PostSubject: Half Dead (A dark fantasy-ish adventure)   Wed Jul 13, 2011 9:43 am

Introductory Story thing


A monster, they called me. Unnatural, unholy, evil – all of these they used to describe me. They were wrong. They were too judgmental, those who were lucky enough to survive the End of Days intact. I was not one of them, am still not one of them. That doesn’t mean I’m evil.

Planning

This is a story set in a fantasy world ruled by three massive Empires. It is set a decade after the event known as the End of Days, or the Apocalypse, in which the Old World was destroyed. As the Old World collapsed, the greatest of wizards and arch mages opened portals to the New World, saving thousands, perhaps tens of thousands of lives. When the Old World had collapsed completely, the portals closed.

There were a few people who were in the portals, travelling between the worlds, when they closed. These people were then spat out into random locations across the New World, half dead. Literally, one half of their body was bare bone and strands of flesh. The other half was normal, alive.

At first they were in great agony, the only movements they could make were instinctual and a result of the pain. Soon the pain stopped. They lay, they noticed their deformities. They were horrified. Once they got over that, they noticed their surroundings.

They were completely lost in the wilderness. It would be a decade before civilisation found them. But they would wish civilisation had just left them alone.

Players play of one of these unfortunate Half-Dead people. After a decade of surviving in whatever environment they were spat out into, after having partially reverted back to animalistic instincts, they finally come into contact with another human.

They are scorned, feared and hunted by the humans. They are utterly repulsed by these 'undead horrors'. After evading humans for a while, players are finally captured and taken to a place sacred to the humans to be executed. This is where the players meet up, and the proper RP starts, this is where the players begin controlling their characters.

First, they must escape. Then they must work together to survive and evade the humans. Then, when they discover a terrible secret in a human graveyard, their focus turns from running, into fighting.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Dun, dun, DUN!!! So, what else happens? So we play as people who are 50% undead (or is it just dead?) and 50% alive. So they'd be rejected by the undead and living alike. But what makes it more interesting? Anything to flesh it out (so-to-speak).

Yea, because... Wait, can we still walk around, like if our legs are the undead half?

And is the dead half undead or just plain dead? What if our heart is in the dead half? I see some physiology problems with this which need to be cleared up.

The undead half performs most living functions normally, through magic, though the indead limbs are much stronger and more durable then their living counterparts, and don't feel pain. All the normal undead stuff applies to this half, like resistance to poison and disease and obvious stuff like that, exceptlight magic doesn't do any extra harm to it.

OK, fascinating. So you basically get to be undead while not actually being undead.

What's the plot? Fight back is too simple.
