  • 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?

how long has it been since the apocalypse?
well, it's been about two and a half years since the zombies got up and started to walk around.

how were the safe zones able to be built so quickly?
funny you ask, because a lot of people ask that. but honestly, the government probably knew what was happening. but honestly, they used old baseball stadiums, abandoned towns, that sort of thing. and just...fortified them to ensure nothing could get in.

are fast zombies possible?
although i am a fan of both max brooks and mira grant, i tried to keep closer to brooks because the zombies were somewhat more realistic. they are slow, but that doesn't mean anything. they run longer than people because they don't get tired. their body stops going before they do, if you can get the meaning. so no, fast zombies are not possible.

can i play a zombie?
honestly, no. as much fun as that might be, this is strictly for characters who are alive. however, we will be having a disaster account in which zombie hoards can interrupt threads and such. how fun is that, right?

why are automatic weapons not allowed? i really wanted a street sweeper.
first off, fully automatic weapons are not allowed in the us, and therefore the number of them will be therein lacking. so unless your character illegally acquired one, we'll just say for the sake of the argument that there are none. because it's easier.

will the disaster event interrupted a tagged thread?
it is entirely possible! however, if you are really opposed, you can speak to staff and we can make sure your thread is not touched. this account is meant as a bit of fun and since disaster always strikes at the worst times, you never know when it'll hit, right?
