If you've got the room I'd be happy to join! I've been jonesing for a good low-fantasy apocalypse story and this sounds really promising

Alright, so to clear up a few questions!

The RP is set in the modern era, with a very realistic slant. Humans only, I'm sorry to say. It's our world but magic has burst forth to ruin things. Characters won't exactly have abilities, but magic will certainly be a thing. However, it won't really be fireballs and thunderbolts. Magic will be ritualized and slow, involving incense, candles, etc. Some characters may be drawn to certain classes of magic, such as necromancy, summoning of spirits, ect. But the setting is fairly low fantasy. If you want to summon a spirit or raise the dead, be prepared to spend several hours chanting or moving around colored candles.

I hope that clears some things up guys. Sorry it took so long to reply!
This kind of low fantasy is something I've been wanting to do for a good while. Having to work and experiment for your magic, and the forces and their effects being mysterious, adds a certain excitement to magic. whipping out a firebolt is cool, but it spoils several other ways magic can be expressed in a story.

Are we putting CS here? In a different thread? Or should I PM it to you?
You can toss them up here, and then we'll get started once they're approved.

Sounds interesting.
What kind of expectations are you going to have for the RPers?
I would like for everyone to try to post at least once a day, and maintain a posting order that we'll all decide on. We can also decide, as a group, to determine how many days of absence before we just move on from someone. (I will try to make it open ended so the person can come back at a later time, if they wish.) I would like at least a decent paragraph, with proper grammar and punctuation. As for the character sheets themselves, just make sure to include a birthday/star sign because it will affect magic. I'm also not expecting your character's entire life story to be revealed right of the back; I expect to explore and discover them as we play. I hope this gives you an idea!

So sorry guys, I didn't get any alerts that anyone said something!

It is a free format, with only the zodiac sign being a necessity.

Unfortunately, the zombies is this world are caused by a curse, so you couldn't be part of the group. You could be a human child if you wanted!

Also everyone, I posted this to another person but to make it easer to find:

Corrie Arc

deiby9k-111963c4-3231-4849-8fb6-bf1933f310a8.jpg

♒ Aquarius ♒

~ Age 26, from Florida
~ Pre-op transitioned Woman
~ 5' 9" (175cm) and 165lbs (75kg)
~ Skills: Research | Western Wrestling | Macgyvering (improvised technology) | Hand crafts | Jumping to Conclusions
~ Weaknesses: Terrible at picking up on social cues | Mild androphobia | Tends to get absorbed and lose track of time and their surroundings | Easily distracted | Stubborn | Terrible Listener
~ Loves: Being Right | Attention | Egregiously Fabulous Fashion and Aesthetics | Cute Things |Magic | Learning | Experimenting | Talking | Trying New Things
~ Hates: Being Interrupted | Being asked to conform to anything | Waiting | Wearing anything uncomfortable, unless it's fabulous | Bell Peppers
~ Attire: Corrie loves wearing outfits that would only be appropriate in cosplay, or on stage. Her outfit at the beginning of the story is a Roman inspired purple blouse, form fitting Rock Revival jeans, an extravagant tiara she claims works as a spell focus, and a pair of fake velvet fox ears.
~ Behavior: Even before the dead began to rise, Corrie has been interested in, if not obsessed with, magic. She studied all things occult, came up a few theories, and ran numerous experiments. Most of her life has been focused not only on proving that magic is real, but trying to uncover the secrets behind how it works. Unfortunately, her conclusions and notes are about as fictional as a Harry Potter novel.
Even now, she studies every phenomenon with great interest, taking careful notes, and experimenting where she can. She continues to piece together every clue she gets her hands on and compiles them into a slowly forming story to explain everything. The story makes a lot of sense if one has the patience to listen to hours of explanation, though, it has nothing to do with reality.
Corrie is otherwise very curious, energetic, and inventive, often to a fault. She is also always making an effort to stand out, like being "boring," as she sees it, is a fate worse than death.
~ Other Facts: Corrie is an Engineering School drop-out | Corrie was born male, and has since gone through HRT and surgery, though she had yet to go through the final surgery at the time of the apocalypse | Drives a Kawasaki Crotch Rocket | Corrie made it to State competition in high school wrestling | Her main occupation up until the apocalypses was Psychic Reading | Corrie suffers from PTSD from a childhood of abuse, though she mostly keeps this hidden.

He‘s a creative boy who gets inspired by stories he‘s heard and makes traps for people and animals and other things.

If you guys are cool with it, I'll set up a forum to rp in, and we'll get started. The post order would be me, koeseki, nagabe, then flooded. It's a zombie rp, so there will be absolutely no problem happening upon new people in game to join us. I'll alert you all when it's up!

Is there any shared backstory anyone wants to set up, or do we all prefer to be strangers at the beginning?

I'm really going to have to flesh out Corrie's character and personality a bit in story. Re-reading over the bio, she's literally just an Aquarius caricature at the moment.

I'm going to pick a random city, and it'll be on the brink with an approaching horde. You guys are free to create stories in which you know each other, or we can just run into each other as we're fleeing the city. I personally am just going to have my character be thrown to the wind pretty much.

And that's perfectly okay! I like characters who just develop through the story!
