Hi, and welcome to the Undead World RPG, which I am making due to a request.
Here's what's happening:
Today is December 20th, 2011. Everyone is celebrating; and not only because of the holiday season and the childrens' Christmas joy is soon to come. Today, the celebrated German scientist Albrecht von Lichtenstein, Ph.D, has created a theoretical cure for death, called Corpus Suscitatio Iterum Serum, or CSIS for short. All medical professionals and tests indicate that CSIS should work, but it has not been tested yet. Why? Because of the ethnic uproar it has caused; a major debate between man and friend, country and country, religion and religion. All of this chaos has thus far prevented the testing of the serum. According to Dr. von Lichtenstein, CSIS works by reenervating the nerve centers and giving the body a shock of sorts, much like a defibrillator, but for the fact that as opposed to an electrical shock, it is chemical in nature. Consisting of substances such as cocaine and consolidated caffeine, a shot of CSIS would actually be quite fatal for a live human.
------------------------------------------------------------
December 22nd, 2011. The U.N. finally decided to make a compromise in the case of CSIS, and allowed Dr. von Lichtenstein to, for the time being, test it on dead monkeys and show them the results, the final decision being made after that point. Dr. von Lichtenstein did so. The monkeys seemed all right, perhaps a little less functional and hyperactive due to the ingredients of CSIS, but still perfectly alive and all right. Dr. von Lichtenstein was immediately told to fly to Sweden to receive the Nobel Prize for Science, meanwhile more tests were conducted with CSIS by other scientists, this time on humans whose families had given permission. The bodies were, as promised, reanimated by CSIS, but were not fully functional. It seems that Dr. von Lichtenstein forgot to account for one thing: acute brain cell destruction caused by death. While the glucoronolactone that he had put in CSIS did repair muscular tissue and organ tissue, it did not affect the brain in such a way due to overconcentration of connective tissue. The humans brought back to life lost much of their brain cells, causing mass intelligence loss, cognitive failure, and most importantly, loss of morality. And while these zombies did not hunger for "BRAAAAIIINNNSSSS!", they were not picky about what they ate, and their diet did include human beings. They had reverted back to a much earlier stage of human evolution, much like the Neanderthals or Cromagnons. Henceforth, zombies brought back to life will be called Cromagnon zombies, because they are one of the types of zombies. As I said, the Cromagnon zombies did not in particular hunger for human flesh, but they had lost all sense of morality and cognitive thought and were instead constantly reverted to the "fight or flight" stage of human thinking, in which survival was all. The Cromagnon zombies escaped from their human testers, and began to roam and ravage the streets wantonly, unaware that their base instinct was destroying our carefully built and orderly society. But then it got worse. December 23, 2011. Somehow, the transmission sent from the scientists testing on human corpses to the U.N. was garbled and miscommunicated, and it was believed that the experiment had gone well and without a hitch. So, CSIS was cleared for use. No medical agency, not one, from any country, could have realized that glucoronolactone did not cure the brain damage caused by death. So, hundreds upon thousands upon tens of thousands of Cromagnon zombies were brought into the world, and chaos ensued. Worse than chaos. Utter destruction.
------------------------------------------------------------
December 24th, 2011. Christmas Eve. But no one is jolly or waiting for Santa Claus. The snow upon the ground has been trampled and made pink with blood. The bright, colorful lights have been carelessly torn down and shattered. Cromagnon zombies walk the streets, and while they did not actually kill many humans, they destroyed everything the humans depended on; electricity, their comfortable homes, their communication. And now the humans are in hiding, terrified and shocked by this new, unpredictable threat. They would have to rebuild their entire civilization. But worse is to come: new types of zombies. Yes, when Cromagnon zombies bit humans and it caused bleeding, the CSIS in the Cromagnon zombie's saliva got into the live human's bloodstream. Even if the human survived the zombie attack, they would later be killed by the poisons in the CSIS, and then reanimated by same. These zombies, called Live Zombies, did not suffer anywhere near the level of cell destruction the zombies that had been dead for a long time did, and so, their functioning and even their morality was much intact. Some of them were even as smart as humans. The Live zombies were a much larger and more dangerous threat than the Cromagnon zombies, being clever, but some of them actually retained much of their human characteristics and wanted to help the humans. Finally, the last type of zombie was "born" on Christmas Eve. This type of zombie was caused because the CSIS and brain destruction occurred to a different part of their brain, the one that lets us feel pain and prevents us from hurting ourselves. These zombies, called Hulk zombies, were the most dangerous. They could not feel pain, and they were much stronger and faster than regular humans, or at least, they functioned that way. You see, human muscle tissue is actually quite capable of punching through a wall or throwing a boulder, it's just that our tendons and flesh aren't made for that type of labor and would be ruined. But the part of the brain that controls that, that stops us from doing that, is destroyed in Hulk zombies, and so, they can indeed punch through a wall with impunity. However, thank God, they are still made out of the same things we are, and Hulk zombies eventually just die because of the labor they put their body through, unawares.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Finally, after (hopefully) reading that veritable wall of text(for an RPG, that is to say), are you ready to play? Here is the character sheet. I hope you like reading, because you're going to be doing a lot more of it.
