Humanity on Earth went out with a whimper, not a bang. The whispered remnants of a tattered species are scattered across seven continents, surrounded by the ruins of everything they knew. The virus swept away millions, billions of people, the ones who hadn't listened to the frantic almost-two-seconds-too-late warnings on the tv to [i]stay indoors and don't leave until the okay is given[/i] but by the second week the okay was never given because the scientists and announcers were [i]dead and gone[/i].And so the people left.And in the remains of the once-proud United States, in the shell of Los Angeles, with towering, decrepit apartment buildings looming over the empty streets as a testament to the people who once lived there...A signal goes out.[i]"Hello? Hello? Is this thing working? Hello?""Stop saying that. It's working, just go.""Ah, yes, hi! This is a message for any survivors who live in the-on the continent of-in what's left of the good ol' United States! If you are in need of shelter, please try to head to LA! We're in the Costco on-What was it? South Palm and Commonwealth! Next to Target! Huge solar panels on top! You can't miss it! Bring whatever you have! We'll need it!""You sound dumb, gimme the mic.""Fine.""This is a message to all survivors. If you are in the area, please find the Costco on South Palm and Commonwealth. We are near a Target, Home Depot, and Toys R Us. I repeat. If you are in the area..."[/i]
- This is NOT sci-fi, please stay as realistic as you can with a roleplay taking place in a post apocalypse caused by a mystery virus and-just keep away from the holograms and glowy swords okay (fake ones would be hilarious though)
- No godmodding.
- Keep it PG-13 at the most, fade-to-blacks are always appreciated.
- Swearing should be kept at a minimum.
- Please try to include others and involve people so nobody feels left out!
- Decent grammar and spelling is always appreciated!
This takes place weeks after a devastating virus wiped out most of the world's population, leaving behind a couple million or so survivors spread across all 7 continents. In Los Angeles, a small group of survivors have set up a home in an abandoned Costco and the buildings surrounding it. (Yes, you can actually go find the Costco in question, you can find it on Google maps if you search "costcos in la".)
