All three of the apartment dwellers were looking at Ignot. Suspicion, fear, even a little loathing were factored into their gazes, all which Ignot simply passed over. The tension between the groups was palpable as Ignot simply stared at the others. Liam and Alex both looked between the groups, but said nothing. The whole room seemed to stretch into a piano wire that was coiled up so tight that it could snap at any second.

A simple sigh escaped from Frank’s lips. Ignot turned to look at the burly man and watched as his ran a hand through his hair defeated. Frank’s eyes traveled up to meet Ignot’s sunglasses and a subtle flare of rage flared up.

“You break down our door,” Frank began calmly, his voice soft and tired. “Then you charge in, pointing guns at us. You get us down, search us, and then point a few harsh words toward us. I’m about ready to punch a wall in frustration, God knows the little one is scared, and if this one wasn’t Christian, I’m sure you’d be on fire from the sheer words that would come out of her mouth.” Frank paused and looked out the window next to them.

“However, “ He said, sighing once more, “This is no home. This wasn’t even a shelter. We’re cold, hungry, and lost. I’d be stupid not to take you up on solid shelter.” Frank looked back at Ignot, tense and angry.

“But don’t, for one second, think that you earned our loyalty or our gratitude. First impressions hit the hardest, and buddy, I don’t like you. I don’t like your attitude, I don’t like your scarier-than-thou getup, and I hate your manner of speaking.” Frank was still seething, but managed to keep his anger in check.

“But we will come with you.” He said finally. Ignot nodded.

“Good decision. Now, grab a bag and help us scavenge quickly. Darkness is coming soon, and it will only get colder. Look for some winter clothes too. 515 and 403 had coats.” Ignot said, spinning around on his heel and walking toward the door.

“That goes for everyone. Wrap it up, work your way down and grab whatever you had marked for salvage. Frank and Bethany, you can go with Liam and Alex to salvage. Lets move.” Ignot walked out the door, shouldering a larger bag before disappearing. Bethany soothed Anthony’s head and shook hers.

“He is a frightening individual. Is he always that…brusque?” Bethany said, mostly to herself. Alex got a half-smirk on her face and patted Beth on the back.

“You really have no idea.”

3 hours later

“Come on Billie, stop pacing.” Kai said, motioning toward a couch. “You know how Ignot is. He is thorough and efficient to a fault. He’s on his way home now, leading the rest of them.” Kai was leaning back in one of the recliners, unfortunately it was broken and only stayed in the reclined position. But no one really minded it. Billie, however, was pacing back and forth on the floor in front of the couch, hands constantly moving, eyes never really focusing.

“But one of them could have gotten frostbite, which slows progress and is painful in the first stages…or hurt themselves on rubble…and don’t even get me started on zombies…” She said, suddenly stopping and looking toward the window. It was quiet for a few seconds as she stared out the window. Snow had started to fall in mounds after they had gotten back and at some points it was so windy that it seemed to be going sideways.

“Did you hear that?” Billie asked to Kai, who was stirring his rapidly cooling hot coco.

“Hear what?” Kai asked, stopping all movement, his eyes focused on Billie’s movements. But then Kai heard it. Creaking. From the Fire escape.

“Oh thank god…” Billie said, trotting over to the window and looking out. She sighed out loud when she saw a few figures trudging back on the street. And as soon as she sighed, she nearly screamed as Ignot’s face popped into full view, taking her completely by surprise. She took a few seconds, hands clutched  to her chest, before walked forward and unlocking the window. He nodded to her and patted her on the shoulder as he dropped the bag he had on his shoulders with a resounding ‘thunk’.

Billie and Ignot helped everyone inside and resting before Ignot finally took off his scarf and beanie and walked into the kitchen. He stopped and pasued at the doorway, before looking over his shoulder at the frozen and exhausted group. Kai was already passing out hot coco and small snacks to the group, helping people out of coats and talking to the newcomers.

“Welcome home.”

