Put any comments and criticism here.  I don't really want the main thread clogged up with these.

RCS I am gonna jock your thread here to talk a little about my little multi authored story.

So later today I am going to post what I have so far and see where it goes.  Anyone who wants to add a story go ahead.  There really are no major rules, but just post from your point of view and go from there.  I am going to go back and paste a few things in this thread to keep in mind when writing in that thread.  Please try your best to just put your finished story in that thread and keep any and all questions about that story in here for the time being until RCS gets sick of me jocking his thread and he makes me start a new one

JBK's Multi Authored Story Outline
 
-Slow moving, Romero style zombies.  No sprinters
-The reason is never explained
-Destroying the brain is the only way they stay down.  Crawlers with no legs are real, burned up zombies are real, intetine spilling zombies are real etc etc
-If you are bit you do have a short amount of time to amputate an appendage before you succomb.  It is not automatic.  You have maybe 30 seconds or so to make that decision if it happens to prevent the zombification.
-Once someone is bitten they do not immediately become a zombie and the time frame differs for each occurence (which makes it easier to write about), but it is not instant and the shortest amount of time is maybe 6-7 hours or so, but can go days if the person has a strong immune system.
-No super powers for the people or the zombies.
-Realistic fictional characters are allowed, but no super heroes.  You can even meet up with a celebrity if you want and travel with them, but no iron man or Captain America.

-Try to keep the thread for story only and use this thread for discussion on the story.
-I will be using a hybrid journal format as well as a standard first person format, but feel free to use just journal or standard first person.  Feel free to interact within in the story ie if you are using journal only and someone else makes a journal entry (journal story for this will be the Morningstar Universe forum I am writing on right now so a 'journal entry will be a post on this site under that thread.  So everyone will see it and will be able to reply and react to it.  So when I make a 'journal entry' it will be as if I am posting to this site from wherever I am and when I make an entry as a standard first person story that is not known right away to the people checking the forum and using journal entries)

 

I hope I am not making this confusing, but I just basically want whoever posts in that thread to act as if the zpaw hits from the first post on and use the forum to post journal entries which are 'known' to all in the story and first person is just story telling.
 
Any questiones let me know.
 
And RCS what is your thread going to be called?

Did I somehow miss this starting over the weekend?  I don't see it anywhere and was hoping to participate.

I think RCS started a story, but I am not sure where it is yet either.  I am going to start a seperate story later this afternoon.

RCS liked my ideas, but decided to go a different direction.  I plan on trying to contribute to both.

K, I'm interested in both, just was a little worried I missed them somehow with a few of the comments I saw.  Thanks JBK.

Wait, are our stories going into separate threads or the same thread?

Well I do not want to speak for RCS, but I think he was thinkig of something different than what i was talking about.  I am going to put a story up and would like people to add to it because I love the idea.  RCS is doing the same thing I think, but his story is going to be a little different so the ideas do not mix.

I wanted to do a 'everyone on the forum who wants to write use one idea of as you write this the zpaw is happening all around you and everyone kind of agrees to meet up at a loaction'

RCS was doing more of a 'I am in the Army and in a squad and you guys can add to my story' or something like that where it is more fiction not really based on this forum at all, but just using the forum to coordinate andput all the stories together.

Jesus, that is precise.  Only my story had nothing to do with army, Dillo's did.

And if anyone wants to continue what I was doing, go ahead.  I have some projects that pumped into my head as I was writing and I'm pulling out all the stops on it and don't want any distractions.

I started my little story called 'The Beginning'.  Any and all questions should be directed here until further notice.  The only thing I ask is if you are going to make it a journal type story for your part to copy and paste the header:

The Morningstar Saga

Infection/Destruction/Hope

 

Author                       Comment

(with your name here)  (and the date here)

 

This is basically being used to show that you ar eposting on this forum even though you are 'posting on this forum' already

 

lol

Im working on something for the thread JBK. Im gonna try not to shmuck it up too bad. For all intents and purposes the SHTF last monday as far as your story is concerned? If so my journal entry should be able to reflect that i read your journal entry and will be able to reference it in my own? Sorry if you already went over this and i didnt get it.

Yeah the journal entries are what 'you' see in your story.  That is why I kind of summed up what happened when I was not 'writing on this forum'. 

So I write a little on the forum,
Some shit goes down in 'RL' that I also write about, but do not 'post' and then later I summarize what happened in the 'RL' with a quick summary on here.

So yeah for the purposes of my story the ZPAW started about a week prior to my first post, but it just hit the fan in my area and I noticed it getting bad enough to bug out on the day of the first post. 

You can start your story any day really within this time frame, but it has to be AFTER my original post date because it is assumed you read that and even if nothing is happening in your area you realized something was wrong from that point forward.

Again have fun with it just keep it 'real'

Thanks for adding something Redneck!

Ok. Added my portion for what happened around Chicago. I left out details so as to not impede anybody's version of events in that area.

Let me know if you like.

One of the mods should pin "the beginning" story thread to the top of the fiction forum section.

Thanks.
