No assurance needed, because it doesn't matter one bit.

I am ready to see where Ignot is going to be taking this. Excitement coming our way, methinks.

Wasn't the distance to the apartment one and a half hour by foot?

I'm writing my next post right now. Though it will be open ended and saved on my computer until it is decided what is to be done with Daniel.

There's always room for applications, but it's Sarge's call in the end. You need only to post your character sheet using the template/ideas that Sarge used on page 1 of this thread.

Is it possible to get a short synopsis of the story so far? So I can make sure the backstory fits into the situation and maybe weave in a few events.

I can probably speak for Sarge here. You won't be part of the "main" crew. So you won't be "weaving in stories".  Undecided
So here are some the details you may need:
It is in Philadelphia; it is around 10 months into the apocalypse; it is winter.
There is a fun little Wiki that can explain some of the things that have happened.
Looking forward to see your character sheet.

Thanks. (Edit) Here is my attempt at a character. Could anyone give it a look over and make sure I haven't messed up? I know the background could do with more work. I'm aware some of the personality stuff probably won't come up but I like to flesh characters out, it'll probably come up sooner or later. I hope I judged the 'feel' of the game right.



Name:  Jack Ferdinand
Nickname : Duke, Franz or just Ferdinand
Age: 19
Height: 5'11
Weight: 66kg
Eye Colour: Brown
Hair Colour: Dark Brown
Pre-infestation profession: Psychology Student (University)
Personal skills: Basic survival skills, Musical (Write, Play Guitar)

Jobs in the apartment: (Unsure.. Ideas?)
Physical appearance: Long brown hair frames a face that always seems to be tired, with brown eyes and an unshaven beard. The hair was held away from his eyes with a piece of black cloth tied around from his forehead. Each side hung over his chest unless tied back, something which he preferred not to do. He wears a black T shirt with a 'Muse' logo over part of the chest. Jack wears a pair of loose dark, faded jeans scuffed at the ankles.

Underneath his clothes he's pretty thin, though the loose attire hides it somewhat. He isn't particularly muscled or toned. The inside of each arm bears tattoos with the names of the rest of his band. Jill, Miles and Nicola. They're each accompanied by a scar, he tries to keep these hidden though such an attempt would be ultimately futile. His messenger bag usually hands at his hip in the right and contains his belongings apart from the SAA which has a holster on his other hip. He wears a pair of dirtied white converse shoes.

Gear:
-Small: A dozen painkillers, 18 .45 rounds, Matchbox, An unopened guitar string in it's wrapper.
-Medium: Colt Single Action Army,  35cl Bottle of Vodka.
-Large: Leather messenger bag, Pickaxe

Personality: A sarcastic smart ass with a dark humour, Jack will always try to crack jokes when nervous or in a tense situation. This has led to him having more than his fair share of slaps due to an apparent inability to avoid making jokes of the few potential girlfriends he had. It does make him a  somewhat funny person to be around though.  He over-thinks things a lot and second guesses himself. This in addition to indecisiveness means he's not the best person to ask to devise a plan. Jack does seem to enjoy 'troubleshooting,' finding solutions to problems.

He also has an urge to sing whenever listening to his favourite songs or scything through zombies (He has learnt to control this somewhat). Luckily for others his MP3 player ran out of power months ago, unluckily he knows most of the lyrics off by heart. In truth, the singing helps distract him from what he's actually doing,  Essentially mutilating the corpses of the once living. Music also seems cloesly tied to his emotions, watching a sad scene in a film would do nothing to him but a sad tune will always illicit a response. Jack has an odd sense of pride, he'll refuse food, preferring to cook anything he eats himself. And would be more likely to give food to someone else rather than take it himself unless absolutely starving. He likes to travel light, if something can't fit in his bag then it'll be left behind for someone else. Micheal's also definately not a 'morning' person, being irritable and slow witted until the early afternoon. He found it hard to sleep ever since they left England, now it seemed more like a survival adaptation rather than the result of nerves. When Jack does sleep he tends to move around a lot and talk, though he only rarely sleepwalks. One thing he has noticed, is that without all of the light pollution of humanity's bright lights, the night sky looks amazing.


History: A native of the British Isles, Jack didn't picture finding himself in a somewhat strange, foreign country when the fall of humanity came. He'd been on a road trip across the states with the other members of his band when the troubles began. They managed to survive for a while together, but one by one they fell until only he was left.

His early life was average, school, college then university. Jack was always interested in how the human mind worked and so took a natural interest in the field of psychology. He wasn't the outgoing type but he had spent a few years as a scout. Doing the typical lighting fires and camping activities. Like many other things he eventually lost interest and quit rather than advance to the next level.

It was during the 2 college years that he found himself forming a rock band with his friends Miles (Drummer), Jill (Bassist) and Nicola (Singer). He was the lead guitarist himself, though he sung his fair share of the lyrics as well as writing most of the music. They weren't exactly successful however, they decided after a particularly disappointing gig to try their luck in the US. The group took a gap year and blew their maintenance grants on plane tickets. It was all planned out, they'd travel through a number of states, performing anywhere they could as they went. The plan was to get their music heard and to hopefully gain a following.

Even the best laid plans of drunken students are ruined by zombie apocalypses. The airports shut down and they were stranded with no contacts, knowledge of the country or any idea of how to escape. Jack managed to survive, he was surely infected but he wasn't even aware of how the virus spread. That was until he had to put a bullet through Jill's head. Seeing your friend die twice was almost too much for him. He wandered aimlessly, surviving through sheer luck more than anything else.

The 3 survivors managed to survive for a few months on an island in the middle of the Delaware river opposite Bristol. It provided some safety but they'd have to travel across to the city to scavenge for supplies, a wooden rowing boat their only method of transport across. There wasn't any true shelter but they had a source of 'fresh' water in the river. It would always be boiled but they were never sure it killed whatever traces of the virus could be in it. During one routine scavenging expedition things went horribly wrong. Jack's indecision got them into a bad situation which Miles and Nicola didn't survive. It was a turning point for him. He felt he had to move on and Jack tried to forget. It was hard to forgive yourself for causing the deaths of the only meaningful things you had left in your life.  (Please don't freak out if i've messed up on geography. I used google maps to try and find a suitable spot...)

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.

Agh!
Its hard to write the post with all the distractions(Internet in general) >.<
It always goes much faster with "motivation". When it is my turn to post.

Edit: I might be gone for a day or two.

Edit2: Not my turn yet.
But really, who is next?

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.

I was kind of hoping Firesolved would pop back in, but it doesn't look like that's the case, so I'll just continue from my side. Not today, though. I'll probably put something up sometime next week. Busy until then.  Undecided