Okay, i have waited long enough. As GM, i am going to do some major character controlling to get everyone out and back to the apartments. This is a little ridiculous as i have given far enough time to get back to the forums and post. So no whining.

It's supposed to be the three in the apartment. You guys can post about going back to the apartment though. When a thread breaks into two separate story threads, it is easy to post about your situation without interrupting the flow of the others. So go ahead. We need a little activity.

Ignot figured that the with both Leeland and Billie reacting to Daniel and Kenneth, the last thing they needed was a pulled weapon. He glanced down to see the pistol he'd left unbuckled already halfway out of it's holster, his finger beginning to snake it's way around the trigger for a fast shot. With much hesitation, he placed the gun back into it's holster and glanced back toward Billie, who was hefting the man up onto her shoulders and barking orders to him and the other two in attendance.

As much as Ignot knew he was intimidating, as much as he worked on it, he knew that he could never garner that much force into his words as Billie did when someone was in trouble. He unzipped his jacket under his flak vest and forced Billie to stop from walking past him. Leeland quickly shouldered Daniel as Ignot whipped the jacket onto Billie quicker than she could throw a fit about it.

"Remember your jacket, Billie. It's cold outside." He said, with the closest glimmer of humor in his voice since this whole thing began. He looked back up at her and stared for a second. Getting out of the way, he watched the trio walk past until Kenneth walked past. Shooting a hand out, he grabbed the shotgun with such force that Kenneth didn't have a chance to move it. Looking directly at him, he just stared at him. After a few tense seconds, he spoke, his voice low and calculated.

"If i find her missing, dead, or even just late back, there will be nothing in this universe that can save you from me." With that, he let go of the gun and motioned for him to catch up with the rest of the group. HE stuttered and spat, trying to gather up a response, before giving up and jogging to catch up with Billie and Leeland.

He watched them walk around the corner before walking back into the apartment and looking at everyone there.

"As much as I would like to give you all a long time to consider my proposal, we must get out of here and make it back to the apartments before nightfall. Are you three coming with us?" He asked to the group they had intruded on.

Colonel, great character. I can see him being very brooding. A perfect addition to our house 'o pity. Welcome aboard. You may have to wait a few to get back out, but i will write you in as soon as possible.

As for me, i've been giving everyone a chance to post. Expect something today now that i figured out who is all committed.

I'm probably going to wait another day before posting.
23  TZH Discussion / TZH Role Playing / Re: Those Left Behind: Silent Frost on: July 29, 2010, 10:08:49 am
Excellent viewpoint B-Chan. Exactly what i want from this RP. Gratz on hitting the point.

So far we have two separate stories. The one in the hallway and the one in the apartment. Both of which are precariously teetering on the edge of disaster. One slipped move and someone could get shot. Like right now, Ignot is probably going to draw his gun at Kenneth, mostly because that he is a stranger that is approaching their only medic. Yeah, not a good idea.

One errant twitch could get you killed, but don't meta game that. Right now, we have great players that are keeping with the realism of the story quite well. Like i said in the sign up portion, this should be treated like real life. I'll allow spectacular things, but don't expect that being an hero will do anything but get you killed.

So choose your actions carefully.

Ignot looked down at the teenager before him. She was a combination of things that he had never before seen in his life. Fear, anger, remorse, bravery, foolishness, and a whole lot of moxie in a very small, young woman. At times, she made him want to rip his non-existing hair our, other he was stunned by her courage and, more often, stupidity. He just stared at her and wished for a fleeting second that she just wasn’t so…confusing. He took a breath in was about to speak when he heard knocking.

“Is that…Funkytown?” He asked, canting his head down the hallway. Alex’s jaw hit the floor, momentarily stunned at the abrupt change of topic before listening herself.

“I think so…” She said. Ignot was going to go inside and chide whoever decided to be clever when a few things caught his attention.

"H-Hello there!" Leland said, his voice echoing down the hallway. It was a bit more stressed and higher than he normally would talk, Ignot thought. Indicative of stress and trying to get attention.

