The Frigid Wastes. Episode 1: Icebreaker
« on: January 03, 2017, 10:51:01 PM »
The chill winter air surged through the streets, howling and whipping up loose flakes of snow, small flurries of white shooting between the once bustling sidewalks, and trash filled alleyways.

The snow had been disturbed in a small area, betraying the movements of the group that now dwelled within the small library of the town's center. It had a good supply of books, and a basement to make their home in, so the few survivors figured it was a good place to settle in and wait for the worst of the situation to pass.

Each of them had survived through the hell that was the riots and the looting. They survived the mass panic, through whatever means they could. And now they found themselves in a world filled with nothing but bitter cold.

As the chill, stale air of the library settles slightly, the distinct sound of crunching snow underfoot could be heard from outside.

What will everyone do?

Remaining inventory:
30 piles of books (It takes approximately 5 piles to keep a fire burning for 24 hours. If used as sparingly as possible, this supply could last up to 2 weeks with current conditions)
10 days worth of canned food and bottled water
A bolt action rifle, fully loaded (6 rounds), and with an extra 18 rounds of ammo
A pump action shotgun, fully loaded (8 shells), and with a spare 8 shells
A handgun, fully loaded (7 rounds) and with a spare 21 rounds of ammo
A hatchet, sharp, but beginning to dull slightly
A machete, nearly unused
A baseball bat, slightly worn, but still in great shape

Character skelly

Name:
Gender:
Age:
History:
Inventory:
Warm Clothes (Consists of long sleeve tee, fleece jacket, thick jeans, beanie hat, gloves, thick socks and combat boots)
Box of 20 waterproof matches

((Alright folks, Hopefully my GMing skills have improved, and everyone enjoys the RP))

Name: Raymond "Ray" Carson
Gender: Male
Age: Early 30's
History: Eugene was a dropout who was picked up by the local crime syndicate at a young age. He worked his way up to doing hits for the organization. He was good at his job: quick, effective, but he was messy. Five years prior to the end of the world he slipped up and got put behind bars. He settled in for the decades he would spend there, but the apocalypse had different ideas. The prison cells were opened after the guards stopped coming, and when he regained his freedom he did the only thing he knew: he went back to business. Even at the end of civilization, there were still plenty of people who wanted someone dead, and those people paid good money.
Inventory:
Crumpled pack of cigarettes (8 left)
Matchbook (15 left)
4 days of food (Mainly dried meats and some canned fruits/veggies)
Switchblade
Glock 18 (10 round mag, 1 10 round mag, 1 extended 20 round mag)
Mac-10 (30 round mag, 1 spare mag)
Clothing: Dark parka, knit sweater, black ski pants, combat boots, leather gloves, beanie, and a pair of sunglasses.

As soon as Dec puts his sheet up, I'd imagine. But if you're interested in joining, I'm sure Dogman wouldn't mind another player.

((This is set in a near-future scenario, around 2050 or so.

But don't worry, any technical advancements that have come through, I'll explain when they come up.))

Name: Aldo Magnusson
Gender: Male
Age: 34
History: Aldo's one of those guys worthy of the saying "been there, done that." He grew up in rural New England, and after a relatively unsatisfying early life, he joined up with a government-sanctioned private military organization specializing in peacekeeping missions in unstable areas. He toured through Africa, Southeast Asia, and Eastern Europe on a seven-year career, seeing combat here and there, seeing good old adventure everywhere else.

Aldo came back to the States at the age of twenty-six, and became what some would call a vagrant, transient, whatever. He liked the term "free." Hitchhiking, sightseeing, partying, and other such activities have been his life for the past eight years, broken up by fighting unfriendly locals and sleeping under bridges. And, well, then this whole apocalypse thing came around, and that's been about the same for everybody.

Inventory
Taurus Raging Thirty with a ten-inch barrel in .30 Carbine, obviously enough, kept in a side holster below his shoulder. (Six in the cylinder, eighteen in his pockets)
Colt Single Action Army with a 4.5" barrel kept in a waist-high horizontal back holster beneath Aldo's coat. (Six .45 LC in the cylinder, twenty-four in his pockets)
Long antler-handled dagger, it looks somewhat old and valuable, but works like new. Aldo keeps the sheath on his belt.
Hobo stove of sheet metal, easy enough to find fuel for since it just runs on tinder. A makeshift copper pot goes with it.
Old-fashioned refillable butane lighter with a stylized landscape reading "RHODE ISLAND" embossed on the front, and enough juice for a few more days.
Eight days of food (Salted strips of game meat, canned vegetables, fruit, and soup, etc.)
Some liquor (A large bottle of Old Tom gin, a gallon jug of watered-down ethanol, some airplane-sized bottles of rum and assorted liqueurs, and another bottle of aged corn whiskey)
Narcotics (A plastic-wrapped package of good old coke, a baggy of amphetamine tablets, dried hallucinogenic mushrooms, and a few stray opiates in pill form)
Clothing: A heavy wool greatcoat over Kevlar motorcycle pants and a sweatshirt, a pair of wool socks and hiking boots, and armored fingerless gloves with fur hand wraps covering them up. A small sling pack holds the belongings not stored in his coat.

The cold, biting air circles the town as more pairs of feet join the crunching outside, careful, calculated footsteps as the mysterious figures sweep over the town. A few split off, and entered a department store, their guns leveled and ready to unleash hell.

Their clothes were unusual, and anyone who dared sneak a peek from one of the library's windows would notice that it was a kind of uniform.

They donned a gray camo, more digital than winterized, but they all donned the same style. They must have looted their gear from an army depot of some kind. Their guns were mostly undecorated, plain, and all but a few lacked any personalization at all.

The one solitary figure who seemed to be co-ordinating the men, however, held a rifle that he had very much made his own. Not only was his AR-15 bearing the same camo as his uniform, but it bore many upgrades. It bore many old modifications, clearly military in origin. Along with its pre-calamity modifications, it now bore various charms and trinkets, from necklaces of bone and teeth to tally marks on the stock.



The men continued their sweep, as the leader splits off with a few men, and heads toward a nearby building, one of his men pressing the muzzle of his shotgun against the frozen door, and blowing the handle off.

BOOM

Those who were not watching are now alerted to the presence of  armed men outside

***

Yuri sighs as he makes it to the top of the hill, just outside of town, his eyes focusing on the buildings "Hope this place hasn't been looted clean" he grumbles, getting onto his stomach and resting his rifle on the icy ground, using the scope to check out the town "...Those folks don't look too friendly" he mumbles to himself

Katherine jerked her head up from the nap she was taking, looking in the general direction from where the blast came from. "The hell was that?" She complained groggily.

Ray had been crouched next to the window, watching the men outside. He turns back around to face the others and in a low voice says, "Exactly what it sounded like. We've got company on the street." He slinks his way over to the rest of the group. "It looks like they're going door to door, and I don't think they're selling cookies. We need to get ready for a fight."

Aleksandr was sleeping against one of the bookcases.
"Da hell was that?"
He sluggishly stood up and peeked out a window.
"Hmm, the don't look too friendly"

(Imagine his voice as Nikolai belinsky from COD)

"You want me to get on the roof? I can give you guys covering fire if you need it." She said, grabbing her rifle and strapping on the battery pack.
