I don't know if this has been done recently or at all, but I was thinking of starting a plague/infection scare RP that would encompass as much or as little of Europa as wanted to participate. Right now I'm contemplating something along the lines of an infected ship at one of Cabarria's ports, with an ambiguous/unknown country of origin. Or maybe someone at an airport. The disease would be a quick-killing hemhorragic fever or something similar. Where the plague originated, how it was created, how it is dealt with, and how it is cured is up to how things develop. It seems like it could be something interesting the whole community could participate in.

 

What are your thoughts?

This happened about four months ago, Tamurin had a alien virus outbreak that basically crippled his nation and forced several others into isolation. Eventually out of lack or interest, Tam used his 'space-shuttle' and found that space radiation killed the virus, and managed to stop it from spreading to the rest of Europa.

 

That is the explanation as to why said nations are no longer part of Europa.

 

But I think it's time we took some risks when it comes to our nations! Too long have we worried over fictional numbers and strength that is easily repaired in RP time. Besides, I think I can work this into an idea of mine.

I've recently read the book World War Zed (or Zee for you Americans): An Oral History of the Zombie War. Apart from being a very excellent read, detailing everything from the actions and plans taken by governments, individual surivors' accounts and huge cock-ups (at one point, the US Army decides to take on a massive zombie horde using conventional tactics and gets mauled), it's given me random ideas as to how Tagmatium would cope. Admittedly, it'd be a region-changing event and definately change the face of the region if it was on the scale of the book, but it's a bit of an idea.

Damn... I wanna read that book, Tag. I got a kick out of the Zombie Survival Guide. Unfortunately, I couldn't find WWZ to download. Buying it is out of question, for endless money-related reasons. Although a RP of it would be too far-fetched... and if you people did that, I'd have a Redeker plan ready :B

Well, I personally believe that we should be having wars or mass starvation. But since it seems that you're really into this idea, why don't we make a list of all diseases that plague or have plagued Europa? With symptoms, origins, body count, effects, and the like... for example, is there such a thing as AIDS in Europa? What about Malaria, Dengue, Elephantiasis and other mosquito related illnesses? Did we ever had an outbreak of Bubonic plague?

 

So, let's think about making such a list. And then, we could (or should would be more like it) make a deadly addition to it.

I would assume for the sake of simplicity the disease history of Europa would be similar to that of Earth - a massive flu pandemic decades ago, a plague outbreak centuries ago, and Tam's alien virus not too long ago, maybe a few years ago in RP time.

 

What I'm suggesting for the culprit this time would be a fast-acting hemhorragic fever similar to the Ebola or Marburg viruses.

Sounds like the most awesome book ever.

what sort of zombies are we talking bout? We talking about dawn of the dead style zombies? slow moving, and stiff? or are we talking about 28 days later zombies? super fast, super strong, and infectious? Or how about a smart virus? where say? a virus infects people, they then turn into some wired creature, but are smat, nd can use weapons and things, and have orginsational skill but are controled but a giant smart zombie? r why not have cool aliens land, and we have to fight them off?

Which is a decidedly mixed bag of good and bad.

 

It's good cause you can outrun them, but bad because of the sheer amount of them.

 

At least with the fast zombies you only have to deal with a small pack of them, and have a greater chance of losing them if you're in shape.

 

I'd rather do the zombie thing, but for a more realistic virus it could be something that attacks the hyperthallmus gland, causing a rapid increase of body temperature until the body dies from overheating.

I'm willing to modify my original proposal - zombies could be fun. biggrin.gif Plus a virus outbreak was done not that long ago. Cabarria doesn't need to be culled too much, but a zombie threat could cause serious civil disorder, for sure. How would this emerge on a global scale? Could we somehow use the original idea of something showing up at an airport or seaport?

I'm up for this. biggrin.gif, why not have regional veriants of the desiseas? Like diffrent effects after diffrent exposures, and say adaptation? How about we have it spead resident evil style, with a bilogical warfare virus that goes wrong? Perhapse two of our nations goto war, the biological agent is used on a large scale, but goes horribly wrong?
