• Welcome back to Pokécharms! We've recently launched a new site and upgraded forums, so there may be a few teething issues as everything settles in. Please see our Relaunch FAQs for more information.

RERP! (Oh, excuse me.)

Raccoon City, September 24th, 1998.

At a home American football game, of which the Raccoon Sharks are playing against the Old Court Thunders, a single Zombie causes a riot to break out within the crowd and causes panic. Fifty Police officers are called to the scene.

You were there. In one second, you're screaming for your team, the next.. For your life. You somehow survive this single attack, and a few surviving police officers take you and a couple other survivors to the station. They say it will be safe here. They were wrong.

The rest is a secret

Obviously, this is going to be a Resident Evil RP. Rex and I developed the idea, and we will be determining the way the events unfold. It will span through a timeline of Resident Evil events from the 24th of September until the 1st of October. Rex and I will let members know through OUR posts when a day passes and we will show the dates. This will help everyone stay on the same timeline to avoid confusion. We will be avoiding canon characters and events, and will instead create our own.. obstacles.

You will have the choice to be any one of these categories: Low level Umbrella employee, Raccoon City Police Department rookie officer, civilian with any career of choice (as long as it's reasonable.) We MAY allow for S.W.A.T. or high level police officers from more experienced RPers.

Who is interested? Opinions?

Rex will be posting a timeline as well.

A timeline detailing events from the Raccoon City outbreak, running from September 22nd until October 1st. Unimportant events have been omitted. The timeline covers events seen in Resident Evils 2, 3: Nemesis, Outbreak, Outbreak: File #2, and The Umbrella Chronicles. We will be avoiding locations mentioned on the timeline for the dates that they are mentioned on as to avoid running into canon characters preforming canon events.

September 22
• HUNKs team find William Birkin. Due to a sudden noise, Birkin is accidentally shot down with an MP5, and his attaché case full of "t" and G-virus samples is taken.
• Unknown to his squad, Birkin has a sample on him, and injects it directly into his chest. The virus takes instant effect; he becomes his own creation and decimates Hunk’s team in the sewers back in the city. In the process, Birkin eats the remaining samples of G-virus, and shatters the t-Virus capsules. The biohazardous toxin flows into the city water system, and mutates the rats of the sewer, who then spread the virus into the city.
• Upon hearing of Birkin's assassination and mutation, widespread panic occurs in his Laboratory. Several MA-125R Hunter escape and run amok through the labs, killing several scientists before a researcher lowers the temperature, freezing them on the spot.
September 24

• The eight survivors of J's Bar separate during their escape, and some find themselves within the Apple Inn which is currently on fire due to a boiler explosion and a nearby tanker explosion. The other survivors will end up near a Zoo.
• Inside the towering inferno that is the Apple Inn, the survivors battle against swarms of zombies and find themselves attacked by the 'Regis Licker', a creature that kills its victims via its tongue. They defeat the Licker and escape into the streets outside, where they rendezvous with the other J’s Bar survivors. Outside, they are gathered together by the RPD who drive as many of the survivors to safety as possible.
• Three RPD officers, Elliot, Eric and Harry rig Raccoon Main to explode, as Eric finishes the wiring, the zombies storm the barricade and Elliot and Eric are killed. The J's Bar survivors arrive and with their help, detonate the bombs in Raccoon Main.

• Monica decides to use the Marshalling Yard train as an alternative, and steals Yoko Suzuki's ID card.
• Monica is attacked by William Birkin and impregnated with an embryo.

Jill is cured and the two escape to the "Dead Factory".

• Former Umbrella employee and University laboratory researcher Greg Muller releases the Thanatos Tyrant to halt any attempts by Umbrella's special forces to assassinate him. The team would be swiftly cut down by the B.O.W.. Greg would be killed shortly later however, as Nicholai completed another Monitor mission. The Tyrant would be killed from contact with the antidote, ironically made with its own blood. The civilians would escape after receiving help from the Raccoon Fire Department.
• Elsewhere, plumber David King and two other survivors enter an Umbrella facility looking for pharmaceutical supplies. He finds a lot more than he was expecting: A Tyrant programmed to defeat other B.O.W.s, and of course: Umbrella's official t-virus vaccine. The Tyrant would regain self-control and rebel, killing researcher Carter and wounding Linda, along with destroying the only sample. After escaping to the streets via the sewers, they would be attacked by Umbrella mercenary Arnold, ordered to kill the traitorous Security Service agent Rodriguez and retrieve a "package". The contents of the crate would be revealed after Umbrella businessman Tommy Nielson caused Rodriguez' helicopter to drop it. The creature, "Nyx" would prove to be the contents, killing the entire UBCS team sent to retrieve it and absorbing them into its body. The Tyrant too, would be absorbed, shortly before the creature put its eyes on the survivors. After a lengthy battle, the creature sustains enough damage to melt it, and the survivors abandon Raccoon in a HUMVEE used by the UBCS.
• Ada Wong escapes the Raccoon City Underground Research Facility by the sewers leading back into the city from the mountains. Ordered by Wesker to survive and deliver her G-virus sample at all costs, she retrieves a hook-shot from the corpse of her "contact" and uses it to escape the zombies. Reaching the highway, she is fought to defeat the Tyrant, which managed to survive its previous encounter with David King. Spotting a Helicopter ahead, she uses her new toy to hitch a ride, escaping the city with her mission successful.

Timeline was copied from the Resident Evil Wikia's larger timeline of events in 1998. Credit goes to them for compiling.

I've also arranged a few links to the things you would have to know if you want to join:
A civilian needs the least amount of info. Information about Raccoon City and the Umbrella Corporation are really the only things.
Low-Level Police:
http://residentevil.wikia.com/Special_T ... ue_Service
A regular police man, along with the Civilian's knowledge, needs to add knowledge of the Police Station itself, as well as S.T.A.R.S. and the Police Chief Brain Irons. Optionally, information about the S.T.A.R.S. members can be added to those who are dedicated.
High Level Police & SWAT:
http://residentevil.wikia.com/Special_T ... ue_Service
Along with everything else, High-Level Cops and SWAT officers need to know about the RPD's SWAT team. Information about S.T.A.R.S. personnel remains optional, along with information about other Police Officers.
Low Level Umbrella Researchers:
http://residentevil.wikia.com/Undergrou ... h_Facility
Umbrella Researchers have a small handful of things they need to know about. Along with the Civilian's knowledge of the city and Umbrella, they need to know about Dr. William Birkin, the T-Virus, and Birkin's Underground Lab. They also have the highest amount of optional knowledge under them, with the G-Virus, other Umbrella Employees, Nemesis, Zombies, the various B.O.W.s, the Arklay Research Facility, Management Training Facility, Lisa Trevor, and NE-Alpha parasite all things that a researcher may want to look up.
