The Set Up
May 5th 2018 (AUTUMN)

All the adults have now perished to this horrifying virus and the children are alone in the world. With electricity barely working and the wifi gone, everyone is trapped in their own bubbles. This perspective of their now tragical life takes place in a small country town . No more than 1000 lived there before the virus. Now only around 50 children left.

In this town there are limited shops. A small clothes shop, a hairdressers, a bar, a post office, and a small grocery store all beside each other. There is also a small gas station on the outskirts of town. A playground only 5 minutes walk from that and a primary school opposite. The highschool on the other side of town. Near the town run spaced out houses all having acres of land and farm animals habitating some.

The closest city is a day’s walk if no rest is taken. This country town is quiet and peaceful for the time being, compared to the chaos and destruction in the city that started as the adults started dying.

It’s survival time. Now everyone scared for their safety and their ability to sustain their own life the children have all agreed to have a meeting at the highschool to discuss their current situations and what boundaries need to be put in place. Is everyone willing to work together or is it their world now?

Can Corin be the leader he needs to be to keep the town from becoming like the dangerous places they seem to blissfully ignore outside their small town? Join the fun and find out!

Thank god for that, scrolling to find what I actually wrote it a pain hahaha

Omg AHAHAH yeahh it’s a drag

I’ll post mine in a sec

Meaning our extended profiles? Or am I missing something? Lol

THE SEASONS:
Summer: Dec-Feb
Autumn:March-May (We started on May 5)
Winter: Jun-August (Jun 1=Winter)
Spring:Sept-Nov

The time is currently the last day of May. I imagine they had a late Harvest trying to get everything together and salvage as much crops as could be. Winter is hard pressed upon them and they haven’t gotten much together.

Soooo I want to open the forum to discuss the jump into Winter! What are your ideas? Let’s plot together lovelies :blush:

I’m thinking the power should cut soon. Any opinions on that? :grin:

2 Likes

YES! That was my thought too. It’d definitely make for some fun Winter posts. Everyone has been loving nice and cushy. I mean they’ve probably had some blackouts right or rolling electrical issues but now it’s tome to take away that security :smiling_imp:

I was going to ask how long before that happens. Make it better @Eagle they lose power the first time it snows

Yeah I think the power should come off and on a few times before it goes all together. Sorry is that you what you’re saying @Flamekeeper

I was saying I’m sure that has already been happening since the adults died. But I agree with you too

Also at work but will post when I get off

Ahhh okay.

since we lost the power we need to warm up everyone, which means we need wood. i guess thats a good job for the men and maybe a good chance for us to let a few people move in together

but we will do the harvest dinner after all?

Oooh that’s a good idea

What is everyone thinking about when the power should completely cut?

1 Like

honestly i thought it is cut off since the adults are death… i mean… who should keep it running ? at least the biggest part

thats why Devon as a shower with a fire place :wink: who wants warm water, need to cook it first

Sabrina stated in one of her earliest posts of the rp that the electricity was still running, just barely. So I’ve been going off of that thought.

It’d be perfect during say a storm for it to completely go caput, kicking the town into gear on some of those things they discussed in the meetings Corin has held.

Also if you guys don’t want a Harvest dinner, that’s cool. I was just trying to get us going again :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

ähm… i have asked about the dinner, because i would like to do it… but i will follow the crowd

Harvest dinner sounds good!

Also with the power. In my opinion I don’t think anything should cause it. I feel like it’s more likely for the power would just got out randomly but if we want it to happen after a storm that’s cool as well.

My thoughts are it happens just in the 2nd week of winter where it’s already cold and getting colder and people are taken off guard :slight_smile:

good plan…………

One last thing. Should we give the town and the city actual names? They were based off real places (somewhere I used to live when I was younger ahaha)
