welcome to obituary! register your name (first and last) in all lowercase. we are a rapidfire shipper-app site site set in the united states following a viral outbreak. it is currently march, 2015, and fairly cold outside. the majority of survivors should be dressed as warmly as possible and find some sort of shelter to sleep in besides a tent due to high winds at night. if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact one of the admins via either private message or instant message.

THE APOCALYPSE

it happened on a tuesday in january, sudden but not an explosion. it was strangely, frighteningly simple. some people woke up the way they had been the day before. some woke up, but they were no longer alive. that first day, people traveled to work, not knowing anything was different until their bosses tried to rip their throats out with their teeth, or the taxi driver decided to take a chunk out of their arm. there was no rhyme or reason, and for the first few weeks, the world tumbled into disorganized chaos.

people struggled to survive, fighting against looters and bandits, trying to find a safe place to spend the night. but humanity's greatest asset is the ability to adapt, and before long, groups of survivors were forming, trying to bring together what remained of the decimated cities.

still no explanation has been reached, but those who have survived this long have simply begun to accept it. a new life. a new beginning. even if it isn't a positive one.

THE (UN)DEAD

strangely enough, there has been no confirmation that the dead are victims of a viral infection, even though it does seem to spread like a viral infection would (through bite marks or contact w/ an open wound, via tainted water, etc). whether or not the undead (referred to sometimes as 'stoners' or 'the dead', and occasionally other things depending on the region) are actually infected with anything stands to be discussed, but currently no one refers to them as 'infected', nor has anyone with a pathology based ability either confirmed or denied the theory of it being a virus.

Symptoms

depending on the method of infection, time frames and symptoms vary. the constants between all types are as follows;

  • gradual loss of strength
  • redness of eyes and palor of skin
  • vomiting
  • fever and chills
  • hallucination
  • a sudden period of strength and clarity in which the subject is prone to violence
  • death
  • reanimation

ABILITIES

the day the undead began walking the earth, the living found themselves changing in inexplicable ways as well. for most, it started out simple. accidental electrical shocks from their fingers, anger creating small fires, cuts disappearing in just moments. but as people became more aware, their newfound abilities became stronger. the world had ended, but in the ruins of it, they’d been provided with a chance of survival.

it’s been two months now, so pretty much everyone with an ability is aware of theirs (unless it’s one that would only be used in a very specific situation). though many don’t know the true extent, most have found time to strengthen their control on their powers. there are always those who allow too much power to get to them and use their abilities to control and manipulate others, or incapacitate them so they can steal their supplies. but most of the survivors have taken to using their newfound abilities to help themselves and their groups stay alive.

LOCATION / SETTING

the city of las vegas, nevada, was once a worldwide landmark, vivid with life and potential. the neon lights were so bright they were almost blinding, and it served as a popular vacation spot as well of place of residence. though much quieter and smaller, paradise, nevada served to be similar to its namesake, providing comfort and quiet as well as an easy commute to vegas.

now, the large populations in vegas have caused an overrun of undead. they linger in the streets, stumbling and searching for unlucky survivors. the living are highly outnumbered, and are often found in quieter areas, only venturing into the busier areas of the cities on supply runs. paradise is not quite as overwhelmed, but there are enough stumbling, flesh-eating creatures to cause a considerable amount of concern.

thanks to those with abilities such as electrokinesis and technopathy, generators in some buildings are still running, and enough cell phone towers still operate for communication to be fairly common. but conditions are still far from ideal, and danger and the potential of food shortages still haunt every survivor in the once-great cities.
