The Frigid Wastes: OOC
« on: January 06, 2017, 08:43:21 PM »
So, I noticed no-one was using the interest check for OOC chatter, so to avoid too much OOC stuff leaking into the IC, I'm gonna go ahead and make a thread for all that here.

I also figured it would help to provide some idea of the tech advancements, so here are a few teasers!

Now, after that taste, I hope everyone is excited for the chance to get their hands on this type of gear. I will say now, to avoid any worry. These weapons are still highly experimental by the time the calamity strikes, and most of them are locked away inside of military labs, very, very few ever made it out, and those that did, are going to be in the hands of very powerful and influential people. The ammo for the energy weapons is also insanely rare, so the best guns you can aim for will be highly modernized firearms.

Also, do try to keep in mind, a lot of the guns being used by the crew are antiques, some of which are 100 years+ old, not all ammo will be plentiful, which is why I also provided a small stash of generic weaponry, should you run out of ammo for the ones you have.

Who says that you need to be good at games, anyway?

Oh yeah I probably should've asked if that sheet was okay or if I need to re-do it.

5/7, a perfect score.

Also sorry for the gap in posts, I had a fully written draft, and then my computer crashed, so I had to retype it all, and finding time to do that was a little difficult.

I'm gonna go ahead and make a guess that it'd be alright, knowin' Dapper.

Alright and one more question about it, should I post the character here, or should I post it in the forums for the already running RP?

I'm alway open to a few more folks joining, and here would be the best place. I'd like to have all sheets in an easily accessible place, though most of the sheets in the IC are in the first few pages, so they're easy enough to find. It'd just be kind of hard to keep tabs on names, weapons, and such if I've gotta look through 50 pages or so, later in the RP :)

Gonna drop this sheet here and keep it current with the changes in-game.

Name: Raymond "Ray" Carson
Gender: Male
Age: Early 30's
History: Raymond 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 (7 left)
Matchbook (14 left)
4 days of food (Mainly dried meats and some canned fruits/veggies)
Switchblade
Glock 18 (10 round mag, 1 empty 10 round mag, 1 extended 20 round mag)
Mac-10 (30 round mag, 1 spare mag)
AR-15 (1 empty 30 round mag, 30 loose rounds) [+Shoulder strap] [-Broken stock]
Clothing: Dark parka, knit sweater, black ski pants, combat boots, leather gloves, beanie, and a pair of sunglasses.

Is it too late to join the fun?
Sometimes I think I'd have an easier time surviving Cataclysm IRL than in game.
