Hello, prospective contestants, and welcome to the very first Walking Dead Online Reality Game and Role Playing Game a.k.a The Walking Dead ORG RPG. This game will allow contestants to enter the world of the Walking Dead and have a chance to portray a character from the Walking Dead. This will allow them to make their own path and decisions on what they would do in the Walking Dead apocalypse.
This game is a RPG in the sense that you guys are going to be writing your own role play of the famed TV and Comic Series: The Walking Dead. You will be able to take control of a character and write a great story with the rest of your fellow authors. However, this is also an ORG since it will involve eliminating people from the story. Just like the Walking Dead, characters are killed off by the dreaded zombies, killed by one of their fellow survivors, or possibly very simply like falling off a cliff, a disease, etc. How and when that might happen will be determined by your survival skills, your collaboration efforts in the game, and your ability to survive, claim power, and write a great story. At the end, only one of you will be left standing to claim the title of Award Winning Author and will use your writing skills to end up the sole survivor by the end of the story.
You will use your writing to create a good storyline for your character while also competing in challenges to make several determinations about the game.
EDITOR: Each week, there will a challenge where one of you will become a position known as the Editor. This person is going to be responsible for eliminating a player that week. An editor is allowed to make changes to the story and this will allow you to take control of the other characters when the time comes to eliminatea player. The Editor can change the story and will kill off one of the characters by the end of the Editor's Post. Your character dying in the story means you are out of the game. Once the Editor makes the Editor's Post, the characters will be sent back to their appropriate authors and the story will continue.
IMMUNITY: For the majority of the game, there will be an opportunity for players to remain safe from the dreaded power of the Editor. If you win immunity, your character cannot be killed off or controlled by the Editor. If you are hoping to keep a certain persona about your character and if you want to stay in the game. Immunity is the asnwer you are looking for.
This game can be about creating a great story and keeping your character in a desired position in the game. The Editor is free to do whatever they want no matter how the story is going so no character could ever really be safe or secure in the Walking Dead world. Similar to how the show and comic books are a character can be killed off at any time for any reason. It's up to you to keep yourself safe by doing whatever you must do to survive the world of the zombies.
SIGN UP RIGHT HERE. IT'S FIRST COME FIRST SERVED FOR THE CHARACTERS. WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PICK THE CHARACTER YOU WANT. BUT REMEMBER, IN THE END, IT'S NOT ABOUT WHAT CHARACTER YOU NECESSARILY HAVE, IT'S ABOUT WHETHER YOU HAVE THE SKILLS AND THE WIT TO KEEP YOUR CHARACTER SAFE WHEN THE TIME COMES FOR THE EDITOR TO STRIKE.
Good luck, and I hope that sign up is finished soon so we can get started.
PLEASE DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING YET FOR THE STORY. YOU CAN POST AN INTRODUCTION OF YOURSELF, WHY YOU LIKE THE WALKING DEAD, AND IF YOU CHOOSE, WHY YOU CHOSE THE CHARACTER YOU CHOSE.
