    Well, considering we might have different chapters, they could each be set in a different places.

    Or, we could each start in a different area, and meet up in a centeral area..

    Honestly, I think that part we could play by ear.

    Well I think we've got the meat of an idea going here, we just need to sort out location and setting to get things sorted out.


    multiple cities is good, although it does make character interaction difficult unless we go with transport, but in order not to invalidate the entire quarantine premise it will have to be severely limited

    Setting we just need to pick levels of technology and so on, how much fantasy aspects etc.





    What we could do, if we're going with a chapter structure to enable short form RPing is we could have a 'prologue' before the quanantine is in effect for the characters to unite in one place through whatever reasons draws them there, it also provides reason to travel in later chapters to return home looking for family and such.

    Since I already wrote mine into the city after the quarantine, I'll haveta figure out a way to get her out of the city. I think I can do that though.

    Reading over this thread at 2 AM, I have to admit that I'm a little confused as to what the central storytheme is going to be. Can someone provide me with a basic summary of what they want to happen?

    I know its been pretty much decided on, but just wanted to throw in that Westerns can work with fantasy. There is the Deadlands fantasy post apoc, steam-punk, tabletop RPG.
    And of course, Dark Tower.

    Just wanted add some support. ^.^
