What is it about you that makes the group want to keep you? What is it about you that would make the group kick you out?


Good: I have some medical knowledge and I'm a grief therapist IRL, so I suppose once we are settled and out of danger I would be helpful! Also, I am pretty strong for my size. I build computers for a hobby so I might be able to be mechanical. 


Bad: I eat a lot and get really tired and sick if I don't eat regularly. I get lost really easily and can never figure out where the fuck I'm going. I honestly think if I were to lose all my close family I would just off myself. I think this makes me unwilling to cooperate with strangers.

    Well, thanks to my job I've got good tactical experience and hand-to-hand training.  I'm a wizard with a handgun and a shotgun.  I can drive like nobody's business, and can change tires/oil and boost a car.  I'm used to making snap decisions and acting on them quickly (which can be a pro or a con, depending).  I also have a compound bow, and I'm not squeamish unless it's my own blood, so I can be your nurse, @larrygaga.

    Cons: I get hangry - and I'm the type to peace out and go my own way if I literally can't even with something or someone.

    Good: I'm a great shot and good at cooking over a fire.

    Bad: I get hangry, have no sense of direction, and am a terrible runner.

    I'm an archer.  I have two recurve bows and a couple dozen arrows - not hunting arrows, but very sharp metal ones, not blunt tip.  I also have a lot of leadership experience in emergency situations; I can shelter and feed several hundred people with minimal resources if necessary.

    On the other hand, despite being an archer I'm not a hunter and I have no idea how to skin and butcher animals.  I'm willing to shoot animals if I have to, but someone else is going to have to know how to make the carcasses edible.

    Ah.  I gotcha on that one.  My dad used to be a butcher.  I know what to do with meat.

    We're gonna have a food problem, you guys. I'm a hangry bitch, too.

    I can shoot a gun, have very good hand eye coordination, have excellent aim and speed when throwing things. I function very well under pressure. I can cook. I am not grossed out by blood and shit and bodily functions. I am an excellent leader in terms of taking control of a task, delegating etc. but might not be the best at keeping morale up. I function highly on adrenaline and don't need a lot of sleep.


    I can be very my way or the highway. I need you to follow fucking orders or I just can't. I don't do well with people who get all weepy and freak out when serious stuff needs to be dealt with. ETA: I do NOT have patience. I do when I need to focus and fire a weapon but I am super impatient with people generally.

    Awesome, hunting party!

    I can shoot a gun and a bow, can also clean and reload said gun. I'm a decent sot with the NRA medals to prove it. I can change tires, keep a level head in a crisis. I have lots of medical knowledge including medicinal plants, and understand human psychology which would help when dealing with a bunch of scared, desperate people. I'm not squeamish about butchering animals, and I have one of those stoves that charges electronics as it burns, so there's that. 

    H and I also have an arsenal of guns, knives, bullets, and tactical and survival gear. Not a crazy tv show worthy amount, and I swear we aren't crazy people, but we're prepared for any general emergency JIC.

    Okay, we have a lot of fighters.


    Does anyone know how to make shelter from nothing or do laundry with nothing? How do we get toilet paper? All this meat will make us shit bricks.

    One time on a trip I was kayaking and camping. It was my first time pitching a tent. There were about 20 tents within our group. Some rando storm hit that night. My tent was the only one still standing and dry inside at the end of the storm/in the morning. Honestly I think this was mostly luck but I am proud none the less. Also, TP is a non-necessity as long as we have water. Fuck. I live in a waterless place. How will we get water?
  • Options
    I can make shelter and have a knack for finding water! And you use leaves for tp. Just not poison ivy- which I hope we all know how to spot.

    If I don't die first because I'm a silly little princess who worries about a chipped nail, I can make us huge pots of food so you can all go fight to save my little butt.

    I'm pretty useless. I suppose I'd be useful for keeping around just to have a straggler to distract the zombies. If I get away awesome, if not everyone else gets away?

    I really, really do not want to have to go through a zombie apocalypse.

