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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED Q'S


WHY DON'T WE HAVE A PREMIUM CBOX?

because we didn't want to purchase one right off! if the site does well for at least a month (which is only three weeks) then we'll purchase a premium cbox. or if you guys absolutely cannot stand it, we'll consider it <3


HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE
THE APOCALYPSE STARTED?

if you read the site lore, it says 'january' - the site is fluid time, which means that it's currently the same month in the roleplay as it is in real life! of course, the board itself goes in eastern standard time, but the plot is progressing in the nevada timezone. hopefully that can answer your question!


ARE ANY ABILITIES "OFF LIMITS"?

we aren’t limiting what abilities characters can have, but certain ones (higher level - empathic mimicry, ability learning, ability replication, other abilities deemed extremely or all-powerful) will work on a REWARDS SYSTEM OF SORTS, if that’s even the right term.

essentially, what i mean here is that you can’t start off with a super-strong ability. later on, once you’ve been with us for x amount of time and completed x, x, and x tasks or benchmarks, and we know that we can trust you not to play a character that is extremely overpowered and use that power the wrong way or have a mary sue or gary stu, then we’ll allow you to apply for a new character with the desired ability. you can’t switch an already existing character’s ability.

if you’re unsure on whether an ability would be considered off limits to join with, feel free to ask us! we don’t bite. and it’s honestly a fairly small list anyway, basically, if the ability is found under the divine section of THIS list, it’s one that we’ll need you to work towards!


CAN I PLAY A ZOMBIE?

short answer? no. you can play someone who gets infected, but eventually they will die and turn, and will have to be killed off or left to rot. you won't be able to play them anymore. if we were going to go into complicated territory, there are abilities that yes, would technically allow you to play a zombie, but we're talking literal zombies in the roleplay, and the answer to that is no.


CAN I CREATE MY OWN GROUP?

short answer here is yes. you can, but we're putting some limits on it because we don't want six hundred member created groups running around and no characters being made for the current ones. there are SEVEN spots for membergroups on the site. four of those are currently taken. which means there are THREE open spots for new groups. if you wish to create a group, you can check HERE for the guidelines.


CAN A CHARACTER BE "IMMUNE"?

yes. a character can be immune to the virus. however, we're limiting this to characters whose abilities allow immunity, and not some kind of gene or otherwise earned immunity. you cannot work your way towards immunity. if your character doesn't have healing or another ability that allows them to keep from being infected, they are able to be infected, end of story. however, this shouldn't be a problem since it's your character and nobody is going to make them get infected without your permission.


HOW ARE THERE STILL COMMUNICATIONS?

at this point in time, cell phone towers are still up and running, thanks to help from people with electricity or energy-based abilities. service is faulty, and most people prefer the reliability of walkie-talkies, but cell phones are still in use for the time being. however, they only work in las vegas and the immediate vicinity. cross-coastal phone calls never seem to go through.


IS THERE ELECTRICITY?

both of the main camps, as well as various buildings throughout the city are running on generators. at times, they will even switch to full power, depending on the situation and abilities of those around them. most of the time, however, back-up lights, refrigeration, and air conditioning are the only forms of power that are used. water is also still turned on in many buildings, thankfully, making showering and washing clothes possible for survivors who can find the right place.
