LDZA, A tale of five DayZ Survivors

Welcome Yaks, to a project that has been mulled over for quite some time, but is now just around the corner! @Ardavion @Biggle_Bear @radulykan and @horuswaspretty and myself have all found ourselves in the very fictional town of New Durham, just as the zombré apocalypse has broken out! But as we watch the carnage unfold, we make the most of what our fictional selves have got, and gather up those around us, lucky enough to make it through those first days!

We will be meeting up, non fictionally, at the end of February next year, to battle it out and hopfully see our little guys make it through the first few months of the Invasion of the dead! We are going to be using the rules:Last Days Zombie Apocalypse, and in particular, the supplement Chaos Theory, which means or starting teams have all been randomly rolled, including the leaders (who will be representing ourselves).

These have already been created, along with personality traits (which will be revealed), and what I’d like to ask all my Yaktribe brethren, is for them to join in by Simply sselecting a crew to join, and a survivor they’d like to be! My hope is that some of you will take eachother out and/or become zombies! 😁

Eventually I’ll move this thread to the Events forum, but while we are making the minis i figure this is a better place to post.
But best of all, is that Ardavion has an awesome shopping Mall that he will be putting together for the occasion!

I hope you enjoy our efforts, and I hope to see you on my team! The Mall shall be ours!

“Are we allowed to reveal the crew lore”
You’re not, not allowed to, but I’d suggest we wait till either closer to the time, or until our roster is full! (in support of the chaos theory)

@ClockworkOrange and @MedMos, your names have been locked in and your personal Nakuru quirks have been added! Welcome to the apocalypse!
 
Are dogs equipment or characters? Could I be @Ardavion's dog?

Failing that - Cop with a Magnum (assuming gun but will settle for ice cream).
You are certainly the dog now! (he is actually my favourite character we rolled!)
As a note, one of Ardavion’s boys is the handler, so you could end up being someone’s automatic best friend!
 
No idea what’s going on, but I think I’d like to be @radulykan ’s rescue worker.
The short version of what I spent ages writing last night, is that you are now a former rescue worker who seeks retribution and is a crazed introvert! You have survived the first few days of the outbreak and have found shelter in the local shopping mall with a bunch of good guys, lead by the ultimate nice guy Radulykan!
A mini will be made to represent you, and mini you will be playing in a mini campaign at the end of February!
All you need to do now is sit back and enjoy, but if you want to influence your guy, just drop some hints at Rad!

So it’s a bit like when “I” joined Fumblemore’s frostgrave warband? Gotcha.
 
Any ideas @radulykan ? Based on the Captain’s blurb, I’m thinking he was working an accident caused by the early stages of the zombie apocalypse, when the victims he was rescuing turned and slaughtered his team, which also happened to be his closest friends. He didn’t have many, and they were the best he’d ever had. Now all he want to do is kill zombies to avenge his friends. He doesn’t like working with strangers, but has realized that it’s his best chance for survival. He doesn’t say much of anything, preferring to spend downtime dreaming up scenarios where he helps save people and ends this plague. Your best chance to get anything out of him is to text, even if you’re in the same room.
 
@Biggle_Bear: I'd like to submit my burglar rap sheet aka resume:
  • Cleaned out Doo Run Run Porta Potty Services
    • Field Service Technician and backup janitor for the office trailer
    • Haven't had to buy any hand sanitizer the last three years if you know what I'm saying...
  • Facilitated the Great McRib heist after casing local McDonalds
    • Forgot to bring in the boxes when unloading the supply delivery
  • Et cetera et cetera

Works for me, I’m hopefully going to dig out all the models I bought for last days when it came out and see what I’ve got, need to read the rules again to see how the character traits will pan out in game, not sure if retribution is against zombies or other groups.
Any thoughts on model looks? And any preferences on what sort of club you’re swinging around?

Dear ms./mr. @Pagumb ,

Thank you your application for this position. We feel that you are an ideal candidate to our family at the county jail. Most remarkably for your experience in the hand sanitizer and food fields. Both valuable assets in this post apocalypse economical climate.

Therefore we wish to offer you the position of residential inmate. Valuable experience points await you.

Yours sincerely,

The guy who was running this place before Biggle Bear took over.

I haven’t seen the mini line, so I don’t know if there are separate heads, but someone with a kind of Tolkien Dwarf look would be nice. As for a club, I’d go for a bat or some type. Baseball or cricket, doesn’t matter.
 
@ClockworkOrange - he also has a big invisible orange target drawn on him now! 😄

@Punktaku - it’s almost exactly like Fumblemore (and me BB Orcs) except that this time I’m not hoping you do well! 😋

@Pagumb - your name has been added to the roster, your traits are: Wants to be a hero, but is defensive and carries a momento.
Going off your criminal record, they would have practically rolled the red carpet out for you at the police station!
