Quick F.A.Q

Q) At what point in time does this roleplay start in?
A:
When the event starts, there will have been a couple weeks of rioting and news reports of vicious attacks and a strange sickness. It's known that hospitals are bogged down and overloaded and that there are triage units set up across the city. To clarify, the year is 2002.

Q) Do we know that there are zombies?
A:
When we start, this news bulletin - (
) will have just been aired, so people are aware that there is something more sinister going on than just some illness.

Q) How is everyday life affected?
A:
The roleplay is taking place on the very, very edge of the city and as such the area has been spared much of the rioting, but there will be signs and indications that the rioting is getting closer to the area every day. There are also checkpoints cutting off the tunnels that grant entry to city block, as well checkpoints covering the tunnels leading out to the suburbs. Travel is strained but everyday life goes on, for now.

Q) How numerous are firearms? Can we ask for some?
A:
There will be firearms but for the purposes of a slow build up they will not be easily available. Must be a state with strict gun laws.

Q): Why are there no vehicles on the road?
A:
No private transport is allowed within the confines of the city block, the only vehicles on the road will be state owned or government/military. Yes, this is a bit handwavy but better this than the hysterical sight of many people trying to drive in gmod.

Q): If I'm chosen as a civilian, what do I do?
A:
It will be up to you to designate your own job/backstory for your character. There are many areas around the map to set up in and work a trade or business, you can feel free to use them. Try to keep it simple with professions. No weird spec ops stuff or anything of that nature. You're just normal people responding to an abnormal situation.

Q): Are we aware that Zombies are a real thing? Do pretend not to know what zombies are?
A: Zombies are obviously a known thing in the 'universe' that we'll be roleplaying in, and movies such as Romero's 'Of The Dead' series popularizing them exist IC, but for the sake of capturing the general atmosphere and panic of the everyday man, don't get carried away with yelling "ZOMBIES ARE REAL!" over and over again, but also we don't expect you to sit there yelling "Sir are you ok?" as a zombie eats someone.

Q): Can we play child characters?
A:
No

Q): Content pack?
A:

Now, on to the next part. I want everyone participating to understand that there is not a customized, tailored roleplay script for what we're doing. It's a hatchet job of addons that don't really play very well together, or with CC, so there will be some bugs and some issues. Tanknut and Hoplite have helped minimize them as best they can, but a couple things may pop up during the event that bug or glitch out. We'll do our best to handle them as they arise so as they don't disturb the flow of the event too much.

Clarified a question about whether or not people would know about zombie pop culture.

With part 2 coming up what is known about the virus now? Can amputation immediately after a bite stop someone from turning? And are there going to be any set 'roles' o be applied for so to speak (with respect to positions in the town ie national guardsmen, managememt) or are we taking it all in stride.
