The year is 2019; the world has recovered from it's disaster's regarding the multiple Biohazzard outbreaks across the world. A new President has been elected after Adam Benford's Cabinet was tallied down from any and all that was involved with the National Security Adviser, Derek Simmons, were fired from all their positions and replaced. The U.S. had finally started recovering from it's crisis, it was starting to become a memory rather than a recent wound from the college campus and town that had suffered from the plague that occurred in has become one again. However, this story does not start there, it instead begins in another town with a new corporation that has slowly grown without the watchful eye of the BSAA, the Osiris Organization...an suspecting town called Plainville, on the very 20th anniversary of the first incident.
Here we have four three different, ordinary people get caught up in the fight for their lives like never before. Will they escape with their morality and sanity intact? Or will they succumb to the undead horde that comes from within their hometown? Or will they discover some other way to solve the apocalypse that befalls them?
More will be revealed as the game goes on, when the instance they are necessary is prompted.
"Names Ryuk Radion, I work security, just helped a couple escape the bar I was at.... and escape a deranged lunatic but my guess would be he's no longer in this world..... oh and a monster immune to bullets..... fun times all around I guess." He would say with a slight chuckle as he examined the group a little more closely while slowly walk forward.
"Now doc, if what you're saying is true, and there's a chance you're immune, you're a very important man and I'm willing to help the three of you out..... however, if you start to turn into one of those things out there..... I'll have no choice but to put you down. Same goes for her too I'm afraid." He'd say in as nonthreatening as he could while gesturing toward Tina.
"I've already had to put down one man who had been bit..... I don't wanna have to put down more, at least not fully turned ones, but I'll do what must be done to get back to the girl I love, hope you understand what I'm saying." He'd say with sincerity in his voice.
He would then get a more serious tone and start conducting a plan. "First order of business should be getting some supplies, as much as I'd love to go get my extra clips and this little ladies twin sister...." he pats his pistol "....I'm not sure how viable an option that is right now sadly so we'll have to see what we find here. Second, we'll wanna get those two girls somewhere safe, again, no offense, but the more people we got the harder it becomes to sneak around the city and avoid the big nasties. Third, I'm gonna take you to where it is I'm hoping to find some answers and hopefully that can lead to finding a solution to all of this."
"Okay guys, here goes nothing" Says Robbie. Robbie would creep his way out of the truck towards the cache to grab the tire and the tools to fix the flat. He would look around first to be alert of the pink dog and to see if Jim has turned in the back of the truck yet.
Roll for spotting pink dog ouside of truck: 1d20+2 = 17ℹ (15 + 2)
Roll to observe Jim inside the truck bed: 1d20+2 = 19ℹ (17 + 2)
Christopher would attempt to recollect what may have happened in the town Tina mentioned.
Base INT Check: d20+2 = 22ℹ (20 + 2)
"If it means that I can assist you in finding a cure for this calamity, then I have no qualms with going with you. If we can get the two of them somewhere that they are almost guaranteed to be safe, I also have no qualms in separating from them for the time. And as for supplies, I have a fair amount of medical supplies on me as well as some other essentials, but we were making an active effort to search through these storage rooms for anything useful."
Turning to Tina and Lilly and giving them a warm smile before continuing,
"I know you most likely want to stay with me, but, in truth, no where out here is safe, especially not for Lilly. I would feel much better knowing that you were safe somewhere away from me than being with me and in constant danger."
Turning back to Ryuk,
"Now, Mr. Radion, I can only assume that you are adept with that pistol of yours. I have had some sort of dumb luck using this golf club, but I assure you that I am not one to use weapons. I have keen eyes and a great sense of hearing, my medical skills are nothing to scoff at, I am keen on the major sciences, and I can somewhat discern a person's true intentions by listening to them and observing their body language. I also took some extra classes on the side allowing for me to be able to somewhat create medicinal drugs given the time and materials."
He would see that Jim was still out cold in the back of the truck, not seeming to be any worse than he already was. Robbie would see in the distance something dart behind a fenced white yard; he couldn't catch if it was the same pink looking dog or if it was some other kind of creature. He would hear Jebidiah whisper loudly back to Robbie, "Come on son, we don't have all day now! Be quick about it." He would hear more fear than irritation in his voice; something that was probably apparent in all of them at this point with the world seeming to end.
