  • welcome to EAT THE CHILDREN! we are an advanced, no word count, friendly post-apocalyptic roleplaying community. ETC is set in the united states as a whole, so there is plenty of room for all shapes and sizes. there is also a main safezone set up by the government where the majority of the action happens. this site is character-driven, so we would love it for members to give ideas and to not be afraid to make suggestions. we hope you enjoy your stay and we hope you make this place your own.

    when registering, please do so with your character's first and last name (or their nickname) in all lowercase letters. ex. max brooks. please read all the provided material, as it was written for your benefit. if you have questions or concerns, feel free to ask in the cbox or post in the correct board. remember to be courteous and respectful and above all else, have fun!

    hello, i'm the mother of this little brainchild! i'm twenty-one and super cool i swear. just kidding i'm actually kind of a loser. when i'm not online, i'm probably at work or in class. i'm a psychology major, which can be either loads of fun or loads of work depending on the day. i love character plottage and if it's really good, i will be all over it. i love to read and i listen to weird indie music when i'm by myself. zombies are my passion - which is why this site exists. i spend far too much time scrolling my tumblr dash. i dunno, i'm friendly and i just love roleplaying. c:

    howdy ho, i'm bex! i'm seventeen and currently have no life. i tend to swear a lot, so if you're easily offended, i apologize in advance. i like music and creating five million characters old enough to be your character's dad or much older, estranged brother, with the occasional badass lady. i love to game and i survive off of my depressing caffeine addiction and my hella fast wifi. i'm often loud and pissy, but i hope it doesn't deter you. if i'm being an ass, please please tell me?

the zombies
ZOMBIE (zom•bie) n.
     1. an animated corpse that feeds on living human flesh.

TRANSFERENCE direct fluidic contact is the only way for the virus to be transferred. a bite from a zombie is most definitely fatal. once bitten, you are infected and there is no turning back. there is a chance of survival if you cut off the limb where the bite occurred, but this is not always successful. open wounds coming into contact with zombie flesh is known to also cause the virus to spread. so don’t get bit.

SYMPTOMS once a person has been bitten, the first thing that happens is the wound immediately begins to clot and turn a dark black/brown. in the coming hours, the skin will begin to yellow and the afflicted person will notice an intense itching and burning around the wound. following this, the victim will begin to lose their senses, most notably their sense of touch and the ability to feel pain. as they lose their senses, their ability to do basic things such as communicate and reason will falter. they will begin to lose their memories and show signs of dementia. flu-like symptoms begin soon after, including high fever, chills, coughing, and vomiting. as this occurs, the heart beat begins to slow, the body begins to numb completely, and the victim slowly becomes paralyzed. despite all of the victim’s other symptoms, all they care about is how hungry they are. when the heart beat slows to almost nothing, the person drops into a coma. and when they rise again, they’re nothing more than a host for the virus. it’s best to simply kill the victim before they reach the point of coma, as homicidal madness is sure to follow.

TREATMENT there is currently no vaccination for this virus.

INFECTED first and foremost, the infected are hungry. extremely hungry. nothing seems to satisfy their hunger more than human flesh, though they have been known to attack and kill other forms of life. they are attracted to movement, sound, and smell. no matter the level of decomposition, it appears as though they always know where the prey is. and where the living prey is, because the dead do not attack other dead things. there is no recorded evidence that the infected communicate with each other, although they do moan, which is heard by other infected in the area and they will come.

unlike many myths, zombies possess the same amount of brute force as normal human beings, though they possess much high amounts of stamina. the dead feel no pain, so they are not slowed by wounds. that is, unless you shoot them in the brain. although they have incredible stamina, they are not fast. in fact, they are rather slow compared to humans. they are uncoordinated and unsteady on their feet. they’re incapable of running, but as mentioned, they have incredible stamina so just remember that when you are running away from these ghouls. you will get tired before they do.

they do not think or remember their past life, so don’t think uncle joe isn’t going to eat you just because you’re his favorite niece/nephew. it has also been noted that these creatures do not need to breathe in order to live and therefore are capable of going under water for long periods of time without need for air.

APPEARANCE the dead are pale-skinned and often have the look of decomposing. they are often dressed in pajamas, hospital gowns, or some are even naked. they stumble around and are very uneasy on their feet. they have dilated pupils and because zombies do not produce tears, they get dust scratches on their eyes that cause the eyes to appear a little milky. it just goes so splendidly with the grey skin. their teeth are not sharpened, as the virus does not mutate the human body in most any other way except to make them crave human flesh.

DISPOSAL the only way to kill a zombie is to destroy the brain. severing the spinal cord will only cause the infected to be nothing more than a chopping mouth. once the zombie is dead, it’s best to burn the body. one should handle the corpse with extreme hazard, as the virus is still present inside the infected body. if you cannot burn the body, you should separate the head from the body, just as a precaution.
