I was there with friends and I guess they probably all died during the outbreak.
The viking clothes are fine, it's more fun that way. Your lame friends are infected.

I will post your character sheet, but what is your name?

Hi!

Maybe there were far slower far more panicky types that were eaten first, giving us cooler minded individuals our escape chance.

For bookkeeping purposes:

Will 12 costs [5] with IQ 11, and FP 12 costs [3], for a total cost of [8].

However, you can have Charisma 2 for the same price you paid for Charisma 1, to reflect the relative encounter rate of survivors vs. infected.

Likewise, Sav Fair (hi soc) and Diplomacy can be purchased at half price.

If it fits your character concept, have Courtesy Rank (Ren Queen) for free. It will likely never translate into any game effects, but who knows, maybe you all will rebuild civilization in the ren-fair's image!

What books are you using/should we be using? I realize there are some things from high tech, dungeon fantasy, and martial arts I'd like to use.

Brigitte should have [5] in Basic Speed to bring it up to 6.00 and her stats should only cost [80] not [100]. I also find it nice to have all the points labeled for book keeping proposes

First draft of Tim Roberts Knight Errant
The biggest problem I see is that anything that can hurt him will likely splat anyone else until we can get them well equipped too. And I'm not sure if zombies are smart enough to pull off his armor, though that might happen if let to their own devices for long enough after they overwhelm him. He is very slow without his trusty stead Bluejay. And kitted out as he is he can't really carry much in the way of mundane supplies.

All critiques, questions, and error pointing outing welcome.

Wow, I am a little scared by all the knowledge here. Well, by my lack of it to be exact. I guess I will let you guys start and try to follow as best as I can.

It's going to be fun, I really like that RenFest setting.

I'm sure you'll do fine. If you have questions ask. One of the nice things about pbp is that looking up rules doesn't really bog down play.

So Wolf I take it you've decided we'll be starting at the Renfest? Are we starting from when it first breaks out or more as we "crowd together, barricaded down for the night, asking each other the inevitable, "Well, what do we do now?"" So that we start the the game proper the second day of the zombie apocalypse or something else entirely? Looking back at the OP it looks like it wont be the very first few days. Or at least gives us an idea of what we can expect down the line; bloaters, screamers, and witches oh my! If it's the very first day and I'm geared up for the Renfest then my gear is pretty much done, if it's not than I'll want to be adding some additional gear.

If she is low ranking she probably doesn't qualify for the rank advantage. Just the fact she's military could be handy if we meet intact military though. At 34 she is young enough that she could of still recently joined the military I believe. Though I will add I don't think, from a realistic standpoint if that matters in a zombie game, as a foreign national she could hold an occupation requiring top secret clearance like I imagine intelligence would. She would be stuck with less sensitive jobs. Like a mechanic, chef, or phlebotomist.

Any books are fine. Since it is PBP, there is plenty of time for us to go flipping through the libraries :)

Also, for Brigitte, the point costs are actually correct, it is the values that are wrong :D
When I copy pasted, I apparently only changed the costs on the first line.

I shall repost.

I believe the full outbreak has been raging for atleast 2 weeks, but was labeled as rioting and terror attacks at first by media. Most people didn't pay attention until the infection was knocking at their doors.

The renny survivors have been trapped inside the fest for about 4-5 days, holed-up in a shipping container used as storage for food-stuffs. Sanitation is becoming a real issue, so it is time to make at least recon a route out of the fest.

"Surely if we can just get out of the fairgrounds, we will be fine."

Yeah, she is going to have to make a decision regarding her career. She could be a French soldier, assigned to UN, on some obscure mission in the US... or even here for training.

Or just drop the intel job, stay with the US Army and accept some other MOS. This option carries the complication that she will be "policed-up" if you all find a military unit.
