    Wind in the Stomach

    Post by Faith Wynters on Tue Jun 17, 2014 1:16 pm

    Welcome to Engda—a wild and untamed paradise, virtually untouched my modern civilization. From the lush rain forests to the mountain highlands to the white sandy beaches, Engsa is considered the pearl in the necklace of islands dotting the water of the eastern Pacific Ocean. For many, it is Heaven on Earth — a place of peace and pristine beauty where travelers can leave the worries and cares of the world behind. Until very recently, much of the island was wild and primitive and totally untouched by the modern world. Even though the capital was founded by settlers in 1895, many places deep in the interior still have never been seen by western eyes.
    It is the location of the popular Royal Palms Resort as well as many other hotels and settlements. Engsa’s lush tropical beauty offers many natural wonders, from verdant rain forests to mountain highlands to virginal white sand beaches. It's a sportsman's paradise with world-class rock climbing, fishing, hunting, sailing, and kayaking.

    Nestled in the hills above the most pristine white sand beaches in the Pacific, the Royal Palms Resort offers every luxury. The acclaimed architecture of the five-star resort blends seamlessly with the natural beauty of Engsa Island. The Royal Palms Resort offers exceptional service and every modern amenity. The 127 spacious, climate-controlled rooms offer a spectacular view of either the jungle highlands or the Pacific Ocean. All the first-class accommodations offer a private balcony or a patio where the guests can enjoy a cocktail and enjoy warm, equatorial breezes scented with the heady perfume of rare tropical blossoms.


    Engsa’s resort (which is pretty much the only place tourist’s venture) is a paradise filled with almost anything you could ever imagine. Albeit expensive, the Resort is the best of the best for tropical escapes. A problem, however, has arisen in the mist of paradise. It started in the deepest parts of the jungle where only tribes of natives and wildlife could be found. It was reported that people were first seen walking from the deep forests, covered in blood. They attacked whoever got near them, biting at their flesh and feasting upon whomever they could kill. It was believed to be an isolated incident, and it was only spoken about in passing between guests. Most saw it as a myth; some sort of tale strewn together by children, but soon it was obvious that this was no tale.


    The infection the first few had spread to those bitten and soon, the infection had streaked across most of those on the island.  Only thirty-six hours after the initial appearance, at least sixty percent of the island inhabitants are dead or walking around with the infection. Some walk slow, ambling about waiting for something still human to come into sight, but others are smarter. They traverse the island, searching for those few still trying to hide in bungalows. They have not learned how to open doors, but they get smarter every day. The thing that makes them most dangerous, however, is that they run. Fast and hard, some have seen them outrun dogs within the city to feast upon their flesh. Those are the ones to look out for.


    Vacation wasn’t something you did often. Whether it was money that was the problem or finding people to go with you, you didn’t vacation—especially not like this. Whether you went out on a whim, had business on the island, or you won an all-expense paid trip, you are here now. At the height of tourist season, you’ve decided to come to the beautiful island to enjoy a much needed escape from the grind of life along with any other ventures you originally had planned.  You are one of the many few survivors that have not either gone insane or resorted to joining a looting gang that kills anyone and takes anything they need. You have been hiding in your room since it all started, eating what little food you had brought back to the room with you and the complementary-but-we’ll-charge-you-at-checkout food within the refrigerator to try and survive. It’s only been about three days, but your inability to ration your food has led you to have none. The need will soon force you to find more or starve.

    Do what you need to do survive.

    Okay sooo... A few things

    -I would like someone you can post fairly decent posts. (I'm not going to be too picky on that one)
    -A like good bios (that's a plus)
    - Please make your clothing/weaponry reasonable. (You wouldn't have a shotgun or a bullet proof vest if you were on vacation.)
    -Any gender is fine. I don't discriminate.
    Lastly... Thanks :3
