This is the first crew I'm gonna play, regular good guys. Everyday heroes.
We're gonna play with a random refuge, roll a dice to see which safe haven the crew have been able to find. I rolled up a church.
I'll describe the bits used, items in game and character stories under the photos. I've gone with WYSIWYG on all their starting gear.
Father Job is a priest and has been so for many years. When all hell broke loose he was a week from retirement. First he found himself lucky, in the bad situation, still being in charge of the church and starting to organize helping from there.
He was surprised however how few people came to the church however. He was sure they would have been filled with people.
When Wade came to the church, he quickly became the leader. Job still runs the church, but Wade is a better organizer and leader - making all the decisions when going out.
Painting: Nearly all black, when a few dark grey highlights. a white collar and metal on the shotgun breaks it all up.
Starting equipment: Pump-action shotgun, knife, medical supplies and a bible.
Parts: Warlord project Z survivor, bible arm has been bend with hot water. Shotgun arm from Modern Military sprue, with shoulder pocket cut off.
Carla is a nurse and married to Father Job. When society broke down she worked for a bit at the hospital - but it quickly became chaotic. Feeling her skills better used elsewhere, she stocked up on supplies to help the community from the church.
Starting equipment: Automatic pistol, knife, medical supplies
Kid, neutral - Alice
Alice and her parents belonged to the church before the apocalypse. Not going every Sunday, but occasionally. After her parents died, Alice first went to the houses of friends - all abandoned. She made it through the city to seek help at her school - which had fallen to zombies as well. Finally she went to the church where Father Job and Carla took her in.
Starting equipment: Knife
Rolling for a random refuge, it was fitting my characters nicely to find a church. The group was already figured out be then - so that was a great roll. Here's a few shots of the survivors in their home, refitted to work better for them.
