The Great Panic- A Zombie Apocalypse

I decided to make a forum RPG based on two popular zombie books, called "The Zombie Survival Guide" and "World War Z", written by Max Brooks and Three Rivers Press. This is a game that has the players telling about what they do each day in a Class 4 outbreak, or a world overrun by the zombie-creating virus Solanum, and already created zombies. You would give information on your "avatar"(character you play as) and then say where you would live and what your weapons are. You can team up with other players and make a colony, or be a loner, but either way, your choices effect what happens in your zombie-infested world.

You do not need to know about the the books this is based on, you just need to like RPG's, forum games, or zombies.


1. You control your choices and your character, but I control the zombies.
2. Your character must be an average human being. No futuristic items. No amazing abilities. No half-zombie crossbreeds.
3. You may have previous training with weapons, or military experience. You may also be in the military, but you may not have access to experimental weapons.

4. The game world is my world, and under my control, you just play in it.

Side Note: Only destrying the brain kills a zombie.

Note: Small= 6 inch - 2 feet, Mid-sized= 2-4 feet, Large/Long= 5 feet+


(You may start with: 2 melee weapons; 1 firearm (gun); and either an explosive or fire source.)

I hope you moderators and such notice the **** are just the term for a mix of things, and in this case, an explosive.

Very original idea, but good luck figuring out how to work, you lost me in that whole entire description, because it was so well though out.

Very well written, but I'm not sure I understand the process. Could you give me the general meaning first?

It's simple. You play as a human left alive in a zombie-infested world. You say what weapons you have of of the list, and other phyical attributes, and what you have as your camp, what deffences it has, and where you would be. Then, you make whatever choices you want, and I chose what the outcome is. It takes a bit of wisdom and brain power, but I know if you try, you can succeed. Please give it a try.

Then you state the location of your camp, then you create your character. Then you tell me when your ready.

I am in the middle of reading these books! Too funny!

So, do you pick weapons and then what?

I will take a Shaolin Spade ( I remember how good they are against zombies in the book). A mid-sized rifle.

Flint and steel. Molotov ****tails.

I would like to set up in a concreted fort. The gates needs to manual. What all can be surrounding the fort?

Also, I'd like a dirt bike as transportation.

My character has some previous military training in firearms and leadership.

And her head is shaved. ZOMBIES AREN"T GONNA GRAB MY HAIR!
