OOC-Chapter 1-The Beginning of the End-General Discussion

A group of strangers at a highway truck stop must cooperate to survive as the world becomes overwhelmed with legions of the living dead. But more terror awaits them as they race to prevent the end of mankind and the coming of the Zombie Apocalypse. (This is a Blood Brothers Campaign based on Call of Cthulhu Rules and the films of George Romero).

You're welcome. I'm back now, but I'm still catching up and don't have time to update tonight. Tomorrow night doesn't look good either, but hopefully Wednesday night will work. In the meantime, anyone who hasn't posted yet for one or more of their characters should do so. You are also free to post more than once between major updates for your characters, so you can hold IC conversations with each other. Just keep in mind that you shouldn't try to do too much stuff between major updates.

I've added combat rules to the Rules and Guidelines thread, just in case it comes up for certain characters.

Several players did not post since my previous update on Wednesday, but I needed to update earlier anyway. Please make sure you post for all of your characters between major updates. If your character(s) does get involved in combat, please try to post more frequently.

I've added more posts to the Rules and Guidelines thread, similar to the ones from the old version of the game.

I'll post updates for my characters this evening.
I wasn't sure what to do, as I preferred not to put all three into the same thread, but if Baldwin needs to check his truck, Old Bud might as well visit the diner. :)

Thanks for the heads up the other day, Raiko. Post moved to the proper thread. 8-)

It's fine if they're all in that thread for now. It's a big area, and they're not all going to be in the same part of it. Baldwin's truck is at the garage, so he'll probably be moving to a new thread soon anyway.

So is it acceptable for us to know about zombies and start talking like they are zombies from popular fiction/movies come to reality?

In the last run of the game, characters did start doing that once they found out the hard way. I know that in All Flesh Must Be Eaten's War of the Dead, it is presumed to be an alternate history where George Romero's movies and everything derived from them never happened, but I think it's all right if we just use the real world instead. There are zombie movies, games, and so on, but everyone knows zombies aren't real...until you discover for yourself that they are. I'll leave it up to you when you think that a particular character of yours has seen enough to make the connection. Right now, to most people this seems like some sort of disease or something.

Okay.
I was just thinking that watching a zombie literally claw their way out of the ground is just so stereotypical zombie that you can't help but make a connection.

Yes, I think that would do it. ;) I just don't want to spoil anything for any players whose characters have not yet witnessed something.

I was at a convention over the weekend, and I didn't have enough time to update after getting back from it. I hope I'll have enough time tomorrow night. In the meantime, those of you who haven't posted for one or more of your characters have a little more time to finish.

I had to use a stern warning. I don't want the spoilers to eat you. ;)

I'll post for all my characters in a few hours at work.

Sorry my weekend was taken up by our baby being a bit poorly.

That's okay, and I hope your baby feels better.

I've been sick myself for the past few days anyway. I probably won't have time to update tonight. I might be able to do it tomorrow if I'm too sick to go to work but not too sick to update, but otherwise it will have to wait at least another day.

Everyone's okay again in the Raiko household. :)

Sorry if I'm holding things up, I had posts planned for this yesterday, but was too busy to write them.
I'll have some time for posts this evening, so I'll update all my characters here first.

I'm glad everyone's doing better. :)

Don't worry, you didn't hold up anything. I wasn't able to update anyway, as I've been sick and at a convention, and you weren't the only player who didn't post. I'll try to update tomorrow.

I've made an addition to the rules. Any critical hit (not merely an impale) on a zombie will automatically hit it in the head without having to roll for a hit location. A critical hit on a called shot on a zombie's head will do additional damage.

I'm not going to have time to update tonight, but I hope I will tomorrow night. This will give anyone who hasn't posted yet one more chance to do so.
