To help Character Sheets: The RP will start in Couilly-Pont-aux-Dames, Île-de-France and will head east along the A4.



This RP draws inspiration from STALKER, Fallout, Metro 2033, Children of Men, DayZ, and history. It aims to bring the Black Death and feudalism into the modern world.

I'm in. I could pretty much use my healer/witch character from Ulfs RP thing that never started for this.

Jhessail is far from friendly. :P She's extremely intelligent, amicable, and witty, but friendly's the last word I'd use to describe her.

Hmmm, I assume from the name and the pics in the OP we'll most likely start off in Paris. Any restrictions you want on nationality of characters? I'd rather not play a Frenchman. :P

There are no restrictions on nationalities :D Although, don't expect Arabic, Asian or African characters to be particularly well received by some segments of society.

OP updated

Wouldn't expect any less from Paris. Can't imagine the current situation would improve their already wild-flaring racism. :P

I have questions.

Is there any source info /or what kinda of feel are we looking at?

For character origins, what kind of interactions do we have going cross the pond/pac? 50 years of no upkeep means we could lose most of the sat network, but we could just as easily retain most of it. Ofc, we could easily write everything more complicated then a 60's computer off.

Is the Mors plague actively ravaging most of the world or just the local sector? Does the virus survive long enough on surfaces to be transmitted by contact?

Do you need players? Or are we looking for a smaller starting group?

France is ok. Those FFL dudes are really tough.

They also have standards now, so less recruits with extensive criminal records and more trained soldiers from other countries (poaching your special forces, yo!!!) or qualified people.

Sounds interesting, but I'd like to know a bit more about what society and the general setting context looks like before making any kind of commitment. Is it feudal now? 
We could not understand because we were too far and could not remember because we were traveling in the night of first ages, of those ages that are gone, leaving hardly a sign - and no memories. We are accustomed to look upon the shackled form of a conquered monster, but there - there you could look at a thing monstrous and free.

It isn't an adventure story, is it Mr. Hayes?
