1. Fine, if you want to make it easy
2. D: Nuuuu! Okay, so it creates a draft of wind and avoids the foe or just doesn’t work on foes. Better?

*narrows eyes* I’ll be watching, nerf bat ready.

just doesn’t work on foes

This is better. Your power is yours to control, after all; you can make it specifically affect or not affect any number of targets.

I call it the nerf gun.

According to TV Tropes, the word “nerf” originates from the Nerf foam bat.

Bell is accepted, I guess. Gonna finish Octavia soon?

Before we proceed further, some things need to be discussed.

It’s been about… half a day? One day at most? Since the monsters appeared. And the city is already in pretty much complete chaos. But the people living in the city are not stupid. Realistically, what would they do in a situation like this? What would the city council and mayor do? What would the TV and radio stations do? How long will it take before the higher-ups, e.g. provincial and federal governments, know what’s going on? What will the higher-ups do? Note that since I’ve decided that we’re all in Vancouver, this is no longer USA but Canada; hence provincial government.

If things got this bad already, I think it’s likely that the mayor tries to broadcast to his citizens to not panic, but he gets killed by monsters on TV where everyone sees; hence mass panic and chaos. Vancouver is not the only city infested by monsters either. By the time the federal government sends in, say, the army, the monsters here will have already evolved to become so powerful that the army will be no match without superpowers.

Do you guys have any suggestions? I want to make the situation as realistic as possible, and I can’t do it by myself. I need your help. Like, give me a list of which structures and organizations and services in the city would be disrupted or destroyed, and which ones would be still functioning, at the moment.

Another thing, not as important, is that I assume you people don’t go to the same school as my characters (James Hawking, Rina Adams, Keith Maxwell, Sara Okazaki, Tyler Grayson, Janet Maxwell). They’re very popular in their school, and almost all the students know their band; they perform in all the school events and such. If you don’t recognize them, you probably aren’t in their school. They post their renditions of popular songs on YouTube (50% Vocaloid, 20% J-pop, 30% English mainstream pop) and have a little fanbase, but it’s probably not big enough that some other player characters are in it. Unless you want to, of course.

I suggest, for some realistic ideas, that you play Pandemic II on Realistic Mode.

This should be brodcasted nationally and internationally, partially so I can see all of Madagascar freak out, and to see if other countries are going to have the monsters.

If you bring the army, wouldn’t we have to fight them?

Is everyone going to think that the monsters are a virus?
If yes, docks should be closed.
[Is there a source of the monsters like the meteors?]

I’m guessing airports and ports would be shutting down, army would get sent in, in about a day or two electricity would get shut down, in about four no more running water.

Army would be sent into big cities, smaller cities would be neglected and bet sent to hell. Now the cliche thing is that the army wants to kill everyone, infected or not, the cities would also be quarantined, no more in and out, first contact they’d attack us, you know considering we have powers, like the monsters.

Radio and TV would get shutdown. Anything big and not made to hold off a riot would be wrecked by the monsters. I’m guessing downtown is already gone to hell, the suburbs would be doing better, well look better, there’d still be a small amount of monsters running around.

Umm Where do you play the RP?

Thank you, A_S and Mark. Your suggestions will be taken into consideration. When I finally get in the mood to post again, that is.

Is there a source of the monsters like the meteors?

Some shady underground organization created the first monster, the one with the purple-black electricity and teleportation. That monster teleported all over the world and spread the infection everywhere.

If you read the first post, you’d already know.

For one thing, this isn’t a turn-based RPG. You can’t “do whatever for X turns”.

He can summon small animals for 10 turns to help him fight

Where do the animals come from? You can’t create them from nothing, because the biochemistry and stuff in animals are extremely complicated. You can’t teleport nearby animals to you either, because there are no ways that the animals can prevent themselves from being summoned; no ability can be unavoidable like this.

What is “an object”? Vaguely defined powers like this can be very easily abused.

If you read the signup sheet carefully enough, you would know why this wouldn’t work.

I’m sorry, but, well… I’d really prefer if people playing my games can use proper grammar, punctuations, and spelling. It doesn’t have to be absolutely perfect, but it should be at least easy to read.

 
Flag Post

i apoligize for that so should i take it as a no
if so thanks for considering me

There’s nothing wrong other than your grammar. If you can fix that, I’ll accept you.

Shandys is accepted. Try not to fry any important electronic equipments if you ever go to the makeshift underground bunker I have yet to introduce.

Good, where should I start?

(Major letdown on Fry was chemical lights, maybe you can take that idea to prevent me from frying too much stuff.)

Underground bunker? This is game will be too realistic, damn me! I should melt the whole bunker down so we can kill zombies all day. Mwhahaha.
