leaving and exploring my neighborhood, and then the towny area.

    Now that you mention it, it suddenly occurred to me, that there are a few commonalities between this two characters.

    In all seriousness though, that definitely wasn't my intention!
