View Full Version : Zombie-escape RP!

I figured I'd bounce this idea off of you guys here. If we get a few people interested I will put some effort into developing it. I don't realy want to do a ton of work unless I know some people would like to play.

The IRC RPG will be in GUA's IRC. It'll be like a story. for example:

<Commander_Beef>The Zombies responded well to what you just did.... It approaches you with it's claws outstretched, trying to rip you apart!
<Player> I use my minigun i acquired from the base earlier and fires repeatedly at the Zombie.
<Commander_Beef> you fire your minigun at the zombie, unleashing a rain of deadly bullets. As your ammo quickly depletes, the zombie dies and drops to the floor, half of it's body gone.

The starting story line:
There has been a zombie outbreak... but no one managed to save the day, and now the infestation is quickly spreading across the entire country. In a rare burst of sanity, the federal government has responded to the zombie outbreak by repealing all laws regulating on civilian ownership and use of firearms

You have less than twenty-four hours to prepare before the undead reach your city. The roads are jammed to the point where it is absolutely impossible to flee, and worse yet the mayor is an utter idiot who is blocking all efforts to mobilize a militia force or fortify the town. On the bright side, the local gun store has expanded into a Third World-esque arms bazaar and is fully stocked with Russian and Western equipment up to and including antitank rocket launchers. Your local car dealership, likewise, has expanded its operations to include used (up to 1970s era) military vehicles up to light tanks.

The game will be played on the GUA IRC net, on #Zombies ( yes, updated. ), at GMT +08 7:00PM. What's more, i wish that most of the characters who are playing have common sense and spelling. No, I'm not saying this is an Invite-only RPG. This is for all.

we will play as long as a decent number are present. If you are not there when we play, then your character will be on leave, or in RnR or injured, ect. This will allow us to do missions without having to have everyone present, which has been the biggest problem I've had with playing IRC RPG's.

Questions, comments, interested? lemme know.

Neat idea, but i have no idea how rpg in irc work, or how to play it. Does it require some irc script?

You don't have to. The game works entirely like a MUD, and you don't have to type something like a story to play. Like i said, It will work like pen and paper RPGs. So, I'm the DM.

Most of the roleplayers who forum roleplay as opposed to mud roleplay do so becuase they see the retardedness muds. Muds are to Forum Roleplay like kiddy porn is to Real Porn. I mean, jeeze, noone vud ever mud roleplay if they were half good and knew about forums.

I edited how the gameplay would be. Maybe it'll give you a clear idea of how it's played.
