The Way It Was
-The Last Of Us Role Playing Game
This game is intended for mature audiences
Scientists still struggle to understand the strange fungal infection that is spreading across the south. Admittance lines outside the Lake Pointe Medical Center in Rowlett, Texas stretch around the hospital. The President of the United States has ordered the National Guard to cities across the southern states to quell riots breaking out among tense citizens waiting days to see a Doctor.
Living away from the major cities, you have ignored the paranoia and fear revolving around the pandemic. Ywake up on a brisk Saturday morning. The family is home, school is out, and autumn is just dawning across the neighborhood. The annual end of summer barbecue is in full swing.
The hum of planes flying overhead, Sunday promises a memorable football. The scent of burning pork slung on the rack of a well worn grill. This is what you live for.
One peaceful day. Your last day with a clean conscience.
You will be The Last Of Us. You will be burdened by each choice you make. Everyone has a family. And in every family, we are bound by the secrets we keep, especially the ones we keep from each other. As the infection inevitably takes hold across the nation, your secrets and your lives will unravel.
You will shape this world, you will come to lead resistances, or descend into madness. Every choice you make will have irreversible consequences. If you want to survive, you’ll have to find a new way to live.
No knowledge of the critically acclaimed survival game is required to play in this RPG. This is a world of our own design, the players are the stars and protagonists.
I will begin the game when I feel we have enough players. You will live in a house on Arden Court, in Rowlett, Texas. The game starts during the day, before the outbreak.
Major events in this RPG are split by Episodes. Much like a T.V. series or comic book. Before the start of a new Episode I will pause the game, post a recap, and then start the next Episode. New players are always welcome, and these recaps are an invitation to check us out, see what has happened, and know that they won't feel lost.
All approved character sheets will be linked here.
OOC & DISCUSSION THREAD
The Way It Was will be different from the game in several factors, but I won't spoil the fun for you.
