Ok, sounds good. Also, those of us working in hospitals or a technie will almost certainly have bio suites which could give us some time as well.
We also need to decide what the symptoms of the disease will be. We obviously want it to be bad but we don't want it to incapacitate all those that got sick for the rest of their lives. We want them to be able to heal from the illness.
I was thinking a muscle and organ degenerative illness accompianied by large white pustules on the skin.
stage 1 (1 week after infection) Patient begins to experience extreem flu-like symptoms including: high fever, difficulty breathing, and lethargy.
stage 2 (2 week mark) flu symptoms continue, large white pustules appear on the skin
stage 3 (2 1/2 week mark) white pustules begin to burst, emitting a fowl smelling puss, muscles begin to degenerate, organs also begin to fail in order of: Kidneys, Liver, pancreas, lungs, and finally heart and brain.
stage 4 (3 week mark) death.
Virus is also antibiotic and magic resistant.
Method of infection (ex: air, water, contact) does not become clear until further study of virus.
That's just my idea, any thoughts?
Edit: I think we can go ahead and start the RP, the first few posts will be more of your life and your daily schedule more than anything else, the virus will appear after a few 1 or 2 days (of the rp characters life)
Try to make at least 1 post every other day if not every day. However, don't go more than 2 posts a day unless it's a direct dialogue between you and another charater in the story. This way no one gets left behind. If you don't post for more than 5 days then your character will either be killed of or the other RPers will take control of your character. The only exception is if you let everyone know before hand that you won't be able to RP for so and so amount of time for so and so reasons. No, being lazy is not an excuse
