Typing dead - A forum user story (submit your characters here, link to story inside!)

edited May 2014 in Forum Games
Similar to the likes of Leetheprofessional and Raging_Blades, I am making a forum users story! All you do is write a character (I'll put a template below), and I'll post a story with your character inside! You also get to vote on certain actions, and just generally give me advice and be involved in the story! As an aspiring writer, I love doing these, and the more characters the better, so I'm not putting a cap on the max # of characters, there can be as many as possible! To be fair if you join late, then you probably will be put in late in the story, so if you want to, join!



telltalegames(.)com/community/discussion/70787/typing-dead-a-walking-dead-forum-story-



Link to the story above, just remove the brackets around the .



TEMPLATE



Oh boy, here I go


NAME: Just a name. A real name, middle name, username, a name you like, it doesn't matter, as long as it's not offensive (for example: Chrisbot536 is fine, Assface is not) Self-explanatory, really


LOCATION: Where we find your character (On a farm? In a garage? On the road?) he/she WILL NOT stay there forever, it's just where they start.


APPEARANCE: What they look like (Tall? Short? Fat? Thin? Blonde? Brunette? Ugly? Ravishing?) again, self-explanatory.


BACKSTORY: What they were like before the apocolypse, their story before the events of this (runaway serial killer? angry soccer mom?) and their current personality and state (State just means are they alone, in a small (2-5 people) or big (6-10, no bigger than 10) group).



This is more fun with a huge crowd of people voting, and submitting characters, so even if you think "I'm no good at making characters", just try, I'll try to make this as fun as I can for all of you!

    NAME: James

    LOCATION: A quaint little pizza shop, just outside of Atlanta.

    APPEARANCE: James is tall, bulky, and kinda pale for his build. He has thick black hair that probably ought to be kept shorter, and is 17.

    BACKSTORY/PERSONALITY: James goes to the local high school in his area. He excels in biology and theater, giving him a good bit of knowledge about the human body and the ability to put on a good show (what I mean is, he can lie damned well). He isn't all too close to his family, but he has a boyfriend named Chase and a couple of close friends a few miles out. He's always quick to get defensive of those close to him, and perhaps can get a little violent if somebody he loves is threatened. But, besides that, he is able to keep a level head and does his best to keep things cool.

  • Name: Susanne

    Location: Her house's garage

    Appearance: Mid 40s, shortish brown hair, curvy

    Backstory: Typical suburban mum before outbreak. Was hiding out in her house with her wife, but her wife got bitten on a supply run and she had to put her down in the garage, immediately after which we find her.

    Her two sons were on a camping trip during the apocalypse, and one of her key aims after her wife died is to find them alive.

    Personality: Cares a lot about people, used to talk up and make decisions all the time before she had to stop her spouse from turning. Over time, she gradually becomes assertive and self-confident again, getting over her loss, and becomes very focused and driven on finding her kids. Not skilled with gun, but reasonably strong with a golf club she carries with her.
