This is YOU EB:
One of the last HUMAN survivors following the event known only as "The Cataclysm!". Since this mysterious event, Earths's size is only a quater that of which it used to be. The population is largely that of "The Swarm", a mix of mutants, monsters and horror which prowl the desolate wasteland in search of live flesh.
You, EB members, and your fellow teammate, have built this shelter as a way of survival. It lies in a bad place, just on the edge of the barren desert, where the monsters lie, and on the path of The Swarm. Here it is, being attacked by the swarm:
A shot of it without The Swarm during a hot dusty day. I love the red haze in this one:
Here is the inside. You have two chicken wings (or are they? X-D ) for food and green water for drinking. Your weapons are sparse. You have a brown shotgun, rifle, brown spear, binoculars, shovel and backpack.
Here is the living suite:
A shot of the one-man bed you have to share:
Here is your Quad, which is armoured enough to survive intact outside the base:
An ex-team member who had to be killed by you after he went mad:
Maybe this place wasn't always a desert? :
A shot of it without the red sky and The Swarm:
This is your transport, a one man (though a second can hitch a ride uncomfortably) heavy quadbike.
Now for The Swarm. The first type of creature is the most common of The Swarm:
The undead. They are relatively easy to kill as their bones are very brittle and a few strikes or shots to the head will kill them:
The Zombies. They also common, though slightly less so. They are harder to kill, and are unaware of pain. Luckily, they are the slowest and stupidest of The Swarm:
The Abominations. Little are known of these. They are rare, or as rare as something can be in something as large as The Swarm. They are an entirely new creature, possibly spawned from humans, or animals, but are always humanoid in appearance. They are usually faster than the other Swarm creatures, and are usually strong:
The Mutants. These were once humans who were mutated in appearance and mentally. They are by far the most intelligent of The Swarm, and their minds have been warped to the point where they are the epitome of evil. The sad thing is, they have no craving for human flesh, but are continuing the onslaught because they want to. Despit being intelligent, their twisted faces are incapable of speech, but some are gifted with certain powers, like telepathy and pyrokineses:
Now for the monsters that are in The Swarm:
The Djander Bird. This deceptively cute creature has a poison beak that, once injected into you, will slowly destroy your nervous system in a way that causes more pain than imaginable. One man that somehow survived died three days later of starvation, he wouldn't move, for fear of pain:
The Squent. This spiky monstrosity is the cause of many deaths from its poison stinger, mauling attacks, and sharp barbs. It is semi-common, and though not entirely ferocious, is very much feared by survivors:
The Weaver. This creature is only known to attack when provoked but still tends to hang around The Swarm. The tail shoots a deadly spike with enough force to go straight through you. Some have been tamed by survivors, and one day you might get this chance for an extra defense:
The Monsters are the last part, and are not in The Swarm but instead roam the desert, mountains and canyons. Very few who have seen them have survived, and those that have are usually incoherent or driven mad by the traumitising experience. (note: the Dino Attack dino below is not a monster, just a teaser, as I haven't built one yet ;-) )
Lastly, a couple of cool last shots:
And the gallery:
Hope you enjoyed, the interactive first part will be posted next week sometime, where you EBers will decide the characters fate by voting what he should do! Again thanks for Hinckley for the permission to do this! *sweet*
Comments and Constructive Criticism appreciated. And if you have any questions regarding this post-apoc world, or the interactive parts to come, just post them and I will answer :-)
Clearly as the Batmobile has morphed into a Brickmobile! >:-)