Tina would nod solemnly to the words Christopher was speaking, though looking over to Ryuk she gave him an distrustful look. She can't believe he would say those things in front of a child! "I understand your reasoning...I don't want to agree but you are the better suited one to be out here Chris.You said you took your friends somewhere safe, would there be any chance you could take us to them as well? I don't want to say what I am thinking but I think...being with a group is better than just me an her." Lilly would suddenly bolt over to Christopher, tears welling up in her eyes as she hugged his legs with the lobster they had found earlier. "Don't kill Mr. Chris! He saved me and Tina! He is a good man, he isn't like those things just cuz he got bit!" She began to slur her words a bit as Lilly slowly came to his side and half-smiled to him; her eyes also suggested she would be sad to see him go after he saved her life twice now.
For Timmeh1024 ONLY
You would recall that name; he was the previous president that died in the Tall Oaks college town incident six years ago. It was reported that a large purple mist covered the campus and surrounding area which near instantaneously turned all who were exposed to into Zombies. However, the ones that didn't get caught in the cloud but bitten by the zombies exhibited the natural progression to zombification as he recalls from a released medical report of Umbrella in the Raccoon City Incident some tewnty years ago. Even though it might be a different company pulling the strings, the MO is similar to that same incident...perhaps only certain areas were targeted rather than the entire city? If so, to what end? Maybe this Ryuk would have some info that would fill in the blanks.
Ryuk would scratch his head pondering things over, especially Tina's request. "Turthfully I'm not 100% sure if I can get you in where I left those two. I don't personally know the guys who made the shelter very well. Only reason they got in was because Joseph knew them and we'd have to backtrack a ways to get there.... Not to mention the more we go to that spot the more likely they are to get spotted. I know that there's a safe zone not too far away from here on the way to my destination that would be a good spot."
He'd then address Christopher. "You sound like a very versatile man. Could come in handy, plus, at this point, a little luck can go a long way. Now I advise we get moving to those other lockers and keep moving. The longer we stay, the more danger we're in."
"So which direction would we be heading if we brought them to that safe zone? It sounds like we'd be able to kill two birds with one stone by doing so, as long as that safe zone isn't overrun. From what I can remember from the two previous incidents where the dead came back to life, places got overrun fairly quickly. Do you know anything more about what's going on? I just know that if you're bitten, you typically turn. Those things only die if you destroy their head, meaning the brain, and they seem to like to group up a lot. They're very sensitive to sound too, so that gun of yours will need to be used carefully if we don't want to attract more of them."
Christopher would pause and ponder for a moment.
"There is still that map in the glove compartment of the car. It could prove incredibly useful to us so that we don't have to try to remember where we are all the time or to use landmarks to hopefully go the right direction. If it is of great assistance to you're abilities in combat, then I would like to expedite the time it takes for us to reach your place where your extra gun and ammo are located."
Tina would chime in to Christopher's ramblings, "I think he means the emergency shelter Chris, you know...the one where Lilly said her dad might be?" She would try to whisper to him as he seemed to have ignored the child attached to his leg, Lilly slowly stopping her crying as she looked back to Ryuk and Chris. "I...I don't understand, you just said you would kill mister Chris an Lilly but...Mister Chris, why are you going with the strange man? Don't you like us anymore?" She seems confused as they two men only talk to themselves an not include the two ladies in their presence.
"Ah, yes, thank you Tina. You seem to have a knack for pulling me back to reality when I start rambling a bit! While I don't want to separate from either of you, I would rather separate from you two if it meant not putting you in anymore danger."
Reaching up and placing a hand gently on Tina's cheek, Christopher would continue,
"I know you'll understand. If it means I can save more people, especially the two of you, then I would gladly go as deep into this hell as necessary. I'm sure someone, somewhere, is working on a cure or maybe they already have one! If not, then I'll be damn sure to be the one to start working on one. This calamity brought us together, but it sure as hell won't break us apart.... For longer than absolutely necessary that is." He would shoot a wink at her, before removing his hand and addressing Lilly.
