Drowing on Dry Land - a roleplay
This roleplay contains themes of drowning, and zombies. Yes, drowning and zombies combined.
Read/join at your own risk.
It was dark, and it looked as if nobody was there.
The grass felt like it had morning dew, but it only just became dark a few hours ago.
You may be wondering why it was like this.
Well, it all started half a year ago.
A single person - a poor, 13-year-old coyote, named Carol - fell into a place called Nemlor river. She ended up drowning, but didn't exactly die from it.
She came out of the water, drenched. She was practically a zombie.
It was a horrible way to live.
She didn't want to be in it alone.
She lured other people to the river, turning them into Nemlor zombies, just like her.
It slowly spread, and people began to call it the Nemlor disease.
Carol is still out there, but nowhere to be found. They now call her Nemlor, named after the river, and being the starter of the disease.
Now everyone has to stay safe.
However, the animals who haven't been killed by the Nemlor zombies don't realize they should be sticking together.
Instead of forming alliances, everyone seems to fight for survival.
There are a few, such as siblings, best friends, etc, that team up, but other than that, it's every man for himself.
-This is a very important rule: please don't get to extreme with your descriptions of the Nemlor and/or gore!
It can make people very uncomfortable.
-Your character(s) can be any animal, but they have to be an anthro version of that animal.
Birds and other flying animals are okay, as long as they don't use that advantage 24/7!
-Characters are mostly naturally-colored, but can have unnatural markings, and unnatural colors within reason.
Like, you can have a, let's say a silver fox, with some dull blue markings.
You CAN'T have a blue dog with pink spots.
You CAN have a snow leopard with purple rosettes.
Get my point?
-On a similar note, any eye color is allowed.
-No powerplaying. Give your RP partner a chance to act, instead of immediately defeating them!
-Characters gotta be cis and straight (or ace and/or aro), sorry. But you dont have to be! Anyone's allowed to join!!
-Please /try/ not to make your character a mary sue (too perfect). I would like your characters to have a decent balance of positive and negative traits
-Don't kill other people's characters without their permission
-If your character dies in Nemlor lake, they become a Nemlor zombie.
-If your character is killed by another uninfected, you may make a new one.
-Characters are aged around 13 and over.
-Keep everything child-friendly. That means no swearing, even censored.
-Please roleplay third-person past-tense.
-This roleplay is set in a small city, near a forest, with Nemlor lake in the center of the forest.
-A little unrelated: there's both anthro and feral animals. Feral animals are treated the same as humans treat them in real life.
Meaning that carnivores can still eat meat and stuff without it being weird. You can't be a feral, though.
-Nemlors can't be killed by other Nemlors.
-Keep in mind the disease has only been going on for less than a year! Your character would have to be very young to lose their parents to the Nemlor at a young age!
-The river is very hard to escape for reasons that may be revealed in roleplay.
