Starting Location: Camp with the other survivors. We are located in Northern Colorado in a forrested area about six miles outside of a small town. We are constantly on the move and bring only the things we need. One of us will hold a map of the area(we can totally make this up, which is much easier, if you guys wouldn't mind.)
Infection: All zombies are runners. Yes, all of them. Now, the upside to this is, they can go down like any human and have the same basic needs as us. Most have died off but some are definatly still a problem. So, in conclusion on the zeds, yes you can kill them other than headshots, just keep in mind they don't feel pain really anymore so its going to take more to stop them.
Military involvement: The military is gone folks.
Character Limitations: Weight is a big issue here. You will be carrying everything you want, so don't take useless stuff. You can carry up to forty pounds if your character weighs under 160lbs, fifty if under 200, max is 60 lbs and your character is gonna have to weigh quiet a bit, thus reducing mobility. Any issues, just ask, clothes don't count and if your rifle has a sling you may cut the weight in half, a pistol in a holster is 0 but the mags do count.
Firearm cost is $1800 for all guns and upgrades. You an use whatever you have left over plus a hundred for a melee weapon if you want one. Keep track of your ammo, it isn't infinite.
How you write out your character is up to you, I'm doing it how I always do. Just PM me if you have any questions.