“Can we help you?” Billie asked, diplomatically. Someone is there, Ignot thought. Armed, or Billie wouldn’t have a slightly tweaked tone to her voice. She was forcing her calm exterior, fear peaked slightly through it.
Another voice, male, coasted through the hall toward them. Peaceful and curious, but just as fearful as Billie. Negotiations? No…Just wanted to make sure everything was okay. Analysis of our readiness, possible scouts for an ambush. Linked to the engines earlier? Couldn’t be, too far away for that kind of response. Minimal threat past surprise. Don’t shock them and we could get past this okay. Ignot turned and walked past Alex, patting her on the shoulder.

“We’ll continue this in a bit. We have visitors.” He walked down the hall, placing his machete back into it’s holster. He cocked both of his pistols and placed them into loose holsters, just in case he needed them. Walking around the corner between himself and the offending hallway, he immediately noticed both men in the hallway, Billie, and Leland. Luckily, no one else ventured out. Showing his hands at his sides and empty, he stopped directly next to the doorway that they had smashed open. Just in case he needed cover.

   “If you care to place down your weapons at the end of the hall, we can talk. We just wanted to make sure these survivors were not raiders before offering assistance. I would like to make that same assurance on your end. We are not raiders, nor have any intention of being so.”

   Hopefully, this could be resolved quickly, as bullets were hard to come by. Survivors too.

Sorry for the wait ladies and gentlemen. Got a good bit going on, but i should be free to post sometime in the next few days.
27  TZH Discussion / TZH Role Playing / Re: Those Left Behind: Silent Frost on: July 18, 2010, 08:14:14 am
Excellent!! Glad to see so many new faces and all the old favorites...i mean people. >.>

Got a little bit to do today, so probably gonna get a new post up tomorrow during work. If not then (can't account for how many stupid people have problems in one day), then i will sometime this week. Time to get back with the crew and it's drama.

Talk to me though, what do you guys want to see out of this. It may be my story, but you guys are part of it too. Let's make it ours!
28  TZH Discussion / TZH Role Playing / Re: Those Left Behind: Silent Frost on: July 15, 2010, 02:28:34 pm
Holy crap. Many apologize ladies and gentlemen, for my unexplained and sudden absence. I am very glad to see alot of you are still interested in this RP, and i see some new faces as well. Please, allow me to explain myself.

April 11th was my last post which was finals for that part of my semester. My school cuts semesters into 2 month chunks and we take a full course load over those two sessions, 2 sets of 8 week classes. I had just gotten done with my finals when my wife and I decided that it was time for her to move back in with me (Long story that I'd rather keep to myself), so that was a whole, 2-3 week ordeal that eat my time. Then, my housing agreement with my college swtiched owners and the owners tried to up the rent and take stuff away from us. Not only was that bad for everyone, they also banned overnight guests (aka, my wife). So something had to be done. Being part of my student government, the next month was taken up with me fighting this new owner as well as celebrating my wife's birthday. On top of classes...

To make matters worse, my college suddenly decided to let me know that I owed them 2 thousand dollars in 2 weeks, or i'd be kicked out of my housing, which my wife had JUST moved into. 2 weeks of stress, depression, and anxiety go by before a clever peice of student loan manipulation and 5 hundred dollars cured the situation.

To wrap up, these last 2 weeks have been a de-stressing period for me as i try to repress all of this from my memory and attempt to get back into writing once more.

Sorry dudes and dudettes. Finals week really kicked my ass and i am in the process of moving my wife up to my apartment. So hecticness abound. Will post soon though. :> Thanks for sticking close by guys and gals.
30  TZH Discussion / TZH Role Playing / Re: Those Left Behind: Silent Frost on: April 15, 2010, 06:35:37 am
That there is. Trust me, there will be lots of shooting to be done. Just remember that swarms of zombies are actually very dangerous. Some people start to forget that and play zombies down as simple minded creatures. The whole point of this RP is to create suspense at the situation. There are a shit ton more zombies than there are us.