Christopher would get down on one knee in order to be as close to the same height as her as possible. He would place his left hand on her head and, after wiping the tears from her eyes with his right hand reply,
"I'm very sorry Lilly, but I promise I was listening to what you were saying and I cannot thank you enough for worrying about me so much. You see, I was trying to see if Mr. Radion was really a bad man, but I now know he isn't. He was just worried that he was going to run into more of those monster too, just like we are. He knows that I don't like those things any more than he does, and we have come to understand what each other is trying to do. We aren't friends, but it looks like we are going to work together to get you to where your daddy is and so that Ms. Tina can be safe with you. I'm going to try to help him stop the monsters from attacking other people so that we don't have to worry about them any more."
After pausing for a second, giving her a big smile, and looking at Ryuk and Tina, then back to Lilly.
"Also Lilly, I don't have any kids of my own, but the time I've spent with you has helped me learn what it's like to have a daughter I care about ver much."
Ryuk would address Lilly softly seeing that she was upset. "Lilly, I believe Mr. Chris is a very smart and special man that has the chance to save the whole world. I'm simply here to help him do it. I have someone special to me that's currently hiding right now too and I promised her I'd do whatever I could to make sure I took care of all this as quickly as possible. So I'll make you a promise, I will do my best to make sure Mr. Chris returns as quickly as possible because I can tell he means a lot to you and you two seem to mean a lot to him as well."
He would then get more serious and address Chris. "Well I can confirm the gun does have a tendency to get their attention when shot.... hopefully I can get my hands on a silencer at work maybe.... As much as my extra weapon would be nice, I'm not sure how many zombies are in that building right now. With just the two of us it might be difficult to get there. It's also on the NW side of town while the shelter is on the SE so it's a lot of traveling. Then again you've made it this far with two girls and a golf club so you must be lucky, and that luck might be even more important than any skills I have right now. I mean the last time I called my boss it sounded like there was a lot of shit going nuts at work so it might not be the worst thing. I've only got 13 shots left with my current mag so it would be nice to restock and re-arm..... The way I see it is that with the apartment building being the closest going there first would require less backtracking, but also put those two in more possible danger, or we drop them off then have to backtrack further which is gonna take a lot of time, and the final option is we drop them off and just keep going.... I'll just have to use ammo more sparingly. We've spent a lot of time here thoygh so we'd better loot the place and go asap, the longer we stay the more dangerous it becomes."
Robbie decides to sack up and grab the tools and the spare. Robbie tries to put the spare on as quickly and accurately as possible.
Her face would blush a bit as she heard the words Christopher spoke; she wasn't usually the type to fall for men so sentimental like this but he was beginning to grow on her. He had saved her life twice now, that spoke a lot about his character to her and she nodded her head an grasped his hand that he placed on her cheek, rubbing it gently as she looked him in the eyes once more. "You get attached a little easily don't you? That's good though...I think I need someone like that right now. Ok, wherever you think is best, I will go. We could make for the shelter or find a suitable place to bunker down...maybe even here with how reinforced the doors and units are. Just don't do anything crazy alright? You're too smart to die here." She would joke with him as she let his hand go so that he could speak with Lilly.
She would look back up to her savior, a random man that protected her when she was at her most fragile moment losing her grandmother and sniffle as she felt his gentl, caring touch lift the tears away from her red cheeks. "That's..that's the truth right? Ok...I am glad you aren't leaving us Mister Chris, I really want to see my daddy again but...I don't want to see you go away either. Daddy said something like that once with one of his people at work, that...even though they didn't get along they still worked together to help protect us so that he wasn't all bad...I guess Mister Raydon is like daddy's friend then?" She would say as she looked over to Ryuk, listening to his words as well and nodded her head towards him. He must've had someone like her daddy loved her mommy, she knew how much he still cared about her even though...however, her eyes going to the gun at his side but before she could do or think anything else tilted her head sideways to Christopher. "Huh, you don't have any kids Mister Chris? Well, if you did I think you would make a good daddy!" She said happily as she gave him one last hug before letting him go, knowing he wasn't dieing or going now.
