So, how would you like to be you, if the world were to end?

I imagine you wouldn't, at least not in a post-apocalyptic nightmare world. C'mon though, I know a bunch of you are raring to pit yourselves against the worst I have to offer.

A mystery plague with no logic to its effects. Mutations affecting those around you, seemingly without cause. Being one of the few humans left as survivors on a broken world that has become almost completely empty.

What happened? Are you alone? Are there others out there? Are there explanations? Will you have the opportunity to explore any of these questions when you're not spending your time surviving?

We'll see. Together. Because that's all that we can really do now, isn't it? It's just you, me, and us against the end of the world.

Bring your A game.

Game Description:

STORYOn the morning of January 20, 2008 the Cold War ended. Not because of peace or conquest, but for a very horrifying reason. Numbers are sketchy, but local communities estimate that on that fateful morning, almost everyone just... died. Instantly, with no suffering. No cause of death could be found, not that there was an extensive search during the mass hysteria following. A good many of those who hadn't died outright began to change, although many were driven off before these changes could threaten any of the survivors. The rest of the world was left to take what was left and try to survive.

GAME MASTERI'm Aiden. I've been doing a fair bit of PC gaming on here, mostly with D&D 3.5e, but I've been branching out with Star Wars Saga and d20. I've DMed a bunch of games in real life, and am looking forward to DMing something interesting on here too! Looking forward to working with some awesome players! :3

CHARACTER CREATIONBooks Permitted: d20 Modern, d20 Apocalypse
Books Tentatively Permitted: d20 Future, d20 Weapons Locker
Level: 1 - You've been a survivor for a little while, maybe a year. You live in what now passes for the city of New Arconia, which is essentially in a physical location similar to Arizona.
Ability Points: 6m5d6v2 or 35 point buy. If roll is below 35 point buy, use 35 point buy instead. You can swap out a higher point buy valued roll for a 35 point buy that you have control over, but no bonuses are received due to the high value of a roll.
Wealth: (4d10 + Wealth Bonus from Profession) * 2 TUs (Must all be spent at character creation or lost. Please familiarize yourself with the TU system in d20 Apocalypse.)
HP: Full HP at Level 1.
Technology Level: Effectively PL 5

- Any equipment that would be considered Military grade in the d20 System is not permitted at first level, nor are heavy weapons.
- Cash is mildly flexible if you can make a case for it. If you want a car but don't have enough cash to afford it, I will touch base with you on this and figure stuff out.
- Windfall is not permitted. The Profession skill has no effect in this world. Characters do not gain wealth increases at level-up.
- I'm very much against Mutations at this point, at least at first level.
- I have no intention of including mystical powers of any kind at this stage.
- I'm open to a lot of things, if even for the sake of character, just ask first. As things need to be added to the game description, I will add them.
- Please keep in mind that the more I have to work to believe that your character is an average person who just happened to survive the disaster, the less likely you are to be accepted. Keep this in mind with all aspects of the character, including what they posess, how they act, and what powers they have.

Interested, though I want to wait and see what other people plan on going for before I come up with a character.

Cool. I've been wanting to play in a D20 Modern game again. Any thoughts on a ex-military, hunter type? He'll have a smallish arsenal (rifle, shotgun, different handguns, etc) and a pickup truck. Well, he will if the Wealth rolls cooperate...

For reference, I'm interested in doing a Dedicated, which is definitely going to the Field Medic.

Aiden: Can we use other resources aside from Apocalypse? The particular item that I want is the Class Plus feats from Future, and since it has been given the OGL stamp, you can find them here. Basically, they grant two additional talents from your base class, but they have to be from the list given and not from the same talent tree.

PS: There are also lots of other resources that can be used from the OGL if you don't have a lot of books, if we are careful to pick ones that doesn't involve FX or advanced technologies (because of the setting).

I have to go till Sun. I'll think about what I want and put an application in then. Because I won't be on the net till then, it might conflict with several ideas posted. Fast/Dedicated/Tough/Charismatic, one of those 4 with some medical skills somewhere in there.

I'm not understanding the bonus to the wealth roll, could someone explain (is it just the occupation bonus?) Say your occupation bonus is +2. So is it= 4d10+2= x. Then take x*2 to get the TU's? (ie. 4d10+2=23. 23x2=46. 46 TU's?)

That looks about right.

Solar: Do you wish to make a full-time medic too, or just dabbling in medical related skills? I could fall back to my usual egghead routine if you want.

No dice rolling in the ad forum thanks
