Note: I am not highly educated about anything written below. I'm aware these events would never actually play out as listed. I'm only trying to make a somewhat interesting story.
April 3, 2027
Tensions between North and South Korea have reached boiling point. War breaks lose. Other nations are hesitant to join the conflict due to the ever-present threat of nuclear war.
April 6, 2027
The United States becomes the first nation to declare war on North Korea, hoping to start a chain-reaction among other nations and overwhelm North Korea.
April 7, 2027
The US authorizes the sending of troops to South Korea. Other nations are supporting South Korea, but are still hesitant to declare war.
April 9, 2027
North Korea utilizes a synthesized virus designed to make people much more aggressive, actively attacking other people. The plan is for South Korea to tear itself apart. When this news breaks, most major nations decide to draw the line and declare war.
April 11, 2027
The virus spreads faster than anyone expected. In a matter of days South Korea is overrun with the infected, but not before hundreds of thousands are evacuated.
April 16, 227
Several European and Asian cities have outbreaks of the virus. Over the next few months they continue to struggle with the virus, but that problem seems distant to America. That couldn’t possibly happen here…
Rules and Stuff
Basic RP rules apply. This is supposed to be as realistic as a fun, zombie apocalypse RP can be, so keep it believable. All events will be determined by the roll of a dice (including the reactions and various things about NPCs, though I will be “playing” then). Due to this, many actions will require you to wait for me to post before moving forward in the RP (Such as some fighting scenes looting places). Please be patient. There is literally no storyline to follow at all. It’s up to you to make your own story by playing.
Description of Area
The RP takes place in a fictional section of North Carolina, USA.
The main city, Greenstone, is medium-sized, with several large skyscrapers but mostly mid-sized buildings (30 floors at most). The city slowly gets smaller the farther you get from the center (except to the east, as the main part of the city is on the coast).
To the west there is mainly forest, aside from a few houses and cabins. The Greenstone River runs through the forest.
To the north is the small city of Blueburg. Blueberg contains only a few moderately mid-sized buildings and mostly small buildings. The Greenstone River runs just west of the city.
To the South is mostly farmland. A few houses and farms are spread throughout the area, but nothing major. The Greenstone River cuts straight through the area before emptying into the Atlantic.
