Your Home Town is under siege by the walking dead! A zombie virus from a nearby laboratory was accidentally released into the water supply, turning all of your friends and family members into flesh-starved walking corpses. You and several other random strangers must band together and survive long enough to be rescued by the military. Beware, though. One of the survivors in your group is responsible for the plague.

It's been a while since we've had a decent game of Wolves on this board, so I decided to make a game loosely based on the concept. The goal of the group is to survive long enough to reach the evacuation point that the military has setup in order to escape the city. Unlike your standard game of Wolves, you will NOT be voting for the execution of who you think the Mad Scientist might be. You're all going to be dying naturally, within the confines of the game mechanics. The only way to survive is to work together as a team. If you think someone is not trustworthy, all you have to do is leave them to their fate. The game will off them for you.

I'm still working on the concept and game mechanics, but anyone who is interested should sign up in while I work out what needs to be done.

Oh yes, this is a clever twist on Wolves. I'm so in.

Cool. That makes enough players to start fleshing the game out a bit more. Hoping for at least seven, so I'll need three more at minimum.

Alright, it looks like we're close to having ourselves a game. Still in the process of building up the concept and the system we're going to be using. Been sick the past couple of days so I haven't been able to put much thought into it until now. But I'm working at it. In-game time will take place over a few weeks. At the end of a set amount of time, the military will show up and rescue you all. In the mean time you'll need to find safe haven and procure supplies. I'll be keeping track of such things as sleep deprivation, water, food, and medical supplies.

In addition to all that, you might find it useful to collect and utilize any gear you come across. A hammer will go a long ways towards helping you bash in the skulls of hostile contacts (be they zombie, human, or fellow player) as opposed to swinging at them with just your fists. A backpack might also help you pick up and carry the supplies you'll be needing back to base. Some of you might start the game with useful things. Most of you won't. Whichever you might be, you'll still have to procure whatever it is you need from the environment around you.

Like I said, still a work in progress. I do, however, have a number of things already locked into place. Like any game of wolves, a fair few survivors will start with special perks or abilities that set them a cut above the rest. The Mad Scientist will also be getting all kinds of fun toys to play with.

*Shameless Bump*

Still need two more players. More, if possible. I expect at least a couple of you to die in the opening stages while you're still getting yourselves established and with the numbers we have now that'd make for a very dull game.

What with the arrival of weatherwax, we now have six players and something approaching an actual game!

Six people looks like about all we're gonna get. I'm gonna keep signups open for just a couple more days just in case anyone else wants to join. Expect the game to be up by Monday.
