Playing a lot of Left 4 Dead recently coupled with Jacob's roleplay(s) have given me a little idea.
If Jacob will let me, I was thinking of having a small group of citizens/pdf stuck in a zombie-infested city on Augustin IV and chronicling their struggle to escape and get evacuated back to an Imperial-controlled safe area.
This'll probably be one which is very survival-oriented and involve more running than fighting (unless you manage to find decent weapons anyway) and lots and lots of zombies. Lots.
So, what do you all think?

I like it (love it more like) I have written a similar one in the fact it's a survival one but it's more defensive
anyway do this one jacobus

A couple of people! That's a good start. Ideally I'd like four of you, just like in the games :P

SO why not write how we will perform this roleplay?

Excellent, I have the four vict- *ahem* volunteers I need. Soonish I'll get a rollcall thread up for the usual reason and with a bit of an explanation of what is acceptable in terms of character design (e.g. normal people and no heavy weapons).

Hehe...we had zombies in a 40k game once o.o
An 'orbital strike' hit a guys dead pile, and the staff memeber said this meant they turned into 4 zombies o.o who then went on to take an objective that won the game...

Now that is rather interesting. I remember me and a friend statted some homebrew rules for plague zombies in Inquisitor and basically had to fight our way through a horde of them to reach an Imperial outpost.
There was an incident with my veteran with his meltagun, storage silos full of promethium, and a lot of zombies as I recall. There was lots of fire.

it could start off with a soldier who has been affected and tthe virus spreads to the doctor and rest of field hospital

Nope, sorry there. You're just regular citizens who're for some reason immune to the zombie plague virus. Check the rollcall; stuff's up there already.

ok but perhaps we should say one thing: You are a veteran guardsman, the only veteran of the lot and you have to save us by teaching us how to fire a gun and load a gun while being atttacked by zombies