    I can change a tire, but I don't think that in and of itself makes me useful.

    I do not believe this is true. You are rad and your presence would be welcome. You must have SOME skill in life, no? Doesn't have to be weaponry and bad-assery.

    ...I can bring comedic relief to the party? Oooh, and I always have a bunch of lighters. So fires are not a prob, Bob.

    On the other hand, I don't run, I can't shoot, I'm not good with the shelter building.

    Probably you're just best off shooting me and stealing all my lighters.

    If you head my way I know the lock combinations to all of the RC storage facilities in the county, so we're covered for blankets and cots (no pillows though).  I don't suggest anybody ask me what plant to wipe their ass with; I'm not allergic to poison oak/ivy and don't remember what it looks like.



  • Options
    Um... I suppose I could write about the whole happening if I survived, but I dunno who would be around to read it?

    I do make pretty mean stews, soups, and curries, which are awesome for stretching food about as far as it'll go, but I can't say I've ever tried cooking them on a fire.

    I can't sew properly, like MAKE clothes or anything, but I could stitch up split seams and raggedy hems and such. Might be useful for not getting snagged on stuff.

    I have an almost perfect memory for movie scenes and stand-up comedy bits, so I could entertain people I guess.

    I would probably be a danger to have around though because I have a weakened immune system. I'm not dying or anything, but it's pretty much a sure-fire thing that if there's a bug going around, I'll get sick. I'm also highly suggestible, so I'll probably think I'm infected even if I'm not.

    Oh, and I also make soap!  But I don't want to be in charge of laundry.



  • Options
    I have a cool head and I'm pretty good at staying rational and taking control in tough situations.  I'm a good cook and I can make beans and other canned things taste really good.  I play the violin so I can entertain everybody with music even sans electricity.  I can help write the laws of our new society!

    But I don't have too many outdoor hunting and survival skills.  I also have a pretty weak immune system and I'm always catching stuff, so Fi says if there's ever a zombie apocalypse he's locking me in the house with plastic on all the windows.

    Good: I can be a good leader or a follower. If someone steps up and isn't a moron, I have no problem taking direction. If nobody has a clue, I can take charge. I also have Xanax if anyone needs it.

    Bad: I have anxiety, and I can be a bit of a spazz.
  • Options

    As I mentioned in my other thread, I could infiltrate the system and use diversionary tactics. My degree is in criminal justice and psychology, so I know how to shoot a gun (I don't like to, but will if necessary) and can manipulate them. I'm a good driver and my parents have a legit safe room in their house with ammo and dry goods. They also live on a lake and have a boat. Headquarters procured.

    On the downside, I REALLY suck at directions. I'm convinced Google hates me because sometimes the map doesn't even work. It always tries to get me to drive through the ghetto. So we may get lost on the way to my parent's house...

    Interesting thread.

    Good: I'm a decent cook. I can sew. Literally all my mom's uncles were in the military and have been teaching me (and the rest of my cousins)gun and knife skills since we were about 14 so I'm a decent shot with a gun but a better one with a knife. Also I took an ancient weapons class in college ... Idk it might come in handy.

    Bad: another hangry bitch here. I'm a bit klutzy. And I feel guilty when I have to kill things. That sounds kind of bad but I mean I feel kind of guilty when I kill spiders and stuff.
  • Options
    I'm mad my house is scribbled out, but yeah. Nailed it. +trunk full of guns.

    Me bringing H along will probably be my greatest strength. He has a construction background, is really strong, and his family owns a farm. He'll let us have all the alcohol and keep camp really tidy.

    Good: tons of camping supplies (tents, air mattresses, cooking stuff, a solar shower, etc...), guns and ammo, a 4wd truck and 4wd SUV....if we could make it to the beach, I'd take to the ocean to get away from the zombies.

    Bad: I would probably be really emotional.  Also, I'm far, far away from all the northern knotties.  But if y'all come here, I can probably save us ;)
