[Miniphalla] Zombie Apocalypse (Carrier/Infected VICTORY)

Brains.
Braiiins braiins brains. Brains.
Unnngh. Uuuunngh brains.
B... brains.
4 itchy tasty.

The city of Phallanston had never been a peaceful place. People always rushed down the street, it was such a bustling place. One could lay witness to thousands every day on the streets of this town, and never see the same person twice. Well, not likely anyone's going to be a passive observer around here anymore.

You see, all that bustling big city stuff? Yeah, that's what it used to be like. Now? Let's say more like Hell. That was before The Epidemic. Hah... just saying those words, it sounds so tame, passive. Almost politically correct, like we're going to offend someone, huh? Screw that crap. Ain't nothing polite about The Epidemic. Nothing.

It happened about two weeks ago, they discovered it at Phallanston General Hospital, downtown. Well, discovered may have been a bad word. "Took the brunt of the initial attack" might be a better phrase to use. They still don't know what caused it, just what it looks like. A few doctors got out with enough knowledge to be able to identify it before the hospital was overrun by patients the doctors thought they'd lost to the illness.

Next thing you know? Everyone's got it. It's like, "hey Joey, how many frickin' zombies have you seen walking the streets today?" "Oh, only a couple hundred, Jill, almost got me, too!" and then you look around and they're still chasing you, and you run away, get to somewhere safe, only to spend another night in Hell. And you know why you do it? Because then maybe you live to spend another night.

Well hey, that's what being human is about right? Never giving up? Huh. Well we're certainly doing a good job at that... just, giving up, that's not the only way to die. There's also, you know, like, the Zombies.


It's a day we all knew would happen... all of us. That's why we keep swords by our beds, and we never leave home without making sure the baseball bat is in its proper place. It's why we make sure our back doors work properly, and open outward. More of us have made disaster preparedness plans for this accursed event than for fire safety.

The Zombie Apocalypse has arrived.


So are you a survivor? Will you make it out of the city of Phallanston alive, or will you become infected just like the others?

This will not be a strictly traditional phalla, however there will be only 2 factions, and one of them will be clearly and identifiably evil. The presence of neutrals shall remain undiscussed. All of the standard phalla rules apply here, check the discussion thread at the top of the forum if you are not aware of them.

Voting will close each day at 7:00 PM Pacific time (that's 10:00 eastern for those of you playing at home) and any votes and/or actions in at 7:01 will not count.

There will be 30 spots available. Signups in the next post!

    --Repost of Rules and Abilities--

    ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE PHALLA

    Rules:

    1) Voting

    Each day in the narration you will discover that you have found a Firearm, such as a pistol or a shotgun. Each day you will vote for someone to recieve the weapon. That person will be responsible for using the weapon the following day.

    2) Actions
    Every survivor may perform 1 action each day other than voting. All players may accomplish the following:

    -Expertise- This action may be used once per game per player, and represents the player using their personality's innate knowledge in order to help the survivors make it through the situation alive. This action must be accompanied by an in-character explanation of the ability's usage. Example: A Coffee-shop clerk who happened to be in a coffee shop might say:
    "I use my Expertise to look around the premesis for any sort of security equipment we might use to alert us to an approaching zombie attack."

    -Protect- You may give your life to protect another player. If that player would die for any reason (including being Shot, or using Protect or Heal), you die in their place. If you die in this way you may not be Healed. Also, you only get one false alarm. So if you Protect someone who does not die, the next time you use Protect you will die regardless of any other actions that round.
    Example: I Protect Rend

    -Heal- You may give your medical supplies to a disabled player in order to heal them. That player will be fully back in the game the following day, and you will be dead in their place. If you die in this way you may not be Healed. Any given player can only be Healed once.
    Example: I Heal Rend

    -Aid- You may aid a fellow to do a complex task. Special survivors may have an ability which requires other players to aid them in order to accomplish it. In such cases, any survivor may aid them in this way.

    Example: I will Aid Rend in his exploits. (whatever they may be. I'll get that academy award!)
    Note: You do not need tro know with what you are aiding the player, only that you aid them that turn.

    2.1) Shoot
    Each day one survivor will be voted to recieve the weapon found at the scene. That survivor must use Shoot, listed below, and may not use any other abilities that turn.

    Shoot- You shoot the target, disabling them. This attack will never miss, but may be protected against or healed.
    Example: Heck yes! I Shoot Rend!

    3) Dead vs Disabled
    Disabled players have been attacked in some way and are dying. Disabled players may still participate in the game, however, they may only use Expertise and Shoot, as well as Vote. No other abilities will be effective. If a disabled player is not healed by the end of the day, they become dead.

    Dead players are permanently eliminated from the game.

    4) In general

    -All actions except evil ones are public knowledge. You can all see what each other is doing, and this shows.
    -All results from all specials will be revealed in public via narration.
    -Each day Vote in red and make an Action in lime.
