Righto, this is a zombie-apocalypse setting RP and it's open for everyone.

The situation takes place in England, the day after the outbreak, 22.12.2012.
 "Think Carla is coming to the party tonight?" asked Johnny, innocently, without letting his tone betray the importance of the question. The question he had wanted to ask since he received the invitation.
"Probably, Daisy said she's not coming alone, so I 'pose she's taking Carla with her." responded Raynold with his common, calm tone.
Doing the best to hide his joy from his friend, Johnny simply nodded in approval.
He was just about to light another fag, when he heard it.
"Bloody hell! What the fuck was that?!" he yelled, the box of fags dropped along with the lighter.
"S-sounded like something exploded." stuttered Raynold, his calm tone but a memory.
"THERE! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?!?" shouted Johnny, pointing at a group of people running down the street, hysterically yelling and crying.
The sudden blam, as the door was shut, forced the men to turn around.
"It's bad. Really bad." said Jim, shaking. Johnny had always respected Jim for his excellent posture and tall height, but right now, it seemed the poor man was smaller than him.
"What do you mean it's bad? And why do you look like you just shit your pants?"
"Those, those, CREATURES! I saw 'em eat him. I swear to the motherfucking God I saw them eat a man alive. I-i-i I don't know who or what those... people are..." without finishing his sentence, Jim collapsed in front of the doorway, blocking it with his body.
  - The narration has nothing to do with the IC story. Random flashback. -

Joining
To sign up, simply post a brief overview of your character, along with the first name. No long appearance description is needed, you can describe your character at will once the game is open.

You can create multiple characters, since people in zombie apocalypses tend to die. It simply is boring without fresh blood.

Everyone is free to join at whatever time they want.

Any questions? Ask away.

One day some survivors arrived, desperately in need of help, adn were let in by Dan and his wife Evellyn. The men turned out to be robbers and tied Dan while they raped and brutally murdered his wife, only to be killed by zombies who had broken throguh through the gates, left unlocked when the robbers assaulted him.

He later returned to his house and scrambled what resources he could find, but the horrifying scene still haunts his dreams.

He also has a large backpack with 3 clean 2l water containers and some old bread. He carries basic equipment to cook and make a small camp too.

I might join in too. But couple questions.
What kind of zombies? Walking dead, dawn of the dead, resident evil, left 4 dead?
Aka are they really dead, slow, dumb creatures that are more dangerous in groups and on surprising situations. Or dawn of the dead like, agile, fast and smart dead zombies (dead zombies = headhit required).
Or l4d/28 days/weeks later, fast and smart, living infected (no hs required)

Also, infection only through bites, or scratches too. How long after infection before mutation?

Lastly, do people killed by say heart attack turn?

I will probably come up with more questions, but these for starters

Walking Dead zombies, slow, dumb, but can mass up to herds because of stupidity and infections through bites and scratches.

Edit - Max turning time is one day, shortest is a couple minutes.

Good, good. Never liked the fast bastards.

But do people who die by other means turn? Is suicide an escape?

Mk. Do we concentrate on some 'specific spots, or are we going global with spreading our characters. I assume the infection is global by now somehow

The story begins just ONE day after the outbreak. The events take place only in UK.

Roran, you do realise the event begins 1 day after the outbreak? There's literally no way he could've gone through all of that in less than a day. Most of UK is still uninfected.

I would like to give it a try, if you donĀ“t mind. Though, I would like you to give more informations about the way this game is going to be played. Do we all just post something, evolving the story further and further? Or will you organize it? For that part, I would like to stay in a minor role, probably. Please have appreciation if my posts are not perfect, this is my first try for an english RP, and I am only used to write stories in german.

 
Name: Johann Lorenz
Age: 39
Sex: Male
Appearance: Johann is a tall man marked from working in the agency most of his time. He is not very muscular, but persistent when it comes to walking great distances.
Spoiler (Click to Show)
Personality: Johann Lorenz is a quite smart and intelligent man who is used to give orders from his job, where he had the control over dozen of employees. He acts calculating and not from intuition, though he is often the first one to take over responsibility if a leader is needed. Johann can be really resentful and is not quick to trust people.
History: When the apocalypse came he was having a vacation in Noth England, finally relaxing after months of hard work. Johann was a sucessfull administrative authority in the big german weapon factory "Rheinmetall Industrie AG", where he controlled the export of high technology weapons in Frankfurt.
On the 21. December, Johann Lorenz - not believing the stories about the coming apocalypse - was wallking through the enligsh moor. Reaching a lookout point, he realized something was wrong in the city near his holiday house, so he sneaked back into his house where he had first contact with zombies, put everything useful he could find in his bag - among a big knife and field glasses also a little hand gun - and fled out of the city with his Mercedes Benz car.
Skills: Johann is a experienced leader and a smart analyst.
From working in the company, Johann has a good knowledge about several types of weapons, being able to repair them. He likes to hunt in his freetime and his a decent marksmen.
He is a good walker and a decent driver.
Tools: Mister Lorenz carries a big hunting knife and a little hand gun. He also owns field glasses. In his bag, he had always carried dressing material, and so he does now.
He is driving a big black car from the brand Mercedes.

(Hope the car thing is ok?)

Hmm... Are you sure you didn't sneakily edit the place in the prologue? I don't remember it saying it happens in England when I first read it
 Why wouldn't cars work. That is, until it gets stuck on traffic of abandoned cars, breaks or runs out of fuel. Or you plain have to leave it for reason or another (thieves, horde, etc.)

The first post hasn't been edited.

Edit - I'm going to write a narrative every week (let's say every Monday), in which something happens (the first narrative brings everyone together and then continues from there). It's all up to the characters after that. We'll have to make decisions, work as a group and most importantly - survive.
And yes, people do die, whether you want it or not.

Why do I have the feeling that Jock will let my Johann be brutally killed by Zombies now?

I'm being completely neutral and won't make character kills a regular thing. That's also why I recommend to create multiple ones and not provide that much information about them. Read Walking Dead comics if you want to get a more clear overview at what I'm trying to create here.

We can create the new characters later on? I don't want to multitask with 3 or so different characters at the same time

Didn't I say we DON'T need that much information?

In fact, everything besides the first name is voluntary.
